“How To” Go easy on yourself…you’ve come a long way!

General — Donna @ 4:53 pm

feet up

So… in the beginning of this year, I sat alone with a notebook and pen reflecting back on all of the life lessons I’ve learned so far through my experiences….and I want to say thank you so much for letting me share them with you:) It was my intention that you may have found a story and perspective that you can relate to and that it might be able to shift you into a more positive place on your own journey :)

I invite you to join me as we take a look back!!….(in order of my letters to you):

  1. Free yourself….let go of what you can’t control!
  2. Re-write your past to serve you!
  3. Take control of what you can control!
  4. Pain is temporary!
  5. Time is on your side!
  6. Find freedom through acceptance!
  7. Find your happiness NOW…don’t wait!
  8. You are already whole!
  9. Be at peace with your journey!
  10. Let your light shine!
  11.  You are not alone!
  12. Laugh it up!
  13.  You are an amazing creator!
  14.  Get at the cause of what’s bothering you…so that it will go away!
  15. Don’t judge others or yourself!
  16.  Be in the moment!
  17. Let out what you need to express…now!
  18. Meditate!
  19.  Be grateful for the people who have crossed your path!
  20. Let love be the answer!
  21.  Always look for the positive perspectives of everything!
  22.  Own your braveness!
  23. Go easy on yourself…we all have bad days and you’ve come a long way!

And you know what, when all is said and done, I believe it boils down to this:

Don’t worry so damn much….let go of the shit you can’t control…find things and ways to focus on that make you happy…be grateful for each day, person and situation (even the bad ones because they give you some type of opportunity to grow and learn)….live in the moment….find the funny… let love guide you….and be easy on yourself when you have an off day… it’s okay! We all have them! Sometimes we just make too damn much of everything!! Be proud of how far you’ve come…you made it…you’re still here…still alive…give yourself some credit! :)

You are absolutely amazing! With anything and everything you’ve been through…you are STILL here killin’ it!!! This is our life…we all decided to be here in the SAME time and space reality…so we are ALL connected! You may feel that your light dims sometimes…but it NEVER goes out….so get out of your own way and let it shine brightly! I truly believe we are ALL “powerful beyond measure!”….2016 is time to now own it!

Sending MUCH love out to you! I invite you to reflect back on all you moved forward through this year and to look ahead with excitement for all that is yet to come in 2016!

What will you create? What is your life going to look like and feel like this year?!?! I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the journey with me this year!

We are all connected…..

With crazy love and gratitude!!

“How to” Own Your Braveness!(Life lesson #22)

General — Donna @ 11:35 am

braveSo I’m going to share with you what I think (kinda of what I’ve been doing all year right??;) The fact that you decided to be born and fully take part in this thing called life makes you the bravest of the brave! Even with any of your insecurities (and we all have them) you are STILL the bravest of the brave!  The fact that you decided to get off the bench and manifest yourself into this world, not knowing every single twist and turn, is freaking awesome! I believe we came here for the ride of our lives..to get on the roller coaster…knowing it would be scary and fun at the same time…..that we are incredible creators….that we knew there would be “contrast” or stuff we didn’t like, to help us focus on what we DO want to create for ourselves. Then once we knew what we would want, we knew the fun would be in traveling that road to get there….to line up with it until it manifests. So things you want maybe haven’t manifested yet? Well then it’s about getting rid of the resistant thoughts you have about it….and learning to rid yourself of that resistance is an amazing learning journey as well!

We are here to mix it up…to feel every emotion…to create regardless of circumstance…to love…both others and ourselves. Do fears come up? Yes! I’ve felt them of course! Have I ever needed a little kick in the ass to start playing again like I mean it? Yes! Well here is YOUR kick in the ass! (From love of course!:) Newsflash: you’re already in the game…already on the field! You came here to pay FULL OUT regardless of circumstances! And you have been chosen as a starter EVERY time! It’s supposed to be fun! Any time you spend taking your eye off the ball is a waste of time! You are ETERNAL! So PLAY like it! Give it your all!

soccer

You KNEW there would be fun times, crazy times, sad times, amazing times…and you decided to come here anyway not knowing the exact outcome at every turn. That takes someone brave to step up and take that on!

