The Only Positive FIX to Any Problem

The Only Positive FIX to Any Problem ~ "Life is like an ice-cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time."“Life is like an ice-cream cone, you have to lick it one day at a time.”Charles M. Schulz

I scream for Ice-Cream! Always! Now more since I have been off sugar for the past almost 4 months…yup I do crave my cold, sweet and completely decadent ice cream fix.

I remember as a little girl, whenever I was in a bad mood my daddy took me out for ice cream. In those moments, while licking that sweet wondrous treat all my bad moods would turn sweet. All those frowns would turn into smiles. All that troubled me melted as quickly as the ice cream itself. Continue reading

How to Enjoy and Find Happiness in the process of Doing tasks Positive Provocations“Be Happy in the moment, thats enough. Each moment is all we need, not more.” ~ Mother Teresa

We all sleep at night with a to do list in our mind. Even if you are not the list making kind, you do surely make a mental list. Nothing wrong with that. This list can include waking up at a certain time, eating at a certain time, eating a particular breakfast, dropping the kids off to school, responding to a few social calls, paying the bills, work engagements, reading a book…. or yes something as mundane as just doing the dishes. We all have things we need to do in our life. Be it small or big tasks, we all have a pull to do them. These tasks big or small in turn help to make life run smoothly and give you much satisfaction with the end result. Continue reading

7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU

7 Simple Ways to Be Beautifully YOU - Positive Provocations“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Being Beautifully YOU means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some  it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME. Continue reading

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year

7 Positive Ways to keep Stress far, REALLY far away from you this New Year“Stress is not what happens to us. It’s our response to what happens and response is something we can choose.” ~ Maureen Killoran

HAPPY NEW YEAR DARLINGS :)

A New Year means a new dawn. A new beginning. Are you coming into this glorious new year with old unnecessary baggage(stress)??? 

Believe it or not, we are almost always surrounded by stress. Be it work stress, relationship stress, self image stress, social stress….the list can be endless. Stress is unavoidable…it will be thrown at us at every nook and corner…BUT although we don’t have a choice at what is thrown at us…we have a choice as to how we allow it to effect us.

New year stress can be a very real thing. Its human tendency to reflect on the year gone by and think of all the things we achieved or didn’t achieve. I personally choose to focus on what I did achieve…that leads me to feel happy for the year that has gone by and makes me feel hopeful for the new year. Continue reading
