Good Morning Monday~Choices

~Good Morning Monday~

We all have a choice to leave
We all have a choice to stay
We all have a choice to be silent
We all must choose what to say

Some of our choices involve pride
Some of our choices take strength
Some of our choices are instant
And some of our choices have great lengths

option-112225_1280

A choice may have a consequence
A choice may have a heavy weight
A choice may include a sacrifice
A choice to open or close the gates

Many choices have compromise
Many choices are extremely hard
If choices were meant to be easy
The answers would be in the cards

So choose your circles wisely
For our lives depend on our choices
The choices we make are ours to keep
We must listen to our little conscious voices

Whatever it is you choose, may it bring you happiness and love xox
 

 

 

Good Morning Monday: Spring!

~It sure is a good morning Monday 🙂 Spring!!

The birds chirp away and the sun seems as though it’s here to stay
Each morning the bright sky sings
The melody of the vibrant rays match the songs of the song birds

Awake to a feeling of life and purpose
The flowers sway in the wind and dance to the soft voices of nature
Spring seems like summer and life comes out of the ground

The seeds have been planted and the earth now moves to breathe new life
A baby born in each and every inch of rich soil
Moisture from winter warms to a temperature so perfect; its scent so fresh

Spring and summer collide and mixtures of elements combine together
How are we so fortunate for this fine weather?
Our paradise lush and blooming just for us

Let us welcome the early stages of summer and bask in this greatness
Let our gratitude match the songs of the sun, the earth and the lovely song birds xox

Have a beautiful day on this; a beautiful Monday 😀

Good Morning Friends xo

Good morning friends!

yoga-628111_1280

Life is funny sometimes isn’t it? Sometimes it’s awful, hard and terrifying. Sometimes it’s lovely and wonderful. Sometimes your world has to fall apart to gain a new appreciation for life. I wonder how many of us actually know how important we are?

How many lives have we touched? What would be the response if we suddenly vanished from this life?

I bet a lot of us will never know what kind of mark we have left on this earth. How many lives we have changed just by being our true selves? I believe we are loved more than we think.

When we smile at a stranger walking down the street or hold a door for someone walking behind us. It’s the simple act of showing a friend how much they mean to you with a long embrace after not seeing them for a week. Telling a long-lost family member that you are always thinking of them through hard times. That is what keeps us moving forward.

Love.

Each time I lose a close friend I wonder if they knew how much I loved them and appreciated their friendship. I suddenly feel the urgency to tell everyone close to me how much I love them before it’s too late. The feeling that I may be running out of time haunts me. It’s a feeling I welcome. Live everyday as if it were the last day on earth.

So my message is simple and sincere: tell your loved ones what they mean to you.  Make sure they know how much they mean to you. Share a memory or a feeling. A warm hug or a short phone call.

Tell them you love them. The only time it’s too late is when we are gone from this life. Whatever lies on the other side we won’t know until we get there so spread the message of love to those who have touched your life. I know too well the heartache that accompanies a life lost.

My only regret is that I didn’t get to express to my lost friends how they changed my life for the better. That just their very presence in my world made it lovelier and more wonderful. That I loved them more than they probably knew and that my heart will always have a special place for them.

Tell them you love them as much as you can.

Love xox

May your week be full of love and gratitude and the people who you care about you the most. For that is what makes life great: the people who love us and make us feel loved.

🙂

Good Morning Beautiful! :)

Yes I am talking to you 🙂 Good morning beautiful!!

I just want to say how beautiful you are today
And every day for that matter
So don’t you listen to that chatter

The voice inside that keeps you shy
The silly useless self doubt
Those people who always try and figure you out

It doesn’t matter what day, what they say or if you happen to be gay
You are beautiful in every way xo

I may not know you or see your face
We may never cross paths or be in the same space
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand
It doesn’t matter if you are a woman or a man

You are beautiful!! 😀

It doesn’t matter what you have done
You may be weathered from the bright sun
You may have already heard this today
But you are beautiful I must say

Maybe you don’t hear it enough
So here’s a hit of the really good stuff
You may not feel this way…

BUT

You are beautiful 🙂 I just wanted to say 🙂

I hope you have a beautiful day!

