It’s Not Too Late

Take a minute to really answer these questions.

If you are answering these from someone else’s perspective, you are doing it wrong! Only you get to decide who you are. It is not too late to rewrite your story. Focus on what you want out of life, and what you need to do to get there. Create the new YOU that you want to be. You have that power.

The only person’s opinion that matters is your own. Set goals for yourself, and go get them. You create and become what you envision. Dream big…’s not too late!

Greeting Others

This is our dog, Granger. He sits by the front door everyday around 3:20. Why?

That is when the kids start getting home from school. He doesn’t sit there all day until it’s time to greet the people he can’t wait to see. When they get home he wags his tail non-stop, showing them how excited he is to see them and have them home. The kids feel this love and are eager to pet him and give him a hug.

It made me think. How do we greet our loved ones? Do we make them feel loved and welcomed? Do we show them everyday how much they mean to us? I know I don’t.

We all would love to be greeted this way, right? If we want to be treated like this, we should try harder to act this way towards others.

Let’s be intentional with our greetings. Make more of an effort to show the people we care for that they are loved and appreciated. Life is short, make every moment count.

Life Is A Result of Your Choices

Happy Monday! Our life is made up of all the little things we do and think about. Sometimes, we get caught up in thinking that life is only what happens to us. When we get in that thought process, it’s easy to feel down and unhappy. We can look at changing our habits and the decisions we make, but more important is changing our thoughts! You have the choice on what you want to think and believe about your life. Choose to see the positive.

Make it a great week!

A Kind Word Or Two

You never know how a kind word or two can changes someone’s day for the better. Whether it is in person or by text, I challenge you to make sure you are lifting up the people in your lives. You also can have the opportunity to change a complete strangers life by using kind words or acts of kindness.

Here are two texts I recently received. I love and appreciate the people I have in my life. They sure know how to lift up my day! I am using these as a reminder on how I want to treat other people too!

And here is another one in response to something I posted on this blog.

You can’t change the way people treat you, but you sure can control how you treat others. That’s your power. Use it to make the world a better place, even if it’s just helps one person.
