Mondays

Mondays. I’m not sure when Mondays became such a “bad” day, but they certainly don’t bring about many good feelings anymore for most people. I do wonder if those that are retired or don’t have the general 9-5 Monday through Friday job feel the same way about Mondays. I know that I would occasionally get…

Choose Positive

It’s Wednesday and it’s time to really look at our week. This week has already been full of problems in my world. I don’t know about yours, but my week has been a bit hectic already. My youngest has tested positive for the flu (though we are certainly glad it isn’t covid!) and it is…

Prioritize YOU!

We are in the second week of the new year. Have you prioritized yourself yet? What are you going to do for YOU this year? Haven’t thought of that yet? Well now is the time! I know I’m not one to really talk here as a mom, wife, teacher, artist, etc. I do often leave…

Take a Risk!

Motivational Monday here we come! Okay so who really enjoys getting out of their comfort zone? Really? None of us. We’d all much rather stay in our comfy beds with our comfy warm blankets wrapped around us making us feel warm, safe and secure. However, the day doesn’t “start” until we get up, get out…

Today is the Day!

Friday! Yay! Week one of this new year is in! So what are you waiting for? I know, many of us are perfectionists. I know I am. I have been going back and forth with this blog for years now trying to get it “right”. Then I realized that I’m never going to get it…

Artistically loving others

Yea, you read that right. The objective today? Love others! I don’t know about artistically, but I do think that sharing love among others is certainly something we should all do more. Too often in this world we are too busy trying to one up each other or prove that we are somehow better than…

Small Steps!

Day 3! Here we go, taking steps forward! I like this quote because it reminds me that we don’t have to take huge leaps of faith to achieve our goals. Sometimes it can be simple little things that move us in the right (or just a different) direction. Last year I made the decision to…

Failure is not the end. Embrace it!

Day 2….lets talk about failure. So last year, you failed. You didn’t reach your goals. You didn’t make the mark you wanted to make. You barely survived the year. Guess what? You didn’t “fail”. Failure has become something we ultimately fear. We don’t want to be seen as a failure or even seen failing at…

New Years!

Happy New Years! It is now 2022! So, we met some and missed some goals last year. Regardless of where you fall into that, it was an interesting and trying year. Too many family members lost to us and so many trying times! One thing I wanted to do for this next year is to…

Fall inspirations!

We are truly in the fall spirit here! My favorite section of trees have fully embraced their fall colors. I have sections on my way into town that I love watching every fall. One section is all yellows and golds! When the morning light hits them, they glow with a warm golden light I only…
