Banjo Inspiration

Recently, I discovered the song “Going to Mars” by Judah and the Lion. I LOVE THE SONG. The sound is great (never thought I’d rock to a banjo, but they have some amazing songs that make me do just that), and the lyrics are just phenomenal.

Huge reminder to dream big! We can do anything. I believe that 100% and I am grateful for reminders in the most uncanny of places 🙂

One word

A few years ago, I discovered this book:

I loved it! The idea is each year, choose a word (rather than a resolution) that you want your life/year to be about. In the past I have chosen “Inspire” and “growth”. This year I choose “serenity.” I love the idea of picking a word that will serve as a theme for the year. This year, I discovered this: http://www.my intent.org

It’s a way to put your word into use. You “stamp” your word (using chisel type letters and a hammer) into a gold or silver token and put it on a bracelet, keychain, necklace, etc.

I am grateful for new ways that help me stay inspired, keep me on course for living my purpose!

Happy 2018!!

Grateful for Gratitude

As we near the end of the year, I wanted to make a distinct effort to sincerely thank all my amazing patients. I am so grateful for them allowing me to be their family’s Chiropractor, it truly is the best job in the entire universe.

I have also found that the more I make this effort, with a sincere thanks, a hug, or whatever means makes the most sense… I feel better and better in side.

Gratitude grows the heart of the grateful one 😉

 

Happy Holidays and I am SOOOOO thankful for all my patients, readers, co-workers and friends!

Reminders to focus

This morning, as I was writing a chapter titled “Your Monkey Mind.” I was reminded of all the information we are bombarded with every day. I did a bit of research via my good friend Google and found this article: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/creativity-without-borders/201405/the-myth-multitasking.

It discusses the myth of the positive aspects of multi-tasking. In actuality, multi-tasking is really a whole bunch of starts and stops on different activities. It is not smooth in any way. The article discusses an experiment: write two lines on a piece of paper. Have someone time you (or Google an on-line stopwatch and use that).

Start the timer On the top line write out numbers 1-27. Then on the bottom line write out the letters A-Z. Record the final time.

Now draw two lines again. This time, write top line and bottom line one at a time. I.e: Write 1 on the top line then A on the bottom, 2 on the top, B on the bottom. Simple, right? I bet if you do this activity, you will more than double the time it took to complete the first activity.

It is a good exercise to remind ourselves to FOCUS. So that is what I am working on today, focusing 100% to the task at hand. Focus 100% on the person I have been given the opportunity to serve. Focus on the here and now 🙂

Conversations

I am so grateful for the wonderful conversations I get to have each morning: with my wife, my children, friends and colleagues. As part of my morning routine, I have some quiet time to prepare for the day, and I speak to some great friends/colleagues and we discuss what we are going to work on in order to better serve our patients. I am thankful for the time, the connection and the ability to set the stage to an amazing day!

 

What a trip!

This past weekend, my wife and I joined 4 other chiropractic couples at an amazing house in Cabo San Lucas. We had an unbelievable time! We “talked shop”, laughed, relaxed, recharged, ate (a lot of) great food and connected as individuals. It was a lot of fun. I am thankful that we were able to attend! I am thankful for the people who came with us (old friends and new). I am thankful for the beautiful world we live in. I am thankful for my amazing wife whom I adore! I am thankful!
