Gloomy days

Hey great people! Happy Thursday to you!

Here in NY it is rainy and gloomy. I don’t know about you but when the weather is like this, I just want to cuddle in a blanket. I also notice that it can affect my mood too. I gain my energy from the sun and it makes me feel good. 

Isn’t that how life can be? We have those grey skies and it seems like nothing can go right. However, just when we thought we would be doomed, the sun comes out. 

Peace, overcomes us. We begin to feel a sense of comfort. I know the time frame between the gloomy days and sunny ones aren’t easy but the results are  worth it. Please hang in there friends. It will get better, don’t give up!

Thanks for reading,

Motivational Monday’s: try to make someone smile


Hello beautiful people!

When I saw this post on Pinterest, it made so much sense to me especially after recent events. On yesterday, a friend invited us to the Tampa Bay Buccanneers vs Philadelphia Eagles football game. I was over the moon happy because the Bucs are my husband and I favorite NFL team! Not only was the game a success but my husband, bestfriend, her fiancé and myself were able to laugh and smile. 

I was so thankful to be surrounded by wonderful people. Even though there are storms in our lives right now, a little sunshine did peek through on yesterday. All I could think to myself is how others may need someone to make them smile. 

If you are able, try doing something that could put a smile on someone’s face. Possibly a good day greeting, treating a stranger to coffee, perhaps just a hello with a smile might do the trick. You never know what your kind gesture could do to someone’s life, you might make a difference.

Feel good Friday’s: leave your worries behind

Happy Friday all!

So today I’m getting my 5th Tysabri (MS med.) infusion and I’m listening to Heatwave’s “groove line” song. Not only does this song make me want to get up and dance but the lyrics, “leave your worries behind” sticks out to me. 

We all are going through so much and we worry and stress over many things. How many of us actually just throw our hands up and say “oh well” and put a smile on our face? In fact I remember as child being in dance school, the choreographers would tell us “no matter what happens, don’t stop, the show goes on”. I think we all need to practice this way of thinking. The reality is there are something things that are out of our control and we aren’t perfect. So we don’t always have to fix everything and then get bummed out because we didn’t succeed. 

Take the time to breathe and enjoy all the goodness that is around you. Concentrating on things you can’t change is draining. So try to find some joy and “leave your worries behind”.
