What does Friday mean to you?

To a lot of people, it just means the end of the work week — or maybe the school week. And those people tend to give Friday a special power; the power to EASE tension, to relax, to end their responsibility for that preceding period. TGIF, they say — I’m done for the week.

But, you know, Friday could have a more significant meaning.

It could be the day when you met a certain goal or objective, or that you honored someone or something special in your life. It could be the day that commemorates a life-changing decision in your existence, or the mental release of some struggle you’ve wrestled with over time. It could be the day you decided to believe “it’s gonna be all right,” or it could simply be just another Friday.

It could mean, my friend, anything you want it to mean, because it is you who ultimately determines what every thing, every day, every circumstance in your life represents.

It’s fall now. Some see that as the END of summer, and look forward to a season of drudgery. Others see it as entering a whole new season of adventure and wonder with activities they’ve longed to do since last season!

To every end there is a new beginning. The end of life to the caterpillar, is the beginning of life for the butterfly.

What do you choose for this day to mean for you?

Make it monumental, because… you’re worth it.

Risk Being Seen…

November 21, 2014

There is an old saying… “When the student is ready the teacher will appear.” In that regard each of us may be willing student waiting, looking for that teacher. But like many things in life, we have a preconceived concept of what that teacher should look like, how he or she should appear, the manner […]

I’ve been studying leadership since… well… a long time :-) I joined the US Air Force at 17, and lots of leadership training ensued over the next 20 years. You develop your favorites.

Commence with a Winning Mindset

June 10, 2014

It’s college commencement season! When I was married, I photographed weddings nearly every weekend, so I got to hear the wedding vows every week and it kept them fresh in my mind. LOL.

Intensely Positive Intentions

January 9, 2014

Every once in a while we have to stand for something other than “ourselves.” Truly, there is no shortage of things to stand for, but you can’t tackle them all. And I’ll be honest, I like contributing to things where I can see the results of my positive efforts sooner than later.  It’s okay to […]
