What If You Woke Up and Did Something Completely Unexpected?

What if you woke up and did something completely unexpected, out of the norm and crazy? Do it today, right when you wake up & tell me about it.

I wrote this on my Facebook wall last night/early this morning at around 12:20 am.

I just had this urge to completely forge my own life so it wouldn’t be so filled with routine, overworking myself and imbalance.  Last night I had a dream & I was registering for classes at the SRJC again (which I may need to do in about a week when classes start). The guy asked me why I was taking classes and I said to pay off my student loans. But I didn’t want to register for classes again. The guy was being very disrespectful towards me, and was making degrading snide comments towards me. He was working behind a counter, and I told him that I could work anywhere. And when I said it to him, out loud, I realized that I could work anywhere.

When I woke up this morning, a little before 8 am, I felt energized. It felt great! I went to sleep a little passed 2 am, so I was surprised that I felt so good, but I think it’s because of the consistent self-love work I’ve been doing these past few days. Writing about it makes all the difference and lends way toward a lot of revelations and help.

I also realized when I woke up that I could work anywhere. All the work I do, I do from my computer. I can edit anywhere. I can write anywhere. I can do social media work anywhere. I can live anywhere and work anywhere. I don’t have to limit myself. The one thing holding me back is money & the reason why I’m taking these classes is because I can’t afford to pay my student loans. At first I liked taking them, but now that I know where I want to put my life’s focus, I just see them as taking my time and holding me back.

I still may have to take classes for one more semester to defer my student loans, but having that dream and saying in my dream that I could work from anywhere, and waking up and saying it to myself took this weight off my shoulders. It made me realize that taking the classes to defer my loans wasn’t my only option. My eyes aren’t open to a better option yet, but I know I’ll see one soon. And if one doesn’t appear before classes start, I’ve created a plan, goals and milestones to get myself to a financially stable place so I won’t have take classes next semester, and so I’ll be able to move out of my parents house & support myself on my own. In my dream, and when I woke up, lying in bed, I felt like I had this epiphany, like nothing is holding me back from getting what I want. I’m most certainly not holding myself back anymore. I think it was just my mindset that was still a little negative towards classes that would take away my time from the Love Warrior Community & my other projects, but now my mindset is on board too now.

Also, that quote I wrote above that I wrote on my Facebook wall last night:

What if you woke up and did something completely unexpected, out of the norm and crazy? Do it today, right when you wake up & tell me about it.

Well, I woke up, changed my mindset, woke up happy, went to the bank to deposit a check, which was the 1st thing on my to-do list for today, then I posted my mom’s self-love post, am writing mine, and then I was going to ride my bike to the gym. But I call from my sister asking if I would like her to take me to the gym and Jamba Juice (my caffeine) while she ran some errands. Before I wrote my self-love post last night, she asked me how she could help me. Then she read it, and called me asking if she could drive me to the gym. 🙂

If you put out what you want into the world, people will help. Ne’s helping me with more me time & social time. 🙂

But did I start today doing something unexpected? Not necessarily, but from 12:20 am to 2:10 am ish, I started to declutter my room. I mean seriously declutter my room. It was so amazing. Getting ready of halted and hold energy and allowing room for new energy to fill my space. 🙂 I got a lot done, and day by day, I’m excited to get more done. 🙂

  1. Nice! Thanks for sharing your process and that clarifying dream! Your subconscious is on board with our Self-Love 10 minute challenge! I bet that dream took 10 minutes or less! 🙂
    Isn’t it amazing how much energy comes from realizations?
    I didn’t do anything completely unexpected, but I did do something out of the norm this morning before getting out of bed. I stretched my toes back and massaged the arch of my feet before stepping out of bed like my acupuncturist had suggested. That actually may be amazing. My first action was to care for my body before I even got out of bed!! Amazing, and hopefully not unexpected from this day forward!

  2. That’s great that you stretched your toes and massaged the arch of your feet before stepping out of bed. We can make a lot happen before we get out of bed. These past 3 mornings, since writing self-love posts, I’ve had great mornings before I even left my bed.

    I woke up this morning with the revelation that I can work from anywhere and that I didn’t need to continue to put mental constrictions on my life and happiness. The two days before, I woke up, and smiles while still in bed. I felt energized. Self-love is energizing. I have been waking up alert and happy. Caffeine isn’t as powerful as the exciting energy of self-love.

    That’s good that you took the advice of your acupuncture and stretched your body before you got out of bed. Stretching can feel so good for the body. How are you feeling now after your second acupuncture appointment?
