Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will. ~Zig Ziglar

Exactly what I strive for every single day.

Positive thoughts.

More smiles.

A day doesn’t go by that my hubby and I don’t share a good laugh.

Enjoy your day and remember to smile.

Your smile will give you a positive countenance that will make people feel comfortable around you. ~Les Brown

I know I am never too old to get outdoors and enjoy this beautiful sunshine and take in a good long walk.

I know I am not too old to go to the gym and work up a sweat.

I know I am not too old to take good care of myself.

I know I am never too old to appreciate the goodness sent my way.

I know I want all good things to come your way as well.

Enjoy your day~ Smile~ Be grateful~  :)

Any Direction

“You have brains in your head.

You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose. ~Dr. Seuss


It’s Friday and finally we get a reprieve from all the heat we have been experiencing here in British Columbia, Canada.

Whatever direction you choose this weekend, be safe and have fun.

 We enjoyed a fun night this week celebrating my hubby’s birthday along with our grand daughter on the same day. My homemade chocolate cake was yummy.

Happy Friday to you all and have a wonderful weekend.

A Smile on Her Face

Whenever I go for my long, brisk morning walk I see this sweet lady.

I always give her a wave along with a big smile.

In return I see her eyes sparkle as she waves and smiles at me.

I pass her several times and every time I get a big smile.

Now this lady speaks no English.

We communicate in our own language.   :)

I think we understand each other, as I feel it in my heart.

When I showed her my phone and asked her permission to capture this photo she nodded yes, and when I showed her the photo, again I saw her big smile and she gave me a hug.

It doesn’t matter what we look like, we are all special and unique.

I wish to think of her as my new friend on my walking path.

God does put people in our lives for a reason.

She warms my heart and I am sure I warm her heart as well.

Share a smile~


We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.

Get Some Today

Studies show that a 10 minute walk immediately BOOSTS brain chemistry to increase HAPPINESS. Get your feel GOOD endorphins today.


Another HOT scorching day in my world. Too HOT for this girl!

Thank goodness I got out the door earlier this morning.

I am thrilled to mention it is 7 weeks today since my vein stripping surgery in my right leg and I was able to do some running.

I was able to run.   😉   

I did more brisk walking and some jogging.

Today I managed, 9.12 km/ 5.7 miles.

All this exercise is the best thing for the circulation and healing process in my leg.

I am back at the gym as well.

It makes me happy.

The ‘feel good endorphins’ are sprinkled on this girl.

So, hopefully you can get outdoors and grab some ‘feel good endorphins’.

Have a really nice day.
