Goals

Goals

I think an interesting exercise is to plan some goals for yourself. It’s important to make short term and long term achievable goals. I think many of us are busy in the day to day routines and responsibilities we fail to think about our goals. It’s time to get back to our dreams and goals and start making some progress toward achieving them.

One thing I realized throughout the time I have really stepped into being a business owner what I realized is that what stops us from our goals and dreams is negative people who are really our own insecurities playing out and self-doubting us. So the next time we may get made at negative miserable people, pray for them. They may not have goals. The goals you possess will keep you from engaging in anything other than them. Don’t let anyone detour you from your dreams. They say the secret to success is in your daily routine. It truly is. Dream your goals, make a plan, and grind them out until you own it!

Bye 2016 Hello 2017

elegant-new-year-blog-2017

2016 was a very interesting and prospering year, for sure.

I am grateful to all the lessons that I took away from 2016.  I am grateful to new relationships that have been formed and I am grateful for bridges that have been burned.  I have learned that not everyone is around for your journey, some are only part for a little vacation or two.  I have learned to speak up about my wants and needs and got back to reading again.  So many of us have moved away from reading, try to put a book or two on your resolutions sheet for next year.  I have learned more patience for myself and others in some ways and less in others.  I refuse to back down to anyone who is going to come around me or my family and do harm.  I find myself reading ignorant posts and emails from those vacation journey people and laughing hysterically.  Find your purpose people.  When you find your purpose with passion and conviction, everything else comes together.

Is it easy what I do?  No.  Are there sacrifices?  Why of course.  I am an entrepreneur, not just the runner of Elegant Clinical Corporation.  I was just told I need to have 7 businesses.  Well, we are on our way!  Our success can be seen in the lives we touch.  When we find bad press from people, it’s really good press because the mouths that bad press comes from are those who you see are truly MISERABLE with themselves.  I can’t change that, nor do I intend to.  You are away from myself, family and business for a reason.  What I choose is my choice.  I choose happiness, passion, purpose, viability, and wealth.  I plan to donate more and do more good.  I plan to continue to bless others as the Universe continues to Bless me.  Friend or Foe for 2017, I do wish you well.  All the lessons have taught me to vibe with my tribe so I end with gratitude, of course.  I am beyond grateful for 2016 and all the years before.  I look forward with freeing thoughts to 2017 and all the blessings to come!

Get a positive tribe ASAP.

Dr Karen Blog Pic

Recently I have seen the results of negativity attracting their tribe. I’ve seen it so much that I have completely avoided it. We have people come to our program whose black clouds are so frightening that I have to diverge myself from any contact.

I watch these people come in and ask intrusive questions with negativity and continue to ask until they get a negative response. It’s like until it’s negative they will keep going. I have no space for that or their lifestyle. I don’t know anything great that comes from a negative mindset. It’s sad that these people merely exist in the world. Maybe it’s more so frightening.  Get a Positive Tribe ASAP!

When People Show you who they are BELIEVE THEM

Dr Karen Blog Pic

When people show you who they are, believe them, accept them, forgive them, but make sure your life doesn’t involve them if what they are showing isn’t something you want to be around.

I feel as this year is coming to an end, that I must focus on more tolerance and acceptance for those who are different. For the family member who only wants a hand out, for the so called friends who have come and gone who feel a sense of owe, I forgive you. You have showed me how poorly you feel about yourself and my job is to accept you, pray for you and forgive you. I have found this has left such peace within me.

You see what I have found truly is we are oceans apart in how we live, how grateful we are, how we perceive ourselves and the peace we carry within our spirit. I have found that my spirit continues to feel full. With these continued lessons I look forward to the mountains I will move.

New Year’s Resolutions 2017

New Year’s Resolutions for 2017

I can remember last year saying that 2016 is going to be a good year.  Every year I have such optimism for the year ahead.  I don’t feel any year is super bad.  I feel that each day consists of lessons to learn from and do better.  As humans, we spend an awful lot of time beating ourselves up and not uplifting ourselves let alone one and other.  I know that some of the things I have learned have been greater patience in situations.  Having patience really is a virtue.  Sometimes when we are so quick to jump on something or we don’t think something is happening fast enough may be a blessing.  The greatest things may take time to process in the Universe before delivered.  Having patience also allows things that aren’t meant to cross your path to weed themselves out before they get to you.  Now that is a blessing.

One of the most important lessons I have learned is that people don’t have the same heart as me.  That has been a rougher lesson.  People will go to any level to try to destroy your heart.  I think we all may question, well maybe I will not do so much for people or go to the extreme.  I call that extreme.  I feel that we should always be generous, but generosity for the right people is a lesson I needed to learn most.  I mean that about energy the most.  When you “feel” that you can help someone, make sure they truly want the help.  Something you may find is right may not be where they are in life at the time and your advice or help can be misconstrued as judgment etc.

What I know for the New Year is that my heart will never change.  The love I give to the world is meant to be.  The forgiveness I give is truth.  I believe we are all humans and imperfect, obviously myself included.  I believe we all should win and we should encourage others to win too.

