Live Life Your Way

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Her realization that there was no right way or wrong way to live life set her free. She tossed out her out-dated rule book and finally began to live. - Queenisms™

Her realization that there was no right way or wrong way to live life set her free. She tossed out her out-dated rule book and finally began to live. – Queenisms™

We have all grown up with lot’s of rules – don’t run with scissors or you’ll fall and poke your eye out, don’t lean your chair back too far or you’ll fall and hit your head, etc!  There are a lot of good rules that have kept us safe but the idea that there is a rule book to follow that tells us the right or wrong way to live life is not true.  It’s time to toss out the old rule book and celebrate the life you are living.  It’s never too late to start the adventure.

In Charge of Your Own Happiness

It was no one else's job but hers. She was the one in charge of making herself happy. - Queenisms™

It was no one else’s job but hers. She was the one in charge of making herself happy. – Queenisms™

We’ve all looked for something outside of ourselves to make us happy.  A person, place or thing that we thought would make us feel good about ourselves but it never lasts.  And, don’t you wish you had a nickel for every time someone told you happiness was an inside job!?!  You could be rich in nickels and still unhappy because no matter what – happiness is indeed an inside job. You are the only one who can create happiness for yourself.  Isn’t it time for you to make the choice to accept that job?

Honor By Living Life to the Fullest

Monday, May 29th, 2017

Memorial Day was created to remember and honor all who have died while serving in our country's military. She chose to do so by living her life that day and every day with joy and to the fullest. - Queenism™

As a child Memorial Day always meant school was almost over and summer was coming soon.  It was a long 3 day weekend involving friends, family and food on the grill.  Understanding the true reason behind the creation of Memorial Day didn’t come until adulthood.  It’s important to have a day to honor fallen soldiers, their families and the ultimate sacrifice they made for our country.  We also choose to honor them every day by living our lives to the fullest and being filled with gratitude for the freedom we enjoy.

Enjoy Yourself a Heck of a Lot

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

She decided that if you come from love and let go of the fear of being judged, you and every one around you will enjoy yourselves a whole heck of a lot more. - Queenisms™

Nobody likes the feeling of being judged.  It happens all of the time, someone may judge what you say, how you live or how you look.  The truth is we are all more alike than different.  We are all blood, bone, flesh, dreams, hopes and fears.  Everyone has loved ones – mothers, fathers, friends, neighbors and we all want lives that are filled with love and respect.  Don’t you agree we will all enjoy ourselves a heck of a lot more  in this world  when we make the choice to live and let live.

Straighten Your Crown and Let’s Roll

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

She straightened her crown and said, "I'm ready, let's roll!" - Queenisms™

She straightened her crown and said, “I’m ready, let’s roll!” – Queenisms™

Backbone, courage, spunk, grit, fortitude, guts, gumption – we all have more of these qualities than we realize.  Life has a way of testing us and no matter what we think, we always pass with flying colors and move on to the next lesson bringing along our new found knowledge.  Learning to trust in our resilience comes with practice and experience.  We love the visual of a strong woman looking in the mirror, straightening her crown and saying to herself, “I’m ready, let’s roll!” – just as she heads out the door.  Why not give it a try?

Live For Today

As befitted a woman who was Queen of her own life, she decided to live today with love, humor and grace. - Queenisms™

Often, if you didn’t have the best childhood you may have come away from it with feelings of anger and resentment.  We bring those feelings forward into our lives now coloring relationship at home and work.  But, it’s our choice how to approach each day and once you decide to claim your power and own your beauty it becomes a lot easier.  At this point you might think you aren’t very powerful or beautiful but you are.  We are all born with the power and beauty that makes us who we are and guides our choices in living life in a joyful way.

Fresh New Start

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Brand new day. Fresh new chance. She took a deep breath and started again. - Queenisms™

Brand new day. Fresh new chance. She took a deep breath and started again. – Queenisms™

Each day is a new beginning and there is no limit to how many times we can begin again.  The key is to not beat ourselves up for needing or wanting to start over.  We learn an equal amount from success and failure so we shouldn’t be afraid to experience both.  If we truly understand that it’s our ego that is brittle and that our spirit is endlessly resilient we wouldn’t be afraid to begin a new adventure every day.

When They Talk Behind Your Back

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Whatever they said about her behind her back didn't matter because she knew the truth. She was loving, brave, loyal and the powerful Queen of her own life. - Queenisms™

We don’t have any control over what anyone else thinks or says about us. Our job is to be the best woman we can be and simply keep our eyes on our own path.  When other people feel the need to comment on our lives it’s often because they are jealous, insecure and most definitely immature. Learning to not take life so personally is a life long practice that allows us freedom from other peoples negativity.

Walk Through Your Fear

Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

She was sick and tired of being sick and tired. So she decided to walk through her fear and make a change. - Queenisms™

She was sick and tired of being sick and tired. So she decided to walk through her fear and make a change. – Queenisms™

It’s hard to make changes but when you finally get tired of the pain of where you’re at, then you do it.  Change is always about facing our fears.  It’s funny how the fear of the unknown is more frightening than what we are going through at the moment.  It’s like jumping into a lake full of cold water on a hot summer day.  You want to cool off but you know the water is going to cold and finally you just do it – and just that quickly the coldness is gone and the water is so refreshing.  What were you waiting for?

Guide Yourself to Happiness

She would gladly listen to other's opinions but she wouldn't let anyone tell her what to do anymore. - Queenisms™

She would gladly listen to other’s opinions but she wouldn’t let anyone tell her what to do anymore. – Queenisms™

Friends, family and sometimes even strangers, will offer you advice about how to live your life.  It’s good to listen to what they have to say but when you’re the Queen of your own life the final choice is yours.  It’s painful living a life that someone else has chosen for you but it’s never too late to claim your power and move in the direction you have always wanted to go.  In the end the only one you have to please is yourself.
