Break Free From Misery

“Acceptance fuels change.”

Some of us suffer from painful relationships, dead-end jobs, or “survival” mentalities. The truth is that we aren’t going anywhere because denial or blame keeps us stuck in misery. This kind of life is awful.

Think about your own situation. Are you using denial to survive dissatisfying consequences? Accepting and taking responsibility for mistakes and choices is not easy. It takes courage. But you must accept responsibility if you want things to change.

When you accept the reality of your situation, you take the first essential step to a new and better life. This is reason for celebration!

Change Whatever You Can Dream Of

“You have a choice.”

Every day you make literally hundreds of choices, consciously and unconsciously. One of those choices is your attitude. What was your attitude like when you woke up? What is it like now?

When you’re aware of how your attitude affects your well being, choices are so much easier to make. With this new found knowledge, you can literally change whatever you can dream of.

You deserve a great life, happiness and self fulfillment. Choose today to make it that way!

Stop Criticizing Yourself

“Are you your own best friend?”

Sadly, most women are their own worst enemy. Who needs enemies when you can consult your harshest critic anytime you glance in a mirror? Logically, we should all be our own best friend, but it often isn’t the case. We reserve our harshest criticism for ourselves.

Learn now to be gentle with yourself. You deserve special treatment simply because you are special. Who best to comfort you, but you? Who best to compliment you, but you? Learning to love yourself is the greatest gift that you can give yourself. No expensive cosmetics, no retail therapy can deliver the inner warmth of knowing that you are happy being you.

When we love ourselves, it is no longer important that our hair is not perfect or that our thighs are a little dimpled. We don’t beat ourselves up for imagined imperfections anymore. In fact, we embrace our imperfections.

Today, look in the mirror and smile. The person there will smile right back. She loves you. Love her, too.
