MEASURING- A MATH SKILL/IMPORTANCE
Linda starts by talking for a few minutes about the concept of measuring. We need to learn these things that are used every day. We take it for granted that everyone knows simple math skills, but it isn’t true. Listen as you are encouraged to recognize and acknowledge how lucky you are to know your numbers.
This little segment is about measuring and shared for many reasons! First of all, we all have the same basic needs when it comes to learning things. 2ndly, we take it for granted that everyone knows how to do these things, 3rdly, thinking things through and taking the time to be accurate with measurements is really important to have a quality lifestyle. When we dress in clothes that fit us well, drive a car big enough to adapt to one’s 6-foot frame, or sit comfortably in the chair we need to know sizes. This week be conscious of how important these skills are and be thankful for this knowledge.
SCHEDULING TO MAKE YOU FEEL IN CONTROL/HELP OTHERS
Mini Miracles from Minor Moments allows one to see the joy that comes from the smallest happenings in time. Scheduling in the opportunities for growth and diversity in our days is good. They don’t need to be hourly sessions, but just wholesome and authentic moments. One needs to do that for making the most of time, talent, and quality. Not only do we help ourselves, but we help everyone around us feel appreciated. Enjoy the smallest events and successes.
FRAMING FROM A WINDOW IN CHICAGO
Linda shares looking out of a window overlooking the City of Chicago and how framing can help us move forward. Seeing things in the daytime may look totally different to us in the evening because of the lighting. Obstacles and challenges are framed differently when one is alert as opposed to being tired and worn out. Sometimes we see how others resolve problems and find excellent solutions when we know what they are sharing is the truth. We see obstacles that may be in front of us and then we can avoid them.
COMPLIMENTS AND HELPING ONE ANOTHER
Linda shares how sometimes we do not hear and absorb nice compliments. Make sure others hear your compliments. Often people don’t take in the average comment as a positive thing. You also need to receive kind thoughts others share with you and see that they are blessings.
LABELS, TAGS, AND STIGMAS
Comments we hear are not always accurate. Be careful that we don’t label others or make comments that are negative. Be careful not to let tags and comments hold you back or make you fearful. We can be hurt by a label —“you are too fat, too loud, ADD, unkind,” etc. We need to throw them away. Just like a broken bone or a physical injury, many tags are temporary. We need to be careful not to put labels, tags, or impressions from others into our minds as permanent. Things change as we grow. Don’t be put in a corner or get stymied because of some label. It isn’t a good thing. Believe in yourself. Get a team of good people around you to help you know the truth and see things as changeable. Take into account self love as a gift.
Remember to take the first step, it may put you on the escalator of success!
