Thoughts to Ponder

Where to begin?

I was asked the other day where positive living begins.  I’ll tell you!

It starts with creating a daily habit of writing down ten things you are grateful for!  A gratitide journal.  Even when I’m down… I come up with ten things to be grateful for.  It keeps me from going over the edge of bad attitude.

Have an ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE!

This is the best starting point ever!

Sing!

music notes

 

I use to sing every morning.  This would not only pick me up mentally, it also gave me more energy. 

Now sometimes I travel with other speakers… many did not appreciate me being so chipper in the morning so I stopped singing to keep from offending them. 

But this morning was such a great morning that I sang anyway (I’m traveling alone this week).  You know what?  I feel so much better!  I’ll be courteous enough to meet others needs, but from now on I’m going to SING Sunshine into my day!  Yes I’ll just […]

Taking Flight

A dear friend came over today and was telling me about a talk he had heard.  The speaker was a pilot and was talking about times of terrible thunderstorms.  When the skies are dark, the clouds filled with storm, the pilots hold tight for a window of opportunity to take off.  Some may ask why they would even try to fly in such terrible weather.  They stay grounded until they know they are safe to take flight.  This pilot talked about the difficulties they have even once they’ve been […]

In Times of Stress ‘BREATH’!

Today has been a fabulous day for me.  I got up, breathed in the fresh air.  Smelled the flowers in my flowerbeds.  And went to the salon to get my hair done.  What could be better for a woman?

But as I was at the beauty salon I noticed a good portion of the people were stressed.  As they rattled on and on about all their troubles I wanted to just call out…  stop complaining and do something about it!  Something simple like slowly breathing.  YES! Get that […]

Choose Your Friends Wisely

choose friends wisely

It has been proven that our thoughts produce energy waves and that those energy waves attract like energy waves.

Have you ever been around a negative person and found yourself getting physically or emotionally exhausted?  They are pulling negative energy waves out and eating the positive ones you have.

On the same page, if you are with a positive person they bounce energy off of you and your positive energy is boosted and you feel better… unless you are negative, then the positive pushes against you, often annoying you.

A quick […]

Carnival of Fun

Memories of things that bring joy to my heart!  Since I remarried and moved from my hometown, it has been difficult to carry on one or two of the traditions I’ve participated in for many years.  It is that time of year for the Summer Carnival so memories of it have been sparked in my mind.

The Annual Summer Carnival is one of those traditions that has had to be put aside for now.  But memories of  it still bring smiles to my heart, mind and soul.

For over a […]

Happy Father’s Day

I wish I had something terribly profound to say about Fathers.  Mine was a hero and loved by the people who worked with and knew him.  My husband is a phenomenal father and grandfather.  My father-in-law is filled with love and a gentle kindness for all.

So what does fatherhood represent?  I believe it represents;

Silent Strength! dad bear

Leadership! man

Teaching!father teaching

Quick Decisions! quick

Honest Opinions!
