It’s not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, and make your Happiness a priority. 
It’s necessary ~ Mandy Hale

We are living in a fast pace world. Everything is now. The kids want things now. If you are married, the husband wants things, yesterday. With that being said, when is it your time? It seems as if that’s a mute discussion when we ask ourselves this question.

4 Reasons A Day Of Reflection Is Needed

Acknowledge, Reflection, Humble, Appreciation, Grateful, Life, Thankful

 

No matter how good or bad you think your life is, wake up each day and be thankful… Someone somewhere else is fighting to survive. ~ Anonymous
 
A day of reflection is a time when we count our blessings for everything that has happened in our lives. It’s a time we look and say thank you Jesus I made it through. Many times, we zoom through life without giving thanks like we should. We get caught up with our day to day activities and for no obvious reason saying thank you ends up on the back burner. When in fact, it should be the first thing we say when we wake up.

My Love/Hate Relationship With Springtime

Spring is the season for rebirth, renewal, and regrowth  ~ Anonymous

It’s that time of year again. Springtime has arrived and those same types of feelings have emerged all over again. It’s that feeling of hating to be inside when I love to be outside.

I was talking to someone the other day at work while we were waiting on the elevators. I could tell he was just returning from lunch. So, I asked him did he take a walk during lunch. He stated, he did and then said he had a love/hate relationship with springtime. It was in that instance, that I knew how he felt, and I could definitely relate to that relationship.

3 Reasons You Should Talk Less and Pray More


Prayer, Growth, Challenges, Life

 
“I will lift up my eyes unto the hill, from whence cometh my help.” Psalm 121:1
 
When we are going through things the first thing we do is pick up the phone to call someone to share our story, vent or complain. It’s been the norm for so long in our lives, so it’s an automatic reaction to do so. What else is there to do, right? I believe we can all relate to doing this. I know I’m guilty of the same thing. Yes, I pray but it is so easy and much quicker to just pick up the phone. I want someone to hear my thoughts and I want their opinion as well.
