Living An Honest Life

Friday, July 14th, 2017

Life was much easier when she was honest with everyone, especially herself. - Queenisms™Living An Honest Life

Life was much easier when she was honest with everyone, especially herself. – Queenisms™

We all have a tendency to tell “stories” about and to ourselves.  We ignore feelings instead saying things to ourselves and others to cover the truth.  Wading through the little white lies we tell to not rock the boat and finally exposing the truth let’s in the sunshine and grants us the freedom of living a honest life.  Don’t we all deserve that?

Go Big Or Go Home

Friday, July 7th, 2017

She woke up thinking "Go big or go home." And she just wasn't in the mood to go home. - Queenisms™

She woke up thinking “Go big or go home.” And she just wasn’t in the mood to go home. – Queenisms™

We believe that it’s true that everything we want is right on the other side of fear.  How many times have you let your fear of failure or ridicule keep you from doing something you really wanted to do.  It’s possible to make positive changes by just taking one tiny step through our fears every day.  The days add up and using the affirmation “Go big or go home,” is a good way to help yourself move forward.  Isn’t it time to get out of your own way and start heading towards the life you want?

Brand New Day

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Fresh new day. Brand new chance. She took a deep breath and stepped out into the world. - Queenisms™

Fresh new day. Brand new chance. She took a deep breath and stepped out into the world. – Queenisms™

There’s a wonderful poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson that says, “Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”  We wake up every day with the ability to let go of the mistakes of yesterday and move into a clean new day.  We can renew our dreams and gather the courage necessary to walk through our fears and continue to create the life we want to live.  Every day is a fresh new day and a brand new chance.  Why not take a deep breath and step out into the world.

Be a Queen Not a Princess

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

She was no longer a princess waiting for someone to save her. She was the Queen of her own life, and she had the courage to save herself. - Queenisms™

She was no longer a princess waiting for someone to save her. She was the Queen of her own life, and she had the courage to save herself. – Queenisms™

When we were younger all of the fairy tales portrayed the princess as being young, beautiful and in search of a prince and all Queens were cold, mean and evil.  Well, the fairy tales were yanking our chains.  As the Queen of your own life you are loving, kind, courageous, valuable and worthy of all good things life has to offer.  You are brave enough to live your life and save yourself.  It’s good to be the Queen.

Definitely Their Problem, Not Yours

Monday, June 26th, 2017

She was an intelligent, beautiful and powerful force of nature. If anyone was intimidated by her it was most definitely their problem and not hers. - Queenisms™

She was an intelligent, beautiful and powerful force of nature. If anyone was intimidated by her it was most definitely their problem and not hers. – Queenisms™

We have absolutely no control over what any one else thinks of us so we might as well just be ourselves.  Don’t you think it’s time for you to be the intelligent, beautiful and powerful woman that you were born to be?  Stop hiding who you are or worrying about what others think because if they don’t like what they see it’s not your problem it is most definitely theirs.

Get Out Of Your Own Way

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

One day it occurred to her that the only way she could fail at life was if she let her fear get in the way of doing what she needed to be happy. So she made the decision to get out of her own way. - Queenisms™

One day it occurred to her that the only way she could fail at life was if she let her fear get in the way of doing what she needed to be happy. So she made the decision to get out of her own way. – Queenisms™

It would be so much easier to blame our inability to change on everything but ourselves but truthfully, we are the problem.  When you sort through all of the puzzle pieces of why we aren’t happy it’s always because we’re afraid – afraid to fail, afraid to succeed, afraid to live and afraid to die.  Making the decision to get out of our own way and risk the adventure that is life is the most rewarding and smartest choice we can make.

What Are You Waiting For?

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

She put on her bathing suit looked in the mirror and said, "Hey hot stuff, what are you waiting for, it's summertime!" - Queenisms™

Why do we let embarrassment and self consciousness stop us from having fun.  There is so much power and freedom in just being ourselves, what are we waiting for?  Let’s put on our bathing suits and go to the beach, jump in the pool or run through the sprinkler in our backyard just like we did when we were kids.  Your body reflects the many battles you’ve been through in your life adventure.  Let’s not be afraid to proudly flaunt our battle scars like the warriors we are.

Why Not Take A Chance?

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

She took a single step from "what if" toward "why not." Then she took another, and another, and another until she realized she'd created quite a path. Queenisms™

Fulfilling our dreams is not just about taking a step from “what if” to “why not”, it’s about deciding, “if not now, when?”  We have come to believe that everything we want is right on the other side of fear.  Some people like to race towards their destination while others get stuck in their fear and have trouble moving forward.  There is no right way or wrong way – it’s just your way.  So, why not start taking tiny steps through your fear so that one day you can look back and see the long and beautiful path you have been on. If not now, when?

Be Who You Promised Yourself To Be

Monday, June 5th, 2017

She decided to start setting strong boundaries because being honest and courageous was the kind of woman she had promised herself to be. - Queenisms™

She decided to start setting strong boundaries because being honest and courageous was the kind of woman she had promised herself to be. – Queenisms™

Have you grown up to be all that you hoped and promised yourself to be when you were little?  We promised ourselves that we would be brave and honest but life can be scary and sometimes we were saying yes when we really wanted to say no. We had problems setting boundaries because we were afraid that people wouldn’t like us. We decided we didn’t want to let those little girls down and began protecting ourselves by setting strong boundaries.  It was uncomfortable in the beginning but it became so much easier to set a boundary.  It takes courage but there is a freedom in living an honest life and it is a promise fulfilled.

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.
