Just a quick shout-out to my sister for publishing her second e-book. You can check it out on Amazon. Way to go, Nancy!!
2016 is rapidly approaching. Are you ready?
Most of us make resolutions at the beginning of a new year. It's the perfect time because it signifies a fresh start and unlimited possibilities. The key is to set goals that are realistic, achievable, and things you truly want to accomplish.
Let me give you an example. I've always wanted to have a lush garden in my backyard. I can picture myself out there, tooling around, with beautiful flowers and herbs at my feet. The image is fabulous but when I think about the hard work that would go into it, my desire quickly fades.
The point is, we all have wonderful images of how we'd like things to be. Perhaps yours is to have a super toned body or a perfectly designed home. That's great, but are you ready to put all of the time, money, and work into achieving that image? I have found that when our goals truly come from our soul, the answer is an emphatic yes. When they don't, they are doomed to failure.
With that in mind, I urge you to take a harder look at your resolutions and make sure they are soul-worthy!
Happy New Year!!!
I've been having a lot of dental issues lately. What's worse, the older I get it seems the more sensitive my mouth is to the procedures. OUCH! It has caused me to research better ways to care for my mouth.
Here's what I learned:
The holidays are upon us and can be a very stressful time of year. I was just in a beauty salon and every woman in there was complaining about what she had to do, what relatives got on her nerves, etc. It made me realize that we can easily lose sight of what's important.
Let's fix that! Go pour yourself a hot cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa. Curl up on the couch with a soft blanket, dim the lights, turn on some soothing music, and relax. Take some deep breaths. Now think about the holidays. What do you love about them? What is important to you? What would you be sad to lose?
Once you have your list then go for it. Implement what you love and forget about the rest. If decorations are your thing then put them up, but maybe leave the tricky ones (like outdoor lights) in the box. If food is high on your list then cook what you love, or buy ready-made items from the store. They may cost more but will save you time.
For most of us, it's the people that make a holiday special. Be sure you find ways to connect with the ones you love. This can include a quick phone call, sending an electronic card, meeting for a meal, or simply hanging out and playing board games. Whatever you do, make sure that fun and laughter are part of the equation.
The holidays don't have to be stressful. Focus on what's important to you and forget the rest.
