#35 Summer Berry Picking- Happiness in Eye of Beholder

Monday, August 6th, 2012

My friend and I had a wonderful afternoon picking saskatoon berries. We both were raised on  farms so it was nostalgic to chat about the times we picked when we were growing up. With purple stained fingers and happy hearts we brought our treasures home. I have two pies cooling on my counter and the rest of the berries are in the freezer where I hope I can resist them until winter hits.

My husband asked how we could stand the heat and I thought about it and said ” I didn’t even notice.” When you do things that are fun, time and physical conditions are often forgotten.  It was a moment for me to consider what it is I love to do and then actually make plans to incorporate at least one of those activities into my daily routine. I’m going to try.

What do you do, just for you? I’m curious.

I Got It! #18 Want To Be Inspired?

I just chatted with a fellow writer Erica Jefferson. She was interviewing me for one of her upcoming shows. She was delightful. Her voice was animated and full of life and I loved her accent. Funny thing, she asked me where I was from as she could hear my accent too! Made me think how quickly we draw impressions, even when we can’t see a person.

What message are we giving off when we speak to someone? Are we enthusiastic and engaged? Are we good listeners or are we waiting for our turn to talk? Interesting thoughts for a Monday.

If you would like to learn more about Erica you can go to her website at http://www.beinspired-online.com/home/meet-the-founder/

Happy Monday!
