10 years with the Love of my Life

Today I celebrate 10 years of marriage to my best friend. We have come so far in these past ten years . We understand what it means to stick it out. It wasn’t always a walk in the park .We were both willing to do all it takes to have a successful marriage. That is exactly what we have. 

We understand how to open up and really share all of who we are with each other . I am so grateful to have my husband in my life . I am excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with him ! 

Chris ,

You are my everything . I wouldn’t even ponder the thought of what life would be like without you . You have taken care of me for the past 10 years . I only thought in my wildest dreams that I would be able to live the life we have together . With you I have come to realize that we can make our wildest dreams come true . I am looking forward to seeing what we can create together . I love you yesterday , today and tomorrow .

Out with the Old , In with the New

How many times do you say you are going to clean house in your life ? But when it comes down to it a lot gets sweep-ed under the rug. You decided every year you are going to stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right ones. You are going to stop complaining and start doing something about it. 

Out with the Old , In with the New

me and Mason

I pick the topic of friendships at this time . That is what I have been dealing with a lot lately. I have come to a crossroads in my life . Do I continue to complain about the friendships I have or do I change something about them. So I am choosing to do something about the friendships. I have decided to end them. It is time in my life to let go of people who have been in my life out of habit. The ones who have been just there because I am used to it that way. I am letting go of those who don’t challenge me to be a better human. I am  letting go  of those that are my friend because of need . The friendships that are draining to me.

With all of those friendships gone, I have created the space in my life for people who challenge me to be a better human. I am excited about it. I am surrounding myself with like minded people who are achieving goals and dreams in their life . I have made a goal for myself to only surround myself with people moving forward. I will never look back again.

Pleasing Others

How happy am I going to be if I live my life only pleasing others? Why is it that when it comes to family they think they are the exception to the rule? I just don’t get it. When are people going to WAKE UP and smell the Coffee! 

I was not born into this world to  please others.

Can't live the life of a carebear.

Can't live the life of a carebear.

 

 

To help them , but not to please them. I was having conversation with a family member today that feels life isn’t about me. It is about pleasing my families idea of how I should be a part of the family. Not what is good for me , but what is good for them. Even sadder is they are hurt that I help others. They are proud that I do it , but disappointed that it isn’t being done for the people ” they “want me to do it for.

Wow , I am grateful I am where I am in life. I was able to have this conversation with out loosing my footage of what I want in my life. I didn’t not feel bad. I didn’t feel guilty that I am doing what Is good for me. I am actually really proud of myself. People need to just get over themselves. We cannot control each other and should not push our thoughts and beliefs onto others. If you asking for help or seek advise that is one thing. That means you  yourself need to get all the information so you can make a decision .

Does Money Change a Person?

6a00d8341ca02753ef00e54f3e178b8833-800wiPeople say that money changes you. Does it? I don’t necessarily think so.I think the people that say that are poor. They will never have money because they can never see themselves having success in their lives. I think power changes people but not money. T. Harv Eker says, ” money only makes you more of what you already are. “. I tend to agree. As my bank account increases , I haven’t changed . I am still the same kind hearted generous person I have always been. Actually I am happier.  

 Does Money Change a Person?

 

  • They say money can’t but happiness.
  • It can’t buy love.
  • It can’t buy success.
  • It changes you .

 

Well It has brought me happiness. I can share in my wealth with love in my heart. I have the feeling of success in my life that came along with money. It has changed me… I am free from who I was.

So , Does it change people ? Yeah sure it does, Into exactly who you want to be. 

 It even changes the  people that don’t have money .They are angry at those that do. Why, I haven’t gotten a clue. They only reason people don’t have money is because they don’t take action in getting any. Playing lotto is not my idea of taking action. I mean actually taking steps to produce the money they so badly want. Successful people work hard .  They are truly grateful for all they have and expect greatness for themselves. They never look bad and repeat the bad memories . They never mentally break themselves down for mistakes they can’t change. They are in a good mental state of being . 

Maybe that’s it. If we keep a good mental state of being , the wealth will plenish us all.

Gratitude … Do you know what it means?

 

 

 

 

My biggest things in life that i am grateful for!

My biggest things in life that i am grateful for!

 

 

I thought I knew what it meant to have  gratitude. I was always grateful for all my blessings in life. But I realized that sometimes that isn’t enough. I need to be grateful for more than the material things I have. I need to be grateful for the simple things that we take for granted. Like nose hairs. Sounds silly but try living without them.

Gratitude … Do you know what it means?

 

Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

 

I now incorporate that into my everyday. All my thoughts involve what I am grateful for. Even if it might seem small to someone else . Everything is worth gratitude. I use gratitude in my daily visualizations. I see my gratitude in the gifts I receive from the universe. I am sure to return kindness. When I do that i hope it is passed along . The gift of giving is a kind of gratitude as well. You are so grateful for what you have you want to share that with others. I am so grateful for my happiness , I love sharing that with everybody. 

 

 

My happiness that I love to share !

My happiness that I love to share !

