Look for the Good

Every day we experience things we love, and things, well, that we don’t love so much. Life serves up plenty of what we don’t like, but you can choose what to focus on. Instead of worrying about the trouble, you can focus on the good that lingers in the very same moment. Give your attention to what you do like, what is working, the people and things you love and you deal better with the challenges that come your way. And, you’ll have a lot more fun.

Breaking for Spring and Slowing Down

“Life is so fast, that we have to deliberately slow it down,” said a friend of mine last week. Yes. That statement just landed. I resonated with its truth.

There is so much we can do, so much to access and take in, that sometimes I think I have to do it all. Nope. This trying to do too much in too little time leaves me unhinged. It feels noisy and chaotic.

Lately, in my efforts to stay grounded, I’ve had to say “no” to some things I care about, some things I really want to do. I’ve done the must dos — my obligations for work and family — and let the others go. Soon, I will feel grounded again and there will be activities I pick back up.

But for now, I’m deliberately slowing down. And as part of that, I’m taking the week off to spend time with my daughter over Spring Break. One thing at a time. This is my time with her. But, I’ll be back with new posts on March 28th. In the meantime, scroll through the others on this page for a dose of inspiration and information.

Happy Spring!
