Wishes, New Days, & Popcorn!

Visualize it: Close your eyes. Get in the zone, and focus solely on your wish – Nothing else!  Another idea is to make a Vision Board. Have you heard of these? Cut out photos from magazines that represent your wish. Or, if you’re super creative and skilled, you could draw, draw, draw! 

Believe it: Don’t let the face of doubt stare you down into a puddle of self-pity.
Don’t let the hand of
negativity hold you down in the sinkhole of “I can’ts.”

Do it: Take action! If you think by sitting on your sofa – remote in one hand, popcorn in the other – is going to make your wish a reality…think again!

“Do the thing and you will have the power.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

(It’s as simple as that.) 


New Day, New Dreams

Today’s a new day
for that baby step
Don’t even look back
just take a deep breath

 Don’t listen to words
that may keep you still
Optimism is your friend
along with your will

 Keep your dreams in view
not allowing them to stray
With fear on the sidelines
You Can Be Brave

 Instead of your heart
wear strength on your sleeve
Stay focused with soul
and in Yourself, Believe!

So, did you make a wish?
If so, what are you going to do about it?

    1. That’s awesome, Ben. I could say the same personally, but in other aspects of life, I have some wishes. Maybe goals is another name for them – keeping my mind working on new things, stepping out of that comfort zone, and so on. I’ll also add that wishes for our country and world continue, too. 🙂 ❤

      1. Nothing I wrote here is in contradiction to anything you say, Lauren, and I think I understand quite well where you are coming from. Oddly enough it all ties up with a couple of poems I’ve written over the last couple of days.

      2. Oh, I know, Ben, and I didn’t mean to imply that if it came across that way. I just wanted to throw a few more spices into the kettle. 🙂 And I do recall some of your recent poems and their similarity to my message also. I always love reading your feedback, although sometimes, it makes me “think harder.” 😀

      3. I am glad you enjoy reading my comments. I think comments should have some useful content, whether of a thoughtful or an amusing nature. When I can combine the two I feel especially satisfied. I also abhor arguments and avoid them whenever possible. (Which I find is almost always. 🙂 ) From having read a lot of your comments in the past few years, on my site as well as on those of others I think you too like your comments to be meaningful and always positive.

      4. I feel the same way, although, sometimes I leave quick comments, but they’re always sincere. Thoughtful and amusing are perfect, and I’ve only had to block one reader for a rude comment (years ago). Not bad for a seven-year run. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Sarah! I think we can’t have enough inspiration, encouragement, or motivation nowadays. We all get in slumps, and sometimes, it’s nice to have someone lift us up with not only words, but also visuals. 🙂 Big hugs and lots of love! 💗💗💗

I appreciate your thoughts!
