Did You Know Your Longings are Universal? #inspiration #motivation #TuesdayThoughts


longing

 

Did you know that we are all connected? 

 

No matter where you live or what language you speak, we are connected.  Read the quote above and think about your favorite book.

 

Then ask yourself why you love that book so much.

 

One of my favorite books of all time is Time Traveler’s Wife.  I love this book because it speaks of destiny, soulmates and love.  When I first read the book, I had just gotten engaged.  MR N and I read the book out loud together.  I felt so connected to Claire and to Henry.

 

In this world we live in, there are so many people who are lonely and want desperately to belong.  I wish I could give each of them a hug and tell them that they are beautiful.  They belong and do not need to be lonely anymore.

 

Do you feel lonely?  Do you want to belong?  Grab a hold of your favorite book, my hand and let’s travel through this life together.

The World Needs You! Come Alive and Make a Difference! #inspiration #motivation #Friday


come alive

 

Happy Friday, everyone! 

 

Today, my thoughts turn towards helping others and making a difference. I came across this quote and it caused me to stop and think.

 

Am I asking the wrong question when I ask myself what can I do to make a difference? Maybe what I need to do is ask myself what makes me come alive. 

 

If I was honest with myself, what makes me come alive, what makes me spring from my bed every morning is my writing. Whether it’s a blog post, a book review, a poem for MR N, an encouraging email to a friend or writing a story, writing ignites my soul and feeds my passions.

 

What makes you come alive? 

 

No matter what it is, do it! Your enthusiasm as well as your passion will shine through and you’ll be making the world a better place. The world needs passionate people who are excited about life.

Don’t Be Afraid to Fail! It’s the Only Way You Succeed! #motivation #ThursdayThoughts


Failure Lebron James

 

I am a failure.

 

I love to bake, and I tend to think I know what I am doing.  A few weeks, I was excited to make MR N’s favorite Christmas treat, Cinnamon Rolls.  I tried a new recipe geared towards breadmaker machines. It was quicker and seemed easier to make.

 

The first red flag was that they didn’t rise very much. I didn’t have time so I went with it. My mind started to swirl with self-doubt and all I kept hearing was “I am a failure”.

 

The next morning we had them for breakfast and at the first bite, I knew they were horrific. Flat, stale-tasting and hard as hockey pucks.  MR N tried to be upbeat but I knew they were bad. He told me it wasn’t my fault.  He gave me a big bear hug and I started to feel better.

 

Suddenly it hit me!  It wasn’t my fault.  It was the recipe’s fault. So the next day, I pulled out my tried and true cinnamon roll recipe and they turned out perfect! See?

 

cinnamon rolls 1

 

Have you ever had something similar happen to you?  You were doing something and then something bad happened?  You failed and beat yourself up?

 

I love this quote by LeBron James!  He is a mega basketball star with several world championships and multiple MVPs.

 

You have to fail to get better.

 

No matter who you are, we have all failed at some point.  Failure is a teacher.  It teaches us what not to do the next time.  The key to succeeding is to not do the same thing again.  You have to learn from failure.

 

Let’s all take this to heart today and every day.  Don’t feel defeated when you fail.  Instead, figure out what happened and make sure you don’t do that again.

No Matter the Intention, Small Acts of #Kindness Make a Gigantic Difference! #WednesdayWisdom


kindness fairy

 

Have you surprised someone with a small kindness that you didn’t think was a big deal but meant the world to someone else?

 

I love random acts of kindness. I’m a kind person by nature so I give away kindness as much as possible. Whether it’s a kind word, a benevolent act or a selfless attitude, it doesn’t really matter. All that matters is that it helps. I don’t do it for recognition or praise; I do it to help others.

 

But there are times when the tables are turned and I’m blessed with a small act of kindness. It totally surprised me and while it didn’t seem like a big deal to MR N, it meant the world to me.

