How To Give Thanks For This Moment

Every morning my husband and I go out for our daily walk/run (he walks, I run).  Although we take the same route each morning,  we see something different in nature each day for which we give thanks and tribute .

He’ll pause to take a picture of the swans and their new baby signets or a beautiful sunrise over the mighty Mumford River.  This morning, he was awed by the sight of a falcon sitting on the power lines.  That called for another great photo.  For me, the flowers and trees seem to put on a different show each morning.

Take Time For Yourself

I recently led a retreat presentation for women.  It was clear that the women were ready,  and needed to take that time out for themselves.  Most of the attendees have demanding jobs as well as mom, wife and household duties.

I shared with them the importance of taking time out for themselves. It was good for them to be still and take those moments in retreat for themselves. Read more on Take Time For Yourself…

Find Joy And Happiness In Nature

In my little part of the world, nature is busting out all over.  Tiny Daffodils are peering through soon to be lush lawns. Trees are showing off more and more softly colored green buds with each passing day.  Nature is so beautiful!

My husband and I delight in finding new things to see, do and enjoy in nature. Nature brings great joy and happiness to my life.  I can easily take that joy and happiness and pass it along to others.

Why Worry…Is It Really Important? (Part 1)

What’s really important?  I mean REALLY important.  Have you lost perspective of what’s really important in your life and find yourself worrying about just about every little thing?

I know people who worry all the time. They even worry about having nothing to worry about.  When they are not worrying, they feel there must be something they’re neglecting about which they need to worry.   They then begin to worry that whatever that something might be is not receiving the benefit of their worry.

Sounds overwhelming and confusing, doesn’t it?  Imagine what it must be like for the worrier.  There is hardly ever a moment of peacefulness and contentment.

One Simple Step Toward Financial Success

Lately I’ve been giving serious thought and careful reflection on why most of my business ventures don’t always turn out the way I’d like.

An example of one important facet not turning out as I’d like or had planned is the expected financial gain.  My realized financials simply do not always align with my desired and projected financials.  While I spend a great deal of time on what I consider to be solid profit making plans, somehow it just does not work out that way.

It’s All About Balance

Hard work is important to success and financial prosperity, so is balance.  But, If you’re like me, balancing life and work can be challenging at times.

Many times I find myself working here at my computer much longer than I had planned.  I get lost in all my projects that seem to be calling out to me.  Each one is calling for a piece of my time at the same time.

Four Tips For A Positive Attitude

This week my husband and I prepared our taxes.  I don’t use the word “hate” much, but I can shout from the roof top that I “hate” preparing our taxes.

Actually, I did not get too involved in the process.  My husband is the brave soul who painstakingly prepares our taxes.  Thank goodness, he does as much as he can without my input.

Letting Go …

How often have you heard someone say they can’t do such and such because of something that occurred in their past?  I hear it many times.  Over and over, people let their past dictate their present realities.  They get stuck in past emotions and events. They refuse to let go.
