It seems like I just looked at the calendar and it was Monday, and now after a couple of blinks it’s Friday.

I’m definitely down off the high, but I’m running at a lightening speed.

It’s the most amazing thing to have clients happy to respond, willing to meet, looking forward to spending time.  This hasn’t been my experience over the last 5 years of my career.

Have I changed?  I think I have.

Has my practice of gratitude been a factor?  Maybe so.  Maybe that is what changed me so that I can receive better things.

Maybe I just made a decision that this time, I would do things differently?

I’m not sure.

I’m very grateful today for the 16 months that made such a difference in my life.

So, I leave you with a little Emerson.



Fantastic Friday

What a week.  What a wonderful week.

I can’t wipe the smile off my face.  It’s been an amazing awakening, deepening knowledge, and affirmation that our office completely Rocks.

My last job left me fired, unsure, unsettled, disillusioned….wrecked upon the rocks and convinced I wouldn’t go back.

The first three weeks my my new job?

I’m encouraged, empowered, celebrated, and clients are seeking me out.

My initial calls were with raving fans who hug me when I go, now new friends to enjoy.  I ended the week with my first new client sending a loan, and two more asking for applications and meetings.  I’m humbled and amazed.

My gratitude is overflowing.  The blessing in my life are chasing me down and leaving me breathless.

I went in the office today to bring in the “love offerings” a grateful clientele had me carry for them.  Cards, candy, goodies in baskets, notes, and 3 hug requests for various members of the team.

In my “magic” bag of offerings, I had a special gift for one of our team members who goes above and beyond.  I brought her a Tiarra, as she is the Queen of a particular client document.  When I presented her with her Crown, she got big tears in her eyes.  She gave me a big hug, and a thank you.  She needed encouragement, and my little $20 Tiarra made her day.

The notes, scans of the cards, candy, et al were all passed out.  It was the best experience I’ve had in a long time.

The momentum I feel gathering is amazing.  I am a rocket ready to explode into space, discover distant planets, and cure all the ills of mankind.  Well….at least I think I need a cape or something to cover me when the bad days come. 😊

It’s a great feeling to know that things are good, my Clients like me, and I have an awesome team at my back.

This week has been kind to me, encouraged me, and I am grateful.

Cheers to a great weekend!

Sunday Morning Gratitude

The weather has cooled a bit.

The sun has mellowed.

Today I am grateful for time to reflect, a clean house, awesome message at church, and my first paycheck in 18 months.

I’m very grateful to be employed.
