How To Experience True Freedom

IMG_1520

Don’t give others the power to dictate your life. Don’t ever give up your control. Choose freedom, choose life, choose you!

When you feel like someone is trying to take your freedom or control you, put the following tips into action.

  1. Say no. There’s beauty in the word no and no is a complete sentence.
  1. Be strong with your decision. Don’t feel guilty and don’t waiver back and forth. You made the choice because it serves you well.
  1. Don’t feel bad or say sorry for the decision you made. Don’t put doubt in someone’s mind that you may be unsure of what’s right for you.
  1. Compromise is okay if that is your choice but don’t do it to satisfy someone’s demand.
  1. If you can and if you want to, offer another solution.

Remember that you can’t be everything to everyone but you can be the best to yourself and for yourself. 

Today I choose to live with liberation and excitement in my life. I will not be afraid of what is to come or worry about what has happened in the past. I will not worry about who’s not happy with the decisions I make for me. I will stand strong with my choice. I choose the beauty of FREEDOM and I choose ME! What about you? Have a wonderful week! MUAH

Manifest A Vision Beyond the Vision Board

Manifest a vision beyond the vision board #ImBeautyInspired

The New Year will be here in a few days. What have you done to prepare your mind, body and soul to make your vision clear and make your dreams come true?

I’m not taking about the normal New Year’s resolutions that most of us break. I’m talking about preparation of goals to make vision clear and make your dreams come true. Have you thought about what you want to accomplish in 2016? Have you asked yourself how will I make my dreams come true or are you just hoping and wishing?

Here are some tips to make your vision more clear…

Reflection is one of the most important steps. You can’t make something better or avoid making the same mistakes without making/taking observations from the past.

Reflect on the current year. What did you accomplish and how? What did you like and what would you do better? Would you change anything? If so what and how? The things that you liked, is there a way you could have done it better or more efficient? Did you set goals? Did you meet, exceed your goals or is the room for improvement?

After your reflection, start with the following questions and tips to manifest your vision.

1. What dreams do I want to accomplish this year?
– Make sure you make a list of 2 – 4 things you really want to do. You can have more or add to the list at any time.
2. How will I make my vision clear?
– Put detailed tangible goals in place for each dream.
3. Do you know your why?
– Why do you want this dream to come true? What is your purpose in making this dream come true?
4. Is your list balanced?
– Do you have goals for personal, professional, and spiritual growth?
5. Do you have a timeline set for each goal?
– This can be monthly or quarterly.
6. Who is your CEO? Do you have someone to hold you accountable?
– Find a friend who believes in you. Share your timeline and goals with them. Check in on a regular basis. Make a date for you to follow up with them to discuss your progress.
7. How will you stay motivated?
– Celebrate the wins and re-evaluate the missed opportunities.

These tips will help you start an outline to make your vision clear and make your dreams come true. If you need help with any of the above, please reach out to me at support@scarletbeautymedia.com and we can set up a consultation. Or you can purchase my book, “#ImBeautyInspired A Keepsake Journal of Original Beauty Quotes & Affirmations” to help you reflect, re-evaluate and re-invent your vision.

7 Tips To Get The Most Out Of Life

#ImBeautyInspired to get moreUnfortunately there is no rule book to life. Sure, there’s self-help books, counselors and coaches that can offer you guidance. But it’s up to you to use your courage, confidence and love to make the most out of your life. If you decide to seek help and don’t use the help then what’s the point? Whatever advice you receive, analyze it, tailor it to your life and use it.

If you don’t deposit love, good vibes and confidence in to your life you’ll get nothing back in return. Inner beauty is what makes life worth living. When your inner beauty is in tact life becomes more balanced.

Here are a few reminders to help you get the most out of your beauty to enhance your life.

1. Strength: If you feel lost, find the strength to get help.

2. Courage: Find the courage to make the necessary changes after you seek help.

3. Wisdom: Have the wisdom to remove things from your life that don’t serve you well. If withdrawals are made without deposits, you’ll feel depleted and lost.

4. Inspiration: Find something or someone who inspires you. Take that inspiration to help you reach higher.

5. Motivation: Don’t depend on others to motivate you. Get up and do something for you. Make a plan, set a goal and celebrate your achievement.

6. Dream: Don’t ever stop dreaming. Always remember that dreams are meant to come true. If you set your life up for success your dreams will come true.

7. Self-love: It all starts with you. If you don’t love yourself it will be hard to love others. Make time to invest in you. If you don’t invest in you, no one else will.

Don’t be afraid to put more in to your beauty to get more out of life. You have to self-empower to self-improve to get the best you in return. Have a wonderful week! MUAH

5 Tips to Help Balance Life

Beauty is balance

Life has a funny way of teaching us lessons. A few years ago I learned that there’s more to life than work. Work gave me some satisfaction of achievement but my life felt incomplete.

My life was not balanced. Love and happiness was on the back burner and sadness started to take over.

One day I challenged myself to do something for me. Because if I didn’t find balance, I would be miserable and unable to be the woman I am today.

Here are a few things that helped me find balance.

