Making lemonade out of lemons

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Well, we took our annual trip to the Quad Cities to view eagles in the wild. Unfortunately, this year we did not get to see a single eagle. :-(

However, we had fun with my Dad & his girlfriend anyway. Plus, we went to the movies after we dropped them back home.

Good day after all. Eagles - we'll see ya next year!!!

Donít assume that happiness is easy

Friday, February 03, 2012

People assume that a person who acts happy must feel happy, but even though itís in the very nature of happiness to seem effortless and spontaneous, it often takes great skill.

    And happiness often comes best to those who aren't directly seeking it, but living their lives to the fullest enables happiness to just "happen!"

    I agree. Sometimes when I don't feel as happy I make myself be positive and it actually lifts my spirits!

Have a great day!

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF

Wednesday, February 01, 2012

What makes you happier: To go to bed early and wake up early, or to go to bed late and wake up late?
ē What are your favorite parts of your ordinary day?
ē What would your perfect day look like? Can you make an ordinary day look more like your perfect day?

    I'm an early morning person! Love to wake up and enjoy a great cup of coffee, watch the news, and catch up on Sparkpeople! Getting to take a long walk outside,eating dinner with my family, and ending the day with a bubblebath would be a great day for me! emoticon

    To answer your first question, I am a night person so I'd rather go to bed late. I still wake up early.

My favorite part of my day? Before everybody wakes up and it's just me and my coffee cup.

Perfect day? Every day that I wake up and I'm not chewing on dirt is a great day. But to make an ordinary day great I pop some popcorn and go sit outside on my porch and watch the dogs and baby cows play. :)

I'm a simple girl.

4 stress-free ways to eliminate stress

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

1. Turn out the light as soon as youíre sleepy. Getting enough sleep makes a huge difference in your sense of energy and cheerfulness.

2. Walk around the block. A little exercise and a little sunlight will give you a big boost.

3. Take ten minutes before bed to tidy up.

4. Make your bed. This sounds trivialóbut try it.

  #4 is something I had kind of let go by the wayside and just recently started making it again it does make you feel so much better when you crawl into it, almost feels fresh!

Thanks for sharing!

    I have been in the habit of making my bed since I rented
the room for 4 months. It stuck and I make it every morning,
although not always real neat, but I do make it!
