Self Care

There are times to say "I need help" or "I can help"
There's also times we need to be alone or with others
It's all dependent on circumstance and abilities  - No one is an island or is stranded on one. You are not on Gilligan's Isle!!

Let's care for ourselves our time, our privacy and our desires in a healthy way

No matter what you're going through, there's a light at the end of the tunnel and it may seem hard to get to it but you can do it and just keep working towards it and you'll find the positive side of things

Music Makers

"We are the music makers, we are the dreamers of dreams"
I really like this quote by O'Shaughnessy used by Willy Wonka too
As I start to write my autobiography I realize how much I've live my dreams and took my own path to get to where I'm going. Sure others have been down roads like mine paving the way but it's MY journey

"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it"

Create your own dream and enjoy that music along the way

Together Everyone Accomplishes More

I heard that used T.E.A.M. used in a workshop recently and thought "I can apply that to me and my life along with work."  You can too.  

Recently I was invited to write a book about my life and I spent one entire day writing. I missed out on seeing other people, being around folks, etc.  When so much of my life is about others that seems odd.

I can't write my story without including how I interacted with others- a TEAM of friends, co workers etc.

Let's all apply Together Everyone Accomplishes More in our daily affairs,

Forests and Trees

Recall the idiom "I can't see the forest for the trees?"  I do and it helps me to stay focused on the overall or "big picture."  If I can't see a huge forest or even a small one it's often due to being caught up in small details.  Sure details are important so is the overall situation/problem or life event.

I try to see them both, the forest and each tree in perspective.
There is news, both good and not so good all around me.

Audition for Life

No Need to Audition: When we pretend to be someone we are not, we set ourselves up to be in an “audition” mode. We are always trying to be what we think others want us to be. We can sacrifice everything to give people what we think they want, when in reality, we have zero control over what people think. When we scale back and simply focus on the genuineness of who we are, there is no need to audition.

Be unapologetically YOU

“Stop living within the confines of how others define you! You weren't created to live their life; you were created to live yours - so LIVE it! You can reignite that fire within and bring the passion back into your goals, dreams, ambitions, careers, and relationships by reclaiming control of your own life. Be unapologetically YOU!”
