Our Top 10 Ways To Beat Those Winter Blues

After having a few weeks of warm weather, we woke up this morning to some very unexpected COLD, GLOOMY weather. Ever since then, I have been feeling kind of down, and unable to shake these WINTER BLUES. Up until today, I had high hopes that this cold weather was behind us, and have been excitedly looking forward to Spring. But today really knocked the wind right out of my sails. 

It comes as no surprise that most people feel down or depressed during the winter months, and it is actually a very common problem that affects a large number of people. It is called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). If you think about it, most people are stuck indoors during the winter months trying to stay hidden from the wintery, gloomy, overcast weather outdoors. And we all know that when we are trapped indoors for long periods of time, we aren’t able to get much needed fresh air, sunlight, and social interaction. All of which are essential to a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Well, if you are like us….trying to fight the winter blues, we have a few solutions to help brighten your moon, and get you back on track! Here are some of our top tips for a better, and maybe even enjoyable winter for you and your entire family!Continue reading

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

How To Be The Wealthiest Person In The World

ABSOLUTELY CORRECT! If you are abundant in all of these, then you are the WEALTHIEST person in the world!

We purchased a little decorative sign many, many years ago that says, ” I don’t care how poor a man is; if he has family, he is rich.”

That sign hit home for us because we didn’t have 2 pennies to rub together at the time, yet we felt like we were ON TOP OF THE WORLD because Patrick and I had each other and 2 babies (at the time). We were just happy being together and it truly felt as if life couldn’t get any better.

All of these years later, we still have that little sign in our home. We actually just moved it today to a new shelf in our bathroom so we can see it more often and be reminded of this simple, yet important truth. Sometimes it is nice to hold onto those sentimental things from our past so we can see how far we have truly come.

Be BLESSED, sweet friends! <3
