    Telling the Truth About Yourself to Yourself

    I know all too well from past experience what unhappiness feels like and how it can destroy not only your sense of peace and well-being but your health and life experiences.  I also know what true happiness feels like and how it enhances your sense of peace, well-being, improves your health and creates joyous life experiences.  The hardest part for me, into my journey toward true happiness, was telling the truth about me.  Writing down who I was at that moment in time, how I felt about myself, and the things I was doing to create my miserably unhappy life.  This journaling process did in fact create some pain, but…

    It Is Time to Positively Beat Yourself Up

    How often do you “beat yourself up” over something great you did, said or achieved?  How much time do you spend praising, loving or admiring yourself for all the positive aspects of who you are and your life?  Probably not as much as you do for the negative.  I know I never spent nearly as much time on the positive as I did the negative until I finally got the point where not feeling good and not being happy was no longer an option for me.  A challenge for a lot of us is letting go of our mistakes or the feeling that we are a “bad” person.  Not only do…

    Taking A Leap of Faith – From Fear to Happiness

    I used to fear being happy.  I was afraid if I became truly happy something or someone would take that happiness away from me so I lived in unhappiness.  What I didn’t know at the time was that there was nothing to fear and that I was the one responsible for my own happiness.  No matter what was said or done to me, I always had the choice as to how I was going to let it affect me.  Unfortunately, I allowed too many things affect me in a very negative way.  I allowed everyone to have control over my happiness.  Basically, I was putting my entire life in the…

    Run With the Positive Possibilities

    When was the last time you ran with the positive possibilities of an unwanted situation?  As human beings, we have a tendency to allow our outer life situations affect us in a negative way. We allow them to take us down, turn us around, and control who we become, sometimes for a lifetime.  But, my question is why?  Why do we deprive ourselves of happiness just because something went awry?  What is so wrong with being happy no matter what is going on?  Do you truly believe being happy is going to make things worse? I do understand, from personal experience, how difficult it can be to feel good when it…

    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…
