“The world does not require so much to be informed as to be reminded”-Hannah More

What has been will be again,

what has been done will be done again;

there is nothing new under the sun.

“Look! This is something new?”

It was here already long ago;

it was here before our time.

-Ecclesiastes I:9-10

LANGUAGESo as I mentioned before, my life recently has been a whirlwind of working from home, working to build my personal empire, as well as that of my family, figuring out things about my life and self that I didn’t even know I was confused about, and on top of it all being a 24/7 mommy. In the midst of the “hectic-ness” that is my life, I am also attempting to read several books, one of which is ‘POSITIVE WORDS, POWERFUL RESULTS: SIMPLE WAYS TO HONOR, AFFIRM, AND CELEBRATE LIFE’ by Hal Urban. I have been taught over the last couple of years the power that not only feelings, but actual words can have over life, situation(s), and overall well-being, but I never truly grasped it until I began reading this book (I’ll provide a link at the end of this post for anyone who may be interested).ย Although I thought I had a fairly good idea on the impact that my words have now, and have had in the past, the words within the pages of this book made me realized otherwise.WORDS

The purpose of this post was not meant to be lengthy, or intellectually deep, but, as my title says, I just wanted to remind everyone out there of the power that your words, both positive and negative, can have on not only your life, but the lives of others as well. With all the harshness that is already in our world, do a kindness…spread some positivity and happiness to others, including yourself. Share a compliment, tell yourself that you’re beautiful…that you’re awesome. I don’t really think that’s something that we do enough…Lord knows I don’t..so enjoy your Saturday, and remember that everyday we have the COMPLETE choice to be happy and share that happiness with others ๐Ÿ™‚

A Pinch of You-Inspired by The Daily Postimages (2)

In my previous post I participated in a Weekly Writing Challenge via The Daily Post and I must admit that I now have become addicted. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have discovered numerous topics that caught my attention, and of course I just HAD to bookmark a few to write about later on. First, and foremost, I have to give credit where credit is due, the inspiration that I have gained thus far from The Daily Post has made me look at myself more in-depth than ever before. It has allowed me and given me the courage to ask myself the hard questions, which is what led me to write this particular post.

Each and every one of us is made up of our own special “ingredients”…the things that are specific only to us and make us who we are, all of our quirks, antics, and oddities. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Now here’s the recipe me for my yummy goodness!

Main Dish:

2 cups dreamer
3 cups achiever
1 cup fitness freak
2 cups wine lover
3/4 cups traveler
1/2 cup OCD
1/4 tablespoon procrastinator
1/4 teaspoon insecure
a pinch of sarcasm
salt and pepper to taste

To Garnish:

4 tattoos
One pair of sexy specs

Instructions:

Mix all ingredients in an over-sized Jacuzzi tub, add the wine last, and stir briskly. Let marinate overnight. Serve on a bed of wisdom.

And that’s it folks! Me in a nutshell! What about you all?? Think about your own recipe! I would love to hear about them! Be blessed everyone ๐Ÿ™‚
