God’s creation…

There is nothing more beautiful than catching a rainbow after some rain. God’s creation, nothing more beautiful.

Here, then, are a few of my random shots.

 

Seeing a rainbow instantly makes me smile.  Do you?

Until later.. ciao

It’s only my opinion…

Have you ever been shopping minding your own business and out of nowhere a random person approaches you and ask your opinion?  Do you lie? Are you honest?

Well, today was that day — while I was browsing the shoe section a woman taps me on the shoulder and ask if I had a few minutes to help her.  “Sure”, I said – she had two pairs of shoes in her hands.  One was a wedge with a strange flower pattern on the heel in mustard and the other pair was a wooden heel sandal in brown that ties at the ankle.  I immediately told her the wooden sandals were nicer but then she said “Really, you don’t like these wedges? (holding them up to my face) I’ve been looking for this color a while.”  I gave her a blank stare and told her “No, I don’t like them but if she really liked them to buy them because spring was around the corner.” I guess I wasn’t clear enough or perhaps she was trying to change my mind because then she modeled them for me.  My answer was still a definite NO.  Maybe I should have said yes but then it wouldn’t be fair to her – those wedges were horrendous.  I didn’t feel bad, it’s only my opinion. 🙂

A little while later, I was looking at some jeans when another woman ask for my opinion. (I’m feeling like a Fashionista) She holds up a size 8 and a size 10 pair of jeans and ask me which one would be better.  (Inside voice:HUH?) This is what she asks, “Should I get a size 10 if I’m trying to lose weight (but look – they are stretchy) so maybe I should get the size 8 because I’m planning of losing 10 lbs – should I get the Calvin Klein or Michael Kors?” WHAT!? Excuse me?  I was completely at a loss of words – after a few more rants she answered her own question.  I was like this woman is nuts — who buys clothes smaller because they are planning on losing weight? That’s absurd.  Needless to say, I quickly left that section shaking my head.  Some people are so strange…LOL

I’m also guilty… HA! 

A couple of weeks ago I was shopping for boots and while I was looking in the mirror modeling (lol)  – a couple with their daughter were passing by and the wife said, “Those are nice.” So I stopped them and asked which ones they thought look better. (I’m not shy)  I was wearing one knee-high suede boot and one all leather boot underneath the knee.  The wife said the knee-high and the husband said the all leather.  Then the wife looks at me and says, “Listen to him.”  I thought that was hilarious – the leather boots were my first choice as well.  When in doubt ask a man… :wink wink:

At the end of the day, there is absolutely nothing wrong with giving or receiving an opinion if asked.  Why not!?  Just be honest….

Do you have any stories?

In light of recent events…

Who knew that my words would have such an impact? A couple of days ago my life was the vocal focus of some people and I got wind of it. Gossip travels at lightning speed.  After being almost electrocuted I did what I do best… I took my thoughts and wrote them on Facebook and it even inspired the quick rant [Sick and tired…].  Needless to say, it struck a nerve for some.  Feeling guilty? Must be if they are reacting defensively, wouldn’t you agree?

Words are some of the most powerful and important things I know… Language is the tool of love and the weapon of hatred.  It’s the bright red warning flag of danger – and the stone foundation of diplomacy and peace.

I hate when I hear friends say, “I’m an owner of a business and you take more time off than I do.”  Seriously!?

Listen up folks, everyone lives the life they want.  If you are an owner of a successful business and choose not to take time off, then you need to take a step back and re-organize within your structure.  It’s no ones fault that you don’t have time for vacation.  Words of advice:  When you die, your casket will not be filled with the money you were saving for a rainy day.  Enjoy your life NOW.  Have some fun and enjoy the fruits of your labor. During the process, always remember to LIVE AND LET LIVE!

 

Until later…

Have a fabulous weekend!

Is your house made of Glass?

People who live in glass houses should not cast stones. Over and over I hear the same people complaining, criticizing, and judging others when they have so much to fix in their own glass house.  I can’t help but ask, Why? What do you care what others do or don’t do? (Can you hear the silence?) No surprise there…

Why not take a step back perhaps outside your glass house and take a close look inside… Do you see what I see? If not, take off your shades and open your eyes.  Don’t be afraid my friend.  When you cast stones don’t be surprised if your house shatters first.  Just a thought… 😉 😉

What advice can you give someone who won’t listen?

Flashback Friday : Tebow moment

While scrolling through my pictures, I can across one that I would love to share with you all.  It’s me “Tebowing”  (not certain if I’m doing it right).  😉

I’m sure you all have heard of Tim Tebow.  If not, click on my link for a little more information.  http://wp.me/p1XKUk-h8

His story is quite amazing!

It took something as simple as taking a knee and saying a silent prayer to be caught by fans and fanatics alike and it drew so much attention they started calling it “Tebowing”. Simply amazing…   I can’t wait to see what he has in store next NFL Season.  😉 😉

Happy Friday!  Have fun, be safe, and give thanks!

Flashback Friday: Random Sketch

A couple of years ago, the hubs and I were having coffee on Lincoln Road at Segafredo.  Little did we know that a few tables over an artist was drawing our picture.  Once he was done, he walked over asked our names and handed us the finished drawing.

We were amazed and in awe.  Needless to say, we gave the artist $20.00.  It was a memorable and fun night!

What’s on your mind?

Have you ever asked someone, “What’s on your mind?” and their immediate reply was “Nothing.”  What did you think?  How could they not be thinking about anything if they seem lost in thought, right?  What could be going on in their head?  Hello, wake up in there.  What’s on your mind?  Talk to me…

Do people really want to know what’s on your mind?  Think about it for a minute.  59, 58, 57, 56… are you still thinking?  Well don’t think about it anymore, your answer is probably, No.  You will never fully disclose everything that’s on your mind.  I know it, you know it, but maybe they will never know it. HA!

Imagine these two scenarios:

You ask, “What’s on your mind?”

A person having a good day might say, “I’m thinking about how great my life is, the stars align every night and all is well.”

You: That’s great!

A person having a bad day might say, “Do you really want to know what’s on my mind? Well, since the moment I woke up my day started bad, I stepped on dog poop, slipped on pee, hurt my knee, bite my tongue, had a flat, was late to work, caught my finger on the door, spilled my coffee, missed my deadline, forgot my lunch, misplaced my keys, my husband is a jerk, couldn’t find the car, broke my phone, forgot to call aunt Marie for her birthday, and forgot to pick up the dry cleaners.”  FML !@#!&

You: Oh wow, sorry! Mental note: Never ask this person again…

Never ask a person what’s on their mind unless you sincerely want to know but be ready if you open a flood gate of thoughts….

“Things aren’t the way they are, they’re the way you are” 😉
