How an unexpected event can reap rewards

A fierce wind and snow storm wreaked havoc on Whidbey Island north of Seattle before the holidays. Wind ravaged trees strewing them all over roads and tore down power lines, leaving residents without heat, electricity or passable roads. What were they supposed to do for the holidays? Last minute purchases and food shopping couldn’t occur.

Yet, one family didn’t care. The Father told the kids to dress warm. We’re walking a mile to go sledding. The three kids ranging from 6 to 13 years old yelled “Yeahhhhhh.” They walked the mile to the large hill and sledded down for hours. They didn’t care they were cold and wet. They were having a blast hanging out with their parents. They came home and changed into dry clothes and set them next to the warm fire. The mother got creative and cooked food that was going to spoil on top of the wood burning stove.

All night long the family played board games. That night, they snuggled in sleeping bags near the wood burning stove and stayed warm. This went on for three days.

  • There were no phones.
  • There was no wifi.
  • There were no computers.
  • There was no tablets.
  • There wasn’t even a hot shower.

The family bonded more in a couple days over fun experiences and conversation than they had the entire previous year running kids from one thing to the next.

Where in your life do you need to disconnect from technology and reconnect to what’s most important?

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!

The Sneaky Habit That Can Ruin Everything

Most people today run from one thing to the next without thinking. It could from meeting to meeting. From home to a sporting event.

Few people stop and think about if what they are doing truly serves them, their loved ones, or their life’s mission.

The same holds true in our relationships. We think that if someone has been around for 10+ years, they’ll be around forever.

The problem is that people eventually get bored. Whether its at work, in a relationship, or how they go about life. They seek something different, something new.

People get complacent. This is a scary word. This is a bad habit that can take a once awesome part of your life and flush it straight down the drain. This can be one of the single biggest things that ends 10, 20 year marriages.

When we stop giving something the love and attention it deserves, we start taking it for granted.

The opposite of complacency is novelty.

What can you do to bring more playful fun into your world?

How can you bring a little extra spark to your relationship?

Can you learn a new skill at work?

How can you challenge yourself with a new hobby?

Where can you add more novelty into your life?

Novelty stretches you and expands you past your current limitations. These sparks will add more fun back into you life, career, and relationships.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
