The World is what you see

the world is what you see

“Your thoughts are your reality” – I am told this in everything I am reading, studying, hearing, watching…it must be true!

I’m not sure what to believe anymore, and as they all say “fear” will bring us back to what is comfortable, our old thoughts and habits.

I’m trying to do my best to live in the present, to live in the moment, to enjoy every second, and forget about the past and stop worrying about the future. I realize now that I have many problems that I have always had. Many things that have happened in my life have created the way that I have become. But I don’t have to continue to let those things hurt me. I can change, just like everyone else can.

The information is just overwhelming, and the constant realizations that I have thought the wrong way for so long is really hard to deal with sometimes, but it’s okay. Nothing can change overnight, so neither can I. Patience is a virtue right now. Slowly, day by day it will get better – it is just fighting everything inside of me to not resort back to my old ways of thinking and seeing the world. It is much easier to drown in sorrow, and feel like the world is against you – than it is to say, “I create my own reality”.

Some of this is hard for me to believe right now, because I did not choose for many of the things that have happened in my life – however if our thoughts really do create our reality, then who knows…All I know is now I am starting to believe, and I am being positive (trying to at least) and much more hopeful of the good that is to come. I am experiencing a change in my attitude, and beginning to see results. I feel as if I keep going on this journey, and continue to learn, and read, and write, and listen – I will create the life that I want, and in doing so the world I envision.

We are only responsible for ourselves, and so only ourselves we can change. We can change our thoughts, our dreams, our lives, and our routines. Knowing this now, puts me at ease. I still struggle with what others are doing around me, but that too shall pass (I hope.)

Sticking with it is the hard part, but just like the rest – patience…move slow…believe…I have nothing to lose.



Be Happy With What you Have

Be Happy with what you have

Be Happy with what you have

“Be happy with what you have while working for what you want.” – Helen Keller

I always loved reading about Helen Keller, and hearing her wise words. So much gratefulness to come from her story, and her wisdom. I sometimes struggle to hold on to my sanity, and I hate it when I let in the negative thoughts, but when they do start to come in, I turn to the positivity, and begin to look for the affirmations, the meditations, the quotes, the videos, the stories, and the enlightenment with each.

Thank you to all those who share their knowledge, and experience with happiness. We all need a little reminder every now and again.


The time has come = Do It Now

do it now

you can do it now

The time is now, do it. Stop fear. Empower yourself. You are amazing, and you are powerful. Appreciate the hard work you have done. You deserve everything. Take a deep breath, and believe. You are happiness, you are peace, you are bliss, you are extraordinary, you are a leader, you are kind, you are strength, you can achieve all that you dream. You are the answer to everything. Do whatever it is you need to do, and do it now.


It is the little things

attitude is everything

attitude is everything

We are all the same. We all face inner turmoil and pain. We all fight battles. But it is our attitude that sets us apart, and it is our attitudes that set us free. Choose positivity, happiness, light, and peace. Choose to accept, and let go of the bad, and live with the good and the new. We deserve to be happy, and happiness is a choice that only we can decide to take. Appreciate yourself for who you are. Thank yourself for just being you.



Positive Thinking Meditation

Uploaded on Jul 25, 2011…
Guided Positive Thinking Meditation by Linda Hall, personal growth facilitator and meditation teacher.

Getting in touch with the positives in life. Focusing on the positives, positive thinking, rather than the negatives in our lives makes a real difference to how we feel on a day-to-day basis. It motivates us, enables us to feel inspired, brings hope, nurtures healthy self-esteem, builds self-confidence and makes us happy.

Neuroscience suggests that we can train ourselves to feel good and think positively, just like anything else — it’s a learned ability and the more we do it the easier it becomes as we grow the neural pathways and collect cellular memory to take us there again. It’s a powerful yet gentle form of self help for depression.

Endorphin meditation is a recognised way to boost the body’s production of mood enhancing, pain relieving opiates.

20 small things that make you a greater person

Great article – 20 Small Things We can all do…

Despicable Yet Wonderful You


Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written in the history of this generation. ~Robert Kennedy


What is greatness and what does it take to become a great person?


It is a state of mind where one feels or is believed to be superior when compared to others who are similar in type and kind. It is a quality an individual posses that is perceived to be better than all others who are comparable. And we bestow this generous title on those who have do something that is considered beyond ordinary or attainable. Or at times greatness is also witnessed in simple and basic human behavior which elevates someone to a higher status than others. An act of charity, sacrifice for another person’s…

Filter the Negativity

get the positive ripples

“Filter the Negativity to produce positive ripples…” – Cherie Roe Dirksen

How True and wise this statement is. So many situations, so many opportunities to feel negative, but each time we resisit them, and each time we choose to take the positive outlook – we are winning, and we are growing stronger. Our lives will be happier, longer, healthier and we will inspire, spread, and share the positive effects. You can do it. We all can do it together.


Feel your soul

Feel your soul

Feel your soul

Souls recognize each other by the way they feel – not by the way we look.

We are not what we see in the mirror, and people are not what we see with our eyes. Who we are is within us, it is the soul that we are – the thoughts, the feelings, the love we have inside.

Break away from your limitations and boundaries, and begin to look within and love who you truly are.
