They say today is “Blue Monday”– the day when all of the holidays are officially over, everyone is feeling the letdown from it, bills are starting to come in from all the holiday shopping (and everyone is broke, which itself is depressing), New Year’s Resolutions haven’t been kept, so everyone is feeling dismal. The “holiday” was coined by some psychologist or something, and some wonder if it really even exists.

Here is “Blue Monday” song (which I thought perfect for today! : ))

If you are a bit down, a book I just finished might be of help.

My Review:

5 ***** stars!

N. N. Light’s Book of Daily Inspiration is inspiring indeed! It reads like a devotional, with thoughts for each day throughout the year– a perfect way to start a day and get the mind on good, constructive, productive thoughts. The thoughts range from inspiring to encouraging, profound and logical… and everyone needs an encouraging boost, words to edify and uplift everyday. Life can be difficult and discouraging, and reading the passages helps to put the mind on the positive. I would recommend the book to everyone. It is a goldmine! I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!

In 2013, we wrote a mission statement and started the Princess of the Light (POTL) blog. We wanted to test a theory. Could one person (or in our case, one couple) use uplifting words to create change?

The answer is a resounding yes! People from all over the world responded to our short inspirational thoughts of the day, and our following grew. What started out as a few people promoting kindness and goodwill turned into a movement. In every city, there are Light-Bearers making a difference and we want you to join us.

Everyone needs inspiration. It doesn’t matter what spiritual belief you hold dear, you have the Light inside you. Kindness, compassion, empathy, encouragement are all attributes of the Light. In this book, you’ll find a ninety second inspirational thought for each day of the year. You’ll be inspiring people to spread the Light daily with our collection of inspirational thoughts. From giving of yourself to simply smiling, these are easy concepts for anyone to apply!

Exerpts: 

Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you never know who would love the person you hide. –Unknown

You are special.  You are unique.  There is no one in this world who is like you.  You have a specific number of DNA sequences and nothing can duplicate it.

Are you living your life as a certified original?  Or are you trying to blend in?

Be who you are by being authentic.  Look at the above quote and ask yourself if you are allowing your originality to shine.

I sure am!

As a writer, author and blogger, there are so many people who tell me that I must do a whole list of things to be successful.  Do I?

No!

Why?  Because I am staying true to my original self and being authentic.  I am me, MRS N.  I am doing things my way and following my heart.  I don’t worry about my blogging numbers or the fact that no one has signed me yet.

Instead, I am being me and staying true to myself.  The followers will come and I will be signed.  I am enjoying the journey and learning a lot about myself.  I am growing and learning and you can do the same.

Look deep into yourself and find your authentic self.  Don’t worry about what people think or how they may view you.  Instead, be true to yourself and be authentic.

You are a certified original!!
Excerpt #2:
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it. – Edith Wharton

Are you spreading the Light in your corner of the world?

I live in an old neighborhood in my town. The houses and buildings are established with trees towering over the streets. I love it!

As someone who walks every day, I run into a lot of elderly people. Many of them smile and are friendly. I stop and chat with them for a moment or two.

Why?

It makes their day and it’s my way of spreading the Light. It doesn’t take any effort on my part and their faces light up.

Want to make someone’s day? Stop what you’re doing for one second and say hello. Acknowledging another person and wishing them a good day is a great way of spreading the Light inside you.

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it.
Excerpt #3:
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world. – Harriet Tubman

I have a dream.  My dream is to be a writer, blogger and author.  My dream is to use words to uplift people and change the world.  I continue to work hard on my dream. Achieving a dream doesn’t mean the work stops.

What is your dream?

No matter what your dream is or how far-fetched it may seem, you can make your dream come true!  According to Harriet Tubman, all you need is strength, patience and passion.  Sure, it takes a lot of work but let me tell you, it is worth it!

Can dreams change the world?  You bet!  Harriet Tubman is the woman who created the Underground Railroad.  She had a dream of her people being free.  Through her internal strength, she created a network of brave men and women who helped a multitude of slaves get to the North.  She didn’t fear death because she had a dream and she was passionate about her dream.

Today, take a few moments and write down your innermost dreams.  Then outline a plan to make your dream come true.  List all the things you may encounter to prevent you from making your dream come true.  Finally, come up with a plan to defeat those obstacles and make your dream come true!

Your dreams can change the world!  Your internal strength, patience and passion will make it possible.
