Square in the Eye

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

Look doubt square in the eye the second it enters and think about the very best possible outcome.

The person you fear, the situation you fear, feel the strength you have within you.

When you think:

I’m not enough

Remember in the self belief you have.

You are not alone.

You have your faith and your belief in yourself.

That combination is stronger than anything that could come up against you.

You will always come home to you and that is a wonderful place to be.

If Someone Tells You…

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

No ContactIf someone tells you…

That you can’t you can.

That you won’t; you will if you are determined.

That you’ll fail, you might but you will get back up if you are determined.

If another person tells you…

You are not good enough; you are absolutely better than good enough as long as you believe with every fiber of your being that you are and the more you believe it and tell yourself you are the more you will start to truly believe it.

If another person comes along and tells you…

That you don’t know what you’re doing; it’s a sure sign that they have no idea what they’re doing and are hoping you’ll believe them so they can feel better about themselves.

If someone else tells you to listen to them because they have your best interests at heart pay very close attention to what your gut tells you about this person.

When you pay too much attention to what those outside yourself are telling you about yourself you are not paying enough attention to what is taking place inside of you and what you are telling you. Be kind and gentle when communicating with you and let yourself know each and every day how much you truly love yourself. To do so is a game changer.MomBadge100x100trans

Give Yourself a Reprogramming

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

If you believe life will not get better and that you do not have what it takes to move forward successfully in relationships, career, or in any other way it’s time to give yourself a reprogramming.

Being in destructive relationships includes the one you’re in with yourself. When you have been put down, badgered, belittled, ignored, or physically, emotionally, mentally, or sexually abused, it is easy to believe that you cannot do anything right or are not as good as others.

It is easy to think this way because at some point in your life or maybe throughout life you have listened to others who have told you that you are some how defective or are missing something and because of this will always  fail.

If whatever you believe and/or whatever recording you play over and over in your head is negative that noise can be deafening.  Silence the noise by playing a new recording–one that is positive uplifting and accurate. Memorize this recording and play it loud. Write it out and stick it to a wall where you will see it every day. So for instance, if the recording you play is: I’m a loser and will never ever make it in life; change it to: I am smart and strong and I will have a great life!

Start playing the new recording today. Play it over and over until you believe it. When the old negative recording starts to creep back into your thoughts focus on drowning it out with the new vibrant positive one.

Instead of being your own worst enemy concentrate on being your best friend. Don’t let ghosts from the past and naysayers in the present have power over the way you view yourself!

Past Future and Present

Monday, July 11th, 2016

You can’t change the past

And it’s not wise to force the future.

Be true to yourself in the present. What’s true for you might not jive

with what’s true for others but to lie to yourself and call anothers truth

your own puts a lock on a life of despair.

Give Time to Yourself

Saturday, December 19th, 2015

No ContactPurposefully give time to yourself–by yourself. Our days are filled with noise. Noise creates stress that keeps our bodies in a constant state of alert. It is difficult to escape sound however you can make a point taking time out and getting away from it as best you can. Your mind needs the stillness and a break from television, radio, voices etc. Try a nature sounds cd.

Give Yourself Grace

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

When you show a smile though inside you cry–

Give yourself grace

When your bank accounts low and your bills are high–

Give yourself grace

When dinner is late and the kids are crying–

Give yourself grace

When your mate is brooding and he thinks it’s your fault–

Give yourself grace

We give to others without batting an eye

We fear if we don’t we’ll be left high and dry

When we don’t give ourselves the gift of our grace

We’ll feel completely worn out by the end of the day

Life isn’t easy so don’t beat yourself up

Because when you do it’s a sign you’re giving up–on YOU!

You’re worth your own grace

It’s the one gift you and only you can give to yourself

This post is dedicated to my friend Gail who continues to teach me about giving myself grace.

Put Your Oxygen On First!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

I know, you’ve probably heard this many times…take care of yourself first!Yet why is it so easy to drop everything for a loved one and then find ten reasons why you shouldn’t take a break, close your eyes, meditate, get a message, take an evening walk etc.

We’ve got to come first!

I’ll be thinking about this when I board a plane in a couple of days:



What Makes You Come Alive

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

Do not ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that because what the world needs are people who are alive.

Your Task

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.
