Counting Your Blessings

Saying Thanks!

Take a moment to reflect on how much you have to be thankful for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly!

Being Grateful

Think about how you feel in being grateful! Health and Happiness. Good and Positive. How does your mood and attitude change for the better, right!

The people you love. The experiences you are grateful for. The memories you cherish.

Tuning IT Out


Love this quote!

Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself,

and know that everything in life has purpose.

There are no mistakes, no coincidences, all events are

blessings given to us to learn from. ~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Disruptions and distractions are one thing then you add in the noise! There are times that constant noise sets me on edge. I feel my stress hormones kick in, my blood pressure starts to rise and my body goes into sweat mode. All I want is quiet, silence and solitude!

I need to tune out the world and go within myself for a bit! I need to take time for myself to relax, rest and reenergize. I need to reconnect with myself from the inside out!

I love being with my greatest someone and adventure partner! I enjoy getting outside to become one with nature and explore the great outdoors. I enjoy getting my exercise on. I love a good read that I can get lost in!

I find myself at the end of the work day either turning off the radio or rocking it out on the way home! I enjoy taking back roads to avoid the rush hour traffic. I enjoy driving past pastures and farm animals. I love the alone time with myself to decompress and not bring work home with me!

Keeping It Simple

Do you think about the importance in HOW you live your life?

I do! How I see myself and how I measure myself, especially my self worth matters in how I live my life. It goes way beyond these three questions too! 1) Am I good enough? 2) Have I achieved enough? 3) Did I earn enough? Enough already, right!

At the end of the day what matters the most to you is what is truly important! It is the SIMPLE that you encounter every day that you fail to notice and that at times has the bigger impact in your life than anything else!


The Basic Questions

What questions do you ask yourself on a daily, weekly or monthly basis?

My Top 2

  1. Who and What Do I Love?
  2. What Did I Learn and/or Experience?

There is nothing better than giving and receiving LOVE! You reap the benefits and the rewards when you come from a place of love. Love has such a range of emotions and feelings all wrapped into one! Love takes courage and bravery as well as patience and trust. Especially in yourself!

The learning and life lessons are so important to experience growth as a person! You can learn something from everyone you encounter on a daily basis. You can learn by doing too. You just have to be open to the possibilities and embrace the opportunities! Remember to learn is to take risks and make mistakes too.

Do you know you grow everyday through each and every experience? It can be a baby step to a GIANT LEAP. It can be simple to challenging.  I have to remind myself to appreciate that growth because it means I am learning and experiencing life!


Another Set of Questions to Ask Yourself

  • How Do You Share and Connect?

I enjoy sharing and connecting with myself and with other people! It is inspiring and motivating. It is those teachable moments that help you learn, grow and experience in yourself and in living your life. Who knows you may impact someone’s life for the better too! 

I strongly believe in connecting, especially with yourself and your greatest someones! It is that sense of being valued as a person at a deeper level. It is that sense of belonging at another level. It is about building each other up, supporting one another and gaining life experiences together!

You have a story to tell that is unique to you!

  • How Am I Being Challenged?

I am talking about how you challenge yourself! I am not talking about struggles and problems. I strongly believe in being challenged because it helps me learn, experience and grow as a person! I want to put the best me out there each and every day.

A little vulnerability and humility is good to have to when you are challenging yourself! It is about taking risks, stretching the old comfort zone and here is a BIG ONE asking for help. It is about having a sense of humor and a good laugh at yourself at times. You will be AMAZED at what YOU CAN DO!


The BEST Question To Ask Yourself Is . . .

  • What Are You Grateful For?

It is pretty bad at times that I have to remind myself that a) I am enough and b) that I have enough when it comes to living the life I want! I am practicing gratitude, becoming more aware and just being more mindful in my life. I am so blessed in what I do have and I count those blessings too!

I am not saying that you have to interrogate yourself under a bright bulb every day, week or month, but remind yourself to REFLECT on the GOOD in your life!!!

Take a Number

Take a Seat

I have “Next Disease”! I am always looking for the next anything. I fool myself into thinking that I am not holding myself back by looking forward to the next thing in my life. Next, please!

Taking a #!!!

I am learning to embrace the unknown with open arms! I am discovering that being open to the possibilities can be a life lesson as well as a blessing. I am growing while expanding my world! I enjoy welcoming my world with open eyes instead of with my eyes closed and my head under the covers. Much better way to live life!

I need to push less and let go of the control at times! Instead I need to get in sync with my inner drive and outer ambitions. I can no longer force things to happen in my life! I am learning to be and be more in the present.

One BIG World Out There

I am starting to believe that the journey is the process of living my life! I am in charge of living the life I want. I am finding inner happiness, becoming healthier and getting out there more. The destination is the here and now!

I am discovering my beauty from the inside out! I am taking the time I need to love and do for myself. I am slowing down in a way that feels good for me. I no longer want to hold myself back!
