My 2015 Life Planner – Sneak Peek #11…

There’s a new UPDATE to the launch of my Life Planner…read about it HERE.

Thoughts on November’s Quote: There’s nothing like a good dose of gratitude to gain perspective on life & to realize it’s not so bad after all. Cultivating the habit of gratitude is one of the single most important things you can do.

Recently, I’ve been using my iPhone to record every grateful thought that comes into my mind. This has helped me realize two things: first, there is a never-ending list of things to be grateful for, and second, the things that you focus on multiply. As my focus has been on gratitude, I’ve not only recognized the daily things that I take for granted, but I’ve also had happy thoughts & memories come back to me from years past…both have been a blessing to me.

Have you ever tried a gratitude challenge? If so, I’d love to hear about it. If not, feel free to use my idea above or you can check out my thirty-day gratitude challenge HERE.


My 2015 Life Planner – Sneak Peek #10…

Thoughts on October’s Quote: This quote has two meanings for me…

First, our thoughts control our circumstances more than we realize. It’s easy to blame everyone but ourselves for the situations we find ourselves in. Being a “victim” takes a lot less effort than being a “creator”. However, when we choose higher thoughts, we find that our circumstances improve also.

Second, we can’t choose everything that happens to us, but we can choose our attitude about it. There are so many examples of people who, by no fault of their own, find themselves in the worst of circumstances. And yet, they let those circumstances shape them into a better human being. Anne Frank & Viktor Frankl are famous for this very reason.

Viktor Frankl, in his book, “Man’s Search for Meaning” said he survived the Holocaust by finding personal meaning in the experience, which gave him the will to live through it. Through his research, he also found a strong relationship between “meaninglessness” and criminal behaviors, addictions and depression.

I find it so interesting that it is not the outward circumstances that influence our happiness, but rather the inner thoughts that run through our minds.


The Netflix #StreamTeam…

I was recently asked to join the Netflix #StreamTeam & I couldn’t resist. I’ve always been a fan of Netflix. One reason being that I hate to spend money on movies that only get watched once or twice a year. Another reason is because you can watch movies instantly from a variety of devices including: 

  • Smart TV’s – Netflix has a list of what tv’s work with a built in app and wifi
  • Game Consoles – XBOX One, XBOX 360, PS3, Wii and WiiU
  • Blu-ray Players – Just look on the box to see if the Netflix app is installed. Netflix also has a list
  • Set-Top Boxes – A list is on Netflix on which ones are compatible
  • Phones, Tablets and Computers

Another great thing about Netflix is the reasonably priced packages starting at only $7.99/month. For less than the price of a movie, you can enjoy an entire library of movies. As part of the #StreamTeam, I’ve been asked to post once a month on a variety of topics.

For today’s post, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of my favorite movies to go with each of the upcoming holidays. There’s nothing like a good movie to get you in the holiday spirit!