So I encourage you to remember how brave your soul is for even just showing up here, to remember your greatness, to remember that you WANTED to play this game of life! OWN it baby!!! ;)

 

See you on the field!

In my next letter to you….a year long wrap up….you’ve come a long way baby!

We are all in this together!

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” Look for the positive perspectives in your life (Life lesson #21)

General — Tags: , , , — Donna @ 1:29 pm

lookOne of my core beliefs is that the quality of your life and happiness is based on the perspectives that you choose to create on all that has happened and is happening in your life. It’s the perception of your world that creates your world. This is something I have practiced for as long as I can remember. Practicing this way of thinking has gotten me to move through the hard times in my life and has helped to clean up any negative vibes and situations from the past. And I’m writing about this to you because I know from the bottom of my soul that being able to do this for yourself can transform your life and help to release the resistance that you hold in your body.

I even added it to what my kids say at the end of their prayers at night. They add “Always look for the good in every situation:)” And although this next example is a simple one, I was thrilled when my 8 year old daughter put that belief into practice. I was pulling a bowl of gravy out of the refrigerator and spilled it  all over the floor. My daughter who was in the kitchen comes up to me, looks me in the eyes and says “Mommy, it’s not the end of the world, worse things could happen, We’ll just clean it up. And look at it this way…it’s making the kitchen smell good!” All I could do is look at her, take a deep breath and say “you know what? You’re totally right!” and smile. (Not because she offered to help clean it up which would make me smile in itself;) But  I was like OMG! She’s getting it!!!! If she can apply this huge life skill every time something doesn’t go the way she planned in life, she’ll always be okay :)

Look, I’m not saying to not feel the pain if you’re going through a hard time in life- because I do believe sometimes you just have to feel it and move through it. But when you do get to a point where you can take a deep breath and and ask for the greater good to flow through you, I encourage to ask yourself-” what is the good that has to come out of this situation? “And if you ask God to help you find it, if you listen carefully to that voice inside you when you quiet your mind, you’ll find it!

Here’s some examples to maybe help get you started…I’ve personally known people with major illnesses who said it has been a gift because it helped bring public awareness for finding a cure. I’ve seen inspirational  speakers on stage with no arms or legs saying it’s been a gift because they have been able to inspire so many with their story. What about the horrible death of a loved one? For me, it catapulted me into exploring my spirituality. I also tell myself when a challenging situation presents itself (after maybe I calmed down after being pissed off) that this situation is here to teach me something. So I ask, what am I supposed to learn? In a divorce- to not let what others think change who I am. To be more empathetic to others going through life transitions. To not to be judgmental. And most importantly to not hand over the power of controlling my happiness to someone else. In sickness- to not take health for granted. To learn to love my body and feed it with healthy food so the cells can do their jobs. Teenagers- well……they are ALWAYS giving us the opportunity to practice patience, right?? ;)

The people you meet, the situations you have that bother you- why are they here? What’s the good in it? I encourage you to look at all the situations and people form your past that has caused you pain and has been hard to let go of. How do you start letting go? By asking ….“What is or was the good in this situation?”

Change your perception- change your life. And who’s in control of your perception? You are. Enough said. xo

In my next letter to you….you’re the bravest of the brave.

We are all in this together!

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” Let Love be the Answer (Life lesson #20)

General — Donna @ 11:36 am

loveSo I’m sure you’ve heard it before…love is the answer….it’s all about love…love is what we want to feel….love is what we want to find. I know, it’s the ultimate. But what does that mean and how is letting love be the “answer” going to help you in your life?? So here’s how I look at it. It’s the opportunity to feel God’s (the universe, Buddha, whatever you want to call it) love for you, to let you know you’re not alone. Yeah, so stick with me here. If God is love, that means every time you look at something…let’s say a sunset, let’s say the mountains, or some kind of nature scene and it make you feel good and at peace- that’s God loving you, wanting you to feel love through that which he has created….wanting you to feel surrounded by love.

