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™

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.

There’s Always Something More

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.

Letting Go Of Old Anger

Friday, March 31st, 2017

She had a lot of anger about things that had happened to her in the past. She made the decision to let it go. That's how a victim becomes a survivor. - Queenisms™

We all have things from our past that make us angry and, if we need it, we should never be afraid to ask for professional help.  In the end, whether you choose to get help or not, you have to make the decision to let go of the past.  If you don’t it will always get in the way of your future and do you really want to waste your precious time that way.  You are the only one who can make the choice between victim and survivor. Why wait any longer?

Leading An Extraordinary Life

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

She didn't feel the need to chatter on about every little thing. She was far too busy leading an ordinary life in an extraordinary way. - Queenisms™

It’s our choice how we want to lead our lives. We have chosen to think of ourselves as ordinary women, leading extraordinary lives. Our experience has taught us that we are all more alike than different.  Looking over the fence into someone else’s life might cause you to think the grass is greener over there but the truth is we all have problems to live with and solve.  We are all just ordinary women and showing up every day with our humor, kindness and courage intact is what makes our lives extraordinary.

Bye-Bye Drama Queens

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

She ever so gently said bye-bye to all of the drama queens in her life. What a relief. - Queenisms™

Do you have a friend in your life that you go to for support and comfort but always come away feeling worse about yourself?  How about a friend who takes and takes but never gives anything back.  You may very well have an infestation of Drama Queens in your life.  You may want to spend a few moments reflecting on why you allow people like that in your life and then gently let them go –  simply don’t make yourself available to spend time with them.  You may feel lonely for a bit but we guarantee that if you let go of the Drama Queens, you are opening your life to allow new and more positive friends in.

 

An Important Discovery

Monday, March 27th, 2017

She thought, "Who cares if they like me or not. I love me." She had made the most important discovery of all. - Queenisms™

She thought, “Who cares if they like me or not. I love me.” She had made the most important discovery of all. – Queenisms™

Realizing that it doesn’t matter who likes you as long as you love yourself is the key to the freedom of being yourself.  All of the hours we spend trying to change the way we look, act or talk would be free to do something else with. Also, the advantage to being confident in yourself is that nothing is more attractive than someone being their authentic self.  It seems like a really good time to show up with your power and self-appreciation in tact.  If not now, when?

Life Is A Grand Adventure

Friday, March 24th, 2017

One day the realization hit her that life was a grand adventure. She decided she was woman enough to enjoy it. - Queenisms™

It’s really all about how you look at things.  Is the glass half full or half empty?  Is life a drudgery to get through or is it a grand adventure?   Wouldn’t you rather think of life as a glorious adventure with you as the brave, bold and brilliant woman who is living it?  Since it’s your choice how to perceive the situation why not go for the positive choice.  We know you are woman enough to do it

 

Everything You Need To Have A Great Life

Friday, March 10th, 2017

For today she decided to take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the other. Deep down she knew she already had everything she needed to have a great life. - Queenisms™

What do you think you need before you can be happy?  We met a woman once who wanted to be a print model but didn’t have any teeth and was unable to make herself go to the dentist. We explained to her that she needed to get out of her own way and slowly but surely start making different choices. It’s habit to get in our own way and it’s a simple positive choice to move forward towards the life we deserve and want.

Life Can Be Hard But Don’t Quit

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

There was a moment when it all seemed too hard and she almost quit. But she persisted and boy, oh boy, was she glad she did. - Queenisms™

There was a moment when it all seemed too hard and she almost quit. But she persisted and boy, oh boy, was she glad she did. – Queenisms™

We’ve all had experiences that seemed too hard to get through or survive – but we always do.  There’s the unattractive moment of just wanting to crawl back in bed, pull the covers over our head and give up but that doesn’t really work, does it?  Persistence is such a great old-fashioned word that just doesn’t get used enough and yet we all do it every day.  We persist at living life and trying to be the best woman, daughter, sister, mother and friend that we can be.  And, boy, oh boy aren’t you glad we do?

Experience Makes You Wise

She had made some foolish mistakes but those experiences had helped her become the wise, courageous woman she was today. - Queenisms™

Whether from lack of experience or lack of knowledge we have all made mistakes.  Sometimes the repercussion of our choices was mild and sometimes severe but these choices have shaped our lives.  We are the sum of our experiences and the woman that we are now is because of the choices we have made in the past.  Isn’t it time to forgive yourself for your mistakes and move on?  Everybody deserves a second chance and giving that to yourself is a precious gift.
