It’s 100 Days Until 2017, Be A Leaf!


The 22nd day of September and there are 100 days left in this year of 2016. It is also the first day of the season called fall! Yet I look at the forecast for Orlando and it said sunny with a high in the 90’s and a 30% chance of rain! Welcome autumn…Florida style! So a little changing of the foliage upon the trees, not a chill in the air, not a bearable temperatures to be found. Yet in all of this the leaves are covering the ground, blowing and going from to and fro.Crunching in their crispness as they meet with shoes and such. Are these multi-colored leaves dead or alive?

Much like the leaves that found their way to the ground we can ponder if we have seen our best days or are our better days coming. See most leaves that get shook or fall  off a tree go back into the soil and help to keep the cycle of growth going for other plant life. 

In this new season of life be a leaf, find your passion and renew your purpose for living. September is the 9th month and you need to recognize that you are pregnant! Yes there is a plan, a posture, a pursuit and a push of that thing growing inside your mind, your body and your spirit. Be determined to make these 100 Days remaining days matter. See what you want and go after it with one goal in mind, achievement!

May I simply challenge you in this fall season to tell yourself you can do and be whatever you put your mind to become in the days ahead. Here is the challenge: Take three post-it notes and use one to write what you want to do for your Mind, one for your Body, and one for your Spirit. Once you write your goals then post it on a place that you can see it and affirm you daily!

Post-it Note: Mind, Body and Spirit (YoTrip 2016)

Along with your Post-it note, find you a leaf from the ground and decide to live out these days as your best 100 Days. Remember you are pregnant, now go and put in the work, so you can birth that baby!

I see you moving onward do great things in this world!

Swing Into Your Strokes


Today’s edition of #SheSTRUTSaturday

Once I was able to master Swing Into Your Strokes, I saw I can make anything happen!

Losing To Gain (Possessions), Part 4

Things, stuff, things, stuff and more things and more stuff. Houses, cars,
stocks, bonds, land, and businesses are just a few of the things and stuff that
people own. Lately, it is hard to find people who have not experienced the loss
of possessions. The current economic climate has heightened people’s awareness
of their things, their stuff, and their possessions. The loss of possessions is
the final installment in the series “Losing To Gain”. Losing possessions is an
area that is worth examining a little closer.

Everyone has something or multiple things which are near and dear to their
heart. Let’s face it, if you worked hard for that car, that house, or that
business your ownership is a serious matter. It has been said that anything you
work hard for is well worth fighting for,if the effort was made to obtain it,
then go the extra mile to retain it. Some would say that these days fighting for
your possessions is becoming a routine task. Many people find themselves in a
position of fighting to keep their things, their stuff, their possessions.

It is amazing how losing one thing or one possession has the ability to start a
cycle of loss. Pat and Paul Possessors are a married couple with two children in
private school, living in a home, with two cars and a mini-van. Pat is a Office
Administrator and Paul is a District Sales Manager and both have worked for
their companies for more than 10 years, with solid retirement plans in place.
The Possessors’ take vacations to destinations inside and outside of the
country, several times a year. Pat and Paul are also the owners of a
successful small real estate company. A year ago, Paul was laid off from his
job, the Possessors have seen their lives change drastically. The Possessors
summed up their loss in this way: one car was loss, the children’s private
school attendance was loss, the real estate business loss clients, but most
importantly the family loss a major income stream. The devastation of losing
possessions was difficult for the Possessors, yet they were determined to stay
positive. The possessions were important to the Possessors but they were not
their central focus.

The loss of stuff, things, or possessions should not only be viewed as the end,
but as a beginning. When loss of possessions occurs, the obvious questions of
why and how settle in waiting to find answers. Losing possessions should promote
the notion of living with less. Many people have been forced to not focus on the
things they have loss but to learn to live better with what they have left. So
if you have experienced a loss of possession recently and find yourself whining
and complaining about your things and your stuff, get OVER IT!

Life is far more precious than the POSSESSIONS you surround yourself with,like a
blanket of comfort. Take time and assess your loss and see the blessing in
having your life, your health and your family. Losing to Gain (Possessions) can
best be summed up by the comedic genius of George Carlin. In his stand-up
comedy performance, Mr. Carlin exposes how losing your stuff can easily send you
into a crazy state. *Mr. Carlin (R.I.P.) does use a few choice words in his
delivery but he makes you think abou/t you and your stuff. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLoge6QzcGY

YoTrip-Words and Thoughts for Monday, July 12, 2010-GIVING UP (Vol.7, Iss.5)


GIVING up is not an option to those who are driven by a need to succeed. Every obstacle is seen as an opportunity that brings you closer to obtaining your goal. GIVING up makes it easy to give in on your hopes and dream.” 7/12/10 ~YoTrip
