Gracefully Accept When Things Don’t Go Your Way #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

This Week’s Challenge:

Gracefully accept when things don’t go your way. #WeeklyChallenge #MondayMotivation

Tomorrow night, 50% of us will be disappointed.

But let’s keep in mind how lucky we are to live in this great country.

We can disagree, but we are all still Americans, and we all have the right to our opinions and beliefs.

I may disagree with half the population, but I know we are all equally blessed and free.

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

I’m guilty of not being clear and direct.

Fear of not wanting to come across a certain way…

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! 💙

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.

Get Social. Make Plans with Somebody this Week.

Today’s Challenge: Get social. Make plans with somebody this week and get out of the routine. Shake things up. Have a little fun! 🙂

Gosh, I’m going through so many crazy changes… Some I’m excited about, some make me sad, but it’s what this amazing life is all about. During these times of change I know how easy it is to isolate–I’ve done it. I usually use the excuse that I’m too busy with writing and work to make time with friends. But in truth, sometimes I just want to be alone. Being an introvert, time alone is how I recharge my batteries. But I can see that too much time alone can also drain energy and happiness. Finding that balance is key. So if it’s been awhile since you called a friend to have coffee or lunch, maybe it’s time to reach out. Your friend just might need a friend, too. 🙂
