Don’t Take Compliments

I am not allowing myself to take compliments anymore. Most of the time, when I “take” compliments, I only KINDA take the one that are referring to a completion of some task, and then most of the time they still zip right over my head because for some deep, illogical reason, I don’t feel as if I am worthy of the compliment. It is a fleeting moment. There is no depth. When I am given compliments on who I am at the core, or the gifts I have been given as a human being, well then THOSE compliments go in …

Here’s Your Permission to take a BREAK!

I’ve learned it’s okay, soooo fukn okay to take breaks. I’m tired this afternoon. There, I said it. It’s almost 2pm and I’m tired. I’ve HAPPILY & PRODUCTIVELY worked 14 hour days back to back. Have work multiple “hats” during that time, and now I’m tired. So, I’m taking a break this afternoon. And it’s okay. I have no inner voice telling me, “I’d better do this or I will fall behind,” or “I’d better do that,” or “stop being lazy,” or any of that bullshit. I have set free judgement. I have set free this asinine idea that if …

Living in Abundance! GAINS BABY!!

Recognizing gains instead of losses. It’s this thing I’ve been doing that helps me to remain in an attitude of gratitude as opposed to FREEEEEEAKIN’ Out because I think that time is running out, our money is gonna run out, our whatever is gonna deplete. It’s that scarcity mindset. That fear that, if I do this, or say yes to this, then I won’t have enough of “something” when the NEXT cool thing or even day comes along. It’s been helping me make decisions not from that standpoint. I focus on what the gain is from my action, or non …

Kill Joy. Buzzkill. Comparison.

I am done with comparisons. Mark Twain said it best when he said, “comparison is the death of Joy.” He. Is. Correct. My life feels better without comparisons. Less stressful. Less pressure. Less fear. I actually get to be nice to myself instead of telling myself everything I’m not. I focus on ALL that I am. I don’t compare myself to who I was, what I could do or what I looked like in the past. I don’t compare where I am in my life with others. I don’t compare my business to others. my skills my parenting my values …

You’re NOT Alone.

I am going to ask for help, with everything that I need help with, with no criticism of myself. Whatever I am going through, I’m not alone. Whatever you are going through, you are not alone. But sometimes everyone feels “so alone,” in this crazy world and from my experience I have to believe that we are almost afraid to reach out. What if the person(s) ask think we are inadequate??? Well, they won’t. One of my coaches taught me this-never steal anyone’s chance to be needed. So, in those times when I feel like I am alone or can’t …

Pencils Rule

I am going to write in pencil more often. Flow. Flexibility. The more I go with the flow and the more flexible I am through the twists and turns of a day, the calmer, more centered I feel. The less rigid I am the happier I am. Pencils make me feel like if I have to make a change, I don’t have to scribble out the change or cross it out with a big sloppy “X.” Pencils make me feel like if I have a cancellation, it’s okay, because I can just erase it. No white out, no more ink. …

Start Your Day by Reminding Yourself About How Fuck.ing Awesome You Really Are.

Start your day by reminding yourself how fucking awesome you really are. Like make it the FIRST thing you do! These days I am saying affirmations first thing in the morning instead of in the middle of the day. I used to pick a time in the middle of the day to meditate or just go into silence in a room in my house I have specifically designed for just chillin. I’d read and say affirmations in there. But half of the day had already happened so it felt like o was trying to “reset,” or neutralize and shitty thinking …

Smile. On Purpose.

I am going to purposefully smile more. It feels good, like real good – even in the most tense of moments. I found a huge batch of photos and picked them with Ricky a few nights ago. Pics from high school, pics from college, pics from my 20’s. “Mommy is that you?” Ricky said pointing to me with my once long blonde hair. “Yeeeep.” I said time and time again. After a few more pictures, I lost his attention to some wrestling magazines I had saved because my brother was on the cover. His focus was now on that of …

Potty Time? Trade the Iphone for a Book!

I don’t take my phone into the bathroom with me anymore. C’mon, you do it too, and as a matter of fact, might I add, if ya do, grab a “wipey” and “Iswipe” that bad boy as it’s 1 of the 5 filthiest things we touch throughout the day. From the path, I deviate. But to the bread crumbs I return. I have since put books back in my bathroom. A couple in a basket. A couple on the back of the bowl. All non fiction. Some quote books. A biography. A couple prosperity books. Oh, And A book of …
