No matter what your day starts out to be, no matter what your moments bring about, no matter what unexpectedly pops up in your day, you can choose to have a good day.

You can experience each moment, yet keep in mind that you can choose positive thoughts and feelings. Even in those moments that are frustrating, upsetting, anxiety driven, and stress filled.  You can take a moment to breath in a positive vibration and breathe out the emotion that gives you a resistant thought and feeling.

No one said that you have to feel negative just because an experience feels negative. Creating a positive thought and feeling can be done at any time.

And if you can’t find the positive in an experience, just trust and know that there is one.

Keep thinking positive my friend.

How do you feel about your life?  Do you ever blame others or experiences for your unhappiness?  Do you ever say to others or yourself, “If only I could make more money, then I would be happy.”  Or ‘If it wasn’t for my boss, I could be happy.”

No one or no thing is responsible for your happiness.  Sure, they may make it more challenging for you to find those happy vibrations but really the only one responsible for your happiness is you.

You can be happy even if life isn’t exactly as you want it as of yet. You can find things to be grateful for and appreciate while you are working toward a life goal. You can build happiness vibrations right now and those vibrations will bring you more of the same.

By blaming another or an experience, you are creating blame and blame comes from that negative list of thoughts and feelings that create exactly what you don’t want.

So how about choosing happiness today? You’ll be surprised how many things you have to be happy about when you open up to seeing the positive in your life.

Where you take your thoughts on a daily basis is where you are taking your life itself. So whether you are having a great day or a bad day, you are creating that next moment, that next day, that next month.  How you feel and how you think is taking you to that next moment. The more you feel and think positive, the more positive experiences will come into your life.

Be conscious of where your thoughts go and do your best to focus in on all that feels good and positive. If you have an experience that is less than positive, then remind yourself to handle it the best you can but with a positive mindset.

Take moments to focus in on what you are grateful for.

Every grateful thought will build a grateful filled life…every little thought my friend.

Some will say that they will be happy if only…  They are waiting for what they think would make them happy.  Until then, their happiness is here and there but never constant.

What if I were to tell you that happiness, full on true happiness, is in your life at this moment?  Happiness comes into life when we recognize the happy moments that we have right now. By saying your happiness will come when everything is just perfect in the future, you are creating a vibration that is saying that you will only be happy in the future and in the future it will stay. You are creating a vibration that happiness will come only in the future but each time you think it, you aren’t thinking about happiness in the now, so this can mean the future happiness will elude you. By opening up to happiness now, you will be creating a happy successful future.

Wouldn’t it be better to find happiness now so that the future moments will be in happiness as well?

Where is that happiness right now?  All you have to do is look.  What makes you happy? Nature is an excellent in the moment happiness.  Look at the seasons, the beautiful trees, the colors of the forest, a daisy filled field; just to name a few.  When you head home, and your car is working just fine, this is another moment that you can be happy about. Look around you.  Think of all that you say and all you do. Seek the happy within each moment. Open your heart to finding grateful filled experiences.  Appreciate those around you and those experiences that have joy within them.

You have much to be happy about and that happiness, in the now of the moment, will then help to create that future you are wanting.

Happiness is a state of mind my friend.

beth mccain quotes 778

When you get into the mind and truly believe that every experience you experience is a part of getting you to where you want to be, then that is exactly what will happen.  And how you handle each experience in life, whether it is positive or negative, is the direction your life will head.  Anytime that you have a negative experience, you can either feel powerless and cave in to the negative feelings and thoughts that come into your mind or you can see it as just an experience with a few resistant feeling vibrations that you have a choice in how you handle it all.

Handle it with a positive mindset and heart, then the experience will feel less resistant and take a direction of more positive meaningful vibrations knowing that growth and lessons are coming about to help you to get to where you want to be.

Sometimes the best growth of vibration comes through an experience that seems less than positive, but really, that less than positive experience, is an experience that is needed to clear the air and move you in another direction.   How you breeze through it is the form it will take.

