INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>

By writing this blog I am seeing that time goes so quickly. All of a sudden, here it is, Friday, “again”. Does your life go as quickly as mine? Of course, the obvious answer is “YES”. We need to make the most of the time we have left.

Continuing the painting of our abode, things are turning out excellent. Painting is a basic change for the better. A new paint job can turn your home into a different, and better, arrangement. Change is good, paint where you must. Also, as you see by the photo, we are adding border to make it even nicer.

Change and makeovers are interesting. These are some of the hardest things you can do, but the payoff will be fantastic!

Here is a list of simple makeovers which will help your life, much.
How many can/will you complete? >>

WORDS TO INSPIRE YOU! >>

Inspirational quotes and motivational sayings have an amazing ability to change the way we feel about life and can change our thinking.

This is why I find them so interesting, challenging, and important on our path to joy and happiness and finding ways to inspire ourselves as well as others.

Inspirational quotes and ideas provide us with a quick and timely burst of wisdom to get our focus back, offering the inspiration needed for the day or occasion.

I hope to inspire you with my words.
Words have power.
At any age, you can (and should)
make changes to make your life better.

You see, the way you think and feel about yourself, including your beliefs and expectations about what is possible for you, determines everything that happens in your life. It all derives from your quality of thinking.

When you improve the quality of your thinking,
you change the quality of your life—sometimes instantly!

Just as positive words can make someone smile, and/or, a well-timed amusing quote can make someone laugh, your own thoughts react to the world in real-time. You have this control!

In fact, you have complete control over only one thing in the universe — your thinking — and that’s where motivational quotes come in!

To keep your motivation, you have to use each day as an opportunity for improvement, to be better, to get a little bit closer to your goals. It might sound like a lot of work—and with your busy schedule—next to impossible. But you can do it!

Self-talk is so important—THINK RIGHT!
Motivational words, yes, they’re just words.
But they’re positive words; they will keep you on track.

Remember, you are only as young as the last time you changed your mind.
Keep your thoughts and self-talk fun and productive and always reaching for advancement.

Remember, very little is needed to make a great life.
I hope these words I pick do help you.

********************
BE INSPIRED BY THESE WORDS >>
Let your unique talents and positive energy inspire self-assurance in others.
Wherever you go, always bring your own sunshine, no matter what the weather.
If you want a bright light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining.
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated every day.

COMPOSE A NOBLE BOOK AND WRITE A BEST-SELLER.
YOU ARE AMAZING—PLAY YOUR PART!

MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
This week we are finishing up the painting of the fire room. Came out nice, let me know what you think of the photos.

Using three different colors that go together well, that is what we applied. Usual painters, because it takes too long to use different colors, paint the entire inside of a house the same color, then use gloss paint for the molding and such.

Living in different colors brings a certain joy to your mind and life. We plan on making each room a different color and environment. So, as you go through the house things will be different as you go.

Using masking tape you can make very defined lines to keep the paint inside. We would also do some freehand painting. When a little yellow goes into the red paint, after drying, go back and touch up the pumpkin. You keep doing this until you find perfection.

Where does your home need a paint job?

We plan on making each room a different color and environment. So, as you go through the house things will be unique as you go.

I never went to school or learned from a painter; I learn as I go. I never took any writing courses or studied writing books, but I’ve written fifteen books. My first, Juggling with Finesse, sold over 25,000 copies. I learn as I go and “I” make things turn out right (or write?)

Something I have told people in the past, am telling you, now –
If someone else can do it, so can you!
You just have to find the way that
will work for you.
You can use this advice for any task. Thinking in this way will give you the confidence necessary to achieve!

Even after going through my first accident and 37-day coma, then getting hit by another truck some years later, I still strive toward things I don’t think (or others don’t) that I can do. Demand self-drive in yourself.

The key to my success is to challenge myself! That is a major thing I did to keep moving ahead through my changes. That can add so much to your life. Constantly challenge yourself toward the excellence that is within you, begin today!

Do you challenge yourself enough in your life?

“Since this week’s blog is about enjoying the remodeling of our home I thought you should know about the joys of remodeling our lives to go with the home.

The painting and sanding and fixing parts of the house have been mostly easy. Kit is positive, upbeat, and joyful; sometimes that can get on my last nerve. I have a mostly anxiety-filled, depressed personality.

I have been afraid to venture out of my comfort zone for so many years, and when I do, it’s a huge big deal. Although, with him in my life, I have been truly happy. Even somewhat joyful. He brings a child-like demeanor, which it seems, I needed. (not every day, of course).

Living alone for 8 years, I’ve learned to fend for myself so having assistance is hard for me to accept. Just do things my way and all will be well. I need my space.

But no, Kit likes to test my resolve and encourages me to try something new and I fight against it, but because I love him so much, I give in and do what he suggests, and well, it’s OK.

Everything is going to be OK. I have “bad” days where I wonder what he is doing with me. I question his motives. I have serious trust issues. He could find someone easier to live with. He could find someone more positive to be friends with.

I am not used to having a man who actually enjoys being around me all the time. No one else could stand me for any length of time. Kit is supportive of me and stays with me when I have a meltdown. He comforts me and works with me to just breathe and relax. He is so good, I feel I don’t deserve him, but I am so glad he is here.

I could have stopped there but I don’t want to make him out to be perfect. He has some nefarious (the word we use around here) ways about him. I’ll save them for the next blog. haha!!”
