You gotta get up. You gotta get out. You gotta get up, get out and live it.

Sometimes you need a little push to get back on track. I was reading an article in "O" magazine by Dr. Phil about harnessing your personal power when I found it.

"Live Passionately," Dr. Phil writes," Figuring out what nourishes you and then being disciplined about doing it- that's real power."

This is where I am in this new week. Identifying what gets me up in the morning, scheduling the time and keeping to the plan.

is part of the mix, part of the magic.
Being busy, having a lot to do helps me immensely.
Getting sleep, interesting concept considering I was up at 3:30 to make a trip to the airport, but it makes me joyful to be rested.
Doing things for somebody else, friends, family, always good incentive. It makes me happy too.
And doing what I said I would do. The expression,"The road to hell is paved with good intentions." Illustrates my psyche. If I can't/won't/don't do what I said the guilt is hellish.
SO get up get busy and enjoy. All with a sprinkle of glitter.

See my fresh for the holidays website. There is more information for ordering your own glitter portraits and Christmas cards.


  1. Just what I needed to read! "Doing what I said I would do". Really having trouble with this right now. I am doing what I think I "should" do but not what I want to do or said I would do. Thanks for sharing this.
    Loving the glitter!

  2. Love the Dr. Phil quote. I'm not generally a fan of his, but dayum. That quote really hit the mark for me. I think I need it tattooed to some easily visible part of my body. :D

  3. Thank you Dianne and Effy. Sometimes it takes several voices to receive the message you are trying to hear. What is that???oh a message saying "must fix dinner" eating makes me happy too. I appreciate your comments:)

  4. Well said Beth, I like the sound of your plan! Wonderful Beach House too!

  5. Wonderful way to start each day!

  6. I love that little house, Katherine, it is in Ponte Vedra, north Florida on the Atlantic. Wish it was mine:)
