New Beginnings


5 Steps to Reinvention





1. Create a vision for your future.
Sit quietly, close your eyes, and imagine the people, places, or situations that you need to leave behind.  Now imagine the future that you want, whether it’s simply a feeling, a group of people, or a situation such as a wonderful new job.
Imagine how it will feel to be in that new place. Picture the sun coming up behind your future, the warm glow of the light on your face.
Stand for a moment and silently voice your appreciation of everything that came before. Once you’ve thanked the past, turn toward the sun, and with compassion and gratitude, imagine yourself walking away from the past and into the future.

2. Write about your reinvention.

Imagine a scene from it or write about how you’d like it to play out. Where are you living? What do you do in the mornings, afternoon, evenings? Who are your friends? What do you spend your days doing?
Continue writing for as long as this exercise feels invigorating and exciting. Write scenes, dialogues, lists, plans. Make the future come alive. Write about how it will feel to be there. Keep your writing somewhere where you will look at it occasionally. Feel free to add to it.

3. Surround yourself with visual reminders of the life you’d like to create.

If it’s a new job in a particular field, put objects or images from that field someplace where you’ll see them every day. If it’s a home, find a picture of a house that you love and put it near your front door. It can be anything that reminds you of what you’re moving toward.

4. Now that you have a vision of your future, break it up into workable tasks.

What do you need to do—every day—to create that vision? Look for work? Meet new people? Search for a place to live in your chosen town? Make it specific. Make a list of everything you need to do and a schedule for when you’ll do it. Then do it and commit to keep doing it, one day at a time.

5. Every day, go back to that vision of you walking towards your future.

Every morning or evening, close your eyes, and see yourself walking into the rising sun, toward your dreams, and reconnect with why you’re moving toward this new possibility.
Reinvention is neither easy nor always smooth. Often we encounter resistance. We don’t want to let go, even of things that cause us pain or that are obviously already out of our grasp. We often struggle with limiting beliefs or stories about ourselves that hold us back from trying new things.
But there is one way to keep your compass pointed to this new life, even in the midst of any resistance or struggles you may encounter on your path.
Each time you find yourself slipping into old habits—isolating yourself, making excuses not to look for work, procrastinating on a task that might help you advance in your career—don’t bother wondering why you’re doing it or beating yourself up.
Just ask yourself this: “What can I do in this moment to keep moving forward?”
Then, no matter what you feel in the moment—lonely, self-critical, tired, lazy, or disappointed—do something to maintain momentum, even if it’s one small thing. There’s an old adage that says that true courage isn’t about not feeling fear; it’s about feeling fear and acting anyway.
Choose courage instead of letting your fear choose your future for you.

Affirmation: I have the power to direct the play of my life. I choose to study the life lesson, process it for my highest good and let it go!








Thought for today~


“Always remember to slow down in life; live, breathe, and learn; take a look around you whenever you have time, and remember everything and every person that has a place within your heart.”
 ~Author Unknown 



What did you say?

Thought: Speaking in public can be tricky, just ask a politician these days. The words can be interpreted in many way - depending on the individual(s) you are speaking with. Take for instance, a person that started their day on the positive,  she may only see the beauty of her ride into the office and the person that started their day on the negative can only see the potholes, rain, bad drivers etc. Without knowing how each person in your area started their day, we need to be careful how we put our thoughts out in front of everyone ~ especially when it can be taken personally. A sentence like, "this refrigerator is a mess" can be taken as "it's always my burden to clean this box out" or "I'm feeling a bit guilty because I have not cleaned up my stuff in the fridge".
See the difference?
Affirmation: I see people through my heart and do not judge them. It is up to me to filter my thoughts before I speak and filter what I hear so that my spirit can continue to grow in the positive.





Always consult your intuition/ inner guidance

Thought: have you ever been in a situation when you had a hunch that you were doing something that was not for your higher good? For example, the other day I was in a phone store deciding if I wanted to buy a hotspot adapter for my IPad, Laptop etc. Though I was feeling uncertain, I found myself in line to talk with the sales person about purchasing one. It was costly but even more bothering - it was another 2 year contract and my intuition was screaming to walk away. My instincts were so strong that I left the store.
The amazing part: 20 minutes later an employee for the Apple Store showed me that my phone can be tethered and used as a hotspot at a fraction of the price. Intuition/Inner Guidance?
Affirmation: I trust myself and my intuition. All the answers I need to anything in life can be found within me if I ask for guidance and act on it.


