Do YOU do this behind closed doors too?

August 30, 2013 | Posted in General | By

Have you ever been so frustrated that you go behind closed doors just to catch your breath? Or maybe you go there to cry, yell, or swear?

There is nothing wrong with taking a moment to “discharge” your negative emotions, in fact, it’s healthy to do so! It is healthy, but not always practical; especially if you are at work, or with young people. So what do you do?

Go into a room, close the door, then let it all out! Cry, scream, swear, make obscene gestures, make faces or even punch a pillow, but get that frustration out. You will be surprised at how good it feels and then you can go on with your day. This is a great stress reliever, especially for Moms! We all love our kids but let’s face it, sometimes you really want to research boarding schools!

Or if you are at work and your boss is very demanding, you can always go to the restroom to get a moment. While there, text your spouse, or give your boss the middle finger behind the closed stall door. Whatever it takes, but get those frustrations out in a non confrontational way. This will alleviate your own stress, help you maintain your composure when you simply can’t blow up, and it might even make you laugh some!

The last time I flipped the bird to someone behind closed doors, I ended up laughing hysterically and felt much better all day! So if you find yourself completely irritated by bored kids, obnoxious bosses, or any other Frustrating Franks, go behind closed doors, take a deep breath, flip them off, make faces, and Live Inspired Now!

An Inspired Fairy Tale…

August 26, 2013 | Posted in General, Happiness, Inspiration, Personal Development, Relationships | By

Once upon a time there was an inspired princess. She was the most beautiful princess of all time,  with long red curly locks of hair that often overwhelmed her freckled, fair skin. The princess had an incredibly compassionate heart and always prioritized the needs of her people above her own; they loved her very much.
The princess herself had but one wish. She wished for true love. As a child she had heard a story of another princess in a far away land that kissed a frog and released a prince charming so she vowed to kiss frogs until her prince emerged.
The princess occupied her days with helping everyone and making other people very happy. In her spare time, she “kissed” every frog she came across, looking for the man of her dreams. Magnificent princes rode gallantly into her kingdom to court the inspired princess but she quickly sent them away; after all, they were not frogs and she knew that she was to rescue an ugly old frog from his tortured existence. So on she went, helping everyone, kissing frogs, and avoiding princes; and she did this for years.
One day, she woke and didn’t feel as inspired. She wondered why she was spending her days sharing her wealth and helping others, and still had not been rewarded with the one thing she truly wanted. How much longer would she have to give unselfishly only to return to her castle each night, lonely. It seemed as if she had lost her inspiration. She stopped leaving her castle and helping the people, and vowed to never kiss another frog.
One day, a knock came upon the large castle door. The sad, uninspired princess opened the door to see a very handsome prince standing before her with a large basket overflowing with baked goods, fresh fruit, vegetables, and hand made crafts. The charming prince told her that the townspeople missed her and had put together their finest offerings and had asked him to kindly deliver them to her with their love. The princess was moved to tears and invited the prince in to the castle. They shared baked goods from the basket and swapped stories for hours. Later, as the prince was preparing for his departure, she kissed his cheek and thanked him for the best day she had in years.
The princess returned to town after that and continued her work: caring for the sick, feeding the poor, and generously sharing what she had with her people. Eventually, she and the prince fell in love and on the day they were to be married the princess thanked the towns people for sending the prince to her. She also thanked the prince for helping her to see things clearly. She had been so busy trying to save frogs, she forgot to save herself.

The Inspired Princess and Prince Charming were married. They presided happily over an abundant and joyous kingdom, and lived inspired and happily ever after!

I want to be a “hugger!”

August 23, 2013 | Posted in General | By

Growing up, we weren’t “huggers.” Hugs were pretty much reserved for tragedy, so when you got a hug, it was because something bad happened. As an adult, I wanted to be a “hugger.” I thought it was so nice to see how loving some families were. They hugged over everything like it was no big deal! I noticed families that even hugged EVERY day, for NO reason at all! I wanted to be like that too.

When I had children I vowed to hug them and I turned myself into a “hugger” as well. Now I love hugs! My kids are all big now so hugs are kind of “embarrassing” so I try to reserve them for at home instead of on the sidewalk at school, directly in front of all their friends. 😉

Hugs have amazing benefits. They create a bond, they satisfy a natural need for human touch, they boost mood enhancing brain chemicals, relaxes tension, and hugs create a sense of security.

Have you hugged your loved ones today? I am off to do that right now! So go hug your spouse, kids, friends, or pets, and Live Inspired Now!
