How to have a Happy Day

Posted on July 14th, by Ally in Mama Bird's lessons, Uncategorized. 1 Comment

I am a big believer in how you start your day will set the tone for the rest of your day…and possibly your week.  It begins with the very first thoughts you begin to think BEFORE your feet even hit the deck!

The way you choose to start your day mentally can be just as important as eating a healthy breakfast (even if it’s a smoothie or protein shake) and brushing your teeth every morning!  Just like your body needs the fuel from your breakfast to give you energy for the rest of the day, your mind needs to be fed healthy thoughts to start the day off right as well!

Here are some tips on how to begin your day so that it can be a happy day with wonderful experiences!

As soon as your eyes open and your mind awakens from sleep, SMILE as you realize it’s a brand new day, a fresh start, a new beginning and know that ANYTHING is possible!
Be GRATEFUL!!!  Come up with 3 things that you are grateful for and if you feel comfortable, say them out loud to get that positive energy out into your day and the world!  My favorites are: “Thank you for … Read More »

Day 11 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-gratitude

Posted on February 4th, by Ally in Uncategorized. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:


What is the first thing you do or think about when you wake up?

Do you rush out of bed in a frenzy to get the kids fed and off to school, all the while raising your voice like a drill sergeant only to leave you with feelings of guilt and anguish for how your morning started? Or do you begin your day with thoughts of gratitude for your blessings, leaving you feeling refreshed, joyful and eager to start the new day?

Starting your day with thoughts of gratitude can make a huge difference in how your day proceeds. As more of your thoughts and words become positive, you’ll start attracting more & more positive experiences.

By expressing gratitude, it helps create positive energy inside you that radiates out into the world around you and in return, helps create wonderful experiences for you. This is when good things start to happen everywhere you turn. People will begin to gravitate toward you because you’re so refreshing to be around. They want to inhale the energy you emanate so they too, can feel the … Read More »

Positive kid-firmations Part 3

Posted on November 12th, by Ally in Uncategorized. 3 comments

For all of you faithful Feeding Sparrows readers and fans, I know it has been a while since my last post and I apologize.  You see, life works exactly the way it is supposed to work.  Nothing is a coincidence and everything happens for a reason.

With that being said, I have a little story to share with you.  If you recall, I started a series called, ‘Positive Kid-firmations’ in which I promised would entail a 5 part series.   As most of you know, I have shared with you part 1 &  part 2 of the Positive Kid-firmations series over a month ago.  Part 3 of the series is Positive Kid-firmations for health.  For some reason about a month ago, when it came time to write the blog post,  I just wasn’t feeling the inspiration to write.  Writing this blog, “Feeding Sparrows” has taught me more than I ever imagined that it would.  The most important thing it has taught me is “Everything will happen in its divine time.”  Meaning, I have learned never to “force” the writing I do on this blog.  I have learned that if I give it time and wait for the inspiration to come, that … Read More »
