Happy First Anniversary!

Hello Everyone,

During my first month of blogging, somebody told me that he thinks I have an undiscovered talent in writing, and he believes that I have a potential to be a good writer. Because he believed in me, I believe in myself and in what I can do.

It has been a year since I began my blog. It was my intention to inspire others by writing positive, motivational, and uplifting posts; but my whole blogging experience became more than that-  it has been a great  learning experience for me and a wonderful journey. I was inspired by many of you, and I am very grateful for all the things that I have learned.

My sincerest thanks to all my readers and subscribers for liking, commenting and subscribing to my blog. Thank you for sharing your insights and friendships with me. THANK YOU for being a part of TheHappyLife101! I hope to have another great year with you.

Wishing you all a happy life,

NinaSig

POST TITLE: Autumn Leaves and Forgiveness

“So now the time had arrived…

Thank you anxiety, you showed me how to control my fear,
Thank you inadequacy, you showed me I AM enough,
Thank you over-sensitivity, you showed me how to feel for others,
Thank you worry, you showed me greater peace,
Thank you emotions, you showed me to release my fear of vulnerability,
Thank you solitude, you showed me how to listen to my deepest spirit callings,
Thank you pain, you slowed me down long enough for my heart to catch up,
Thank you, ‘too quiet’, you showed me how to listen,
Thank you jealousy, you showed me what’s important to me,
Thank you ‘day-dreamer’, you showed me the possibilities,
Thank you fear, you showed me how to push through my doubts,
Thank you inferiority, you showed me we are all equal, and all worthy of LOVE,
Thank you self-criticism, you showed me the way ahead can only be LOVE for myself.

May we find forgiveness in our lack of unconditional love towards ourselves.”

BLOG NAME: STICKY NOTE QUOTES
POST TITLE: STICKY NOTE QUOTE # 3

“Have you ever watched someone put somebody else down, sometimes for seemingly no good reason. I know I’m guilty of having done this, as I’m sure most people are as well. When I question my motives for doing so, I find that it isn’t that I genuinely want to hurt the other person’s feelings, or make them feel or look bad, instead, it’s done for the purpose of making myself look better. Although, it seems like a stupid reason for making others look bad (and it is), I find myself doing it relatively often…”

A Blog Worth Sharing #10: ORDINARILYEXTRAORDINARYMOM

Hello Everyone!

Today, I am excited to share with you a blog that I really love. As a working mom, I could definitely relate to most of the post of Brittany Bonnaffons, the Extraordinarily Ordinary Mom!

I like how she shares her personal experience about life and the realizations that she makes. Adding to that the pictures of her super cute kids! I feel blessed and inspired whenever I read her posts. I hope you will find time to visit her blog- I promise you will not regret! 🙂

Thank you Britanny for inspiring us in your awesome way!

BLOG NAME: ORDINARILY EXTRAORDINARY MOM

POST TITLE: WHY I STOPPED TALKING ABOUT WORK AT HOME

“No matter whether you love or hate your job, a job is just that – a job.  It need only be a piece of who you are not the entire picture.  I laugh to myself as I hear God saying, “Brittany, you had only one job!…You had ONE JOB!”  And it had nothing to do with work.  “Give your day to Me.  Trust that I can make the most of it.”  So I do.”

POST TITLE: WHY WE CAN ALL USE A RESOLUTION

“And today I got angry with God.  This time my anger had nothing to do with me.  I was angry for my son.  He could not tell me what color the cup was.  At least twenty times I asked him.  At least twenty times I told him the cup was purple.  At least twenty times, he could not tell me what color the cup was five minutes later, or two minutes later, or one minute later.  Somewhere, in the middle of dinner, I started shouting at God in my mind.  “Goodness gracious.  Just tell him what color the cup is!!!  Why is this fair? Why can’t he remember?  I just asked him.  Please help him remember what color the cup is.””

A Blog Worth Sharing- #9: BOSS in the Middle

Hello Everyone!

I am sharing with you today another great blog that I really admire.

