Happy New Year 2021!

Posted on January 11, 2021 at 6:38 PM Comments comments (0)
The New Year is upon us!  2020 was a very challenging year for us all. It was life changing in so many ways. It tested us all on so many levels. My hope is the Pandemic comes to an end and there is peace and calm in our country. Let’s leap into this New Year with positive energy and clearly defined goals.

I had the opportunity to write my goals at my villa in Playa. My husband knows how much I love writing and relaxing on our balcony. Whenever I am by the ocean I find a clear vision for my future. Take the time to refocus on what is most important to you and how you plan on creating a fulfilling and successful year.
Make 2021 an AWESOME YEAR!!!!!

FOCUS: The #1 Mindfulness Habit to Survive Corona Crisis

Posted on April 13, 2020 at 4:52 PM Comments comments (0)
This new year brought a host of unprecedented health and economic issues that many people were unprepared for and yet, the pandemic we are all experiencing also comes with a host of opportunities that can help us change our personal and professional lives for the better.

Self-quarantines and social distancing have given us “the gift of time” to start making proactive changes in our health, life style, financial planning, and businesses.  This is a time for us to become more productive rather than fall deeper into procrastination.  It is a time for us to make progress and move forward with our goals, rather than become paralyzed and freeze in our own tracks.  We can choose to become our own worst enemies and cripple ourselves into complete fear of not knowing what the future holds, or we can choose to be our own best friends by preparing for the unknown. 

“Focus” is the #1 mindfulness habit that will help you become more proactive on the things in your life that you can and want to change:

Find Your Strengths
Observe your mentors
Challenge yourself to continue to grow and get out of your comfort zone
Utilize all your talents, skills, and resources to the fullest extent possible
Stick with it and strive to make a difference.

Learn from past mistakes.  Forgive yourself and one another.  Follow your destiny.

Ease Your Soul

Posted on April 13, 2020 at 4:47 PM Comments comments (0)
In these challenging times of the Coronavirus, social distancing and quarantining, it is important to find uplifting things that will help ease the soul. Here are a few of the things I have been applying into my daily ritual:

1) I listen to positive pod-casts and have enrolled in on-line self-development programs.

2) Work-out, this is a great way to keep in shape during this #stayhomemn. You will feel better after an intense workout and yes look great as well.

3) Reach out to family and friends, talk about how you are feeling, and encourage open conversation. Many people are feeling very nervous with all the news of the death count, the spread of the virus, and the overall shutdown of the economy.

4) Meditate and practice relaxation techniques. The more you can balance your overall emotions the better.

5) Eat healthy, take vitamins and nutrients. The immune system needs to be at the top of the list along with washing our hands.

This difficult time will pass sometime soon. In the meantime, be good to yourself and to others. I hope one day we all will look back on this “Global Pandemic of 2020” and realize we not only made it through but we are much better people because of it.

Opportunity & Optimism for Goal-Achievement 2019

Posted on January 22, 2019 at 3:13 PM Comments comments (0)
There are people in this life who always seem to be in the right place at the right time.   Knowing yourself and making a conscious effort to push forward, you can create your own opportunities in 2019 or find ones that fit what you’re looking for too.

Anything you do should come out of a sense of who you are.  Ask those closest to you to answer the following question: What am I naturally good at?

By projecting confidence, you encourage others to view you as an expert in your skills. Use your confidence to step outside your comfort zone and engage people and situations that will help get you to where you want to be.  By putting yourself out there and meeting people who will support your dream, you’re more likely to create opportunities for yourself.  For instance, if you’re a storyteller at heart and have a passion for giving other people a voice, you might be able to use those skills in a corporate communications or marketing job that develops testimonials. 
Also, think of 2019 as a year to create good karma.  By creating lasting, solid relationships, people will remember you when an opportunity arises that requires your expertise.   Even if an opportunity doesn’t manifest immediately, have faith that something is on the horizon.  The amount of preparation you’ve done will equip you to know whether or not an opportunity is right for you.  

Every step in your journey happens for a reason and an optimistic outlook will help support you in achieving your goals.

Winter 2019 - Happy New Year!

