Happy Tweets Monday!

Happy Monday, Happy People!

Honesty time: Are these Happy Tweets Mondays still capturing your attention and affecting you positively?!

I started reposting positive/happy/motivating tweets over a year ago to kick my butt into high gear on dreaded Monday mornings. I realize that I haven’t kept up my end of the bargain as of late, and I feel like not posting them and having them in front of me has affected me in a negative way. When I don’t post, I feel like there is at least a little something missing. Like my Mondays fly by and I get nothing done.

Is there a more diverse way that you would like to be receiving inspiration and happiness? Know that I am developing so much more down the pipeline, and I would love to hear your thoughts!

Other than that, I hope you can find your tenacity within these posts, and that it inspires you to pass the positive vibes along to others!

Enjoy!

Happy Tweets Monday!

Good Evening, Happy People!

If you are anything like me, you are not too thrilled to be back to the grind after an AMAZING American Thanksgiving, filled with turkey, potatoes, turkey, apple pie, and – you guessed it – more turkey. And, though you may still have leftovers in the fridge, we can’t let the gluttonous, unproductive versions of ourselves carry over any longer (I admit, I gave it the long weekend, too!). I tend to look at Monday as my starting-over point. My take-off into the next week. The way I feel on Monday – as much as I hate it – dictates how I work and feel the rest of the week.

Lucky for everyone involved, I was feeling VERY inspired this morning. In fact, I finally started my morning workout routine again. I can no longer excuse myself with the weather changing and a warm bed calling my name, as that is how it will be for the next few months. No hibernating here!

Here are your Happy Tweets for the week! I hope they motivate + inspire + propel you forward into positive vibes for (at least) the rest of the week!

Enjoy!

3 Recent-ish Developments

Yes, I know: we are over a month away from 2015. But first the first time in, well, EVER, I am really excited to work on very specific areas of my life in the New Year. No more of this lose-15-pounds, knit-10-items, be-more-beautiful mumbo jumbo. It’s time to be clear. It’s time to keep dreaming and scheming, but most of all it is time to sit my a** down and CREATE. Here are the 3 closest-to-my-heart items that I am going to create/develop in the New Year:

1. Myself. I have spent the last couple of months really delving into my desires, dreams, and how I want to feel when I make decisions. I am actually the worst decision-maker you may ever meet, so checking in with myself and asking how I want to feel with each decision is helping me to mature in this area. One of my greatest decisions I have made so far in this mindset?

2. This Community. I have made the decision to develop this platform into so much more. It needs a little TLC + idea-mapping before I can go into much else detail, but I will tell you this: I want this to be a community of like-minded people who want to live a journey of happiness. I want learning materials + a happiness shop + events + giveaways. And I want it all to launch in 2015 so we can all start a real, focused journey!

3. a FILM. I have wanted to be a filmmaker for years at this point. And in the last year – mainly because of our Roamin4Happiness community – I have decided that I want to create MEANINGFUL films. Films that inspire happiness. Films that change lives. Well, also funny films, but I will need a little help in that department 🙂 To start out, however, I have an idea up my sleeve that incorporate both #1 AND #2. More on that later…

For the remainder of 2014, I will be working with #SecretBloggersBusiness (and hopefully their #SBBscholarship ) to really dig into best plan + action for our community. I have so many ideas in this little ole brain-o-mine, but have just had a hard time with execution of these ideas in the past. With their assistance, I know that our community will become highly contagious, as well as sought-after. I also know that they can assist me in ways that I don’t even know yet (heck, with the #SBBscholarship , our original graphics + photographs will finally have a universal feel and develop leaps and bounds)!

So, at this time, I seek a little patience from you, my wonderful community of Happy People. Don’t stop doing what you do. Just know that this is the top priority of mine and that I am working to make this blog the best I can for us. The future may be blurry, but know that as we choose our own happiness, it becomes decisively more clear. Wonderfully, splendidly clear.

Thank you!

Happy Tweets MONDAY!

