Write it down!!!

Keep a daily log of your activities. When you look back at the log it helps you reflect and gives you an idea of where you can fine tune the areas you want to work on.

Beat the Birthday Blues

It's my birthday today, but things are falling apart at home for me. I'm going to take today as an opportunity to focus on rebuilding myself and make every day of this year count and not wallow in sadness, grief or dispair. It's time to celebrate ME because I'm WORTH it!

SMILE

It's true what they say - smiles are contagious. Help spread them, we shouldn't be wasting our time or energy on unnecessary stress. If you're having a bad day - pick your head up - there might be a compassionate smile right in front of your face.

Want or Need?

Take the time to really figure out if the next thing you're about to buy or the next thing you're about to do is something you WANT vs something you NEED. This helps me everytime I get stuck on having to make a decision.

Take a deep breath and smile...

Too many people have left the earth far too soon. You're here today - whatever turmoil you're going through, try to remember to appreciate that you're at least here to learn a lesson from whatever it is you're going through.

If it's a bonus - put it away like u never got it!

The saying is true - make more, spend more. So when you get raises or bonuses - automatically deduct that extra money and put it in your savings!

Be Selfish

Too often we give ourselves to everyone or everything else. Our families, significant other, jobs ... we need to remember to put the same effort into ourSELVES. (At least I do!)

Transfer It

Before payday - look at what's left in your checking - subtract to the closest fraction and put that in your savings. Even if it's only $20 - a little goes a long way!
