• Love YOURSELF!

    You can’t give from an empty well. There is a clear difference between being selfish, self centered and taking time to rejuvenate yourself. To me it’s the difference where one is the end in itself and the other is a means to an end. We woman have such a nurturing spirit that we always want to help serve and cater. Especially as mothers and wives we are always trying to support our children in their dreams and also our husbands in their goals sometimes we may forget about our own. Sometimes I even feel guilty that I have my own dreams and goals that I want to accomplish and am…

  • Power of Forgiveness {Inner Beauty Series}

    At some point or numerous points in our lifetime we will come across a time when we will need to forgive others for wrongs that have been done against us. But many a time there will also be times when we will need to ask for forgiveness for wrongs we have done against others. Forgiveness is a pill that we all need to swallow at some point so we too can benefit from it later on. To me it’s a double edge sword, I think that if I hold a grudge against someone I am hurting them but little do I realise the only person that I am hurting is…

  • How to live Intentionally

    What the heck is “Living Intentionally”? This is an extremely broad area of conversation that can encompass many different lifestyles and situations. But for the sake of my blog and what I will be sharing, to me living intentionally essentially means living your beliefs  to direct your life that you want and dream of, and by living those beliefs you are not aimlessly just going with the flow. You essentially have more control of what comes in and out of your life. It really is living your truth! Living Intentionally reminds me of the scripture: 2nd Nephi 2:26 And because that they are redeemed from the fall they have become free…

  • Developing Positive Self Talk {INNER BEAUTY SERIES}

    A little criticism can be good so we can find areas to work on, but the problem is many of us take it too far. Why do we talk so negatively to ourselves? We are supposed to be our number one cheerleader and we are the first ones to put ourselves each day. Over the long term negative self-talk can turn into high stress levels and depression. It will also cause us to believe whatever story we are telling ourselves whether it is true or not. (Most of the times they are lies!) My Story Before starting my blog, I was really scared to start a blog. Scared what people…

  • My Happy Positive Dance Playlist

    We all know that music can be such a powerful tool in our homes, work, church and even education learning environments. Children are taught through songs right from when they are born as they hear the melody and the words being sung to them from their mother’s lullabies. Children can feel a sense of calmness and security when they hear such familiar tunes. We too can be affected on a daily basis by the songs that we choose to listen to and influence our subconscious mind either positively or negatively. I know for me whenever I get into the car there are just some songs that just take my thoughts…

  • Beautiful Confidence {INNER BEAUTY SERIES}

    Self Confidence is a skill that requires you to have a belief in oneself. I would also like to add to this definition to me it’s also believing and trusting in a higher power for me it’s God. Self Confidence is a journey that can take us in and out of our comfort zone. Self-confidence is also knowledge and understanding that you don’t know everything, we can admit to making mistakes but are willing to learn and move forward. Self Confidence is much like a muscle that you need to keep on working at otherwise you can slowly lose it. WHY develop Confidence? Self Confidence can enhance your reputation (jobs,…

  • 10 Ways to Help the Environment
