Monday Melody and More About My Blog

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

I thought I would take a bit of time to share more about my blog with you all!  My hope is that whoever visits and reads my blog will feel inspired, uplifted, encouraged...or perhaps something will make you smile, laugh or just see the bright side of life.  There is so much negativity in life that I am hoping to counteract it by offering positive, encouraging and humorous things that enable us all to see the positive and good things that life has to offer.  I post some recipes and health related items because for myself, I think that both mental and physical health work hand in hand.  For example, if we eat junk food every day and all the time it can affect not only our physical health but our mental health as well.  At the same time, I feel that how we feel about ourselves or life in general can affect our physical health.  Thank you so much for being here and thanks so much for your kind comments, it means so much to me.

The videos I have selected for this post are:

How to be positive - Say "I can" instead of "I can't". Smile more.  Be optimistic.  Remember you are in charge.  Be thankful.  Forget about regrets.  Do nice things for others.


Sometimes you just gotta put on your sassy pants and move on!


Be grateful for every second of every day that you get to spend with the people you love.  Life is so very precious.


Right now, this very second, wonderful things are happening all over the world.

May the month ahead be filled with an abundance of magnificent miracles, blissful blessings and splendid surprises.  Welcome July


Animals love and suffer, cry and laugh; their hearts rise up in anticipation and fall in despair...they feel.


Old, peeling and crusty paint has to be scraped away to make way for a fresh coat. (unless you get a "bargain")  Letting go of the old in life can sometimes feel like being scraped and sanded, but it's just prep work for bright new hues!


Be the peace you want to see in the world.






From this day forward, I'm going to let my burdens go and have faith that things will start to get better. It's going to be a long road ahead, but I will get there.


I choose...to live by choice, not by chance.  To make changes, not excuses.  To be motivated, not manipulated.  To be useful, not used.  To excel, not compete.  I choose self-esteem, not self pity. I choose to listen to my inner voice.  Not the random opinion of others.


Everyone is gifted - but some people never open their package!  Live, believe, inspire...




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.
