Is it possible that we are so conditioned to our daily lives that we opt in to the idea that we have no control at all?
Emotions are not attached to you.
What you think about, creates the feeling you are feeling.
The emotion you are feeling then continues the thought you are thinking.
Slightly unfair circular pattern to put yourself in.
We end up staying in the same circumstances of feeling stuck, hating our jobs, wanting more, because we have been addicted to the emotional state they produce and our own brain causes chemicals, yes chemicals that arouse the state of being.
This is why many of us stay in situations that make us unhappy, feeling as if we have no choice but to suffer.
Choosing to stay stuck in this circular patterned mindset and attitude all because a portion of our brain has been hardwired by our repeated thoughts and reactions.
So again, every thought produces a chemical that is matched by a feeling in your body.

Yesterday was a defining day for me. One to put in the record books.
But first, let's back up 5 years...
When I started Smile Inside Out, it was a journey of healing for me. I started with a Facebook page which I collected quotes and I wrote what I was thinking.
Pretty simple really. It made me feel great as each quote was a release for what I was feeling in that moment.
I started to see how others resonated with the posts, I started to feel my inner self grow and glow.
Now obviously, my story of how my company was developed is a way bigger story than a few posts from Facebook here and there... but what I am getting at, is that great feeling inside of others understanding what I was feeling, started the momentum to hearing what others were going through.
I saw something magical happening. I was reaching people and making a difference in their lives. Maybe even the smallest difference, but to me... that mattered.
It mattered to me so very much that it became my mission to make ever...
