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?
I had trouble falling asleep last night, so I scrolled through the list of On-Demand shows and decided to watch Barbara Walters’ final episode on The View.
(For the record, ~not that there actually IS a record~ I am not a fan of The View, but I am definitely a Barbara Walters fan.) Continue reading
You can probably remember who taught you how to ride a bike or drive a car or make your bed, but do you remember who taught you how to think? Continue reading
Love this gratitude quote from Neale Donald Walsch and had a first-hand illustration of it this week.
“The struggle ends when
the gratitude begins” Continue reading
This week we’re doing Experiment #2 from E-Squared by Pam Grout. As a group, we set out to explore the theory that
we impact the field of potentiality (FP) and draw from it based on our beliefs and expectations. Continue reading
If you’ve been anywhere near me in the past six months, you’ve undoubtedly heard about my love affair with #1 NY Times Bestseller, E-Squared by Pam Grout. This is, perhaps THE best resource I’ve found to help us truly understand how our thoughts create our reality. Continue reading
The very first experiment in my new favorite book, E2 by Pam Grout, tells us to ask for a blessing or unexpected gift from the “Field of Potentiality” (the FP) or God or the Universe or Infinite Intelligence or whatever higher power you believe in. You set a 48 hour limit and you ask for “a thumbs up, a clear sign, something that cannot be written off as coincidence.” 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.
Sherry Richert Belul invited me to participate in a Writer’s Blog Hop. Since I love Sherry AND I love writing, I said “YES Maam!” Below are my answers to the Blog Hop questions, which I enjoyed pondering and eventually answering. Continue reading
