Last week’s inspiration prompt for Inspire Me Thursday was “Positivity”.  I had made my daily to-do list and wrote on the last 2, dream and breath.   My husband stated that I should make a list of all the things I want to do on a daily basis, but sometimes am to busy, stressed or tired to think about.  So this is what I came up with.

* Read a good story.  I love reading and if I can do just a little everyday, it makes me feel good, helps my brain to stretch.

* Focus on the positive.  This is a big one for me when I’m stressed and at work.  I must remember this always.

* Take deep breaths – We breath all day, sure, but do we deep breath? Deep breathing relaxes and calms and gives you much needed oxygen to energize the body.

* Dance a little– I can be so uptight sometimes, and dancing helps me to let go a bit. If a little music is playing, I almost can’t resist.

* Laugh a lot – Laughing (and smiling) is contagious! My husband is the best at getting me to really laugh. It sure can turn a bad mood around instantly.

* Sing, hum, whistle – My grandma used to sing, hum or whistle when she was doing stuff around the house.  It always made me smile. How could you not be happy while whistling a tune?

* Go for a walk – Get fresh air, listen to the birds, smell the flowers and take a good look around at all the beautiful trees, colors, etc..

* make something ~ Be creative.  This is something I HAVE to do everyday or I get grumpy!  Even if it is doodling on paper at work, it gets my right brain functioning and happy.

* Dream Big –  Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only
plan, but also believe.”  I love that!!

* Be Happy – Because you have a choice. Everyone does.

I’m making little 5 x 7 inch prints out of this to put in my shop, just in case you would like a little reminder.  They are perfect for putting up on your inspiration board, inspiration wire or in a small frame.  OR, make up your own list yourself and hang it somewhere you can see everyday.  Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to have little reminders.

  1. Love it, i so agree. I do make lists almost every day and it’s so rewarding when you can go back and tick things off knowing you have acheived them. I am reading ‘The Secret’ highly reccommend it to anyone and everyone, the laws of attraction there is alot to be said of it and being grateful for the things we do have. Have a lovely weekend 🙂

  2. What a great list–and so pretty!
