Hello To Your Future

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

She decided to take a vacation from "would've, should've, could've." It was so wonderful, she never went back. - Queenisms™

She decided to take a vacation from “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve.” It was so wonderful, she never went back. – Queenisms™

Living a life full of regrets for things we “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve” done is not fun or productive.  Letting go of past choices and moving on does require a bit of practice but the results are so worth it – you are worth it!  All the choices we have made and the experiences that we’ve had because of them, have made us the women we are right now.  And, what we have learned and the courage we have gained makes it possible for us to keep moving forward to make better and more positive choices today and in the future.

Walk Away From Negativity

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

It was her choice. She could let negativity kick her in the pants or she could walk away. She put on her shoes, opened the door and said, "Buh-bye now." - Queenisms™

Negativity is like a magnet, it pulls people, places and things into our lives that we don’t need.  Letting go of our own negativity and the people in our lives who bring their own drama with them is a choice and we get to make it every day. It requires a bit of practice to see our lives with gratitude for what we have instead of anger and resentment for what we don’t have.  This simple practice will ultimately open the door for all things positive to walk right in.

Never Too Late To Be Happy

Monday, April 17th, 2017

She reminded herself that it was never too late to have a happy childhood. So that's exactly what she gave herself. - Queenisms™

Most childhoods fall between getting a pony for your birthday and living just inside the gates of hell.  Whether you thrived or suffered as a child you have the power right now to treat yourself with all of the love and respect you want and need.  We’re not saying go out and buy yourself the pony but we are talking about giving yourself the gift of unconditional love.  When was the last time you looked in the mirror and asked yourself, “What can I do today to make you happy?”  It’s a powerful experience and you are so worth it.

Being Who You Truly Are

Friday, April 14th, 2017

She chose to live her day as a powerful, intelligent woman who had the ability to navigate the day with grace and humor because that's who she truly was. - Queenisms™

If you gathered 100 women in a room and asked them what they thought of themselves, you would be surprised that 99.99% of them had low self-esteem and the other micro percent were just not admitting it.  We are so much more than the foolish things we have come to believe about ourselves.  We all have the ability to choose how to live each day and so why not choose to live it with your sense of humor in tact and continuously nurturing the understanding that you are perfect just the way your are.

Perfection Takes the Fun Out of Life

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Oh jeepers, she thought. Nobody is perfect and life's a lot more fun because we're not. - Queenisms™

Oh jeepers, she thought. Nobody is perfect and life’s a lot more fun because we’re not. – Queenisms™

We all have that idea in our head of what the perfect woman would do – how she would look, dress, cook and keep her home.  That woman doesn’t exist anywhere on the planet.  We love Martha Stewart but she did flick our perfection button for a while.  We guarantee that Martha does not live the perfect life that she has portrayed on TV and neither do we.  Trying to make everything perfect takes the fun out of right now.  If you’re serving someone a cake that you made, they’re not judging the way the cake looks, they feel special that you spent your valuable time making it for them.  Save your free time for love and friendship and leave the perfectionism to television shows.

Let Go of Negativity

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

She decided to stop hanging on to negativity and instead let it just pass right through her. She had finally realized that it was her choice. Life didn't have to be so hard. - Queenisms™

She decided to stop hanging on to negativity and instead let it just pass right through her. She had finally realized that it was her choice. Life didn’t have to be so hard. – Queenisms™

We all have a friend, family member even co-worker who never has anything good to say and is always surrounded by a cloud of negativity.  You feel like you need to take a shower or at least a few breaths of fresh air after you spend time with them.  The two choices to deal with this are gently let these people go out of your life or imagine letting their negativity travel right through you never stopping until it hits the earths core.  Why not use your imagination to help heal your life.  It’s your choice, life doesn’t have to be so hard.

Listen to Your Queen Voice

Monday, April 10th, 2017

She decided to turn up the volume on her Queen voice. The one that said she was brave, strong and worthy of all good things in life. - Queenisms™

She decided to turn up the volume on her Queen voice. The one that said she was brave, strong and worthy of all good things in life. – Queenisms™

We all have a chorus of voices whispering in our head.  It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong, it’s often just the echo of something negative someone else said to us.  We’re talking about the quiet but important voice that warns us not to step off the curb when a car is coming.  We call it our Queen voice and if you listen hard enough you will also hear it saying, “You are worth of all things good in life.”  It’s time to turn up the volume on this positive voice.

You Are Unique

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

One day she realized there was no one in the entire world exactly like her - she was unique. She decided to start enjoying the beautiful, valuable, brilliant woman she was. - Queenisms™

One day she realized there was no one in the entire world exactly like her – she was unique. She decided to start enjoying the beautiful, valuable, brilliant woman she was. – Queenisms™

It seems the media would have us think that we need to all look alike, act alike and be alike.  What a boring world it would be if that were true.  It is our individuality that makes us beautiful and interesting no matter what our age.  We are each unique, there is no one else exactly like us – even identical twins are different and individuals.  We are all rare and unique and it’s time to celebrate how extraordinary we each are.

Planning the Big Dreams

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

She decided to spend ten minutes just day dreaming. It didn't hurt anyone and it was the perfect way for her to plan the big dreams. - Queenisms™

She decided to spend ten minutes just day dreaming. It didn’t hurt anyone and it was the perfect way for her to plan the big dreams. – Queenisms™

When we were younger it was okay to lie in the grass and stare up at the clouds and daydream about things we wanted to accomplish or to have in our lives.  Who made the rule that you can’t still do that.  We still need time to recharge and revive and to continue making plans for ourselves.  Making plans and creating dreams for ourselves doesn’t ever end, it’s a life long gift we give to ourselves.  So find a sunny spot and let the day dreaming begin!

There’s Always Something More

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

You don't have to be twenty-one to have your whole life ahead of you. There is always something more. - Queenisms™

You don’t have to be twenty-one to have your whole life ahead of you. There is always something more. – Queenisms™

You can make choices to start a new life right now.  You don’t have to be young or fresh out of school – you can make the choice and start taking the steps towards fulfilling a dream you’ve always had. If you’re feeling trapped or stuck the chances are that the only thing in your way is you.  Say out loud what you want and start taking the small steps necessary to make it happen. It doesn’t matter if you’re 18 or 108 – there is always something more.
