Fill your soul with positive thoughts

It's time for another post with inspirational quotes.
What is the power in them? 
They can make you laugh and think. But above all, they can motivate you.
When you feel down and out, fill your soul with positive thoughts and vibrations as you read motivational quotes. 
Remember, whenever you have a choice, choose to be positive. People which choose to be positive, turn out to be happy.
Everything begins with our thoughts…

Take inspiration from these famous quotes :
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

''How you think about a problem is more important than the problem itself. So always think positively.''
Norman Vincent Peale~

''When you know what you want and want it bad enough, you will find a way to get it.''
~Jim Rohn~

Trust the still, small voice that says, ''This might work and I'll try it.''
~Diane Mariechild~

''Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.''

Do you realize that you're only a few thoughts away from your goal? Yes,life is supposed to be that simple. Focus on where you want to go and what you want to do, not on what you fear.
The only way to successfully manifest the life you desire... is to keep trying until you are successful. So don't give up!

''You can start with nothing, and out of nothing and out of no way, a way will be made.''
~Rhonda Byrne~

''Hey… Don’t ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you’ve got to protect it. People can’t do something themselves they gonna tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it. 
 ~Will Smith, The Pursuit of Happyness~

Believe in yourself!

Don't be shy

Being yourself can be hard sometimes. It is actually quite difficult, especially when you are a shy person.
Have you ever been shy?
Then you know it is very uncomfortable feeling.

When I entered my teenage years, I became extremely shy. My school work was affected by it, because I would not raise my hand to ask questions. In front of my friends I was very talkative, actually some of them thought I'm talking a bit too much. But whenever I met new people I couldn't talk. Thought of making a good impression put me in a scary situation.
Shyness prevented me from speaking up and expressing my own opinions. I prefered to be quiet just so no one could judge me negatively. 

I'm sure many of you came in contact with a shy person, some of you might tried to give them advice by saying; just be yourself, it's gonna be fine, just be confident.
But giving a person advice like (be yourself) or (be strong) will usually do nothing to help that person overcome shyness and help them to become more confident.
Because none of these things are easy to do, not for someone who is shy. Most people would really love to just be themselves and confident. But they simply can’t do it like that.
Shyness makes it difficult to talk to a new people, make new friends, or enjoy potentially good experiences life brings.

Did you know Gandhi was shy?
From an early age, he was a very shy person. Even as a lawyer in his early 30s, he was so shy that he could barely speak in front of a judge. It was until he found the right cause. Once you learn how to overcome your shyness, every other barrier in life will be easy in comparison.

It is very hard to overcome shyness, but with a help of positive thinking and affirmations you can make it situation better. It is important to realize that you can control your thoughts and your feelings.

Affirmations to overcome shyness :
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
1 -  I am confident, positive and friendly
2 -  I am confident when meeting new people
3 -  I am strong and courageous
4 -  I like people and people like me
5 -  People find me interesting
6 -  I am relaxed and expressive
7 -  I feel good about myself 
8I am a success
9 -  My communication is clear 
10- I am a talkative person, I feel comfortable and safe in a crowd

Your list of possitive affirmations is going to have an effect. It might be a very strong and quick effect or it might take weeks or months. It all depends on you.
If you take these affirmations seriously and make them a part of your daily routine, you will overcome shyness. Positive affirmations allow you to develop a positive mindset and affirmations are one of the most powerful strategies in life to help you get closer to your confidence.

Important note!
When you are shy you are quiet and being quiet leads to a calming effect on others. Also, shy people can appear to others to be innocent, good and nice. 
See, even being shy can have some great strengths.  :-)

''Sometimes the people you think don't want to talk to you, are the ones waiting for you to talk to them.''

''Other people's opinion of you does not have to become your reality.''  
~Les Brown~

''The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do.'' 

''A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.''

Write down your affirmations

Everyone has dreams in their lives, we all want to have a happy life full of love and happiness. However, taking the steps to get these dreams is what this is all about. 

This week I posted on my facebook page Positive thinking-Change your life for better
''Are your thoughts worthy of you?
If not - now is the time to change them. You can begin where you are right now. 
Nothing matters but this moment and what you are focusing your attention on. It's a new day and you have much to look forward to.''

