May your heart be filled with love, your stomach filled with delicious food and drink, your mind filled with gratitude and be sure to give thanks for everything in your life.

 

Me, I’m thankful for everything in my life and for each of you. You make my day with your comments and your friendship. Thank you for taking a moment out of your day to read my blog. I’m so grateful!

Make a #Gratitude List and Pray/Meditate Over It Daily! #inspiration #motivation #grateful


gratitude-1251137_640

 

Want to live a fulfilled life? Make a gratitude list.

 

Years ago, I attended a Christian event and the guest speaker (I can’t remember his name, sorry) brought up the idea of a gratitude list. He said in order to live a happy, spiritual life, one must be grateful for everything, even the bad stuff. He went on to say that when our focus is on the blessings, we don’t focus on what we don’t have. What a brilliant concept and something I’ve tried to incorporate into my life.

 

So, with Thanksgiving only two days away, I want you to sit down and make a gratitude list. It can be as long or short as you’d like. Keep it somewhere handy where you can look at it at least once a day. Read it aloud or to yourself. Commit it to memory if possible. 

 

Need an example to get you rolling? Here is my current gratitude list:

 

I’m grateful to be alive and have a healthy body.

 

I’m grateful to have the love of my life, MR N, to share all of life’s ups and downs. No matter what happens, he’s my rock and I’m so grateful for his unconditional love.

 

I’m grateful for the love of my family and friends. They’re the flowers of life and make my day beautiful (most of the time). lol!

 

I’m grateful for my spiritual life. I feel connected to the world and God.

 

I’m grateful for my blog/books/social media followers. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

 

I’m grateful to live in a safe neighborhood where I can walk to the store, bank and dining out.

 

I’m grateful to share my writing with the world.

 

What’s on your gratitude list? Share one thing on your gratitude list below.

Let #Gratitude Be Your Compass and You’ll Never Get Lost! #grateful #Thanksgiving #MondayBlogs


Grateful Heart

 

What good is gratitude? It can save your life!

 

It’s Thanksgiving week in America and I thought we’d talk about what we’re grateful for all week.

 

I love this infograph and look at it quite a bit, especially when I’m feeling low. Whether I’m feeling tired, sad or jaded, when I switch my thoughts to grateful ones, my outlook changes and the dark clouds lift from my spirit. I’m not saying my dark feelings don’t disappear completely and are replaced by rainbows and fluffy bunnies. What I am saying is when I concentrate on positive things in my life, I can combat the negative feelings.

 

Let gratitude be your compass and you’ll never get lost.

Gratitude is so Powerful It Should be Used Every Day! #gratitude #inspiration #FridayFeeling


Gratitude transform

 

Gratitude is powerful, so powerful that it can change the common into the extraordinary.

 

As many of you know, I’m a big supporter of being grateful for everything. Every morning I wake up and think to myself how blessed I am. I have a roof over my head, food to eat and the unconditional love of my husband. In reality, that’s all I need to be happy.

 

It’s Friday so today’s #FRIDAYFEELING is gratitude. Be grateful for all the people and things in your life. Be careful, though, because when you’re grateful your outlook changes from the mundane to unadulterated joy.

Stress Got You by the Throat? Remember This… #inspiration #ThursdayThoughts #stress


stress kc

 

Has stress got you in a chokehold? 

 

Remember one important thing —

 

God will never give you anything you can’t handle so don’t stress.

 

When I’m faced with a problem or a deadline, I tend to stress. It takes MR N giving me a shake along with some encouraging words to remind me that I can handle whatever is going on. I’ve been to hell and back several times (you’d think I’d be on their frequent flyer miles program) and the one thing I learned is that God gives me an added boost of strength when I need it most.

 

Listen, life is filled with wave after wave of disappointments, setbacks and obstacles. They’ll knock you on your bum and just when you think you don’t have the strength to handle another wave, it washes over you. Somehow (and who knows where the strength comes from) we get to our feet and face the wave head-on. We’re wobbly on our feet and utterly exhausted but we’re upright. That’s the key to handling stress: when you fall down, get back up. Realize that you have untapped courage and toughness, just waiting to be used.

