Bringing The Child In You To The Surface To Love Yourself

Love Yourself Enough To Strengthen Your Power of Positive Thought


The children desire freedom! And every particle of their being from their Source says, “You are free. You are so free, that every thought you offer, the entire Universe jumps to respond to it.” And so, to take that kind of knowledge and try to confine it in any way, defies the Laws of the Universe. You must allow your children to be free, because the entire Universe is set up to accommodate that. And anything you do to the contrary will only bring you regret. You cannot contain those that cannot be contained. It defies Law.

— Abraham


Watch children play at a playground. See how they do everything effortlessly and without much fear. Children are the ultimate positive thinkers. They know what they want and they have no fear on getting exactly what they want. They haven’t learned that life throws up challenges and that there are rules and boundaries to be obeyed. They truly allow their “inner being” lead the way without even knowing it.

Life to a child is just one big adventure. They have no fears of things. They are willing are to try anything. You always see them optimistic and happy and if they aren’t it is because they don’t know why they cannot have things just they way they are meant to have it. They positively believe that everything at their reach is theirs for the taking and why not? Their “inner child” has not developed yet. So they just put themselves out there to learn and experience everything they can out of their life. Love yourself enough to let the child out to play.

The amazement that children have for life is how they learn, develop their identity and live in a positive manner. This positive manner is reinforced by the fact that they do not instantly jump to the negative in any of their given situations. They don’t know about bad only good because their parents or guardians protect them from all the bad they can. Children have a faith that we have forgotten to practice once we become adults. We dwell on the negative instead of embracing the positive. Love yourself and refocus your vibrational energy on positive things.

Have you ever had a child suddenly stop, bend down to pick a flower beside them and then excited stuff it up into your face for you to smell? Children stop “to smell the roses” – we as adults tend to just walk by.

Love yourself enough to practice the faith a child has. Slow down. Take the “to-do’s” out of your day and enjoy your journey. Enjoy the little things like a child would and you will see that the positives in your life will naturally over take your negatives.

Explore being a child for 24 hours and see how you feel and what you experience. Try the following:

Love Yourself and Ignore all rules! – Children ignore rules all the time. Although it can get them into trouble or even danger, they usually end up having so much fun because they were doing something they were not supposed to do. Defying authority can be an adrenaline rush so break a few rules and let yourself act like a kid again.

Love yourself and Do Not walk away from a challenge – watch a child face a challenge. They gather momentum at the prospect of putting the puzzle piece in the correct shaped hole. It is as if they know they will get it and so why not have fun while trying. Try to accept all your challenges in your life as a child embraces them. Feel the excitement of learning from your challenge instead of taking away only the negative. And never walk away; meet it face on and embrace and enjoy the moment.

Love yourself and Explore, Explore, Explore – all new things! – Through fear of the unknown away and walk up to it and shake its hand. Children are always exploring and this is how they learn. So explore like you never have before. Throw caution to the wind.

Love yourself and “Pretend” – Make believe you are where you have always wished to travel. Imagine you are the person you have always wanted to be – YOU. Pretending is the way children play and use their imagination. So get away from your normal life and play make believe. It is healthy for the soul and the mind. The most important thing is to have fun! – it will definitely put a smile on your face.

Love Yourself and be Happy in a messy and unrestricted way – Children love to make a mess. This is the way they have fun exploring and learning how things go in their little worlds. So if you make a mess don’t get mad at yourself play in it learn from it and most of all enjoy it!

Bring the child out in you. Watch children play. See and enjoy the carefree way they just interact with each other of find ways to entertain themselves. The difference between children and adults is that we have responsibilities – but don’t let responsibilities keep you from practicing your child like abilities, responsibilities are just excuses your inner child wants you to dwell on so you have the excuse to not be positive in your thinking. Excuses kill positive thinking. Acknowledge your responsibilities but in no way let them keep you from having fun!

“Loss” Is The Teacher Of Great Personal Growth Lessons

Look at loss in life as a source of light – a beacon that lets us know that personal growth is constantly moving forward.


personal growthIf we are alive, we cannot not experience loss along our journey of personal growth. Loss is a very real part of everyday life. As we head into mid-life we sometimes feel we are in crisis. We feel loss everywhere we turn; loss of our youth, loss of a relationship, loss of children to significant others, careers or school. We feel the loss of friendships, friends or relatives though death. Loss just circles us like buzzards over a carcass in a hot desert. We feel the silence of loss – it is so loud that it screeches at us to listen, but we tend to cover our ears. It can take a toll on our personal growth adventure- but only if we let it.


