I have been a bad girl lately...

and have been neglecting myself.  I haven't been doing the things that make me happy like I should.  I've been basically just coasting along the past few weeks, but I have broken out of my slump and I am back!  We all need to pamper ourselves and treat ourselves to a lil something special.  Sooooooo, I'm starting off my week with the most awesome exfoliating foot soak.

1 cup white vinegar
1 cup Listerine mouthwash (the generic works just as well)
1 cup warm water

Pour all three into container that's just big enough for both feet (or one foot if you prefer).  The dry, calloused skin will just rub off with a towel :)

Some of you fellas can use this too!

(inspired by a Facebook meme): In life, you have two options...Make progress or make excuses.  If you want to get anywhere, you can't stay in the same place.

MommaMae's word for the day:

Don't miss out on a blessing just because it didn't arrive in the package you expected.  The best blessings often come from the least expected sources.

Book Excerpt #13....The Only Thing That Matters

(Note: This picks up where the last excerpt left off. For purposes of continuity, daily reading will prove very helpful.)

Okay, so maybe We should just drop the whole idea. Erase the statement: We Are All One.

Forget We said that.

Allow yourself to encounter this material as if someone else wrote it and you’re just reading it. Maybe that’s enough for the first sit-down with this book. That’s the safe way, and so it may be the better way. At least for now. Perhaps We can get back to this a bit later . . . like, maybe, 10 chapters from now . . . after more groundwork has been laid.

Or maybe not. We’ll see.

No, wait. We have to. It’s an absolute Must, because it’s this Awareness that creates the only context within which The Only Thing That Matters can emerge as an experience in our lives. So before we’re done here, you’re going to be invited into a felt sense that We Are All One—because you’re going to be writing this book.

But not just yet.

(NOTE from NDW SUPPORT: Neale considers THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS (just released from Hay House) to be his most important book to emerge from God's inspiration since "Conversations with God." Neale's dream is that everyone could read every word that's in this text. He is therefore posting the entire book, line-by-line, here on Facebook, in daily excerpts. He hopes that you will find the book as beneficial as he has.)

5 Habits That Produce Extraordinary Relationships BY: Tiya Cunningham-Sumter - 20 Jun '13

Some may be questioning whether or not it is actually possible to experience an extraordinary relationship. I believe it is. We already know good ones exist and there are even some really great partnerships. But, how many of us strive for extraordinary?  I would never deceive anyone into believing it’s a breeze to obtain. I will, however, challenge everyone reading this to understand whatever we put time, energy and effort into will eventually become remarkable.
If an exceptional marriage or relationship is what you’re after, explore these 5 habits to assist you in getting there:
  1. Speak favorably of your significant other; especially in their absence. Everyone in your personal circle should know you are in a relationship and hear more positives than negatives about your mate.
  2. Be patient with your boo. It’s easy to become snappish or disagreeable when we’re tired or frustrated. Remember, this is someone we love; therefore love should always be evident in each communication.
  3. Love intensely, passionately and frequently! If all the world needs is love, it’s absolutely the most key ingredient in our relationships. In everything we do, the plan should be to have no regrets. Can you imagine how powerful a relationship could be If we loved like there was no tomorrow?
  4. Touch regularly. Holding hands, kissing, gazing into each other’s eyes and making love always produce a stronger relationship. Keep in mind we can’t argue, fuss or fight while we’re physically connected.
  5. Listen attentively to your partner. There will be certain things said that pertain directly to the relationship. If for some reason we aren’t listening, we just might miss out. Listening is the best source for information gathering on our mate. How else will we learn of their little quirks, pet peeves and what makes them happy? When they speak, we must give our undivided attention.
Ultimately, all we really must do is treat our partner the way we desire to be treated. People are pretty much the same. We all have feelings that can get hurt, dreams we want supported, and the need to experience an honest and healthy love relationship. Once we have that understanding, we are well on our way to achieving an extraordinary relationship.

MommaMae's word for the day...

As Maya Angelou said, "If someone shows you who they are, believe them."  Characterize people by their actions and you won't be fooled by their words.

MommaMae's word for the day:

Don't be in a competition to be better than someone else.  Instead, make it your goal to be a better person today than you were yesterday. (inspired by a facebook meme).

MommaMae's word for the day:

If you take a long hard look in the'll see the root of your problems...Y.O.U. You are your own worst enemy, but it doesn't have to be that way. Where you are is where you want to be because you have the power to change it.  What you think about and your subsequent actions affect what you bring into your life.  Change your mind and you can change your world.

MommaMae's word for the day...

Loss is hurtful and painful...but loss also makes space for something else and YOU get to choose what you use to fill that space with.  Choose wisely.
