That uncomfortable feeling inside you; the one holding you back, censoring you, degrading your confidence. It’s a liar, it doesn’t know any better. AWOL nation said it best, Never let your fear decide your fate! Face and conquer your fear.
This is the truth: Fearlessly be yourself. You are just as wonderfully fucked up and beautifully flawed as the rest of us. You deserve the best life possible. You are worth joy, love, empathy, understanding, forgiveness, and self acceptance. The first step is to decide who you are, who you want to be and go be that person. Fearlessly, without arrogance or apology.
This is the truth: There will be times in your life when just the Big Girl Panties ( Big Boy Boxers) aren’t going to cut it.
Some battles are too important. Any battle for YOURSELF, is the MOST important.
Find those Sparkly BGP, as Righteous Momma described them the other day, and learn to love and fearlessly be you!
Happy Monday Lovies!
PS- I just HAD to….
I went searching for a good image of the “I have loved the stars…” Galileo quote, (hoping for a curly haired girl and the moon, was disappointed) But stumbled upon this.
If I was feeling more ornery tonight I’d state THIS IS THE MOTHER FLIPPING TRUTH!
Apply it to business.
If you don’t know the answer don’t make something up. I’ve never been berated for stating “I’ll have to get back to you on that” or ” So and so will have a better answer, I will get with them and follow up with you”
Apply it to relationships.
Speak the truth to me or choose to stay silent. Both are your choice and both mean something in their own special way depending on who you are and how much I love you, or don’t. It is in my nature to always speak the brutal, direct, sometimes delivered gently truth. I’ve never been very good at bullshit, sharing the truth of how I feel and what I think is too dear to me. Bullshit takes too much effort to maintain and it degrades our relationship.
Back to searching for that perfect image… someday I will teach myself how to make them….
08/29/12 I’ve been meaning to move my quotes page to a quotes category for some time now.
Today I finally just took the plunge, making some tweaks along the way.
Have a good day Lovies!
I love quotes, but I rarely seek them out. I like them best when they come to me through a random FB status update, or the whiteboard in my old boss’s office. Wise words of wisdom picked up from a friend, or a colleague or phrases from a book or a song. Something about the quote has to move or enlighten me in that moment, sort of like a little message from GOD ala the karma of the divine universe. Something about it has to stick around and serve its purpose. My Mantras are a part of my personality, but I often fall guilty of forgetting or losing sight of the others that moved me in a moment. I’ve always kind of wanted a place to keep them all written down, like maybe a quote journal…. I’m a working Mother, this IS my quote journal. I can write them down here and then actually have that handy place to come and review when I need to be reminded or add and purge. and voila, a quote page is born.
There is only one you for all time. Fearlessly be yourself
Put on your Big Girl Panties and Man/Woman up
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Eleanor Roosevelt
Don’t have to be the prettiest, if you have the the mind and willingness. No one stops, a girl who knows what she’s got. Jimmy Eat World Stop
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world
It is what it is. So now what?
Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish them. – Unknown
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Albert Einstein
In a moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.
“It’s impossible.” said pride.
“It’s risky.” said experience.
“It’s pointless.” said reason.
“Give it a try.” whispered the heart..♥
” Love all, trust a few,do wrong to no one.” Shakespeare
There are 5 things in life you cannot recover: A stone…after it’s thrown. A word…after it is said. An occasion.. .after it’s missed. The time…after it’s gone. A person…after they die. Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably And never regret anything that made you smile, Enjoy Life!!
Sometimes your world has to be turned upside down in order to live right side up
We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us ~E. M. Forster
You cannot teach what you don’t know. You cannot give what you don’t have. You cannot forgive what you can’t forget. But you can love even if you’re not being loved back.
Love cannot be found where it doesn’t exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does.
Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk. Dalai Lama
When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself. ~ Wayne Dyer
