YOU ARE RELATED TO ROYALTY & WHY IT MATTERS

Dear Royal Friends,                                                         Did you know you are related to royalty?  Yes it’s true! You may have seen me advocate this principle before, but it’s so important, I want to make sure my new royal friends receive this information and my long-standing fans don’t forget. 

According to my theory,”The Sixth Degree Princess,illustrated below beautifully by my son, Prince Max, and recently proven at the Royal Academy of Brainiacs and Quacks, one way or another we’re all descended from a royal bloodline.  Right side or left, you know who you are. 

 

Why is this theory so important? There’s a magical transformation that takes place when you realize you’re a real princess, as authentic as the kind who wears  a diamond encrusted tiara or sleeps on a mile-high mattress with a little pea. (That’s spelled correctly.) The kind who knows Compassion and Kindness are her middle names. Mine is also Frances. The kind who’s proactively pursuing her bold destiny and carrying out her royal duty to use her gifts and talents to make the world a better place. The kind who knows the power of a smile to brighten the world and gladden a stranger’s heart.

When a person understands that there really is a tiara in her closet, and that her royal roots are not something she acquired at her hair dresser’s, she holds her head higher and walks more assuredly as she moves toward manifesting her destiny.  She awakens to the power of her birthright that is bound up in her sacred duty to explore, unearth and utilize her special gifts and talents to help make her kingdom a more wonderful place in her own, uniquely fabulous way.

So like I’m always hocking you, “Put a tiara in your closet!” Go out there and be the bold and beautiful princess you are!

I’d love to hear what putting a tiara in your closet means to you!  Leave your comments below, princess!

3 TOP TRANSFORMATIONAL HAPPINESS IDEAS FROM WOHASU – MIAMI WORLD HAPPINESS SUMMIT

Dear Royal Friends~

I’m back from the phenomenal World Happiness Summit in Miami. Woohoo WOHASU!

As promised I’m excited to share my 3 TOP TRANSFORMATIONAL HAPPINESS  takeaways from the WOHASU conference on happiness, where I was honored to be a facilitator.  Here they are, in random order:

#1 Happiness starts with a smile                                      Profound in its simplicity and power. Who knew you can start seeding a world with less misery and more happiness by smiling more!  You can! Your very presence can, more than words, bring a change in vibration, the way you can feel the vibration shift all of a sudden when a baby or a puppy enters the scene. You must be the change you want to see in the world. Happiness starts with a smile!  Serve with your smile! – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

#2 Don’t pursue happiness directly – the happiness paradox – Tal Ben-Shahar                                                Just like you can’t look directly into the sun, you don’t want to directly pursue happiness, as there’s a happiness paradox; people who pursue happiness are often more depressed! The solution?  Focus on wholeness, which is   Shahar’s definition of happiness.  How to attain wholeness? Focus on  these categories: spiritual, physical, Intellectual, relational, and emotional, otherwise known as S.P.I.R.E.

#3 Joy can be experienced even when life isn’t pleasurable – Shawn Achor                                            Happiness is “the joy you feel moving toward your potential,” so you don’t have to be all ships & giggles to be happy.  By way of example, Achor told how a marine carrying a heavy backpack slithering through the mud on a military exercise described himself as happy because he felt he was upholding the safety of the United States.  Achor states, “Our goal is joy and meaning in our life and how we can help other people.” Thus, while pursuing meaning and helping others, we can experience joy even when life kinda sucks. Awesome!

I hope you enjoyed these key happiness takeaways! If you did, keep your eyes peeled because I’m putting together a FREE DOWNLOADABLE REPORT with more KEY HAPPINESS TIPS put forward by the leaders at WOHASU.

There’s also a spoiler alert coming soon, but I’m not going to spoil the spoiler just yet. Maybe next post!

SPRING RENEWAL – FINDING THE POSITIVE WHEN LIFE BRINGS POOP

Dear Royal Friends,

A little bunny told me that spring is hare, I mean here!  Time for recalibratin’, re-evalutatin’, and re-invigoratin’ your outlook on life. Time to push upwards with a new view. Maybe life ain’t that bad. Maybe there’s something wonderful and promising in your life that doesn’t look so great right now.  Listen, if the tulips and daffodils can do it, so can you! They slept as bulbs all winter long, cozy and warm underground.  Then spring came along, they peeped up from the ground, and what did they find? They’re surrounded by fertilizing poop that smells so bad, it’s a wonder they don’t dive back into the earth and grow upside down! 

