Get your life out of Park!

Make an investment in yourself!

 

Do you know what Mediocre means?  To live halfway between success and failure.

Don’t settle but live the life that God intended you to have.

Be Bold, live with a louder Wow.

Add spark to your life, get adventurous, and try something new and different.

Don’t get stuck in your age bracket.

Learn something about your body…. You are wonderfully made.

Don’t let your relationships go stale and do not let it rest on your partner to “perk” it up.

Confront things instead of hiding or running away from them.

Stop procrastinating.

Demand the best from yourself instead of settling for average from yourself.

Take care of yourself.

Stop punishing yourself and if you are having a bad day just go do something else, like a walk or drink a cuppa.

Worry less, eliminate stress.

Enjoy every day of your life, lighten up a little bit.

It is all about the Attitude!

Dread is expecting to have an unpleasant experience.

Do everything for and unto the Lord….. Do the dishes for Him, the ironing, the cleaning, the shopping, going to work, etc. (It works as I have done it, do it all with a smile)

Dread is a close relative to Fear and it sucks out all your joy.

Don’t let fear rule.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself….. A pity party is not nice to have and you are the only one having it.

Try to find (look) something good in everything…..play the Glad Game.

Look for the lesson in every trial, however big or small.

Learn something new about yourself.

Do something new to stop your life from being stagnant.

Learning adds excitement to your life.

Learn a new way to respond to old problems.

If we do not grow and learn in our life then it is a wasted life.

Don’t get a “give up” attitude when your problems surround you, find a new way to deal with them.

Don’t let your problems (no matter how hard they get) define you and make you weak.

Make a new friend.

A few rules to live by 

1. Make your bed every day, even if it’s right before you get in it. 

2. Don’t wear holey underwear… in case you’re in an accident and they cut your clothes off. 

3. Travel light through life. Keep only what you need.

4. Put butter on your biscuit/bread, and twice as much when you miss the one you love.

5. It’s okay to cry when you’re hurt. It’s also okay to smash things; but, wash your face, clean your mess, and get up off the floor when you’re done. You don’t belong down there.

6. If you’re going to curse, be clever. If you’re going to curse in public, know your audience.

7. Seek out the people and places that resonate with your soul.

8. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

9. 5-second rule. It’s just dirt. There are worse things in a fast food cheeseburger.

10. Happiness is not a permanent state. Wholeness is. Don’t confuse these.

11. If you’re staying more than one night, unpack your bag.

12. Never walk through an alley (except when you are in Melbourne!)

13. Be less sugar, more spice, and only as nice as you’re able to without compromising yourself.

14. Can’t is a cop-out. 

15. Hold your heroes to a high standard. Be your own hero.

16. If you can’t smile with your eyes, don’t smile. Insincerity is nothing to aspire to.

17. Never lie to yourself.

18. Your body, your rules.

19. If you have an opinion, you better know why.

20. Practice your passions. 

21. Ask for what you want. The worst thing they can say is no. 

22. Wish on stars and dandelions, then get to work to make them happen. 

23. Don’t skimp on good sheets.

24. Fall in love often. Particularly with ideas, art, music, literature, food and far-off places.

25. Fall hard and forever in love with nothing but yourself.

26. Say Please, Thank You, and Pardon Me, whenever the situation warrants it.

27. Reserve “I’m sorry” for when you truly are.

28. Naps are for grown-ups, too.

29. Question everything, except your own intuition. 

30. You have enough. You are enough.

31. You are amazing! Don’t let anyone ever make you feel you are not. If someone does….walk away. You deserve better.

32. No matter where you are, you can always go home.

33. Be happy, say your prayers and remember your roots.

34. Say what you mean and mean what you say.

Don’t forget the sunscre

Don’t let people take advantage of you, learn to say No.

Don’t let the pain that you are in know define you and rule the rest of your life.

When someone makes you angry keep your mouth shut instead of running to someone to gossip about it and prayer for the Lord to bless them.

Keep your faith alive.
snippet
Should you lose your faith, shake that feeling off and start again.

Don’t lose your Joy.

Become a prisoner of Hope so that you will become so full of Hope that something positive will happen, maybe not today or tomorrow but the day will come.

Say every day “Something good is going to happen to me”

No matter what you are going through be a blessing to someone else and you will see what happen.

Look for the tiny miracles that happen every day around you.

Always have a smile for a greeting, you never know that that smile may just be what a person needs.

It won’t hurt to ask somebody how they are doing, even a pure stranger like a cashier, they may just be hurting at that moment.

Give without having expectations of receiving back.

Never give up on love even when it is rejected, just look at giving it to a worthy one.

Don’t let the sun go down on your anger.

Don’t hold a grudge as it is unhealthy for you.

Forgiveness is the key to a better life.

AND MOST OF ALL

Don’t forget to put on your sunscreen when you go out into the sun.

Complaint fasting

Image result for complaint images

How many of us really take note of all the complaining that we do every day, every hour, and every minute of the day.

We complain about the weather….. It is either too hot or too cold, too wet or too dry. We complain about the economy, about our children, about our fellow neighbours, the car is too dirty, tired of cleaning the house, after the children, after the pets…… The list can go on and on and on.

We even complain about ourselves….. We are to fat, too thin, to old, to young, to grey, to stupid, to eager….. Etc.

Maybe you should do a complaint fasting….. You know, when you feel a complaint edging towards your mouth or thought put a halt to it. Stop the complaints and rather try and turn the complaint into a blessing or a turnabout…. Turn the complaint into something good instead.

Try to find the good instead of the negative. Try it for a week and see what happens in your life. You will find yourself more positive, smiling more and generally you will have a more “feel good” experience of life.

As the old saying goes…….Life is too short. Less complaining is good, more positive vibes need to go out into the Universe. Let it bounce off you onto the next person….. Cause a ripple effect into the world around you.

So I am laying down a challenge to you out there, especially to the avid complainers……… Try the complaint fasting for a week and let me know how it went.

I am going to do it…….
