You don’t have to like everyone…

October 31, 2012 | Posted in General | By

Oh my gosh… have you ever felt really bad about not liking someone or their personality? Or even worse, felt badly because someone didn’t like you? I hear people all the time trying to justify why they don’t like a person, trying to convince themselves that they are not bad people for disliking another human. It is perfectly natural and normal to dislike some people. Maybe someone gossips at the office and you don’t want to hear it, or someone is constantly rude and burps in the lunchroom; you don’t have to like everyone! You should however be respectful of other humans and treat them kindly. Just because you don’t like someone doesn’t mean you should insult them, call them names or hurt their feelings. We don’t have to get along with everyone, but we do have to maintain civility. Set a good example by living with integrity and treating everyone with kindness and compassion, even those you don’t like. Today, acknowledge that your feelings are valid, that you are not a bad person for disliking someone, treat everyone with kindness, take a deep breath and Live Inspired Now!

Halloween at home…

October 30, 2012 | Posted in General | By

We are planning a non trick or treating Halloween for tomorrow night! The kids are all older now and in the aftermath of the hurricane, we just think it would be better to hang at home and have some family fun! I bought plenty of candy and have assigned a “party planning committee” to plan the low key fun! Carrie and Ethan will make decorations, Mattie will pick a kid friendly scary movie and Harry can dole out the candy! Thad and I will make a yummy dinner and the kids have the option to dress up or not. Halloween trick or treating is always fun but this year there will be no complaining about the cold or the long walk, just a quiet and fun night at home with the family! So this year, try planning a Halloween at home, no tricks, just treats, movies, family fun and Live Inspired Now!

Be safe…

October 29, 2012 | Posted in General | By

Here on the East coast, we are bracing for a Halloween storm! Hurricane Sandy is heading our way and we are ready! Don’t panic, just be prepared. Panic won’t help, nor will it ease the storm so why stress yourself and others out. Make sure you have what you need; water, candles, generator, non-perishable food and lots of fun time activities for the kids. The world has seen storms for as long as it has existed and while it is scary sometimes, we are not in control. Mother nature will do what she wants and the best we can do is to be prepared, stay POSITIVE, help our neighbors and Live Inspired Now!

Pumpkin painting!

October 28, 2012 | Posted in General | By

I love all things that have to do with Fall! Last night Thad and I took the kids to a haunted corn maze. Harry and I stayed back while Thad took Mattie and Ethan through the maze. Harry and I had so much fun watching the people nervously waiting in line and we ran around the farm taking “spooky” pictures and even made a silly “Blair Witch” style video. Thad, Mattie and Ethan were “terrified” in the haunted maze while being chased by ghosts and goblins! We all had such a great time and today the fun continues with pumpkin painting! We love to paint instead of carving, it is a little easier and you can be super creative with a variety of paint colors! So today, have some Fall fun with creative pumpkin painting and Live Inspired Now!

Stories from Grandpa…

October 27, 2012 | Posted in General | By

Thad and I are lucky enough to have 3 sets of parents; his, mine and ours. “Ours” is the older couple who live across the street. They truly consider Thad as their third son and graciously welcomed me as their daughter in law when Thad and I got married. EJ (dad) was over this morning for coffee before he and Thad get busy on our home construction project. While EJ was here, he regaled us with stories from his youth. He told us about scuffles at the local bar and where everything used to be located. He shared stories about him and Pat (mom) dating and where they used to go. I think I could have sat there for hours listening, it was nice to get a glimpse of a time we would never have known about. Stories are the only way people had to communicate hundreds of years ago, these days we have a million options to convey a story but I still think the best way is to listen. So today, talk to your parents, grandparents or even and older person that is close to you. They have some amazing stories if you will take the time to ask about them. Listen, learn, enjoy the time spent with an elder and Live Inspired Now!
