A grateful heart is a happy heart. You do, desire a happy heart, right…
With that being said, happiness is an inside job. No one can make you happy. You can feel the emotional outpouring of a happy feeling and exude joy; yes, but only you can bring this forth.
However, so many say do this, don’t do that. Oh hell, no we won’t go down that path.
I AIN’T GOT TIME
So, I am supposed to be happy. Sure, Right and OMG, not another dumb person telling me what I should or shouldn’t do.
Heck, what do I do with this anxious, dread and worry?
Aww, this is where it can get tricky, and yet it doesn’t have to. Have you ever heard the idea about working smarter not harder? I don’t know about you, but I like things easy, peasy and to be done with it. I ain’t got time for all that drama and nonsense.
ANXIETY, WORRY DOUBT BOREDOM
Those are killer of dreams. These are keeper of cells (When Egos Feed); think prison cell.
You do not deserve to stay frozen unable to move. Break free and get a movin.
TREAT YOUR HEART LIKE A COMPASS
Place your hands over your heart. Do you feel that? That is your heart beat. It keeps ticking, so you keep living.
Yet, are you loving?
Are you loving life?
Are you loving you?
It is too easy to get swept up in life’s drama or distracted from that which you love. Yes, this includes you, too.
You my dear heart are your greatest love. Treat your heart like it is the most precious love of all. You are your most precious love. Be like Dolly Parton and declare “I Will Always Love You.” Many know this song via Whitney Houston and she did an amazing job, but the original song writer is dear ole Dolly.
Now, let’s get in touch with your heart and point this true north. Many mystics believe that your heart is your true north. When you align with your heart, you align fully with Spirit/Divine/whomever you speak with.
So how do you do this? Simple, let go of anything that is stopping you. Ready, set, let it go…let it flow. Once you tap into your true Divine heart is when life aligns to its greatest source: Your Heart.
HA, EASY PEASY
Natasha, I’ve tried everything from self-loathing to self-harm, pills, alchie and ya. Okay, I am not here to criticize nor judge you! Nope, I am not. However, I can help guide you to your true north. Creative Self Expression is a great way to connect with you, your heart and soul. Paint, Write, Mediation and much more can help bring out what is locked behind bars.
Also, forget perfect. That is such a lie! It will hurt ya every time. Let go of the perfect idea and allow yourself to get messy. Go for that meditative hike, paint with your fingers, dig in the dirt and so much more.
p.s. did ya notice that much of this does not include electronics? Those can distract you from hearing your heart. Put ’em down and get outdoors; even if it is for 5 mins.
HOLDER OF DREAMS
Your heart is the keeper of your dreams. When you have a grateful heart is when your inner happy peace exudes and overflows. Life seems simpler, easier; it is almost by magic that everything just syncs. Easy Peasy Breezy!
Therefore, getting to your true north is via your heart. This is when head, heart, and spirit triangulate in the perfect formation. You are in alignment with your truth. You’ve let go of things in your way, and things manifest and flow to you.
So, my dear heart where is your magic wand. Aww, it is in your heart; you are the soul keeper of your heart; this is your inner map to Spiritual Growth. This is your map to deep inner peace, joy, and harmony. Let it go, and let it flow.
Bippty, boppity boo…now it’s up to you!
Go forth dear heart and live the life of your dreams…

Recently I witnessed why You should revel in your headstrong daughter:
The farmer had pre-made 1 pound batches that I was not interested in; and as I was awaiting for an answer from the farmer, her daughter stepped in, “Aww, Mom really sometimes, the customer is right; she just wants half a pound of asparagus; money is money and if we do this, she’ll remember and come back; we need good costumers.” This young lady is about 16 years old; some of the more mature ladies were off put by her statement.
A few moments later, I encounter a “headstrong” female toddler who wanted to bounce her ball to see how high it went. As I tried to stop the ball from rolling into the street, her parents stood looking on in an embarrassed state. I smiled and said, “Please do me a huge favor; love her strength and independence; she is a most blessed joy and one day will empower others.” The uncle smiles and nods his head in agreement with a quick flash I add, “Dance with her; and she will dance with you.”
Bring It On
I knew that I was being reminded of who I once was. My family did not relish in the favor of my independent strength; rather I was the last of the adage that children should be seen and not heard: the rendered statement-sit down and shut up echoing throughout my childhood.
Here is why we should enable our willful girls. Those determined girls blossom into powerful ladies. They are a blessing and a joy, and help others to shine in their power.
There was once a time where women were seen and not heard; in fact, there are many cultures and countries where this still occurs.
Reflect back to a moment to when you wish you had you communicated with your true voice and spoke from an authentic place, but then you did not. Now look back to a moment when you expressed your true, authentic, powerful voice and how this felt. It does not mean shouting or being aggressive. This means to feel empowered and enabled. Being able to say what you feel and not forgiving for having made a statement that resonates with your heart and soul.
An unwavering girl knows her own power and voice and she is not afraid to use it. How is this a bad thing? Or rather is it, because you wanted your idea to be the voice of reason as the “adult” or the one in charge; hence that is a control aspect.
Step back for a moment; disempower the willfulness of a girl and now she is complacent; her voice unheard and not expressed; her shine has dulled and another has control over her. Do you wish that to be your daughter? This is what begins to happen in the sense of domestic violence. DV can be emotional, mental, physical, sexual and so forth. Do you wish to teach your daughter to release her power to another, dull her shine and diminish her sparkle or worse her life?
This is not to say that everyone should be voicing whatever pops into their thoughts, that is where wisdom comes into play. Teach our youth, our girls how to use their voice in a positive manner.Because if they are brash and harsh this can swing into a whole other manner of aggression and isolation.
Let’s teach our girls to use their empowered voices. Let’s help enable their strengths and authentic selves.
Most importantly let us teach them their value and worth.

When a person feels worthy and value this helps illuminate them to a who new light and level to help this world. Let us provide this manner for our “willful” girls who blossom and grow into amazing powerful young women.
Yes!Natasha, I would like you to help my daughter be her best!
A Great way to begin the discussion with a young lady or a better understanding for all ages.
