Reflecting on Good Times

These memories make me happy. Reflect on your memories of specific events, or times in your life where you were happy. It will help you to keep things in perspective as it will remind you that the key to happiness is knowing you have the power to choose what to hold onto, and what to let go. Hold on to the good times and let go of the pain that resulted from difficult times.


Hi Everyone 

Hi friends, 

I hope all of you are doing well. I’ve been missing for awhile but I hope to get back to regular posts. I appreciate everyone that still visits my blog and leaves comments. You guys help to create an amazing community here on WordPress. 
Above is a picture of my dinner tonight. Sadly, I haven’t cooked In awhile, but tonight I pushed through the forces that were holding me back, and I made this meal. It’s a BBQ pork chop with pasta in homemade Asiago and Gouda cheese sauce. It was delicious. What did you have for dinner?

Keep Something for Yourself

I was taught to give to others from the heart. My parents showed me the joy that can be had when you put yourself second. As a result it takes no effort on part to help someone in need, It’s a natural response of mine. I do not have to know the person to help them. We are all neighbors in this world, and we all need a little sugar sometimes, or just a kind word. 

We can give in so many ways. Sometimes one word, or gesture is all someone needs to get back up and keep going. It’s important to never limit yourself when it comes to how you can help others. Give your best and don’t look for anything in return. Most times you do not receive something in return, but it’s when you least expect it that you see the result of your kindness, at one time or another. 

Even though being self sacrificing can be very rewarding; it’s important to keep a little something just for you. Remember you must also be kind to yourself. Love others with the same love you have for Yourself.
