Making small, incremental changes can have a profound and lasting effect on your life.

What one thing can you be thankful for today? More than one? Bonus! This year has been a struggle for me to be thankful or grateful for much. Grief and pain can do that to a person. But I can always find at least one thing every day to make me smile.

“There is always something to be thankful for.”

Look deep down inside you for new thoughts and new strengths.

Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Glass half-full or glass half-empty? I, myself, have always tried to look at the bright side of things. I will admit, I have had my share of dark days in pain or grieving or worried about something, but all in all I choose to be optimistic.

“With a new day comes new strengths and new thoughts.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

You know those crazy made up holidays? Well August is Admit You’re Happy or Happiness Happens month, so try to focus on the good. Celebrate you! Be grateful for all of the positive things you have in your life.

We all face challenges and pain and loss. Rather than dwelling on the negative, look deep down inside you for new thoughts and new strengths. Dig deep down and find a ray of hope!

After all, you’ve survived 100% of your worst days up to now.

This too shall pass.

Cheers!

Monday rolls around each week and we are all thinking that our weekend just wasn’t quite long enough to rest, recuperate, or have some recreation. But we can choose to start the day off dreading the week ahead, or resolving to have a great day. Monday, after all, is the perfect day to correct mistakes from last week and plan how to be successful this week.

“Ok, it’s Monday, but who said Mondays have to suck? Be a rebel and have a great day anyway.”

~ Kimberly Jimenez

I choose to be a rebel today. I hope you do too!

Have a great day…week….until next time!

Cheers!

It takes determination and perseverance to reach your goals.

What does your “To Do” list look like? Is it miles long with nothing checked off? Or do you have the focus and dedication to get things done?Do you set goals for yourself, either at work or at home?

“Do something today your future self will thank you for!”

If we only knew then what we know now. Hindsight is 20/20. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift.

We can learn from our past mistakes, but we shouldn’t dwell on them. We are always moving forward. So let’s all do something today to make our future self proud and thankful.

This past week has seen some weather extremes across the country. Despite the Polar vortex that gripped parts of the country, Punxsutawney Phil came out of his hole, did not see his shadow, thereby predicting an early spring. I don’t know about you, but I don’t usually believe the Groundhog Day tradition for my weather reports. (And Phil IS usually wrong!)
