Open The Door To Adventure

Monday, February 20th, 2017

 

She was done waiting for the world to come to her. She decided to open the door to adventure, confident that she was woman enough to handle and enjoy it all. – Queenisms™

We have all spent a lot of time waiting for things to be perfectly aligned – but what if that never happens?  Waiting for life to happen is one way to do it but how about running out and meeting life head on?  When you eliminate fear of failing how far can you go?  We decided a long time ago that at the end of our lives we wanted to know that we had worked hard, laughed hard, made a difference and created a life of great adventure.  We believe you are woman enough to fling open the door to a fun and fulfilling life.

 

It’s Okay To Not Be Perfect

By realizing that it was okay to not be perfect, she grew stronger every day. - Queenisms™

We believe that perfectionism can be fatal to fun.  When you get buried under the details of creating a perfect event or perfect life you lose track of what’s really important – love and friendship!  We’re not talking about trying to do the best job you can at all times.  Instead we’re talking about making the plan, doing your darnedest and then letting go so you can enjoy it.  We think life wasn’t meant to be so hard.  What do you think?

Stop Punishing Yourself

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Sometimes, to get it all done, she felt like she was moving faster than the speed of light. She decided to take a few moments during the day to stop and think about how much she had accomplished rather than punish herself for how much was left to do. Queenisms™

Taking a few moments during the day to give yourself some positive feedback about what you’ve accomplished is a good way to calm down and relax.  Sometimes it’s hard to realize how much you’ve already done if your too busy worrying about what you still have to do.  We believe that perfectionism can be harmful to our health and learning to let go a little bit is worth the herd of dust bunnies under the bed.

 

You Are Resourceful

Friday, February 3rd, 2017

Life often gave her lemons. So she made lemonade, lemon merengue pie, lemon baked chicken, and lemon blueberry cupcakes. Experience had made her a very resourceful woman. - Queenisms™

We’ve all had good event that we’ve looked forward to turn into something really difficult and on the other hand, something we were dreading turned out to be easy and maybe even fun.  In our lives we’ve stopped labeling experiences as good or bad – it’s all just life.  So when the lemons start rolling in just accept them because life is so much easier and a lot more fun with a positive outlook.

Courage For Us All

She believed a deep river of courage runs within us all. - Queenisms™

She believed a deep river of courage runs within us all. – Queenisms™

We have already been tested many times in our lives and survived and there is no reason to believe that we won’t be able to continue to do so. The quandary is how to do it without letting it all damage our spirit. So it’s important to remember that it’s the hard times that take off the rough edges and polish us to a beautiful shine.   And, the light from that shine comes from within and shows us and those around us a woman who is loving and kind as well as brave and resilient.

Get Your Glow On

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

She wanted to show the world who she really was - a smart, funny, quirky, imperfect and completely adorable woman. It was time for her to get her glow on. - Queenisms™

Is there anything more boring than someone who is trying to be perfect?   Being yourself – smart, funny, quirky, imperfect and completely adorable is a wise choice to make.  Instead of trying to be something you’re not or trying to be like someone you see on TV or in magazines, life is so much easier when you embrace the silly, fun you!  Being yourself gives you a glow that will shine bright.

Always Something More

She never lost hope. Her life experience had taught her to hang on because there is always something more. - Queenisms™

Looking back over our lives there were so many times when we were younger that we were ready to give up because we thought life was over.  Death of loved ones, lost jobs, broken relationships have certainly knocked the wind out of our sails but here we are, still sailing into the wind.  It turns out that time does heal all and at the end of the grief or pain there is always more life to be lived.  What a grand adventure.

Free From Other Peoples Toxic Drama

Thursday, December 29th, 2016

There had been friends and family who had caused her a world of anger and hate. She decided it was time to take back her power by using this simple action and phrase, "As I breathe in calm and breathe out anger, I set myself free from other people's toxic drama." She was most definitely the Queen of her own life. - Queenisms™

There had been friends and family who had caused her a world of anger and hate. She decided it was time to take back her power by using this simple action and phrase, “As I breathe in calm and breathe out anger, I set myself free from other people’s toxic drama.” She was most definitely the Queen of her own life. – Queenisms™

We’ve certainly all been there – mistreated or betrayed by a friend or even a family member.  We didn’t want to keep giving away our power to these crazy makers so we came up with this simple tool to empower ourselves and let them go.  Taking in a deep calming breath and then breathing out as you visualize the anger flying away, is a great way to begin setting  yourself free from other people’s toxic drama.  Life doesn’t have to be so hard.

Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary Life

Monday, December 12th, 2016

She was an ordinary woman living an extraordinary life. She really liked that about herself. - Queenisms™

We always thought of ourselves as just two woman from the Midwest and that is exactly who we are, but we are so much more.  We strive to be loving, kind, generous and a supportive presence in the world of the family and friends around us.  We work daily on setting strong boundaries so people will trust and respect our word and because it is so much easier and calmer to lead an honest life.  We think this kind of living is the basis of an extraordinary life and we’re grateful for this knowledge.  We think you’re leading an extraordinary life as well!

Queen Of A Lot

Her world was not too big and not too small, it was just right. - - Queenisms™

Her world was not too big and not too small, it was just right. – – Queenisms™

We certainly spent a lot of time when we were younger trying to “fix” other people who we thought needed help.  On the other hand, we also spent plenty of time avoiding situations that we didn’t want to deal with.  When we finally put the focus on ourselves it was such a breath of fresh air.  We remind ourselves daily that you can’t help anyone else unless you help yourself first.  We walk slowly towards and through our fears and seek to surround ourselves with like minded friends who have our backs.  We are so grateful for our friends.  How about you?
