“We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are.”     Marjorie Hinckley by barbra

This is a simple but critical lesson to learn. When stress levels rise, when distress appears, when tragedy strikes, too often we attempt to keep up the same frantic pace or even accelerate, thinking somehow that the more rushed our pace, the better off we will be. If life and its rushed pace and many stresses have made it difficult for you to feel like rejoicing, then perhaps now is a good time to refocus on what matters most. ~Dieter F. by lila

“Sometimes we feel that the busier we are, the more important we are—as though our busyness defines our worth. We can spend a lifetime whirling about at a feverish pace, checking off list after list of things that in the end really don’t matter. That we do a lot may not be so important. That we focus the energy of our minds, our hearts, and our souls on those things of eternal significance—that is essential.” –Joseph B. Wirthlin by red_birdie

When we awaken to what we are within, we can no longer be deceived by what we have been told all our lives. We then understand that we can change each thought, each choice and each action one at a time and this will change our lives.    We can overcome obstacles once we own the power of our thoughts and no one can have any say in this except for ourselves...It all begins with our thoughts, so if we can master our mind, we can master our lives as by 6leewei

These are the main chemicals in our bodies that control everything from our emotions to how we respond to certain situations. They don't rule out lives if we use our higher brain to think about how we're feeling and why and then make the right choice no matter what we're feeling. We also need to have these levels evaluated to stay balanced. by marissa

"Creativity is subtraction" by Austin Kleon: What does this mean? -  "One, getting really good at creative work requires a lot of time and attention, and that means cutting a lot of fluff out of your life so that you have that extra time and attention. Creativity in our work is often a matter of what we choose to leave out, rather than leave in—what is unspoken vs. spoken, what isn’t shown vs. what is, etc." #Creativity by proteamundi

Yamas are instructions for living well... instead of being strict rules, they invite us to decide for ourselves the specific applications to how we live. “Ahimsa” is an important consideration when we examine our habits in relationship to other people. We want to cultivate compassion and love for when we interact with others. But further, we want to think about the impacts that our words, actions, and purchases have on other beings. #ahimsa #yoga #yamas #nonviolence by Eggnog

Yes ★ Women need affection and your time. We like to talk about our day and vent on whatever our pretty little minds have stored in there. Basically we need a best friend that loves to listen to us and that will still do all the dirty little things that we need to fulfill our carnal desires..... The communication is the MOST important part to make it all work together.... by joyce

At two years old Taylor began dancing and even then she had determination and embraced new challenges. “I have always loved trying to create exact positions with my body and I have always needed to move a lot and with much freedom,” she said. “I think I found ballet to be more of a challenge than other forms of dance that I took classes in, but that’s what I liked about it.” by ellen

“…he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6, NIV) Sometimes when God is doing a work in our lives, it can begin to feel a little uncomfortable. We may encounter people who are hard to get along with or have circumstances that seem beyond our control. When this happens, instead of complaining, getting sour or trying to change everything around you, why don’t you look deep inside and say, “Lord, thank You for doing a work in me.” See, I’ve learned that God is more interested in changing me than He is in changing my circumstances. If I choose to stay sour because I’m not getting my way or discouraged because things aren’t happening on my time table, that’s going to keep me right where I am. If you want to see change, if you want to see God open up new doors, the key is to bloom right where you’re planted. You can’t wait until everything gets better before you decide to have a good attitude. You have to be the best that you can be right where you are. When you bloom where you’re planted, you’re allowing God to work in you, and He will be faithful to complete what He’s started in you! by sadie jones

Medicine Wheel The significance of the medicine wheel is one that goes back to the beginning. The medicine wheel connects an understanding of every aspect of ourselves and our lives... Each direction has a individual spirit that helps us know what is there. There being our future, our past and our present. With the spirits of that direction brings us to a knowing and helps us when we are in need, or appreciating what we have... It's all there, all for us to have, if we are willing to accept it. by angelique

If we don't look at where we're dishonest, harsh, unforgiving, disrespectful, greedy, domineering, and so on, then we cannot change that thing. If we just suppress our shadow, trying to disown it, then it exists as an unintegrated fractal of our personality. And we have no power over what we have not explored. - Marianne Williamson, The Shadow Effect by Shana_Shelia

When we are given unconditional love, it is something to be treasured, it is a rare gift that is given from one soul to another, see the true value of what it is you possess and never again would you ever feel the need to be lonely, when we realize that this gift we have is actually right in front of us, our lives change dramatically from lack to great abundance. by Gypsygirl68

“If a man is unmarried, he is called a bachelor. If a woman is unmarried, she is called a spinster or an old maid. What is it about an unmarried woman that poses such a threat to the patriarchal order? Mainly, it is that women are no one's property when we're unmarried. We're under no one's control, and neither are our children. There is no telling what we might do or say.” ― Marianne Williamson, A Woman's Worth Art: “St. Ishtar/Innana” by TerezBellydance by louisa
