Spend Time With Your Family, Get Back To Your Roots #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

Spend time with your family, get back to your roots. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Last week, I went back home.

It had been too long.

While driving the rental car from one relative’s house to the next, I kept the radio off.

The silence was enlightening.

Spending time with my family was enlightening.

I started to feel grounded and loved.

I started to feel the real me coming back into myself.

I started to gain strength.

My family, though, not always close, is how and where I started.

They’ve known me the longest.

They’ve always been there… and that stability is something I’m longing for…

Communicate (Talk) Openly, Clearly, And Directly–It’s Good For Everyone Involved #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

Communicate (talk) openly, clearly, and directly–it’s good for everyone involved. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Fear of hurting the other person…

But I’m learning that being open, clear, and direct is truly the greatest gift we can give–to ourselves and others.

Happy Monday! 💙

Remember, You Can’t Change People, But You CAN Change Yourself #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

And it’s a tough one…

Remember, you can’t change people, but you CAN change yourself. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Sometimes the change WE make is to stop fighting, stop talking in circles, stop wishing things were different… and gently walk away. 💔

Limit Your Time With People Who Drag You Down #WeeklyChallenge

This Weeks Challenge:

Limit your time with people who drag you down. #WeeklyChallenge

As the old saying goes, “misery loves company” but success and happiness loves company too… so pull people up if you can. 😁

From my Novels:

Sometimes we are pulled down without realizing it’s happening until it’s too late… down and miserable. How in the world did that happen? Angie, Christy, Rebecca, Nicole… they all have to find their way back to happiness.