Trust and believe that all of your experiences are essential to getting you to where you want to be and how you deal with them is the direction they will take.

You’ll be just fine.

beth mccain 791

You are what you believe.  Any belief you may have about the world, yourself, others, and the Universe itself; you are creating your own world within yourself. Some believe the same way and some do not. Many can believe in one thought whereas others don’t believe at all.  There is no right way or wrong way in how you believe.  There is no one way to believe. The only Universal law that applies to how you live your life for all is ‘live yourself in any way that you see fit as long as you don’t intentionally harm another mentally or physically.’  This is saying that you can believe, act, think, and feel any way that feels the best for you as long as you don’t intentionally harm another with those thoughts or your actions.

So if you want to believe in something that no one else believes in, then do it.  There is no wrong or right way to live life.  You are experiencing life and that is what is expected of us when we are born.  We are expected to experiencing life through a physical vessel. Our spiritual being is observing, learning, and growing through each and every experience we have.  That is all that is required of us from the Universe.

You can be just like others if you want or you can be completely unique.  It’s your choice in how you life life and no one can take that from you.

time to release

Holding on to anger is one of the ways of keeping life from being positive.  Sure, the anger may be warranted, but when you choose anger, day after day, you are creating a life full of more to be angry about. Your perception of life will be jaded and negative and the anger will just continue to build until you decide to let go of it.

Anger can be a great motivator, but it is when we hold on to that anger that it no longer is about what initially made you angry.  It is up to you to release the anger and get that burden off your shoulders.

Forgiveness of others, of self, and of challenging experiences is a way of letting go of anger or even a negative feeling vibration.

Why hold on to something that feels horrible, negative, and hateful? Take a deep breath in and in the exhale let go of the thoughts of anger. You’ll be able to see life much more clear with a weight taken off your shoulders.

This gives you full rein to create a positive thought and vibration in your life. Breathe out the anger and breathe in the appreciation and love of life. That will create a life full of appreciation and love.


When it comes to others and what they say or do, you don’t have to be affected by them. If they are saying rude things to you or talking behind your back, it is up to you to take care of the situation and then let go of any negative thoughts in regards to who they are or what they do.

If someone is bothering you, it is important to stand up for yourself or at least clear the air.  It is when you experience the same thing over and over again, and keep reacting the same way each time, that creates a negative vibration in your life.

When another is talking about your life and you don’t agree with them, you don’t have to take it personally.  They don’t know about your life; only you do.  They can’t see through your eyes or feel through your feelings; they can only assume what they think of your life by comparing it to their own experiences and more likely than not, their thoughts about your life are construed and wrong.

So why get upset over something they know nothing about?

It is your life and your choice of where your thoughts go. You don’t need to go down the rabbit hole with others unless you choose to. You can choose to remain calm and let go of what they think because they really don’t know what they are talking about.

Now, if you agree with them then you are getting some good suggestions about changing your life.

Don’t go down the rabbit hole unless you choose to…

You make your life what it is so if you are in a mindset or worry or doubt, then worry and doubt will be a part of your life.

If you are frustrated and angry, then frustration and anger will be a part of your life.

Life wasn’t meant to be lived through fear, worry, doubt, frustration, or anger.  Life is meant to be lived, and be present in every single moment, instead of thinking of the past or the future.

What you do with this moment will create your future moments. Even in life challenges you have a choice of the direction to take your thought.

If you are appreciative, then appreciative will be a part of your life.

If you are grateful, then grateful will become a part of your life.

If you are happy and work toward happiness in your every moments, then happiness will be  a part of your life.

If you think positive, talk positive, act positive, then the positive will be a part of your life.

You see?  In every moment you are creating through your thought.  And the direction you take your thought and your feelings, will create your future.

her story 3

There is no law that states that just because you are having a life challenge, that you can’t be positive and happy as you go through it.

You may ask how you can be happy and positive when you are experiencing moments that make you feel nervous or worried or sad.  You remember one phrase that puts it all to rest ‘all is well and will be well no matter what the experience.’

