"The Beginning" Weekly Wisdom

 

An inspiration quote in black letters on a white background surrounded by tiny red polka dots.

Do you see the champagne glass half empty or half full?

Winding down 2023, can you believe it?  Another year, another 365 days to review what happened, didn't happen, might happen in the last few minutes (you never know!). Maybe you are ready, maybe not. 

I always see the end of the year to be exciting because it's not an ending, it's a beginning. Whenever something ends, it leaves room for the growth of something new and to me, there is nothing better than those possibilities. I wish when the clock strikes midnight we could see the magic of what is to come but we can only create the beginning ourselves. 

Choose the champagne glass to be half full this year. Choose to create the beginning of all the greatness just waiting for you. Be grateful for the end and embrace all the possibilities the 365 days ahead hold for you.  I will be waiting and ready to pop the top to celebrate!

"Best Version of You" Weekly Wisdom

An inspiration quote in black letters on a white background surrounded by tiny red polka dots.

Do you show up in everything you do?

How many times do we do things we really DO NOT WANT TO DO?  Maybe we over commit, maybe we are obligated because of work or family, maybe we just don't understand our limits. Regardless of why, we will always be in a situation where we may be doing something we really do not want to do. 

In that case, we still need to show up and do it. We also need to do it as the best version of ourselves. This is not easy. I am that person who reacts badly when I have to do something I do not want to do. Negative self talks overtakes my brain and my disposition which can only result in the worst version of myself. It feels horrible and the whole experience is horrible. 

When I change the tone, show up with my positive pants on, smile and find the tiniest bit of joy in the situation - the whole experience is better.  It is easier to scrub the bathroom tile, rake up 20 bags of leaves or whatever task/event/commitment you are dreading (obviously you know mine now). It is mentally and physically happier to show up as the best version of you - for yourself or for others, it doesn't matter. 

Show up, be great.

"Where You End" Weekly Wisdom

 

An inspiration quote in black letters on a white background surrounded by tiny red polka dots.

What were you doing 10 years ago?

Maybe 20 years ago, 5 years ago, 1 year ago?  I bet there are very few things that are the same and there are many difference in your life. 

We get so caught up on where we are right now and what we need to change - too hyper-focused. The change happens gradually in most circumstances. It happens with heartache, learning, education, personal growth, economic status, social status, who you meet, who you let go...

Be in the now with your evolution, don't force it but do things that organically place you where you want to be. Put a note in your calendar for a year from now to remind yourself to look back at all the changes that happened from this moment on - guarantee those changes are putting to closer where you want to be.
