Motivational Monday………

Yup….still raining, I need all the motivation I can get!!  It’s suppose to rain all week…..oh yeah!!!!

I could look at it that way or I could look at it as, well I guess I will be getting alot of work done, so that when the sun does finally come out, I can hit the beach and enjoy it!!!

See, it doesn’t matter what is going on around us, chaos, bad weather, moody teens, miserable clerks, grumpy friends, it’s what is going on inside of us that matters. Yes I want it to be nice out, but there is no sense it fighting it out with Mother Nature…..she will win……I can only worry about how I feel or what am I going to do different today to make things better for tomorrow.

I got an email from Matt Morris with his video for a Motivational Monday, you might enjoy that, or watch Elements of Greatness, or Les Brown on Motivation or any other YouTube video that would be good.
You could also throw on some music and dance around the house or sing like no one’s watching or listening, just belt it out or work up a sweat…….if that doesn’t help, get naked and jump up in down in front of the mirror……well maybe not, I thought that it might make you laugh but it could do just the opposite and make you even more depressed!!!!
Find whatever works for you and have an awesome Motivational Monday!!!

How You Feel……..

How You Feel is Everything!!!

I must say right now, that after more than a week of grey, cold and rain, well…..the moods could be better around here.
Heck, last Monday the sun did come out for a couple fo hours and it felt amazing, but I can count on one hand how many sunny days we’ve had this month and I probably have some fingers left over!!!

I think of Ontario right now, after my sister called this morning saying they opened their pool and have been sitting around it the past few days, ‘it’s so hot’……yeah whatever. Then I think of Calgary…….and I feel better immediately, they just got dumped with snow, rain I will put up with!!!!

I got to thinking about what I used to do when my kids were little, like 2 and 3 years old. We were living in Banff at the time and when  we would have one of those cold snaps, you know, minus 30 and above for a few weeks…….what did I do to entertain the kids as you can’t go outside in that weather for very long!

I remembered that I used to get them in their bathing suits, kids love that, spread blankets over the living room floor that were white, to create  more of a sand like feeling, put around a few lamps and turn them on so they had to put their sunglasses on, get out  some  beach like toys and they would have a blast pretending their were at the beach.

So…….it got me thinking, why can’t I do that??? Why not move the lounge chair in the living room, get into my bathing suit (oh maybe not such a good idea after winter!!) turn on the sun lamps, a little fan, some background music of breeze,
waves splashing and maybe some birds.

Ahhhh, I feel better already thinking about it.

Hey, and I can get Ken to be my cerveza boy!!!

Now I think I’m really starting to feeling great!!!!

Ever feel Stuck????

Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling like it’s ‘Ground Hog Day’? You know, that movie with Bill Murray!!
Like it’s the same day, all over again!!
Like….’what the hell is it all about anyways?’ as you lie in bed waking up.

I got an email update from a site I belong to titled ‘Feeling Stuck??’……..coincidence???
This related to business though.

I watched the short video, it says to reve things up when you’re feeling stuck………whatever.
I could tap on it, but don’t.

I start surfing the net, and find things to look at and read, the I realized, I really just needed to change my state, cause now I felt inspired and motivated and like it wasn’t ground hog day any more!!

It’s about changing your state, do something for yourself that makes you feel good.
Here’s a little video that just might break a smile. Just ignore the Becal commercial at the end!!

Now do you feel stuck??!!

Food for Thought

Just a few simple suggestions for anyone new who wants to start eating healthier and what to look for when shopping!!

Health Food Store vs a Pharmacy Store

I like Mike Adam’s post from Natural here as I couldn’t agree more and I couldn’t have said it any better.

You get one body, why not take care of it the best you can. Too expensive?? Not enough time?  Really??  Do you feel as good as you can or would like too?  For me, I think that is way more expensive, and not just in monetary terms.

Think about it for a minute, you only have one body, why not feed it the best at least most of the time?
