This time of year many people stop to show their gratitude or thankfulness towards something or someone in their lives. Sometime we are thankful but never really voice it.  But this year let's switch it!  Let's put a voice to our THANKFULNESS.  It's one thing to be thankful but another thing to be on the receiving side of it!  So this holiday season make sure you stop to tell those in your life that you're thankful for them.  They may need to hear it! 

Who are you thankful for in your life?

Is it October ALREADY?

How did October 1st get here so quickly?  As excited I am for fall and all the celebrations and holidays that this season can bring, one more week of beach like weather would have been glorious.  As I sit here at the dining room table the clock read 7:30am, I’m in my bath robe, you can hear the roars of the TV playing Pixar’s animated movie Cars, the tea kettle is vaguely whistling in the background and all I can think of is…IT’S OCTOBER…ARE YOU SERIOUS…OCTOBER ALREADY!

Are you like me, concerned that the holidays are really just around the corner and you still have so much to do?  All those projects that you had planned to do earlier in the year are STILL not finished.  What am I talking about?  Not finished…more like not even started!!
So here’s our chance to finish the year with VICTORY!!  Make a PLAN…Set a GOAL…Determine your INTENTION!  And GET’ER DONE! 

So what are your PLANS?  What are your GOALS and how high are you setting your INTENTION?

We have had so many ant problems this summer.  I know today is the FIRST day of autumn but the ants are still alive and well.  I’ve gone as far as hiring a PEST Control company, but the ants are relentless.  I don’t handle it well either.  I woke up this morning and the kitchen sink was crawling with them.  I instantly started to shout and moan about it.  Meanwhile my 21 month old son is watching my REACTION from a distance.  I suddenly become overwhelmed with frustration seeing the mess that crawled before me.  I broke down and began weeping. 

After the ants were all cleaned up, sink emptied and dried off I heard my toddler getting frustrated.  I walked into the living room and I saw him getting upset because the car he had in hand would not fit into this box that was sitting in front of him.  I kindly leaned over and turn the car onto its side and gently slid it into the box.  He looked up at me and smiled!  I turned around and began to walk away and suddenly heard him start up again BUT this time he’s was fired up!   He just couldn’t figure out how to get that car into the box.  He began to cry and threw the car and kicked the box.  I’m beside myself because I had never seen him do that before! 
Then the light went on in my head!  Mommy taught him how to deal with the ANTS!  She taught him that kicking, shouting and crying were A WAY to deal with frustration.  The car and the box were his ANTS! 

What are you teaching through your actions?  What are your ANTS?  This weekend as you’re with friends and family remember the ANTS and choose wisely!

Is CHANGE on your LIKE list?

CHANGE is funny.  Sometimes when the CHANGE is in our favor we’re ALL about it.  We LIKE it!  We post about it on our FB page.  In our conversations around town we boast about how we enjoy CHANGE and how it’s good for us.  BUT…when it’s not in our favor we suddenly despise it.  We complain about it, we post, “CHANGE SUCKS”! 

But why does CHANGE affect us so adversely?  CHANGE rewrites our plans.  Our schedules and direction get knocked off its kilter.  So CHANGE means WE have to CHANGE, ADAPT and SHIFT!!   Sometimes having to CHANGE ourselves, rocks our world. 

CHANGE in life means we have to CHANGE! 

When CHANGE comes ADAPT, MODIFY, REFINE yourself because in the end it will only make you a better, more complete version of you!

AOK Acts of Kindness

This morning while still half asleep I decided to open my email.  I received an email from my elderly neighbor.  He said that the other day he fell in the middle of the night and broke his foot in multiple places.  Since the fall his wife has had her hands full regarding house work and caring for him.  I was beside myself that he waited almost a week to tell me.  I popped up out of bed and started cooking pancakes, eggs, sausage and brewing coffee.  My husband and I quickly got dressed, platted the food and walked over with a piping hot breakfast for two.  His wife opened the door and was so surprised. 

How many times do we purposely do ‘Acts of Kindness’?  Are our lives so busy and jam packed with work, meetings, doctor’s appointments, errands, ballet classes, t-ball games, bible studies, church, etc… that we have lost sight of KINDNESS?  I am notorious for getting bothered with the driver who cuts me off or the lady in the 10 items or less line with a cart full of groceries.  Yet how much more energy do we expend when we CHOOSE KINDNESS over frustration, my guess is, not much more… if any. 

When was the last time someone extended ‘Acts of Kindness’ to you?  How did it make you feel?  Maybe it’s time for more of us to extend KINDNESS.  What will you do next?

Coach or Referee?

Not so long ago I was having a conversation with my brother.  And he was sharing with me a situation he was having at work.  And in the midst of the situation he said, “A still small voice said…ARE YOU A COACH OR A REFEREE?”  He said he was dumbfounded.  We soon finished our conversation and that stayed with me all day!  Am I a coach or a referee?  Do I see things and encourage on how to make things better as a coach would or do I like a referee keep my eyes peeled to find the errors and faults.

So it is to you…are you a coach or a referee?

The Beauty Of A Woman

The beauty of a woman
isn't in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman
must be seen from in her eyes;
Because that's the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman
isn't in a facial mole;
But true beauty in a woman,
is reflected by her soul.

It's the caring that she cares to give,
the passion that she shows;
And the beauty of a woman
with passing years only grows

What Are You Sitting On?

Do you sit daydreaming about going back to school to get your degree?  Do you picture yourself writing a bestselling book?  Do you fantasize about starting a business or picking up an amazing hobby?  I’m sure there are things that you’ve dreamt of doing and just never got around to doing it.  You know those things that you’re good at YET never have time to really dive into.  You know exactly what I’m talking about.  You know that hidden talent that everyone of your friends and family brag about.  You hear the comments all the time like:  “Wow, your cakes and cookies are amazing!  You should open your own bakery”!  Or “You’re SO great with kids!  You should be a teacher”!  Or “You’re voice is beautiful!  You should be a professional singer”!  Or “Geez, you are a wiz at computers you should get into gaming, programing, consulting and stuff”!  I can go on and on.  You know exactly the area that you are gifted in BUT…

The excuses are in plentiful supply.  You can list your excuses in alphabetical order.  Yet the all those excuses are just that, excuses.  The only thing that’s holding you back is YOU!  It’s not time!  It’s not money!  It’s not the lack of support!  IT’S YOU!!  You stand in the way of you the majority of the time.  And how is it working for you?  Still no books written, still no restaurant opened, no degree hanging on your wall, no classroom full of eager learners and so on and so on.  I know these excuses oh TOO WELL!  I am the QUEEN of the “ME Barrier”. 

So what are you sitting on?  What talents are you great at yet haven’t stepped into?  I’d love to know what talents you’re sitting on!

Quote for the Week

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond mesaure. It is our light not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?" Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You were born to manifest the glory of God that is within you."~Nelson Mandela

~A Glance at Hephzi's Vintage Dreams Collection~

Did you know that Hephzi's bracelets can also be worn as a necklace,

 can be worn around a hat,

can be worn as a headband, belt, and an anklet. 
All by purchasing the cordinating extender.  Soon, all of Hephzi's bracelets will automatically come with a necklace extender, which will allow you to wear as a bracelet or necklace!  2 in 1

Sometimes and outfit will call for a bracelet and others a necklace.  This is a glorious way to use a signature piece that has many functions!

To all you Hephzi's out there continue to be unique, with one of a kind jewelry pieces from Hephzi Creations!!!  xoxo