What does it mean?
It means that it's never too late to start over. Positive thought is 100 times more powerful than a negative thought. Good news is that you can always start using the law of attraction and  change your thoughts anytime.
You can begin where you are right now. Do what you can and when you can.  It’s all about taking baby steps in the right direction, inch by inch.  These inches count, they add up to yards and miles in the long run. Think about it.  You have everything you need right now to take the next small, realistic steps forward.

Affirmations are a wonderful tool. I recommend you spend 10-15 minutes several times a day doing your affirmations. Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation.
Write it down and repeat them as often as possible. 


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Everything I do turns into success
I radiate positive energy
I love myself no matter what.
I attract to me unlimited abundance
Money comes to me easily
I am special and unique
I am living my full potential
My heart is open to love 
My relationship is harmonious

Feeling Tense? ... Think Me
Feeling Sad? ... Call Me
Feeling Lonely? ... See Me
Feeling Sleepy? ... Dream of Me
My Name is ... ''SELF CONFIDENCE''
Never Lose Me!

''A strong positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success.''

Everyone is important

Few years ago back I started a new job in the office. It was a very small place, actually our team was built from 3 people. And of course the owners, but they were hardly there.
My boss and my colleague were amazing and I'm so happy I had a chance to meet such a great people.
After working there for a while I met the owners.
''What is your name?'' the owner lady asked me.
''My name is Dusana,'' I replied.
''Say it again?''
''My name is Dusana,'' I repeated.
''Well, I cannot say it, so I'm gonna call you Sophie.''
''But my name is Dusana.''
''I really cannot say it, nice to meet you Sophie, you can go back to work now.''

With those words she walked away. I stood there in shock, not knowing what to say.
I couldn't believe it, I was angry, but the owner lady was very old and I didn't want to be rude.
I was young, started my new job, so what to do?
When she came next time I tried to correct her, but doesn't matter how many times I tried, she kept calling me Sophie.

That was a long time ago. I decided to let go. To let go does not mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else. To let go is not to care for, but to care about.
Everyone is important, no matter what age they are, or what country they are from. We are all the same and we should always respect each other.
Attitude, after all, is everything. Be kinder than necessary for everyone you meet, live simply, love generously, care deeply and speak kindly.
If we appreciate each other, then we have a chance for something great.


I would also love to share with you this story just to remind you once again that everyone is important.
Please, enjoy the story!

Do you know her name?
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
During Mark's first month of college, the professor gave his students a pop quiz. He was a observant student and had breezed through the questions, until he read the last one: 
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" 
Surely this was some kind of joke. He had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would he know her name? He handed in his paper, leaving the last question blank.
Just before class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward the quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the professor. 
"In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They each deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say 'hello'".
Mark never forgot that lesson. He also learned her name was Dorothy.

''To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.''

You can go your own way

I love quotes and my favorites are from Albert  Einstein. 
Whenever I read his quotes they put me in a calming state of knowing, I'm gonna be fine no matter what other people say.

Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something.
Many times when you start doing something new, support is what you need. Your friends become your strength.  
I'm a big dreamer, always trying to follow whatever I set my mind on. I believe if you truly want something, there's always a way to get it. Some of my close friends and of course my boyfriend are supporting me all the time, even though my dreams might sound silly and impossible. They are always there for me with their encouraging words and for that I'm very thankful to them. 

But in life, you always get people which they try to make you feel bad or not help you even when you asked them to help. Negative thoughts stand in resistance to the movement of your life.
Last time I found myself in a situation being let down. And then when I least expect it, I came across this quote.

"I'm thankful to all those who said 'NO' because of them, I did it myself."
~Albert Einstein~

How cool and amazing is this?
At least to me it was. It made me feel better and more positive about the future.
When you know what you want, and want it bad enough, go for it. Keep trying and trying.
You will get better with time and practice.
Truth is, you can have anything you want, if you have a clear picture of what it is and you’re fully committed to making it happen.

I realized ........... After all, it doesn't really matter what others think.
You can do it even when things are tough.
We only get one chance at life, so we shouldn't allow other people’s thoughts make it less enjoyable.
Remember, you can go your own way, because you are amazing.


