On Becoming Lost …

“Be careful not to get lost in your own life by trying to followtoo closelythe lives of others.” ~Plh

So very easy to get caught up in events, situations and circumstances of those around us.

It is important to care and be involved. It’s equally important to recognize when you’ve become so involved that you are neglecting yourself and your own well-being.

Stay balanced and healthy my friend!

Have a happy week and as always … take care of you!

Who You Think You Are … It Matters!

What do you think of yourself as a person? Seriously, come on be honest here, because unless you said I’m a happy and well adjusted individual who thinks of myself as a good person then you’re probably letting the past and other people dictate many of your feelings.

Truth is the following: it doesn’t matter who you were growing up as a child, or in school, if you were viewed as or thought yourself as unliked or unpopular – it doesn’t matter now. Unless you’ve decided to make it matter.

Because who you are deep inside – is the seed of you, of your potential and the possibilities of who you are meant to be. Everything else is an outside influence, you being the one to determine how to deal with them.

Anyone who decides their own self worth is tied into what others think is not seeing themselves clearly. A foggy view at best! Your self-worth is decided by you. All other things should factor in after you realize and accept this as your personal truth.

Our experience in life shapes and molds our character, another truth, however even if your life has been filled with negative circumstances and negative verbal input, it’s still you who decides what to do.

The only person you have to prove anything to is YOU, period!

And from where I’m standing you’re looking pretty terrific. You’re a great person with a huge, sensitive caring heart. The people who don’t realize this both past and present, (because they haven’t taken the time to get to know the real you), well that’s their loss … not yours.

So take another look at who you think you are. I believe the view is pretty amazing. The view of you, as it should be!

Hope your week started off well and keeps getting better. Remember … take care of you because if you aren’t well, you can’t be there for others, or effectively accomplish your own goals.

With sincere affection,

Courage ~ Never be just a reflection!

Never be just a reflection, be the one from which the reflection shines” ~ Plh

Do you think you’re brave? Most of us don’t think we are and yet courage is the type of feeling that induces a strength and power within us to emerge. A bravery we didn’t know we had.

What is courage, exactly? Courage is an internal feeling that often sneaks in when you step out of your comfort zone. When you determine to overcome a fear, doubt or concern, when YOU decide to accomplish something you believe to be important or necessary.

There are no dimensions to courage. You can be courageous doing a small thing or a big thing.

What matters is that you occasionally release and exercise your courage muscle. Because – proportionally speaking – the more you encourage yourself in an endeavor, the more secure you’ll feel about yourself, emerging not as a reflection – but the real deal. The real you.

Have a great week ahead, thanks for stopping by … and remember, always take care of you!

With affection,
Penny
