There are no accidents, Patricia Bokowski.
If it’s appeared on your life’s radar, this is why: to teach you that dreams come true; to reveal that you have the power to fix what’s broken and heal what hurts; to catapult you beyond seeing with just your physical senses; and to lift the veils that have kept you from seeing that you’re already the person you dreamed you’d become.
And believe me, that was one heck of a dream.

Today is WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY.
And, in honor of that, I wanted to write a blog on staying positive in a negative world (which is what I believe we are dealing with these days).
I know life isn’t easy these days.
My best advice, keep as much of the negativity that’s being thrown at us on a daily basis, out of your life!
Turn off the news.
Unfollow or block those nasty posts that show up in your feeds (you know the ones I’m talking about).
And, everyday, do something that makes you happy👈👈👈
Are you giving into all the negativity going on these days?
It’s not wonder there are so many unhappy people out there.
Because WAY too many people are!
You need to learn to tune it out.
Turn it off.
And find a new lane.
That’s how you get to where you want to be.👈👈👈
Making a positive decision you are going to do something.
And then actually doing it.
Not making excuses of why you can’t do it.
Like, there’s a pandemic.
Or, not a good time right now.
Listen, if you really think about it.
There’s never a good time to do anything.
You just do it!

The magic of new beginnings.👆👆👆
Even in the midst of darkness.
Beautiful things can happen.
Never lose hope.
If you look back in history, many beautiful things came out in the worst of times.
I don’t know about anyone else, but my business is doing better now than ever.
I’m also happier than I’ve ever been.
Beautiful things happening all around.👈👈👈
You just have to see.
And not just with your eyes.
Or, said another way.
What are you made of?
I’ve learned over the last six months that I am a whole lot stronger than I ever thought.
I’ve also learned to stick up for myself more than I ever before.👈👈👈
I guess that’s what happens when you work through a pandemic, with a take no prisoners kind of attitude!
How many people agree with that?
I know I would.👈👈👈
There is a quote from George Burns: “I would rather fail at what I love then succeed at what I hate.”
I worked for over twenty years in the Corporate World,
And it wasn’t until I started my business eight years that I found my true calling.
I also knew inside, that there was something bigger I was supposed to be doing.
That’s the thing.
When you have that inside you, you owe it not only to yourself.
But the world, to follow that passion.https://www.ninefrogs.com
I talk about happiness a lot in my blogs (just like smiling).
I talk about it a lot because I still see so many unhappy faces.
Next time you go to 7-11, hang around the coffee station and look at all the unhappy faces (hopefully one of them is not yours 😉
People look at life all wrong, which is partly what makes them so miserable.
Hopefully you are not one of those people.👈👈👈
And if you are, start following me on TikTok, guaranteed to make you smile 😉
Actually, you should start following me on TikTok anyway!
Who doesn’t want a smile a day!
That’s one of the key things to living a positive life.
And that’s showing up, as best you can, every day!
Doing your best.
Looking your best.
Giving your best.
Being your BEST!
Life is not a dress rehearsal.
It’s the real deal.
So if you aren’t busy dying, GET BUSY LIVING👉👉👉
That’s when you know you’re doing it right!👆👆👆
Living life to the fullest.
Doing what you love, with the people you love.
Surrounding yourself with people and things (not too many) that make life great!
At the end of day, you can say to yourself, “I did my best.”
And tomorrow, I will do every better!
