The Road Less Traveled
Here I am enjoying the quiet time of the day. I just love these moments of no distractions and lovely contemplation. I have begun a one month fast from all TV, in honor of celebrating my 58th birthday on November 17th.
I am so grateful for the special time spent with my daughter-in-law, granddaughter and son, yesterday. Just some relaxed moments, enjoying food, games and each other. My only regret is that I wish I would have listened more and talked less. Hopefully, there will be many more opportunities to practice listening more and talking less.
So what do I want to be when I grow up? A mentor. First thing I wanted to be was a Vet, so I could teach others how to confidently care for their animals, like our Vet taught me, when I was less than 15 years old. Now I have six dogs and care for them daily.
Next, I wanted to be a dancer, so I could teach others how much fun it is to dance and how great it feels to connect and exercise. I love dancing-all kinds! Now I am a dancer and occasionally, a dance instructor.
Then I became a nurse and a counselor because I wanted to learn more about why some people got sick and recovered and others didn’t. I learned valuable information about our bodies and our physical and mental health. Now I have plenty of opportunities to share this information on a daily basis. I love to help people. I love to listen and problem solve.
I have been learning the art of the Millionaire Mind and money management the last few years and want to share this whole new set of ways for thinking about money. I have just refinanced my mortgage and am in the process of eliminating three liabilities that I used to think were assets. Fantastic feeling being debt free.
More on these thoughts next time…The beautiful sunrise beacons and I am ready to leash the dogs and beat my feet to the pavement, feast my eyes on the ocean and breath the crisp fall air! Meanwhile I will leave you with my mantra and Holiday Greetings from one of my many role models, Cesar Milan.
Easily and consistently through education and teamwork, I am having fun building the largest, most profitable, highest retention organization in the history of Network Marketing!
Growing up in Mexico, we didn’t have Halloween — we had the Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos. There would be celebrations that were very colorful and festive and we ate candy, but it was different from the Halloweens we have in the U.S. In Mexico, Dia de los Muertos is within a couple of days of Halloween, and typically friends and families gather to remember their loved ones who have died. Around this time of year when I was growing up, I remember seeing skeletons dressed up as brides. Occasionally kids would get into costumes and go to the local store to buy candy, but trick-or-treating wasn’t done. It wasn’t a wealthy community, so the thought of handing out free candy was unheard of!
