Believe in Yourself

Well, it seems like I am gravitating these days to my blog that I have been away from on a regular basis. It seems like I want to express myself these days. When I get thoughts into my head that take over what I am trying to do at that moment, I just say “What the *ell,” i am going to blog. Now, I do not know how long this is going to go on…so, please bear with me. 🙂 Some of my blogging friends are so good about blogging EVERY DAY! I remember when I first started, I would stay up most of the night blogging and posting!! Blogging has helped me with my mental health. When my mental health is stronger, my physical health follows on a much better path. So, those of you who stop by and do not have a blog….start one! Those of you who are so kind and generous with your time to visit my blog often….thank you. May you all find in your life what you need to make each day go by a bit easier. I always SMILE. No matter what, I reflect on all of my blessings and a smile magically appears.

Rest in Peace Mom

mom-2017

It is my belief that my mom is resting in peace now. She was lucky enough to live out her life the way she felt like. She overcame many struggles. She enjoyed many moments of happiness. She always did her best to make all of those around her happy. Since she is of Italian decent, she just loved to feed people! If you did not eat what she made, she would say, “What’s wrong with the food, eat!” LOL After a while, we all just surrendered and ate. LOL She worked until she was 81 years old as a food demo person at Costco Wholesale. She loved feeding all of the customers, especially the kids. LOL She took ill a few years ago. She managed to do her best. She passed quietly in her sleep at 85 years old. We should all be so lucky, huh?

We made an EVERIPEDIA page for my mom. You can do one for any of your loved ones that have passed. I was touched when the team did this.

Any prayers for my mom DELIA, would be appreciated.

Beauty of this world

  1. May you not got drawn into the ugly moments in life.
    May you make the decision to see all the beauty this world has to offer.
    Doing so does not make you less aware of that which is not just.
    It makes you feel more at peace to make the right decisions to show some positive changes.
    Open your eyes.

New Years Resolution in progress

Well, every new year we all seem to make resolutions that we start out strong with and then they manage to fade out. I made a different one this year that I believe will be simple to do. Every morning I walk into my closet to decide what to wear, I always grab the same stuff! I have years of clothes accumulated in my closet, but I ALWAYS manage to reach for those same pants, top, etc. that I have been wearing for days! I decided to push myself to change this! Every day NOW I will pick out something different! My hubby is going to help me with this. He said he would tell me if he notices I am going back to my old habit. ( He also knows if he says the wrong thing, I will explode! LOL)
So far this year, I have been right on track. I will make it a habit to post some of my photos more often. They SHOULD show me in different clothes!

Just wondering, what is your resolution for 2017?

I have been really busy writing away as a Master Editor for my friends at Everipedia.com. Have you created your page yet? What are you waiting for? Come on over! If you want a page, just ask! 🙂

December 2016

Thank you to all of you who stop by and visit my blog.I have had some challenges to face this December 2016.

My Mom has now suffered a stroke. Her recovery is still in question.Her vitals are all good and she is not in any pain. She can not talk anymore. She is not too responsive. I am lucky to have many friends and family members praying for her. Only time will tell. We will all be doing what we can do.

I wanted to write a poem, my style. I feel it really helps me emotionally. Thank you again for your visit. May you have a blessed holiday season full of many smiles.

Whatever happens to you in this life is not meant to harm you
Instead, we must absorb the lesson it is meant to teach.
When we feel we can no longer take what is happening to us and we just want to escape,
Instead we must meditate and listen to what it is meant to teach.
When we cloud our judgement with things of no relevance and inflict unnecessary harm to our well being,
Instead, we should be coming to terms with the lesson being taught us.

Believe.
Trust.

Listen.
Conquer

Realize and be thankful for all of your blessings.

Common Sense

Merriam-Webster

Full Definition of common sense

: sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts

I pride myself on the fact that I have common sense. These days, nothing around this world seems to make any sense. I mean, one minute things are quiet, the next there is a mass explosion! It seems like some people nowadays seem to feel they need to be heard, like back in the primative days. I guess some people get tired of talking to one another and reaching an agreement. I feel that politics nowadays adds fuel to the fire! The election process if bizarre. I mean it is what it is, but really? Chosing to be ignorant in life is a disease. Luckily, there is a cure for ignorance. It is called education. Be smart. Get smart. Use common sense.

I am ALIVE

Yeah, I know
Some days you figure “Why bother?”
Some days you figure, “It’s not too bad, it could be worse.”
Some days you wonder why things are the way they are.
What ever happened to living the sweet life?
You see all kinds of things going on and you wonder, “What the hell!”
Are they so stupid?
Don’t they realize what they are doing?
No matter what I do and what I say, they just DO NOT get it!
How do they live?
How do they survive?
Why should I even give a *hit?

Ok, are you done asking questions now?
Are you ready for the magic answers?
Do you honestly think that this blog I have will solve all of your problems?

Well, I hope it will direct in a positive way.
Get rid of all the negative, for a while anyways!
Look at the bottom line.
You Are Alive!

Make it happen.
Stay focused on what you are looking to do.
Stay positive.
Have faith!

May your days be full of many smiles.
May your hearts be blessed with much love.
May all of your dreams become a reality.
May you all enjoy the many blessings of this world.
Keep Smiling.
