Give Yourself Break…


You deserve it…a break. Life is about balance- because balance is what gets the job done right. Knowing when to work and when to stop. Knowing when to take a step back and recharge. And most of us know when that time is, because, as we continue to work because we think we should- we just start making lots of mistakes. We get frustrated and angry, but we keep at it anyway, and we keep spiraling downward.

That is your signal to step away. That is your signal to make a shift in your thoughts and activities and do something you like. You’ll know again when it’s time to get back to the task at hand.

Do They Define You…


Are you letting them define you…mistakes? Do you think because you made a mistake doing something that you should never try again?

You fell down the first time you tried to walk, right? But you walk now, don’t you? What would happen if after you fell down the first time you never tried it again? You’d have some pretty dirty knees that’s for sure.

Now, we know that obviously we tried and tried until we got it right. And we did it because it was an important thing to learn. It mattered.

So shouldn’t you feel that determination for everything you attempt? Very few things are ever going to go perfectly on the first attempt. That’s why you do it again…

It’s Always The Right Time…


It’s always the right time…to begin. If you have the idea, the dream, the goal- then it’s time. You will find a way to make it happen. It is why the dream lives on inside you- because you have what it takes to bring it into the physical world.

Use that power and use it now- don’t let your dream die an early death.

It Sure Helps…


Vibrant Sun 3

It sure helps…being thankful. It just makes you feel better, more calm, more peaceful, and just happier.it makes you glad to be alive.

Think about the times that you have been thankful for something. Think about the way you felt. Think about the actions you then took as a result of feeling good. You took some great steps, right? You probably got a lot more done than if you sat around feeling sorry for yourself, right?

Let’s all shift our focus towards being thankful today and then we’ll make it a great day!

Just A Little…


Just a little dab will do you..a little dab of kindness.

A friend of mine has an older family in the hospital, and this lady was scared. They give out little teddy bears to the little kids when they come in, but nobody thought to give one to this older lady except this one one orderly who grabbed on and gave it to the woman.

She immediately calmed down and hugged the little bear until she fell asleep peacefully. After that, she hung onto that stuffed toy and it comforted her. And so did the orderly, who made it a point to visit her each day after his shift.

A little kindness goes a long way.

It’s Always Now…


 

It’s always now…it’s always the right time to move forward; to take the next step.

It’s not next week, or next month, or next year. When you think along those lines what you’re really saying is that is it NEVER going to be the right time.

A leap of faith is exactly that- taking that chance.

But isn’t it better to take that chance and to find out than to exit this life with that chance still tied up inside you never to see the light of day and never coming to fruition?

Are You Underestimating Yourself…


Are you underestimating yourself? Are you underestimating your talents while overvaluing what others can do?

For example, maybe you’re a great interior decorator, and people, over the years have come to you for advice and everything you’ve told them has been exactly what they loved. You just have an eye for colors and fabrics and styles and, well you get the idea. In fact, you’re very creative. Many people have told you that you should be doing this for a living.

But somehow you don’t see it that way. You seem to think that anybody can do what you do. Anybody will know exactly how to decorate their own home or office. But then why do so many people come to you for advice no matter where you go?

You’re at the checkout line in the grocery store and you see your neighbor, and she has her friend with her. What’s the first thing she says? Oh, I’m so glad to see you. This is my friend Dave and he just bought a place a few blocks from us. I told him that YOU were the perfect person to help him decorate it! Hint… hint…

But instead you focus on your other neighbor who has a landscaping business. And you say to yourself “Now, that’s a talent! I wish I could create some of the designs that Larry can.”

Okay, Larry is talented but so are you. One is not better than the other. Larry has a talent for knowing how to create a beautiful garden with flowers; you create beautiful spaces using another medium. You BOTH are using your natural talents, but Larry has built a business around his. Hint…hint.

Don’t underestimate your abilities but instead use them to move forward in life.

Get Unstuck…


Vibrant Sun 4

Sitting there mulling over your future? Wondering which way to go? Losing sleep at night because of uncertainty?

Get unstuck! Take the first step and do something, anything to get you moving again. Even if it turns out not to be the right thing.

The fact that you took action motivates you to keep moving and moving feels good. It motivates you to take the next step, and he one after that and,well, you get the picture. So stop for a moment and pick out even the tiniest thing you can o today to start you on your path. it doesn’t matter how small it is. It could be mailing a letter, making a list, going to the library to get that book that you think might help you- but do it! You don’t have to change the world in one day but you do have to “Un -stick yourself” to start the journey.

Are You Working On It…

Are you working on improving yourself? Or do you put all your focus on what’s wrong with other people? Do you carp and complain all day about what someone else might have done wrong or do you tale steps to insure you’ll do the best possible job that you can?

Part of the Optimist Creed tells us “Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.”

Focus on you. Be the best “you” that you ca be.
