Wise Words: Life Is Too Short

life is too short

We think that quote deserves an, “AMEN!”  There is truly no time like the present.  Sometimes you just need a reminder to seize each moment, each opportunity, and just go for it!  Don’t miss out on YOUR life because someone else is trying to hold you back.  Forget about what others are doing and go for the things that drive your passion! It’s okay to be a little selfish if it means you are living your dreams. In the end, you’ll only be a better friend, mother, sister, wife if your needs are met.

Wise Words: Be Who You Are

don't let your wounds turn you

 

Life is full of battles that result in wounds. It is so easy to let our wounds collect and form scar tissue, only to become permanent fixtures in our lives.  But instead of operating through all that haze and clouded judgement, we say let it go.  Let the past stay in the past.  No matter how many wounds you get, don’t let those change the positive, special, and radiant person that you are inside.  Don’t let that scar tissue get in the way of your inner beauty! Put on a smile and start fresh each and every day, and always be true to yourself!

Wise Words: Chasing

chase the right things

Have you ever watched a dog chase its tail?  You just know that he’ll never catch it, but somehow he hasn’t quite figured that out yet!  Similarly, have you ever watched a friend chase after something that isn’t meant to be caught? Somehow it’s hard to figure out that it’s not the right thing just yet.  We all can look back on a situation and wonder why we spent so much time chasing after that thing that was just so clearly not right for us!  Bottom line: It’s so easy to keep spinning our top, without noticing, for just a little too long.  Our goal? To relax, stay in the moment, and trust our instincts more!  You always know when something isn’t right, it’s just a matter of listening to yourself a little sooner!  The whispers turn into screams, so much so that we can’t ignore it! And then, poof, the right thing seems to magically appear!

Wise Words: Start Where You Are

Start

 

We all have to start somewhere!  It’s so easy to get overwhelmed when starting any new task.  Whether you are changing eating or exercise habits, taking on a new job, or entering into a new relationship, it can all be daunting!  Sometimes our minds tend to skip to the end result.  We want it so bad and we want it now and we want it to be perfect!  But those expectations can often lead to disappointment and even intimidate us into not trying at all!!! But instead of letting your mind go there, just start, just take baby steps.  Use what you have.  Do what you can.  Let things unfold one inch at a time.  We bet that you will love the results!

Wise Words: Through the Dirt

every flower

 

Even the most beautiful rose is planted in a bunch of dirt!  We are all beautiful roses on the inside but sometimes we find ourselves surrounded by things that are not so pleasant.  The challenge is to grow out of those surroundings and emerge into the light where you can truly shine and show that inner beauty to the world!  So next time you find yourself in a pile of “dirt,” remember that you too can find your way out of it, and even more fabulous as a result of finding your way out of the mess!

Wise Words: Go For The Great

go for the great

 

How often do we hang on to things that are comfortable because it feels good and safe?  Although it’s hard, sometimes you have to step out of that comfort zone, give up the “bird in the hand,” and just go for it!  You will never get to the GREAT without a little sacrifice or risk.  Sometimes things that feel “good” are really just “comfortable” which often means that you have to light a little fire in order to get moving out of that comfortable place and into greatness! We believe in you, so close your eyes and take that first step!

Wise Words: It’s All Up To You

Create Beauty

 

Your path, your thoughts, your ideas, your ATTITUDE is all up to YOU!  Too often we blame others or our environment when things don’t go our way.  But the truth is that the only thing you can control is your outlook on a particular situation.  Choose to see the good, the bright side, the BEAUTY.  There is truly beauty all around and you have the power to see if you want to!  So do it!  It’s ALL up to you!

Wise Words: The Future Is Exciting

exciting future

 

Sometimes life gets monotonous and it’s hard to remember that there are so many exciting things ahead!  In these moments, we recommend breaking up your regular day a bit. Go to an art exhibit on your lunch hour, see that foreign film you’ve been hearing so much about, take a cooking class, join the company softball team, volunteer at a local animal shelter!  When you give yourself new things to do or take up a new activity, you easily remind yourself just how exciting (and productive) life can be!  Remember, it only takes one small thing to make all the difference!

Wise Words: Who You Want To Be

who you are

 

Be proactive!  It is so easy to sit around and wish your life away.  But who wants a wishbone where our backbone should be! Wishes only become reality when you spring into action.  You can achieve any goal you set your mind to, you just have to DO IT! Taking that first step is always the hardest.  So set small goals, take baby steps, and before you know it you’ll be reaching your larger goals, which is when who you are and who you want to be become one and the same!

Wise Words: Bloom Where You Are Planted

bloom where you are planted

 

“The grass is greener on the other side” is for the birds! We prefer, “the grass is greener where you water it.”  It is easy to look at what others have or what is going on in someone else’s life and think that you are missing out. Similarly, it might seem that others might have more or have it easier than you do.  In these moments, it’s best to take. a. step. back.  Life is all about our perception of things. In the end, we all have ability to bloom where we are planted!  In other words, make the most of what you have and your own surroundings.  If you are able to see the bright side and choose happiness than you will always have everything you need right at your disposal!
