poolGrateful! I AM grateful for my pool….I posted this picture yesterday on my FB page and my Instagram! I wanted to share with YOU! Why? Because I like to post things I am grateful for!  Yesterday, today, and always I am grateful to be alive and able to get my exercise (at least for now….snow anybody?) in this pool!!  ❤

Have a gratitude filled day!

Rejuvenation………..to restore….

beachchairsI know I have been silent for a couple of weeks……. I have a great reason!! I am away…on vacation….relaxing…..refreshing…….rejuvenating!

Yes! I am restoring myself to my youthful vigor and passion ( for writing and growing) !  And I am not disappointed so far in the results! I am working on some interesting stuff! This Florida sun has some healing qualities for sure!

I am looking forward to returning with vigor to you….dear reader, to share with you the things that are on my mind!

Till then…..may the light of God surround you (us) and keep you (us) safe, joyful, and grateful!!

Heart Health and Negativity!

This is a flash from the past! This blogs past! Taken from the archives, originally dated 03/16/11 !  Still relevant? Absolutely!  ( as usual I have left it unedited!)





People who are chronically hostile and angry have higher levels of blood cholesterol and blood pressure, which are two major risk factors for Chronic Heart Disease and early death……do you need more motivation to be happy, joyful and grateful for all your blessings? Thought not! LOL

They say an apple a day will keep the Dr away…..well maybe with that apple you need a gratitude affirmation! What do you think? Every morning when you awaken, before you put your feet on the ground, take a look around the room and whatever your eyes come upon say “thank you” for it. When I wake in the morning I usually say “thank you” to God for allowing me to have another day in which to get it right! I am on a spiritual…self-development journey and that is all I can ask each and everyday. Some days I say more, usually I say a lot more….but at the very least I make sure that I thank Him for another day.

Make each day a day of gratitude and if that sounds like too much for you then maybe you just need to take a minute each day to think of someone else….that usually is all a person needs to wake up to all of their blessings!

Try it and see what I mean…..

I for one am grateful to have a blog where I can come and write what ever I am thinking…… Thank you!
