We go through life being led by what we hear. Messages others have told us about who we are, and what we have told ourselves. Our life circumstances are the sum total of what we believe. Would you trust yourself to be your caregiver? I won’t be gauche when I ask, what bs are you feeding yourself about you, I’m referring to “bad stuff”, not what you think! If you were receiving the negative messages you say about yourself, would it not be gaslighting if it were coming from someone else? Self-sabotage and the imposter syndrome are our enemies and they both must be put to rest once and for all!

We have been through quite an ordeal! Life has happened to all of us. From the beginning we are thrust into the world through the birth canal naked, screaming, cold, and hungry, sometimes even in duress. We grow up to face love, rejection, happiness, unfulfillment, peace, and uncertainty. We have all experienced the whole gamut of life, survival, thriving, and everything in between. There have been wars, rumors of wars, fires, floods, earthquakes, mass shootings, societal unrest, and the list goes on. So, it is safe to say that we could all use a little grace.

The last thing we need are negative thoughts and feelings related to ourselves. We must ensure we get the bs “bad stuff” out of our lives. We want to be successful, but too often it costs our health, sanity, family unit, and/or our happiness and this is not necessary. Here’s how you live the life of Power, Peace, and Happiness.

  • Understand first that you are valuable, sit in that and embrace it, be aware of your value daily.

  • Believe in hope no matter what things look like

  • Use positive affirmations consistently.

  • Whatever you dislike about you, work to change it

  • You can choose to be joyful or powerless...choose joy

  • Don’t pour into people who leave you empty

  • Stop procrastinating

  • Show up for you and others as your authentic self

  • No is a huge word that is twofold. The word no sets boundaries. It is not being mean or not showing love, it is quite the opposite, “I am saying no because I love you and I love myself”. No is also an acronym that stands for New Opportunities.

  • Weaknesses are not a life sentence. You have the ability to learn, grow and expand. You did not always know or master the skill set that you have today so be open to building on your weaknesses and accepting the things you cannot change about you.

You have made it to this point in your life for a reason. You have a purpose to fulfill so get out of your head and into your life! You are worthy and the world is waiting for you!
