Not showing up

I have written on the topic of promise, agreements, commitments before, but I still find all too often that people think nothing of just not showing up for something they said they’d show up for. I find it very frustrating. Posting this as a reminder to keep your commitments (and if you don’t think you […]

Reflections of Thankfulness

My typical Turkey Day has always been crazy busy with cooking and socializing. So much so that I probably never took the time I should have to truly reflect on the reason for the day. Thanksgiving is a day to stop our busy lives and reflect on all the blessings we have and be truly […]

What are you silently telling everyone?

Your non-verbal body language speaks loud and clear. From the driver who aggressively flipped the bird at the car in front of me, to the very subtle tweak of an eyebrow by the person eavesdropping on a conversation… What are you silently telling everyone? I might even suggest that non-verbal communication is more effective than […]

The Drama Train

I have written about drama before… http://newdirectionlifecoaching.com/strife-happens/ … but I see it often. Over-reacting or overly dramatic responses can ruin any occasion, whether it’s a • Family event • Friendly get together • Typical day at the office • School day • Phone call Once someone makes the leap from “cool and collected” to “overly […]

The grass is always greener…

This is a picture (as taken) of my parent’s property, in Vermont. Jim and I both remarked, “Look how green everything is!” Then we discussed how much rain they have had this spring. They’ve had so much rain, and cool temperatures, this past May/June that they seldom had the opportunity to mow the grass. To […]

Control your thoughts

I happened upon a video this morning about how your thoughts control your feelings. I thought it made such a good point that I was going to be lazy and just post the video link in this week’s blog and get on with my day. BUT after the very good point came a very strong […]

Just Be Nice

I mean, seriously! How hard is it to just be nice? Okay, I’ll admit, sometimes people can get under our skin, but is that an excuse to be rude to someone? This thought process is being brought to you by a recent shopping experience. No, not a Black Friday example, although there seem to be […]

The Stench of Beauty

The Stench of Beauty There’s an interesting topic, don’t you think? I could be talking about looks and beauty products. Women know the things they put themselves through to look beautiful in the eyes of society. (Hmmm, that could be a whole ‘nother blog.) For this week’s purposes, I’m talking about lawns and lives. We […]

Grandchildren Interruptions

I have always said that, to me, it’s “family first.” Which means I will miss work if my family needs me, I will skip housework/chores if time with my family presents itself, and I will find a fill in for a prior commitment if my family comes to visit.
