We live in a world where we lose things. Things break and things die. People in our lives move on or pass on. Opportunities come and go. You reach a certain point in your life where you finally realize that your time is minimal in this world and you need to make the best of every moment.

In my 30’s and finding myself for the 3rd time, I realized something. The world is still full of beautiful things. I can find love better than ever before. I can find work in the craziest places. Money will be less of a problem for me, not because I make more but because I worry less about it.

Taking such an aggressively positive turn on my life has had its challenges. Though every one of those challenges I feel myself getting stronger. Through all the ups and downs I realize, even more now, that everything happens for a reason and I am more aware of that then I have ever been. Things are happening all around me and all I have to do is take advantage of them. Find what I want in life and take it.

I know normally I write as advice but I am learning too. These things are happening to me right now. Changes are happening in my life right now. I worked so hard to be on a cruise ship and something as simple as allergies has pulled me away from that. But without that experience I would have missed so many things in my life. I look at all that has happened and realize I would have missed all of it had I not tried this. My time working on a cruise ship was a lesson in my own life and a blessing to my future. I am finding myself; I will find love, and I will find my future direction. Most of all I am learning that when I do find something I need to go after it now. There is no more time to wait, just take what you want from life. Take that chance, go all in. If it was not meant to be then the adventure begins for you to take a chance on everything else that comes your way.

If you see an opportunity take it. Follow the signs in your life, follow your desires and interest, follow your dreams and positivism will be right there with you the whole time. Love your life and life will love you back. Embrace change in your life and take everything you can from every moment of it! If you don’t take a chance you will never get what you really want in life. You can still be positive when life gets really tough, but when an opportunity comes by to make it better you have to take it!

Winston Churchill Famous Quote Friday

“If you’re going through hell, keep going”

Winston Churchill 

Winston was a British statesman, soldier, journalist, historian, author, painter and so much more. He was an inspiration during political and war times as well. Winston had issues with his speaking. He stuttered, and had a lisp, both of which he overcame with time and determination.

Winston went through many challenges in his life, as do any of us. The outcome of life’s challenges define who we are, who we want to be and who we will be in the future. If you are going through hard times in your life, if you are going through hell, you have to keep going. You have to do what it takes and you will in time get where you want to be. When all seems hopeless you need not give up, fore the ends of all your journeys are merely rewards with new more amazing ones. You will make it thru everything if you tell yourself simply that you can.

You will encounter challenges and if you do not give up you will succeed. This weekend, smile through your challenges don’t let them beat you, no matter how big or small they are. Is there anyone with unique challenges that would like to share a short story of how they overcame them?

Please share this blog with those who are going through challenges or anyone. Encourage them to just keep going! Have a great weekend and thank you in advance for sharing my blog. ( don’t forget you can utilize the links below to share)


Over thinking is something a lot of us do. Some of the time a better way than over thinking is going with the flow of things in life. Recently I have been taking many risks in my life, taking those chances. The reason is I am just going with my instincts. Opening up many new paths  for myself, bringing light to the unknown be it good or bad. I have discovered so much about myself, others and the world around me in the past year alone. The one thing that remains constant is that things are always changing! New things, bringing back good old things, good things or bad things, challenging things, old friends or new friends. Everything is changing with ourselves as well.  You have to keep going in your life, keep taking chances keep fielding changes. Instincts are not an answer for all of life’s challenges, but the chances you take from the challenges are always a learning experience.

Going with your gut instincts may not seem right at the time but if you put effort towards what you seek you may find that your gut instinct is right! If you don’t go with your instincts you will end up just playing the “What If” game with yourself. There is no gratification with what if!  Going with your instincts can give your mind some rest, it can solve problems and also you can discover something new you love to do!

When was the last time you went with your instincts?  When one of the things you chanced turned out to be good, how much happier were you afterwards? How much better do you feel? When did a chance you took turn out bad? I guarantee you learned something from it! Other people have great ideas how to live our lives but each one of us is unique. Sometimes you have to trust your instincts and go out and challenge the world.
