Welcome to The Sunshine Spotlight - I am Kathy Marvel and I… am full of sunshine. I am doing what I love. That doesn’t mean the sun is always shining in my life because well.. life happens. And I am not claiming to be any sort of an expert in any way, shape, or form but I am here to talk about bringing sunshine into your life and others lives simply because it makes me happy and I want you to be happy, too - or at least happier - who doesn’t want to be happier? I’ll let you know what things I do that help me to Live Life Happily - Mostly - they may or may not work for you. I will let you know the things that I believe lead to a life of doing what you love - you may or may not agree. And I will give you tips that might help you to be the happiest you, you can be - take them or leave them. My goal is this: I am hoping you walk away from each episode with at least one thing that resonates with you and may help you to move towards living a happy life - mostly, or something that allows you to do life better. I am not a big league Podcaster (although I am a podcaster - just not a big leaguer - yet). I am not a life coach. I am not an expert in living your best life. I am just me - wife, mommy, friend, teacher, co-worker, writer, go-getter, coffee drinker (or wine drinker) - me. Welcome!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be Grateful

    Be Grateful

    Being in the habit of finding the good, those small things that in day to day life, we are grateful for, makes it easier to find the good when things are difficult. Just like in a garden, the things you pay attention to, grow. Do you want weeds or flowers growing in your garden. What kind of thoughts should you be focused on?

    Dream Big!

    Dream Big!

    Everyone has dreams. You may have multiple dreams or just one big one. It doesn’t really matter - 1 dream or 5, it is just not going to happen unless you follow that dream. And you can’t follow that dream without actually putting in some work. A dream will not just suddenly happen. Most overnight success stories - are actually years in the making. So what are you doing to make it happen? What work are you doing? How much time are you putting in to make that dream come alive? Let’s just be honest. It is NOT going to happen unless you make it happen. Living an exceptional life means that your dreams are coming true but do you really think those dreams are going to be handed to you on a silver platter?  They’re not. Get your butt in gear. Do the work. Make it happen!

    Choose Joy

    Choose Joy

    It’s pretty easy to find joy in the big things. A new job, a promotion, a new house, getting married, an addition to the family, a graduation, a retirement - all joyful things. It is finding joy in the small or even difficult things that takes more work. It’s not always easy and sometimes downright hard. Being in the habit of finding joy - always… means that you are better able to find joy both during the good times and the bad times.

    Be Present

    Be Present

    Be present! You never know when it may be “a last time.” You’re going to miss it - whatever it is - someday. You are making memories - what kind of memories do you want to have AND do you want to be in those memories? You will find joy! You will not regret it - ever!!!!!!!!!!!

    Be Mindful

    Be Mindful

    If you want a shot at that exceptional life...pay attention to yourself. Do what you need to do to feel balanced. Make a toolkit (strategies) that helps you respond to stress rather than react. Everyone has stress. I have just as many stressful things happen in my life as you. It is not who has more stress, it is simply who responds better. And those responses to stress take practice. Make it a daily practice.
