News This week
There really has not been much going on this week. However, I did create another blog post and if you missed it you can find it here. I realized that I was procrastinating and not spending enough time working on my personal blog. However, I am getting there now and now is better than never, right?
My husband and I have been working hard trying to get our property ready for our house before the winter comes. It is coming along and I believe going very well. I feel great today and I hope all of you can find something positive in your day as well.
Today I am going to offer you some questions and answers that have been on my mind lately and maybe yours as well.
Q: How can you make the most out of your day?
A: Well this can really vary depending on the life that you live and how much you have going on. For me, I work from home and I am trying to find more writing jobs as well, I spend time with my children and my husband but I don’t seem to take enough time for myself, doing things that I enjoy, such as writing these blogs. I have decided that starting tomorrow things that I wanted to do will go on my to-do list and this way they are right there for me to see. You may want to try to put anything that you want to do on your to-do list because writing things down really can make all the difference.
Q: What can you do if things just aren’t going your way?
A: First of all, things don’t go my way almost every day of my life. However, I have a new way of looking at things. For my life, I realized that most of the reason why things weren’t going my way because I was in my own way. I was causing problems in my own life. Now that I know that (so figure out why you think things aren’t going your way) I can move forward. Now I found a system of organization that works for me. I also started to realize that I can’t control everything but I can do everything with the things that I can control. This has really helped improve my happiness.

More to Follow
Now, while I would like to share with all of you everything on my mind. There is a great writer (yes, she is my sister) who I would love to link out to at this time. She recently wrote an article she said was inspired by my need to balance out my life and I would like to share that now. It is called 3 Tips for the Working Mom: Work-Life Balance. She really is an amazing woman and I am very proud of her. In fact, she is definitely one of the people who inspire me the most to help others.
Like Videos Instead….
Currently I don’t make YouTube Videos but I would like to start soon. In the meantime, for those of you who would rather watch a video about how you can make the most out of your day there is a great one here. It is short, sweet and to the point but offers some really great advice.
Last but not least, if you would like me to send you a personalized letter please fill email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and I will hand write you a letter. If you can just tell me something about yourself that would help greatly. If you prefer that I respond to you via email please let me know that as well. Thank you very much for reading my second newsletter and I look forward to sharing more with you soon.
Tip for the Day: Don’t ever give up on yourself. Even when times are tough, keep going until you find the silver lining. You can do it!
