“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” It goes both ways – if someone says something unpleasant to you, you have every right to tell them to be quiet. Everyone has an opinion, and everyone believes that they are right. No matter what you say, the other person is likely committed to their beliefs. Try to stay positive, express your own opinion, then move on – don’t engage in a confrontation.
Surround yourself with your happier friends and family. A strong social network is important. If you begin to feel stressed or depressed, don’t isolate yourself – find a friendly face and let their merry mood infect you.
Don’t lose sight of what your body needs during this busy time. Strive to get adequate sleep, make healthy eating choices, exercise to help stress, and surround yourself with a healthy environment by enjoying nature’s seasonal smells, sights, and sounds.
When you are pleasant to others, it’s will be reflected back to you. Equally, when you project anger toward others, this will be mirrored back to you, which may cause anxiety and depression. So, this holiday season, don’t let family drama stress you out. Remember the reason for the season, and enjoy the time that you have together.
This festive season, do what you can and don’t worry about what you can’t or don’t want to do.
A tad early eh? But after this year anything goes in my home!! 🎄🎅🎀
I just want that little bit of peace and joy I know Christmas brings me every year. That’s why my holiday celebrations will start early.
Christmas lights give me hope and joy. Every year, I look forward to seeing them put up on my tree! As a sign of hope and happiness,I have put some up. I thought my tree would help us all have something joyous and pretty to look at.
It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! That crisp, cold scent of cold air in the air combined with the delicious scent of. evergreen flowing thru my home– these Christmassy aromas are bound to put anyone in a festive mood🎄
I hope my Christmas tree puts a smile on your face – like it does mine!
Let’s never forget the brave men and women who served the cause of freedom in the past, nor those whose service today enables us to continue to live freely.
Wherever you might be November 11, I invite you to pause at the eleventh hour and join me in a moment of silence as we honour those who fought and those who sacrificed their lives for the privileged freedom we are to enjoy today.
May each of our veterans feel honored, not just today…but every day.
As we approach Halloween 2020, the world certainly seems terrifying, though perhaps not quite in the ways we usually associate with the holiday.
Fortunately, you can always curl up on the couch with a big bag of candy and a horror movie and call it a night.
A rare blue moon will light up the sky on Oct. 31, 2020, making everyone’s Halloween just a little bit spookier!!! “My Mom used to tell me that a full moon was when mysterious things happen and wishes come true.“
This year has been immensely stressful for many, and that surrounding yourself with small things that bring you joy, like Pumpkins … Christmas tree and decorations, could really boost your mental health.
With the year we’ve had, everyone could do with a bit of happiness. It’s (finally) something positive and joyful to look forward to. Christmas always provides a reason for celebration and a relaxing welcomed break, so it’s understandable that people are looking forward to and plan for it earlier than ever this year.
But what about putting your tree up super early – say November? “Decorating your home early can create that neurological shift, a spike in the feel-good hormone dopamine which can produce happiness. If there was ever a year to make an exception to decorate early, this could be it. It’s a crazy year. If putting up your Christmas tree early will bring you a little extra joy, why not,” she adds.: “Christmas is about family, love, and togetherness. The tree is the physical symbol of these values and in a year of separation, having this reminder in our homes is worth a whole lot more.”
I hope you find yourself comforted during these darkening days with the love that shines from within you.💕
I picked up a bunch of books on writing and journaling! They started trickling in slowly, and I was beyond excited to receive this book !!
While I’ve been reading several of them at once, but this first one I finished is called “Writing Down Your Soul” by Janet Conner.
The author gently guides the reader through the steps needed to where they can open up to the Voice within, to really share on the written page from their heart and soul. Janet shares her incredible life story as she guides the reader to seek their own inner wisdom. With a comprehensive list of question to ask the voice, she aids the reader to find their own list of questions, and thereby answers, to their deepest thoughts and inner soul..
When you’re caught up in something you really love, your mind goes quiet and your soul takes over. It’s a beautiful, freeing feeling and something we should all strive to experience more often.
This has been a challenging year!! As we celebrate the Thanksgiving weekend, it can be hard to feel thankful when life hands us challenge after challenge, especially when we feel we can’t handle any more..
As I head into Thanksgiving 2020. I arrive with gratitude for all that I have learned whether I wanted to learn these lessons or not. I am forever changed by the events of 2020- but it is my choice to respond to those losses with either anger or understanding. It is important to recognize that we have no control what will happen each day other than to have gratitude about our ability to control our own responses and behavior to each hard situation life hands us. If it has been hard for you to feel thankful in 2020, I hope that you can instead feel gratitude that you can read this today and that you have the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with at least one person that you love and care about. If your house was full in the past and you felt overwhelmed by the preparation for such a big group, you should realize how lucky you are and how much gratitude should fill your heart. Be thankful that you can be grateful.
Even with all the chaos 2020 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We’d even argue one of the greatest gifts this challenging year has given us was a new perspective on the things we’ve been taking for granted all this time! A new perspective on just how grateful I am for the simplest of things. And while many are still struggling this Thanksgiving, I hope you are able to take a moment and practice some gratitude for all the lessons 2020 has brought us.
Happy Thanksgiving! I know this year has been rough, but I see your strength and wish you all the best this Thanksgiving!!
I’ve thought about this questions for a while and how people’s opinions on this are. I don’t really see it as being selfish in a way, but more like a way to attract attention to oneself. That’s why I don’t tell other people when my birthday is unless they directly ask me, as I’m more of an introvert who doesn’t like the spotlight.
Some people will have no respect for my time. Whether it’s friends or clients, I / we escorts deal with some individuals who can’t seem to understand we all have a schedule . So what I do is put distance between these people very quickly 👍
Now for the fake people…the ones behind the phone apps, emails, “They think they’re smart by using the app to try to disguise who they are, but usually there’s some sort of a footprint left behind.” “I treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to me – not because they are nice, but because I am.”
No longer do I feel that I have to be perfect. Life is not fair at times and I have come to accept that there may always be someone who is smarter, more successful or more talented than I. I know in my heart that I have tried to live my life . If people are not willing to accept me for who I am, then I do not need to be accepted by them. Knowing that I put a hundred percent effort in the Stephanie world, I am completely satisfied with the person I am.
I am a firm believer in KARMA….Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve!!
I don’t take things for granted. I appreciate the people in my life – I never know how long I will have with them.
