TRANSFORMATION

HAPPY NEW YEAR MY FRIENDS!!!

As I look back at 2013, I see a year filled with endings, changes and a big transformation in my life. Still, I am filled with gratitude and happiness even if, I muss say it was a trying year. I am thankful for still being here and enjoying every single minute of this wonderful life.

I am more focused and aware of how important the hard times are, in order for us to grow and become the incredible humans that we all are. I have learned to trust more in THE Higher Power and remember that, in that moment, where difficulties arrive, I cannot see the bigger picture. I have also learned to stop listening to that VOICE inside my head, telling me that I’m not good enough and that I won’t amount to anything. That was a hard one! Finally, I have managed, most of the time, to stay in the NOW, be present and not go back to the past or put my projections onto the future.

So in the end, it was an incredible year for my growth and for my development. 2013 strengthened my desire to give more love, judge less, have trust and patience that everything in my life is exactly the way it is supposed to be.

For the first time, I have no idea where I am going, but I am not afraid. I have no job and this week, I was told that I have 3 months to move out of my apartment. 2 years ago, I would have been in total panic and stressed out. At the moment, I see life like an unfinished book and I am on a journey. I have no idea how it will turn out, still, I am totally excited and curious where life will take me. I truly believe that wherever I end up will be the right place for me.

Now that is some good piece of news….hahahaha!

Thanks for reading….. much Love Daisy

Why do we wait for others to make us happy, instead of doing it ourselves?

 

rosesGet a pedicure

Yes, I know you might have the kid and husband thing going on and maybe working that full-time job is keeping you busy. You don’t seem to find the time to do the things you want or that fun stuff that makes you smile. Maybe, you think that other people have to take care of these needs and buy you flowers or heck, just say nice things to you, so that you know that you are a great person. Well, I’m here to shake you up and tell you something else. You are a great person. Actually you are and should be the most important person in your life!!! “Huhhhh, but why?” I hear you asking. Well yes, because no one is really responsible for your happiness except for yourself!

I know, I know….we hear this all the time. And maybe, you are aware of this principle, but can’t seem to kind incorporate it into your life, because it’s just damn work or it’s hard. Fact is, that when you rely on others to bring you happiness, then you are on the road to disappointment. People can do nice things for you and of course, one should always be grateful for such people in our lives. But in the end, true happiness comes from being at peace with oneself from the inside. From knowing that you are wonderful (no matter what you think of yourself) and that you truly deserve to be treated like a goddess (or a god). You should treat yourself exactly how you would want people to treat you. That’s the first step. And I’ll repeat again: To treat yourself exactly how you would like people to treat you. Why? Because you are unique and special and no one on this earth is like you!

So why not start today with little things like buying yourself some flowers or getting that pedicure or just sitting in the sun and eating your favorite ice cream, which you used to eat when you were a kid. And why? Well, because you’re worthy and deserve it? Do things that make you smile. Things that make you feel good. I can almost guarantee you, that when you start doing this, after a while things will automatically change. People will treat you differently. You’ll just emanate joy and good vibrations from the inside and people will feel this.

When you are the one that takes good care of yourself and are constantly making yourself happy, no matter what it is that you are doing, then you will, eventually, get rid of the exceptions you put on others in being responsible for your bliss. As a result of this, you’ll experience less and less disappointment in others, because now you don’t expect others to bring you, what you are giving yourself.

Be good to yourself every moment of your life! Because you truly are worthy of it!

Why do we spend so much time in the past?

If you are going back over your life, focusing on the difficulties of the past, you are just projecting more difficulties into the now. If there’s one wonderful thing that you can do for yourself now, then letting go of the past would have to be it. Yes, I know how difficult this is because I’ve been there.

What I realized over the years was that doing this prevented me from enjoying this moment and from seeing the little but wonderful things in life. If you are spending most of the time reliving events of the past, you are missing out on what’s going on in front of your face. Also, if you are holding on to negative feelings or blaming someone, then you are taking it all with you into the present and harming yourself. Think about it!. Maybe this could haven been a moment that was important for you, a moment that would have given you a clue as how to go on, or maybe to change something. Maybe someone smiled at you, but you didn’t see it, because you were mad about the past. So, you just missed it. Isn’t that a shame?

How do you start? Well, how about right away, knowing that I truly believe in you! I started reminding myself every single day to remain in the present and since then everything changed for me. At first it was hard and I often had to bring myself to this moment like most of the day. But, as time went on, it became easier and these days I’m living about 90% in the present. I now see and am so grateful for the many splendid things that where there before, but I just couldn’t see. Simple things, like finally seeing the true color of  my friends’ eyes or the beautiful daisy’s growing just across the road. Funny enough, they were always there, waiting for me to take in their beauty. They waited patiently for me. Life is wonderful!
