Monday motivations

March is definitely roaring in like a lion with cold wintry temperatures and sunshine today!  But even in the cold, we can see the signs of Spring coming.  Flowers beginning to pop up all around the neighborhood and the days becoming longer (at least here in the NW).

This has me struggling to be indoors without any light from any windows this morning.  Work is challenging to concentrate on and I am itching to enjoy the sunshine.  To kick off this week, I am posting motivations; for you and for me.

May we each have a fabulous Monday!

Happy Wednesday

Today is another day to begin in contentment and joy.  It’s a beautiful sunshine filled morning.  I love starting my day focused on all the positive in life.   The other day I realized that while I liked my life before, after healing from all the abuse and chaos, I didn’t really love love it.  I enjoyed my children, family and friends. I laughed often and had fun with my kids.  But there was a piece missing.  Not a piece of me, I am whole and healthy all by myself.  But that piece that a partner brings.  That part of having a best friend you can count on every single day, the one who keeps you warm when you are cold, who helps you with all the daily tasks, makes you laugh and who answers the same question about the locks a million times.

When you wake up each day loving your life, it’s easy to stay positive and wear a smile.  I am a big believer that the way to change your life is all about mindset.  What you choose to focus on.  I once read a quote that talked about seeing life through a magnifying glass. That when you hold it up to the negative things, they will appear even larger and become a greater obstacle.  But when you hold it over and highlight the positive, you become more positive, things seem brighter and you feel like you can do anything.  That what you choose to magnify will become your life.  I committed a while ago to magnifying the good, the positive, the beautiful.

As you go about your day today, think about what you hold the magnifying glass over?  Do you hold it over the things you dislike?  Over the coworkers that are negative and annoying?  The issues or bad attitude your kids or partner bring home some days?  All the ways you think you can’t do something?  Or do you magnify the good?  The beautiful sunrise you see on the way to work?  The way your kids want to share their stories?  The wonderful laugh your partner has?

I am sending you all positive thoughts today. Hoping you focus on the good.  Hoping you can find just one wonderful thing in your day; your relationship, work or home that brings you joy.  Search for it, even if you are living or working in not so great conditions.  Magnify the One thing that may be good.  Watch it become larger as you focus in. When you search for beauty, you will most assuredly find it.

Have a great Wednesday.

Sunday reflections (7)

Good morning world!  It’s attempting to snow this early morning in the northwest.  It’s pretty to watch and I hope it sticks around long enough to get some play time.  A rare event here in the northwest.

As I am thinking of all I need to finish up today before the work week begins again, I am reflecting on this quote:

This is important to me because I am wanting to make significant progress on my goals this year.  I am a great talker, a great starter but somewhere in the middle I falter and find I often do not follow through enough to complete what I started.  This year I have set some big intentions that I am committed to tackling.  So I am reflecting this morning on how important the Actions are! Stating intent is great!  Necessary!  But it’s in the doing where we find the fruit and growth.  I do not want to be just a talker!  I want to be a doer!  I want to experience all the great things that accomplishing goals brings!

Today is about the actions!  Not the words.  I challenge you if this is an area you struggle with, be intentional today! Write down one or two things you can do today, the next few hours to move forward in your pursuit of your best life.  Join me as I tackle my own list.  Together we will start to see the changes and that actions do speak louder than words!

Have a fabulous Sunday wherever you are!  Live with intention to be the best you!

Friday’s word (30)

Today’s word is not only fun but brings a picture in my mind off my favorite places. The beach in Halewa, Hawaii. The Montana mountains. In a kayak watching the sunset. Just the thoughts of these places brings me peace and happiness.

I hope every one of you reading this has a place you think of when you read this word. Somewhere that brings you great contentment. That when you’re there all stresses melt away and you find joy. That is beautiful and you immediately smile upon just the thought of being there.

Picture your Xanadu today and have a fabulous Friday!
