Whooeee!

I’m just so PROUD of us!
Some of you may have wondered if you’d make it through 2020 with your sanity intact. (Mine is still a bit questionable, lol.)
But your spirit is resilient and like I’ve told you,

you are amazing my friend!

Give yourself grace, darlings. It ain’t over yet.

But for sho ’nuff you have learned some coping skills and your creativity and problem solving skills have grown so much.
See? You are awesome!

Love y’all truly, and so appreciate each one of you.

You Can Choose to Start Anew

So here we are…a new year, a new beginning. Many of us are worn out. Some of us had too much to bear in 2020. Some of us actually had some really good stuff happen this past year. However you feel, just know that you do have choices. It may not feel like it, but you can decide right now to have a more grateful heart, to show more kindness, have compassion, and especially grace for yourself.

We are so very hard on ourselves. We expect so much. And our spirits get worn out. So I ask you, please try–try to love yourself even more, try to allow mistakes and sometimes downright failures, try to know that you are doing the best you can in life.

You really are terrific! Don’t compare–that robs your joy.

Try to do something that fills your well.

And please know that I am here rooting for you. This year may be a lot like jumping off a high dive, not knowing if there is water in the pool! We really do not know what’s ahead.

Let’s make a pact to support each other, okay? Reach out to people, even when you feel like covering your head. Because when one of us soars we ALL rise!!

I really do appreciate all of you, you who take the time to read my sporadic posts. Life sure does take us on a journey, huh? I just hope that I can be a part of your journey, offering encouragement along the way. Because THAT is how I thrive, knowing that I have offered a word of comfort, inspiration, or encouragement to someone.

Take care, my friends. My thoughts are with you as you begin this untold journey.

Love and big hugs,

Passionista Mimi

It’s So Simple

Be kind2

It really is simple.

Everything we might choose for our goals boils down to being kind:

Be kind to yourself.

Be kind in your relationships.

Be kind to the earth and animals.

Be kind to others.

Be kind in your words.

Be kind in your thoughts.

Be kind in your deeds.

I think that about covers it all.

May you have a wonderful year of kindness.

So what do you think? Let me know below.

Lots of great big sparkle hugs

and blessings in the new year.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I want to encourage you to LIVE Loud and Make it COUNT this year. Now, even though I’m naturally a loud person, that isn’t what I mean here. What I mean is to live your life with passion, gusto, meaning!! In everything you do….LIVE it. IN the moment. Do not become dulled by the busyness, by the stress and worry. Dullness may seem to help you survive, but you miss out on so much that way. I’m not one to talk about silver linings, but I DO know that in every single situation there is at least ONE thing to be grateful for.Image

There have been many times in my life that that one thing is what kept me going. And in recognizing its presence, I discovered even more! So Passionistas, I encourage you grab hold and live your life LOUD!

Love and hugs, Passionista Mimi
