Happy Friday my friends!!
This morning finds me as the plenary speaker at a conference on a day I had planned on being only a participant. A scheduling problem on short notice with the original speaker resulted in a need. I actually said yes before I realized I would be speaking to everyone at the WHOLE conference. I have written about the importance of saying yes and that is what I did. Although not as prepared as I would like to be, I’ve reviewed my materials and am going for it!
As a result of time constraints, this week I’m simply sharing a few of my favorite reads. Check out some of my favorite bloggers and
How many times have you had a party or event and been upset on who wasn’t there rather than be grateful for who was there? I love this post from Lindsay as it is a reminder that we need to focus upon the present and be grateful for what is in front of us. I know there have been times in my life I have spent energy over who didn’t appear rather than enjoy the company of who was. Over the past few years I have had friends appear at events to support and hear me. On Thursday, a former coworker said she would have come to the conference just to hear me (the ceu’s were secondary). Support like this is invaluable and priceless.
There is much talk about the need for everyone to have multiple income streams. However, the emphasis needs to be on having careers that not only provide an income but feed and fuel our passion. Take some time today to consider where you are at in your career and where you want to go.
Since we are talking about two careers, ask yourself if the fear of succeeding is holding you back. It’s hard to believe but many of us worry that we could be too successful. Many others worry they do not know what they would do if they reached their goals. Be proud of what you have accomplished.
The Kentucky Derby is one week away and I am always so proud of my state. As always, this time of year has a plethora of fantastic articles about Kentucky, Lexington and Louisville (and horses).
Patch lost his eye but has been able to qualify for the Kentucky Derby. I think I am going to have to put some money down on him.

This past Sunday was a truly miserable day. It was cold, grey and gloomy. As I looked out my front window at 8:30 Sunday evening, I was greeted with this fantastic view. The clouds do eventually leave.
