Be Your Own Brilliant Self

Monday, June 19th, 2017

She wanted everyone to like her, which caused her great anxiety. She decided to no longer pretend to be more or less than she really was. She would be her own brilliant self and that would be way more than enough. - Queenisms™

How much time do you spend trying to be something more or less than you really are?  We work so hard to impress others and then diminish ourselves when our intelligence or power might threaten someone else.  There is such a delightful and relaxing freedom in just being ourselves.  If people don’t like you for yourself then they were never your friends to begin with.  Being our brilliant self is so way more than enough.

Every Day A Brand New Adventure

She reminded herself that every day was the beginning of a brand new adventure. It was her choice to make. - Queenisms™

The one thing in life we have control over is how we are going to react to each new day.  We have many choices such as cower in fear under the covers or we can wake up each morning full of resentment and carry that with us out into the world.  A wise and positive choice is to believe that each day is a new adventure and that you are the woman who is bold and brave enough to live it.  Which do you prefer – fear, resentment or adventure?  It’s your choice.

Live Life Your Way

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Her realization that there was no right way or wrong way to live life set her free. She tossed out her out-dated rule book and finally began to live. - Queenisms™

We have all grown up with lot’s of rules – don’t run with scissors or you’ll fall and poke your eye out, don’t lean your chair back too far or you’ll fall and hit your head, etc!  There are a lot of good rules that have kept us safe but the idea that there is a rule book to follow that tells us the right or wrong way to live life is not true.  It’s time to toss out the old rule book and celebrate the life you are living.  It’s never too late to start the adventure.

Why Not Take A Chance?

Saturday, June 10th, 2017

She took a single step from "what if" toward "why not." Then she took another, and another, and another until she realized she'd created quite a path. Queenisms™

Fulfilling our dreams is not just about taking a step from “what if” to “why not”, it’s about deciding, “if not now, when?”  We have come to believe that everything we want is right on the other side of fear.  Some people like to race towards their destination while others get stuck in their fear and have trouble moving forward.  There is no right way or wrong way – it’s just your way.  So, why not start taking tiny steps through your fear so that one day you can look back and see the long and beautiful path you have been on. If not now, when?

Help Yourself First

Healing others came naturally to her. But, she decided it was time to focus some of her mighty healing power on herself. She knew you can't really help anyone else until you help yourself. - Queenisms™

When we are on a flight we always marvel when we  hear the flight attendant remind us that to put on our own oxygen mask before we try to help someone else with theirs.  Helping yourself first is good advice not just for air travel but for all of life.  Learning to put ourselves first and letting go of the feeling of being selfish takes a lot of practice but aren’t you worth it?

In Charge of Your Own Happiness

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

It was no one else's job but hers. She was the one in charge of making herself happy. - Queenisms™

We’ve all looked for something outside of ourselves to make us happy.  A person, place or thing that we thought would make us feel good about ourselves but it never lasts.  And, don’t you wish you had a nickel for every time someone told you happiness was an inside job!?!  You could be rich in nickels and still unhappy because no matter what – happiness is indeed an inside job. You are the only one who can create happiness for yourself.  Isn’t it time for you to make the choice to accept that job?

Enjoy the Adventure

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Sometimes she still felt afraid but more often than not she really got a kick out of who she had become and the adventure she was on. She thought, "Ain't life grand?" - Queenisms™

When the pain of living a life filled with fear becomes too much we can finally make the choice to let go of the fear and live life for the adventure it is.  It is a choice and it takes practice but on the other side of that fear is the ability to see yourself for the accomplished woman you have become.  You have survived a lot already and you will be able to handle the rest.  You are a strong and brave Warrior Queen.

Hello To Your Future

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

She decided to take a vacation from "would've, should've, could've." It was so wonderful, she never went back. - Queenisms™

She decided to take a vacation from “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve.” It was so wonderful, she never went back. – Queenisms™

Living a life full of regrets for things we “would’ve, should’ve, could’ve” done is not fun or productive.  Letting go of past choices and moving on does require a bit of practice but the results are so worth it – you are worth it!  All the choices we have made and the experiences that we’ve had because of them, have made us the women we are right now.  And, what we have learned and the courage we have gained makes it possible for us to keep moving forward to make better and more positive choices today and in the future.

Everything You Need To Have A Great Life

Friday, March 10th, 2017

For today she decided to take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the other. Deep down she knew she already had everything she needed to have a great life. - Queenisms™

What do you think you need before you can be happy?  We met a woman once who wanted to be a print model but didn’t have any teeth and was unable to make herself go to the dentist. We explained to her that she needed to get out of her own way and slowly but surely start making different choices. It’s habit to get in our own way and it’s a simple positive choice to move forward towards the life we deserve and want.

Courage For Us All

Thursday, February 2nd, 2017

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.