Turn the word loss around – SSOL. Amongst these letters is the word “sol” which is Spanish for “sun.” The sun represents the center of our universe. It signifies growth, warmth and guidance of light. It is a certainty in our lives that the sun will rise each morning to lead us through the day and set each night to rest the weary, only to rise once again the next morn right on schedule whether we can see it or not. This is a natural cycle personal growth strives on.


So refocus your energy on loss. Look at it a source of light – a beacon that lets us know that personal growth is constantly moving forward. Look at loss as a new opening made on  life’s shelf that is filled with golden treasures. Where the dust never fell is a space to fill with new trinkets of our journeys. Let loss be the teacher of learning to cherish life more.


Nothing slams the effects of loss into us as a sudden death. We all know that we should live life in the moment but when someone close to us suddenly dies we are shook to the core with our own mortality. We wonder if we knew then what we know now could we have prevented the loss? But going back, we find that to change the “then” is impossible and waste of energy. We are alive and should celebrate what this moment or day in our personal growth path brings. We should cherish it and not wish it away. Let the day reveal its twists and turns as an unruly monster roller – coaster because life is a mystery. With any loss this day brings, we have the choice on how to react and with that choice we have the gratitude for the “now” that is meant to happen.


Make each day in this mid-life journey count. Find one moment of joy or pleasure to taste. Call a dear friend or find a person to bestow love on. Even share a vibrant smile with someone new, but no matter what kind of day you perceive it to be, live today in your brilliance and let your personal growth shine. Allow the “sol” to guide you to a perfectly wonderful day and allow any loss to guide you into discovering what you want to fill its spot in the future. Bask in all you have in living today and each day from now on, into its fullest.


“I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.” – Walter Anderson

Courage Is The Backbone to Self-Esteem

Courage braces my self-esteem to bloom in unsettling shifts along my journey.



I asked for strength,
And God gave me difficulties to make me strong;

I asked for wisdom,

And God gave me problems to learn to solve;
I asked for prosperity,
And God gave me brain and brawn to work;
I asked for courage,
And God gave me dangers to overcome;
I asked for love,
And God gave me people to help;
I asked for favors,
And God gave me opportunities.
I received nothing I wanted – I received everything I needed.
My prayer has been answered!
(Author Unknown)


As life’s journey takes me over hills and valleys, my courage is the backbone holding my self-esteem tall while hurdling challenges and embracing the lessons that are there for me to learn. Death is the opposite to birth not the opposite to life. Life has no opposites as it is ever present. Life gives us challenges, difficulties, problems, dangers, lessons and opportunities.

Your Self-Love Level Is Controlled By You

Your Self-Love Journey -The Only Change Controlled by You is Within Yourself

self-loveA deep sense of nurturing self-love is controlled by you – “You can’t change what life deals you BUT you can change how you deal with life!” I have lived by this saying my whole life. Although it is not always easy to follow, I make a conscious effort to watch my reactions to things I come across in my journey. You cannot change anything other than changes within yourself. You cannot control others actions, decisions and behaviors. But you can change your reactions to others – a healthy sense of self-love can dictate those reactions. Your reactions to criticism, disappointment, others moods…. are decided by your choices. Your choices are influenced by what brings your life, happiness, joy, balance and love – cornerstones to self-love.

Choice is still within our power. We might think others have taken command of it but they never have. We are the captains of our choice ship and we steer the way in and out of situations by masterfully making choices the best we know how with the tools we have in our grasp to use. All choices are the correct one. Some just don’t turn out the way we hope but there are lessons in all decisions. Learn these lessons for they are valuable.  Place your choices where they belong – in the past and discover the tools you need to make the decisions you want and achieve the outcomes you desire.

Then next time a situation occurs that is not quite as wonderful as you were hoping, stop, breathe deep 3 times, stay focused in the present, put your prejudices aside and then react. You will find that your how you deal with life becomes easier and easier until the peace you find within will be the peace to radiate to others no matter what the situation is you find yourself in.

The Self-Love Act of Writng a Will

Share Your Self-Love By Writing Down Your Dreams and Desires For Your Loved Ones In A Will.

self-loveOne of the greatest gifts you can give yourself in the honor of self–love is writing your will. A gift you say? Even thinking about the contents of a will upsets people to the point that they just don’t bother. Did you know that stats show nearly 65% of adults don’t have a will? It’s a very hard stat to evaluate since it includes everyone over the age of majority and let’s face it young adults think they will live forever and don’t even consider a will till they marry and have children – if even then. It is important to write your will so that there is an orderly transfer of property and belongings from you, the testator, to your loved ones, the beneficiaries. This self-love act transfers your dreams and accomplishments on so others may benefit from your journey or incorporate it into their own life journeys.

