What Others Think of you Doesn’t Matter!

Do not be concerned about what people are saying or thinking about you. 
Sometimes their own anger or fear makes them judge or belittle. 
I used to really care about what others thought of me. Now I’m smart enough to know it only matters what God thinks of me. To Him I’m perfect in every way. Isn’t that enough for you to overcome feelings of inferiority?  It is for me. It doesn’t make me better than anyone else yet it makes me feel better to know this truth! It makes me an equal. 
 I once had someone tell me that they thought I was a snot and a snob. This really took be aback  as I feel as if I’ve lived my life trying to please others, be that “yes” girl; always caring and fearing what others thought about me. Oh no!  What if that entire time EVERYONE thought I was a snot and a snob???๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ข
FEAR!!!
Then, I remembered, this person who judged me is human. This person’s opinion means nothing.  Only God’s opinion matters and He reminded me I am worthy of love. Judgement only matters from our creator!!  It doesn’t matter what others think!
What an awesome feeling!

I Start my Day with Lemon Water

We all want our days to go well.  How do we achieve this?  Start your day on a positive note and set your good intentions for the day ahead. Breathe goodness into your day right away. Because...you may wake up and your back is sore from sleeping funny; or your head is focused on the negativity you feel dragging you down in one way or another.  Stop.  Listen to your body and quiet the demons in your head. You have the key to this day’s happiness. Find it. Keep it on an imaginary keychain you place near the space you wake.  For me it’s lemon water!  I start my day with lemon water!  This is how I know it’s going to be a good one!

You Only Have One Life...Choose Wisely!

“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey.  They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” - Joubert Botha
Every person should take time to reflect on what they really want out of life.  Many want only what they think they are supposed to want. Many people spend their entire lives following the conventions of society and end up unhappy and wondering...”Is this all there is?” You must make the time to sit with yourself and really think what it is you want out of life.  Have you had big dreams, but thought that they were out of reach? What do you want to accomplish? How can you make a difference in others’ lives? 
Identifying exactly what will give your life meaning will take time and is subject to change as you grow wiser.  You have the power to change your life and really live!  Emerson said “Dare to live the life you have dreamed of for yourself.”
Step 1. Think.  Reflect. Step 2. Identify YOUR dreams. Step 3. Take action. Society is messed up!

Grief to Grateful

Rewind...back up in time...I’m sorry for not being empathetic enough when someone I care about had lost someone they loved either through death or divorce.  I didn’t truly or fully understand grief until my dad passed away two years ago this month.  Yes, I told you I was sorry and I was. I told you to hold on to the memories and you continued to do that, as do I. But seriously knowing the pain? Nope, nada, I didn’t know how deep was your pain. Now I do.  You see, losing someone you love; be it through death or divorce (as that, too, is the death of a love story)is truly the most painful life event. I equate the circumstance to having a limb unwillingly removed. It was there; now it’s gone.  I loved my dad. It’s that simple. I loved him for one million little and big reasons. If you knew him, you know. I miss him everyday.  I’m reminded of him everyday. I see him in small and big ways everyday. I still trust and listen to him and imagine what he would say/do. A sort of “wwdd” (what would d…