Be the Champ That’s Inside You! #inspiration #motivation #WednesdayWisdom


believe in yourself

 

Do you realize you have a champion inside you, begging to be released?

 

Each of us are blessed with a special set of natural abilities and gifts. We have the potential to be great but only if we believe in ourselves. The road to victory is paved with beliefs, hard work and perseverance.

 

Take a look at some of the world’s successful people and you’ll discover that their starting points are very similar. No matter what occupation, each of these champions believed in themselves and their idea. Bill Gates, Tom Brady, Catherine the Great, Queen Elizabeth I, Jeff Bezos, Anne Mulcahy, A. J. Hinch, Paul Molitor are all champions.

 

Are you at a roadblock/obstacle and questioning yourself? Thinking about quitting? 

 

Dig deep inside, grab your champion within and form a united front. Believe in yourself even if the world doesn’t and you’ll be on your way to victory.

#Kindness is the Only Currency You Should Spend More Than You Earn! #TuesdayThoughts


Kindness Paris

 

In the great ledger of life, are you spending more kindness more than you earn?

 

Yesterday was World Kindness Day and while I’m a day late, my message still applies. Kindness is the only currency where it’s necessary to spend more than you make. Kindness is something that be freely given without thought to how it affects you or your budget. It doesn’t cost anything and it reaches farther than simply money.

 

Give yourself an audit. When was the last time you showed kindness and didn’t think about how it could benefit you? This morning? Yesterday? Last week? Last month? Can’t remember? Well, maybe it’s time to start investing kindness into your daily routine.

 

Each of us, no matter how much money we make, has the potential to be a Kindness King or Queen. Spread kindness to everyone you meet and see how it changes your corner of the world.

Never Be Afraid to Try New Things! #inspiration #MondayMotivation #MondayBlogs


try something different

 

Are you afraid to try new things for fear of failure or something else? 

 

When I was in my early twenties, I started to step out of my comfort zone. Before then, I was so afraid of what people might think or say that I only did what was “safe”. All safe got me was feeling lonely and unhappy. So, I scrunched up my courage and tried new things. Sometimes I failed but most of the time I discovered new paths and experiences.

 

We’re like a river, you and I; we have to keep moving or we’ll grow algae and poison ourselves. 

 

Last week, I tried a new cinnamon roll recipe and today we tried them for the first time. The result: cinnamon flavored bricks. Was I disappointed? Sure. Will I stop trying new recipes? No way! I learned that this particular recipe is utter crap, that’s all.

 

My advice and motivation for you: try new things and keep moving forward. You’ll never know if you like something unless you try. Don’t let the idea of possible failure prevent you from being adventurous.

ThursdayThoughts: Trust Your Instincts Instead of Your Head #inspiration #motivation


instincts

 

Do you trust your instincts?

 

I’m a good judge of character (most of the time) and no matter what’s going on, my instincts can tell what’s fake and what’s real. My instincts have gotten me out of some pretty harried situations and showed me the right way to go. Whether I listen to my instincts or not, that’s a whole different story.

 

When I first met MR N, there was something about him that clicked with me. It wasn’t only his good looks or the fact that he could cook that drew me in. I couldn’t quite put it into words what it was about him that my soul clung to. My instincts whispered, “He’s the one you’ve been looking for.” But then my head started screaming insecurities and doubt filled me. I should’ve listened to my instincts instead of my head and saved myself  over two years of heartache.

 

Have a big decision to make?

 

Trust your instincts and they’ll never misguide you.

Use Truth and Knowledge as Your Foundation For Life! #inspiration #WednesdayWisdom


truth and knowledge

 

What’s the foundation to your life?

 

I used to think that money and power were what I needed to build my life around. Successful people I admired had money and power but didn’t seem to be very happy. I knew I didn’t want to be poor but wondered if my focus was on the wrong thing. It wasn’t until I met MR N that my perspective shifted. Truth and wisdom were much stronger foundation stones than money and power.

