The Light Bulb moments when a child is able to rollover or stand up, they see the world from a different perspective. They develop resilience from trying and trying again. They keep trying to get up over and over again. Resilience continually flows and helps us adapt.
As adults, business owners, and everyday workers or parents we have the capacity to develop a sense of gratitude along the way too. We become clearer thinking when we study, focus, and have positive goals. It is never to late to develop the attitude of gratitude.
Linda talks about her time as a new teacher at the age of 21 and how fitting it was for her. She loved being a teacher and being with kids. She had the energy and could relate to the 7 year old children she taught. We all need to stay connected to our “why” we do the things we practice each day.
She continues to discuss the 7 year increments in a woman’s life. These changes in life are teaching us to navigate and refine our skills and talents. We keep building resilience and joy. So many things are developing just as the small baby in the first 12 months of life.
Enjoy each season of your life.
“Finding your calling is like finding your why! It is the reason you exist; your purpose for living. When you do that, it changes everything.” John Maxwell
What are the pillars of your life?
What are the common denominators in life? Emotions? Desire to be fed? The need to have contact with others and commune with one another? The ability to share ideas, read, travel, and brainstorm.
Are you ready to go back to school? Are your family members ready to do that? What is on your plate?
Join up with others. Accountability is so very helpful.
It helps us stay on track and grow. Studies have shown that public statements make us accountable. Partner up with people you trust. Have others you trust give you feedback.
Question what it is you need to learn.
Hospitality Goes Along Way
Understanding one another goes a long way. It gives us the opportunity to connect with our peers, our family, our community. We need to be adaptable to change.

Good Morning and Welcome to Mini Miracles from Minor Moments where it is the small seemingly insignificant moments in our lives that blossom into awesome Mini Miracles. Every week we are here to share stories, ideas, and information to help make your life easier and happier.
Welcome to this weeks podcast # 143 with Linda and her guest Cliff Ravenscraft. Linda interviews Cliff Ravenscraft as he talks about his journey in the Online world of Podcasting and where he is now.
In 2016 Linda began asking everyone she knew about Podcasting and no one could help. Then in a forum, she received the name of Cliff. She promptly signed up for his course and the rest is history. Today she talks to Cliff about the evolution of Mini Miracles and shares with listeners Cliff Ravenscraft.
Cliff talks about podcasting he began as a hobby and how it has grown into a bigger dream. Today, Cliff focuses on his role as a business mentor and life coach. He mentors coaches, consultants and thought leaders through the transition from their unfulfilling day job to their own responsible and profitable online business so that they can live the life of their dreams and do the work they feel most called to do in this world.
Check out Free the Dream Conference September 13 -15th in Franklin, Tennessee.

Being a Cheer Leader always looks like fun and actually it is fun! Under the most trying circumstances, there are a many ways to be lifted up and pull out the positive features. Just today, I attended the Funeral of an old friend. We knew each other for about 40 years and would always greet each other with a hug and cheerful interaction. I must say today was sad and yet so uplifting.
The gentleman who died this week was 93, faith filled, and ready to meet his wife in the eternal life. His next two generations were seated in the pews and friends were scattered around to celebrate his life. I ran into another person during the service; another witness to the Godly ways of the world. I witnessed tears, smiles, and hugs. All offered to one another as a form of empathy, understanding, and support.
Embracing life and all its challenges keeps us on our toes. We are supposed to be an example for one another. What kind of example are you? Do you go out of your way to embellish the gifts of those around you? Do you have a good joke to share or something that can help them navigate the journey?
When I was a child, I loved parades. We lived near a parade route and I would go to every one that our community celebrated. The Marching Bands of the local schools, the floats honoring the Kings and Queens of different High Schools, the Firetrucks, and bright customs and the various groups passing out candy and gadgets, made my day. I saw smiles, and the Veteran’s in uniform saluting the flag. So many wonderful and respectful measures were taken!
Let us show respect for those who serve our communities, our nation, and our elderly. Let us give back to them credit for all the wonderful examples of work ethics, of showing up daily, of attending Church, and being our cheerleaders. Blessings for a great day!
Put that first step forward, it may put you on the escalator of success.