This is saying that no matter what happens, life will continue on and be just fine. This is saying that you trust in the direction the Universe is taking your life and that you know that the challenge you are experiencing is a part of taking you in a direction in your life. This is saying that how you handle the challenge is a part of where it takes you and that the experience will pass.  This is saying that you will deal with it, do your best, yet still appreciate the moments and life focusing on higher positive thoughts.

Be happy in your moments my friend.  That happiness will come back around to you always.

There is more than one path to get to where you want in your life and sometimes, the path you never thought to take, may be the path that will take you right to what you wanted life to be.

Don’t give up.  Trust and know that there are many paths to get you to where you want to be in life. Sometimes those detours can actually bring you to where you want to be.

Focus in on what you want the end result to be and then go with the flow and don’t be afraid to take a road that hasn’t been travelled before.  That road may just lead you to exactly where you want to be.

All you have to do is experience life.   That is what the Universe expects from you.  So whether you are multi tasking, have five jobs, have no job, sitting on the couch, out helping others, reading a book,  or anything else, you are experiencing life. If you feel that inner tug of doing more, then that is your spirit telling you what you may want to do to grow and experience even more if you so choose.

You can experience life in any way that you see fit as long as you don’t intentional harm another mentally or physically.  That is the one Universal law about experiencing life.

So do what you love, be who you want to be, and listen to that inner nudge because no matter what you can’t get it wrong.


Just because you may be having a challenge in your life, it doesn’t mean that you have to feel negative.  Life is full of challenges.  It is a part of being human, but we have a choice in how we deal with our challenges. When we deal with them in a positive mindset, then we are choosing a certain path to take while we take care of our challenge.  And the challenge begins to take on a whole different view than before. It no longer is about feeling upset, angry, or sad.  It becomes about appreciating and feeling positive and it begins to feel like it is no longer a challenge, but growth and lessons for the spirit.

Being positive is a choice that you get to make in any experience.



No matter what is happening around you, whether it is chaos or just an agitated feeling, you can find the calm within the ‘storm.’

Take a moment to tell the mind to tell the body to relax your shoulders and your neck.  This gives the mind and the body something to do while you shift focus toward the calm that is within you. We can get tensed up in moments and to be conscious of the body and its tenseness, we can let go of the physical tension through the mind.  The mind understands that we are trying to calm and that one action of relaxing the shoulders and neck, brings a calm over the body.  Sure, you may have to do it again and again, but eventually it will become second nature.

As the mind and body are busy, find your calm within.  Take a deep breath in and let go of any tension in your exhale.  Envision going within and going deeper in thought and feeling.  Get into a calm focused state of mind, body, and spirit and feel the connection to the Universe where there is always calm, always peace.

Sit with the feelings and thoughts for a moment and keep deep breathing in and breathing out going deeper within.

The calm within the storm my friend.  Use it to create balance, calm and harmony.

Think about your day and ask yourself if you think only of what you don’t want to happen or do you think about what you do want to happen.

When you focus on what you don’t want to happen, then that don’t want comes knocking on your door  The more you worry about what ‘might be,’ the more you are creating the very vibration of what you don’t want.

That is the moment to shift your focus from what you don’t want and focus in on what you do want.

Let’s say you have a family reunion coming up and when your mind goes to your family reunion, you think about everyone you don’t get along with.  You focus in on creating ‘what if’ scenarios of what you don’t want.  You will begin to complain and dread the reunion before it has even happened. You are creating the very vibration of what you don’t want to happen.  The more you focus and complain about it, the more you are creating that scenario.

OR you can think of your family reunion coming up and you can consciously shift your mind to what you will enjoy and who you want to see.  You can think of all the best case scenarios and the great memories that will be made.  You are now focusing on the very vibration of what you want to happen.  The more you focus and look forward to it, letting go of any and all ‘don’t wants,’ you will be creating the best case scenario and more often than not, the experience will be a positive one.

