Motivational Monday: Keep Positivity on Your Side

A reblog from Genki Kitty’s blog, to share this thoughtful and inspiring post.

I hope it adds a smile to your day. 🙂

Keep positive to get things in life

There are times in our lives when we feel down and against the world.  Whether it be a gain in weight while on a diet, fitness goals unmet, problems with a relationship or even problems with our career, you will have times in your life when things aren’t perfect.  So what is a person to do when everything seems to be falling out of place and nothing seems to be helping out of the hole of despair?  Well, as a Christian I want to say follow up with more prayers and give thanksgiving for all the blessings we have in life.  Additionally I want to add to stay positive in the lack of light in your life right now.  Take a breath, walk away for a few moments (or longer if necessary) and look towards it in a different light.  Keep positive in the times of darkness and you will…

An Inspiring Quote for the Weekend :-)

wellness thoughts

The mind-body connection is so powerful. 🙂

And sadly, that power is often forgotten when it is needed most.

I always try to dwell on good thoughts these days; focusing on what’s positive, throughout each day.

I also strive to let go of the petty annoyances that come up; in the big picture, they really mean little or nothing at all. 

That kind of positive energy and thought pattern can also have a profound effect on how we are feeling and on our overall health. I know personally just how well this works.

I’ve “been there” when it comes to talking about and dwelling on every little ache and pain and my larger health concerns too, over the years. I know now without any doubt, that dwelling on health and wellness at all times DOES impact reality in significant ways, if we stick with it. 

If you haven’t already, try it! You will be amazed by the power of your subconscious mind if you let it work its wonders.

The body/mind connection. It works for or against us, every day. The choice is ours.

Have a Happy and Healthy Weekend! 🙂


Word of the Week: Wisdom

grey owl

When it comes to our animal pals, owls have always been thought of as a symbol of wisdom. 🙂

Here are a couple of reasons why owls are considered wise, from Yahoo answers:

-Back in the old days when people paid attention to such things, they noticed that owls stay quiet, keep their eyes open and strike quickly.

-Owls were sacred to Minerva, the Greek goddess of wisdom (among other things) so that her reputation rubbed off on them.

This gorgeous grey owl photo is one that I have on a note card I purchased a while back, from:

Tammie at Spirithelpers 

(click to see the card and visit her lovely Etsy photographic shop)

I am just enchanted by this photographI hope you enjoy it too.

We can learn a lot from birds and other animals, can’t we? 

Here’s to a week filled with wisdom and wonder! 🙂



Word of the Week: Perception

path photo black and white

From a distance, a “time out” from our usual routine thoughts… what do we perceive?

“Perception appears to be automatic, but in fact it is a learned phenomenon. The world you live in including the experience of your body, is completely dictated by how you learned to perceive it. If you can change your perception, you change the experience of your body and your world.”

from the book:

Ageless Body. Timeless Mind by Deepak Chopra

What a hopeful and inspiring message this is.

I read this book several years ago; it’s one that I can highly recommend. 🙂

Written many years ago, but the insights and wisdom of this author still ring true. 

Have a Wonderful and Insightful Week!


Word of the Week: Grace

July 1, 11 Nelson park pics 017

“Grace is the effortless flow of existence; love and favor freely bestowed on us.

That comes when we are living in harmony with life, when the rhythms of your body-mind are in synch with nature’s rhythms.

To live in grace is to experience that state of consciousness where things flow and your desires are easily fulfilled. Grace is magical, synchronistic, coincidental, joyful. It’s the good-luck factor.”

from the book:

Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra


When I first read this passage, it rang so true, for me. I stopped and read it over, again and again.

If I could have just one wish come true, it would be to find and continue to live in a state of grace, as described here.

This truly sums up the desires and wishes of my heart.It sounds like pure bliss, doesn’t it?


PS: I’m resurrecting my: Word of the Week, post category and will be sharing a new word each week that I hope will be an inspiration to you. Some new, some from the MPP archives and some from one of my previous blogs: Take a Happy Break, that is no longer active. 

I find it helpful to have a particular word/phrase to contemplate, throughout a week, I hope you will too. 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful week, filled with grace.


Morning Blessing

What a lovely photo and poem, especially to start the day.

And what a visual and inspiring “treat” this was to see in my WP reader today. Thanks Lauren. 🙂

Wishing you a wonderful day!

slowly emerging
over the hilltop with warmth
blue skies awaiting
my soul is reborn, following
a new bouncing ray of hope
