How To Love Life Again!

Who hasn’t even for a brief moment, thought that you were so sad, that you would never be happy again?

We all have been there, whether because of a heartbroken, a loved one that passed on, or an unexpected health problem, we just lost all perspective. It seemed that we reached the end of the line, and we didn’t.

Somehow we overcame.

What I can tell you, from my personal experience, is that we go through several phases, from numbness, total disbelieve, to a sense of just surviving, just existing, not experiencing life with all of your heart and soul. Until my daughter was born, it felt like I had this black, empty hole in my heart. My daughter brought me to life again.

I had this amazing being that I was totally responsible for… There was this purpose, my life had a purpose, and the good side of life started to unfold!

The message that I would like you to retain is that, even if you are, at this point of your life, experiencing a hard challenge, just push it through, find professional help, if you feel that you need the right tools to move on, but make sure that it’s a certain fact that you will be happy again, you will smile again!

You are able to overcome everything!

There is always a way out!

There is always a burst of beautiful sunshine after a storm, just hang in there, you will make it!

You deserve a beautiful, amazing life!

You are worth it!

How to Deal with Forgiving

They say that forgiving is a selfless act, that you have a big heart and that you’re able to forgive and move on with your life.

I don’t know about you, but I had a hard time when it comes to forgiving someone that actually hurt me and had no remorse about it! It was something that was constantly weighing on my mind, that frustration, how dare they to move on with their lives and be happy after being so mean to me?

Then I read something that made total sense to me, and it changes my mind and I finally moved on!

Just so you know, I do have a good heart, just like you, but I deserve to put myself first and well as my happiness, and so do you!

This is how I deal with forgiving:

First of all, I realised that I was the one that was keeping these people that hurt me still in my life! Just by having that frustration regarding them, just by thinking that life was being unfair, after all, they were living happily, and I was irritated. That had to change!

How could I just let go it go an move on with my life?

This so easy, and it really works: Learn to forgive them in order to let them go!

This is not a selfless act, this is a purging act!

To forgive, in my perception, it means to be able to have no feelings regarding those that hurt you! This requires some work, but it’s totally achievable. Value yourself more, put yourself in a higher state of mind, look at the big picture, and as soon as you begin to have any kind of negative feelings, make sure to immediately focus on something positive about your life!

We are the ones that decide who gets to be by our side in this amazing journey!

Of course, there will be disappointments, people will fail us, just be wise enough to understand that it’s not you who has a problem, that they didn’t do this to you, they do this to everybody, it’s their lack of character, not yours!

You are a good person, with a good heart, that has the ability to understand that you are better off without that kind of people in your life!

Do this for you, because you deserve the best, and that includes the best people, so just forgive and let go!

No hard feelings, no remorse, make yourself a priority and enjoy this amazing life!

Create your Tribe

We don’t choose our blood family, that is a given fact. How we relate with each other within the family, it’s a totally different story.

If you have that amazing kind of relationship with all of your family members, when you all have each other’s back, I congratulate you!

If you don’t, welcome to the group.

My daughter and I have that connection, and it’s amazing but that was it. So we created our own tribe, our (no blood-related) family!

If you are feeling that there is no connection with your blood family, it ‘s time for you to take action and do something positive about it.

This is how we did it.

1.Mindset

This is the first step. Understand that you can change the current situation, you have the ability to change that feeling of loneliness, of not being protected, into a mindset of knowing how to handle your blood-related family, and focusing on finding you’re own tribe.

2. Take action 

Among your friends, have the wisdom to separate the ones that like you, but aren’t too thrilled when you accomplish something positive. Or the ones that like to make a joke about someone else, with no regard what so ever about people’s feelings.

Keep close to your heart that group of friends that never left you when you were feeling down or going through a hard time. The numbers will be small, but those are your friends for life!

3. Nurture relationships

Be humble to acknowledge that, looking back, you might have left some good friends behind. Take the initiative to reach out to them, their friendship is too precious to be wasted.

Nurturer your relationships, create new bonds with people that have the same priorities in life! True friendship, being there for each other first and far most, creating memories, stories, creating a long life tribe!

My tribe is small, but believe, they are my wonderful family!

Don’t you ever give up on your happiness, there is always a way. Fight for it, change it, get out of your comfort zone, and make your happiness your priority! You got this!

Thank you for meeting me halfway.

Why are you looking back? The rainbow is just ahead!

Today I dare you!

I dare you to get up and face one of your fears. Just a small one.

Don’t over think, just acknowledge it, positive mindset, focused on that goal and go!

Once you overcome that fear, you will realize that you can do anything, and that is an amazing feeling!

Even if you don’t make it at first, keep going, keep trying, focus even more, and you will make it!

Be sure of this: the rainbow is just ahead of you!

Thank you for meeting me halfway.

Learn How to Let Go

When experiencing a reality that is just not happening the way that we anticipated, we find it hard to accept and just move on with our lives. Instead, we hold on to all the negative emotions and frustrations around it, and we feel stuck.

