Awaken Your Day - Sept 19 - Inner Peace

"When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere."
- Francois de La Rouchefouchaud, 1613-1680

As my weekend approaches, and I get excited about having time to do all I want to do - I become one of those people whose excitement slowly makes the transition to frayed end of a rope as I create a larger and larger list.

I begin in the home office and I figure..."Hmmm.... I need a clean slate. I need this room nice and tidy and organized in order to begin my productivity run. " So ... it is confirmed... papers are moved, keys are turned, buttons are pushed, recycle bag is open, and voila I have a clean desk and a sense that I have conquered my dragon in the first battle of the day.

My head is high, my chest is out and the wind is blowing new short hair like a Romance book cover. I am, I said. But I do not feel the wind, for I am too busy trying to recall what is next.

Next .... well... not sure... because my To Do list is in the pile of papers, now in the bin, neatly placed under the desk, mentally filed under "Will get to sort that out sometime later."

And it begins again.

So...tranquility is my friend.

I will stop. I will breathe. And I will refocus on knowing I have a few things that mean alot to me and I will remind myself that I may not get everything done that just "needs" to be done. My mind is calmly on the task I choose once I have slowly thought about what is most valuable to me to do. One thing at a time. Not a race from one room to the next or one file to the next.

I owe it to me, my wife, and my desired results to approach with care those ideas I have to complete in my business, our home and my dream chasing.

A clean desk is a nice beginning, as long as I do not cover it with a hectic array of activity.
All that I do takes me to my next step on this enjoyable stroll thru my yard of "Want to do..."

And I begin, with taking in a Good Morning.

Awaken Your Day - Sept 17 - Power Source

Where does your strength come from?

For some, an easy question. For some a standard answer. For many more, a cause to ponder our emotional make up, visit a kaleidoscope of memories and present day images.

We share it often. You are unique, you are unlimited, and inside no matter where you may hide it, you are strong.

How did we get to this point? How did we get here, to be whom we know we are today?
To be happy within our skin, with whom we are today.

Visit the journey. Enjoy the ride. And acknowledge the results.

What is your Personal Power and where does it come from?
Finally - Celebrate it.

That should make the morning go a little more quickly.

Have a great day.

Awaken Your Day - Sept 16- Laughter

When in doubt, go for a giggle.

In these times of despair and government dominating the news, everyone needs a moment of humor to just relax our environment that surrounds us thru the day. We send best wishes to those faced with adversity and hope for strong leadership in matters of politics. And for ourselves, a few moments away from it all when at times it gets too heavy.

Do what you can to relax today, and if that does not work, come back and read some archives and listen to some music.

Or remember a funny one liner from a time when laughter was easier to come by.

Good morning.

"I told the doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those two places."

"My Grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle."
- Henny Youngman

"No one party can fool all of the people all of the time; that's why we have two parties."

"People who throw kisses are hopelessly lazy."
- Bob Hope

"I'd rather be a failure at something I love, than a success at something I hate."

"Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city."

"I look to the future because that is where I am going to spend the rest of my life."

Awaken Your Day - Sept 15 - New or Used?

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

New or Used? You have that option.

You can pick up a used Monday anywhere really. Many people talk about them. Quite often. You can pick up an old Negative Monday just about anywhere. Most people are practically giving them away. Just listen close ... like someone put an old CD on repeat.

Used stories. Used attitude. Used potential that never was.

Or ... you pick up a new one with the excitement of a child receiving a brand new set of building blocks.

New Monday...building block... or Used Monday.

You can find easy enuf, I am making a new trail.
Good Morning.
