Pushing Ourselves!

Pushing ourselves

When was the last time you pushed yourself? I know I have recently had some knee issues which has made going on my daily walks hard but I have found if I listen to my body, I can go for a walk and push through some of the knee pain. My knee is getting stronger every day because of it.

That is just a simple example but there are many ways we can push ourselves to find out what really lies in the outer reaches of our abilities.

Push yourself. You won’t regret it!




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!



We all need to have hope, for what would the world be if we didn’t?

Being hopeful helps us to know that the future can be brighter and that we have had a role in making it happen. Being hopeful can give us strength to get through hard times, knowing that they will end.  Being hopeful can give strength to someone else.

You have a role, in this world, to be hopeful!



I know when my phone or computer are acting up I turn them off and let them ‘reboot.’ Not a bad idea for us humans too.

Sometimes we just get too much information or have too much going on. That is the time to unplug, reboot and take some time to yourself which is NEVER a bad thing.

So when you are feeling overwhelmed, turn off your phone, computer or whatever you are doing. Find a quiet place and just sit and enjoy!


First Time!

First time

This is a good one.

We all seem to get complacent in our lives. We have the same routine every day. Why not stir it up? Why not do something different? Do something you have never done before.

What comes to mind for me is when I ‘tried’ to learn to ride a motorcycle. Found out it wasn’t my thing but at least I tried! What have you done?




This is a big question. I know all of us have something that we are afraid of.

Some people are afraid to fly, afraid of heights, public speaking, life, death, or what people think of them. The list could go on and on.

Sometimes fear is caused by anxiety, undesirable outcome or consequences. But if you weren’t afraid, what would you do?
