Did You Get Too Much Advice Last Week?

 

Sometimes at holiday gatherings, people like to tell other people what to do, how to do it, or even, what the other person is doing wrong (in their opinion…)

If you got too much advice last week (along with turkey) – on anything or everything – here’s a statement one of my clients shared that I loved.

“Don’t take advice from someone not living the life you want.” 

Now that’s advice I will take!

When someone is telling me how healthy they are, and all about their new diet, I take a good look at their weight, their skin and habits. If they’re not living the life I want I simply smile and walk away.

Getting relationship advice from a person in a rocky relationship, or from someone who has never had a good relationship is probably not your best use of time.

And I won’t even bring up – parenting advice, pet behavior advice, or even those determined to tell you how to style or organize something. Because clearly, what works for them is not guaranteed to work for you.

What you might think about instead. 

Observe those living the lifestyle you covet. Those with good habits that you can see, strong relationships across the board, and a generous spirit and instead of taking advice, begin to ask:

  • About their thinking.
  • About their habits and routines.
  • How they continue to improve.
  • If they can impart some wisdom in an area they do well.

Here is the caveat. Don’t ask those that aren’t living the life you want!

Have I told you “Thank you” lately?

 

Have I told you “Thank you” lately?

Thank you.

Thank you for being on this list; thank you for reading my musings; thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts, feelings and ideas.

It’s a gift you give me, your time, your eyes, your mind. Thank YOU!

This week is Thanksgiving and many Americans will be sitting around a table heaped with food and family, emotions and expectations. I hope joy, love and laughter too.

My one wish for you is this. Say “Thank you.” Rather than simply saying what you are grateful for, take initiative, and say to everyone you meet all week, “Thank you!”

These two words are enough.

Are you living today? Or in the future? Past maybe?

Are you living today? Or in the future? Past maybe?

What is your intention for the week?

Ask yourself…

Do you let yesterday use up too much of today? 

And/or are you focused on the holiday season events coming up?

How can you focus on the now this week!

An Interesting Question to Ask Yourself this Holy Day

 

If you’re reading this message, one could possibly think that you are addicted to your phone or inbox…

I won’t surmise that – what I will surmise is that you check in on things nearly every day and so this message gives value, or you know me. Ha!

Here’s my wish for you on this holy holiday, where we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Whether you believe in Him or not, or don’t give it much thought, people around the globe celebrate Christmas and we keep time by this date as well.

BC & AD – now that’s something to share with a younger generation.

And for reference from www.livescience.com “A.D.” stands for anno domini, Latin for “in the year of the lord,” and refers specifically to the birth of Jesus Christ. “B.C.” stands for “before Christ.”

Since Christ had this impact on the world, maybe in between your celebrations it would be a good time to ask this question of yourself.

What am I doing in the world to be remembered for?

When we ask ourselves deep questions, it shifts our thinking, opens our mind, and usually provides us with a new direction.

Will I be remembered for my writing? That is definitely my hope. What is yours?
