It’s been a rough few weeks for my family. With my health issues and all the testing and medication changes, I’ve been struggling to keep myself together. I think it may also be affecting TheHubs, or at the very least, exacerbating the darkness already there. Because… He broke. It’s when he breaks down that I […]
These last couple of weeks have been a bit of a chore. Work has me stressing because people fail to do their job, and when they do it’s half-assed. This year has been THE WORST. I’ve never missed deadlines. EVER. But this year, I’ve missed half. Because of the government changing their process. Because people […]
Last time, I celebrated smiles. Honestly, I’m still smiling! This is such a great improvement for me and I am enjoying all the positives. I’m continuing this celebration and adding a little something that makes me incredibly happy. …I FINISHED THE NOVEL…I think. 🙂 At least it feels finished. But since this is my first […]
Today I’m celebrating smiles! Out of all the bad and sad things that have happened, I’m still trying to spread the positive with smiles. I’ve listened to some vent, cry, ponder, look for advice. I’ve given my heart, my ear, and my shoulder. I’ve done my best to help those in need and it makes […]
The small things in life are what gets us through day-to-day. When you are a caregiver and are going through your own chronic issues, smiles in any form are precious. I found this face in an old, rusting tractor-trailer out in our parking lot at work. Even old and broken, it still has a smile […]
We celebrated something this past weekend. It wasn’t small, by any means. If any of you know me and my family, you know just how hard it was to accomplish this task. We signed up a month or so ago for the Color Vibe 5k Run/Walk. We’ve been really looking forward to this outing. […]
Sorry I’ve been MIA these past two weeks. It’s been really hectic at work and by the time I get home, I’m exhausted. I’ve literally had to jump through flaming hoops to meet deadlines after they took my help away and kept piling the work on without giving me my help back on top of […]
I’m going to be posting another double-header. My Celebrate The Small things post is in regards to The Color Vibe 5k Run. I saw some of my runner friends on Facebook doing this over the past years. I honestly thought I would have to run. When they told me I could walk…I began researching for […]
Celebrate The Small Things. Celebrate The Small Things is a weekly celebration where we celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large the item in question. This will definitely aid in my quest to find the positives in every situation, no matter how small. If you are so inclined, need a helping hand, or […]
I just found this AMAZING blog hop that fits in with my mantra of “Find the positive, in every situation, no matter how small.” It’s called Celebrate The Small Things. Celebrate The Small Things is a weekly celebration where we celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large the item in question. I didn’t […]
Having a positive attitude is the road to Zen. Once we can eliminate the negative, we can achieve inner peace. Some days may be incredibly hard and if we haven’t managed to reach Zen, or even start on that road, tomorrow’s another opportunity to make things positive. Remember, each rough day you get through, you’re […]
While there are days when my body screams at me, telling my to stop, my mind is still young. If you can keep that going, you’re doing good! Age is only a number. It doesn’t matter how old you are. Be comfortable in your mind!
In order to live positively, you must cross out the negative. Eliminate it. Focus on the positives!
Listening to the negative voices that scream inside my head, it’s hard to quell them some days. I wrote about exactly this on over on my other blog, where I am starting to admit openly my feelings. If you have time, please stop by and read all about it.
I love everyone. I try to show how much I love and I hope everyone sees it. Sometimes my heart hurts because it is so filled with love and I can’t share enough. Sometimes it feels like it goes unnoticed, but I always love no matter what. It is one of the qualities I want […]
