You Are More Than You Think You Are

Many times we may think that what we feel or think is just crazy or we feel the need to hear something that we already know but we need to hear it from someone else in order to believe it. Believing that you are more than you think you are will give you the confidence that who you want to be is possible, that what you want to achieve is reachable. This all ties in to self-esteem and self-esteem is part of well-being.

How can you start believing that you are more than you think you are when you never thought more of yourself? You do this by taking baby steps. Start by doing your best to achieve something that may be small. Don’t rest until you achieve this. After achieving that small goal, you will gain the confidence that you can achieve other goals as well and you will be more ambitious to achieve another goal but this time a big one. Every goal that you achieve is a step closer to feeling and believing that you are more than you think you are.

What has helped me a lot has been giving myself some quiet time to listen to myself in order for me to know what it is that I want and feel. If I feel an inclination to do something, even if I don’t know why I want to do it, I do it anyways. This act of daring to listen to myself despite any fears I may have has helped me work my courage muscle and self-confidence muscle. The one thing to remember about this is that feeling that you are more than you think you are will take time. There will be good days and bad days. Take things as it is and don’t resist the bad feelings you may feel because this is also part of working that mental/emotional “I am more than I think I am” muscle. You learn from both the good and the bad.

Turn off other people’s voices. I truly believe that no one really truly knows what you are capable of but you, if only you trust yourself. There are times when unfortunately other people may place their insecurities on you, discouraging you from doing or being something or they just may not understand what you are trying to do. I honestly believe that although other people may mean well, only you can truly know what you want. In order for you to see and manifest that you truly are more than you think you are, listening to yourself is crucial, but not that critical, judgmental voice of yours, no. You have to listen to what your soul wants. I believe listening to your soul will be key to you unlocking your potential.

You are more than you think you are and the faster you start to believe this, the faster you will be all that you are designed to be. It is your birthright to reach your potential and be the person you are designed to be- healthy, strong, happy, energetic, positive, beaming with light. You are more than you think you are and it’s a matter of taking the first step of believing this. It will take time but this is worth working on. You truly are more than you think you are!

For Your Well-being, Don’t Place Yourself In Situations Where You Will Be Hurt

Many times I have placed myself in situations where I don’t think I meant to hurt myself but I did. I had shed many tears unnecessarily, I have been disappointed by others many times and all this despite all the evidence staring at me in my face that I should get out of the situation in which I got myself in. I think most of us can familiarize with this feeling and situation and I can only tell you from personal experience that for your well-being, don’t place yourself in situations where you will be hurt!

But why do we place ourselves in hurtful situations? How can we avoid this to begin with? First off, as human beings we all have needs. Need to be loved, need for attention, need for connection, need to feel needed, need for that feeling of importance. Because of these basic needs we can find ourselves in situations that had it not been because of these needs, we would not have placed ourselves in those situations to begin with. This is the reason why it is so important to understand yourself, oh how powerful it is to understand yourself, and what your needs are. This simple understanding can uncover a lot of what we have in our subconscious and can reveal to us what holds us back from the life we truly long. So start by understanding what your needs and wants are.

Love yourself! Truly, when you love yourself, you won’t allow anyone to hurt you or treat you any less than you deserve. You won’t even settle for situations that you don’t deserve, i.e. get involved with someone who is unavailable, among other stuff. When you love yourself, you understand your worth as a person or woman/man and so you will only accept situations or people that are worthy of you.

When you find yourself already in a situation where you can see that you are heading towards the “hurt” road, stop for a second. Ask yourself why you are driving down that road. If you need outside feedback, ask someone you love and trust what they think about the situation. You will be surprised how much you can open your eyes with some outside perspective about the situation. Truly dig inside you to understand what leads you to drive down this hurtful road.

Ask yourself, “if you can be in any situation or have anything in life, what would it be?” For example, if what you are looking for is true love and all you keep attracting are unavailable men or women, really ask yourself what do you want. Do you really want to be in a situation where you know you won’t be heading where you want to go? If you are trying to go to California, I’m pretty sure you won’t catch a plane going to Montana, would you? So ask yourself why you are doing this same exact thing in other situations in your life. This will help you think more about where you want to be and will help get your antennas working properly to really be on the look out for what you truly want and deserve.

