Changing Our Emotions

By changing our emotions, we impact the state of our health. Changing our emotions need not be a complicated matter. Simply remembering something that makes us smile, or something that makes us laugh changes our emotional state in a matter of seconds.

Sometimes it gets very dark, but given time the sun always rises again.

Make Yourself a Priority

Always be true to yourself. Make yourself happy cause if you’re not happy with yourself, then no one else can make you happy. Make yourself a priority.

Feelings of Self-Doubt

Get on with life. Stop letting your feelings of self-doubt keep you from enjoying everything that life has to offer.

The Victim's Mentality

Being the victim is easy. It’s easy because it’s always someone or something else’s fault. It’s never your fault, though. What a crock. The victim mentality has got to go. The first step in accepting responsibility for your life is to understand that EVERY choice is yours to make. Everything that you do is because you made one decision instead of another.

Good Shines Brighter and Brighter

Proactive gratitude helps us focus our attention on that one spot of bright light and, if we are willing to embrace that, and continue to give our focus to that, it begins to grow. Temporary storm clouds then begin to move off and changeless good shines brighter and brighter into more and more areas of our life.

A Wonderful Gift

Life is a wonderful gift but it is also challenging and sometimes heart-wrenching. We can all use a little motivation and inspiration from time to time to help us navigate the small and large hurdles we encounter on our journey.

We Differ and We Judge

People are alike in so many ways. We all have emotions —— we love, laugh, cry, get angry, etc. We all eat, sleep, breathe, and have blood running through our veins. Yet, there are some ways in which we differ and we judge. Where is the compassion for our fellow man?

Flow with whatever is happening and let your mind be free. Stay centered by accepting whatever you are doing. This is the ultimate.

Chuang Tzu

Get into the Rhythm

Often times, starting is the hardest part. Once you get going, you will quickly get into a rhythm that could last for hours. Just start.

People in this World

Everyone needs encouragement. So many people in this world feel discouraged, pressed in, cornered, unworthy, unlovable, or completely overwhelmed by the circumstances of their lives. You can make a difference in one moment if you will honestly and sincerely encourage them. Let them know that they are capable, that they can do the task before them.

Loved Beyond Measured

May you always be aware you are loved beyond measure and may you be willing to love unconditionally in return.

Blessings in the Simplest Things

Happiness comes from finding the blessings in the simplest things in life, feeling the simplest emotion, enjoying the simple things. By taking the time to count your blessings, you are well on your way to a happy life.

Live In Gratitude

With each new day comes the opportunity to focus on our blessings and to live in gratitude for all we have. It is amazing how much brighter the world appears when you look for the silver lining, even in the most difficult of situations. Choose to find the lesson in times of struggle and have faith that tomorrow will be a better appreciate the beauty of nature that exists all around you...and to know that right now you are exactly where it is intended for you to be.

Every Piece of Energy

Who you meet has a bearing on who you ultimately become. Who you become has a bearing on your behavior and reputation. It is your reputation you must guard with every piece of energy you have in your life.

Positive People Take Risks

Sometimes parents are not up to the job of parenting and they make mistakes. You could not help what happened to you as a child but you can learn to take responsibility as an adult. You can shape your future but only if you learn to be brave and take risks. Positive people take risks even if they are scared.

Deal with It and Move On

When something goes wrong think about why it went wrong (so you can avoid the same situation in the future) and then do something about it. If you said something better left unsaid or forgot to do something you should have done then acknowledge the situation and act in a positive way. Say sorry – it won’t kill you. Explain what happened and put it right if you can. Can you think of one person who never gets things wrong? Actions speak louder than words so think about what you can do and do it. People who develop a positive lifestyle know that it is not making a mistake that is the problem but how to deal with it and move on.

Apologizing is not an admission that you were wrong. On the other hand, it is proof that you are confident enough to say it. This act will not only make the other party feel much better, it will inspire them. So by being the "bigger person" and apologizing, you create nothing but positive energy all around. This is as rewarding for you as it is for that other person.

Giving Unconditional Love

The practice of giving unconditional love requires by its very nature that you don’t expect anything directly in return for giving it to others. By providing unconditional love to others, you are expressing your faith that good things will be drawn into your life through the law of attraction.

Two Choices

Everyone has two choices. We're either full of love or full of fear.

