Let’s start today off with some postitivity!
Often we are stuck in the past, thinking about what could of been, how we should of said things or done things different. The truth is, it is in the past for a reason, we either learn from it or let it us back. Today, take whatever it is that is weighing you down use it to your advantage to help you back up. Sometimes, whenever I feel overwhelmed and stressed I take 10 seconds and look in the mirror and take 5 long deep breaths. It may sound so simple but it works! There is beauty in the little things, believe me. In the end it will only be you, so why not take 10 seconds out of your day and make eye contact and let yourself know that, YOU GOT THIS! Inhale slowly and exhale slowly and you will feel just a little bit better.
I start every morning mediating and just taking the time to focus on my breathing. It gets me started and for the rest of the day, I have a positive outlook. I strive to be a positive person, because I truly believe what you put out in the world is what your energy is. If you’re always negative, it will show that you’re unhappy.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is enjoying this nice weather! I’ve been gardening a lot outside and Im trying to find some affordable ways to decorate. So I’ve been on Etsy a lot! I recently found a shop that paints on bricks. I think it’s such a cute idea! I’ve ordered a couple to put around my garden. If you guys are interested, I’ve added the link below. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SilverwoodTreasures
I’ve been gardening a lot recently. I find it really helps with my anxiety. If I’m just at home not doing anything, I start being fidgety and tend to bit my nails, so I feel like I have to always try and keep myself busy. So for right now, I am adding new plants to my garden and decorating around them. Once the bricks come in I’ll add a couple pictures of how they turned out!
Any ideas on some affordable garden ideas?? Drop some comments below
Love always MnR

Hope everyone is enjoying their day!
Just a reminder, take some time out of your day to focus on the things that make you feel good! What makes you smile? What do you do to makes others smile?
It is amazing what one facial expression can do to change your mood and other around you.
Do it. Right now. Just smile. For no reason but to feel good. Even on bad days try and crack that smile. You will be amazed by how you end up feeling!
“A journey of a thousand mile BEGINS with a smile.” -Bernard Kelvin Clive
Throughout my experiences, I’ve realized that no matter who you meet, everyone has a story. My sister and I both worked at bagel stores, where we dealt with customers all day, and trust me we have gotten some rude ones. But, instead of reacting in a negative way, I try to smile and be as positive as possible. It’s always important to remember that everyone that we encounter has a story, whether it be bad or good. That even with something as simple as a smile, can make anyone’s day better.
I try to remember that when I meet someone, I take in account that they experienced this day differently than the next person I will encounter. Whether it be a huge promotion at work, a death in the family, or maybe they burned their tongue on their coffee. No matter what the day may bring, it’s nice to meet people who bring good energy.
“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind always.”
I nominate these three bloggers! And check their blogs out!
“Psychologists have found that even if you’re in bad mood, you can instantly lift your spirits by forcing yourself to smile.” source
Smiling has been proven to change your mood, relive stress, boost your immune system and even lower blood pressure. Even when you’re having a bad day, faking a smile can have the same effects.
When I’m having a bad day, my cat can make me smile no matter what! I feel like she senses when I’m sad and just comes to me and gives me kisses. (They’re the best!) Aside from my cat, I find that talking to friends or family can always make me smile, listening to music and being blessed with a roof over my head and food to eat. Once we realize that the small things are truly reasons worth smiling for, we become happier and appreciate life more.

What is this? What do we have here? Have you ever seen anything more beautiful than this?
I think not!
If you guys don’t already know, we love food. We love cooking, baking, and most importantly eating! 😁🤗
Pizza is our beyond favorite food. Sometimes peppers and onions, maybe buffalo chicken and hey, can’t got wrong with just plain cheese!😋
Today’s a day to just kick back and applaud yourself for yet another week done! Call up some friends, go to the movies, or even just relax at home and order/make pizza. I know that is what my sister and I will be doing.

These are just some tips I try to remind myself each day, to stay positive. I still have a hard time staying positive when the world around us seems to be falling apart, but I find that if I remind myself everyday about the good, there is still hope.
- Understand that some things come and go
- Practice curiosity (Don’t be afraid to try something new, even if its something small and simple.)
- Go outdoors and embrace the beauty in nature (When you open your eyes and truly look around, the world is beautiful)
- Enjoy your meals (My favorite and hardest thing to do, I tend to eat really fast and am alwaysss the first person done hahaa, but I am really trying to savor the moment and enjoy every flavor because lets face it what’s better than food?)
- LAUGH, LAUGH, LAUGH (I make myself laugh,so that is really easy for me to do )
Hope this helps, lets us know some of your ideas

Thinking about way to de-stress and get your mind off a certain topic?
I recently picked up this anti-stressing coloring book and I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome.
“Proven beneficial for your mental health, coloring is one of the simplest ways to de-stress and engage the mind in a positive exercise. All designs encourage a meditative sense of focus while you color, bringing you in a relaxed state.”
The book is filled with one hundred black and white illustrations that include: whimsical sea creatures, elegant abstract patters, and my favorite, elaborate mandalas.
These are some of the intricate drawing of the books:
I definitely recommend this technique and if you know any other ways to de-stress, please comment below and share!

Am I the only one who woke this morning wanting to feel FLAWLESS? (All hail Queen B)
I was in mood for something that I knew would keep me going throughout the day.
Black tea with some milk is always my go to (AHH-MAZING) Another one of my favorites is Green Tea with a little touch of honey. I find that, not only it keeps me awake, it helps me clear my mind and kind of resets my thoughts. There is something so comforting about holding a big mug and drinking a hot beverage. (especially with a scone!)

And always remember to stay positive.
