Find Your Inner Joy at a Dark Moment and It Will Burn Out the Pain! #inspiration #motivation


joy-burn-pain

 

What’s your inner joy memory/thought/idea/place? 

 

When life throws you down a dark vortex where you can’t see what’s in front of you, where you have no idea what to do next, how do you make it through? I focus on my inner joy. It can be a happy memory, a future event that you’re really excited about, a thought you can meditate or a place to go to.

 

Last October, we started planning our Summer vacation. Last year’s vacation was a nightmare and we were more stressed out when we came back than when we left. We discussed it and decided to go all out for our 2017 vacation. We scrimped and saved everything we could to make it happen. We endured hardships and there were a few times when I doubted we could make it. But here we are, one day and hours from our dream vacation.

 

How did I deal with the stress and anxiety? 

 

Simple. I thought about our suite at the resort we’ll be staying at, with its skylight over our bed, the fireplace nook and the exquisite food at the restaurant on-site. This thought, this idea, this place was my inner joy, my secret sanctuary, and it got me through anything that came my way.

 

What’s your secret sanctuary? 

 

Whenever you’re in the midst of stress, anxiety or whatever dark cavern you may be stuck in, concentrate on your inner joy and like the quote says, the joy will purge the pain and strife.

Are You Smiling Today? A Simple Smile Changes the World! #inspiration #smile #motivation


smile mother teresa

 

Did you know your smile is the greatest weapon of Light you possess? 

 

Every smile you bestow is like a soothing salve to others, more addictive than your favorite junk food. When you smile a genuine smile, people will want to be closer to you and to discover why you’re smiling.

 

I remember a good friend of mine that I used to work with when I was a bookstore manager. No matter what was going on or how busy it got in the store, she smiled. She’d wish everyone a great day, even the grumpiest customers, with a kind word and a smile. I watched with amazement as each person’s face would change and they couldn’t help but smile.

 

Dealing with a hard day or a bad mood? Smile and watch the world around you shift from moody to happiness. It doesn’t take any effort to smile and the lasting effects on others can’t be measured but I’d bet it makes a huge difference.

 

So take out your greatest weapon and smile!

Feeling Overwhelmed? Follow These Tips! #inspiration #motivation #stress


stress overwhelming

 

Feeling overwhelmed? 

 

This is the last week before vacation and both MR N and I are feeling overwhelmed. The stress is high, so high in fact that I’ve developed a skin rash (Hives). I can’t get away from the stress and honestly, all I want to do is escape to our summer vacation a few days early. Since that isn’t possible, I deal with the stress the best way I know how: I follow the above 5 tips.

 

Stress affects us all in different ways and it’s how we cope that matters. Don’t internalize the stress but release it. Go for a walk or get some exercise. Take deep breaths. Realize you can only control what you can control. Eat healthy. Be gentle with yourself and keep your temper in check (no flying off the handle). 

 

Once we take these steps to deal with stress, we won’t feel so overwhelmed. Stress will take a vacation, at least for a little while, and that is the best feeling in the world.

Is the World Against You? Refocus and Then Take Flight! #inspiration #motivation #MondayBlogs


perseverance

 

Are you struggling and it feels like the world is against you? 

 

It’s time to refocus. Instead of saying to yourself, “woe is me”, envision you’re a mighty airplane and take off. Airplanes, no matter the size, take off against the wind. That’s pretty impressive when you think about it. An airplane, in order to reach its destination, first has to encounter massive resistance. It can’t leave the ground, let alone fly, without gravity and wind pushing against it.

 

What if, today and every day, we imagine ourselves to be a jet and every obstacle we receive is just allowing us to fly to new heights?

 

Shift your perspective and welcome resistance. Before you know it, you’ll be flying among the stars.

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!

Motivate Yourself to Great Heights Like a Bird! #inspiration #ThursdayThoughts #motivation


bird motivation

 

Need some motivation? Be like a bird and fly.

 

Every day I wake up, thinking about my upcoming vacation. I pine for it, think about it constantly and it’s my motivation right now. No matter how steep my workload is or all that I have to do, I think about the oasis I’m soon to be in and it gives me a jolt of energy.