Let’s say you have a relationship with someone….a significant other, a child, a friend. When they are there for you, when they say something that uplifts you….I believe that’s God giving you love through them. It’s that feeling of someone seeing the good in you- wanting to connect with you. I believe God speaks through the people and situations that uplift you in life- the reminder that you are loved and not alone.

And loving yourself- the most important of all. Loving yourself enough to not let anyone walk all over you or take advantage of you. Loving yourself enough to set boundaries and to let go of people in your life that look to pull you down because of their own insecurities. And on the flip side, loving yourself enough to take care of yourself….thorough the thoughts you tell yourself…through the way you take care of and feed your mind, body and soul. Through the time you take to rejuvenate yourself. And if you don’t feel worthy, well I’ve got news for ya….you are pinching yourself off from the love that is trying to flow through you and that has always been there waiting for you to receive it-for you to remember the beautiful and amazing creation and creator you are.

We often look at love as if it has to be from a significant other…which is beautiful :) But what if they are not here yet?? How are you going to choose to feel in the meantime? Love can’t be pinned all on them. You have the opportunity to allow it to flow to you from other areas of your life and in a variety of ways…and most importantly, from inside yourself.  It’s there…just waiting for you to accept it  and allow it in. That flow of love IS IN YOU no matter what. Always has been, always will be. When you feel disconnected or bad about yourself, you are pinching yourself off from that flow. So STOP IT!! ;) Any negative thoughts about yourself in simple b.s.! You were born amazing and are amazing! You obviously just forgot and let other people dictate and project their own unworthiness on you. It was never about you…it was always about them! 

So my intention is that you remember your greatness again today! Fall in love with yourself! You were born pure positive energy- and when you live in that light- that’s when you feel good! That’s when the God inside you is saying …ahhh yes! This is how you are meant to feel! Thanks for remembering the phenomenal creation that you are and always have been!

And with that, I’m sending TONS of love to you today!!! xoxox

In my next letter to you….“Flipping perspectives!”

We are all in this together!

“HOW TO” Be grateful for the people who have crossed your path (Life lesson #19)

General — Donna @ 2:16 pm

downloadThose people that came into your life and for whatever reason left. Those people who are in your life right now driving you crazy or those who are bringing out the best in you. In my life, everyone who I’ve met, whether it was an intimate relationship, a friendship, a child, and yes even an ex….has had a spiritual purpose in my life. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! :) I have spent time thinking of everyone who has influenced my life….and our paths have crossed for a reason. Now if you’re pissed at the person, sometimes it’s hard to figure out what that reason is…but spend some time away from them, get in a good place, and then re-visit…believe me you’ll find it:) But holding on to anger for ANY person is just hurting yourself. Easier said than done, I know. But if you can do this for yourself, it will kind of make it okay…kind of make you realize it all made sense.

Maybe that person came into your life to teach you something about yourself. Maybe to make you understand that you have to set boundaries….maybe to teach you that if they say hurtful things, that you need to remember how amazing your spirit truly is and to not let anyone take that away from you no matter what. Maybe they came into your life to make you look in a mirror and force you to see your beauty…maybe to remind you to  play the music you still have inside you….maybe to inspire you in a variety of ways that you’ve never thought of till you had met them….maybe just to remind you to be silly, laugh and to not take yourself and life so seriously! Maybe you didn’t feel such a shift in your life when crossing paths with someone, but maybe it was for you to have and impact on them that time and you’ll never even know what it is unless they tell you.  Whatever the reason, there is always a reason….whether it was for “a reason, season or lifetime.”  Whatever the amount of time and whoever they were, I encourage you to reflect back and find that reason, and make peace with that person in your mind. All relationships are spiritual on some level…that’s how I look at in in my life anyway :)

