Planting Patience

Day 278 “You know great things are coming when everything seems to be going wrong. Old energy is clearing out for new energy to enter. Be patient!” – Idil Ahmed Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard you try, things just don’t seem to work out, and you just don’t get the results you’ve beenContinue reading “Planting Patience”

You Deserve It

Day 262 “Don’t ever criticize yourself. Don’t go around all day long thinking, ‘I’m unattractive, I’m slow, I’m not as smart as my brother.’ God wasn’t having a bad day when he made you… If you don’t love yourself in the right way, you can’t love your neighbour. You can’t be as good as youContinue reading “You Deserve It”

Eye On The Prize

Day 259 “Your goals are closer than you think, stay focused, keep your eyes on the prize and follow your heart.” – Ricardo Housham I’ve said this many times, in many ways – believe in your vision, no matter what “reality” looks like, and if you keep the faith, it will manifest.

It’s how we get there, and what we make of the trip.” – Carmen Dell’Orefice If there was ever a role model of how to stay positive in the face of adversity, and how to make your own luck, Carmen Dell’Orefice might just be the poster child. ThisContinue reading “Ageless Beauty”

Expect Good Things

Day 235 “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln Writing about the Olympic Creed reminded me of something I read long ago – an optimist’s creed. Optimism is about expectation. The Universe responds to our thoughts and beliefs, so it delivers whatever you expect. If you expect badContinue reading “Expect Good Things”

Represent Yourself

Day 230 “Champions are not the ones who always win races – champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. ‘Champion’ is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than theyContinue reading “Represent Yourself”

Got Your Back

Day 228 “Each person holds so much power within themselves that needs to be let out. Sometimes they just need a little nudge, a little direction, a little support, a little coaching, and the greatest things can happen.” – Pete Carroll As the saying goes…It takes a village. Like I said in yesterday’s post, children need support and encouragementContinue reading “Got Your Back”
