Write, ponder about: What life events you have coming up in the next year, are you moving, having a child or becoming a grandparent or empty nester and do you feel excited, nervous, curious?
When we have new life events it can be a beautiful gift full of wonder and joy. With this often comes change and this can sometimes feel stressful.
Let’s release the stress and be open to new amazing life events.
Do something enjoyable and rare.
My Honey and I went on a double date with my brother and his lovely lady. It was fun!
My Honey and I enjoy time by the river. We’ve mentioned a few times we want a pair of binoculars to see different boats and possibly some interesting birds.
What’s something you’d like to explore more?
Here's a picture from a Grants Pass Oregon adventure.
It's a picturesque place. Let’s find some adventure in our weekend small to big.
Over the years I have enjoyed reading the Chicken Soup For The Soul books. At the end of the books they would let people know that you can submit stories on line.
I decided to check it out because I had a story. When I went on their site the topics they were looking for didn’t match but other stories came to me for some of the topics they had up. I wrote up a few and read them to my Honey and made a few changes and I submitted them. Then I did a few more.
Wow three years ago I wouldn’t have dreamed of doing this and I am glad I did. I have some fun stories to share and plan to include a few for my Dad’s father’s day gift. It would be fun and fantastic if one or more of my stories are accepted.
Let’s be bold and go for things we want to do. You never know what will come of it!

I think this is a great way to think outside the box and it gave me a great laugh too!

Father’s Day is coming, take some time today to think &/or write about him. What is a great Dad memory you have that brings you bliss, laughter or other enjoyable feeling about your Dad?
Usually I buy a beautiful wedding frame for a wedding gift. While shopping I ran across a great gift that was different from my norm. I am excited to give it to the couple on their special day.
Let’s be open to possibilities, we never know what will show up in front of us.
Taking a Happy Place Vacation
Write about a happy place you love to go to or create a happy place you’d love to visit. What does it smell like, is it by the sea or in the mountains…. Let your mind take you (back) there and enjoy the amazing experience.
Recently music has come up for me in a few different ways. My Honey and I were picking out songs we liked to create a song list to enjoy and a friend that’s family and I were having fun listening to music we listened to in our youth. It brought back fond memories and created new ones with my Honey.
Music can be powerful. Find some to add joy, peace &/or energy in your day!
While taking a drive on the Oregon coast on an unusual sunny beautiful day in May we decided to drive to Moe’s at Cannon Beach to have dinner. As we were driving I could see this dark cloud front moving in. When we arrived there were two fronts coming towards each other and the wind had picked up.
When we went to be seated, they suggested the patio. I was dubious with the clouds rolling in but it was warm and sunny. We enjoyed our dinner and headed out. Within 5 minutes of leaving the sun disappeared and the rain started. We were glad to have a beautiful outdoor dinner at the coast. It felt magical.
We never know when a magical moment will happen, enjoy them when they do.
Recently I was contacted by a news station about my business and I was nervous to call. I want to help people but going that big felt outside of my comfort zone. I’ve been working with a mentor, Helen McConnell, to release blocks to be bigger. Earlier, when we’d spoke about it I felt I’d be ready if someone called for me to do a presentation about it but some of the resistance was still there. I tapped about it, pulled on my big girl pants and made the call. It felt great move past this resistance.
I know when the next opportunity comes up, I’ll have less inner conflict and make the call!