That being said, thanks for reading this and crossing my path… I hope I’ve been able to throw out to you some different perspectives on life that have made you shift a little in a way that makes you happy…just sayin…. :)

“HOW TO” MEDITATE…yes it works! (Life Lesson #18)

General — Tags: , , — Donna @ 9:57 pm

meditationThe b.s. non-stop chatter in your head that makes you afraid to do something. The b.s. non-stop chatter in your head that plays like a broken record about the past and about what might happen in the future. The b.s.  non-stop chatter that tells you you’re not good enough and keeps you pinched off from realizing the fullness of your greatness. The conversations you have in your head with that invisible person telling them off in the past (things you wanted to say) or conversations about what you would say if you confronted them in the future (things you would like to say). Sound familiar? Ever dealt with that? I have. It’s almost impossible to deal with what you have in front of you and live in the now when your brain is busy playing make-believe with your past and your future!

That’s where meditation REALLY is the answer to tuning that stuff out so you can get the clarity in life that you so totally deserve! :) When I was at a point in my life when my path was unclear, and I was going through so many transitions, my thoughts went on overload and I had a hard time getting clear on my life in the present. That’s when I was like…okay…it’s time to learn about this meditation stuff that I always hear about. For me I wanted to be guided by someone else on how to do this, so I found a mediation center where they teach it to you, and I went. And I loved it:) Over time, I would walk out of that place in peace….with my mind NOT racing…and wow did that feel awesome!:) To be able to walk around in the present and experience life in the present….again, awesome!  It didn’t mean that unwanted thoughts wouldn’t show up again, but now I had a tool to calm them down. And since I got to peace in my mind once, I knew I would be able to chill out and get “there” again…..and the security of that just made things so much better:)

As I practiced more and more it was kind of exciting because as I would bring my mind to a place of calmness and quiet, I would “get” the answers to questions I had about my life in the most purest form….it was just this “knowing” of what was the right thing to do for me in different situations. I was able to “hear” what my inner being knew to be true on so many topics. I learned to not always react (and I’m Italian so “reacting” was in my blood! ;) but rather to first get back to the centeredness that meditation gave me before I made a decision, a move, or said something. And sometimes the answer was to do nothing and let it just pass through me instead of catching it and holding it inside of me. Sometimes it was looking at the situation from a broader more spiritual perspective. Sometimes it was about setting boundaries and not interacting with what I was encountering.

I also use meditation now when I have a big decision to make….yes as corny as it sounds, I’ll “meditate on it”. The idea is to quiet the mind, line yourself up with your spiritual self, THEN make the decision. It’s from that higher centered self that the best decisions are made because it’s not muddied with all those crazy thoughts and fears going through your head. You just “know”…because you “know“.

So how to start the practice??? My best advice to you is to go to a local meditation place (which is often free) that has classes on meditation. For me, being in a class like structure worked. If you rather start alone, Oprah along with Deepak Chopra have these great guided meditations, just about 20 minutes long each day. I think they are great and I’ve done lots of them by just getting up 20 minutes earlier than my family. You can find them here. At a minimum, I encourage you to get up 10 minutes earlier than usual. Find a comfortable place to sit and focus on your breath in and out through your nose. This gives your mind something to focus on other than your thoughts. And when those thoughts creep in, and they will, don’t get mad or judge yourself…it’s okay….just let them float by on a cloud like my teacher taught me:) Little by little….you can do it! You DESERVE to experience this practice in your life:)

Namaste’ (The God in me sees the God in you:)

In my next letter to you….“The people you meet on your path….why did they show up???”

“HOW TO” Express and create….now! (Life Lesson # 17)

General — Tags: , — Donna @ 11:08 am

create

You know those things you always wanted to create or express that are laying dormant deep inside of you? That business? That home project? That book? That song? That art? Something you always wanted to try or do? Do you have something to say? Something you want to express? Well just like the late  inspirational Wayne Dyer always said…”Don’t die with your music still in you!”

