Use your obstacles as stepping stones.

Monday, April 29, 2013



We all encounter obstacles at one time or another. It's just a fact of life. What do you do when you are confronted with one? Do you quit? I hope not!! Your determination will help you find a way over, around or through that obstacle.

Sometimes, you just have to have a little faith -- faith in yourself, faith in the realization that you can do it & faith that God can help you.



Sometimes, you might need to take a detour around the obstacle.



Just do what works for you.

Use those obstacles as stepping stones for later -- you'll need them. Use them as lessons learned. Most importantly, hang in there!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

We are what we believe we are.

Sunday, April 28, 2013



What do you believe about yourself? Do you believe you are weak? Do you believe you are strong? Whatever it is you believe, you are right!

By the same token, whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right!!



I choose to think positive things about myself. That gets me so much farther in life.



Today's challenge: Only positive self-talk to yourself.

Blessing to you!! emoticon emoticon

I'm back from vacation!

Saturday, April 27, 2013



We came back today from Virginia Beach. Our first few days there were cold, windy & rainy, but as I always say: A bad day on vacation is better than a good day at work. emoticon It was nice to sleep in & not have to go to work.

I'm telling you there were some CRAZY people out there in that cold, cold water swimming, surfing, on their jet-skis or wave runners & parasailing. A good number of them didn't have on wet suits either. Brrrrrrr!! I stuck my feet in the water but that's about it. Too cold for me!!

The latter part of the vacation was much warmer. We took the convertible & were able to ride around with the top down so I got in some Vitamin D. emoticon

We did a few things we don't normally do: go bowling & play miniature golf. That was fun. We also walked up & down the boardwalk one day.

I'm glad I have another day to get back into the swing of things before I go back to work on Monday.

I hope you all are well.

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

Sounds like you had a soothing, relaxing time away there - especially catching those vitamin-D infused rays in the convertible! Good that you'll have some time to reacclimate before Monday.

Do you have a sense of humor?

Saturday, April 20, 2013



I love to laugh. It's one of my favorite things to do. Proverbs 17:22a (NLT) says: A cheerful heart is good medicine. When I'm laughing, I'm cheerful! emoticon If it's good medicine & it's free, then I want it! emoticon

So, I have some funnies for you today. I hope you enjoy them.

See, I told you that you are beautiful!!

Friday, April 19, 2013



Your true colors are beautiful like a rainbow. (From the song, True Colors, by Cyndi Lauper).

When I was growing up, I had a wonderful youth leader at church who used to always say, "God don't make no junk!" ~ Anna M. ~ I've never really felt I was beautiful, but I've never really been all that down on myself except for my weight. Maybe it was because she said that to us so often & I really grew to believe it.

My sister sent me this video in my email this morning. It's just over 4 minutes long. If you have the time, please watch it.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ai4sTZFRNoU

If you can't watch it, I'll just give a brief explanation here. Dove (the soap company) hired a sketch artist to do sketches of women as they see themselves & then as others see them. He did these sketches from the comments alone -- without seeing the person he was sketching -- they were situated behind a screen. The women were very critical of themselves & their faces often looked misshapen, "pinched" and unhappy in the first sketch. Each of these women met one person who was also asked to describe her features to the sketch artist. This second sketch turned out to be so beautiful & was a true rendering of their features as the other person saw them. One woman cried when she saw the sketch the artist had done from the comments of the other person she had met.

We tend to be so critical of ourselves. We need to just stop it. emoticon God don't make no junk.



Today, go look in the mirror & observe your features. I know you are beautiful & unique. There are no two of us exactly alike -- not even twins. Tell your image in the mirror that you are beautiful. Make note of what you like about your face.

For me, I have beautiful bright green eyes that light up when I smile or laugh. I have a cute little nose that fits so perfectly on my face. I have a crooked little smile that is just so adorable.

Please reply & tell me what you love about your face. I can't wait to hear from you!!

Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Wow--that video really nailed it! While introspection and honest self evaluation is good, our self esteem should not be based on our looks. We women (and possibly men too, but I wouldn't know) tend to look at the mirror with super-critical eyes. We are only looking at the image and all the tiny pieces that contribute to it; whereas, others combine the personality with the features and see much more than we do.

Thanks for the link. I enjoyed watching it.

I am beautiful. A powerful statement.
I love my smile and a love my brown eyes. You are absolutely right, some days i look in the mirror and i'm surprised that I'm pretty...and on those days i go out more confident, more open....and on those days other people seem easy to smile at me or even engage in talking. I'll try remember to stop it when I'm critical of myself. emoticon

    When I look in the mirror, what I love most about my face is that it's mine. It's honest and sympathetic and (usually) kind. Thanks for the reminder to reinforce the good! :)

    Thanks for sharing. I watched that video. People often don't see themselves, physically or nonphysically as others see them. Often we laser focus on things others don't see as a bad thing.

Have a great weekend!

    I love my cheek bones, my eyes (even hidden behind glasses), and my smile. I wish my teeth were better--but not enough to get braces again at my age!

  I had heard about this ad and finally watched it today. Some people have criticized it for focusing on appearance, but I think it's true that most of us women think of ourselves as less attractive than others find us. I also suspect that the same is often true of how we look at our inner selves; we underestimate the beauty and strength of our character and our abilities.

    Sorry but I can't find anything that I love about my face. Babies and toddlers run screaming when I come into the room. I do love my mind and brain. God was good to me in that department.

    There was someone in our town a while back who used "You are beautiful!" post-it notes on public restroom mirrors and I library books. I'm betting that ALL the ladies that found them smiled and probably passed them on... It was a very good thing:)

    I like parts of the dove commercial, but it still seems to emphasize that women are only worth something based on their beauty, and this is problematic.

  I LOVE the dove video---if only we could see in ourselves what other people see in us. I think there would be much happier people in the world. My best facial feature would have to be my big dark brown eyes which are very expressive. GREAT BLOG!
