Another Time To Enjoy

A Light-bulb Moment

To avoid taking down my Christmas lights, I’m turning my house into an Italian restaurant.  Patrick McLellan (@pmclellan)

Confessions of a Store Santa

While I was working as a store Santa, a boy asked me for an electric train set. “If you get your train,” I told him, “your dad is going to want to play with it too. Is that all right?”

The boy became very quiet. So, moving the conversation along, ?I asked, “What else would you like Santa to bring you?”

He promptly replied, “Another train.”  From

A Kid With A Dream

For Martin Luther King Day, ?I asked my fifth graders how they’d make the world a better place. One said, “I’d make potato skins a main dish rather than an appetizer.”

8 Days’ Worth

Mary goes to the post office to buy 50 stamps for her Hanukkah cards. “What denomination?” asks the postal clerk.

Mary thinks a second before ?replying, “Give me six Orthodox, ?12 Conservative, and 32 Reform.”

No Umbrellas at the North Pole?

Q: Why are Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen always wet?

A: Because they are rain deer.

Oh, iGet It

Q: What do you get when you combine a Christmas tree with an iPad?

A: A pineapple.

Becoming more organized:
My friend’s husband is always telling her that housekeeping would be a snap if only she would organize her time better. Recently he had a chance to put his theory into practice while his wife was away.

When I popped in one evening to see how he was managing, he crowed, “I made a cake, frosted it, washed the kitchen windows, cleaned all the cupboards, scrubbed the kitchen floor, walls and ceiling and even had a bath.”

I was about to concede that perhaps he was a better manager than his wife, when he added sheepishly, “When I was making the chocolate frosting, I forgot to turn off the mixer before taking the beaters out of the bowl, so I had to do all the rest.” — Mary I. Costain

As you think so you will manifest.  The oil of Believe has kept me on my path.  I also use Clarity, Live Your Passion,  and Highest Potential to support me on my journey. Our beliefs are proven by the lives we live and not by the words that we speak on  “what we believe”.

As you look at your life what one thought do you want to think that you have never “believed”?   ‘I am ……..’    Throughout today consciously think on this thought and notice the change within you.

Enjoy your new journey. Share with us what you notice.

Home Stretch

For those who celebrate this time of year with friends, family, and cheer many of you will be in the home stretch.  Some breathing thoughts I use:  KINDNESS always works to defuse, de-escalate, and de-bother.  WAIT What is the results you want? What results will you get by this action?  YOU can be right or you can be HAPPY.

My oils Joy, Christmas Spirit,(it has orange, cinnamon, and lemon in it and reminds me of the smells of the holidays) Believe, (that others are doing the best that they can) and Idaho Blue Spruce, (the smell of the forest).

What choices are you making to create the day that you want?

Keeping the Momentum

We have been talking about our focus.  Today STOP and take inventory-what have you focused on in the last hour?  Texts? FaceBook? Personal e-mail? How much have you accomplished towards your goal(s)?  Are you surprised at the answer?  Do this several times through out the day and jot down where you improved.  Management of self results in greater productivity according to Darren Daily/Hardy.

Darren Daily gives wonderful daily action tips to help us keep our lives on the trajectory that we want.  Some oils that can give us emotional support are Clarity, Live Your Passion, Hope, Sacred Mountain, and Present Time.

How will you keep your momentum on this wonderful ride called life?

You Have It All

Louise Hay:  I act as if I already have what I want.  It is an excellent way to attract happiness into my life.

How would you think, walk, talk, dress, eat, act if you had your deepest hearts desire?  Start living that way and see what you attract. See what changes come into your life. Remember that gratitude is the ingredient that makes all lives sweeter.

Oils that will support this journey are many.  CLARITY  could bring it all together for you. It could help you to keep your focus so that you are successful in living a new way.

And The Breath Restores…..

