Notice Them…

Notice them…your feelings. They are your true barometers; they are your measuring sticks and your compass about the direction you’re going in.

If something doesn’t feel right; if it feels “off” somehow then don’t ignore it. Stop and really think about what you’re doing. If it still makes you uncomfortable then maybe it’s time you changed your path…or at least made a slight adjustment

Give your inner self credit for knowing what’s best for you. Trust it. And go with your gut.

It Sure Helps…


It sure helps…being thankful. It just makes you feel better, more calm, more peaceful, and just makes you glad to be alive.

Think about the times that you have been thankful for something. Think about the way you felt. Think about the actions you then took as a result of feeling good. You took some great steps, right? You probably got a lot more done than if you sat around feeling sorry for yourself, right?

Let’s all shift our focus towards being thankful today and then we’ll make it a great day!

Take A Good Look…


Take a good look…at yourself. Look at all those wonderful qualities you have. There is no one in the world quite like you.

So many times, we put ourselves down. We play up the things that we might not be so good at and downplay all those things that we really do well. Somehow those things just aren’t that important; anybody can do those anyway.

But that is not true. You may have a way with words, while another does not. You might be good t math, while another (and I’m one of them) needs a calculator for everything. You might have an artistic flare while another can draw only stick figures.

Focus on what you do well and celebrate it!

Open It…



Open it… your heart. Let people into your life. Take that chance and reach out. Make a connection.

If you are alone, why not join a group where you will have a common interest? Meet-up is full of different places. if you like photography. for example, why not join that kind of group? Or a book club? Say hello to your neighbors instead of shuffling by them. Reach out.

Sometimes it can be a little difficult when you’re a little introverted to make a connection with another, but it doesn’t have to be all that- it doesn’t have to be some kind of torrid love affair or some lifetime commitment. Just a little bit of reaching outside of yourself so that you are not so alone. You most likely will find that this will be of great benefit to you.

But you have to take that first step; you must grab onto that first rung of the ladder.

Offer One…

Offer one…a smile. It only takes a second, and that smile could make all the difference for the person receiving it. It shows you care. It shows they matter to someone. And besides, smiling and laughing make us feel good too!

So as you walk by people today, whether you know them or not, how about giving them a smile? Make everyone’s day a little brighter.

Ya Gotta Have Some…

Ya 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!

You Have Value…



You have value. You have areas in your life that you do well in; we all do.

But how often do we play down what we do well and instead praise others for their abilities? Not that there is anything wrong with praising someone for a job well done- it’s great to recognize that and give credit where credit is due.

But how about you? How often does somebody compliment you and you return the compliment with something like “Yeah, but did you see what John did? He’s so much more talented than me, I wish I could do that.”

And John can hear you and thinks to himself “Wow, Marie is so gifted and she just doesn’t see it. She has so much to be proud of.”

Don’t downplay your gifts but instead, celebrate them and be glad.
