I have gone through most of my life trying to be like someone else. Never satisfied with who I am and never happy with myself. I always wanted to be thinner, smarter, prettier, accepted, creative and, so much more, always wondering why I was none of those things.
I was never content with myself because I always thought that others were better at everything, and I was not. I would go to seep thinking and sometimes praying to be as pretty, or as thin, or as smart as my peers, and then I would be happy and have everything I needed.
I have found happiness many years ago but was too busy to notice because I kept wanting to be someone I was not.
I didn’t give myself any credit at all but would be upset when others would not give me credit or notice when I did something worth noticing.
It took me a lot of my adult years to discover that I was enough just as I am. I finally realized that I did not see or want to see the potential in myself even when people would compliment me and praise me,
I just refused to hear them and acknowledge what they were saying.
I have learned over the years that the people I always envied grew up thinking and feeling just like I was in my younger days. They were hoping and praying just like I was to be like someone else.
We need to be content exactly as we are to be truly happy, or else we will continue to chase an image of ourselves that will always be out of our reach.
Start loving the little things about yourself and start talking to yourself just like you would be talking to your best friend. After all, you are your true best friend.
Love you all,
Do you know about Frequency??
It has been shown that a normal healthy body has a frequency of 62–72 MHz. When the body drops below this frequency, we begin to get into illness and disease states. For example, if our frequency drops to 58 MHz, then we are likely to get a cold or flu.
Essential oils help to raise our frequency which can help with disease, balance our body, and help with emotions.
Having negative 👎 thoughts, eating processed foods, drinking coffee ☕️all can lower our frequency. But we are all human so therefore, using the pure therapeutic oil will help raise our frequency.
Pure therapeutic essential oils range in frequency from 52 to 580 MHz.
Idaho Blue Spruce can only be purchased through Young Living has a frequency of 580MHz .
I love my coffee so I apply Idaho Blue Spruce to my crown (on top of the head) daily!!!
Give it a try!!!
Have you ever been in a tense or difficult situation when you suddenly burst into a fit of giggles? Or feel a release or rejuvenated after watching a side-splittingly funny movie?
It turns out there’s some scientific veracity behind the old adage “laughter is the best medicine.”
“Laughter activates the body’s natural relaxation response. It’s like internal jogging, providing a good massage to all internal organs while also toning abdominal muscles,” says Dr. Gulshan Sethi, head of cardiothoracic surgery at the Tucson Medical Center and faculty at the University of Arizona’s Center for Integrative Medicine.
Perhaps that’s why Deepak Chopra says the healthiest response to life is laughter.
Studies have found that laughter can have healing properties; and it’s contagious. Here are six reasons why you should start laughing today.
Laughter is Contagious
The discovery of mirror neurons—what causes you to smile when someone smiles at you—gives credence to the belief that laughter is contagious.
When you’re feeling down finding friends to laugh with can help your brain trigger its own laughter response and foster closeness, both of which contribute to your sense of well-being. Why do you think that sense of humor is such an important trait when looking for a partner? We like the feeling of shared laughter and our body wants as much of this feeling as possible.
Laughter Reduces the Stress Response
When you laugh there’s a contraction of muscles, which increases blood flow and oxygenation. This stimulates the heart and lungs and triggers the release of endorphins that help you to feel more relaxed both physically and emotionally.
Laughter Boosts Immunity
According to one study done at Indiana State School of nursing, mirthful laughter may increase natural killer cell levels, a type of white blood cell that attacks cancer cells.
Laughter Increases Resilience
Resilience is the ability to see failure as natural progression to success rather than as a negative outcome. People who are resilient are happier and more successful.
The ability to acknowledge mistakes without becoming angry or frustrated plays an important role in developing resilience. Laughing at mistakes allows us to recognize that making errors is a part of being human.
Laughter Combats Depression
Studies support laughter as a great way to get outside the downward spiral to depression. Being unhappy can become a pattern or mindset if we don’t step outside of ourselves occasionally. By being a witness to our situation rather than allowing ourselves to feel the victim we can find the humor in it and see with fresh eyes. Even forced laughter releases a cocktail of hormones, neuropeptides, and dopamine that can start to improve your mood.
Laughter Relieves Pain
People who are laughing don’t experience less pain, however they report being less bothered by the pain they do experience. It’s not about changing pain levels. The amount of pain remains the same, but your perceived pain levels reduce and your belief that you can cope increases. Laughter by itself isn’t the solution but it can help a person overcome discomfort.
Quick Hacks to Bring More Laughter Into Your Life
- Make humour a priority by reading a funny book, watching a comedy, or listening to your favourite comedian.
- Share laughter with friends. Spend more time with people who have fun.
- Practice laughter yoga, which Dr. Sethi practices and teaches on occasion.
- Remember that life is funny. The ability to laugh at yourself makes you attractive to others and can help relieve your own stress. Focus on finding the laughable moments in your day, and then tell a friend your funny story as a way to increase the power of laughter by sharing.
- Know what isn’t funny. Laughing at the expense of others isn’t funny. Be discerning about your humor by laughing with—not at—people.
