The Gift Of Laughter

Monday, February 27th, 2017

She craved laughter and decided to give herself as much as she could get. She was delighted that it was calorie free. - Queenisms™

When you think about how easy it is to find laughter now in this world and how healing it can be, why not allow ourselves to have it more often.  There are TV and radio channels who are devoted to comedy and a massive collection of movies that have been made to just make us laugh.  From a giggle, a chuckle to a full out tears in your eyes belly laugh there is nothing as cleansing as having a good laugh.  It’s easily accessible, can be done legally alone or in a group and has zero calories.  What are we waiting for?

 

You’re Stronger Than You Imagine

She hadn't an inkling what the future held. Yet she showed up and was delighted to find she was stronger and more resourceful than even she imagined. - Queenisms™

Here’s a dose of common sense we all need to hear on occasion – life is going to happen and there is nothing we can do about it so why waste time worrying about it now?  When we are always waiting for the other shoe to drop we miss so much that is happening right now.  Also, you may have noticed, but worrying doesn’t solve a thing.  It’s just a bad habit we fall into and then don’t take the time to get out of.  It’s easier than you think to make the conscious choice not to worry and aren’t you worth it?

Walking Through Your Fears

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

One day she realized that ignoring her problems didn't make them go away - it just made them last longer. So she decided to walk through her fear and face each problem very slowly, one at a time. She was so much stronger and braver than she realized. - Queenisms™

Pick Yourself Up and Try Again

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Things hadn't worked out. So she gave herself 15 minutes to mope, sigh and mutter, "Poor me." After that she was going to pick herself up and try again. - Queenisms™

Life throws things to overcome into our path all of the time.  If we stay in bed under the covers we lose – and life wins.  It’s okay to pull the cover over our heads for a while, everybody does it, but it’s how fast we toss them back and get out of bed that is the sign of recovery, courage and strength.  Fall down, get up; fall down, get up faster; fall down, stand up tall with a smile on your face and move gracefully on.

Show The World What You’re Made Of

Monday, February 13th, 2017

She looked in the mirror, made eye contact with herself and said, "I love you. I always have and I always will. Now let's go show them what we're made of!" - Queenisms™

She looked in the mirror, made eye contact with herself and said, “I love you. I always have and I always will. Now let’s go show them what we’re made of!” – Queenisms™

Glancing in the mirror is something we do a lot during the day to make sure our hair isn’t standing on end or that we don’t have some lettuce stuck in our teeth.  But, when is the last time you actually stopped,  made eye contact with yourself and said how you feel about yourself?  We know it sounds corny but it can be very powerful.  Why not give it a try and see what comes up for you.  It’s a great way to focus on what’s really important, which is you.

When Life Kicks You In The Pants

Friday, February 10th, 2017

She decided that when life kicked her in the pants she was going to kick it back. - Queenisms™

There are many times in our lives when we wanted to stay home in bed with the covers over our head.  Unfortunately, that usually just makes matters worse by prolonging the inevitable.  We think wallowing for a bit is necessary but the healthy part is how quickly you let it go and what you do when you stand up.  You can get knocked down and spring back up again until the cows come home.  You are so much more resilient than you know. We really like that about you.

Never Let Yourself Down

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

She had promised to take care of herself and to never let herself down. She was the Queen of her own life and she was willing to work hard to keep that promise. Queenisms™

It seems like a no-brainer that we would take care of ourselves but making yourself a promise to do just that is a great way to focus your energy on being good to yourself.  It always feels so good to know that there are family and friends who support you but, in the end, knowing that you have your own back is the best safety net of all. It takes a little work but you are worth it.

The Joy Of Being Yourself

She was completely, totally, joyously, blissfully herself. She was a big gulp of fresh air. Queenisms™

We live in a world where we are bombarded with the information that we are not good enough if we don’t look young, thin, wrinkle free or have a perfect figure.  It’s no wonder we find it hard to love, let alone, like ourselves!  The amount of time spent trying to be somebody we’re not is outrageous.  Giving ourselves permission to be ourselves is the key to freedom and a breath of fresh air for everyone around us.  Life doesn’t have to be so hard.

No More Hurt Feelings

Nobody could hurt her feelings unless she let them. She made the decision that this year she wasn't going to let them. So sayeth the Queen. - Queenisms™

Understanding that our feelings can’t be hurt unless we let them is surely the greatest gift of all! We know it’s not easy but actually it’s not as hard as you think to keep your feelings from being hurt – it’s a choice.  People make judgements about us all the time but it’s our own feelings of self worth that are the most important.  It doesn’t matter how many times in the past, present or future that you are told you are not enough – those are lies.  The truth is you are unique, valuable and perfect just the way you are.  Choose yourself, not the negative noodle heads in the world.

Build Your Happiness Now

Life was too short. So she decided to stop living in the past and worrying about the future. She would build her happiness now. - Queenisms™

It’s easy to stay in the past always going over things that happened or second guessing ourselves over choices we should have made.  It’s also easy to spend too much time worrying about what’s going to happen tomorrow, next week, next year!  It is a choice and it takes courage and practice, to stay in the present.   Taking the positive action of choosing to stay in the moment is the way to find the happiness and joy we all crave.  It’s worth the practice, don’t you agree?
