Change Problems to Challenges and Lighten Up

Problem – something difficult to deal with

Challenge – a call to test your skill or strength

Changing your outlook can make all the difference. This is a problem sounds ominousness. This is a challenge sounds exciting. Our mind flip flops from oh no to I can figure this out. Example I’m out of chocolate, do I think oh no or how can I get some.

People talk about the reality of their life as if it is important. And we want you to understand, it’s only the temporary indicator. -your gas gauge is on empty-do you go to the gas station and look at your gas gauge in horror? “How did this happen? Why, why, why did this happen to me?” Do you lay your head on the steering wheel and just sob? “Oh, look what it’s come to. I’m finished. I’ve lived all of this life, and look where I am.” Or do you just fill up?”– Esther Abraham-Hicks,

Maybe we all need a little laughing yoga

It’s contagious

Here’s a Ted talk on the science of laughter

Live Live Live

Life is precious and slips by quickly. We look up and it’s tomorrow and we wonder what happened to yesterday or even what we did yesterday. We remember carnivals not checklists.

To live is the rarest thing in the world, most people just exist – Oscar Wilde

“Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what’s next or how. The moment you know how, you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.”
― Agnes De Mille

the fabulous Auntie Mame says it all (a must see movie)

Which Way Does Your Door Swing?

Are you waiting for someone to open the door and say Come on in
or
Are you pushing it open and saying Here I am?

If we wait for someone to open the door, we will must likely get rained on, tired, over heated and miss the show.
We pushed ourselves into this life,came out screaming and people noticed. If we had waited inside that womb for someone to tell us okay we’re ready for you, we might still be waiting in the dark. Cozy but not having a great deal of fun. There would be no ukulele playing.

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to your courage – Anais Nin

It takes courage to grow up and become who you are -e.e. Cummings

Refuge From The Chaos

It’s the year of the Wood Sheep

I’ve’ read many meanings and it seems to boil down to – A year to take refuge from the chaos that numbs us. It’s a time to come to our senses. Sheep appear quite mild but in actuality are toughies. They survive harsh weather, lack of food, the embarrassment of a bad haircut yet stay calm and focused.

I imagine this is what they are singing So take a bring and do a little new year dance

Dancing With Words

How we sometimes feel when writing or reading a book. A choreographer who is dyslexic expresses his experience. A truly amazing performance.

Unwrap Nature’s Gift

It’s a hectic time of year where we all get wrapped up in the wrong things. We can forget to leave space for the magic.

Watching this video may help put things in perspective.

We Are All Creators

We are all creators of the world around us. However we choose to do it. We don’t have to create a masterpiece to matter. A small thing like creating a smile for someone who needs one is enough.

An inspiring video that reminds us how important the strength of women can be
