is anyone else out there de-motivated by the "carrot" of making money? every time i think about what i "want", it rarely involves a dollar amount. i don't want a new car, a bigger house, expensive

The perfect gift. You give it. You receive it.You return it and exchange it all the time, not just during the holidays. It costs nothing, yet is priceless. You can never run out of it or get too much of it.

SMILE thought for today:

Grateful for Courage - Day #30

last day of november means the last day of focus on being grateful. it's been an interesting exercise in courage. as a matter of fact "courage" is the word i chose to actualize in my life for 2015. we all have to be courageous about something. what's easy for you might be hard for me and vice versa. that's why i don't judge someone else's journey. there are plenty of people out there that think my "smiling" message is trite bull sh_t.

most people would assume that because of my outgoing, confident personality, that i am somehow immune to fear and rejection. i'm no different from you. i just admit it more. i have to muster up the courage daily to go out and be my most giving, caring, honest, vulnerable, transparent, flawed, smiling self, even if it means some people won't like me and i don't have the biggest client list, bank account, house or wardrobe.

it takes courage to be me. it takes courage to be you. and we get to do it again every single day. :-))
