Wisdom

Today’s word of inspiration is WISDOM.   Wisdom is defined as 1) the ability discern inner qualities and relationships (insight); 2) good sense (judgement), 3) generally accepted belief or teaching.   I think wisdom is a gift learned by trial and error, by mistake or failure, by having the courage to take risks, or by stepping outside your comfort zone to learn something new.   Wisdom should be shared freely and willingly.   How do you share your wisdom?   Be wise!  1/10/18 “By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” – Confucius &nbsp…

Respect

Today’s word of inspiration is RESPECT. The definition for respect is 1) a relation or reference to a particular thing or situation, 2) an act of giving particular attention, 3) high or special regard, 4) the quality or state of being esteemed.  Every time I see or hear this word, I can hear it being sung as R-E-S-P-E-C-T by Aretha Franklin!  Little did she know when she released it in 1967 it would be one of  her signature songs. You go girl!!!  Fun fact -the song was originally released by Otis Redding in 1965.  I believe that there are times when you must respect the position even if you cannot respect the person such as a boss or politician.  Respect for a role is automatically given.  Respect…

Overthink

Today’s word of the day is OVERTHINK.  The definition of overthink is to think too much about (something) : to put too much time into thinking about or analyzing (something) in a way that is more harmful than helpful.   I am certainly guilty of this sometimes!!!   Sometimes we need to turn our brain off and just go with our gut.  Trust our own instincts and abilities. Do your research, then act!  Once you have acted, trust that it will be as it should be in the end.  1/8/18 “I was a terrible actor when I went to New York. I was scared. I would over prepare, sometimes overthink a role.” —Paul Newman   &nbsp…

Time

Today’s word of inspiration is TIME.  The definition of time is 1) the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues (duration); 2) the point or period when something occurs (occasion).  There are several more but we will stick with these two.  The odd thing about time is that we never seem to have enough of it and it is one of the few things in life that you cannot undo or go back to. To me, the greatest gift I can receive is someone’s time and attention.  How are you spending your time?  How do you stay on time?  Who and what do you make priorities for your time?  Who/what should be on that list?    1/5/18…

Opportunity

Today’s word of inspiration is OPPORTUNITY.   The definition of opportunity is 1) a favorable juncture of circumstances;  2) a good chance for advancement or progress.  Some opportunities are handed to us.  Some opportunities we have to earn or seek out on our own.  What in your life are you seeking new opportunities?  What are you doing to make them happen?  Sometimes you have to let others know what you need so they can help.  I am seeking new opportunities for my new business Sharper Media and for a great romantic relationship.   1/4/18…

Decisive

Today’s word of the day is DECISIVE.   The definition of decisive is 1) having the power of quality of deciding; 2) resolute, determined, and 3) unmistakable, unquestionable.  The truth is that some things can be decided very easily and some are more difficult.  Generally the greater the risk, the more difficult the choice. Do your research – what are the options, what is the cost to do, and equally as important what is cost not to do so?  Make your list of pros and cons if you need to.  Be decisive and go for it!    1/3/18…
