Personal Style

What is your personal style? Are you conveying the style that you would like to convey?

If the answer to this question is no, then what are you going to do about it. Let 2009 be the year that you tweak your style. If you feel that you are destined to be a CEO, then look the part! If you feel that you should be a politician, a doctor, even a what you have to do create a sophisticated style into the realm that you want to be in. When your style reflects your mindset, you have no where to go but up. You are your own brand and no one can position yourself better then you can. No one is stopping you but you!

Make it a great day!!

We Are Living In An Amazing Time

President and Mrs. Obama have set an excellent example for being great parents. Parenting and the improvement of parenting skills must become the top priority of all parents. My husband has set an extraordinary tone for our household to be better parents then our parents. Not to say our parents were bad, but you should always want to strive to learn from others and improve where you can. In this age of video games, amazing technology, and the Internet, there are so many ways that children can get distracted. It is time for parents to grab hold and accept our responsibilities of raising the best children and future citizens of this world that we live in.

So here is to parents that have made the decision to become better parents!!

Change Has Come To America....Do You Feel It???

A new day is coming and it is so hard to believe. President-Elect Barack Obama will be able to drop the 'Elect' word from his title. The 'Busheys' are leaving the building and I can not wait. Martin Luther King is probably looking down smiling on what is about to happen. As we rejoice in this day, we also have to think about what it is we need to do to make this world a better place. Obama can not do it alone and he has asked all to help. What are you going to do?? How are you going to step up to the plate and make a difference in the life of someone else??

There are many times when we are worrying about the smallest problems in our own lives, when there are people in much worse situations then we are in at that moment. It is time to LIVE LIFE!!! It is as simple as those two words.......just LIVE LIFE!!

We do not know when our time here on this Earth will expire, but we must make the best of the time we have before it does expire. There is a wonderful quote that says, 'For To Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Expected!' You are expected to do your part. When you do this, your blessings will come without you having to search for them.

You are blessed!!! Now, be a blessing to someone else!!!

Setting Your Vision - Don't be afraid to RECALCULATE!

We have all heard the saying.....You can achieve it if you can see it! What do you see in your future. Take some time to put together a 'colorful' image of your future. Vision boards are extremely popular and there is no time like the present to create one. Simply get some poster board and an old magazine. Cut out where you see yourself in the future. It is best to set some immediate goals along with some long term goals.

While doing this, think about how you are going to get to that point. If you set a vision that you truly want to achieve, then you tend to keep moving towards that goal. If you have no vision, you have no place to aim at in the future. It is hard to map out your route if you do not know where you want to go. Even the new GPS navigation systems can not provide you any help without knowing an end point. It is amazing how quick it will tell you how to get back on track if you get off. I think the lesson is that it is OK to get off track as long as you keep your end goal in mind, you will have the ability to make any necessary adjustments to get back on track. As the GPS would say ........RECALCULATING!
