I Don't Know How to Set Goals

I’m not a goal setter. Goals are too restrictive. I was never taught how to set goals. Goals aren’t achievable in my life. I’ve set goals before but have never accomplished them, it’s no use. Have you ever caught yourself saying or thinking any of those? I have. The one I used to use the […]

Let Your Inner You Come Out

Let your inner you out to have fun and come alive. I’m not sure where I heard this, but it immediately resonated with me. I am one who has been extremely rigid in my way of living in the past few years. I cared so much about other people’s opinions that I didn’t let myself […]

Dreams

There is so much programming out there telling us to “follow your dreams” or “let your imagination run wild” or even “you can be anything your heart desires.” The problem with this programming is that it isn’t universal. Depending on where you grow up and where you come from, you might not have dreams, an […]

Consistency And Stability

My parents got divorced when I was 12. Every year after that, my mother moved us to a new home or moved our trailer to a new location. We were always moving. Gone were the days of any consistency with life. Stability? Yeah that didn’t exist either. I moved out when I was 17 and […]

Fear: I Can’t Do What I Need in My Own Home

Not long ago we had company for a week. Company that we love having and wouldn’t want to push away. But I work from home. And I tend to work in more locations than just the office with the desk. I have a lounger section of our couch and the kitchen counter that I work […]

NQTD

When you make a decision, how often do you question it? Are you like me and question most decisions you make? No? Okay, well maybe this isn’t for you then. Yes? Oh then stay tuned. Why do we question decisions? I have learned that I question my decisions because I haven’t trusted myself. It’s a […]

Freedom

All of my life, I was looking outside of myself for freedom to be myself or freedom to be successful or even just the freedom to be loved. As a child, I witnessed that all of these came from external sources. The primary example I had was that nothing good came to me if it […]

Do I Have The Right Attitude?

For a lot of people when they hear the term attitude, they think about some person being sassy or down right rude. They don’t jump to consider how attitude plays a part in our every day life. They don’t consider their own attitude. I didn’t consider my attitude for most of my life. I didn’t […]

You Are in Control of What You Accept

Each and every day we control what we allow into our lives and what we don’t. We allow that boss to be a dick to us. We allow the person who cut us off in traffic to get on our nerves. We allow ourselves to be nitpicky at our spouses for not taking out the […]

It’s Easy For Her…

…there is no way I could ever be like her. Have you ever thought that? I have. It is defeating. It is depressing. But there is so much wrong with that thought. It took me years to realize it and learn how to overcome it every time that I encountered it. Now, I see that […]
