Do something today that makes you happy!

We are off to my sons ball hockey game! That makes me happy! Watching my boys play sports!!! Then I'm off to a spa party. I don't know what I'm in for, but its with a few girlfriends, so should be fun!

Then later today we're heading to the park for a picnic, why, because that makes me really really happy.

happy sunday!

Once a week....

Once a week I tune into to get my fill of the news. I really think I need to give it up period. Its so depressing. Yes I know that is news. Why do most journalist write like that? Doesn't anyone write "happy" news? Come on, I want to read things that are uplifting!!!

Sorry, my rant for tonight after going there and seeing some really depressing things.

The world is good at heart. Focusing on that good would be way better then reading the details of all the crap.



love this quote...

Like what you do, if you don't like it,
do something else. --Paul Harvey

So true. If your not enjoying what you do 75% of your day, then do something else. I hear so many people complain about their job and my answer is always the same. Find something else. Then I hear the list of excuses. I figure your not happy, figure out what makes you happy and go for it! We only live once, life is short. Enjoy every moment that you can of it!!!

I LOVE my job :-) and I'm off to work a few hours right now. Yep its Saturday, but that is okay. I truly LOVE what I do and feel blessed that I get paid to do something I love!

Have a wonderful Saturday!

What an amazing book! I just finished it. I really think I'm going to start to re read it tonight! I didn't even realize how much I complain/gossip/state negative thoughts out loud till I started moving my elastic back and forth! LOL

We're not talking the self doubts. I still think someone needs a "zapper" for that!!! I'm talking about stating in your voice a complaint, groan, moan, negative statement or gossip. WOWSERS. A friend called today and I actually sat there and said nothing because I realized we would just gossip or complain non stop. Awkward silence I tell you. So I told her about my experiment and gave her the website to check out. She actually hung up on me and right before she did she stated that I was no fun if I wouldn't gossip with her! LOLOLOLOL Oh that made me howl.

So far today I've moved it 6 times. Yeah SIX already!!! I know!

Keep me posted if your trying this!!!!
Happy Thursday!!!

Love it...

A Complaint Free World.

Shannon from BC left a comment here about this book. I went out to Chapters last night and bought it! I'm already half way through. It is about the idea I was stating the other day. Only no bzzzz. You wear a bracelet (they have purple ones) and you switch it to the other hand every time you complain, gossip or say a negative though. Same idea, no shock! Click on the the top there and it will link you to their site!

So the idea is to have 21 consecutative days without having to move that bracelet!!! Easy? No. I tried yesterday breifly and I switched it 16times! I thought I was a pretty positive person.

I'm still in the midst of reading the book. I'll be back tomorrow after I finish it, with a more detailed review. In the meantime, you don't need their bracelet to start. Use an elastic, use a cancer bracelet, use a coin and put it back and forth in each pocket!

Just start somewhere and try :)

Can you imagine if we had a Complaint Free World??? Could imagine how much happier would be??? I love this idea!

Happy Wednesday!

We do it to ourselves!!!

Ever notice how when things are running along smoothly that little voice pops up and says, something is going to go wrong!!!??? Seriously that is when I need to just bitch slap that voice and ignore it. Every once in a while I will doubt myself and give into that voice. Then of course all hell breaks loose. Things do start falling apart. I hate it. I need to get re-centered, re-focused, and in a positive mind frame. It happens more then I would like to admit!

I had a friend in tonight and she said something very VALID. Would it not be fabulous if people caught us saying something negative, about ourselves or situations that they just made a "buzz" or "BEEP" sound??? Wouldn't that be a fantastic way to see how much negativity flies out of our mouths and minds?? Yeah would be annoying, would also make us realize what we are doing. I thought about what she said (thanks Shannon your rock sister) and I thought maybe I will do that to people! No worries, but I am going to try to do it to myself. AS SOON AS that little negative voice enters... BZZZZZ ;-)

I have a challenge for you, try it. Buzz yourself when you here the negative voice. See how many times your doing it. Might make you stop and think a little harder on how we put ourselves down so much.

Let me know if you try it!

How do you bring balance....

I'm wondering how do you bring balance to your life? 

It is a struggle I seem to be having as of late.  Although tonight I feel good about balance, I often don't.  I feel pulled in about 20 directions.  

-gratitude (always makes me feel in check)
-fieldhockey (i'm playing again this summer after many years off)
-spending time with my children playing
-yoga and meditation
-being in my pool or at the beach

Those are some of my ways of feeling balanced.  How about you?

This weekend I spent time in my boys rooms. Their closets actually. Decluttering. I'm always grateful for hand me downs! Love them, but how many size 6 pants do we need? How many tshirts? I got rid of SIX bags between their closets. Now lots was from Ben's and he had out grown them, but still that is a lot. Their rooms look great now! Its like BREATHING easier. Have you noticed that???

Clutter = tension, feeling of upset
Clean/clear = clear mind, relaxation

I swear when I declutter the ommmmm feeling comes in my house. It just feels clearer.
Silly??? I don't know but I love the feeling and I'm going to keep it up!!!!

Next time you feel tense, stressed just go declutter a bit and see how you feel afterwards :)

Laugh! It really is good medicine and cures the soul.

Feeling good...

Today was hectic. I mean really hectic. A bank glitch, clients canceling, life just feeling like it was brutal. A monday morning I read about on facebook from people. Not my normal monday morning. BUT I'm happy to say I practice what I preach. I flipped that switch and stopped those negative vibes!

By the end of the day I had two new clients booked in and an opportunity to go to a health fair!

Life is good. My work life rocks!!!

:-) Monday's still rock!

There is something to be said about a smile to start your day. Or a smile to those you meet on the street. I walk a few nights a week with a girlfriend and one of her pet peeves is when people you pass while walking don't smile and/or say hello. She has a bright smile and a lovely "hello" to each every walker she meets. It takes some people by surprise!!! We live in a relatively small town, so one would think this isn't hard to do, but most people won't take the time to look up and make eye contact. If you want a smile, you need to send out a smile. If we all did that it would be a better place, a better day and possibly a better life.

So the next time your out for a walk, jog, bike ride. Take time and look up and smile and say "hello" to all those that pass you by. See how you feel. See how they react. Spread joy.

"If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out.
To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."

A number of years ago I wrote down this passage on a sticky note. I look at it often and it still blows me away with power. Its just part of the passage but it still makes me think. We have to have faith.....

Matthew 17:20

"I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed ... Nothing will be impossible for you."
