Since it's a sizzling summer (at least here in the Northern hemisphere!), it's time for some celebrating, and given that it's TEB's anniversary/birthday, that's a double celebration!
So, the coach in me can't help but wonder, in the spirit of all the clues we're posting, what if we each tried to think of stuff to celebrate in our lives?
Most of us instinctively know that what we focus on expands. You know that old saying, "Misery loves company?" Well, there's an addition to that, "But company doesn't love misery!" When we obsess and fret over things, we tend to make them worse. We imagine horrible, "What if" scenarios and blow things way out of proportion in our minds.
But wait, there's more! There's good news, too!!
When we're happy, we tend to create more of that, as well. (Which is why, when we're happy, we really annoy the living daylights out of people who are cranky.)
So...what do you have to be happy about? What can you celebrate?
And here's the challenge:
Start at the letter A and go from there!
A: crisp apples on a hot day!
B: a banana split (with lots of cherries and ice cream)
D: doggie kisses
... You get the idea.
And when you get to "I," don't forget to celebrate yourself!
And when you get to "T," don't forget to celebrate Total-E-Bound.
Here's to you creating a fantastic day.
