I wanted to do something for the year on love. Here are my love calendars. I created them to sell to offset the cost of editing my books.
Ha, I knew it wasn’t going to work because I gave them away or as Christmas gifts. Yep, I could never be a sales person. Lol. I can only be me and I love to give.
Oh, I did some muscle car calendars as well with a the Mustang above, Viper, Camaro and Corvette. Yes, even I was drooling over how great those calendars looked. The blue beast Mustang is my favorite it takes no prisoners. Ok… back to love!

As always, I believe in celebrating the uniqueness of each individual. We’re not carbon copies. We may be similar but never the same. Even identical twins have differences, not matter how subtle, if you pay attention. With that said, be proud of who you are. Never compare yourself to someone else because you’ll always fall short in your eyes. When you look in the mirror don’t focus on what you don’t have or how you don’t look. Learn to appreciate who you are and learn to love being you! I’ve learn this over the years with myself. Change what you can if that will make you a better person not just a prettier one. Happiness starts from the inside out not the outside in. Be outstanding by being you!
P.S. If you want to feel better about yourself, help someone else to feel better about themself! Just a thought.
Love & Hugs from me to you! Valarie
Make time to enjoy life. It may never be more than what it is but that doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of it! Small changes can make a big difference starting with perception. Instead of saying I can’t, believe that you can.
Love yourself enough to change your situation including the people around you. Be strong enough to say enough! Bold enough to press you way through. Confident enough to know you’re worth it!
Love in action – Show yourself love! Valarie
No one likes to make mistakes even by accident. Unfortunately, we do and most assuredly will. So, what do we do after it happens, throw our hands up and say oh well or do we see it as an opportunity to learn and grow? When you make the same mistake repeatedly, you have to make the adjustment of change. This means changing your perception, mindset, words actions and/or environment. Mistakes are not the end but the beginning of knowledge in an area you were unprepared, unaware and unable to make work at the time. If you fell down, get up, brush yourself off and keep going or if necessary try again with the lesson you’ve learned. Use it to avoid making another mistake. Use it as a stepping stone to your goal.

Greetings to all! I’ve been away for a while dealing with life and situations as they have arisen. As you all can figure out, I have this thing for LOVE. As 2014 rolled in, so have challenges.
The latest one is a week-long furlough which I’m on now from work. For those of you who don’t know what that means it’s another name for layoff. This option seemed favorable compared to letting someone go. Truly, I agree this was a better solution.
In my world of work, this could have produced bad attitudes, fear (there was some) and negativity etc. However, after the shock, co-workers embraced it and choose to see the week off as a vacation without pay.
We allowed love to cast out fear (most of it) and encouraged one another.
I challenge all of you to change your world and the world around you for the good. One person can affect positive change so try it and let me know how it works.
Now is the time when most people reflect on the past 11 months and 30 days, re-evaluate and plan to change. Unfortunately, the person you were at 11:59pm is still the same person you will be at 12:00am (Midnight). Change is a process and if you wanted to be different in 2014 you should have started a while ago. Now, is it too late… never, but it will take patience, perseverance and consistency for change to occur. With that said, be patient with yourself. If you could’ve changed in a blink of an eye, you would’ve already done it.
New Years is not about making resolutions to better yourself or your life (there’s nothing wrong with that). It’s not a fresh start or the only time you can reflect and change, you can do those things at anytime of the year. Try seeing the New Year as just that, a new calendar year. Now, you can and should have plans and goals you’d like to accomplish within the next 365 days without the pressures of feeling like a failure if you don’t do them all. Enjoy the new year and each day contained within it. At the end of 2014 hopefully you will look back and see a year that you enjoyed, not one that’s full of broken promises and failed resolutions. HAPPY NEW YEAR! LOVE YOURSELF MORE THAN YOU DID IN 2013.
I have lots of things to do. Projects to start, continue and finish. Dreams to follow, plans to be made and with 12 days off I intended to start and finish quite a bit. Well, needless to say, I’ve spent a lot of time doing nothing and wondering what happened as days quickly pass by. Yep, with 5 days left, I have very little to show for it. Too much of nothing has led to nothing! I couldn’t even relax and do nothing without doing something that equated to nothing. However, I did watch a few movies online and to know me is to know that last movie I saw was Batman. Me and movies are distant friends, one every blue moon. So, to have watched 3 I’m doing great even if they are old. Lol.
Let today be more than the giving of gifts. Give what cannot be lost, broken, returned, given away, pushed to the side or devalued. Give the gift of LOVE! When it is genuinely given, joy always follows and leaves a lasting impression in the life of the recipient.
Wishing all a Merry Christmas filled love, joy, peace, kindness, self-control, goodness, gentleness, patience, faithfulness and blessings. Valarie
