HOW ARE YOU LOOKING AT THINGS? {Sunday Affirmations}

DrDyer_change-quotes-

It’s Sunday so you know what that means… Yep, Sunday Affirmations!  This week was tougher than normal to decide on what to share.  So much has happened this week.  I even debated just throwing my hands up and saying-  Sorry, I got nothing sistas!  Just keeping it real.  When I started dabbling in this vast world of blogging, I really had NO IDEA what the heck I was doing.  I still don’t sometimes.  The one thing I do know is that I want to help women so if there’s one silly experience or word-of-wisdom I can share that will help just one of you… then I’m cool with that and I will keep on keepin’ on.

This past week was a hair puller, teeth grinder, shoulder tenser and eye squinter.  I’m sure we all felt the collective stress our nation was under and hopefully this pressure forces you to lean into your Faith more than ever.  I had a few days last week that had me feeling like Linda Blair.  I think my head spun a few times and I felt like puking up my problems.  As I stood over the sink– Ok, who else has epiphanies while standing at the sink?— I was complaining in my head about our finances, having to do that stupid laundry and needing to start dinner.  HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE!!!   Did I allow my Negative Nellie to muzzle my Positive Polly?  She may have had a brief moment of victory, but not for long.   I stopped and said a prayer…then reminded myself of how I’m looking at things.

I read Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book, The Power of Intention, about 6-7 years ago.  One of the things that has resonated with me most about Dr. Dyer’s teachings is “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.  So, in that moment– at the sink– I thought of my trip to Africa and how many women I saw cooking outside over an open fire on the ground.  Immediately, I had overwhelming joy that I had a great gas stovetop and an amazing husband who loves my cooking.  I remembered how much I love to cook!  It’s a form of nurturing and creativity for me not just a required chore.  Plus, I was thrilled to have a washer and dryer to do laundry with instead of schlepping clothes to the laundromat like in the early days of our marriage.  Bring on the socks and underwear- I GOT THIS!  Wow, I had such a “moment” and realized the power in how we look at situations.  We have the control.  Your own happiness and peace relies on how you view your life.  It’s as simple as that.

THIS WEEK I WILL…..

  1. Realize I have control over my happiness.
  2. Change the way I look at things.
  3. Muzzle my Negative Nellie…once + for all!
  4. Enjoy the day-to-day chores I do for my family..it’s a way to show love.
  5. Do everything from a place of love.
  6. Claim my peace.
  7. Take pride in my ability to love + give to others.
  8. Live life with intention.
  9. Choose happiness.
  10. Again, change the way I look at things.
  11. COUNT MY MANY BLESSINGS!

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Hi Little Lover!

How was your weekend?  Can you believe it’s already that time again? Yes, here are your Sunday Evening Affirmations!  Every week seems to be flying by.  That’s a good reason to take some time to pause and regroup every weekend.  Now- this evening let’s all set our intention on having a successful week ahead before we ever see Monday morning’s sunrise:

I WILL…..

  1. Look in the mirror and say “I love you ____” (insert your name) at least 3 times.
  2. Plan a playdate with a genuine, like-minded girlfriend.
  3. Not skip a healthy breakfast even if it’s a protein shake on the go.
  4. Feed my faith and starve my fear.
  5. Stop taking myself so seriously.
  6. Try a new nail polish or lipgloss color.
  7. Stop making excuses and move my butt and get some exercise.
  8. Use my voice.
  9. Not compare myself to others.
  10. Allow myself a cheat day to indulge in something yummy.
  11. Always stay in peace because it gives me power.

As we wind down from the hoopla and fun of the summer swag bag giveaways, I want to thank all the sponsors once again and encourage all of you who won these great products to give us all feedback by posting on the Facebook  page and letting us all know how you liked everything.  I love doing some kind of at-home facial on Sundays and did a Beauty Sprinkles yogurt mask this morning and loved it!

NEW WEEK, NEW BEGINNING

Hey Style Sista’s!

How was your weekend? I was fortunate to spend a few fun girlie days with my precious mom and my love tank is full. Nothing like mother-daughter quality time, right! We did our fave things…shopping and eating Mexican food. We had some great convo’s which prompted me to share my thoughts on this video:

 

WHAT ARE THOUGHTS ON THIS SUBJECT?

Did it inspire you? Maybe it got you thinking about some changes you need to make? I would love to hear your thoughts.

The beauty of Sunday evenings is we have just one more sleep before the beginning of the new week. I don’t know about you, but it’s exciting to me! We get a clean slate….a brand new week to do things better. To do things bigger. To try new things. A whole seven days of new opportunities! I encourage you this week to start making a list of projects you want to dust off and work on, dreams that seem to be dead and buried and places you want to see.  I realize this is a bit of a repeat of last week’s blog post, but I believe it is vital to a woman’s livelihood.

{I’m getting out the brushes this week…if it’s the only thing I do}

Don’t forget to post + play on the SOS FACEBOOK PAGE to participate in the fabulous summer swag bag giveaways happening every week! To enter, you must be a subscriber to this blog, like the facebook page and join in on the fun convo’s.  Make sure to tell your girlfriends about it too!

With love + grace,

Tiff
