Thank you so much to Mimi for hosting me
on her blog.
love her blog name, BELIEVE. The name
of my blog is DAYDREAMING…So, today we are going to do some DAYDREAMING and
BELIEVE that we can achieve those dreams.
been told I should have been a motivational speaker. I reply by saying, “I am” because I try to motivate every time I
open my mouth or touch the keyboard with my fingertips. I’ve been blessed, I guess with a gift that
allows me to look past the shallow and sometimes demanding nature of others and
see through to the positive and gifted person within. I know. We are surrounded by negativity. Open any newspaper,
magazine or online venue and you are bombarded by negative expressions. It can be very depressing, and it can be
very difficult to rise above the attitude of others. It’s necessary.
is a new day. This hour is a new hour. This minute is a new minute. We are surrounded by newness that we
overlook with frequency. When we wake
up in the morning, we should value the sunrise for what it is “an amazing new
opportunity for change.”
only way that we can achieve anything is to resolve that we want to. Goal setting is important because it gives
us a framework to hang all our hopes and dreams and a way to measure our

do you change an attitude and regain that optimism you once had? Well, take a lesson from childhood and
rediscover the art of DAYDREAMING. Find
a quiet place for some alone time. It
could be in your room on your bed, beside a pool or on a pallet in the
woods. Close your eyes and let your
mind wander to places that only it can.
Allow the real world to melt away and call upon your inner child because
the child within was never afraid to dream and began life full of
optimism. If you find it difficult the
first time, don’t give up because it’s taken years to develop the attitude
you’re wearing. If you’re willing to change, to recapture the part of you that
feeds your self-confidence you can.

way it is, you owe it to yourself to try anything that will spark that renewed
energy to face the world again with fresh eyes, a new attitude and effect it in
a positive way.
