Wordy girl Wednesday–inspired quotes

Good morning all!

Visualization; seeing what you desire to have in your life, believing it to be possible and then creating it. This is what I’m working on these days. Learning how to visualize takes just a few moments but the changes it brings can be life changing.

This quote below is my focus today. May you start this practice as well. Our dreams are first a thought away!

Sunday Reflections (29) – Mindset

I’ve been thinking the past few days about the reoccurring themes in life. There have been many times when my ideas, types of people I attracted and activities I participated in were within the same general theme. Meaning I wasn’t healthy so my actions weren’t. The people I chose to spend time with weren’t. How I thought about myself and life wasn’t very positive.

But as I’ve talked about, the past few years I’ve been committed to personal growth. To changing how I think and live. The books I read are all about this. The people I spend time with are positive and healthy. My reoccurring patterns are now about growth and mindset.

When you desire to become your best self and live your best life, you have to work on your thinking first and foremost. This thought isn’t new but it can be very tough to do.

These quotes are reminders of that theme.

What are the reoccurring themes in your life? Are they positive? Do you focus on the good in life or the bad? You can always find both.

Being committed to change and growth all starts in your mind. I encourage you to do the mind work. Find books. Podcasts. Blogs. Anything that will feed your mind in a positive way. That will help you change your patterns of thinking so you can change your patterns of living.

I’m off to read my latest book about mindset. I hope you have a fabulous Sunday.

Sunday reflections (28)

I’ve been on vacation this past week. Celebrating my son and my birthday’s. Just relaxing and taking time to be creative and recharge.

These words below I wanted to re-share today as I’m about to head back to work and the usual grind. I find for me my long work days can hinder my creativity. Can leave me too exhausted to do much of anything at the end of the day.

But I’ve big dreams and goals of creating a life of time freedom. Living where I desire, traveling when we want. To create this kind of life, I will have to make changes in this current stage to prepare for the next one.

These just stand out to me today. Enjoy. I hope you are living your best life or at least heading towards it.

Do you have the courage?

I have this quote below on my wall page as it’s a favorite of mine. We so often let fear dictate our choices; often without realizing that it is a driving force.

I made a decision a few years ago that I would not let fear guide me. Sometimes it’s a daily commitment; depending on the topic or the decision I might be facing. Other times it’s just a quiet voice I don’t really hear but it’s still there.

I am possibly a bit of a control freak. By that I mean I am usually the one in charge and have all my ducks in a row. But the downside to that is there is no risk. There is no courage.

If I’m always in charge, avoiding conflict or making mistakes, I’m not actually moving forward. It’s like sitting in the boat anchored to the same spot again and again.

Being afraid to never make a mistake. Or have your feelings hurt. Or admitting you’re wrong or need assistance; all keeps you stuck.

This quote has a new meaning for me today as I’m looking at it through eyes of relationship conflicts. Whether it be with your partner or children or coworkers. If you’re afraid to have difficult conversations; fearful to speak your mind, don’t want to rock the boat; you might not get to see the beauty that you could be heading towards. You could miss out on whatever is right behind the next bend.

I’ve often only thought of this quote in terms of adventures. Travels. New job ventures. But re-framing this to apply to the context of relationships; it’s also very true. We have to be willing to risk, to push fear aside with those we love. We must get vulnerable and honest. When we do, when we let go of control, lose sight of the shore; we open ourselves up to an ocean of beauty. To Joy.

I hope you find your courage today to take risks. Push past fear. Have a difficult conversation. Try something new. Let this quote speak to you. Whatever your “shore” is; may you be willing to go beyond it.
