Retweet

The Lily Tree is going to be seen by many at our new shop in Port Angeles, Washington.  If you are ever visiting Washington and the Olympic Peninsula we hope you will stop by.

This shop will be carrying special smilin’ packets, caps, tee shirts, and lots of smiley stickers for you to pass out to others.  The name of the shop is “The Experiosity Smilin’ Shop.”  Each quarter we will be doing different things in this little shop.  We will post our schedule on the activities.  Our opening date is around June 15, 2017.  The schedule will be right here on June 1, 2017,

Now, one thing that we will have to do is clean up some challenges.  We have had a serious hacking in our network.  All subscriptions will be deleted.  We are setting up a new subscription process that will provide the protection.  So when you receive this message in your email, you might not receive an email again until you enter a new subscription.  The deletion process in on-going as we have many subscribers however, it is the only thing we can do to provide security to our network.

We ask for your patience.  In the meantime, visit https://spreadinsmilesblog.com and https://www.experiosity.com.

Have a great weekend.  Will be back on Monday with updates on what we are doing here at Brook N’ Dell Virtual Village.

Happy Memorial Day!

Our Grand Old Flag

Traditional observance (From Wikipedia)

Many people observe Memorial Day by visiting cemetaries and memorials. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3 p.m. local time. Another tradition is to fly the flag of the United States  at half-staff from dawn until noon local time. Volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at National Cemeteries.

One of the longest-standing traditions is the running of the Indianapolis 500, an auto race which has been held in conjunction with Memorial Day since 1911. It runs on the Sunday preceding the Memorial Day holiday. The Coca-Cola 600 stock car race has been held later the same day since 1961. The Memorial Day golf event has been held on or close to the Memorial Day weekend since 1976.

Because Memorial Day is generally associated with the start of the summer season, it’s common tradition to inaugurate the outdoor cooking season on Memorial Day with a barbeque.

The National Memorial Day Concert takes place on the west lawn of the United State Capitol. The concert is broadcast on PBS and NPR. Music is performed, and respect is paid to the men and women who gave their lives for their country.

Yellowstone Here I Come!

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.

Do You Remember What You are Worth?

She can deal with stress and carry heavy burdens.

She smiles when she feels like screaming, and she sings when she feels like crying.
She cries when she’s happy and laughs when she’s afraid.
Her love is unconditional.

There’s only one thing wrong with her.
She forgets what she’s worth!

Take a Moment, think about these words and the meaning it has for you.  It definitely had an impact on me.

What is Success? Loving Who You Are?

The Moments of Success

People the world over live to see their hopes and dreams become a reality. Can we experience our successes of today and realize that this will lead us to our hopes and dreams of tomorrow?   I decided to start researching this question.  There is a quote from the Proverbs 19:8  “He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who cherishes understanding prospers.”

As a coach, I find that so many people I meet with and discuss the topic “success”  our conversation seems to revolve all around ” money ” and what freedom it can bring to our family and our professional life worth.   Can you relate to this?  During your day do you ask yourself the question,  “I want what the  Jones’ down the street have.”   Or, better yet, say, “I will be truly successful when I am better than the Jones.  This image will truly represent success.  I will feel so powerful.”

Does this scenario sound familiar to either you and your family or remind you of your friends and colleagues?  Oh to have more money to buy a bigger car, have a larger home, freedom from debt, beautiful clothes and accessories.  Or…I will have the chance to do what I love and have all of the above.  I might even travel around the world.   As the saying goes, If you’ve got it, flaunt it.”

I have been researching what authors are saying about this.   In terms of being your own boss and taking control of your life, developing a financial stream to bring you a 6 figure income is only part of it.

Success can also be thought of in terms of what we bring into our life on a daily basis.    I believe the words of “The Old Cherokee” gives us food for thought on the important ingredients in being Successful in our life.

Two Wolves Story:

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a

battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two “Wolves” inside us all.

One wolf is evil-–he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret,

greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies,

false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good —

It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,

generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The Grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which Wolf wins?”

The Elder simply replied, “The one you feed.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, dear friends, when we set out each day let us celebrate our Success with

joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy,

generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
