Special Mother’s Day Tribute from My Son

We all have some kind of tale to tell about a Mother in our life.  Be it a neighbor, sister, aunt, grandmother, mother, mother-in-law… you get the idea!  But a sweet phone call from my son this morning, reminded of a beautiful gift I had received a few years ago.

For some reason I cannot recall, I was not really looking forward to Mother’s Day this particular year.  That all changed when I got up at 3:30 in the morning on Mother’s Day 2009,  and found this note in my in-box.

This is the greatest gift a Mother can have – A Child’s […]

Positive Affirmation Examples

It’s been requested that I provide a few examples of what positive affirmations may look like.  Here are a couple of examples for you to view.  Please note that you will want to personalize your affirmations to who you are and who you want to become.

By the way, you do not have to put your affirmations to music, but it doesn’t hurt. What you do need to do, is repeat the positive affirmation over and over and over again.

Today’s lesson was from a Bear we have nick-named Rolanda (because she loves to roll on the snow and grass).

Rolanda would dig and dig and dig for a few roots and a rodent or two.  But in the midst of working her claws to the bone for a meager living (sound familiar?), she always found time to play.  Her favorite […]

KICKING DEPRESSION’S BUTT – Part 7

Have a personal Motto!

traffic

As I travel with my work, I often ask my audiences, “Who has a company mission statement?”  Most raise their hand.  Then I ask, “How many have a family mission statement?”  If I’m lucky I’ll get a handful of people who have one.  Then finally I ask, “How many have a personal mission statement?”  Usually there is only one or two if any at all.  So here is the real question.  How are you going to get where you want to go if you don’t know […]

Fabulous Fridays

Why are Fridays always so fabulous?

quick

Could it be because the work week is over?

I think that may be a small part of it…  We all know we still work on the weekend… we get the yard done, clean the house, get caught up on laundry, etc… so what is it?

I think it’s two things, at least it is for me.

1) You get to spend more time with loved ones!

2) You have a chance for change.   You are doing something different than the day in and day out routine we […]
