Words are Powerful & Should Be Used Wisely

Be (B)eautiful: “Tell me what you brag about and I’ll tell you what you lack.” ~Spanish Proverb Be (A)uthentic: It is not about what you say that affects someone, its how you choose to say it to them. Something that is not so nice can sound a million times better if you take the extra second to think before you talk. #lessonlearned Be (D)etermined: The reason why they say “talk is cheap” is because everyone and their momma can talk about doing something, but not many will take action to back up their words. Less talk, more action. Simple enough, right? x♥

Words to Live By

Dream More Complain Less Listen More ‘ Talk Less Love More Argue Less Hope More Fear Less Relax More Worry Less Believe More Doubt Less Play More Work Less I bought this portrait over the weekend because not only is it cute, but it is a great daily reminder to focus more of my energy on the bigger picture. It is so easy for us to get caught up in the negative parts of  our lives that we forget to embrace all the positive, happy things we have going for ourselves. I think if we tried to live more of our days by these words we could all be a lot happier. So let’s start TODAY. Who is with me?!

Memo for Monday.

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” ~ Maya Angelou I hope Monday is ready for this ass whoopin its going to get from all of us. 😉 xxo

Spring Trends, Life Decisions & Motivation.

Be (B)eautiful: Color blocking is a HUGE trend right now. The easiest way to copy this trend without looking crazy is to match your colors up. Find different colors that complement one another.  I stumbled upon this blogger, Hallie, and got so inspired by her outfit. Be (A)uthentic: You ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach when you are trying to make a decision about something? That gut feeling? How many of you follow it? Be (D)etermined: Whatever you want in life, start today. Do it now, not tomorrow . Let it be a small beginning – a tiny beginning. Your happiness depends on starting today, every day. “Achievement seems to be connected with action. Successful men and women keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don’t quit.” – Conrad Hilton

Be (B)eautiful: Sometimes we need that little reminder of just how much we rock! Be (A)uthentic: This is the effin’  TRUTH; stop controlling, judging and seeking approval: “If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.” ~Deepak Chopra Be (D)etermined: Make a little extra effort every day. This could mean waking up 10 minutes earlier to style your hair in the am, listening to your iPod and just zoning out, walking instead of taking the train to get some exercise in, or wearing colorful fun underwear to brighten up a gloomy day. Make it a point to always do something for yourself EACH and EVERY day. It doesn’t have to be a huge ordeal, but it should make you feel good.

Your thoughts create your reality so keep them positive or else…

Be (B)eautiful: “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” ~ Audrey Hepburn Be (A)uthentic: Does Life Just Happen to You? {Excellent read to get you Inspired} Be (D)etermined: It does not matter what your circumstances are at the present moment. Think positively, expect only favorable results and situations, and circumstances will change accordingly. It may take some time for the changes to take place, but eventually they do. WORD UP. “If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.” -Lao Tzu

“Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.” ~Lillian Dickson

Be (B)eautiful: I strongly believe that the day you stop dreaming is the day you stop living. Be (A)uthentic: I absolutely love this article:  10 Ways to Be the Person You Wanted to Be as a Kid Be (D)etermined: If you aren’t happy with your outfit you change it. If going to a club isn’t your ideal Friday night then you make other plans. So what do you do when your current relationship isn’t what you want? You make a change that’s what! Evaluate your relationship. Is it you, your partner or your current situation that is making things difficult? Figure it out and fix it. Approach relationships the same way you handle everyday life. If it’s not making you happy, is it really worth it?
