Take Time To Refresh

Take Time To Simply Be

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗.

We are so programmed to go go go all week long that once the weekend is here we either keep go go going or we are too pooped to do anything 🤔…

So I want you all to do me a favor…😁

Take one day this weekend to unplug, take a walk, go for a hike, read a book or do absolutely nothing…

Promise yourself that you will take time out for yourself to just breathe and simply be…

We all need it, yet we rarely do it…

So do yourself a favor and…….

Take time to refresh this weekend….

Take time to hug a tree…….

Take time to hear the birds sing…….

Take time to simply BE!!! 🤗😊

Have a beautiful weekend my friends 💗😊🤗…

Going Around A Roundabout

Slow Down & Pace Things Out

Hello World & Happy Day My Friends

Why is it that when Mondays come around we hit the gate running only to be all worn out by the end of the week???🤔

This morning when I woke up my head was going so fast with all the things I want to get done this week that I felt like my head was driving around a roundabout 😵 Stuck in the inside lane when I needed to be on the outside lane 😲

So needless to say I had to step back, slow down and prioritize not only my today list, but my this week list too..😕

So instead of running out the gate, learn to pace things out… This way your head won’t feel like you’re going around a roundabout 🙃😏🙃

Have a great move a little slower Monday my friends 🤗💗🤗

Taking Breaks Are Healthy

They Do A Body and Mind Good


Hello World and Happy Day My Friends 🤗

Why is it that when we want to take a break from something we tend to feel guilty for doing so? 🤔

We are programmed to Go Go Go and we wonder why we either break down or wind up getting the F### It’s.. 🙄😱🙄

Our bodies and mind aren’t made to go non stop if they were we wouldn’t need sleep… they both need to take breaks … 

Breaks help us get our strength back and help to clear our mind so we don’t get all cluttered and burnt out 😁

So give yourself permission to take a break or two… It will help you get more focused and it’s actually good for you!!!😁.

Have a fantabulous day world 💗

Watch For Burnout Cues

Take Some Time For You


Hello World & Happy Day My Friends 🤗💗

Have you ever noticed that during the winter season and the holidays we tend to get more burnt out then other times of the year? 🤔🤔… 

We catch colds easier, we’re way more tired and stressed too.. is it because it’s cold out?? Is it because it’s Christmas and we’re rushing around like lunatics?? 

Or is it simply because we get so caught up in everything we want to get done before the end of the year that we forget to stop and take time out for ourselves? 🤔🤔🤔.

Almost everyone I know is either stressed because of Christmas, saying they don’t have enough time or money to get stuff done or they are sick as a dog with a cold or flu!! 

Hmmmmm 🤔🤔🤔 there really isn’t any difference between this time of year and any other time of year yet we make ourselves crazy and wind up getting burnt out, physically ill or both!! 😥😖😷..

We truly are in control of our physical and emotional well being and our body does give us cues when we need to chill out and slow down… 

The problem is.. 

We usually don’t listen until it’s too late… 

We wind up exhausted or physically ill and then we can’t do anything… Which again makes everything worse!!! 🙁🙄🤔..

No holiday, job or person is worth your getting burnt out or sick…

Listen to your body… 

Watch out for the cues… 

Slow down a little bit and remember to take care of YOU!! 😊..

Stop and Smell The Roses

A Little Every Day


Hello World 

This morning while I was walking my dog, I heard the prettiest bird singing and it made me stop for a moment and just listen to all the sounds around me..🙄🙄..

The birds singing, the wind lightly blowing through the leaves in the trees… The little things… 

And it made me think about all the little things we take for granted 🙄🤔..

Life is busy yes… 

Yet we tend to get so wrapped up in it, especially this time of year, that we forget to stop and smell the roses so to speak… 🤔

We forget to notice all the little things that are so beautiful.. 

Like the sound of children playing…

A warm and gentle smile we get from a passing stranger.. 

The sound of the wind blowing through the trees… 

The early morning birds singing… 

The beauty that surrounds us every day that can truly make us smile…🐝🌹🐦..

Today if only for a minute… 

Stop and smell the roses.. 

Maybe not literally, yet take that pause to just listen to the silence… Notice all the beauty that surrounds you.. Then take a big deep breath and smile… 🤗💗..

Believe me it will change how you handle the rest of your day!!! 

Have a fantabulous day my friends 🤗🌹

To Laugh At Oneself

Is Healthy


Hello World,

Since I threw my back out last week, I’ve had plenty of time to think and of course there’s been frustration, anger and disappointment because I’ve basically been flat on my back in bed for a week not able to do anything but rest (which I don’t do well) yet this morning when I woke up all I could do was laugh…. 😁😂😁😂😁..

I write a lot about taking care of ourselves both physically and mentally yet here I am laying in bed laughing cause I did just the opposite 🤔🙄😮 

Yes it’s much easier to preach than to practice what we preach yet I sat in bed for the past few days being angry at myself for getting myself hurt and frustrated cause I literally can’t do anything yet .. hmmmm??? 🙄🤔🙄

There really isn’t any rhyme or reason to why we are so much harder on ourselves then we are on others yet when we can stop, pause, take a look at the situation and instead of getting angry at ourselves or at the situation we can sit back and laugh… 

That’s when you know your in a good place…

Cause seriously once it’s done it’s done and all we can do is keep on moving forward and do whatever we need to do to get going again 😁😁😁

Don’t allow any setback or situation get you stuck in a yucky place… Stop, pause, breathe and laugh cause laughing truly does heal everything 😂🤗😂

Have a beautiful day world 🤗💗

Be Kind Whenever Possible

It’s Always Possible


Hello World, 

“If you have to choose between being kind and being right… Choose being kind and you’ll always be right!” ~ Dalai Lama

Growing up my mom always use to say “kill them with kindness” or “you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar!” And of course I had to learn that the hard way as most of us do… 

Yet the older I get the more I see just how true it actually is and not just towards another.. It’s true for my inner peace as well! 😁🤔🙄🤔.

No-one or nothing is worth getting all worked up about.. It disturbs your peace of mind and truly disrupts your whole day… 

So for today instead of reacting negatively back to a yucky situation.. Step back, process it, breathe, smile and kill the situation with kindness.. You’ll be amazed at how you’ll feel.. 

Cause negativity has no recourse to a positive response! 😒☺😒☺😒☺😒…

Have a beYOUtiful day world 🤗🌻🤗
