Help someone else!

Even when you are feeling down, one of the best things you can do is help someone else.β˜πŸ‘β˜

I’m sure you have a neighbor, a friend, a relative who could use a hand. #justkeepyourdistance

Have a co-worker who could use some emotional help, call them!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

The Universe!

There is always someone who could use your help. πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

When’s the last time you picked up the phone and called someone who would love to hear from you during these trying times?

Make someone smile, better yet, make them laugh. 😍😍😍

They will treasure you forever and they will never forget you for doing it #quarantine2020

And the sheer act of helping another will change your whole disposition, which no doubt, will lift your spirit and make you happy! #staythefhome

Smile!  The simple act of smiling will make you feel better.

It’s a scientific fact😊😊😊😊

I mean, you’ve been in your livingroom for the past two months, it’s not THAT bad!

Double bonus points if you make someone else smile (it’s like kindness, throw that shit around like confetti!)✨✨✨



Our new normal😷😷😷

Granted, it’s taxing on the nerves this whole situation.

However, eating and sleeping all day will NOT make you feel better.

Besides, Summer WILL be here before we know it, and you will want to fit into your Summer clothes.

Even if it is to sit in your backyard😍😍😍


I find so many people are afraid to shine.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

As if they need permission (hint; you don’t).

So if that’s the case with you, you have my permission to shine!😁😁😁

Like a big, beautiful motherfxcker πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Trust me,  you most definitely will feel better about yourself!☝☝☝

Stop comparing yourself to other people!  ☹☹☹

You are uniquely you, own it!πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

As the saying goes, “comparison is the thief of joy!”

So stop doing it.  TodayπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Don’t worry about who’s grass is greener, worry about your own grass and grow a God damn field of lilies.πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡

Just remember, this ‘thing’ is not going to last forever.

And you will get to go out and be who YOU want to be #day358323oflockdown

You live everyday.

You only die once.”

My good friend Helene told me that whenever she’s not having a great day, or she’s feeling a little down, she goes out and pulls weeds from her garden.πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯ 

And she said, she always feels better.🌼🌼🌼

So, whether you are pulling weeds or planting flowers, mother nature has a wonderful way of connecting us back to her, and her soothing qualities.🌴🌴🌴



Get up, dress up, show up and NEVER give up!  

I cannot emphasize this one enoughπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Before you walk into your livingroom, take a quick look in the mirror and ask yourself, “is this the image I’ve chosen to show my family who I am today”?

Looking and feeling your best are the keys to self-confidence, and when you have self-confidence, you can do anything!πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

Even when you have to #staythefhome 😷😷😷

Now is the time to start thinking about all those BIG dreams you’ve had and never acted upπŸ¦„πŸ¦„πŸ¦„

You will most likely (hopefully) never have this time again, #useitwisely


Stop looking for happiness outside of yourself! 

YOU are the only one who can make YOU happy.πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

Other people can add to your happiness, but you are in charge of your happiness.☝☝☝

And here is BIG reminder,  stop giving the keys to YOUR happiness to someone else.

Your happiness, your responsibility!☺☺☺

How much exercise do you get?πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

“Most” people say, not much ;-(

And that’s a terrible thing.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Listen, I’ve lived that lifestyle for over twenty years back when I was in the corporate world.😣😣😣

I get it.😞😞😞

You work all day, come home, eat dinner, sit down and watch TV for hours on end.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

Totally uninspired ;-(

Here’s the thing though.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

That lifestyle makes you; fat, bored, disinterested, gives you a foggy brain, and puts your sex life in the toilet!😳

You have to get out and get moving. πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Join a gym, go for a walk, sign-up for a Zumba class, park at the other end of the parking lot, take the stairs…you get the idea.

And while you are at it, drink water, lots of it!

Nothing will age you faster, and make you feel “old” than not taking care of your body! 

In case you haven’t heard, it’s the only place you get to live while you’re here!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ


Have you heard the phrase, “you are the sum of the five people you associate with”?

So if you are hanging around with a group of toxic people, guess what?

Your chance for being happy and productive slowly goes down the drain.☹☹☹

And no one wants that ;-(

Instead, hang out with people who want to see you shine!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

People who make you feel good!πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

People who are out chasing their dreams, and want to see you achieve yours.

Those are your people!πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

Stay away from people who suck the happy right out of you.

You know who I’m talking about…those people.☝☝☝

Run, don’t walk, and stay far away.πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™€οΈ

Have fun!  

We’re all so busy these days.

Doing God knows what.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

That we forget all about having fun sometimes.

Remember when you were a kid?

Before you learned how to worry πŸ˜‰

When all you had to think about was what kind of fun you were going to have that day?

Well, start adding fun to your schedule.😁😁😁


As much as you can, add something to your schedule that is actually FUN.

Something that makes you excited, like a kid.

Make your soul happy!😁😁😁

And I think I need to start taking my own adviceπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

You don’t have to wait for the “big” things to celebrate! #everydayisacelebration

Bonus hack!

And one of my personal favorites.πŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

If they aren’t nice to you, then, they go away!  And I don’t care “who” they are.


Because you are destined for GREATNESSπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆπŸ‘ˆ

That’s a wrap!

Remember, it’s going to be ok.  We will get through this together! #wegotthis

Talk soon,

Patricia <3 always
