Time To Just Be Yourself

Monday, April 24th, 2017

She decided to just be herself and let the chips fall where they may. Wise Queens do things like that. - Queenisms™

The message is so loud and strong that we are not okay the way we are but that doesn’t make it true.  Letting go of pretenses and just being yourself is the perfect way to find out who are really your true and trusted friends.  It’s also a great way to open your life to let in people who love and enjoy you for who you really are.  Showing up every day and being yourself is like taking a breath of  pure, clean air.  It will make you fell deliciously free.

Being Patient With Yourself

We are more impatient with ourselves than we are with anyone else in our lives.  We would never let anyone else speak to us the way we speak to ourselves.  Everyday life can be so frustrating with the need to rush around and accomplish such a huge amount of work, it’s no wonder we often find ourselves impatient with everyone around us.  That’s why it’s so important to, at least once a day, stop, take a breath and relax.  Perfection can be fatal to fun, friendship and love.  It’s better to get less done and instead treat all the people in our lives with love – especially ourselves.

Let Yourself Shine

Her energy was powerful enough to light up, if not the whole world, at least a ten block radius. She decided to let it shine. - Queenisms™

Her energy was powerful enough to light up, if not the whole world, at least a ten block radius. She decided to let it shine. – Queenisms™

One day we realized we were tired of denying our power and our beauty.  We had listened to other peoples opinions of us and compared ourselves to images we saw in the media and found ourselves lacking.  We were still telling ourselves these same old faulty stories that we had been muttering to ourselves for years.  It was time to stop.  We are all so much more powerful, resilient and beautiful than we give ourselves credit for.  We all have the power to light up our corner of the world if not more!  Why wait?  Let yourself shine now.

 

Let Go of Negativity

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

She decided to stop hanging on to negativity and instead let it just pass right through her. She had finally realized that it was her choice. Life didn't have to be so hard. - Queenisms™

She decided to stop hanging on to negativity and instead let it just pass right through her. She had finally realized that it was her choice. Life didn’t have to be so hard. – Queenisms™

We all have a friend, family member even co-worker who never has anything good to say and is always surrounded by a cloud of negativity.  You feel like you need to take a shower or at least a few breaths of fresh air after you spend time with them.  The two choices to deal with this are gently let these people go out of your life or imagine letting their negativity travel right through you never stopping until it hits the earths core.  Why not use your imagination to help heal your life.  It’s your choice, life doesn’t have to be so hard.

Gratitude For Friends

Friday, April 7th, 2017

She was grateful for the trusted friends she had in her life. She decided to find a way to let them know how much she cared. - Queenisms™

We have all had family and friends who can make us feel bad about ourselves or who have betrayed us.  All we have to do is let go of them and their problems and move on to find new, and this is the important word, trusted friends.  A trusted friend is one who has no agenda for your friendship – they love you unconditionally whether you are at the top or the bottom of life.  All they want is for you to be happy.  We all deserve good friends like this and they are out there.  All we have to do is be open to letting them come into our lives.

Planning the Big Dreams

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

She decided to spend ten minutes just day dreaming. It didn't hurt anyone and it was the perfect way for her to plan the big dreams. - Queenisms™

She decided to spend ten minutes just day dreaming. It didn’t hurt anyone and it was the perfect way for her to plan the big dreams. – Queenisms™

When we were younger it was okay to lie in the grass and stare up at the clouds and daydream about things we wanted to accomplish or to have in our lives.  Who made the rule that you can’t still do that.  We still need time to recharge and revive and to continue making plans for ourselves.  Making plans and creating dreams for ourselves doesn’t ever end, it’s a life long gift we give to ourselves.  So find a sunny spot and let the day dreaming begin!

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

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.

 

Speak Kindly to Yourself

She made the decision to start speaking kindly to herself. That's how you treat someone you love. - Queenisms™

Why do we speak to ourselves so cruelly? Have you ever made a mistake and thought, “Oh, you’re an idiot!”?  We would never let anyone else talk to us the way we speak to ourselves.  It’s just a bad habit we’ve fallen into and it requires a small amount of listening and practice to stop it.    If you keep speaking to yourself in a negative and criticizing way you will begin to believe the story you are telling yourself.  Why not take the time to change that story to something positive instead.  It isn’t any harder to say, “You are a kind and wonderful woman who deserves the best the world has to offer!”  Why not try it?

Life Is A Grand Adventure

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
