There are times when alone is the best place to be. part of the self-care we need is finding the time to be alone. we spend so much of our time at work, tending to our families. then when we are all tapped out from the craziness from the day, our spouses and partners want a bit of our time too. sometimes it becomes too much, and we need a break. being alone with your thoughts along with an opportunity to do something for yourself is a gift. your soul craves that time for you to experience something that will fill you up so that you can give of yourself more freely and fully.
Before you talk, listen. we should all know this: that listening, not talking, is the gifted and the imaginative role. the true listener is often more believed and is more effective, learns more and does more good. so try listening. listen to everyone who speaks to you. it will work a small miracle.. you don’t need to do this perfectly for the results to be quite remarkable. all of us want to be listened to, all of us want to really be heard. when someone senses you are really listening to what they have to say amazing things can happen.
My favorite quote and life motto is: “everything happens for reason and everything works itself out!”
i love it because it reminds me that it’s that simple!
...and trust me, i’ve had trouble believing and trusting it at times, but it never stops proving itself to me!
what’s your favorite quote?
Don’t be defined by your past. it is just a lesson, not a life sentence. with every misstep or error that you make, ask yourself “what is the lesson in this mistake? what can this teach me?” and do not let your past mistakes stop you from going after what you dream of. feel the fear or the embarrassment or the anxiety — and then let it go. nothing will heal the sting from a mistake faster than going out and doing things right the next time. this is how we learn to do things better. it’s how we learned when we were young, and it’s how we learn as adults.
we all make mistakes — sometimes huge mistakes — but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t worthwhile, lovable, worthy of trust, worthy of benefit of the doubt and worthy of another chance.
Those who make life beautiful will make love beautiful. these beautiful people slip into our lives when we least expect it and when we need it the most. they find joy in making your life more delightful. the beauty they create (for you) is often done without the expectation, or even a thought, of receiving anything in return. these are very special people, few and far between. when you discover them, cherish and acknowledge their efforts. let them know what they do is appreciated. keep the beauty circle going!
You owe yourself the love you give to others so freely. putting yourself first does not make you selfish, it does not mean you don’t care about others. honestly, you can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first. it means you care about them so much that you want to give them the best you can, and you can only do that if you are full on the inside. it reminds me of sparklers. when you light a sparkler with another sparkler the fire doesn’t go out on the one that just shared its flame. you don’t need to give up any part of yourself in order to be happy. the more time you take for yourself the better impact it will have on your relationships
If you believe in yourself anything is possible. we believe that it is possible for human beings to improve. we believe that it is possible to raise the bar in your own life even if the world around you accepts average. we believe in ourselves and in each other. we believe that if you want better health or more happiness or a more meaningful job that you can make those things happen.
and because of this belief we are willing to test, experiment, and try new things even when we feel uncertain. if you don't believe that it's possible to make new things work, then it's hard to make any progress. i don't care how good the ideas are, nothing will work for you if you don't believe in it. and more importantly, nothing will work if you don't believe in yourself.
There are worlds waiting to be discovered. nothing in the life of persons, groups, or organizations can succeed if we ignore our hunger for meaning and thirst for connection.

You cannot change who you are but you can change what you do. making a lifestyle change is challenging, especially when you want to transform many things at once. this time, think of it not as a resolution but as an evolution
lifestyle changes are a process that take time and require support. once you’re ready to make a change, the difficult part is committing and following through. so do your research and make a plan that will prepare you for success. careful planning means setting small goals and taking things one step at a time.
You didn’t wake up today to be average. pursuing excellence rather than settling for mediocrity is what you’re called to do in life. it is your calling in your work, your career, your calling, your marriage, and your life in general. you were created to produce excellence.
so press on, don’t ever stop giving it your best, and don’t let the jealous voices around you (or even the small voice inside your head) ever convince you that you aren’t made for the mass production of greatness.
