    Where Are Your Mistakes

    So you made some mistakes ……. where are they now?  We have all made mistakes and we will ALL continue to make mistakes.  No matter how big or how small, how major or how minor, a mistake is only a mistake.  We are the ones who put meaning to it, just like we are the ones who control how long they will affect us and our lives. There are way too many people in the world who live IN their mistakes.  They punish themselves over and over again with self-sabotaging behaviors because of something they did in the past.  Every mistake you have ever made is in the past whether…

    Free Yourself From Regret

    Throughout our lives we will say and do things which will cause regret. These things may be said or done in the “heat of the moment” or while “temporarily suspended” from our Inner Life, who we really are.  The regret we feel may come instantly or it may come later after the realization of what we did hits us.  What makes it worse is when we not only hurt ourselves but when we hurt those we love. Regret is a negative emotion that if held onto can cause even more pain and suffering then what you may already be experiencing.  It is also an emotion that could very easily control…

    Second Chances

    There may come a time in your life when you are “offered” a second chance.  A chance to become who you are truly meant to be.  Through whatever means this second chance has come into your life, start from where you are.  There is no need to go back and rehash what was done right or wrong or how you ended up where you are.  There is also no need to start worrying about the future; as to whether or not things will work out or get better.  Too often we impair ourselves by believing we need to “clean up” the past, but this will only hinder where you want…

    What Is Your Happiness

    Like you, I search the internet for useful information.  One thing I have taken notice to is how many “steps” there are to achieving happiness or anything else for that matter. I don’t know about you, but if I were to try to follow 10 – 30 steps of anything I’d be exhausted before I even got started!  Now don’t get me wrong, the information may be useful but it is all too overwhelming especially for someone who is trying to overcome a struggle or achieve a specific goal. I do understand wanting to share what “works” especially when the advice comes from personal experience, but what about making it simple.…

    You Define You, Not the Past

    Some say the negative experiences of our past define who we are, but I am not sure if I believe this.  I am who I am because I choose to be.  Giving your past all the credit gives it power.  It holds you in a place that doesn’t always allow you to move forward.  It keeps you living in fear because you don’t ever want to go back to “those days” so you live in the confines of what you think will keep you safe from the past.  While at the same time you are also keeping yourself away from what life truly has to offer you. Yes, there are…

    Dead End Relationships

    Relationships are about positive growth. Not just within ourselves but within the other person as well.  It is natural for change to occur whether we want it to or not.  As we grow, make new or different choices, implement change within ourselves, take a different path, or stay idle where we are, there will be an effect on our relationships, all of them.  If these changes and choices cannot be embraced by the support and love of those in your life, your relationships may come to a dead-end.  A dead-end relationship is one that does not have the potential to move forward in a direction that you so desire. The…

    The Habit of Complaining

    Most people don’t recognize complaining as a habit or even a behavior because for most it comes so naturally. A habit is something you do consciously or unconsciously on a regular basis.  Any habit, including complaining, can be changed if you truly have the desire to do so. Why would you want to change a habit such as complaining?  Because it produces negative energy, experiences, outcomes and/or manifestations. That which you put out, you get back. Not only that, but it also puts you out of tune with your Inner Life because you are creating negativity in your life. If you are unsure whether or not you are an habitual complainer, pick any day…

    Don’t Let Excuses Control Your Life

    How often do you use your past as an excuse to justify your present life situation or your behavior? Do you use your past as an excuse to indulge in negative habits?  Do you use a failed relationship as an excuse not to trust anyone? If you are fully aware of where your excuses are coming from, you no longer have an excuse for making excuses!  It is time to take personal responsibility for your life. The only person making you and your life the way it is, is you.  Yes, you heard me correctly!  It’s all YOU!  You are the one who has the control in your life; not the past, not…

    Cutting Ties to Your Expectations

    Have you ever asked yourself why you expect so much from others? Far too many people expect others to be, act or behave as they would but why. Does it make you feel better in the knowing that others are just like you? Does it make you feel like you are in control? Or does it come from how others in your life hold expectations of you? More than likely it comes from believing that your way is the right way or the only way, but we know that’s not true. NOW is the time to cut ties to your expectations, to stop worrying about everyone else, and start worrying…

    Spring Clean Your Life

    When was the last time you did some spring cleaning?  And I am not just talking about your closets, basement or garage.  I am talking about spring cleaning your life.  There is certainly nothing wrong with taking inventory once or twice a year.  Decide on what is pleasing in and enhancing your life and let go of what isn’t.  In fact, this is a healthy process of staying in tune with your Inner Life because it allows you to keep growing and moving forward in a positive manner.  When your life becomes nothing more than a routine or in some cases a chore, it is time to do some spring…