 

We all have times throughout the year where we feel stressed, stymied and in need of a break. Our minds don’t wanna work as hard, our bodies are exhausted and we snap at loved ones. It’s time to plan an escape, even if its for a few hours. 

 

We have a family of hawks in our neighborhood. On the weekends, MR N and I love to watch the hawks soar overhead, looking for its latest meal. They’re so majestic and their wingspan is impressive. Once they’ve eaten, they soar to the tallest evergreen tree to rest.

 

The hawks are the perfect example for us this morning. They’re motivated by hunger and take flight.  We can do the same. By spreading our wings and concentrating on our goal (for me it’s my vacation), we climb higher and higher into the sky.

 

If you’re in need of motivation, be like a bird and fly.

Your Journey Begins With a Single Step… #inspiration #WednesdayWisdom #goals


journey

 

Are you struggling with life and feel like your dreams are out of reach?

 

Making your dreams a reality comes down to a series of single steps. Taking one step at a time, edging closer to your goals, is the most effective way to reaching your dreams. Sure, you can try to take a shortcut but in my experience, it only detours you.

 

Five years ago, if you had told me I’d be a published author and co-running an author promotions business, I wouldn’t have believed you. I would’ve told you, and I quote, “You’re freakin’ out of your mind. I’m not an entrepreneur; I can’t even balance our household budget.” It’s interesting what can happen in five years when you take it one step at a time.

 

It’s not easy, making your dreams come true. In fact, it takes a lot of hard work, perseverance, faith and sacrifices. They’ll be obstacles so high, you won’t have a clue how you’ll overcome. The key is to not pole vault to the finish line but to take it one step at a time.

 

What goals/dreams are you pursuing? Feeling worn out or discouraged? Don’t be. Instead, look at all you’ve accomplished then focus on the next step. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Believe in Yourself or Else No One Else Will! #inspiration #TuesdayMotivation #motivation


believe in yourself

 

Are you your own life coach, believing in yourself when no one does?

 

Last night, we watched MLB’s Home Run Derby. We hadn’t watched it in a few years but we wanted to see Aaron Judge from the New York Yankees put on a show. Aaron Judge is 6′ 7″ and leads the league in home runs. He’s a giant on the field and the Home Run Derby wouldn’t be relevant if Judge wasn’t in it.

 

Through each round, players hit monster home runs but each time Judge hit, everyone stopped and watched him, awe shining in their eyes. His raw power and speed on display for all to see. But it’s his story that also resonates. He was adopted the day after he was born to two teachers. He worked hard, especially in the minor leagues. When he got called up last Fall, he stunk. His batting average was poor and was sent down to the minors.

 

Did that stop him? Do you think he gave up on himself and quit?

 

No! He worked harder than ever and this Spring, made the starting team. He’s having a Ruth-like year and as a baseball fan, he’s exciting to watch. I know in my gut that he never stopped believing in himself and is a prime example of what it takes to believe in yourself when the rest of the world doesn’t.

 

Believe in yourself because if you don’t, then no one else will. It’s more than confidence, believing in yourself propels you into the Universe and brings your dreams within your grasp. You won’t reach your dreams unless you have an unwavering belief in yourself and what you can achieve.

Respect One Another: It’s the Right Thing to Do #inspiration #MondayMotivation #MondayBlogs


respect one another

 

Take a look around and you’ll see why it’s so important to respect one another.

 

The world is filled with hatred, jealousy, greed, etc. Various world leaders engage in a war of words that could set off the end of the world for all of us. Average, normal people act in ways that prop up hatred and violence. It’s easy to let darkness cover our hearts and follow others’ examples but I’m begging you to resist going down that path. Instead, follow my example and respect one another.

 

We all have different beliefs and we’re special in our own way. We’re unique in our life experiences and perceptions. Instead of pointing out our differences, let’s respect each other. We may not agree with everyone but that doesn’t give us the right to judge.

 

So whether it is online or in person, listen to what the other person is saying and coming from. Respect them as a fellow human being. You don’t have to be a ‘yes’ man or woman, just an understanding one.

#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.

Laughing is the Prescribed Medicine for Today! #inspiration #motivation #ThursdayThoughts


laughing

 

Want to feel good? All you have to do is laugh.

