Every Day

Detail Close Up #1

We have all had what seems to be a bad day. One of those days that seem to last forever. One of those days that seem to never end.

Detail Close Up #2

Actually our days are never filled with bad things or good things. Our days are simply made up of ‘things’. How we perceive these ‘things’ will determine if they are bad or good.

“Every Day” by Debi Payne Designs

Even if our day is filled with things that we perceive as bad, there is always something good in that day. We just have to allow ourselves to see the good.

Next time you are having what you perceive to be a “bad” day, take a minute to find something good. I promise, it is there, you just have to take the time to see. When you do, celebrate the good and the bad want see so bad!

Drama All Around

Detail Close Up #1

I must admit, I don’t like drama! What strikes me funny is how many people say that they don’t like drama, but they are the ones in the middle of it and stirring it up.

Detail Close Up #2

I have gone to a movie, paid for a ticket, went in, sat down and started watching the movie. I didn’t like the movie, so I got up and walked out. I am the same way when it comes to drama.

Don’t Tell Me

Detail Close Up #1

Have you ever told somebody that you wanted to do something only to have them give you the long list of all these reasons you shouldn’t? They can tell you every worst case scenario as if it is based on fact and there is no other option.

Detail Close Up #2

I call these people “dream stealers”. Dream stealers like to tell other people how to live their lives based on how they perceive life and the world.

Just because those people can’t perceive anything beyond their believe system doesn’t mean that you have to too.

Don’t tell me that the sky is the limit when there are footprints on the moon!

Be Someone

"Be Someone" Detail Close Up #1

Have you ever been in a crowd of people, these are all people that you really enjoy being with. Everybody is having a really good time and glad they are there.

"Be Someone" Detail Close Up #2

But then there is that one person. That one person that is either loud and obnoxious. Or maybe they are that person that knows everything about everything and they want to make sure you know it. Or maybe they are that person that only sees the negative in everything and they are going to make sure that everybody else joins them in their doom and gloom.

"Be Someone" by Debi Payne Designs

“Be Someone” by Debi Payne Designs

We are great at recognizing these people. Yet, we have trouble seeing when we are that person ourselves.

Be more aware of who you are. Be someone that you would want to be around. If you want to be around happy, positive people, be that person first and others like you will be drawn to you.

Right now, if you find yourself around loud, obnoxious, negative thinking, know-it-all people, perhaps that is because that is what you are, thus that is the type of people you are drawing to you.

Be the type of person you want to be around and you will be.

Collect Moments

Collect Moments Close Up #1

We all have things that we want. We make list of things that we want. We make vision boards of what we want. We make goals for things that we want.

Collect Moments Close Up #2

We spend an enormous amount of time thinking about all the things that we. We make plans on how we are going to get the things that we want.

"Collect Moments" by Debi Payne Designs

“Collect Moments” by Debi Payne Designs

Why not spend a little less time wanting, striving and working for all the things that you want and start appreciating all those precious moments that money can’t buy.

Enjoy being with the ones you love. Treasure the time that you get spend doing what you enjoy. These are the moments you should be collecting instead of things.

Always Remember

Detail Close Up #1

How many times have you said that you couldn’t do something? We have all said it more times that any of us can count? I know it is something that I should do or something that I need to do. Yet I still keep saying that I can’t….

Detail Close Up #2

I have learned that when I say “I can’t…” that usually means that this is something that I am suppose to do and that I need to get over the can’t phase and just start working on finding a way to do it.

"Always Remember" by Debi Payne Designs

“Always Remember” by Debi Payne Designs

Every time I get past the “can’t” and I actually do it I discover that I really am much stronger and braver than I realize.

Believe In The Person

Detail Close Up #1

How many times have you had somebody tell you that you need to do this or do that. Or even worse, they tell you that you need to be this or be that.

Detail Close Up #2

The only thing worse than that is when we try to comply!

 

"Believe In The Person" by Debi Payne Designs

“Believe In The Person” by Debi Payne Designs

Deep, deep in your heart you know what you want to do and you know who you want to be. The only thing that will help you to ignore what other people are telling you to do or be is going to be your belief in yourself.

Believe in the person that you want to become so much and make that belief so strong that you can’t even hear what other people are saying.

It’s About Progress

It's About Prgress Detail Close Up #2

I have to first confess that I am a “recovering perfectionist”!  For years I thought that I had to be perfect in everything that I did.  For some reason I thought that if I didn’t do everything perfectly, then it was wrong and I was a failure.  I’m not sure when or why I developed this thinking, but I finally realized that it was driving me crazy!

It's About Progress Flowers Close Up #1

My sons probably were the ones that helped me get over my obsession with perfection.  I would work so hard to make something just perfect for them.  I would carefully fret over every little detail of something to make it perfect for them.  Then I finally realized that not only did they not care about all those little details that I had fretted and worried over, but they didn’t even notice.  That is when I realized that not only did anybody other than myself care if everything was perfect, but they usually didn’t even notice the effort that I had put forth to make it perfect.

"It's About Progress" by Debi Payne of Debi Payne Designs

“It’s About Progress” by Debi Payne of Debi Payne Designs

So many people spend so much time trying to make something perfect, with all their fussing, fretting and worrying to try to make it perfect, they are never able to make any progress.

Perhaps we should all stop worrying so much about how we are going to do something and just do it!!!!

Drinking From The Saucer

"When Your Cup Overflows" by Debi Payne of Debi Payne Designs

“When Your Cup Overflows” by Debi Payne of Debi Payne Designs

Drinking From The Saucer

by John Paul Moore

I’ve never made a fortune,
And I’ll never make one now
But it really doesn’t matter
‘Cause I’m happy anyhow

As I go along my journey
I’m reaping better than I’ve sowed
I’m drinking from the saucer
‘Cause my cup has overflowed

I don’t have a lot of riches,
And sometimes the going’s tough
But with kin and friends to love me
I think I’m rich enough

I thank God for the blessings
That His mercy has bestowed
I’m drinking from the saucer
‘Cause my cup has overflowed

He gives me strength and courage
When the way grows steep and rough
I’ll not ask for other blessings for
I’m already blessed enough

May we never be too busy
To help bear another’s load
Then we’ll all be drinking from the saucer
When our cups have overflowed

 

May your day be so filled with abundant joy and blessings that you find yourself drinking from the saucer all day long!
