Honor By Living Life to the Fullest

Monday, May 29th, 2017

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™

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™

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.

Live For Today

As befitted a woman who was Queen of her own life, she decided to live today with love, humor and grace. - Queenisms™

Often, if you didn’t have the best childhood you may have come away from it with feelings of anger and resentment.  We bring those feelings forward into our lives now coloring relationship at home and work.  But, it’s our choice how to approach each day and once you decide to claim your power and own your beauty it becomes a lot easier.  At this point you might think you aren’t very powerful or beautiful but you are.  We are all born with the power and beauty that makes us who we are and guides our choices in living life in a joyful way.

Daily Gratitude List

Finding her daily gratitude list was harder some days than others. Today she was grateful she had teeth to grit. - Queenisms™

Finding her daily gratitude list was harder some days than others. Today she was grateful she had teeth to grit. – Queenisms™

The first thing on our gratitude list is always our sense of humor.  Life has a way of tossing a lot of twists and turns our way but with our sense of humor firmly in place we find it much easier to negotiate them.  It always seems so easy to spot the negative things in our lives which is why it’s good to have a gratitude list to check against them.  At the end of the day when tallying it all up there are more things to be grateful for than not.

Fresh New Start

Brand new day. Fresh new chance. She took a deep breath and started again. - Queenisms™

Brand new day. Fresh new chance. She took a deep breath and started again. – Queenisms™

Each day is a new beginning and there is no limit to how many times we can begin again.  The key is to not beat ourselves up for needing or wanting to start over.  We learn an equal amount from success and failure so we shouldn’t be afraid to experience both.  If we truly understand that it’s our ego that is brittle and that our spirit is endlessly resilient we wouldn’t be afraid to begin a new adventure every day.

Never Too Late To Be Happy

Most childhoods fall between getting a pony for your birthday and living just inside the gates of hell.  Whether you thrived or suffered as a child you have the power right now to treat yourself with all of the love and respect you want and need.  We’re not saying go out and buy yourself the pony but we are talking about giving yourself the gift of unconditional love.  When was the last time you looked in the mirror and asked yourself, “What can I do today to make you happy?”  It’s a powerful experience and you are so worth it.

Perfection Takes the Fun Out of Life

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Oh jeepers, she thought. Nobody is perfect and life's a lot more fun because we're not. - Queenisms™

Oh jeepers, she thought. Nobody is perfect and life’s a lot more fun because we’re not. – Queenisms™

We all have that idea in our head of what the perfect woman would do – how she would look, dress, cook and keep her home.  That woman doesn’t exist anywhere on the planet.  We love Martha Stewart but she did flick our perfection button for a while.  We guarantee that Martha does not live the perfect life that she has portrayed on TV and neither do we.  Trying to make everything perfect takes the fun out of right now.  If you’re serving someone a cake that you made, they’re not judging the way the cake looks, they feel special that you spent your valuable time making it for them.  Save your free time for love and friendship and leave the perfectionism to television shows.
