How can we change our lives for the better? We all want to have a perfect life or as close to perfect as we can. That is not always the case, as a matter of fact it is seldom the case. Circumstances and people get in the way. I use to think that my family was dysfunctional. Now I know that most families have some sort of issue going on, no matter how wealthy, professional, smart they are, somewhere in their family there is some one or something that is off. No one has a perfect life. It just doesn’t happen. We all have issues, they are just different for everyone.
So what can we do to realize our dreams and make our life more like we want it to be? This can be a daunting task for sure but if we take baby steps, make changes little by little. You would be surprised at what you can achieve.
I took this idea and translated it to other things as well. I wanted to walk daily so instead of thinking to myself, I don’t have time or I don’t feel like it I made it a point just to go out and walk around the block~what could it take? 5 to 10 minutes? but I realized that as soon as I walked out that door and took the first step of my plan, it was easy, easier then I thought. So instead of just walking around the block I did more each day, some days I didn’t feel like doing more and that was OK too.
Just this weekend I knew I had to give my kitchen an all over cleaning.. it was a big job and I had been putting it off for a while. So I decided to do my “ little by little trick” I would clean just 1/4 of the room, one corner~ top to bottom, as I started and finished I decided to tackle another corner before I knew it the whole kitchen was done, just like that little by little.
Start with a list, for your personal life, your work, your relationships, your goals. Take a baby step to change what you want to change. A baby step everyday. You can do this, if it is too much, reduce the time or task, make it manageable make it work and DO IT!!!
You will be surprised at how much you can accomplish by doing this and how many changes, good changes will come your way.
Live life in the moment and take it little by little, you will be where you want to be in no time!
I am an optimistic and happy person.. I would rather see life as exciting and challenging and enjoy every minute than dwell on the negative .. I love to cook and have my family around .. big family dinners and celebrations are always held in my home.. I have a huge table 10 feet long ..filled with food and family.. I have learned many of my mom's old recipes and try to recreate many of the dishes I grew up with .. I am teaching my grandsons to cook .. they love it! I have a wonderful,happy, loving relationship with my husband. He supports me in everything I do and is my biggest fan and taste tester.. he loves all things Italian too!
