forgiveness, Forgiving

More on ForGIVEness

“The path of forgiveness takes us back into ourselves, where the source of all conflict begins.” Michael Dawson

Peace starts within. The fastest track to peace, is through forgiveness.

If you are in pain and feel some forgiveness for yourself would help, try this exercise:

Throughout your days find examples or times when you can practice forgiving yourself. Just think of it like a school lesson or an activity that your are participating in rather than judging or evaluating why you feel you shouldn’t be forgiven.

And these can be little things. For example, you say that you are going to do something that day and you end up not doing it. Maybe it was like me today saying “I am going to get the bedroom organized the way I want it”, and I didn’t complete that task. This is a perfect example of a way to practice forgiveness. I am telling myself right now that it is okay that you didn’t get that done. Relax Maggie it’s okay. It’s okay.

I know this might sound silly but the more ‘practice’ you can have forgiving even yourself, the more you work the forgiveness muscle and it becomes easier to forgive and it can happen quicker.

And then you can practice forgiving others and that too becomes easier. It starts to feel like taking off an icky coat or cloak that you are wearing and you don’t want to wear it anymore!

When we forgive we are FREE! I have written before on the power of forGIVEness and you can read those posts here. Perhaps you will find them helpful.

And if you are having a hard time today for whatever reason, I am right now sending you Love and Support. Stay strong and may peace be with you.

Mothers & Motherhood

Blessed Is The Mother

Blessed is the mother

whose tasks are a labor of love.

For she is a willing servent

to her Heavenly Father above.

Blessed is the mother

who mends hearts and broken toys

For she shows her children kindness

and fills their lives with JOY.

Blessed is the mother

who teaches her children to pray

For she gives them each a blessing

that remains throughout their days.

Blessed is the mother

who knows childhood years will pass

And spends the time she has for now

to make memories

that will last.

Breaking Down To Break Through

Quote by Maggie Holbik: “Sometimes in life we fall down or even hit rock bottom because we are meant to find something there”. #trust

Life has its ups and downs and it is interesting indeed. In fact the ebb and flow of life is what makes in interesting. :=)

Hitting Rock Bottom

However, there are times where we fall or hit our bottom. Whether it is through the loss of loved ones, addictions, illness, job loss, breakups, trauma, or just anything that we feel derails us and brings us to our knees.

In life we all experience these to one degree or another, or our loved ones and friends and colleagues do, because this is life.

These derailing times can be hard, very hard.

However, as a person who loves to offer HOPE and inspiration, I reflected on the quote I made above, and I could indeed find many examples and stories of people that I know who have shared their stories of how their rock bottom led them to a new chapter in their life and often times that new chapter was a beautiful one.

I remember reading somewhere or hearing someone say “When you throw your hands up in the air and give up, that is the best thing to happen”. Why? Because it means we stop the fight and we ‘break down to break through”. This is where the magic happens because we no longer are in resistance.

The Sweetness of All Of It

Through my years of my own experiences and hardships, my coaching of others and my own relationships, I have taken from these tough experiences, the ‘sweetness’. What do I mean by the sweetness?

I mean things like:

. When we have had an illness and we recover or it gets better, we no longer take our health for granted.

. When we lose someone we love, we are reminded to cherish those who are still here on earth next to us.

. When we give up our fight with our addiction(s) and find freedom.

. When we have learned boundaries that were necessary and can now feel safe and even experience JOY from this.

. When we decide that we have more power over our circumstances than we once thought, it brings freedom and peace of mind.

. When a relationship ends and we start the real relationship with ourselves and understand self-love.

. When we move or move on and find new things to cherish and new things to experience.

These are just a few examples of ‘the sweetness’ and I am sure you can come up with some of your own too. šŸ™‚

I hope that this post has offered you something, whether it is insight, strength, HOPE, or anything at all that helps. That would make MY heart happy.

And as always, if you are struggling and need help, please reach out. It takes strength and courage to reach out and I know that you have that. I believe in you.

With Much Love,

Maggie

Cooking Tips, Creative Cooking

Healthier Chicken Wings

When you want to indulge in chicken wings but want to make them at least a little bit healthier, here is a tip.

I made these tonight. And what I did is boiled them in water first for about 5 minutes or so until they were done and a lot of the fat was boiled off.

Then I marinated them in a homemade teriayki sauce I made and then later cooked the in the oven at 350 degrees until they were as crispy and as gooey as I wanted them.

Basic Hack

So basically boil off the fat, season the wings with salt and pepper and sauce of your choice and then cook in the oven on a sheet pan or cookie sheet until they are the way you like them. You can even put the broiler feature on in your oven at the near end to really crisp them up and then toss a little more sauce on them to finish them off.

And ENJOY!

These were delicious.

Law of Attraction, Mindset, thoughts are things

Thoughts Are Tools & It’s Cool!

A smiling man holding hammers with more hammers in the background and the quote by Maggie Holbik “Thoughts are just tools for us to use to our advantage. Just like a hammer can build a house or destroy a house, use your thougths wisely”.

Thoughts Are Tools!

Thoughts are things and tools are things. Each of them can be used to build or to destroy.

When one understands this, it becomes apparent that it is best to CHOOSE thougths to help with the building of a better day or even a better moment. We can choose thoughts moment by moment and these thoughts build our life.

Thoughts are things and have a frequency. Like-minded thoughts will attract more like-minded thoughts and they will ‘build’, just like tools help to ‘build’ things like houses.

Do you want to know an easy example of like thoughts attracting more like thoughts? Okay. Think of a song you like in your head. Hear it, sing it in your mind and get in the groove…….

Now watch how that song is going to get stuck in your head!!!! You are going to keep attracting the frequency of that song because you put it in there and now it keeps attracting like-minded thoughts aka the song!

Now that is something to think about šŸ˜‰ šŸ˜‰

I hope that you use your thoughts for your highest good and as always if you are struggling and need help, make sure you reach out. Sometimes we just can’t change our thoughts and we are in a dark place and that is okay. Know that help is out there. Talk to someone you trust, or your doctor or health professional.

Have an amazing day everyone and happy thought choosing. šŸ™‚
