"Let there be more joy and laughter in your living.

#Emotionalintelligence ;)
I process my emotions constructively.

Emotions help me to be a well-rounded person. I avoid brushing any of my feelings under the rug. I process them constructively and learn from the lessons they offer.

I love experiencing uplifting emotions like happiness, love, and pride. I take those feelings as they come and use them to make my days brighter. The effects spill over into tough situations and make them more bearable.

Anger is a difficult emotion, but I take it in stride. My first response to anger is to take a few moments to breathe. Deep breaths help me to achieve mental calmness so I can think clearly.

I know that I am allowed to feel angry about things, but it is important to manage my response.

Fear can sometimes overcome me. When I encounter scary situations, I am tempted to retreat. But I convince myself to stay put and handle what is in front of me. I know I have the necessary coping mechanisms to handle fear.

I take time to analyze why a particular situation makes me fearful. It is much easier to manage fear when I understand why I experience it.

I believe there is a technique for handling all emotions, especially the difficult ones.

Today, I embrace my emotions as they come and manage them responsibly. I focus on allowing my emotions to build me up instead of break me.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Which complex emotions do I sometimes need help to process?
2. In what ways can I help someone who seems overwhelmed by an emotion?
3. How do I know when I am confusing one emotion with another?

The way we feel about ourselves greatly impacts they way we live our lives. Most of the time how you see yourself is very different from how the world sees you. Remind yourself of your worthiness before getting out of bed. Breathe in love and breathe out love. Enfold yourself in light. Saturate your being in love!…..

Too often we are too busy and caught up with daily life that loving yourself can be over looked. Remember, it’s okay to stop and spend time on you! Make contact with your inner world through self-reflection and meditation. Explore your spirituality. Take the time to respect yourself and your body. Doing this will drastically impact every other area of your life. When you practice self love, you raise your frequency which is a key part in being able to love and connect with other people.

Acknowledge at least 5 great things you love about yourself. Tell yourself how precious you are. Go on, I’ll start you off.

1) I have a beautiful heart
2) ……..

Good morning have a beautiful day everyone hugs to all xo:)

As I move forward, I grow wiser.

I move forward because standing still is the only guaranteed way to fail. Moving forward, whether I walk through victories or defeats, is the only way I will learn and grow.  

Every step I take brings me one step closer to my goals. While on the journey to my dreams, I gather wisdom from my experiences, which helps me make better decisions in the future. In doing so, I am setting myself up for a life with no regrets.

I am eager to learn new lessons around me every day. I am mature enough to learn from the situations of others even before I face those situations myself. When I experience a shortcoming, I remind myself that mistakes are simply lessons in disguise.  

When I experience a personal victory, I take note of successful strategies that I can use in the future. If I ever encounter failure, I reflect on my actions in order to perform better the next time.  

I open myself up to new challenges with confidence allowing life to be my classroom. Each day I embrace life with the expectation that I will receive knowledge from the most unexpected places.  

I dare to venture into every day, even when I am surrounded by uncertainty, because being a risk taker pays off with new knowledge that I never would have acquired otherwise.

Today, I choose to walk forth into my destiny with wisdom and direction. I embrace the opportunity to learn from the many sources of knowledge that engulf me. My knowledge increases as I fearlessly accept the lessons I am being taught by life itself. 

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What lessons has life taught me recently?
2. What unexpected knowledge can I find today?
3. How can I share my wisdom with others?

The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men,who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.
Ezra Taft Benson ;)

I love you not only for what you are, but for
what I am when I am with you. I love you not
only for what you have made of yourself, but for
what you are making of me. I love you for the part
of me that you bring out....Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

:) I Am an effective decision maker.

I weigh my options wisely before making decisions.

I make wise decisions because I take time to evaluate the possible outcomes of my actions. Actions have consequences; therefore I plan mine with care. 

Making choices abruptly in the heat of the moment often leads to regret. I shield myself from shame by being quick to listen and slow to speak. Reacting in situations often has negative consequences because that is when feelings take over reason.

By giving myself time to cool down, I enable myself to think clearly and logically about situations. Once I have reached an objective state of mind, I weigh the pros and cons of the actions I am considering.

In my mind, I walk through the events that may follow after my decision. When I play scenes in my head, I can get a better idea of how things may work out. I use this information when making choices.

A large part of making wise decisions is to speak with other people who have been in similar situations. By listening to the experiences of others, I learn about actions and consequences.

When I become informed on a subject, I equip myself with knowledge to make wise decisions. I read books, ask questions, and pray or meditate about my decisions before I make them. 

It is important to me to make decisions that benefit those I care about as well as myself. Although I know I cannot always please everyone around me, I strive to be considerate of the people I love.

Today, I choose to pause before making important choices, and consider a number of possible outcomes. I ask for help and seek guidance in decision making from people I respect.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What important decision do I need to make right now?
2. Who can I ask for guidance?
3. Why is it important to give myself time and space for objectivity in the decision-making process?

Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is
more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies.
We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true,
the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator
of our favorite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams.
Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be
spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places.
And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the
greatest treasure of all -- one known only by those who love....Unknown.

Love is the essence of God....Ralph Waldo Emerson.
