Don’t Wait…


So will you ride it out…the “storm” that sometimes comes along when people don’t like your ideas? Will you step out to claim them or will you let criticism stop you; will you let it be drowned by “you can’t do that” or “it will never work”

I read somewhere that an idea goes through three phases:

You can’t do that- it’s impossible

Maybe it can work but on a very limited basis

I knew it was a great idea all along

Don’t wait for phase three- follow your heart now!

They Matter…


35920035

Yes they matter- the things that we do well, but somehow, many times, we tend to downplay what we do- and play up the accomplishments of others.

Now there’s nothing wrong with admiring a job well done by another. It’s great to give them a compliment and mean it.

But how often do we say something like “Oh, it’s no big deal,” when someone compliments us on a job well done? And then how often do we then walk away feeling bad about ourselves, while the person who just gave us the compliment walks away perplexed?

But what if, when that person said “Job well done” we said something like “thank you” and then smiled? Think about the way that would feel. That feels a heck of a lot better than just walking away- doesn’t it?

So why no try it next time- because you do things well- and it matters.

Are You Practicing It…


 

Are you practicing it…gratitude? Do you make it a point to give thanks for all the good in your life? Do you get up in the morning and as your feet hit the ground say “thank you” for being here- another day on this glorious earth? Or do you get up, throw the covers off and then utter and expletive and literally “curse” the day? You hate your boss, your house, your spouse- and the kids are driving you nuts and it’s only 7am!

Go talk to someone who has no job and is struggling to find one. Or talk to that homeless man living by the dumpsters about how you don’t like your house anymore. Or the elderly gentleman who just lost his wife of sixty years- they went everywhere together. Or the young mother who buried her child- pediatric cancer and only five years old.

After you do that, do you still want to curse the day and be angry with your boss or your spouse? Will you still be angry at your kids that they’re making so much noise?

I don’t think so- do you?

Don’t Get Stuck…


You know, sometimes we get stuck in a rut. We get comfortable doing the same things over and over again. An that’s okay, as long as we’re getting the results we want to get.

But if we’re not, then maybe it’s time to change the way we do things. Take a good hard look and decide where we need to change and how we’re going to do it.

Sure, it’s not always easy. It’s certainly not always comfortable. But is it worth it? Yes. And so are you.

Isn’t It Time…


35920022Isn’t it time…to make amends? Isn’t it time to reach out to that person that you have been thinking about & wondering how they are?

Do you even remember what your disagreement was about? Probably not but so much time has passed and the holidays are coming up. Maybe that seat at your table doesn’t have to be empty this year. Maybe you can move past it, but on of you has to take the first step.

Why not you?

Keep It Open…


You never know how wonderful things might happen unless you keep an open mind. Incidents that at first may seem dire to you may just be what you need to open the door to a new adventure
So before you judge it, before you toss it out as something you cannot or will not do just stop and think and let the idea “set” awhile…you may just change your mind and be genuinely happy about it.
