It’s What You Do When Nobody Is Looking!

It’s the kind words
A simple smile
More than showing up
Going the extra mile
It’s giving everything
When you’ve got nothing left
Sharing a little hope
With a single breath
That’s how you change the world

Those are lyrics to a Newsboys song called “That’s How You Change The World”  and I couldn’t agree more!  It is what we do when nobody is in the room, behind closed doors, it is when we go the extra mile, it is when we take time to smile. Have we ever passed by someone we knew was hurting? Why not take a moment to smile or ask if you can help?  This IS how we change the world….share love with others and be grateful! Show gratitude everyday by our actions.

Be love.



I Want To Thank YOU!

awardI want to thank YOU! Those of you who take the time to give and receive blogging awards are awesome! I know these awards are truly about Networking, and I think that is great! This is one of the reasons I always take part in giving and receiving awards. I am building a platform/brand (as well as I just want to reach more people to hopefully inspire/encourage them!) and using this award as networking helps. It is free marketing.  I appreciate that! Thank you!!

Look it took me 35 minutes to create the award blog post! The return on that investment, in respect to new friends and readers, is invaluable!! Not too mention it is just pure kindness for me to acknowledge the time you took to nominate me! That builds me up and I hope you too!

So selfish me I like to be kind to others for what it gives me!So thank you!! And please know I appreciate you all! ❤

Leave A Legacy of Gratitude!


I want to leave a legacy to my family! I have thought about this for a long time now, and I want to leave a legacy of gratitude to my family. I want them, when they think back on me, to think of gratitude, kindness, and love. But I want it to go further than that, I want it to fundamentally change the core of my family! I want generations to come to be affected by my choices today and we know as a rule that is how this works. My family will indeed be affected by what I do today.

We know that children raised in families of negativity, in general, have a higher chance of being the same way- no this is not a steadfast rule!!  But you certainly have a greater chance of having a future life filled with negativity if you’re raised surrounded by negativity, right? OK.

So I want to live my life in such a way that it trickles down and affects my children, my grandchildren and generations beyond them.

Be the change you want to see in the world!  It works. Do it!
