Wise Words: Season Change

0cbbd8a00e75d15b8b323f4af499f23e

 

With the summer sun soon at our backs, we found ourselves reflecting on the power of SEASONS. How often a new season brings upon new beginnings, closure, and self-realizations that sometimes feel timed with the end of summer, fall, winter, or spring. If you’ve perused our blog or spent time following us on Facebook, you’ll see how much we love to post little reminders about self-care, in the hope that it brightens your day and puts a more confident pep in your step.

 

As we near saying goodbye to summer, remember to take with you the memories, the moments, the growth, the lessons, and the wonder this season brought. Fall reminds us to let go of what we cannot control and ground ourselves, much like a leaf falling from a tree. Cheers to an amazing season and more importantly, our season CHANGE.

Wise Words: Love Your Life

in love with your life

 

Stop for a second. Take a deep breathe. Think of something or someone you haven’t thought about in awhile. How often do we lose sight of all of the many people and things that fill our lives with joy and enrich our existence? It’s easier said than done, and just like all good things, it takes work… BUT if you can truly learn to love your life and remember all of the many things that make it so special, then true happiness doesn’t seem like a far off destination. It’s simply a state of mind! In comparing ourselves and our situations to those around us, we devalue what we have in our own lives.  Your life is wonderful simply because it’s yours! Own it. Embrace it. Love it and it will love you back!

Wise Words: Stronger Than Excuses

stronger than excuses

 

Let’s face facts… we ALL make excuses sometimes! We’re too tired. We’re too busy. We’re too hurt or upset to see the bright side. Whether you are justifying not going to the gym or putting off that talk that should have happened with a friend a long time ago, there is always an excuse that seems easier than confronting it a situation. As HARD as it is, we say face life head on! Don’t let excuses give you an easy out. Be strong, get in there and get things done! You will always feel better and more productive afterward, and we promise the anxiety of it all is far worse than the actuality! Go get em’ tigress!

Wise Words: See What Happens

see what happens

 

Truer words were never spoken! How often do we study the events of our life or analyze the outcome of something until they barely exist? Staying in our head can take us OUT of reality. Sometimes you’ve just got to say “oh well” and roll the dice!  In the same breathe, have you ever been faced with a choice where you stopped, analyzed it, and then ended up not taking the leap? Then later down the road you wished you had NOT analyzed it and just DID IT. Taking chances, saying YES when you would otherwise say no, and jumping in is always good for the soul… (which makes your skin glow from the inside out!) Yes please!

Wise Words: Face The Sunshine

face to the sun

Sometimes, we have the capacity to live our lives in the shadows, which can feel like a dark place with no light at the end of the tunnel. We might not even know we’re there when it’s happening. As hard as it is, moving towards the things that serve you positively will help you move back into the light and stand up to the things that no longer serve you. Shying away from things that cast a light on us, will only hurt us in the end.  It is always important to find the people, places, and things that light us up from the inside out.  Don’t be afraid to show your inner beauty and talents and let the darkness and shadows fall into your past! In the end, it’s where you’re meant to be anyway!

Wise Words: The Best is Yet to Come

the best

 

It’s easy to get caught up in the past.  And it’s easy to think that getting older means that “the best” is behind you… but that’s just not true!  The best is always yet to come.  Why?  Because the future is unknown!  There are so many new things to do and try.  No matter what age you are, you can make each new day an exciting discovery if you choose to view it that way.  Read a new book, learn a new language, meet new people, travel… or just stop and smell the roses and revel in how much beauty there is around us in our everyday lives!

Wise Words: Realize Your Own Worth

your worth

 

You are worth as much as you think you are worth!  No one else can determine your value except YOU.  It is easy to let the opinions and actions of others influence the way we feel about ourselves, but if you believe in yourself others will believe too… and if they don’t then they are not worth your time.  Don’t let the opinions of others color your own view of yourself and the world around you. Life is too short not to feel your own self worth!

Wise Words: Enjoy Your Life

live life

 

Sometimes we get so caught up working towards a goal that we forget to stop and enjoy each step along the way!  Life is about the journey as well as the destination, and more often than not when you stop to enjoy the journey, and each beautiful step, then you end up changing the destination!  So don’t forget to observe the little things and soak them up, otherwise you might just miss what you were aiming for in the first place!

Wise Words: Your Heart Knows

your heart knows

 

Our hearts are amazing at telling us how we feel, even when our heads need a moment to process and catch up. We say, go with your heart! We hear that expression all the time but sometimes it’s hard to actually live by it.  However, it couldn’t be more true.  Your heart always knows the right thing to do when your mind can’t make sense of it all.  Sometimes the best thing to do is quiet the mind and let the heart take over!

Wise Words: Love Your Decisions

love your decisions

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of caring what others think?  (Our hands are raised!)  We’ve all been there at some point in time.  BUT the truth is, in order to ever be able to please anyone else, you must first please yourself.  If you are not happy with your decisions, how can you expect others to be?  Instead of worrying about what others think, sleep on it, decide where you stand, and go from there!  Confidence & positive outlook are always contagious!
