Life is beautiful. 8 years ago
Just by doing the little things. I’m doing the refreshments this evening for a friend at the local amateur theatre, although I’ve had a bad day, am really tired after working extra yesterday & on call last night. It’ll make my friend so happy, also she’s got me down to train someone else. I know I’ll feel great when I get there, I’ll soon develop into the social butterfly I become when in the spotlight, it’s also easier relating to people when you have a job to do & can hide behind the refreshments. People think I’m so confident, just good at acting when I need to, if only they knew! 8 years ago

I am really close to my mom and stepdad. I even talk to them more than anyone else in my family. Keep in mind that I live in California, while they and my family live in Mississippi. It is really weird- the older I got, the closer we got. I moved out years ago, moved across the country with my husband and 3 year old son, and yet, I am so close to them.
Anyways, I broke my computer a few weeks ago (actually, my hubby broke it- long story). I got a package today, which I knew was from my mom and stepdad for a late Mother’s Day. I looked inside and it was a brand new laptop!!! How thoughtful of them. I love them so much!! 8 years ago
...& what’s wrong with me is on the mend 8 years ago
...the thought of it is always worse than the doing.
.....I would only be alright if I could get started!!!!
Need to remember the feeling of tranquility, cleaniness, order & peacefulness when everything is in it’s place, clean & easy to hand. Little & often. Got out of routine need to get back into it & feel the benefits of achieving this, i did it before & can do it again. 8 years ago
...learn to stop making excuses & accept them for what they are! 8 years ago
... always makes me feel wonderful & full of hope. 8 years ago
... it’s infectious & always comes back to make you feel even better about yourself 8 years ago
Those little things that remind us how precious is life 8 years ago
It means they are actually listening to what I have told them & giving me a taste of my own medicine e.g. I had my hair down for work (usually up) a learner pointed out that I ‘looked like I had been dragged out of a hedge backwards’ The week before we had been working on personal appearances & judging books by the covers etc.I’m lucky to be a part of someone who is making a difference to their world & journey towards independence 8 years ago
The emerging leaves on the trees, the flowers in my garden. I can see such a tree outside my bedroom window, I love to listen to the birds & the rustling of the leaves. The rustling reminds me of the sea & soothes my soul. 8 years ago
I’m beginning to count my blessings. Things & people come into your life when they are needed most. By checking out who has cheered me gives me encouragement, inspiration & new goals to work towards. Lately I have been losing sight of the good things, as mentioned by others, I need to “wake up & smell the coffee” so to speak. 8 years ago
i’m back to doing less of this, especially the last few days. it’s sort of hard to maintain momentum for this goal. you know, with life and stuff. :/ 8 years ago
This kind of goes into my “Live Every Day Like It’s My Last” entry and I am trying to learn how to just take pleasure in little everyday kind of things, like cleaning the bathroom and scrubbing the floor. But there is a lot of satisfaction that comes from accomplishing things like that, which is a change for me, because I have always hated housework and I’m not really sure why. But I am learning how to enjoy doing it and this is helping in learning to enjoy every day. 9 years ago
I think I’m doing more of this lately. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the silly trivial things that ultimately don’t matter and miss what does matter. For example, what’s perceived as a bad day is likely marred by a bad event in a day that was otherwise good. For me, learning to recognize the good over the bad is a priority, i.e., recognizing the seven completely cool people encountered, versus the one jerk who made you feel bad. 9 years ago