As my life goes on, it sometimes does hit me that this specific lifetime is not going to last forever. I have all this inspiration in me and it would be sad if I didn’t manifest it, or at least give it my best shot! I’m realizing, as silly and simple as this might sound, at some point you have to stop “goal- setting” about it and just start DOING it! :) So I’m taking up guitar, taking up the drums, writing song lyrics, taking pictures, drawing pictures, continuing with my book, continuing with creating a movie, setting up cool experiences…whether alone or with my family, decorating and making the environment in my house that I always wanted, growing my business…there’s just so much creative stuff to do! I’m also a single mom of 3…so I’m obviously not doing it all at once lol…but I’m feeling it, doing it….a little bit of each…or sometimes a LOT of one thing I want to do in one shot. And when you focus on doing things that mean something to you, that’s when you start feeling fulfilled :)

So you. What do you want to express or do or create? Don’t be scared to admit it! Let it out! Is it something profound? Something creative? Something silly? Something fun? Something that you always wanted to try “just once” ;) ? You wouldn’t be inspired to something if it wasn’t meant to be manifested.You’re never too young and you’re never too old! There are plenty of examples of people doing amazing things at amazing ages! Don’t worry what people may think….it’s not about them! This is YOUR time…YOUR life! :) And guess what, as you start to express yourself, doing things you’ve always wanted to do, the rest of your life gets exciting too! What seemed “impossible” in life starts feeling “possible”:)

I always look at life like a playground!…so much to play with while we are here! Just look around! Want to do something? Try something? Well then run to it!! Start playing! Start putting yourself out there and expressing that stuff inside you….make sure you put it all out and leave it here! No regrets baby!! Play full out!

See you on the playground!!! ;)

We are all in this together!

In my next letter to you…“What would meditation REALLY do for you?”

“HOW TO” BE IN THE MOMENT (Life Lesson #16)

General — Donna @ 8:35 am

nowNot yesterday, not tomorrow…right now…yeah right now–that’s it…that’s all you’ve got. Wouldn’t it be nice to shut that negative chatter about the past right up?!?! And how about worrying about the future all the time..well THAT sucks doesn’t it?!?! No need to do either of those things because it doesn’t matter! The past is over, the future is not here yet…so all you have is NOW. And that’s just the truth…no need to torture yourself for no reason. Got it??? That being said, let’s talk about NOW. Do you know that’s where ALL of your power is?!?! If you want something different for your future, it can only be manifested through what you focus on NOW. Don’t like your reality? Well the good news is that’s based on the thoughts and feelings of the past. Which means that when you pay attention as to what you are focusing on today, it can change your reality for tomorrow.

This is one of my huge lessons because in the past I’ve had thoughts that were non-stop that were not serving me….just driving me crazy. Until, through a lot of reading and meditation, I finally asked myself… why I am choosing to torture myself??? So I learned to let go of a lot, especially since none of it was real and relevant in my present moment. If you’re breathing right now you’re alive right? (I hope so;) Well then ask yourself in this EXACT moment, what problems do you have? All you are doing is reading this letter I wrote to you. Your past or your future can’t touch you right now. Forget what happened in the past….forget about the future…JUST for a moment….what problem do you have right NOW? I mean RIGHT in this moment??……Exactly….nothing…..and that’s the starting point. Now add to that a question…. What are you grateful for right NOW? Your breathing? Your heart beating? Your sight? Your mind? You’re creativity? Your drive? Your ability to love? Your clarity because you are not thinking about the past or future? Put all your power in your “right now”! Feels good right?? Now move forward with THAT:) And the next time you get caught up (and we all do) I encourage you to take a deep breath, be present, and go back to these questions to refocus you on the now….because now is all we really have….why mess it up for ourselves? You are soooooo magnificent…soooooo powerful…..sooooo beautiful (or handsome;)…yes, right now…you are :) So….. what are you going to do NOW??? :)

We are all in this together!

