It's The Little Things

Whenever I go to the movies or fun outing with my friend Diane she brings me a bag of Happy Cola gummies for my snacking enjoyment. Most every time there is a bow or some form of decoration too to make it festive. For less then $2 she makes my night every single time- even if the movies sucks and even when I know it's coming I still get excited to get them. 

There are many reasons I love her as a friend but how I know she loves me is through the little thing she does to actually show it. How sweet is that?!!! 

Next time you want to show someone you care don't not do something because you don't have the time or money for a grand gesture... it really is the little things that make all the differnce in the world :)

Pick A Different Way Of Doing It

Creativity is my gift... I fancy myself a sort of Joy-Appleseed who likes to scatter ideas around and see which grow into something fruitful. But I also believe most people have the same talent if they would relax and get into a creative frame of mind.

I've been practicing this in new areas of my life and the simple act of taking something that isn't working and trying to look at it from a different viewpoint works. 

Yada, yada, yada... you don't need me to tell you this.

It doesn't matter the topic or how creative you think you are- if something is not working in your life pick a different way of doing it. I could list tons of ways to look at life differently but you have an inner creative genius too and all you need to do is decide what's not working for you and pick something new and try it. If doesn't work try the opposite. Doesn't get you unfunked- ask a creative friend or call in a profesional. 

Life is too short and too sweet to eat from a mealy slice. It's a new season and a new quarter go pick yourself something delicious!