 

The stress and exhaustion is at an all-time high for us. It’s the big countdown to our vacation and we’re busier than ever. How do we release our stress? We laugh.

 

When we laugh, we release much-needed endorphins and honestly, it just feels good. Whether it’s a television show, movie, book or even a hilarious news story, we find it funny and laugh. Go ahead and laugh; it’s healthy and natural medicine.

Out of Clutter, Find Simplicity #inspiration #motivation #WednesdayWisdom


clutter simplicity

 

Summer has arrived and while some of us are on vacation (16 days until we go on vacation), many of us are dealing with an overloaded workload. The kids are out of school and looking for stuff to do. Friends want to get together and all you want to do is go to the beach.

 

When my life gets cluttered, I seek the simple things. Soothing music, an absorbing book,  fresh flower bouquets my husband brings home, good food, a few cocktails and snuggling with Mr. N are just a few of my summertime pleasures.  While they may not seem exciting or thrilling, they bring me peace and happiness.

 

Life can get chaotic, especially during the Summer. Find joy in the little things and you’ll be at peace.

I’m so #Grateful for Those Who Fought So We Could Celebrate #IndependenceDay! #inspiration


4th of july LG

 

Happy 4th of July!!!

 

If you’re an American, you are probably on your way to the beach or sleeping in.  I have always loved the 4th of July!  Spending time with family, great food and drink, fireworks, sun and so much more!

 

It wasn’t until later that I learned what the 4th of July really meant.  It meant giving thanks and showing gratitude for the freedoms I had.

 

I love this quote from Lee Greenwood and he sums it up perfectly!

 

I thank all the men and women who have served, fought and died for my freedoms.  I will never forget and I am forever grateful!

 

Before you go out to celebrate the festivities, take a moment and thank those brave men and women who died so that you could be free!

 

Happy Independence Day!!!

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.

“I’m 15 years from 100 But Why Not?” #Inspiration from a Grandfather! #ThursdayThoughts


Dreams

 

Think you’re too old to go after a dream or try something new? 

 

Pshaw! You’re never too old!

 

I had a lovely conversation with my grandfather yesterday. He just turned 85 and we were catching up. He told me all about his weekly men’s prayer group. He’s the leader of it but when he was asked to lead the group, he wasn’t sure he was right for the job.

 

“I sat down, made up a list of the reasons not to do it then threw it away. I’m fifteen years away from turning 100. I’m too old,” he said. “But then I thought, why not try it? It’s close by and I love to teach. The men are great and we meet at IHOP. So, it’s good food and good company.”

 

“You’re never too old, Grandpa. Look at C. S. Lewis. He has this great quote.” Then I quoted the above quote. “Plus, you’ve always been a great teacher. It’s one of your gifts and you’re helping others. Just like you taught me.”

 

“That’s right! I might live to be 125.” He chuckled.

 

My grandfather has been an inspiration to me since I can remember. He taught me so much about life, love and working hard. He taught me how important it was to give back, to help those less fortunate. Sure, he wasn’t perfect and had his own flaws but that didn’t matter to me. He was my grandpa, he is my grandpa and when I turn 85, I hope I’m active like him.

 

Think you’re too old to go back to school, switch careers, travel, explore your dreams or start new ones? Take my grandpa’s advice and go for it. If he can do it, you can too.

Inspirational Quotes about Life by @pschmi02 #bookreview #quotes #inspiration


Inspirational Quotes

 

Title: Inspirational Quotes about Life (Wisdom Quotes Illustrated Book 2)

Author: Philip G. Schmitz

Genre: Inspiration, Quotes, Self-Improvement

 

Book Blurb:

This is Book 2 in the Wisdom Quotes Illustrated series. It features bold images, reflections, and quotes about optimism, courage, love, and some 30 other topics.

So what’s in it for you?

Quotes inspire us by focusing attention on things we already know, or at least sense. It might be fun to dial back a notch and simply call them “reminders.”

For example, remember that you’re free to define yourself, let go of the past, and choose your own road. Remember that life is more than a destination, it’s the entire journey. Enjoy it now and keep worry in check.

Always had something you wanted to try? Imagine the impossible, and then start by taking small steps. For strength, look inside. Don’t be afraid of mistakes. Keep in mind that they’re the tuition you pay for experience.

