Ah..Yes.. the most “wonderful” time of year bringing out every emotion known to folks in the USA…from genuine goodwill to snapping anger. I have the pleasure of working at a very busy kiosk serving cups of happiness for a well known, well loved and well hated coffee company in a “destination” mall.
I love my job…..most of the time.
From now until January I will easily get my 10k steps in even though I don’t have a Fitbit to prove it. I will hustle and breathe deep as I wait on one person after another after another after another……
My intention for this holiday season is to be kind, patient and fast because most are stressed and in a hurry. Many will have loved ones pushing their buttons, financial and/or health concerns or the aching longing of connection. Others that love this time of year grinning ear to ear. And let’s not forget the children, teenagers and grumpy old men.
I intend to make memorable moments for people as they pass through the NEVER ENDING line………..
Wish me luck!
May you have many Thanks to count..I sure know I do
To you my dear readers I give my heartfelt thank you for reading my words…
May your holiday time be filled with moments of pure joy
Isn’t this what we all want?
To be recognized…..
To be included….
To be appreciated…
To be supported….
To be delighted….
I love the mantras of my part time job…the culture truly is to be a welcoming place
I hope you experience recognition, inclusion, appreciation, support and delight today!
Have you ever bought an online course you love?
I LOVE Money Bootcamp by Denise Duffield Thomas. I discovered her about a year before I bought into her money mindset course. She has so much free content available and won me over with her fun grounded advice. She really believes wealthy women can empower the world.
I love that fact once I started this course it is mine forever AND she does a new revamped live version every year! 2018 edition will be starting soon.
Check her out…maybe you want to be one of the smart women when it comes to how you handle your money. Denise is not a financial planner..she talks about money mindset…our relationship with money.
My relationship with money sure has changed for the better!
Here’s the link to check her out
Where does time go….mine disappears sweetly as I follow my “now” through out the day.
Each day is a bit different as I perform my various roles…barista, Hospice volunteer, Reiki practitioner, pet owner, home owner, neighbor, friend, sister, daughter, niece, aunt, godmother and oh yeah…blogger!
I can’t believe the last time I posted was before Thanksgiving kicked off the holiday craziness.
I had a fabulous time embodying the Christmas Spirit this year spending time with family for the first time in years.
New Years and January zipped by!
Did you set any resolutions you’ve abandoned already? I used to then I switched to a theme for the year.
The theme for 2018 is “Inspired Action” which has kept me quite busy….I’ve been very inspired the past 4 weeks to do everything BUT write.
Seems like that has changed tonight……
I LOVE the public library! Since I was a little kid I’ve had a library card. Back then librarians and card catalogs helped me discover books to read. Or I just roamed around until a book jumped of the shelf.
Now from the comfort of my own home I log into my library account and quickly put an item on hold. My local library website is easy to navigate and has the latest books, movies, cds, etc. I receive emails when my item is in plus alerts when it’s due! No late fees for me!
When I pick my dvd and/or books up there is usually a lot of activity…folks enjoying the butterfly garden outside, perhaps an event in one of the rooms, the used bookstore, kids playing in the colorful area designed for them, people using the computers and/or printers and of course the jigsaw puzzle table.
I am so glad my local library embraces technology AND community.
I sure hope they never go out of style.
Do you enjoy your local library?
Emotions. I feel mine. I don’t ignore them. This evening I am dancing with anger. I feel it to my core…deep, deep within. I find it humorous when anger is raging through my body, thoughts and energy field I get so much done! Anger spurs me into constructive action as I gain years this lifetime. When I was younger anger led to destruction…. I bet I’m not the only one.
Meditation taught me to be an observer of myself. I watch the anger release and float away replaced with thoughts of peace, gratitude and love
I came up with the name of my blog Ynotlove because I love so many things! I have a million ideas to write about!
My resistance is actually writing them down instead of letting them float in my head. I signed up for a 2 week class from WordPress to create good habits and a blog worth reading. I sure hope I follow through.
My first assignment is to say why I’m blogging and what about. I’ll be sharing experiences I love, books that enlightened me, people who inspire me, emotions that move me…the possibilities are endless. And I hope you dear reader are curious to see what my latest love is.
The why is Y not? I love to write.
