Positive Thoughts

Moving into Self-Love

Loving yourself can be difficult when you have limiting and derogatory messages playing in your subconscious mind. Most of these messages are recorded during childhood, but their effects can be far reaching! Did you know that you are still being influenced by the things your parents and others said to you decades ago?

Do you need to be more patient with yourself?

One of the biggest ways we hold ourselves back is by being far more demanding than we would with anyone else. We support, nurture and encourage our loved ones to be successful and happy, then turn around and belittle and scold ourselves for not doing or being “enough.”

Easy Ways to Boost Your Mood

When you’ve got a case of the blahs it can be difficult to see an easy way out of them. By nature, emotions tend to feed off of each other. Before you know it, you’re focusing in on every possible worst-case scenario, putting a negative spin on everything people say to you, and otherwise spreading misery wherever you go. Avoiding this chronic state of unhappiness can be as simple as taking action to lift your spirits before you start the downhill slide!

Choose to Feel Good!

Have you created a habit of feeling bad? Do you often find yourself focusing on the negative 99% of the time? If so, start turning it around by choosing to feel good as often as possible.

Got Your Blinders On?

If someone accuses you of “wearing blinders” it’s usually a negative comment that refers to your inability (or refusal) to face reality or admit the truth about something. While it’s true that denial can be a bad thing if you use it to avoid growth or hide your head in the sand…

It’s The Journey That Counts!

When most of us set a goal or try to improve our lives in some way, we focus only on the end result we want to achieve. We see it shimmering in the distance like the Promised Land, our own personal utopia. We fantasize about how much better our lives will be when we reach our goal, and we can’t WAIT to get there!

Weed Your Mind (of Negative Thoughts)

Weeds in a garden can be incredibly pesky, persistent and destructive to the plants you do want to cultivate. Any good gardener knows that frequent weeding is necessary if you want to keep a clear area for healthy plants to grow to their fullest potential.

Easy Ways to Have More Fun :)

Life can often turn into an endless procession of mundane obligations if we’re not careful. Besides the never-ending household chores, we consistently carry the burden of work duties, family responsibilities, personal goals, and commitments to our community, neighbors and friends.

Use the Power of LOVE to Feel Good!

One of the most powerful techniques to feel good fast is by tuning into the essence of LOVE. When you feel anxious, worried, stressed, or angry, if you will spend a few minutes focusing on a feeling of LOVE, your whole emotional state will shift.

How to Boost Your Confidence

Boosting your confidence is often a simple matter of changing the way you see yourself. If you hold a negative self-image because of painful experiences from the past or constant negative reinforcement, creating a more positive self-image will help you to begin rebuilding your confidence.
