Season of New Beginnings

Spring is the season of new beginnings. Fresh buds bloom and animals awaken and the earth seems to come to life again. Farmers and gardeners plant their seeds, and temperatures slowly rise. Changes vary depending upon location, as most equatorial regions see fairly constant temperatures throughout the year. The smell of flowers fill the air as the fresh breeze blows.

Warmer temperatures means the ground, which may have frozen over the winter months, grows softer and more yielding to plants. Spring is often marked by increased rainfall, which helps to water the infant seeds taking root in the ground.

Animals that spent the winter in hibernation come out of their dens, while those that traveled to warmer regions return. Many animals give birth in the spring. Winter coats are shed by those that sported them, and some animals may change coloration to blend in with their new surroundings.

The rising  rainfall of spring may bring with it an increase in flooding as melting snow overwhelms rivers. Spring may also boast storms, as warm air from the equator combines with still-cool air farther north or south. Tornadoes are common during the spring in the United States as air of different temperatures combine.

Spring is a beautiful time of the year!

Spring brings blooming flowers.

10 Personal Development Quotes to Motivate you!

We could all use a little motivation in our lives! Here are 10 powerful personal development quotes to help inspire you into taking more action to get the results that you deserve!
  1. As the physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training, so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking.

    James Allen – As a Man Thinketh
    “As a Man Thinketh” was written by James Allen and published all the way back in 1902, yet so many of the principles are still great today! If you get a chance to read this book, you will immediately see the value in the wisdom that is shared, and how these principles have stood the test of time, literally, over a century and counting!
  2. It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not.

    André Gide – Autumn Leaves
    This quote helps to remind us not to be afraid of failure, or afraid of haters, as we embark upon our journey towards success. Along the way there will be many obstacles and setbacks, and many naysayers who will steal our dreams. But if you are chasing something that you truly love, it’s always worth it in the long run!
  3. So what is the difference between power thinking and positive thinking? The distinction is slight but profound. To me, people use positive thinking to pretend that everything is rosy, when they really believe that it’s not. With power thinking, we understand that everything is neutral, that nothing has meaning except for the meaning we give it, and that we are going to make up a story and give something it’s meaning.

    T Harv Eker – Secrets of the Millionaire Mind
    We have to be careful about the stories that we tell ourselves in our own mind. We can quickly create limiting beliefs that can hold us back from our true potential. Or we can create stories that build our confidence and belief and inspire us into action. What stories are YOU choosing to tell yourself?
  4. We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them.

    Epictetus – Enchiridion
    So many people are quick to complain about their situation and their circumstances, as a way to justify their lack of actions to change it. But at the end of the day, WE are the ones that have the choice to respond to these things that happen to us. Are we choosing to view things as negative or positive? Are we choosing to embrace the challenges, or let them hold us back?
  5. Be the change you want to see in this world.

    Gandhi
    This quote is so powerful there is not much that I can say about it. Except to share it with the hope that we all truly step out of our comfort zone, and stop worrying about what others choose to do, and instead focus on the daily actions that we can lead by example with.
  6. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    Mark Twain
    This quote really resonates with me because we all live with a little bit of hindsight and regret, that we do our best to shake off. The good news is that we are in control over what we choose to spend our time on in the future, so let’s spend it doing things that we will look back and be proud of ourselves and have amazing experiences and memories that we can share with others to inspire them!
  7. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

    Steve Jobs
    It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else wants us to do with our lives. But what about OUR passions? What about OUR dreams? What’s most important is trusting ourselves and the direction that we are compelled to go, because our heart and intuition know us best 🙂
  8. A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

    Albert Einstein
    Risk is a major factor that can slow us down along our journey. We are creatures of habit, and we tend to fall into our routines and watch time just slip away from us. Sometimes is good to be spontaneous and try new things and live life to the fullest!
  9. The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.

    Oprah Winfrey
    What if we sat down and REALLY wrote out a list of our dreams and goals and desires, and then got PASSIONATE to spend every waking hour that we could, pursuing those dreams and goals…How amazing would that adventure be? How awesome would life be if there were no limitations to what you could do?
  10. In life, lots of people know what to do, but few people actually do what they know. Knowing is not enough! You must take action.

    Tony Robbins
    I wanted to end with this quote, because reading quotes doesn’t do much for us, except make us feel good and help us with our belief. What we really need is to Take Massive Action and actually get out there and go after our dreams and goals to live life to the fullest. Are you ready to do whatever it takes to have the success that you deserve?

Stopping a cut from bleeding

Stop a cut from bleeding with chili pepper powder.

Have you ever cut yourself with a knife or something else sharp? And then the blood starts coming out and you would think about going to a sink with running water on it right? Well, I have another solution for that and it’s not the running water trick. Sure, It can clean the blood off and wound but there is a better way to clean the cut and that is to sprinkle chili pepper powder on the cut. No, it won’t sting and hurt from the powder like you think it would but, it will stop the bleeding. So, what you would do afterwards is wait about half an hour and then clean with a cloth and apply liquid bandage or a band aid. Try it the next time you have a cut!
