Nurture Yourself – Focus Power


zen-zen[1]Unfortunately, this has been an extremely busy week for me making it difficult to visit your blogs or participate in many of the challenges I enjoy. Here is a reblog … I hope this helps you learn about something in yourself that you hadn’t realized needs nurturing.

If you haven’t read it … it’s new.
If you have read it … it’s a refresher to begin.

Namaste ….

imagesCAA3C4OZIn keeping with my word a month to Nurture Yourself – the word for November is Focus. To focus (estar enfocado – Spanish) is to direct your attention at something specific; or as in a camera to make something clear; maximum clarity or distinctness of an idea; a series of thoughts, visions or feelings that happen; an idea or vision that is created in your imagination and that is not real; something that you have wanted very much to do, be , or have for a long time.



As you can see from the cartoon above, we all want to feel whole or complete about our inner self as much as we do about our outer self. Sometimes, we mask the way we feel inside by showcasing ourselves on the outside with pretty things. Fashion manufacturer advertise and promote to this weakness.

We don’t want to see the lack of focus about our inner self. But, we should. There is more to focusing than creating an image of who we think we are or should be. Our entire life depends on us focusing even if it’s just to drive a car. How many times have you parked somewhere only to find yourself lost because you have forgotten where you parked.
Lack of focus

We’re lost in our day to day issues in our overstimulated life. We haven’t the time to stop, breathe or focus. We need to be on the go to achieve and succeed in the many things we want that we can’t stop. We’re distracted. We lose our ability to see all in us.
A quiet time to pull back from all of the tensions, anxiety, pressures and worries is what’s needed to get us back in focus

5 Steps to Help Us Focus …. from Troy Carter

•Focus requires not thinking about the past or the future
• Focus concerns only what is happening right now
• Meditation focuses your attention on the present moment
• During meditation the rhythm of your breath can become your focus
• With daily meditation, focus comes more frequently and more easily


Nurture Yourself to focus by taking short amounts of time every day to meditate on learning how to focus more intently. Let your issues float away. Communing with nature can help you to find your inner circle in your day. Practice and repetition of quiet moments will help your inner self-grow and your outer self-glow.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. Very nice! I am making this first priority. Not so easy in a busy world. But possible. ♡
    Much love and a little space 🙂


    • When we try to give ourselves permission to be first on the list
      guilt steps in and says ‘Oh no, you have to do that.’ Our focus
      blurs from feeling everything else should be first.
      When we feel whole we can do better with our lives and the lives
      of those who depend on us including all that has to be done daily.
      Blessings ….
      Happy Easter !!!!
      Isadora ❤ hugs ❤

  3. I’m glad you reposted this and that I had the opportunity to read it. Focus is something that I have to work hard at sometimes. I tend to relate focus to the work I have to do, but it is also wise to relate it to meditation or some other passive pursuit.


    • Many of the Nurturing Yourself posts were missed. I am going by the
      responses. Perhaps, more have seen and appreciated at a distance.
      But, one can never have too much information on making sure we nurture
      ourselves. After all, if we are whole we can do better for others.
      Happy Easter …
      Isadora ❤


  4. An excellent refresher from the heart … and the video helps deliver the message to the soul.


    • The videos are a way for me to showcase the beauty of life
      because of the hectic rush of life. They may be missing the
      message to take time to be calm and you’ll be able to focus
      better. I think it pulls it all together for those who do better
      with visual learning. After all, we do live in a techno world. XD
      Thank you so much for enjoying my way of making everyone
      know that they should take time to nurture themselves so they
      can be whole. ~~~~ : – )
      Happy Easter …
