Never lose hope ! ❤️ for LIFE!


Perhaps, “She is gone…AWOL!” ,you thought. No I am here, I have been working very hard…and my life is changing for the better. Work; that dirty word. Unfortunately, you actually have to do the action required to get the desired results. No one can do “it” for you; although it might, indeed, be nice to have a genie or a fairy godmother. Alas, as that  is not the case, we have to toil diligently if we want the utmost results. It is easy to become discouraged; either because of yourself or society. Try soooo hard not to let that negativity get to you. You have probably have more positive…umph.. than you realize!!

Mental: It’s really okay to have a bad day! I seem like I’m super-peppy and optimistic. I usually am! But do you seriously think there are people who NEVER have bad times?? Really? We are emotional beings by nature; it is actual  not the norm to NOT have emotions. We needn’t be hard on ourselves for being “off”. It just happens 🙂

Physical : Just because others give you limitations,it does not mean you have to accept them. Limits can be pushed and changed; I know this well. You may feel like the world has given up on you, therefore you might as well give up on yourself. Your body can handle quite a bit. Obviously, if something is very painful :not good. But :tired and sore from exercise is a good kind of sore 🙂

Social: Like attracts like. Not scientifically guys! If we are around positive, usually happy go-getters, we might be encouraged to act “as if”. Conversely, cohorting with pessimistic consumers may place a negative spin on one’s life. This is NOT suggesting not to interact with those having a bad spell; like I said, everyone has their moments!

You truly never know what someone else is going through.