Albert Einstein

Feel Your Self-Worth

Begin to value yourself and feel your self-worth by becoming your own greatest fan and supporter. Every time you accomplish something, give yourself a pat on the back. Seriously, say- great job, I am very proud of myself. It doesn’t have to be a big accomplishment, it could be getting your car washed, everything you do is valuable, begin to learn to appreciate yourself.

Overgeneralization is best characterized when we believe if one bad thing happens, then everything else is doomed to go poorly. The biggest overgeneralization red flags are words like never, always, should or everybody. Understand an over generalized statement is another form of a negative thought. Re-think your words and reconsider the circumstance. Attempt to find something positive.

Emotion Doesn't Mean Our Character

Just because we are experiencing a certain uncomfortable emotion doesn’t mean our character, our soul, has been downgraded. It just means for that moment, in that small space of time, we feel a certain way about ourselves. When we allow ourselves to be human and give our spirit the grace and mercy it deserves, we are in a better position to reframe self-limiting thoughts and keep them from manifesting to the point they begin to define who we are.

Life's Two Most Important Questions

Life’s two most important questions are "Why?" and "Why not?" The trick is knowing which one to ask. Understanding why we do certain things is the first step to change. Until we understand what motivates us, what we get from doing a particular behavior, there is no momentum to begin the change process. Likewise, by asking "Why not?" we begin assessing the risk versus reward aspect which can lead to bringing about productive change in our lives.

Things that can Change

When we think about the things that can change our lives in an instant we usually think of the negative ones first: accidents, our employer going out of business, or the news of a loved one becoming seriously ill. There is plenty of room; however, for good things to happen too, we just have to be more patient. Losing weight, improving a relationship, or creating a rewarding career all take effort, but the life-long satisfaction these bring can help to fill our souls when they are emptied-out by the bad.

Be Nice to Yourself

If you don’t like what someone else says to you, you can walk away. But if you don’t like what you say to yourself, you can’t walk away. Therefore, if you’re going to be with yourself all the time, you might as well be nice to yourself.

Accept Your Child's Path

Sometimes it’s difficult to accept your child’s path other than the one you had hoped and planned for them. So be reminded it is your responsibility to "give them roots and give them wings". Give them a solid foundation of love, but give them the freedom to follow their dreams.

Opinions and Beliefs

Learn to respect other people's opinions and beliefs. Let me ask you, what makes you think that your opinions and beliefs are more important than others? You have to realize that what is good for you might not be good for others and what is good for others might not be good for you. You can disagree with someone's opinions and beliefs in a respectable and positive way, not in a negative way.

Life has a Price

Everything you want in life has a price connected to it. There’s a price to pay if you want to make things better, a price to pay just for leaving things as they are, a price for everything.

Every Breath

Every second, every moment and every breath of your life is nurtured by attitude.

Begin Today and Make the Difference

If each of us were to say: One person does not make the difference,
there would never be love and peace on earth.
You and I do make the difference,
begin today and make the difference.

Keep Your Heart Free

Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry. Live simply, expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget self, think of others. Do as you would be done by. It’s the way to happiness. Try this for a week and you will be surprised.

Treat Yourself

Treat yourself as a wonderful parent would treat a small child
or as one very best friend might treat another.

Different Colors

We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors but they all exist very nicely in the same box.


Your feelings in any moment are yours to choose. You can Choose to feel the wonderful reality of your most treasured Dreams long before those dreams have been fully achieved. And when you do, you put yourself in a positive, powerful Place from which you can surely make those dreams real. When You feel good for no reason, you immediately begin to create The reasons.

I'm Thankful

Life - I’m thankful for every single, person, place, feeling, action, re-action I’ve ever had in my life.

Make Our Mind Strong

Affluent societies have put huge effort into improving physical facilities, but our minds have suffered neglect. Increased levels of negative states such as anxiety, addiction, irritability and depression have accompanied burgeoning desires. As well as undermining the health of individuals, these negative attitudes and emotions harm society and the environment by causing a loss of fundamental values in our actions. When we feel sad and empty inside, we become a part of the problem. We comfort ourselves by blaming others and circumstances. Instead we have to learn how to make our mind strong. That means fill it with positivity.

Every day may not be good, but there’s something good in every day.

Visualize Pouring Water into a Cup

Clear your mind of everything you thought you knew. Be like a child in having no preconceptions of how life should turn out. Visualize pouring water into a cup. That's like life flowing into a young child. Now visualize trying to pour clear water into a cup filled with mud. That is like the flow of creation being resisted by expectations and demands one attempts to place upon life.

