  1. Today, I prepared for workโ€ฆ.showed up in the driver’s seat of my carโ€ฆโ€ฆ.and thenโ€ฆwent nowhere. I had brought the wrong keys and locked the REAL keys in my houseโ€ฆwith the alarm on! I had to laugh. Then called my husband home from his job in a neighboring town. I spent 30 quality minutes with my dog, watching the storm from our open garage door. It was a truly lovely moment despite the unexpected nature of my situation.


    • Thank you for sharing Sharon. For me, the lesson I learned the most from was showing up and being present. I used to find myself skipping ahead to what’s next rather than being in that moment and being fully present. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Nice! And something more – the first one may not be needed! Yes, just improvise and don’t let over-preparation be a delay tactic. (Spoken from my own experience)


  3. For me Val, not just for today, for every moment in life. Incisive, insightful and practical – wisdom at it’s best. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you.


I'd love to hear from you ...