When we are children, we take so much for granted. We assume everyone can hear, see, taste, smell, and connect lovingly. Our world is awesome, because the sky is the limit. Fast forward, we begin to interact with more people, places, and things than just our loving parents or family members. Slowly we learn the pain of getting hurt, or being ignored, or smelling bad things. We learn to adjust to the smells of foods, the environmental odors of the earth, plants, and misty rains. Our world of fragrance, the sight of running pets, and the awesomeness of butterflies whirling around us expose us to new stimuli. We usually can see the details on the smalls bugs, and earthworms. We can see far away and observe the changes happening around us. If one is lucky their actual site opens up the world of learning. By adulthood, we may be cynical and toughened to feel the joys that we once felt. Is that what you want? How can that be changed? Are you comfortable where you are at in life or do you want new challenges and ways to contribute to the world around you?
Several years ago, I locked myself out of the house. I laid down on the front lawn with my dog, who was also locked out with me. Suddenly my perspective changed completely. The dried pieces of grass were pinching my legs, the fresh grass was waving with the wind, and the world looked so different at the dog’s eye level. I could react to the movement of the nearby squirrels and relate to the blowing dandelion fluff in the air and across the street. Although I don’t remember how I got back into the house, I do recall the clarity and vision I had at that level and often would say to our dog “so what are you seeing that I am missing?”
Clarity comes to us in the words that we hear, through the people we meet, and of course, in the books that we read. We take in the details and expand our knowledge to fit the work we are called to do. Where do you need clarity in your life? Are you looking for guidance and direction from others or searching for it on the internet? Are you called by God to expand your vision or are you satisfied to stay where you are at in life? Watching the inquisitive of children is so exciting for me. I hope I never lose the ability to grow and question the world I live in each and every day. Every person, situation, and challenge one faces imprints and impacts us. There is a trace of influence or a new concept to absorb. How cool is that?
Now is the beginning of new clarity and vision. Literally we need to see the world around. We need to feel the joy and life giving spirit that thrives in children, relationships, and with our pets. We need to learn by taking a step forward into something new, it can put you onto the escalator of success. Join us here midweek and on Friday’s for our weekly podcast on finding the fulfilling minor moments that grace us with mini miracles. Or connect with us at Delight in Living, Ltd.
Learning from the past successes and failures can bring us significant opportunities to help one another. Think about 10 people who played an important part in your life. They can be parents, grandparents, neighbors, or bosses. What did they teach you? Was it a spirit of kindness, organization, joy, or how to be social? Every person we encounter has the capacity to lend us a helping hand or great insight. What will you pass on to others?Linda shares how the way we learn either helps us conquer life and supports our lifestyles or deflates us. Being aware of our own learning styles also can allow us to touch others in a positive way. Responding to the needs of one another quickly adds joy, affirmation that we are worth it, and positivity. As grandparents we can lend a helping hand in a way to parents simply because we have different skills, less pressure, and the wisdom to do the small necessary things that affirm children.
Enjoy the stories and ideas that may help you take the first step to riding the escalator of success.
Preparing for Success may take time and thought, but once you are prepared, the task may not only be fun, but profitable. Linda addresses in Podcast 137 the small insignificant mini miracles may come from the rhythm that we set in place. It may work for you too?
Reliable and genuine people make the first step to becoming great leaders easy. When development starts early, it often continues to grow as we enter into adulthood and business. No matter what environment we are in, we need to develop the skills that can help us to be independent and allow us to contribute to society.
What are you working on? What do you want to accomplish? Who do you need to connect with in the coming weeks? What ambitions do you have that you are working on each day?
As you listen to this weeks podcast, hope you have a few great “takeaways” to move you forward! It may put you on the escalator of success.