 

Read the quote above and ask yourself if you’re following your heart while projecting truth. When your life is built on truth and knowledge, it can withstand any storm. When you are the embodiment of truth and love, people have no choice but to respond.

 

I constantly have to remind myself that even though I’m not famous and don’t go swimming in bags of money on my days off, I’m happy with the life I have and opportunities to make a difference. Truth. Follow your heart and let your life reflect truth and knowledge.

Teamwork is Nothing More Than Working Together in Unison Towards a Goal! #inspiration


Teamwork

 

No matter what team you’re on, when everyone is working towards the same goal, the result is nothing more than success. 

 

Last night, MR N and I wanted to play The Legend of Zelda on our SNES system. Even though it’s one player, MR N came up with a plan. We’d take turns and work together as a team. We each got 10 minutes (or until we died from those drat bluish-gray guards) to play. With each go-round, we learned who to avoid and what to do. As a result, we rescued Princess Zelda and found our way out of the castle. Yippee!

 

The only way we could’ve done passed the level is through teamwork. We helped each other navigate the castle and its pitfalls, all while cheering each other on.

 

Teamwork is working together towards a common goal. It doesn’t matter who gets credit (at least in our opinion) as long as we attain our goal. 

 

So the next time you’re dealing with something difficult, grab your teammates and figure out how to overcome the pitfalls. You’ll soon be whizzing past your goal in no time.

What’s the Greatest Lesson You’ve Learned in Life? #inspiration #motivation #MondayBlogs


david-bowie-love

 

What’s the greatest life lesson you’ve learned?

 

From the time I was little, I tried to love everything and everyone. My parents said I was a bundle of love and I wanted to shower the world with love. Sometimes my love was returned and at other times, I was rejected. I was called weird, odd and adorable.

 

Was a I deterred as I grew older? Probably but when I started this blog back in 2013, my inner child came out. I love each and every one of my blog followers (yes, even you!) and I try to promote love instead of hate.

 

See, love is the greatest life lesson I’ve learned and I want to share my experiences with others. I want people to know what it’s like to be loved unconditionally. I want people to know that they’re not alone. There’s no need to be afraid or lonely; love is with you, no matter what happens.

 

Take Bowie’s advice (and mine too) and love. Don’t let hate win. Love everything and everyone. Let your love blow people over and be the epitome of unconditional love.

I’m Unstoppable… Are You? Nothing Can Stop You! #inspiration #FridayFeeling


unstoppable

 

Choose to be unstoppable!

 

When I was little, I was told that I could do anything, the world was my oyster, etc. As a ten year old, I was filled with big dreams and aspirations.

 

When I became an adult and entered the “real world”, my dreams were replaced by working hard and making money. I shoved my dreams in the back of the closet and was, in fact, miserable.

 

It wasn’t until I started this blog did my dreams come back to the forefront of my mind. Through hard work and persistence, I made my dream come true of being a published author.

 

I’m unstoppable.

 

Don’t bury your dreams or replace your aspirations with reality. Your dreams can be your reality. You have the capability of being anything, just like when you were young.

 

Are you ready?

 

Write down your dreams and remember to dream big. Every day (or several times a day), meditate over your dreams and create a plan to make them reality. Then do it!

 

Let this be your daily meditation:

 

I choose to be unstoppable. I am bigger than my concerns and worries. The strength of others inspires me daily. I focus on my goal. I trust my intuition and live a courageous life.

 

Look at you; you’re unstoppable!!

Stop Focusing on How Big the Obstacle is and Focus on How Big YOU are! #inspiration #Astros


change

 

Are you facing an uphill battle and don’t know how you can possibly reach the top? 

 

Stop focusing on the size of the obstacle in front of you and instead, focus on how much strength and power you have!

 

So many times over the course of my life, I’ve failed because I was focusing on the wrong thing. I was so focused on my problems that my self-confidence plummeted. It wasn’t until I concentrated on my inner strength and ability to conquer things twice as big in the past that I was able to overcome obstacles. 

