Taking Responsibility

The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That’s the day we truly grow up.” John Maxwell

Okay, so this is the deal:  There are many things in life we have little to no control over.  There is ONE thing we have TOTAL control over and that’s the attitude we choose to adopt in response.  I know, I know, nothing new — but think about it.  There is NO downside to adopting a good attitude.  Or as I like to put it:  “It’s hard to be grumpy when you’re grateful!”.  What are you grateful for today?

Silver Linings

“The Recipe for deliberate creation has 10 parts: 5 parts of appreciating what is; 2 parts of imagining a little better than what is; 2 parts of looking for things that would make you feel better; 1 part of quieting your mind, relaxing and not trying so hard, being at ease at it” ~Abraham-Hicks Rye

Thanks to my friend Tom Murasso for bringing this quote to my attention on FB.   Are you tired of worrying about the state of the economy, our health care system, disarray in the financial markets, finances in general?  I heard a wise woman say yesterday to quit watching the news!  The Law of Attraction says we will attract more of what we spend our time thinking about – Yikes!  I vow to spend the weekend being grateful for an 88% employment rate, that finally our health care system may be improved, and for my wonderful job, home, family & friends!  How about you?

Declutter Tip!

I was talking to my cousin Debbie a couple days ago lamenting that I had not been keeping up with my 20 minutes a day of decluttering for the last few weeks & have mail piled up on my dining room table.  She said that she put a chair in her garage (where she enters her house after work).  She lets her dogs out to do “their business”, sits in the chair and goes thru the mail.  She has a garbage can there where she immediately throws out everything she doesn’t need to keep.  Good tip, Deb!

Sounds a little “woowoo” but we are often unaware of the negative effect clutter has on energy flow.  In my Feng Shui Finance seminar, we talk about the positive effect clearing away clutter  has on your mindset.  We also talk about the fact that space abhors a vacuum and you want to make sure that when you do have space, make sure you attract what you want!
