Be romantic! Last night Thad took me to our spot, the grassy meadow where we first kissed, it began to rain and we slow danced together. We exchanged words of adoration and recalled our first kiss and in that moment I thought about how lucky I was to be one with my soul mate. Thad and I spent the entire evening complimenting one another and lavishing each other with words of appreciation and love. Romance is alive and well my friends, you just have to participate in it! So today, rekindle the romance! Buy her flowers, slip a note in his bag, slow dance in the rain, make out in the woods, proclaim your undying love for one another and Live An Inspired Life!

Get a mentor! One of the best ways to get what you want is to be around people who have already have it! Step up your game with a mentor or coach. If you are trying to become a better soccer player, find out who the best soccer player is in your local area and ask them to mentor you! Being in proximity with people who are at a higher lever than you can raise you up and help you get to where you want to be. Additionally, if you are at the top, think about mentoring someone and helping them get what they want. Zig Zigler says if you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want. I truly believe that too! So today, get a mentor or be a mentor and Live An Inspired Life!

You can't control a hurricane and you would never try. You don't get mad at a hurricane, it would be useless. So why do we try to control or get mad at smaller things? We cannot control other people and getting mad is counter productive. If you want something to change, you have to change yourself or your response to the situation. Let go of things that are out of your control, let go of those who don't want to be held on to, let go of the past, let go of emotions that do not have a positive impact on you or others. Let go and Live An Inspired Life!

What do you want to do? Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? STOP making excuses and do it, be it or get it! Other people are not responsible for what you can't do, circumstances are not responsible for what you don't accomplish... you are! Everyone has adversity to overcome, find a way, get it done and Live An Inspired Life!

It is raining here in Upstate NY and when I walked the kids into school today, our wet shoes squeaked on the floor. So I decided to twist my feet back and forth to make a really loud squeaky noise and of course the kids followed my example! Even Ethan twisted his legs the best he could from his walker while laughing and smiling huge! Of course when a teacher rounded the corner to see who was making all the racket, I just looked at the kids and sarcastically said "Ethan and Carrie, stop squeaking your shoes!" To which we all laughed out loud and just continued with our fun. So today, be silly, squeak your shoes if you can and Live An Inspired Life!

There is just no room for gossip in An Inspired Life! Resist the urge to talk about other people, a life of integrity means holding our tongue sometimes. Speak well of people who are not there or don't speak of them at all if you have nothing nice to say. Lift people up, find the good, inspire someone, talk about the positive and Live An Inspired Life!

All major religions teach that giving is a virtuous act and that we should give without expecting recognition or reward. Donate, volunteer or drop off some goods to a homeless family and do not tell anyone that you did it. Let it be your little secret with the Universe. When you help out and announce it for all the world to see, or try and hold others accountable to see what they have done, you are merely serving your ego. Give in secret with a pure heart dedicated to love and compassion and Live An Inspired Life!

Having an office space set up and organized properly is vital to your professional success! Feng Shui is the Chinese art of furniture placement to improve ones positive "qi" and in an office, it could improve productivity and income! A few office Feng Shui for wealth tips are:
- Place a picture of a lake, waterfall or any other water scene on one of the walls in your wealth corner. Water represents energy flow.
- Use an aquarium or small fountain if you prefer.
- Place a green, smooth-leafed plant (e.g., a jade plant) on a shelf in this corner. You can substitute an artificial plant if you tend to neglect live ones. The allusion to growing wealth is obvious.

Helen Keller said it is a terrible thing to see but have no vision. I could not agree more! Today, create a vision board! A vision board is literally a board of things that you desire, things you envision for yourself, things you would love to have or do. My vision board has a hot pink convertible mustang on it and I know without a doubt that the car is mine and the Universe will deliver it to me. Have FUN, the sky is the limit! Create your vision board today, hang it in a prominent place so you will see it all the time and Live An Inspired Life!

We have some major flooding going on here in Upstate NY right now. Luckily we have not had any problems in our home but plenty of people around us are experiencing flooded basements, power outages and some have had to evacuate. In times like these... help a neighbor! They may need help pumping out water, or a ride somewhere, or even just someone to listen to them because they were scared. Whatever you can do.... lend a hand, help a neighbor and Live An Inspired Life!
PS... Kudos to my amazing loving husband for helping a person in the next town over to get to work this morning! I married the most compassionate man in the world and I feel blessed!
