16 Sep 2010 Movie Night…with a twist.
 |  Category: Uncategorized  | Leave a Comment


I took the LCD projector I use for speaking engagements & projected it on the back of the house for our own personal outdoor movie night.  The little hassle getting it all set up was really worth it…Gave movie night a special twist.  

Would love to hear about things to do to give ordinary events a special twist…always looking for something new and fun to do.

11 Sep 2010 Breakfast in Bed

This is the 2nd time this year I made myself breakfast in bed.  The first was for my 50th birthday in January.  A friend of mine commented at that time that that is pretty much counter to the entire idea of breakfast in bed…someone else should have made the breakfast for me.  I told him, “I meet my own needs..I am a 21st century woman:)”.  I wanted breakfast in bed and I made it.  It’s that simple.

I do have to say, this was a lesson that was hard learned during this journey called life.  I used to look to others to give me what I wanted/needed.  That is totally disempowering, yet it’s what society encourages us to do…look to others to complete us, blame others for not doing/saying/being.  I gave that up and it was the greatest gift I have ever given myself.  I took my power back and look to only me to meet my needs.  And life got infinitely easier & oh so peace-filled. 

If you’ve never made your own breakfast in bed, give it a whirl!
