You Are Worthy of Happiness

Monday, July 17th, 2017

The fact is there's not a limited amount of happiness in the world. And all she had to do to have some in her life was to understand that she was just as worthy as every one else. - Queenisms™

Sometimes we’ll glance over at someone else’s life and feel like they have something we don’t have.  Other people’s lives always look better from the outside but they have trials and tribulations just like we do.  We are all working towards learning to be strong and courageous women and being happy and the by product of that is happiness.  We are all born worthy of being happy.  Isn’t time to accept that gift and enjoy it?

Permission To Be Happy Again

She gave herself permission to be happy again. Then she looked in the mirror and said "welcome back." - Queenisms™

Often we just get in the habit of feeling sad, angry or having hurt feelings but is that really the way you want to spend your life?  We have very little control over what happens but we do have a choice about how we’re going to react to it.  Keeping your sense of humor and imagination in tact and giving yourself permission to be happy again is something you can practice every day until you’re ready to look in the mirror and say, “Welcome back!”

Living An Honest Life

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?

Don’t Let Them Hurt Your Feelings

Monday, July 10th, 2017

She looked at herself in the mirror and said, "My time is valuable and I'm not going to waste it having hurt feelings. No one can hurt my feelings unless I let them and I've decided I'm not going to let them." - Queenisms™

She looked at herself in the mirror and said, “My time is valuable and I’m not going to waste it having hurt feelings. No one can hurt my feelings unless I let them and I’ve decided I’m not going to let them.” – Queenisms™

Is making the decision to not get your feelings hurt really all it takes?  Yes, it is that simple but it does take practice.  Other people will try and shake your confidence because they are afraid, angry, jealous  – fill in the blank!  You have the choice to not allow their negativity to damage you.  Two things that we find work are to avoid the kind of people that try to make us feel bad about ourselves and use an affirmation like, “Negativity be gone! They only opinion of me that matters is my own!”  Feels a bit silly but oh, does it work!

 

Letting Go Of Negativity

She decided she would let other people's negativity pass right through her, straight into the ground where it would turn to dust and blow away. - Queenisms™

When we are surrounded by people, places and things that are negative we don’t always feel how it affects us.  Of course the best defense is to avoid these things but it’s not always that easy.  We like to use our imagination to heal us and make our lives a bit more fun especially when in the middle of a negative overload.  We simply imagine that only positive feelings stay in our bodies and all  negativity just passes right through us down into the core of the earth where it is burned away by molten lava.  A strong imagination is a great tool for healing and laughter.

Grab Your Freedom and Fly

She wasn't going to apologize anymore for who she was or wasn't. It was time for her to sign her own Declaration of Independence and enjoy the freedom. - Queenisms™

We learn through the years from nay sayers and media that we are not enough. There is a myth that if we change things about ourselves, life will be perfect and we’ll be happy.  The truth is there is a delicious confidence in just being yourself 100% of the time.  The people that are going to like you will do so and that people that don’t won’t – but they were going to do that anyway!  So why not relax and enjoy being yourself.  Life doesn’t have to be so hard.

Learning to Live in the Now

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

More than anything she was tired of being afraid. So she decided to let go of the past, not worry about the future and have the courage to live only in the now. - Queenisms™

More than anything she was tired of being afraid. So she decided to let go of the past, not worry about the future and have the courage to live only in the now. – Queenisms™

When the pain of where we’re at becomes to much, that’s when we finally make the change.  It seems some of us can handle a lot of pain but there is always a bottom and when we get sick and tired of being sick and tired we will start to take the small steps to make a change.  Letting go of the mistakes of the past and fear of the future are important steps to begin to enjoy the now. Aren’t you worth it?

 

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.

A Day To Do What You Want

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

When that list of "should" starts rolling around in your head, take a step back and ask yourself "what do I really want to do?" - Queenisms™

When that list of “should” starts rolling around in your head, take a step back and ask yourself “what do I really want to do?” – Queenisms™

Sometimes it’s important to let go of the idea of what you need to get done and just take some time to enjoy yourself – especially when the weather is nice!  If we don’t give ourselves the gift of some time to just enjoy life, who will?  If your life looks like a long hallway filled with things you need to get done maybe it’s time to just leave the dust bunnies under your bed alone and go do what you want to do.