“Quotes on Life” also reminds you to cultivate the more reflective traits, such as forgiveness and gratitude. They can do more to improve your life than almost anything else. What about altruism and generosity? When you give, you actually gain. And maybe patience isn’t your greatest strength, but have you ever tried to push a river?

Here’s a suggestion: the first time you open the book, scroll through and simply enjoy the pictures. They will entertain you. Then come back to the table of contents and focus in on your special interests.

“You have escaped your cage. Your wings are stretched out. Now fly.”~Rumi

 

My Review:

The author really nailed it with this effort.  He uses many great quotes to illustrate the points he’s trying to get across. The author is heavily influenced clearly by some of the most inspirational writers today, both in print and on the web.

 

Using his voice to bring to life the sections is a vast improvement over the first work.  His style brings each point home and lets the reader contemplate how he/she can apply it to his/her own life. A brilliant piece that will make you feel better.

 

This book is a guidebook on how to live life correctly.  A good read for everyone.

Here’s the Secret to a Successful and Happy Life #inspiration #motivation #WednesdayWisdom


life is too short

 

What’s the key to a successful and happy life?

 

Every person I know (me included) craves a happy life, rich in success and achievement. We want to leave a legacy, experience all that life has to offer and to be loved. It sounds simple enough but it’s anything but. Obstacles and opinions impede us from our goals and dreams. So, how do we attain success? Follow this wise advice:

 

Life is too short to worry about stupid stuff. Have fun. Fall in love. Regret nothing, and don’t let people bring you down.

 

Stop sweating the small stuff, as a wise author once wrote. Focus on having fun and reaching your goals. Love others and be loved in return. Chuck regrets out the window and say good-bye to negative and toxic people.

 

If you adjust your perspective to these tenants, you’re bound to be successful and much more happier. It starts and ends with you. So, get going! Life is waiting for you.

Embrace Your Inner Creativity and Show the World What it Means to be Creative! #inspiration


creative people

Are you a creative person?

 

From the time I used my first box of crayons, I’ve been creative. Being creative comes second-nature to me and I’m proud to say I’m a creative person.

 

That wasn’t always the case. When I entered the work force at the ripe age of fifteen, my creativity was squashed. It wasn’t a favorable trait and got me in trouble more times than I care to remember. I was labelled an outcast and a rebel. Me? A rebel? You bet.

 

Have you buried your inner creative self? Isn’t it time you unleashed it from its dungeon? 

 

I firmly believe that everyone has a creative side. Some people are afraid to explore it while many of us were told it wasn’t logical or appropriate so we hid it away. Read again the quote from the famous painter, Henri Matisse.

 

“Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.”

 

That sounds like someone I’d like to be and I refuse to hide my creativity any longer. Embrace your creative side and create. The world needs more people who love to play. Who’s with me?

Let Your Imagination Run Away… #inspiration #motivation #MondayBlogs


imagination

 

Has your imagination run away from home? Have you reported it as a missing persons?

 

My imagination has run away so many times, I’ve lost count. I don’t fret, though, because each time it runs away, it comes back with amazing possibilities. If I had kept it hidden away under lock and key…

 

I never would’ve become a bestselling author.

 

I never would’ve married my soul mate and beloved husband.

 

I never would’ve started an author promotions business.

 

I never would’ve started this blog.

 

I never would’ve known how strong I am or what I could do.

 

Letting your imagination free is the first step towards success and living out your dreams. Don’t let fear of the unknown stall your life. Make the following statement a foundation for your life:

 

I have a habit of letting my imagination run away from me. It always comes back, though… drenched with possibilities.

No Matter What’s Happening in Your Life, You’re Flawless! #inspiration #love #motivation


Flawless MR N

 

Do you know that you’re flawless?

 

Yesterday, MR N was dealing with some stressful customer service issues. Talking with a co-worker he blurted out, “He wants flawless? Nothing in this world is flawless except for my beloved wife.”

 

Aww!

 

Yes, I have the best husband in the world. Yes, he’s loving and we’re an adorable couple. But that’s not what today’s inspirational thought is about.

