“What runs the engine of your life? Be sure to fuel life choices that value and honor you.” Nina  Sidell

How do you feel about yourself? Are you aware of the specialness about you and what you deserve?

No matter your lot in life, the situations, career positions, relationships, desires and ultimate happiness directly relate to your real, true, deep opinion of yourself. It is not your fault if circumstances have challenged or failed you. It is the way in which you handle and respond to all circumstances that defines you. In many ways, your outer life reflects your inner life. It is a tall order to reflect so self-honestly, yet reflection while being truthful and open to new learning is always a useful and meaningful practice.

You must be courageous to be self-aware. Learning to improve your self-worth and act in self-loving ways is possible at any age.

When you truly love and honor yourself you know it. When you don’t, you know that too.

Here are some guidelines for ways to improve your self-worth today:

  • Having high self-regard and treating yourself in loving ways in all you do is not bragging or being arrogant.
  • It is not selfish to take care of yourself and know that you deserve care. That is called, “Healthy Selfishness”.
  • Notice your “Self-talk” or “Internal Dialogue”.
  • Keep track of the negative and positive thoughts and messages that run through your brain daily.
  • Create a plan to substitute your negative “Self-Talk” with positive “Self-Talk”.
  • Reinforce yourself with healthy acknowledgements as you grow your Self-Praise to Self-Criticism Ratio.
  • Learn how to be self-compassionate when life feels challenging, difficult, or overwhelming.
  • Write a personal affirmation using your name, in present time, with ideal practices and feelings that nurtures and empowers you.
  • Be sure that your affirmation is reasonable and believable and use only positive words and phrases.
  • Read your affirmation at least twice a day out loud and preferably while looking into a mirror.
  • Choose to be around people who support you with whom you feel “comfortable, safe, and at home”.
  • When communicating your wants and needs with others, do so with confidence and clarity.
  • Treat others with the same love and respect as you treat yourself and want to be treated.
  • Begin to notice how your life improves when you consciously and consistently treat yourself with the love you deserve.

Choose to elevate your understanding of who you are and what you deserve in life. You always have the opportunity to look inside and shine brightly!

“Once you stop learning, you start dying.” Albert Einstein This true statement begs us to open our minds to more.

No matter your age you are here to love and learn. The lessons in love and the process of deepening knowledge and ideas are vital. Human development spans a lifetime and cannot be stilted or compartmentalized with a begin and end time when it comes to presence, knowledge and learning.

Do you want to live as a lifetime learner? If so, put your mind, heart, and soul into that journey. You will find many beautiful and difficult lessons that impact the quality and meaning of your life. You will be inspired and you will inspire the lives of those around you. The trickle effect of a positive mental attitude is powerful and can improve lives.

Here are some ideas for you as a Lifetime Learner:

  • Explore the belief that you are here to Love and to Learn.
  • Say, “Yes!” to Life and all of Life’s lessons.
  • Be mindful of your Self-Talk and improve it if necessary.
  • Your curiosity exceeds your complacency.
  • You find the Journey of Life exciting and interesting with endless growth opportunities.
  • You see challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.

How do you feel day-to-day and year-to-year? When you stop, look and listen to the world around you, what makes you feel content, safe and secure?

It is documented that many diseases stem from stress and we need to find ways to create positive change in the world and within ourselves to avoid that.  Continue Reading…

When was the last time that you felt deeply loved? Do you give to yourself in a way that demonstrates love and honor for who you are, how you feel, and what you need? Do you want to attract and manifest a partner, soul mate or companion where true love is present and abundant? The way you love yourself inwardly is directly related to the outer manifestation of love.

You attract, accept and tolerate what you think you deserve. There may be conscious or subconscious roots behind how you treat yourself, what you think you deserve; and both reflect your self-worth. You take care of yourself and hurt yourself, get involved in loving and difficult relationships, or avoid romantic relationships all together. How can you manifest your heart’s desires?
