Queen of Your Own Life

Hang On To Hope

September 18th, 2017

The fact is every single thing has a beginning, middle and end. You just have to hang on tight to hope even when the end doesn't seem to be anywhere in sight. - Queenisms™

Everything has a beginning, middle and end.  If we were giants maybe we could see past the horizon to the end but we’re only human so we have to hang onto hope until the end inevitably arrives.  We all hang on to hope at some point in our lives, you are not alone.

Sharing Laughter

Oh sure, she had some regrets. But making people laugh was not one of them. Queenisms™

No regrets, just always keeping in mind that laughter is the best medicine and sharing it with all we come in contact with!

Making Good Choices

She decided to declare it Imperfect Friday and then have a wonderful, guilt-free weekend. As Queen, she could make decisions like that. - Queenisms™

Our lives have a way of winding us up till we’re full of fear and anxiety.  How about making the choice to take a vacation from these feelings and just enjoy yourself.  As the Queen of Your Own Life you can make decisions like that and then live them.

Give Yourself What You Give Others

September 14th, 2017

She decided to practice loving herself completely and unconditionally. It was time for her to give to herself what she so freely gave to her family and friends. - Queenisms™

She decided to practice loving herself completely and unconditionally. It was time for her to give to herself what she so freely gave to her family and friends. – Queenisms™

We give love and support to our family, friends, pets and even strangers but are we as quick to give it to ourselves?  It’s time for us to start treating ourselves with the love and kindness we give others because if we don’t do it, who will?  Try looking in the mirror, make eye contact and say, ” I love you and I have your back.”  You may feel a bit silly but it’s very effective.

Just Be Yourself

September 13th, 2017

It was a relief when she realized you don't have to earn the right to enjoy your life by being perfect. All you have to do is be yourself. - Queenisms™

It was a relief when she realized you don’t have to earn the right to enjoy your life by being perfect. All you have to do is be yourself. – Queenisms™

We create so many rules and regulations for ourselves.  What if we just said, “Go ahead and enjoy yourself right now!”  We’re not saying don’t clean  your house, or do the laundry – we’re just saying is it really wrong to let the dust bunnies fend for themselves a little bit longer and go for a walk?  We don’t have to strive for perfection because we’re perfect already, no matter what.

Your Bold Adventure

September 12th, 2017

She decided to stop thinking of her life with fear and instead see it for what it was, a bold adventure being led by a very brave woman. - Queenisms™

It’s our choice how we want to live our lives.  We can hide in bed with the quilt pulled over our heads or we can move forward through our fears.  We can search for like-minded friends to give us support and make the choice to see our lives for what they are – bold adventures being led by some very brave women.  Good choice.

How to Open the Door to Happiness

September 11th, 2017

She took a deep breath, thanked herself for all she did to survive, let go of the anger that was holding her back and imagined herself opening the door to happiness. Wheee. - Queenisms™

Have you ever stopped and thanked yourself for all of the things you do to keep yourself going?  It might be a good time to give a nod of thanks and to think about letting go of any residual anger from the past. Anger gets in the way of moving forward towards a life of happiness and fulfillment and why would you want to live like that.  You’re doing a good job so why not say bye bye to anger from the past, thank you to yourself for surviving and walk straight towards happiness.  Wheeeee!

Permission to Shine

September 8th, 2017

She remembered herself as a little girl, full of fun and wonder. The truth was that she still had all the best qualities of that perfect little girl. All she had to do to let the world see them was to give herself permission to shine. So she decided to do it. - Queenisms™

We still have all of the best qualities of the child we were even if we do see a gray hair or a wrinkle or two when we look in the mirror.  It’s so important to hang on to the joy, wonder and curiosity we had as a child and all we have to do is get out of our own way.  Life has a way of putting obstacles in our path but it’s our choice how we are going to handle them.  Why not grant yourself permission to shine and see the happiness it brings.

Be Part of the Solution

September 7th, 2017

She wanted to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. So she decided to do her best daily to treat every one with love, kindness and respect. - Queenisms™

Sometimes it feels good to mope and whine but it doesn’t really get you anywhere and you just become part of the problem.  It’s the wise woman who decides to be part of the solution and you can do it in a gentle, small every day way.  All you have to do is treat every one with love, kindness and respect – even yourself.

You Can Handle It All

September 6th, 2017

Good news. She really was capable of handling anything that came her way. - Queenisms™

We are all so much stronger and resilient than we know.  Think of how much life you’ve already lived and the impossible things you’ve already overcome.  What makes you think you’re going to stop being able to do that now?  You are the Queen of Your Own Life and part of that is being a true and courageous Warrior Queen.  You can handle it all.
