A Dirty Word: Tip Tuesday!

Today I’m sharing a DIRTY word I want you to STRIKE from your vocabulary.

The “D” word.

And it’s not what you think…

It’s a word our culture has NORMALIZED because far too often we speak with a sense of #entitlement

But what if we didn’t?

What if we EARNED our reward, without assuming we DESERVE total happiness.

Is this what “The Pursuit of Happiness” really means?

How do you YOU react in these situations?

Do you lash out at the business? Do you leave negative reviews?

I’m sharing MY OWN experience, from a business owner’s perspective!

Happy Labor Day: Embracing Labor in the Midst of COVID-19

Happy Labor Day!

I have a cute little girl story for you.

Labor Day used to be celebrated on the 1st of September which happens to coincide with my birthday. As a child, I remember naively thinking, “I know my mom went into labor to give me birth, but so did other mothers. Why are we celebrating my mom’s labor?” Sweet isn’t it?

I know some of you are probably doing a psychological eyebrow lift that I didn’t focus on my birth, but I prefer focusing on my understanding that my mom labored to receive something.

Today we celebrate Labor Day. Because without men and women working we would come to a virtual standstill. If that was ever a “what if?” scenario COVID-19 declared it front and center. We know what the essential front-line personnel did for us day after day, week after week, month after month during the pandemic. But today is also a day to celebrate workers. No workers mean no restaurants, no hair salons, no gyms. No teachers, no truck drivers, no piano lessons. Customers can still shop for food, supplies, even luxury goods on-line. But, without workers, those orders wouldn’t get filled. Without workers our food wouldn’t get picked in the fields. Without workers, our garments wouldn’t be sewn.

Today we celebrate and embrace LABOR… the men and women WORKING to keep our economy strong.

Happy Labor Day to ALL the workers.

Monday Mindset: Use Truth to Find Yourself

Nope, this isn’t going to be a missive about our current societal ills.
Nor is it about the demise of our culture and what you and I can do about it.
Instead, it’s about speaking the truth so you can find yourself.

Huh?

I’ll make it simple with an example. Decades ago, I had an Aunt that used to “fudge” details.
If she was on her way she would call and say, “I’m on 85!” When in truth she was a few miles back on 101.
She would say, “I read 4 chapters!” when in actuality she read the first chapter and the last paragraph of the 4th chapter.
She wanted people to think so well of her that she puffed up her truth. Some call it embellishing. Some call it lying.

What happened was I eventually stopped believing anything she said. Even if it was the truth.

The best book says, “FIRST remove the log in your eye before you remove the speck in your friend’s eye.”
FYI…that’s the Bible (Matt 7:5) really neat life principles in that book.
So, for 1 week I paid attention to what I said vs what was the truth.
And I too “embellished” my truth to look better to others.

But, I had to confess, “That was a lie. The truth is…”
And that is painful and embarrassing.
So, I just started speaking the truth. Which is a much easier way to live.
And a lot less exhausting.

What did I learn?
I had to count on myself before I could ask others to count on me.
I had to have integrity before others could think well of me.
The truth set me free.

Are you on 85 or the 101?

Monday Mindset: Independence

Independence is defined as the quality or state of being independent. It can be attributed to a person or a territory. It also means self-governing. Lately and too commonly, independence is associated with a defiant stance. July 4th is the celebration of our independence from our dependence from the monarchy of Britain. But, have you considered that at the same time the 13 colonies became interdependent with each other?

As we enter into our Federal Holiday of July 4th, I encourage you to think about how are we, as a nation, interdependent. Who and what are we interdependent on? Could we be more interdependent? Could we be less?

But, I also want you to ponder what you became independent from but also what or who you became interdependent on?

Have a Happy and Safe 4th.
