A Positive New Year

Shelby at almost 2 yrs.
Shelby is sharing a few tips for a positive new year.

1.   Believe that everything happens for a reason; that in the end good things come out of adversity.

2.   Live with purpose and passion.  Success and happiness are sure to find you.

3.   Be grateful.

4.  Smile - it not only makes everyone else feel happier but you as well.

5.  When you work - work hard; when you play - play hard.
      Both are necessary.

6.   Eat well - get enough sleep - and don't forget to exercise.

7.  Finally remember life is a precious gift and we are only given one -  so let's enjoy unwrapping it.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the new year.  God Bless!

P.S.  Due to some life's challenges that have come my way  I may be only posting once a week.   Will try to visit each of you as often as possible.  

Hugs Debbie

  2. What a great list - big hugs to Shelby for them :) What a funny way he sits! Those long front legs! Have a wonderful 2015 and connect when you can - sometimes life takes more time and blogging really isn't that important in the big scheme of things.

  5. Dear Debbie,
    Beautiful post... Words to ponder. . My dear mother use to say everything happens for a reason... Even when you cannot see it at the time...I find at times that is not always easy to do, but this is where faith comes in.
    I will keep you in my thoughts, and also in my prayers..
    blessings,
    Penny
