Hooray it's May!
We have a brand spankin' new set of weeks wrapped up in a bow named, May, to live to make it as awesome as we want! Here are some things I think we all need to do this month to make it greater than last month!
#1. GET EXCITED!
This month is a blank set of time, just waiting to be made fabulous by you!
Don't just live for Friday, because we only have 4-5 Fridays a month, and that's an awful lot of days to not be excited about! Make each day great no matter what the name of the day, and no matter if you have school, work or play...each day can be awesome. Start making everyday as fun as a Friday, even if you have piles of work, you be the fun in the middle of the work. A smile, a song, a dance break, can make any job a little better!
QUOTE FOR THE MONTH:
Think excitement, talk excitement, act out excitement, and you will become and excited person. Life will take on a new zest, with deeper interests, greater meaning. You can talk, think, and act yourself into enthusiasm or dullness and into monotony or into happiness. By the same process you can build up inspiration, excitement and a surging depth of joy. - Norman Vincent Peale
You were born a unique individual, with talents, tastes, style, dreams, a voice and personality that is all your own.
Now go out and own it! Be you, and if anyone tries to stop you with their words, you don't listen, refuse to let their words stop the sparkle that's inside you.
#2. Take the Spotlight Back From Your Problems
The problem with problems is they can turn into the star on the stage of our life, if we let them, and soon you won't be able to focus on how happy you can be, because your problems are busy doing backflips and tap dancing all over the stage of your days, getting you to cheer them on with how awful everything is.
* Don't you dare let your problems rule you! Instead you call all your PROBLEMS, CHALLENGES. I learned this from my dad. He said, don't give the challenges in your life the power over you to be called a problem, a problem needs a solution, and sometimes their isn't a solution. But there is always a way to overcome, get through, get stronger, get wiser, become better for not giving up! And sometimes what looks like a problem, is really just a ladder to a new level of success, that you wouldn't stretch out and try, unless you had to move out of your comfort zone, and dare or be pushed to an extreme to try something new or new a way of doing something.
*YOU ARE A CHAMPION, AND CHAMPIONS GET KNOCKED DOWN, BUT THEY ALWAYS GET BACK UP. IF YOU STOP GETTING BACK UP, YOU'VE FORGOTTEN YOU WERE BORN A CHAMPION...SO GET BACK UP AND KEEP GOING!
QUOTE OF THE MONTH:
#3. Hunt For Treasures and Blessings In Your DayEach day passes away and we climb back in bed, just like the night before, but what did you do differently than the night before when you climbed in bed?!? Did you spend your day looking for the small, sparkles of joy, trying to catch your eye, or did you get blinded and mesmerized by a big ugly "problem".
Each day comes wrapped with little treasures in it, sometimes we are so busy being upset, stressed out, or depressed that we don't even notice the treasures.And sometimes the treasure come wrapped inside, what looks like a big old, ugly problem!
*Many businesses were started when someone lost their job, had nothing else, or anything to lose, but to finally try to start their dream business, or go after what they never could when they were busy working away at that job! Always keep an eye out for the blessing that might look like it's wrapped up in a bunch of junk.
#5. Feel the sunshine on your skin, look at the flowers blooming, let yourself get re-charged!
#6. Eat some yummy fresh fruit.
#7. Get a workout in, so your feel fit and fabulous and strong.
#8. Laugh! Watch your favorite funny movie!
You've got an awesome month of May waiting for you, now go out and make it A-MAY-ZING!
Off to go for a run and feel take in some fresh air myself, your friend, Kandee
