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.”
The 4 Stages of Expat Island Life
Spring break has come and gone and it’s nearly time seniors!! I’m going to let Elizabeth over at Enough Elizabeth give you, this years amazing, beautiful, intelligent, high school students who are about to be released onto the world some fabulous advise on what not to miss out on in your final days as senior class!
I’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.

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.
- My last run – because I’ve been putting the training and conditioning on my legs.
- 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!
- 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.
- Making dinner last night – because I was tired and unprepared
- The last yoga balance poses I was trying to do – I just can’t get it
- Trying to re-arrange the office – ahhhh nothing fits the way I want it to!
- Write down three things you are grateful for.
- My hubby
- My kitties
- 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?
- 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.
- 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!
- 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!
