I hope all is well with you! I want to begin by thanking you for supporting me in all I do! I have received such many beautiful responses and feedback from you! Thank you!! Today I want to focus on life! A new way of thinking! No I didn’t win the lottery, nor am I rich, famous, and I didn’t get a new house or car either, lol. Don’t leave just yet though! lol. Today I want to inspire you to design your own beautiful life! A lot of times we look at others living and wish to be just like them, to have what they have, or even to be them, if possible, lol. Believe me when I say I have been there, done that. I’m not perfect nor do I wish to be. I have learned that life with challenges has only made me stronger and wiser. As I have reached another Birthday, I thank God for another beautiful year of life with my 3 beautiful angels and my sweet hubster! I couldn’t be richer any other way, but I want to share a few tips on how you can feel richer too! Sometimes we look at peoples lives with all it’s glory. We don’t see what happens behind closed doors. They show only the good and leave out the bad and the ugly. So here are my 3 tips as follows.
Change Your Self!
The first thing is to think about 3 things you want to change about yourself. Hold on, I’m not talking about your weight, face, or wanting to look like a god or goddess lol! I’m speaking about digging deep down inside your soul and think about what changes you want to make. I’ll give you an example. Sometimes you may see other peoples life and think “why can’t I be him/her? or why can’t I have that too?” In the meantime we tend to forget our own lives, and appreciate what we have. So if you are the same or going through a similar situation, know that you are not alone my friend. There are many of us who have at one point or another gone through the same feelings. However the first step to stop being jealous, resentful or even hateful, is to start really thinking about your life. I will tell you that I am so grateful for my life, my family, friends and my online social media friends! I’m grateful to God for all he does for me and my family. I know it’s not thanksgiving, but why wait? Be grateful for all you do have. In the grand scheme of things when we leave this world, we will leave with nothing, but regrets or beautiful moments. Memories of a rich life of happiness! Which of the two would you rather leave with? I choose to leave with memories of beautiful moments! So today I decided I will start a grateful journal! Yes you didn’t think I was going to stop being a journal junkie did you? lol.
So yes, get your journals out! I know it’s not New Years either, but why wait! It’s never to early or late to start living life happy! If your life has been full of negatives, start by choosing to be happy! I know that at times we get sad, a bit depressed, and may have these labile feelings. However, if you choose to be happy and change your attitude, just like that, like a light switch that you turn on and off, you can do it! See our attitudes about everything can change your life automatically! Believe it, try it and eventually you will experience it! Three years ago I decided to choose happy and it’s been wonderful! So write down the 3 things you want to choose about yourself that you want to improve. I will give you some examples. Perhaps you want to stop participating in road rage, or you want to stop stressing about so many bills? Perhaps you want to be more grateful. So once you write them down, you want to include the steps to get there. If you want to stop road raging, then the next time someone cuts you off, just think that maybe that poor soul is rushing to get to their pregnant wife in labor. Perhaps they just won the lotto and could care less about that ticket they will get, whatever the reason that will make you laugh, lol. Whatever you can come up with that will make you smile instead of frown and race to try to catch up with them and flip them off, yes I’ve seen it out there, lol. Was that you? lol. Moving on to the bills situation. I know that you don’t want to talk about bills, lol. But I’m here to tell you it’s not a life or death situation. Yes, sometimes we stress about things we cannot change. So if you have mountains of bills, you have my permission to stop stressing! Let me repeat, it’s not a life or death situation! lol. Bills can always be extended, not paid, or go to collections, but you will not be in life or death situation thank God, and you won’t go to jail. Well that depends what the situation is, lol. Ok but not for the most part. You get it. lol. So if you want to change your life and attitude or any part of your soul, then do it. Write down the 3 things you are grateful for every day in your journal! Yes I wasn’t letting you off the hook with writing. You know that even if you hate writing, if you give it a chance you will discover so many things about yourself! Try it and please come back and let me know, as I’d love to know how it worked out for ya! Try doing it once a week if writing daily is too much for you, but start somewhere. Every time you find yourself in a sticky situation, try looking at those 3 things you wrote down, and I’m sure you can knock a smile outta yourself! Okay not physically knocking it out, let me clarify that, lol.
Be Your Self and be Good at it!
So in the beginning I told you that sometimes we all get a bit jealous at times. It’s normal! However, if you find yourself doing it all the time, or feeling a way that is not making you happy, then change it! So my example is this. If you have found yourself thinking about why you can’t have this or that, then find a way to make it happen! First of course be grateful for what you have! Then find what it is you want with all your heart and work smart to make it happen! There is a saying that says “If you don’t like your life, change it!” Easier said than done right? Wrong my friend! You can do anything you want to do if you really work hard and smart at it! Yes, I know that you couldn’t run a marathon if you have a broken back, but you could walk, or have someone drive you, right? lol. Okay you get the point, I hope. What I’m trying to say, is that you can be Your best self even if you have to tweak the perfect parts a bit! So let’s say you wanted to be an actor and it didn’t happen. Jump in on You tube, and make videos and be Your self! I mean don’t try to copy exactly what others do, but just be inspired to take some pieces from everyone! That’s what I do in my channel by the way, shameless plug if you haven’t checked out my you tube channels check them out! lol. If you always wanted to be a writer, it’s never too late! Pick up that pen, and a journal, piece of paper, napkins whatever you have and write! Perhaps if you do it once a week in the span of a year you will have a small book written! If you want a better job, then get off your buttocks and do it! lol. I’m a Nurse so had to say buttocks, lol. My point here is to find what you want and make it happen the best way YOU can. Not the way others do it, but the Best way YOU can! yes I had to repeat that, lol. Just the same way you wrote down the 3 things to change about yourself, write down 3 goals you may want to reach & haven’t even lifted a pinky finger to do! Today is the perfect time to start thinking and writing , and doing some massive action towards your dreams! Turn them into goals, action steps and work on it every day until you get there, and never give up! I always say “Get Rich or die trying!” lol. I mean rich in happiness, but the monetary comes in handy too, lol! I say today is the perfect time, because it’s the middle of the year! Look at it like a new beginning!
So there you have it, those are my 3 tips for a beautiful living! “A really good living!” That’s one of my You Tube Channel name by the way (shameless I know, lol.) It is my sincere hope that I have inspired you to design your best life ever! Have a beautiful day or night my friend, and remember that you can be healthy, mentally well, happy, and organized one baby step at a time! Many Blessings!
Love, your friend Lady Phoenix!
