Join me..

"Trust yourself, Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement."
-Golda Meir(1898-1978)

I want to do something amazing this week. Will you join me. It will be exciting. It will be motivating. If you will join me in this venture leave me a comment and people can follow your link to your site. There will be prizes.

You have a whole week to do these things. If you want let's take two weeks.
Because I want it to be fun, and not yet another chore.
Here it is:

1. I want you to remember what it is like falling in love.

Rent the movie that makes you remember that feeling. Or read the book that makes you remember that feeling. And then write about it. Just a paragraph or two it doesn't have to be a novel.

If you have never been in love then write a small post about what you think it will be like when it happens, and what you want it to be like.

"Follow your heart, but be quiet for a while first. Ask questions, then feel the answer. Learn to trust your heart."

2. If you live near the beach I want you to make a sandcastle. Remember how fun it was doing that when you were little? Take a picture. If you don't live near a beach, You come up with a fun alternative.

3. Say No to something you don't really want to do. And be creative. Like I am sorry I have been exposed to elbowidis. It is an affliction that makes my elbows very sore. I want to hear your best most creative excuse, and so does everybody else.
(I am not saying do this everyday just take a break from what is wearing you down)

4. Dress up. Wear the clothes that make you happiest. And go somewhere fun. Even if you have to go alone.

And finally, make a list of 5 goals that you want to achieve in the next 6 months.

"We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you don't know where you're aiming, you don't have a goal.
My goal is to live my life n such a way that when I die someone can say, she cared."
-Mary Kay Ash

On our darkest days we have to fight for those bits and pieces of happiness. We have to seize the moments of our life. We are like burning candles that often get blown out before our time and we need to be happy

I haven't been this excited about anything in a long time. But I am about this. Looking forward to this venture with Nita

P.s I hope you have time to listen to this song because it will make you want to dance. And he is pretty easy on the eyes.

Update: Today I rented Shakespeare in Love, and Sense and Sensibility and plan on watching one tomorrow and one the next day while doing laundry.

Anybody have their movie picked out yet?

Count me in Nita! I've been thinking of different things to get my life going again. I don't live near a beach, but I will think of an alternate activity outdoors. Like you, I'm trying to put a lot of sadness behind me. It's time to really live!

I love this idea Nita. Haven't had time to implement it this week and that's really sad when I think about it. Do want to do it though.
