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.

Today I want to celebrate transformation - the work we have each put in day after day, month after month, year after year to become not who we were. Let me say this - there is no shame in who we were because that was the hurt us - the baggage laden us - the angry us. And we've done the work so let's celebrate who we aren't and who we now are!  The song above is all about being transformed - from the choices to let go of pain and find healing. It inspired something called cardboard testimonies which I personally love. A way to share your story in one or two sentences/phrases. I don't know about you but I love not being who I was. I still have work to do but I love looking back and seeing the transformation I've gone through thus far. 

Here's some inspiration - yes, a lot of it is faith based (okay maybe all of it) but if you don't subscribe to a faith that's okay! You still have a cardboard testimony. 


So in case *you* didn't know...I have a wee obsession with the TV show Friends. Nothing that requires an intervention...well at least I don't think so. *wink*

Today's #FRIENDSFriday is all about how well do you, or I, know the show? It's time for a little Friends Trivia!

And in keeping with the trivia focus today here's a clip of one of my most favorite episodes of Friends that features one of the best games of trivia ever!

Watching my brothers become Uncles - thanks to my oldest redhead - has been one of the best things in my life. It was through their interactions with her from the moment she was born until present day that made me see the men they were growing up to be and what kind of Father's they would be to their own children someday. It takes nothing at all for me to think back to those days when she was an itty-bitty and my brothers - who had no experience with babies - took on soothing her when she cried, changing her diapers, helping feed her, and just snuggling. Mushy gushy heart.

What makes you sentimental today?