This is just some of the many things that you can do in order to understand yourself more, get more of what you want in life and get what you truly deserve. You DESERVE more out of life. You don’t have to be content with situations that are somewhat nice or just plain not healthy.

Where To Find Inspiration When You May Feel You Have None

There are good days and bad days. Days when you will feel on top of the world and days when you feel like blah. So with this said, where do you find inspiration when you feel like you have none?

I think that when you look for that inspiration outside of yourself, you may find that you may be a bit disappointed because you look onto someone or something (and with this I’m referring to material stuff)  to give you what you think you will find outside of you. It is when you stop for a minute and quiet your mind that you can find that peace that perhaps you need and that inspiration to keep moving forward. Nature also provides so much for us to feel inspired. For me, it’s looking up at the sky that for some reason, this provides a sense of peace for me. It is my faith in something higher, God in this case, that keeps me inspired. That faith that good things are coming despite the moment I may be living.

Inspiration, we may find it outside of us but if you want lasting inspiration, you will find that inspiration already lives within you. You already are a source of inspiration for someone and may not even know it. One thing I would like to add is that if you depend on feeling inspired in order to get things done, you may not live life to the fullest because you won’t always be inspired but yet you should encourage yourself always to live life to the fullest, regardless of what life throws at you.

What does this have to do with well-being? Well-being includes different aspects of our lives. Many times we wait to be inspired in order to start that project we had in mind. We wait to feel inspired in order to start losing weight or eat healthy. We wait to be inspired in order to start living life. With this said, despite the challenges of life, despite the downs you may have, despite any disappointment you may feel, dare to live life to the fullest! Dare to inspire yourself to a great life! Inspire yourself to be more today than you were yesterday! Believe it or not, that inspiration always lives inside of you.

Reminders of Abundance

There are times that we may feel hopeless, doubtful, feel scarcity, feel emptiness or sadness. Perhaps it may be because you are currently in a bad situation either financially, in regards to health or relationship, etc. Perhaps what you see around you are situations that seem pitiful (i.e. people around you who may seem miserable or unhappy). Perhaps you had dreams that you never accomplished for whatever the reason may be and feel hopeless or you may feel that certain things are just out of your reach. Perhaps you have some limiting beliefs that are stopping you from having happiness and prosperity. Whatever it is, all these things can be like a heavy weight pulling you down and make you feel like life is full of lacks and limitations. When we feel this way is when we truly need to remind ourselves of all the abundance that is out there not just for others but for ourselves as well.

Whenever you need a reminder of abundance, just think of the air we breathe. We all need air and despite this need, there is still an abundance of it. Just look at the sky so vast. Since I was a child, I love to look up at the sky because it reminds me and it always made me feel like the sky is truly the limit and that anything is possible. Remind yourself that you can walk, that is a blessing. That you can see, how wonderful it is to see! That you can hear, if you have health, you have gold in your hands! There are so many reminders of abundance all around us that many times we get so stuck on the small stuff that we don’t even realize it. And if for whatever reason you can’t see or hear or walk, you STILL have blessings. Those are not the worst disabilities, the worst one is the one of the mind, the one where WE are the ones who limit ourselves.

Whenever you feel stuck or have any feeling that puts you down, remind yourself of all the abundance around you! Even if you have to think about the smallest thing, do so because believe it or not, the smallest thing that you think is not a blessing is truly a blessing.

How does all this tie to well-being? This has everything to do with well-being because to have a balanced, prosperous life where you are truly living to the fullest, mentally and emotionally you have to be in the right place. The body follows the mind and vice versa. If you think little of yourself, if you think negative, every cell in your body feels this as well and responds accordingly.

Truly one of the greatest things you can do to add more well-being into your life is to remind yourself often of all the abundance that you have.

The Importance of Having an Outlet

I’m a believer that no matter what our responsibilities are, no matter how many things we have to do, it is necessary to have an outlet.

What is an outlet? Just like we use an outlet to charge our electronic devices, an outlet for us would be an activity or something that helps us recharge our batteries so that we can have the energy to do all the other things that we have to do. It is that outlet that gives us strength, it helps us deal with the everyday life. An outlet can be an activity (i.e. yoga, meditation, exercise, reading, etc.)  or a place that gives us a sense of peace. An outlet is like an “escape” to what we are doing every day. That outlet can also be a good friendship that we may have. The activity is up to you. There are so many things that one can do in order to entertain the mind and soul and thus have more health in every sense.

