Day 5 – Happy St. Paddy’s Day!!

This is one of my favourite holidays!!  I think that it should become a day off here in Canada so that we all have an excuse to celebrate the little bit of Irish that’s in all of us.  I love the Irish!  Who doesn’t?!  Unfortunately there wasn’t any green beer for me tonight as I was too tired (again) to do anything exciting.  BUT!  I have to share this quote with you, which I have shared before in the past.

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up!

My festive green pants and I got home from work tonight and all I wanted to do was nothing (again), but it was Clori’s last night in Van before she heads off to Peru to volunteer on the mission trip.  Sheena being the great friend that she is, arranged for a bunch of us nurses to show up at her place without Clori knowing.  SURPRISE!!!  It was so great to see your excitement!!  I’m glad I got my butt out of the house just for that!

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. There’s rarely an occasion where you’ll be upset at yourself for showing up.  If it feels good, but you’re not necessarily feeling it, go anyways.  You’ll feel good once you get there and will probably leave with a smile on your face.  Even if you’re still tired, you’ll be tired AND smiling PLUS you’ll have new memories that no one can ever take from you.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

Smile with your heart!

  3. Hey Jen! I stumbled across your blog a couple days ago through a link on Alwyn’s page, and I love your motivation and drive! I’ve started a 40 day challenge with my sister and it is so nice being accountable to another person and a check list :) This quote you put up in particular really struck me today — I just get so tired sometimes, but I always feel better when I’m up and out of the house. Thanks for the challenge idea and this quote I wrote on my desk blotter :)
