IF YOU WERE FIRED TOMORROW, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? If your boss called you into his or her office tomorrow morning and told you they had to let you go, how would you respond? ▶️ Would you cry? ▶️ Would you scream? ▶️ Would you be calm? ▶️ Would you think about all the bills you have to pay or would you think about all the other jobs you could get? ▶️ Would you think about how other people would judge you or would you think about how it would make you stronger? We get comfortable
WHY YOU? .... NO --- WHY THEM! Now I hate to compare myself with other people since I don't like to practice anything that even remotely looks like codependency....BUT... Haha. While I know to "relate" instead of "compare"... I often fall into the following trap: I look at my goals, and I get motivated. I get into action, and I'm inspired. Then slowly I start to see the work ahead of me, the tough road coming, and I get discouraged. Then I see all the other people trying to d
WHY ... DO KIDS ASK WHY? We all know that kids can ask a lot of questions. If you are a parent, you know this for a fact. haha. Lots and Lots of questions. What is their favorite question? ... my title is a bit obvious huh?... WHY! - Why is the sky blue? - Why does Red mean Stop? - Why do I have to go to bed? Hell, lots of times it is even stuff we don’t know the answer to. Don't we feel ridiculous when THAT happens. Haha. But what happens when we do know the answer??? BOOM..
As we come back to work after Labor Day, I'd like to remind you that: YOUR WORK/LIFE BALANCE ISN'T A PLAYGROUND SEESAW We hear people talk about the "Work/Life Balance" all of the time: - You need to take more time for your life. - I need to make more time for fun. - We work too hard. - You don't work hard enough. - All you want to do is play around. ----Or the ultimate mantra: "Work Hard / Play Hard". We express the balance of work vs. life as if they are in direct competiti
TODAY WE CELEBRATE THE LABORERS. Today we "honor the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country." While you are out enjoying this beautiful life today, take a moment to throw some love out there for the Laborers. The dedicated people of the occupations that built this country with muscle, intellect, hard work, brute force, discipline, precision, blood, sweat and overcoming of fears. Toda
WHO HAS POWER OVER YOU? You don't have to be watching HBO on Sundays to understand that our world struggles with POWER needs. It isn't just John Snow, Khalissi and the Lannisters that lives revolve around power. I understand that is fiction, but from the beginning of time, people have been obsessed with and oppressed by power. Ancient Rome, The crusades, Religious and ethnic genocides ...history is littered with injustice in the name of POWER. Whether it is our political syst
A CONFUSED PARROT. There are a ton of slogans, one-liners, and cliches that people love to share, especially in the world referred to as "self-help" or "recovery". Some share to help others, some share to prove their wisdom, some share just to hear themselves talk (#guilty)...haha. These statements help summarize an idea. They help make a certain "way of thinking" easy to reference for others. "Easy does it", "one day at a time", "work smarter not harder", "done is better tha
