Happy Tuesday!

A little quote to get you thinking and thriving through the day!

How true; There are NO failures, just discoveries.

The mind is such a powerful tool. We, as humans, don’t even understand all that it is capable of. What we can confirm, is that having a positive, growth mindset can change your life. Don’t believe me? Stick around and try it for yourself.

Looking back at your past, you can choose to be ashamed at the way you may have acted, upset that people hurt you the way they did, and spend your time dwelling on things that you wish you knew back then.

OR

✔️You can choose to be present in the NOW.
✔️You can choose to look back at all those past “mistakes” and change your perception of them.
✔️You can be thankful that you were given that mountain to climb, after all it was through the journey that you learned the things you did.
✔️You can choose to forgive the people who hurt you. We are all human, we have all made mistakes and there is no need to dwell on things we can not change. You can realize that people change, people grow apart and not everyone that was in your past will be in your future. You can thank them, for teaching you. Teaching you how people shouldn’t treat others and how we SHOULD treat others. For showing you what kind of people you want to let into your life and which ones you should steer clear of.
✔️You can choose to forgive yourself. Forgive yourself because you are a better person today, you have grown and learned from everything that has happened to you, whether you realize it or not. (I hope you do)

Notice how all those points start with YOU CAN. You can choose to look at the glass half full rather than half empty. You can choose how you react to situations.

I hope you take the steps to let go, learn from and appreciate your past. I hope you can laugh at the silly things you did. I hope you can take everything you have learned, apply it to today and your future.

Be open to change and allow yourself to have a growth mindset. Recognize that there is always room for growth. Be the best version of yourself, everyday.

Happy Friday All! What are you grateful for today? I want to hear!

Having a grateful mindset can change your life. Are you living your true, best life? Are you spending the majority of your time in a positive head space? You spend a lot of time in your head, why not make it a wonderful place to be?

How can you start living a life full of gratitude and pure happiness?

Play – make time for fun! Especially in times of mental stress or big decisions that need to be made.

Redefine your relationship with your past – the mistakes and the failures. Look back and recognize the lessons learned. Look for the gift in each situations. The biggest learning lessons in our lives didn’t come from textbooks, they come from mistakes and recognizing the opportunity to grow and learn.

Brighten up someone else’s day! Be a light for others, If you are looking for joy and positivity; be the source and pass it on to other. Watch the universe deliver it back, ten fold. “be the change you wish to see in the world”

 Rest – you are not a machine, take care of yourself! You can not take care of others if you do not take care of yourself. There is power in “alone” or “me” time. Harness this power and watch the magic flow.

 Celebrate small wins! Set goals, but also make sure there are small, achievable goals to keep you feel positive and full of motivation.

Get Outside! It is truly amazing the effect connecting with nature has on ones soul. Plant your bare feet on the grass and feel the connection. Feel the reset. Close your eyes and breathe in the fresh air. Listen to the birds chirping around you, the wind in the trees. Feel your body and soul relax.

Tune into your gratitude! Two people can look at a situation and have a completely different view of it. Look at each situation and find the good! Start each day by listing 3 things you are grateful for, big and small. This starts your day on a positive note. I have done this for the past year, when you are feeling down, or having a bad day, STOP. Stop what you are doing, close your eyes, take 3 deep breaths, now think of 3 things you are grateful for. So life has thrown you a lemon, you can either sit there and complain about getting a sour lemon, or you can take the lemon and make lemonade, lemon tarts, or lemon pie. The possibilities are endless when gratitude it recognized. It may sound silly, but give it a try and I PROMISE you will feel a shift in your life.

 Step away and let go of negativity. Be that a situation or a person. Release all that does not serve you. This is not being selfish, this is self-love and recognizing your worth. Choose you. Choose happiness. Life is to short to be anything but happy and to treat each day as anything less than a gift. Spend it doing what you love with whom you love.

 SMILE. The simple act will put you in a happier state. It will radiate to others, with a simple smile you are manifesting positivity into your life. Smile because you are amazing, you are here and there is SO much to be grateful for each day. You have never seen this day before, the possibilities are endless, how amazing is that?

