Evaluate Your Life Day 

"The unexamined life is not worth living." Socrates

Take some time to be honest with yourself about yourself.  Nobody else needs to know what you see in your evaluations, but in the interest of growth and character development be brave enough to evaluate yourself.

All for What? Evaluate Your Life Day

Here's some questions to consider as you evaluate your life:

  1. Am I happy with where I'm at in my life right now?
  2. What am I passionate about? What am I doing to pursue my passion?
  3. Who and what things are weighing me down that I need to get rid of? How will I do it?
  4. What do I need to forgive myself for? 
  5. When did I feel most alive this year? What was sacred about that moment?
  6. What self-love actions can I practice on a daily basis?
  7. What do I want to let go of? (i.e. self-doubt, fear, self-critical thoughts)
  8. What do I want to dedicate 2016 to? (i.e. artistic pursuits, independence, etc)
  9. What did I learn about myself in 2015?
  10. What did 2015 represent to me on my path?

5 Ways to Reflect, Refocus, and Renew Your Life

Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day
According to Forrester Research there are over 1 billion computers in use today. All major operating systems have a "virtual desktop" littered with icons for things we no longer need or use, or could be put away in a better place. If every one of those computers had just 10 extra icons on the desktop, the space they are consuming is the equivalent of 169 acres (69 hectares) of wasted desktop space!

So don't delay - take a few minutes today and clean off your virtual desktop. Like a real desktop, a clean desktop will help keep your mind clear and uncluttered and you will be able to find things much easier. (source)

Organize!  Delete unnecessary files! Gain back some memory on your hard drive!  Set up a calendar and reminder tasks so you can keep the desktop cleaner from now on.

Are things happening to you or are you making things happen?  The difference between the two has to do with belief in self and the willingness to simply ask or take a step forward. 
Today's #MakeItHappenMonday thoughts come straight from this article I ran across. 

I'm not good at making things happen, I am lazy - fearful - insecure and just wait for things to happen to me. Not ideal I know. In fact, if I want to live a life that just happens and invites me to participate every so often then my attitude is perfect! But when I hear myself complain about things happening to me then it's not so perfect after all is it?

You've probably said it before, and I'm sure you've had it said to you, "it doesn't hurt to ask." That's true if you are a person who makes things happen. But if you are a person - like me - who waits for things to happen then the asking seems out of line or fear inducing or something uncomfortable.

So what kind of person are you?…


Let's talk about style. Not current fashion but those fashions we sported back in our younger days. You know those days - when we thought we looked G.O.O.D. *wink* 
In the spirit of the day here's a few photos of my stellar fashion sense back in my day. 
August 1983 - I LOVED this dress, I wore it a lot and I thought I was quite the cutie in it! 
I'm not just outing my fashion sense today but my brother's as well - look at his shorts and socks! Hahaha! And then there's me. I remember this outfit very well - I put a lot of thought into it. I was definately going through a pink phase - you can't see it here obviously but my entire bedroom was pink walls - as in bubblegum pink - along with white wallpaper that had pink hearts on it. This was in July 1986. 
Huh. I just noticed that with the posting of this picture and the two above there's a lot of pink. I must have liked it much more than I thought. To be fair this sweater I'm wearing in September of 1987…


Today's feelings are the ones we feel but can't name. For example...

The english language lacks the adjectives that the range of human emotion actually covers. All other languages have multiple meanings for human emotions like love, anger, sadness, etc. And in those different meanings we find more apt descriptions of what we each feel every day. In fact, Forbes published an article about this last year. 
So the next time you are feeling something but can't figure out a word for it just know that there may be a word out there after all. Google the feeling and see what word pops up!
