Oh the chatter that goes on inside my head!

No wonder I have severe insomnia. My brain never gets any rest because I allow things to rent space in my head. Oh, and the damn sleepwalking…… wonder when I wake up I’m so exhausted.
Most times, I meditate with Deepak Chopra with a DVD before going to bed and that helps.
 We all have the ability to program ourselves and clear the negative things in order to program ourselves to believe in positive things. That DVD helps me do that better than trying to do it on my own.

The minute the upsetting thoughts start inside your head, you can stop it and choose to think of brighter and more pleasant thoughts. Sometimes, it can be just some upsetting News on the TV that sets me off. (Like the recent hurricane, Sandy) I was crying for all those people and some still without power.  I have been praying for them nonstop.
I’ve always been a compassionate person and a true friend. I feel for others especially for the ones who are insecure in their own skin.
Judging yourself is not the same as being honest with yourself. When it comes to living as a compassionate, non-judgmental human being, the only challenge greater than learning to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, is learning to walk a lifetime comfortably in your own.
 Everyone should look for the beauty within yourself where there is worth, and love. 

Smile, because you are beautiful!

Are you juggling trying to keep balance in your life?

Coming across this graphic today reminded me of something I read many, many years ago and it was forever embedded in my mind. It went something like this:

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air.

You name them: Work, Family, Health, Friends and Spirit and you’re keeping all of these juggling in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls (family, health, friends and spirit) are made of glass.  If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same.

You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life.

Also, remember that a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.

Most importantly take care of your health and family!

Treat yourself the way you want others to treat you!

Accept yourself! Insecurity is what’s ugly, not you! Be you, just the way you are, in the beautiful way only you know how. The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others. You must love who you are or no one else will either. And when you are truly comfortable in your own skin, not everyone will like you, but you won’t give a damn!

Your life is all yours, you own it, and what you make of it is purely up to you. Others may support you in your ambitions, but in the end, it’s your creation. You are the only one in charge and with that comes a responsibility. Once you accept this responsibility and stop waiting around for others to make you happy, you will become unstoppable. There will be no denying you. Your life will change, all because of you.

Everyone has special skills and with your skills, your words and your actions, you will change your own world. Choose to let that change be driven by what you love rather than by what you fear.

Focus on the good things, on the opportunities, and on those dreams and values that are genuine. Make yourself the living example of the best you can imagine.

Your life is continually being formed by the way you live it. Even the smallest things have an effect, and all those things combine together to build the life you experience.

Every day is a chance to express the irreplaceable beauty of who you are. Every situation is one in which you can choose to give a rich component and meaning to your world.

Let go of those who aren’t really there. There are certain people who aren’t meant to fit into your life no matter how much you want them to. And the only ones truly worthy of your love are the ones who stand with you through the hard times and laugh with you after the hard times pass.

Maybe a happy ending doesn’t include anyone else right now. Maybe it’s just you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over. Maybe the happy ending is simply letting go.