 

A great example of this is this year’s World Series Champions, the Houston Astros. Coming into the playoffs, the Astros were pretty much ignored by the media and certain MLB Network on-air personalities. They had the best record in the American League but that didn’t seem to mean anything. No one thought the Astros could do it.

 

Coming into last night’s game seven, both teams’ bullpens were battered. It all came down to this game. Which team would land on top? The odds were in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ favor.

 

Did the Astros concentrate on how gigantic the task was to win or did they concentrate on how, as a team, to band together and win?

 

The Houston Astros are World Champions!

 

Stop focusing on your problems and how they seem impossible to overcome. Focus your energy on how you’re going to defeat these challenges. Come up with a plan and then get going. You have all the tools needed to be a champion, just like the Houston Astros!

 

Congratulations to the Houston Astros on a fantastic year and for being this year’s World Champions!!!

Do Something Fun and Frivolous Today! #inspiration #motivation #games #WednesdayWisdom


Do Fun

 

When was the last time you did something fun, something that made you feel like a kid?

 

Life is so serious, too serious most of the time, and we need to unwind from all the stress and pressure.

 

On Monday, we finally got our brand new Nintendo SNES game system. We’ve been clamoring for it ever since it came out at the end of September. It was all sold out and we finally found one online at a good price. It’s a throwback to the 1990’s Super Nintendo and it’s freaking fabulous!

 

Yesterday was a stressful day for me. I had so much to do at work and not enough hours in the day to do it in. At dinner, I stared bleary-eyed at the television. MR N nudged me and suggested that after he got done with his email, we could play a game. I said sure. Even though I didn’t do very well playing Donkey Kong Worlds, I had fun. I released pent-up energy and felt like a kid again. 

 

Take the weight of the world off your shoulders for a moment and embrace your inner kid. Do something that makes you forget your troubles and have fun! Fun is under-rated these days and needs to be a part of our everyday life. Trust me on this.

 

What do you do for fun? Share in the comments below.

Happy #Halloween! Take This Day to Unleash Your Creativity! #inspiration #TuesdayThoughts


Halloween creative

 

Happy Halloween, my friends!

 

I love Halloween because for one day/night, I get to shed off the regular ‘ol me and be something else entirely. I remember from the time I was four years old, I’ve been creative with my costumes. I’ve been Wonder Woman, Princess Leia, Strawberry Shortcake, a black cat, a witch and a book.

 

Halloween is a time to unleash your creativity. Whether you dress up or not, embrace the spirit of Halloween. It’s a time to throw away your fears and try something new. Free your creative side and see what happens. Rejoice in the act of fun and let your inner child take over. 

 

Happy Halloween!

Excerpt:

 

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman

 

I have a dream.  My dream is to be a writer, blogger and author.  My dream is to use words to uplift people and change the world.  I continue to work hard on my dream.  Achieving a dream doesn’t mean the work stops.

 

What is your dream?

 

No matter what your dream is or how far-fetched it may seem, you can make your dream come true!  According to Harriet Tubman, all you need is strength, patience and passion.  Sure, it takes a lot of work but let me tell you, it is worth it!

 

Can dreams change the world?  You bet!  Harriet Tubman is the woman who created the Underground Railroad.  She had a dream of her people being free.  Through her internal strength, she created a network of brave men and women who helped a multitude of slaves get to the North.  She didn’t fear death because she had a dream and she was passionate about her dream.

 

Today, take a few moments and write down your innermost dreams.  Then outline a plan to make your dream come true.  List all the things you may encounter to prevent you from making your dream come true.  Finally, come up with a plan to defeat those obstacles and make your dream come true!

 

Your dreams can change the world!  Your internal strength, patience and passion will make it possible.

Are the people around you supporting you and your ambitions through positive thoughts and encouragement or are you surrounded by people who belittle you all in the name of “love”?

