A few months ago, I wrote about the fabulous gifts my kids gave me on Mother’s Day. Yesterday, I pulled one of the papers out of my “50 Days of Happy” jar and here is the quote it contained.
“Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree,it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.” ~Albert Einstein
How great is that?!
Everyone IS a genius! Maybe you’re a genius when it comes to:
- Building homes, or
- Inventing things, or
- Writing novels, or
- Investing money, or
- Doing brain surgery
Or maybe you’re a genius at:
- Making friends, or
- Preparing delicious dinners, or
- Organizing a home, or
- Planting a garden, or
- Remembering people’s birthdays, or
- Hugging a child, or
- Loving an animal
Or maybe, (just maybe) you’re the very best (in my opinion) kind of genius; the kind of genius who:
- Realizes your thoughts create your reality and so you focus on what’s going right, rather than what’s going wrong, or
- Appreciates everything you already have, rather than taking it all for granted, or
- Spends more time thinking about what you do want, than you waste thinking about what you don’t want or don’t have or are worried about.
That’s the kind of genius I aspire to be.
What kind of genius are you?
Love this gratitude quote from Neale Donald Walsch and had a first-hand illustration of it this week.

the gratitude begins” Continue reading
This morning, as I walked down the stairs to make the coffee and start my day, I nearly fell. I caught myself and no harm was done, except for an abrupt WAKE UP from the Universe. GOOOOOOOD Morning!!!
Just re-learned a great lesson from a client. I say RE-learned because it is definitely something I already know, yet I don’t always remember. The lesson is that we need to appreciate things we already have; like our heart beating or our air conditioning working or, as my client is now experiencing, the software which runs his entire company functioning.
A week or so before Mother’s Day, I sent my three children the following email:
GOOD Morning Children!
In case you are wondering what to get your Mombo for Mothers’ Day, a Love List from each of you would make me VERY happy. For various reasons, all of you have limited funds this year, and I would feel really great about you NOT spending any of it on me . Continue reading
Anyone who has lost their Mom misses them just a little extra on Mother’s Day. Since that was the case for me, I spent part of the morning looking at old pictures, cards she’d sent and even more time wondering where the HECK she went when she died 27 years ago. Continue reading
I recently listened to a really great seminar on Prosperity and the teacher said something which I thought was simply brilliant.
“If you don’t want it, don’t say it.”
This is one of those You-don’t-need-to-read-it-but-I-need-to-write-it posts. Today, I want/NEED to write about what happens when someone dies; more specifically, about the “signs” we receive after they’re gone.
This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday
That’s a quote from the book E2 by Pam Grout. This week my master mind partners and I are doing the last experiment, which is called “The Fish & Loaves Principle.” The hypothesis is that
“if I change my outlook and make a concerted effort to look for goodness, beauty and abundance, it will show up in spades”. Continue reading
We all know the phrase “Ask and it is given,” but this is a case of “Write it down and it is given.” I LOVE this story and I hope you will too! Continue reading
