Life is moving swiftly. Hang on and ENJOY!!

I am pretty excited about all of your "words"!  And my mind has been brimming with ideas which I intend to bring forth in 2014.  I am working on getting my tail organized so that some of these ideas may actually make it to fruition.  For instance, the mounds and mounds of quotes on Pinterest... I'd like to have those printed and in a binder or somewhere easily at hand.  Wouldn't that be awesome!?  I have a new idea for a retreat, and it is entirely about gratitude.  How to see the greatness in your life and develop an attitude of thankfulness all day every day. I feel so strongly that that can change your life (and ultimately the world), that I am dedicating the entire kids' art classes, all 8 weeks, to being thankful.  I think it's a really, really good way for a kid to start approaching the world and such a good viewpoint from which to see life.  I have to find a way to become a little more systematic with my coaching.  I have been formulating thought provoking questions to get my clients thinking more and to help them solve their own problems, because, well.. coaching is just that... we help get the best out of YOU!  Like an actual coach does.  No psychoanalysis.  No helping you with "advice".  Just helping you realize that the problem you "sense" is within you and the solution most definitely is! That's pretty phenomenal really.

I have started adding the dates for retreats, trips, continuing education classes (yep. I'm still a PT!), and days the girls are out of school.  When I got all the way to December, and added the days we are off at the office, i.e. Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, then did New Year's Day with a big, fat 2015, I realized... that's it?!  That's all the days I have in 2014?  I know, I know... I'm a little bit pscycho when it comes to that, but I just really realized it on paper that our days are so numbered.  There is so much to do and experience and just so much living to do!  (Todd says he is going to LIVE in our Airstream, and NOT on our property!  I make him TIRED!  He and I are polar opposites.  He'd stay inside his cave and watch football and build a fire and wear slippers, and.... every day if he could.)

So, anyway. Just rambling!  I have more to say, but I also have work to do today!  My friend, Suzy, will be here in about 20 minutes, and we are masterminding!  She's my creative muse!  I need her to help me get my head on straight and start creating order.  (Not sure she's really the one for that, but we'll have fun anyway!!  ha)

Here's to a great day for you.


 A few totally disorganized pictures (I don't know how to put them in my text!) to prove that life is moving swiftly!  This is about one year ago when my babies were 4 and 5!!  This year I'll have 6 and 7 year olds!!  WHOA!

I have no idea how you fit all you do and what you want to do in one days time! You are a good candidate for a clone so you can keep up with yourself lol

Here's to hoping you can squeeze it all in!

I am loving these invigorating posts!

You mentioned previously that you're using 2 planners. Which ones did you end up going with?

Love all your stories! Going back a few posts, can you tell me how you made the ornaments from people's Christmas cards? I did 31 random acts of kindness in December and want to keep on "giving" I love your idea". I know you're busy (that's an understatement!), but if you have time a quick rundown would be appreciated.
