No Gain, No Pain?

Earlier this week I read 10 Signs the Economy Is on the Upswing.

And I’m sharing with you the 10 signs plus my side comments 🙂

  1. Sales of Boxers, Briefs Leveling Off – new undies!
  2. Desserts Are in Again – sweet too!
  3. Less Sorrowful Searching – smiley!
  4. The Venti Latte Makes a Comeback – ground taste!
  5. Box Rebound Reflects Rising Demand – just in the box!
  6. Fewer Urban Dwellers Are Hoofing It – hello cabbie!
  7. Duffers Returning to the Greens – golf time!
  8. Faces, Other Parts Getting a Lift – +13M gone under the knife!
  9. More Willing to Play Their Hand – gambling life!
  10. More Couples Are Calling It Quits – game over!

There are signs that made me glad, sad, and very sad.

I’m very sad for sign number 10.

What is it about money that loosens the bind of marriage and family?

  1. Because it can buy a spaceous house and leave each other alone?
  2. Because it can make you hold so much except each others’ hands?
  3. Because it can buy time thus no need to rush home to the family?
  4. Because it can make you dream big and leave the family behind?
  5. Because it can buy toys for the kiddos thus no need to bond?
  6. Because it can spill over thus keep it in someone else house?
  7. Because it can buy you a new face and nose and heart?
  8. Because it can treat the problem to a shopping spree?
  9. Because it can buy friends, love, and respect?
  10. Because it can make you forget how to kneel?

Money money money…

Prayer warriors please share your prayers for the family, marriage, and handling of finances. The world needs the Word.

The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss

 

Thank you Tisha for making me stop and appreciate. Keep on inspiring with your Biz Mommy!

What makes my heart swell? Here are 3!

1.  Us — my hubby, my kiddos and I, taking turn reading Dr. Seuss book and having a good laugh! “Left foot, right foot, feet, feet, feet. How many feet you meet.”

2.  Whenever one of us cook (hubby, me or 1 of the kiddos) and we all say, “Delicious! Thank you!”

3.  When we show and say how much we value each other. Like the excitement on my kiddos faces each time I come home plus hugs, kisses and I love yous! I thank God sooo much for that!

What’s your 3 things? Please share it in your place or in the comments — got to hear that!

The Janitor

The Janitor -move your mind and heart

You’re a CEO who is loosing control of your business and personal life — yourself, your marriage, your family. Would you heed the advice of the janitor?

Roger Kimbrough, the CEO did.  He had a weekly green tea meeting with janitor Bob Tidwell who shared six simple but powerful principles.

You can read and ponder what truly matters to you through the lives of the CEO and the janitor in the book THE JANITOR by authors Todd Hopkins and Ray Hilbert.

And here’s to share with you briefly the six principles that turned around the life of the CEO.

1. RECHARGE VS DISCHARGE. If you keep pouring energy out and you don’t recharge ,then one day you’ll run empty. You’ll burn out. A burned-up brain won’t start up.

2. VIEW YOUR FAMILY AS BLESSINGS NOT RESPONSIBILITY. Tell your family you love them; remind them of how much they mean to you.

3. PRAY NOT POUT. Sometimes when your plate is full, God will give you great insight on what is important to focus on and what needs to be removed from your plate entirely.

4. PASS IT AROUND. Share your knowledge and wisdom to everyone before it is too late. Anyone can give a meaningless gift. That would be no great reflection on my character, would it?

5. DON’T SPEND; INVEST! Invest your time in things that have value. Is there some eternal significance in what I am doing? Does it have any eternally significant impact on someone else?

6. LEAVE A LEGACY. It doesn’t matter if you live 2 thousand years or twenty. What matters is how you fill the space between the dates on your gravestone. Let your wisdom live and multiply in each life that you touch.

There, THE JANITOR can help me pick up the pieces and I’ll surely enjoy an evening with him sipping hot green tea. How about you?

Joy Tizon

1. My Mother. She had me made a dress each recognition day of my elementary days. Each year for 6 years I had a new dress! Yipee!

2. My Father. He played scrabble and chess with me when I was a kiddo. He must be proud of me when I won just like I am now with my son!

3. My Siblings. They’re awesome in their own ways. More awesome than me!

4. My Hubby. I wonder how could he love me, hate me, love me, hate me, love me!

5. My Kiddos. My heart swells!

6. God. He is also the wonder of my life!

7. Joy. She’s my dear friend since college. She’s the 1st friend who really got close to my heart and her smile is the sweetest. And it’s her birthday today — Happy Birthday Joy!

Just 7 for now though I got a whole lot more like my pliers, paint brushes and colored pens. Really just 7 for now.

This entry is here to create wonder and share with you what is written on my heart. Can you please share some of yours?
