Letter Board No. 16

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.

Letter Board No. 4

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!)

Letter Board No. 2

As someone with chronic pain and fibromyalgia, I often feel like I have more than my fair share of hardships. But on the path of life, I cannot let that get me down. I have to believe I am only given that which I can handle.

“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.”

~ C. S. Lewis

Boy, someone must think I can handle A LOT! I missed posting this for #MotivationMonday because of a flare up of my shoulder pain and then somehow after my morning yoga, my back decided to give out. 😦  And while I wanted to post the above quote on my letter board this week, I fell short on Ps and Rs. So this is Plan B… 😃 Always have a Plan B!

There are days when we might feel ordinary. But I feel like everyone has a story to tell and gifts to share. Everyone is remarkable and extraordinary in their own right and will find more of the same along their journey. So remember…. “We meet no ordinary people in our lives.”

I hope you carry that thought with you throughout your day and your encounters. Have an extraordinary day!

Cheers!

Letter Board No. 1

I love posting motivational and inspirational quotes. So while I was shopping over the weekend I decided to pick up this cute letter board from Home Goods, so I could showcase some of those sayings at work. I manage a small team and am always looking for positive messages to spread.

So here’s my first installment…

Go the extra mile – it’s never crowded.

Cheers!

Transformation

People with chronic illnesses or pain often feel like they have transformed into someone else, perhaps even someone they no longer recognize. It takes strength and courage to deal with long-term pain and illness, while staying true to your authentic self.

Here’s to being able to bloom where you are planted, face challenges that come your way, transform into a stronger being, and find your authenticity and strength.💛

Cheers!

Change Your Mindset – Ease Your Pain

You have the power to decide whether to let the pain control you, or you control the pain and its effect on you.

If you could change one thing in your life to ease your pain, what would it be? Diet? Exercise? A new doctor or the latest medication, perhaps? I believe the single biggest factor in helping ourselves is our attitude. Diet, exercise, and life style choices are great too, but you have to have the proper mindset for those things to work.Change Your Mindset Continue reading “Change Your Mindset – Ease Your Pain”