 

As many of you know, MR N is a poet (read his love poems in our book, Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year) and while I’m used to getting poems from him, last night he surprised me with a special poem. It touched me deeply and made me smile. I mean, what woman doesn’t love her beloved spelling out his/her love on paper? 🙂

 

Today, let’s be kindness detectives and help each other out. If you see a situation where kindness is needed, act! It can be teeny or large, it doesn’t matter the size as long as its real and true.

I Challenge You to Go 24 Hours Without Complaining! #TuesdayThoughts #motivation


24 hours no complaining

 

Are you a complainer?

 

I sure used to be. I would cry and moan to anyone who’d listen to me about how life sucks and how the world is against me. Yes, little miss positive was once a complainer. But then something happened. Someone tried to take my dreams away and it forced me to stop complaining and do something about my life.

 

Complaining doesn’t help whatever is going on in your life. All it does is alienate you and make you feel worse. Why? When you complain, you’re focuses on the dark instead of the light.

 

So here’s my challenge to everyone. Go 24 hours without complaining. No nagging, no woe-is-me, no complaining. Go ahead and try it. What have you got to lose?

 

You’ll be amazed by how strong your perspective shifts from negative to positive and how people react to your new attitude.

Count Your Blessings Every Day! #inspiration #grateful #MondayBlogs #MondayMotivation


Count Your Blessings

 

Can’t sleep due to stress and life kicking you in the behind?

 

Count your blessings.

 

We watched White Christmas on Saturday night starring Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. It’s one of our favorite holiday movies and we watch it every year. One of the best songs has got to be Count Your Blessings, sung by Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. Here it is for your listening pleasure:

 

 

One of the easiest ways to release anxiety and stress is to count your blessings. Your life is filled with positive things and people. Look at where you were five or ten years ago and look at where you are now. Let your grateful thoughts flow through your veins and you’ll soon be fast asleep.

 

Go ahead and try it. I challenge you to try it for a week and see what happens.

This Year, Approach the Holidays With the Same Excitement As When You Were Young! #inspiration


Holidays excitement

 

Today is December 1 and there’s an overwhelming excitement coursing through my veins. I love this time of year. Not only is it my favorite season but I love watching all the Christmas shows/movies, listening to Christmas music and the feeling of goodwill permeating throughout the world. We’re kinder, gentler to our fellow men and women, helping each other when needed. 

 

There’s also a lot of stress. The stress of finding the perfect gift, decorating our home just right and getting everything done on time eats away at our happiness and joy. But we have the power to put a stop to it. Embrace your inner child and let the excitement and pure joy of the holidays take over. Giggle at funny videos. Watch an old cartoon and cast off your adulting personna for awhile. Drink your favorite seasonal drink. Bake something yummy. Listen to some fun holiday music. Relax.

 

Relax????

 

YES! Relax! Listen, stress will suck all your happiness away and leave your Scrooge-like personna in its place but only if you let it. You have the power the kick stressors to the curb. Enjoy yourself.

 

This  morning I did just that by watching Winnie the Pooh and Christmas Too with MR N. It got us both in a great mood and ready to take on the day with a smile.

 

What do you do to get (and keep) in the holiday mood? I’d love to know!

 

Happy December!

Without Confidence, We’re Stumbling Round Not Sure of Anything #motivation #ThursdayThoughts

Are you in need of some confidence? 

 

I woke up this morning feeling insecure and not sure of my abilities. MR N nudged me and said after confessing my thoughts, “You’re in need of some Elf Confidence.” Sure he quoted from one of our favorite Christmas movies but the idea hit home. I was in need of a booster shot of confidence.

 

I pulled out this graphic and it truly helped me. I’m a talented person with a lot going on and I need to stop beating myself up. Sure, I’m tired and my muscles ache. Sure, my reflection in the mirror reminds me of someone’s grandma but I’m getting so much done. It’s only 22 days until our Christmas vacation. I can get it all done.

 

Need a confidence booster? Read over the graphic above and pick one to incorporate into your life right now. It’ll make a huge difference, I promise. Together, we’ll gain confidence and ready to conquer whatever comes our way!

