  • A Good Day to ALL!

    Here is a Swedish proverb: Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours.

  • And we're all glad you're here!


  • Thanks Penny for another great Food 4 Thought! After a horrid day yesterday it was just what I needed to read!

    I'm so glad I'm part of this group!

    Big Big Hugs to Everyone
  • I LOVE your Food 4 thought today, Penny! it's so relevant to absolutely EVERYONE I know!!!!

    I think both my kids could benefit from reading that. In fact, it's tonight's homework and discussion for the dinner table. I'm going to call it, "You Have a Perfect Life - Tell me all about it!"

    I've had a great day so far! Been to see my friend Jim Conlan in Houston and we decided how we are going to tweak my current demo to bring it up to date and create something that features the 'Me of today'. I like my demo but it's two years old and was made when I was a total rookie to voiceover. I now need something that will promote the more-experienced and more professional sounding me.
    My need for a demo has actually fallen into the trap of wanting a perfect life, hasn't it? However, it is our most important tool for this business and I feel very good about it.

    Roll on dinner time!!
  • Just saw this on Facebook and had to share it with you, friends.
    It's perfect for us positive thinkers!

  • Food 4 Thought

    This is an excerpt from: Living a Five Star Life, by Betty Mahalik

    In this day and age, we are surrounded by messages that virtually scream, "Your life would be perfect if..." My life would be perfect if I had a different job, a different house, car, nose, spouse, bank account (fill in the blank). Or my life would be perfect if I could be like some celebrity whose life appears so well-ordered and perfect-o. This week I encourage you to stop playing "my life would be perfect if," and start playing "my perfect life." What's the difference? Three things: being in the present, an attitude of gratitude, taking action with what's available now.

    When we're caught up in the "my life would be perfect if" trap, we've lost touch with the present. And the moment we detach from the present, we can no longer practice gratitude. Think about it: it's difficult to be grateful for what you don't have...and what you don't have is always somewhere out in future-ville.

    Look around you right now. Think of 10 things you're grateful for. Do you have a roof over your head and food to eat? I'm guessing the answer is yes. Do you have at least a few good friends or close relationships? Then appreciate them too, right now. Keep going, and practice being in the present and being grateful for what is here and now at least a couple times a day.

    You're also probably sitting there thinking "yes but." Yes, but I want more money, a better relationship, more time to travel, to be thinner, happier or whatever. It's one of the great mysteries I'll never figure out. The minute you stop focusing on what you lack, start focusing on what you've already got, and add the "magic" ingredient of action, you actually begin to attract more of what you want. It's an amazing formula for really living your perfect life!

    Let's say you want to lose weight or get in better shape, but you don't have an hour a day to spend exercising at the gym. Therefore, you've pretty well resigned yourself to not losing weight or getting in shape. What if you had five minutes though...just about everyone can find five minutes to exercise, stretch, walk around the block or walk the dog. Would you be willing to be grateful for five minutes and make the best possible use of it? Therein lies the beginning of your perfect life!

    A simple formula may help you remember how to apply this principle:
    • The present
    • + an attitude of gratitude
    • + positive action
    • = my perfect life.

    Try it for a day.

    Each time you start dreaming about how perfect your life would be if...come back to this moment, give thanks for what is, and do one thing to perfect what you have and who you are right now. There's a saying that "when the student is ready, the teacher appears." If you're ready to start perfecting your life, your teachers are all around you.

    What are you waiting for?


  • One of my friends just called to say his father is recovering well from a tripple bypass operation, and that he's expecting (as is his wife!) a second child, due to be born in 2 weeks.

    Isn't that wonderful - a family surely celebrating life and looking forward to the future :-)

    I should add this friend is doing great work to prepare Istanbul for the threat of earthquake - something many of you are all too aware of in California.
  • Thanks, Heather - glad we found YOU!

    You're right, Diane - only we can MAKE it a great day!

    Love to all

  • Make it a great day!
  • I really LOVE your amazing story!! I takes a lot of courage, no matter what age to step out of your comfort zone! I love all the positivity! It's so true, the importance on staying positive, I am so happy you found me:) Thanks Penny!
