Change a Light Day
Change out your bulbs today to ones that are rated for energy efficiency.  And as an extra tip, when you leave a room turn off the light!  That saves energy as well. *wink*

Improve Your Office Day
Since April 2013 I've had an office space to call my own and to "personalize." About 9 months in I finally hung up a calendar I had bought with pictures I liked. But I have these two big blank walls, well actually three, that just sit there. I could care less. Finally at the end of 2014 my COO asked if he could hang a large clock from IKEA on the largest blank wall. I gave permission, clearly I had done nothing with the space!  I like the clock and it serves as a joke. I guess I just don't care. Yes I spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week in this space but it's not my life. But just about a month ago I finally sucked it up and decorated. There were so many ways I could have gone and when I finally decided on my "theme" I took it as far as I thought I could!  I used my office space walls to tell a story of what is sunshine on my cloudy days and to remind me of what's the most important to my heart.

What about you? Do you live in an office space or cubicle that you have or haven't personalized? Today is a day to make a change if you would like!

World Animal Day
Today was set aside in conjunction with the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi.
St Francis of Assisi was a champion of God's creation, especially animals.
Blessing of the Animals
I confess. I'm a HUGE fan of St Francis of Assisi.  I love the ministry he had and how it has continued into today. I didn't know much about him until I watched a movie about him a few years ago.  It made me an even bigger fan of his!

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!