Looking for Ways to Be Healthy? Follow This Advice! #health #inspiration #WednesdayWisdom


being healthy

 

The holidays are coming up and many people will have to choose between rich food and being healthy.

 

I have a friend who’s on a diet. She wants to get into this gorgeous dress for Christmas. She asked me the other day, “Why aren’t you dieting?”

 

I shrugged. “I’m healthy every day of the year so there’s no need to diet.”

 

Do I eat only healthy things? Of course not. I eat chocolate and drink pop/soda every day. BUT… I walk 20+ miles a week, drink 64 ounces of water every day, don’t snack and be sure to have a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains.

 

I did a lot of binge eating and binge dieting when I was younger. I developed a lot of bad habits that I had to break. Dieting for a week or so and not exercising didn’t work for me. I beat myself up every time I gained weight and it was a roller coaster ride.

 

It wasn’t until I got married that I shifted my perspective. MR N helped me to see that being healthy is a way of life, not just for a few days a year. Giving up driving and walking everywhere was a revelation for me. The extra pounds slid off me and in five years, I lost 85 pounds. Impressive but it wasn’t my goal. Being healthy is my ultimate goal.

 

Are you looking for ways to become more healthy? 

 

Do as Dr. Steve Maraboli recommends. Incorporate these things into your life. Try it for 21 days. Research shows that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit.

 

Let’s make being healthy a habit.

Do Good and Spread Joy Today! #GivingTuesday #TuesdayMotivation #charity


Giving Tuesday 2017 gif

Today is Giving Tuesday and people in need are counting on your support. 

 

I know that I say this a lot but helping those less fortunate is something that is close to my heart.  There are people in our neighborhood/town/city who are starving and do not have enough food to eat.  Take a look in your pantry/kitchen and grab non-perishables items.  Drop them off at your local food bank or donate your coffee money to them.

 

A friend of mine asked me today, “Money is tight for our family during this time of the year.  How can I afford to give to the food bank?”

 

I responded by asking her, “Where are you going for lunch?”

 

She shrugged and said, “Probably some fast food place.  I didn’t have time to make my lunch.”

 

“At least you have that option.  There are many kids at the school down the street who can’t eat lunch because their family can’t afford it.”

 

Silence.

 

I get this response a lot.  I understand that money is tight.  But if I can scrimp and save a few dollars to make sure children in my neighborhood have food to eat, you can too. In fact, in our Christmas budget, we set aside 20% for the local food bank. If we’re going to have a fantastic Christmas, people in our neighborhood deserve it too.

 

Can you skip your coffee run this week and donate that money to your local food bank?  Can you look in your kitchen and find a few canned goods/rice/beans to give children and families in your neighborhood full bellies?

 

Giving is as simple as extending your hand and saying, “Here.”  It reminds me of the end of the movie Scrooged where Bill Murray talks about giving and keeping the Christmas Spirit all year through.  Watch it and you’ll be moved to give.

 

Which charity are you going to donate to today? Several charities have donors matching donations today so it’s the perfect day to make your dollars stretch further.

Without A Day Off to Relax, Our Problems Will Overrun Us! #Motivation #MondayBlogs #Relaxation


relaxation Maya

 

Are you feeling stressed out and in need of a mini-vacation away from your problems?

 

Take a day off.

 

Last Monday, I had so much on my plate that I was feeling rundown and exhausted. But then Thursday came and I was on a four-day vacation. It was so relaxing and exactly what I needed. I spent time with family but mostly with MR N. We did all the things we love to do: cooked, baked, imbibed in delicious wine and watched some fantastic movies/television shows.

 

I know with the holidays approaching, your schedule gets busy (mine too) with all you have to do but please, I beg you, take some time to relax. Even if it is only 30 minutes a day, do it! Withdraw from your problems and relax. Have a glass of wine, cup of coffee, your favorite treat and mute your device. Breathe in, breathe out. Let the calmness wrap around you like a warm winter parka. 

 

What do you do to unwind and relax? Share with us.

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

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.
