Betsy The Lotus Cow Says – Donโ€™t Stay Comfortable

Hey friends ๐Ÿ‘‹ here’s today’s quote that Betsy would like to share with y’all.

You won’t learn anything if you stay comfortable. Get out of your comfort zone. That’s where real success begins.


It was shared via Twitter this past Friday but I wanted to re-emphasise the quote in this post. It’s worth noting that everyone’s definition of success is different. But one way or another, I think many of us can agree that learning and participating in new experiences requires risks to be made.

Staying in the mode of the “what-ifs” can lead to a mindset filled with complacency. As such, we end up creating our own fears by thinking of the worst scenarios that might happen, should we take those risky routes. We can try our hardest in living a risk-free life. We can try following a path that’s tried and true. There’s some folks that want to stay in the comfort zone until their last days on Earth. And really, that’s their prerogative.

If you’ve been wanting to learn a new skill, take upon a new career, become an activist on a cause that you truly believe in, why wait? What’s stopping you? Some of you may say the following:

  • My spouse / partner won’t support me.
  • My family thinks it’s too risky and won’t bring in money.
  • My friends think that it’s stupid for me to go in (insert field here).

I’ll let you in a secret – some of the people who you love and care about are responding out of fear, jealously or a lack of understanding about the type of work you want to do.

Focus on your own growth, not someone else’s opinions about what you should do. We should start learning to trust in our inner GPS and not some “get successful and rich overnight” schemes.

Growth takes time. There’s no limit. And growth needs to be uncomfortable for us to truly enjoy and appreciate the hard work we put in when we get to the level of our own success, no matter which path we choose.

I wish you lots of love, powerful vibes and plenty of willpower. You got this ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป let me know in the comments on what you want to do and what risks you are willing to take.

If this post resonates with you, tips are appreciated.

Namaste,

Betsy the Lotus Cow Says – Change

Happy Monday, friends! Here’s a quote that Betsy would like to share with y’all:

Change is part of the growth cycle. Understand why the change is happening in your life.

Maybe it’s the stereotypical part of my Taurean nature, but I don’t like change. I like to do things in a routine and remain comfortable. Perhaps it’s a flaw on my own end. Or maybe I’m just lazy ๐Ÿ˜‚

In any case, change is a crucial part in our lives. No matter what point in your life you’re currently experiencing, every change is happening for a reason. Some changes are planned. Some changes aren’t.

It’s important to recognise why these changes are happening. Whether if the answers are immediate or at a later time, it will be known one way or another.

Have you experienced a moment in your life where change occurred and had to reflect as to why it happened? I would love to read your responses below ๐Ÿ’ญ

Namaste,

Diana

Betsy The Lotus Cow Says – Don’t be afraid to fail!

IMG_1292

Happy Monday, friends! I’m starting off a fun series called “Betsy the Lotus Cow Says” where Betsy quips in about life from a moo-tivational and sassy manner.


Betsy’s quote for the day:

It’s okay to fail! That’s how we learn. There’s no such thing as a perfect life.

Oh boy. I tried so hard in not wanting to fail, but it happens. The Moon in Virgo part of me feels the need to make everything perfect and top-notch. Doing half-assed work makes me feel super guilty. However, the Sun in Taurus part of me realizes that I need to chill out. And perhaps for a good reason, too.

What I’ve learned over the past couple of years is that failing is part of our growth process. As much as we don’t want to admit it, failing helps us provide a newer perspective that we never discovered before until now. Whether if it’s career, life, relationships, etc…there’s plenty of opportunities for growth.

I think for many of us, we’re too focused (including myself) that having a perfect plan will set us up for a perfect future. It’s not a linear path all of us take. If you were to imagine your life in a graphical perspective, the line would be filled with ups and downs on the chart. Some points you’ll hit rock bottom. And that’s ok.

Today, I ask you to step aside the perfectionism and embrace those flaws. At the end of the day, we’re all human. Learn from your mistakes and understand that this is part of the larger experience at hand.

Rooting for you on this manic Monday!

Namaste,
Diana

My Favorite Form Of Self Care

Sometimes when things get hectic, I rely on one thing that helps me stay sane (aside from eating food). And that is…taking a nap!

I think many of us take naps for granted, especially when we get older. Of course, handling children and trying to squeeze in a few winks is difficult to do so. That’s why I try my best to take one either during my lunch break or when I’m finally finished with my work. Those 10-15 minutes are pure bliss.

What’s your form of self care?

Namaste,

Diana

Why you should leave an introvert alone

It’s not you. It’s me.

Well…that depends on the person and the situation. Still, I’m selective on how I like to spend my time ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Being an introvert is not about purposely pissing off folks just to be left alone. A lot of times, we just want that solitude to recharge our batteries. I’m pretty sure there are other folks that I’ve declined invitations wonder as to why I don’t want to mingle and socialise.

I’m content living at home, doing my activities and tending to my personal businesses.

Betsy, on the other hand…well, she makes sure to have her boundaries in place ๐Ÿฎ

Introverted peeps – let me know in the comments on how you cope with situations like these.

Namaste,

Diana
