Maybe We Should…New Year’s Resolutions #HappyReinventing

Me? Write a New Year’s Resolution blog? You bet! Wouldn’t miss a chance like this while it’s the topic of conversation to inspire, motivate and remind you of what you’re capable of being in this lifetime.

If not now, when?

Yes, this is the same me who previously avoided putting out a blog during New Years as it was too “cliche” … I believed. So many resolutions established and unfulfilled. I just didn’t want to get into it in a New Year’s blog as I like to inspire year-round, not just once a year.

But maybe we really need to take heed of this age old tradition. After so many years of saying and resolving NOT to make any resolutions, we stop believing in the magic of simply setting our minds to something and making it happen.

That’s all it’s about, yet the repeated failures at whatever that lofty goal was causes us to eventually lose faith in ourselves and the ability to believe we have the discipline to stick to something we’re committed to.

The more that happens, we tend to give in to status quo – and our big dreams become smaller and smaller. Our visions of what we see ourselves doing becomes relegated to someone else and then we look on as an eager and wishful by-stander. Is that really what you want?

What we forget is it’s not too late to create those realities for ourselves. This year, have the courage to make one or two resolutions – make them “bite size,” achievable, attainable, then set more milestones. No need to take it all on at once.

DOORS – The Gateway to Reinvention

 

IMG_0470

Doors – they hold the promise of something new, curiosity, adventure, fresh starts, mystery. They all stand just on the other side of that door.  So close yet so far away.  Bringing two worlds together, yet part of the same. Inches apart yet so divided.

Doors separate rooms, tones, themes, experiences, activities.  They have their own distinct space and worlds yet that one door brings them together when open. Blending the visual and energy of two different spaces.  As you step through one to the other, the new environment is usually in deep contrast to the other, leaving traces of the old to the new.  The door symbolizes a gateway to something different.

The metaphor of a door captures the moment in time when we’re on the precipice of a movement, decision, opportunity. We stand in the familiar, with the vision of what’s on the other side right before us.  We can choose to walk through it, we can choose to stand in the doorway till we’re ready,  we can turn back and never cross that threshold.

Doors offer a glimpse into the future.. what’s next. The option to indulge in it are yours. Is it freedom or confinement? Future or regression? Stand still or Reinvent your life? These defining moments, whether small or large are the doorways of your life that offer you opportunity or confine you. The choice is always yours.

I always walk through those doorways, usually I run thru them, excitedly approaching what’s next. What do you do? How do you live your life?

And what does your doorway look like? Big, small. simple, ornate? Wood, iron? With windows, without? How do the doors that present themselves in your life show up? And when? Are they barriers for you? Do they stop you or invite you?

There’s a saying that when one door closes, another opens.   Do you believe this?

What’s your interpretation of the doors in your life?

“Running in Heels” – Ladies, Listen Up – This One’s For You! #HappyReinventing

A friend of mine recently referred to me as the “CEO of Running in Heels Magazine” — I laughed, thought it was cute and clever, and then realized what it really meant.

I’m sure many of you can relate to that statement and I’m officially owning it. It may be a metaphor but I can truly say I have definitely spent the last 30 years running in heels – from the day I opened the doors of my business – chasing and running after new business, running after the desire to be the best at what I do, keep everyone happy, meet our deadlines, reach our goals and build a successful life full of love, health and prosperity.

Then came a family – running to create the ideal home, running to the market, running to the home design and supply stores to get the house in livable condition and keep improving on it (for 30 years), running to have a full social life, running to get home on time, running to put a meal on the table, running to keep my man happy.

Then came my fabulous children – running from work to home and back in the early days while juggling babies, nursing, diaper changing, playtime, reading time, cuddle time…all while juggling work, deadlines, clients, business travel. Running to and from one obligation to another while running home to those sweet and slowly growing faces, hugs, intense moments of love, education and entertainment.

Then came school years – running to and from school meetings, events, conferences, functions, projects while running back to clients, office, work, airports and definitely running to airplanes. Running to get a little food, a little workout, a little playtime, and some lovin’ with my hubby.

Now I find myself running to catch my breath, running to find balance, running to find some inner peace while still juggling, running, traveling, working and running a great family and business!

Of course, as the years have gone on we find new things to run to and from, we find new passions, hobbies, social occasions to layer into our fabulous and busy lives so we just keep running and running. We never really stop to think about the fact that we’re running from here to there – physically, mentally, emotionally – we just do it, as it’s just the way we have to move through all the things we have created in our lives.

All while wearing heels…

Yes, almost every day! I’m on the short side so I always felt that heels best complimented by work attire, definitely made me feel up to the task, and when I found platform sandals for weekends…eureka!

