Your Daily Reminder

Over the weekend, I bought a new phone.

The calendar on this one is a little more intense than my previous phone. It gives an enormous amount of options for the reminders.

Yes lovely. I set reminders about everything.

I spoke with a friend yesterday, and as soon as we hung up from talking, I set a reminder about meeting her for coffee. It was only two days away, but I knew to set a reminder about it.

It’s not that my life is so busy I’d forget.

No love. I get so caught up in the present moment, it’s best to remind myself of future events.

After speaking with my friend, I went to check out a place for pedicures. My daughter and I have been wanting to sit and have one, but I wasn’t sure where. There are so many options where we live, but I’d heard good things about this place.

After making the appointment, I set a reminder. It was for the next day, which is today, but I set one.

In writing this I realize there are moments of goodness on my calendar. Moments I don’t want to miss. What are you reminding yourself of today?

I saw this posted by SC Lourie this morning.

Here my darling. Allow me to remind you…

Coffee, good friends, and chocolate are staples in my life. Keep going, Sunshine. Your daily reminder.

It’s All Good

I write about beauty and this life God has given me.

Sometimes I can be my own worst enemy. Overthinking any given phrase can cause me to pick apart a conversation. The handful of people I surround myself with would be better off if I would choose the correct role and stay there. My daughter wants a Mom and not a Coach. She will tell me often, “Stop coaching me.” It’s what I do, not who I am.

The one thing I Coach about more than anything else is ‘happiness.’ I enjoy numerous levels of happiness, but some people have none. My passion is to help people find the right level for themselves. What is the biggest culprit of zero happiness? Other people. Yes, people happen.

God places people in my path wherever I go that need encouragement, even at the grocery store. They just gravitate toward me and I enjoy it very much. Sometimes it’s just to listen to their problems, or to assist them in unloading their cart. You know you have a person in desperate need when all they want is a hug.

It’s important to have at least one person in your life who knows and loves your authentic self. I can lose myself in what I do, but I have a friend in North Carolina who knows me very well. She finds it humorous that I would not have one animal, and today, I am Sweeping Dog Hair.

She gently reminds me of who I am, how far I’ve come and how God wants to use me. We need at least one person who believes in us. Then it’s all good.
