Friday:) 5 Day Fulmination Fast Challenge ~Please Join Me

11 Feb

“If you put negative thoughts into your mind, you’re going to get negative results. It’s just as true that if you put positive thoughts in your mind, you will be a recipient of positive results.” – Lou Holtz

“Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.” — Tony Robbins

I’ve been having some weird dreams lately, so last night I listened to some Catholic affirmations before bed, and concentrated on happy thoughts. I woke up with this weird but nice dream. In my dream, I emailed my sister and said, “ Let’s go on a 5 day Fulmination fast. No negativity, no bad mouthing, no trials and tribulations, only positive happy talks, texts and emails.” So when I told her about it when we talked on the phone this morning, she thought it was a great idea. So, we started today.. Won’t you join us?

It seems like the 5 Day Challenge is a very popular theme. I just got done doing the Tony Robbins 5 Day Breakthrough Challenge, and it was very insightful. I’m not 100%gung-ho on the jumping up and down and screaming in your living room aspect, but I did a little of that. 🤦‍♀️ I’ve done a 5 Day Writing Workshop Challenge. And back in the day, I remember doing the 5 Day Mayo Clinic Diet.

5 days seems to be a good number to start. Not too many days to discourage and not too few to not encourage.

Maybe you’d like to join the challenge and invite a friend or family member. Let’s stomp out negativity right at the source. US, YOU and ME.

There are a lot of wonderful positive people out there. We just need a little reminder, now and then. ❤️

Saturday:) Some Positive Posts for Today

5 Feb

‘A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you.” Joyce Meyer


I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of reading about and hearing all the negativity going on in our world. And, I don’t even watch the news. It’s not even so much about I’m tired of it, it’s more like I’m rather disappointed.

I was looking over my Facebook pages today, and I’m still seeing nasty comments, sick jokes, mean cartoons, and a lot of negativity. I saw a post that caught my eye, so I shared it.

How do we expect a beautiful kind world if we treat other people terribly?

So, I decided to look for some positive posts to brighten my day and share them with you…

That must be my problem. 🤦‍♀️
No electrons allowed! They are too negative!
Ok, this one was just funny.

So, let’s have a positively positive day out there, my friends. ❤️

Sunday Salutations and Other Sentimental Stuff

21 Apr

So much craziness is going on in the world, it’s refreshing to hear the voices of people who just want to enjoy life without being inundated with mayhem 24/7. One of my friends, Gail, posted on her Facebook page that she was sick and tired of it. Well, good for her. I strongly believe the more violence and terror you see, the more it effects you. That’s why I try to post mostly happy or uplifting stories, except of course, when my dogs drive me nuts. Here’s what Gail had to say, and I totally agree. Then my friend, Carolyn, commented with such a lovely response about my writing.


Carolyn wrote: “Yes, I agree with you Gail. Funny, that is what Fr. Michael’s sermon was on this morning. We are inundated with news now as compared to when he was young and one could sit with a cup of coffee and read the newspaper or turn on the TV at your own decisive time. My one comment was we could sit around the radio and listen. Then spend time looking at the beauty around us and thank God for those times also. I have been thinking a lot about Toni Armenta Andrukaitisitus lately. As I was perusing my facebook there were all kind of hate messages against and for our president, against the bomber, etc. Then I came across Toni’s post. She sees something good every day in her life and writes a post about it. So refreshing and fulfilling. Thank you Toni!”

I am honored that so many people are influenced by my positive and humorous writings. If we all shared a little sunshine instead of gloom, the world would be a much better place. Have a great day, as the old annoying cliché goes!
