Audio Mindset Minute: “Give Anonymously”

Mindset

When we give while expecting something in return, that is not true giving. Giving from the heart, for the pure joy of helping someone or making them feel special...and not having them know who it is...that is a special kind of giving. Join me and let's give anonymously! Because Together is Better, … [Read more...]

Now, this rainstorm was unlike any petty … [Read more...]

Three Small Words

Three Small Words

The other day I found myself in a situation where I had inconvenienced a friend. It was not intentional, but nonetheless, I made her late to a family event. I apologized when I saw her. But after the fact, this situation kept resting on my shoulders. I felt really awful, as I had no idea I was the cause of her being held up. Two days later, I was still thinking about this. I sent her a text telling her how sorry I was and I asked her to forgive me. She immediately responded that she had forgiven me and all was well between us. She continued to tell me how thankful she was of my three words, "I am sorry". She said those words are not in many people's vocabulary these days, so my words really meant a lot to her. Her words to me really weighed heavy on my heart, as she was right: people do … [Read more...]

You Get More Flies With Honey…

Bees

I'm sure you have heard the expression, "You get more flies with honey than with vinegar". What this essentially means is that if you are sweet and kind, people will be attracted to you, and you will most likely get the response you want…and if you are sour, you will get the opposite response. Well, I'm here to tell you that this is the truth! In my life I have experienced many, many examples of this truth. I will now tell you about a situation that happened recently to prove this point. This past summer, our Casita was broken into. Between the damage and the theft, we experienced a pretty hefty loss. When we called to report this, we were impressed that a police officer and a detective came out. They took prints, swabbed for DNA, and took a thorough report. We were so happy that these … [Read more...]

Are You Flexible?

flexible

To be flexible means that our body is limber, pliable, and fluid…it also means that our mind is able to bend and to see another person's point of view…to be able to put ourselves in someone's shoes…to feel empathetic, compassion, non-stringent and to be able to "Go with the flow". Are you flexible? The other day I took an aerobics class at the gym to which I belong. I could tell there were many ladies who frequented this particular class, but this was my first time attending. To everyone's astonishment, except mine, the regular instructor was not there. (GASP) There was a substitute! As we were guiding our bodies in an attempt to become more flexible, I could see and hear whispers of disappointment about the way the instructor was teaching the class. She obviously was not doing the … [Read more...]

Doing the Right Thing

doing the right thing

My little thumb sucker Sometimes doing the right thing also means doing the hard thing. This is especially true when you are a parent raising children. Teaching our kids the difference between right and wrong is so important. Doing what you know is right in the long run can be hard to explain to a child when they can't see past tomorrow. For a couple of years now, my husband and I have known that we need to do something to help our youngest daughter stop sucking her thumb. She is the only one of our four daughters who has had this habit. My husband and I were both thumb suckers as children, so we both know how comforting it is and we also how hard of a habit it is to break. We both also wanted her to quit before she lost her two top teeth to avoid her permanent teeth from growing in … [Read more...]
