Become a Coupon Queen- D.I.Y Sundays

What are Coupons?


 A coupon is a voucher, ticket, or document that can be exchanged for a financial discount or rebate when purchasing a product. A coupon will feature a specific savings amount or other special offer to persuade consumers to purchase specific goods or services or to purchase from specific retailers. 


 Where are coupons found?


 Coupons are often widely distributed through mail, magazines, newspapers, the Internet, directly from the retailer, and mobile devices such as cell phones. 




 Why Use Coupons? 


 This one is a no- brainer. Couponing turns your money into a rubber band. You can use less money to purchase the things you want. You get more bang for your buck. 




 Now you can become a coupon QUEEN:

The Power of FEAR- Positive Wednesdays

Fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.

Unknown
I recently had the opportunity to embark on an exciting venture that will aid in my personal growth. This is something that I have dreamt of. Something that i want but have never fully believe that i can accomplish because of FEAR.


FEAR puts us in a box and basically allow us to sabbotage ourselves. Often times we do this by calculating all the worst senerios that can possibly happen. This is what i have been doing. Somehow, i have moved from a space of being fearless, estatic, hopeful to replaying all the possible what ifs. That is the power of fear. It has the ability to paralyse us into submission. 


What are your fears? How will you over come them today?


Quote of the Day:


You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt

Water is Life!!!!!

Have you stopped to think what you would do if you turned on your pipe and there was no water in it  forever. Well for many people in Africa, South Asia, and Central America they don't have to think about it. this is their reality. 


We often forget that water is life and without it we cannot survive. This is why water.org  is so important. Water.org is a nonprofit organization that has transformed hundreds of communities in Africa, South Asia, and Central America by providing access to safe water and sanitation.



If you want to make a difference stop by water.org and buy a bottle of water for the needy.

Managing Stress - DIY Sundays

We need some amount of stress in our daily lives to motivate us. However, being too stress can be detrimental to our health.  Some of the physical symptoms of stress includes: headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain and problems sleeping. If you can’t change the stressor, change yourself. You can adapt to stressful situations and regain your sense of control by changing your expectations and attitude.Here are some stress management strategies: Reframe problems.Try to view stressful situations from a more positive perspective. Rather than fuming about a traffic jam, look at it as an opportunity to pause and regroup, listen to your favorite radio station, or enjoy some alone time.

Look at the big picture. Take perspective of the stressful situation. Ask yourself how important it will be in the long run. Will it matter in a month? A year? Is it really worth getting upset…

Comment Please!!!!!!

1com·mentnoun\ˈkä-ˌment\
2 : a note explaining, illustrating, or criticizing the meaning of a writing 3 a: an observation or remark expressing an opinion or attitude <critical comments>b: a judgment expressed indirectly


We all love comments and we all want as many comments per post as possible. Why? Simply put,  for some of us comments give us feedback, it offers us a way to interact with our readers, it is also a sign of approval. Approval? Yes, often we think that persons like the post by the number of comments that post is able to generate. Often this is not a bad thing because we are able to see what our readers like. This in turn informs our blogging.

However, we tend to grade our blogs by the number of comments that we are able to generate. Often we think that our blogs are not worthwhile because we are not bun-barded with comments. This idea I disagree with. Have you ever read a great post, one that you totally love, one that makes you crack up and then you just don't com…

Remembering Haiti........

Image
Today marks one year to the date of the earthquake in Haiti.  Let us take the time to remember that thousand lost their lives. Let us also remember that in great darkness there was light. The earthquake in Haiti also showed that in times of crisis humanity always finds a way to shine. There were thousand of people who rose to the occasion and donated to the cause.   They showed that the human spirit will always rise.

Positive Wednesday- Starting Over!!!!

A New Year brings with it renewed hope. It Also brings a sense of new beginnings. This offers us the possibility of starting over, moving on from the past, and correcting mistakes that have been made. 


What do I hope to achieve this year? What will I do to make this a  successful year? How will I improve personal and professional life? These are the questions we often ask ourselves. Most times the answers to these questions are not easy. By asking these questions of ourselves we realize that there are a number of changes we will have to make in our lives. In essence, we will have to start over.  


Just remember that starting over does not mean smooth sailing. So if and when you start to take those first steps on your new path, just be aware that although failure is a possibility; it should not over shadow your journey. In addition,  if you do fall or lose your way, it is okay. Just remember to get up brush yourself off and learn from your mistakes. 




'Starting over isn't easy, but …

Watching The Dollars and Cents - D.I.Y Sundays

Image
The New Year has come and Christmas has gone.  All the parties are over; the decorations are coming down.  What to do now? For some of us,  we find that the New Year is seeing us with a lot less money than last year. It is a matter of fact that the world's economy is  causing all the watch the pennies.  We often hear about budgeting but budgeting can take you only so far. I applaud those persons who can consistently stick to their budget. But for most of us, budgeting is a never ending battle between common sense and human desires. For others, there is just not enough money to budget with.  Therefore, I wanted to focus on some lifestyle choices we can make to help us save money.

Putting Purpose to Our Voices

Image
As bloggers,  we often get so caught up in gaining following, increasing stats, writing great posts and the list goes on. We often forget that we should add purpose to our voices. When I say this I mean, that blogging should not only be about being the best or the brightest. It should be about adding something of substance and worth to the digital world. One of the awesome things about being a bloggers is that we are able to gain people's attention, highlight various situations and put ideas and things into respective. 






I have discovered that Jennifer James from the Mom Bloggers Club is launching a project called Mom Bloggers for Social Good. It is a global volunteer coalition of mothers who care about important issues like maternal health, women and children, and labour rights and want to use their blogging and social media platforms to spread the word about the good work organizations are doing around the world.


If you would love to become a founding member of Mom Bloggers for Soc…

Happy Anniversary Me!!!!

I cannot believe it has been one year since I started blogging. I say this with a smile on my face.  I must say I have come a long way. With that i can also say, I have a long way to go.


Why Lioness Rebirth?


Lioness Rebirth seems an odd name for a blog. A Lioness is strong, independent, protective, loyal, a warrior, smart, etc. Rebirth is a renewal so to speak.  Lioness Rebirth is a brand that represents that renewal in all of us. It is focused on helping individuals to achieve their best self by providing information that matters. With all of this in mind, why not use the name Lioness Rebirth.
