Ya Gotta Have Some…

990204522_003_0001Ya gotta  have some…enthusiasm. You have to have a zest for life and an appreciation of all the good things already in your life- if you want to enjoy it.

Sometimes it means being happy over little things- like a sunny day or a warm breeze. And many times it means making a conscious effort to shift the way we we from kind of “blah” to feeling optimistic about the day and all it brings.

Making an effort to be enthusiastic can make the difference between a gray day and a great day!

It’s Always Now

990204522_021It’s always now…it’s always the right time to move forward; to take the next step.

It’s not next week, or next month, or next year. When you think along those lines what you’re really saying is that is it NEVER going to be the right time.

A leap of faith is exactly that- taking that chance.

But isn’t it better to take that chance and to find out than to exit this life with that chance still tied up inside you never to see the light of day and never coming to fruition?

Maybe It’s Not So Silly…

990105679_002Maybe it’s not so silly after all…those plans you have

Look at all the people in history who ended up doing great things. Who knew there would be a telephone? Or electric lights? Or computers? When those ideas were first introduced people said something  like “Are you crazy? That’s not possible. Don’t quit your day job!”

Even though mostly everybody thought they were nuts they kept going. No matter what. No matter who laughed at them when they walked down the street. Nope, they kept going. Tenacity- they had it. Determination. All that good stuff. And because they did keep going we have these wonderful things in our lives.

Think about that the next time somebody criticizes you for something you want to do. If you care about it, if it is important to you then that is all that matters.

Is It Singing To You?

990205258_004Is it singing to you- the stuff you do all day long? Or are you just going through the motions each day- dragging yourself to work and then dragging yourself home again. No spark. No passion. No nothing. And then all you do is tell yourself “I can’t change it- it is what it is.”

But what if you could change it- what would you do then? How would life be different for you?

Now I know what you’re gonna say “I just can’t run off and live in Tahiti, Debbie.” And you know maybe you can’t. But if your boss is miserable and you hate your job then why can’t you look into working elsewhere? No, you don’t have to go into the office tomorrow and tell your boss that he/she can put it where the sun don’t shine but what about looking around on our off time? Get yourself a new resume and get it out there. Network- let everybody know you’re looking for a new position. Put it out there.

You may not get to Tahiti but you’ll feel a heck of a lot better working in a place where you actually enjoy going to each day.

Little changes can mean a lot.

Where Are You Spending Your Time?

35920022Where are you spending your time? Are you lingering in the past, playing out old hurts over and over again in your mind so that it feels like pouring salt in an open wound? All that gets you is pain. All that does is make you sad.

The past is gone. It is done. it is never coming back again so there’s no point in beating yourself up over things that many have happened many years ago. No one is perfect. We all have made mistakes. We’ve all had a bad time in one way or another- but we do not have to let those mistakes or bad times define who we are today.

The present is here- right now. Start from here- right now. Let the past stay in the past where it belongs. You, however, have no place there anymore.

Are You The One?

990105679_002Are you the one? Are you the one others find a source of joy? Are you the one who tries to always look on the bright side of things and encourage others to do the same? Are you the one who offers their smile to others?

You know, when you are that ray of sunshine not only do others seek you out because you make them feel good, but you also make yourself feel better as well. You smile and someone smiles back and says hello. It feels good. You offer a sympathetic ear and watch as you make that other person feel a little better just by listening- and it makes you feel good to do so.

Be the light in the room. Be helpful. Smile. it helps us all and lifts us up.

How Far Are You Reaching?



How far are you reaching for the things you want? How far are you willing to go?

You have to put yourself out there. Yes, it’s scary. Yes, it can be uncomfortable. But no one else is going to do it for you. Without you it’s not going to happen so let me ask you this- are you willing to give up on what you want then? Ar you willing to go through this life with your dreams unfulfilled?

Which then would be worse- trying and perhaps being out of your comfort zone  or never trying at all and staying where you are? It’s up to you.

Keep Them High

Keep them high- your standards. Keep them uniquely yours. Don’t sell yourself short. if someone tells you that you can’t do something or that what you want to do is ridiculous then walk away. Don’t let somebody else dictate how your life unfolds.

You have ideas for a reason. You have dreams fro a reason, and that is because you have the power to fulfill them. Remember that. Remember that and not what anyone else has to say.

Are You One?

Are you one of them? The complainers of the world-the one who just sit there and tell you what’s wrong- but don’t try to do anything to change it?

Think about it- how do you approach the challenges of this life? Do you actively seek solutions? Do you try to turn what seems to be a negative into a positive? Are you helpful?

If you are then good for you- you are on the right track. But if you are not, then why not join the group of people who actively look for solutions- instead of complaining? it will make life run so much more smoothly for you.

Have It Your Way

990105679_004You have to have it your way- your life that is. You have to meet it on your own terms.

When it’s time to depart this life, do you want to have lived it according to what somebody else told you or did you want to write your own story? What makes you happy? What sings to your heart?

It’s your life and just like the old Burger King commercial “Have It Your Way”
