Saturday’s Motivational Quotes -October 10, 2015

Image result for Saturdays' Motivational Quotes
It is up to me to be happy. No one can do it for me. It must come from within me. Working on it.

Good Morning.
Danny is working this weekend so for us, today is just another day.
So for those of you that are also working, try and keep a smile on your face. It does help to make the day a bit brighter. Strive to achieve what needs to be done. Do it because you want to, not just because you have to.
Then when you get home, enjoy the time you have. If you have a family…..spend some good quality time with them. If you live alone, then kick back and enjoy that book you have wanted to read. Why wait for your day off to read it? Get started on it now.

I would love to start my day with a chai latte with extra cream and topped with whipped cream. Since that requires a trip to the store, I’ll have to put that on hold for a while longer.
Enjoy that first sip. 

Don’t be afraid to LIVE LIFE. Don’t let anything hold you back from your dreams. 

Danny may be tired of certain aspects of his JOB right now….But when he is working
he can’t help but give it is all. Everyday, he pours his love of the park into what he does, And it shows.
I haven’t been as good as he is. It is a struggle for me to keep things going here on the home front.  I don’t enjoy cleaning the house. And it shows. There is NO LOVE PUT INTO IT.
It shows in our meals and our snacks. I love cooking and cooking for him.
I just need to work on the rest.

I haven’t been happy and that also shows no matter how hard I pretend otherwise.
I do try to put a smile on my face. I try and look good for Danny when he walks in the door after work.
When I am happy, Danny is happier as well. His mood really does depend on mine. 

The Sunshine has been lacking a bit this summer so when we do have it , we can’t help but being a bit happier. It is easier to smile when it is sunny outside.
It is easier to spread the joy.

It is up to me to be happy. No one else can do it for me.  I have been working hard on this and it is getting easier.
What are you working on?
Happy Saturday.
Love Sarah


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

        1. It certainly is. It’s HUGE for me.
          I never had to think of it before my marriage. I was on top of the world. Mentally.
          Always…even when I was sick I was usually good. I was happy.
          I can be very happy with Danny. I need to be happy for me now.
          Yaz, It is so hard for me to get that. I know It in my head. In my heart it is not there yet.
          Mentally, sometimes: I feel like a teenager /early 20’s female in the body of a 56 almost 57 year old.
          Emotionally mess up.
          Together in so many ways but Messed up here.


  1. Hello my friend….sweetie only Danny can make Danny happy, and only you can make yourself happy….is it nicer to be around someone happy, of course, but don’t do it for Danny, do it for you, what would make you happy??? start with a simple question, make list if you need to….start to work on them…even if it means big changes…your deserve to wake up happy and to be happy all day….I understand recovering from your illness is difficult and limits you, I hate house work…I always make it into a challenge for me, how many minutes can I unload the dishwasher and then reload it, can I beat my last time…LOL like I remember…but it makes it a little more interesting…same with vacuuming and all the other nasty four letter words I like to call housework…LOL and then when I am done I am all the happier….sometimes if I am home alone, I will spend 10 to 15 minutes every hour doing something…then the rest of the time is for me….before I know it its all done….be happy my friend….kat

    1. Kat , I read everything. 2x’s.
      I am getting there slowly. Doing more for me. Your idea timing your chores sounds interesting.
      I spend about 10 to 20 minutes every hour doing something as well. Occasionally I go over an hour on here. Hard not to.
      I have been happier. Or at least better. The weather is helping there. Still not cooler enough to OPEN the windows but it is a lot better outside.
      Kat, thank you. Love Sarah


    1. It does make a huge difference. If you POST it for the world to see…How can you not at least TRY?
      I works for me when nothing else has.
      Until this blog I never shared my personal life with anyone like I do now…(And I share too much) except with a few angel moms in private on Facebook. I hate sharing as much and Yet, It is what is saving me right now. …Posting. Sharing myself and Danny, Good and the bad is enabling me to SEE more clearly. Plus all the feedback is helping.
      I was dying here bit by bit before this outlet. Now I am helping myself, my marriage and still hopefully helping others at the same time.
      Sorry for the BOOK. I tend to go on and on sometimes.


  2. My dear Sarah. Please be a little kinder to yourself today. You begin and end your post with saying no one is responsible for our happiness but us. Yet in your post you seem to be saying. Danny’s happiness depends a lot on you. Perhaps Danny needs to make those happy choices on his own? Don’t put that all on yourself, hon. Hugs… Just an observation.
