Happiness Is Giving Yourself A Daily ‘Pep-Talk’

Hello everyone, hope you’re all well. I’m so happy to post my my article that appeared in last months issue at The Inspired Guide magazine (here) Hope you are inspired, uplifted and encouraged.


If you walked near me in the parking lot on the way into the store and you could hear the chatter in my head, you would probably think I’m nuts (LOL) because what you will hear is – I am so talented.  I can do anything.  I’m young and vibrant and full of vigor. I’m a great writer.  I’m amazing…This is some of my daily ‘pep-talk’ to myself.  It just takes a few words to raise my vibration, make me feel good, empowered, happy, and have that I can do it feeling.

Loving yourself enough to really cherish who you are, to believe in yourself, to live with gratitude in yourself, is an attitude and mindset that you can cultivate. 

Growing up I wasn’t taught to believe in myself, to think of myself as beautiful, or that I could do anything.  At first, I was afraid to say loving words to myself.  I started jokingly saying, I’m wonderful.  Then I realized that a change was happening inside me, I wasn’t disliking and putting myself down, and I started to believe in what I was telling myself, and it was feeling pretty good.   

Last year when I had knee replacement surgery, it was my daily pep-talk that got me through it.  Telling myself, I can do this, I’m strong.  I’m healthy…it’s what helped me heal.  At times during the recovery period, when I got depressed, just a few encouraging words changed the way I was feeling and filled me with hope.

Why give yourself a pep-talk?

Because you are you.  Because you deserve.  Because you can.  Because it’s your life.  Your choice.  Because it’s good for you.  Because it will elevate you, open your heart, help you to become aware and awake to yourself. 

Every word that you say to yourself is either empowering or disempowering you, making you healthy or making you sick, it’s building you up or tearing you down.  Every single word is influencing your mood, how you see yourself, feel yourself. How you see the world around you.  Every word is influencing your experiences, and the actions you take. 

Giving yourself a pep-talk is like feeding yourself some spiritual medicine. 

Who hasn’t encouraged a friend, uplifted them with words like, you can do it.  I’m so proud of you.  You look great in that dress…A pep talk is not just reserved for others, and you don’t have to sit around and wait for anyone to come and tell you the warm, loving, encouraging words you want to hear.  You tell them to yourself.

Every word that uplifts you, empowers you, opens you up to yourself, opens the way to your inner truth, is like planting a little miracle inside of you.  Nourish yourself with a pep-talk, you’ll gain confidence, courage, trust in yourself.  You’ll gain self-esteem. Giving yourself a pep-talk can help you heal, it’s a great motivating tool.  It can get you through challenging times, it will fill you with happiness – I’m worthy of more.  I’m proud of myself. I am fearless…there’s so much you can say to yourself.  Do a google search to get ideas.

You are a magnificent miracle, blessed with the freedom of choice.  You can live your highest or your lowest self, it’s your choice.  Honor yourself, honor your life.  Nourish yourself with goodness.  Give yourself a pep-talk every day, talk to yourself in loving words because it’s your life and you deserve AMAZING!!!



Magic Thought #5

~ magic thought ~

Life is always changing, things come up, sometimes these are great things, sometimes they are not so great.  The key in dealing with the changing seasons in our life, is how we react to the season we’re in.  Our reaction determines our experience of it. 

It’s your choice, you can decide to stress over it and make yourself nuts, or you can decide you can do it, and know that you’ll get through it, and let it pass through you in an easier way.

Everything passes everything changes, nothing stays the same and if you’re going through a season of not so great, just hold on to the thought that – this too shall pass.

Happy weekend!



Magic Thought #4

~ Magic thought ~

Wake up every morning and say to yourself, I love me

I – l – o- v -e -m -e

stay in that energy for a moment, feel the words penetrate your whole body, your mind, feel them deep inside  your soul. Bask in the love of your own being. Love yourself unconditionally and anabashedly.  Be the most important to yourself, have a relationship with yourself, be your own best friend, trust in the magic of your own being. 

How are you giving yourself love this weekend, love to hear from you 🙂

Magic Thought #3

Feel good about yourself

you don’t need anyone else’s approval for that.

When you feel good about yourself

from your own inner self,

you become empowered.
