Friday Facts

It's time for the hard cold facts!

Since my Wednesday Willingness was on positive thinking I decided to google the benefits of a positive attitude.

I found these on

  1. You are more motivated to get things done and achieve your goals when you have a positive attitude.
  2. You expect positive outcomes and results, and you usually get them.
  3. Problems are no longer problems, but become opportunities to learn and grow.
  4. You have higher self-esteem. You believe in yourself and what you are capable of.
  5. You see opportunities where other people see problems.
  6. Your thinking is more creative.
  7. You have more inspiration and you rely less on others to help motivate you.
  8. You are generally much happier.
  9. You have much less stress.
  10. Your health is better because you are less stressed.
  11. Your immune system is stronger.
  12. You will live a longer life.
  13. You have more friends. Who wants to hang out with somebody who is negative?
  14. You are more influential.
  15. People will respect you more.
  16. You make a better leader or manager.
  17. Your significant other will like being around you more.
  18. Achieving success is easier and more fun.
  19. You have more perseverance since you expect things will turn out well in the end
  20. You have more energy. Negativity can really drain you!
  21. You will affect others have a more positive attitude. Attitudes are contagious.
  22. You bounce back from setbacks much faster.
  23. You enjoy your work more.
  24. Your kids will like being around you more.
  25. You enjoy more success in all areas of life.
Holy cow! Who knew such a small thing would change so many other things! It's amazing how something so good for you and benefit so many different aspects about your life. I am definitely going to try to be more positive now that I know all this! I especially like number 17: Your significant other will like being around you more. That is a great reason to want to be positive all the time. The other 24 benefits are now just bonuses!

If you ever find it difficult to think positively try exercising or meditating on a regular basis!
Both really help the brain and body!

Thursday Ideas

Today I'm going to post some ideas for St. Patty's Day. After all, it is already March 3rd! Where does time go?? Anyway, I was browsing the Internet yesterday to prepare for my Thursday Ideas post today and I came across this lovely St. Patty's Day Party idea. It is so cute! They have so many ideas. I found this on a blog called Wants and Wishes. I am so glad I came across this blog! Click HERE to visit them.
AND the best part is they sale this party set on etsy. Click HERE

Ok so here are the adorable party pictures

These pictures make me want to throw a St Patricks Day party!

Or even just steal a few ideas to surprise my hubby with.

I think the soda idea would be great for couples and I love the lucky charm cereal as sprinkles.


Surprise your spouse/significant other/kids in the morning by filling their shoes with leprechaun goodies.

Surprise your spouse/significant other/kids with a "green" breakfast in the morning by adding food coloring to pancakes, waffles, eggs, milk, etc.

I love these clover pancakes from Little Nummies

Daily Posts

I'm going to start a new thing called Daily Posts.

I am really excited about this. Here are the Daily Topics:

Monday Mania are ideas that I come up with. I will post these on Monday's. Hopefully it will be every Monday. I will have the whole weekend to stir up ideas and the best part is that you will have the whole week to prepare them and do them for your significant other!

We all know I love to cook! So on Tuesday I will post recipes. These recipes will always be recipes I have previously tried. Now I never come up with my own recipes. I wish I could but I am not that talented. A lot of times I modify recipes a find online just a little! But i usually stick straight to the recipe. I will only post recipes that I find are AMAZING. These recipes will be for all meals.

Wednesday Willingness is going to be a day dedicated to do something for your spouse/significant other. These will be simple tasks such as no arguments for a day or positive thinking day, etc. You will see an improvement in your relationship with just these small willing adjustments.

I know, I know, Thursday didn't get a catchy title like the rest. Sorry, it's all I could come with.
Thursday Ideas will be all about linking other bloggers ideas or ideas I find online
(maybe I should call it Thursday Links???)
These ideas will be for anything! Crafts, food, home decor, etc.

And finally.....

Friday Facts is going to be all about interesting facts I find about dating and relationships, exercise, eating, being positive, etc. I think these facts will serve as a real eye opener and help us improve our everyday lifestyle!

There we go! Five full days of Creative Romance.

And.. since today is Wednesday Willingness I think we all could work on our positive attitudes today.
Let's really try to be happy and positive with everything that comes our way today.
Throw negativity out the door and look for the good in everything!
 After all we are already halfway through the week!!!

Have a good day!
