Feeling and Being Discouraged!

Feeling discouraged can be very frustrating especially if you feel
discouraged a lot!

This is what I know: the word ‘discourage’ is the direct opposite of
‘courage’.  I know that many women have been discouraged once
or twice in their lives (maybe more).

Being discouraged can make you crazy!  Especially if you hold
on to the feeling of discouragement for a long period of time.
Sometimes it’s really hard to get out of or let go of that crazy
cycle of feeling and being discouraged.

I do have to say that it is important for all of us to experience
these types of feelings, so that we can come to that place of
knowing what it feels like, what was the reason or thing that
got us in to that funky place (as I like to call it) in the first place
and that we never ever want to go back there again if possible.

Of course if you’re at that mastery level of being in total control
of your mind, feelings and emotions, then that’s really great.
End of story!  But… if you’re not at that mastery level then this
is for you.

There are so many reasons why you would get in to that funky
place of feeling and being discouraged that it’s almost
impossible to mention all of them here.  Especially because
of how different you are from everyone else.

Now that’s a good thing, that you’re different from everyone
else.

You are a unique soul and don’t ever let anyone tell you
otherwise.

One reason for feeling discouraged that I would like to mention
is when things aren’t going the way that you’d like them to go.
Now that’s a big one because we as women are so used to
taking care of everyone and everything, we know how we like
things done and when we want it done (like now!)  Ha ha, funny
but true.

When things aren’t going the way we want and it’s taking way
too long, we can get discouraged very easily because we are
so used to making things happen.  Obviously there may be a
feeling of anger at first but, when it’s out our control that anger
can turn to discouragement.

It’s one thing to feel discouraged but it’s another thing to
be/being discouraged.

If you’re at that point of being and you’ve been there for a while,
it’s probably not a good feeling that you want to hold on to.
It is possible to get out of that funky place.  If you let it hold on
to you for a long period of time, it could prevent you from so
many things in life.

You don’t want to get to that point of depression and stress.

Take a deep breath and know that help is on the way!  🙂

The number one thing that you can do is to acknowledge
who you are and what your gifts are.  You are a wonderful
women here on earth to grow and learn, to gain all kinds of
experiences that will make you in to a better person if you let it.

Your gifts are so important for you as a woman.

I can’t stress that enough here.  You were given gifts that are
only for you.  Those gifts are to bless you personally and to bless
those around you and whom you come in contact with through
out your life.

Remember that feeling and being discouraged is only temporary.

Remembering what your gifts are can help you to have the courage
to move forward no matter what is going on in your life and to get
out of that ‘discourage’ trap that is easy to fall into.

Body Image, How It Affects You

One of the things that I’ve discovered by working with women is that
they suffer from really poor body image.  It’s really hard to look good
in your clothes if you have a really poor body image, because your
poor body image shows up in your posture, how you stand how you
walk, how you sit, how you talk.

Do you have a poor body image?

If you’ve answered you to that question, your not the only one.
Try thinking about the things that are positive instead of focusing
on the negative things about yourself.

Excitement For The Day!

Do you wake up every morning excited for the day?

I’ve been asking myself that same question for a while now.

Because of all the things I have to do on a daily basis, I haven’t been waking
up excited for the day.  What is going on?

There are so many people out there who are going through the same thing.

Think back to when you were a kid, you’ll be able to remember what were
those things that made you excited, because we all need to look forward to
something.

What Is Your Style?

Do you even have a style?  I want to talk about it because many people
are confused about style.

Have you heard people talk about the different styles called – a girly look,
a edgy look, a classic look, a vintage look, a sporty look, a beach-y look,
a bohemian look, a punk rock look?

The styles of dress are diverse as people are.

Think about how you feel when you get dressed, deciding what your style
is just fun.  You can create the look and feel that you want.

Experiment with different styles and colors, you’ll be amazed at what you
can create.

Do You Have Bumps And Bulges You Want To Hide?

Find out what a printed fabric can do for you!

There are many types of fabric out there like I mentioned in my previous video
and I want to share with you in this video about the design or print that’s on
the fabric of the clothes that you’re wearing.

Sometimes when you go shopping for clothes, you are automatically are
attracted to the print or color.

Busy print fabric hides a lot of things like bumps and bulges, and

cotton fabric that is woven will camouflage your bumps and bulges because
it doesn’t cling to your body like a knitted shirt or blouse will.

We all want to look nice in our clothes, so pay attention to all the little details
of the clothes that you’re wearing.

Let me know if this video has helped you.

Money Can Take The Luster Out Of Life

Do you ever feel like money takes the luster out of life?

Money is something people really don’t like to talk about, but we all want money.

We have to get to a point where we get comfortable talking about it and figure out
how we can deal with it and not let it suck the life out of us.

When you’re stressed about money, it shows on your face, it shows up in the
conversations that you have.

Don’t give all of your good energy to stressing over money.

There are things that you can do to alleviate a lot of that stress, like prepare, take
the time to figure out how much money you can set aside every month to use as backup.

Different Types Of Fabric | Be Aware Of What You’re Wearing

There are many different types of fabrics that your clothes are made out
of and I share some reasons why you should care.

There are natural fabrics like cotton and then there are man made fabrics
like polyester and rayon.

There are different ways that fabrics are made – woven and knitted, and
these fabrics can be loosely or tightly woven or knitted together.

You should be aware of what you’re wearing.

Some fabrics breathe well and others don’t, so make sure you try on
the clothing items before you buy it, because you won’t be able to tell
just by looking at it.

Wearing Gold and Silver Jewelry Together

People think that it’s ok to wear gold and silver jewelry together,
but from what I know is that gold and silver are not usually
complimentary when you wear them together, but, there are
exceptions to that rule.

Gold and Silver has it’s own vibe – gold gives off a warm feeling
when you’re wearing it and silver tends to give off a cooler type
of vibe, and the two different metals tends to clash when you
wear them together.

If you want to wear the two metals together, make sure that the
pieces have something in common like diamonds or that the
pieces are both the same like they both are delicate or both are
chunky.

Color Tells A Visual Story About You

All month I’ve been talking about color and how important it is.  Color tells a
visual story by telling people what colors you like.  Do you like to wear bright
happy colors?

Wearing black and neutral colors also tells a story about if you like to be seen
or noticed.

Another way is – are you happy or not?  Do you wear your favorite or bright
colors?  Do you like to feel happiness and joy when you do wear those colors?

What you believe is another visual story that you’re telling. Do you believe that
wearing black or dark colors will make you look thinner?

You should wear you favorite color, it will make you happy.

Colors For The Different Occasions

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Color is important.

Red, we usually associate that color with Valentine’s Day and we also
associate color with the other occasions through out the year, like
Easter – we think of the yellows and the pastel pinks and pastel blues.

Each color creates some kind of emotion and affects our lives without
us even realizing us.

Color can be very persuasive.  There’s a color psychology to every
color out there.

Wear the different colors that you don’t normally wear!  You have to
have a little variety in life.
