Stop Blaming Others

Remember that you have to stop blaming others for your misfortunes.  You have to stop harping on the past and what went wrong.  “What-if’s” will not help you resolve today’s problems.Dalai Lama quote

A sign of wisdom is learning from your mistakes and moving on.  We all make mistakes and make some bad decisions now and then but the the key to life is to learn from it and grow as a person.   Only you hold the key to peace and tranquility in your life.  You have the power to be happy with the circumstances you are dealt.  Not every day is going to be a joy but if you learn to let go of the past and stop  blaming other people for your misfortunes, life will take it’s course and run much smoother.  Let your inner anger go.

Let it go!

One Step at a Time…or Three

If you are here on this page I think it’s because you are looking for some kind of motivation and/or inspiration to get moving with your life.  You know you’ve got to get out of this rut.  It’s a new year but you just don’t know how to start.

Well, the good news is, you did start!  The fact that you are reading and looking for ways to motivate you is a good sign.  First and foremost, I have to say that if you believe you are clinically depressed or have serious health issues, please seek medical advice.

For those of you just caught up in the “blah” mood of the season, the weather or whatever the reason…let’s get going!!


Step 1: Make a list of things you want to do today. – Organization is the key to anything! Whether you have your own business, work for someone or you are a stay at home mom or in the PTA, you have to get organized!  Sitting in your sweat pants all day on the computer is not going to get you going! Prepare a list of things to do, even if it’s only 2 or 3 things.  Start somewhere.

STEP 2: Be grateful. Think of and write down 2-5 things you are grateful for.  Think of what your life would be like if you didn’t have these things or people in them. Remind yourself, why you want these things and why you want to be a better person.

STEP 3:  Get moving.  Literally! If you are at home, go run an errand or go for walk around the block. It will help to get your endorphins going. If you stay stagnant all day, your brain too will become stagnant and that’s when all the negative thoughts creep in.  If you are at the office, try to go outside during break and get some fresh air, a different perspective than being behind your computer screen all day.happiness_is_a_choice

Start with just these three things today or maybe even tomorrow, (if you started reading this too late in the day I’ll give you a break on this one!)

Life is Beautiful

Life is too Beautiful to waste it on people who don’t love you for who YOU are!beautiful_nature_wallpaper_88
“If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you’ve made, if they don’t realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go.” ― Steve Maraboli
