What are YOU looking at? A Case for Rose-colored Glasses

And in what condition are those lenses you’re lookin’ through? Cracked, smudged, chipped? Sitting crooked on your nose and barely staying in place? Tending to see things a little grayer and askew? Thinkin’ you’re seeing the same old things day after day? What if, just for this week, you looked at the world around you with some of those “rose-colored” glasses?…

Seriously?? I mean REALLY? Are you kidding?

You’re kidding, right? You mean to say that the world will NOT stop spinning and business will NOT go to…in a hand basket while I’m gone, even for one day? Really??? Huh. After all those years of seriousness and intensity at work, I thought that would surely happen. I mean, wasn’t I the all-important glue holding things together? I also thought I’d feel more successful and worthwhile and valued and…. Well, wrong on all counts, as it turned out….

Just sayin NO… frees you for more yeses

Let me hear you… “NO“. A little louder now… “NO.”  Let me hear it again… “NO!” See? It’s as simple as that. Just say “NO”! What’s the big deal? Well, many of us have trouble saying that little word. We want people to see us as helpful and to be included in things so we keep saying “yes” when we really mean “no”. That little 2-letter word is one powerful communication tool that can help us in many ways…once we figure out how and when to use it. Think about it…

Cool as a cucumber… confidence

It sure has been a HOT summer here and I’m thinking thoughts of cool things – ice cream, watermelon, iced tea, swimming pools, sitting under a fan, hanging out in air conditioned coffee shops, and a night time breeze. Oh, yeah and Cucumbers. Yeah, good ole Cukes. No, NOT the veggie kind. I’m talking about those people who seem to move through life so easily and effortlessly. They’re calm, collected, and cool…as cool as Cucumbers. Just how do they DO that?

Out There on the Skinny Branches – Isn’t that where…

You know how birds live safely among thick foliage and sturdy limbs, protected from the bad guys? That’s a good, safe way to live, don’t you think? Kind of like how we like to live our lives…safely, securely. We get comfortable and settled in our ways and maybe don’t venture out much after a while. What’s out there further, though, on those less sturdy, wobbly ones… those skinny branches?…

It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature, now is it?

You can fool some of us some of the time…but you can NEVER fool Mother Nature! There’s NO kidding Mother Nature so don’t even try. There is a natural YOU in there and “she” knows it and keeps trying to tell you about it! You should always listen to your mother (as mine likes to remind me). Here’s what I mean: There’s a particular path for you – one that’s based on what comes naturally to you…