 

If you’ve been a follower of the POTL blog for awhile, you know I’m all about having big dreams and reaching for the stars. I’m a big proponent that everyone can do great things, more so if they cast off inhibitions and self-doubt.

 

I remember when I was in grade school and our assignment was to write an essay on what we wanted to do when we grew up. I wrote how I wanted to be President of the United States. I talked about how I’d help the poor and enact into law the requirement that everyone would be fed. When I got my essay back, I got an A- and the teacher wrote the following:

 

“You have an interesting view on how life should be and I applaud your ideals. However, no woman has (or will ever) be President of the United States. You can be an excellent First Lady, though.”

 

Talk about a bummer. Here I was, the ripe old age of nine, being told I couldn’t be a leader of a country just because I was a female. It didn’t sit well with me, especially since I had just read, “Free to be You and Me,” by Marlo Thomas.

 

The teacher, while trying to be “helpful”, belittled my dream and told me I couldn’t be President on the basis of my gender. 

 

There’ve been so many times I heard I couldn’t be/do something. If I listened to the naysayers, I wouldn’t be a successful entrepreneur and I wouldn’t be an award-winning author. My secret to success? A supportive group of people who uplift me when I need it most and don’t squash my goals as “too big” or “unreachable”.

 

If you have friends/family who fall into the naysayer group, it’s time to distance yourself as best as you can. Connect with people who encourage you and don’t tell you no. Nothing is unreachable and only you can limit what you can do!

Success is No Accident. It Is Hard Work, Perseverance and More! #inspiration #FridayFeeling


success is no accident

 

One of the greatest traits both of our fathers instilled in us: a strong work ethic. Nothing comes easy and in order to achieve success, you have to work your bum off.

 

Are you struggling for success at work, school, home and society? Do you feel like giving up because it’s too hard? Stay the course! 

 

We’ve been working on creating an inspirational thought book (365 days worth) for the past nine months. It’s been hard work, let me tell you. We had to figure out which inspirational thoughts deserved to be in the book and which didn’t. We had to edit, re-edit and edit again. We had to research copyright law and make sure we weren’t in violation. We had to edit again. We had to hire a cover designer and get the perfect cover. We had to proofread and proofread again. Final tweaks are being done today and then it’s off to the formatter this weekend.

 

We did all this work while trying to work two jobs, run a business, deal with certain personal matters, keep up with friends and family, not to mention sleep and eat. There were roadblocks and times when we were so exhausted, we looked like ten miles of bad road. But we kept going. We knew this was an important book that needed to be published because it’s filled with truth and love.

 

Success may seem out of reach but every time you feel that way, recite the quote above. You can do it, no matter what! Success is no accident and at the end of the journey, you’ll be amazed by all that you accomplished!

The Big Moments are Life Changing and a Test of Your Mettle #inspiration #motivation #BtVS


big-moments-jw

 

Are you dealing with a life-altering change that came out of nowhere?

 

I can relate. I’ve been there and so has Buffy.

 

One of my favorite television shows of all time is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Every episode is filled with scary monsters but also real life. Buffy is a normal teenage girl, except for the fact that she’s a vampire slayer. Every week, she must balance two lives: her teenage life (what, grounded again?) and her slayer life (you couldn’t go suck on some other town?).

 

The above quote is one of my favorite all-time quotes from Buffy. It talks about something we can all deal with: big moments. Joss nailed it when he said that even if we see it coming, we’re not prepared.

 

Lose a job, spouse, friend, lover?

 

Big moment.

 

Confronted with a moral dilemma and not sure what to do?

 

Big moment.

 

It doesn’t matter what the big moment is; what counts is what we do afterwards.

 

Whether we stand tall or cower in the corner, our actions/motivations show the world who we are.

 

So the next time a big moment arrives, pause and dig deep in yourself and ask:

 

What would Buffy do?

 

No, I’m kidding. That only works for me.

 

Meditate/Pray/Reflect on who you are and how this big moment can, in the long run, make you a better person. We’re all molded clay and each big moment is the potter’s hands creating a masterpiece (us).

