When did you stop listening to your inner guidance?! Now is the time to start listening again!

What do you like? What makes you happy? What do you enjoy most in life? What rings your bells?

Stop listening to the peanut gallery around you – and yes they are ALL part of the peanut gallery. There is not one other person who thinks the same thoughts you do, who have your unique set of beliefs and desires – therfore there is no one and nothing outside of yourself who can accurately guide you on your path. It is ultimately an inside job. You are 100 % in charge. Others might inspire you, but YOU are the one who CHOOSES what to be inspired by. Listen to what resonates with you and follow that. You were born with an inner guidance, it is time you start listening to it. ❤


I got an exciting assignment at work ðŸ˜Š

Today I went back to work again, and one of my bosses asked me to do something really exciting: She wanted me to talk to all her teachers at a meeting next week. She wanted me to tell them my story, what I have been through and how I managed to turn my entire life around. How cool!

I really look forward to this! I feel so blessed to have such caring bosses that really value me and my talents. I feel so appreciated. 💖


A break from life â¤

Sometimes all you need is a break from life, a break from all people, a break from all the noice and chatter around you. Find refuge in your mind, in your imagination. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and relax. Continue to focus on your breathing while you imagine pleasurable scenarios that bring you relief.


How to be more present and feel better


Take a deep breath and become more aware of this moment. Before you listen to someone else, before you speak to someone else – ask yourself “How do I want to act in this situation? What matters most right now? How do I want to feel? How do I want this other person to feel as he interacts with me? And focus on those good-feeling emotions and scenarios that you want to experience.

Even if someone else is very distracted or even rude to you – take a deep breath and focus on how you want to act, how you want to feel.


You are enough â¤

“You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.”

~Maya Angelou


When you want to save everyone around you – be a light-house

Just rest in the knowing that all is well. You don’t have to have all the answers. It is enough that you do your best to sooth yourself into relief emotionally.

It is not your job to save everyone else – when you start with yourself and tend to your emotional balance you are of most value to others as well. You never see light-houses running around trying to save lost ships, they just stand strong and shine their light.


Be yourself, follow your bliss and enjoy life in ways that please you â¤

It is time for you to start loving yourself and to start listening to what feels good to you.

It is time to stop caring about their approval or disapproval. Start approving of yourself from the inside out. You don’t need any other person to tell you that you are beautiful, that you are right, that you are good and loved. Let those feeling emanate from within.

Allow others to feel as they see fit and think as they see fit. Allow yourself to feel how you want to feel. You don’t have to look for validation and approval outside of yourself any more – feel the relief, freedom and empowerment in that!

Let today be the day when you let all expectations from others go and begin to embrace your own wishes and desires. This is your life. You are the main character in your story. It is time for you to start enjoying your time here. ❤


Time for forgiveness â¤


A new beginning – let go of all complaints â¤

Let today be a new beginning for you. Stop all your critisim and negative words about others and yourself. Stop yourself in the middle of a sentence if you catch yourself beginning to complain. Back up, go more general and lean in a more positive direction. If it is not possible to do so, be silent or change the subject. Don’t add to the negative momentum. If there is negative aspects then there is the other side of it to focus on, what you do want, what you do prefer and what you do like.

Let your words be filled with love, appreciation and positivity. Let the words you speak enhance feelings of freedom and empowerment. ❤


“I want to quit my job” Yes I am very sensitive – it is a gift â¤

Today I got some hurtful criticism from my boss that brought me to my knees. At first I was furious because it felt so unfair. And now I just feel sad about it.

My co-workers were so supportive of me and tried to sooth me back into feeling better. They were on my side and thought my boss had acted without taking the time to get all the facts straight first. I used to think he was a supportive boss but right now it feels far from that. Even the thought of resigning from work has occured to me tonight.

But, I will work on regaining my emotional balance again by focusing on the bigger picture. He really does mean well. He really does know I do a great job. He cares about his teachers, he wants them to feel satisfied with their work. I do feel rather good about having him as my boss. He cares a lot about his students. He wants our students to succeed and feel good. He also wants to do a good job and meet the expectations of others. I think I understand him now, I see the bigger picture. I really do value his caring and his decisiveness. 🌹

It does feel better. I feel like I can breathe again. Writing is one of the best ways I know to find relief and feel better.
