How is your attitude toward yourself? Are you in alignment with who you want to be?
Once again, this is a lot about self-love. When we can have a positive attitude about ourselves and when we think positive thoughts about ourselves, we activate the frequency of love and acceptance which is a beautiful thing. 🙂
Studies have shown the very act of being kind to someone else leaves the giver with feelings of energy and well-being they were not experiencing before the kind act.
In recent blog posts around thoughts, thinking, and the power of affirmations, we talked about thinking good thoughts to attract more good thoughts and affirmations about embracing who we are which in turn helps us to love ourselves more. These are all important because they help us to love ourselves more!
When we love ourselves more we spread loving energy and shine our loving light onto others and it truly becomes a breeding ground of love and more love.
The more we soften and embrace the loving energies within our own hearts, the more we open the highway of love for everyone.
Love is the common thread of who we all are. We have come from love and we will return to love. And we can love ourselves and others all the way back to where we came from. And as I often quote my favorite quote from the late Ram Dass:
With Much Love,
I was doing some tidying up and ran across a book by Wayne Dyer called “A Promise Is a Promise” and it was bookmarked to this page. “The power of faith is incalculable. If you have an inner knowing that cannot be shaken, regardless of how tragic the outer circumstances seem to be, you will gain the… Continue reading The Power of Faith
“Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.” Kahil Gibran When I think about the most soothing moments in my life, they are the ones where I felt love and that I was also shown love. I really do believe that we are here on this spiritual journey to express love and to expand… Continue reading Love & Loving Kindess
When I think of death, I think of peace and stillness…. that purely glorious and tranquil space that you have no words for because none will be needed. Fortunately, one of the things that I have recently discovered about life and living, is that you can reach that type of peace right inside of life… Continue reading In Your Darkest Hour or Your Weakest Moment You May Just Find Peace
Be a thought thinker and you will be in charge of your own life! Thoughts are tools for us to use as we will.
Thoughts are the magic wands of the creative workshop in our minds! Thoughts are to be honed and crafted for the task at hand.
Step 1 is to identify that the thoughts that you are thinking are not making you feel good.
Step 2 is to declare that you realize and recognize that this is so.
Step 3 is to declare that you wish to choose new thoughts and then do it.
For example, maybe you think that the people in your life are not supporting you and it makes you feel unloved and unworthy. Change your thoughts to supporting thoughts so that you start supporting yourself first! ie. “I am not sure that the people in my life are really intentionally trying not to support me, maybe they are preoccupied with their own battles, but either way I am going to support me right now and in this moment! And I will start by telling a new story about what I think is happening and my story or thoughts around this go like this….. and then tell a new and improved version that is positive and becomes an asset to you, not a detriment.
For example maybe something like this. “I understand that everyone in life is going through stuff right now. I am not the only one and I can’t control the actions of others but I can control my own. So with that said today I am going to support and love myself a little more. Hey, maybe I will go for a walk and show myself that I do care about my health and well-being. 🙂
The main point in all of this is that you consciously choose and craft your thoughts around those things that especially are causing you pain first and foremost. We want to move away from pain and fear so that we can start attracting positive thoughts and feelings about our life and in turn thrive rather than just survive.
I hope that you found this helpful and here is a link to my other posts around Thoughts ….

If you have recently lost a pet, you know how hard this can be. As a Life Coach who gets to hear my client’s deepest and most endearing feelings, losing a pet is one of the most painful experiences one can have and yes it can be akin to losing a loved one. Love is love and love has no boundaries.
One of the most challenging realities of being a pet owner is that our pet’s lives are so short and yet they pack so much love into those short years.
Losing a pet is more than losing a pet. Losing your beloved pet is also losing an endeared companion, a trusted friend, a great listener, a helper of lowering your stress and a booster of love in your life!
And unfortunately there are many people in life who do not understand the depth of our loss when it comes to losing our furry family member. Have you ever heard comments like “Just get over it”. Or “I don’t understand… it was only a dog”. These are from people who TRULY do not understand this intense grief. This is why I am sharing here a great resource that I found to help you through the loss of your pet.

Here are another 3 affirmations in my collection of affirmations. Today we target embracing life. Please enJOY!
Please never underestimate the power of affirmations. 🙂
I love quotes and saw this one this morning. I had never heard of it before but it ties in nicely to what I believe and what I also believe is happening right now!
We are in a time of awakening and we are indeed awakening the empire of our minds and the best part is that we can learn how to harness this powerhouse!
It is of my opinion that we have been living vastly in a 3 dimensional world. In this world of creation we were more linear and creative in an industrial and constructive way. It was more about ‘things’.
Now we have entered the New Dawn and are awakening to that part of us that is a force. That part of us that is divine and infinite. That part of us that is what makes us all one and is an intelligence beyond comprehension.
This is just a brief synopsis for you to get started using the power of your mind and the divine source available to you, but I have written many posts with more insights if you would like to access those also. I will post the link below.
And interestingly enough, there was a quote I heard today that was also new for me and that I also loved very much! So I wrote a blog post around that one over at my Business Coaching Blog and you might also enJOY that one.
Here is the link to that one and have fun with building the empire of your mind! 🙂

Today is Christmas Day and as I pondered on today, on the year ahead, and on the year past, an idea came to me.
You know how gratitude and being grateful in life is such a huge deal? I for one, practice gratitude on a regular basis and believe it is one of the most rewarding things in life. Gratitude makes my life richer and sweeter.
But because it was Christmas morn today and there were some gifts involved, I started thinking about the true gifts in life.
As I showered, I thought of the gift of another yet another warm shower to enJOY. I then started to think of the gift of another meal as we were about to have brunch. And then my mind went to a place of Yes each moment can be a gift! And if we see it that way each experience can be like opening a gift for the first time and it increases the enJOYment of the moment.
Of course the people, the love and the memories we make are true gifts in life also but so are the moment by moment events and moments.
So this will be my new form of practicing gratitude on a daily basis and moment by moment. Like here I am with the gift of being able to write yet one more blog post and the gift of my fingers still working well enough to hammer at this keyboard.
I have also decided to gift myself in the coming year in a way that nurtures my soul and gives me fulfillment. What is my plan for this gift to myself?
I have decided that I am going to do WAY more of what brings me JOY. I already live my life this way but I am going to practice spending MORE time on the things that I truly, truly love to do and less time on those things that are more mundane and that I do because I think I ‘should’ do them.
For example, I know that I love to write and I love to take pictures. I will honor both of those things on a daily basis. They will be first and foremost instead of when I can fit them in. I already do both of these things daily but somehow I now realize the gift of the gift so to speak and I know that I am meant to enJOY my gifts of expression and that it is more important than ever! As the saying goes, if not now, when?
And I will look for and savor the little gifts brought to me in each moment.
What about you? Will you take some time today or whenever you are reading this to acknowledge and embrace the gifts in your life moment by moment, and the things that bring you JOY?
Will you do more of them? Will you put YOU on your priority list for 2021?
Today I bestow on you many Blessings and I hope you life is filled with and infinite amount of gifts each and every day.
