The beginning of a new season…Christmas

Christmas was never a good holiday for me, at least for the past 4 years. Family grows apart, friendships fade and well, the time of depression tends to set in….DEEPLY. But this holiday season I will make it different, I will make it better around my family. My spirits will be lifted, my mindset will be positive and my overall goal is to be as happy as I possibly can.

The empty bench that you see here will be filled with time spent reading, drinking coffee and conversations with people that I love and enjoy. So, come join me and help me make memories and laugh about the nonsense of life’s worries.

Happy Holidays,

Day 19 – #21EarlyDays with JRose!

Day 19 – Only 2 more days! Should I keep it going? I woke today at 5:30a, I didn’t do much around the house this morning, but wash a few dishes from last night, ate breakfast and had a cup of coffee. I did talk a “humid” stroll in my neighborhood this morning, phew it was HOT! Where did the autumn weather go? I posted the social media for work this morning and answered a few emails. The sun is bright and the rain is supposedly to arrive this afternoon…we shall see.

Last night was not a good night in Casa JRose. If you are a parent of college kids, you just might sympathize with me. We work hard to keep a nice house, a good environment and well a safe place to dwell. But when things (rooms) become disarray, this momma gets frustrated. You have heard the saying, ‘I don’t get paid to be a maid in my own house!” Yeah, that was me last night. I am somewhat better this morning, and I shouldn’t sweat the small issues, but man, it’s hard!

I will go on with my day, go on with my work and come home to hopefully a peaceful environment. Then go to bed early and start all over again.

It’s never too late…..to love unconditionally

Love can be liberating.

Or it can be confining.

Long-lasting love must be without conditions.

It must allow room for growth.

For expression.

For freedom.

For mistakes.

For forgiveness.

Unconditional love has no limits.

Happy Day!

Cheers,

JRose!

Day 17 – #21EarlyDay with JRose!

Day 17 – Happy Friday all!! Today is going to be a FABULOUS day! I feel refreshed, positive and joyful. I got some laundry out of the way, had only one cup of coffee, posted social media for work and now it’s off to get ready for my day.

Happy-Friday (2)As I look out my window, I know I should be taking my morning stroll, but I am not. Maybe I will just do some squats this morning and get my energy level pumped. I got wrapped up in conversation with my sister-in-law and time got away from me. But nonetheless, our conversation was a good one and I ❤ her very much. I pray that peace is now a part of her life and moving forward will be a great thing.

It’s never too late….to find peace

Nobody can prevent you from finding peace.

Unless you empower them.

If something is stopping you from reaching it,

act on it.

If it’s outside your powers,

stop worrying about it.

Peace comes from within.

Search inside yourself.

Happy day everyone!

Cheers,

JRose!