I had to do this very act the other day – rewrite my will. It is not pleasant talking about “me” as if you no longer exist but it is imperative to contemplate and design. I believe the process to be “self-love” – able. I owe it to me and to my loved ones to be able to say now what I cannot say once I have left this physical world. This is the self-love gift I give to myself and to my loved ones. I made sure that all my assets and debts are organized in a manner that my family members do not have to be concerned with the problems of an unorganized estate.

There are intestacy laws for those that do not make a will but why leave your assets in the hands of a stranger? Why not allocate where and how everything you have acquired over your lifetime will go while you still have the opportunity to do so? You have worked so hard to have beautiful things for your family but they might not be available for them once you have passed. Why would you do that to you – who worked so hard to preserve your sacred self-love – or to your loved ones who you have made sure to provide for?

Self-love is about doing what is right for you at all times and doing good things for you that make you happy; it is about nurturing your soul and making sure that you put ‘you” first. It is about you ensuring your authenticity at all costs. Self –love is about being kind to yourself first and foremost. What better way to ensure that than by writing down all your wishes and desires to be accomplished after you have passed?

The death of a family member is something people don’t like to foresee or discuss. However, since death is inevitable, taking practical steps like making a will, secures the future of your precious family members.

Self-love is like a mirror, which reflects the love you have for yourself onto others. That love will be as deep for them as the love you have gathered within you.

Smiling Is Self-Confidence Wrapped In A Bow

Smile and See What Happens to Everyone’s Self-Confidence…..

Self confidence influences body language. Body language is the actions or movements of your body; the way you move, your stance, and facial features. Actions speak louder than words.  Body language can confirm your words or contradict them.  Without knowing so your body language will win out over your words.

When you implement positive thinking you boost your level of self-confidence and your self-confidence will implement positive body language. True commitment to positive thinking and attitude will cause your positive body language to follow, but if you are not wholeheartedly into your quest for positive thinking then your body language will give you away. Approaching others with a smile will ultimately lead to a positive experience. A smile is a self-confidence gift wrapped in pretty ribbon. Once untied it radiates positive attitude. People are more likely to want to interact with you when you have a positive attitude. Reflecting positive thinking and attitude will attract others with positive thinking and attitude.

When someone smiles it is universally known as an expression of happiness, which is recognized by almost all cultures. A smile is an easy way to reflect your inner feelings. There are over 18 different types of smiles that are used in a variety of social situations. For instance, people can use a smile to say a hello, and they can also use a different type of smile to show their understanding of a particular situation.

A fact is a frown uses more muscles to contract and expand then a smile does.

A smile is one of the most used human facial expressions. Smiles can use between 5 to all 53 muscles. Also smiling releases endorphins and makes us feel better, even when you fake a smile you can feel better.

A person that smiles more has greater self-confidence and stands out to be more pleasant, sincere, attractive and more sociable then a non-smiling person. We are born with the ability to smile; it is not something that we copy. For instance, blind babies are able to smile. It is a reaction from the gut. Humans are able to differentiate between a real smile and a fake smile by seeing the difference in person’s eyes when they smile. Newborns are  brought into this world with pure love and self-confidence and gravitate to a person with a smile than a person that is not smiling.

Smiling is the most important body language that we have. It is a neon sigh displaying our self-confidence. A smile is something precious. If you see someone upset, you should share your smile with them. It is a very inexpensive gift from your soul to the world. It is contagious – smile at a stranger and see the chain reaction.  This is the domino effect of a smile.

A smile can go a long way  - so pass it on.

Personal Growth Uses Setbacks To Climb Ahead

This Week’s  Moximized Mondays Personal Growth Topic:

The Re-framing Of Setbacks Gives Our Personal Growth a Foundation to Success. ~ Joyce


I feel like my life is just one setback after another. I can’t seem to get a break. What am I doing wrong. Why can’t I get a break? How many times have I found myself saying, “That wasn’t supposed to happen to me,” “Things aren’t working out like I thought things would,” “I wouldn’t have done that if I had known this was going to happen”? How can I stop running into roadblocks in my life’s journey? ~ Joyce



personal growthThe personal growth journey is littered with setbacks. These setbacks are to be used as stepping stones towards your goals not roadblocks. – consider looking at them as “comebacks.” The questions you ask, Joyce are repeated by everyone on this planet, I bet most people have lost count by now even if they didn’t know they did say and think these thoughts.


