Life is Like a Rainbow

“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.”

I have a confession to make. Yes, I get down, I get sad, I get upset too. I’m no saint, nor do I want to be one. I’m human and accept my emotions as they flow through me. But I also know how to guide myself out of the sadness and into the light.

Here is how I do it: Continue reading

7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU

7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU - Positive Provocations“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Being Beautifully YOU means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some  it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME. Continue reading

Believe this ~ You ARE loved….constantly

Believe this ~ You ARE loved….constantly. Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~ RUMI“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ RUMI

When it comes to understanding love, we all have different notions of what love is. Today I will attempt to help you understand, how love heals you, motivates you, inspires you and makes you truly come alive.

Positive Ways to Cultivate Self Love for Limitless Happiness ~ Happy Valentine’s Month!

Positive Ways to Cultivate Self Love for Limitless Happiness ~ Happy Valentine's Month! Self Love“My primary relationship is with myself – all others are mirrors of it. As I learn to love myself, I automatically receive the love and appreciation that I desire from others. If I am committed to myself and to living my truth, I will attract others with equal commitment.”~Shakti Gawain

While we all know and agree that Self Love is the ONLY force that can make us whole and healed, we still struggle with it. In a recent workshop on Self love, while discussing the merits of it, a kind gentleman asked, “But I think self love is just too self indulgent and narcissistic! How can I think of myself when I have so many responsibilities towards my family and loved ones? Shouldn’t I be thinking of them first before my own needs?” ~ I smiled at him and said, “How can you fully serve your loved ones and make them happy, when you are not happy yourself? If you are having a shitty day, will you go home and be loving to your family or be moody?” He said, “Ofcourse, I’ll be moody! I have to vent at some point.” I responded, “Is that fair to your family? If you love yourself, you will NOT allow yourself to be sucked into a shitty day. You will give yourself the gift of calming down and being happy no matter what kind of day you are having, because you know YOU are worth it. Anger, irritations, shitty days etc won’t trouble your inner happiness. And then when you go home, how will you be with your family?” At this point I could see his eyes soften and he said, “I will be loving and kind……..I understand now…. that Self Love is NOT self indulgent or narcissistic…it is actually nurturing to me and all those around me too. Thank you!!!”

Now the BIG Question we all face from time to time is  ~ “How do we cultivate this self love for limitless happiness everyday?” The answer to this question is simple and oh so doable! I do it everyday and so do so many others.

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year“Stress is not what happens to us. It’s our response to what happens and response is something we can choose.” ~ Maureen Killoran

HAPPY NEW YEAR DARLINGS :)

A New Year means a new dawn. A new beginning. Are you coming into this glorious new year with old unnecessary baggage(stress)??? 

Believe it or not, we are almost always surrounded by stress. Be it work stress, relationship stress, self image stress, social stress….the list can be endless. Stress is unavoidable…it will be thrown at us at every nook and corner…BUT although we don’t have a choice at what is thrown at us…we have a choice as to how we allow it to effect us.

New year stress can be a very real thing. Its human tendency to reflect on the year gone by and think of all the things we achieved or didn’t achieve. I personally choose to focus on what I did achieve…that leads me to feel happy for the year that has gone by and makes me feel hopeful for the new year. Continue reading
