Daily Cheer For ALL To Hear

Happy Monday, my friends! I’ve been allowing myself to be super distracted lately, and the result is that I’ve missed this website a great deal! Here’s a taste of a new thing I’m launching over on my YouTube Channel ( /marilynhortondotcom ) entitled #DailyCheer. It’s going to be a daily dose of encouragement and support to jump start your day (and MY day!) so jump on over there, please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already, and enjoy daily OR save them up for a lousy day when you need some extra pep in your step.

Until next time, my friends…
Make it a great day,
(YOUR #OptimismGuru)

Weekly Wrap-Up: May 21, 2016

Holy Moly! One month left of Spring, and then Summer begins full-force! Watch out, world, it’s going to be a warm one!


I’ve been on a real Annie Lennox kick this week! A.L., the Eurythmics, stations centered around one of both of them. That’s my jam this week!


This week, my teenagers were introduced to Will & Jaden Smith’s The Pursuit of Happyness. I enjoy this movie for so many reasons. 1) It’s uplifting. 2) I have yet to watch a Will Smith movie that he didn’t act well in, and I therefore think he’s a great actor. 3) From a business standpoint, this true story shows real hustle. 4) Just when I think life is rough, I can always be reminded by this movie that having a roof over my head and clean clothes to wear is a blessing I should never take for granted.


“Nurture your mind with great thoughts; to believe in the heroic makes heroes.” (Benjamin Disraeli)


I am most proud of this one: https://youtu.be/bZonuFKUJ9o

As always, I appreciate you enjoying and sharing the content I put together here. Until next time…

Make it a great day,


Carving Out Missing Calf Muscles!

Getting Younger EVERY Day!!! (DAY 2)

I don’t blame aging for this issue…just my laziness that I associate with my busyness of being older with more responsibilities. But for Post #2 of #gettingyoungereveryday, I focus on my calves…or lack thereof.

My calves were once chiseled from running, ballet, high-heel wearing, and generally walking around more than I do now. Now, I stand in my flat comfort shoes so my aging joints don’t ache at the end of the day. Now, I sit in my comfortable office chair while I stare at tiny details on my computer screen. Now, I go from point A to point B with little effort. Now, I miss my calves!

So, I vow today to regain some definition in the nether region of my legs. I vow to catch myself just standing around, and right then and there, I vow to do standing calf raises until they start to cramp in their weakness. My new motto is: “Calves Until You Cramp!”

On the 31st Day of New Years & Video Extras

On the 31st and final day of my silly little “31 Days of New Year’s” video vlog, more than anything I am extremely grateful. I’m grateful for my family who lives this awesome life closest to me, to my friends who cheer me on and cheer me up when I need it most, and to all of the people I only know through online blogs and video channels and tweets (oh my!) for showing me that my kooky little world is bigger than I thought it was. Thank YOU!

Make it a great day,