So take your journal and write down all the times that things have turned out differently or the opposite to how you thought you knew things would turn out.


Next write down and answer these personal growth questions about each setback to a desired goal:

How important is your goal to you?

How motivated are you to accomplish all the great things life has to offer?

Do you have a clear vision of where you’d like to go, or is it cloudy and easy to let go of when a setback/roadblock occurs?

How badly do you want your goals and ultimately success in your life?


Now focus on consciously re-framing the setback into a positive beacon letting us know we have to look for a new route towards successfully achieving our goals. Spend time with your reflections. Allow your inner being to have the voice in your personal growth journey. You will find the answers.


Setbacks encountered on our personal growth journey are just minor challenges with great lessons attached for the greater good. Look upon them as good things – uncomfortable yes – but come before us with reasons that we might not understand right away. In the human personal growth journey, we love to have the control of knowing exactly what the outcomes of our actions are going to be. We feel our personal growth depends on the security this knowledge offers us. It this keeps us in the familiar and this is a natural reaction to change for if we know the outcome to a certain situation then we have no fear, and when we avoid fear our inner child (ego) feels more secure. Whew! Anxiety abated!


BUT, staying in the familiar, Joyce, and knowing every conclusion to all the situations we find ourselves in can lead to a very boring life. Setbacks are imperative for our personal growth and involvement in life. Our attachments to expectations of certain outcomes that we define as success cause us to see instances that do not go our way as failures or setbacks. This is not necessarily so. Try to release your need for attachment to outcomes of situations you find yourself in.


Now if everything in life happened and resulted exactly the way we expect, why would we try anything new? If we were never dissatisfied with an outcome why would we explore new territory, or experiment with new ideas take a chance at doing something totally different?


Think about those reflective questions for a minute. Now go back to your list of all the outcomes that did not live up to your expectations – all the different results. Did you not venture forward and try to find a better result with a different approach? This is re-framing your setback. Consider every outcome your new opportunity. Remember it is said that when one door closes another will open. Recall all the times when you let the frustration of a disastrous moment increase only to find it was snuffed out just as quickly when a new opportunity presented itself in front of you.


So let’s take the quote from Richard Bach, the author of the wonderful book Jonathan Living Seagull, and accept any “end of the world” situation as our butterfly. It could be a lost client that may be making space for the client you have truly desired in your life purpose: The apartment that was leased when you called, only to find on the next page of the classifieds a new ad for the perfect place in the perfect location – AND more affordable or possibly the problem with a relationship that offers you a chance to separate and journey forward in better directions.


A simple re-frame of any situation that doesn’t turn out the way you thought or wished it would into a comeback, can have incredible power over how we perceive our circumstances. Re-framing our setbacks into “positive must-have situations to learn from” raises our vibration and we will attract what we really desire.  Nothing that happens to us is the end of the world, just a stepping-stone to a new direction. So Joyce, choose to see the butterfly, NOT to see the “end of your life” with a simple setback.


“What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, we call a butterfly”  -Richard Bach

Self Love Rules For Crafting Your Creativity – Part One

Channeling Your Creativity Highway – building a greater sense of self love.


self loveTraveling along  your self love journey you are inundated with ideas, like bugs on a windshield  to be created into the physical medium of your choice. Everyone was born to create, we are creative beings. If you have ever looked at someone’s work of art and said to yourself, “I could never do that,” you are wrong.  All you have to do is open your mind and leave self-judgment at the door. Show up to any creative medium;paper, canvass, pottery wheel or what ever you desire and let the ideas flow through you and create.

Below are some handy rules for you to follow to help get you on your way to creating exactly what you wish to. Nurture your self love with giving your creativity a place to flourish.






Self Love Driving Rules For Discovering Your Creativity:


1.You are the vessel for the Divine Source’s creativity to come to life. Create a comfortable, loving and happy “creation” space – look upon this as you would choosing the perfect car you would like to drive in for a long trip. Enrich your self love and deep breathe 5 times allowing the creative light to energize your soul from the top of your head down through your limbs towards your feet. With you feet plated firmly on the grown visualize this creative energy flowing in and down with each breath in, and pushing down and through your feet into mother earth with each breath out. After feeling firmly grounded, take any medium you desire and place upon it the creative ideas that are sent through you.


