Join Purex in Supporting Make-A-Wish and Giveaway

As a Purex Insider received coupons to giveaway for posting about  Make-A-Wish program with Purex. In addition I will be entered to win drawings by posting these details.  However, all opinions expressed here are my own.

As a moms of a child with a life threatening syndrome, I understand the importance of making every moment count.  When a child is fighting a disorder it can be easy for them to loose hope and want to give up.  Being able to make a once in a life time wish come true keeps them focused on life.  I am really excited to see a brand I love like Purex helping such a worth cause like Make-A-Wish.

Hershey’s Spread the Possibilities Sample Share

As a member of Crowdtap I was selected to host a Hershey’s Spread the Possibilities Holiday Sampling.  

I have never used a chocolate spread before so I was not sure what to do with it.  When it arrived I just pulled out some my favorite snack items and gave it a try.   I was so excited to try all kinds of flavor combinations. 

We incorporated Hershey's spread into all of our snacking.  We gave our fruit a boost by trying Hershey's spread on strawberries and apples.  Next I mixed it with something salty; gram-crackers and pretzel.  I  also tried it on a Peanut butter, banana and Chocolate spread sandwich.  Oh yea and don't forget some chocolate spread on your my kids mini-waffles.  I added some marshmallows to the mini-waffles for a happy face!

 The sky is the limit with what my imagination wants to spread this chocolaty goodness on top!  

What do you associate Hershey brand with? 

Now do you really wish you had Hershey's Chocolate spread?  

Disclaimer:  I received a sample of Hershey's Chocolate spread from Crowdtap and Hershey's Brand.  However all opinions expressed her are my own.

Why New Year Resolutions don't work.

Today is the first day of the New Year.  It is full of hope and anticipation of what this year will bring. Many people use this time to make New Year resolutions.  It is the same thing year after year; lose weight, make more money,  be a better person, ect.  So why is it when February come we somehow lose momentum in our resolutions?

There are many reasons why, but I think it all come from making a resolution and not a goal. A goal is a plan you make to achieve a desire result.  Whereas a New Year resolutions is a generalize promise you make to yourself to do  (or not do ) something.  So why is it so hard to keep those promises we made to ourselves? The answer is simple; we lie to ourselves every day.  We tell ourselves we cannot do it and it becomes self-realization prophecy.  So what are we to do?
  1. Pray.  God knows what is in store for you this year, and praying with help you know what he wants for you this year too.  It is also important to read God’s Word.  How can you know what God wants if you do not know who he is.  Reading God’s Word regularly with help you to know him and understand him.  There are many daily bible plans available for free on the internet. (BibleGateway is my favorite)
  2. Keep it Simple.  For example if you would like to lose weight.  Don’t make a commitment to never eat chocolate again or to go to the gym and workout every day.  Most likely you will lose your momentum in a short amount of time.  Instead make a commitment to make the best food choices where every you are eating.  Make a commitment to walk and take the stairs instead of using the elevator.
  3. Goals.  Take each big goal and make it into smaller achievable goals.  This will give you a greater since of accomplishment when each small goal is met.  
  4. Plan.  Once you know what goals God wants for you.  Plan it out to make it easier for you to achieve.  

Now you are ready to start the New Year off right.  You can rest assure by the end of February you will still be on your way to a life God has planned for you.

What is your Goal for this year?
