Emma's First Birthday

 

Today we are celebrating Emma’s first birthday!

I am so excited to share this day with you! Make sure and look at her tutu. It is adorable.

We are having such a good time. I am loving my life and feeling very blessed to have her in it.

I wanted to share this moment with you.

We live each day in moments of time. Make the most of each moment because you will never get them back.

Children are Impressionable, and We Can Make a Difference

 

My lesson from Emma today is how important it is to start working with your kids about discrimination at an early age. 

There is so much happening right now with discrimination: race, color, creed, black lives matter, religious differences, sexual preference, and these are only scratching the surface. 

We have been celebrating Pride month as you can see. I also found an amazing book called Dream Big Little one which is about African American women and what they have contributed.

This kind of influence can go a long way. Talk to your kids and treat them equally because we are all ONE and equal in the eyes of the Universe. 

With Emma, I am loving her as much as I can and setting an example for her when she is only 12 months by choosing what I read to her and giving her a rainbow flag.

We have so much influence over children. Mother Teresa said, “The way you help heal the world is that you start with your own family.”

You can change the world by showing children how to love and accept others. Consider how you can positively influence a child today.

Plan for Tomorrow, But Live for Today

 

I‌ ‌am‌ ‌back‌ ‌with‌ ‌you‌ ‌today‌ ‌with‌ ‌my‌ ‌beautiful‌ ‌niece,‌ ‌Emma.‌ ‌She‌ ‌has‌ ‌another‌ ‌lesson‌ ‌for‌ ‌me‌ ‌today.‌ ‌I‌ ‌call‌ ‌it‌ ‌“Planning‌ ‌for‌ ‌tomorrow‌, ‌but‌ ‌living‌ ‌for‌ ‌today.”‌ ‌

It‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌for‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌look‌ ‌toward‌ ‌the‌ ‌future,‌ ‌to‌ ‌keep‌ ‌making‌ ‌plans‌ ‌and‌ ‌taking‌ action‌ ‌steps‌ ‌to‌ ‌get‌ ‌us‌ ‌closer‌ ‌to‌ ‌making‌ ‌our‌ ‌dreams‌ ‌a‌ ‌reality,‌ ‌BUT‌ ‌we‌ ‌only‌ ‌have‌ ‌
today.‌ ‌We‌ ‌only‌ ‌have‌ ‌this‌ ‌moment.‌ ‌

For‌ ‌example,‌ ‌babies‌ ‌crawl‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌short‌ ‌period‌ ‌of‌ ‌time.‌ ‌I‌ ‌did‌ ‌not‌ ‌know‌ ‌this‌ ‌with‌ ‌my‌ ‌first‌ ‌child.‌ ‌When‌ ‌I‌ ‌had‌ ‌my‌ ‌second‌ ‌child,‌ ‌I‌ ‌did‌ ‌better‌ ‌at‌ ‌cherishing‌ ‌that‌ ‌time.‌ ‌

That‌ ‌is‌ ‌where‌ ‌Emma‌ ‌is‌ ‌right‌ ‌now,‌ ‌so‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌cherishing‌ ‌every‌ ‌crawling‌ ‌moment.‌ ‌ ‌

Emma’s‌ ‌lesson‌ ‌for‌ ‌today‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌continue‌ ‌to‌ ‌plan‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌future‌ ‌and‌ ‌take‌ ‌your‌ ‌action ‌steps,‌ ‌but‌ ‌live‌ ‌for‌ ‌today‌ ‌because‌ ‌you‌ ‌never‌ ‌know‌ ‌if‌ ‌it‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌your‌ ‌last.‌ ‌You‌...

Slow Down and Enjoy the Moment

Uncategorized Jul 08, 2020
 

I was given another opportunity to get a lesson from Emma today. She is teaching me how to SLOW DOWN and enjoy every moment. I get so busy with my work that I forget to take a breather sometimes. It is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of life and miss the most beautiful moments.

So today, Emma and I are swinging in the hammock. We are on the floor playing with toys, and having a great time!

It is so important for us to slow down and enjoy our days because we never know which will be our last.

The question I would like to pose to you today is: What can you do to slow down and be in the moment?
We only have this moment. I want to encourage you to make the most of it.

How Important Is It?

Uncategorized Jul 01, 2020
 

I had so much fun making the video last week with my beautiful niece, Emma. I have decided to do a four part series on what Emma is teaching me.

Today I want to go back to one of my favorite sayings, “How important is it?”

For me, it was not that important to do my hair or get dressed up for this video because I could spend more time with her. It was also not important today for me to get my house perfectly clean because I would rather spend more time with her. I only get her for a few short weeks and I want to make the most of that time.

So what I would like to bring to you today is to think about “What is most important to you?” and to consider placing that as your priority. (As you can see in the video, Emma agrees.)