We lose perspective. We need to let go of the past in order to start over and have new beginnings.

Once you let go of that numbness, self-pity state, you’ll gain this amazing power of changing your path into a new beautiful direction. So, why do you keep on looking back when the rainbow is just ahead of you?

We want to move on, but sometimes we don’t even know how.

Well, here are some tips to guide you:

1.Stop resisting

This is the first step that you must set into our mind in order to move on. Accept your reality. It is happing, period.

There mustn’t be any emotion attached to your current reality, no negativity, nothing. From this point on it’s a neutral reality.

Don’t resist, accept it.

2. Focus

Now that you acknowledge your current situation and you’re no longer being clouded by all the negativity around it, you can finally look at it and take action!

It’s time to look at this current state as new opportunities, new beginnings. It’s time for you to focus on what you want.

Make a plan. Write down all the steps you want to make to change that area of your life. Stay focused, be resilient, be consistent, you can achieve whatever you want, work for it.

How to increase your Self-Esteem

When we have a setback in our lives, either emotionally or professionally it takes a tow in our being. We can’t help but question our decisions, our beliefs, it shakes us. We cry, and it’s okay to cry, we are acknowledging and processing our feelings and that is actually a good thing because then we can move on, with no anxiety or frustration weighting on us.

Next step is moving on with our lives!

Regain confidence and conquer your happiness!

How? Changing!

So, to boost your self-esteem, and make you conquer all your goals and dreams, this is what you should do:

1.Think positive

First and the most important thing to do is to change your mindset. A positive mind is a peaceful mind. You are capable to achieve anything that your mindsets you to do, you can do it! You are important, you matter and you deserve all the good things that life has to offer. You have the ability to be focused, resilient and positive! You have the ability to achieve your goals without hurting or stepping on anyone else.

2. Learn to say “no”

Learn to say “no” without feeling guilty about it. Sometimes people tend to say “yes” to everything others ask, even when it’s harmful to themselves. They have this big urge to please others in order to be accepted. You don’t have to prove yourself to others.

You matter you deserve to be treated with the same respect that you give to others. You are as worthy as everybody else. You only allow in your life what is good, positive, and worthy.

3. Have it your own way

Don’t compare other people’s lives to yours. Be in harmony with yourself, find your purpose, your place and focus on your goals.

Everybody has their own path, focus on yours and how to achieve it.

What other people think about you is irrelevant and make sure the only people that matter in your life are the ones that are there for you all along, not questioning you, just supporting you all the way!

4. Broom yourself

Take the time to create routines and take care of yourself. When we shower in the morning, choose nice clothes, put on some make-up, even if your a man, put some nice hydrant cream after shaving! After pampering ourselves we feel motivated, ready for an amazing day, for new challenges! It boosts our confidence.

5. Follow your intuition

If you think about, you’ll realize that, along this amazing journey, you felt instantly drawn to a certain path, something inside was just screaming to go that way, right? That was your intuition.

Start to trust yourself more, gain confidence in your analyses, interpretations, resolutions, knowledgeable, and follow your intuition, because it will lead you through your life goals.

Be consistent in every step, be resilient, overcome the obstacles, the setbacks, keep positive. You’ve got this!

What your child should know before starting School

Where we live, children start going to school at the age of 6, and that is when they start to learn how to read and write.

When my daughter turned 6, everybody (me included), started to talk about it!

I was so excited about this new milestone in her life, that I forgot the essential, explain the whole process. The result? When she returned home from her first day at school, she was so disappointed, why? She thought she was going to learn how to read and write on that day! Of course, only then I realized that I had to make a plan to prepare my sweet child to school.

So, here are some tips that helped me to get everything back on track! I hope it will make this process easier for you.

1. Learning is an ongoing process

It is important to explain to our children that their lives are going to change, for the better, that they are going to school every day of the week, and they are going to learn step-by-step how to read and write. It is a process, it takes time, but it is so worth it.

2. Behavior

Although they already know from kinder garden, when it is time to play and when it is time to sit down, be quiet, it is important for them to create this habit, so that they are able to behave properly, to be focused and get better learning results.

3. Study habit

It’s very important to create study habits. You are creating your children’s minds into a very important living habit. Throughout their student’s lives, they will already have that mindset, that habit that will re-enforce what they learned during that they, and it will make their life so much easier.

4. Adjust weekly schedules

My daughter was having 3 swimming lessons per week before school started. Her school started at 8.30 a.m. and finished at 3:30 p.m. With homework that she had every day, the swimming lessons were no longer bringing her joy. She was tired. So, we change the swimming lessons for the weekend and it worked! The extra school activities are very important in our children’s lives, but it can be overwhelming sometimes. We just have to re-adjust

5. Constant positive re-enforcement

This is very important. Giving school, the whole learning process a positive experience. Showing them the importance of knowledge, the impact on their daily lives, and where it can take them.

I hope these tips helped you.
