6 Simple Tips to Make Your Life (and YOU!) Sensational…

It’s time for another roundup! Of some of my favorite image quotes, that is…

Sometimes, when life is busy, we could all use a little ‘wisdom on the go’, and have I got some visually-appealing mind candy for you this week!

Trust me, this kind of candy contains zero calories and provides loads of nourishment.

It’s the kind that skips right past your hips and goes straight to your soul!

6 Simple Tips to Make Your Life (and YOU!) Sensational…

1) So often, we want to be perfect, thinking perfection is more interesting, more likeable. Guess what? It’s not!

Being yourself is infinitely more exciting…and relatable.

So, mess up (but learn!), show others your flaws (but grow!), and just be yourself…

And the rest will follow!


Perfection is Boring

2) Speaking of being yourself, whenever you feel like blending in or hiding who you are from the world, I hope, instead, you’ll remember this…

Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide.)

3) Did you ever see the movie, We Bought a Zoo? To be honest, I thought the movie was so-so, but I thought this line spoken by Matt Damon’s character was BRILLIANT! 

I love how this line makes courage more manageable. Thinking we may need to maintain our courage for an entire hour or an entire day? A little overwhelming.

For just 20 seconds? Hey, that’s doable!

4) And if you need a little help mustering up that courage? Remember and repeat this to yourself often. Simple, yet powerful, right?


I Can

I can and I will. Watch me.)

5) Unless you’re part of the one percent (as defined here), chances are, you’ve been tested a time or two in your life. And maybe this has caused you to get a bit down and discouraged.

If it has, try looking at these life tests in a different light, like this…

(Psst…I promise doing so makes for a more joyful life!)


Showing up_opt

(Tweet this –>
Maybe life isn’t about avoiding the bruises. Maybe it’s about collecting the scars to prove we showed up.)

6) I think #6 is one of the hardest things for people to master in life – as it’s so easy (and sometimes automatic) to let our emotions dictate our actions. But we must all strive to do the opposite.

Remember, when you walk out your front door each morning, you have a choice over how to act.

And it is a choice.

Whether you’re feeling angry, sad, or just plain grumpy because your coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, make the decision to put a smile on your face.

Because if you act happy (even when you don’t feel it), you’ll inspire everyone around you to be happy as well.

And happy people make the world better.


How You Act is a Choice_opt

So, enjoy this little something sweet and enjoy your week!

And, remember, with this kind of candy, it’s OK to go back for seconds!
