FOCUS doesn’t just happen with your eyes!

      Focus is a word we take much too lightly! It’s what we focus on in life that moves us in a particular direction. If there is a problem, past or present, we need to focus on that problem or challenge, not the challenge or imagined “what if’s” that are surrounding it. Next, focus on what you can learn from that problem. That sounds kind of strange doesn’t it? Well unless we understand what the problem is, we’ll never be able to move past it! Shift your focus for a moment past that problem and actually feel how satisfying and wonderful it will feel once you succeed and get past it! Ask questions of yourself and of others and focus on their answers so you can learn. (When you focus and ask questions, you grow wiser.) Just like we need contact with other humans, we also need private time. Give yourself the gift of time so you can focus on what is important in your life, even if it’s 2 or 3 minutes. Focusing on relaxation is something you deserve!!! Don’t ever let others or yourself make you feel bad for allowing yourself the time to build a better you. Finally, human beings come “pre-wired” to be happy, it’s how we’re born. During our lives, we find every way possible to be negative but under it all, gratitude, & happiness is there waiting whenever we’re done ignoring them. This is where our focus needs to continually be trained on. Focusing on the positives, no matter how big or small will lead you to a direction that holds more positives and more successes.

Happy Thanksgiving…or is it?

What a great time of the year. The weather cools while the family gathers around. Each Thanksgiving we marvel at the amount of food on the table in front of us and are grateful for the love that is all around us. So, yes… HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Or is it? Thanksgiving is supposed to be what I just described but for so many, that isn’t the case. We throw the greeting around without thinking about those we meet and talk to, especially our friends. “HAPPY Thanksgiving! Are you going to have a big get together at your place this year?” The only problem with that is that many won’t be having a Happy Thanksgiving or a get together surrounded by friends and family.

While many of us will be trying to figure out how to fit all the food on the table, many, many others, yes…even some of your friends that you would never imagine, have little or no food. Imagine instead of turkey, looking in a mostly bare refrigerator and deciding between what’s left of the bologna or a can of soup. Sounds like I’m overstating it? I’m not.
