I like nonsense as well as the next guy. But this week has just been plumb full of it.

 

 

So my cold decided to settle in my ears. I am thinking cool I can handle that. Deaf for a few days means I don't have to listen to the kids bickering and arguing every few minutes.
 


Oh don't roll your eyes at me. You know your kids are doing it right now in the other room. “Mom she's touching me.” “Mom he's eating his boogers again and he just told me he is going to make me eat the next one.”

 

You know you want to shove some cotton in your ears and join me. ;)



So being deaf was fine. Except for, “Hey what did you say? Your going to have to speak up honey, I can't hear a thing your saying?” *There's a flash into the future.*



Well then heaven forbid I decided I needed to go in my bathroom. Unbeknownst to me Miss Thing, also known as our cat, decided she did not like the flavor of her water today. So she flipped her bowl over onto the bathroom tile. Letting the water pool around on the floor until it was more to her liking.

 

Well...

 

Water + Tile = Fall crashing to the floor.

 

In my oh so graceful (insert picture of a rhino in a tutu here) lady like manner, I managed not to hit my head too hard on the side of the tub. And in my effort to keep from knocking myself completely unconscious my legs went in directions they were never supposed to go.

 

I managed to bang up my knee, smash my shin, twist the hell out of my ankle, and jam up my wrist for good measure. And did I mention I broke a nail, "Oh darn."

 

I am sure it would of made a great comedy. But my poor hubby was not laughing as I had bits and pieces where they weren't supposed to be and me trying to not go skating again as I got up.

 

By that time I had completely forgotten what the hell I had gone into the bathroom for.  Though I can't imagine why.  hahaha

 

The point being though is there is humor to be found in everything. And life is going to hand you lemons. It's up to you whether you are going to make lemon pie, lemonade, or just be sour.

 

I could of chosen to get really angry about the whole damn thing and for a minute I did, but honestly what would that have gotten me. 

 

So instead I thought I would make something fun for you to read.  We all have been there.  We all have crap days and moments. 

 

 

Today I am looking for my feather. I will again tomorrow too if I get handed something else. I am a phoenix and I choose to always find the silver lining and always find a way to fly!

 

 

Your life is what you choose it to be! What will you choose today?

Yesterday I posted up a video about taking action and doing something you want to do. Stop living on the sidelines and just do something. Even if it was little.

 

 

Usually Ten Minute Time Out Thursday is about self care. This is a big part of self care, but we kind of see it as not important at some point.  We kind of just decide this is not something grown ups do!

 

 

I am asking you to dream big today.

 

Ditch that bucket list and start creating your Inspired To Live List!

 

It can be as short as long as you want. But really take the time to make your list.  I think mine will probably be about 30 things I want to do in the next 5 years.

 

I am making mine tonight. I am going to be sharing it too on my video comments. And I will also come back here and put it in the comment section below too.

 

 

Dreams are important. Living a life that inspires you is important. So.....

 

 

Besides it is kind of fun sometimes to create....

 

 

I know I feel inspired everyday when I come to my blog or when I make a video to share with you.

 

What spark can I ignite for you today? What magic can I remind you of today? Where can I turn next to truly make my life full of wonder and share that wonder with you?

 

And I am never alone. That is the best part! I am never alone! And neither are you.

Last year we took a little trip to nowhere.  We just got in the car and went for a ride.  Actually we do this alot.  We are always down for a good road trip.  It was a lot of fun and I found the pictures today and thought I would share. 

 

 

I never can get him to quite smile.  ;)

 

 

My precious princess ready to see the world. =D

 

 

And the little guy, life is always good after chocolate!  Look at that grin. 

 

 

Where did your world take you today?

Hey haven't we done this before today? 

 

 

We all have those moments where we think we have been here or we start to see that thing we want everywhere we go.  It's enough to make you wonder if you are psychic or just psycho. 

 

Your not!  I promise you are normal.  Well as normal as everyone else that is. 

 

What you are most likely experiencing is something called R.A.S. or reticular activating system.  This is a function in your brain that when you start to think about something or focus on it, you will see it just about everywhere. 

 

So the cool thing about this little trick our brain pulls on us, is it let's us see who else has what we are looking to get or have just gotten.  It let's us make connections by hieghtening our senses around this thing.  Be it a top, or a car, or a life changing decision.  We will start to notice other people who have the exact same thing or who are doing the exact thing we are doing. 

 

And that makes it easier for you to connect with others and share your experiences.  Which can lead to friendships, community, and so much more just from one decision. 

 

We make decision every single day and sometimes we feel so alone or overwhelmed by them, but if we just take a minute R.A.S. will actually allow us to find others doing that exact same thing and give us ways to connect to them.

 

I love R.A.S because it is how I found the group that I work with now.  Yes I own my own business.  Yes I run it my own way.  But my community of friends is always there and we support each other, lift each other up, and give it to each other straight when we need to, and I never would of found it without R.A.S.

 

You're not here by chance.  Learn more about what I do!

I know, I know, it's a criminal. My What You Reading Monday on a Tuesday. But yesterday I had one of those killer migraines. And it really was all I could do to pull my head out of the covers long enough to help out with our Rebel TV show. After that it was back to having my head buried in the covers.

 

 

So this week's book is a really quick read. And super helpful.

 

 

Last week I was noticing my wording on my goals was a off. And while I was starting to see results it was not exactly in the way I had wanted it to happen. So I decided this weekend I need to take a break from last weeks book (I am going over it again to dig into all those juicy exercises) and tweak my words and thoughts.

 

I already had the book just the perfect for that too.

 

 

The ultimate introduction to NLP. How to build a successful life

 

 

This book is a real quick read. And while it sounds really intimidating it is so easy to read. It has a great flow and when you are done you really feel like you have an good grasp of NLP.

 

 

One of the things I love most about this book is that you feel like you have been there. You understand how to use the concepts in it. And it gives you a great starting point to make changes starting right now.

 

NLP or Neuro Lingistic Programming as it is known might seem like a very hard subject to grasp and the thought or programming your mind and your brain might even seem a little terrifying. But honestly this book makes it simple and it really gives you the tools you need to make those little daily tweaks we all need. And it also helps you cover some of the harder issues as well.

 

It's totally worth your time. And is really a great afternoon or weekend read.
