A shift in your attitude can change your entire life. It can alter the outcome of a situation, by allowing you to navigate around or through obstacles, even bringing new opportunities. It allows you to change directions so that you can achieve better results by using a new approach.
Sometimes we have those moments in life where we feel nothing is going our way. Nothing seems right, and life looks so grim. You sit down and ask, “Why me?” or “What next?” There’s an African Proverb to remember that reads: “However long the dark, the dawn will break.”
Life is constantly changing, and you have control over many of the changes that take place, merely by the choices you make.
Good pride is when who have self-respect, which represents your dignity or expressing your competence. It’s caring about yourself, and possessing worthiness. This is not to be confused with vanity. (Vanity is more about how you think others may see or feel about you.) This “good pride” is a beautiful trait as well as an asset to your being.
As people come and go from our lives, we seldom stop and analyze why; and we don’t realize the influence or affect that this person may have. Generally speaking, we don’t question why, until perhaps something happens and triggers a thought.
Kindness, such a selfless expression. It’s about being considerate and courteous. It’s about expressing tenderness, gentleness, compassion and empathy. It’s about encouragement. It’s about having grace, which moves you beyond “self”. Yes, this expression of kindness is most powerful, yet humbling.
Last week, in Love Yourself Healthy-Part One, we touched on modifying your eating habits. Bringing more color into your meals, and adjusting your meal portions. Becoming mindful of what you put into your body is important. This week we are going to explore the “why” and what the benefits are of eating healthy.
Fear not, eating healthy doesn’t have to be a chore. It doesn’t have to be boring, and you don’t have to deprive yourself of the foods you love to eat. It’s more about bringing healthy choices into your eating lifestyle.
We live in a society that is “beauty obsessed.” Stunning models on televisions commercials or magazines ads, not only for women but equally for men. How often do we say to ourselves “I wish I looked like that.” I am sure you’ve all been there….I know that I have.
Have you ever noticed how much better you sleep after a long day at the beach or an afternoon at the park? Any time spent outdoors will bring you the same results. It’s that exhilarating feeling you get, breathing in fresh air, feeling a breeze brush your skin, and the warmth of the sun.
We live in a society where we are all often impatient. A society that wants everything “now” and it’s an effort when we have to wait. It’s almost as if we are programmed for immediacy. The fact is that everything happens in its own time.
