Campaign Spreadin’ Smiles

Retweet

Ignite Smiles to Brighten Our World!  The choice is ours.  To me there are two ways of looking at this.

  • “Just Be!”  Don’t take part in the world around us
  • “Must Be Part of the World and make a difference!”  Making a difference is just bringing out that smile.

Smiles  cause such a ripple effect.  Feel that  you can help make a positive difference.    Make the decision to join us and challenge people to Smile and thank people in making a difference with their smile.  Smiles are contagious.  The Campaign “Spreadin’ A Smile” has begun. to Celebrate Smiles!

Join us !  Go to our Spreadin’ A Smile Blog where I blog on all types of things that make us smile.  You can be a champion in this campaign by spreading this initiative in your schools, businesses and in your private life.  I found that I never felt so good until I spent time looking for people who smile.  Found that I smile more as I meet new friends I never even knew existed or would not have even noticed.

This blog also provides ways of bringing out a smile when challenges appear when we feel like we are in the dumps.  We can be Resilient!  Tools are available.  You probably have some tools already however, learn about more even tricks that we might have right in our pocket.  Visit the Spreadin’ A Smile Blog!

We need you.  Let me know what role you could play within this initiative.  Have fun with us!  So click on this link….Spreadin A Smile Blog and join.  Also, register, here, at Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village.

Join our virtual family!  We are growing!  We welcome you to our special village, Brook N’ Dell. that has new roads and new sites coming your way.

Yellowstone Here I Come!

Retweet

A Special Wildlife Treasure Chest is about to open!  Animals, Plants and a Special Land along with many Special People will be the key ingredients to this special adventure that is about to unfold.

Old Faithful
Hiking The Yellowstone Trails
Bears...Bears...Bears and More

As a Resilience Living Professional my coaching extends from helping clients with personal goals such as the clutter in their life to bringing out the passion in their business life to having “Love” in their life and crossing bridges to new opportunities.  Each day unique treasures unfold before their eyes as these precious people begin to see that special unique quality that is all their own.  

Treasures can be found all over as we step into every moment of every day.  Leaping into the unknown to find these treasures brings meaing into our lives.   With this said, “Life is an Adventure.”  We really need to remember this.  

  So, I have decided to do just that.  I am going on an adventure to Yellowstone National Park!!!!!  I will be there all summer! 

 Just the planning alone on choosing where I am going to stop along the road has opened up so many doors to supportive people.  I have talked to people in Amarillo, TX. Colorado Springs, Co., Cheyenne, WY., Evanston, WY., and Island Park, ID.  The photos and activities alone that I am reading about are setting the stage for a summer not to be forgotten. 

So, if you care to join me virtually and I do hope you do, send me your email address and I will make sure you receive my blog along the way.  You can also come back to Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village, as well, and enjoy my photographic journey as it unfolds before my eyes and those of my side-kick, Gracie. 

Send your email address to ResilienceLiving@gmail.com.  Remember. Your email will not be shared.

Look forward to maybe seeing you there as well.  I will be staying at the Lake Area within Yellowstone.  So, there are lot’s more to come as I set the plans into action.  Wishing you  Happy Travelin’ as well!

As an added note:  Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village brings to visitors much support, resources and stories.  Links will be provided as I start my adventure. 

So Come Back, You hear!  Lookin’ Forward to you coming along virtually on this incredible journey.  Maybe will even go geocaching.

 

If you are not sure where you will be traveling, our affiliate, Maps.Com can help. 10% of proceeds will be donated to charity. Many “Free” Items available for you, your family and school. Enjoy! Hope I do meet you in

Call in Broadcast this Thursday – Topic “Share ideas” you have to make a difference

Retweet

Read my blog this morning at “In the Moment.”      There are so many challenges in our world today.  Let’s share some ideas you have around taking on these challenges with the thought of making the world around you better

There are people over the centuries who have taken a challenge, come up with an idea and made a difference.  This is what we call Resilience Living.  We are here at Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village to promote Resilience Living.  There are many villagers out there in the world making it happen.  Making people of all ages think about the key they might hold in their heart in making a difference.  We must remember that we are resilient.  We do have the answers.  However, we need to make a change in our thinking.  Traditional thoughts of years ago need to be updated to today.  People are living longer.  All age groups are more equipped to live a full life.  Each of us needs to look within our own heart for the answer which we have in making a difference. 

Let’s talk about ideas you have.  Let’s have fun with it.  There is only one rule.  All information provided must be positive.  There will be no discussion about what others should do and are not doing.  We just want to have fun with this and also bring meaning to the dialogue of making a difference as Brook N’ Dell Virtual Villagers are doing. 

Let’s hear from you on the call in.  I will be excited to share a moment with you on the broadcast.  Depending on the number of callers we might have to limit our time so please be brief as possible and yet provide us your key in making a difference.  We will be posting these ideas on a separate page at Brook N’ Dell.

If you have any questions before the live broadcast, contact Adele at info@inthemomentwithadele.com

Val Marshal joins me to share the journey she and her family are on as their 17 year old son battles the supreme Cancer Battle on our Broadcast.  The Blog Talk Radio Button is on the left<<<<<.  Just sit back and listen to quite a story of a Special Family with an enormous Challenge.  Val has so much to share. I will also let you know she definitely  Addison Marshallprovides us many uplifting moments on how her family has taken the positive road in this cancer battle. Val Marshall shares some background to our interview: Addison, her son, was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia on May 29, 2009. He had been complaining about his ribs hurting and x-rays proved that several were cracked. We thought his rib injury was the result of Spring football but in actuality his spleen was inflamed, thus cracking his ribs. Our Family Doctor drew blood and within 24 hours we began the Cancer Journey of our lives. Addie’s strength of character has illuminated the path and given us hope and guidance to fight this demon with integrity and patience. This is a program of strength and courage of a family who Live Each Day “In The Moment.” This is a program you will want to listen to more than once.  This broadcast shows what Resilience Living is all about.  They are definitely awarded the Resilience Living Award.  We all can learn from their actions on how to attack challenges and make a difference!

Val Marshall writes about her son, Addie, and their families journey.  Visit http://www.addisonmarshallcrushcancer.org to visit Val Marshall’s Blogs she has posted as Addie attacks his Cancer full out. What a family! What a Mission they have to battle this tremendous challenge and WIN! God’s Blessings on this Fight!  Also visit http://www.carepages.com/carepages/AddieCakeChronicles

                  Additional Note:         As the Marshall’s have been challenged and are fighting it head on the costs are extreme.  People and groups have been coming forward to help the Marshall’s in all different ways.  Many have been involved in events to raise money for Addie’s costs.  Others have come forth and deliver delicious dinners.  They want to thank all these giving people.  It truly has shown a community coming together. 

As they share all these great gifts that have extended to the Marshall’s Val wants you to know that she is an entrepreneur and owns her own organization business.  To learn more about Val’s work please visit her website.  No project is to small or too big.  Do call her if you live in the Houston area.  Her patience and caring ways can be greatly beneficial in bringing organization into your life.  So remember Val …visit her website and learn more  at http://www.prioritize2organize.net/
