Think Happy, Be Happy

20131228-021205.jpg

I don’t mind that people get it twisted…I’ve learned that negativity is a drug for many however, me…I fired my pusher years ago. “If it does not serve you, remove it from your life.” Happiness is not a cheap commodity, but it is attainable with the right perspective.

Me, let’s just say…I am an independent and authorized distributor of happiness.

Find the good, be that good

Find the good, be that good

20131227-202549.jpg

I used to wonder (silently of course)…why I received so many blessings in this life’s journey. Until, one day, I chanced to meet an elderly silver haired woman, who upon meeting me smiled, took my hand turned it over and said “whatever you did in your past life has given you an abundance of Karma, but you already know this” she patted my hand before allowing mine to slide from her gentle grasp and before I could scratch three words together she was gone. No explanation, no summary, just a smile, a declaration, and “poof.”

I can find good in most every situation and many people. I implore you to choose to find the good in your daily dealings, of course you may be required to look hard. The negative energy is laying in the wide open for everyone…I challenge you to be different (step away from the crowd), be better (rise above the fray), be the good (believe it only takes one voice, choose to let it be yours).

Where is your Hoola Hoop?

20120725-100644.jpg

Here’s a thought, I’m a control freak!

Recently an associate shared a story with me as I was having a stressful day.

A young woman having crap poured into her life from every possible direction, felt as if she couldn’t take another single breath. Being a member of AA she reached out to the only person to whom she could entrust to understand, her sponsor.

The sponsor listened intently as the young woman rattled off everything that was holding back, pinning her down, going wrong and stripping her of her confidence, dignity and possibly her sobriety. When she finished, the sponsor told her to immediately go to Wal-Mart and call her upon her arrival. As instructed the young woman upon her arrival frantically dialed the sponsors number. In a calm and supportive voice the sponsor instructed the young woman to go to the toy department where she would locate and purchase one single item…a hula hoop. She instructed the young woman to call her back once the transaction was completed before hanging up the telephone.

Anxious and somewhat baffled she went in search of the toy department, purchased a hula hoop redialed the sponsors number. The sponsor answered on the third ring projecting a smile and reassurance in her voice. She then instructed the woman to take her purchase and go out to the parking lot. The young woman frowned, but did as instructed without question.

Once outside, the sponsor told her to take the hula hoop in both hands and slowly raise it above her head. After a few seconds the sponsor instructed her take two deep cleansing breaths and to drop the hula hoop over her body allowing it to fall to the ground.

The young woman again did as instructed and stood in silence as the hula hoop begin to free-fall from above her head quickly landing on the ground at her feet.

The sponsor said nothing, the young woman said nothing, the curious passerby’s said nothing as they stared with curiosity at the odd young woman. After what seemed like an eternity the sponsors voice crackled through the phone.

Inside this hula hoop is everything within your control and all things outside the hula hoop…well ehh, not so much lay all things beyond your control.

The young woman paused and pondered the sponsors words and then she silently took one step outside of the hula hoop, bent over and lifted it off the ground. She held it tightly in the grasp of her two hands and slowly raised it over head pausing for a brief second before allowing it to rapidly fall to the ground encasing her body in the process.

20120725-110607.jpg …and then she laughed. Here’s another thought…no one controls everything.

Should you ever have a similar moment, feel free to go purchase a hula hoop, raise it high above your head and allow it fall to the ground identifying your boundary of control. Because we all must acknowledge what “WE” are able to control.

Her secret is, she acknowledges she can only control what is within her        hula hoop.

“Celebrate Good Times”

20120312-093359.jpg

I find it interesting how individuals put so much emphasis on their birthday. They celebrate a week or sometimes an entire month and the really over zealous people celebrate for an entire year.

I have yet to see anyone (I know directly or indirectly) put such emphasis on a wedding anniversary and I was perplexed as to why not…until now!

Welcome to
“MY MARCH MADNESS”
Est. 3.13.2012

20120312-093651.jpg
We’ve celebrated the joining of our union everyday this month. We didn’t break the bank, by giving huge excessive gifts, but time and reverence.
We elected to spotlight acknowledgement, forethought, appreciation, nurture, affection and consideration as our daily focus on one another.

20120312-094027.jpg
My love for my spouse is one of the things I value and treasure with great sincerity in our union. So, we raise our glasses, sharing our laughter, our silliness and beaming with radiant smiles everyday knowing that dreams really do come do come true.

Celebrate your love not just once a year, but everyday and especially during the month when two became one.

“a successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”

It makes me feel…

It makes me feel…

Special” when you hold my hand in bed. When you kiss me goodnight before we turn down the light.

It makes me feel…

Excited” when you embrace me in your arms, when you spoon with me as you drift off to sleep.

It makes me feel…

Loved,” when you come home from work and the first thing you do is kiss me and ask how was my day. When you reach for my hand while we browse around town, laughing like children

It makes me feel…

Valued,” just knowing that you care that you’ll always be here with me no matter my fault.

It makes me feel…

Like” a schoolgirl being loved by you and I hope…I make you feel this love everyday.

It’s just my beginning…

Hello world, welcome to my new WordPress blog.

Certainly you didn’t expect the first posting to be fabulous…did you? Well, think of this first blog as the informational link between you, me and the blog. LOL

You may wonder how I came to choose the title of my blog, well I wanted something that wouldn’t shoebox me in, but that would allow and create a forum for free flow of thoughts and information from every direction.

So, I hope you will return again, soon and often to smile and laugh with me.  

R&W
