Do you feel better yet? How many windows, drawers and baseboards do you think you'd need to scrub before you feel like you've accomplished enough and are satisfied? If you shook out all the blankets and hung them outside in the fresh air, emptied every kitchen cabinet, wiped down the shelves, and organized under your bathroom sinks, would you call it a day and your house spring cleaned? Why do we "spring clean" anyway? Why not "winter clean" when we have more time stuck indoo
What do you see when you look at this picture?
Do you see rough, dirty, boring, ordinary and even broken rocks? "Nothing special here folks. Keep on walking. Nothing to see." They've lived in a driveway, the same old lonely place, for quite a long time.
They've been walked on, run over, cast aside and overlooked more times then they'd care to admit. They've been ignored, treated as worthless, thrown in anger and they have the scars to prove it. Oh...wait a minute. Are we st
Let's just be brutally honest for a minute, ok?
Why is it that we don't smell our own body odor or bad breath? See our own mess on our floors? Why don't we pick up our clutter but instead just step over it? Why can trash pour out and over a bathroom bin and an entire household of people will just keep piling on top instead of taking it out?
And yet, if we go by another person who is, let's say, in need of some "refreshing" we notice the odor right away! We enter a publi
You’ve heard this before.
Every action creates a reaction. Sometimes we call it the ripple effect.
And sometimes? We need to hear things again.
And again, and again.
Every choice you make, every direction you move in, creates a ripple.
Sometimes in a good direction and sometimes not.
One of the easiest ways to visualize this truth is by watching a small pebble be dropped into a body of water. It’s just a small pebble, being dropped in one place. But it has a huge ripp
Let's face it. We're all busy. We only have so many hours in a day and no one gets any extra! It doesn't matter if you have 10 kids or none, work from home or out of the house, are single or married. We all get 24 hours-to work, sleep, eat and play! So...how do some people seem to accomplish so much? And some? So very little. Join me for 5 minutes in my bathroom, and I'll share one of my secrets to making the most of every day and going to bed at night satisfied with that day
No rush and no pressure, but when you are ready.
Ask yourself this question: "What is holding me back?" Ask yourself when you are alone. When you are ready to be honest with your answer. Ask yourself when you have finally gotten to that point where you are almost shouting in your own head, "ENOUGH! Enough is enough! I am ready to do this!" Whatever your "this" is? Doesn't matter. It matters to you! But it doesn't matter if your "this" is different than my "this".
We all hav
When most people come to a dead end, with a cross road, and are faced with the choice of turning left or right, they make a choice. Even if they hesitate momentarily, they can clearly see that standing still and going straight are not options. They might evaluate, try to see (or even guess!) whether turning left or right is the better choice. But eventually turn they will. Coming to this cross road might make them uncomfortable. For some? Being faced with that choice? Might
And tomorrow, and the next day, and the next. So long as we have breath! But the trick is to focus on them-as they come, one at a time!
And the even harder part? Is letting go of yesterday. We have a tendency to beat ourselves up for what we didn't accomplish yesterday and allowing that to stop us for moving forward today! Forget yesterday!!!! So what if you didn't finish your to-do list? Who cares if you didn't make those follow up calls? No big deal if your house was left