So yes, I deserve this title – CEO of Running in Heels Magazine – I own it and wear it proudly…as do all of the women out there who are running in these same heels! All the power to us! Have we started a new movement? Better run off to figure this out and build another business vertical!!

WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

IMG_0448

I love other peoples’ stories. I see a family , a woman eating alone, a man in a biz suit, two friends chatting, a group of teenagers hanging out…and I’m curious.  Who are they, where are they from, what have they endured, who have they inspired, what’s been their contribution to humanity or community, are they happy or sad, coming or going, simple or complex, where were they born, where are they headed, what do they think about, what’s their story???

Not everything and everyone is as they appear and behind everything we see is some kind of story, anecdote, history, future, nuggets of what I deem to be interesting…

All around us there are stories – they just show up in different ways – songs, ads, social messages, movies, TV shows, photographs.

By nature, we are curious human beings and thus the ongoing interest in stories.

Everyone is a story, they are the center of their story, the Protagonist – each and everyone of us.  We bring our own self-working, emotions and experiences to all that is around us and everyone we interact with and it shapes how we perceive and experience our worlds.

The little anecdotes that are our lives are either gone unnoticed or become headlines…or somewhere in between, and they’re all little stories.

Have you ever looked at a house on your street and wondered who lives there? Watched a little old lady walking down the street and wondered what her long life sorry can tell – history, joys, observations, wisdoms, heartbreak, moments of courage?  The man sitting with his two boys having breakfast – is it just another day in their routine or is this the special monthly breakfast with divorced parents?

I’m always curious, I love to wonder and weave stories and tales in my mind and then wonder how right or wrong my hunch is about what I’m observing?

As I go about my busy day with my very busy mind, it never ceases to amaze me the room for this imaginative thought.  It’s a game of sorts and is probably the reason I don’t mind chatting with strangers.

So next time you glance at the old man crossing the road, that teenager with her friends giggling over a coffee at Starbucks, that sad lady on the phone in the middle of a shopping center, the young man at the grocery checkout, the clerk helping you at the yogurt store…everyone has a story – they’re the protagonist in their life and just maybe we’re playing a supporting role in their story.

Aren’t you a bit curious?

What’s your story? Are you living the story you want your life to be? It’s never too late to Reinvent your life in a myriad of ways.

Summer Inspires Reflection…and Reinvention

FullSizeRender

Reinvention, renewal, inspired ideas…they all have time to breed just a little more during those lazy summer afternoons when you may be taking an extra walk, sitting on a beach, hopefully even holidaying somewhere wonderful.

These are moments when we disconnect from the everyday moments that drive our every movement, the tasks and the chores of life, jobs, family, commitments and just take a deep breath – literally and metaphorically.

When you take that deep breath, that pause, that moment of reflection, what do you do with that time? What could you do with that time?  Are you using it in a quiet and important way to focus on you?

Hello, are you still in there?  It’s not such an odd question, really.  Don’t we all get so caught up in the business of life, that we don’t stop to make sure we’re on the right trajectory?

That time is yours – so use it wisely.  Are you doing what you want? Inspiring yourself to have the greatness in your life you deserve?  Loving the best way you can? Sharing the way you want? Indulging in the things you love? Nurturing your passions?

Every moment is a chance for Reinvention so never stop asking yourself if you’re happy and how to have more of what you want/need/love in your life.

Be Inspired, Get Inspired and Go For It – It’s Yours!

Have a beautiful Summer Day.

Re-Find Your Passion – Tennis Was My First Love

LIVE WITH PASSION quoteWhen I was a little girl, I learned to play tennis. My dad played semi-pro in Australia against some of the big Aussie tennis names and understood the value and fun of the game – old school tennis, clay courts, tennis whites, wood rackets.  Classic!

Lucky for me, my parents instilled that love for tennis in us kids as well.  My sisters and I loved to play and I took that much further – always had a racquet in my hand and as we moved from country to country, tennis was my sanctuary, my “go to place.”  A way to bond with new friends in new places with some common ground.

I played through high school – chose cheerleading over tennis team (yes, admitting it!), through college, and always recreationally with friends and family.

And then it stopped…just like that, life got in the way, and it wasn’t until my boys were old enough that I had to get them on the court and get a racquet in their hands too. A life skill, sport and passion that I wanted them to have.

As I started to play here and there with them, it reminded me how much I loved and missed the game and vowed every time to keep playing…but I didn’t.  Life got in the way.

They went to tennis camp every summer, played occasionally with friends and the occasional family trek to the court – 6 blocks away -happened.