But they knew how to put a good spin on the stink. They knew their  situation may be hard to take right now, but it’s gonna turn them into one glorious bouquet!

 The ability to find what’s good lurking in what seems bad is one of the biggest keys to a happy life.  You know that joke about the little boy who found poop in the living room under the Christmas tree, and instead of crying, he happily exclaimed, “I know there’s a pony here somewhere!” The trick in life is to try to find that darn pony lurking in every smelly pile.

Very often, it’s these challenges and limitations in our lives that hold something wonderful, if we just remember to look for it.  A perfect example of this is Dr. Seuss. He wrote one of his most famous books, “Green Eggs and Ham,” on a bet he couldn’t write a book with fifty or fewer words. We all know how that turned out.  He got to say, “Here’s egg on your face.”

I remember when I was in college and I had a  painful infection in my tooth and had to rush to the University clinic for an emergency root canal. The tooth then needed a crown. (Perfect for a princess, aye?) Well the little bugger didn’t fit perfectly, and little bits of dinner liked to hang out there.  I thought at the time, “Well this sucks. Food is getting caught in my tooth and I have to floss it out every night.  What a pain!”  But I figured as long as I was flossing the one tooth, I might as well floss them all. And the habit of flossing was born.  Voila. Something good from something bad.

And indeed, like the habit of flossing, learning to find the good in the bad is also a habit, and you would benefit greatly from cultivating it, even in the lighter challenges of your life.  Say you bemoan the fact that you can only afford one really good Little Black Dress. That might feel like a lack.  But with only one LBD, you might find the benefit of working your creativity like nobody’s biz.  One little black dress might be a catalyst to exploring  different ways to express yourself.  A big starburst pin on the shoulder one evening,  a vivid scarf flowing a la Isadora Duncan another,  bangles and baubles on another occasion, red heels on another, a bold statement necklace on another. Necessity is the mother of invention…in the end you learn something wonderful about yourself. You never knew you were such a mother!

Try looking at life from a benefits point of view, even in the hard times. The moment you take a problem and turn it on its head to find the blessing, life gets a whole lot easier, and you get a whole lot happier.

 HAPPY SPRING!  FIND THE BLESSINGS!

FIND OUT HOW YOU’RE DEFINITELY RELATED TO ROYALTY!

Dear Royal Friends,

Did you know you are related to royalty too?  Yes indeedy!  You may have seen me advocate this principal before, but I believe it’s so important that I’d like to share it with you again for reinforcement.

According to the indisputable and globally recognized theory of the “Sixth Degree Princess™,” you too are a valuable member of the tiara totin’ tribe!

 In conjunction with this announcement, the palace press office is once again reissuing the official royal diagram illustrating this principle.  As shown below in the diagram by the charming and handsome Prince Max, whether you’re a devout believer in a Supreme Being, an atheist, an agnostic, or you’re not even sure you actually exist, the  Six Degree Princess Theory™ applies to you! 

THE OFFICIAL ROYAL DIAGRAM: THEORY OF THE “SIXTH DEGREE PRINCESS™”

OFFICIAL ROYAL DIAGRAM: THEORY OF THE SIXTH DEGREE PRINCESS™

Why does being related to royalty make a difference?  There’s something magical that happens when you realize you’re a princess. A real princess! The kind that wears tiaras and sleeps on mile high mattresses with a little pea under them (but not a little pea on them.)  You hold your head higher, your walk is more graceful,  expectations for yourself become greater, and you begin thinking about how you can use your newfound connections and power for the greater good.  Best of all, finally you’ll have a place to wear your tiara other than a Halloween parade!  

https://pixabay.com/en/queen-royalty-royal-monarch-914877/

It is my fervent wish for you, with the glory and grace of royalty as your rightful claim, you  go out there every day and kick up some royal dust under those gilded heels, follow your passionate porpoise, and be as kind as you can while doing so.  To wit, have yourself a palace pant load of fun and do everything you can to  “LIVE YOR ROYALLY HAPPY LIFE!™ ”   

Follow me, dahhhling, and I’ll do everything I can to help you!

