Happy Thursday People!

Hello my friends! I wanted to write one more blog about the Liebster award. When I was notified about the award I thought to myself, why would I get an award. First off, I have only written five or six blogs since taking a blogging course called Blogging 101. I am still trying to figure out how to use WordPress so I can’t be very deserving.

I will say I was happy to be nominated from a person who I believe has a very good blog. I was to nominate six blogs for receiving the same award and write out eleven questions for them to answer. Odd! I did need to answer eleven questions from the person that nominated me, I thought, okay I will do what is needed and go on. If you read my last two blogs you would see I was a little stressed about the procedure and the questions I was asking of the nominees. After sending out the questions I felt very bad subjecting anyone to even answer, and I apologize for asking them. Lucky for me, no one answered them and I am good with that.

I felt from the beginning like I should decline the award, but I thought that would be rude. I had a hard time just picking six blogs and then having to write those questions. So that is my story and I’m sticking to it! I like the blog of the one that offered me the award and I like all of the blogs that have even just peeked at mine.

So on Friday I will resume trying to write content to help people with their goals and their dreams of living a positive healthy life. I feel better already just writing this post and I hope I do not offend anyone. I want to earn my stripes, one blog at a time!  Love Jim


Nominations For The Liebster Award Part Two

Well, as you know I have a problem with my posting about this award. So in part two I am putting out the questions for my 6 nominees. Here are my questions;

1. How long have you been blogging?

2. Do you have other blogs that you would like to share?

3. What state or country do you live?

4. What do you sometimes dream about?

5. Do you collect anything as a hobby?

6.  What you blog about, is it your passion?

7. Do you feel like you are a good friend?

8. Do you use any other social media tools, Facebook, Twitter etc?

9. Do you enjoy what you do?

10. Do you do a lot of traveling, and if so where have you been?

11. Do you recently take the Blogging 101 course?

Now the deal was that you answer these questions and send them back to me, and then you name 6 blogs

that you would nominate and write 11 questions for them to answer. I know this is a little different way to do

but it might just work. I believe this is a good way to meet other blogs at the same time. We will see how

this goes. Jim

Nominations For The Liepster Award

Hello People! Well I opened an email last night and found out that I had been nominated for a Liepster Award for my blog. First off, I was amazed that I even could be nominated for it and I felt a little fuzzy about it. Me, and award for my blog! I was nominated from Michelle at a wonderful page called called “a little bit of everything” and had instructions on what to do.

As she could now tell you I am not very good using my computer for the task I was supposed to do. I answered 11 questions she wrote for me to answer and I am supposed to nominate 6 blogs that I like and then write 11 questions for them to answer.

No problem naming the 6 blogs and they are as following:

1. American Writers Exposed


3. Send Sunshine

4. Muhammad Ashhar

5. kathrynsully

6. patchworkrainbows

So these are the pages that I nominate! I have been only a couple times to each page but I know these a

are very good pages with great content that I’m interested in. Now I have 11 questions that I wanted them

to answer. The problem I have is just like I can’t get my writing on the right spacing, I am not very good with

with computer skills. I believe I write what I want to say but as you can see, not very good. I know someone

will help me with this and until then I will hold back my questions. So I want to say to Michelle who

added me for this award a big thank you, and to the 6 I have named, congratulations on this honor.

You will now find me in the doghouse waiting for help! love Jim

I’m On My Own Now

Well, I have been doing a great course called Blogging 101 and now it is over and I feel like everyone has gone away. I must write as often as possible and hopefully someone will see it. I have read many great blog’s in the past few weeks and am very impressed with all of them. I sorta feel like I might bore some people and they will go on and blog to the great blogs in the sky.

I know I have value for many to read and I will try to get more than the eighteen people that I’ve met so far and they will tell their friends and they will tell their friends and so on.

I am a Very Positive Person! I believe I can motivate You to make your life like the one you sometimes dream about. All I ask is that you stop by from time to time and I will post some things that can make life better, not for everyone, but as good as it can get. I also have a Facebook Page by the same name,so check it out too!

Spring is here in tiny Delaware, by the beach and I am excited about it! So lets have some fun and share some stories and enjoy what we are here for. We can make each other smile and laugh and maybe change someones life!                                    Much Love, Jim

Happy Thursday People!!

I can almost smell spring in the air except for some freezing rain and snow showers coming tomorrow#$%. I know that soon I will be out in my yard starting my vegetable garden and getting into some flower arranging.

Having a couple bad vertebra’s in my neck stops me sometimes from doing all of things I want to do, so I have to adapt. My garden is above ground and some are in 5 gallon buckets so I don’t have to reach down to the ground.

Same thing with my flowers. I plant everything in pots that I make and place them around the yard for color. I love color! This is not my usual thing to write on my blog, but you can adapt to almost anything which allows you to do everything you want to do. About 6 years ago I found out about my neck and found that I also have Osteoarthritis going on too. It has also limited me with what I can do. But a couple years ago I decided that I will not let this keep me down. When I’m in the yard I work hard and cut the grass each week and do as much as possible. Now sometimes I will pay for that with a couple lighter days , but the reward is getting it done. It is worth all of the pain. I have always been a very optimistic person and I have ramped it up with everything in my life.

I have lost 100 pounds in the last 2 years without any exercise. I decided one day that I was fed up with my weight and started just eating less at each meal. I still eat what I want, but less of it. My success comes from not willpower, but from deciding to use positive thoughts and affirmations to change my life. Three years ago I did not care so much about flowers, but I decided to change that too. I also decided to help others with their goals and that has made my life even more exciting. You can do anything you want, if you just decide to do it, and believe you can do it! You make the choices, You can make the change! So get ready for spring and do the things that you sometimes dream you can do. Do It!!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Me and You

Happy Monday Bloggers! It is the start of a new week and it is also a good time to put thought to your goals for the week. Actually it would be Sunday when you should make a list of things you want to accomplish in the week to come, but why not now! I think when you set up goals for you to do each day that sometimes things will come up in your day and you will not be able to get to everything. Things always seem to come up, you know! I like to set weekly goals because  you have 5-6 days to make things happen. Goal setting can be frustrating  when you don’t succeed. It is a mental failure that you don’t need. This does not mean you can take a day off because you have the week to do it, but that if you set realistic goals with a solid plan of action you have a little breather time in between. Doing this will help you with those small successes that are important to you mind, and you need those to stay on track. So this is what you do. Get yourself a notebook or journal and start writing your goals down for the week. Then on the first page write down the things that important and need to be done. Then put these in your book and put days down for your priorities and make the most challenging goal for the first day. Then write down what needs to be done the next day and the next. This can be to get to the gym or to eat healthy foods or go for those runs. Whatever it is you need to do, get it done this week. At the end of the week write down what you got accomplished and get ready for the next week. And try to take off at least one day a week to recharge. You will need to do that so everything does not blend together. Does this sound like a good plan? Just do it!! Have a Wonderful Week and let me know your thoughts  Jim

Do You Enjoy Your Life?

I am going to get back into blogging again and I was reading this one from the past and thought this is a good way to start! Enjoy and please leave me some comments.


Happy Sunday! I want to share a small post with you today about You. You were born to do great things in your life and do what you want to do. Most people just go thru the motions each day; they wake up to a clock and don’t eat properly before rushing out the door, then they set in some traffic to get to a job they really don’t like. They barely make it the eight or nine hours then go home and eat and then watch TV and then repeat. Their weekends are time for having a little fun, drinking a few drinks and maybe grilling out and then more TV. Then it is Monday! Does this seem about right? This is not what you were born to do! It starts with getting up. What you do every day is what makes the difference from living the life I…
