Today's a Good Day to Start Something New


Before I started this blog, about 12 years ago, I researched blogging
and how much work it was. I kept reading about how most people
abandon their blogs after six months. I decided I wasn't gonna be like
those people. That's why my blog is still here.

Today I want to motivate you to do something you really wanna do.
This could be something that's been on your mind awhile, or maybe
you just thought of it today. What ever it is, you have the power to start
it and accomplish it.

Sometimes you need to change the way you think, and when you do,
things begin to fall into place. If you want to change something, some-
times it's gonna happen slower than you want it to, but it will happen 
if you keep working on it.

When you feel a decline in motivation tell yourself to stay motivated,
because you deserve to be able to better yourself.

No matter where you are or what you're doing, today can be the day
you say to yourself..."I can improve my life if I really want to. I will
find the time. I will find the energy. I can do a little something every

Make a list of things you want to do. Find at least one item on the list
you want to start working on. Don't worry about how long it's gonna
take. Just do it!

10 Ways to Feel Better About Life

10 Ways to Feel Better About Life

1. Create a morning routine where you have time to eat, and relax
    before leaving the house.

2. Walk in the sunshine, or set by a window where you can feel the
    sun on your skin.

3. If you have a job you hate, research how to get your dream job.
    Then you can see what steps you need to take to start a career 
     you'll enjoy.

4. Stop hanging around people who make you feel bad about 

5. Find something fun and creative to do.

6. Don't let TV shows interfere with your sleep. Your sleep is 
    more important than any TV show.
7. Don't let social media interfere with your sleep. Create a sleep
    routine and stick to it, so you won't be drained in the morning.
    There's NOTHING on social media worth losing sleep over.

8. Listen to uplifting music.

9. Unfollow people on social media who have negative posts.

10. Be grateful for the things you have that bring you joy.

Are You Sending Out Positive Vibes?


When my son was a baby, strangers would say, "Oh she's so cute." or
"She's so pretty!" I would smile and say, "Thank you." I could've told
them it was a boy, but why do that? Always take a compliment with a 
smile. So imagine if I would've said, "It's a boy not a girl!" The posi-
tive vibe the stranger put out would've instantly turned into a negative

When people talk to you, what kind of vibes do you think you're send-
ing out? Do you have a positive attitude, or are you a dark cloud? 
Most of the time people will treat you according to how you approach
them...It's that simple.

I don't believe we should be pushovers, but being nice will take you
much farther than walking around with a negative attitude.

Do You Let People Use You?

Have you ever done something for someone, but it didn't feel right? 
Did you feel used? It's OK to help people, but sometimes helping 
turns into enabling. The more you enable someone the more they're 
gonna want from you. They will get as much out of you, and from you 
as long as you let them.

Are you confused if you're being used or not? When you help somebody
you should feel good about it, but if you're being used you will feel bad 
about it. If you start to feel bad about helping someone, that person has
probably crossed the line into the using category. It's time to stop being
an enabler for that user!

You can decide how to stop being used. You can either slowly stop 
helping them, or stop altogether. Either way, you have to stop letting
people drain you of your time and happiness.

You Deserve Time For Yourself


If you're always busy and it feels like you never have time for yourself,
you've got to solve this problem. When I don't set aside time for myself
I feel drained, unmotivated, and unhappy. 

Schedule time for yourself like you'd schedule a doctor's appointment.
I don't want you to feel guilty either. You deserve this. You need this.

How To Schedule Time For Yourself:

1. Write down everything you have to do for each day 
    of the week.

2. See what you can do less of, or eliminate completely.

3. You will realize that there are blocks of time you can
    schedule for yourself.
