Gratitude is not a posture it’s a lifestyle

28 Dec 2022 By Admin

So, what do we know about gratitude?  We can start by saying that gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve overall health, deal with adversity, and build stronger relationships! Now. What do we know about lifestyle? It’s the way in which a person lives. It’s a person’s interest, opinions, and behaviors.  Saying yes to things you love and no to the things you don’t! Basically the freedom to live a life that is self-designed. Let’s tie the two together! Gratitude is not a posture it’s a lifestyle! I...


The Ghost of Christmas Past, Present and the Future

05 Dec 2022 By Admin

PAST: (Represents Memories) Many many years ago, (lol) as a child Christmas was perfect!! All the days in December leading up to the 25th day was nothing short of amazing. Neighborhoods East to West and North to South flickered and shined brightly!! I remember those nights my family and I piled in the car to go sightseeing and it felt like I was riding and watching stars right in front of my eyes. I remembered my siblings and I all imagined being some place magical. I can remember going into the stores with mom and walking into the feeling of comfort from the smell of apples and cinnamon an...


Don’t Judge a book by its cover

22 Nov 2022 By Admin

On a daily basis I take the same route to work. For a while now I have been riding past this building on my way home with my music blasting and singing along. Occasionally on my drive home I noticed something very colorful. I can’t say that I paid close attention but somehow at some point the vibrant colors of t-shirts flapping in the wind grabbed my attention when passing by. There were quite a few at this time. I noticed the t-shirts had some numbers and letters on them. It seemed as if more were being added by the day and the illumination of colors, it began posing as a landmark for m...


If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands…

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands… It seems that people’s happiness depends on what’s going on in our lives at the moment. If we’ve slept well the evening before and awoke feeling energized, most likely were happy or in a good mood. If traffic was light and flowing and we made it to work on time every day this week…hmmmm we’re probably happy. If we got a compliment on our outfit, or hair and makeup, or found money balled up in the bottom of our purse…at that moment we feel a sense of happiness. If we got a raise on the job or ...


The COST of living is going to KILL us…

26 Oct 2022 By Admin

On September 4th I made a run to the grocery store with a budget and a small list in mind. (Now we all know what happens when we step into any store with a list in mind and not in hand$$$) My first trip was to a nearby Shop rite. Here, my goal was to buy Sunday night dinner. As I walked the aisles attentively selecting particular items there seemed to be something right next to that item that I needed as well so unconsciously without thinking twice I grabbed it and through it in the cart. Continuing up and down each aisle my cart gradually filled up. The more things I put in the cart (mainly n...


How heavy is your glass of water?

26 Oct 2022 By Admin

Have you ever thought about why mentally you feel overwhelmed? Why the weight of everyday life can feel so heavy? Why although we wake up feeling rejuvenated, conquering the repetitive cycle of our thoughts and decision making can weigh us down? I often wonder why I’m always fatigued. Why even on my most relaxing days I crave to stay in bed because my energy is on zero. One day I thought long and hard on how to put my feelings into a perspective that I could best understand. I decided to pour myself a tall refreshing glass of water and after taking the first sip here’s what I c...
