Just Laugh….

I have never been a competitive person, I do my best to not only finish what I started, and to do my best at whatever it is I am doing.

I sent out a friendly challenge to family and friends (whom I thought wanted to improve their health by losing a few extra unwanted pounds)and challenged them to be more motivated. 

I kept things simple by going for a walk, light dancing , and even posting a few exercise videos. I got replies like: “Are you really doing everything you are posting?” “Why are you posting this?”

Needless to say, I stopped posting for a while. Then I realized who I was and started posting once again. I am doing this for myself and I don’t need anyone else’s approval.

I then challenged myself to keep on being the person I want to be:

  • I am Loved.
  • I believe in myself.
  • I am someone Special…
  • I will continue to be me…
  • I have Faith and Know where I stand…
  • I can do more than what people think I can do.
  • I will NOT let anyone STOP me from being a better me…………

When it’s all said and done, how can you Not Laugh, because you are LIVING YOUR LIFE THE BEST AS YOU CAN. Those who do see that or don’t want you to see it are frowning every time their unwanted words are NOT being acknowledged.


One More Cup of Water….

I have never been the one who likes to drink water. I know it’s good for me, but I still have to figure out more creative ways to drink it. Hot or cold, inside and outside of your body, we all need water.

I have started adding pineapples to my water with something with ginger or cucumbers. I read about adding cilantro as well. I haven’t tried this yet, but I can’t wait to see if it tastes as good as the other two.

I know this may sound a little crazy, but drinking hot water is actually good as well. I can actually sip on it as I read and drink a full cup. Well, if I am not thinking too hard about it.

I will continue to look for better ways to drink more water as well as drink what I need to be a better me. This love and hate for water will NOT stop me from drinking it.  I am still looking for better ways to drink more water:

Just one cup at a time…..

Still Being Creative….

I once said, “Every stitch counts,” and now I am going to reuse my own words. I enjoy crocheting and reading. I usually have one or both items in my bag. On a short trip, one stitch is better than no stitch at all or reading the start of a good story makes one look forward to fully reading the book. 

It took me a moment, but I finally finished that king size blanket. I meant to take a picture, but was so happy I was done. I just wanted to give it to its owner and out of my sight. I do have a picture of it as I worked on it.

I will get back to writing and creating. I was editing my book, because I thought I was ready to set it free. I want a more positive outlook and I am having second thoughts on my book. The real problem is, I have a second book I have been going over and over in my mind, and I just stopped writing altogether. 

I will continue to edit my first book, and stay creative. It’s 6am here and it’s time to actually start my day and have a cup of coffee…..

A Short List..

I Will lose this weight.

I Will Never get a Needle in my knee again.

I will find a better job. 

I said it, I believe it, and it’s already done ..

I believe words are powerful. They have the ability to hurt or to encourage, so be careful of what you say..

Job Hunting ~ My Way…

Photo by fauxels on Pexels.com

I got up today with a plan to not just look for a job,

 but look for the right job. The things I have done before, 

 just aren’t good enough today, and I know the meaning of  

“Live and Learn ” is more than just words.

The last time I was out of work,

I would apply for everything I thought I could do.

I would go to every mall and surrounding areas asking,

“Are you hiring,” And was told

I could either fill out an application in the store or online.

If I was lucky to get an interview, yeah, and hope for the best.

I would accept any job, because I knew I needed to work.

I do NEED a job, but I want to be happy.

I may be pushing that ‘feeling,’ but I am hopeful.

I am going all out on looking for companies that I want to work at 

and NOT work just to be working.

I spent five and a half hours today doing just that.

I came across a GOOD home base job,

but I cannot type 25 wpm (NOW)

I know what I can do,

how I can improve what I already know,

 and get the job where I want to be.

Its time to get back to

My Job Hunt.

Bye IV Now, LD*
