“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey
There’s a tendency to want more in life — more time, more money, more friends, more bigger, better, whatever …
Who wouldn’t want their dream home, all the time in the world for hobbies and passion projects, and a roster-full of friends just waiting to come over for a glass of wine?
You can be a lighthouse, a shining star, a ray of sunshine all you want, but you’re bound to encounter grumpy, disgruntled people in your day.
You know the ones we’re talking about …
“Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.” — Henry Ford
Think about that quote, because it’s a powerful one. Your success is determined by Y-O-U and your belief in yourself.
Our wish for you today is to 100% believe in yourself. In your strength, your wisdom, your intuition, and your ability.
“There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.” — Jim Henson
Do you ever feel like you need a good vent sesh, but you don’t know who to turn to?
Do you crave a girls night out, but aren’t sure who you’d go with?
Do you feel like you could use a little more support in your life, but haven’t found a friend who can help?
We have a hunch you love your partner. And we mean really, truly, deeply — would do anything for them — kinda love.
Still, even if you have that one-of-a-kind connection, you might notice that the two of you start falling into a “working relationship”… as in, your attention is more on the “to-dos” of life, like bills to pay and picking up the kids from school, rather than the love between the two of you.
“Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” — Mother Teresa
We all know what matters most in life — the people we love and who love us back. But it’s easy to get caught up in our daily grind and forget to take the time to actually tell the people who mean so much to us that we really, truly, seriously care.
“You gotta learn how to take a compliment because I’m not going to stop making them.” — Claudia Gray
It’s so easy (thankfully) for us to give compliments. “I love your new haircut!” “These muffins are fantastic.” “You’re such a good friend!” You say, like it’s no big deal.
It’s officially back — that time of year when our schedules ramp up and it’s all go-go-go with back to work, back to school, kids’ soccer games and on and on. Leaving you with zilch, nil, nada time to actually breathe, say ahhh and just be.
Though some weekends are crazier than others, and sometimes jam-packed schedules are unavoidable, there are ways you can create more white space in your calendar.
Has anyone told you lately that you’re amazing? Really, you’re wonderful and the world’s lucky to have you in it!
But if you’re not feeling so hot about yourself these days (hey, it happens to all of us!), it may be time for a self-confidence check-in.
Most of us aren’t born with Wonder Woman levels of self-confidence.
