My “go-to” Girls!

I have a lot of friends. I take pride in that and try to take care of my friends. I have one friend in particular that can make friends anywhere/anytime. Once she made some “elevator” friends on a mini trip we took when our kids were little!  She thinks I’m like that, too. 
But here’s the thing. There are friends and there are my go-to girls!  These are the friends I hold most dear. More precious to me than any tangible item in the world. We look after one another, put each other up and go after the jugular of anyone who tries to hurt the other. That’s true friendship. Some of these friends I don’t see often but the real and true friendship remains. We can pick up where we left off even if 7-10 Years has passed. This, my friends, is rare!  Hold these people dear! Also, don’t be afraid to cut loose a fly by night friend that would trash talk you any chance they get. That is not who you need on your team. Sometimes these friends are hard to recognize. Their expertise in “two-facidness” is such an art that not even the best of us can spot them. Maybe you’ll find out from a true friend or even an email they mistakenly send to you about you!  No matter how you find out...cut the cord!  Yes, it’s sad and painful to remove a person(or people) from your life but you’re better off away from the negativity. It doesn’t serve you(or anyone for that matter) well. 
I’m not a big believer in keeping your friends close and your enemies closer. I believe in knowing what others think about me is not my business and that I don’t want them in my business!
So make new friends, keep the old, but never let yourself be undersold!
Thank you to my go-to’s!  You know who you are!😘😘😘

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. Because...you 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!

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!
