Doggone It, People Like Me!

Image
  What a fun book! I just stumbled upon the book " I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!: Daily Affirmations " by Stuart Smalley and I LOVE the title alone!!! Check out the book description: The ultimate meditation book, not to be grandiose... Take a hilarious, healing journey with Stuart Smalley as he careens down the road to Recovery.  For one entire year Stuart recorded an affirmation a day...except when he had taken to his bed (but that's Okay)...and the result is the most entertaining and indispensable meditation book ever. From program wisdom (Denial Ain't Just a River in Egypt!  December 1) to survival tips (When I Go Home to Visit My Family I Will Stay in a Motel! September 26) to some good sound practical advice (I am entitled to file for an Extension on my Income Taxes!  April 15th), Stuart's affirmations will empower you! Work, Friendship, Love, Spirituality, Codependency, Self-Esteem, Acceptance...

Don't Need No Rocking Chair!

Image
  "Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but it doesn't get you anywhere." True story! All worry does is make you feel bad and work you up for no reason. I've definitely been guilty of worrying and it just leads to bad thoughts and actually has caused trouble in the past. Let it go. Feel positive and positive things will happen. Like the image above?

Only Positive Attitudes

  You know those signs at bars that say "No Alcohol Beyond This Point"? I wish I had this one at my house on my front door so that any one that wanted to enter would know that only positive attitudes are allowed in my living space. There is nothing worse than negativity in the space you live because that is where we go to escape the world and the world is negative enough so I declare my home a positive only zone!!!

Stepping Stones

Image
  Have you ever heard the country music song by Lari White? It's called Stepping Stone. Welp, if you have never heard it, that's fine...My favorite part of the song is the chorus: This ain't no stumbling block It's just a stepping stone I'm gonna climb right up on top And take a good look at where I'm going And it ain't gonna slow me down Hold me back or turn me around (Stepping Stone) This ain't no stumbling block (Stepping Stone) It ain't no stumbling block (Stepping Stone) This ain't no stumbling block It's just a stepping stone Brilliant! Don't let things get in your way of your dreams. They aren't going to trip you up unless you let them. Pick your self back up and use that block that tripped you as a stepping stone to the next step and keep going until you reach what you want! Like the image above? Purchase the image HERE .

Stop Waiting!

Image
  Stop Waiting for Things to Happen - Go Out and Make Them Happen Personally, this is something I've been struggling with for 10 years! Yep, 10 years. Not a typo...I have been wishing and hoping for soooooooo long but when you don't add action to those wishes and hopes NOTHING will happen. Now, I'm not saying to stop believing in the Law of Attraction. What I'm saying is sitting in a corner praying for things to arrive isn't the way to live your life. You still have to move forward. Motion yields things actually coming to you. Although you still shouldn't focus on the "HOW" for the things you desire to come to you, at least realizing what you want and doing SOMETHING towards it can attract those things into your life.  Walking out of your home and doing SOMETHING allows the universe to see you are ready for action and you are ready for it to show you the "HOW". Hope this makes sense. Basically if you at least start on a journey you ha

It Was Never Between You and Them Anyway

Image
  People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.  Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.  Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.  Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.  Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.  Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.  Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten.  Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.  Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway. -this version is credited to Mother Teresa  Like the image above? Purchase the image HERE .

Dare to Do Mighty Things

Image
  #quotes  "Far better it is to dare mighty things, than to take rank with those poor timid spirits who know neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt To me this quote simply says rather than listen to what people think, do what you want. Many times people give advice on things they have never even tried (at least in my life anyway). Dare to do mighty things regardless of the opinions of others. You never know if YOU can succeed until you at least try! Like the image above? Purchase the image HERE .

Watch Your Thoughts

  I LOVE this! Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. How awesome is that?!? If that doesn't make you think twice about your way of thinking, I don't know what will! Like the image above?

20 Instructions for Life

Image
Although in the year 200 this was widely touted as a list of 20 instructions for life written by the Dalai Lama, in truth it is a collection of ideas from the Life's Little Instruction Book . Regardless of where it originated, these instructions are worth reading and taking to heart. Enjoy! 1.Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk. 2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson. 3. Follow the three R’s: -  Respect for self, -  Respect for others and -  Responsibility for all your actions. 4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. 5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly. 6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great relationship. 7. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. 8. Spend some time alone every day. 9. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values. 10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. 11.

The Prosperity Game Days 135-365

Image
I know that I'm far from the end of this game. The last day of the Prosperity Game is actually Monday, January, 27, 2014. However, I want to focus more on writing other things and have realized I'm going to continue missing posts, so here's how the rest of the money would be spent for the rest of the year... The total income received for the rest of the year for days 135 through 365 is $57,750,000. That's a crap ton of money!!!! No one I know needs that much money. What I foresee for the rest of the days is the following.... - My husband and I have already put aside $2 million to live off of in savings bonds. - My husband and I also purchased real estate on days 100-120 condos and small homes to rent out for investment purposes. So we can make additional money in case we want to have extra income to play with. - We will purchase a total of $2 million in savings bonds for my mom, my dad, my father-in-law, my sister, my sister-in-law and for the possible two ki

What I've Learned from the Prosperity Game

Image
  I've once again been lacking on posting the days expenses of the Prosperity Game . I think I have figured out why. I'm only missing one thing to be at my optimal level of happiness and that is enough money to pay my bills and travel more. Throughout this game the main thing that has hit home for me is that my main goal is to have $2 million in the bank ($1 million for me and $1 million for my husband) and live off the interest for the rest of our lives. Anything beyond that would most likely be used for family and friends until he and I decide to have children. That is the only time I can foresee the need to increase that number. With my bank offering 4% interest, we would make $80,000 per year in interest. After taxes at least $56,000 per year and for my husband and I we have determined that is plenty to live out our dreams. Sure, there may be some years we want to spend more than that amount, but that is when we would do things to make extra income to be able to do the
