How Original do YOU feel?

Just like your finger print, there isn’t another finger print like yours out there, never has and never will be.

With all the media of stars doing this, wearing this, eating this, drinking that, and popping this pill……do you find yourself more app to do those things? There is a reason celebritiesĀ in Hollywood endorse products…..our egos deep down want to be ‘like’ them. And we feel if we had/did the things they do, that we are one step closer to them. Maybe? Am I stretching it with that idea?

We have sooo much power within us that WE are original. So. Why try to be like anyone else? Emulating others in any regard is taking yourself farther away from your true self. Now. Yes, if you see something you like, I’m not saying that isn’t you. But. There is a ‘hype’ of having this or that, because your favorite celebrities/athlete has it. Not to mention there is often a heavy price tag to emulate our favorite celebrities. Harness your own brand, because you are your own brand. Be proud to do, be, wear what makes you YOU!

I know I have flipped through a fashion or tabloid magazine and thought, “what were they thinking wearing that?!!?” Reality is, they aren’t dressing for me, they are dressing for them. If they left the house being their true self, who am I to judge what they wear. Same thing with having a companion wanting/not wanting you to wear certain things, or, have your hair a certain way. There is one thing to ‘appease’ others, but, how far away from your true self are you willing to go to get the approval of others?

I sometimes say, when shopping with friends, you have to throw out those ‘rules of fashion’, because. 1st: aren’t rules meant to be broken? šŸ˜‰ Ā and 2nd: Fashion changes as quickly as the seasons do, and that isn’t a pun!

So. Bottom line, if you see someone that you are questioning their choices….stop. Be You! Let others be who they want to be! If you feel like you have let the ideas of others/media steer you in a direction that isn’t you, time to take a hold of the wheel.

Remember that we came into the world with nothing, and we leave with nothing. (as much as I want to take ALL my shoes with me…)

Mix things. Shake things. Create things. Color outside the lines. Break social standards.

Being your true self will only radiate yourself, your soul, your purpose. Lets radiate! And! Lets let others radiate without questioning their choices! Practice the art of just being!

What does 2015 mean to you?

For me, it means:

*Fresh Start

*New Goals

*New Ideas

*Leaving the Past in the Past

*Working on Becoming the Ultimate ME!

*Oh, yah….Finally getting to my Goal Weight! šŸ˜‰

With all these fresh new ideas, they will take a some time to actually acknowledge them through out the day…mmmm….who knew?! Needless to say… with these grand ideas that we put out on a whim…well…..their success rate may be low. It certainly takes more than a whim or a last minute idea for something to grow. With any change, you are planting a seed. These seeds are ‘small’ in relationship to what it takes to grow these seeds, Sun and water. That is Sun and water EVERYDAY! Just like a plant, with these new changes in place, in the beginning you are young and fragile. Over time, you’ll have deep roots, a substantial core, and a lively growth. Reaping all it’s given: Sun and Water. When you think about what it takes to get a plant going, and if you have ever nursed a plant back to health, you will know, you treat it with extra special love and care. This goes the same for you. We need extra love and care for making these decisions. After all, these new changes are our ‘babies’.

With the passing of 2014, I took time to write out ALL the items I was leaving in 2014. This was a list I didn’t take lightly. Not only did I write what I was letting go, but, why I was thankful for letting each go. How did I learn from those items? After all, it’s all about learning and you certainly cannot move forward without being grateful for those items, even the not so great ones. Then I wrote ALL the items that I was creating a space for in 2015.

Writing this, it’s 13 days into the new year, and I had let myself ‘lapse’ a bit on day 10. I know that I wasn’t taking the time to affirm my changes like I had in the prior 10 days. I was starting to listen to those voices in my head saying, ‘hey, it’s ok…I’m just a corn chip…have a couple….’, They key with falling down is getting back up and recommitting to why you started the change in the 1st place. I wasn’t giving those changes the Sun and water it needed to grow.

New changes mean you need to create a space that was once filled by something else. Take time to continue to free up that space for your hopes and dreams. It just needs a space. Remember that two things cannot occupy one space. Choose which do you want 2014 or 2015?!

Be KIND to your ‘new’ you! Keep that water and Sun on it in full force everyday!

A great quote:Ā “Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World.Ā – Christopher Columbus

Remember that every morning is a new day. Keep the momentum going on the ‘new’ you!

Some thoughts that always gets me thinking how great we are as humans:

*We are made of the same elements are the stars

*We are not solid. You can shave off any piece of our beings, and look under a microscope and see atoms moving.