Being positive is a choice. Choosing happiness can have a profound impact on your life, your relationship[s and in every aspect of you life.

Are you choosing to live a positive life? If not, if you are struggling, today is the day to make the change!

Be the person you wish the world was full of. Change starts with you!

All my love, always.

What if?

Is your “what if” holding you back?

A statement that is a result of fear.

Fear of what? Fear of striking out?

What’s the worst that could happen? Okay maybe you don’t succeed. By not succeeding, you have the ability to learn and to grow. What didn’t work out? Why didn’t things go as planned? Was it meant to be? What can be learned from this so that you can grow forward?

There is no “bad” side to taking chances. Life is all about taking chances, never let the fear of striking out keep you from living your best life every day.

Do what sets your soul on fire. Life is way to short and unpredictable to be spent living in the comfort zone.

Get out there, explore, take chances. Always be kind. Life isn’t always easy and your smile could change someones day, maybe even their life. Love with all your heart, everyday. When you find someone who deserves your heart, embrace it.

Live your best life, all your life.

What if its the best decision you could make? Don’t let your “what if”s hold you back.

Awakening

You know that feeling when everything is going so good, everything feels so right…. and you’re enjoying the ride… then you think, how can this continue? When is the wall going to come? the cliff? Now you’re on edge.

The universe delivered even more than I asked for. He is gold. Perhaps an angel sent to me.

You know that feeling when it doesn’t feel like real life? Like it’s all a wildly, beautiful dream? You find yourself in a constant euphoric trance. Like he just waltzed into your life, all knight in shining armour and your just thinking, this has to be too good to be true… wheres the rust? *Breaks out the magnifying glass*

He is all sunshine and love. A pure soul filled with light, given life by a heart of gold.

You know that feeling when you look into those big, golden eyes and it feels as though your heart might just stop? When they stare into yours and you can feel your soul ignite? Catching his stare, the one you’ve only ever dreamed of? I finally do.

I hope one day you can feel this way, if only for a moment. We all deserve to find someone who looks at us like we are the most beautiful creature to walk the earth and someone who makes us feel as though we can fly.

He is strong, the kind of strength that moves mountains, and if it can’t move it, he’ll help you get to the top. The kind of strength that runs through out every part of his being.

He is the trust I could never find in anyone else. The trust everyone broke. He came in, and has shown his undeniable commitment, from day one. He puts faith back in trust.

He is not just a “showroom model”, the kind where after a while, you notice it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. He is the real deal, through and through.

I could talk for days about how majestic this being is. How he has filled my days with light, and shown me how to believe again. How he came into my life and continues to show me that life is full of beauty, in ways I have never seen. I’ll tell you, the day he saved ants from drowning, my world was altered. I’ve always appreciated and basked in the beauty of the world, but he’s shown me a deeper beauty.

Yet I’m terrified.

Terrified one day I’ll wake up from this dream. The mind is a powerful, sometimes unruly tool. My fears are foolish, I know this as he re-assures me daily.  The journey of self-growth is never over, perhaps this is how I learn to let go of the past and realize the present is vastly different than anything I have ever experienced.

I try my best to quiet the what if’s. Why is it that we have such a hard time letting go of past hurt? When he is clearly picking up the pieces I thought were lost forever….. Writing this, I realize just how silly those what ifs are. I struggle to even write them, for the ridicule I’ll give myself is too much.

Today, I am done being terrified. For when someone comes along, allowing us to be 100% ourselves and enjoys every quirky moment…… There is no need to be terrified. Today I embrace, every single moment, as I have since he arrived. Releasing all the foolish thoughts and doubts from the past that cloud this perfect present.

He, in all his excellence, was worth every moment of the wait. He was worth the climb.

Thankful to my past, for leading me to where I am today, teaching me all you have. I release you and your hold on me.

Blessed for the present, it truly is a divine gift. I am cherishing all its glory. Here is true, undeniable happiness.

To the future, may you continue to be wildly authentic, full of light and unconditional love.

Here’s to you, here’s to me, Here’s to us.

xoxo

All my love.