2.Be open to the ideas that travel through you. Cast no judgment, for the creative ideas that channel through you are not your to own but are given to you to foster and nurture to the best of your ability. The Creator has chosen you because your self love qualities are perfect for the mission of “creating” here on earth. Be proud and celebrate everything you create – each creation has its own purpose even if you can’t see that purpose immediately.


3. In order to become the perfect well of the vast ideas that you are meant to create with, you must nurture your self love. Exercise the mind, body and soul. Meditate, visualize, commune with nature, surround yourself with creative people, create an environment that brings comfort, eat well, sleep lots and breathe often. Keep your spirituality open to receive all messages and energy you are meant to receive. Try new activities, hobbies, and classes that sound fun. Write down things that you would never do but if you could, you might like to try because they seem like so much fun. Discover if there are any skills you would still like to master while you can. Reflect on your child hood, or watching children at whimsical play. Be silly for five minutes and explore all you could to challenge yourself to do in the make-believe “silly” world.


4.Remember there are 525,600 minutes in a year. Each minute is an achievement on its own no matter what was accomplished in this time frame. Create conscious small steps to achieving each self love goal. Think of them a “turtle’ steps instead of “baby’ steps. With baby steps you run the risk of wanting to run before you walk. Sometimes your little steps get caught up unto one another and you stumble before you really get going. The turtle travels slow and steady. You have to stick your neck out in order to navigate your journey but you finally get to your goal with strength and confidence.


5.ASK for what you want in your creative sessions. Accept no boundaries to enriching your creative self love. Accept no negative self-talk. Accept no judgments whether from yourself or others. Imagine no money issue, no gender issues, age issues and no political/religious issues. Your imagination is your only limit – can you imagine? Nothing is too grand for the Universe to entertain, but the laws of attraction cannot work without you invoking the “ASK.” Let your authentic voice be heard. Feel the blush rise up your throat and shine on your cheeks, for now you know you are stretching yourself to grow.  Develop concrete intentions for your creativity and affirm that you will do the best job you can do with the ideas that come to you. You don’t need to know the “how” they come, just that when it is right you will do your creating the best way possible. You will give each idea the best quality that you are qualified to give. Pledge allegiance to your creative soul for it is a master all on its own whether anyone else recognizes it or not. Don’t worry about knowing what that quality is – just promise to give it and it will form naturally.

When Are Opinions A Sign Of Self Esteem?

Moximize Monday Self Esteem Topic For This Week:

Your Requested Opinions Are Self Esteem Gifts Of Your Expertise ~ Heather


I have so much to say at home and at work. I am educated and read a great deal. When I am asked for my opinion and try to offer it,  I am dismissed or interrupted or ignored. Why do people ask if they are not interested in hearing the answer? am I too opinionated? Should I just decline giving my opinion when it is asked for next time? ~ Heather?


Opinions given out like candy are can be misunderstood for arrogance not a sign of healthy self esteem. When others request your opinion it is a gift from you to them – so share it. If they can’t handle it that is a problem with their self esteem not yours. Many people only ask for an opinion if they believe that the answer they receive will be the one they desire, NOT the one that needs to be verbalized.

Stand tall in your self esteem, Heather and be proud of what you know and have learned. If your opinion is sought, speak up proudly and stay in your power. Your requested opinion is a gift of your expertise – no matter what that expertise is – and go ahead and give it. By not, you are robbing them of valuable knowledge that you have to share and by which they may learn from. Generally, you are asked for an opinion because your insight and point of view are valued. By sharing opinions you connect intellectually and spiritually. Sharing your expertise is spreading self esteem. Knowledge is empowering. This is all a part of learning. You both want to take something away from the expertise offered. If you are asked and then dismiss giving them an answer then you are not only not validating yourself, but you are also not validating the person requesting your gift.

Feel pride and confidence when asked for your input – you would not have been asked if you were not considered and expert on the subject. Where your expertise with pride – embrace it whether it is big or small; it is important to someone. Stay true to your expertise even when your opinion might not match the answer requested.

Heather, opinions not based on expertise and given when not asked can be hurtful not insightful. They are not fulled by self esteem but by ego. No one likes an opinionated person when those opinions come from an arrogant need to be right and important. It is the voice of your inner child not your inner being taking charge. Avoid these situations and consciously commit to  answer with opinions coming from your self esteem full of love and light.
