Got a Glitch in Your Gratitude?

| Blog | No Comments

Isn’t it CRAZY how the little things cause glitches in our gratitude? Just think about the little things that trip you up and steal your joy during the day, my friend! (Now we go behind the scenes of making this video…) As I was preparing to make this video celebrating my book being on Amazon now,(YAYYY!) 🙂 EVERYTHING in the tech area went off the rails…and so did I…frustration…tears…pity party…meltdown.  THEN guess what happened? Years of my “I Get To!” mindset training kicked in and flipped me from pity to empowering perspective. (Thank you, Lord!) So I decided to be totally transparent and share that with you in the video because this is where the rubber meets the road in life, right? I hope my transparency serves you.  I’m once again proving that we ALL need constant reminders of what matters most – especially mwa, “The Attitude Expert”, the “I…

Mother’s Day is Hard

Mother’s Day can be wonderful – and also, sometimes hard – for a variety of reasons: Hurt, heartache, loss, grief, dysfunction, etc.  In this video I share 3 proven strategies that have helped so many people around the globe to make this day (and any day) so much better by choosing to 1) Make NO COMPARISONS  2) Have ZERO EXPECTATIONS  3) Do something for OTHER WOMEN who have made a difference in your life. From the very personal experience of my mom dying at the young age of 46, I needed to put these in place in order to even get through Mother’s Day! I hope it serves you as well. Thanks for leaving a comment, and sharing this – we never know who needs to hear it.  I know I would have loved to hear it many years ago. Oh, and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

I Get To have a Wonderful Life

Keeping the right perspective is particularly timely and powerful in the midst of the challenges some are facing currently – whether economically, in business, health or other life issues. Now more than ever, everyone needs encouragement and hope along with a gentle reminder of the power of our own perspective. Frank Capra’s classic movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” offers just that. The movie opens with various loved ones offering up prayers for George Bailey (portrayed by Jimmy Stewart) who is at a place of desperation in his life. We then see and hear the dialogue between stars in the heavens, representing angels talking to God. Joseph (the senior angel) and God are talking to Clarence (the apprentice angel) about George Bailey. God tells him “A man down on Earth needs our help.” Clarence says, “Splendid! Is he sick?” “No, worse-he’s discouraged,” Joseph replies. “At exactly 10:45 pm, that man will…

What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love

What a crisis we would be in if we succumbed to any ignorant thinking that we must agree with someone in order to maintain respect, love and honor.  Seriously – if you have a friend, family member or spouse (and been married more than 5 minutes), you know you can and will disagree, while still loving and respecting them. On one of my business trips last year, I had the opportunity to room with a precious young woman I’d met previously, but didn’t know well. She lives on the other side of the globe from me – from an entirely different background and culture.  I only knew she was a loving and devoted wife and mommy of 2 little ones.   We immediately hit it off like a couple of childhood friends reconnecting, sharing rich and deeply meaningful conversations.  We shared laughter and tears as we connected quickly in matters…
