Stop Saying I’m Sorry to Everything and Everyone

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff create daily, original Queenisms, jolts of inspiration.

She was tired of always saying she was sorry when she hadn’t done anything wrong. She decided it was time to begin to stick up for herself. – Queenisms™

You are not responsible for every negative thing that happens in the world. You are not responsible for the choices other people make. You are not responsible for their pain and suffering. You are not that powerful. You are, however, responsible for treating yourself with dignity and respect. Take responsibility where it’s warranted. Now get to it.

Be The Author of Your Own Life

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

Queenisms are original jolts of inspiration from authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

When she stopped making everyone else the author of her life, she finally found her own voice. ~ Queenisms™

Let’s creatively rewrite the story that’s running through our heads. Instead of “she was the victim of circumstance,” let’s rephrase to “she saw herself as filled with unlimited possibilities that she could chose to explore at any moment.” Isn’t that much better? You’re not stuck. You’re just “pre-action” focused. When there’s a boulder in the road, turn your head to the left and to the right and look for a path around the boulder. If you don’t see one, climb over it.

What would you say to a dear friend who was having trouble communicating her own storyline? You’d most likely tell her to focus on the feelings she wanted to evoke and the story she wanted to tell. Let’s tell ourselves the same thing and create a life filled with joy, shall we? You are the author of your own life story and you have creative license to change it.

Life is a Group Sport

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

Queenisms are original jolts of inspiration by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She was running as fast as she could, trying to keep ahead of the pack. When she finally realized life wasn’t an individual race, but a group sport, she began running joyfully to life, instead of from it.
~ Queenisms™

When we compare ourselves to others, we’ll always fall short. But when we surround ourselves with friends who are actively engaged in living their own best lives, we’re supported and encouraged to do the same ourselves. Our mothers were right. The company you keep matters.  Life really is a group sport. Choose your “team” wisely.

Let the Negative Ones Trickle Away

Friday, June 20th, 2014

Queenisms are original jolts of inspiration on friendship, self-esteem, joy and happiness by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

One day she thought, “How can I expect to lead a positive life if I surrounded myself with negative people?” She decided to open her heart and mind to allow more positive people in, and to have the courage to let the negative ones trickle away. – Queenisms™

Do you have the courage to let the negative influences in your life trickle away? It’s not always necessary to kick them to the curb. That takes so much negative energy in and of itself. Sometimes you can just slowly back away, turn your attention elsewhere and disengage, with love.

Say No to Clean Closets

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

Original Queenisms by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff posted daily at http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She held this strong personal philosophy. She knew there would always be closets to clean and work to do, but the moments of pure fun were fleeting. So she guarded those opportunities fiercely and cherished them with all her heart. ~ Queenisms™

If we’d all just say no to clean closets and yes to embracing moment of pure fun, the world would be a better place. Just say no!

Note to Self

Note to Self is an original Queenisms post by Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff of http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She needed to remember to do a few things so she wrote herself a note . ~ Queenisms™

What would be on your note to self? You wouldn’t think we’d have to remind ourselves to breathe, would you? But often we do. Writing down little reminders is a simply and really effective way to set your attitude on the

This Life is a No Whining Zone

Life is a No Whining Zone

She realized that happiness was not a destination. It was a journey. So she decided to enjoy every step. She vowed to make her own
trip a “no whining” zone.~ Queenisms™

Of course we understand that sometimes things become so distressing that a little whining is necessary so we don’t explode. But promise us you’ll keep it to a minimum so as not to miss the truly wonderful, and sometimes very quiet, moments of pure joy on this messy journey called life. Refresh your focus on joy.

Miss Cranky Pants

She didn’t want to be cranky but it always seemed like she had

so much to do and never enough time to do it. She decided to take a deep breath and slow down. At the end of the day, getting every single thing done didn’t matter as much as sharing her love with her family and friends. – Queenisms™

It’s easy to get cranky. There is so much that doesn’t go the way we think it should in life. But giving in to these feelings means we’re missing out on something. Often that something is sharing time with loved ones and friends. Cranky is the thief of happiness.

Other People’s Opinions

Other People's Opinions

She had wasted so much precious time letting her feelings be hurt. So she made the choice to take back her power and no longer let other people’s opinions harm her. She was the Queen of her own life and she could make healing choices like that. – Queenisms™

You cannot control what people think or say. You can only control how you respond to their words. Take the power away from hurtful words and do not absorb anger, hurt, fear and resentment that is driving the mud slinger. Walk away. Stay clean.

You Have a Choice Daily

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

More Right Than Wrong

She had a choice every morning how to live each day. She chose to do it as a brave, caring, kind, capable and intelligent woman because that’s who she was. – Queenisms™

We love vintage images because we can imagine the strength and determination of these women. But the truth is, we could easily post a picture of any of you, every day and image that strength as well. Because, we know each and every one of you has struggled, survived, thrived, fallen again, gotten back up and experienced grace and gratitude. We are all so much more alike than we are different and every single day we have a choice on how we will view our lives. Let’s dare to look at our lives through a gratitude lens today, shall we?  We have a choice, daily, whether to wallow in the struggles of our lives or to focus on the parts for which we are grateful. If that makes us Pollyanna’s, then we say “great.”
