By Victoria J.Brown

Embrace yourself. Embrace life.

Do you embrace yourself enough?

Unfortunately, not many people do embrace themselves enough. But it’s important to love yourself and embrace all that you are and embrace your life. By embracing yourself and your life you can learn to accept situations, other people, and all that life throws at you.

This article from gives a great overview as to why loving yourself first is so important.

We all have something about ourselves that we don’t like, but embracing your uniqueness will enable you to shine and give out love to others.

Ask yourself when trying to embrace yourself: Would you treat someone else as mean as you treat yourself? Would you criticise someone else as much as you criticise yourself? Once you accept yourself and all your flaws, you’ll find it easier to embrace others and your life.

Maybe you are finding it hard to move on from a past event, an event in your life that you feel is affecting your future. Embracing these past events and learning from them will help you move forward.

Are you unsure how to do this? Do you feel this is easier said than done?

Here’s a little exercise to get you started on learning how to embrace yourself:

1/ Write down the situation that you feel is holding you back: what has happened and what you feel is holding you back.

2/ Write down what has upset you about this situation: why are you upset? What are you feeling, what are your emotions?

3/ The most important part of this exercise and this part MUST be done: Write answers to the following questions:

* What you have learned from the situation?

* What could you have done differently? If anything …

* What can you do about it now?

* What positive things (there will be plenty) can you take from the situation, experience and how can you use these positives in your future. This last part of the exercise is the most important. Embracing an upsetting event is crucial in moving forward with your future.

Believe that everything happens for a reason. So accepting your past and the reasons why certain events have occurred will help you embrace the future.

This Week’s Positive Word is CHOICES

C is for Choices

By Victoria J.Brown

Sometimes we are faced with difficulties in life that we have to either overcome or dwell upon. However, choosing to look at what you have rather than what you don’t can definitely overcome any difficulties.

C is for Choices

But once you understand that life is a journey, and every stop is meant to be, you can choose to embrace it or fight against it.

If you are experiencing some hard times at the moment, depending on how you choose to think about these life events, will result in the next part of your journey.

C is for Choices

This may be hard to comprehend if you feel as if you are stuck in some kind of rut or are facing some true life or health difficulties.

Let’s do a mini exercise.

Ask yourself these two questions …

  • On a day to day basis do you feel as if you’re plodding through the mud?
  • Do you look at other peoples’ lives, envy them and look at the bad in your own life?

If you answered yes to the above questions, here could lie the reasons behind the problems you are experiencing in your life.

C is for Choices

Now ask yourself these two questions …

  • Which part of your life do you feel is running quite smoothly? (One rule with this question – you can’t answer ‘nothing’ – find something! There will be something!)
  • When was the last time you did something with LOVE for someone else?

Life is about making choices; to choose to see the good around us or choose to dwell upon which isn’t good. Sometimes we could dislike something so much in our life that it can take over our whole being. So much so they can’t see the goodness in their life. They choose to see the darkness.

What people don’t realise is unhappiness leads to more unhappiness.

It’s as simple as this –

C is for Choices

Now ask yourself another question …

Who do you CHOOSE to be?

Do you choose to be the person who focuses on everything that is wrong in the world?


Do you choose to be the person who focuses on all that is good?

Life is simple when you look at it simply! Life is beautiful! We must choose to see the beauty. Once you see the beauty … it all becomes clear.

This Week’s Positive Word is APPRECIATION

Monday’s Motivational Blog

A is for Appreciation

‘Appreciation will lead to more things to appreciate in your life’

Victoria J.Brown


When you woke up this morning, what were your first thoughts? Did you want to get out of bed? Did you think about appreciating the fact that you could actually get out of bed? Did you appreciate that you are alive and living in this precious wonderful world?

Many people don’t wake with these thoughts. The reason many people are unhappy in their lives is because they want MORE! And that’s ok … it’s okay to want more from life, to want to strive ahead and make a better life for yourself and your family. It’s great to have that determination. But if you appreciate how far you’ve come, you will go further.


Before I was introduced to the Law of Attraction, which was many, many years ago, I was a ‘glass half-empty’ type of girl, those days are long gone, in fact, I can’t even remember that girl. Now I’m more than a ‘glass half-full’ girlie … I’m a ‘glass half-full looking for people who are thirsty,’ girlie.

Emotions and feelings are the keys to having a better life. Being unappreciative of your current situation could lead to a worse situation. You may think, ‘but I do appreciate my life, I just want more.’ As I said above, this is ok, to want more is healthy, but when was the last time you actually looked at you and felt truly grateful. How often do you look at your life and feel deep appreciation? True appreciation is a blessing.



Here’s an exercise for you:

Sit down, breathe deeply and relax (in a quiet space where you can’t be disturbed)

Now imagine the following:

Your life without your loved ones

No roof over your head

Being so hungry and not knowing where the next piece of food is coming from.

Now, APPRECIATE all the things you have in your life that you don’t want to lose.

Put your hands together and really feel true appreciation from your heart.

Say aloud, ‘Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.’

When I first started learning about the Law of Attraction, I realised that I didn’t appreciate my life enough. Now, I appreciate everything in my life and I constantly say ‘thank you’.

A good exercise is to write down daily 10 things you are grateful for, 10 things you appreciate in your life. Even if you hate your job, you should appreciate that you have a job and that you are able to work. Start looking at the things in your life that you don’t like and turn it around. What can you appreciate about it?

Do this every day until your appreciation becomes second nature, saying ‘thank you’ and appreciating your life is a way of life for you.
