It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas! The Holidays! Whatever you call it… to me its the most wonderful time of the year! People are kind, joyful, generous, smiling, pretty-all dressed up for those office parties, and family gatherings! There’s sumptuous food, Folly jolly chocolate delights, gifts and so much more! Yes, I know there’s always the Grinch but they’re just a few, so let’s not let them spoil it for us too.
The season kicks off with holiday music… and today I would love to share them all! Hey, I’m just kidding! I will just share 11 of my favs!

For it is in Giving that we receive
My personal joy is to give! I treasure any opportunity to give! The act of giving has always brought me even more satisfaction than the recipients of my gifts. These days being on a strict budget has brought with it the stance to be even more creative than I was in the past when giving high-priced gifts. I ran a search for gift ideas to still meet my giving needs to others. I pounced upon LiZ Evans Huffington Post’s article 20 Gifts That Cost Nothing To Make But Might Be Priceless. From the list my top 9 Favs are:

I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.”

It’s the season of giving! If you’re like me I just love to give! Thoughtful gifts not only makes the receiver happy, but it also warms my heart.
A colleague from the No Stress Workplace shared a simple list of things to do to be financially aware during the most stressful time of the year … the holidays! Here I share the 8 tips:
Have a family planning meeting on what gifts to give where you can cut back and create a budget together
Be creative and give meaningful gifts such as baked goods, a framed photo or make a gift card for a night of baby or dog sitting.
Instead of giving gifts save the money towards a family vacation
Don’t get lured into store super sales
Use only cash
Use a notebook or free app like mint.com to keep track of your spending
Stop dining out until after the holidays or bring your own coffee rather than stopping at Starbucks.
Find ways to save, clip coupons, compare prices, utilize free shipping and plan ahead.
As we reflect on these 8 gift ideas, I’ll also encourage you to give the gift that lasts a lifetime. Books on Success, personal development and coaching last beyond the holidays. Consider such meaning when you go on the hunt.
So does any of the ideas listed stand out that you could adopt? Any you can add? Do share! We would love to hear!
Don’t Waste Time Trying to Please People. -Stephen King.
Wanting to do their best work, new writers are naturally anxious. They ask questions. They probe. They Gorge. They sweat. It’s hoped they sweat while writing and not about how to start. Stephen King in his memoir titled “On Writing” stressed don’t waste time trying to please people. Indeed this is applicable in many situations as individuals attempt to develop their own Identity.

All you need to know is that it’s possible.
Success. We all strive for it. In talking to a group of new college grads as they contemplate the next steps in life, their dreams and goals differed. Common was the the ideal job, home ownership, beautiful car, marriage, and family to name a few.
But though Success means different things to different people, here are 7 determinants involved in the pursuit of success:
Of the 7, how many do you possess? Which are you best at? Which do you need to improve? Do share. We would love to hear.
For the months I carried you, growing inside of me...
For the months I carried you growing inside of me… Entrepreneurs know the travails of starting and growing a business. The challenges associated with carrying a business from incubation to reality. It’s no easy task.
Career transitions, college students, and goal seekers all know how difficult it is to carry the burden of studies to get to the finish line. It’s no easy task.
Parents know how difficult it is to bear the burden of the change in lifestyle as a newborn is expected. It’s no easy task.
Let’s not forget authors whose stories became known from a dream, to a thought, to a page, to a book. Published! It’s no easy task.
So it is with whatever we put our minds to. Whatever we decide to do from idea, thought, dream, goal… it is not going to be easy until it becomes a reality. Success involves dreaming; it involves planning; it involves hard work; it involves dedication, determination, commitment, and most of all resilience. Many are the athletes whose stories have been told of the journey that they had to embark on and overcome. Not only days, months but for many years, athletes stood the test of time to achieve their goal. They were able to achieve because they stuck to their dream.
Today whatever your dream is … don’t give up. Strive, put in the hard work; put in the dedication, put in what needs to be done, and your success is inevitable… however you define it.
Need help? Lets connect.
The dream became a reality.