I had “tennis envy” of everyone that played and still loved the game but everything else seemed to take precedent and I was doing all these other activities – Zumba, Pilates, business activities, mom jobs… but not tennis.

Fast forward – my youngest son is on the high school tennis team and for years has become an excellent player.  For the last few years when I asked him to play he refused.  Thought he was too good and didn’t want to bother with me!

Hmmm – that got me going and when my husband asked me to sign up with him for a tennis clinic, without thinking I said “yes.”

That first week I played five times, enlisted a coach and for three months I have been fully re-engaged in what was my first love and passion – tennis.

I cannot tell you how incredible it feels to be reconnected …

My scheduling priorities have shifted from “I can’t exercise to because I have a business dinner,” to “I can’t do that business dinner or drinks…because I’m playing tennis!”  As a result, I’m also finding lots of new tennis partners – business colleagues and friends – that we can now socialize over a game, rather than the traditional lunch, drinks, dinner plans.  Love that!

What’s your passion that you’d love to rekindle?  What’s that one thing you keep saying you want to do or revisit that you once loved? Was it learning a language? Playing the guitar? Painting? Indulging in some hobby that made you happy?

This Reinvention is a tremendous antidote to boredom, a mid-life crisis, a yearning to stir things up in your life, a desire to be happy and just have fun,  so if you have that itch and feel the need to mix things up a bit and nurture your passions, give it a try – you’ll be amazed at the results you feel and how it affects so much of your life. #GoHaveFun

You CAN Have Your Cake And Eat It Too!!! Go Ahead – Reinvent Your Life – Just How You Want It!

Since it’s my Birthday week, it’s quite fitting to share this post …as I will be having my cake and eating it too!!

“You CAN have your cake and eat it too!”  We’ve all heard that expression throughout our lives and many have come to accept it.  But have you ever thought about what it really means, and why CAN’T you have your cake and eat it too?

Think about it – the expression implies that you can have your cake – but what? You’re supposed to just stare at it and NOT eat it?

When it comes to Life Reinvention – I’m a firm believer that you MUST have your cake, and  you MUST eat it too!!

You are entitled to have what you want in life – you have the power and your responsibility is to use it, own it and grab life by the horns and make it what you want.

No wonder so many people are lost and stuck in a life that they don’t want to be living.  They’ve been brought up believing that they are not to indulge in the things in life that make them happy and that you can only have “so much” but not the whole enchilada!

That’s absurd!  Why on earth can you not do what you love, be with who you want to be, create the hobbies and interests that you want to cultivate, build the life that is your optimal existence.  If you’re not hurting others, and what you want is not at someone else’s expense, you deserve to pursue all that makes you happy.

Are you afraid to go after it? Do you think you may not succeed? You won’t be able to attain it? Is the risk not worth the reward?

You need to prioritize yourself and begin to create the framework for what you want.  These can be small reinventions – baby steps towards the bigger goal.  But start setting your sights on what you want from your life and be clear about how to get there. I often talk about creating that roadmap – without it you just won’t get there or be able to chip away at the obstacles with clarity if you can’t define the path for yourself.

You want to have your cake AND eat it too? Then go for it!

Here’s what I do to stay the course, after I’ve identified something that I want to embrace (or tackle) as a new part of  “project me”…

Every night I go to bed, thinking about the few major things I want to accomplish the next day (or on Sundays, for the next week – in which case I write it down.)  Sometimes they are personal goals, some are business goals and tactical plans…. Some are family plans and projects… I’m not a  “type A” person, or so I’d like to think, but I find it keeps my head organized and clutter free, and it helps me get through the things I want.

We all  juggle a lot and keeping all the plates in the air is a fine skill – fun if you really master the art – a daily challenge – but fun, nonetheless!  Weekends are for the loftier goals but squeezing in some of the soft and precious stuff into the middle of a work week is good for the soul.  Sit back in the middle of a busy day – close your eyes – take a deep breath and clear your mind.  Allow yourself that focus and clarity to indulge and get back to “you”.

When was the last time you stopped and put yourself at the front of the line?  You’re entitled…

Yes, you’re entitled to have your cake and go ahead…EAT IT TOO!!!

And to quote the amazing new campaign by CADILLAC – #DareGreatly

“Our Greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we do.” – Confucius

Binge Watching – the Latest Reinvention of Entertainment Consumption

Over the holidays you’ll have time on your hands to do the things you’ve been talking about for months – one of my favorites is Binge Watching some of those great shows that I couldn’t quite fit into the schedule while juggling work, clients, family and everything else in my hectic life.

So now we have a few weeks of down time to indulge, what’s going to be your pleasure? Have you thought about the whole notion of Binge Watching?

