#Thank You for the #Support

I wanted to thank everybody for their support and encouragement… meant the world to me. ❤

I’m doing great and so happy I had the surgery. I already feel better. 🙂

A few days after surgery, I felt great and over did it. They tell you to take it easy for 2 weeks for a reason. LOL. I learned my lesson. 🙂

I’m on my second week of recovery, and I’m now taking the doctor’s orders very seriously. I do not want problems–I want to heal right the first time.

I’m slowly getting back to my life and I’m excited. I have big plans!

Thanks again for all the support. ❤ ❤ ❤



Focus on Your Good Qualities


Today’s Challenge: Focus on your good qualities.

Change your negative self-talk into positive self-talk. If you’re tempted to put yourself down, turn it around and pick yourself up instead. This will help you see the good in other people, too. 🙂 We all win when we stay positive… and it starts with how we feel about ourselves.

Stand for Something, or You’ll Fall for Everything

Fighting Back Boxer

Today’s Challenge: Stand for something, or you’ll fall for everything.

Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in. Don’t let others sway you into being them. Stand tall and be proud of who you are and how you feel. It takes strength to be different and disagree. The more we know ourselves and the better our self-worth, the easier it is to stand up for our truth.



When #People Around You Are Driving You #Crazy…


Today’s Challenge: When people around you are driving you crazy, step away and get some alone time. 🙂


I’ve had to ignore phone calls. I’ve had to avoid people. I’ve even had to close my blinds and lock myself in my home alone, just to catch my breath. LOL 🙂

It’s so nice to step away once in a while… refreshing.

Make a #List of the Things You Like to Do for #Fun


Today’s Challenge: Make a list of the things you like to do for fun… then pick one and do it this weekend! 🙂

I pulled an all-nighter Wednesday night. Thursday morning, I was somewhat delirious from lack of sleep. But a funny thing happened…

I tapped into things I had forgotten about myself.

I’m not sure if the sleeplessness brought me back to my twenties when I pulled all-nighters of partying, drinking, and having fun, but I was overwhelmed by the fact that these days, I had neglected fun in my life.

Heading home from the airport, I mentally made a list of what I enjoy. It started off a little slow with museums and art galleries. Traveling was next on my list. Then came the realization that I like to take part in activities. I don’t like to sit and watch somebody else moving–I want to move. I’d rather go for a walk and talk with a friend than have lunch and talk. I’d rather swim or play catch at the beach than lay in the sun. I want to go bowling, swimming, indoor skydiving, almost anything that is active (within reason, I’m not into extreme, dangerous stuff) 🙂 I’m also the type of person that wants to try everything once. I want to do and see everything!  I’ve traveled a lot in my life, but I have no interest in going back to any of the places I’ve been–I’d rather go to new places I haven’t seen yet. 🙂

Strange how a lack of sleep caused an awakening in me! 🙂 This weekend I’m going to do something I enjoy–something true to who I am. 🙂

What are you going to do this weekend?
