If you’re finding your days filled with too much ho-hum and not enough Zowie! then it’s time to search out the awesomeness in your life.

The most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.

Terry Hershey

It’s easy to miss all the little, but really important, things in life – it happens all the time.  In the busy-ness of our to-do lists, we lose track of time and then, one day, we look around and see that: the holidays have come and gone but our lights are still hung from the eaves; the lemon tree has bloomed and its produce is scattered about the ground; it’s almost the end of the first quarter of the year and our resolutions are far from done.  And/or perhaps even discover that, OMG! our kids (and/or grandkids, nieces, nephews, neighborhood tots and assorted other little folks) have grown up and gone their separate ways.

Today I offer you an Continue reading » Are You Missing the “Moments Where Awesome Grows?”

There is Never enough Time

May You Have Enough…

I run out of day before I run out of To-Do’s – how about you?

Back in June I saved a Family Circus cartoon that made me smile.  Cuddled in her Father’s arms, nightgown-clad little Dolly, tells him:

Mommy says it’s bedtime… but I wasn’t through with today yet.

That pretty much describes my day: it’s late evening but there’s still so much left on my To-Do list – leftovers I ambitiously thought I’d have finished by now.  Much like little Dolly, I’m just Continue reading » May You Have Enough…

Celebrating 4th of July

If you’re a proud citizen of the USA, how do you plan to commemorate 4th of July?

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

— Erma Bombeck

I don’t know what’s happening in your neck of the woods but around here folks make a pretty big deal over the 4th of July.  It’s not too hard to find a parade, a community picnic or a festival of fireworks somewhere nearby.  And all the neighbors show their flags and decorate their gates and cars and trucks…

So, in advance of all the whoop-de-doo that’s scheduled, I’m gonna indulge in a bit of whimsical celebration with this quirky list: Continue reading » Celebrating 4th of July

Take Action — Show Your Gratitude

Thank You Notes

How do we do that?

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

— G.K. Chesterton

In last week’s posts we celebrated the helpers who sprung up to assist an injured friend, a cornucopia of new beginnings for an off-the-track fitness resolution and the wellspring of hope that the habit of gratitude engenders.  All of which got me to thinking about how to persist in the face of various challenges.

Putting on the Christmas Flash

You're a mean one Mr. Grinch...

How about you – what’s your attitude/approach to the holidays – and how’s that working for you?

The art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change, for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.

— Charles Morgan

Much as I hate to admit it, I generally approach Christmas rituals in a [amazon-product text=”Grinch-like” type=”text”]0394800796[/amazon-product] mode.  To me, initially, it all looks like work, work, work.  And spending opportunities, spending opportunities, spending opportunities… Like I said, Grinch-me.

Call it pessimism, or realism.  Definitely NOT optimism.  Not yet at any rate.  Somewhere on the way to Christmas Day I make the switch to some personal and perhaps, rueful version of the HO HO HO that seems to pervade almost everybody else’s Christmas celebrations.  It’s a personal attitude struggle and then it’s a pleasure and then it’s back to the Grinch grind…
