If You Stay A Victim, You Have Given Up On You, And You Have Given Your Power To Your Victimizer–Know That You Are Way Too Strong To Be A Victim In Your Life! #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

If you stay a victim, you have given up on you, and you have given your power to your victimizer–know that you are way too strong to be a victim in your life! #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

~~~

Life is a huge, amazing journey…

One bad experience or circumstance shouldn’t hold power over your whole, huge, amazing life!

If you allow that to happen and stay a victim, you limit who you are, and you limit your choices and love and purpose and relationships and passions… you limit your life.

This world wants and deserves the unlimited you! ❤❤❤

Remember, You Can’t Change People, But You CAN Change Yourself #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

And it’s a tough one…

Remember, you can’t change people, but you CAN change yourself. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Sometimes the change WE make is to stop fighting, stop talking in circles, stop wishing things were different… and gently walk away. 💔

Take Time for Yourself

Today’s Challenge: Take time for yourself.

I will be away for several days because I’m having minor surgery next week. I’ve decided to unplug and focus on reading, writing and relaxing while I prepare and recover. I’m excited.

If I’m too bored, I’ll probably check in with my favorite blogs and bloggers. Yay! 🙂

Have an amazing weekend… and next week. 🙂

Imagine Everybody You Meet is a #Family Member

Today’s Challenge: Imagine everybody you meet is a family member.

I know some people aren’t close with their family, but I’m one of the lucky ones who LOVES my relatives like crazy. I’m not perfect, they’re not perfect, but around these people, I can be myself and they can be who they are. I feel the same way about my friends, they are family, too.

Sometimes I get caught up in my own world, in my own busy life, and I don’t want to connect with others; I don’t want to put in the effort. 😦 So I decided to imagine that these strangers are my family, no need for awkward small talk. I already know these people and they already know me.

For an introvert, this is not always easy, but this little trick of the mind has opened up my world and I’m loving it! And truthfully, aren’t we all family… aren’t we all so very much connected anyway… 🙂

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND… AND HAVE FUN WITH YOUR HUGE FAMILY!

 

Try Not to #Worry. Worrying Takes…

Today’s Challenge: Try not to worry. Worrying takes away all the good in your life right now.

I had to learn this lesson while I was trying to save my Pug from cancer. (She’s still doing great!) I’ve also had to learn this over the years while going through major life changes. Easier said than done. I’m going through another life transition… they just keep coming… I don’t like change… 🙂 But this time, I’m using exercise to help me get through it. I figure worry is nothing but pent-up nervousness, frustration and fear of the unknown–basically, worry is nervous energy that needs to be released. A walk helps, lifting weights even better, but today I’m going to try to go for a run… This should be interesting! LOL I’m not much of a jogger, but I have the need to run off some of this sad, negative energy. I’m hoping I can do a half mile to start. Wish me luck! 🙂
