Faced With – Part 1

A Challenge

Check Out! – Faced With – Part Deux

Do you find you inner warrior and whip out a can of whoop arse? OR Do you go inside yourself to deal? I sometimes think of stress as a test and a test to your body, mind and spirit, especially your emotions. Every test is different and sometimes you say “What now? Really?”!

I know I say this! Then I assess the situation and decide on a plan of attack as to how to deal and react. Sometimes it just plain sucks and feels like you are having an out of body experience. I know I feel this way at times! Sometimes my mind goes to the extreme and takes me right to the very edge!

Choose To Be a Warrior

“Be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” ~ Nora Ephron

How do you strengthen your coping skills muscle?

I know I take certain challenges/situations personal because I feel as if someone is trying to be hurtful towards me. Then other times I want to strike back and be just as hurtful. That is not a great reaction to have and is really uncool! Your reaction will make a difference in how long it takes to recover and move forward.

YOU have the POWER to CHANGE Things for the BETTER!

Is it possible that this just might change your life for the better or open new doors for you?

I realize that at times you have NO CONTROL over what happens in your life! However, how you handle and react to the challenge is UP TO YOU! Think in terms of a “Temporary Setback”! Think POSITIVE not NEGATIVE!

Reaching Out

Neil Diamond Said IT Best in Sweet Caroline

Reaching Out, Touching ME, Touching YOU!!! Here’s to the Blogging Community and YOU Who Make IT Happen Every Day!

I have recently made a connection with the person who nominated me for the Liebster Blog. Lisa at Food Table/La Vie Eclectique usually keeps me guessing when it comes to her posts. I love that and that she truly keeps it eclectic when it comes to living life. Thanks so much!

Leibster in German means “dearest”, “beloved” or “favorite”. The idea of the Leibster Award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers all in the spirit of gathering more connections.

I present the Liebster Award to the following Bloggers . . . Drum Roll Please!

Please note that some of these bloggers may have already been awarded this award as well as may have more than 200 followers.
