Make a wish, Spread your wings, and Fly

“The moment you doubt whether you can fly you cease forever to do it.”

This advice is from J.M Barrie’s Peter Pan…and it works for all of us. Never stop believing in your goal. Or, if you notice that you do stop believing…it’s probably time to find the next goal or chapter in your life.

Because you? You were meant to FLY!

Sunday, Smiling, and Why Being Nice Matters!

This is important: Be Nice to Yourself! Image

Sunday is a good day for a little reflection, a little relaxation, and a whole lot of being nice to yourself. Smile. Breathe. Take a minute to recharge and get ready for the week ahead. Remember, studies show that the brain on positive is over 30% more effective than on stressed, or even neutral.

How to get and stay positive: Be Nice…to YOU! Take some time to do at least one thing each day that is just for you. Even if that one thing is only 5 minutes in your day!

Have a great week. xo~Lisa

Checklist: 10 Ways to Make it a Super Saturday that are Good for the Soul

A quick and easy “Checklist for a Lovely Day.” And, I agree with almost all 10 on this list…

How to have a lovely day...

I have a little bit of an issue with “Wear Perfume.” Smelling nice is great, but I would replace that one with “Drink Coffee,” or even, “Read a Book”!

But perfume is ok, too..I suppose!! How about you…what is on your checklist titled Nice Day?

Weekend Wise Words: Think Outside

It’s Friday. Time to unplug and recharge.

Hope you’re able to enjoy some time outside this weekend.

Thinking: Optional.    Relaxing: Mandatory.

There are a lot of amazing hiking trails nearby where I go to reconnect and recharge. The great outdoors requires very little of us, other than showing up. I feel a little lighter and stay in the moment a little longer when I’m among the trees & sunshine.

How about you? Does nature help you feel replenished & refreshed? What’s your favorite way to recharge on the weekends?
