Open Your Eyes to the Blessings in Your Life

There’s probably not a day that goes by that we don’t complain about something. It could be about stress from work, a fight with a friend or something simple like having no cell reception. But every now and then we really need to think about our lives and realize that our circumstances are probably not as bad as we think. Many times our complaints are things that some people only wish they could experience.

A Little Bit of Childhood in the Garden

When I was younger I used to play with a collection of dolls that represented different countries. I asked my mom the other day what ever happened to them, but she said she wasn’t sure where they went. So, we were cleaning out the garage and in one of the boxes we found them all. I was so excited and decided to do a little photo-shoot with them. I got the idea from a blog I visit every now and then called Quimpy Hittys. I don’t know much about the author, but it is a blog that shows their wooden doll collection in random places (climbing trees, holding berries, on a bridge, etc.). It is really cute and so I thought I’d do something similar for this post. I not only find my childhood dolls cute, but it reminds me of the memories I had when I was younger and all the fun I would have.

Attack Your Goals Like a Puzzle: One Piece at a Time

What are your goals? Well, that is a pretty general question. There are all sorts of goals you can have. You can have health goals, spiritual goals,  goals for your career, relationships, finances, or education.  We all have goals we want to achieve, but the problem is, many of us don’t try hard enough to reach them. Maybe it’s because we don’t know where to start or lose motivation when we don’t see results. The reasons we continue to give up or procrastinate are endless, but we shouldn’t lose hope. I think the key to achieving our goals is to break them down and be consistent in our effort to reach success little by little. We sometimes get so caught up in the end result that we forget the small steps we need to take first.

Light Up Lives With Positive Encouragement

You know the saying misery loves company? Well, misery isn’t the only one, trouble loves it too. If you are going to do something “bad” or cause some sort of chaos, you never want to do it alone, right? You always need a partner in crime to go down with you.  It is as if we feel that as long as someone else is doing it with us, we won’t feel as guilty. But really all we are doing is encouraging others to do wrong.

I love watching and taking pictures of birds. They are so beautiful to watch, and we can learn a thing or two from the birds. I have plenty of pictures to share, but for now I will add just a few.
