“I give myself permission
to be powerful.”
~ Positive Affirmation
If you truly gave yourself permission to be powerful, to have the courage and self-esteem to ask for what you really want in life, what would you do?
“The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you’ll go.”
~ Dr. Seuss
Reading expands your mind.
It can expose you to events, facts, and fantasies around the world and beyond.
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to find a good book and make time to READ!
Bonus points if you do it the old fashion way by reading an actual hard copy book, not electronic.
“No one but you knows how hard you work,
how many hours you put in behind the scenes,
so rely on YOURSELF for approval,
not the outside world.”
What recognition are you looking for?
How are YOU going to celebrate your hard work today?
May we think of freedom,
not as the right to do as we please,
but as the opportunity
to do what is right.”
~ Peter Marshall
Happy 4th of July!
May we rejoice in the freedoms we have, remember the people who sacrificed to allow us these freedoms, and make wise choices with our freedom.
You have CHOICES in life.
Are you making the right ones?
“A father is
neither an anchor to hold us back
nor a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.”
Happy Father’s Day to all the men who have loved, guided, supported, and nurtured children to find their own path in life.
Happy Father’s Day!
“You have brains in your head,
you have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in
any direction you choose.”
~ Dr. Seuss
CONGRATULATIONS to all the elementary, middle school, high school, and college graduates!
In what direction are you choosing to steer yourself?
“Once a year,
you’ve never been before.”
~ Dalai Lama
Whether it is a new country or state, city or neighborhood, restaurant or concert, go someplace this year where you have never been before.
Where will you go?
are not the ones who have never struggled.
They are the ones that never give up,
despite the struggles.”
~ Sharon Jaynes
Being a mother (or father) comes with both its ups and downs. It’s the balance between both being kind and loving as well as firm and guiding. As our children develop and mature, the challenges and opportunities that come with parenting change. No longer does the little child want kisses on their boo-boos or help getting dressed, but may now express their embarrassment by being hugged in public or argue with you over what they think is in style to dress.
Sending love to those special mothers (and step-mothers) this Mother’s Day. May you continue to love, guide, and nurture your children no matter what age or what challenges there may be to overcome.
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming…
‘WOW! What a ride!'”
Are you living life safely, risk free? Is it a life you ENJOY?
I encourage you to try new things, go new places, taste different foods, try a different language, and … GET OUT of your comfort zone.
What are YOU going to do this year to bring excitement into your life? Make it HAPPEN!
