Get Back On The Horse

Monday, November 27th, 2017

She'd slipped and slid, sniped and snapped and had definitely eaten a wee too many carbs. But she went out and got right back on that horse. What a gal! - Queenisms™

It was a long weekend with family, friends and food – the good news is it’s always a good day to have a good day.  So get back up on that horse and ride!

Time To Let Go Of Fear

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

She was the only thing that stood between her and the woman she wanted to be. She decided it was time to let go of her fear and just do it. - Queenisms™

Everything we want is right on the other side of fear.  We’re the ones that create that fear and we’re the only ones who can let it go.  Isn’t it time to walk through your fears and become the woman you were meant to be?

Stop Underestimating Yourself

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

She decided to stop underestimating herself. She was made of exceptionally strong stuff and the proof was that she had survived it all and was still here to talk about it. - Queenisms™ Day 5 of Vintage Photo Booth Week

Day 5 of Vintage Photo Booth Week

We are all so much stronger than we realize.  It’s time to understand that we can survive anything as long as we keep our sense of humor in tact and that we just need to remind ourselves that we are  wise and brave Warrior Queens.

The only approval we need to try and get is our own, what a relief!

Be A Woman Of Your Word

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

She had become a woman of her word. Her "yes" meant yes and her "no" meant no. It had taken years but now, that was the way she rolled. Queenisms™ Day 6 of The Roaring Twenties week

She had become a woman of her word. Her “yes” meant yes and her “no” meant no. It had taken years but now, that was the way she rolled. Queenisms™

Day 6 of The Roaring Twenties week

Learning to set strong but gentle boundaries takes a bit of practice and the willingness to feel uncomfortable as we first learn to take care of ourselves.  The payoff of having our word trusted and respected as well as living a resentment free life is more than worth our time.

Bold Adventure, Brave Woman

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

She needed 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 Day 2 of The Roaring 20’s week!

It’s Day 2 of The Roaring 20’s week!

Doesn’t it make more sense to see your life for what it is – a grand adventure and you’re the brave woman who is courageous enough to live every bit of it.  It’s your choice.

 

Stop Being Afraid

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

More than anything she was tired of being afraid. So she made the decision to let go of the past, not worry about the future and to live only in the now. It would take practice but she was worth it. - Queenisms™ Put on your hat! It's Day 3 of Women Who Wear Hats week.

Put on your hat! It’s Day 3 of Women Who Wear Hats week.

Being afraid is a choice so if it’s not working for you why not make another choice?  It takes a bit of practice but making the choice to not live in fear and understanding that in this moment everything is alright is so worth the time.  You deserve a chance to live an anxiety free life, why not give yourself that gift.

Feel Better At The End Of The Day

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

She decided it took a lot less energy to be positive than it did to be negative. And you felt a lot better at the end of the day. - Queenisms™ It's day 2 of Women And Their Cats week!

When we surround ourselves with people, places and things that are negative we absorb the negativity.  It takes a bit of practice but ultimately it does take a lot less energy to be positive than it does to be negative.  It’s your decision to make so what’s it going to be – negative or positive?

Back To Me Month

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

Instead of "back to school" month, she decided that September would now be "back to me" month. She'd finally realized that taking care of herself didn't mean she was selfish, it meant she was sensible and smart. - Queenisms™

Instead of “back to school” month, she decided that September would now be “back to me” month. She’d finally realized that taking care of herself didn’t mean she was selfish, it meant she was sensible and smart. – Queenisms™

September always feels like a new beginning after all the summer fun.  As Queen of Your Own Life you can make the choice to have any month be “back to me” month so why not start now.  Taking care of yourself and finding a place to put yourself on the “To Do” list doesn’t make you selfish it makes you wise.  You can’t take care of other’s until you take care of yourself.

Be Yourself

Monday, September 25th, 2017

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.
