What actions will you take on Earth Day 2013, April 22


There is something, be it huge or tiny, that each one of us can do every day to defend and protect our environment.  What is it you do?

EARTH DAY is that one day a year when we should have Zero Tolerance to the ignorance and neglect of our planet. Be positive, be proactive, think about how good you will feel when you exercise your right to be good to the planet.

DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING that will help the environment.

  • How about remembering to power down the power strips?
  • Maybe picking up the trash rather than walking over it?
  • Not driving or watching TV for a day?  Oh my; what could happen?
  • Decide not to apply toxic chemicals to your lawn, laundry or lettuce.

These may sound silly and yes they were intended to;  Bring humor, gratitude and excitement into whatever extra effort you choose to put into Earth Day (how about every day)?

Signed, the eternal optimist

Learning something new every day is the only way; electronic signatures

Although I’ve been using another Adobe program to ‘electronically sign’ documents without any fee; not everyone has that version of Acrobat.

Today I learned of a new (also free) way to do it using ECHOsign

Some are still having to print the document, sign it, scan it and fax or eMail.   SAVE TIME and money and energy and CO2 consumption.

If you find it simple and useful, pay it forward and help other small business owners and Individuals leverage free tools online (with value)… C

convenience of electronic signatures which are legal

The Great Leadership Challenge

by Jim Rohn

If you want to be a leader who attracts quality people, the key is to become a person of quality yourself. Leadership is the ability to attract someone to the gifts, skills, and opportunities you offer as an owner, as a manager, as a parent. What’s important in leadership is refining your skills. All great leaders keep working on themselves until they become effective. Here are some specifics:

Learn to be strong but not impolite. It is an extra step you must take to become a powerful, capable leader with a wide range of reach. Some people mistake rudeness for strength. It’s not even a good substitute.

Next, learn to be kind but not weak. We must not mistake weakness for kindness. Kindness isn’t weak. Kindness is a certain type of strength. We must be …

World Candle Lighting Day – December 13

Today is World Candle Lighting Day

Posted: 12 Dec 2010 07:17 PM PST

When I was doing some research to find out what types of activities, events and holidays occurred today for my Quirky Marketing Calendar blog, I discovered World Candle Lighting Day and time stood still for a moment.

You see, World Candle Lighting Day is about honoring and remembering children who have died at any age from any cause. For those of you who know me, you may have heard that in 2007 I lost Alexis Lee Richards (27) to a drug oversdose. She was my middle daughter. She is survived by Jennifer and Suzannah and never a day goes by that I don’t think of her, sometimes with great sadness and other times with joy as I remember how much life Alexis packed into her 27 years on earth.

My granddaughter, who is only 6 years old, reminds us we have our very own special angel watching over us each and every day.

So I thought it only fitting to share with the readers of WE Magazine for Women for those of you who have lost a child or know someone who has lost a child to anything.  May you remember them with peace and joy and love in your heart. I am sure your special angels are watching over you and those you love too.

About the Worldwide Candle Lighting:  The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause. As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.

Compassionate Friends website offers several resources to help grieving families including: Online support: grief support for siblings, grandparents, and families; the Open to Hope Talk Show and much more.

And finally, here is a poem I share every year on Alexis birthday to celebrate her life:

You Mean the World … to ME!

There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.

At least 15 people in this world love you in some way. Make that 16!

The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.

A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don’t like you.

Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. One of them is me

You mean the world to someone. ME!

Never forget that you are special and unique.

Someone that you don’t even know exists loves you.

When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.

When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.

Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

Your family are like the stars.  You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there. Whenever you need me, look up and I’ll be there.

“Whenever God Closes One Door He Always Opens Another, Even Though

Sometimes It’s Hell in the Hallway”

Let this be your mantra today and always: “I would rather have one rose and a kind word from someone I love while I’m here than a whole truck load when I’m gone.

Or Ice Cream and Steak!”

And always remember…. when life hands you Lemons, ask for Tequila and Salt!

I love you …..

The Seven Spiritual Laws by Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra in November 2006, speaking at Yahoo.

Image via Wikipedia

Real spiritual growth changes a person in a paradoxical way, bringing both understanding and preserving innocence. Deeper than love, the one thing you can’t do without is innocence. Innocence is the source of love. It is openness.

The Seven Spiritual Laws :

1.       Everything is possible. We all have the gift of creating absolutely anything. There’s no limit to what we can do or be.

2.       If you want to get something, give it. Always give with a happy heart. The greatest gift is feeling good.

3.       When you make a choice, you change the future (karma). Your choices bring about changes. To make good choices, follow your heart. How do your choices make you feel?

4.       Don’t say no—go with the flow. Create peace within by learning acceptance of what is outside our control.

5.       Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed. Making your wish is like planting a seed and believing that it will grow. Let nature do the rest.

6.       Be open to life and enjoy the journey. New ways and new ideas can lead to more happiness.

7.       You are here for a reason. Your dharma is your purpose, path, or vision, the unique talent that you are here on Earth to share. Your dharma is your happiness.

The big picture of your life

From our every enlightening Stephanie Dowrick via Positive Thoughts

The big picture of your life.

Posted: 13 Nov 2010 08:17 AM PST

When you find yourself caught in a trap of your own making , remind yourself that whatever it is you are worrying about is only ever part of the big picture of your life.

Look down on your life from the vantage point of an eagle. Think about where you have to come from , what you have already learn-and where you are going. Acknowledge what resources you already have.

Ask yourself gently if you need help and how you will ask for it. Remember tough situations that you have already survived; what you learned; what you gained.

Let yourself see how the situation will look six month from now. Remember some dramas from the past that once loomed large and are now mere pinpoints in your history.

Appreciate the scale and depth of your life’s journey : the complexity of it, the richness of it, the uniqueness of it.

The attention that you give to the details of your life will always be enhanced when you are also able to see and appreciate the more spacious picture of your existence.
