What Kind of Genius Are You?

IMG_0959 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?

What Didn’t Go Wrong?

fallThis 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!!!

Don’t Panic; Feel Grateful

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.

The Best Things in Life Really ARE Free!

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 :-P . Continue reading

A Sign from my Mom~on Mother’s Day!

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

If You Don’t Want It, Don’t Say It!

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.”

What’s Your Sign?

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.

What You Appreciate Appreciates

This was the beautiful scene I enjoyed on Friday

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

Ask (or… just write it down) and It Is Given

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