The one thing I am asking the Universe to serve me is no longer putting negative people who do nothing in my path.  People who merely want to use, abuse, good people, the system, always get one over on everyone and judge and try to make others feel as low as their own life is.  I am tired of those people.  I wish them well of course, but you will know that into 2017, you will never be around me.  I will make sure of that.  Black Clouds do not have a place around my shine!

Money & Magic

Confronting Money & Magic in the new year!

So, I’ve been confronting people. That is newer news. I have had a lifetime of sitting back, being passive, wishing I would have said this or that. Now, nah. I don’t have to worry about someone coming to me and saying awww did you say this behind my back, because well I said it to your face. No issue. Speaking my truth is liberating. I also don’t focus on saying things on a constant basis because of course none of my businesses would be thriving and we can’t have that! I’m about abundance and flow and money is all part of this process.

The way I work, the level of energy, commitment and passion I put in my work is inspirational even to me. What I can accomplish is pretty amazing. I watch the ideas unfold from my head to paper. Then from paper to reality. Then everyone can see it. Then there is no guessing. The magic comes to life. I can feel the magic. I believe in the bell from Polar Express one of my favorite Christmas movies. When you believe, watch out because magic truly happens!

Friendship

Friendship

Well this is a subject I don’t necessarily discuss. What is friendship? I’m not sure I am the best to answer it. I hope that I am a decent friend. I’m not all that committed to extra curricular activities that others would like. I don’t go out much. I’m not one to “hang out” really. I’m here though. I’m available. When you text I do text back. When you call, I may not always be available but I will call back.

I try to be there for friends in a new sense these days. Instead of always forcing my thoughts or opinions I wait until they are ever needed if at all. I try to listen more than respond. I try to interject of course non-judgmental advice and love into my friendships. I am and will always be a generous friend as that’s the way it’s written for me in the universe.

I don’t believe others need to be as generous back ever. My expectation of others is an ear, but more importantly loyalty. I would do anything to know that someone is and can be as loyal as I can be to them. I also feel like people can move on from friendships with no re-course. I don’t feel like when you have had enough of a relationship with anyone that they should go and tell secrets or make up lies. When a relationship ends move on. As adults growth is imperative. I have had to leave a lot of people behind not because anything was wrong with where they were at, but because I had to grow and move on.

Life is far more simple than we make it.  The deeper you can care about yourself, the more to offer to friends.  So, don’t be upset when someone can’t give you exactly what you put out.  People can only give to the capacity that they love themselves 🙂

I care.

Dr Karen Blog Pic

I care.

I have spent my life caring, thus far. I find it a wonderful thing and a blessed quality. I am passionate about all I do and care for all those in my path. I feel like anyone who enters into my path, whether it’s on vacation, a waitress or a chance encounter with a stranger. All is my journey to see it, take it in and choose which direction I will ultimately go. We are all fortunate like that. When we raise our head up high, open our eyes, and ears and mostly our heart, we are able to see such beauty in the world.

One thing I do notice is that not everyone has the same heart, not because they don’t want to, but because they think from their level of perception. And, that’s ok, not to be judged but be cautious. Continue to care, but always remember to care for yourself first then those around you, the one’s most dear.i

Thanksgiving Gratitude

Thanksgiving Gratitude

Writing about my gratitude is nothing to my showing of appreciation to others, the details I remember, making sure to remember important things, dates, what is going on for others is that interpersonal connection I feel like we all long for. When it comes to an actual challenge of gratitude, I could write a book and a long book at that.

Family first above all, but then what about all the little things that of course shouldn’t go unnoticed for this Thanksgiving Day. The relaxation scents I am grateful for, above all lavender. I haven’t met any scent that comes close to that of lavender. I have it in essential oils in every part of my life. It truly makes my mood improve.

The apple computer and phone systems I am grateful for. Their ability to be unmatched regarding organization across all platforms is unbeatable. I wanted to mention some everyday things that without the invention, life wouldn’t work the way it does.

I am beyond grateful for my brain and he knowledge I have learned. I am blessed to be able to turn my dreams into a reality and then some. I am not just a dreamer. I am a doer. I am so thankful for the decision making skills and the risks I am willing to take to ensure my goals will be achieved.

I am grateful for boundaries. Boundaries create a safe place for us all that not all of us learn growing up, myself included. But, when boundaries are in place it makes communication more clear. We should all have some boundaries in life and always respect. Respect is to never be messed with. I don’t tolerate disrespect anymore. I am grateful for respect!

On this day of giving, even though everyday I am giving, whether it be of something or whether it be my energy. I am willing to share it with those who actually want it. Wanting to look within is a tough task, but knowing this journey I am always willing to share and explore with others.

No matter what path of your journey you are on, know the script can always be re-written, the ending can change. None of that cannot happen without gratitude and most of all love❤️

Giving to Receive

Dr Karen Blog Pic

Giving to Receive.

I really believe that if you give to others without expectation, good things will come your way.  But don’t expect them to give you something you aren’t prepared to give in return.  Your kids won’t live a life very different from the example you set and don’t expect your employees to do work you aren’t willing to do.

So be a model for what you expect in life. Live a life that makes you proud and others will want to follow you. If you are sharing what you want with the wrong person don’t worry. The right one will come along one day. In life, the more love you give, the more you will get back.  Remember to receive love you must be prepared to give it, even when it is hard for you. Give love without reservation and you will find the life you want to live.
