Place Your Hand Over Your Heart and Repeat After Me… #inspiration #FridayFeeling


purpose

 

My inspirational thought today is short and sweet:

 

Place your hand over your heart.

 

Feel that?

 

That’s called purpose.

 

You’re alive for a reason.

 

Don’t give up.

 

Ever!

#FridayFeeling: Let Your Instincts Guide You Instead of Your Head #inspiration #motivation


instincts

 

NOTE FROM N. N. LIGHT: There won’t be a Friday Book Round-Up this week. It will return next week (July 14th).

 

Do you follow your instincts or wait for your head to catch up?

 

For as long as I can remember, my instincts have never failed me. Whether it’s choosing friends, lovers, opportunities or which way to go when lost, my instincts let me know what’s the best thing to do or where to go.

 

Instincts are nothing more than a feeling but many people ignore them, choosing to listen to their own head (or logic) instead. There’s nothing wrong with being cautious and using logic through critical thinking to make a decision. But sometimes logic fails us. I’ll give you an example.  

 

When MR N and I were deciding what our future plans would entail back when we were dating, we talked about who would move where. He suggested moving to Canada for five years and then seeing what we felt like doing next. I told him I had to think about it and I did. I sat down and wrote the pros and cons. See, I was living in California with my family surrounding me. If I moved to Canada, I’d be leaving friends and family in order to be with the man I loved. My head told me to stay and my instincts told me to go. I went with my instincts and I’ve never looked back.

 

Instincts are your inner compass, seeing the winds of change/opportunity long before your head does. Trust in your instincts and let them guide you.

Feeling #Grateful is a Great Way to Attract Positive Things/People! #inspiration #FridayFeeling


grateful

 

Looking for ways to attract positive things/people to your life?

 

Feel grateful for all you have, even the bad stuff.

 

I know that sounds like a weird concept but it’s totally true. Everything in your life, from the good to the bad, is a blessing. The obstacles are your training ground for what’s to come. Every victory is another feather in your cap. Both the good and the bad shape you into who you are.

 

So today and every day, give thanks for another day on the Earth and for everything in your life. It’ll attract positive things and people to you, like a magnet. Focus on the positive and the Universe will flock to your sunbeams of Light.

Having a Bad Friday? Realize Tomorrow’ll Be Better #inspiration #FridayFeeling #stress


terrible day

 

Having a bad Friday? 

 

Mr. N and I both woke up with horrific migraines. It’s raining cats and dogs outside, checked my email to find a birthday present for my grandparents has a shipping issues and I’m beyond exhausted. * looks around * Yup, this looks like a bad day.

 

We’ve all dealt with bad days and we need to remember the quote above. No matter how bad a day it is, we’ve just gotta get through it. For tomorrow may be the best day of our lives. 

 

So, while MR N and I go lay down soon, let’s be gentle with ourselves and look forward to tomorrow.

Instead of Worrying, Accept Some Things are Out of Your Control #inspiration #motivation


happiness

Are you worrying about things that are out of your control?

Worrying doesn’t lead to happiness. All it leads to stress and unhappiness.

Yesterday, I felt like the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. From the time I started working (8:00 am) until the time MR N came home from work, I was an hour behind. I had a to-do list a mile long and kept whispering, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.”

I had a choice. I could worry about how I was going to get everything done before 5:30 pm or I could work through my list, one item at a time.

Which one do you think I chose?

I went with the latter and it worked. Even though it felt like I was constantly behind, eventually I caught up and at 5:30 pm, I completed everything on my to-do list.

Worrying doesn’t do anything except distract you from getting a job done.

Take MR N’s advice: you never have to worry; all is in control.

So Come With Me… to Never Never Land! #inspiration #dreams #FridayFeeling

Tinker Bell wants to know if you’re ready for an adventure.

I woke up thinking about Peter Pan, Wendy and Tinker Bell this morning. One of my favorite stories, Peter Pan, ignites my imagination.

Life gets stressful and sometimes I wish I could fly off to Never Never Land (with MR N of course). All I’d have to do is think of happy thoughts and fly high in the sky.

What are some of your happy thoughts?

Go on, think hard.

Here’s a few of mine:

MR N

A bunny hopping along the grass, stopping every now and again to nibble.

Listening to Pink Floyd with my dad.

Reading a good book.

Walking/Shopping at our local Farmer’s Market with MR N.

A lavender-scented bubble bath.

The sound of birds chirping.

Life can be a grand adventure and you can create your own little version of Never Never Land. All you need is a child-like belief and happy thoughts. Soar above the toil and trouble of your day.

Tinker Bell is waiting for you.

Today’s a Fresh Start, a Blank Page so Make the Most of Today! #inspiration #FridayFeeling


fresh start

What’s your daily outlook?

Happy Friday, everyone! Today’s we’re talking about changing your outlook.

When you wake up in the morning, do you greet the day with a smile or a frown?

Even when I’m tired and feeling exhausted, sleeping through the alarm, there’s a little tingle of delight that courses through my veins as I get out of bed.

It’s a brand new day and I wonder what’s going to happen.

No matter what transpired yesterday or what will happen tomorrow, today’s a fresh start. Every sunrise signals a brand new day and you should remember that, especially today.

Don’t wallow in the past or pine for the future; grab today by the shirttails and take advantage of every opportunity!

Note: This weekend is a long weekend for us. Up here in Canada, it’s Victoria Day Weekend and we’re taking the next three days off. We’ll be back online on Tuesday.

Eeyore’s Conclusion: Life is Good! #inspiration #Friday #advice


Friday Eeyore quote

 

What makes you happy? 

Here are some things that make me happy:

A kiss from my husband in the morning.

The sun shining.

Seeing wildlife while taking my morning walk.

Laughing.

Writing.

Reading.

Watching Winnie the Pooh.

I grew up on the famous A.A. Milne series.  Every time I read or watch Winnie the Pooh (and his many friends), a smile spreads across my face.  It brings me back to a simpler time, my childhood.  I smile to myself and everything seems right with my world.

I love the above quote.  Eeyore says life is good, especially today because it’s Friday.  For those of you who are not familiar, Eeyore is a somber character.  He has troubles keeping his tail on, his house standing and many other things that bring him down.  His voice is low and sad.

But every once in awhile, he finds a balloon or a field of dandelions and is happy.  He doesn’t jump up and down.  He doesn’t scream excitedly.  He slightly smiles to himself and revels in it.

We could learn a lot from Eeyore.  Life can throw a lot at us.  It can be easy to be down and out.  But we have to remember to find what makes us happy and enjoy.

Find what makes you happy and hold onto it, even in the tough times.
