Gratitude, positive, tomorrow & seconds a day

What has helped me is a gratitude journal, I list out a few things everyday that I am thankful for--they are simple items, When asked I smile and say I am doing good and I have started to make plans for something to look forward to, short term and long term. Put my life in perspective and happier

Get your head into it.

I spending a lot of time explaining to myself WHY I can do it . I explore my failures, I made bad choices along the way. What are better decisions and what's stopping me from changing my future.

Stay positive!

Every morning before you get out of bed, (even if the kids are already fighting)... say to yourself: This is going to be a positive day! Take a deep breath and start a great day!

People hear you smile

Whether you are typing a blog, or answering the phone, people can "hear" you smile. Attitude counts, and how you answer a phone or a message can definitely be seen in how you respond. Practice picking up the phone with a smile in your voice!

Make a Habit of Smiling

I've read that you can make yourself happy by smiling. If you smile throughout the day, it sends a message to the brain and you feel better. Try smiling 100 times a day, is what I've read.

Do What You Can When You Can

If you got only five minutes to workout than take those five minutes and put them to good use other than saying theres no time. Busy for the week on the weekend cook your meals in advance. Its the little things that count and can make all the difference in the world

Notes

I put stickys around my house..on the stove...you are a great cook. In the bath room--you are beautiful...just simple reminders that I am worth it. It is ok to be stuck...it is getting out and dancing to your life that matters.

visualize

I visualize how I will look and feel when I get to my goal. I remember how I used to feel and the energy I had. Then, I visualize the nice clothes I will be able to wear.

Going out to eat

We went to the Olive Garden. I was good except for a sliver of the cake. I know they use salt & I always go up when I go there but I will drink, drink & drink today.
