Simple tips to improve your daily life

11 Jan
I found this on my friends facebook status and I had to share it. After you read this, please share it with your family and friends…I don’t know who the author is..but thank you to who ever wrote this.



1. Don’t compare your life to others’. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
2. Don’t have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment …
3. Don’t over do; keep your limits
4. Don’t take yourself so seriously; no one else does
5. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip
6. Dream more while you are awake
7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need..
8. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner of his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
10. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present
11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you
12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
13. Smile and laugh more
14. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.


15. Call your family often
16. Each day give something good to others
17. Forgive everyone for everything
18. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6
19. Try to make at least three people smile each day
20. What other people think of you is none of your business
21. Your job will not take care of you when you are sick. Your family and friends will. Stay in touch.


22. Put GOD first in anything and everything that you think, say and do.
23. GOD heals everything
24. Do the right things
25. However good or bad a situation is, it will change
26. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up
27. The best is yet to come
28. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful
29. When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it
30. If you know GOD you will always be happy. So, be happy. While you practice all of the above, share this knowledge with the people you love, people you go to school with, people you play with, people you work with and people you live with. Not only will it enrich YOUR life, but also that of those around you just live laugh and love.

Don’t let anyone hold you down. Life is too sweet for that.

We all have dreams and we all have goals.

Sometimes we don’t know where to start and what to do to go after the life we want.

And before you know it, we are wrapped up in someone else’s plan, someone else dream, and someone’s else’s goal.

It’s always good to help and support others. But you are your own person; you have your own dreams, your own goals and your own personality.

If you’re stuck in a relationship, personal or professional and it’s hindering you from taking flight, take some time to search deep within you and ask yourself, is this helping me to get closer to my goals or dream. Or am I being comfortable, and am using this platform because I’m afraid to step out and see my own shadow.

It’s a powerful question, but it’s one that will help you and one that can change your life.

I’ve been there myself, and I continue to ask myself if I’m moving forward or being comfortable and allowing someone else to carve my path for me.

Sometimes we are surrounded by people that try to take one up on us..they feel great by making us feel small and or inferior. Really this is done because they don’t feel good about themselves, so there way of feeling good and powerful is to come across better and bigger than us.

They never support you, but they are quick to ask for your support, saying, you know what I’m really better than you, and it will be crazy if I did anything for you.

It’s a New Year, and the best time to start going after your dreams and goals is now.

Support others, but don’t get lost constantly trying to please them, and lose sight of your dream and lose yourself in the process. It will be hard to step away, if it was easy, chances are you would have done it long time ago. But when you step away you will feel that weight lifted off your shoulder. You might feel scared and not sure what to do..but trust yourself and trust that you have what it takes to start a new venture and meet new people that will support you each step of the way.

Don’t let anyone hold you down. Life is too sweet for that.



Happy New Year..2012 here we come

1 Jan

Happy New Year

Wishing you all an AMAZING beginning to 2012. And not just beginning, have a great year.

Without a doubt I’m feeling good about 2012. One of the joys of entering a New Year is the thought of getting a fresh start, a clean canvass to call your own, so you can color it and create the picture you want. 

Create your canvass, and create the canvass that makes you happy.

Lets make 2012 great. What do you have planned? Write it down, and make it happen.

Quote on Fear

12 Dec

To overcome fear and break the cycle, you have to be willing to recognize that you will spend much of your life making mistakes.

The bad news is that if you’ve been inactive for a long time, getting started is hard to do. The good news is that as soon as you start moving, it gets easier.

What’s your word for 2012?

8 Dec

Last year I asked the question, “What’s the word that describes what your year will be like?”

I got a great response from everyone. Many of you shared your words, and it was pretty nice to know that so much thought went into choosing a word that means so much to you.

Now it’s that time again,we are rolling into 2012, and I would like to know what your word is. That one word that when you hear it, it reminds you to stay on track, it gives you everything you need to keep going.

I don’t know what mine is as yet, I’m thinking about it.

Share your word, put it up on your wall, write it down, and let it mean something real and powerful to you?

Love this picture:) Too cute.

Talented..with a bad attitude

4 Dec

It’s good to be talented, I mean that is amazing..but to be talented with a bad attitude and a chip on your shoulder is just not called for.

Sometimes we are where we are in life not because we are not worthy of better things and better opportunities. It is usually because of our attitude, how we treat people, how we allow people to treat us, and our out look on life.

Talents are meant to share with the world, thinking that the world owes you something, is not a good enough reason to be in a better place.

So when I found this quote on change, and attitude, I had to share.

“Change requires action. If you wait until you feel like it to try to change your attitude, you will never change. You have to act yourself into changing”

Quote from John C Maxwell

Quotes to start a new month

1 Dec

Quote # 1

We are either the masters or the victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Who we are today is the result of choices made yesterday. Tomorrow we will become what we choose today. To change means to choose to change.

Quote # 2

If you’re committed, a failure doesn’t mean that you’ll never succeed. It just means you will take longer. Commitment makes you capable of failing forward until you reach your goals.

Both quotes from John C Maxwell

Make fitness a lifestyle choice not a chore

21 Nov

Ask yourself

  • What do you like about working out, what do you dislike about working out?
  • Are you willing to work out early in the morning or later during the day?
  • Do you like to work out by yourself, with a friend or in a group setting?
  • Do you like to listen to music when you workout or do you like a peaceful and Zen type of atmosphere
  • What are your fitness goals?

These are important questions you need to ask yourself before you dive into a new workout plan.

Your workout does not have to be a life sentence to boredom, and yes your workout has to be appealing to your mind-body and soul for you to stick to it.

Make your workout part of your lifestyle and part of your personality. Choose a workout that fits who you are.

Ask yourself questions and search for the workout that fits you.

It’s that time to be a quote junkie, here are some quotes I’m sharing with you.

“It’s difficult to give general guidelines about how to learn from mistakes because every situation is different. But if you maintain a teachable attitude as you approach the process and try to learn anything you can about what you could do differently, you will improve yourself. When a person has the right mindset, every obstacle introduces him to himself. John C Maxwell

Check this one out..lol

P.S send me some quotes, of all kind, funny ones, serious ones, it doesn’t matter.

Love todays quote..

17 Nov

You stand at a unique crossroads. You are the only person in the history of humanity with your particular background, experience, and talents. You’re only going to get one chance-the one you have right now. Vow to make the most of it.

Strive to reach your potential. Expand your possibilities. Make every moment count.

John C Maxwell

I love this..
