A lesson from an UNsubscriber

February 12, 2009...

Recently, I had a subscriber to my weekly M.A.P. to Success Circle! newsletter UNsubscribe. That's not the way things are supposed to work. What's supposed to happen is that each reader finds a valuable nugget, and then forwards the newsletter on to others who might benefit as well.

But again...it didn't work like that.

A Bee's Sting

February 2, 2009...

Have you ever been stung by a bee?

Those of us that have definitely know that this little insect can certainly carry quite the big-time "OUCH!". I was reminded today of that ouch feeling. Except it wasn't a bee. And it wasn't physical.

It was a mental sting.

UNwritten....

January 22, 2009...

I'm one of those people that have a hard time focusing on the lyrics of entire songs. I start out listening to the words closely, but it seems before long, I am captivated by an idea or phrase sparked by the singer. It happened recently.

I was listening to a song by Natasha Bedingfield called Unwritten. I can't even begin to tell you what the song is about, but I can tell you that single word sent my brain spinning.

"Unwritten." 

My "Best Self."

December 23, 2008...

Of course, we all know 'tis the season of cheer and goodwill. It's that special two week period each year when we bring out our "best self" to life's party. We give presents. We send cards out by the dozens to people we rarely talk to during the year. We smile bigger, greet people more happily, and occasionally can even be seen wearing that silly red and white Santa cap.

But unfortunately, once the decorations come down, it seems like our "best self" gets boxed away, too.

C-o-l-d before h-o-t.

December 15, 2008...

Let me start off by saying that I am lucky. In fact, everyone who lives in southern California is lucky at this time of the year. Sure, our perfect weather is a "little-less perfect" right now...but "Whoa, Nelly!"...let's be realistic! When we see on the news what our friends in other places of this great big country are experiencing, then we need to count our blessings.

But still, I want to write about being c-o-l-d.

"OUCH!"
