A Message

Life will take you down many different paths. Things will be thrown at you that make you question yourself and the world and people around you, but make a promise to yourself that you will always strive every day to make life exactly the way you want it to be. Go through the motions of life and know that you are exactly where you need to be at this time.

Gratitude Journal

I think I want to start a gratitude journal. So often we long so much for things that we don’t take the true time to appreciate what we already have. Some of the things that we have now were once things that we only prayed and dreamed of. Life definitely has its ups and downs and we are in a constant state of learning. If we can see right in front of us all of the positive things that we have going for ourselves, I feel it would help us greatly. We have so much for be thankful for, so fortunate, so blessed.

What are you grateful for today? Do you have a gratitude journal? Our very life is a gift and a blessing, it gives us a chance to learn and better ourselves every single day. Have a beautiful weekend!

Change

One thing that never ceases to amaze me is how fast time flies and how much life changes. I will think of a memory, or see a picture from years ago and wonder how in the world that much time has passed when it felt like yesterday. We are constantly changing, life is constantly changing. In a way change is comforting and in a way it is not. There is not much stability in life, we must learn to adapt to new surroundings, people, and ways of life because as the saying goes, the only constant in life is change.

Looking Forward

Good morning! What are you excited about this week? Having something to look forward to can really bring happiness to your life.

When you are going about your day, or your week, have something that you are looking forward to. It could be something as simple as going home after a long day, a hot drink, your favorite show, the drive home from work while listening to your favorite music, or even your favorite snack. Life is full of simple pleasures and by being able to look forward to them, you can really add a lot of happiness and gratitude in your life. Have a beautiful week!

A Little Reminder

Be in the present. We get so excited thinking and planning for the future, or we get so sad that we reminisce and dwell on the past, that most of us forget the most important thing and the key to happiness, which is to live every day to its fullest and take each day of life as it comes.

Yes, we should think of past memories and yes we should plan and be happy about the future, but most importantly, take in what is around you now because life changes all the time and at any time!
