Choose your words wisely

Good morning everyone. Choose your words wisely. Especially when you are speaking of others. This is not a new saying, but it holds very true. For what you say about others, says more about you then it does about them. Choose kind and uplifting words whenever possible. And if you don’t have any kind words, then don’t use any at all. You never know what others are saying about you when you’re not around. Live with no regrets. Have a great day.

Do what’s right

For all of us, there is pressure all around us from our friends and our peers.  Pressure to follow the crowd.  Pressure to do what everyone else is doing.  What if what everyone else is doing is not the right thing.  Oh sure, it may be the popular thing, but that doesn’t mean it’s the right thing.  Always follow your heart and do what you know to be right.  Even if it’s not the most popular thing.  I would rather stand with my head held high full of integrity for doing what was right over what was popular.


You attitude determines your latitude

Good morning everyone. Attitude is everything. When you and your attitude are negative, you’re always doubtful, and you don’t believe that good things will happen, then you have manifested exactly that upon yourself. However, when your attitude and mindset are positive, you act positive, you are positive, and you believe you can beat anything or do anything, then you can. Always have a positive attitude and manifest nothing but good things for yourself. It’s all up to you and your attitude. Live with no regrets. Have a great day.

Don’t measure yourself on the words of others

Far too often, we measure our own beauty on the words of others.  We listen to what they tell us we are rather than listening to our own hearts and believing what we already know to be true.  Do not listen to those who would say you are fat, or skinny, or ugly, or plump, or selfish, or self centered.  Rather, let your beauty shine from the inside out.  For you know how beautiful you truly are.  Those that speak of others are the ones who are shallow, and actually speak more of their own insecurities than anything else.  Go ahead.  Let your beauty shine for the whole world to see.  I feel it getting warmer already.


Stop trying to change the person you fell in love with

Good morning everyone. Remember this whenever you are arguing, or fighting with the one that you love. When you fall in love with someone, you fall in love with them for exactly who they are. So what are you doing when you are arguing or fighting with them? Typically you are trying to change them in some way. Why are you trying to change the person you fell in love with? Take a step back. Take a deep breath, and think about what you are doing. You both don’t always have to be right. Agree to disagree and continue loving the person you fell in love with. Have a great day. Live with no regrets. Have a great day.

Don’t say a word

We’ve all heard the saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  Or, “silence is golden.”  Well, there’s another reason not to say anything at all.  Because saying nothing can sometimes have the biggest impact.  You’ll really get people’s attention when you don’t speak up, or when you don’t say anything.  Try it sometime.  You’ll be surprised.


Without risk there is no reward

In order to get the greatest return on anything, there must be some risk involved.  Don’t go through your entire life being afraid to take a risk.  We’ve all heard the sayings.  “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.”  And, “No risk, no reward.”  Don’t let yourself be held back.  Don’t let everyone else pass you buy because you’re too afraid to take a small, or calculated risk.  Let’s see you get out there, have confidence in yourself and reap all the rewards you can because you made the decision to take even the smallest of risks.


Challenges only become roadblocks when we don’t change our mindset

Obstacles, dead ends, and road blocks are all just challenges in disguise.  All challenges can be overcome.  You just have to believe in yourself and your ability to do that.  If you continue to call you challenges things like obstacles, dead ends, or road blocks you will psych yourself right out of being able to overcome them.  Don’t psych yourself out.  Conquer them instead.
