Less Bark More Wag-Live Your Best Life

Lily swing

Animals provide tremendous insight into everyday living.  In the spirit of sharing wisdom from a “best friend” perspective…this guest post is by My Best Friend’s Dog, Lily.  

Yup, you read that right.  Lily is a DOG… and she consistently Delivers Observable Goodness in her petite Bichon-Shiatzu frame. Lily is smart, sensitive, sometimes sassy and a super hero of sorts.

Lily’s Full Disclosure
“This is new for me – a bit of a stretch – to share personal thoughts and experiences in human speak. I’m excited to take the leap and give it my best. With that…let’s get started.”

Showing up matters – being authentic
For some reason people make such a fuss when I’m out and about town. They stop, point, start oohing, ahhing and then the cameras come out. I’m not kidding!  You’d think I was a rock star on tour.  Shutters start clicking while I’m at the bank, relaxing on the beach, letting the wind blew through my hair, blissing out on my favorite chair, and even waking up in the morning. (You’ll see some photographic evidence.)

2.  Be Playful

Creative ideas show-up when there’s ”free” time – time for fun. When we take off adult glasses and see things through the eyes of a child – we get to experience a world that’s more fun and playful.

3.  Be Resilient

You have within you … the ability to bounce back and recover (just like this soap bubble) from outcomes that are different than you expected.   Creativity prevails.

It’s Happening Again

It’s Happening Again…

Emerge-ecardThe past several weeks have been ordinary in an extra-ordinary way.  I feel happier and more excited about everyday kind of things…exercising, preparing new dinner recipes, the direction of my business and enjoying TV as well as relaxing in the evening with a good book.  All very ordinary kind of things.  

Yet, there is something else going on.  A new me is growing and emerging. (Reminds me of one of my Flashcards for the Soul (TM) – each tiny red leaf in this Emerge image was smaller than my pinkie fingernail and  yet the leaves emerge through a thick layer of pine needles.)

As for the new me, I’m breaking through, growing and magnetizing exciting opportunities, again – much like a seven-year stretch between 1999-2006.  During the seven years it was a common occurrence to quickly attract exhilarating opportunities, projects, and leisurely travel.  Then, the synchronicities slowed down.
