Smile Power!

The second quote in my new quote book made for me by my daughter Sivanna, is this:

“Let your smile change the world but don’t let the world change your smile.”

Perfect. 🙂

I don’t think there is much I need to say about this one, other than I love it and I’m smiling right now 🙂

The Gift of Inspiration

On Valentine’s Day my daughter gave me the most beautiful gift. She made both her Dad and I a handmade book full of inspirational quotes. We are to open one a day. She spent a lot of time making these books and we absolutely love them, of course.

This was the back of my book… and she used my proper name so this is an official real book. 🙂

I thought these quotes will be great to give me ideas for blog posts too. Here is today’s.  I am sure you can figure out that there is a little spelling error and the word should be stronger, not stoner :-). This makes it even more adorable to me. As long as we know what she meant, it’s perfect! I have learned that imperfection is perfect, and if we focus on perfection we will never be the artists of the world… something to ponder on. 😉

I love this quote because it is a great example of life. It’s not a matter of if we will fall or fail, we will! But it’s more important that we keep trying and that we get back up and that we become stronger from the falls and the fails.

Recently someone asked me to be a guest on their TV show sharing my personal story of struggle and hardship through to wellness because they knew I had a story.  I thought about it, listened to my gut, and declined.

I see all of my past experiences as stepping stones that have gotten me to where I am today. The hardships and challenges have made me who I am so I see them as GIFTS! I did not feel I could properly convey myself to share the hardship piece because I don’t feel that way.  I see everything as if it was perfect! It was the contrast I needed to show me what I do want. 🙂 I don’t want to talk about painful stuff. It does not serve me. I am too focused on where I am now and en-JOY-ing the next phase.  I hope this makes sense cause I feel I am having a hard time conveying it for some reason…. but that’s okay, no perfection here. 🙂

Anyhow, I am so looking forward to opening these quotes up everyday. What a delight and what a thoughtful gift… the BEST!

Choose Happy!

I just love the shirts that my granddaughter (left) and my daughter (right) have on in this picture!

“CHOOSE and Be Happy!” Wow! I think these shirts are awesome. One of my favorite resources that I both go to often and recommend to people often, is from Bonnie Ware’s Book about the top five regrets of the dying. You can see an article with reference to the top 5 regrets here: Article on Bonnie’s Wares Top Five Regrets of the Dying

With a new year coming, why not decide that 2019 is going to be the year you opt in for choosing happiness? We make choices in every second, every minute and every hour of our day. Choose Happiness I say! Life is so much easier and much more fun this way. Imagine waiting until your death bed or last breath to realize it was a CHOICE. Choose NOW! 🙂 And remember Happiness is like a muscle, the more you use it, the bigger it gets! And that’s a good thing. 🙂
