Call me Bridget Jones!!

Just like Bridget Jones, I have ideas of bettering myself in the new year!
Thankfully, unlike Bridget, I’m free from the battle of the bulge and smoking!

Here goes...and let’s not be a part of the 80 % of New Year’s resolutions that fail!  Wish me well and I’ll do the same for you!

*Resolution number one: 

To write and blog daily.
My son, his fiancé and my precious grandgirl gave me a book of 52 Lists for Happiness. I will share one weekly( each Monday on kick-off quote day!).
If you enjoy journaling like I do, I suggest you purchase the book by Moorea Seal. 

I actually haven’t missed a day of blogging since starting on Thanksgiving.  I have however incorporated the lazy days of kick off quote and sharing an easy recipe to give my mind a break(but not really as who can stop the thoughts!)
Thus the reason you’re getting this post on January 3rd instead of January 1st. 
I’ve also had a ghost writer a couple of times who may soon become a cowriter on the blog.

**Resolution Number Two:

To live more honestly and freely. 

(No more cares about what others think! Plus, when you’re honest you never have to remember what you said!😉)

***Resolution Number Three:

To be Pescatarian 

“Only from the sea; if it lives on land it’s not for me.”

****Resolution Number Four:

No more swearing!
(Argh!  This will be hard as I love using swear words as expletives!)

Also there’s this quote...

“Under certain circumstances, profanity provides a relief denied even to prayer.”
-Mark Twain

I will think of this if I slip a bit!

What are your resolutions?  I’d love to know...

I Start my Day with Lemon Water

We all want our days to go well.  How do we achieve this?  Start your day on a positive note and set your good intentions for the day ahead. Breathe goodness into your day right away. may wake up and your back is sore from sleeping funny; or your head is focused on the negativity you feel dragging you down in one way or another.  Stop.  Listen to your body and quiet the demons in your head. You have the key to this day’s happiness. Find it. Keep it on an imaginary keychain you place near the space you wake.  For me it’s lemon water!  I start my day with lemon water!  This is how I know it’s going to be a good one!

You Only Have One Life...Choose Wisely!

“Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey.  They don’t need to, it’s not for them.” - Joubert Botha
Every person should take time to reflect on what they really want out of life.  Many want only what they think they are supposed to want. Many people spend their entire lives following the conventions of society and end up unhappy and wondering...”Is this all there is?” You must make the time to sit with yourself and really think what it is you want out of life.  Have you had big dreams, but thought that they were out of reach? What do you want to accomplish? How can you make a difference in others’ lives? 
Identifying exactly what will give your life meaning will take time and is subject to change as you grow wiser.  You have the power to change your life and really live!  Emerson said “Dare to live the life you have dreamed of for yourself.”
Step 1. Think.  Reflect. Step 2. Identify YOUR dreams. Step 3. Take action. Society is messed up!
“People may hate you for being d…

Writing Isn’t Just for Real Writers!

What is a “real” writer anyway? I am and I’m not. I like to write and I hate to write. I’ve always enjoyed writing for my own entertainment. Diary/ journal entries, stories; real or imaginary.  Writing for school assignments as a student and as a teacher never brought me joy.  When I’m writing for my own enjoyment there’s no judgement; fear removed.  Writing because I had to brought me stress.  My dad always encouraged me to write. Before he passed away in 2015 I finished my first children’s book that sits in my writing bag. Unpublished. Why?  Just like the assigned writing projects; fear and judgement.  I’m sorry dad for not writing the way you encouraged me to, but this daily blog is my way of honoring you.  So...I encourage all of you to write, too, if you enjoy it.  Whether you or I consider ourselves writers; if we enjoy it, we should do it!