Everyone knows what they don’t want so why not know what you do want and appreciate the thought? You’ll be creating some wonderful best case scenario vibrations.

You are the only one responsible for your happiness or unhappiness. There is no one person or thing that can take the blame for you being unhappy.  You may say, “Oh really?  How about that guy I was in love with that broke my heart and left? He is responsible for my unhappiness!”

It can hurt when another leaves.  It can be upsetting when an experience doesn’t go as smoothly as you had hoped. But neither person or thing is to blame. You have a choice whether to be happy. They are not responsible for all of your happiness.  This isn’t to say that it doesn’t hurt to break up or that it isn’t upsetting when something doesn’t go the way we wanted it to, but to put full blame on something or someone, you are giving that person or thing, power over how you are feeling and thinking. Why give them that kind of power over your life?

Take responsibility for your own happiness no matter what you are experiencing. Focus in on all that makes you happy and release any thought or feeling of another having the power to make you feel unhappy.   Take time to be upset if you feel you need to, but do your best not to stay in that upset for too long or else it will take control of your everyday thoughts and feelings.  Give it the proper venting and ‘grieving,’ but then move forward a little each day toward what makes you feel happy.

Happiness is a choice my friend.

Let’s say you are heading into an experience that you know you are not fond of.  Maybe you’re going to a family gathering that isn’t the most fun or maybe it is time to get your car checked out.  And normally when you go into those experiences, you have a less than positive thought and feeling before heading toward it.  It could be from a past experience or you just may not like the environment that you have been put in.

Or maybe you are about to experience something that seems scary so you are anxious.

No matter what the situation or experience, what would happen if you just assumed the best?  No matter if you have experience the family gathering a hundred times and it always turned out less than positive, what would happen if you just expected the best case scenario instead of preparing for the worst?  What if, that nasty little bully of an uncle is just like he has always been but you choose not to play his game.  What if you just said ‘game over’ in your mind and went about your business focusing on enjoying the moments.  You have to be there so why not create a positive mindset.

What would happen if you kept a positive mindset in each and every experience.  So what if it turns out different than you thought; it can be a positive, right?

You get to choose the direction my friend.

Each and every day it is important to take the time to find calm and balance. Without balance and calm, we will feel confused and chaotic.

Take a moment to focus in on feeling calm. Tell your mind to tell the body to relax the shoulders and the neck. By doing this, you are giving the mind something to do and the body something to do. This leaves you with a clear open connection to the Universe.  In that open connection you can find calm in any experience.  You can get into the mind of calm and really focus in on the feeling of calm.

Even if you do this for just a few moments you will be taking control of any feelings of negative and anxiety by letting them go and replacing them with the ‘all is well’ thought and feeling.

The more you are in a state of calm and balance, the more life will open up to more of the same.

You are the only one responsible for what makes you happy. If you think your happiness relies on a certain circumstance or a certain person, then you want to think again.  Sure, certain people can bring happiness to who we are, but they are not responsible for being your reason for happiness.  That is a lot of pressure to put on another and you are giving that person much of your own ‘power’ by thinking they are responsible for your happiness.

Be happy for you. Let your own thoughts and experiences create your happiness.  Let your happiness come from within and not a circumstance or person.  When you make the shift of creating your own happy, you will empower and build your own vibration to a higher vibration of happiness.


In this day, what have you appreciated and felt grateful for? Have you made the effort to see the positive or have you just been waiting for it to come to you?

It begins with you.  You have to make the effort to change your perception of your day and seek out what made you feel good, feel positive, and gave you that sense of gratitude. You are the one responsible for your happiness. Not your job, not someone else, not your boyfriend or girlfriend, not your spouse; only you.

Seek out the positive in your daily moments and focus in on how good your moments were even if there were a few negatives. Take your thought and focus to what you love about life, what you enjoy seeing and what you enjoy feeling.

In this day, be in the present moment. No need to live in the past or worrying about the future. Focus on today and enjoy your moments.

The more you enjoy life, the more joy filled experiences will come into your life.
