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???😳😢
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!

Writing Isn’t Just for Real Writers!

What is a “real” writer anyway? I am and I’m not. I like to write and I hate to write. I’ve always enjoyed writing for my own entertainment. Diary/ journal entries, stories; real or imaginary.  Writing for school assignments as a student and as a teacher never brought me joy.  When I’m writing for my own enjoyment there’s no judgement; fear removed.  Writing because I had to brought me stress.  My dad always encouraged me to write. Before he passed away in 2015 I finished my first children’s book that sits in my writing bag. Unpublished. Why?  Just like the assigned writing projects; fear and judgement.  I’m sorry dad for not writing the way you encouraged me to, but this daily blog is my way of honoring you.  So...I encourage all of you to write, too, if you enjoy it.  Whether you or I consider ourselves writers; if we enjoy it, we should do it!
