Wise Words: Dreams

Dreaming is a wonderful thing. It gives us hope, makes us happy, and most importantly, gives us something to strive for! But as we get older and life goes on, it’s easy to start letting your dreams go. We say, don’t let them stay dreams. We live in a magical world where the impossible is possible! Keep your dreams close to your heart, and fresh in your mind, and don’t let anyone every convince you that you can’t make your dreams come true! Life is too short to think it’s over before your dreams have begun.

Wise Words: Thoughts Become Things

thoughts become things

Thoughts are powerful things.  Once you think something you set off a chain reaction.  First, it’s just a thought that exists in your own head.  Then you might share it with someone or take an action as a result of this thought.  Then it begins to evolve and take on a life of its own.  A lot of this happens on the subconscious level, and you don’t even realize that you are even acting on a random, passing thought.  Then before you know it that thought has become an actual thing, it has become a reality. So the question is… was that a positive thought or a negative thought?  It’s up to you.  Squash the negative thoughts and encourage the positive ones.  Only you can have control over what goes on inside your own mind. And our minds are way more powerful than most of give ourselves credit for! :)

Wise Words: You Will Thank Yourself

you will thank yourself

Too often we do things that we think we “have to.” But who makes up these rules?! You are in charge of you! Only you can know what is right for you. When you live a life to please others or out of fear of what others will think, you are doing EVERYONE a disservice. Think about it… no one benefits when there is someone who is being inauthentic or dishonest.  Especially if that someone is you! Think back to the last time you did something out of a sense of obligation. Were you happy, or did you maybe feel a little cranky about it?  And did those cranky feelings maybe lead to a bad mood, which then might have spread to others?  No one wants that, least of all you! Be honest with yourself, ask yourself what you really want, and then go do that! The happiness that you feel will be contagious and that is when everyone wins.

Wise Words: Sparkle Brighter

sparkle a little brighter

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you are feeling happy and things are going well, and then you come across that person that just seems so unhappy that you end up “dimming your sparkle” around them in order to make them feel better?  But does it ever work?  Do they ever feel better?  No, because that type of person will never feel better, and what they have succeeded at doing is bring you down to their level!  Well we suggest staying clear!  People who are comfortable in their own skin will always be happy to see another person feeling great.  We say, sparkle as bright as you possibly can!  Spread the joy and excitement to those who want to join you!

Wise Words: Comfortable in Your Own Skin

comfotable in your own skin

Ha! We couldn’t agree more! There is nothing more beautiful than a woman who is comfortable in her own skin.  Confidence is the best secret that we share on how to truly GLOW!  Beauty radiates from within, and when you reach a place in life where you are comfortable with yourself, that is when you will be your most beautiful!  … And of course, red lipstick never hurts. Or Pink!  ;)

Wise Words: Don’t Compare

don't compare

 

You know what they say… comparison is the thief of joy.  And “they” are totally right!  You just don’t know where someone else is in their own personal journey.  Each one of us is unique and each one of us has a unique path and journey.  You ARE at the right place in your life.  Enjoy it. Don’t take away from your own experiences by comparing them to those of others.  There is no comparison, because it’s apples and oranges. Two unique people are just too different to even compare!

Wise Words: Let Go Of The Past

let go of the past

Imagine this… you are swimming in the ocean and there are weights strapped to your ankles.  But you are unaware that the weights are there.  So you keep swimming, trying to get to shore, but it’s so difficult.  And you are so tired. And your destination just seems more and more impossible to reach.  And you don’t know why. Holding on to the past can have the same effect. It weights your thoughts down and makes it hard to move forward and reach your future destination. Don’t drag yourself down. Take the weights off your ankles and swim to shore! You can do it!

Wise Words: Value

undervalue

One of the biggest crimes that we can commit against ourselves is undervaluing our own thoughts and ideas.  How many times have you had an idea and then thought, “No, that’s silly.”  In that one statement you have undervalued yourself and overvalued every negative thought you’ve ever had!  Believing in yourself and placing yourself in a position of high value in your own mind is the biggest favor you can do for yourself.  Once you start to treat yourself and your ideas as having high value, others will follow and treat you that way as well. Cheers to that!

Wise Words: Important to You

if its important to you

Ever notice how when you REALLY want something you manage to find your way right to it? Sometimes we spend a lot of time and energy chasing our own tails over something we don’t really want, but think we are supposed to want.  It’s always easy to create a distraction which takes us away from the things we actually do want. In the end, it’s important to pay attention to our own actions.  If you are making excuses and not getting to the end of the road, then maybe it’s not the right thing for you. Put it aside and spend time on the things that feed your soul and leave you feeling fulfilled and happy. You will find yourself being more productive overall, which will in turn lead to doing more of the things you actually want and moving your life forward! Nothing feels more wonderful than that!

Wise Words: Be Kinder

be kinder

 

So we can’t all be  great actors like Meryl Streep … BUT we can all do a little pretending every once in a while.  Sometimes pretending to feel a certain way can lead to actually feeling that way!  Have you ever noticed that being around happy people makes you feel happier?  You want to fit in so you smile a bit, laugh a bit, and, POOF, next thing you know you are actually happier than when you started.  And it can work the opposite way too, if you are around negative people you can start to feel more negative as a result.  So be the leader!  Act kind and happy, even if you aren’t feeling it 100%.  You might be surprised by the results.  You might actually bring yourself, and others, UP to a better place!
