Permission To Be Happy Again

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!”

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!

 

Grab Your Freedom and Fly

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

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.

Take Good Care Of Yourself

Friday, June 30th, 2017

She knew she felt better about herself when she looked good. So she decided to take better care of herself because if she didn't who would? - Queenisms™

She knew she felt better about herself when she looked good. So she decided to take better care of herself because if she didn’t who would? – Queenisms™

It’s so easy to care for others and often so hard to care for ourselves – but if we don’t do it, who will?  It’s one of those interesting cycles of life – if you work at taking care of yourself you feel better and if you feel better you look better.  We are all worth the time it takes to build our health and our bodies so why not take the steps to start doing it right now?

What Are You Waiting For?

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.

Honor By Living Life to the Fullest

Memorial Day was created to remember and honor all who have died while serving in our country's military. She chose to do so by living her life that day and every day with joy and to the fullest. - Queenism™

As a child Memorial Day always meant school was almost over and summer was coming soon.  It was a long 3 day weekend involving friends, family and food on the grill.  Understanding the true reason behind the creation of Memorial Day didn’t come until adulthood.  It’s important to have a day to honor fallen soldiers, their families and the ultimate sacrifice they made for our country.  We also choose to honor them every day by living our lives to the fullest and being filled with gratitude for the freedom we enjoy.

Trust Your Instincts

Some things were worth mending, and some had worn too thin to repair. Experience had taught her to trust her instincts on which was which. - Queenisms™

Experience is what shapes us and makes us who we are.  It’s invaluable when making decisions and when you combine that with instinct, it’s like having a built in compass to happiness.  We like to call instinct our Queen Voice.  It’s the strong but quiet voice that tells you this person, place or thing is not good for you.  We all have this voice but the key step is using your experience as a guide and actually listening to what the voice is saying and then giving yourself the gift of following the advice.  It takes a bit of practice but it is so worth it.

Know Who Has Your Back

She knew who had her back. And, the knowledge was priceless. - Queenisms™

We all have family and friends that we love but there are only a few people in our lives who really have our back.  We’re talking about the person who loves you unconditionally – no matter what and is there to support you come thick or thin.  Having one or more people like that in your life is a priceless gift.  The only catch is in order to have someone like that in our lives we have to offer that gift in return.  The world is full of brilliant woman who willing and able to be a good friend.  If you don’t have one, isn’t it time to begin the adventure of looking for one?

Straighten Your Crown and Let’s Roll

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

She straightened her crown and said, "I'm ready, let's roll!" - Queenisms™

She straightened her crown and said, “I’m ready, let’s roll!” – Queenisms™

Backbone, courage, spunk, grit, fortitude, guts, gumption – we all have more of these qualities than we realize.  Life has a way of testing us and no matter what we think, we always pass with flying colors and move on to the next lesson bringing along our new found knowledge.  Learning to trust in our resilience comes with practice and experience.  We love the visual of a strong woman looking in the mirror, straightening her crown and saying to herself, “I’m ready, let’s roll!” – just as she heads out the door.  Why not give it a try?

You Are A Warrior Queen

She had learned to be a strong and bold Warrior Queen who had her own back. - Queenisms™

Being a Warrior Queen doesn’t mean you’re out in the street fighting with your fists or a large stick!  It means you have tapped into the limitless river of courage that flows through us all and are brave enough to stand up for your family, friends and yourself.  Being brave enough to be a Warrior Queen  doesn’t mean you’re not afraid, it means you have made the decision to walk through the fear to find the adventure on the other side.  This is the kind of courage that makes you a Warrior Queen.
