Seek Happiness in God!

When you look for happiness in all of the wrong places, you end up disappointed. People and things will always disappoint you…your spouse, family and friends will somehow let you down…and so will a new house, car and all things material…although these things can bring you temporary happiness, why settle for anything less than permanent. One thing is for sure…God will never disappoint you. Seek true happiness in Him and you cannot be broken.

Grateful! 

Life can be tough at times but God made you even more tough to deal with any and every difficult situation that comes your way. Life can be many things but one thing is for sure…Life is a precious gift that also comes with happy, rewarding and precious moments that are meant to be shared and cherished forever. Be grateful for those moments! Those are the ones that count the most in life.

Talk Tuesday: Care…Less!

IMG_4180.JPG
The less you worry about the silly or petty things, the better off you will be.
The less you focus on the haters, the stronger you will be.
The less the importance of other people’s negative opinions of you, the happier you will be. After all, other people’s opinions of you are none of your business so why carry such a heavy load on your shoulders when you really don’t have to? Better yet, lighten up that excess weight by dusting off your shoulders and letting go of all of that mess. No worries, no haters and no shade!
The less you care about that stuff, the happier you will be.

Happy Tuesday!

Talk Tuesday: What Makes You Happy?

IMG_4036.JPG
Find out what makes you happy, joyful and excited and do it repeatedly. Whatever brings a smile to your face or puts you in good spirits is your source of happiness. You deserve the best in life so why not focus on the things that bring out the radiant, joyous star in you. Life is too short to be unhappy, miserable and down (for too long). Enjoy life to the fullest!

My family, my friends and God make me happy. I’m happy when I dance, sing and listen to my favourite music aloud. It may be obvious but (online, in-store or window) shopping makes me happy too. Another thing that brings me happiness is blogging so thank you for taking the time to visit StarInMoi and for your ongoing love & support. I appreciate all of you, my blogging fam!

So tell me, what makes you happy?

Happy Tuesday!

Think Thursday: Don’t Be Too Concerned With Others!

IMG_3872.PNG
We all face some type of pressure at different stages of our lives and although it can have a positive effect on behaviour, it can also be negative.

First, we are encouraged to act right, to excel in school and to get a job, all while dealing with the pressures of bullies, alcohol, tobacco, sex & drugs. Then there is pressure to find a husband and if you are still single by (insert age here), the questions start coming: “Why are you still single!? Is there something wrong with you!?” If you are in a serious relationship and you’ve past the X-month/year mark, you get the: “Where’s the ring!? When is the wedding!?” Let’s not forget the newlyweds the day after the wedding: “When is the baby coming!? You’re not getting any younger. Your clock is ticking!”

Heard it all before!!!…whether it was directed at me or someone close to me and to that I say: Keep your comments & questions to yourself! Your may have good intentions and you may mean well but it’s just not fair to the other person. You don’t know their journey, what they’ve been through or what they’re dealing with so it’s best to just keep it on mute.
No one needs that type of pressure in life.

So…for all those dealing with THE PRESSURE (moi included!), don’t be too concerned with what others think or say. Just let go and let God! Doing this will bring you true happiness!

Happy Thursday!

Talk Tuesday: Pick A Reason!

IMG_3450.JPG
Today, think about what makes you happy. What brings you happiness? Concentrate on that. Reflect on it. Focus on that ‘happy’ moment and see how you can create more of it. Life is so much better with love, joy & happiness so it’s important to include these in our lives.

There are so many reasons to be happy. One of my reasons is family. Although I didn’t get to pick mine, I’m so thankful that God blessed me with an amazing one. What’s your reason for happiness?

Happy Tuesday!

Follow these 3 simple life rules and see your life change for the better!

▫️Happiness is key to living a great life. This emotional state of well-being can cause such a positive chain reaction. Something as simple as smiling can go a long way. Less frowns, more smiles. It’s contagious! 😊

▫️Brightness is an attribute of perception in which the visual target appears to be radiating. Well, that target is you! You were born to shine bright so bring out the Star In You!

▫️Uniqueness is what makes you different from everyone else. There is one and only one you. Embrace it and be true to who you are. There is much beauty in that.

Happy Friday!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the beautiful mothers out there. Past, Present, New (Congrats Mona!) and Soon to Be Mothers!

A special shout out to the greatest of them all…I love you Mom!!! 💗💓💕💞💖💘

Thank you for your unconditional love, your compassion, all of the sacrifices and the labour you invested into us, your children…you are truly amazing!

She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.
(Proverbs 31:25-31 NIV)

Je t’aime mamy Chérie!