It is easy to get caught up in the “lists of what I Must do” and to forget to focus on three of our basic needs; breath, water, and love.  Stop..inhale deeply through your nose and say Thank You.  Take a long drink of water and honor your bodies needs.  Look into the mirror and really see you and say, “I appreciate you”.   Do this at least 3x a day and build up to 5x and see what happens in your life.  It is magical when we recenter ourselves to be authentic.

Our wonderful balancing oils of Valor, Joy, and Harmony automatically keep us on an even keel.  Stress Away, Tranquil, Christmas Spirit, and Sacred Mountain are some others that I use for redirecting my soul energy.

How are you keeping things in focus for you?


In many of the things I study the dominant theme is –Focus.   As Darren Hardy says, “It isn’t about time management it is about YOU management”.  Keeping your focus on what is important to do to take you one step closer to your goal.  Turning off the electronics during your productive hours.  Focus on being successful today.  If you are granted tomorrow focus on your being a success in that day.  Day by day creates the Compound Effect and you continue to build the life of your dreams.

Oh you haven’t written that goal down?? It has been proven that it is easier to keep the focus when you write it down.  Some oils that assist in this journey are Valor, Clarity, Believe, and Highest Potential.

How will you keep your focus during this extra busy time in your life?

What Is Love

Dallas, Age 7

Love is when your mom makes a cup of coffee for your dad and she takes a sip of it before she gives it to him, to make sure it is okay.

Sue, Age 6

If you want to learn how to love better, you should start with someone you hate.

Donna, Age 6

My mommy loves me more than any one else. You don’t see anybody else kissing me good night when I go to bed.

Sandi, Age 8

When my grandma got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over to paint her toenails anymore. So my granddad does it for her, even after he got arthritis, too. That’s love.

Jake, Age 6

Love is when a little old man and a little old woman are still friends, even after they know each other so well.

Children tell us what they think love is.

Dennis, Age 5

Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on after shave and then they go out together and smell each other.

Georgia, Age 7

Love is when you tell a boy you like his shirt and then he wears it everyday.

Annie, Age 5

Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.

Jackie, Age 4

Love is when your puppy licks your face even when you left him alone all day.

Joe, Age 7

Love is when daddy comes in all sweaty and smelly and mommy still tells him that he is handsomer than Robert Redford.

Jenny, Age 8

When I had my piano recital, I was on the stage and I was scared. I looked out at all the people looking at me. Then I saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that and I wasn’t sacred anymore.

Bruce, Age 8

Love is when you go out to dinner with someone and you give them most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.

Vanessa, Age 8

Children tell us what they think love is.

You really shouldn’t tell somebody that you love them unless you mean it. But if you do mean it, you should tell them a lot. People forget.

Marissa, Age 4

Love is when your older sister gives you all her old clothes because, then she has to go out and buy new ones.

Amy, Age 8

Love is when you kiss all the time. Then after you are tired of kissing, you still want to be with each other and you talk more. My daddy and mommy are like that. When they kiss, they look gross.

Andrea, Age 7

You know you love someone because your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.

Best for Last

Leo Buscaglia, author and lecturer, once judged a contest where they wanted to find the most caring child. He told this story:

A four year old lived next door to an elderly man who had recently lost his wife. One day, the boy saw his neighbor crying. He went over, climbed into the neighbor’s lap and just sat there. When he came home, his mother asked him what he had said to the man.

“Nothing,” he said. “I just helped him cry.”

Louise Hay Practical Wisdom

Remember, our feelings are thoughts in action. They serve purpose, and when you let them go from your body and mind, you allow space inside for more positive experiences.

After you release your emotions you must also forgive. Forgiveness is your freedom to peace.

Go into your higher power and seek guidance to release negative feelings. Find the love within you and send love out to the person you feel is causing your angst.

As a Louise Hay teacher I can tell you that this is profound wisdom.  Valor, Forgiveness, Believe, and Joy are some of the oils I use to assist me on this journey to my WOW.
