She gave the gift of inspiration to every woman on her list. ~ Queenisms
OK, we know we’re biased but may we suggest that our books and ebooks might make a wonderful gift, either for yourself or for a woman who could use some uplifting encouragement? Here’s the link to Amazon.com, where both the books and the ebooks can be found. Our ebook of Queenisms is on sale through December 6th and the book is also discounted during the holidays. http://bit.ly/Queengift

She made her wish list for the holidays and then she realized that she was the only one who could give herself the things she most desired. And she decided to deliver everything on the list – to the best of her ability – so as not to disappoint herself. ~ Queenisms™
What’s on your list, Queens? Can you allow yourself to fulfill your own wish list?

She thought she had a lot of flaws but the truth was nobody could see them except for her. She decided it was time to embrace her beauty instead of denying it. – Queenisms™
Why is it that we focus on the subtle, small or nearly invisible flaws that only we perceive and cannot see what others see in us? If you could ask your friends and family to name the first thing they “see” when they look at you, what do you think they’d say? Most likely they’d say things like:
- beautiful smile
Let’s do the same for ourselves. You are beautiful, not only physically (because we all are beautiful) but you are beautiful in spirit as well. Dare to name something you like about yourself in the comments below. We promise you’ll find the list something you’ll want to read, again and again.

Nothing pleased her more than to say “why thank you kindly” to those who congratulated her after earlier voicing their opinions that she would never succeed. ~ Queenisms™
Being gracious in our success is as important as being tenacious in our struggles. Those who did not wish us well were fearful and wallowing in their own distressful and limited thinking. Forgive them and in fact, thank them. And promise yourself you will not repeat the cycle of doubting others and passing on that kind of defeating attitude to them. When someone shares their dreams with you, they’ve given you something sacred to hold in your heart. Nurture that. Respect that precious obligation.

She realized there were so many more things right in her life than wrong. So she decided to spend the whole day basking in her gratitude. – Queenisms™
We are so grateful to have you in our lives. And to all our American Queens, Happy Thanksgiving! And to all our international Queens, we’re grateful for you as well. Love, Queen Cindy and Queen Kathy
Basking in gratitude sets a habit in our minds that overrides negative thoughts and feelings. Practice not just feeling grateful but basking in it, celebrating it and up leveling your feelings of gratitude.
Is there someone or something you’re grateful for? Let’s start a list and inspire one another.

She wielded the healing power of laughter and it was her crowning glory. ~ Queenisms™
Things happen in life, some good and some not so good. Even in the darkest moments, there is a glint of humor. That little speck of laughter is your inner strength straining to get to the surface to heal you. That laughter longs to be released. And, laughter can be your gift to others. Help one another see the light moment within the heavy one. Not all laughter needs to be belly laughs. Sometimes a smile is just a baby version of a hearty laugh. Go ahead. Wield the power.

She didn’t want to waste any of the holiday season this year with having hurt feelings. So when she realized that no one could hurt her feelings unless she let them – she decided not to let them. What a relief to not take life so personally. – Queenisms™
Deflect hurt holiday feelings and defuse these emotional landmines by reminding yourself that everyone brings a lot of baggage to the holiday table. We can feel left out, judged, slighted, mocked or worse. So remember that sometimes the perpetrators of painful moments are themselves hurt and wounded. Better yet, try this nifty phrase that helps us get through a judgmental moment:
“That’s interesting that you feel that way. Thank you for sharing.”
With this one phrase, you acknowledge but do not take in the comment or action. You simply deflect. What else could we do when we feel hurt? Let’s make a list of resources to help one another.

She held up a mirror for her friends so that they might see in themselves what she saw in them. Beautiful possibilities that could blossom at any moment. ~ Queenisms™
Hold that mirror high and proudly show another woman that she is perfect just the way she is. Let her know that what you see if kindness, humor, graciousness, love, joy, generosity or whatever attribute you truly see. Remind her that she is more than the sum of her doubts, fears and stumbles. She is your friend and that is something worthy of celebration. Who do you want to reflect in that glorious mirror?
