I just read Randy Gage’s New Year’s post, where he encourages us to choose a Word-for-the-Year. Here’s what he said:
“Every New Years, I select a one-word theme to set my intention, guide me forward, and keep myself centered through the year. More than a resolution, it is an attitude for what kind of year I am going to create.”
I’ve never chosen a Word-for-the-Year before…up until now. And my word is
Rather than asking questions like
- What if it doesn’t work out?
- What if I can’t sell my house?
- What if I can’t afford that trip?
- What if I’ve always failed in the past?
- What if WhatEVER?
- What if I asked a different kind of question?
What if I buy this house at the beach?
- Sell my house in a week?
- Buy that house at the beach?
- Triple my income?
- Play more tennis?
- Meditate every day?
- Figure out how to edit the font size on this blog post?
- Write another book?
- Fall in love again?
- Win Pam Grout’s E-Cubed Selfie Contest?
Attempting to answer the first set of WhatIf questions makes me feel anxious, worried and uncertain.
Answering the second set makes me feel inspired, excited and full of hopeful possibilities. And it also makes me wonder
We all ask ourselves better WhatIf questions this year?
This quote has been taped to the shelf on my desk for at least a year or two…maybe three! I sit at my desk every single day, yet I haven’t actually read this in quite some time.
But today, for some reason, I paused and I read it. And I remember why I felt it was important enough to type up, print out on bright pink paper and hang on my desk; because I often forget.
In case you can’t read it in the picture, here’s what it says…
Your life is RIGHT NOW!
It’s not later!
It’s not in that time of retirement.
It’s not when the lover gets here.
It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house.
It will always be RIGHT NOW.
You might as well decide to start enjoying
your life RIGHT NOW,
because it’s not ever going to get better than RIGHT NOW,
until it gets better RIGHT NOW!
One of my goals for 2015 is to sell my current home and purchase a new one at the Jersey Shore. And I just KNOW I will be happy when that goal is achieved. In fact, I spend a lot of time thinking about how awesome life will be, just steps from the ocean. And today (and hopefully tomorrow) I am thinking about how awesome life is RIGHT NOW!
What about you?
Do you find yourself thinking about how happy you “will be, when……….” ?
What are you happy about RIGHT NOW?
One of my favorite daily emails comes from Abraham and today’s quote has perfect timing for me, and maybe for you too. Here it is…..

For the past two weeks I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with an idea I got from Pam Grout’s newest book “E-Cubed~Nine More Energy Experiments that Prove Manifesting Magic and Miracles is Your Full-time Gig.” Grout has a practice of getting up every morning and proclaiming the following: Continue reading
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. Continue reading
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

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