The wages you get every month, is recompense for your Time. What are you spending your Time on today? Are you getting the return you expect? Remember, the currency of earth is Time, and all we have is Today.

Life for a Season

Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

Responsibility of our actions that influence the lives of our family, friends, co-workers and people we come into contact with in life.

You Look Beautiful

Call it flirting or appreciation of beauty but appreciating looks or saying nice things about it makes a real impact. People are hungry for this kind of appreciation and if you deliver it nicely, depending upon situation, you wont need to do more hard work after that. You look beautiful, You have beautiful voice etc. are some of examples. At same time commenting about someone’s body parts is not decent at all.

Be Yourself

You are what you are. Copying someone or forcing yourself into situations only brings discomfort. Graduate yourself to a level that inspires you. Have courage to face yourself and enjoy your existence. Sometimes the boundaries we see are follies of our mind that always push us back. Win the battle of your mind, never underestimate real you. You can fake for a day but life is too long.

Sunday, October 10, 2010

You will make mistakes. Everyone does. You will have regrets. You must learn to accept these things and learn how to move on. Dwelling too long on mistakes serves no purpose but to cause you unnecessary pain. You won't learn from mistakes by hating yourself for making them. Take responsibility for mistakes, take measures to rectify them if possible, and then move on.
Be a better person and know always where you are coming from and who you are before you meet someone new, and hope that they will know you for who you are.

Three Groups

People can be divided into three groups: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what happened.

A Million Different Ways

Our lives are made up of a million moments, spent in a million different ways.
Some spent searching for love, peace and harmony.
Others are spent surviving day to day.
But there is no greater moment than when we find that life,
with all its joys and sorrows,
is meant to be lived one day at a time.
You can inspire and encourage others towards personal growth and development! Others can be inspired by you in many ways, whether they are watching you from the sidelines or whether you share with them how you overcame a difficulty when they are going through a similar trial.

The Gifts

Strength, courage and wisdom are just some of the gifts you get from overcoming adversity.

Creating Moments to Treasure

People can change and things can go wrong, but always remember that life will go on. Life is about taking chances, expanding your horizon, and creating moments to treasure.

A Better Tomorrow

You can't change the past, but understanding it will make for a better tomorrow.

Beat Yourself Up

Self-respect is the ability to view yourself from a number of different perspectives. In this way, you can gain insight into your personality and way of thinking. You will be less likely to be influenced by what others think of you, which will allow you to pursue your own goals freely. You may also have less of a tendency to "beat yourself up" over previous mistakes in life.

Despite the immense challenges that we have faced and continue to face, we refuse to indulge in negativity or pessimism. We are an organization that believes in empowering people to be their best.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself. When tempted to criticize others, ask yourself why you feel so strongly.

Help Someone

You can always pray for someone or keep them in your thoughts, when you don’t have the strength to help them in some other way.

How Many Breaths in a Day?

The more often you are aware of your breath, the more control you will have over a wandering and easily distracted mind, and the more you will be able to live in the present moment. Remember you have around 26,000 breaths a day. How many of them are you aware of?

Those Who Hurt You

You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.

View life from the standpoint of what you have instead of what you do not have.

The Human Camera


Appreciation and self-love are the most important tools that you could ever nurture. Appreciation of others, and the appreciation of yourself is the closest vibrational match to your Source Energy of anything that we’ve ever witnessed anywhere in the Universe.

Emotional Health

To be emotionally healthy you need to spend a lot of time being open and learning. As soon as you close your mind to new ideas or information you cut yourself off from the possibility of being healthy. This post could perhaps serve as a starting point. It is by no means the end point. Read, research, study and practice. And never give up, because emotional health is an ongoing process.

If I Quit, It Lasts Forever

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Find the Right Target

In Kyudo (Japanese archery) you do not aim to find the target. You must find the right attitude, the right steps. The arrow goes to the target itself.

What is Treasure?

We all have three eyes. Two for looking out and one for looking in. Why would we want to look in when everything is happening 'out there'? Because the treasure we seek is inside, not outside. What is treasure? Beauty, truth, peace, happiness. You already have what you seek. You already are stunningly beautiful. You are already peaceful and loving. How come you don't know this? Simple, you never look inwards, beyond superficial memories or recent experiences, so you never see your own riches. Take a moment to stop, look in and see. Don't rush. Don't search. Just look. And be aware.
