I believe in…

Manicures.

I believe in overdressing.

I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick.

I believe in pink.

I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls.

I believe in tomorrow is another day, and…

I believe in miracles.

A shock is sometimes good for us?

You betcha…and the only reason it is a shock, is because we weren’t ready for it.
When we are shocked by a situation, event or even a cold shower, it’s just because we are taken by surprise and have a hard time getting our heads, or our body around what just happened.

And getting shocked simply elevates our internal structures and functions to rise to the occasion.
It’s the “fight or flight” reaction of our body – where our autonomic nervous system shifts to meet the demand – the sympathetic nervous system takes over and the parasympathetic nervous system cools down – all to better help us deal with what we didn’t see coming.

So our body rises to the occasion, and so can we, and sometimes a little shock is what we all need to get us out of “idle”.

You can never do something nice…

…and not have affect you, positively.

So if you want to feel a little better, just change doing something nice for “yourself “into doing something nice for “someone else”.

You’ll feel better and so will the “someone else”…you get a 2-fer…Sweet.

Free really does Cost…

With concern to the “things” in our lives.

The fact is, people make things, and usually not for free, at least in the long run…so someone eventually has to pay.

But our lives are Free and so are our Choices.

Maybe it would be a good idea to cut some costs and throw out some of our wants for certain “things”, and then we can be free to enjoy the stuff that really matters most.

Pam Worthy…

Got along with folks like candy to a baby.

People loved her. She had an inspiring personality and  a “can do” attitude, which left nothing but fulfillment and hope wherever she went.

There was not much difference with Pam than with most others, with the exception that she understood that all people “matter” and should be treated royally.

So she made it a point to keep her thoughts positively aligned with her desired outcome to “bring up” everyone she made contact with.

It is also no surprise that Pam’s life was fulfilling and abundant, and all the people she helped out, not only returned the favor, but they started to help out others…from her inspiration.

Baby Steps…

In coaching, I have seen individuals, teams and departments take it to the “Next Level” when they work out a solid game plan and don’t rush the process.

Regretfully, I have also seen disappointment when they attempt to rush it as well.

Like when you were a kid and cut your fingernails too short…you have pain which you will get over, but the one thing that stays, is the pain of taking on (or off, in this case) too much at once, which you then carry forward as a negative feeling towards the process.

Take your time… work the plan and the plan will work.
