Don’t forget to be grateful!

For almost a year now (since the three of us created our vision boards and hung them up) I’ve asked you almost every day to think of the 3 things you’re grateful for. This simple act of awareness does two things:

First, it opens up your mind and heart to those things that are good in your life. No matter what dark cloud hovers over you at that time, you’re reminded of what matters most and to get over the dark and bring in the light. In the most simplest of terms, you turn that frown upside down!

Second, it brings you closer to Heaven and getting those things you desire. God (our father), Jesus (our savior), our angels (our protectors) and the Universe (everything around us) will feel your appreciation, and when this happens, all good comes to you.

Have you ever heard of the saying, “you get what you give”? Well, it’s very true. You must give love to receive love. You must give to those who need to receive what you need. You must think positive for positive things to happen in your life.

This is the basic premise of the Law of Attraction. Put the things out there that you want to receive. And constantly thank God, angels and the Universe for your awesome life and for the things you desire, and watch your life change.

If you do this, you will get what you desire. So keep looking at your vision boards; visualize or see yourself doing all of those thing and getting all of those things you want. And ALWAYS be grateful for what you have.

Cuz just when you think your life is bad, someone else’s is always worse. And at the end of the day, while you might not have everything you want at that moment, life is pretty damn good.

Be bold

Don’t let the past define you

Solana and Sienna,

Inevitably you will make mistakes – things you regret. But you need to learn to love yourself and forgive yourself, as well as others. Always keep love at the forefront of your decisions.

Here’s a lesson on this from something I read:

“You ruin your life by letting your past govern it. It is common for certain things in life to happen to you. There will be heartbreak, confusion, days where you feel like you aren’t special or purposeful. There are moments that will stay with you, words that will stick. You cannot let these define you – they were simply moments, they were simply words. If you allow for every negative event in your life to outline how you view yourself, you will view the world around you negatively.

“If you don’t allow yourself to move past what happened, what was said, what was felt, you will look at your future with that lens, and nothing will be able to breach that judgment. You will keep on justifying, reliving, and fueling a perception that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.”

The bottom line here is, you are what you believe. The self-fulfilling prophecy is more than just a notion. So love yourself; forgive yourself; love and laugh often.

Ustedes son my vida!
