“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Magic is all around us.
“Magic exists. Who can doubt it, when there are rainbows and wildflowers, the music of the wind and the silence of the stars? Anyone who has loved has been touched by magic. It is such a simple and such an extraordinary part of the lives we live.”
Magic exists in being aware of our surroundings.
“The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.”
In conclusion on magic
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Lean in to all your desire, make your dreams a reality.
Life is not a checklist, it is a collection of moments. Have a collection with no regrets. A collection you are proud of.
Today is your day …
The reality is everyday is your day.
Everyday is a gift and everyday holds potential.
Today is your day inspiration
Everyday holds new potential and reinvention.
“You have a clean slate every day you wake up. You have a chance every single morning to make that change and be the person you want to be. You just have to decide to do it. Decide today’s the day. Say it: this is going to be my day.”
If you are not present today, you’ll look back and miss what was today.
“Enjoy today. It’s one of the “good old days” you will miss in the future!”
We are in control of our today and the direction we choose to go.
“Congratulations! Today is your day You’re off to great places You’re off and away
You’ve got brains in your head You’ve got feet in your shoes You can steer yourself any Direction you choose

Quotes on building self confidence
Self confidence is accepting yourself and not needing anyone else’s approval.

Self Confidence is built in actions.
“Have confidence that if you have done a little thing well, you can do a bigger thing well too.”
Self confidenceis knowing whatever happens, you will be okay.
“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
Louisa May Alcott
Self confidence is having your mind on your side.
“With confidence, you have won before you have started.”
Self confidence is being brave.
“Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do.”
When we travel, we undertake personal development and self growth. We open our mind, heart and soul. We see the world in a new way. We expand our knowledge. We broaden our horizon. We thrive in the unknown and embrace ambiguity. We become more confident in ourselves. We reinvent ourselves. We experience unforgettable moments.
Our mind becomes sharpened.
As you can see it is a vibrant environment – full of passion and life.
Be a voice not an echo. Let us ponder that thought.
“It only takes one voice, at the right pitch, to start an avalanche.”
At a young age we are conditioned to be ‘normal’ to follow as everyone else does. The typical life path. Grow up, get a job, grow a career, fall in love, have a family… we are moulded into societal norms.
Do not be afraid to be your true self.
Do not be afraid of being different.
It is what makes you special.
The origins of ‘be a voice not an echo’ could very well stem from Greek mythology. Zeus was an almighty God of the sky and thunder. He was enamoured by the nymphs on Earth, particularly one by the name of Echo. Echo loved to chat and used her gift of conversation to distract his wife Hera from the affairs he was having. When Hera caught onto this she took away what was most important to Echo, her voice.
Don’t get caught out in the role of Echo.
Our voice is a gift. You are a gift.
You are so valuable.
You are uniquely you, there is no one else in this world like you.
“When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.”
Shannon L. Alder
“It only takes one voice, at the right pitch, to start an avalanche.”
“The human voice is the organ of the soul”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“We all have a voice. Some a whisper, some a roar. If you can roar, roar for others. If you can only whisper, keep trying. Every roar started small.”
““Throughout human history, our greatest leaders and thinkers have used the power of words to transform our emotions, to enlist us in their causes, and to shape the course of destiny. Words can not only create emotions, they create actions. And from our actions flow the results of our lives.”
Our thoughts hold energy. A single thought can spark a whirlwind of action.
The greatest power we have is in being conscious of thoughts. Our internal will. Will we listen to the thoughts? Will we provide a counter thought? Does this thought hold merit?
With a conscious will, we can use our thoughts like seeds to plant in the garden that is our mind. Over time with love and care, these seeds will prosper, grow and build strong foundations. On this same wavelength, we can consciously choose not to feed thoughts that drain us, that are not helpful.
Your power and potential begins in being aware of your thoughts. This awareness has limitless potential in elevating your life. It is the start of a beautiful life long journey. Consciousness.
On the power of our thoughts
Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about.
~ Stephen Richards
You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
It’s not the situation that’s causing your stress, it’s your thoughts, and you can change that right here and now. You can choose to be peaceful right here and now. Peace is a choice, and it has nothing to do with what other people do or think.
GERALD G. JAMPOLSKY, MD
The universe is a cobweb; minds are spiders.
Can we control our thoughts?
We are the masters of our mind. We control our mind.
Yes we can be triggered. Yes there are external influences. Yes we can be swayed.
However, no one has the power to put thoughts in our head without our permission. Our mind is the gatekeeper – do we allow this thought? Is this thought of merit? Is it true?
One tool and resource that I hugely advocate and passionately believe in are affirmations. Affirmations can be used to influence our thoughts is our will and determination..
They can provide a conscious focus for our power and desire to change.
The power of our will, the power of our desire.
Affirmations are powerful statements that we usually repeat to compel us into action or a different state of mind.
Equally, they are a conscious statement we make to ourselves.
They do indeed help us with a positive, purposeful and growth orientated mindset.
Some of the many causes of work-related stress include long hours, heavy workload, job insecurity and conflicts with co-workers or bosses.
Symptoms include a drop in work performance, depression, anxiety and sleeping difficulties.

What is self love?
Self love is how we feel about ourselves. It is linked to our self esteem. It is caring and having regard for your own well-being and happiness. It is how we experience ourselves.
From my understand of it, self love is:
♥ Accepting yourself. Your worthiness. Honouring yourself. Being true to who you are.
♥ Authenticity. Knowing that you have flaws and that is okay, being at peace with it.
♥ Listening to your needs. Understanding what we want. Choosing ourself without comprising or sacrificing when we truly do not want to do so. This resource may be of help, A guide on how to use love languages. Love languages may be of use to you in understanding yourself better.
♥ Taking care yourself. Your well-being. Nourishing our mind, body and soul. “An empty lantern provides no light. Self-care is the fuel that allows your light to shine brightly.” – Unknown
♥ An influential factor in decision making such as the actions we take, the partners we choose for a relationship, the behaviour we accept from ourselves and others.
♥ How we may feel about a soul mate or best friend in life – channeling that loving energy to ourselves. How we would treat them – with patience, love, respect, kindness and understanding.
“Love yourself unconditionally, just as you love those closest to you despite their faults.”
♥ Trusting yourself. Listening to your intuition and gut feelings. Knowing that you always make the best decision for yourself at that time. We know ourselves best. No one can self love for us.
Quotes that inspire and speak to self love
“Worthy now. Not if. Not when. We are worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is.”
“Self respect, self worth and self love, all start with self. Stop looking outside of yourself for your value.”
“It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your happiness a priority. It’s a necessity.”
“A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”
“It’s all about falling in love with yourself and sharing that love with someone who appreciates you, rather than looking for love to compensate for a self love deficit.”
+ To empower you. To be fearless in the pursuit of your desires and dreams. To feel alive with fire. A gentle reminder that affirmations are one tool and they work powerfully when you truly believe in them and pair them with action. Read more here.

Why do you think you feel this way?
Are there any moments or memories that the affirmation are evoking?
Does the affirmation remind you of an event in your life? Your family? Your friends? A relationship?
