So true! Nothing more stimulating and energizing.




We are so busy looking down at our phones when we are out and about, it seems we rarely smile at each other anymore. Or we don’t trust people so we don’t smile but frown and look dower all the time. Isn’t that a great way to be? NOT!

How hard is it to smile? It is a gift that costs nothing yet gives so much joy and happiness to everyone who receives it. We need to spend more time looking up and giving a simple gift to those around us.

SMILE… it does your face good!



Oh so true!

I believe it is more important to see the beauty in someone by who they are rather than their looks or what they say because, as we all know, beauty fades and words are just words. It is the actions of people that make them beautiful or ugly.

Look beyond the facade and watch how people act. Watch how they treat others: their spouse, neighbor, waitperson, or an animal. It will show you a lot about that person.

Be Yourself!


Who else would you be but yourself? Well, there are people who take on their mate/partners/movie stars characteristics, looks, mannerisms, etc. In my opinion these people are losing themselves.

What is more unique and beautiful than being you? Nothing! There is no one else in the world like you. You are an individual with your own thoughts and feelings, your own quirks and style.

Like the tulip in this picture, stand out on your own by being yourself because there is no one better!!!

Create a Life!


There are many people out there that look ‘good’ on the outside but are miserable on the inside. They want everything to look perfect yet they aren’t.

I think it is much more important to feel good about yourself. If you don’t feel good about yourself life can be depressing. What waste your time feeling bad? What is it getting you?

It is a new year, work on yourself so you can be beautiful inside and out! It is giving a gift to yourself and how can that be bad?



We have all experienced up and downs in our lives. It is only natural. No one’s life if perfect but advertising and the movies try to suck us in to believe that everyone leads perfect lives.

There are always going to be down, sad, happy, ordinary, routine and mundane days. It is what makes us human. The important thing is to know this and understand that every day we have on this planet is a gift. Life is beautiful, live it to its fullest no matter what kind of day you are having.

Hold on to those days that are amazing, breathe and relax on those days that are not amazing. Rejoice no matter what is happening in your life.

Pretty or Beautiful!


This is SO true! There is a difference between pretty and beautiful.

The definition of pretty is: attractive to look at usually in a simple and delicate way.

The definition of beauty is: the qualities in a person or a thing that give pleasure to the sense or the mind.

I know I would love it if people thought I was beautiful because I shine from the inside out over being pretty. I think it is important to shine over being something pretty. Not saying it is bad to be pretty just think it is more important to shine!

Looks fade but how you shine doesn’t!