Happy Monday, Happy People!

Let me tell you: The last couple of weeks have been eye-opening ones for yours truly! I have been plannin’, schemin’, and – most importantly – BELIEVING IN MYSELF. I have decided that 2015 is going to be the year of THE LAUNCH! What am I launching, you ask? I will be launching a new site + design for roamin4happiness, a new film project, + MYSELF into the world! It’s time for me to take the reigns of my own life and LIVE!

With that in mind, we are back with our happy tweets! I hope that they inspire you to think a bit about the coming year and what you are going to do to make it the HAPPIEST year yet!

If you have any ideas you want to bounce off someone, please feel free to interact with me in the comments! I am ready to inspire + be inspired!

Enjoy!

2 Actions to GET INSPIRED!

Good Day, Happy People!

I’ll admit it: I have been a little less-than-inspired recently! I subscribe to blogs, “Like” Facebook pages, and follow people and businesses on Twitter for daily doses of inspiration and motivation. But sometimes, it affects me for 2 minutes and then I go about my day, mundanely. And I hate it.

Sometimes, we all need a little kick in the pants, and for me, I continuously kicked myself for almost a week, and now I feel all charged up like the Energizer Bunny!

What did it for you? How can I do the same? Time to get back on the wagon!

Here are the 2 simple actions I took/am taking to propel myself forward, inspired:

1. I purchased something for myself. A few things, actually. When was the last time you purchased something for yourself without necessity? Purchased a dress you didn’t need for an upcoming work event, or that T.V. and XBOX 1 you needed to continue to interact with your gamer friends and stay up-to-par with the status quo?

Not only did I purchase a few things for myself, but they were on sale (YEEEE!), and they display words to motivate and inspire me:
bracelet icing3 PhoneCase
 * “STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES” bangle purchased ON SALE from: KateSpade.com
* “Quit Slackin’ + Make It Happen” wallet, and “Start the day with a smile and end it with champagne” phone case purchased ON SALE from: The Icing

If you have a difficult time “selfishly” purchasing items for yourself, then do what I (wish I could) do, and give away one item in your home for each item you purchase. Guilt-away! Now, every time I look down, I have a reminder to be positive, and not just dream, but GO FOR MY DREAMS! Everyone deserves a little sumpin-sumpin to do that for them!

2. Write a MANIFESTO. This week, I am participating in a FREE course with Melissa Cassera (MelissaCassera.com) entitled OBSESSED. Monday’s prompt was to write a Lifestyle Manifesto. According to Melissa’s worksheet: a Manifesto “provides a ‘check-in’ system to ensure that you’re practicing what you preach + presenting an accurate depiction of your lifestyle.” I have read so many times over that writing a Manifesto could be that one thing to spark everything else positively in my life…and for some reason I just never jumped on it. The prompt inspired me, but blocked me at the same time. Good thing Melissa included a fill in the blank form for me to start with! I will past the first draft of my manifesto below. But, just like life, it is a work-in-progress. Let me know what you think!

RoaminTwin’s Lifestyle Manifesto: Draft 1

When I wake up in the morning, the first thought on my mind is: Will going to the gym bring me more joy or pain, today?
And after that: Time for a big stretch and a spot of tea!
My heart glows when I am laughing with my best mates, and my heart breaks when I have no power to better a tough situation for a friend or family member
My community is my inspiration. More than anything else, I care about helping them to realize the joy they bring others
In my world, fantastic, flirty underwear is an absolute necessity
Jumping in puddles and wine nights are always a good idea.
Champagne and celebration are acceptable EVERY day
Pants are overrated, and being anything but authentic is a definite NO.
Fantasizing about that ice cream treat after a zumbathon is totally reasonable.
Striving to roam every corner of the earth is a must.
But, at the end of the day, living an abundantly joy-filled journey is all that matters.
When I die, I want to be remembered as the person who found herself on an adventure in happiness with…herself
And who inspired others to find joy and fulfillment in themselves, too.

