Choices

Sometimes, we may think our parents are being mean when they tell us the truth. Our mom, a single mom, knew the extent of her teaching. She did not force her life’s principles on us; she left it to us, many times, to choose the best route or solution for an issue.

I inform our children that I cannot make all of your life choices. “I can help you build your foundation and give you the resources and some tools to help you along the way.”

I let our children know that I am here for them, and I do not mind sharing my knowledge and wisdom. For the age appropriate situations, though, I encourage our children to weight their options, assess advantages and disadvantages, and be decisive.

We must help our children to assess the reasons behind their choices. By helping our children to understand their core and their state of emotions and feelings, we can help empower them to be their best. I did not write to push them….but to help them from the inside out.

If we do not help our children to see the power in choices and the possible consequences, who will?

How are you helping your children learn the power of choices?

Make this life great!

You have every right to be here. You were designed for a reason with a calling that only you can fulfill. If anyone tries to tell you differently, please know that their actions and words say more about them, than you. 

How do you get past the negative talk? 

1. Know your truth. There are no mistakes. You were born for reasons, and it is your responsibility to find out those reasons.

2. Seek like-minded individuals such as a mentor, coach, tribe, etc.

3. Spend less time with people who belittle you and the things you do. Do not feed off their negative emotions, even if they are family members.

4. Understand that everyone is not given the same vision. If your vision or dream consumes you, go for it. That’s your calling.

5. Let go of disappointments, anger, or any negative emotions or feelings that you have. Quiet the noise inside , so that the noise outside does not affect you as much.
Make today great!

Know your truths!

There may be days and times when you do not feel your best or up to par, regardless of your accomplishments, skills, and talents.    I  believe that believing, knowing, and truly understanding  truths lessens/removes emotions/feelings of anxiety, doubt, jealousy, frustration, guilt, anger and many other stressful emotions/feelings  so that you can experience life more bountifully.  Life truly is a gift, and there are so many ways to express yourself.  I hope you choose the expression that resembles who you truly are- that you may truly let your light shine.

When you start to doubt who you are and what you are capable of, remember these truths:

 

1. I will praise thee, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are thy works, and that my soul knoweth right well.  Psalm 139: 14

 2. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  Genesis 1:27

 

Enjoy life to the fullest.  It is your gift.

 

Let go and grow!

Let it go and grow.

We all have things/events in our life that we look back on that we are not so proud of-whether they happened two years ago or two minutes ago.  Whether it is crashing your favorite bike, losing that “perfect job”, failing an exam, falling on center stage in the middle of a show, breaking up with a boyfriend,  you want to face your life and walk through the anger, frustration, blame, embarrassment, disappointment, and any other emotions/thoughts you have that do not serve you well.  Those emotions/feelings are there for a reason, and you are doing yourself a great service to not run away from them or hold on to them, but face them and let them go.  Understand why you feel anger or disappointment.  What are you supposed to learn about yourself, and what can you do not to go through that again? Is it part of the root of “not feeling good enough?” Emotions/ feelings we do not address have a way of creeping back in our life, and can cause you to overreact to other circumstances.  When you do not reflect on your life lessons and learn from them, you are likely to repeat them.  The question then becomes why do you want to learn your lesson again and again and again.

Let how you face disappointments, opposition, and other life events be your teacher.  Go inside instead of outside of yourself.  Going outside yourself could be things like bullying, getting into physical fights, emotional outbursts, overeating, and not doing those things to keep you healthy.  Please know that:

  1.  There are no coincidences.  Things happen for a reason.
  2. We are in control of how we respond.  You choose to be happy, sad, joyful, angry, etc.  No one can make you react.  It is always a choice.
  3. The past is the past.  Quit living in it.  What was said two years ago is on the same timeline as what was said two minutes ago….It is in the past!!
  4. Decide right now who you want to be.  Do you want to be someone who reacts to everything that you do not like?  You have the ability to change and can do so.  It is a choice just as you choose to be angry, bitter, or any other thought, behavior, feeling that does not serve you or others well.
  5.  You cannot make someone be who he or she is not.  If he or she is not ready to own up to the truth, then it may be time to let go and move on.
  6. You are not your past.  Do not let anyone tell you differently. If someone keeps reminding you who you used to be, what is in it for him or her ? Everyone has the ability to change.  To be better then he or she was before.  That is what personal development and growth is all about.
  7. It take time for some changes to occur.  Be patient with yourself.  Be your own life coach.  What you tell to others to help them, tell it to yourself.
  8. Find a mentor or coach.  There is someone who has been where you are and is willing to help you get you where you are going.  You are not alone.
  9. Always make time for yourself and do things that  you enjoy.  I believe that everyone has a gift.  Nurture your gift and be creative.  Expect great things.  Expect miraculous things.
  10. Know your limitations and have standards.  Be consistent in who you are.  Walk the talk.  If you are following the crowd blindly, then you may want to watch out for the cliff ahead….could be a steep one with many regrets.

 

Once you properly address/reflect/understand your emotions and feelings, you have increased your understanding of yourself, feel lighter, and can address who you truly are. There is so much to living than regrets, grudges, and blaming yourself and  others for what you go through.   See things as they truly are.   Let go and grow.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
