gratitude: Let us do something exceptional today! - 11/18/19 06:53 AM
Let us do something exceptional today!How might the world improve over time if more people were to make these 6 words the first words spoken each day? This has nothing to do with achieving goals or winning whatever game we’re playing.
It’s all about being the best version of yourself and pledging to do whatever you can do to make this day count as being another day better than the one before.
You might be thinking something along the lines of:
“This is not realistic! After all, EVERYONE has a bad day once in a while.”
To which I’ll posit that … (12 comments)

gratitude: Perpetual Motion is Impossible? - 03/25/19 07:49 AM
“Perpetual motion is motion of bodies that continues indefinitely. A perpetual motion machine is a hypothetical machine that can do work indefinitely without an energy source. This kind of machine is impossible, as it would violate the first or second law of thermodynamics. (wiki)” I beg to differ . . . When it comes to generosity, the source IS the means.
The results of Generosity are multi-faceted – Gratitude, graciousness, good will . . . and infinitely available.
What’s “impossible” is the ability to measure the impact of generous energy/acts.
That which we cannot measure, we humans often relegate to the archives as being “impossible” because … (13 comments)

gratitude: 2 Great Friday messages - 10/20/17 06:06 AM
TGIF! I had the good fortune of receiving 2 messages filled with gratitude and abundance.
First – Posted by my friend Ben Jordan (Who may have posted from one of his friends)
“Showing support for one another, I’m looking for SIX of my friends to post this message (not share) to show you are always there if someone needs to talk. I think I know who will. #Buddycheck”
Second – The final line in Seth Godin’s post today
“If you’re not drowning, you’re a lifeguard.”
We’re all in this together, eh?
Hope you have a great weekend!

gratitude: Like a box of Chocolates - 03/10/17 06:54 AM
Forrest Gump NAILED it! The Month of March In Nashville Tennessee is also like a box of chocolates and is the epitome of:
In Like A Lion, Out Like a Lamb My Facebook post yesterday afternoon:
Well – It’s summer this afternoon, so I’m heading home to mow some grass – Tomorrow will be Fall, so I’ll finish cleaning my Basement – Saturday will be Winter, so we will have our Owen Hollow Cookout in the snow – I believe we’ll be back to Spring by Tuesday #schizophrenicTNWeather
Yep! In the span of 48 hours, we will experience ALL FOUR SEASONS>

gratitude: Monday Morning Coffee – The Little Way - 10/28/13 01:06 AM
Doing EVERYTHING out of LOVE! Heard in “Adult Religious Education” this Sunday during a very lively presentation about the History of a handful of Saints:
“The Little Way – Doing Everything out of LOVE!”
The rest of the presentation was very entertaining but paled in impact as I pondered the true power of The Little Way.
This was just minutes after the Oh-so-profound quote I had written in my pocket note pad from the Scripture reading:
“Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
I think I have some facebook friends who might improve … (1 comments)

gratitude: Yet another reason (or 20) to live today like there’ll be no tomorrow . . . - 06/11/13 08:51 AM
It’s so cliche. Do you know how much more time you have to live on this earth?
When’s the last time you thought such deep and mysterious thoughts?
When you die . . . what do want on your epitaph?
Are these morbid questions, or are they worth asking once in a while because we tend to take things (and people) for granted as we tumble through our busy lives.
Stopping to smell the roses once in a while . . .
Because . . . it really COULD all change overnight . . .
Don’t let that change happen and … (1 comments)

gratitude: Gratified by all of the Thankfulness :-) - 11/21/12 03:50 AM
  Today, I am full of gratitude for the work I am able to do every day.
Every day that I find a new client is a great day . . . as these clients quickly become friends!
The past several weeks have been particularly rich with new relationships showing up, and it is very clear to me that with more diversity of human interaction comes more potential for living a high performance life.
We fuel each other.
“They” say there’s no such thing as a perpetual motion machine. I think the human network IS a perpetual motion machine . . . as … (2 comments)
