What's your standard for living?

Often times we find ourselves living beneath our potential. Maybe you have it all together, or you may be in denial like I once was. The reality is, that I could do a lot better in this so-called "life". I could do a lot better. I can look back and see where I self-sabotaged things, simply because it was hard for me to believe that I actually deserved better.  Instead of embracing the better, I would create the results that I was used to getting in life. No one can stop you, but you. Get out of the way of your feelings. Your feelings don't matter. Once you realize that, you will become free. Stop allowing your feelings to rule over you, dictating how you feel and how you respond. Tell your feelings to go to HELL. They are standing in the way of you discovering your greatness. Feelings are your ego.  We don't love or give love from ego.

A New You!

Who said that you must wait until New Year to make some changes? Exactly. I decided to change my life and it was as simple as making up my mind to do better. For years I battled with depression, simply because it was my "go to feeling." Sadly, this is an accurate statement. I failed to realize that I had the power to strengthen my mind and could respond differently to unfavorable situations. I could actually choose how I wanted to react to people and circumstances. This awakening was so powerful. I began to use it in every area of my life.

I remember my mother asked me, "Marita how are you losing weight?" I told her that I just decided to. I knew people who were more knowledgeable about living a healthy lifestyle than I, so I decided to ask them for some pointers. I began my weight loss journey. This blog is not about losing the weight, it's about making up my mind to lose the weight. It's a decision.

Life

Life is life. It doesn't stop or have knowledge of all the other events that occur daily. It just happens! Life, death, disappointments, and accomplishments. Life is life. However how you prepare and react to your life matters. You cannot sit on the side lines and throw yourself a pity party. Life will pass you by if you're not actively participating. It's like a parade. You can either be in the parade, waving, smiling, and having a good time, or on the side lines picking up candy from the ground as a spectator. 

This week has been awful for me yet joyous. Does this sound familiar? It can be the best and worst time of your life all at the same time. One of my closest friends was killed in a car accident , my aunt died, my middle daughter had surgery on you mouth, yet I landed a huge contract with a celebrity client. Really life, really? Yes that's life for you. You must learn when to mourn, when to laugh, and when to push through your pain to get to the other side of …
