I wish to be a good girl

When someone says that they want to be “better” or “good” it can mean a lot of things. It can refer to something specific, like quitting or developing a certain habit. Or it can be very general, involving overall life-change. People also have different versions of what “good” or “bad” means. So what does itContinue reading “I wish to be a good girl”

Wish Wednesday ~ consistency is key

If you ever want a wish to come true, then you have to be consistent. Tell the universe what you want with clarity and confidence. You can’t give the universe mixed signals, or else you will never get what you truly want. Sending mixed emotions and unstable energy out into the world will bring thatContinue reading “Wish Wednesday ~ consistency is key”

Wish Wednesday ~ faith is the catalyst

All the things you wish for will never be handed to you on a silver plate, begging for you to come out of hiding and feast. If you lock your door, it will remain closed. No one is going to open it for you — they can’t. You are the one with the key. YouContinue reading “Wish Wednesday ~ faith is the catalyst”

The only thing harder than reaching the top (whatever “the top” means for you — it’s different for everyone) is staying there.Continue reading “Wish Wednesday ~ success is scarier than failure”

Wish Wednesday ~ keep your goals to yourself

When it comes to setting goals for yourself and reaching your highest accomplishments, it’s always best to keep it on the private side. You can certainly be somewhat public about it. A little bit of pressure is healthy. Such as, when I posted about my plans for writing every day, I knew that the expectationContinue reading “Wish Wednesday ~ keep your goals to yourself”

Self-care Sunday ~ the soothing effect of pushing yourself

The best way to get ahead in life is gently and with ease. Rushing ahead is only going to make you burnout. We are fragile beings yet capable of so much. To push someone else is draining, wasteful. We tend to push others because we are too scared or lazy to do something ourselves. –TellingContinue reading “Self-care Sunday ~ the soothing effect of pushing yourself”
