Things you can control…


QUOTE OF THE DAY: I can’t control everything…but one thing I can control is my attitude and I am going to make it sure it’s a good one! 


I was thinking again today about some basic things you can do and control in your life.  I am sure there is more to add to this list, but read this article below for some good information on some things you can actually control in your life.

For instance, you can control what you put into your body.  You can control what you eat.  You can control what you spend your money on.  You can control your exercise routine and you can control how much sleep you get. 

These are some basic things you can do to have a good attitude and live a healthy life. 

Do you agree or disagree with the things in the article?  What would you add to the list?  Let me know.  I would love to hear from you.


1) Today, I am brimming with energy and overflowing with joy.
2) Happiness is a choice. I base my happiness on my own accomplishments and the blessings I’ve been given.
3) I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends

Just be yourself…


You can NEVER be like someone else! Just be yourself and you will find that you’ll be much happier that way and accomplish more as well.  ~ Surgeo Bell

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are amazing. You are doing a great job at life today. You are rocking it today.

Dr. Seuss put it like this:  “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

There is only one person with your unique and special fingerprints,
DNA, smile, and personality.  You were made with unique gifts and mission in this life.   

“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” Zig Ziglar

If you are still alive today there is hope.  Hope for a better tomorrow. Hope for today.  Hope for choosing a better attitude and a better day.

And you never know, you could die tomorrow, so let’s live well today. 

TGIM! Let’s make the best of it!


1) You are alive for a reason.
2) You are alive for a purpose.
3) You have the freedom & power to create the life you desire.

Your Monday thoughts…


Your Monday morning thoughts set the tone for your whole week. See yourself getting stronger, and living a fulfilling, happier & healthier life.
~ Germany Kent

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Let’s setup this morning for a great week. 

Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

That’s a good thought right? 

Be thankful.
Be happy. 

Walk forward with confidence into this brand new amazing day. 

Get your exercise in. 
Be bold.
Do hard things. 
Be nice. 

Thank God it’s Monday!  TGIM!

Let’s have a great week!

From Matt


1) I am my truest self and that is enough
2) My true self is inherently beautiful
3) I deeply accept my wonderful and unique self. 

Believe in yourself…


QUOTE OF THE DAY: Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.  ~ Norman Vincent Peale

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:  Well here we are at another Monday.  This Monday happens to be the first Monday of the month so that is extra cool right?  Happy Monday! TGIM! 

I hope by sending you this it helps a couple of people out there.  I had several people join my 21-day thankfulness challenge and that is awesome.  It is keeping gratitude daily on my mind.  

I have been doing this now for 18 months.  That’s about 78 times that I have written a post every Monday.  Going with what the quote says above I believe in myself, I believe in this blog or email.  I believe you can change your life by changing the way you think.  I believe you can do most anything you put your mind to.  So let’s have a great month.  Let’s refocus and start strong on this Monday.  On this first Monday in July let’s do the basics.  Eat healthy, move your body and drink lots of water.  

If you want to laugh a little as well, I wanted to share a fun little podcast that I have been enjoying that’s a comedy podcast called Don’t make me come back there.  I needed another funny podcast to listen to because Tim Hawkins stopped doing  his after 100 episodes.   


1) My life is filled with an abundance of goodness.
2) I am so grateful for supportive friends and a loving family.
3) I am blessed.