Why is it important to have this? When we live just to work, just to take care of the family, just to fulfill our everyday duties without having something that we do just for us that we truly enjoy, we can burn out. We can get to a point of boredom. When there is a great responsibility on us and we have no outlet to recharge our batteries, we can have a mental breakdown. Cultivating other areas of our life is just as important for our health and well-being like it is to be eating right. When we don’t place any importance on our mental, emotional and spiritual self, we may just start to slip. We may feel like things are going downhill and not understand why when the solution can be something as simple as having an activity that we enjoy for ourselves.

Part of taking care of ourselves is being able to have things that we enjoy doing, having people whose company we truly enjoy, anything that is healthy for our mind and soul. We must always feed our mind and soul in order to have well-being. What is it that you will be doing today in order to feed your mind and soul?

Everything Happens In Your Favor

It is normal to be disappointed when something didn’t go right or when something that you wanted didn’t go through. Disappointments are a part of life. However, in order to grow in well-being, it is important to be able to view the disappointments in another light.

I truly believe in the power that our mind has on our mental, emotional and physical health. I believe that with our mind we have the capacity to cure ourselves if we wanted to. The mind also has the power of making us sick and it is because of this power that I always emphasize how we need to learn to use our mind right. With all this said, it is important that we learn to view that everything happens in our favor.

Everything works in our favor, even when people disappointment us. When an opportunity shuts in your face, it is because there is a bigger more beautiful opportunity waiting to arrive. When a relationship didn’t work out, it’s because there is someone even better for you but for that person to come into your life, the person who is currently in your life needs to leave your side. Something that may seem bad can be an opportunity for growth. It is an opportunity to be able to view things in a way that perhaps you would not have thought of viewing in that way. When something didn’t work out, God knows or the Universe knows what it was trying to avoid you of going through.

I believe that when we view that everything happens in our favor that we get less disappointed. We get angry less often, we are more relaxed and our mind remains clear. In other words, it is beneficial for your health to view things in this manner. We can enjoy greater health because we see how the universe is working towards our well-being.

I have to admit that if you are not used to viewing things in this manner, this will take some time for you to believe and feel. However long it takes, give it time but start now believing that everything happens in your favor. You will see how little by little your life will transform in a beautiful way. I challenge you to start viewing how everything happens in your favor.

Beware of Your Needs

Needs are needs and they are to be acknowledged and respected. We all have a need to be loved, to be needed, to feel connected and a part of something, etc and these are all natural needs. Nothing wrong with them, except when we allow our needs to take over and rule our way of thinking, feeling and behaving in ways that compromise our well-being.

This is why I wrote for the title of this post “beware of your needs” because no matter what need it is, that need, if it’s not in check, can take over you and turn you into a person that you are not otherwise. Balance in everything is important and it also important when it comes to your needs.

I think one of the best ways to balance out your needs is by putting as a priority your sense of peace and well-being. When you make your sense of peace and well-being a priority, no matter how much you may want something, you will judge whether it is worth having what you need based on how it makes you feel and whether or not it adds to your life. A perfect example I can think of is when your need is to be in a romantic relationship. That is a normal need to have but when your priority is your sense of peace and well-being, when someone that may seem like a good candidate comes along, you will be a better judge of whether or not this person is worth having in your life because you are not as hungry for that need since something else has a bigger priority. The problem with needs is not the need itself but the intensity of that need. Feeling hungry is normal but when you are starving, even a salty meal tastes yummy although it is not good for you. This is why I suggest that when having a need, offset it by making something else that truly is important like your peace and well-being a priority so you are not as hungry and settle for something unhealthy for you. Just like you would have a snack in between breakfast and lunch so that by the time it is lunchtime you are not starving, there are other ways that you can better handle that need you have and something else needs to be a priority for you to control the intensity of that need. “How can the whole snacking in between meals be compared to needing a romantic relationship?” you may ask and the answer to this is that I think the secret to not being so hungry for a need is to have other things going on that somewhat satisfies that need that you have. For example, cultivating other healthy relationships such as friendships and family can help when it comes to a longing you may have.

There is nothing worse for your sense of well-being than losing your center and balance in life. When you do lose these things, you become someone you are not, you make choices that are not right for you, you settle for situations that are not healthy for you so in essence, you are compromising your well-being. Nothing is worth you compromising your well-being, not even a need.
