Life is a Special Occasion!
Today, Blah, Blah, Blah Day, just might be the blahest day of the year. The intent of this day is to do all of the projects and things that people have been nagging you to do. This may include quitting a habit, losing weight, or working on home projects. The Honey Do list or job jar is a top target for today.
Blah Blah Blah Dayis the opportunity to stop procrastinating and get to grips with all those stalled projects and broken promises right now!
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
A laugh a day keeps the blahs away.
Sometimes the blahs can sneak right up on us, but thanks to an article I read, I have to some Blah Busters tips to share with you today.
#1. Celebrate the good stuff. Looking on the bright side might seem trivial, but shifting your mindset to positive thoughts can have a huge impact on your overall attitude and energy level. Attitude is everything.
#2. Boost your energy. Stretch, jog in place, or climb some stairs. Get moving and shake off any tension and stress. Act like a kid, run around and play.
#3. Read a good book. Escape from the real life chaos for a bit by losing yourself in a fun and absorbing story.
#4. Appreciate something beautiful. Open your eyes and really notice the beauty that’s all around you. Have an attitude of gratitude.
#5. Do something nice. Step outside of yourself to help someone else. Nothing extravagant or huge, just a kind gesture from your heart. Remember it’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.
Did you know that the word blah is actually listed in the dictionary? Webster defines it as a feeling of dullness, boredom, lethargy, likened to a winter’s day . Not all your days can be good ones, but they don't have to be blah either. Not every day is a good one, but there is something good to be found in every day. Look for it and you will find it.
Hope your all have a fantastic Friday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
2679. for Spring, it chased my winter blahs away

2681. for a carmel cappuccino, best find at Aldi this week
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
