Y.I. Wednesday: Why I am Inspired by Yellow

So, what's the deal with Yellow Inspiration?
Well, Yellow is  inspiring to me, not just because it's my favorite color, 

it's sunny,

it's cheerful,

it's positive,

it glows,

it's the color of my first car,

it's the color of my new kitchen


it's been my favorite song 
for seven+ years


Yellow always makes me fell happy!


Today... buy, 
take a picture of,

Carpe diem

Something busy people forget to do.

This summer, don't forget to take some time to enjoy 
the grass beneath your feet and some music in the park.

Y.I. Wednesday: Why I Love this World Peace Poem

by Shel Silverstein

This is the sweetest poem, if you're interested in world peace...
Not just because it's written by my most favorite author when I was a kid, 
but because it's also the easiest to incorporate in your life.

Make it your goal to make someone smile and feel loved today...

Pass it on.

Y.I. Wednesday: Why I am Proud to Support America via Indivisible

While in Starbucks the other day, I did what anyone would do when they see a cause they believe in...
I put my money where my mouth is.

I am proud to be born in America. 

Black or white, free will, freedom of religion and freedom of speech, I love America,
 and believe we have the drive, the passion and love, that a country needs to be successful, 
and it's exactly why I also want to help America grow.

We help less fortunate countries, we rally for rights, 
 give to the poor, and other causes…
We give money and walk hundreds of miles for Cancer research...

Why not give to America’s need for job growth?

It affects us all. Whether you are unemployed, an employee, an employer or own a small independently run business...

America needs jobs.

Check out what people are saying on Twitter about #indivisible.

Our goal in America is to co-exhist, unite and be free....

And together is the only way we can do it.
Support US Today!

A Monday Poem

We all have Monday's. Some of us worse than others.

My wonderful friend Deb, owns her own greeting card company, where she writes personalized poems. I love them so much and can always find comfort, inspiration or a good laugh from them.

Read this one, it reminds me of how, with summer on the brain, our memories can fail us and can make a workday not so joyous...and... how grace and forgiveness (both from ourselves and others, can help):

artwork is property of
It’s happened to me
And probably happened to you
Your memory failed
And didn’t come through
You worked through the morning
Without a care in the world
Then retrieved a voice mail
And your day just unfurled
Even with reminders
In your calendar book
You missed this one meeting
And then your heart jumped and shook
But people understand
Like I hope Catherine does
Nobody’s perfect today
At least that’s the buzz!
So, forgive me, I hope
And the lesson for me
Don’t judge others harshly
It will catch you, you’ll see
From your office or home, send a loved one a poem
(All poems are complete with artwork and can be directly mailed to card recipient.)
