365 Reflections - Reflection 18

One of the reasons I started blogging was to preserve memories for my son. No, I am not dying of some terrible, brain-rotting disease. I just wanted him to have a collection of things written by his mother so that when and if he ever wanted to know me as a person and not just the rule maker, provider, disciplinarian - whatever......more

WHEN IT IS TIME TO STOP WASTING TIME ON UNGRATEFUL PEOPLE?......"PULLING IN THE RUG...."

  WHEN TO STOP…..When To “PULL IN THE RUG….” I simply think sometimes in life we can overdo things…..Especially for ungrateful people……There are simply people out there we need to quit doing for in my opinion……Lack of gratitude is one of the key reasons for my pulling back from people who I normally would do for…. Lack of gratitude often comes when we give constantly to a situation without expecting much in return outside of respect and perhaps an occasional” thank you”…..When we don’t get either of those things I truly think in many if not most cases it is time...more

THE INCREDIBLE YOU.....

  THE INCREDIBLE YOU……. You don’t have to be Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, or any other rich and famous person to have an incredible life….You simply have to be YOU……..You get to create your life just the way you want…..Riches and fame do not in itself make for an incredible life…..An incredible life includes your life experiences…what you love…..and who you are…..You are the one that makes for an incredible life…..not the things you accumulate… So often people think that the rich and famous “have it made…” and in some ways they are right but in most ways they hav...more

THE POWER OF A COMPLIMENT.....

THE POWER OF A COMLIMENT…..It is amazing how a person’s face will light up when we say something nice to them aka a compliment……I love seeing that reaction after I have paid them an honest compliment…..Notice how I said “honest?”……A fake compliment is almost always noted and usually doesn’t do much for a person. It ends up causing you to lose your credibility when your compliment is not honest but fake…..An HONEST COMPLIMENT can do wonders for another person as well as endear them to you…....more
