A daily dose of Wonderful and Altering fun!

Everyone needs a pick me up every now and,well..I get one each and every day..Yup..someone to tell me just what I need to hear...exactly..when I need to hear it.

I signed up for these email notifications a while back..All it is..well,..just some words to remind you of who and what you are..isn't that great!!

Leandra calls these.."Notes to Self"..and I think they are just wonderful.

These are some that I have received lately..

"sometimes you forget you were born to be a hero.
go be heroic and awesome and YOU."

"edit your life as you go,make revisions,omissions and additions,people,things,beliefs,

"Consciously fill your world with energy that supports you..It starts with you"

I told you they were powerful..
if you want to sign up for this daily dose of wonderful
go to


Having fun altering a wee bit of this and a wee bit of that.

What needs Altering in your Life?
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover".- Mark Twain

    Have a wonderful day friends!!

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by
