Experience Gratitude

Experience gratitude in your life. Be thankful for all the gifts in your life, and all the reasons you are appreciative. Think of the people who you are so fortunate to have, and think of yourself and how far you have come. Feel from the love in your heart, and let go of the pain. “Relinquish all regrets, grievances, and resentments. Choose the miracle.” – Deepak Chopra

Have the intention, and go with the choice to forgive, and move from the pain. Choose to be happy, and choose to live a fulfilling life, one dedicated to love, understanding, and positivity.

We are our greatest challenge, and our greatest asset. How we perceive the world ultimately determines how we see it.

See the world for the beauty that it holds, and live a life of gratefulness, peace, and happiness.


Stop the worry. Stop the stress.

Stop worrying, and stop stressing – they’re not good for you, and they do nothing for your cause. If something is causing you worry or stress, remove it from you. Worrying or stressing about something will not work to your benefit, it will do quite the opposite. Either way, if it is something that has to get done, it will get done – and that will be up to you to do it.

Whatever it is you have to do, do it out of love, and be grateful to be in the situation of doing it – whatever it may be. Enjoy what life puts in front of you, and make the best of it. At the end of the day, everything is going to be alright. There are certain situations where this is difficult, and may not apply – but the more we apply these ideals, the easier our lives will be.

Stress and worry is a disease that we carry with us, and for many of us, we have been taught and/or taught ourselves to live this way. But just as we were taught these things, we can unlearn them, and evolve into new patterns and habits that will benefit us greatly.

As soon as we begin to break the chains, is the moment we begin to break free from the things that hold us back. It is a choice, and we can take charge of our lives. It is a journey, and it will not be easy (for things take time to unlearn) but we will continue to grow each moment we choose better alternatives. May your day be calm, mellow, stress-free and happy.


The World is what you see

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.


Divine Relaxation Music for your heart

Calm yourself, breathe, relax, enjoy – you deserve it. You are everything, and everything is you. Take the time to appreciate all that you are, and all that you have. We are beautiful creatures, and we are here to love and reach higher levels of consciousness – and that choice is ultimately ours. We can do anything in this world, beyond the limitations we were given. Reach for the stars, and believe in yourself. You are wonderful.

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.



Filter the Negativity

get the positive ripples

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.


Learn from Life

Life is one big crazy, fun, scary, wild adventure. Each day I learn something new, and lately I’ve been learning several important lessons. It is sometimes hard to accept, but for the most part I believe in the truth, and if I see it, then it is much easier to accept and incorporate. At a very early age most of us develop patterns and habits. And until they are brought to our attention (like a thinking pattern, or a coping mechanism, our way of dealing, our attitude, the way we react, the way we behave) it is hard to fix. But if we are open to discovering ourselves, and open to accept and correct them, by removing our ego, and letting go of our fear – then it’s not so bad. Change doesn’t have to be difficult, but if it becomes so, it is also alright to slow it down. We can’t expect to change a pattern or habit we’ve had for most of our lives in a single day, a week, or even a year. But being conscious of our problems, and understanding where they come from is a big part of figuring these things out, and discovering a way to resolve them and create new patterns and habits that will help improve our lives.

From simple things, like changing our morning routines, or the ways we deal with stress, or how we think or feel in certain situations; to more difficult things like changing how we feel or react in certain situations – the more we look inward, and analyze what is going on (how they became this way, what causes them, etc.) and then figuring out a way to change them, and make them better

Taking responsibility for ourselves is the best thing we can do, and it’s really the only person we can be responsible for. Others should not control our lives, our feelings, or our actions. Only we can do that. The moment we stop worrying about what everyone else is doing, is the moment we start living our own lives and that is truly living.
