Inspirational thoughts are easier to find this time of the year when Thanksgiving is getting closer and closer (as well as Christmas of course). My question to all of you is how many of you actually implement these thoughts? Hoping you all say that you do give great thought, here are the picks for November’s Thoughts to Inspire you.
If you must look back, do so forgivingly. If you must look forward, do so prayerfully. However, the wisest thing you can do is be present in the present….Gratefully-Maya Angelou
The secret of being happy is accepting where you are in life and making the most out of every day. –Buddha
So we do not lose heart. Though our
outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.
2 Corinthians 4:16
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say our nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good. -Maya Angelou
Father, may my children see their many blessings and be grateful. – Colossians 3:17
Stop talking about your problems. Start talking about your joys.
Before I let you all go back to your daily lives, can I ask you a favor? Not a favor for me, but a favor for you. In the beginning of this month, make a short list of the most important things you are grateful for, and every morning before you start your day, read through your list, and give yourself a few minutes just to reflect on it. It will help to give yourself some purpose to continue the work you do.

I’m April, a wife and mother of two. Since the end of 2010 I have been battling autoimmune diseases: and facing those have left me with limited physical abilities, limited energy, and limited funds; so I created this blog to document my journey : to simplifying my life, hopefully finding tips and tricks and resources to help save me time, money, and energy. I am hoping not only to share my journey, but to inspire others with similar challenges. Personally I think everyone would welcome ways to save time, money, and energy, but to some it is imperative. The content you can expect to see includes life hacks, organizational and time management resources, tips and tricks to saving money, ideas and resources for making money doing simple tasks or passively, and simple inexpensive gift giving ideas. To those of you who may be concerned that this may just be one big pity party, I want to be clear. I have conditions that have altered my abilities, but this is about taking as much control over my life as I possibly can, and to make it a positive experience. I will not however, turn anyone away if they ask about my illnesses specifically. Perhaps they are newly diagnosed, and need some advice that I haven’t shared. I encourage those individuals to contact me any time. I want people to be able to positively bounce ideas off of one another to make it a blog that everyone can benefit from.
