Patience Makes Perfect!

motivation Jan 26, 2017

Sometimes patience is worth it!!!

We moved into our house in March 2013. I wanted urns for our front porch. I looked for awhile but couldn't find anything that a) I liked and b) was sturdy enough it wouldn't blow over if we had a strong windstorm. 

Last Christmas my husband found these. But they've sat empty for a year. 

And then last month Wegman's had their grand opening. I knew it the minute I saw them!!!! Little blue spruce trees! Just like the one my dad planted in our front yard of our house. 

They fit perfectly and they also were perfect for some outside Christmas lights. (We're not big on outside decorations!)

I love it when a dream becomes a reality. The front porch that I envisioned is finally here!!! And it makes me smile every time I look at it! #adreamcometrue#myperfecturns

Fight for What is Right!

educational motivation Jan 26, 2017

FREE DRINK!!!! Sometimes you just gotta fight for what's right!

I ordered a specific coffee. It wasn't complicated. I ordered it as a Grande. I got a Venti. She said she wouldn't charge me which was the right thing to do. 

I then tasted it and discovered it was not what I ordered. She said she'd remake it but she would have to charge me extra for the drink I was supposed to get. WRONG!!!

When you make a mistake, make it right. Don't screw up, inconvenience the customer and then charge them extra even if it's the true cost of what they purchased. I've NEVER been charged for their mistake at Starbucks!!!

I asked if there was a manager I could talk to. She said she can call him. In the meantime, the barista made me the drink I should have gotten. 

Good thing the manager attended the "customer is always right" school. If not, there would have been an adult shit fit right in the Vegas airport. And I might have even gone Live here on Facebook. #thepowerofsocialmedia ...

How Will You Choose to Remember 2016?

motivation Jan 26, 2017

Here we are... Another year has passed... What have you done with it? What progress have you made? What highlights stand out?

Being a glass is 3/4 full type person, I like to think about all of the GOOD from the year as its final curtain is drawn. It's kind of like the play of your life. Another chapter that is finished, another act that complete, another set of memories to bank.

I know some people have had a tough year. I get that! But I also know that you have the power to look at all of the positives of the last 366 days and have them lift you up or you can look at the negatives and have them drag you down.

How will you choose to look back on 2016? You have the power to put a positive spin on it. Try to do that and see how it feels! I bet it will be AMAZING!!!

I read a message yesterday from one of the leaders I look up to at Beachbody. His name is Jeff Hill and here are some snippets of his note:

"I am ending the year older, more grey hair, more wrinkles or "fine lines" as I like to...

Is Your Water Dirty of Clear?

educational motivation Jan 26, 2017

"You're mind is like an empty glass; it'll hold anything you put into it. You put in sensational news, salacious headlines, talk-show rants, and you're pouring dirty water into your glass. 

If you've got dark, dismal, worrisome water in your glass, everything you create will be filtered through that muddy mess because that's what you'll be thinking about. Garbage in, garbage out. All that drive-time radio yak about murders, conspiracy, deaths, economy, and political battles drives your thinking process, which drives your expectations, which drives your creative output.

That IS bad news. But just like a dirty glass, if you flush it with clean, clear water under the faucet long enough, eventually you'll end up with a glass of pure, clear water.

What is that clear water?

Positive, inspirational, and supportive input and ideas. Stories of aspiration, people who, despite challenges, are overcoming obstacles and achieving great things. Strategies of success, prosperity, health, love, and...

Will & Grace and the Law of Attraction

motivation Jan 25, 2017

The Law of Attraction at work once again!!! It is just CRAZY when this happens...

Last week I ran across an episode of Will & Grace. Mind you, I have not watched one single episode of this show since I've been with my husband (10 years).

So when I stumbled upon it as I was channel surfing (which I NEVER do!), I said to my husband, "Have you ever seen this show?" He had not. WHAT?!!!!

Of course I made him watch it and told him it was one of my favorite all time shows....

THEN... the universe called THE NEXT DAY and told me the show IS COMING BACK!!!! OMGGGEEEEEE! Will & Grace AND Karen & Jack!!!!

I CAN NOT WAIT!!!! #weekmade https://youtu.be/wDe934lJlqY

Any other Will & Grace fans out there? Who's your favorite character?

Live Life! Face Your Fears!

motivation Jan 25, 2017

I suggest you try this... Don't let fear of change stop you from living life with passion. It might be scary to do something different, but the fear doesn't compare to what's waiting for you on the other side.

And honestly, I've never known anyone to die from making a change. It's the opposite.... You will start living better than before!!!

Live Your Truth!

laughter motivation Nov 26, 2016

I was NOT a fan of Miley Cyrus but I'm an avid watcher of The Voice and she is one of the judges this season. So I've been forced to watch and listen to her for a few weeks now. My opinion of her has done a 180. I am now a huge Miley fan!

What I love about her is her uniqueness and her strength of character which shines through on the show. She is truly someone who is wise beyond her years.

It is clear that she adores the singers on her team and is mentoring them to be successful long after the show is over. And I believe, more than the other coaches, she will help them further their careers.

I was sad for her this week when two people from her team were on the bottom and had a sing off to see which one would be saved.  I thought they both gave 2 of the best performances of the week.

But the words she said to them before the final votes were tallied really resonated with me... Great job Miley!!! #wisewords #liveyourtruth

Want Quality? Don't Multitask

educational motivation Oct 06, 2016

I used to take pride in being the ultimate multitasker. Then I discovered it's not a good thing...

"When you try to do two things at once, you either can't or won't do either well. If you think mutlitasking is an effective way to get more done, you've got it backward. It's an effective way to get less done."

It comes down to focus and you can't truly focus 100% on more than one thing at a time. It's similar to being present. Be present with one thing and you will do it well & with quality.

Make it a non-multitasking Monday!!! <3<3<3

Grandma Strong

aging health motivation Aug 20, 2016

I have an experience I want to share with you. Last night I had a strong feeling come over me. One that has been a long time coming but I think it's here to stay. I have a secret to share and maybe for some of you, it will resonate. For my whole life I haven't felt good about my body. I never felt like It was good enough. I honestly didn't like it when people touched my body because I felt fat. I felt mushy. And I didn't want them feeling my fat.

I'm sure it stems from the fact that I was an overweight teenager, and when I was 13 years old I lost 30 pounds. I think I've always seen myself as fat, even though I'm not.

But until I found Beachbody and started doing their at-home workout programs, I was never really in good shape. I was I guess what you call "skinny fat." I looked pretty good with clothes on, but I was still mushy and I didn't feel good about myself because I wasn't doing the right things to get myself in the proper shape.

I worked out but not consistently. I thought...
