Can you believe today is my one year anniversary at tablechatterco.com? I want to thank everyone for their support over the last year. I’ve enjoyed writing and I hope you have been enjoying the articles.
This year I’m thinking of changing things up a little. Since the site is called tablechatter, that gives us the freedom for all kinds of conversations. On my Pinterest site, the lunch lady, I get a huge following on my inspirational quote board. So, today, I thought we would touch on a quote and if you would like to comment or add what you would like to visit about that’s great!!
The quote is by Stephen Covey, and it applies to everyone. It goes like this: I am NOT a product of my circumstances. I AM a product of my decisions.
If you are stuck thinking there is no way out of your current situation or you will never get out of the rut you are in, I have found that instead of saying things like NEVER, CAN’T, or WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME, turn your thoughts around. Believe me, once you get your mind to think positive your life WILL turn around!
One thing I have learned in my life is NEVER say NEVER! Seems like whenever I think something, whether good or bad, will NEVER happen again, it has a way of happening again if you let it. Also, if you say I CAN’T do this or that, you are setting yourself up for failure. If you want something bad enough, you CAN!! As for asking WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME….stop and think. Are you SO SPECIAL that good or bad things won’t happen to you? So? What do you do to turn things around? I found this exercise helpful.
MAKE A LIST OF THINGS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY
MAKE A LIST OF THINGS YOU DO EVERY DAY
COMPARE THE LISTS
It’s a new year, a time of renewal. Clean out all that unwanted clutter physically and mentally and start the year on a POSITIVE note! You are not stuck, there are options. You CAN do anything you set your mind to even if it’s cleaning out a closet! WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO ME? Most likely there is going to be a new door opening, a better door. You might have to work a little harder to get to the door, but, it’s there!!
Don’t get caught up on the negative problems of the world. It’s ok to be happy!! Put a little fun in your life! If you like online shopping, maybe you would like to click on Amazon, or one of the my other affiliates!
Make it a point today to do something that will make you smile!!
ENJOY THE DAY
