We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary last week!
We didn’t go out. Just like our regular weekend menu, we had our favorite Sardin fillets with tomato sauce, stir-fried broccoli and lotus root, five grains rice and miso soup, with a bottle of red Spanish wine.
It’s nice to have an anniversary to reflect on our long journey together. But, at our age of 57 and 56, we still believe that our future is much more exciting than the fix old past!
We're grateful for having enough energy and passion for looking forward and support each other to reach for our dreams.
One of the strategies that have been working well for our growing relationship is to celebrate something small every day. When we decide to celebrate something little daily:
You may be doing this already, but if...
Gift selection requires a high level of sophistication, shows a person's personality and care for others. These Moroccan leather slippers are the perfect gift I received from the ladies co-workers when I left my corporate job. I am grateful for their thoughtfulness and admire the sense of humor and style.
Why are those slippers attracting my heart?
- Reminds me of the importance of "putting myself in the shoes of the others."
- Lets me feel the soles of my feet, and to check whether I am standing straight up in my new life journey
- I can say hello to the smiles on the slippers, same as their big smiles
When I put on the slippers, I am determined that I would be a role model for them and show life's possibilities.
What is the best gift you've given recently? Why is so?
Do you have a dream?
When I left the company I worked for 34 years at 54 and decided to transform my career into a high performance coach, a breathing coach, and a personal stylist, people around me said, "Oh, you're brave!"
I simply followed my heart’s desire.
A friend in 50s said, "I envy you.” I asked, “Why envy? I’m leaving the company. I haven’t achieved anything yet.” She answered, “Because you have a dream."
Her face was serious. When I looked at her, I saw a feeling of sorry for her true self.
In our workplace, people don’t often share their dream outside the scope of the corporate mission and objectives.
I cheered her on with all my energy and said, "A dream will not find you today. Start asking yourself, what is it that I am so attracted? What do you love most in your life? What do you like to accomplish more?"
Send your energy to that direction and draw them closer to you every day.
Cheers to your dream!
