Choose To Be Happy

I have lived approximately 19,020 days on this earth. If I live to 85 I have about 12,005 days left of my life. Only I can decide how I am going to live those next 12,005 days. Am I going to choose to be sad or happy… peace or in chaos……weak or strong……positive attitude or negative attitude.. As humans we have the power to decide how we are going to choose to live out each day.  

We live in a crazy, chaotic world. All you have to do is turn on the news to see just that. When I wake up each morning I have to decide what my mindset and attitude is going to be. Before my feet hit my floor each morning I think of 5 things I am grateful or thankful for. This way I am starting my day off on a positive note. I have to choose to not let the little things get to me. I have to choose to be happy and not sad . .. calm and not stressed . . .at peace and not anxious. Even when things start to bother you or if someone says something rude it’s all how we handle the situation and how we choose to spend the day we have been given.

 It’s not always easy but if we make a conscious effort we can live our days happy. Even when those around you might not be happy or they might just bug the heck out of you. It’s about finding the good in the bad...the happy in the sad. The positive in the negative.  

Psalm 90:12 says, “Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Even the Bible suggests we estimate how much time we have left on this earth so that we can truly think about how we are living each day. When you think about time and how fast it goes it really does shed light on how ridiculous it is to stay angry and unhappy. I am sure you have heard the phrase . .. “every day is a gift.” and you know what? It truly is . . every single day we have been given is a gift from God. 

How are you going to choose to spend the rest of your days on this earth. Don’t let the little things get to you. Use the wisdom God gave you & make an intensional decision to CHOOSE HAPPY. Only you can choose & build the daily habit of being happy. I leave you with this quote, "To build the habit of happiness, we must have inner joy & peace of mind in our lives. ๐Ÿ’—

A New Fall Style Season 2018

Fall is finally here and I’m so excited.  My home looks and smells like fall but the temps still say summer. Sigh ......I just returned home from California where the weather was around 90 during the day but the 50’s at night so at least their evenings and early mornings felt like fall for sure. I’m throwing it back today in honor of the new fall season with a cozy, fall look that is mostly all still current. They changed up the plaid a little this year but it’s super close. How are you spending the first day of fall? ๐Ÿ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ๐Ÿงก. Fid ff

There are so many great fall style fashion items out there this year.  Here are some hot fall trends:  Camo, Plaid, Leopard and of course Plaid is always here each fall season.
Booties and Boots are also back again but also cute leopard flats and slip on shoes.  The slip on's now come in cute camo and leopard prints!
The VEST is back again this year with a vengeance.  So many fun vests are out there from a puffer vest to a utility vest to a warm and cozy sweater vest.
Happy October and Happy Fall!

Not Your Typical Jumpsuit

I was gifted this adorable black and white jumpsuit this past week. As soon as I tried it on I fell in love.  ๐Ÿ–ค You can wear it with a white tee or a black or white bandeau for a totally different look. Add in a denim jacket or cardigan and it moves right into fall with you. ๐Ÿ–ค I also love that when you need to use the restroom you don't feel totally naked. . . most jumpsuits don't allow you to wear a tee or cami.  If you haven't purchased a jumpsuit yet this might just change your mind about them.   Also, I’m wearing a size small for size reference. ๐Ÿ–ค You will find direct links under bottom photo.

Love One Another

We live in a world where there is a lot of hate but we also live in a world that is filled with those who love one another. ๐Ÿ’— When Jesus lived on this earth He loved all kinds of people. He loved tax collectors, poor people, thieves, prostitutes, children and those who followed Him.  ๐Ÿ’— He even loved those who were dangerous and difficult to get along with.  ๐Ÿ’—And guess what? His love is the same today as it was 2000 years ago.  
Did you know that the New Testament contains 54 “one another” Scripture verses that teach us how to love.  ๐Ÿ’— God calls us to love others, just as He loves us. How do we show love? We do this by forgiving, accepting and honoring others. ๐Ÿ’— When we are full of God’s love it gives us the ability to love others.  ๐Ÿ’—Let’s look at 3 of the 54 “one another” Scripture verses. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—
Forgive one another - The ultimate example of forgiveness was displayed when Jesus hung on the Cross and cried out for those who were crucifying Him: "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” We should forgive others even when they don't deserve it or ask for it. That demonstrates a love that keeps no record of wrongs.
Accept one another To truly love someone, you must avoid trying to change the person for your own desires or purposes. Accepting love is patient and kind, even when we don't see eye to eye.  This however doesn't mean that we are to neglect the holy standard of what the Bible says in living a life of holiness.
Honor one another Honor means to esteem someone as highly valuable. When we put others above ourselves, we are imitating the character Christ.
Loving others isn't always easy, but we can by loving like Jesus loves which means forgiving, accepting and honoring others even those we don’t agree with or even those who we find difficult to be around. Our ability to love others comes from God. 1 John 4:7 says, "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” Remember, it’s so easy to love others when we are full of God’s love. Have a wonderful Sunday.๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

The Mega Powerful Portable Charger

As many of you know I travel often and the one thing I always take with me is a portable charger. I use to take a tiny one with me but it would barely last one charge of my phone. I needed something larger with more power that could last many phone or tablet chargings. 

The other problem I would run into is that there wasn’t always an electrical outlet to use my normal charger to charge my devices so I was so happy when I found a portable charger that is super powerful and will give me hours upon hours of charging pleasure. 

Another place I like to use it is on my back patio where I like to watch a movie on my IPAD or while listening to an audio book. It’s so convenient and even though it’s a little bulkier than a tiny portable charger this big daddy of a charger does a fantastic job and it’s fast charging.

 If you are looking for a portable charger that is turbo powered check out this one today.
