Dealing with a mistake that was made this AM and this old tune by The Mamas & The Papas came to my mind...
“Monday Monday, can’t trust that day.
Monday, Monday sometimes it just turns out that way.
Oh Monday mornin’, Monday mornin’ you gave me no warning’ of what was to be...”
As a recovering perfectionist, it gave me a few palpitations, but in the larger scheme of things, it is but a minor hiccup and happens when you are running a business and there’s a lot going on.
I take full responsibility for it because as the head honcho in charge, it’s one I could have prevented by having a better process in place for my team.
So the way I look at mistakes now, even though they still give me angst, is that they are simply lessons that highlight where you and your team can improve things.
So if you caught my podcast episode this AM and heard the uncut version with the doorbell ringing and then me and my guest conversing about how to get...
Our sweet boy! Guess he likes the cool leather under his belly...
He’s spending less time confined in his “play yard” as he matures and becomes less destructive.
It is a joy watching him grow and learn. He has brought such a light to our lives and is a great distraction in this time of pandemic, riots and political unrest.
I believe the Universe nudged me with the desire to get a puppy back in early February because it knew things would be tough and I’m so glad I listened.
What is the Universe nudging you towards right now and are you listening?
Recording a 25 minute video 4 times is EXHAUSTING!!! I never knew I could get tired from talking too much!
Maybe if I had some to talk to instead of my own face!!!
Seriously I think my vocal chords are worn out. My throat is so sore!
Hoping I don’t have to do it again!!!
They love each other so much!!!
When I Face Time with my grandson, he asks for Moji. I think Moji is his favorite thing he looks forward to when he comes to Nannie’s house.
One of the things I wanted in my next dog was sweetness and friendliness and I hit a home run with this one.
He seems to know that he needs to be gentle with Harrison. He’ll puppy-bite the adults but he only licks H.
It’s so cute to watch. And I feel grateful we got a good one, on both counts!!!
Some may assume I created my own business because corporate life wasn’t lighting me up.
Although that is one big reason, I really left because the life I have now allows me to take time to do more of the other things I love, like sit outside on my porch and meditate while enjoying the sounds of my fountain.
There are a million reasons why I love my "job," but what really lights me up is helping other people find their version of "porch time." :)
What lights you up?
Remember back when you were a child and you had no worries, no complaints, and no thoughts of your limitations? When life was simply about noticing the beauty and abundance around you...
You CAN return to that...
It's all about choice and learning to train your brain to do that.
If you can learn this, you will see the amazing abundance all around you, just like my grandson felt yesterday in the field of sunflowers.
I'm so happy that I now have the ability to tap into that inner child that I had lost.
I see things all around me that I completely missed before I learned the brain training tools I now use every day.
You are never too old to learn new things and uncover the beauty in your life that has been there all along...
Don’t ever think you’re too old to step into a new career doing the work you are meant to do!!!
I remember my old cubicle life... desiring something different but not knowing where to begin. I didn’t want to go back to college and start from scratch, but I knew I wasn’t where I was supposed to be.
So I just started putting one foot in front of the other, taking action on what felt right.
And last August THIS was something that felt right. I knew it as soon as I heard about it. And I was able to get in on the ground floor of this new certification program.
So I jumped in with both feet!!! And what a ride it’s been!
I just graduated, after spending a semester learning the science and then a semester of practicum work, and I am now getting to do the work I know I’ve been put here to do.
It may have taken me 61 years to get here but better late than never, right?!?
I am officially a trained and certified Master NeuroCoach!!!! Hot damn!
Thank you to all...
Eleven years today I became Mrs. Wright... The time has flown! But it's been an amazing ride, and I'm so glad I get to do the rest with him!!!
He makes my every day more fun, and I feel more loved than ever.
I met him at 18 but didn't walk down the aisle with him until I was 50. I always knew he was Mr. (W)Right, but the universe had to make us wait until the time was right.
I love this picture of us on our wedding day with my 2 daughters, who were our bridesmaids, looking on... It was a special day as it was my husband's first marriage and his friends thought the day would never happen.
Amazing things can happen late in life, if you just listen and follow your gut, no matter how high that mountain may seem. It IS possible. The dream I had at the young age of 18, finally came true.
Happy Anniversary to us and Happy (almost) Birthday to America!
Have you ever had a great idea that you never implemented?
Well, I’ve had quite a few, but this one was one I finally pushed to the TOP of my priority list and made happen and I’m so FRIGGIN’ excited about it!
When it came in the mail two days ago, I actually jumped up & down and screeched! LOL!
I sat on this project for awhile, since last November! But it’s DONE and now it’s here - right before a new quarter! How perfect was that?!?! #thankyouuniverse
If you’re wondering what IT is, it’s my unique system that I created and use every single day.
I used it to first imagine and then create my passion-filled and purpose-driven online business and soon I’ll be giving one to each of my new students when they join The Second Half S.P.A.R.K. School when I open the doors to enrollment in a couple of weeks.
There are a lot of passions about to be uncovered & realized in the next 90 days and I can’t wait to lead my new...
Can you hear that? That’s the beautiful sound of the keys on my keyboard and my pencil on paper!!! (Because I use both! #oldschool)
Yes indeed! I'm creating a brand, new workshop which should be sweet music to the ears of those who are tired of settling for the life they don't want and are ready to uplevel!
My workshop is all about finding passion, purpose and profit AFTER the empty nest!!!
I can't wait to share my 5 secret steps that will help any passionless empty nesters discover her untapped gifts and use them to create an income-producing business so she can spend the rest of her life doing the work she is meant to do.
I see you and I'm here to give you a blueprint to getting sparked in your second half. The alternative should no longer be an option!
If this workshop perks your interest, the link to sign up can be found below. I kick it off on 7/6, coincidentally right after Independence Day!!!
