☺ Law of Attraction tip: Remember to pay attention to your words. If you're not feeling super healthy, or you're feeling sad, or you're feeling down about something, then try to switch the way you talk about it. It's so easy to complain and speak out loud the negative things you are feeling. But our continuous focus on the negative is going to keep it there. So stop talking badly about it, and try to switch your thought habits. Focus on progress, focus on the end goal. I know it can be hard to do sometimes, but try try try, or things won't change.
☺ Make Better Use of your Time! These past two weeks have been so fantastic! Instead of watching mindless television or searching for movies to watch, my husband and I have turned off the TV in the evenings and spent that time on more valuable things. We've switched things around (since he only works 3 days a week) so that more time is spent together outside during the day doing fun things we enjoy, you know, quality time!, and in the evenings we both pursue more creative endeavours (like I use that time for drawing and writing). We also play with our cats more--after all, they are farrrr more entertaining than our TV… seriously, our cats are hilarious! ;) So, switch things around! When you're with people, spend Quality Time with that person, and no guilt over spending time on your hobbies. It's a much happier balance without wasted time.
☺ Spend an Hour on your Hobbies… every single day… at least an hour. Every Day! Yes, I'm continuing on the above mentioned tip, because time spent doing the things you love is absolutely irreplaceable and needs to be done more often. I know you can squeeze in at least an hour! No more excuses! Do something for You!
☺ Talk! I know I've mentioned this one before, but open communication in any relationship is the biggest key to success and closeness, and understanding one another, and resolving conflict, and growing in the relationship. It is probably the single most important key (other than speaking, breathing, and feeling Love). I can be so terrible with speaking up, and I know others have the same issues or else people would talk more. I let things fester, because I'm afraid to talk about it, I don't feel like it will improve, or I'm afraid of offending the other person. Well, festering and not talking is far worse than your expectations of an outcome. Talk, or you'll never move forward. And resent is not a pretty thing!
☺ Have a Good Laugh! Make sure that every single day you have a good laugh. If you're not laughing every single day then that's just plain not good. I won't allow it. Make yourself have a good laugh. It's easy. Just find a silly youtube videos, watch a silly movie, play with entertaining kitties (again, I know, my kitties are just reaaallly funny ;p). Do whatever you need to do but have a good, genuine, deep laugh. It's worth five minutes of your time!
☺ Focus on Your Happiness! Remember that your goal isn't to make others happy, it's to make You Happy. You cannot control another person's happiness, but you can control your own. So make your goal to be so happy that by just being around you, you make those around you instantly feel happier. Be a Positive Influencial force and you'll do far more good than trying to make others happy. ^_^
☺ "For a brief moment in time, you were a moment in someone's life. A mere extra, passing through their thoughts in milliseconds, but milliseconds of their story nonetheless. For every person you've exchanged eye contact with, you have made a contribution to their existence, be it significant or not."
Spend time on Youuuuuu! Never forget that importance! Now get out there and create a damn good day! ^_^
Much love from me to you!
