7 Things to Give Up!

A gem I found was "7 Things to Give Up." Love This! A great way to start the New Year with positive thinking that will help you and in the long run others around you. Maybe take one at a time and work on it for a couple of weeks before moving to another.
Let's see how many we can keep throughout the year.

Thoughts For A New Year


by Ann Reintenpretastyler.comDecember 31 
2016 is about to dawn and with a new year comes the promise of new opportunities, fresh starts and better and exciting times ahead.
Whatever your dreams, to achieve them you’ll need supportive friends, a positive mindset and a sound plan to keep you on track. Big goals require courage, commitment and resilience. With every set-back you rise from, you’ll grow stronger and wiser – so never, ever give up. Those who reach their goals are rarely the brilliant or talented but those who have persevered long after others have given up.
This week’s post is a collection of wise words from the many people who have influenced my life 
~ Never be satisfied until you have found your purposeNever stop searching for why you were put on this earth and what your God-given talent is.
~ Find something that you are passionate about. Passion creates the enthusiasm that delivers boundless energy and will inspire others to believe in you. 
Build your future on integrityBe a person of your word. The unity of passion and integrity is a powerful force. 
Don’t do or say anything you would not want to read about in tomorrow’s news – you are a person of influence, whether it be to your friends, your children or your clients. If you lie, cheat or mislead you imply to others that it is acceptable behavior. 
Take a little step toward your goal/dream every day – even if you can only spare five minutes. 
Appreciate the journey – many successful people will tell you that once they arrived at their goal, they realized that the journey was the best part.
Associate with people whom you wish to become like – the old saying ‘lay down with dogs, rise up with fleas’ has its basis in fact.
Try to make wise decisions – the choices you make will affect your future just as they have created your present circumstances, take the time to think things through and seek wise council. 
Expect to make mistakes - They are life’s most valuable lessons. Failure only comes when you have not learned from a mistake and you repeat it. 
Expect things worth having not to come easily – Success is the reward for struggle and hard work.
Never forget your potential - even if others do.
~ No matter how much you look forward or dread something, it always passes; nothing is permanent so hang tight and appreciate every moment.  
Find someone who believes in you – negative people will only rob you of your potential.
~ Hugs your kids often and call your parents every week. Tell them you love them – they need to hear it more than you realize.
Evict your personal critic – when your inner voice starts to undermine your confidence, send it packing. 
Create a personal success file – and add to it daily, even if it is something small. Read it once a week to remind yourself of your progress. 
Do something nice for another person daily – without expectation of return. This can be as small as letting a car in, during peak hour or giving someone a genuine compliment. 
Spend time with your friends and family – they are your most valuable assets. Life is short and its length unpredictable, so get up now and go phone someone. 
Nurture yourself – eat well, exercise, get enough sleep, take regular time-out and spend time with those who love you. 
Value yourself – Don’t feel guilty if you occasionally spend money on yourself or buy something frivolous. Shrouds don’t have pockets and you’re definitely worth it. 
Occasionally do something silly - The best stress-reliever and depression-buster is laughter. 
Pray for guidance and expect an answer.

Pick The Day

I like Audrey Hepburn. I love all of the things she said over the years before her death. I think Audrey Hepburn was a person who learn to see life as good. We all need to see the good and not the bad in our day to day situations. What can we find that is good in a bad moment? How can we turn it around? What is it teaching us? How can we avoid it in the future? I hate that the media always seem to show us the bad that is going on in the world. Kinda leave us feeling negative most of the time. There are so many good things and good people. I bet you are one of the good people.

Find the Good in Your Day!!!



Halloween October 31

Soon Trick or Treaters will knock on your door for the entertainment of showing you how creative their costumes are and for you to reward them with candy treats. Yummy! I must admit that it brings a smile to my face to see the treaters standing proud in their costumes, especially the little ones. So precious!!!

Halloween is celebrated with family, friends and sometimes co-workers. Some communities hold large Halloween events. These events are mostly planned on October 31 or in the weekends before and after this date. Adults may celebrate by watching horror films, holding costume parties or creating haunted houses or graveyards. I watched a few yesterday and was amazed at how what I use to think was so scary was actually very funny. I watched the Chucky series and Leprechaun. Fun!

Halloween is not an official holiday. Government offices and businesses are open as usual and public transportation services run on a regular schedules. Make sure you keep a careful lookout for children who are unaccustomed to being out on the street after dark. If they are wearing dark costumes or masks, they may not be easy to see. They may be so excited and dart out unexpectedly from between vehicles or behind bushes. So be on the look out for the small creates of Halloween that lurk in the night!

How it began? Halloween originated as a pagan festival in parts of Northern Europe, particularly around what is now the United Kingdom. Many European cultural traditions hold that Halloween is a time when magic is most potent and spirits can make contact with the physical world. In Christian times, it became a celebration of the evening before All Saints' Day ... also celebrated in many areas of the U.S., including where there are large Roman Catholic populations in honor of all saints. Immigrants from Scotland and Ireland brought the holiday to the United States.

The Commercialization of Halloween started in the 1900s, when postcards and die-cut paper decorations were produced. Halloween costumes started to appear in stores in the 1930s and the custom of 'trick-or-treat' appeared in the 1950s. The types of products available in Halloween style increased with time. Now the holiday is a very profitable holiday for the manufacturers of costumes, yard decorations and of course candy.

There you have it. A little knowledge of Halloween. 
Have a Happy Halloween and don't forget to BE SAFE!!!!


Sunday's Wisdom

An abundance of wisdom in the text above. How many times have you said yes when you wanted to say no? I've done it many times and regretted it because it was something I really, really didn't want to do. However, I'm learning to say no more often to the things that are not right for me to do and guess what .... the world didn't fall apart and end, my true friends didn't desert me, and I didn't drop dead and my health is still good!
