Don’t Forget to Love Yourself Too

Love Yourselflove picture quote

It’s Valentines Day.  Whether or not you have that one specific person to celebrate with, you should remember to Love Yourself too.

 Your perspective on yourself can effect your perspective on everything around you. You can’t achieve your goals or even set them if you don’t feel it for yourself.

It truly starts with you. How can you be all the things you would want for someone else if you yourself don’t have them. Loving yourself gives you the building blocks of loving others.

Be the support you need. Be the person who cheers you on. Be the person that loves to look in the mirror. Your opinion matters most and everyone else is secondary. Whether or not you are in that perfect relationship with someone else. make sure that you’re in that perfect relationship with yourself too. If, right now you’re not feeling 100% about yourself, think you’re feeling that way. See what you can change. You would be surprised at what happens next.

That person the mirror is amazing. That person can handle anything. You can do anything. You are important. You deserve love.  You matter. You are strong. You are worth it.

If you aren’t saying any of these things on a regular then change that. Start saying these things. Believe these words.

It’s not wrong to feel good about yourself. People like people who have a positive outlook on themselves.

When was the last time you were with one who you could just tell hated themselves? was it a fun time? was there lots on sighs or just overall bad comments?  Who wants to be that person? Be the person people want to spend time with.  We all have those days that suck and sometimes it will be hard. Just remember everything that we talked about.

How do you show yourself you love you? list some tips; make a suggestion in the comments.

Words of Praise

I have had a wonderful first week. I have the opportunity to be a program called “ Parent Mentors” at my Daughters school. What is this program?

We, the parents, have the ability to be part of one classroom for a few hours a week and help the children learn a little more efficiently. Something we had learned during this first week of training is, ways to praise. Saying “Good Job” all of the time can be boring and almost fake. Here is the list that I was given:

  1. Well done
  2. Excellent
  3. I like the effort you put in
  4. Magnificent
  5. Good Concentration
  6. Marvelous
  7. You’re doing this well
  8. You’re improving greatly
  9. I knew you could do it
  10. I am proud of the way you are working
  11. I knew you could do it!
  12. You are learning quickly
  13. I like the way you tried multiple strategies on this problem
  14. You did a lot of work today
  15. You are really trying
  16. That is much better
  17. Please, continue you’re doing a great job
  18. Congratulations
  19. That’s correct
  20. Sensational
  21. You’re making great progress
  22. That’s the way you do it

At first, after reading all of the words, it seems sort of fake. I had actually had the opportunity to actually apply some new praise in my own situations and there was a difference. Even though some of these words seem obvious, we sometimes forget that there are other words we can use. It can also make someone’s day feel a whole lot better.



I saved a lot of money on Movie tickets in 2016

2016 movies ( that is link on a  quick video i made of all the movies I had see, tickets i had received per Movie, cost per ticket and total cost saved)

and there are the screen shots from Excel.

In May my husband and I had decided that I could finally quit my grueling job and focus on being at home with my girls and to be able to focus more on the site. I was ecstatic. I was so grateful for the opportunity. I did, however, quickly feel like I wasn’t achieving what I wanted and I lost focus. The result was that I applied for a part-time job.

I applied to one place.It was the movie theater. Honestly, it was the only place I applied to. I wasn’t completely ready to give up my already boring life.

I got the job. I started in July and quickly reaped the benefit of free movies!! From July- 16 to December – 31 I had seen a total of 54 movies. this Is about as accurate as I can get. I’m pretty sure I had included all the stubs I had received this year (***I had seen a lot more in total last year, in theater, but these are not included in the count because they were not free and or included in my benefit)

most of them are on my Instagram page—> Instagram.

I cannot wait to see more movies in 2017 and I’m very excited to see how much I will be saving in the future.
