In this fast pace world some of us do not take the time to smell the roses.  We are on the go from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.  We get up in the morning and the first thing is the coffee pot.  Just to drag yourself out of bed.  Even on the weekends there are endless things that need to be completed.  If you have children you are on the go to games and practices.  When do you take the time to rest?

Taking time to recharge and relax is essential.  If you don’t you are headed for major burnout.  Then what?  What good are you for your family and job?  What can you do to incorporate time in your life for relaxation and to recharge?

Watch a sunset with your family?

Go for a bike ride or hike?

Sit for an hour and read a good book?

Being creative here are some ideas:  Painting, scrapbooking, journaling, writing, gardening, golfing, building something and sitting in the garden watching the birds or butterflies.  Do whatever you truly enjoy which relaxes you and creates some peace and joy in your life.

By recharging and taking some time for you, it will help make you a better person to be around.  What is stopping you?   It is time to enjoy spring time and get outdoors and enjoy it.

Would love to see your thoughts and fun ways that you like to relax and recharge. ~ Patti

Leaving a LEGACY

What kind of LEGACY do you want to leave behind?

Leaving a LEGACY

What is a legacy?  According to Webster dictionary it means the following:

:  a gift by will especially of money or other personal property or bequest
:  something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past
The biggest question we should be asking ourselves is “What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?”
I ponder this question and looked back at my life.  The happy times, the sad times, the tough times and the peaceful times.  I asked myself, “Did I make a difference?”  Was I a good spouse, parent, daughter, friend, co-worker or leader?  Sometimes yes and sometimes not.   Did I learn from each experience?  Definitely, and could I have done better?  Absolutely!
Questions to ponder:
How do you want people to remember you?
What kinds of accomplishments do you want to achieve?
What precious moments would you like your family members and friends to reminisce about you?
  • That you helped people when they needed you?
  • As a good parent, spouse, friend, family member or person?
  • You were happy and accomplished your goals and aspirations?
  • You made a difference and contributed to this world in a positive way?
  • You were fulfilled with your life and most of your actions?
What changes would you like to make to attain a better legacy?
There is still time to change your course in life and live the life you want!  I know these are very deep questions, but it is time to look at your life and make changes so you can accomplish the legacy you want to leave behind.
Are there changes to be made in your attitude towards family, friends, co-workers by showing respect, kindness, compassion, and gentleness?  Maybe realizing we are all different and we look at things in our own way.  Are we too busy complaining and whining instead of coming up with solutions to make things better around us?  Are there apologies which may need to be said towards those we offended or hurt?  Or give forgiveness towards those whom hurt us?
The next big question is “What do you want to do about it?”
Be inspired, be happy and sometimes we ought to let go of what is making us unhappy.  Chalk it up to a learning experience, move on, let go, and learn from it.  Like the old saying goes:  Sometimes people come into our lives to teach us a lesson; something we teach others.  Which one are you?
I would love to see your comments and thoughts on what kind of legacy you want to leave behind. ~ Patti

Feeling Isolated

Have you ever felt so alone?  Even when there are many people all around you?  We all go through heart ache or times when we just want to pull the covers over our heads and not get up.  How do we get over this?  Everyone handles things differently. My experience is letting people in even when you feel like shutting down and pushing them away.  It is really hard for me personally to let friends or family in when I’m shutting down and wanting to isolate myself.  Being an only child, I like the feeling of being alone it recharges me, however isolating myself when things are rough is not always the answer.  What is the remedy?

Well, that’s a good question?  Everyone is different and their wants and needs vary.  Think about what you wanted when you were going through difficult times?  Did you want someone to listen to you?  How had you interacted with others?  What would of made things easier for you?  How do you wish people would have treated you?  If a friend or family member is going through something grueling or painful put yourself in their shoes and treat them like you want to be treated.  Listen with your ears and feel compassion with your heart.  Be kind, gentle, and compassionate to them. Show you care by being YOU. ~ Patti