Take Action Like it or Not !

         Sometimes in life we have to do things we don’t always like. One big thing most people don’t enjoy is CHANGE. I really am not sure why we get comfortable in life. We don’t get  excited about change. One of the most important things in life is to take action. We need to take action in our lives in order to achieve our goals.

Take Action Like it or Not !!!

 

 

Why we need to take action:

 

  • In order to acquire something , you need to take action
  • In order to create life ,  you need to take action
  • In order to have happiness ,  you need to take action
  • In order to feel success , you need to take action
  • In order to have relationships that work , you need to take action
  • Basically anything in life needs you to take action
    Most people would rather just stay where they are in life then take action in their own life . Taking action might just be stepping out of the box for yourself. That is great . You have acknowledged that you are ready to step out of your comfort zone. This is when great things happen for yourself. You just can give up. You didn’t get in that comfort zone over night . Don’t expect for your habits to change over night. They can, But if they don’t remember you need to only set little goals for your self. If you achieve more than that. Then you need to celebrate it!

It is Important to Keep an Organized Home

It is important to keep your home organized for so many reasons.

 

 

clutter

clutter

 

 

For starters less stress. When you are looking for something and can’t find it ,it becomes a stressed out situation. If you create a place for everything, then everything has a place.

Growing up I had a very small room. It did not have a closet. I have to admit I was a bit messy. But if you think about it I had no where to put anything. When I finally moved out of my childhood apartment I was already a mother of a 4 month old. I had a whole entire apartment. Lots of closets and 2 bedrooms. I had a place for everything. It made my friends sick how clean and organized my apartment was. 

The truth , I wasn’t very happy with myself . The only way to keep myself happy was to be organized. I was a stay at home mother. I really had no reason not to keep a clean house. After my second child, If my apartment started to feel cluttered I would have to start getting rid of things. As my kids grew out of there things I would find a charity or a friend who might be able to use the stuff. Sometimes I would even post it on Craigslist. I would even check the items wanted section. Most of the stuff I would give away was like new.   Who knew that I would end up to be an inspiration to others.

As years passed my friends would ask me to come over and help them organize there homes. I would help them realize that to be more organized meant less stress. When you let go of the junk you are collecting and hold on to the things you truly treasure. It makes for a happy home.

I have been living with my husband for 10 years now. How lucky I am that we are on the same page. If you and whom you are living with aren’t . Have no fear. You start with your things first. no matter what don’t give in tho the mess. They will see how easy it is to find things when they’re in the appropriate place. You can even practice this with you kids. My kids rooms aren’t always in perfect shape. They do know where to look if they need something. It makes for clean up and easier task when everything has a place.

I hope you can find happiness in a clutter free home. I know it is a big part of the stress free lifestyle I live with my family.

Are You Lowering Your Standards to Your Level of Behavior?


If you think about it we all mature at different times in our lives. Are you lowering your standards to your level of behavior ? Instead of Raising the bar , do you just settle?

We tend to rationalize our behavior and actions. Instead of changing who we are it seems to be easier to make excuses for why we do what we do . Most of the time it is out of pure laziness. Sometimes it is out of lack of knowledge . Some people just don’t know any better. Do you know how to prioritize yourself?

Here is an example… You go to a expensive restaurant, You expect top rated service. You feel you deserve what you are paying for.  Well why is that any different that you have this amazing body that you are born with , Why would you give it the very best treatment in the world? People tend to put their own needs last.

A lot of people put there health last and their jobs first. They tell themselves that they will make the money and then after they make the money. Then they will take care of their health. What people don’t realize is that life is to short and some damage is irreversible. You need to stop rationalizing your health and well being. When you are gone from this earth , you can’t take the money with you!

Our bodies and minds need to be nurtured and taken very good care of. When you are born the first years of your life we are taught to nurture our bodies and mind. Why do we give up after that ? It is crazy to think we prioritize ourselves backwards. We should always put ourselves first on the list of being treating good. If we did this more often people would be happier with themselves.  Don’t you want to be happy? Stop lowering your standards!

Life is good. It is your life so step up and own it! Get what you came for !

Health is Wealth

Thank you Beyond Freedom !

Life is Good

Life is good

Funny how when you focus your energy on good things, good things start to happen around you.

In My World Life is Good.

I am always looking to grow into a better human. As a result my life just keeps getting better. I always focus on the positive of every given situation.

I make it a point to use the Law of Attraction in my everyday life. I attract what I focus on. So why waste valuable energy on anything but good thoughts? Thoughts are one of the most powerful forms of energy. If a bad thought slips into my head, I quickly think of a happy time in my life that would give me no choice but to smile. You can’t possibly feel bad when you are smiling!

I also make a choice to eat healthy and take care of my body as well. I don’t diet. I keep a diet. It doesn’t really change. I eat healthy all the time and I feel good all the time. I exercise my body as well as my mind. I try to work out at least 4 times a week. I stretch everyday. And most importantly I smile as often as possible. I have every reason to.

Life is good!
