This weekend has been full of numerous graduations, so this is my thought and reflection today:

Thank you for the quote Dr. Seuss. Congratulations graduates! Enjoy the ride!

I was reading an article the other day about the power of gratitude. How the simple act of being thankful on the daily can rewire nuerons in your brain. How cool is that?!

One simple thing has that much power as to change my brain function?! And it’s such a simple choice to say thank you. To focus on the things you’re grateful for in your partner, kids, parents, job, etc. It’s too easy not to do.

Reflecting on how I can be thankful for more things more often. Perhaps a challenge will be on it’s way soon.

Thinking about time this morning. How fast it goes at times and how it is the only commodity we cannot replenish. There is no substitute we can create for it. There is no replacement if we run out of natural material.

Time is so valuable. Today I can’t help but think how important it is to be deliberate with your time. Last year my word for the year was deliberate. I tried very hard to be committed to making specific choices. Choices about mental health. Physical health. Who I spent my time with and what I did with that time. Possibly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It brought me here.

Living your best life is a choice everyday. Some days are tougher than others. But each day we get to choose our attitude and hopefully how we spend our time. Make it count, it doesn’t come again.

New again?!

The end of the second week in a new role is leaving me exhausted.  Adjustments always take a moment and getting back to the type of shift I enjoy; a bit older than the last time is knocking me off my feet a bit.

But as I was scrolling around looking at quotes, I thought this was a good one for today.    Sometimes finding a great fit for your strengths and skills can take time.  I can say that I think I have found a great fit for me in this position.

If you are working to create your best life, keep looking at the ways in which you earn an income.  Make what you do; your job, be something you enjoy (at least most of the time).  Even if you have to learn something new, use that as a challenge for yourself.  Don’t be afraid of the new or unknown.  Sometimes taking a calculated risk truly does pay off.

I am someone who likes to be challenged.  To learn something new.  I am often easily distracted and enjoy change.  So once again, I am not living to work, but am enjoying the work I do.

And by the way; blogging is one of the things that makes me happy so I will continue to post.  To encourage you to live each day to the fullest.  To cheer you on in pursuing your goals, dreams and best life.  Today!  Everyday!

Relaxing. Reading. Breathing. This is my day.

Lost in the written word of others. Someday I’ll finish the stories I need to tell.

We each have a story to tell. I’m reflecting on mine today.

Somedays one just needs to breathe. May your Sunday be as beautiful.

It’s another day to celebrate. Mother’s Day! What a fabulous day it’s been to be celebrated by so many that I love and show me love.

Sending a thank you to all the moms that sacrifice to bring children up. May you be honored today by all whom you love.
