A Smile Is From The Heart
Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 💗🤗
The last few days have been difficult for me… Trying my best not to fall into a depressed funk from missing my son badly and just lots of things on my mind.. 🤔😖
Yet today I was at the little country store where I live and there was the cutest little baby sitting in it’s stroller staring at me…
As soon as I made eye contact with him, he gave me the biggest smile and of course it made me smile big right back…😁😁😁
I asked his mom how old he was and she said he was almost 5 months… I complimented his beautiful smile and then the oddest thing happened… 🙄
As I went to walk away he started crying🤔I kept walking and his cries got louder…
So I had to walk back and as soon as he saw me he stopped and smiled huge…I smiled back and giggled and went to walk away and omg he started screaming again hahahaha 😂..
His mom and I laughed cause every time I tried to walk away he started screaming……
His Mom asked me if I wanted to hold him and so of course I said yes and OMG as soon as I put him in my arms he started laughing hard… Which of course made me and his mom laugh and she said he’s never ever done that…
Why he did I don’t know yet I walked them out to her car, put him in his car seat gave him a kiss on his forehead and said… Thank you little man.. You just made my day 💗🤗💗…
He smiled huge and this time didn’t scream when I walked away…🤔💗🤔.
Now I’m not sure why that happened and yet I do believe it was a sign from the universe letting me know my son is ok or maybe a sign from my son …
Yet more than anything I do know that the power of a smile cause truly change your mood… 😁🤗💗😁🤗💗
So my friends don’t forget to smile today at everyone you see… Cause a little smile can change the world and make it a beautiful place to be 🤗💗😁.
This morning I was talking with a friend about how often we allow our past to define who we are and how NOT ok that really is. 🤔😮
We all have gone through good times and bad. We all have done good things, made mistakes and have done things we may not be proud of, yet that doesn’t define who we are and it certainly doesn’t mean that we are bad people or that because we had a not so great past it is who we are 🤔😮
Different circumstances make us do different things and how we may have acted or reacted in the past doesn’t mean we would act or react the same way to the same situation today. 😮🤔
We all have a past and we all have made mistakes…
Good bad or indifferent remember that the past is the past…
We can’t change it…
All we can do is learn from it and keep going… One of my favorite sayings is… The first time is a mistake… if we do it again it’s a choice!!!
All the things you’ve gone through have made you who you are and the past is just that..
So don’t let your past define you or stop you from moving on… Keep on striving to better yourself because everything in the past is gone! 🤗
This morning while having my coffee my friend started taking about regrets and how she wished she wouldn’t have done this or that throughout her life and it made me think 🤔🤔🤔
So I asked her why she doesn’t do those things now and she couldn’t give me a reason why she couldn’t 🙄🤔🙄.
All our lives we are told we have to do this, we have to do that… And we are also taught that we have to earn the right to do something we love or we’re told as a child that something we want to do like being an writer, a dancer or an actress isn’t a feasible career… Hmmmmm?? 🤔🤔🤔🤔
There is no set time for you to do the things you love to do..
As they say..
“Dreams don’t have an expiration date!”
So follow your instincts, follow your heart, follow your passion it’s now time to start!.
Have a beautiful day world 🤗💗🤗💗🤗
No Matter What You Say or Do
“Sometimes it’s not the people that change… It’s their mask that falls off!” ~Unknown Author
I’m not sure why it always amazes me when people act out of sorts… I’m always me and I’ve been the same all my life! Yet when people do a total 360° I tend to get shocked, surprised or totally thrown for a loop.. 😵🤔🙄😱
This morning as I was doing my morning reading, I came across the above quote and it hit me hard because I’m actually going through that with a couple people that live where I do.. I do believe that people come and go into our lives for a reason..
Whether it be for a lesson or for life yet I don’t understand how people can be one way one minute and flip like a coin the next… 🤔🙄🤔
My biggest pet peeve is a two-faced person.. Maybe it’s because I’m so up front.. Maybe it’s because I’m too trusting and see the best in everyone.. Maybe it’s because I have a huge heart and am a giver… Maybe it’s because I’m an adult and don’t sugar coat shit.. I’m NOT Willy Wonka… 😠😡😠…
I use to have no problem confronting someone and was never afraid of confrontation yet throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s not worth my peace of mind or energy to engage in high school he said she said nah nah nah nah nah games..Yet it still at times gets to me 😩
Moral of this story: People will be people no matter what we say or do… Just be yourself and walk away don’t let others negativity get to you!!!!
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗🌻
Compassion is like kindness it doesn’t cost a dime… All it take is a little love and a few moments of your time 🤗💕🤗💕🤗
Take a moment throughout the day to 😃 or say hello.. To someone you may know or see that may be feeling low 🙃😀🙃😀.
A little kindness and compassion goes a very long way. So take time to smile or say hello and make someone else’s day 🤗😁
Have a beautiful day world 🤗🌻
Have Compassion For Yourself Too
This morning I was washing the outside the bus cause It’s absolutely beautiful outside and a neighbor stopped by… We started talking about positive self-talk and self-empathy and how it’s so easy to have empathy and compassion for another yet we are so very hard on ourselves 🤔🙄🤔.
We tend to “expect” perfection from ourselves yet we know what having expectations do…. 🤔🙄
They can set you up for failure and make you think you’re not good enough too…
So swap out the “I’m not good enough” with “I’ll always do my best!” Stay positive and believe in yourself and let faith do the rest 🤗❤
Have a beautiful day world 🌻🤗
Yesterday was the first day I didn’t post at all in 6 months and although I felt off at different times and moments throughout the day for not posting, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to do so😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢
My best friend, my soulmate friend, my rock and sister that I’ve known for 40 yrs mother passed away and I didn’t know how to process it with all that I’ve been going through myself 🤔🙄
So I decided to take a sabbatical, a day to just process my feelings, a day to allow myself to feel the loss of her mom, to cry and scream too..a day to just be me and allow it 🙄🤔
It’s truly amazing what we can endure no matter what life throws at us and as long as we believe in ourselves there is nothing that can’t get through..
Never ever stop believing in the strength you have within, never ever stop knowing that you CAN endure and get through ANYTHING that life throws at you… You only have to believe
