INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>

That person you think of as “yourself” exists only for you, and even you don’t really know who the person is. Every other person you meet, have a relationship with, or make eye contact with on the street, creates a version of “you” in their heads, which is different for each. This, as you see each person in a different way.

Remember, you are different. You’re not the same person to your mom, your dad, your siblings, as you are to your coworkers, your neighbors, your friends, or anyone else.

There are a thousand different versions of yourself out there, in people’s minds. A different “you” exists in each version, and yet your “you”, “yourself”, isn’t really a “someone” at all. This makes you special, of course.

Your vision of yourself should have beauty a part of. Can you see yourself in that light, as a beautiful person? You must have the confidence to see yourself in this light. As you have beauty, Rabbits have a beauty all their own.

1.”Get up every morning, tell yourself you are beautiful and gear up to win!”

– Manushi Chhillar.

2. “How dare the world define beauty. God defined beauty when he made you! You are beautiful, you are a true beauty just the way you are!”

– Rachel Hamilton.

3. “By choosing healthy over skinny you are choosing self-love over self-judgment. You are beautiful!”

-Steve Maraboli.

4. “You are worthy of love and respect.
You are beautiful, gifted, and intelligent.
Don’t let the storm make you forget it.”

– Russell T Davies.

5. “Every single thing about you is beautiful.”

– James Frey.

6. “You are beautiful because of the light you carry inside you. You are beautiful because you say you are, and you hold yourself that way.”

– Mary Lambert.

7. “Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.”

– Sophia Loren.

8. “You are beautiful and your beauty is in your optimistic attitude towards life, in your generous heart and in honest thoughts.”

– Unknown.*

9. “I just want everyone to know you are beautiful in your own skin”

– Cheryl Burke.

10. “You are beautiful.
You are strong.
You are worth it.
You are loved.”

THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF MARRIAGE IS ALL ABOUT THE RABBITS

For Kit’s 63rd birthday I bought us 2 little Lionshead bunnies. He was very excited about getting them and fixing up the old chicken coop to house them.

I wanted a double-sided long hutch to put under the bathroom window so I could hear if anything tried to get into the yard to harm them.

Less worry for me. But Kit has his own ideas and he enjoys having a project to work on. And so, the nightmare begins?

One little bunny had 3 black dots on his face, the name, “Juggles”, fit quite well. Of course, a juggler needs a magician, so named the other, “Merlin”, or course.

He went about planning how to rewire the bottom of the 10×10 dog yard to keep the rabbits safe when they ran around. Kit has an issue with anything being shut in, locked up, or closed off.

He has removed the bathroom door and the pantry door in the house and he rarely remembers to close a door behind him, which provides me with some exercise going behind him to shut them.

The wooden coop inside the dog kennel is large enough to house the rabbits comfortably without letting them run loose, but Kit had a plan. He built them a ramp using sand and paint so their little paws wouldn’t slip when they would go in and out of their house. He reinforced most of the bottom third of the wire with smaller wire. He told me there is no way they can escape. He let the rabbits loose.

I looked out to check on them and saw the tiny white bunny, Juggles, running free in our yard!!! Panic! I screamed, and we both ran outside to corner the bunny but we couldn’t find it. He got Jemma on her leash to hopefully track it down and point it out so we could catch it.

Kit said, “A rabbit will not run far from his home, we don’t have a lot to worry about.” Although, these words were not too calming for me.

Jemma stood by the car wagging her tail so we thought that Juggles must be under my car. (Later we realized that Jemma thought she was going for a ride and was merely excited.) Kit ran Jemma back into the house as I went around the car looking for Juggles.

Mind you, I had been to the doctor for excruciating pain in my neck and shoulder, and I was trying to save our bunny and keep my arm still at the same time.

We could not see Juggles anywhere.

I looked over towards the hutch and there he was back inside the kennel. How??? Kit figured he slipped out through the tiny opening at the bottom corner of the door. I didn’t see how he could have gotten back in because the wire was bent into the kennel.

It just was not possible. But my dear husband said it was, so we will go with that. Kit fixed the space and assured me that they can’t escape.

The next day, Kit went out to play with the rabbits and let them loose and came into the house with that scary voice, “Beth, I can’t find the rabbits. They’re gone.”

I thought he was playing with me but the tone of his voice was serious. Out we go to the kennel. I looked inside the coop and there sat the larger bunny, Merlin, eating his timothy hay. Because of his coloring, Kit didn’t see him. We looked over every inch of the whole kennel and then outside in the yard when I spotted Juggles inside the coop.

How did he do that?He had to have been hiding really well. Once again, Kit went around the whole kennel checking for any openings they could have slid through. He told me there is no way they can escape.

For my own mental health, I hung medium-sized crafting bells every few feet around the entire bottom of the kennel, and hung a few on the top. If anything got in or out I should be able to hear the bells from the house.

The next morning, Kit spent time in the kennel watching the rabbits while I was still in the process of waking up. I heard him fly into the house saying that Juggles got loose. Many swear words went through my head but I kept them in there.

He put Jemma on her leash to lead us to wherever our bunny might be and I saw Juggles running around my car. Kit took Jemma inside and I chased Juggles but that little bugger ran under the woodpile and right back inside the kennel!

How in the world did he do that?

We may have named them wrong. Juggles is more like Merlin the magician. We examined the side of the kennel where Juggles reentered, and there was a small gap. How in the world did he know this? Once again, Kit got out the wire and reinforced the kennel and said to me, there is no way they can escape now.

My new husband will be the reason I may be committed to a mental institution one day. And there will be no way I can escape.

==================

Beth and I are enjoying the bunnies. Their home is completely secure now, no worries about any escape.

When my daughters, Jasmine and April, were young, we had a big rabbit hutch; the rabbits were quite a delight. How about you, have you ever had one of these fun and furry little creatures?

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.

Very little is needed to make a great life.

I hope these words I pick do help you.

BE INSPIRED BY THESE WORDS >>

From my book series, “Beyond Your Potential”

Sometimes you need a drastic change in your life to advance, a kick to get you moving again. And yet, there are losses that a kick will do nothing for, such as the death of someone close. We have all had the loss of someone close to us.

When you experience the loss of a loved one, it can really help if you take time to write a letter to this person describing how you feel about them and that you are sad they died. Describe your feelings in detail. Read this letter to yourself every day out loud with a smile on your face and it can really comfort you as you go through the stages of grief.

The six stages of grief we have to go through after a change or loss—denial, isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and ϐinally, acceptance. Getting through each stage can be difficult. Take the time you need, work on getting through each stage and back to life as soon as you can.

In each of my life changes, I remember taking the time to go through each of these stages as I was recovering. Each stage takes its own time to go through. Tears may show, yelling can occur, sadness will be there. Always keep in mind that the grief will not be forever.

As you are getting through your grief, help others through theirs. The more you can help others through their difficulties and change, the sooner you will find your way back to happiness. Understand, though, that you will never be the same after change.

WE MUST SURRENDER TO THE CHANGE,
AND THEN LEARN TO USE IT FOR OUR FUTURE.

Surrendering allows us to move through the change and learn from it. It does not mean giving up; it simply means accepting the change as is.

Yes, this acceptance of change can be a terribly hard thing to do, but it must be done in order to move forward. You must look toward the future and think of what has to change to make your life even better than it currently is.

Find the power in yourself and don’t give it away by holding onto negative factors from any change. As we go through changes, we have to focus on them at the time, but don’t hold on too long—move your focus to your positive future as soon as you can.

COMPOSE A NOBLE BOOK AND WRITE A BEST-SELLER.

YOU ARE AMAZING—PLAY YOUR PART!
