Motivational and Life Quotes



Tis the season to catch a cold.
I hate being sick.. as does everyone.  But when I'm sick,  it's TERRIBLE! My husband avoids me like the plague.  I have hardly any energy for my kids,  but yet I have to muster up as much as I can for them.  All I want to do is lay around and hide from the world,  but you can't do that once you're a mother. 

I need a distraction. A pick-me-up to help me keep going while I'm sick. 
 I want to share some of my favorite inspirational,  and life quotes to help myself get back on my feet and get stuff done even though I don't feel like it. Here are some of my favorite quotes. 



“Get busy living or get busy dying.”-Stephen King

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.”-Helen Keller




“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.”-David Brinkley


“Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It’s quite simple, really: Double your rate of failure. You are thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn’t at all. You can be discouraged by failure or you can learn from it, so go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because remember that’s where you will find success.”-Thomas J. Watson


“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”-Lucille Ball




“It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”-J. K Rowling


“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson



“Life is trying things to see if they work.”-Ray Bradbury

“The No. 1 reason people fail in life is that they listen to their friends, family, and neighbors.”-Napoleon Hill


“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.”-Steve Jobs





I hope these quotes have helped you as they have helped me.  Please share so others can get some inspiration in their day.

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.