This is the Reinvention of something we’ve been doing for a long time. The thirst for engagement in a good story and its characters is the reason we’ve loved to read since the beginning of the written word, only now we have new platforms and media on which to consume these stories.

Binge watching is like reading a book. All these shows are now at your disposal on the many televisions and gadgets we have at our fingertips, and just like a book that you can read all in one seating, you can now watch 8-12 episodes one after another. It’s the old fashioned way of consuming entertainment and why books have been around and enjoyed forever. Binge Watching is just a little easier and certainly entertaining.

Has Binge Watching taken a page from good ole fashion reading? I believe it has. Chapter after chapter – episode after episode; you can keep reading and reading as you get immersed in the story, the characters and get to shut out the rest of your real world while you delve deeper into the story-telling. That said, nothing replaces a great book!!!

Is anything ever really new? In the marketing business we constantly borrow from other industry practices to make something feel new and different.  That’s all that’s happened here, yet no one has recognized the similarities between these two entertainment habits. So whether it’s NETFLIX, HULU, SHOWTIME, HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, A&E, FOX, Amazon or any other great platforms – go find that series everyone’s been talking about and take some time off from the real world to enjoy a little!  Whether it’s Binge Watching…or Binge Reading – just indulge yourself in great story-telling.

Reinventing our world …what’s old is new.  Where else might we see this?

What will you indulge in during these holidays?

Share your thoughts and comments and what’s your favorite series that you’ve Binge Watched?

Enjoy and #HappyReinventing

OPEN THE NEXT CHAPTER – Kick-start your Reinvention

HOW TO GET STARTED, HOW TO ACT ON IT, HOW TO LIVE IT!

You’ve weighed all the critical issues, banged your head against the wall, complained to everyone you know, you walk around grumpy or frustrated but you’re not sure why. You know you need to do something, you’re just not quite sure what that “something” is.

It’s time to Reinvent Your Life, so, now what do you do?

Let’s start here…what were you doing when you were five years old, maybe 12, perhaps 17? When were you truly happy?

What did you dream about doing when you grow up? A rock star, an artist, a fireman, a dancer…

Dig deep, close your eyes and think of what you used to imagine your life to be …”one day.”

The little rock star grew up, was told to go to school, learn something that would help make you money one day and get a job so you could help support the family…the guitar that you might have played as a teenager started to gather dust and ultimately got sold in the garage sale or put away in the attic (figuratively and literally).

So here you are, 25 years later, the lawyer, chained to your desk, your life duties, commitments, financial responsibilities…now your kid’s dreams perhaps?

I ask you this – when was the last time you picked up a guitar?

Did you ever consider how you’d feel if you bought yourself a guitar? The thrill of nurturing your decadent, ridiculous, childish whim? Ok, so maybe you’ll not become the next Eddie VanHalen but what if you took guitar lessons – get a book, remind yourself how to play; maybe get some “like-minded” buddies together and put a weekend garage band together.

Sound ridiculous? FABULOUS! It should!! This will nurture your soul in a way you can’t imagine, and clearly haven’t dared to dream of doing!

And they wonder why people go through a mid-life crisis?  It doesn’t have to be a crisis – it’s called nurturing your soul and indulging your passions!

Perhaps when you go to work on Monday, you’ll have a skip in your step or a smile on your face that just wasn’t there before.

The goal here is to create balance, dig deep and tap into the things that stir you and give you a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction, stimulation and simply make you happy while getting back in touch with your true self.

Hello, are you still in there?

Ask yourself that question and look back to that moment when you dreamed.  It’s priceless…

THE THINGS TO DO:

–     Keep notes on the things that make you smile in the course of your day – track it in a little notebook —

  • the things that make your heart sing
  • the places you like to go
  • the smells you like
  • the sounds that you like…all of these are little signs of the things in life you want to surround yourself with.
  • go somewhere and daydream
  • get magazines of all sorts – flip thru them and pull out anything that gets your attention – a headline, a chair, the color of a wall, a favorite shoe, a look, a font style a profound statement…collect things that excite or interest you
  • do you see a pattern, similarities – anything that inspires a “maybe I could/should” thought?
  • do it again a few weeks later
  • look in the classified ads – ideas
  • create a budget of your life – What do you need – then write it down – what you want – include what you have to take care of and the things you’d like to include – aka “indulgences” – i.e. vacations, college savings, shopping, sushi one time a week, language lessons…
  • establish the connection between need-want-attain through happiness
  • believe it, project it, create it, visualize and then detail the process to get there
  • the success, the challenges
  • the ideas, the tactics
  • the exit strategy for your current situations

You’re entitled so there’s no need to deprive yourself of the life you want. Take care of the ones around you, don’t abandon them in what might be considered a selfish aspiration, but take the baby steps to create your own happiness. If it’s a bold Reinvention that doesn’t affect others, have the courage to go for it.

