Gratitude

February 21st, 2010 Angela

We often take so much for granted. Everything counts. When was the last time you replaced the bulb for the night light? How about the battery for the remote? How many filters are left for the coffee maker? Has the garage door been oiled recently? What about our family and friends? Do they know you love them because you told them recently, or is this something else we take for granted? It all counts. How grateful are you today? Tell someone you love them and appreciate their presence in your life.

Winter Layering

February 9th, 2010 Angela

Many of us are experiencing really cold winter weather with some extreme temperatures tempered with rain and snow. When we venture into the great outdoors, we are totally layered. The heavier sweaters, lined pants, scarves, and gloves have found their way out of
storage and into our daily wear. Oftentime as caregivers, clothing is not the only thing that adds layers. We pack on layers of memories, blame, procrastination. As spring approaches, these layers are not shedded. They stay with us until we make a decision to do something about them. What layers are you piling on? What are you doing about your extra layers?

Are You Empowered

February 1st, 2010 Angela

Are you allowing others to determine how you feel, what works in your life, when and how you make decisions? What is your next move? Do you feel that you have a choice in your decisions? Are the decisions you make most beneficial to you? Being empowered allows us to accept what is. It gives us choices. Our decisions can make our lives simpler and easier. Let’s make choices to be who we were really meant to be. We can empower ourselves. Everyone benefits from this experience.
