Let Laughter and Nature Be Our Medicine!

Flowers have a soft and natural way of healing your soul.

During this time of the Coronavirus pandemic, we can choose to let fear and anxiety take over our lives or we can choose to keep the joy and laughter as our natural medicine for mental health and well being.

Every day I wake up choosing to be happy and to live that day as though it is my last day that I have to live which means no looking back at yesterday or worrying about tomorrow. Instead, I just go about my day working hard with a positive attitude and then making time after work for some playtime with those who love and appreciate life as much as I do. And believe me, we always have so much fun and we enjoy every moment of it.

So to prevent the fears and negativity that is spreading so quickly around us, I thought the following jokes that my brothers shared this morning with our family would light up your spirits as you go about your day.

We are all one and we are all connected. Let’s focus on staying strong and centered in our core and spread our love for life and keep our community awakened and lifted.

I hope you like the jokes below:

1. When your life is in darkness, pray to God and ask Him to free you from darkness….. and if you are still in darkness..Please pay your Electrical bill.

2. When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing; Either the car is new or the wife.

3. What’s the difference between stress, tension and panic? Stress is when wife is pregnant,… Tension is when girlfriend is pregnant. Panic is when both are pregnant.

4. Grammar Teacher: Do you know the importance of a period? Kid: “Yeah, once my sister said she has missed one, my mom fainted, dad got a heart attack & our driver ran away…”

5.  A young boy asks his Dad : “What is the difference between confident and confidential? Dad says: “You are my son, I’m confident about that. Your friend over there, is also my son, that is confidential.”

6. Someone asked an old man : “Even after 70 years, you still call your wife Darling, Honey, Love.” What’s the secret?” Old man : “I forgot her name and I’m scared to ask her!”

7. A bookseller conducting a market survey asked a woman: “Which book has helped you most in your life?” The woman replied , “My husband’s checque book!”

Laughter is the best and cheapest medicine. Happy Beautiful Sunday!

Much love and inner peace to you…

8 Reasons Why You Are Not Where You Want to Be.

My best friend and owner of Shiny Carpet Cleaning is the perfect example of Confidence, Discipline and Action.

Ever wonder why your life is not where you want it to be? Are you frustrated because you have worked so hard and yet, there is nothing to show for it? Well, it all begins with you.

In my opinion, having passion and knowing what you want for your life play crucial roles in helping you to get there. But perhaps there are some things that you are currently lacking that may be preventing you from reaching your fullest potential and living your best life. I am speaking from my very own personal experience. I have had to learn some very hard lessons along the way.

Below are just some of my thoughts on why you still are not where you want to be in your life:

1. Lack of Planning

You can see your happy and successful future so clearly, but what is missing is a plan on how you will get there. What are you waiting for? Start planning! No one will do that for you. Let’s get to work and implement those plans!

2. Lack of Self Confidence

How can anyone believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself? Your lack of self confidence will prevent you from reaching your goals because fear takes over and you are entertaining it. Don’t allow fear to get in the way.

3. Lack of Focus

Focusing on the wrong things can be unproductive and a time waster. Do you know the top 3 priorities in your life? Write those down and keep them somewhere that you see regularly to keep you on track. If anything or anyone get in the way of those priorities, drop them.

4. Lack of Discipline

We are not born disciplined. To me this is a learned behavior. When we lack discipline, we lack initiative and we lack inner strength. Being a disciplined person takes effort, but it also requires you to train your mind and tell yourself that you are a disciplined person.

5. Lack of guidance and support

You are who you surround yourself with. Who are the people closest to you? Who are the top 5 people you spend most of your time with? Are they on the same life path and purpose as you? I have many friends after 20 years, still struggling in the same life’s challenges. It’s because they surround themselves with people who do not share their path of success and happiness. You are a product of your environment and surroundings. Surround yourself with people who will guide and support your path to reaching your fullest potential and who challenges you to live your best life!

6. Lack of Accountability

When you take responsibility for your life, it puts you at choice. Choose to be in the driver seat instead of just going with the flow or follow along. If you don’t hold yourself accountable, then who will? Drive your life and get to the destination of your dreams! ” It is not what we only do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.” ~John Baptiste Moliere

7. Lack of Faith

How can your dreams come true if you don’t believe that they will? Faith helps you to overcome obstacles that get in the way of success. When we have faith, everything and anything are possible.

8. Lack of Action

This to me is the most important above all else. Without action, there is no result and your dreams cannot come into reality. Talk is cheap without action to follow. Now is the time to start. Stop talking about what you will do and start doing it.