Posted on January 22, 2019 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)
The New Year is upon us! This is the best time of the year to create and commit to our goals for the New Year.  While I was away for the holidays and sitting by the ocean, I found myself reflecting on some of my blessings of 2018, the birth of my grandson Logan, the adoption of my granddaughter Eden, watching my grandson Jax turn 3, my wonderful work projects, and overall family.  Giving Thanks for the year we are leaving behind is important as we set our goals for the New Year.  
I have many goals set but one that I want to share with you all is my focus on a “Positive Mental Attitude.” This has always been my strongest area of strength.  I plan on getting out into the community and volunteering more, giving motivational speeches, coaching others on how to live their best life by having a Positive Mental Attitude, working out daily, and taking time for my loved ones.  -  Make 2019 an AWESOME YEAR!!!!!  - Julie

Fall 2016

Posted on October 2, 2016 at 11:11 PM Comments comments (0)
Autumn is the season we normally think about going back to school, accomplishing our career goals, and looking for a strong finish towards the end of the year.  It is also the time of year that we must give thanks and express our gratitude for the many people who have helped us along the way towards achieving those goals and it is a time to count our many blessings.
This season, I am grateful to all my family and friends for supporting me in so many ways. Whether it has been volunteering to help serve on some kind of upcoming Spring Conference Toastmasters Committee, registering for my own class offerings, programs, and events, or simply getting together for some real quality “face to face” time to enjoy my life’s mantra of “Good Food!  Good Friends!  Good Fun!”  I am grateful for all those who have stepped forward to help, assist in any way they can, and who have been apart of my crazy, busy hectic life.
I have really come to appreciate my family, my husband, mom and dad, as well as the high quality people that have surrounded me and that I call my friends.  I am truly blessed to have great relationships with my business partners and associates and I am looking ahead to a prosperous new year.
It may start to get chilly outside but Autumn warms my heart.  THANK YOU!

Fall 2016

Posted on October 2, 2016 at 11:04 PM Comments comments (0)

"Autumn is an artist who uses an oak leaf on which to paint a masterpiece."  --- William Allen Ward
Fall is here, my favorite time of the year.  I love the wonderful colors, cool nights, bonfires, football, caramel apples, my Grandson Jaxon's Birthday....I could go on and on.
In the spring blog I talked of rebirth and rejuvenation. With the fall season, I look within and reevaluate where I am going and what needs to be let go of.  Just like the falling leaves, sometimes we need to let go of what is not working or no longer aligns with our true self. Once again I encourage you to walk in nature, stop, and reflect on the beautiful fall colors all the while giving thanks. ENJOY THIS WONDROUS SEASON !!
"Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the Fall." -   F. Scott Fitzgerald

Spring Cleaning

Posted on April 8, 2016 at 12:04 PM Comments comments (0)
It's time for Spring cleaning and getting things in order. There is house work, yard work, and also personal self work.

That's right! This is the perfect season to work on self.  This is the perfect season to find some sense of balance and harmony.

Take inventory of the people, activities, and things that enrich your life. Value those, treasure them, hold them dear and close, and show your appreciation.  Always count your blessings.  By contrast, take inventory of the things that subtract from your life and throw them out to make room for more fulfilling experiences and adventures.

If you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, perhaps you are surrounded by too much clutter. Get your house in order, your family in order, your business in order, and your health in order.  List the things that really matter and stay focused on achieving those goals that support your values and are aligned with your priorities.

Strive to make a difference in the lives of those people who matter to you most.
Prioritize your personal and professional development goals.
Refresh, renew, and rejuvenate yourself by getting things in order.
Inform, influence, and inspire others through both random and intentional acts of kindness.
Notice the unfinished things that require your attention and follow through on completing them.
Go after the things you desire!

Spring 2016

Posted on April 8, 2016 at 11:34 AM Comments comments (0)
Spring is here, a time of rebirth and new life!  I always  feel rejuvenated, revitalized, and refocused in the Spring.  As I talked about in my New Year Blog, "This is what new life and the new year is all about, the opportunity to begin again, to look at the world with fresh eyes and believe that anything is possible." This holds true for Spring.  Look around you and see the new buds blossoming and the green grass coming in.  We all have the opportunity to grow and blossom into our full potential. It is up to us.  Do we want to create the life of our dreams?
Start by reevaluating where you are in your personal and business life. What is working?  What needs to change?  Then, focus on where you want to be in a year from today. Revise where needed and recommit on what is working. Take time to walk in nature, if possible daily.  Allow your creative side to come through. You will be amazed on the clarity you get from being in nature and being in silence.
Spring has Sprung, this is the time to grow into the person needed to create the life you desire!!
"Spring is when life's alive in everything."   --Christina Rossetti
