Getting Ready For…

02/14/10 – 10 Minutes of Exercise (Dancing) – 7,243 Steps (found pedometer) whoo hoo!

Good morning Mintdom,

I have a busy week this week, both at work and at home.  I am heading to California on Friday to attend a convention. I am excited for a couple of reasons.  First, I get to spend 6 days with my sister, Nancy who is also going, and second, this is my first time at the Keller Williams Realty Family Reunion.  You know how it is when you are getting ready to leave town; there are a million-and-one things to do and a lot on my mind – hence the early posting this morning. I am a little nervous about all the walking, but I am wearing good shoes and bringing Motrin. LOL!

Jeepers – my mind is going in a hundred directions right now. I am excited for Friday, and it is ONLY Monday!  It is hard to focus so I am making lists of what I need to do a personal list, work list, and packing list.  I learned to make lists from my dad; he is the champion of lists.  I think that once I get it all down on paper, my mind will slow down.  I already feel better just writing this morning.  Maybe that is the cure to my insomnia – just get up and write.  LOL

Here is a GREAT video if you need some motivation to get ready to do whatever it is that you need to do today. What are you getting ready for in your life today? Are you prepared?

AffirMINTion: I have prepared for the day!

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

My mom says that even though she is awake, I can stay snuggled next to her, and I LIKE IT!

Life is Minty Fresh!

Good morning Mintdom,


I took an unannounced break during Thanksgiving; it was great, AND I am happy to be back.  I have Toastmasters this morning so this will be short.  I had a nice holiday.  I spent three nights at my sister’s house pre holiday and over the holiday.  I am so fortunate to have a close family, and I love spending time with my mom and my sisters.  While I was away, my dad worked on my mouse problem.  The mouse is either smarter then peanut butter or left when it heard that I was bringing in my hit man!  LOL!  In any case, I am hoping it is gone. 


I did keep track of my steps, and made a stab at keeping a food journal, but did not keep track of keeping track! LOL!  It is all good.  I learned some good stretches from my sister, and I think it is already helping my back (I had a growing back pain issue over the holiday, hence the low step counts).  Knee and back problems – yikes – I better hurry and get healthy!


“Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishMINTs.” –Jim Rohn


Well, I do not think that Jim Rohn called them accomplishMINTs, but I could not resist! I would like to add that discipline also gives you stability. Although, I loved my little vacation – it is good to wake up this morning, knowing exactly what I needed to do.  I already did my stretches, took a shower, almost finished writing Mintdom, and then I will be off to Toastmasters.  What a wonderful way to start my day.


AffirMINTion: **I love my journey!


Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.


Life is good.


** Hint:  I write my AffirMINTions on 3×5 cards; they are great reminders.  I have them at work, home and normally in my purse.


Happy Birthday to our fearless leader, Tipper Williams!  I am fortunate to be able to include Tipper as one of my friends.  Tipper is one of the smartest, energetic, bold, professional, most beautiful, and fun women I know.  Tipper is the director of the Virginia Region of Keller Williams Realty. She has already made a HUGE impact in Virginia and Tipper has only just begun – Stay Tuned.  I hope for a day filled with lots of love and laughter – happy birthday, Tipper.
