I Will…

spring-bird-2295431__340

I will laugh whenever I can because it makes me feel good.

I will sing because that is when I truly hear myself.  🙂

I will dance because the sound of the music is pleasing to my ear.

I will listen because when I do I open the door for knowledge and wisdom to enter.

I will show compassion for others because it is the right thing to do.  If the situation were reversed I would want someone to care about me too.

I will pray because prayer soothes my soul and helps free my mind from worry.

I will help whenever and wherever I can because it feels good to give back.

I will praise the Lord at all times because he has shown me his mercy and favour even when there maybe times I don’t realise it or deserve it.

I will not make promises I know I can’t keep.

I will not make unrealistic expectations for myself or others.

I will be grateful for everything I have no matter how little it is.

I will not be complacent because that is not a good look for me. 🙂

I will actively pursue my happiness in everything I do starting with my thoughts.

I will love and cherish the people in my life who genuinely love and care about me.

I will love myself because even with the imperfect parts I am still a wonderful and beautiful person.

I will always appreciate and be grateful for my readers because they inspire me to do what I do.

It is important from time to time to list for ourselves what we want and don’t want for and from ourselves.

Have a wonderful night.  Thank you for reading.

People can be harsh at times but it is what we believe and tell ourselves that does the MOST damage or gives us the most STRENGTH.  

Whenever you find yourself listening and believing the negativity around you just remember.

Be the LOUDER voice in your head

When all the NOISE around you is pushing you out of bed

It’s the thought of your HAPPINESS that they truly dread

Let the LIGHT within you IGNITE

Silencing your FEARS with a light so BRIGHT

REMOVING the obstacles with all your MIGHT

It’s clear you’re NOT giving up without a FIGHT.

Review, Reflect and Reposition our thoughts

Saturday greetings to you all!  I hope this new day meets you all in good spirits.  After all it’s the beginning of the weekend short I know but sweet all the same. 🙂

Just wanted to drop in and leave a few reminders that I felt inspired to share with you guys today as we review, reflect and reposition our thoughts. 🙂

  1. It’s not always greener on the other side.  Sometimes our perception is often blinded and we often take for granted just how beautiful and brilliant our green really is. 
  2. When things get tough that’s not your sign to cut and run but rather a test of your resourcefulness and determination to get the job done.  🙂
  3. People come and go in our lives over our lifetime.  Let us be to others what we want and expect them to be to us.  If you want and expect loyalty – give it! If you want support – give it! If you want positive people in your life try to be a positive person.
  4. Happiness is not just for a chosen few but rather the few who are willing to pursue it.

Have a wonderful weekend! Stay blessed and not stressed.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Being Positive

Being positive is sometimes easier said than done.  Of course, things will happen that can make us sad or upset and that’s okay because that proves that we have not gone numb.

You should know that being positive does not mean that we don’t feel negative emotions anymore it just means we don’t allow ourselves to stay stuck in them.

Being positive simply means we are making a conscious effort to control our emotions and not having them control us!  This is speaks to our attitude, thinking, behaviour and vocabulary.

I remember my struggle with this that is why I am so passionate about this topic and may highlight it from time to time.   It is easy to let the negativity around us drain our happiness and discourage us from pursuing our dreams but we don’t have to.

Use your words, your thoughts, your relationships as well as your actions to foster and encourage greater positivity in your life.

Remember, being positive is a choice!

Make the rest of your week a great one!  Thanks for stopping by.

Where is your focus?

Focus.

Focus is a powerful word.  If channeled inwardly in a positive way we can do amazing things and can become the amazing people we were meant to be.

If re-directed toward others especially in a negative way – it can consume you.  Likewise, if you take that energy and direct it internally in a negative way by being highly critical and negative about yourself it can consume you as well.

Focus requires time, energy, effort, dedication and determination.

Use that mental power and asset to your advantage.  Use it to strengthen your core values or create new ones (if needed).  Don’t believe or give ear to the negative stuff people say.

  • You have the power to make things right!
  • You have what it takes to improve your situation!
  • The only story that is going to keep you back is NOT what people say about you but what you believe about YOURSELF!

I don’t have a crystal ball and no I don’t know what the future holds.  However, what I do know is what I want and don’t want for myself.  If you can say the same thing – then all you need to do is STAY FOCUSED and go after what you want.

Believe in yourself. We CAN do anything if we just put our minds to it.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

I Rise

I rise in spite of your efforts to hold me down

I rise because I am destined to

I rise because I refuse to stand still

I rise because failure is not the pill I chose to swallow

I rise even without your support and encouragement

I rise because I’m focused on the future

I rise because positivity is my food source

I rise because I believe I CAN.

 

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

The Little things

It’s the little things we do

That can show our actions to be true

So be careful what you do

If you don’t want to be sad and blue

A kind gesture can go a long way

In making someone else’s day

…………………………………………………….

It’s the little things we say

That can transform any day

So build up the courage

I don’t mean to be repetitive

But say something positive

……………………………………………….

It’s the little things in life

That can relieve a lot of strife

So be sure to check your attitude

And have plenty of gratitude

As you remember

The little things..
