Today I celebrate 49 glorious trips around the sun

Sharing is caring!

Today I celebrate 49 glorious trips around the sun. I am so deeply grateful for every year I have on this earth, because I am reminded that not everyone is afforded the same luxury. This journey has taught me many things and in honour of this very special occasion, I will share some of them with you.

  1. Love the life you have and work for the life you want.
  2. Be the solution, not the problem.
  3. It’s your BAR, you can raise it as high as you want.
  4. You do not have to attend every argument you’re invited to.
  5. Taking the path of least resistance makes rivers & people crooked.
  6. Always choose courage over comfort.
  7. The comeback is always stronger than the setback.
  8. If you’re looking for someone to heal your pain, change your life, fill that void; take a look in the mirror.
  9. Everybody wants to be seen, heard & validated. To be seen, we must present our truth. To be heard, we must speak our truth. To be validated, we must live our truth.
  10. What was no longer is.
  11. Everything you ever wanted is 1 step outside your comfort zone.
  12. Life is too short to not do what you love to do.
  13. There is strength in needing others, not weakness.
  14. You don’t know you can do it, until you do it.
  15. Every now & then, a person with no agenda, no ulterior motive & no self-interest will take pleasure in helping you to succeed, grow & live your purpose. This person will operate in love, will seek no praise & will want nothing in return. This person is a gift.
  16. You are a beautiful, brilliant human. Remember that!
  17. It really does take a village to raise a child.
  18. If you don’t go after what you want, you will never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.
  19. The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow.
  20. Never give up on a dream just because of the time it takes to accomplish it. Especially when that time will pass anyway.
  21. If you want to be loved for who you are, shouldn’t you love others the same way? It begins with you.
  22. Your time here is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.
  23. Far too many people have no idea what they can do because they have only been told what they can’t do.
  24. Find your tribe & love them hard!
  25. I am big enough, I am smart enough, I am tough enough. I can do this!
  26. Dream, believe & achieve.
  27. When we are at our angriest, we are at our stupidest.
  28. When all is said & done, will you have said more than you have done?
  29. Children read our body language better than they hear our words.
  30. Toxic is toxic. Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Friend, Neighbour. You have the right to cut out anyone who is not a positive influence in your life.
  31. There comes a time to stop making things right with people who won’t admit where they went wrong.
  32. One of the greatest sins is living an unlived life.
  33. You are brilliant, talented & beautiful. Be YOU!
  34. You were not born a chameleon. Stand up, stand out & stand proud.
  35. Sometimes the good you do, doesn’t do you any good.
  36. You have a 100% success rate!!! You have already survived 100% of your worst days. Celebrate your success & keep going!!
  37. Your past is not your fault. Your future is your responsibility.
  38. Whatever life gives you, give more back.
  39. Explain your anger instead of expressing it & you will find solutions instead of arguments.
  40. When the power to love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace. – Jimi Hendrix
  41. It all begins & ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you.
  42. Your emotions will be controlled by 2 things: Circumstance & Character. Focus on developing your character and your circumstance won’t matter.
  43. Don’t tell someone to get over it. Help them through it.
  44. Forgive yourself.
  45. Stop allowing insecure people to dictate your worth, your value, your ability or your intelligence.
  46. Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. Strength comes from overcoming the things you thought you couldn’t.
  47. Never regret anything that has happened in your life, it cannot be changed, undone or forgotten. So take it as a lesson learned & move on.
  48. Take a deep breath & remember who the fuck you are!
  49. Celebrate YOU! You are worth celebrating!!
Celebrate YOU!

I am so blessed for so many reasons. I have the unconditional love & never-ending support of my family. I am surrounded by many, many friends; both new & old. I am living my best life and assisting others to do the same.

I am grateful for every single moment of my 49 years. My story is a series of events. Each chapter tells a story of heartache or joy, failure or victory. The heartaches, disappointments and failures are as much a part of my success as the joy, honour, love & laughter. It all comes together beautifully.

Thank you for joining my on my journey. I am grateful for you because you are the reason I am ME!!

Live Your Life on Your Terms!
