Joy: An Inside Job

"Joy is the organic state of your soul. It is not something you achieve; it is something you accept."~Robert Holden

Joy is one of the words that when I hear and say it, I get a quick boost. It's what I could call one of my happy words, but it also has this meaningful, heartfelt meaning that goes beyond just the sheer mention of the word. Joy is something that happens on the inside; real joy is intrinsic. You do not need anything or anyone to really experience it. A lot like happiness, joy is an inner job, something that you can cultivate and perpetuate from within by yourself. You can decide and choose joy, no matter what.

Like happiness, many times if we do not feel particularly joyful, we go on an outside hunt for it. We think and say to ourselves, "If I could just get this job." "If I could just lose 10 pounds." "If I could just buy that new car or home or dress or whatnot." Funny thing is (and something that I learned a long time ago is) that things, stuff and junk does not make us happy. Now, I like toys and trinkets as much as the next girl or guy, but they are just that.....toys and trinkets. They are things and things are something that I can live without. However, feelings of love, peace, joy, calm, serenity....now those are things I reach and stretch for. Those are the things that I cannot live without.

Attention: Blessings on a Sunday Morning

Thank you! Thank you!

Continuing on the theme of recognizing and giving attention to blessings. I want to start out by saying, "Thank you" to everyone and anyone who stumbles across my blog. I truly do appreciate you and your visit. Thanks for reading my words while wondering and exploring the possibilities right along with me.

So far today (10:40 am Central US time):

1) What can I be thankful for?

My son got the job that he wanted. Yesterday, he went for an interview and he got it! So that's definitely a cause for celebration! Woot! Woot!

This post and my previous one are based in part by Pam Grout and her books, E-Squared and E-Cubed, that are helping me to tap in and remember my connection to what she calls as the FP, the ultimate "field of potentiality."

It's still early yet and I'm sure that many more wonderful things are to come, I'll keep you posted and please, please share your miracles and blessings in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you!

Blessings: What you Focus on, Expands!

Source: foto76*

Since I believe that whatever you focus on expands, I want to start listing and writing about everyday miracles. I don't think we focus on the good enough, we definitely are conditioned and surrounded by the bad and the negative but I'm in the mindspace that I have abandoned from many years ago: Focus on the positive!

Source: DeathStockPhotos
At one time in my life, my goal was to become the most positive person I know. I achieved that for awhile but then I slid back into the sad realities of everyday life and its focus on the negative so I am returning to love, to joy and what's real....
I hope more people will join me in this quest.

February Bonuses! Let's Get it!

Time to Initiate a Game Change in your Life!

Source: num_skyman*

ZNZ is continuing their 25% Bonuses for February and what that means is that you can earn more for every person that you refer.


For example, if you refer 1 person to ZNZ One, the standard redemption would normally be $20 but with the 25% bonus, your award increases to $25.00.

Now, for people who want to make more or promote both sites, ZNZ PayPal usually pays $40 but now with the bonus, you can make $50 for each referral that you sign up!

If you are un- or underemployed, I urge you to take a look at these sites and get started promoting and referring, so that you can start earning something in 2015.


Are you ready?

This game of life is yours to win or lose, what do you choose?

More information about these sites are located here: 


If you need more information or help, contact me in the comments or shoot me an e-mail @ therealbeaufly@gmail.com

Let's Go Get It in 2015!

What I Know for Sure....

Image Courtesy of stockimages via freedigitalphotos.net

What I know for sure is.......

I know that I want to continually write posts that share my ideas, dreams and knowledge.

It seems that if we live long enough, and listen carefully enough, we can continue to grow through all of the ebbs and flows of our lives.

This post is dedicated to the years that I have been online, learning, making money from writing, editing, sharing and networking.

One thing I know for sure is that one should at some point, decide to bank on oneself. Wonderfully creative and exciting sites will come and go but there is nothing like banking on yourself to build a following, a readership and/or a clientele. The years that I spent working for others could have easily been spent on myself.

So, I say to you if you write, write!
If you draw, draw....

Whatever you do, do it with all of the gusto that you do and build something for yourself, your family and your future....

Make sure you are using, honing and growing your talents and creativity to build Team You!

There's nothing wrong with learning, growing or sharing, just make sure you are taking time out to get in tune with your own sense of vision and legacy!
