2014 – 3 words to live by


I love when inspiration bounces around from one person to the next. It’s how the world changes really. Today I got just that.  My fellow blogger, Beth Ann shared her 2014 theme song and 3 words for the year. You can see her blog here: Beth Ann Chiles

And she was inspired by Chris Brogan and his words for the year. Here’s his blog: Chris Brogan

Based on what I’ve read from the two of them, I’m adding my 3 words to my already uplifting 2014 theme song of “Happy” that I posted yesterday.  My words:


BELIEVE
(in God’s promises, my gifts, my dreams, my possibilities, my success, my intuition, my heart …)

EXPAND (my reach, my mind, my influence, my knowledge, my offerings, my vision …)

ENJOY (the here and now, my path, my relationships, my special moments, the journey, myself …)

What 3 words and song inspire you my friends? Do tell … and be blessed!

 

 

Musical Interlude

Shhhhhh … it’s a secret!


I LOVE surprises!

I know not everyone does but I feel like a giddy child when I’m in the process of planning one. My senses are on heightened alert for any chance to be found out. I smile … alot, and sometimes spontaneously let out a giggle just knowing that someone I love is going to receive just the perfect something. When it’s a really good one I have to cover my mouth to keep from blurting the delicious details.

I love the thrill of the hunt best of all. As an avid bargain shopper it’s even a colossally bigger joy if I find what I’m looking for on sale. Sometimes I linger in this exciting phase for months, just crawling out of my skin for the secret keeping. Oh, how I savor the covert planning! And as with all self-respecting extroverts with a secret surprise, I always have to find a friend or family member with whom I can conspire. It’s fun to whisper, pass winks and knowing glances, sometimes right in front of the surprisee when they don’t even recognize it. It’s a rich and heady thing, this keeping of secrets.

And right now … I HAVE A SURPRISE!  I just might burst for having to wait to deliver it, but wait I must. If you hear a random giggle or snort, yep it just might be me. teehee!

First be who you really are …


“Often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things, or more money, in order to do more of what they want, so they will be happier. The way it actually works is the reverse. You must first be who you really are, then do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” ~ Margaret Young