“HOW TO” stop judging others…and yourself (Life Lesson #15)

General — Donna @ 8:58 am

story2

Someone’s got an attitude….someone is making life choices that you don’t agree with…someone looks different….is acting different. Have you ever felt like nobody understands you? Nobody gets you? Ever say…if they only knew what I’m dealing with and what I’m feeling THEN they would get it! And if they THINK they know, they really have NO idea becasue they are not ME! They are not walking in my shoes on a day to day basis! I have sooooo experienced that going through a divorce and being judged…hearing people say :”Everything looked so  good from the outside…what the hell are you doing? Why are you changing everything??…people judging me as a mother, as a person” But nobody understood what I was going through on the inside….for years… The sentence I kept on repeating in my head over and over to get me past it all was: “I am being true to myself…and if I’m true to myself,  everything will eventually fall into place…I know I am a good person..so just trust that.”  I’m just telling you this because I get it.

Out there in the world, we don’t know what people go home to…we don’t know the thoughts racing in their head every minute of their day….we don’t know what they feel about themselves..we just don’t know. And only if we walked in THEIR shoes, like they say, would we have that glimpse of compassion and understanding. So instead of having to walk in their shoes why not just try to understand that they are doing the best they can with what they are emotionally capable of at the time.

Because isn’t that true of yourself? Aren’t you doing the best you can with what you know and are capable of in the moment? Do we make “not the best choices” sometimes? Yes, but that’s because sometimes that’s the only choice we see. But eventually, when you know better, you can do better…and that’s growth. We  are all going through different shit at different times…sometimes everything is awesome and we are on top of the world, and sometimes we get stuck and feel there’s no way out.

At their core, I really believe people are good…some just lose their way- but it doesn’t mean they can’t find their way back to who they truly are:) So maybe next time you feel like judging (because we all do sometimes)…why not send a probably much needed prayer and good energy their way instead? :) And as far as yourself? Give yourself a break! You’re doing the best you can…and as you move along your path , different realizations will be uncovered for you and you can grow from there. Don’t be so hard on yourself…you’re awesome:)…you’re beautiful:)…you’re living your emotional journey…and there are so many ups and downs and choices to be made (whew!! lol) …and I know you’re doing the best you can…and for today, right now, that is enough :)

We are all in this together!

In my next letter to you…being in the moment….why it works…

With crazy love and gratitude!

“HOW TO” Get at the cause of what’s been bothering you (Life Lesson #14)

General — Donna @ 10:43 pm

mirrorSo, you know that situation or that person that has been giving you some underlying stress…for like…. a while now?? Has it manifested in your mind not being able to focus? In health problems? Have you suppressed it so deeply that you convinced yourself that  it doesn’t bother you anymore? Well I’ve done all that in the past. But what I’ve learned is to bring it to the top. To deal with it, or him, or her so you can REALLY let it go. I’ve confronted an adult bully…..who backed down….I’ve finally gone to the doctor to check my voice that has been getting a little hoarse after suppressing for months…worrying that there was a growth or something….then mad  of myself for even thinking that way…to finally just dealing with my fear, going to a doctor today to find there is nothing there…to saying sorry to people I needed to say sorry to, whether they forgave me or not…You know, just dealing with shit…bringing it to the top. And after confronting the things that bothered me, I felt soooo much better.

You may have situations or people in your life that you have to bring to the top…I encourage you to just do it…face your fears and: d e a l  w i t h  i t ! It’s not worth it to keep shit bottled up. And yes, it takes courage because you may not know the outcome, or may not know how people will respond. But it also won’t be eating you up inside anymore. Only when you deal with it face to face can you then truly set it free. And you know what? Sometimes it may not even be that you have to physically talk to someone. It may be that you need to confront yourself….be honest with yourself  over something. Think about it or journal about it…come to some kind of honest conclusion with yourself , for yourself. Burying it isn’t the answer…it’s just going to manifest in some other way…and you don’t deserve that! You’re better than that! No person or no situation is worth your health or worth your peace of mind. So my friend….what do you have to bring to the top??? Think about it…..

We are all in this together!

In my next letter to you…judging others…judging yourself.

With crazy love and gratitude!