  • Sunshine? Go outside!
  • Food? Go get it!
  • Work? Do more of it!
  • Leisure Time? Create more of it!
  • People? Invite them into your life more!
  • Music? Turn it on!

The answers to these  questions help you focus on the things you love – bringing them to the forefront of your mind – articulating and identifying the things that make you feel simply fabulous!!

Always have a vision of the future you want!

Enjoy and #HappyReinventing

Share your stories with me as and let me know what little or big Reinventions you’ve created in your life.  I’d love to include them in the www.ReinventionExchange.com website and Huffington Post blogs, and we’re seeking great stories for my book and TV show and Web Series in development.

IF I COULD, I WOULD… TIME TO REINVENT YOUR LIFE?

How would you finish that sentence? Do find yourself thinking this often?

Would have, should have, could have… Do you say that to yourself? Do others say it to you?

Is that how you truly want to live your life?

Seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years…they fly by and sometimes you’re inclined to wake up and say “where did the time go?”

Do you want to live a life of few regrets? Do you want to live with passion and fulfill some of your dreams? Well it won’t happen all on its own. You have to consciously create your reality and your life to make it what you want.

In a bad relationship? Sure you can live with it for a while and maybe continue to be somewhat happy. Maybe you’re both better off moving on and creating an even better life with someone more caring/engaged. If time has changed both of you or one of you and your relationship has shifted, it may be hard to admit to it but if you both deserve happiness, maybe that’s ok.

What about a job that isn’t quite what you’ve dreamed about ? You keep putting off the work involved in finding a better career or job thinking that “it will never happen anyway” or maybe you “don’t deserve it.” But you do deserve it and if it means finding a passion in life and seeking ways to make money from that business, there are ways to get there. So, what exactly are you doing about it?

Change is never easy, but Reinvention and evolution can be really fun. Don’t think of it as leaving other things behind, rather as a chance to take lessons and findings from where you’ve been and that all those have been a springboard to what’s next. Don’t have regrets for what you’ve been doing in any of these places in your life – work, relationships, spiritual, health – they’ve made you who you are today and led to this point of clarity and inspiration to create something even greater.

If you take the time to focus on the parts of your life that are worthy of a little Reinvention, you can dig into it – call it “PROJECT ME” and go for it.

Come up with your Action List – pros, cons, things you have to do, people who may be a part of it, a timeline, goals, milestones, and ideas that will get you there.

Write it down – Buy a great little notebook and make it your place to check in with daily. Create tabs or sections for each category you want to focus on and the project details listed above. You can use a computer or notepad on your smartphone, but writing on paper in a little notebook that you can always have with you will give you access to it all the time and actually is more visceral – connecting at a deeper level with you, thus helping you to actualize it.

Make a date with yourself – pick a time each day that you know you can stick to – wake up 15 min. earlier, 15 min before bedtime, 15 min of your lunch hour. Whatever else you’ve been doing, make this your new priority – “PROJECT ME” should be your priority – if you don’t put yourself first, who will?

Use this time for research, jotting down ideas and plans, making lists of how you’re going to accomplish your goals, write down the challenges you foresee, how you’ll overcome them.

Set the intention of what you want to the point that it’s so clear you can feel it, smell it, taste it and help manifest it becoming your new reality.

Remember, many months ago in a previous blog, I shared with you that if you have a road map but don’t establish where you want to go, how are you going to get “there”? If you don’t know what/where “there” is…it just can’t appear in front of you. A road map is literally that – a series of moves and directions to where you want to end up.

Reinvention and evolution in your life are inspired, creative, exciting times – and they’re YOURS – you don’t need to rely on ANYONE else to make a decision for you and set the course for this process and journey.

I’ve been juggling a fabulous company for 26 years, an incredible family and tremendous friends. My life is wonderful and every day I wonder what else I can fill my life with – the world and our lives have so much to offer us.

My Reinvention (one of the many and ongoing) is incorporating this Reinvention “business” into my existing life, all while running a successful marketing/branding/sponsorship agency for global clients.  Making time and effort to make this happen isn’t easy – as anyone who knows me will tell you – but it’s worth it. I am writing blogs, a book, doing interviews, creating a TV project, looking at brand extensions and other ways to bring these stories and this inspiration to thousands. It’s my “hobby” for now but could one day be a media company and brand that will deliver more than just smiles to others.

If you had the chance to dig in and create your Reinvention, what would it be?
