Steer your life.

There are many times when you may not be in the driver’s seat of your life.  There may be times when you follow the influence of others over your own personal desires.  There are times when your emotions will drive you, rather than your conscious thoughts determining your direction. Fear, anger, resentment, depression, loneliness, people…

Strut your stuff.

Walk as if you own the place. Walk as if every room is enhanced because you walked into it. Let your confidence beam from within and strut your stuff. ~Kimberly Hodges

Try to walk in her shoes.

There have been so many times where I have made judgements about others. I didn’t understand why they may have victimized me, been mean, rude or hurtful.

Stand up for your rights!

This past Saturday was a historic day for women.  Across the world, millions joined together to march for their rights and values.  Women and men alike held powerful signs that made it impossible to ignore their voice.  They marched for themselves, for the people they loved and for the experience of future generations to come….

Set your boundaries.

There’s nothing like a strong powerful “no” to ward off the unwanted.  Stand in your power. Know your boundaries.  Assert yourself.

Be beauty.

Fully embody the qualities that you wish to experience.  Do not just wish to be beautiful, be beauty and radiate it everywhere you go.  Allow the beauty of your soul to shine from within.

Remember what makes your heart sing.

Was it bubbles? Was it riding your bike?  Was it swinging on a swing?  Remember those things that made your heart sing as a child and do them again.  Get lost in the awe and magic of fun.
