PLEASE NO ONE BUT YOURSELF

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Have you been the receiver of unwanted advice?  Of course you have.  We all have.  The only time advice should be given is when it is asked.  There is always the potential to receive really bad and even potentially harmful advice.

You see not everyone has your best interest at heart.  There are those so called friends who delight in watching you fall with no intention of helping you up yet somehow we acquaint longevity of friendship with love and care and feel we need to adhere to their guidance.

Today's quote is, "I gave up pleasing those who offer ill advice and find happiness in my failure."  I'm writing this in the hopes that you listen to this quote and if I may be so bold, take my advice!  Asking for advice is tricky.  You need to ask yourself if you really want it, need it or will listen to it. 

Here's an idea.  Listen to your intuition.  Your intuition is truly your best friend and the most trustworthy source of support.  Your intuition will always point you in the right direction.  If you must ask advice from a friend make sure that person really and truly is indeed, your friend.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

CLIMB EVERY MOUNTAIN

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  I love to hike.  There's really good hiking where I live so its great that I never have to travel too far to get in a good dose of nature.  Hiking isn't for everyone. Its exhilarating and tiring, exhausting and rejuvenating but sometimes those mountains seen way too high. The choice is yours, to climb or not to climb.

Today's quote is, "Mountains are there to climb - to admire - to stand in your way - you decide."  You know yourself better than anyone.  Are you up for a challenge?  Are you content where you are? Are you the type to let nothing stand in your way?  I'm no one to judge or criticize as there is no right or wrong but how do you know what's on the other side unless you climb up?  Beauty can be seen from all sides but wouldn't it be fun to see it from another angle? 

We are in charge of our thoughts and actions.  Sometimes we need to be still before we make a move.  Take your time.  There is no rush.  That mountain isn't going anywhere!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

FLYING AND FALLING

Good morning everyone.  Happy Tuesday.  Did you ever watch a baby taking their first steps?  The determination is comparable to nothing.  No matter how many times they fall, immediately they get up and start again.  Throughout our lives we have fallen more times than we can count. As we get older that determination to get up is sometimes not as strong as it once was and so we stay down rather than rise.

Desire must be stronger than complacency and that my friends is how we need to roll!  Today's quote is, "I've soared and failed - I've flown and fallen - I will always get up and continue to rise."   We've all had our setbacks and failures.  We've all experienced disappointment and defeat.  We have a choice.  We can stay on the ground or rise to the top.  Does it take work, determination and desire?  Hell yea!  

We've all been there.  Success is more fun than failure but the only way to get there is to lick your wounds, dust yourself off and continue to rise.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

THE SONG OF PRAISE - Thursday, 6/3

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Take a moment and think back on a really difficult time in your life.  Now take a moment to remember the outcome.  Was it a learning experience?  Did you cry your eyes out?  Did you discover your inner Superman?  Trying times take a toll on us but we get through them.  Life is filled with wonder and dread.  It can't always be wonderful and thankfully not always dreadful.  The important thing is that we got through it and here we are.  Have you acknowledged how you persevered during your hardship?

Today's quote is, "Sing the praises of your accomplishments and feats with pride knowing what you overcame was far more difficult."  In times of suffering the pain can be unbearable.  We aren't thinking how strong we are.  We aren't thinking at all.  We are just trying to survive the moment but when pain and suffering end how do you reflect on it?  Do you beat yourself up over what you said or didn't say or what you did or didn't do?

When do you give yourself credit for getting through pain and suffering?  We beat up ourselves up, we put ourselves down, we acknowledge our limitations but not our strengths.  It takes a boat load of strength to get through hard times.  Sing a song of praise and I will be happy to sing it with you!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

BLESSINGS FROM THE UNIVERSE

 Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  Someone has a birthday today.  I know they're out there thinking of ways they will celebrate whether it is birthday number 5, 25, 55 or older.  I love my birthday.  It makes me feel special and honored to have been blessed with the gift of life from my parents and from the Universe who obviously thought I should be here.  

Life is just one of the blessings that have been bestowed upon me but there are so many more such as  water.  That's right.  Water is a blessing.  Having enough to eat is a blessing but so are plates.  Rain is a blessing but so are windows.  Clothing is a blessing as is heat.  I could go on forever.  Its not just the big things that we have been blessed with but the ones we take for granted. 

Today's quote is, "The Universe has blessed me with miracles each and every day."  Don't just read it.  Acknowledge it.  Take a look around you.  Are you sitting on a chair?  Do you have shoes on your feet?  Did you just have breakfast?  Maybe its  payday on Friday.  Each one of these is a blessing.  

We've been told to begin our day with gratitude.  And why not?  Saying thank you is the least we can do for the blessings we have received large and small. I would like to take this moment to acknowledge the Universe for blessing me with my beautiful twins twenty-two years ago today!!! Happy birthday J & J! 

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy

DECISIONS DECISIONS

Good morning everyone and happy Thursday.  Its Thursday for sure but is it happy?  You get to decide.  One of the first decisions you get to make is if your day will be a good one or not.  Decisions, decisions.  We have so many to make its hard to always make the right one.  Sometimes we ponder too much and then regret it five minutes later.  

No decision is the wrong one if that is where your instincts lead you. Today's quote is, "The decision you made was the right one even if it was the wrong one it is what was necessary at that time."  How many times have you said, "if only I knew then what I know now!" hence the next phrase, "hindsight is 20/20."  Unless you are able to foresee the future you have no way of knowing how a decision of your choosing will affect you later on in life.

We are lucky to have free will.  It allows us to make all kinds of choices.  It allows us to be spontaneous.  It also provides learning experiences for us.  I won't say never look back because we do that all the time.  What I can say is never look back with regret.  Whatever choice you made at a particular time in your life was absolutely what was supposed to happen.  

We are shaped by events, circumstances and choices and while looking back they may have not been the best, they were the exact right ones, circumstances and choices for that very time in your life!

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone! ~Love, Amy

THE LONG WINDING ROAD

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday.  We begin life full of wonder unaware of what is in front of us. Its exciting not to know where you are going.  As we get older we sometimes lose that sense of wonder, wanting to know exactly where every step will lead us.  Well that's no fun!  Bring back that childish wonder.  Ignite that curiosity,  Make mistakes.  Lots of them.


Travel a different path.  Today's quote is, "Many a divergent road will be taken - follow along unquestioning as your soul is taking you exactly where you are meant to go."  

To quote Dr. Seuss, "On the places you'll go!" Not to mention the places you shouldn't have gone to BUT how would you know that unless you went in the first place!!  Life at its best and worst is about experience.  Losing a game, going to a funeral, eating brussels sprouts but also getting the top score, dancing at a wedding and savoring chewy chocolate chip cookies.  You have to eat brussels sprouts to know you don't like them.

What do you want to do when you grow up?  What do you want to be?  Most of us haven't a clue but somehow we all end up exactly where we are supposed to doing exactly what we are meant to.  Trust the Universe and the divine plan set out just for you and your soul will surely follow along.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! Love~Amy
