“Every single thing that makes your life fuller and richer is worth doing....– Dorothy Draper
what people think of me
I just read a post where a girl said she didn’t care what people thought of her. She was on her path and just being herself. I actually care what people think of me. I realize this is a bit morbid but I wonder, what if I were to die tomorrow? What would people say about me at my funeral? They won’t talk about my business; my failures and my successes; my yo-yo dieting; my love...
SECRET KEYS TO MAKING LIVING FUN LOVE that fulfills you, FRIENDS who delight...– Dorothy Draper
Ever go to coffee and the cashier asks you if you’d like to buy a charity star or dove for $1 or $5? Well, my rule is if I’m in line and someone is beside me, then I always say yes. Even if I go everyday and have given each time, I still buy one. I don’t think it’s right for the person next to me to hear “No.” If I say “yes” then they may buy one...
Take time to listen
Catching up with old friends is one of my most favorite things to do. You throw out the “hi, how are you?” expecting “great and you?” But the response is unexpected and the conversation isn’t light. “Mom is dying in hospice.” “We’re getting a divorce.” “I can’t find a job after all these months.” Wow, what do you...
Ralph Lauren inspirational quote
“You have to do what you believe in and stay with it. Never give it up. Not everyone will agree with you. Don’t worry about the next guy. Don’t look over your shoulder. Don’t worry that he may be right. You know how to do it. Keep going.” Ralph Lauren 1992
GOOD is all around
A few days ago I wrote about tweeting a good thing that happens to me before I go to sleep. So now I’m spend the day looking for good things to write about at the end of the day. Not only I’m I super aware of good but I’ve found by the end of the day, I have more than one thing to write about. Calls from old friends, witnessing a blind man being assisted across the street,...
Good always brings good
I live in Toronto, and am working a contract in Vancouver for a few months. The first thing I noticed being here, in Vangroovy as a friend of mine likes to call it, was that almost everybody thanks the bus driver when the get off. Though it struck me as being very odd at first, I have, without really noticing, that I am now doing the same thing. And most of the time, depending on the driver, you...
Putting good out into the universe
I recently came across a journal from when I was 15. Filled with the usual teen angst- Who will I hang out with this weekend? Does he like me? Maybe I’ll be pretty if I lose 10lbs. Well, 26 years later I find myself challenged by those same issues. Must say, didn’t make me feel good to look back on my life and discover that I haven’t evolved. Now, I’m not saying we...
