Stressed

Am I the ONLY Person that didn’t know this? I just found this out this week while searching for healthy quotes at work. I didn’t believe it at first even though it was right in front of my face. I find it so funny \ amusing that Stressed spelled backwards, spells Desserts! No one has been able to clearly tell me who created the English language and thought this would be funny; so I’ll just take it as a personal sign….When stressed, I will now intentionally do or have something that gives me pure joy to go along with my other stress relieving techniques.

Into the Darkness

Darkness is needed for growth. We need it to build up enough strength to navigate through life. What kind of person would you be today if you never experienced pain? You’re stronger and wiser because of what you’ve gone through. The darkness won’t last forever, yet the lessons you learn from it will….

“In order for a caterpillar to become a butterfly, it must go into the darkness, breakdown, push itself through the tough resistance of a cocoon, recreating itself into something Beautiful.”

Doubting Yourself

“Fake it till you make it.” That actually makes a lot of sense. Whatever it is that you want to achieve, think as if you have already achieved it. Envision yourself being  exactly who you want to be. When a negative thought comes to mind, replace it with thoughts of your goals being accomplished; Then work towards them. Every hour, every minute, every second, brings you closer to the moment you can say “I made it.”

Valentine’s Day

I hope you celebrated Love today.

I remember being a teenager walking home from school. I was single and I didn’t have a valentine. I had myself though..my health, my happiness, my smile. I vowed to Always celebrate Love on Valentine’s Day, and I have ever since. Love is one of the greatest gifts we will ever receive. To experience true love with another person is amazing; but to experience true love of one self…. that feeling is unmatched.
