How is your life treating you?

This last month has been challenging to say the least. You just think you are getting things a bit more organized and then you realize how much more you have to do. Now the decision is what should you do next? Nothing! Tackle a small job!! Work each day on keeping things more organized!!! This is on you. How are you going to move forward?

You can write another list with numbers according to their importance and assign them or you could put assignments on straws and have family members draw a straw and be responsible for getting that chore done. You could try putting projects that need to be done in a box and have family members draw an assignment. Problem is some assignments may be tougher than others.

Halloween went by in a flash and Thanksgiving is running to meet us. Black Friday is being toted every day. It almost makes you feel like you need to put on roller skates to keep up. Everyone is having sales and more sales.

I remember when we all started Christmas preparation, not before Halloween, but after Thanksgiving letting families enjoy Thanksgiving . The weather would be starting to change. Originally coming from Iowa, I remember Thanksgiving with snow. It was so exciting. Maybe the Holidays were hectic, and only the good things remain in my memory bank.

What about a time out day! ! Even half a day Time out from everything related to a schedule, errands, work, school etc. Only relaxing fun things can be done on that day. OK, we probably have to put a time limit on that or the whole family will rebel.

Here are some suggestions for you:

Make your home smell enchanting . Purchase a diffuser and some essential oils that makes you like relax, such as lavender. Then relax.

Find someone to watch your little ones for a morning or afternoon. You will then pay them back so they can take a time out day.

Think, do you want a bubble bath, or would you rather go to a yoga class? Do you want a massage to work the kinks out of your neck and shoulders. Don’t forget the guys here maybe they want a day out also.

Maybe you just want to take a nap without interruption, listen to some nice music or read a good book. Treat yourself to lunch out. Do something spontaneous without worrying about having to pick someone up, take someone to a doctor visit etc.

Think how refreshed you will feel and you can begin again with renewed energy and confidence.

Negativity, moving ahead to appreciate yourself.

The definition of negativity. is habitual skepticism. A skeptic is a person who questions or doubts something. A person who often questions or doubts things. If it is constant are your friends saying to you, why are you so negative? Maybe you don’t consider yourself negative, just a questioner.

How can you change? It is not easy for someone who has a negative, always questioning, sour look on life to change. Sometimes they really resent what other people say to them about changing. If you want to change you have to look at yourself

Do you find people are starting to avoid you? Is your personality bracing? Do you find negative statements come out of your mouth and you think now why did I say that. Negativity can be hurtful without your meaning it to be.

Here are some things you might want to try to change your attitude toward people in general:

Think before you speak!

Learn from others how to express yourself more positively.

Say a small prayer daily for some help in changing. Something like- Please help me today, Lord to say things in a more positive manner! I want to change, but need some help. Amen

Journal what happens as you travel the path toward positivity. Really use the journal. List the negativity you, yourself felt. Don’t sugar coat things. Add what to do differently in the future.

In social gatherings is there a dead silence af!ter you say something?

Appreciate yourself today and everyday written 10/22/20. Thought it might be useful here.

Waking up on a dark and gloomy day you are already wishing that the bright days of summer were still with us. It is raining also but that is ok as we really do need it. You cast your view around your home as you are getting ready for work and think, oh boy, oh boy, a fast pick might make you feel better. Then you think, oh well everything will be waiting patiently for me when I get home.

Your plan for the future ,work harder on getting really organized, so you can look in the mirror and say I am really going to work on this. You have this wonderful idea appreciate me now and every day. So how are you going to do that, think, think and then think some more. Look around you and start to plan. Maybe you could consider this a business plan for yourself. Consider yourself the business that you want to update, feel better about, be thought of as innovative, creative and charming.

Always remember life continues with it’s ups and downs even if the holidays are around the corner. Beautiful babies continue to be born, our growing children need to be fed, surgeries are ongoing, people are looking for jobs or loosing jobs. Churches are encouraging people to remember their religious beliefs, and people still die no matter how much we wish they wouldn’t.

Does part of your preparation of life, especially at the holiday times, include a time for mental relaxation? All the hype on the radio and television, plus the chaos in your own home leaves you restless, anxious and wanting some time to invest in your own health and time for relaxation. Here are some tips you might be able to use:

  • Invest in a yoga class.
  • Reflect on a positive quote daily.
  • Read a good book. One that transports you to a time of relaxation. Not a thriller that leaves you tingling, and unable to sleep.
  • Watch less TV. It gets so boring anyway.
  • Promote good health to your family members, setting the positive example for them.
  • Share some good recipes
  • Look for information on good health.
  • Spirituality -Needed now more than ever. 2020 has definitely been different year. Share like you have never shared before. Share with family, friends and others.
  • Help prepare a meal for a family in need. Do your children understand there are other families hurting out there.
  • Give to a special charity.
  • Go and visit someone who is home bound, in a nursing home or a hospital. If the virus is still with us, design some cards, have your children help. Pack them in a box and send them to the person you love.
  • Be a volunteer. Show respect of others and their traditions.
  • Be safe! Don’t become careless with the safety of your family and yourself.
  • Try an essential oil. You might be pleasantly surprised.
