Mom’s Red Face

January 5th 2009

The other night as my wife and I were putting our daughter to bed, we laughed about something – as we often do – and our daughter said, “Mom, red face!” with a big grin.

I asked, “What is red face?” and our daughter responded, “Whenever Mom laughs really hard, she gets a red face.”  I asked KJ how many times does she try to get Mom to have a red face each day and she said, “At least once.”

How awesome is that?   Wouldn’t it be neat if we all set a goal each day to see how many people we can get to laugh, and in some cases, so hard that they too can enjoy a red face?

Downsize to Downsize Problems

September 29th 2008

We often hear people saying things like “I wish I had…” and you fill in the blank, but many times people are wishing for bigger and better things.  I believe that much of the time, bigger usually means bigger problems.

If bigger does bring bigger problems, why not focus on downsizing to downsize our problems?  Just think, if more people did downsize, they’d likely experience bigger smiles, better days, and more happiness.

Slow Down to Enjoy Each Moment of Life

January 14th 2008

This poem – “Slow Dance” – was written by a teenage girl who is terminally ill with cancer in a New York hospital and it was sent via email by a medical doctor.
 

The teenage girl wants to see how many people she can touch with her poem.
 

It’s quite the poem and a great reminder to each of us to slow down and enjoy life one moment at a time. (more…)

Work, Dance and Love

August 6th 2007

I came across a great quote – surprisingly one I have never heard of before, but likely one you may have read before – that is one I wish everyone would strive to live by each day:
 

“WORK like you don’t need the money,
DANCE like no one is watching,
LOVE like you have never been hurt.” – Author Unknown

Playing and Living like There’s No Tomorrow

April 20th 2007

Are you living each day like there’s no tomorrow, or just going through the motions each day?

It seems like most adults simply goes through the motions: Get up a certain time, shower, eat breakfast, go to work, come home, eat dinner, and before you know it’s time for bed and a few hours later the alarm is sounding to start all over again. (more…)

The Pursuit of Happiness

April 17th 2007

My wife and I had the opportunity to watch the movie “The Pursuit of Happiness,” and we couldn’t help but be drawn in by the story of Chris Gardner (played by Will Smith) and his many challenges to make it as a stock broker and provide for his son, Christopher (played by Will Smith’s son, Jaden).
 

It was a powerful story that captivated and inspired.  If you haven’t had the opportunity to see “The Pursuit of Happiness,” I highly recommend it.

The Enthusiasm of a Child

April 11th 2007

The enthusiasm of a child is incredible. It’s non-stop happiness, silliness, laughing, playing….and rarely is there any time to be serious.
 
When it comes to adults, it’s the complete opposite. (more…)

Reuniting With Old Friends

March 9th 2007

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of reuniting with old friends in Illinois where we grew up and we had a blast.

We gathered to discuss and plan our high school class reunion for this fall, and we did manage to squeeze in some of the planning in our discussion, but the evening was dominated with catching up, telling stories, and laughing an awful lot.

Everyone seemed to have a good time and it was really neat to see and be with friends after so many years. In many ways, it seemed as if we never went our separate ways. We’re all connected in some way and it was great to see everyone just let down their guard, be themselves, and share some memorable moments from our high school days as well as discuss family and what we’re up to these days.

Stop and Smell the Roses Today

August 14th 2006

I read a quote from Dale Carnegie and it made me stop – if just for a few minutes – and give thanks and enjoy the moment.

Here’s the quote:

“One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon, instead of enjoying the ones that are blooming outside our windows today.”

I hope you’ll stop and smell the roses today.

Do You Enjoy Each and Every Day?

July 19th 2006

I was flying home recently from a business trip and someone said, “You know, people should just enjoy every day life. We’re all so very lucky and some people just take life for granted and don’t just enjoy life.”

I agree, and although I’d like to think I appreciate life to the fullest, I know there are days I’m not as appreciative as I should be for all the wonderful things I’m fortunate to enjoy.

Do you enjoy everyday life, or do things need to go a certain way for you to enjoy your day?

Do you have certain expectations on what a day should be like in order for it to be a “good day” or is every day a good day?

Do What You Enjoy Most

June 14th 2006

Malcolm S. Forbes once said “The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.”
 

Are you doing what you most enjoy?
 

If you are, good for you!  If not, why not?
