This weekend we went and played miniature golf and we had a great time! It started to rain just at the 15th hole or so, the boys finished out the game in the rain and Mattie and I hid under the canopy and watched! It was a great family fun time! Today, grab the kids and head to the "golf course" and Live An Inspired Life!

Wow. Thad and I have so much fun in the bookstore! We go at least once per week or so just to relax, hang out, sip our favorite Starbucks beverage and people watch. I swear one of these days our loud joy will get us thrown out! We laugh so much! We make fun of ourselves and our sillyness and we just enjoy one another. We have fun everywhere we go, but we love the bookstore! So tonight, grab your sweetie and head to the bookstore and Live An Inspired Life!

Everyone should have a "bucket list," a list of things you want to do or accomplish before you are out of time. My list changes, I often add new things and take things off as I accomplish them but it is fun to see the list change and it is great to know that I am doing things that I have always dreamed of! Today, create your own bucket list and Live An Inspired Life!

Take time tonight to reflect upon your day, your thoughts, your actions and reactions and think about what you might do differently or what you did really well. Daily reflection is a wonderful tool for personal growth and can really help you to understand yourself so much better. You might even have an epiphany! We rush around so much in todays society and we seldom take time to stop and think about what we do or why we do it. Get out of robot mode and take some time out to reflect upon the wonderful journey and Live An Inspired Life!

Search for the good in people, even if you have to look really hard! As told by Zig Ziglar, when mining for gold, you don't search for dirt, you look for the gold. This is true in people too. Look for the good in people, it is there, even if they are someone you don't get along with or someone with a cranky personality, search for their "gold." Life is built on relationships, everyone needs love and support of some kind. Be the person who sees the good in others and Live An Inspired Life!

Practice unconditional love on a plant. They don't talk back, they don't complain or bark or argue or slam doors, they just live. Take care of it, talk to it, water it, provide plenty of light and love it. Plants are easy to love! So get a new plant, something easy to care for and Live An Inspired Life!

Part of an Inspired Life means being a good listener. People love to be heard and it makes whomever your speaking with feel great to know that you are actually present and hearing what they are saying. Not every conversation needs a response and not every person who's venting needs a "fix;" sometimes people just need to be heard! So be a good listener, focus on the person talking to you, don't think about responses, just listen and Live An Inspired Life!

"What other people think of me is none of my business!" I love this quote so much! It is very true... I don't care what other people think of me! I believe that it is important to live your life the way you chose, not the way other people think you should. We all have our own journey and it important that we live and love the way we believe is appropriate for us. Do not let other peoples opinions or judgements influence you unless you ask for it. March to the beat of your own drum, don't care what others think of you and Live An Inspired Life!

Today, leave an anonymous note for a co-worker and compliment them on a job well done! Let them know that they are doing a good job, or that you like their new haircut, or just that they are always pleasant to deal with. Whatever the compliment, do it anonymously and Live An Inspired Life!

Today is my son Harry's birthday, he is 13! As with any birthday that occurs in our home, the birthday person gets a very loud and exciting wake up call! Carrie Sue and I went into his room and jumped on him and tickled him while screaming Happy Birthday!!! It was rather loud and obnoxious, but he really appreciated the attention.
So today... or rather tomorrow morning, wake up someone with excitement and joy! Let them know how thrilled you are to see them first thing in the morning. Make them feel really special and Live An Inspired Life!
