Angels Come In Unexpected Ways


We never know where or how we get a message; we just need to be open to receive them. 

Today I was driving down a major road and turned off to go into a supermarket, as I turned into the parking lot, although I slowed down, I was still going fast enough for the gentlemen on the sidewalk to motion his hand for me to slow down.  Now there are times I would have rolled my eyes thinking I am not going fast what is he doing, but I do not look at things that way anymore. 

It all becomes a wakeup call.  Maybe I have been driving too fast and not paying attention to my driving and maybe could have caused an accident, if not today maybe another day, but I received my sign!  Slow down. 

I take heed to these signs, this may be one that seems so ordinary, but in reality, none of them is ordinary.  Things are placed in front of us for a reason, we just need to lose our ego and pay attention.

Pay attention, see when you can place your ego aside, and find the message.

Fiona Brings Exercise Back Into My Life


At one time, I lived, breathed, and ate exercising; it was who I was.  I ran, stepped, boxed, lifted weights, and practiced yoga. I did it all, and loved it.  Until, one day it stopped. Injuries started to happen, bad knees, bad wrists, asthma, and little by little my exercise routine widdled away. Instead of focusing on repairing or adjusting any damage, I became unmotivated.   I became sedentary; although I did always stretch and do some form of yoga, it was limited.  Who had I become? 

Two years ago, I rescued a Maltese mix named Fiona; she has brought so much joy into my life and a few gray hairs. I wake up every morning with a little black nose in my face and a paw clawing at me to get up, and of course, I do!   Fiona has not only brought constant smiles and laughter in my life, she brought back exercise!   Animals are amazing and everything they do is out of instinct, and one of them is stretching!  My 11lb Fiona stretches constantly, when she gets up, before she eats, before we go out, I have never seen so many down dogs in my life!!  However, it is beautiful to see her align her body as she does.  Alas, I am no longer ashamed to say I do not work out, I DO work out.  I joined the gym again; I also joined an incredible website “my yoga online” which is amazing; yoga, meditations, workshops, 24 hours at your fingertips.

One never knows where or how they will get motivated; it can come from the most unexpected places.  As we evolve in life so does our outlook, perspective, and of course, our motivation.  Many years ago my motivation for working out was for that size 4 dress at Macy’s,  today it is how a little dog I thought I rescued, actually rescued me, and taught me the importance of moving my body, making it flow and respecting it again.  I love my workouts , I love to feel my body move,  I love how I am respecting it and not pushing it beyond its limits. 

Life is good, look where your motivation comes from and let me know.

Valuable Tool to Relax and Destress

Many years ago I learned a valuable tool, which has helped me tremendously and would like to share with you. 

Let’s face it, life can be very stressful, always on the go, making phone calls, paying bills, picking up children, cooking dinner, cleaning, working,  the list goes on and on and sometimes never ends.  The exercise I am about to explain to you, will teach you to relax and calm yourself as you go through your day and projects. 

Relax and breathe for 20, 30, 60 seconds (yes, that simple). A typical night might be paying your bills and then starting dinner.  After you pay your bills, pause, let yourself relax and breathe for 20, 30, 60 seconds.  This allows you to let go of whatever you were doing and lets your mind/body relax, calm itself.  You let go and this release refreshes you.  When you start your new project, you will be more focused and calm.  It sounds so easy and it is.   This is one of the best tools I have learned, it is a mini meditation. 

Try this exercise and see how you feel and as soon as I finish writing I will pause and breathe for 60 seconds.

Mary Mongiardini’s Gratitude Tips


So many times in life we forget to be thankful for what we have, no matter how little it may be.  I find myself complaining about things and have to stop and think of what I do have and say thank you and amazingly I no longer feel sorry, sad, or depressed; I feel good. 

There are times I may not like the way my clothes fit and start complaining that I gained weight, or my legs are too short, but then I have to stop and say, hey wait a minute, thank goodness I have legs and if I gained weight how lucky am I that I can put food on my table. Wow, when I realize that it really is not so bad, well, I feel so much better, so my legs are short but they are healthy, I can run, stretch, move with ease and a smile comes on my face.  That smile is so much more than you can imagine, my whole being shifts to joy. 

We all know that people are in our lives for reasons, some are there for a short term others for always, but we learn from all of them. I may feel upset with someone but then I  have to stop and  think what good that person has  brought in to my life, what lesson am I learning and again a shift occurs, the anger, hurt or whatever it may have been diminishes and the joy starts. 

An exercise that I do in the morning is to say something that I am grateful for in my life,and in the evening I say what has happened today that I am grateful for.  You can  start with one thought of gratitude and you can work your way up to as many as you are grateful for.  Unbelievably no matter how bad you thought your day to be you will find things to be grateful for and you will start and end your day on the best note… again the smile that comes on your face. 

Remember no matter how bad we think things are stop and think of what you may be grateful for, and watch the world change around you.