Call-To-Action: Now that I have shared my Manifesto, I want YOU to create one to share with the community! This is a forum to share and promote happiness, so no holding back!

Happy Tweets Monday!

Good Afternoon, and welcome back to Happy Tweets Monday, Happy People!

I am back in business after my honeymoon hiatus, and couldn’t be happier to spread some long-awaited love and momentum to everyone (including myself). Because, let’s face it: Mondays are hard to get through. Especially after a 2 week trip to Europe and beyond – but that’s for another post!

Enjoy!

The following tweet should look familiar to you. I posted it in the last Happy Tweets Monday post 2 weeks ago. But, I could post it every day for the rest of my life. Good reminder!

 
Because in the end you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
 
 
“Be stronger than your excuses.”

 
: “People get so stuck on what they think they should be doing that they often miss their true calling.”
 
 
Our life is nothing more than the product of all the choices we’ve made. Want to change your life? Change your choices.
 
 
“What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?” ― John Green
 
 
Instead, it’s better to seek adventure and take risks. That’s where happiness hides out.
 
“For most of us, it’s our blind spots that hold us back.” –
 
 
Everybody’s gotta start somewhere. You gotta learn how to walk before you can run. Just do it!

Happy Tweets Makeshift Monday

Hello All!

I know it is Tuesday, but it is my workweek Monday due to this past weekend’s wedding festivities.

Yes, Timmykins and I tied the knot, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Though I did get a little cranky with him last evening, so who knows if he is feeling the same…

🙂

Since I am starting back at work after a few days leave, I need a little motivation to back me up. And I think finding it in the form of Happy Tweets is the best way for the motivation to come to me. Why? Because they are short, sweet, memorable mantras that I can repeat to myself throughout the day. For confidence, motivation, and just pure happiness. Because, isn’t that something we ALL need at the start of a work week?

Enjoy!

Every positive thought propels you in the right direction.
 
You must have the self discipline to do the things you do not want to do, when you do not want to do them….

You are your inspiration, You are your solution, You are your motivation!
 
You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything…
 
“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”—Albert Einstein
 
If you want to reach a goal, you must ‘see the reaching’ in your own mind before you actually arrive at your goal. – Zig Ziglar
 
Be responsible for the energy you bring.
 
It’s not who you are that holds you back; it’s who you think you’re not.
 
Have a productive, fun, and HAPPY week, Happy People!

Happy Tweets Monday

Well, Hello Happy People!

Fancy seeing you here! Shouldn’t you be, I don’t know, at work or celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or something?

I, myself, have spent my day at work, in a green pea coat (gotta stay festive!), in a very calm mood. And I have been told over and over that I should NOT be so calm right now…I am getting married in 4 days! Thinking about it gives me butterflies, but as you may know by now, I take one thing at a time. I have so much happening prior to the wedding that has nothing to do with it, that I need to get through those things and final preparations before it will really hit me!

In order to keep emotions at bay, as well as get me through these last few days of work, I think it’s best for me to continue on with this Happy Tweets routine as I do every week! What do you say? Are you ready to enjoy this Tweet roundup?

Here it goes!

I hope that these Tweets are little messages you can take to heart and carry with you throughout your day. Whether you are needing the motivation to finish a project, make it through a major transition in your life, or just need something to make you smile, I want this to do all of that and so much more.
 
These will do for you what you allow them to.
 
Thanks, and have a Happy Day!

Happy Tweets Tuesday

I need motivation more than anything TODAY, so part of me is grateful that I didn’t compile the Happy Tweets yesterday. I was just running around all over the place, and my BUSYness motivated me. Today, I feel like I could fall asleep at any point — even walking around the office! And I just have so much more day to go…

I am not distracted by anything. Except for sleep.

So, for those of you ALSO distracted (by sleep, marriage prep, trips coming up, school, babies, etc.), here are this week’s Happy Tweets to get you back on track to succeed in ALL areas!

Lori Fields ‏@RealBeautyIs  
This is your life. Do what you love & do it often.
