Consider this . . . certain words should be removed from our vocabulary because they hold us back from doing things—words like but; maybe; can I? These are limiting words and words are powerful. They affect our thoughts, how we act, and how we see ourselves.
Whenever you say something, it leaves an imprint in your brain that triggers your thoughts; your feelings and beliefs.
Everything starts with a dream, or a thought, that develops into an idea. What starts to bring these ideas into fruition—words.
When you say, “Can I?” – you’re questioning your ability.
“But” is one of the biggest excuse words around. Think about it. What normally follows out of your mouth or thoughts when you use the word “but”? Excuses!
“Maybe” is procrastinating! It gives you a reason to put something off, and off, and off.
All these words downplay your thoughts about yourself and your abilities. They’re negative and are escape routes that deplete your success.
So, be careful with your words. They do affect you. If you find yourself starting to say these words, CANCEL them immediately from your vocabulary, you’ll be so much better off.
Life is a mystery. But what you do leads you to where you want to go and then the mystery will slowly begin to unravel.
If you take a moment every day when it's most peaceful and quiet for you (I prefer early in the mornings because my mind hasn’t been cluttered by the day’s events), write down what you’re doing with your life, and I mean put down everything—relationships, work, family, friends, plans for the future—you’ll slowly start to see a pattern of where you really want to go or what you feel you need to work on.
Mind you, this might take a while; it just depends on how deep you want go. My advice, the deeper you explore the better. By doing this you’ll discover where you want to be in your life and what direction you want to take.
Remember, be brutally honest with yourself. This is Your Life!
"Journal therapy is all about using personal material as a way of documenting an experience, and learning more about yourself in the process," Kathleen Adams, a psychotherapist and author of Journal to the Self, told the Huffington Post. "It lets us say what's on our minds and helps us get — and stay — healthy through listening to our inner desires and needs."
I discovered that life works best when you live it the way you want and love, truly love, yourself. I have found that by writing down whatever is bugging me or on my mind, a pattern and/or solution(s) slowly starts to fall into place. The best part, I’m slowly unraveling the mystery of my life!

Never stop Dreaming, Believing, and Creating,
Fairy tales are beautiful, but they’re not real. Yet, one cannot help wonder . . . can I make my own fairy tale and have it be just as magical?
I’d like to think yes, I can Create My Own Fairy Tale.
For everyone out there, I don’t care what age you are, find what you love and follow it with all your heart. Don’t worry if it will work out or not, just follow your passion. There will be bumpy roads along the way. They even have them in fairy tales—everything seems to be going great and then bam, the ugly sisters or evil stepmom steps in and sets out to destroy the fantasy. Even fairy tales have bridges to cross or mountains to climb to get to the ‘Happily Ever After.’
So, get out your journal and start by first writing, “What is my passion?” Then let your dream unfold—you never know where it's going to take you, but if your true to your passion it will be incredible.
Here’s to your ‘Happily Ever After’ with or without the Prince or Princess!
