Monday morning we decided to take a family vacation that we wanted to do for years but haven’t taken the time to plan it out. We found out some family from MN were going to go on the vacation we wanted to do and we decided in less then a day to pack and hit the road! We left Monday evening in the middle of a snow storm and drove strait through the night. We finally reached our destination at about 1 pm Tuesday! Colorado visiting family is the best medicine, when you are sick of snow storms! My kids got to climb their first mountain! They ran up and down it, they are just a ball of energy! After a couple days we left one family members house to visit another 2 hours away from the first one! We spent all day today riding horses! My kids and I were in heaven, we love horses! I am so thankful that we were able to just take off at the drop of a hat and spend quality time with family in another state! Anyway I need to get back to hanging out with my Colorado family so you all have a wonderful day!

This past week has been a pretty emotional one for me, so I find it fitting to switch scrolls and wow, bam it is on emotions! I have always thought of myself as not being a very emotional person, some have even called me cold hearted, since I would hold everything in and not show any emotion that I cared! But it seems that this is not the case anymore, I have been a lot more open with my emotions lately! Showing different sides of myself with different emotions and moods. “All nature is a circle of moods and I am a part of nature and so, like the tides, my moods will rise; my moods will fall.” Slowly mastering my emotions so every day can be a happy day! I am learning the secret of the ages “Weak is he who permits his thoughts to control his actions; strong is he who forces his actions to control his thoughts. I will follow this battle plan before I am captured by the forces of sadness, self-pity and failure
If I feel depressed I will sing.
If I feel sad I will laugh.
If I feel ill I will double my labor.
If I feel fear I will plunge ahead.
If I feel inferior I will wear new garments.
If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice.
If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come.
If I feel incompetent I will remember past success.
If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals.
Today I will be master of my emotions.”

This week I have spent a lot of time with my kids, they had Monday and Tuesday off of school, and Thursday (today) I went on a field trip down hill skiing with my oldest son! We had a lot of fun together today! Even his teacher said how lucky I was that he spent the whole day with me going on the chair lifts together and then following each other down the hills! She said when she went on a field trip with her son he ditched her for his friends! It really did make me reflect how lucky I am….. I am lucky he wanted me to go with him, I am lucky he wanted to spend the whole day by my side, I am lucky I have the time freedom to go with him when he asks, I am just lucky or I prefer the term BLESSED! This month we are reading about living each day as if it is our last, and today I lived it! If this would have been my last day, I got the privilege of spending it focused on my son, and what makes him smile at me, so happy I got to spend time with him (one on one, I have 4 kids so they don’t get much one on one time)! I truly enjoy spending time with my family! I am Blessed that I have the freedom to choose what I do with my time, but with choice comes responsibility to prioritize, I do need to stay focused or I will loose sight of why I do what I do! I need to keep chipping away that cement that is holding me back from stepping out into my full potential! I know I was meant for greatness, so watch out world I am stepping out of my comfort zone to meet you!!

This week Mark talked about the Dash! The dash doesn’t seem like a big thing but it is huge! What does your dash represent? Our time line consists of the date we were born the dash and the date we die! So the dash represents everything in the middle! What did you accomplish on your dash? What will you be remembered for? Those are some powerful questions! If we truly live each day as our last, what do you want to accomplish? What does your last day look like! Are you happy, satisfied with your live? Is it filled with regret, or possibly fear? We have the ability to choose our outcome! They say you can fake it until you make it! I prefer Fake it until you become it! Use the power pose! I am wonder woman!! Not sure if I have this right but I do like it so… Our bodies can change our mind, our mind can change our outcome, our outcome can change our lives! So fake it until you become it!!!!

What would the person I intend to become do next?
WOW, that is a loaded question!! What would the person I intend to become do next? Life is definitely full of ups and downs, twists and turns, this path or that one! Always wondering if you made the right choice, what will my future hold?? These are all good and what most consider normal questions……but what we should be asking is “What would the person I intend to become do next?” If we really key into that question, all the rest falls into place, I can see what path I should take, I know I made the right choice! When I have a definite end in mind, I can see the path, I can see the future! I spent so many years just going through the motions of life, I didn’t have a goal or definite purpose, end game in mind! Day in day out same old same old, NO more, no more indecisiveness, no more lack of gratitude, no more opinions, NO MORE old Brenda! I am Focused, Kind, “I am Whole, Perfect, Strong, Powerful, Harmonious, and Happy!”
I have the lamp and I know how to rub it -with ENTHUSIASM!

This week has been crazy busy! I have been making preparations for my trip to Miami FL, there is so much that needs to get done before a trip, but so much of it can’t be done until the night before! It is a little game of hurry up and wait! That reminds me of the journey of life, we rush through things, hurry hurry don’t be late, and then wait, wait for the next big thing, wait for the next catch of the day, wait for the next big opportunity! As I sit here thinking about my journey, I am so grateful for all the Blessings I have in my life! I am grateful for the opportunity to go to FL for a conference! Grateful for a loving family that will wait for me to come home, all excited for the opportunities that lie ahead of me! This course has taught me about patience, kindness, forgiveness, and to embrace change! Change can be such a wonderful thing! (I have learned so much more in this course but listed a few examples) Thank you so much for everything you do! I know you are making someone’s life just a little brighter today!! Have a fantastic day!
