Is It Time For Some "Me Time?"

Sometimes you just need to disconnect and enjoy your own company. ~ Anonymous

Make yourself a priority once in a while. It’s not selfish. It’s Necessary.

Is it time for some ME time?

I would selfishly say “YES INDEED!”

Enjoying the Suite Life

Life isn’t about having things to enjoy life. It’s about enjoying life with the things you have. ~ Anonymous

On Saturday, I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a football game in a box office suite. While others enjoy the suite life for sport reasons, my love for the suite life this time was for relaxation and to catch up on some much needed reading of my magazines.

Adapting to Life's Unexpected Occurrences

As much as you want
to plan your life, it has
a way of surprising you
with unexpected
things that will make you
happier than you
originally planned.

The other day, to relieve myself of some tension, I decided to take the grandbabies outside in the backyard after work and let them run free. Well, the oldest one, which is 19 months old. It also gave me some time to woosah and get my second wind for the rest of the evening.

Thankful Thursday

Thanks, Thankful, Thankfulness Thursday, Grateful, Gratitude

There is always, always, always something to be thankful for… ~ Anonymous

Remembering To Be Thankful In Life...

In the midst of going through life’s ups and downs we sometimes forget to be thankful for the things that are right in front of us.

We are so bogged down and focused on all that is wrong that we forget all that we have been and are blessed with.

Thankful Thursday amidst all other days can serve as a reminder to be thankful for all things regardless of what challenges we are faced with at the moment.  One thing, we can always count on is that trouble doesn’t last always.

A great way to remember to be thankful amidst our trials and tribulations is to remember the countless times God has brought you through previous challenges. This will always serve as a reminder to be thankful that you are still standing from previous challenges, therefore, you will still be standing in the mist of present challenges and thereafter.

When I begin to think of complaining about the challenges that I am faced with, I tend to give myself a reality check. I think back on all of the times I made it through. I didn’t get through it by myself. That is when I begin to give thanks profusely.

Giving myself a reality check not only helps me to remember to be thankful for the past, present and the future, it also helps me to remember that while I think my storm is big, there is always someone’s storm that is much bigger. I’ve seen it all too often. And, this is what brings me back to be thankful that through it all I am still standing.

If you find yourself complaining and not giving thanks, do a reality check on yourself. Sometimes that’s all we need to show us that we need to be appreciative and thankful because after all, things could be so much worse then what it truly is!

What serves as a reminder for you to be thankful during your challenges in life?

Surrendering Your Burdens to God

I hope you are encouraged to surrender everything to God, even what you never thought you could give up. ~ Jeremy Camp

Throughout life we will be hit with trials and tribulations. Through these difficult moments we may experience many feelings. Feelings of disappointment, failure, discouragement, among many other feelings. Sometimes it may feel as if the life has been sucked right out of you.  It is during these times we must seek God to see us through. I must admit, at times, that it’s easier said than done. You have all of these emotions flowing. You don’t know if you should take a right or left, then maybe a left or right.

3 Reasons It's Good to Join Social Media Groups

Support, Family, Friends, Social Media, Facebook, Encouragement, Motivation, Goals, Networking

Strangers can be best friends, just as easy as best friends and family can become strangers. ~ Anonymous

We all would love supportive family and friends. But, let’s face it, we all are not privileged to have them. (The Hate is Real!) For a long time I couldn’t understand that because I’m a big supporter of others, be it family, friends, and/or strangers. I don’t always receive the same level of support I give. While, I don’t let that stop my shine, I felt it to be disappointing. It did teach me that, everybody will not celebrate with you at every stage or at any stage in your life. It has nothing to do with you. When I truly grasped and understood that concept, I was able to dismiss it and keep it moving. And, have been moving ever since. (Ha!)

It is always good to spend quality time with family. This past Saturday, I did just that. Spent quality time with family and friends. And, boy did I enjoy myself. My family is big on supporting each other, so family from Houston, Texas and Natchitoches, LA came in to enjoy the festivities. The laughs and reminiscing of old times, was one to be remembered. I love to hear stories from back in the days. Those are priceless stories carried down from generation to generation.

Since, last Tuesday, I’ve been dealing with excruciating migraines. When the pain first hit, I thought it was just my basic headache, something that a Stanback, or BC powder and coke could fix. It became apparent when my headache didn’t go away within a couple of hours that this was not an ordinary headache.

Sometimes you need to give yourself a break when you’ve had a life change. ~ Barbara Freethy

I am so excited to be back with you after a much needed break!

With so much going on in my personal life, a new grand-baby, getting adjusted to the crying in the middle of the night, balancing my time between two grandchildren, work, family life, and a relationship it was hard to focus my mind on anything especially writing. I would like to say in the beginning that I thought, I could handle it all without comprising the quality of work that I provide my audience, but I would be lying.
