Concentrate…


Vibrant Sun 3

When you feel shaky and unsure concentrate on something you do well. This will help build your confidence and enable you to go on. Norman Vincent Peale, in his book “Positive Imaging” tells us that if you bake cookies well, then bake them…often, even if you give them away. The satisfaction of doing a task well puts you in a better frame of mind and helps you to be successful at doing other things that you may not be so sure of.
Try it, it works and check out Dr. Peale’s books as well- he is my favorite author.

Cherish…


990105679_002

Cherish the moments you have with your loved ones- whether they be human or have fur or feathers. One day they might not be here anymore, and we could regret not spending more time with them.

Remember that nothing is as important as those close to you. Nothing. What you hold dear to your heart is the most important thing. Make the time.

What Matters Most…

What matters most to you? Have you sat down to think about it? Have you written down what is important to you and made a plan on taking it step-by-step or are your thoughts all over the place?

Until you make up our mind about what you want, then you can’t take the steps necessary to make it a reality. Think about it.

Cultivate It…

Cultivate it as much as you can…an attitude of calm. Count to ten before you get angry. Instead of getting into an argument, walk away until you calm down. Take things at a slower pace when you can- you don’t have to be in a rush to go everywhere and do everything. Slow down a little. Spend some quiet time- maybe a walk or listening to relaxing music.

Cut off anger and drama before it takes hold. Cultivate that peaceful feeling.

Do You Use Them…


Sun Ocean Tree

Are you using them…affirmations? If not why not?

Affirmations can really help. Pick out one that has meaning for you (or make your own) and say them often. Write them down and put them in places where you can easily see them to remind yourself to say and think about them. Say them to yourself in the mirror. Okay, it may seem silly at first, but the more you do it the more it makes sense to keep doing it and the more it helps. You’ll start reaching for what has become your “mantra” and stop using the usual things you tell yourself to beat yourself up.

And the more uplifting your words then the more uplifting your life becomes.

It’s Yours…

This is your decision and your decision alone- the path you take in life.

So what feels right to you? What is calling to you? Those are strong indicators of the right road for you.

And it doesn’t have to be what everyone else is doing- that’s why they call it “your path” It’s not about your sister or the guy across the street- they have their own way to go.

Your path will be the one you feel best on. It will be the one that brings you joy just thinking about it. It’s where you belong.

Notice Them…

Notice them more…your feelings. Notice them when you feel anxious or afraid. What are you thinking?

Chances are that you are thinking gloom and doom- that you can’t do something, or that you’re worried about some future event that may or may not happen. Your stomach churns and your head aches.

Now notice how you feel when you think to yourself that you can handle what comes your way- that you can figure it out and make the right choices- feels different doesn’t it? You feel calmer, more focused but at the same time relaxed because you know you have what it takes to get a positive result.

Pay attention the next time you start to feel “off” What are you thinking about? Then you’ll have your answer.

Are You Communicating…


990105679_004

Are you communicating? Are you asking for what you want (in a polite way of course) or are you just expecting people to guess?

There are very few mind readers out there. No one is going to get directly in your head and see where your thoughts are going, even those close to you.

Speak up. Say what you mean. Ask for what you want. You can do it. And don’t forget to say “thank you”

Let It Go…


Vibrant Sun 3

Are you holding on to an old grudge? Are you re-living an old argument in your head over and over? Are you refusing to speak with somebody or get together with them?

Why? Holding onto old hurts is like hitting yourself in the head with a frying pan over and over. Unless you like having a headache or bumps on your head it’s not a positive thing to do.

What IS positive is holding out the olive branch. Make that connection. Make that call. Mend that bridge. It will make you and the other person feel a lot better. The frying pan…use it for cooking and not to beat yourself up

Brush It Off…


Green Sky

Brush it off…the little “hiccups” of the day. So Bob in accounting doesn’t like your new dress…so what? You do and that’s the important thing.

Your neighbor Janet thinks your new car is silly…why do you need an SUV when it’s only you and your significant other? Because YOU like it, that’s why!

People are people and they will on occasion say something that might upset you and you know what, if it’s something really important or if it comes from somebody important to you then you may want to listen…though the final decision belongs to you.

Janet and Bob? Let them do their own shopping.