Sister? You got your light on?

Thought: Just like everything else, the inner light needs nourishment. The soul's light is fueled by our love of self, life and existence. How do we keep our light bright? Conscious living ~  taking time to meditate, appreciate and activate our inner love of self and the life we live.

Affirmation: The Doll's Creed
I am strong
I  am beautiful
I am the force behind my love for life
Whatever I think I am ~ I am
This is my day and I will live it with no regrets
                          ~ ♥ ~


Today's Working Woman

Thought: What is it like to be a Woman in the work force today?
The women today seldom stop everything once their paid job is completed for the day. In this
 "super-society" the clock actually ticks louder before and after the time card has been punched, i.e.children, community, church, household duties, and maybe a personal maintenance item or two.
Remember the commercial, "Bring home the bacon ~ fry it up in the pan". 
The point: you and only you make your schedule for the day. Don't forget to put YOU on the to~do list!
Affirmation: I am a beautiful, smart and strong woman ~ I will take care of myself by scheduling ME on the list of things that need taken care of  each day.


Thought: Living Life through a child's eyes.

Thought: Living Life through a child's eyes.
When you're in a room filled with children, ever notice how content they are with the smallest things? The butterfly outside the window, the music coming out of their toy, or the wonderment of mixing colors to create a new picture for the refrigerator?
As adults, we often forget to stop and and marvel at the small things in life. Our thoughts whirling around about the big responsibilities we carry or how we can squeeze in one more phone call to the client that is ever so needy. Always thinking, "I will get to my wants and needs later".
Affirmation: Slowing down is mandatory in my life. It helps me be present when interacting with family, friends and especially me.
I will take the time to admire all the rainbows set in front of me

Thought: Change is inevitable


In order to make it through the natural changes we women go through, we must continue to educate ourselves.
This will make the difference between being locked in or stepping out of the box when it comes to liv
ing life fully.
Whether it's weight gain, uncontrollable anxiety, or loss of interest ~ it can all be conquered though self awareness and education.
Affirmation: I love my life and will live it fully.
 
 

It's normal to have ups and downs ~


Thought:  Sometimes we doubt ourselves - we think we don't have enough of what we think we should have in this life. There is always someone with more but remember there is always someone with less.





Affirmation:
I realize that the love for life is nurtured within me. I may not have all that I want, but I have what I need to build what I want.

Reaching out ~

Thought: 
 How many times have you sat in the same room with the same people and you don't even know them?
It could be work, community, church or kid activities. 


Reach out - your next best friend may be sitting right next to you ♥

 Affirmation: 
I am aware of the people that surround me. 
It is my vision to see past the meeting and get to know my future friends.

A quote overheard in passing ~


"Stop barging in here and infecting me with your anxiety"!

Thought: 
How often do you unload personal problems on your friends? 
How long do the negative feelings hang on after the talk?


Affirmation: 
I will be conscience of the damage my anxiety can do to others..from this day forward I will make an effort to keep my conversations positive and leave my friends filled with thoughts of well being.

Tape this to the vanity mirror ~


Some good rules to live by ♥


Getting it.

Thought:
Feeling like you can't move forward in life? Confused, filled with self- doubt ?
Stop the self-inflicted fear.
It has been proven that those that fill their minds with positive thoughts attract positive lifestyles.






Affirmation: 

Starting today, I will embrace my positive self and block the personal fear that is caused by negativity.
I choose to live ~ positively ♥

Let the fear go .

Thought: Isn't it amazing that when you look back over your life, you realize that you have overcome "fear" in so many ways. (flying, relationship abandonment, social and private situations - etc.). Until you move past  your obstacles, you don't know how strong you really are.


Affirmation: I am strong. When I face fear I know that I can move past it and Live Life Fully.

Standing Alone ~


Affirmation: I can stand alone and love it
