This week's song is by fellow Canadian Serena Ryder, whose music I've only recently come to know...and love.  I am also thankful for how open she has been about her struggles with depression, and this song is an anthem for anyone who has ever been down. 
So turn it up!
What song has you shining this week? Let's build a playlist together!
 
 
My coach Michelle encouraged me to use this week's smile time to record the things I am proud to have accomplished over the past 7 days. Here are the highlights.

*finished not 1, but 2 articles for submission to Danielle LaPorte's upcoming magazine
*first ever Online Sunshine Songs to Shine By
*striving for the turkey badge AND GETTING THERE!!!
*taking the time to relish in the joy of accomplishing something and rewarding myself for it
*dream time (3 bedrooms, 2 baths, yard, garden with corn, cucumbers, lettuce, cabbage, potatoes & collards)
*recognizing resistance, committing to a task I knew would be hard and following through using the one step at a time method
*finding a way to refine my schedule while maintaining flexibility. Thanks Tsh!!!
