This post was perfect for me today. I am starting a relationship for the first time, and it's confusing sometimes to hear the way other people think "things SHOULD be" or what is "right" or "wrong" when everything seems normal to me. I have found myself thinking or using some of the phrases you posted, and you are right...thinking and saying does no help at all.

One thing I have been saying to myself that makes me feel better (thanks Google billboard) is "why not?" For the little things, it helps. And it makes me actually DO those things too!

Thank you for this. Each point came back to the idea that you need to take action and work with what you have, love. So much more empowering than wishing and hoping, which is where I usually get stuck.

Dana - I'm so glad this post spoke to you today. "Why not?" is a great phrase to use. I'm glad you brought that up! And I hope you use that in your relationship. There isn't always one "right" way to do something!

MK - You're welcome! It's true; we must take action in our lives. I hope you found this empowering!

Thank you so much for this post. I have printed it off so I can read it again and again. It speaks to that part of me that loves to second guess and punish myself for the things that aren't perfect (you know the way everyone else seems online...lol). I use the phrase 'it is what it is' although often that feels like resignation not acceptance.

Oh this is good. I so easily get in my head all the time, and can sometimes not just let things be or get too what if I did this and that too much. Like now, I have to buy a car and was waiting to do it in a few months but apparently something bigger is telling me to dump this car. finally! lol Waiting really gets you nowhere fast! I found myself getting very agitated with the quote responses I've been receiving and decided tonight, go with my gut, don't go too overboard, and you still have to enjoy life - and I will not have the stress of this old bad karma car over me. =)

Cynthia - You're welcome! I'm so glad you printed this out to read. "It is what it is" is a great phrase to use to stay focused on what's happening now and not dwell on what could be.

Saggleo - Sounds like you're on your way to getting the new car! It can be a good thing to wait sometimes, but more often than not, waiting and wishing doesn't get you anywhere. Good luck with the new ride!

Yes! Whenever one of these phrases pops into your mind. Be present and positive or positive and present. Two powerful words!

Derrick - Accepting what is is so important when it comes to living a positive and present life and using those two words - "positive" and "present" - can definitely serve as great inspiration for acceptance.

Love this post gorgeous! I couldn't agree more that when you start to accept where you are and create action to get further rather than simply wishing or regretting, things start to move in the right direction. Wonderful reminders, thank you! x

Kimberley - Thank you so much! This week I'm taking major action in my life -- quitting my job to be a writer! -- and as scary as it is, it feels so right. Thanks for reading -- and for continuing to inspire me with your ebook. A must-read for anyone ready for action: http://dreamdelightinspire.com/ebook/
