On this day I choose to encourage other rather than critique. I choose to lift up my fellow man rather than tear down.
On this day I choose peace and love over hatred and spite. On this day I share this message with you.
Make it a GREAT day and spread love.

Not sure what the hack a Tank-O-Lantern is? Maybe this will help.
I absolutely love this wonderful poster by graphic designer Francesca Ramos. This was created before quote graphics started appearing all over the place. It beautifully illustrates these ten fundamentals. I have this framed and hanging next to our doorway. I shared this here over a year ago but thought it was a good time to share it again.
There used to be a free pdf available for download on cargocollective.com but it’s no longer there.
You might be able to get one by contacting Francesca directly. Other samples of her work can be found at francesca-ramos.com
Happy #Monday !

Strive for progress, not perfection
When trying to reach your goals, I feel you need to have a realistic approach. Setting your standards to high may deviate you from the path you have chosen and you will find yourself making more excuses not to reach your goal because they are just to darn hard to reach and you have not given yourself the credit you needed ... because in your eyes, you have failed.
Let's think about this for a minute. Let's say you want to lose weight, or maybe you want to be the top income owner of your business, or you want to plan your next vacation.
All of the above are very possible and realistic goals to have, but they do not happen over night and sometimes it may even take months. Going into the goal thinking that your going to lose 50 pounds in 2 days, or build an empire in a week, not as realistic.
Inch by inch, it's a cinch. Yard by yard, it's hard.
Consider striving for small steps and compare them to the YOU, the day before. Give yourself a pat on the back because before you know it, the progress you have made from day 1 to day 20 then becomes building blocks to perfection.
Change your mindset ... perfection will never be had without progress. Focus on the daily actions you take towards your BIG goals, I promise, you will have less excuses, more rewards, and in the end ... your goal and dream will come true.
Why? Because you never set yourself up for failure from the beginning!
You have no excuses to fail in reaching what you want to achieve, unless you choose not to progress by making those small actions daily.
That choice is yours!

Thanks for checking out my profile! I am the social media manager and blogger for FatWallet.com, an online shopping site that will save you lots of money, but my best job is being wife to a great guy and mom to three funny, smart, and beautiful kids!
I blog about personal finance, frugal living, shopping, deals, and Black Friday on FatWallet.
My personal blog is becoming-me.com, where I share funny stories, inspiration, and encouragement to help others live a life they love. Stop by for some laughs or a kick in the butt to help you achieve those dreams on your bucket list now!
Want to start a blog but don't know where to start? Let me help! I've helped hundreds of people start and build a profitable online presence though blogging and social media.
I have a never-ending knack for finding myself in embarrassing situations. I can be passionate about healthy living, juicing and eating clean, when I'm not in the yummy comfort food, wine and coffee, mood! I can't cook! (Really I caught the home-ec oven on fire in high-school!) I can't sing (there isn't enough alcohol on the planet to get me to do karaoke. ) And my house is never spotless.
I'm honored you took the time to read my author profile. Will you connect with me so I can get to know you too?