1. Treat yourself: I incorporated something I call Renee day. This is where I dedicate one day of the week to do all things Renee loves. Do a half day if you can’t do a whole day.

2. Relax, relate & release: I pray and meditate every morning. I read bible verses and affirmations from apps on my phone. This allows me to set the tone for the day.

3. Exercise: This is a work in progress for me. But in the summer I would go for a 30 minute walk 2 – 3 times a week. This allowed me to reflect on life or sometimes just think about nothing and enjoy my music with some alone time.

4. Find a hobby: During my walks I started to take pictures and now I have a new found love for photography. You won’t know if you actually like something until you try it.

5. Go on a date: Take yourself on date and enjoy your own company. Or you can invite friends or your significant other to catch up on some great conversation and quality time.

Remember, you are the only one who can balance your life. You know how the saying goes; “all work and no play…” So what are you waiting on? Go play and balance your life. What do you have to lose? Nothing…but you have so much more to gain! Have a wonderful week! MUAH

5 Ways to be a Philanthropist

Beauty is Philanthropy #ImBeautyInspired

 

When you think about philanthropy do you think to yourself…impossible?! I’m not rich so I can’t be a philanthropist.

I used to think the same way. But, what I failed to realize is philanthropy is charity, contribution, a helping hand or a donation. You don’t have to be rich to be a philanthropist. There are many ways you can give back to others not just during the holidays but also throughout the entire year.

Here are a few tips to get you started!

 

  1. Brighten someone’s day! Smile, say hello to a stranger and compliment them. You never know what people are going through. A smile with a sweet hello can go a long way.

 

  1. Give back to a charity. Donate time and or money. Giving back doesn’t always have to be in the form of money; your time is service and service counts too!

 

  1. Support the homeless. Offer a meal, clothing or toiletries. It’s cold outside in many parts of the world, you may not be able to keep them safe but you can help keep them warm.

 

  1. Pay it forward. Instead of accepting gifts from friends and family this year encourage them to donate to a family in need.

 

  1. Be of service. Serve your family and friends in unconventional ways. Give them a day of rest and you take on their work. Help them find peace; pray with and for them.

 

Beauty is philanthropy and you don’t have to be rich to be a philanthropist. Spread a little beauty through random acts of kindness. I promise your heart will be filled joy and you’ll brighten someone’s day! Remember, every little bit helps! Have a wonderful week! MUAH

7 Tips to Live Life Outside of Your Comfort Zone

#ImBeautyInspired to be ambitious and take action

Fear and anxiety will kill all dreams and any possibility for success. They hold you back, make you lazy and allow you to live a life of complacency. Your dreams become stagnant; any possibility for growth and development seem difficult or impossible.

The best way to overcome fear and anxiety is with ambition and action. Here are a reminders of what to do when your stuck inside your comfort zone.

1. Fear is just a four letter word. Don’t let it intimidate you or force you to stand still.
2. When you feel anxious, take time to meditate and breathe deeply. Calm your nerves. Relax, relate and release.
3. When you feel fear or anxiety rear their ugly heads…take action. Don’t let them control you; you take control.
4. Get advice and seek help. Get a career or life coach. Allow them to help you streamline your ideas. They will help you figure out the issues, regroup and push forward.
5. Surround yourself with like minded people who will keep you on track. (Birds of a feather flock together)
6. Take a break. Sometimes we just need to do something that makes us happy to get back on track.
7. Invest in you. Mentally, physically, emotionally & spiritually. If you don’t, no one else will. Your investment will keep you on track to take action and live an ambitious life.

Don’t allow yourself to live a mediocre life. Step outside of your comfort zone and get a little uncomfortable. Action and ambition will take you very far in life but if you allow fear and anxiety to control you, you’ll always stand still.

Have a wonderful week! MUAH

7 Tips For Happiness & Success

#ImBeautyInspired to remove limitations and liabilities

Sometimes we put limitations on ourselves because we’re afraid of what may come. We’re afraid to fail, we’re scared of change or we’re nervous about success. When you set limitations in life you limit the possibilities of achieving your goals and you stunt your growth.

Take note that limitations are not always a barrier that we create. Sometimes liabilities show up in their place. Liabilities are people who don’t serve you well, don’t believe in you or hold you back because of jealousy or hate. Liabilities are toxic; don’t be afraid to remove them from your life or love them from a distance.

Life is about balance and you’ll lose self-control if you hold on to limitations and liabilities. The key to success and happiness is as follows:

  1. Start your day off right with prayer and or meditation
  2. Take inventory. Ask yourself what or who is holding you back
  3. Make a plan and set small attainable goals to remove limitations and liabilities
  4. Re-evaluate and remove anything in your life that does not serve you well
  5. Take action and follow through (a plan without a goal is just a wish)
  6. Celebrate your success with small rewards
  7. Take control and own your happiness. Success will follow

Repeat steps 1 – 7 anytime you get stuck in a rut. Life was created to bring you joy. Don’t allow anyone or anything hold you back. Self-empower to self-improve! Have a wonderful week! MUAH
