Get Up and Start Again.

My life is boring, I haven’t made any money as yet and every day is the “same old, same old” with nothing happening to make me feel revved up and excited.

Clearly, that’s no way to live.

But the key to getting the life you want is to make changes in your routine and kick it in the a** a little bit, so our days aren’t spent like Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day” — experiencing the same thing over and over again, day after excruciating day.

In less time than it took Murray to learn the life lessons of “Groundhog Day,” you can do the same, starting the ball rolling on a new, improved life that looks much brighter…no matter what challenges you might be facing.

Erase negativity

Whatever you do, don’t stay in a negative or gloomy funk for long. Just start living.

Take stock of the good things and be grateful

Recognize where you are lucky and you will create a sense of optimism that will spread into all other areas of your life.

If you take a few minutes to make a list of the positives in your life, you’ll soon see that:

  • the negatives are greatly outweighed by the positives and;
  • you have so much to work with and live for.

Take stock, be grateful, and start living.

Discover your purpose

We all were put on this earth for a reason. Finding yours will be one of the first steps toward making big changes in your life.

Call to Action: What is one thing you can do right now that will have the most positive impact. What can you stop doing right now that has the most negative impact. Now go and do it!

One step at a time

But remember that taking action is the vital key to the equation.

If you dream of something bigger, it’s not likely it will come to you. You will have to go out and get it. It takes hard work.

Remember, if you’ve taken that first critical step, you’ve already done the hardest part. Don’t become overwhelmed by everything that has to be done. Just take one step at a time. With consistency, moving one step at a time will cause you to live and achieve the life of your dreams.

Find your Zen

To live a peaceful, happy life – and I mean truly live it – sometimes you have to do things that are totally against your nature.

That means if you’re carrying around grudges that are filling you with anger, it’s time to let go and forgive those who have wronged you. The negativity harms no one but yourself, and letting go will be sweet freedom from pain that’s simply unnecessary.

So how, than, do we forgive someone who damaged us and our lives?

  • Get away from the problem. While it might seem like running away, if you can move somewhere where troubled memories don’t follow you wherever you go, you open the door to a new mindset, and that, coupled with a new environment, can lead to better things that can turn a negative into a positive.
  • Get spiritual. While some are best served by attending church to find their introspective side, others can head out into the woods and find a sense of peace that is a good move toward thinking that isn’t done in anger, regret, or despair. Practice meditation. Personally, it has done wonders for me.
  • Use your bad experiences to help others. Share your story to prevent other people from making the same mistakes.

Surprise yourself

One of the best ways to jolt yourself out of a disappointing life is to do something completely different.

Try something new, surprise yourself, and start living.

Revisit that Bucket List…or rather, that LIVING List

If you have a list of things you want to do before you die, don’t sit around waiting for a reason to do them. Try to find one thing on that list that you can accomplish if not today, then tomorrow.


I needed this, I have been down in the dumps for a good month now. I need to pick up the game and move forward again.


Hope I help some of you out there.

Lets get going.

Thanks Michelle. Yep, let's get going...

There were several things that happened in my life over the past year that could have sent me into a deep funk and just let the negativity of it all get to me. However, I did not look at it negatively but positively and one of those situations actually led me to WA!

Yes, there are white and gray days but after inspiring members blogs everything seems bright:)

Happens to all of us but you need to pick yourself up, brush yourself off and start again. Every day is a new chance to start over AND be positive!! ~Debbi
