Thank you everyone who have been supporting the blog and providing great feedback. Please do not forget to tell friends about the blog and leave me a message.
I have been really present and reflecting on the fact that this year is almost over. I almost feel like if you have not gotten in that trip you wanted to go on, finish that project you half completed or start that 2014 New Year's Resolution you might be somewhat behind. Instead of waiting for January 1st to reflect on the year and plant new seeds for the new year; why not start now? Why not make your goals count now? Stop waiting to live your goals in January and start living today.
Here is how I plan to start/continue living...
1. I want to go on more road trips
2. Balance my check book and save
3. Take my first cruise some where warm
4. Find more DIY projects to complete and share with friends
5. Bake a cake from scratch
6. Have friends over to celebrate a new season
7. Write thank you cards or just thinking about you note cards to friends and love ones
Morning loves! I hope everyone is having a great week I am looking forward to spending my weekend relaxing, refueling and renewing. I wanted to get your opinion on something again. Do you mind if your significant other talks on the phone with the opposite sex? I noticed that my man (who I blush over) has more female friends then male. It does not bother me that his contact list is filled with name after name of females. But I am curious who out there would have a problem with their significant other sharing conversation after work with the opposite sex.
I trust that my relationship is based on integrity and I know that we are both pretty independent people that see the value of building friendships with individuals. We both came to the table with our own set of friends and we continue to build a network of friends together. I do think that there has to be a mutual respect and boundaries. Is respect not enough? Do you require more?
I was talking with 2 women. One that is a mother, wife, and holds a leadership position at her job. The other woman who is a wife and holds a leadership position at her job. We were all having a casual conversation about the topic of work-life balance. This was a passionate discussion on what balance is and how to achieve it with the many hat we wear daily. I have always chased balance but the way it looked was like a dog chasing it's tail. Does balance really exist? Can you have it all and maintain your shit, zen, or equilibrium?
I am coming to peace with who I am in the world. I am learning what I will accept as my truth. I am learning to love the entire me. I am learning that it's not about wearing 50 different hats at the same time and being great at everything, at the same time. Balance is about completion. I want to live knowing that I am activity engaged with completing my purpose in life. Balance for me is knowing what is important. When I distinguish what is important and set forth finishing WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT I am left complete and whole. Balance is dictated by where you are in life. Distinguish what is MOST IMPORTANT to you. Set expectations and boundaries. In the conversation with these 2 women we have similar concerns with different perspectives.
What is balance to you?
See you again on Thursday! Remember to live. love. share.
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
I need your help in answering this questions. Can people change? Do you think after bad habits and mistakes, can people change? The question is not will you forgive or give a person a second chance; but can someone change their ways for the better?
We all make mistake. We all have gotten into some shit! We all wish we did not say or do something. Can we make a turn for the better? Can we change? Old habits are hard to break. I heard somewhere it takes 30 days to make something a new habit. So, if someone was a cheater, can they change? If someone is consistently late for appointments can they change?
I would like know from you what you think. Please share with me what you know to be the truth.
