The BEST gift ever…

December 12, 2017 | Posted in Feel Good, General, Giving, Relationships | By

What’s the BEST gift ever???

It’s your enthusiasm for whatever your spouse is excited about! 

When was the last time your spouse came to you with an idea, thought, or project and you didn’t show enthusiasm?

In fact, you might have half-heartedly said “That’s nice.” with no excitement in your voice, no sparkle in your eye, and no concern in your heart for your partners feelings.

If you really want to give an awesome gift that they will never forget… GET FUCKING EXCITED!!! Yes, that required an F-bomb. 

This is one of the biggest complaints I hear… one spouse is excited about something and the other spouse is a complete buzz kill with their droll, lackluster response.

Come on now, SHOW SOME EXCITEMENT and watch how your spouse lights up!

They might even shower you with affection because they are so excited by your loving support!

It seems obvious when you read it, but in daily practice you might get a little lazy.

So right now, go let your partner know how freakin excited you are for them or with them about whatever “it” is!

As a reminder…. it’s only 13 days until Christmas!! Besides your over the top enthusiasm, you might want to purchase an autographed book….

Can I rock this?

October 24, 2017 | Posted in Family, Feel Good, Fun Stuff, General, Giving, Inspiration | By

Looking for something fun to do with your spouse, kids, or friends? Have a rock painting party!

Go on a long hike, gather rocks, bring them home and paint them with fun colors and inspirational words or sayings!

Then…. go leave them where people will discover them!

It brings such a smile to faces when they find a little rock treasure on their route!

You can’t imagine the fun you’ll have painting rocks. Personally, I find it very meditative and may be doing a “rock a day” as part of my “wake up and shake up” routine!

Try it! Send pix! And be sure to use the hashtags:  #inspirationrocks   or   #liveinspirednow

Awesome gift ideas for the “hard to buy for” people!!

December 6, 2016 | Posted in Challenges, Family, Feel Good, General, Giving, Inspiration | By

Thad wins in my house for giving the BEST gifts ever! I try really hard to compete, but most often fall short of his amazingness in gift giving! 🙂

With that in mind, I was thinking that maybe some of his ideas from the past would be great gift suggestions for YOU! Plus, I am going to throw in some of my suggestions as well!

So here you go, mine and Thad’s super spectacular, wow them to tears, gift giving ideas:

  • Box of date nights: Thad bought a shoe box sized plastic bin and filled it with date night tickets that he printed himself. There were enough to pick one date night ticket per week for an entire year and each ticket had a super fun date night activity. Some were obvious like dinner and a movie, but other activities were things like paper airplane competition, test drive a car, and cook a meal together. Be creative!!
  • The never ending Christmas: One year, my only Christmas wish was to not have Christmas end. Thad filled a large mason jar with love notes and put just one note in that said “You can open your last Christmas present.” I couldn’t open that last present until I found that one note and each day I got to open a note with a sweet, lovey message until I found the open your last gift. I left one of the Christmas trees up all year with that last present under it until I found the note. This was by far my favorite gift ever!!!
  • Put it in a book: Before I decided to publish my latest book “I Have a Guardian Angel” Thad had it printed and made into a book for me at a Kodak kiosk. You can take any pictures, love notes, or anything you can imagine and have them turned into a lovely keepsake book!
  • Something to look forward to: Buy tickets for several shows, plays, or events throughout the year so you have something to look forward to doing together!
  • Cook and serve a romantic meal at home: One year we couldn’t go out because we had no babysitter, so I set up a table and chairs in our bedroom and I served Thad a romantic candle lit meal. With the door locked and music on, it was like we were out of the house on a romantic date!
  • Gift card fun: Thad once gave me a bunch of gift cards (for small amounts) so we could go shopping together! I used them throughout the year here and there and Thad helped me pick stuff out! Be sure to add a note that says you get to have fun spending them together! (My cards were for Starbucks, Victoria Secrets, Target, and a few others!)
  • Build something: We’ve done a lot of building stuff. One year I took wooden crates (bought at the craft store) turned them sideways, added a shelf, put wheels on the bottom and painted them. I also painted the kids names on top and they were adorable little side tables! I added a flat Lego piece to the top of one for our son Ethan so he could build Lego worlds on top!
  • Make something: One year I created a cookbook for my daughter who was going to school for culinary arts. I decorated a 3 ring binder and added all of her favorite recipes that I cook, as well as some family recipes too!
  • Free wifi: This year my dad just got his first computer… an iPad. He’s learning how to use it but my parents didn’t have wifi so I got my dad some accessories including ear buds for his iPad and several Dunkin Donuts gift cards. He loves Dunkin Donuts and they are close to his house so I thought he could go there and buy a coffee and use their wifi while he practiced “inter-netting.” (Mom ended up getting wifi so now Dad will just have lots of free coffee. lol)
  • Money Money Money: My mom loves to give money and gift cards to the kids. One year, she taped 50 one dollar bills together and rolled them up. She cut a slit in a toilet paper tube and wrapped it up with the dollars inside so they could be pulled out of the slit like a money dispenser! Our son had fun pulling the money out and counting all the dollars!
  • Hidden treasures: My daughter Carrie loves to hide surprises for me to find! Wrap up a note that says “Your present is hidden in your office or room” and let the fun begin! Carrie always hides “1 free foot rub” coupons in my office! How lucky am I???
  • Remember when: Thad helped me remember an amazing time in Hawaii when he built me a serving tray and “tiled” it with black rocks like the rocks on the beach in Hawaii. Then he took white rocks and spelled out Thather, just like we had done, and he glued them over the black rocks. It was just like being back on the beach!

There are SOOOOOO many great ways to give gifts that don’t cost much but will be treasured forever! For those of you who would like to buy some things though, here are a few of my favorites:

These are just a few of my favorites. I would LOVE to hear what you think! Please post your greatest gift ideas in the comments!

I hope you come up with something great and always remember that YOU are the true gift!

Love and Inspiration,

Heather

Why do you do what you do?

May 17, 2016 | Posted in Challenges, General, Giving, Motivation, Personal Development, Videos | By


Have you ever thought about why you do what you do? Like what happened way back when, that made you who you are today?

A man once told me that because he grew up extremely poor, he was motivated to feed hungry people as an adult. A woman told me that as a teenager her friend gave her a beautiful sweater, one that she could never afford, she now is dedicated to providing clothes to underprivileged kids.

I have several core stories that explain who I am today and why I do what I do. In today’s video I share my story that shaped who I am today…. the time I kidnapped a classmate and brought her home to live with me!

I’d love to hear what story motivated you to become who you are today! Share your story in the comment box!

Spread the love, and live inspired now!

Love,

Heather
