UrDreamPlanner's Monday Inspiration: "No Lazy Monday!"

Today, I officially declare every Monday... 

"No Lazy Monday!"

The more I learn about God and his amazingness I want to share with others. Over these past 6 months I have learned that how you think will affect how you act. With that being said, you can be productive every day and/or lazy everyday if that is what you tell yourself to do.

It's time to take back control of Mondays! The week does not have to start out dragging. Join me in declaring every Monday, "No Lazy Monday!". Start every week on a productive mission to accomplish your weekly goals. Make a mental note that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.

Take initiative over your life everyday. Don't allow the funny pictures, slogans and more to determine how you spend your Monday or any other day of the week. Discover your goals and dreams and set out to make them happen, every day of the week. Create a renewed mindset daily, that sets your passion for life on fire!!! Take the stand and declare every Monday for yourself to be a "No Lazy Monday!", but only do it if you really want the change. 
Let's be productive & prosperous every day of the week! 

I Declare every Monday, "No Lazy Monday!"

Talk To Me:
Are you ready to declare Monday, "No Lazy Monday!"? How do you spend your Monday? Is Monday a day of production or dragging? What allows you to stay productive on a Monday? Any additional inspiration or motivational advice; please share below in the comment zone, so our readers can read it!! :-D

UrDreamPlanner's Monday Inspiration: Sing a Song!

Happy Monday!! 

I feel so inspired to take this week by the horns and ride it on out until next Monday!!! Who else is with me?? If you are wondering why I feel so inspired, it is because I have this amazing song in my heart and every time I get discouraged or just as I'm ridding down the road, this song comes to mind and I start singing! This song allows me to look at life with refreshed eyes!

Israel Houghton - I Will Search

This song has inspired me to embrace the many changes in my life. I asked God: "Am I scared and not ready or am I scared because I am ready??" Well, I am not going to tell you what he shared with me, but I do have a conclusion and I feel at peace about it! I love this song, "I Will Search", because the words speak truth for me, the beat pumps me up and just makes me smile as I sing it!! I love it, I truly LOVE it!!! 

Find a song that can inspire you to make a difference in your life and sing it until you find another song that inspires you in a different way!

Sing Out Loud!

Talk To Me:
Do you have a song that inspires you? What do you sing to get you motivated about your life journey? What style of music gets you inspired? Share you life song with our readers and let's inspire each other! Use our comment zone below to share your song!

UrDreamPlanner's Friday Fun: Play Board Games!

Today, on the East Coast, it's raining cats and dogs!! Rain for most means staying indoors, finding a blanket and your favorite movie, and laying on the couch with your family. Just in case you are not in the mood for laying around and being comfy all day/weekend; play board games!

Board Games:
Chutes & Ladders

Do these board games bring back memories for you? They do for me! Monopoly was my favorite board game to play; although I only finished it completely one time and won without having to quit because I went bankrupt..LOL! I always ended up in jail and had to try to roll doubles, never landed in Free Parking and I always tried to buy up the pink, red, yellow & dark blue properties; and stack them with red hotels and green I always picked the car! Such fun memories while writing this post!! What was your favorite board game to play?

When the weather is sour, like it is on today, pull out the board games. Pop some pop corn, order a pizza or two, gather the family and sit on the floor or at the kitchen table and play! Not only does rainy weather wash your car, but it gives you the opportunity to bond with your family & friends. You get to learn more about each others personalities, enjoy each others laughter and you give your televison a rest. 

So reach high up into your closet or take a trip into the basement and spread out the games. Allow each person to have a chance to pick a game that everyone will play, even if that means playing a game twice! Don't let the rain spoil your day! Have some fun and play some board games. ;-)

Play for Fun! 

Talk To Me:
Did you play board games as a child. Do you have a favorite board game; what is it? What is your best memory of playing board games; share below! What else besides play games do you do for indoor fun when it's rainy outside? Share your thoughts and experiences below in the comment zone! :-D

UrDreamPlanner's Wednesday Knowledge: 3 "Must-Have Meals" on Wedding Day!

3 "Must-Have Meals" on Wedding Day!

It's Wedding Day and your excitement it so great or your nerves are so strong, that eating is not at the forefront of your mind. However, it is still important that you eat three meals on Wedding Day.

Meal #1: A Relaxed Breakfast!
(Hit all the food groups in this meal. Don't eat a heavy breakfast, but make sure you eat a complete meal. During this time, you are the most relaxed in the sense you are just waking up and no prep has begun. Enjoy this down time and enjoy a nice breakfast, alone or with your girls!)

Meal #2: Snack To Go!
(By this time, you are in full blown Wedding Prep! None the less, your next "real" meal is not until the sun is setting and therefore you need a snack. Eat some graham crackers, cheese crackers, gold fish, pretzels, etc. Eat a snack with a little substance but something that is still light. It is important to feed your body through out the course of the day. Be sure to drink water with this snack. Staying hydrated is very important on wedding day.)

Meal #3: Sit Down Dinner!
(At this point you are married!! Congratulations!!! Now, sit down and eat dinner! I promise, although it may not seem like it, your guest want you to eat as well! If you eat when they eat, you will have time to eat. The night does go by quickly, none the less, you paid $100 (more or less) each for your plates, so my dear Bride & Groom, enjoy it!)

Bonus Meal #4: The Midnight Feast!
(If for some reason, you didn't or did eat, you can still ask your venue if there are any extra meals left over. Majority of venues do have something left over, because all your guests didn't attend. Ask to take these extra meal portions with you and enjoy a midnight feast! Again, you did pay for all these meals, so why not enjoy them!!)

Wedding day happens quickly...don't get so lost in all the excitement that, you don't eat. Be healthy and have a memorable wedding day!

Happy Meal Time!

Talk To Me:
What is your wedding day meal plan? Do you have one? Married already!? Did you eat on your wedding day? Most couples eat breakfast, but did you eat at your reception? Share your wedding day eating experience and any advice that you feel would benefit the readers!! Leave your comments below in the comment zone. :-)
