Being Better All Begins with Awareness

"Judgment comes from a place of fear, disdain, or even hate." by Rachel Hollis from "Girl Wash Your Face"

No judgement here if you are "judgy." This comes from my  and a place of love because I want to be a force that makes a difference. I want to inspire positive change.

Part of the reason is because I used to be the most judgmental person so I understand. And I know change is possible no matter who you are or how old you are.

I'm a work in progress trying to get better every day. If you ever see my judgy side come out, call me on it please!!!

Here are a few tips from Rachel:

1. "Find nonjudgmental friends. We tend to become whoever we surround ourselves with. If your friends are full of gossip & vitriol, I promise you'll start to develop the habit. When you are looking for a community of women, look for ones who want to build each other up instead of year each other down." (or talk shit about others - those are my words! Rachel didn't cuss. )

2. Police yourself. "If...

This is the First Official Professional Interview I've ever done!

educational motivation Feb 20, 2018

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!!!

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 ...

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...

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

Some Accidents Are No Accidents

educational motivation Aug 07, 2016

I like to listen to books & videos on YouTube & Audible when I drive. Listening to motivational speakers and self help gurus puts my mind in a positive & thoughtful place. It's so much better than listening to the news or mindless talk radio. I listened to this great message by Rick Warren, author of a Purpose-Driven Life. One thing he said really resonated with me. It was very personal - so much so, I went live on Facebook and shared it. #‎mytruth

Watch his video first, then mine that follows below.

The Things You Never Expect to Learn from a Doctor

aging educational health May 24, 2016

Right as I was finishing my first week of my 3rd time doing P90x3, I had a bit of a setback.... Too many one-armed planks and side arm balance moves for this grandma!!! And it was totally my fault for doing the workout when my shoulder was already sore. And then continuing when it was bothering me during the workout. Big lesson learned!!! The pain came on bad in the middle of the night Saturday and the following day became so excruciating that I ended up taking some old pain medicine my husband had. I hoped it would get me through the night and tide me over until my doctor's office opened at 8am on Monday. I lasted until 5am.... Not only was my pain horrible, but the medicine had made me so sick, I threw up. So my husband drove me to the ER.

I was so happy to get help... You know that desperate feeling where you'd let them do anything!!! Me, needle-hater extraordinaire, was thrilled to get a shot in the butt for the pain! Our visit was quick & easy - we got out of the ER in a...
