With my words, I hope to throw some oblique light upon your life.
I want to inspire you to see life in a different and/or better way.
BE TAKEN AWAY WITH ME
ON WONDERFUL ADVENTURES!
INTRO TO THIS WEEK >>
Not much happened this week, projects in the house to take care of and enjoying my time with Beth. As you know, we married recently, a big change for each of us – but the right thing for us to do.
In life, we make time for what is important to us.
These things are important to me, so I made the time.
Here are some ideas for you to follow if you need to find things to do, yourself >>
This may seem like a rather long list, yet if you pick just a couple things on this list that you know won’t take much time and go for it, your life energy will shift.
We get so busy, and there seems to be this big rush to the finish line. Just remember that on the way to the finish line, there is a beautiful view—open your eyes and see it.
These are just a few ideas for you, I’m sure you can think of more. Let me know your ideas, please.
Life is happening all the time – are you keeping up?
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.
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.

MY DAILY JOTTINGS >>
3/13—Today I made some juggling/flower sticks for our friend, Tomara. She took photos at our wedding (they came out great). She asked me if I would make her a set of juggling/devil sticks, and I did. I like to make things and to make them so that they turn out excellent. That is a choice in everything you do, to make it mediocre or go for excellence. Do right.
Here is our new one, Fern.
3/14—For the fireplace, we had purchased a bunch of wood chopped up for us. But, to start a fire you need to use smaller wood, kindling it is. So, off I went in search of small wood.
You might have found us on the ground today. It is, at times, called “Earthing”. Felt good to lay in the sun with Jemma and Beth. Healing, perhaps.
3/15—When we got the rabbits we initially kept them in the house with us. After a few days I discovered I am deathly allergic to the cute little bunnies. We had them inside because it was still cold at night. But, they had to go out – I could not breathe and my allergies were horrendous. So, out they went to their bunny-hutch.
3/16—I could not take it anymore! So, off I went to the doc about my allergies. I was prescribed three different medications. Now I just have to wait until the meds are mailed to me – until then I will have to go through agony – yikes!
To add to our zoo, today Beth bought us a turtle, very nice. We also purchased a tank, the only home this little shelled creature will ever know. I can’t feel bad for this little one, if she has nothing to compare it to and knows nothing else.
How about you, do you want more to your world? Also, we got the turtle because I will not be allergic to the little terrapin.
Included in our zoo are the horses across the road out front. There was just one there, I started calling and all four made their appearance. What a nice thing we have so close to us.
YOUR CHALLENGE FOR THE WEEK >>
Are you taking the time to invest in little things?
Take time this week to walk in nature, to feel a leaf, to lay on the grass.
NEXT BLOG >>
Hoping the medications work and I am feeling a lot better.
I will let you know.

THAT YOU CAN WRITE ABOUT!
