It isn’t easy living life to the fullest, each day a new issue, challenge, thought comes about that can make you question everything you have in your life. I have been reading a lot of articles, late at night, while the kids are asleep. I have found inspiration and strength in prayer as well. I thrive to live life to the fullest, it’s my mission. To me, if I live life to the fullest and take reasonable risks, learn from mistakes and move on, my kids learn how to do this too. While I don’t like making too many drastic mistakes, it is up to me to define what drastic really is. I am the only one who knows myself, knows my children and knows what’s best for us all.
One way to learn to live life to the fullest of our ability is to ensure that you are not allowing others to make you feel negatively. As long as you are honest with your own self and others, then you need to stand firm in that. Life isn’t always easy, people do get hurt, you will get hurt, but you can’t dwell on those emotions for too long or else it will absorb you and in turn you wake up unable to look in the mirror at your own face. Do not let life ever get you to that point of inability to recognize yourself. That’s a bad place to be. It’s no good for you, it’s no good for anyone else around you.
One thing I have learned about life, is that you just have to do what’s best for you. Stop explaining and don’t fear what others may say or not understand. The best people in your life will support you, even if they disagree with you. Those are the type of people to keep yourself around, not people who just support you blindly, but those who are willing to cite their view on things while still supporting you.
Living life to the fullest involves; surrounding yourself with supportive people, never living in a way that makes you feel cowardly, and pushing forward once you realize what direction to go!
The first hole I had pierced in my ears was around age six. That hole become two more added later in life, one got ripped out and hurt badly so that one is no longer “active” and there is a third hole on one ear that was done wrong so I don’t use that one either. I basically have two spots on both ears I can wear earrings — as shown below. The issue is that no matter the type of earring I try to wear, my ears turn bright red and get all infected in the earring piercing hole…. I don’t know why. BUT I do know I wish I could wear earrings more often…

Forget the past, let’s move on to have a beautiful Monday because after all this is the start of a new week, such as that of a new day being a chance at new beginnings.
Let this Monday be our chance at the start of a great week!
Living a positive lifestyle does not necessarily mean that you are oblivious or blinded of the bad in this world. For one to choose to live a positive lifestyle with the positive attitude, you must be aware of the bad as well, life is all about balance. The choice to simply focus on the good and positive means that you are making a conscious effort in making your life and that of your family better. Turning on the news, I see nothing but negative, all of the bad people and crimes being focused on. Rarely is there a huge news segment about positive helpers, the good in this world and similar. That is why all too often I turn off the local news channel, I much prefer to see a balance of good and bad being reported with the focus being that of the good.
In all reality you can truly find something good within every bad situation, event or moment in your world. It will take time to truly feel and believe with all of your heart and soul that positive thinking truly works and it make take years before you really reap the benefits of having such a mindset. This is probably why so many try to think positive and then give up. It is a time consuming process of truly training your mind, heart and soul to believe a completely different way than what you grew up to know.
I feel my kids blessed to have a mother who truly believes and lives in the positive mindset, because they are not being shown just one way of thinking. In school and with friends as well as other family members my children are taking in how others view the world through the words spoken to them but more importantly through watching how these other people in their world live and interact with them. For me, the decision to focus on positive rather than good and to believe that everything will end up working out in my favor, was a way to help raise three kids with little stress and in turn having my kids watch me grow, learn how to adapt and come out strong.
All we all seem to wish for our next generation is that they have an open mind, willingness to love others, and good strong morals with a great character. If choosing to focus on the positive and lead this type of life in front of and with my children creates that, then it will be worth every moment when someone tells me my thought pattern is messed up. People may be able to get my mind to jilt for just one moment into the negative with their dash of negativity but they will never, ever break my confidence in leading this positive lifestyle that works so well for all in my direct path. If you really want to learn more about how it is I think and why it has worked for others too, The Secret is a great movie to watch or book to read. It is a documentary of sorts really and it really worked to help show others how my mind really works and how it is directly connected with the universe.
Summer is just around the corner, with that comes kids out of school and more pressure on the stay at home parent to keep the kids from being bored, sitting around in front of the television and if you are like my family, then you plan many pool and beach days! Essential oils are something that our ancestors used to help mend illness, keep our skin soft and manage a variety of health issues that we seem to use prescription medications for these days.
I am not a medication taking sort of person, never have been. I believe there is usually a more natural cure for any illness or disease you may have, it’s just a matter of whether that option is legal and how to find it. Essential oils can not only assist in helping you get over illnesses but they are a great way to keep your skin soft and shiny. With Summer coming and beach days, don’t you want to have the best health and skin possible for that bathing suit?
I say get ready for Summer by ensuring that your mind, body and soul are ready to have a blast with the children this year!