''If you think you can do it, you can.''
~John Burroughs~

''Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.''

A Time for Romance

As I mentioned few weeks ago it is good to remind yourself, that there is always something you can do to make situation better than it is.
Summer is here and so it's time for romance.

We all dream about perfect love and the good news is, we all can have it.
Sounds crazy?
Maybe for some people, but I always believed everything is possible, if you really want it and if you go for it.  Believe in your dreams and what you want. Follow your intuition, watch romantic movies and remember that you can have it too.
Important thing is not to force it.

Don’t force yourself to fall in love just because you think it is your turn. Sometimes you may lack confidence in yourself, you may even start to look for someone to make you feel good about yourself. Don't rush, don't do it just to prove that you can find love easily.
Love will find you when you least expect it.
Something great will come along. Something better than you ever planned for.

Today I decided to remind you how to attract love into your life.
You can attract love, by using affirmations, because you are a master of your mind.
Repeat them on a daily basis, until you accept them into your life.


Affirmations for love:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ 
I deserve love and happiness.
I am attracting loving relationships into my life.
I am surrounded by love.
My heart is open to love.
I love and approve of myself.
I project love to everyone I meet.

I have a great relationship.
My relationship is filled with love, passion, understanding and fun. 

The healing power of gemstones can help transform your life, because gemstones are natural products of the earth. There is a great energy and power in a small piece of stone.
Rose Quartz is known as the ''Love Stone''.
It's a pink-colored crystal that carries gentle, soothing energy and gives comfort to anyone whose heart has been wounded. Rose Quartz is an excellent heart-healing gemstone.
You can wear it on you to improve your love luck, or you can hold it in your hand for healing.

Next step is try to Feng Shui your room a little bit. Declutter your room, get rid of dead plants, single objects or negative images, anything that represents cold and anger.
Feng Shui rule is anything in 2's.....
Arrange things always in pairs: 
2 pink candles, 
2 heart pillows on the bed,
2 pictures with love theme (couple in love, two doves),
2 rose quartz. 
Use pink or red candles to heat up your room. Candle light greatly energizes you and your bedroom with sensuality and passion. It will help you achieve your desires.

"Someone you haven't met is out there wondering what it would be like to meet someone like you." ~Author Unknown~

''Loving someone and having them love you back is the most precious thing in the world.''
~Nicholas Sparks~

"In dreams and in love there are no impossibilities." 
~Janos Arany~ 

''Don’t force yourself to fall in love just because you think it’s your turn. Wait for a while, maybe cupids are having a hard time searching for the heart that deserves the kind of love you can give.''

Summer is here ... why not start with an ideal summer stone.
I love gemstones and in my opinion Peridot is a gemstone that you should definitely get to know better. Its lime green to olive green, the perfect little extra to a fresh light summer wardrobe.
A peridot gemstone offers a stunning beauty.

Did you know?
This stone was believed to be a stone of springtime by ancients who considered it a gift from Mother Nature.

Peridot is used for these benefits:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
- Opens new doors to opportunity
- Helps with stress
- Calms the nervous system
- Good for confidence
- Accelerates personal growth
- Increases intuitive awareness
- Peridot opens, cleanses and activates the heart
- Releases negative vibrations 
- Helping to deal with jealousy, anger, envy 
- Used in a necklace, Peridot is a protector against negative emotions

Peridot is also a money stone.  Wear it to draw money and opportunity your way. Place it in your wallet, or your handbag along with Citrine. Peridot will help to draw money to you and Citrine will help to keep it once you get it.

Peridot is the birthstone for August. 
It is supposed to bring the wearer success, peace and good luck. It is also considered as a stone of rejuvenation and restoration of mental and physical well-being. It has also been used for purification and balancing.

And that's not all.
Peridot has other psychological effects and uses. It can greatly improve difficult relationships. It treats phobias, particularly those associated with fears of the dark, becoming like a security blanket to a small child.

A small rough Peridot or a tiny tumbled piece are relatively inexpensive... so why not think about trying one.
With its lovely energy it has the potential to make you feel happier and more positive.


''There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.''
