to do list

Be determined to have a good day and you will.

Take a few extra minutes in you day and simply take notice when something good happens,big or small. It can be anything from a nice warm shower to no traffic on the way to work, a complement or something big like a promotion. Make a mental note , or jot it all down,come up with as many things as you can.Then at the end of the day go through you list. It’s amazing how many nice little things we let go by unnoticed each day. Why not make an effort every day to look for them.Give it a try and have a wonderful day.

It’s Been a Hell of a Year October 27, 2014

So today is my birthday, and it’s been a hell of a year, a hell of a good year. Now everything has not been perfect, I had my share problems but I had more to be grateful for, and that’s what I am staying focused on. In the beginning of the year I made a list of goals, things I wanted to accomplish, places I wanted to go and habits I wanted to change or develop. While I have not accomplished all of them I did manage to put a big dent in that list and I feel wonderful about what I have been able to accomplish. I think what helped me the most was a simple change in perspective.

I look at all the things I wanted with a different attitude, instead of being upset that I didn’t have them or that I didn’t have what I needed to get them. Things like enough time, energy, space, and money of course. The attitude I took this time around was to look at all of things with excitement, I thought about how much fun they would be or how good I would feel getting them, and every time I got what I wanted I made sure I kept up the positive attitude. I just looked for a way to make things work and was happy when it did. If and when worry would creep in I simply refused to focus on it. It’s been working for me so far so the plan is carry on in the same manner to accomplish the rest of my goals and then start a new list.

About five years ago I had to make so pretty big lifestyle changes and since then I have been working hard to get my life and the life of my family working better for us. So many of these things seem to be coming together now this year and I am so happy to see all of the hard work and sacrifice that my husband and I made now paying off. It just feels good and honestly I feel like I can make my life what I want it to be. My outlook and attitude changed before my circumstances did and that realization has had quite an impact on my life. This year is definitely one worth celebrating and I am looking forward to many more to come.
