If your living space is in disarray, your mind will be in disarray. And if your mind is in disarray, your life will reflect that. Take time to organize before you work on your goals for the day. You will be amazed at how much better you feel when your living space and the space between your ears is organized and ready for action! ~ Namaste!
"Parents tend to press and mold their kids to become what they see as their own models of success. Sometimes this is subconscious on the part of the parents who failed to reach their own success goals and are projecting the urgency of attaining success onto their children. Working at your own success and providing the right examples will fulfill YOUR dream and show your children how to become successful without forcing extreme expectations on them." ~ Freda M. Chaney
"So, you're all caught up in being a social butterfly? And that takes everything you've got to stay on top? What you are doing, you are doing for others to make them like and accept you, yes? So, you have lots of friends, yes? What do they do for you? Are they always there when you need them? Or are you, more often than not, doing for them? Look, you gotta be your own best friend first! What are you doing for YOU? If the social set likes you no matter what you do for yourself, then super! They won't mind you saying "no" once in awhile! True friends can hear "no" and not freak out! Don't forget the reason why you are here! Your reason for being is not so that you can entertain everyone at your own expense!" ~ Freda
Do you do kind things for others on a regular basis? Some do. Others are so self-involved that they find little time to share with those who are not directly benefiting them on a regular basis. It is important to have priorities, but don't allow yourself to become cemented to tasks of home, or to a few choice friends whose wheels seem to squeak at every turn. Remember that there is a big world out there, and a small act of kindness from you could make a huge difference to someone in need. And paying it forward will assure that the help you offer someone now will be returned to you sometime in the future. Namaste, Freda
