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.

Get Organized: Clean Up Your Virtual Desktop - great article, it includes links and tips on digital folders, your email inbox, how to think about data in order to organize it, etc.

#MakeItHappenMonday

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?…

Look Alike Day (or Doppelganger)
Do you have a look alike?  Do you want to look like someone else?
When I was in High School and had hair down to my waist my classmates thought I looked like these two actresses:













Sometimes wanting to be a look alike gets to be creepy and obsessive...
Yes, these are REAL (sort of) people. They have both gone through multiple surgeries in their quest to look like Ken and Barbie, both in looks and in body shape.  Disturbing is an understatement.












Here is an attempt at being a Justin Bieber look alike.  I say it has been an epic fail but it's still disturbing.









It's fine if you happen to look similar to someone known or else but to spend gross amounts of money to attempt to look like someone?  You may need some professional counseling.  I'm just sayin'.

#ThoughtfulThursday

I get accused of being stupid with some of the things I do. For example, one time I assembled these superhero packets...for adults. I put in a color-your-own mask, a power cuff (fine it was a bracelet but go with it), some motivating thoughts about what it takes to be a superhero, and a way to devise their own superhero name. I made the packets colorful and superhero-ish. I included a note about why they were getting the packet (hint - because they matter and they are superheroes). There were grumblings over how stupid I was to make the packets and hand them out. The thing is, I didn't just hand them out for the mere sake of being silly (although I don't think there is anything wrong with that) but I did it because I had a message I wanted the people to receive. A message I knew most of them needed to hear. I had a reason, I always have a reason.
Don't be shy about being thoughtful - even if you think it might come off as stupid. Just be thoughtful in some way, you won…