Love

Good Morning Monday! Cherish this Life xo

horses-482594_1280~Good Morning Monday!~

I want to try harder to cherish this life
Each and every breath inhaled with delight
I am so grateful for air and if it vanished
so would my sight

 

 

I shall not take for granted my “necessities”
If my house burns down I know where my priorities would be
To spread a message that all will foresee

How do we do what we love and love what we do?
Find a special path that will guide us straight through
Willing to live with old privileges renewed

There is always a way I always say
The violins and cellos play
Bring in the harmony’s sweet display

So I will not blind my only sight
I will inhale each breath with pure delight
Because I want to try harder to cherish this life xo

Good Morning Monday!

🙂 Good Morning Monday! 🙂

I’m back in action after a two-week hiatus from my dear little blog and I’m so full of posts to post about!

School has taken over.

boy-160168_1280
Going back to school makes me feel young again. Not that I don’t always feel younger than I am, but I feel like school has brought out the kid in me again. You know how sometimes you get jaded about certain things because you are older. I don’t want to be like that anymore so I have decided to stop worrying so much about the future and live in the now.

A classmate of mine is making a yearbook so we can capture all of our memories from this short 12 week program. I feel like I’ve gotten so close to some of my classmates that we are really just like a family. A family of students who are all on the same path to find ourselves and learn new things.

Finally I’m engaged and challenged in a way I’ve needed for a long time.

brain-605603_1280

My wonderful friends from the business program have helped me find who I really am once again:
A leader.

After doubting myself for so long I can finally say that I feel like me.
The real me.
That natural-born leader I have always been on the inside. 🙂

Here’s to new friends and new obstacles in life.

New challenges make life interesting 🙂

Have a wonderful week and stay tuned for this weeks posts!!

Good Morning Ground Hogs Day AND Happy Birthday to my Mommy!! xo

550849_10151730032630444_79610808_n~I’ll never forget how good she has been to me 🙂 Happy Birthday to my Mommy xox

It was a few years back and I was upset about something someone had said to me. I was feeling that familiar feeling. I needed my Mommy. So I called… the tears were escaping their way out and I cried to her as if I were a child again. I remember her voice being so calm and soothing. She told me she was proud of me as she always does and told me to live my life the way I want. I am forever grateful for her wisdom.

Two weeks later I received a letter in the mail. It was thick with papers and other documents. It was a package from my Momma. I opened the envelope to see what was inside and as I did the tears instantly poured from my eyes. Out fell pictures of me and my little brother as kids, papers I had written in elementary school and old report cards with my straight A’s. And with these memories was a simple hand written note that read:

Hi Honey,

Just a few things to remind you who you are. Don’t let anyone say or do anything to change that. I love you just the way you are with all my heart. Be happy for you, not anyone else. LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU.

300292_10150880806705444_827832647_n

Your Mommy xox

And with a smiling sunshine to end the sweet note my heart was filled with more love than I could ever imagine.

To the only person in my life who makes sure I know how proud she is… for the woman who made me who I am today… here’s to my Mommy 😀 I love you more than anything in this world!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 🙂

Ok yes I have shared this note before, but it still brings so many tears of joy I think it’s worth sharing again 😉 I guess I just really LOVE my Mommy!

~Good Morning Monday~ Breathe

photo-1418226970361-9f1f7227d638

Good Morning! Let us all close our eyes and breathe…

~Our minds expand out to take in the extra knowledge
We learn

Divine consciousness and the desire to breathe in more and more
Fill the lungs with life and energy
Free the mind

Inhale and exhale slow and steady
Take in the day
Breathe

Close the eyes and look to a happy place
Peace within

We have everything and anything we want within the walls of flesh

We are all more than meets the eye

We will conquer our fears~

Good Morning Monday!

New faces new friends
A connection begins
Lectures and words
The lessons are learned

My sole purpose to bond
Alike minds will respond
No worries or doubts or concerns

Lessons are shared
Our traits are full bared
Hand in hand we’ll inspire
We respect and admire

Smiles and laughs
Great stories recapped
Together we are the flames of the fire

Our desires are fierce
The knowledge is pierced
Our minds linked as one
Makes the journey such fun

The layers unfolded
Our futures are molded
Choices made and victories won 🙂
