Count Your Blessings, NOT Your Problems

It is far better to Count Your Blessings than to count your problems.  We all have issues and problems but that’s okay, it’s just a part of Life.  These things should NOT consume us or define who we are.

 

There are far more important things we should be consumed with that are positives within our lives…….ourselves, our family and friends, the simple fact that we are alive yet another day to enjoy what Life has to offer and for the simple fact that Life is more enjoyable when we concentrate on the Good Within our Lives and that surrounds us!!

Do NOT let the negatives in this world make you bitter, do not let them consume you………Look and find the Positives and the Good within Life, there are far more greater things in Life to be Grateful for!!!  Hope you all have a wonderful day…..Hugs and much Luv 2 U ALL!!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

Blessings…we ALL have them

What a beautiful sunrise once again as I sit here enjoying my morning coffee working away on my laptop.  I cannot help but be Grateful for all of the many things I’ve been able to see and do, for all of the wonderful people in my life past and present and for all of the blessings I have been given………..

NO Matter what our struggles are today, tomorrow or down the road……try to remember the good things within your life, the little things that matter and mean the most and not dwell on the negatives and materialistic things that don’t really matter in the end!!  Life’s too short to be miserable and negative…..

I choose to look for the Best in People and for the Best within my own life….I choose to do my best to be a better person daily (not always easy) and I choose to enjoy as much of what life has to offer as much as possible (despite any challenges thrown my way)!!!  I know it’s Monday but I hope YOU ALL have a most wonderful day!!  Big hugs and Luv 2 U All 😊  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts……Robin Robinson

4-1-17 Smile, Love & Appreciate..our lives are different but that’s okay..be the best YOU you can be anyways!!

As this week was spent with family and friends remembering our loved one and others that have already passed away we shared many stories of both good and bad times.  But, we also found ourselves being surrounded with the constant negatives, drama and soul draining complaints by our loved ones being miserable, worrying over the unknowns of  the future, of gossiping about others, of the complaints about their lives and those around them, we were asked for advice numerous times and more often than not asked what we knew, what we had heard and were constantly surrounded and felt as though they were attempting to suck us in to the negatives that they thrive on!!! 

It is amazing to me that they want the best of everything , they want happiness like my husband and I have, they want more out of life but yet are unwilling to change, to try new things, to try and change their surrounds, to try to be positive and to see the Good within their lives with the blessings that they already have but yet they are unwilling to change their negative ways, they are so unwilling and close minded to see how easy it is to start seeing the Good Within Their Lives!!  It really saddens me and hurts my heart and soul!!

This is part of why my husband and I moved a year ago once we became emptynesters….we wanted more and we wanted to distance ourselves from all of the negativity….we wanted to leave it all behind us.  All I can do now is Love Them Unconditionally, be here for them and help them as best I possibly can…..all I can do is encourage them and try to guide them into more positive and happy thoughts but ONLY if and when they ask for it…..All I Can Do Is Live My Life To Be The Happiest, The Most Positive And The Most Life Loving Person That I Can Be!!  Where do you fit into any of my above scenario, are you a complainer and negative or are you the Happy Life Loving Person?!?!?!  Do what makes YOU Happy, surround yourself with Positive People who bring out the best in you and Live Your Life even if you have to distance yourself from loved ones in order to be the Best Person You Can Be!!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson

St. Patty’s Day, a great day and yummy food 2017

Oh My…..Way too much food but yum yum yum!!! It was most definitely a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!  Per the request of my husband for something besides just Corned Beef & Cabbage(he won’t eat the cabbage, lol) so I googled and found a couple new recipes and tweaked it to how I thought they should be, YUM YUM YUM…….

Corned Beef Shepherds Pie……Extra Stout Guinness Pulled Pork Shepherds Pie plus extra Seasoned pulled pork that’s super yummy, a little spicy but slow cooked (on high) in extra Stout Guinness w/onions…yum…yum…yum!!!  Hope everyone else had a wonderful St. Patty’s Day!!!

Where there is a will, there is a way……try New Things as you NEVER until you try it!!  thanks for Reading my Thoughts……..Robin Robinson

Discovering new places, even at 73 years young….Zion National Park 3/20/17

We walked over 6 miles yesterday through some beautiful territory.  Some of our party couldn’t make some of the steep hikes but there was still plenty to see on easy strolls and partial hikes of ups and downs broken up by picture taking along the way.     So awe inspiring at the beauty this Country holds from within that so many have yet to see or some may never have the chance.  Get out and discover new things whenever you can no matter what your age!! Auntie Carlene is 73 years young…..Explore your surroundings and what this great Country holds from within!!  NO Excuses!! There was every race, every body type, every age bracket to be seen throughout the park. Some could easily walk, some were slower than others, some were seasoned hikers, some were on crutches, some were in wheelchairs, some were on bicycles, some were riding on their parents backs…..one thing we all had in common was that we were all enjoying our beautiful surroundings!!    You Have this One life to live, right here..right now so you might as well live it up and live life to the fullest!!😊  Don’t live with “I wish I had” … live with “I DID” every chance I got!!!  Thanks for Reading my Thoughts…….Robin Robinson
