Becoming the best version of yourself

So How Are Those Resolutions Coming Along??

https://www.buzzfeed.com/jemimaskelley/tiny-changes

Had to squeeze in another post for the first month of a new year!!  My sweet friend and constant promoter/follower CS sent this one to me.  Thank you ma’am!!  I really enjoyed reading all the suggestions for “tiny changes”, and even clicked on some of the links within this link.

I’ve been trying to add some of them to my day because I am determined that this is the year of feeling “Positive”!  Moreover, I’ve even taken to sharing posts on Facebook on Fridays with the hashtag:

#FeelGoodFriday

Can you see the thread in my 2018 Blog posts so far?

When I share with people about my book, and my blog, they often mistake what it’s all about.   They have no interest in reading it, or following it, especially if they’re happily married or have no divorce plans in their future.  At first the lack of support really hurt my feelings, after all, I would certainly go buy a copy of a book if a friend wrote one – regardless of the content.

Yes, the book is definitely related to surviving divorce.  More importantly, it’s for getting yourself back on track, and finding the best version of yourself.  Same with the blog, as it started out about divorce survival, but has totally turned into a place to share positive thoughts, and new beginnings, reminders to take care of yourself AND show compassion to others.

Someday, I hope people will give it a chance instead of assuming they wouldn’t enjoy it, or need it.  It’s been so cathartic for me, and the positive feed back I do receive from those who follow is what keeps me writing and sharing.  So to you followers?  Thank you from the bottom of my typing fingertips!!

2018 for me is going to be about feeling good about life, being happy with my circumstances, being grateful for my blessings, and spreading positivity through the world – at least my world.

I would love for you to join me.  To quote from my alma mater:  “What starts here changes the world”!

Just A Reminder – – –

While cleaning off my refrigerator the other day (note to self, double-sided sticky tape is really hard to get off your stainless steel appliances!!) – I finally took down one of my 2017 objectives.

Before it goes into the recycle bin, it bears repeating one more time – because it’s so pertinent to the “new year” and “new beginnings” I’ve been sharing.  So indulge me and let’s run this one by one more time.

A quote by Brigitte Nicole:

Either they like you or they don’t  Never try to convince somebody of your worth.  If a person doesn’t appreciate you, they don’t deserve you.  Respect yourself and be with people who truly value “you”.

Can I hear an AMEN!

Another “New” Year Philosophy!

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending”

If I hadn’t just changed the bottom of my signature line on my email, I would have used this one.  What a profound yet easily followed suggestion?

We especially – at this time of the year, are thinking of changes we want to make to our lives, and resolutions to make our days brighter, healthier, better, happier – all those thoughts.

Truly tho’, except for a mulligan in golf, we rarely get many “do overs”!  Life just doesn’t work that way.

So what I take from this quote is simply that while I can’t change the past, or my actions and thoughts from “before” – I do have all the choices ahead of me of how I move forward.

So here’s to a great new beginning to my brand new ending!  Like it says in the country song of the female lead singer . . . “Can I get a big Hell Yeah?”
