Taking the First Step

"Faith is taking the first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase. " ~~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

How true is that?  Making a new path for yourself or trying something new can be so scary.  Change can be intimidating.  But when you know in your heart that something bigger and better is out there for you that first step towards the "new you" is so critical. 

With this being said, making money, supporting your family and putting food on the table is a critical and necessary thing.  Working is a necessary evil and most people are so unhappy with what they do for a "living".  Is this really a "living"?  You should love what you do to make that "living" so much more enjoyable!

Some of my favorite things about life are the people in it.  Having a loving family and exceptional friends, that make life enjoyable!  So this venture with the Finding Freedom Team (www.Family1stNow.com) has been my first step to making a "living".  Connecting with others, making new friends and enhancing lives...you can't get much better that that.

What do you enjoy most about life that could make-making a "living" so much better?  Are you ready to take that step?  Do you have faith in what you love most?

Think about it.

A Ch-Ch-Ch Change...will do you good!

I was hanging out with some wonderful friends yesterday at lunch and we were talking about how things change.  Sometimes for the better and sometimes not, but all things change and evolve.  We also talked about those that complain and cry about their situation, or pine after what others have.  If you don't like something, do something about it!  Don't complain, make magic!  If anything, just change your attitude.

It is amazing how just changing the way you think can change the world around you.  Before it was raining and it ruined your day, today it is raining and it is helping the grass stay green and is making soothing sounds on your window.  It's all about how you think.

Positive actions are contagious!  Spread it!

Til next time!

Inspiration of the Day

I have a quote of the day love affair.  I love being inspired and feeling like I have a "mantra" for the day.  It helps me focus.  The quote I saw today was:  "Anything you could ever want or be you already have and are."~David Russell, I Heart Huckabee's.  This really spoke to me today.  Most people, especially in America want more, spend too much and focus on what they don't have.  But why can't we see the beauty and strength that we already have.  The motivation you can find, even when you feel like you have none, just by knowing you have people who love you, great friends and a roof over your head should make you want to be better, to improve.

Some may look at that quote and say, "No, Tianne. How would this motivate you to want more when this implies you shouldn't want more but to appreciate what you have now."  I say, yes, appreciate what you have but strive to improve your outlook and focus on surrounding the beauty that you have with positive influences. Be it making money, etc.  So yes, you should want more to make the things in your life that you love and are better and beautiful.

Be open.  Listen.  Learn.  But appreciate what you have now, not what you don't.

Happy New Year!

Well, I survived 2010!  I'm really glad I made it through safely.  It was a year of ups and downs for sure.  I got married, lost my grandfather and almost lost my sanity!  But I know that 2011 will be even better...even though I started the year off with a sore neck and shoulder and a cold!  I still have faith.  There are some big changes a-brewing this year and I will be glad once those are done. 

Happy New Year all!!

My resolution this year is to write more!  BOOM!
