Nowadays, we seem to be doing so much – all at the same time. Those around us are constantly demanding more of our time, efforts, and even our money. In return, we continue to yield even more. Being the resourceful creatures we are, we find ourselves wearing many hats such as wife/girlfriend, mummy, career/businesswoman, the older/eldest sister, student, friend, counselor, and much more – all at the same time. We just seem to keep pouring out. (more…)
Do you find yourself constantly sacrificing yourself for others, to your own detriment?
Are you drained from continuously ‘doing’ without the necessary investment to keep you going?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, my question to you is how long do you think you will last running on empty? (more…)
Let me be the woman I was created to be. You might not ‘get’ me or understand the rational behind what I do but that’s ok. But please don’t feel the need to change me into something I am not. Rather, make the effort to understand me. Better still; accept me the way I am. I’m not saying I have it all figured out or I’m any where near perfect but I’m a work in progress.
Do you find it difficult to say ‘no’? Feel guilty when you do? Maybe you find yourself bending over backward to please others despite the negative impact it has on your life. If so, I believe you will find my five commandments liberating. So here goes:
Have you considered the fact that your thoughts play a huge part in the person we see today? If all you see in the mirror is a fat, ugly, useless woman or even a failure, those things are who you will eventually become. There is a proverb in the bible that says, “as a man thinketh, so is he”. So could the reason for where you are today be due to what you have been harbouring on the inside? Maybe you can’t see a way out of your current situation – after all, things look kinda bleak right now. Maybe you have tried and failed so many times, that you are now beginning to think that what ‘they’ said was true – about you never amount to anything.
Well, princess, please hold that thought!
I know it may be hard to see beyond your current circumstances but no situation is permanent. Moreover, I don’t care what anyone has said about you but you are special and you have a lot to offer. Therefore, I challenge you to change your thought patterns. Make a decision to adopt a positive stance on life and develop the ability to see yourself doing great things in your mind – regardless of your current situation. You may want to affirm yourself every day using affirmation statements to help you along the way.
Princess, show me a successful woman and you can bet your bottom dollar that over time (the good, bad and the ugly), she has convinced herself internally that she is a winner, all things are possible and she can be a success. Don’t let your past failures be your focus. Learn to look beyond them.
Are you willing to change your destiny by changing your thoughts? Please do because we are counting on you, Princess.
Yes, I have to admit that this pioneering princess has been juggling a few things but I recognise that this was the season for it. However, seasons don’t last for ever (thank God) and I am now declaring a new season quietness, stillness and rest. This does not mean no more work but a season with less juggling, pushing and pouring out. What it means for me is a season of slowing down and pouring in to recharge ones batteries for the exciting new year. So just in case you come across me and I look completely chilled out, you now know why. This Princess means business!
