Don't Quit

The Whine-Wine Blog

Because every rant, rave or whine goes down better with a great glass of wine!!

Don’t Quit

This new year you started out with a bang. You were ready. You had your goals outlined. You did your vision board. Your resolutions were solidly in place. But now, 4 weeks into it you feel, well blah. You’ve lost your enthusiasm. Now what? January is almost over and you haven’t made your first million yet.

Listen, I know we’re just a few weeks into the new year and despair has already set in. I know how you feel. I’ve had some friends already loose someone this year. I’ve had some friends who are struggling financially. I’ve had some friends who are just plain sad about where they are in life, not to mention that apprehension and anxiety you feel when you turn on the television and see the soap opera playing out in the White House.

So today I want to offer up some encouragement. We’re all family, right? So, do this for me – every time you have those feelings coming on, breath. Say thank you that you’re alive. Then thank God, the universe or whatever higher power you subscribe to for everything you already have. Send positive vibes into the universe so the universe can respond in kind.

Don’t give into your despair. Don’t let negativity rest in your house, your soul. You are alive today because you have a purpose to fulfill. I suggest you get busy fulfilling your purpose. The world is waiting for your unique gift! Besides, if all else fails drink more wine!

Until next time…Enjoy the journey!
