I am Tired!

I know I said I would share my thanksgiving day with you, but I am tired. It has been an exhausting day, and I would like to share it with you, but I will wait until tomorrow to do it justice.

For you, it means you get two blogs from me. The first, I will share my day, and the second will be something I hope will benefit you.

I am so tired, and I am going to call it a night. Until tomorrow, stay safe, and keep the faith.

Show Up

Showing up is the key to success. You must know what you want and go after it. Participate fully in life. Be determined to be ready when opportunity knocks.

Remember your purpose—practice self-discipline. Even if you are tired or down in the dumps, commit to staying on track. Stir up your motivation by focusing on the reason behind your actions. Savor the satisfaction that you feel when you do a job well.

Manage your time. Set priorities so you can attend to the activities that matter to you.

Put forth effort. Give yourself credit for your hard work regardless of the results. Regard yourself as a winner as long as you keep practicing.

Create momentum. Taking the first step makes it easier to take the next one. You must persist through obstacles and delays.

Showing up gives you a chance to move on to more incredible victories.

Hold yourself accountable. Please take responsibility for your choices and the way you respond to challenges. It would help if you refused to put things off. Plan and stay on top of your to-do list. Pile up accomplishments instead of excuses.

Today, let the world know that it can count you in. You master the art of showing up.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How do you define showing up?

2. How does showing up help you to discover more opportunities?

3. What is one area of your life where you want to show up more fully?

Share your answers in the comments area. Until later, stay safe, and keep the faith.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I am cooking my Thanksgiving Meal. I enjoy cooking for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, and Easter. Right now, the smell of turkey is filling my home.

I am not going to write anything now. I wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to you before I get so involved with my cooking and enjoyment of my meal that I would forget.

I will write later about how my day is going and an article. I have not decided what that article will be. I will write the article first.

Well, back to my cooking. If you celebrate Thanksgiving, then have a special happy day, and if not, think about things you have to be thankful for in your life. Until later, have a wonderfully HAPPY THANKSGIVING! But remember, enjoy family and friends, stay safe, and keep the faith.
