This is the first official, professional interview I've ever done, and man, was it fun!!!!
I even stopped to smell the roses!
I got to share what Marketing Impact Academy has done for me as an online entrepreneur over the past 12 months.
The last 3 days have been nothing short of incredible. Most of us were in tears as the conference closed because of the power of the message that Chalene Johnson shared with us...
"Things happen FOR us, not TO us."
And it is our responsibility - each of our's purpose - to help others figure out what we already have, through our experiences. That is how we can best serve.
And THAT is what I intend to devote myself to doing!!!
My house is officially back to its non-Christmas self!!! I finally got my Christmas village put away!
As I was packing it up, I got to thinking about my beautiful buffet table and how it's one of my favorite pieces of furniture. And how I almost lost it....
You see, after my divorce I had to have an estate sale and put almost everything I owned up for sale. I tried to sell this but no one would pay the dirt cheap price I was offering for it...
So I kept it!
And when I look at it, I always think: you were meant to be with me, to see me through bad times and good.
And I smile.
Isn't it funny how things have a way of working out?
I'm so thankful it's still here. If it wasn't, I don't know where I'd put my Christmas village!
You know I like to read because I'm always posting stuff that inspires me from my books. Well THIS is a good one!!!
It was actually an exploration of sorts... Read and then do an exercise. And it made me think...
I had to pick 1 reason out of 5 as to WHY I started coaching. My 5 choices were:
BEFORE I did the exercise, I thought my reason was Health... I mean, I lost almost 20 pounds and got in the best shape of my life at age 55!!!
But as I really began to think about WHY and remembered back to when I started, my Health is not why I started coaching.... It is why I signed up to be in a online challenge group but it is NOT why I began coaching.
I also tell people I started coaching because I got a great discount, but again, that is the reason I signed up to coach but it is not why I STARTED to coach. I had no intention of coaching when I signed up.
But a short 2 weeks after I signed up for the discount, a light bulb went off in my head!!!...
Anyone who has chronic pain needs to read this book... And I'm only on page 1!!!
"Pain and other chronic symptoms are physical manifestations of unresolved internal conflict. Symptoms surface as an instinctual mechanism for self survival.
They are messages from the inner self wanting to be heard, but ego takes center stage in heights the truth within the shadows of the unconscious mind: which is the body. One purpose of these physical symptoms is to keep the individual focused on his physical body, and away from the surfacing emotions.
This is referred to as Tension Myoneural syndrome, TMS, which includes acute and chronic nerve pain as well as muscular pain and a wide variety of other symptoms.
T = Tension, the result of anger buried in the body
M = Myoneural, muscles and nerves
S = Syndrome, a collection of symptoms
TMS is the cause of the current pandemic of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraine, hip pain, knee pain, wrist and hand pain, carpal tunnel pain, mouth...
“I know that the answer to “what should I be doing?“ is to see the word “yes” on my inner screen: “Yes, I am listening”; “Yes, I am paying attention”; and most important, “Yes, I am willing.”
I notice that those around me who feel uninspired are unwilling to say yes to the feeling at the core of their being.
By doing so to every hunch, burning desire, and thought that won’t go away, I feel the hand of a guiding spirit that’s with me simply because I’ve been willing to say yes.
By saying yes to life, I see the world and all of its inhabitants in a completely new way.”
2nd to last page in “Living An Inspired Life” by Wayne Dyer
“Ego insists on believing that we don’t have enough, others have more, there’s newer and better stuff, we won’t be liked unless we purchase that thing, we lack status, and some designer label will make us will make life better.
This is exact opposite of what your spirit gently whispers, which is: you are complete already, a product of universal abundance, so relax and enjoy life... what you desire will show up with less effort and no anxiety.
The first step in transcending the uninspiring messages that besiege us to buy more is to become aware of what’s going on and realize that we don’t really need anything else in order to be happy. After all, there’s no way to happiness - happiness is the way.
We may need to say this to ourselves over and over until it sinks in:
Nothing can make me happy. Happiness and inspiration or what I bring to life, not what I purchase.”

My whole life I was always the youngest...
I was the younger sister.
I started Kindergarten at 4 years old.
I graduated high school at 17.
I was the youngest of my roommates in college.
Now it seems like I'm always the oldest!
(except when I'm around my husband's friends! LOL!!!!)
But I never FEEL like I'm older!!! I always feel like I fit right in.
Maybe it's my mindset. Maybe it's because I work out and feel so strong & healthy. Maybe it's because I'm around people who accept me because we think so much alike
"Those who have the gift of inspiration exude something that’s difficult to pin down intellectually, yet is undeniably recognizable in how we feel in their presence: we can sense that they are aligned with the source energy from which we all originate.
We perceive a place within them that resonates deeply within ourselves-a vibrational recognition of inspiration-and they have much to offer us. We recognize their high spiritual energy, which longs to be active in our life. When we feel this resonance, it’s reflected in a feeling that’s similar to a warm, soothing shower that’s running deep within us.
Those who inspire consistently have an aura of joy that permeates their being and radiates outward, impacting those around them.
We can use this “joy index” as a non-scientific a measure of inspiration. When we meet others who we think might be living in spirit, we must ask the following questions:
Do they seem to have a...
