Travel Choices #2- Will You Fuel the Drama?

image

I’ve been traveling a good bit this summer, and some of you may remember that crazy day I had in while traveling to SC.  Here is a follow-up video about TRAVEL.  

This is #2 in the Travel Choices – 1-2-3 videos.  It took place a few weeks ago.

 

What travel tip do you have to share with the others?

Question: Have you had a travel experience you want to share? What choices did you have to make? 

Life is Fun – Change it up a bit

life-is-fun-do-something-different

I was talking to some friends and several of them were saying that they felt like they were in a ‘Rut’.   Have you ever felt that way?  The holidays are over, the weather is… well, not so great in many places around the country, and we are all waiting for Spring… Right?

.

So let’s Change it Up!  Pick one thing to do this week (make that each week) that is totally out  of your routine, not on your list, and spontaneous.  (Yes, it is OK to just jump in and do something different!)  Here are a few examples just in case you need a little jump-start. (If you do these on regular basis that doesn’t count – it has to be different from your regular routine).

.

  • Go to the movie in the middle of the day, have popcorn

  • Maybe just go OUT to a movie and out of the house

  • Stay in your warm ups all day, and read a book… maybe even a ‘real’ one with pages =)

  • Go outside for a walk, if the weather is nice, or maybe bundle up and just go out for some fresh air depending on where you live

  • Call a friend and meet for coffee/tea… or glass of wine

  • Take the kids to the park for a picnic – peanut butter and jelly is great in the park

  • Go downtown to a ‘greasy spoon’ and eat sloppy but yummy food

  • Order pizza and eat it in the dining room on your fine china

  • If you are close enough, pack an overnight bag and drive to the beach (ummm I’m only 4 hours away, I think sounds like one for moi)

.

What are your ideas – what will you do THIS week that is out of the ordinary? Life is Fun, sometimes we just need to choose to do something to Change it Up!

BLESSINGS! Go out and make it a great day!

When to Finish . . .

finish-line

It is Monday morning and as I sit here trying to decide which of my three projects to work on today, it seemed like a good time to share a little priority management, or maybe I should call it ‘Delinda self management’.  

I have three big projects that I need to handle, take care of…Do.  My nature is to do the things I like to do first, and put off the others.  Unfortunately, the ‘others’ then begin to ‘grow’ in my head until they feel totally overwhelming.  Do you ever feel that way?  That’s when I take a look at them and begin to break it down and decide when to start, but more importantly, when to finish.

  1. Organize the garage so I can move everything out of the local storage area and into it. Since I need to get the Christmas decorations out of storage anyway, it seems like a good time to do it AND they raised the rent on the storage by 25%… yikes! Yep, it looks like more releasing, because I know it is not all going to fit.

  2. Edit videos from a couple of the Fun Fearless Female events and post on website (This is my favorite one to do, even though I am just learning how to do it, and it takes a while. Actually it takes hours on the computer and a lot of focus, but I like it and the results).

  3. Begin preparing for the Nevada Real Estate course and test.  (I am having to do some major mental adjustments for this one.)  Many of you know I have been a Broker in Kansas for some 35 years, and it is time to get licensed here in Nevada. In our family I am the ‘test taker’ for our management company. Bill runs the company and it must be licensed in each state where we do business, so it is important to do. However, my mind has to do the mental shift from ‘book learning and test-taking’, to creative and fun.  Like many things it was easier in my 30s than it is now.  Can anyone out there relate??? 

All of this to say, we when look at the choices of things to do and accomplish, it helps to put a time frame around it.  Sometimes we may have to shift or extend the time-frame, but we come closer to getting the job done if we do.  For example, the ‘storage area’, the rent goes up December 1st, so I can choose to pay the new amount for a month or two, or I can choose to get it done by end of November. 

 

Some of the video footage I have has been in my computer for a year… I know, pretty bad huh?  The new footage from the Las Vegas Event is fresh and inspires me to get it posted by the end of this week. The Nevada Law class and the RE test… I’m giving it until the end of the year.

For me, setting those time frames helps me focus, adjust my daily schedule, and feel like I am making progress.

So today, I am going to spend 1-2 hours in the garage, shifting, moving, eliminating, etc. during the day hours when it is nice outside, work a few hours on the videos in the later afternoon and evening, and the RE…. maybe tomorrow.  Ha, Ha,Ha! OK, so tomorrow I’ll get up and spend the morning, 3-4 hours on the RE law class.

Go out and make it a great day!

SMILE Day

 

imgres-1

What can you give away, that costs you nothing,

yet it can be worth more than money can buy?

=)

Today is National SMILE day

=)

It doesn’t take much effort to Smile.  Mostly, I think it is a matter of thinking about it,  be intentional.  To some people it comes very naturally, but to others . . . not so much. If it doesn’t come easily to you, think about it and decide that today is going to be your ‘Smile’ day.  I know that sounds a little silly, but if you go out the door and decide you are going to smile at those you meet, you may be surprised at what a nice day you will have.  

It takes the focus off of you and puts it on others.  In most cases the person you give a Smile to will Smile back, but not always.  That’s OK.  I find that when I Smile at someone it blesses me even if they don’t Smile back.   There is something really good about it.  It makes my day better, it gives me joy to Smile and when they do Smile back– well that is icing on the cake.

How many Smiles can you give away today?

You can always go one step further, smile and say something nice.  It puts you ‘out there’ a little more, but so often it really can make someone’s day.  Maybe a “Good Morning”, “Nice to see you”, or “…you look great today”, etc.  I recall a day when I met a lady in a department store where we were both shopping.  I said hello and told her how nice she looked.  She got tears in her eyes, and at first I thought maybe I had offended her.  I apologized and she said it she couldn’t remember the last time she had gotten a compliment, and she smiled.

Such a simple thing, a Smile, a kind word . . . it makes a difference.  You never know how much someone might need it.

God’s Frig . . .

article-new-thumbnail-ds-photo-getty-article-142-74-86508736_XS

A quote from Max Lucado – a sweet friend sent me a card with this quote on it, so I decided to share it . . . a little smile for you this morning.

 

If God had a refrigerator,

YOUR picture would be on it.

If He had a wallet

YOUR photo would be in it.

He sends you flowers every spring

and a sunrise every morning.

 

You are the apple of His eye and the Delight of His heart.

 

Blessings to you all.