 

For as long as I can remember, I have been my own worst critic. I beat myself up over the littlest thing and I can’t seem to break this vicious cycle. That is, until yesterday. When MR N told me what he said, it resonated deep within. I’m flawless.

 

I decided to do a little test for the rest of the day. Whenever a negative thought popped into my head, I’d counter it by whispering, “I’m flawless”. Not in a cocky way but in an honest way.

 

It worked. My self esteem lifted and my positive spirit returned.

 

Each of us are flawless. We’re a beautiful, rare jewel and we shouldn’t listen to others who say otherwise.

 

Take a moment, look in the mirror and repeat after me: I’m flawless. Mr. N and Mrs. N thinks I’m flawless. It’s the truth.

 

Nothing in this world is flawless except for you.

Erase Disappointment in Your Heart and You’ll Be Blessed #inspiration #Tuesdaymotivation


expectations

 

Is disappointment causing your heart to hurt and stealing your happiness?

 

We all deal with disappointments. Work, school, family, friends all disappoint us at one time or another. But the easiest way to deal with disappointment is to not expect anything.

 

I see you scratching your head but stick with me for a moment and you’ll soon understand what I’m talking about.

 

When I first agreed to marry MR N, I had a bunch of high expectations. I thought life was going to be like a trip through Oz, all happy and carefree. I expected certain things from my family and when they disappointed me, I was crushed. I cried on MR N’s shoulder. Then he gave me some sage advice.

 

“Expect nothing and you’ll be blessed. When you have no expectations and something good happens, it’ll be a happy surprise. When you expect good things to happen and they don’t, you’ll be miserable.”

 

Since that day, I’ve tried to not have expectations. Sure, I slip now and again; I’m human. But as a rule, I don’t expect anything in return. I’m kind to be kind, not to get kindness in return. I love others, not to be loved in return but because it’s a part of me.

 

Tip of the day: Have no expectations and be blessed.

Life Isn’t Supposed to Paralyze You But to Help You #inspiration #MondayBlogs


life challenges

 

Are you feeling paralyzed by all that life is throwing at you? 

 

Each struggle we go through is like a session in the great big kiln of life. We’re moulding clay and still in the creating process. Everything we go through, whether good or bad, adds more definition to our form. It hurts sometimes… okay it hurts a lot, but it’s good for us. We’d never know our inner strength and courage if we didn’t experience struggles and failures.

 

I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it hadn’t been for all the times I messed up. Each was a learning experience and I’m a better person for it. For all the times I hit a dead end, I had a choice: give up or retrace my steps to find the right path. Guess which one I chose?

 

I know you’re feeling stressed out and not knowing how much more you can take. Don’t let the fire inside the great kiln of life paralyze you with fear. Think of it like taking off extra layers in order to release the god/goddess within. 

 

Look at your road blocks/challenges in the face and say, “I’m ready!” Then watch to see the changes in you.

Author: Philip G. Schmitz

Genre: Self-Help, Motivational, Quotes

My Review:

This is a great book for a device because you could remind yourself of your go-to quote with the swipe of a finger.  There is a lot here and there is something for everyone.

 

I defy a morose and negative person to make it through this book without feeling more positive!

 

If you want something short, hard hitting and fast then this book is for you.  A brief into to, at least the sections, might have provided more depth but otherwise this little book is a triumph.

 

Recommended for anyone and everyone.

Philip G Schmitz

 

Author Biography:

Life is like a gemstone. Let’s hold it under the light and watch it sparkle.

Born in Princeton, NJ, Philip Schmitz spent his formative decades in Salzburg, Austria. His exposure to a foreign culture exerted an enormous influence on his life.

As a professional translator, he has written well over a million words. Although much of his work was printed between the covers of books (12) and published online, it left him unsatisfied.

Wisdom Quotes Illustrated is his first attempt at publishing on the subjects that matter to him most: learning, developing, and changing; staying inspired and motivated; and cultivating a positive, optimistic frame of mind even—and especially—when difficult situations arise.

His goal is to produce a series of books that will provide awareness and insight, and encourage personal growth.

Philip lives in Connecticut. When he’s not up to his neck in a translation or busily collecting quotes for his next book, he enjoys baking cakes and can found walking in the quiet recesses of nearby nature preserves.
