Would you agree that it’s very easy to be self-critical? It’s easy to think you’re not good enough or you’re not pretty enough or skinny enough or rich enough or young enough. It’s easy to say you “can’t” and then never actually try. It’s so hard to overcome your fears that hold you back from doing what you want to do. It’s easy to let negative thoughts determine your course in life.
If any of this is applies to you, I want you to try something. I want you to post notes around your house, in your car, on your mirror, in your closet, in the fridge, wherever it makes sense for you…and I want you to write positive affirmations about you or about some outcome you wish to achieve. Positive affirmations redirect your values, your goals and your way of thinking.
I want you to think about the things you are good at, the things you have achieved, the people who love you, the things you like about yourself. Write it down, even the small things. If you think you have a great head of thick, healthy hair, write it down. Because that little reminder will hopefully redirect your focus away from something you don’t like about yourself the next time you look in the mirror.
When you stay focused on the positive, you have the capability to change your entire outlook and adopt a better attitude. When you adopt a better attitude, people are attracted to that and you find yourself in healthier relationships. Practice positive affirmations daily. At first, it may not be easy to hear the affirmation above the internal noise of negative thoughts and feelings, but just like anything, constant practice makes it easier. Just a thought.
People we love sometimes make choices we don’t agree with. It’s hard to watch, and when our opinions go unheard, it can be really difficult to know what to do. We get angry, we walk away, and sometimes walking away is the right thing to do. But other times you need to be supportive and make amends, otherwise, you may be in for a long drive of regret…
I am not quite sure where to begin. My mother passed away last week and I was able to be with her for her final moments. I was so distraught because she elected to stop her cancer therapy and allow nature to take its course. We had fought over that and I didn’t speak to her for nearly a year. Then I received the call that she was going to pass and all I could think about on the drive over was that wasted year!
At the hospital I had your show playing softly for her at the end and you played Martina McBride’s “In My Daughter’s Eyes”. How beautiful that was! And how perfect. Thanks Delilah for comforting me when I truly needed it most, and making that moment easier on my mother. Can you please play that song again for my mom and me? Lydia
Folks, anger is not worth it. It’s not worth holding a grudge, and it’s not worth wasting precious time with people you love. You may not like someone right now, but if you still love that person deep down, make amends. No one is ever promised a tomorrow, just be aware of that before you hold grudges and waste precious time. And thank you, Lydia, for this special reminder today.
It's time to let go of the junk in your life. I'm talking about the figurative junk that fills up your head and your heart and makes it really hard to feel normal or happy. When you have junk in your life, such as a bitterness, jealously, anger or resentment, it consumes you. And when you clean it out, you can then fill the void left behind with much happier thoughts and memories.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard the story about the person who is so embittered by a bad breakup that hating the other person consumes their thoughts and practically their whole life. It’s okay to be angry, but eventually you have to allow yourself to move on from something like that or it will imprison you in a bad place. Let go of anger and resentment so you can fill that void with something positive. Don’t let someone that has hurt you continue to do so after they’re long gone.
Maybe your sweetheart isn’t that sweet to you or maybe your friend isn’t that friendly. Maybe you need to let go of the toxic people who are holding you back. Do a little spring cleaning in the social department. It’s hard to walk away from someone and let all that history go, but let’s face it, if that someone only makes you confused or upset and brings you more tears than smiles, let go and make room in your heart and in your schedule for someone deserving of you.
Let go of life’s junk. Maybe that literally means cleaning out the tangible junk in your life. Cleaning house and home or a storage closet or a bedroom can make you feel extremely accomplished. I have a big family and therefore a lot of stuff, so I have to do this often as they continue to grow, acquire new hobbies and interests…and shoes. It feels so good to clean it out and donate it! Let go of the junk and start to live a better life.