Take a few minutes to meditate on what you would like your priorities to be for the day, the week, and this year. We can put what is most important first and everything else will fall beautifully into place.

What is There For Me to Do?

 

So many of us are falling into victim mode. We are complaining and focusing on what we are not able to do. We are only focusing on the terrible experiences in our life and not keeping our eye out for how we can serve. 

I get it. As a sign language interpreter, I have not worked since March 9th because of shelter in place. I also have not been able to present as a life coach. 

BUT I have been given the opportunity to watch my niece Emma. She is beautiful, and she is perfect. Because she lives so far away, I would not have the time to bond and spend time with her. But because of this tragic pandemic, I get to fill my days with this beautiful, baby girl.

I know we are having a hard time with COVID-19, and yes, everything is different, but we could look at our situation from another perspective. 

Instead of being in the victim mode, we could step back and ask, “What is there for me to do?” 

For you, it might be to make a phone call or wearing a mask. Only you know the answer. 

When we contribute, it takes us out of the victim mode and put us in a more peaceful state of mind.

So, what is there for you to do today?

Overcoming Fear

 

I want to talk to you about a tough subject…fear.

We often experience this in our lives through worry and anxiety.

The good news is fear is simply on the border of what we currently know. It doesn’t mean we can’t. It only means we haven’t taken that next step. 

Fear is feedback letting us know we are on a new green growing edge and are stepping out of our comfort zone. 

COURAGE is moving ahead in spite of our fear. So today I want you to wrap your arms around fear and say THANK YOU because it means you are growing into so much more.

You are getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new. Instead of going into fear, go into gratitude and say THANK YOU.

You are taking that courageous step to create a life you love. 

Question for the day: Where can I move ahead in spite of my fear?

You’ve got this!

What is Most Important to You?

 

With every change in life, we have to build again from those hard impacts that come at us. A divorce, a loss of a job, a serious illness or maybe something like COVID-19 is what rocks our world. It is the Universe’s kick in the butt to get us back to reality and decide what is most important to us. 

What is most important to you?

Is it more time with your family, so you can go to your kid’s activities. Maybe it’s bringing in more financial abundance, so you can FINALLY go on that vacation you have promised yourself. 

When you are breathing your last breath, I do not want you to look back with any regrets. 

Today, get in alignment with your values and what is most important to you. 

So your question of the day is, “What is more important to you?”

Have an amazing day!

Who Do I Trust?

 

Question of the day: How do we know who to trust?

You turn on the TV and one station says these people are right and you turn the channel and tell us another group is right. There are different ideas and variances, so who do you decide who to follow?

You have been given something amazing and that is called your INTUITION. You can tap into that to get the answers from within yourself. Don’t just blindly follow others. Don’t only look at Facebook. Instead do some research on the topic and then get quiet. 

Get still and really feel how your body is reacting and listen to what your mind is telling you because you have the answers. We don’t want to get the answers outside of ourselves. We want to go inward and dig deep to hear what our own mind is telling us. 

So today if you are confused with the media and don’t know who to trust, take some deep breathes, sit down and do a little meditation and ask yourself “WHAT FEELS RIGHT TO ME?” 

Keep listening to your intuition because you have the power within you to make the best choice.

This is Dr. Laura Cole with Inspirational Outcomes. I hope you have an amazing day!

Be Easy on Yourself

 

Good Morning! This week I am continuing to respond to questions people have asked me to talk about what they are dealing with during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Many individuals are being down on themselves because they feel like they are not doing enough. They feel like they are not staying up to the standards that they had been living pre-corona virus. 

I want to say that is cruel and unloving to yourself. We are in a different time. We are going through a different experience, so love yourself. Maybe it’s time to sit back and enjoy your time. 

I got a wonderful meme today that says…"You will get to know yourself during the hardest times, but you probably won’t recognize it until hindsight" - Stacy Martin

I love that because it made me think about when I went through one of my worst breakups. Even though I had worked hard MY ENTIRE LIFE (looking back I was probably a work-aholic) for a year, I just sat. 

I still got up and did what I needed to do to take care of my kids, but I wasn’t up until midnight every night and then working again in the morning at 5 am. I was so down on myself and then I had a revelation.

During this time because I am not working in my office so hard, I’m spending more time with my kids. Which I have always said is my number one priority, but I found that work was taking over.

Right now, maybe you are being down on yourself because you think you are not doing enough, but realize what you are doing. You are having self-discovery. You are discovering what you would truly love to be doing during this life. Deciding if you really want to be in this relationship.

So be easy on yourself today. In hindsight, it’s going to be okay. Enjoy today and take care of yourself.

This is Dr. Laura Cole with Inspirational Outcomes. I hope you have an amazing day!
