    My Life Is Really Changing!

    Ever since I started to follow The Gabriel Method, not only have my eating habits changed, but my relationship is also growing in ways I never thought possible. I feel rejuvenated when I wake up in the morning and have sound sleep at night. I go to bed early and wake up early...

    Two days. I can do two days.

    Anybody can do two days, right? Two days of trying to work and still squeeze in preparation for the invasion of my increasingly difficult mother. Two days of said increasingly difficult mother. Then two days of his increasingly difficult mother who comes in a package deal with...

    I've been focusing on

    whether things have a positive or negative undertone to them. I've started eliminating the things that seem on the shadowy side, 'cause ain't nobody got time for that. My friends are all fascinated by the shadowy things, especially around this time of year. I hear about all the...

    Positive Thinking And Health

    I have always been a positive thinker even when things seemed difficult or even tragic. In other words, life is full of ups and downs for everyone. We all loose people and pets we love. We all have issues with our finances at one time or another. Many of us have gone through...

    Positively...

    I absolutely positively believe that being positive in ones life will help you get through even the toughest of times.  I am positive that this attitude is what has helped me walk the path that I have walked rather than giving up and throwing in the towel.

    I Like To Keep This In Mind Everyday

    When you feel you got no courage you can choose to fill your mind with negative and limited thoughts that will intensify that feeling, or you can use your thoughts to break free from it. Your thoughts have an incredible power, they determine how you see yourself and how you...

    I believe I've come to a decision of sorts.

    I admit this may waver during extremely bad times, but just this moment it feels reasonable. I'll focus on me. Making myself happy. Living. Enjoying. Being the person I want to be. No more shrinking in the corner because I might annoy him. No more not doing something just...

    Positive thinking is great

    but we must be careful to do it in such a way that it doesn't justify a life of complacency.

    It Works~

    I believe in positive thinking because low points suck. But nothing sucks more than being at a low point and thinking that it'll never get better while making no attempt to challenge that thought. Challenge your debilitating thoughts. How you think about your life shapes it, it...

    Today don't think about what others may

    or may not believe, don't worry about being right or wrong, have people's approval or not, being judge or not, liked or not liked. Wouldn't you feel free if you didn't care about what others though? Be YOU don't worry about anyone else, they'll survive :)

    I'm tired. LOL tomorrow it's off to Iowa.

    Change the way you look today.

    Why waste time? It doesn't carry over the next day. It doesn't earn interest. Take every day and every moment, and make something of it. Make something positive!

    Our thought process has a HUGE impact on our

    How we think affects our daily lives.

    When we think, we attract. Yes it's true. Have you ever read THE SECRET? it's where everything lies on what they call as The Law of Attraction. We may not get it at first but it really works. When we think about having a good life, surely it will come. But of course, everything...

    a beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset,

    when you wake up take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy, the moment you start acting like life is a blessing, i assure you that it will start to feel like one.

    Do you ever just stop to listen to your

    thoughts? If you have a spare moment (5 mins is all you need), grab a pen and a piece of paper, draw two columns and label them; positive and negative. Make sure to find somewhere quiet to sit where you won't be disturbed so you can observe your thoughts. Don't judge or...
