Harry and I have a custody agreement even though we’re happily together. I care for the dogs Monday through Friday and Harry kind of takes over on the weekends. I find myself telling Harry what a little monster our darling 6 month old Baxter is.
Of course Harry defends him like any good doggy dad should, but why, I ask you, is Baxter so well behaved when Harry’s in charge?
I’m so excited to be attending my Master Mind event next week, but a bit sad that I can’t attend another event I really want to go to.
Both of them are business oriented, but there are loads of wonderful creative people at each event. Making a decision and choosing one over the other seems like a small thing and in reality I made my decision quickly.
The question is why are there 52 weeks in the year and everything I want to go to is happening on the same days?
Getting ready for a lovely lunch with my “sister” Silvia I know it will be short.
After all she’s a busy realtor and I have my product launch to get on with. So with that in mind I determine I won’t have a martini, or even dessert because I’m going to get back in front of the computer and get my work done.
One unplanned dirty Martini later our schedules were gleefully thrown into the air.
Fun, fun, fun, we laughed, we reminisced and shed sweet emotional tears together as only the truest and closest of friends do. I had the best of birthdays.
Thank you Silvia
Today, while looking at my outdoor plants, knowing that the warm southern California weather requires almost daily watering, I noticed myself feeling a bit rushed and put upon. Like so many of you I’m quite busy and in my case it’s helping others to feel happiness and create success in their lives. Well, of course that means I must walk my talk.
So, as I was watering my plants, seeing my dogs getting their paws wet as they frolicked in the fall out water I again noticed myself feeling annoyed. Words like “great another mess for me to clean up, etc.”. As I was reeling in the hose the thought occurred to me how lucky I am to have water to give to my plants, how lucky I am to have plants to give water to, how lucky I am to have a yard to put my plants in and how lucky I am to see my dogs playfully enjoying their time outdoors.
That’s what I teach, refocus to gratitude for what you do have rather than giving your attention to petty annoyances. This works even if you see these problems as bigger than life. Always find something to feel grateful for.
Baxter, Baxter, Baxter! Yesterday I found him sitting on my chair in front of my computer, paws on keyboard. Although very cute it took me 30 minutes to straighten out the actual changes he made to my screen!
Today after feeding him and my other pup KiKi breakfast, concerned because they don’t seem to be enjoying their very expensive brand of organic raw food I’ve been giving them, I ran my errands.
I spend 1/2 hour in the specialty pet store discussing doggy nutrition and finally picked out a food that I only hoped they would like.
Coming home starved, because, oh by the way the one who never got fed was me, I prepared a fruit plate with cottage cheese.
I went into the other room to get some water to drink and came back to find lil Baxter happily enjoying my lunch.
Oh well, I’m trying to cut calories anyway.
Live Your Life in Happiness,
I’ve been working up the courage to film these very important teachings, learn to use my TelePrompTer & use just the right backdrop.
