Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my beautiful souls. I cannot believe how last year came and went and yet here we are in another decade! The years just seem to be flying by! I don’t want to sound like a broken record and write the usual best wishes that everyone writes. Wishing the usual love, happiness and joy to all. I’d rather write about doing things for yourself that genuinely make you happy. 

Letting you know the importance of following your dreams. Don’t put off till tomorrow what you know in your heart you want! 

Keep smiling! Leave the tension that’s been accumulated behind! Feel the joy, forget your worries. Most of the times, the things we worry about don’t even come to fruition. Make peace with anyone holding grudges. Take that leap of faith and leave behind anything that causes you pain. Most importantly, always be happy!

Enjoy the little things in your life, they are actually the biggest ones… and…don’t forget to smile!

Happy New Year 🌹

Break it Down

Procrastination will rob you of your sense of purpose and of fulfillment. It is a tiny virus that slowly gets into your whole being and selfishly eats away at your creative energy that otherwise had you not been attacked by the bug of putting off what you could do today, you would have accomplished what you intended of doing.

Stick to a plan. Make a list. Break down everything into tiny parts. Once you do what needs to be done, you won’t be overwhelmed but actually have a sense of pride of all that you’ve accomplished.

Perhaps waking up a little earlier when everyone is still fast asleep or waiting after everyone has gone to bed and the chores are all done… We only have 24 hours in the day but we all deserve to do things for ourselves. Things that bring us joy and happiness. 

Sometimes we have all the time for others and to do things for others that we forget about ourselves…  Breaking our tasks down will allow us a bigger time frame to get things done and before you know it, you just might have more time to do more of the things you love! ❤️

Love One Another Firsthand

We have to teach our children to be loving and caring of one another. To accept everyone regardless of the colour of their skin or ethnic backgrounds.

To look beyond any imperfections, and we all know that we are not perfect. We all make mistakes and make wrong choices. It’s not teaching your kids to defend themselves in an argument that counts. It’s teaching them not to judge one another and be more compassionate! 

It’s teaching our kids that not everyone will like us but that’s ok because just as long as we like ourselves that’s what matters. It’s picking up on the clues that something might be wrong with our child when they appear angry out of nowhere. It’s really our responsibility as parents to make sure that the tree that we created in a way of speaking, grows up tall and strong and knows how to be more accepting of everyone regardless of their issues and disabilities.

It doesn’t matter what type of family you come from, if it’s with a traditional mother or father, or two fathers or two mothers or just one playing the part of both or even a grandparent acting out as both, families still need to show love to their kids and teach them empathy.

What I see mainly, is a lot of judgmental children that are so quick to judge without knowing the whole story or trying to understand when all we need is more love..  more openness… more acceptance…. We teach our kids to look beyond the colour of the skin or disabilities…. that a child is a child no matter what they look like and deserves friends and someone to play with! We show our kids to love one another firsthand! ❤️

Always Shine Bright

Don’t be the reason you don’t succeed… Don’t listen to the voices inside of you or the others telling you that your not capable! 

We are all capable of great things. We are all worthy of success and happiness. There’s no need to prove anything to no one. Only to do it all for ourselves without anyone’s approval or consent.

We live in a shallow world filled with people waiting to dismiss or criticize anybody’s attempt for happiness or success. When in reality everyone’s entitled to their day in the sun!

It’s time to stop looking elsewhere for approval and look inside ourselves for the answers…  Always shine bright! ❤️

Good Morning my Friends 

May today be your day to Shine bright… Don’t get discouraged, just keep shining bright and keep your eyes on the Prize! Before you know it, your time has come! ❤️

Keep the Love in your Heart

You are enough… There is no one like you in this world! In days that your feeling down, remember to keep your head up high and think back on all the hardships you endured and today are just a memory!

We are all special in our unique ways…. we all have different ideas and perceptions that bring out the best of this world! Just keep on being yourself and doing the best you can! It’s with our differences that makes us a whole! Some people might not see the same as you do but that’s ok because as long as our differences doesn’t hurt anyone in the process we all can live together accepting one another! 

