Let your light shine

Live life as bright as you can.

Smile.

Be a ray of sunshine.

You’re only as bright as you allow yourself to be. Why not be the brightest star in the sky? Why not be the brightest ray of sun?

The Good Life

It’s all about the choices you make.

What you do or don’t do.

How you react.

Who you let in.

When you decide.

Why you do or don’t.

YOU have the ability to make yours a good life.

When you smile at a stranger & hold the door instead of brushing by. When you speak words of encouragement instead of bringing someone down. When you decide to look at the sunny side of all things even in the most trying of times.

You are in control.

Think about how you want to be remembered. Think about the lasting impression you’d like to leave on the world. Think about the impact you can make on a person’s life.

The journey we walk each & every day we’re in existence is defined by what we do & how we do it. The person we are & the kind of life we lead are one in the same. You ARE defined by how you treat people, how you react, what you say, think or feel. Why not take on each day in a positive way? What other way is there to really lead a good life?

By doing, saying, thinking, feeling you have the POWER to affect the lives of those around you. Why choose anything other than making a positive impact?

I have a good life. I live a good life. I LoVE my job, I’m blessed with an incredible family, and supported by the most amazing friends & special people a person could ask for. I wake up each morning & go to sleep each night with a most grateful heart.

Because of that I am able to wake up each morning with a smile on my face & spread LoVE the best way I know how. Offering a little ray of sunshine to all that cross my path (some of which I’ve not yet met).

We all deserve to LIVE a good life. Decide to make it that. Decide to LoVE wholly. Decide to LoVE completely. Decide to BE that positive person.

Take control of your life. Make decisions you can be proud of. Don’t waste a minute of this precious life. See the good in the world. Make a change. It’s all within your reach. It’s in your control. YOU have to recognize & appreciate. YOU have to make it yours.

Have a grateful heart. Keep it filled with LoVE always.

Live like this

I’m a big list person.

I have lists for just about every thing.

Shopping lists

Bucketlist

To-do lists

Must-do lists

Lists for work, home & crafty projects

Lists for things I want to do & things I have to do.

This list though is one we should all take a look at, consider & incorporate into our daily adventures.

This list is an awesome list.

Read it.

Do it.

Live by it. Not just today, but everyday

Give it a shot.

Give it a go.

Happy Friday Friends!

Be all that you can

It’s hard to believe it’s May 1st already. I’m sitting outside enjoying an early morning cup of coffee, listening to the birds chirping sweetly, thinking about the day ahead.

20130501-061137.jpg

Lots to do. Lots more that I HAVE to do. Even more still that I WANT to do.

All this thinking this early in the morning has the potential to become overwhelming. The thing is though, you can’t get caught up in all of that. It only becomes overwhelming if you let it. But why do that to yourself?

Yes, it’s important to have goals & meet deadlines & accomplish the “to-dos”, “have to-dos” & “want to-dos” BUT if you allow yourself to focus only on all that’s to be done are you leaving time in your day to just live?

Are you taking time to enjoy your day & all the beauty that lies ahead in the unexpected? Or are you so wrapped up in the deadlines that you find yourself saying where’d the day go?

Do me a favor. Just stop. For a minute stop & just be. Enjoy that cup of coffee

Take a minute to appreciate what you do have. Take a second to appreciate those around you. Just be.

Be all that you can be.

Make today amazing.