Seven Princess-worthy Secrets to Comfort Yourself

My Dear Royal Friends, 

Here’s a little secret you might not know.  Even the happiest of happy princesses has bad hair days.  I don’t mean bad hair in the literal sense, as tiaras hide a myriad of sins, but days when she wants to hide under the blankees with her biggest, softest, fluffiest Pooh bear and not come out til tee-time.  

I can hear you all tittering, “She said poo, she said poo!” Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I want to talk about what to do when your world gets a wee bit a’kilter. I don’t mean a’kilter in the Scottish sense, in which case you could  merely “skirt” the issues.

Let me proffer a couple of examples. Say some mega-rich sheik beat you to the last vacancy at the only stable suitable for your precious steed. Did I mention you’re currently boarding Trigger in your ground floor guest bedroom? Did I mention said bedroom has white marble floors? Did I mention said horse is glucose intolerant?

Perhaps that Rent-A-Runway dress that looked divine on your bestie, but on you the dress looks like a 20-pound sack for organic potatoes.  Did I mention you look like the potatoes? Did I mention you’re hoping Whole Foods sent it?  Did I mention, the party’s tonight? Did I mention you’re trying to impress your “ex?”  Did I mention you’re out of Xanax?  

This stuff can really send a princess to the royal bed chamber for cover. Neve fear. Here are SEVEN TRIED AND TRUE suggestions to help you comfort yourself when you’re having a royally bad hair day.

1. ALLOW YOURSELF A TEN MINUTE PITY PARTY 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

    2.  PIG OUT BUT RESPONSIBLY

    4. CLEAN OUT THE CLOSETS & DONATE STUFF THAT DOESN’T FIT ANYONE ANYMORE 

 

 

 

 

 

5. READ ANY FAIRY TALE TO A CHILD EXCEPT BAMBI

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. BITE SOMETHING THAT WON’T BITE BACK

7.   COOK A NEW RECIPE AND INVITE A FRIEND TO TRY IT

YOUR MOST FABULOUS PRESENT EVER!

Bonjour Princesses~        

WANT TO KNOW  YOUR MOST FABULOUS PRESENT, EVER?  RETHINK YOUR PRESENT. 

A good place to start is the lyrics of the classic “gimme” Christmas song, “All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.”  

https://pixabay.com/en/mail-box-beaver-post-letter-46228/

They’re all about longing for something in the future, about not feeling good with who you are and what you have in the now.  The truth is, the more we appreciate and love where we are in the now, and what we have in the now, the more big, bold, beautiful and wonderful our lives will be — right now!                                                                                

Funny thing too, much of the time we don’t even realize how wonderful our now truly is.  I mean, how much cuter can you get than a kid with her two front teeth missing! Or a Guinea pig! (Or is that a hamster?) Same idea!

It may seem counterintuitive, but the more grounded with who we are and what we have right now,  the firmer is our foundation and jumping off point for manifesting our next level of greatness.  

Whether  you live in a castle or carriage house, you’ve got muffin top or model  shape,  you’ve landed Prince Charming or Pointdexter,  your “now” is all you’ve got.   Life sends us so many curveballs, challenges and changes, it is imperative to acquire  a world view of appreciation for what we have and who we are in any given moment, or we may end up with a palace pant load of regrets.   We can still keep our eyes on the prize, whatever it is we are going for,  in the future, be it all the wonderful dreams and goals we have.   But we mustn’t do so at the expense of appreciating the sacredness of our being, right where we are.   

I dare say someone close to their last breath would say, “Yes please!” to a bigger helping of this stuff of the “now.”  Knowing that, I double dare say living fully, deeply, majestically, hopefully, energetically, magically, lovingly, in  your “NOW” is the best, most awesome holiday present  you could ever give yourself!                            

It’s not always easy to live fully and gratefully in our “now”, but easy is for wimps. And we’re not wimps, we’re princesses!   Let’s vow together,  here and now, not to get to the end of our days before we recognize just how precious “being” is.  Let’s live, laugh and love our “now” no matter what it looks like — now.   The present of the present.  Wow!  What a fabulous gift.

MAY YOU LOVE ALL YOUR PRESENT(S)

Bisous et tra la la,

Xoxoxoxo,
