Price You Pay for Holding on to Hate

“Hate is an invisible chain.”

When you don’t let go of hate, you let the thing or person you hate maintain control over you. You allow the hatred to keep the channels of negative energy open, sucking out positive emotions and holding you back from true happiness.

Cut off the hate and move on! When you cleanse your mind and soul of grudges and negative thoughts, you make new room for positive emotions and joy. Take a moment today to consciously let go of all hatred. Savor the new energy that you’ll feel bursting through to take its place!

Are You in a Race With No End in Sight?

“It takes goals and motivation to win the race.”

Do you know what is important to you? If not, you may have set unreachable goals, or may not have set goals at all. Without meaningful goals, life is much like a race with no finish line. There is never any reason to celebrate!

If, on the other hand, you set and achieve meaningful goals, you have many reasons to rejoice. Remember, even small goals count. You get to enjoy many moments of satisfaction and celebration. Your self-esteem and confidence get a boost, because you have proven to yourself that you are capable.

Determine what is important to you, and resolve to pursue your goals with passion and persistence. The race is about to begin – and you want to win it!

Does age really matter?

“Age is something that doesn’t matter – unless you’re a bottle of wine.”

You are only as old as you think you are. If you embrace new opportunities, seek new learning and stay motivated and lively at heart, you can still do anything. In fact, given the wisdom and experience you’ve amassed over the years, you can probably do more today than you’ve ever been able to do before!

Keep your body lively through healthy diet and exercise. Nurture and exercise your mind with new experiences, new information, new friends, interests and challenges. Stay in touch with the world and no matter what your age, the world will stay in touch with you!

Depressed Over Your Bank Balance?

“Your bankbook is not a measure of your abundance.”

Some of the world’s most miserable women have the most impressive bank balances. Despite their monetary net worth, they lack the riches of love and the gifts of joy that others gain from simple pleasures.

Never under estimate the value of all that you have.

Recognize the priceless worth of the love and respect you receive from family and friends – and zealously guard it.

Take note of the wealth of self-esteem you gain from the work you do or the talents you exercise – and preserve it carefully.

Whatever your bankbook may say, you are a woman of substance and abundance!

Survive Rough Times

“When the going gets rough, you need self-worth.”

When you’re looking good on the outside, with a new outfit or haircut, your day goes more smoothly and you handle setbacks more easily. This feels good and helps us handle the daily grind. But, tackling challenges is much easier and more dramatic when you feel good about yourself on the inside!

A strong self-worth builds personal resilience, which helps you face challenges and bounce back from adversity. You grow stronger from the inside out, and feel the confidence to persevere and move forward with enthusiasm.

So when things go wrong, don’t reach for your credit card. Instead, reach inside for that priceless deposit of self-worth!

Total Peace is Here

“We all need a special place where we can go.”

A special place is where you feel total peace and complete safety. Your special place could be a meadow, a beach, your garden or the bedroom you grew up in. If you can, go to your special place or picture it in your mind, for a moment.

Look around and notice the familiar shapes and colors. Listen to the sounds and smell the fragrances. Notice the temperature and how your body feels. Involve the senses of sight, sound, taste and touch.

If your special place is the beach, listen to waves crashing against the shoreline; hear the hiss of the foam as each wave recedes. See and hear seagulls flying, while you notice the salty sea breeze, the warmth of the sun on your skin and the sand between your toes.
