BE A MOVER AND SHAKER

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Nothing happens by itself, not even a hurricane.  Action causes a reaction and depending upon the reaction you want you have to take a specific measure.  If only we could be like Samantha Stevens and twitch our little noses to make things happen.  Btw, you do know who Samantha Stevens is, I hope!

Today's quote is, "Action is what lets the if onlys win."  If only!  What a statement.  How many times have you said that to yourself?  I know I have.  The only way to get rid of the "if onlys" is to take a chance and act.  

Life is fun and wonderful and hopefully for all of us, it is also long.  Don't sit back and think about the what ifs.  Be a doer, be a mover and be a shaker!  It is your life and you are here to make the most of it!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

TO CHANGE OR NOT

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Our day is filled with decisions from the moment we wake up.  Everything from the insignificant to the dramatic.  Change is part of that decision making process.  To change or not to change?  Only we know the answer.  

Today's quote is, "To make a change or not is an equally strong decision - listen carefully to your intuition."  Some of us prefer things just as they are while others desire something new and different.  Whatever road you choose is still a road decided.  Your intuition plays a key role in everything you do and if it doesn't it means you aren't listening.  

That uncomfortable feeling in your gut is telling you something and your job is to figure out what exactly it is saying.  We may have lots of questions but the answers lie within.  Let your intuition guide you to the changes you need to make or to what needs to remain as is.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

INNER PEACE EQUALS JOY

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  When we have gone through a stressful situation it can really take a toll on our bodies and minds.  We feel depleted of energy both physically and mentally.  There's nothing like that sigh of relief when everything works out.

Today's quote is, "Unlimited is the amount of joy received from inner peace."  Emotions are wide and varied and are a part of our existence.  Learning to manage them takes time and lots of it!  When we do finally release stress and anxiety that peaceful feeling within us is indescribable.  

Is it possible to have a life without stress?  Absolutely not!  Meditation definitely helps but unless you are dead, you will have thoughts running through your mind.  It comes down to managing those thoughts and feelings and not letting them rule you.

When you reach that state of relaxation and inner peace there is nothing quite like it!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

RELEASE THE GREEN EYED MONSTER

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Instagram has recently been accused of contributing to teenage depression.  Let's face it.  Our inner teenager is alive and well in all of us especially when we look at social media.  Look at all those people having fun!  How come I'm not having so much fun?  Look at all the places everyone is going and I'm just happy to be paying my bills.  How sweet!  Look how in love everyone is!  Does this sound familiar?  Have you had this conversation in your mind?

Whether what we see is true or not has no bearing on our lives.  Not everyone is having fun every minute of every day.  That fabulous trip you see posted could have taken months of saving.  Those people that are so in love?  Who knows the trials and tribulations they already went through.  Why do these posts make us feel envious?   Why can't we be happy for someone else?

Jealousy is just as damaging as hate.  They are emotions that cause internal damage as one begins to find fault in what they are doing wrong.  Turn on the off switch to jealousy and see how much better you begin to feel.

Today's quote is, "Don't expect a jealous person to find joy in your happiness when they can't find joy in their own."  Some people find it so hard to be truly happy for someone but the truth is you never know what someone else's life is like.  You don't know the struggles, sadness and upsets in a friend's life let alone someone you barely know on Facebook!

Sadness, happiness, joy, misery, etc. etc. etc. are all part of life.  Be happy for someone else because we all want people to be happy for us!

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CHANGE IT UP

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.   Chaos in our world is nothing new.  It happens on both a global and personal level but when it is personal we feel it a whole lot more.  Sometimes it is a signal from the Universe to change the status quo and move out of the rut you don't even know you are in.

Today's quote is, "When conditions for change seem less than ideal that may actually be the ideal time for change."  The hardest thing we can do is to change and that can apply to anything from the breakfast you eat, to the way you dress, to the route you take to work and just about anything you can think of.  Change your life?  NO WAY!  I'm happy in my misery.  WHAT?  

Most of us would prefer to be miserable rather than take steps to alter our situations.  I remember a particularly awful year at my day job.  I worked with an extremely difficult child and equally difficult parent.  When the time came to request who to work with the following year I actually asked to be paired with the same child rather than take the opportunity to move to another school.  

New time, new building, new people, new everything but all I thought of was what if it was terrible, not what if it could be the best change I could make!  When you view change as a positive instead of a potential negative it makes it a lot easier.  Is it easy?  Not always but you never know the rewards you receive until you make that move!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

KEEPING STANDARDS

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  A level of quality or attainment is also known as a standard.  When we think of the word standard, quality comes to mind.  We can say, "I have high standards," but what does that actually mean?  It means that when you go to a restaurant you expect it to be clean, the staff to be courteous and the food to be delicious.  Who would willingly sit down in an establishment with roaches running around the floor?

Yes, that is an extreme example.  I suppose if one is hungry enough those high standards might drop down a tad.  Most of us were taught to work hard, try hard and to always do


our best.  We were taught manners and to be polite.  These days it seems like hard work is subjective.  Manners and respect for others seems to have vanished.  Does that mean we should follow along?

Today's quote is, "In the absence of standards we accept mediocrity from ourselves and everyone else."  Society has changed so much and not necessarily for the better.  If you're reading this then I know you also look at social media.  It literally sickens me the way strangers can "talk" to strangers.  Everyone wants to be heard but no one is willing to listen and if a disagreement occurs, nasty words are typed with abandon.  

We are better than that.  Why sink when you can rise?  It is just as easy to be kind as to be cruel.  Being cruel hurts your heart and the hearts of others.  Keep your standards high in everything you do.  Not only will you feel good but so will those around you.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

RESPECT YOURSELF

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  So many things we say we would never do but there we are doing them.  Have you ever apologized for something you didn't do?  Have you ever swallowed your pride but would rather have choked?  Life tells us to suck it up cause that's the way it is.  

Don't think I haven't been there.  Who hasn't said yes when they wanted to say no.  Who has kept their lips sealed when they wanted to scream.  There comes a time when the answer must be no and your thoughts, opinions and voice must be heard.

Today's quote is, "Never compromise on self-respect."  There comes a time when enough is enough and we can no longer allow our blood pressure to soar.  That's when we know that ship has sailed be it a job,  relationship,  friendship or present situation.  You gotta do what you gotta do but only you know when you have had enough.  Part of loving yourself is respecting yourself and that is one area in life that cannot be compromised!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy
