This Sunday’s Blog Share – A to Z Foods

 

A to Z Foods: A list of 26 foods that I either love or hate, one for each letter, a challenge posed to any readers who would like to participate.  I saw this at this-is -my-truth-now.  Maybe it’s the foods your mom made you when you were a kid… oh… Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there! xoxo

 

As a follow-up to last week’s fears from A to Z, this week we’re focusing on the foods we either love or absolutely hate (whichever you prefer), continuing the trend of the seventh day, ending the week on Sunday, as a list (we know I love them) of sorts that provides more in depth knowledge about me.

Rules

  1. Pick something that starts with that letter and add it to your own list. Don’t think about it… just come up with a couple ideas in under five seconds and choose the best of the bunch.
  2. It can be a hate or love, but not a specific restaurant or brand! I chose 13 things I loved and 13 things I hated. I’m all for equal opportunity!
  3. This week it’s foods you either love or hate… but next week will be something else. Add in any extra comments if you need to explain.
  4. It’s a fun game, but if you are nominated and DO NOT want to participate, you don’t have to. Just ignore it! Totally OK.
  5. You may not have been nominated, but you can totally participate by following these rules.
  6. Post it as a reply on the person’s blog where you found it. Also post it on your own blog as a new post.
  7. Should we use a tag so we can see all the responses? Suggestions… AtoZFood
  8. This may not go anywhere if there is no participation other than me. And that’s OK. The 365 Daily Challenge was about me to start, so I cannot expect or force anyone else.
  9. Have fun and get to know your online friends. Tell us when you post your 26 items.  Thanks!

This Sunday’s Blog Share (a lil late) – The 4 Stages of Expat Island Life

HNCK8961

Keith and I are hoping to move to Hawaii for at least a couple years (maybe sooner than later) and so I’m drinking up all I can about island life and relocating to a new area. And also on our list for maybe someday is to move to an island outside the USA. My mentor Amy Silverman moved to Puerto Rico to be able to live an island lifestyle and to me it breathes perfect life. I’m an island girl at heart, and the beach is where I want to sink my toes into and the ocean calls my name!

So I love seeing blogs like this that will help prep us for island life and maybe living outside the USA some day (we want to live a lot of places for short amounts of time until we find “home”)! Thanks to Women Who Live On Rocks for this great blog!

“Island expat life teaches you not only about a new country, but a lot about yourself.”

Sunday Blog Share – Random acts of kindness movement

Fotor1227164335I’ve been a RAKtivist for a few years now. And I usually don’t publicize my random acts. Many of which are either through volunteer work, or donations but I think it’s a crucial piece of personal development and social development if we take part. Of course people do kind things all the time on their own without having a group, or movement to tell them to do so. But the act of “joining” in and of itself serves at that little reminder as we start to get bogged down with our own busy days to stop and take a moment to reach out in some small way, big or small, to make a positive impact in the world we share with one another.

 

So I ask you to check out This Sunday’s Bog Share and begin your own movement to sharing positivity and kindness as you walk through your busy days. Share the love

the art of being fabulous is calling to motivate us all towards a “random acts of kindness” movement on Fridays.

Sunday Blog Share – How To Be A Positive Thinker

 

HNCK8961

I stumbled across the blog, Discovering Your Happiness who had written part 1 about How To Be A Positive Thinker. I think working on self improvement is huge, not just for myself or selfish reasoning but because of what I put out into the world and how my vibe affects the world around me.

I used to be nothing but a negative thinker. My glass was always half empty. But that’s exactly the point, my glass was staying always half empty. And of course I always blamed that on outside factors and never looked within.

I’ve been working on that though. And actually my blog is part of that ongoing personal positivity project. So I love coming across other blogs that are putting out something that can bring focus to changing my perceptions and focus towards good energy.  So I’m participating because small steps like this can brighten my horizons and create a more positive spin on life 😌

  • Write down three things that went well & explain why they went well.
  1. My last run – because I’ve been putting the training and conditioning on my legs.
  2. Playing cornhole for the first time – because I stepped out of my fear of doing new things in front of others and just did it!
  3. Putting on a shirt I bought that never fit because it was too tight – because I’ve been working on better nutrition, found a good program and am being consistent with it (no more DIets are ever needed), and have lost 8 pounds!

 

  • Write down three things that didn’t go well & explain why they didn’t go well.
  1. Making dinner last night – because I was tired and unprepared
  2. The last yoga balance poses I was trying to do – I just can’t get it
  3. Trying to re-arrange the office – ahhhh nothing fits the way I want it to!

 

  • Write down three things you are grateful for.
  1. My hubby
  2. My kitties
  3. Good health

 

  • Read back over what you wrote, sometimes what seems  super-dramatic in your mind will suddenly seem much more minor when you actually read it out. Was it really worth all that negativity?
  1. Dinner ended up not all that bad. I was just grumpy tired. My hubby ate it all up and enjoyed it and so did I.
  2. The balance poses I will eventually get. I weak legs that are getting stronger and as I practice more and gain leg and core strength, I WILL get them!
  3. The office is too small for all our stuff. It’s not the end of the world. I could get rid of stuff, or just find ways to make the room “feel” bigger 😀

 

Thanks for the good read and personal development exercise Discovering Your Happiness!