When You Look Back at Your Life, What Do You See? #inspiration #motivation #WednesdayWisdom


dream life

 

Are you living a life of what ifs or are you plunging forward experiencing all that life has to offer?

 

I read a newsletter from a fellow author this morning that really touched me. After suffering a miscarriage, her perspective on life changed. She said her unborn daughter taught her to take nothing for granted. “Life is short and I didn’t want regrets.” That was five years ago and she’s now a bestselling full-time author.

 

I used to be afraid to take life by the horns. I was scared of being hurt, I guess. I stayed in my comfort zone and was, to be honest, miserable. My heart was yearning for more yet I was a chicken. It wasn’t until I got engaged and moved to a new country that I started living life to the fullest. MR N inspired me to shoot for the moon and I did. 

 

When your life is over, will you exclaim, “I can’t believe what I accomplished!” or will you say in a meek whisper, “I wish I did ______.”?

 

Don’t wait for life to pass you by and all you’re left with is a handful of wishes and a ton of regrets. You’re never too old (or too young) to start something new. Carve a path for yourself and keep trying new things. Don’t be afraid of failure or getting hurt. You’ll never know what you’re capable of accomplishing until you try. Go for it!

Second-Guessing Yourself? It’s Time to Own It and Slay Your Beast! #inspiration #Astros #MLB


second guess

 

Do you second-guess yourself and what you’re trying to accomplish in life?

 

According to baseball great Don Mattingly, this is a good thing. When you second-guess yourself, it means you’re striving for great things and improving yourself. This reminds me of game 7 of the ALCS (American League Championship Series).

 

It was the Houston Astros against the New York Yankees. Everyone, it seems, wanted the Yankees to win and didn’t give the Astros a shot at winning. It was  Sabathia pitching for the Yankees and Charlie Morton pitching for the Astros. The last time these two pitchers met it was a blow-out in Yankee Stadium and Morton got crushed.

 

I’m sure that before game 7 Charlie Morton was second-guessing himself. I mean, this was it, the Astros last shot to get to the world series. Could he do it? Could he slay the Yankee beast? Could he prove to the MLB Network and the rest of baseball that he belonged?

 

Long story short, he defeated the Yankees and the Houston Astros are playing game 1 of the world series against the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight. The Houston Astros are proof-positive that no matter how many times you second-guess yourself, you’re making yourself better, stronger and more powerful.

 

So the next time you feel doubts creep in and start second-guessing your path, own it. It’s only your inner self gathering inner strength to make changes and improve yourself. 

 

Oh and GO ASTROS!!!!

Encourage One Another for Your Words May Uplift Someone! #inspiration #affirmations #MondayBlogs


Encouragement

 

Have you been going through a rough patch and second-guessing yourself?

 

We’ve all been there and know exactly what you’re going through. It’s tough and the only way to get through it is to persevere. You may be feeling like you want to give up but trust me, it’ll get better. Don’t give up!

 

Last year, as many of you know, we published a poetry book entitled Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year. Its basic premise is our real-life courtship from the day we got engaged until our wedding day. MR N was working 18 hours a day and we hardly saw each other. He expressed his love and our struggles through poems. We collected them and published them last Fall.

 

Sunday we woke up to discover our poetry book won the following award:

 

finalist

2017 IAN Book of the Year – Poetry Finalist Award

 

We were so surprised! It was so unexpected because most of the awards were announced the previous weekend.

 

Winning this award encouraged me in ways I can’t express. See, I’d been struggling with self-doubt about my writing. I was having a hard time making the stories come out and while it’s not writer’s block, it sure felt like a dead end. I kept wondering if maybe I should just concentrate on building our author promotions business instead of writing. Then this award appeared and my doubts fled. A panel of judges deemed our writing worthy of an award.

 

There are many of us who are discouraged by life and suffer in silence. We’d love to ask for an uplifting comment but are afraid to ask. Encourage someone today. Encourage more than one person today. Your words of support will give that someone a much-needed boost of confidence. 

 

Encourage one another and change someone’s life!
