The Year 2020

Posted by on Oct 12, 2020 in Inspiration | 0 comments

On January 1st, I would have said you were crazy if you told me what would evolve this year. Unlike anything I could have imagined, it has been a year of unending change and challenge. There are days when gratitude overwhelms me, and moments when my heart and soul feel sad and hallow. I focus on the gratitude as best I can, and acknowledge the grief with grace.

I have moved through the year holding onto the belief that humanism and kindness will always be the pathway toward good. So, I leave you with two inspiring quotes, that I hope wrap your own soul with a warm blanket of peace and calm.

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” — A.A. Milne

“So often in life, things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great, good fortune.”  – Ruth Bader Ginsburg

What’s most important?

Life moves fast. Where does all our time go? What are you doing with your time?

I recently added the Jelly Bean video to my website to share an amazing perspective about time and how we spend it. This inspiring video made me stop and think about the choices we make each and every day and what’s most important. It’s only about 2.5 minutes long, and I promise it will be worth your time to view it!

Dancing with life…

What we get in life is based on what we do. What we do in life is based on how we see the world around us. Choose to dance with life, and see what you get! Happy 2014!

Just Lucky?

During a coaching session this week, one of my coachees said it was just “luck” that a new opportunity was presented to him. However, it is my belief that “good things happen to people who do good things!” It is rare that luck just happens. When you do the right things at the right times, luck creates itself.

Go create your own luck today! By doing good things!

The journey…

We push through our days, focusing on our lists of tasks, forging ahead toward our goals. Remember that the journey, far more than the destination, is where life’s learnings and inspiration are realized. Don’t forget to enjoy the moments along the way.

We live life forward, and we learn it backwards. As happy or painful as those lessons may be, they are truly gifts. And, it is always our choice to do with them what we want.

 Hopefully, they make us better.

Give and get…

What you give to the world, does come back to you, and it is amazing.

Have you ever hugged a tree?

There’s something very special about nature and the energy from being around trees, well at least for me. When life gives you more than you feel you can handle, you may want to try hugging a tree.

Gandhi had it right…

Don’t expect change to happen. Don’t expect others to make your world or the world better. You can control your own destiny more than you think.

“Be the change you want to see in the world.
– Gandhi

Think about what you want…

I have found in my experiences that challenges many times arise because we spend too much time thinking about what we don’t want. Thoughts become things as the universe teaches us. So, spend more time thinking about what you DO want!

“If you spend all your time thinking about what you don’t want, you’ll most likely get it.”

– Cory Booker, Mayor of New Jersey
