Yup, Just Wait a Minute

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESYup, just wait a minute…or an hour, heck or even a day, when you’re having one of those “days” when everything seems to come crashing down on you.

You know what I’m talking about, we’ve all had them, it’s like a cascade of events that just want to make you pull your hair out and scream.

You can do that if you want, but pulling your hair hurts and screaming, well, it just gives you a sore throat.

Find a quiet spot either in the physical world (or in your mind) and stay there for awhile. it is in the quietness that solutions and peace are found.

Do You Notice Them?

990108468_034Do you notice them…the signs all around you, those little “nods” from the Universe that help guide you?

Or do you ignore them, instead, saying to yourself, “Hey, where’s my sign that I’m on the right track? I’ve been waiting and waiting and yet…nothing!”

Ya know, your “sign” might not be a boulder that rolls in front of your car (in fact,hopefully not) Your “sign” might be something a little more subtle, like a song on the radio, a snippet you catch online, or an overheard conversation.

Those are your signs…but ya gotta stop to listen to them; to see them; to feel them in your heart and then say “that’s it!”

Otherwise, unless you live near a mountain, you’re gonna be waiting a long time for that boulder to roll your way.

It’s A New One!

DesertIt’s a new one…a new week and a new beginning just for you. You cam choose to see it that way; a new opportunity coming your way to make a difference, to start something new or find a new or better way of doing something.

It’s like looking at this picture her of beautiful. wide open spaces and saying to yourself that this is what my week will be like- a beautiful, wide open space for me to carve my dreams on. A wide open highway for me to travel on. A fresh start with sparkling fresh air.

It’s up to you how you will view this new week. I hope you will view it in a way that makes you happy and gives you a greater sense of satisfaction with your life.

So What Are You Doing To Smile?

35920025So what are you doing to smile; what are you doing to laugh?

Yes, you can do something silly; just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you have to be all serious all the time. Sure, we all have responsibilities, but we need to take a break from them from time to time.

Go to an amusement park. Have a pillow fight. Watch a funny movie. Do stuff to make you smile and laugh. In fact, why not,right this minute think about something that cracks you up.

You just laughed, didn’t you? Now don’t you feel a lot better than you did five minutes ago?

Are You Doing It?

015Are you doing it…gossiping? Are you going around “telling tales” about other people?

You know, not only does what you put out there come right back to hit you right between the old peepers courtesy of the Law of Attraction, so when you’re dishing the dirt that dirt is gonna fly right back ‘atcha.

Plus, 99.99999% of the time,the person who’s gossiping with you is going to gossip about you when given the chance. And I can practically guarantee what’s said is not going to be exactly flattering.

So think about that the next time you’re tempted to open your mouth OR when somebody else decides to open theirs. Don’t be part of it. Once you get in the habit of not gossiping you won’t want to do it anymore.

You know what your mother used to tell you “If you can’t say something nice then don’t say it at all.”

Talkin’ To Yourself

990105679_002We all do it…talk to ourselves. But it’s what we tell ourselves that makes all the difference.

Do we build ourselves up, talk to ourselves the way we would a good friend seeking advice?

Or do we speak to ourselves the way we might to someone who was mean and nasty to us?

Make friends with yourself. Want the best for yourself and talk to yourself positively. If you make a mistake, you forgive yourself and move on. You don’t beat yourself up over and over again with words like “I’m soooo stupid! Nobody else would make a mistake like that!”

Would you take to someone you cared about like that? I don’t think so.

So don’t do that to yourself. Cut yourself a break.

Merry Christmas!

990108468_051Merry Christmas to everyone! Have a wonderful day and may all your dreams come true. Have fun and enjoy yourself because you deserve it. And remember to tell all those you love and care about them just how special they are in your life:)

Give It a Rest

990108468_052Give it a rest…give all the “drama” in your life a rest.

Let it all sit in corner somewhere, away from you. Now see how good it feels when all that junk is not part of you? Doesn’t it feel good to have a clear mind, a quiet mind?

You know, maybe all that drama you left in the corner will decide you don’t want it anymore (which you don’t) and decide to open the door…and leave

Nope, It Ain’t Gonna Help

990108468_058Nope, it ain’t gonna help…throwing more negative energy at a bad situation. No matter how long you sit around and say stuff like “Why me?” or “What the heck just happened,” or “If only,” it’s not going to help you. In fact, you’ll only make the problem grow bigger and bigger when you do that. Believe me I’ve been there and that’s what happens.

Instead switch your focus to something pleasant, some thing you like. Just hold your attention there until you feel that subtle “shift” In this better feeling state of mind solutions come where there were none before.

990108468_050It’s a new week. It’s a new start…if you want it to be. It’s up to you.

Why not grab this new day and embrace it? Why not grab it and say to yourself that this days is going to be the kind of day that will make you smile and make you feel good?

Leave the mistakes of the past where they belong…in the past. Don’t breathe new life into them be replaying them over and over in your head like a scratched up old record.

Smash that record, kick the pieces out of your way, and move forward with a smile.
