What does Friday mean to YOU?

Have you ever said to your family,  Hey its Friday! What are we doing tonight?

Some people make plans because they just cashed their weekly paycheck and have this need to spend it frivolously.  Others attempt to rush home but end up sitting anxiously in rush hour traffic just to get home to order out and sit in front of the tv and do nothing.

How about tonight, lets transform the familys monotony and declare Friday to be Family Friday! See it as a date night for the entire family.  Heck, if Friday doesn't work then choose another day but have that one day of the week that is a day just for the family. 
On this day, cell phones are put away, tv is off and your family simply chooses to do something unique on this day.  You can accomplish many things in just one hour with your family. Its not about the number of minutes that you are giving them but rather its about the quality of time that you are engaged during those minutes.   Here is the key, you must name this day after the familly.  ie. Smith Family Day.  This will create both a tradition in the family but it will also be a day in which everyone looks forward to. 

Dont just yea we should do that.  Set a date with the family and pick an activity in which everyone participates in putting it together.  Make it fun, be you and be proud of for the family you are blessed to have. 

Are you Getting Weller on this beautiful Friday? 

No matter what is happening or not happening in your life today you can hit the rewind button and change you attitude right now!  Give you family the Gift of you tonight!!!

Change Starts with you

Are you living the Dream or setting Goals?

Tired of people telling you to set goals? To be honest, so am I!  I think if we place our attention on the dream, it sows the right seeds by naturally creating action steps to attaining it. 
Lets be real!  Take a step back and look at your life.  Happy?  Are you living the dream?  I think we must be honest with ourselves and realize what is robbing your clock.  Most of us at one time or another have had a bad relationship, poor diet, negative attitude and the most important one forgetting to keep God in your center. 

Think of food and people in your life the same way.  If you eat something, it should be a food that is going to build your body strong.  Just like people.  If you have someone or many people in your life that are emotionally draining, then they are tearing you down instead of building you up.
One of the hardest things in life is to simply say, No. 

How much time are you spending pleasing others and in turn, resenting that person when you are done doing what they asked of you?  If you spend time doing things that are not affiliated with your dream, then it will only exhaust you causing you to have a life of not enough.

Often times, we get caught up in comparing ourselves to someone else.  Especially when it comes to money.  We worry too much about what we cant do or what others think will keep us from being the incredible person that we are.
       Affirm yourself with and talk about the things to people that are part of your dream.  Two things will occur:

                        1. You will be instantly held accountable to your word

                        2. You will start to attract the right people to help you attain your dream

                    "If you are a mess on the outside, odds are you are a mess on the inside as well"
                     says Dr. Eddie Weller, CEO/Founder of Getting Weller & Upper Cervical

Being disorganized or having clutter in your home can and will drain your energy.  So CREATE the space you have always desired

       Clear - the clutter by first making a note of what you need to focus on when you first enter your home.  See what either frustrates you or what you avoid daily. 

       Restore - your home by giving everything a home.  By giving everything a storage place will plant the psychological seed that it is not that hard.

       Erase - the memory of what you dont want and make a short daily to-do list, 1-3 things and get it done.  It is very much attainable in a short time frame.

       Action is the key to getting your home under control.  Simply set a timer for 20 minutes and go, go, go! Divide a big pile of stuff into smaller containers. A few small sorts are easier than one big one.

       Treat - your home like a hotel.  Being that everything in your home has a purpose and is intentional.  If it is not relevant in your life, then give it away. 

       Entertaining - guests frequently is another great way to keep your house organized and clutter free.  Doing this will make you proud of your home and what you have accomplished to make it a place to where people that you care about can enjoy themselves.

                                 “A Dream without action is just a wish.  - Dr. Weller

The bottom line:  You can do this!  Close your eyes and believe it, see it and soon you will be living your dream.

“Keep On Keeping On!” 

We are living life as if we are human-doings rather than being a human-being.  I dont know about you but wow do I feel like giving up.

Well, that is how I used to feel.  Today, I fight daily to stay strong to maintain my mental toughness and to just keep moving forward in life.  But lets be honest, we are not hear to read about a pity party, I would rather share some of my little secrets of how I play my lifes game.

       I fit my husband in to my schedule. Yes, I have to be the crazy person and get up a little early, but he is my strength. I have to get time in with him, because together we are strong.

       I have a short list of No matter whats.” These are things that must get done daily
       I read great books.  I love motivational books that keep me on my path.
       I reach out to many advocates in my life and stay away from adversaries.
       I get my workout in even when I dont want to.
       I work first on the thing I want to do the least. I save the excitement for last.
       I continually work saying No.
       I never let go of my dreams.  If I do, I will remain a human-doing for the rest of my life.

The point of this blog is not to compare yourself to me or any of the others moms or dads in society.  It is about you and what you can do to add to your life.  What you can do to " Keep on Keeping on".  LET GO of what you have not done and FOCUS and what you have done.  Look forward to what is coming if you add just a little pep in your step daily! 
John Wooden said it best: Make everyday a masterpiece.
Moving forward in life comes from always being on purpose.  Stay on course and never let go of your why in life!
