Things I Love About Christmas

Christmas time is well & truly here now & the bah humbugs of our communities can’t deny it any longer – hehe!

This time next week it will be Christmas Eve & children all over the world will be eagerly waiting for the day to end so that they can climb into their beds & lie there with their tired but hope filled eyes, hoping to hear a jingle from Santas reindeer on the roof.

I love this time of year.  The festive spirit, the families & friends coming together, the smell of the delicious food being prepared on Christmas day! The children laughing & playing, the joy on their faces when they receive a gift that they had been wishing for for so long!

Snow (if we are lucky enough to get it) covering everything in sight, making it look like we live inside a giant snow globe. That moment when you come in from the freezing cold outside to a comforting mug of hot chocolate.  Cozy jumpers. The decorations people put outside for everybody to enjoy as they go past their houses or the shopping centers decorated so beautifully. The peppermint candy canes! The way everything sparkles in the light. Paw prints in the snow. Candles…I could go on forever!

I can’t wait to spend some time with the people that I love on the most magical holiday of the year, I just wish it lasted longer because it will be 2014 before we know it!

What do you love about Christmas? 🙂


Just Keep Swimming


The struggle that you’re facing today is helping you develop the strength that you need for tomorrow, don’t give up! The moment that you’re ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens, YOUR miracle. It’s just around the corner,  just wait & see!

I BELIEVE IN YOU, if nobody else does & you feel like the world is against you… I am there with you, encouraging you not to give up & to fight on.

In the words of Dory (From Finding Nemo): When life gets you down, you know whatcha gotta do? Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!

What do we do? We swim swim swim 🙂

Inspire Me

I’m not sure about you but for me personally, when I see inspiring quotes & pictures, it really makes my day. I LOVE them & they have the ability to turn my day around into something great!  …Thank goodness somebody invented Pinterest so I have a place to keep them all 😉 !

So today I just thought I would post a small collection of uplifting pictures & hopefully… even if I just reach ONE person with this post, then I will be happy & glad to have helped 🙂 …

Remember this when you have lost all hope in the world & the people in it…


Remember this when you have lost all hope in YOURSELF.


Do what makes you happy 🙂 speak to those who make you smile!


If you have’t seen “Finding Nemo”, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life 😉 …


CHOOSE to feel happy, find the POSITIVES in life! Sometimes they are hidden…but they are there

Choose Happy

Tell yourself…. 8656e9ecda42eedd67d5f216bc226d33  hehe!

There is so much beauty in the world, you just have to find it!




Start thinking positive & watch how your world changes before your very eyes! You’ll be happier & better equipped to deal with some of the bad things in life. It really does work 🙂

Have a great day/evening depending on where you are & remember to SMILE! You feel instantly happier if you smile…try it & see! xoxo

I had to post this last one as it made me laugh earlier today…