Keep the love in your heart! ❤️

Bring it back to Life

Everything starts from within… our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings all from within. We all strive to be better and live better… We all want to be happier yet we think happiness is gained after a large amount of money, or a big house, or a position of management in that corporate ladder but nothing guarantees us we will be happier… With everything comes a price…. 

We hold high expectations on others to make us happy… and yet it’s an inside job! Perhaps the reasons why so many people are not really happy is because they are not living in the present moment and keep comparing themselves to others… But we are not defined by what others do or don’t do, or think about us… 

Everyone has their own Journey and purpose…. Perhaps if we look deep into ourselves we will find the things that we love… hobbies that once were part of our existence and dreams that have long been buried away and bring them back to surface! It might be that you love to write and somehow have lost touch of your motivation and inspiration…. Or painting was always a passion of yours and somehow you forgot about your canvas! Whatever it may be….bring it back to life! Only then will you be truly happier! ❤️

It’s Never too Late

As the year is slowly coming to an end… most likely we didn’t see the time pass by! It’s like we started this year and now we are getting ready to prepare for the next one that’s about to come! Where has the time gone?

As I reflect back… this year has been full of surprises! Some good and some not so good! Some filled with laughter and many filled with tears! Although it’s coming to an end, have you accomplished all that you set out to do back in January? Did all your nights be spent doing the things needed to lead you into the right direction?

Perhaps you needed an extra push and motivation…. Whatever the case, you still have some days before things start to really take a toll. Life is busy! You are busy. We are busy! Occasionally we get distracted from time to time, by people, circumstances, electronics, tiredness that we leave our to-do list on the back burner thinking we’ll have more time, but will we really?

Everyday we are given another day to work on our goals… but somehow things get forgotten and so life passes! But it’s never too late! ❤️

Keep Learning

They say knowledge is power… that is particularly true… When you know a lot, the power of what you do with your knowledge lies in you…

Education doesn’t start only in school but at a young age at home… it’s not only what you learn in school but what you do afterwards. Learning doesn’t stop after you finish school but continues on. We are constantly learning until we die…

Some say that the greatest teachers is life! That you learn the real lessons out in the real world with your life experiences… You learn real life skills with your triumphs and defeats, with your ups and downs, and all the falls until you learn the lessons! You have to be willing to continuously learn if you want to be on top of things. This fast paced world is changing rapidly by the second… if we don’t work hard and learn new skills we are replaced in seconds… There is always someone out there that is willing and able to do your job for a fraction of the cost! Think of that! People are always replaceable at a job…. We have to keep learning…. Keep updating our skills and knowledge! 

When things fail, and at times they do, we can lose money, our home, our car, a relationship, sadly even family but what we learned and lived throughout our life journey can never be taken away! ❤️

We are Never Poor when we Give

With the holidays upon us, this is a great time to keep in mind all the people around you that need your assistance! Remember the reason for the Season…. the Birth of Christ and it is also the time to give to those in need! 

Donating your old clothes will help someone in need and keep them warmer at night! Remember we should always do what we can to help… things change every second… Sometimes bad things happen to good people… 

Especially in this time of the year, there is always someone missing their family… whether they are far away or have already gone to another dimension… people will always feel lonely and having someone there to talk to, might be what they need to raise their spirits!

Volunteer your time at a local shelter. To someone it might be the difference they need to keep their faith alive! We cannot forget that time and circumstances change at a blink of an eye and those that might be up today, tomorrow could be down!

There is always people in old age homes that long for visitors and never have them. Go to a nursing home and spend your time . They are fountains of knowledge where you can learn just about any subject with first hand experience. 

Bake some cookies or a meal for someone. We are never poor by giving for our soul yearns for moments that take away our loneliness. Every time you give, your giving yourself the opportunity to grow into a person that wants to be the change that this world needs!

Happy giving! ❤️
