    New Year Resolutions vs New Year Intentions

    Yes, I know, everyone blogs about New Year’s resolutions, making their lists of goals for the upcoming year and encouraging you to do the same.  I am here to encourage you NOT to make New Year resolutions.  In fact, don’t even make a list of goals.  Instead, make a list of intentions, but don’t put a time frame on them.  Just leave them out there as something you INTEND to do or accomplish, period; a “Bucket List” per se.  Try not to think of them as what you would like to accomplish because right there, the difference between INTEND and WOULD LIKE creates negative energy.  When you say “intend”, it…

    Diminishing the Problem Monster

    Is there a problem you are facing today?  One that makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed out, full of anxiety, sad or unhappy?  Does it feel as though it is bigger than you?  In a sense it is because you are allowing yourself to see it that way.  You have expanded the size of it in your mind into this great big huge monster just waiting to take you down.  It is as though you are looking at it through a magnifying glass believing it is just too much to handle.  Simply speaking, you are allowing this problem, which in fact lives in your outer life control you by blocking you…

    I Am Who I Am Because It Makes ME Happy!

    I have always considered myself to be a strong woman; an independent woman.  A woman who can most certainly take care of herself, fend for herself and hold her own.  I would think this would be a great thing and yet I continually meet people who feel the need to question who I am and the choices I make.  I have blatantly been told that I am weird and then questioned as to what is wrong with me because I choose to be single and independent.  It is thought that I am hiding something, holding back, not allowing people into my life, or live with a hardened heart from past…

    Don’t Let It Affect Your Today

    Every day is a new day; a new beginning if you choose.  What happened yesterday no longer matters unless you want it to matter.  Some of us wake with dread due to things we have said or done the day before we are not proud of.  Some of us wake with dread over things we have not said or done that we know we should have.  Regardless of what you have done or not done, don’t let it affect your today.  Move on with a positive attitude and a renewed spirit. When the negative energy of regret is carried around it will eventually build on itself.  It will stop you…

    Life’s Little Hiccups

    From time to time, life will hand you some unexpected hiccups.  More than likely it will be something unplanned or unwanted.  Instead of allowing this little hiccup to get in the way of your happiness, embrace it for what it is.  For what it is, is all that it is.  In most cases, the scenario could be much worse so take a minute to find gratitude for it being no more than what it was.  Too many of us allow “negative” things to stress us out or control how we feel, but it is important to remember that you are the one who has control over how you feel.  Whatever…
