Sometimes when we are building up our kingdom, we become too critical. Because as queenly women we want the best of everything, including ourself, we tend to focus on what is wrong-what can be fixed-and forget about all the wonderful things that going just right, or at least improving in our world.

Today, before we even start this business of becoming our best, let's just take a moment to stop and think about where we are right now.

Take a moment and stop and think of  all the adversity you have already overcome in your life. You may be 25 or 75. It doesn't matter. At some point you have faced something that caused a need for you to look deep inside yourself and pull out more strength than you ever thought you had.

Right now, all that matters is you are here. You have survived and made it this far, and I promise you, if you keep moving one foot in front of the other-I don't care what's pushing back on the other side-you will be the queen of your life.

I recommend taking a few minutes each morning to give thanks for your blessings and gifts. This can be in prayer to God, or a notebook you just hide away, or on your facebook profile page with audience marked as public. I don't care! It is completely your choice. But just stop each morning, and realize what a wonderful world this can be.

To get you started, I am going to share a few things I am grateful for today.

I am sitting in a cozy (ignore the mess!) home on a quiet street, while my rambunctious toddler napping upstairs.
It is Saturday and I am home which is my favorite place to be.
My amazing husband has taken our eight and six year old to a local museum, which means for at least a little while, the house is quiet.
I do not want for anything.
I am here.

See! It is simple. If you are reading this, you are likely more blessed than many people dream of. You can read! You have internet access! You. Are. Here.

Say Cheese!

Ugg. Noone likes me, whines the hard-to-satisfy inner child. My introspective nature wants to pick the whys apart, to cuddle and placate the child within. But decades of experience on Earth knows that this will only take me so far. And I want results. The world isn't seeing my inner struggle. Everyone else is running around, caught up in their own drama and they do not have time for my lengthy psychoanalysis.
I have done the research (reading dozens self-help books) I can't change people's inclinations and inner desires, so I am going to do the grownup thing here. I am going to start this new project, A Mighty Queen. I am mighty. I am a queen. So are you!
If your life is less than the best, less than all you dreamed of, come along with me on this little project. Let's see what we can do help make our own kingdoms more magnificent and our lives closer to the wondrous reign we dream of.

Step One:
Smile. I am going to smile. As a serious person I forget to smile a lot. This week, I am going to smile like it is going out of style. Today is Friday! The day of hope. What better  day than today to start such an adventure?

I will report in later this week on my results.
Want to play with me? Go clean those pearly whites (and set up a dentist appointment if needed!) and get ready to bestow your blessing on others with a happy, genuine smile. 

Want to join this adventure? Leave a comment introducing yourself and let me know a little more about the world you rule  or the improvements you want to make as we work together polishing that crown!
