It’s Your Choice Don’t Settle

Saturday, January 20th, 2018

She had a vision for her life that did not include settling for the version of her life others thought she should be living. - Queenisms™  Note from Kathy & Cindy: Sometimes those who love us tamp down our dreams because they know the path we've chosen is hard and they fear for us. That's ok. But what we envision for ourselves is important - keep moving forward and do not be deterred. You matter. Your dreams matter. We promise. We'd love to hear about the vision you hold for your life. It's never too late to live the life you were meant to lead.

Give Yourself Joy

Friday, December 8th, 2017

She put on her hat and declared, "Let's get this party started!" She had decided to bring more joy into everyone's life, and especially her own. - Queenisms™

It is our choice how we handle each day.  Doesn’t it seem like a good idea to try and bring more joy into our life and the lives of those around us?  Being positive doesn’t mean you’re an idiot, it means you are very, very wise.

Bring Joy To Yourself Today

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

She woke up every morning with an undoable list of "should's" running through her head until she learned to pause upon wakening to ask herself one simple question. What can I do for you today to bring you joy? - Queenisms™

We know it seems a bit corny but just try looking in the mirror, make eye contact with yourself and say, “What can I do today to make you happy?”  You have to figure out what will make you happy because no one else can.

No regrets, just always keeping in mind that laughter is the best medicine and sharing it with all we come in contact with!

Treat Yourself to Some Joy

She decided to treat joy as if it were chocolate and give herself a little bit of it every day. - Queenisms™

Barreling through life trying to accomplish as much as we can is one way to do it but what about letting ourselves have small moments of joy during the day.  Walking through my garden today, on my way to my office, I cut a small white gardenia flower.  I put it in a vintage demitasse cup and saucer and have it sitting next to me as I type this.  The scent and the beauty of the blossom in that old pink cup is giving me a wee bit of  joy – I deserve it and so do you!

It’s Your Life So Have Fun

As women, it seems like it’s in our DNA to care for others.   This makes it hard to claim time just for ourselves but if we don’t we often end up feeling like resentment filled drudges!  Giving ourselves the gift of time to read a book, meet a friend for lunch or do something completely new should be a priority in our lives.  This “me” time isn’t about being selfish it’s about giving your brain and body time to rejuvenate because it’s just as important to care for yourself as it is for others.