Boss in the Middle focuses on “people who are responsible for understanding, shaping, and promoting the vision of “upper management” and infusing that vision into a workforce.”
It contains very good articles on Leadership, Problem-Solving, and People-Management. But what I love about this blog is how faith in God is incorporated.

I highly encourage you to visit. I’m 101% sure that you’ll have something to take away from this blog. 🙂

POST TITLE: Real Leaders Pray

“For leaders, prayer is not just a meditation technique, that when utilized properly, can calm your heart rate and put you in a tranquil state. No. Prayer is direct communication with the Most High God. The Creator of heaven and earth has given us His undivided attention and we can call Him anytime. It is as vital for a leader to understand the importance of prayer, before, during and after tasks. If we talk to God up front and ensure our motives are clear, He will see you through according to His will…”

POST TITLE: Leaders must say NO when Necessary

“A new leader might think, “It would be great if I could give my team everything they desire.” Higher compensation, benefits, resources, information, the list goes on. But a good leader understands, not only is that impossible, it could also be detrimental…”

BLOG NAME: THOUGHT AVENUE: Speak Your Mind
POST TITLE: Your Word is Your Bond

“Every time you give your word, you’re putting your honor on the line. You’re implying that others can place their trust in you because you value integrity and would never let them down. It goes without saying that if you don’t live up to your word, you may end up tarnishing your credibility, damaging your relationships, and defaming your reputation. Most importantly, you’ll be letting yourself down.”

POSTS TITLE:
How to stop complaining, grumbling, and, moaning

“Mr Midnight had started  wearing a purple latex band around one of his legs and he was now proudly parading around the garden so that Sir Winston could see it.

SW-Avatar       What have you got tied to your leg Mr Midnight? It looks quite funny.

MM-Avatar       It´s a new therapy I´m practicing…”
Losing Control

 “MM-AvatarI´m glad that I´m a cat this time round daddy and not a human being.

author-Avatar       And why is that Mr Midnight?  Can you remember a disturbing event from one of your past lives or something?

MM-Avatar       Not really. I sometimes have strange flashbacks burning my brain but that could also have something to do with the fact that I haven´t drank enough fluids.

I don´t need to travel back to one of my past lives to be thankful that I´m a cat.

You human beings always remind me how good I´ve got it.”

A Blog Worth Sharing # 6- Zen and the Art of Everyday Living

Hello Everyone!

The blog that I am sharing with you today is one of the most helpful blogs I’ve encountered, especially when it comes to living mindfully and peacefully. The author, Richard Grumberg, has a very clear and easy to understand approach in his writings. I strongly recommend that you visit his blog… AND for the poetic bloggers, you may also like his other blog  575 Haiku Place.

Thank you Richard for teaching us the art of everyday living! Your amazing blog is truly inspirational and helpful.

BLOG NAME: Zen and the Art of Everyday Living
POST TITLE: The Path of Wisdom: Parenting the Inner Child

“Whether or not you believe in the concept of an ‘inner child’ (and no less a Zen Master than Thich Nhat Hanh is a strong proponent of it), we all know that just about every time we set out do something that will require any appreciable effort, our feelings will inevitably scream out, “I don’t want to! I don’t want to! Let’s just do that tomorrow!”

Conversely, any time we are tempted to do something that we know we shouldn’t do, our feelings will cry out, “But I want to! I want to! Do it! Do it! Do it!” Those feelings make up a large part of our inner child.

This is why I believe that parenting our inner child, which is predisposed to avoiding pain and seeking pleasure, is one of the greatest skills any human being can develop if they want to successfully do just about anything involving any appreciable effort.”

Your Duty To The World

“How dare you NOT stand out? It is a shame of you not to share your gift with world! What about all the people you can touch? What about the inspiration and love you can spread? If you spare the world your gift, you may take away many smiles from the people who would love your work.”

What Kind of Tree Are You?

“Look inside and examine who you really are in the most objective way possible (this is a high level of maturity – objectivity). Don’t judge or criticize what you find inside; if you don’t like what you found inside, just understand that you can change and go get the information needed for you to do that.”
