When I was growing up, I remember when someone made a great choice in life, my Mom used to always say, “They Saw The Light!” Meaning, they got it, they were on the right track, and they were moving in the right direction. Moving forward in a positive way in life.
We all have moments, where we feel we are stumbling around in the dark, not knowing what to do, which way to turn, who to reach out too, needing someone to show us the way, feeling stuck, and just frustrated and confused. I like to believe, we learn the best lessons during this time in our lives. We learn to turn the light on!
We have more control in our lives than we think, especially when it comes to going through difficult times. It is our panic and frustration that like to keep us in the dark. The key is to just keep breathing through it all. Remain calm and before you know it, the panic and anxiety will leave. Before you know it, that light will start shimmering, start twinkling and there it is, and nice bright light. That is when you will take the best breath in and the best breath out! Your shoulders will relax back to where they are suppose to be, instead of up by our ears, your eyes will not look like daggers, and the vice grip around your head, will no longer be there.
I love looking forward to seeing the light in different situations. The minute a challenging issue appears, I stop and think to myself, “I can’t wait to see what I’m going to learn now!” Just changing my mindset about a difficult situation, has taught me to relax more. No anxiety!
Give it a try! You may just see the light!

When I think back to when I first became interested in writing, it all focused around listening to music. This is really, how it all started! I also did an extreme amount of reading; books, magazines, short stories, and even jewel case covers of CD’s. I would read, pretty much, anything! As I read, there […]Jacqueline Burke, Author – How It All Started! — Jacqueline Burke, Author

Why is it so hard for some people to believe that you can have nothing but a good time in your life? They say this concept is not reasonable, or by thinking this way, a person may have “their head in the clouds!” I on the other hand, believe that it is worth a shot and our lives are worth it to wake up thinking, that no matter what we do today, we are going to have nothing but a good time at it!
I suppose, when you wake up and the first thought is, “I’m going to have nothing but a good time today”, don’t you think you are setting the intention for a fun day? Wouldn’t it be something, that because of this intention, you smiled all day long? I believe your life is worth giving it a try and just see what happens!
You may even have the urge to dance around the house and even sing as if not one person was watching!
When I look back on my life, I remember being conditioned to think that life is not a party, it is about hard work! So there!! I was left to think, that’s all I needed to do was work hard at a career I had no interest in, and no matter what cost it brought to my life, I had to suck it up and push forward! Talk about life sucking! Then a light bulb came on and that was it! From now on, it was all going to be about what could bring me happiness, what could make me smile and what I was passionate about in my life.
I remember some of the looks on the faces when I actually stood up for who I was and what I wanted to do with my life; total shock and disgust! How dare I do something that could actually make me happy first over making others rich. Yes! I put me first!
What a concept! This also gave me the gift of having no regrets; I am living my life based on me and who I am. You will be amazed at the gifts you will receive in your life, by following what is in your heart.
Your life is worth putting the effort into following what makes you happy! Your life is worth waking up and looking forward to having nothing but a good time!

For the past five months, dressing for comfort, has probably been on everyone’s agenda when they wake up each morning. And why not?!?! I was raised to “dress for success”, but seriously, you can still dress for success and be comfortable. Years ago, if your feet weren’t crammed into 4 inch heals with pointed toes, […]Summer’s Cozy Corner Lifestyle – Dress for Comfort — Summer’s Cozy Corner Lifestyle
Every single day, there are so many reasons to be uninspired, depressed, and crabby. Yet, there are a million reasons to be happy! I’ve seen and known so many people, who just can’t allow themselves to be happy; they enjoy living in the world that thrives on envy, jealousy, gossip, back-stabbing, and just a complete negative existence. Exhausting!!
I look forward to waking up each day, I look forward to smiling, I look forward too seeing the beauty in the smallest thing, and I look forward to seeing my family. I look forward to the color of the sky, the squirrels running all over our backyard, the groundhogs peeking out from their hiding spot, and the joy this entertainment in our backyard brings to my daughters face.
I look forward to looking at old pictures, listening to old music, watching old movies, and reading stories and articles from many years ago. I look forward to writing, I look forward to blogging, I look forward to writing music, and I look forward to all the creativity that floats around in my brain all day long.
I look forward to cooking a healthy meal, I look forward to reading old recipes that were passed down from my Mom, I look forward to doing dishes with my daughter, and I look forward to creating a great dessert for afterwards with a nice cup of coffee.
I know after reading all of that, you get the idea. Here is the thing, I didn’t even leave the house in order to find my reasons to be happy. Our happiness starts with us, starts in our home, starts with our lifestyle, and starts with how we love ourselves.
Remember, there are a million reasons to be happy!
