I've not been feeling well for the last 10 days. Instead of pushing myself forward I've been sleeping, laying or sitting around doing nothing. It's a good thing.
Know why? Because it allowed me to "just be," which led to daydreaming, which led to creativity! I'll sum that up: Be, Dream, Create. I just noticed "Do" is missing and has been replaced by create. Big insight!
When good ideas came…I wrote them down in my journal. I now have several for some juicy posting.
I also had an insight and decided to change my tagline. I'm currently refining my ideas. This was not planned!
I still not my 100% vibrant-hyper-self so I'm only allowing myself to write this post and a bit of commenting today.
One thing I allowed myself to do was write a book review for Naked in Eden: My Adventure and Awakening in the Australian Rainforest by Robin Easton. It took me three days, I only eeked out a few paragraphs but I am happy with it. The book is a must read…can't say that enough.
Several years ago I was in a Mastermind group that was trying to get off the ground. It failed because the three of us were in transition and the timing wasn't right.
A week ago my friend Barb sent me the progress of Lorelie, the other woman in that group. What she has accomplished is mind-blowing.
Her blog is Verbal Remedies, this link leads to her Ted Talk, Crazy Ideas that Change the World! Check it out and while you're there note her "Pledge of Allegiance to the Earth" poster on the right side bar!
After reading what she has accomplished I'm reminded of Dr. Seuss and his book, The Places You'll Go!
Farnoosh,from Prolific Living had a "favorite movie contest" and today announces the winners and the 30 Best Films chosen by her peeps.
I wish I had this list before getting sick! However I'm not sure I'd be overflowing with my juiced up creativity.
Hubs and I will dive into to one or two this weekend as I continue to lay low. I plan on watching even the ones I've previously seen.
Danielle Laporte, from White Hot Truth is in a league of her own with her writing and creative style. Her post today is called, Initiated Women. She is truly which I'd credit to her success.
A few weeks ago I came across Maralisa's 525 Ideas for Your Bucket List. I got right on this and began a hot, fresh and revised list.
A couple of days ago daughter No. 2 called me and said she found tickets to New Zealand selling for $425. Once purchased they have to be used by November 30.
I proceeded to tell her how busy I am and can't possibly fit that trip in. She stated, "Mom, if you and dad don't go now you'll probably never go!"
I hung up the phone mad at her for saying that and mad at myself because it's probably true!
Katie Tallo, from Momentum Gathering is a whiz with metaphors. Check out "How to Launch Your Own Mutiny & Toss That Unhealthy Self Overboard." I'm telling you, a real whiz!
Karl, from Work Happy Now has been coaching me to Discover and Leverage My Hidden Superpowers. I've found him to be fresh, amazing and insightful. He's helped me relaunch my speaking career. I've moved from taking penguin steps forward to risking and leaping forward.
If you want to leap instead of crawl through the last 100 days or so of this year I'd suggest giving Karl a call. You'll have a head start come January 1st!
About that New Zealand trip? Not going…I have 3 speaking and blogging related trips planned between now and November 11th. (Thanks Karl)
If you know an association, a business, a women's group, a retreat or spa that is looking for a Rockin'Speaker I'd appreciate a referral.
Thanks in advance for helping and supporting me and making my dreams come true. I love you all!
PS Over Thanksgiving we're flying to Atlanta to meet daughter No.3's boyfriend's parents. Isn't life grand?
What choo' up to and what are you doing with your crazy and delightful life?
Let me know if I can help you in anyway;)
