Keeping it Positive!

Let’s talk about being POSITIVE!  Especially in the world today..

Ever here the terms “Negative Nellies/Normans”, “Debbie/Donnie Downers”??

It is true!  So many people tend to focus on the “negatives” instead of the “POSITIVES“.

Why is that?  Maybe if we just take a minute to stop, and change our mindsets to something that makes us feel happy, and not let the little things get us down.  Do people realize that NO ONE really wants to hear you?  Maybe go take that workout you have been putting off, and use it to let off some steam?  Before you take your bad day home with you, take a moment to change your head, and make a positive change!

I myself find exercise a way to “release” the worries/troubles/frustrations, anything negative, and change focus and attitude. It can be as simple as taking a walk listening to your favorite artist.  You know, that song that makes you smile, makes you want to be in your happy place!  It is amazing how quickly you can turn your day around!

Nowadays, social media can be something!  Reading status updates all day long, makes us wonder how people deal with things.  It is funny.  Either you have someone who just feels the need to complain with every post, or someone who wants to keep you motivated and smiling.  I vote for the latter!  I love to see people happy, a funny joke, a light-hearted story.

I think positive thoughts bring about positive results!  So if you have been focusing too much on the negative, take this blog to make you “re-think” your attitude!

Go do something that makes you smile!  The joy you feel is infectious! It will bring happiness to all that surround you.  If everyone takes time out to do something to make someone smile, this world will be a better place!

In the words of the famous, and very talented Bob Marley, “Don’t worry, ’bout a thing, ’cause every little thing..gonna be alright”.

Try this diet, do this routine, go to this club!  Enjoy your free trials! Sign up for the next 12 week Bikini Challenge!  If you listen closely enough you can hear the “Cha Ching”.

Investing in your health is something you SHOULD do.  Not just for January thru April, but for life!  Committing to get fit should be a daily routine.  Keeping consistency is key. Perhaps that club, or boot camp gets you motivated to get going!  Then great!  Go for it! But maybe, just maybe you should also consider investing some of those dollars on some equipment for your home.  Keep the cardio going, get some kettlebells, free weights, bands, bars, mats.  Bring what you learn out there, into your own home!

Keep motivated daily!  Bring about some good habits to translate to better health ALL YEAR LONG! So don’t be a couch potato!!!

Let’s be United Again!


If you haven’t had enough stress and run yourselves ragged over the last year due to the election process, you can exhale now!

With that being said, it is time to come together and unite as a country!

Regardless of who won, or what our personal opinions may be.  The process of our democracy has taken place.  And we must work together as a nation to build us back up as a people.  No person will do that for us.  Only we can!  Let’s work for the common good, for ALL people!  Love, respect and kindness is long overdue!  Regardless of race, religion, sex or political party.  It is time we realize that being a human being is worth more than anything else.  Support a cause, work together to get things done, across the aisle, for the people!

Our time can be put to good use helping our fellow man and woman.  It is so simple really! Paying it forward?  A kind gesture to a stranger, volunteering to work with veterans or children in all communities, the elderly.  Think about how we can make this world a better place with just making our attitudes more positive and light!

Now this is a choice, plain and simple.  If you are a Negative Nelly, or a David Downer, then knock that crap off!  You want to sulk and cry, go ahead what will that get you?  What example are you giving?  Have children watching?  Even more reason to discuss how to respect the process and people.  Even if you don’t agree, it takes a big person to admit that things may have not gone our way, but we can give peace a chance.  We can work towards a better tomorrow.  RESPECT! But ultimately, it starts with us.  One at a time.  Think before you act.  For every action, there is a reaction.

This is not a usual blog for me.  However, I always talk of positivity and health.  This is still true.  One can find happiness in well being.  So please, spread the positive vibes, and nothing will stop us as a people!  Hang in there America!  We got this!

Go in peace and love, and spread it around!
