I Need A Judgment Detox!

I was so so so lucky to meet my spiritual guru the other night in Montreal. My Mother and I have been reading Gabrielle Bernstein’s novels for years now. So on the 13th, we went to go see her talk. It was the most incredible experience.

The only problem…I couldn’t stop judging the girl sitting next to me at a Judgment Detox talk. I don’t like to consider myself a judgmental person. I think a lot of people would say that but if we really look at our behaviour are we really as good as we think? I am open-minded and always fighting for equality so why do I make comments that are judgmental about people I don’t know?

I’ve learned that if someone does something I don’t agree with I automatically think something negative about them. “Why are they telling me how to do my job?” “Why won’t they stop talking, no one wants to hear another story about their cat!” etc. I like to think I am judging them because I want better for them.

But back to my story about the girl sitting next to me. My mother and I paid for VIP so the person sitting next to me did too. We brought two friends with us and we were all sitting in our respective rows. Our friends were lucky enough to get the seats right behind us.

My mother is a very dedicated and an expressive listener, especially when she is listening to spiritual things. So am I, and our friends. My mother is all about that “Amen” and “Yes” while Gabby was talking. The girl sitting next to me could not handle it.

I was judging someone judging my family and friends! Every time my mom would move she would roll her eyes or sigh. If my mom was too loud she would whisper to her friend and they would laugh. It was disturbing my experience because I was annoyed that they were being disrespectful.

Toward the end of the show she was texting and I looked over. I am not someone to read texts but this message just jumped out of me so hard I couldn’t help read it. She was texting a friend that was also at the show somewhere how she couldn’t stand my guru and said she wanted to get out of their as soon as possible.

I was enraged. How dare she not see the brilliance of my guru. How dare she judge my family and friends at a seminar about learning how to stop judging.

I had to take a second and realize I needed to use her steps that she was talking about. Use her book. One of the biggest parts of judging is because something happened to you in your past that makes you judge. This girl judging my family was a wound in my from high school when students use to judge me. I was judging her because I didn’t want my loved ones to feel the pain I felt from her judgment.

I learned at the talk that judgment is not something we want to do. It is a self-protection method. We judge because of our own experiences our own mistakes and wounds. I recommend not only seeing Gabrielle Bernstein live because she is amazing and the most wonderful spiritual leader but you learn. If you are open to learning she will teach you. IF you are open to the universe and her guidance, your life will be changed.

What I Loved in January // 2018

I feel like this January went by so quick yet so slow at the same time. When I was listing all the things I was loving this month I felt like I had no clue what I liked. After much thought, I was able to make a little list to share with you guys.

Reality TV

I usually like my good old Netflix but this month I put it away and opted for some reality TV. Now I don’t usually like reality TV. I find it brain numbing and a waste of time. For some reason thought this month I was hooked. I would put on Keeping Up with Kardashians, Botched and My 600lb life just as noise. I would be prepping blog posts or editing youtube videos and the shows would be playing in the background. After a few days of doing this, I suddenly was interested in what was happening.

MacDoesIt

So in youtuber news, I have found my end all be all holy grail fav. I love Mac he is hilarious and just makes my day a better place. I think I have watched all his videos even the old ones. I love the image he portrays its relatable and just good entertainment. I honestly think everyone should go check him out if they want a laugh.

School Sweater

I have been living in my school sweater. I bought it on the first day of school because it was the coldest day of the year and I was freezing. I was crazy cold. I was buying my school books anyways so I just picked it up. I bought it like 3 sizes too big and I couldn’t be happier. It is so warm and comfy, it’s my new favourite sweater. I’m sure I will be wearing it for years to come.

Vitamins

I started taking my vitamins like an adult this month. I was feeling a bit down and a bit sick in December so I thought I would start there. I see a change in just my energy. I have so much more energy in the morning. I’m starting to think it’s because I wasn’t getting enough vitamins. I am currently taking the Centrum multigummies for adults. They taste like candy.

The Body Shop Liquid Lipsticks

I got this set of three for Christmas. They aren’t exactly my favourite liquid lipsticks out there but they’re just so easy to wear. I find them just easy and smooth to apply that I don’t care about the longevity. I keep them in my backpack as a quick go to if I feel like I need a little colour on my lips.

Elijah Wood x Jaime Fine

I’m always looking for new music to listen to. I happened to watch an episode of The Launch that featured these two. I am obsessed. I listen to their songs over and over again. I can’t get enough. Jaime’s voice brings tears to my eyes and goosebumps. I recommend 110%!

WordPress Reader

I really slacked when I started this blog. I didn’t look at the other blogs on this platform. I didn’t think it would help me as a blogger in any way. Boy have I changed my mind. The more I start reading other blogger’s work the more motivated I am to post more. It’s like a small community of people that love the same things I do.

My Perfume

Now, this may be a strange one but I no joke wear this perfume everyday! I love how ROSE from Bath and Body Works smells. It’s just so fresh and yummy. I have a bunch of body mists from Bath and Body Works so I assumed that it would be similar to those ones. Nope, this is a real perfume. It lasts forever and you don’t need that much. The first time wearing it I sprayed so much on and knew I made a mistake only a few minutes later.

So this is just a short list of everything that I’ve been loving this month. I am hoping to do this every month. I have a feeling it’s something that will be nice to look back on in a few years time. What are some things you guys had been loving all of January?

I Dropped Out Of School // Youtube Video

I decided to be brave for the first time and make a youtube video. I really wanted to talk about when I dropped out of school and my journey going back.

I talk about my story and how after fighting for almost two years I was able to graduate high school and go back to college.

Take a look if you’re interested in my story.

I’m a College Student: Through My Eyes

Let’s start with this. I had a bit of anxiety when I sat down for my first class. The last time I went to school full time did not really go too well. I was nervous. I was really scared that I would hate it and drop out again.

For the last couple years of my life, I have struggled with school. I felt unmotivated and just like a failure. I could do a full blog post talking about my struggles with schools if anyone would like.

I was walking around the school between my classes today and felt excited. An emotion that I haven’t felt in years when it came to school. I had walked through the halls of this school a few times when I wasn’t a student here. Now I feel like it’s mine and I am a part of something. It’s like I subconsciously know that I will get the education I need to launch my career. I missed going to school, I missed liking school.

I am hoping that this feeling sticks for the rest of my time in college. It’s nice to wake up in the morning and want to learn. I am finally doing what I want to do. I am getting what I wanted. It took a lot of hard work and dedication but I did it. Here’s to me getting my degree.
