Let Go of Judgement

She decided to be herself and let others do the same. Life was so much easier when you didn't judge. - Queenisms™

Life is too short to do anything but be yourself – the freedom is delicious.  Living in a world full of judgement makes it really hard to find joy.  Why not make the choice to stop judging everyone including yourself.  It feels good to be part of the solution.

Nothing You Can’t Handle

She decided to stop wasting time labeling her life experiences as good or bad. Instead she used her time to remind herself that she was brave, strong and creative enough to handle it all. - Queenisms™

When we look back over our lives we see that when something “bad” happened really good things followed and vice versa.  Why waste time labeling and just live.  Your experiences have already proven that you are brave, strong and creative enough to handle life.

Life Doesn’t Have To Be So Hard

It’s your choice – why hang onto the negativity that swirls around us everyday?  Make the choice to visualize it passing right through you into the ground where it will make great fertilizer for the plants.  Life doesn’t have to be so hard.

Be Yourself

It really wasn't any of her business what anyone thought of her. So she decided to be herself. - Queenisms™

We can get so bogged down in worrying about what other’s think of us but the truth is we have no control over what they think, say or do.  So we may as well let go of the fear and anxiety and just be ourselves.  The haters will leave and the other billion people will be attracted to us because we are authentic and real.  True story.

We’re Going On Vacation!

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Laughter Is the Best Medicine

You won’t be seeing our newsletter again until mid August because we are going on a much deserved working vacation!  We are getting together for our annual retreat and to talk over ideas for a new book we’d like to write.  We will be working hard but we will also be enjoying every single moment of it.  We hope you’re having a wonderful summer and we’ll see you when we get back!

Take Good Care Of Yourself

Friday, June 30th, 2017

She knew she felt better about herself when she looked good. So she decided to take better care of herself because if she didn't who would? - Queenisms™

It’s so easy to care for others and often so hard to care for ourselves – but if we don’t do it, who will?  It’s one of those interesting cycles of life – if you work at taking care of yourself you feel better and if you feel better you look better.  We are all worth the time it takes to build our health and our bodies so why not take the steps to start doing it right now?

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

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

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.
