Hey you…

Day 30 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

Well, it’s day 30! Congratulations! Yay US!

How was your month? What did you learn about yourself? What changes did you see in yourself? What changes did you see in the world around you?

Personally I’ve found that I am much more aware of everything; my thoughts; my actions; my reactions.

In the past 30 days I’ve let go of a lot of old patterns of behavior, through conscious awareness; really seeing things as they are…

This challenge, while being a 30 day challenge, should be something you strive to continue daily from now on.

If you’ve made a conscious effort to CHANGE over the past 30 days, then it is NOW a HABIT ! All you have to is practice; loving YOU; respecting YOU; being YOU 😊

Now is YOUR time to shine…Share your triumphs and challenges. I’d love to hear from you ALL…

Have a Fantabulous Wednesday my Friends!

To blindly follow the crowd, without question, is the fear of being different; the fear of being YOURSELF.

When you follow YOUR heart and do what’s rightinstead of what is ‘socially or religiously acceptable’; YOUR thoughts, words, and actions begin to align. This is the first step toward true wisdom…and that’s personal growth 😊

Day 18 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

The harder YOU try; the more YOU work against the free flowing nature of the Universe.

Letting go doesn’t mean, letting go of the steering wheel while you’re driving down the freeway 😜

But rather, letting go of attachments and expectations – to outcomes; knowing that things will unfold naturally.

Worry and stress won’t change the outcome; they will only leave you depleted, unhappy, and unhealthy.

So this weekend, try something different and new. Make it spontaneous; unplanned; a real adventure! Be in the moment and enjoy the ride 💜

Have a great weekend my friends.

My day was fabulous! When my nephew and I had our adventure on Bateman Island last week, we noticed how much litter had been left behind. He and I decided to return, armed with garbage bags and tidy up a bit 😜

Well today, along with three additional family members (we recruited 😜),  my nephew and I returned to the island.

 

 
It was a beautiful day and we had a Great time AND we carried out 7 bags of trash.

It wasn’t even work; because we were doing something together; it was FUN!

Day 7 (PM) – We’re going on a Magical ADVENTURE…

pooh adventure

Day 7 – The 30 Day Personal Growth Challenge

Today my nephew and I went on an Adventure!

“Where are we going?” he asked inquisitively…”somewhere magical” I replied.

We got together a few necessities; water, snacks, etc and we were off…

We drove to the river and parked. “We’re here” I said, as he anxiously looked around.

“The river?” he questioned, “I thought we were going on a magical adventure? What’s magical about the river?” he said a bit deflatedly. “I don’t know yet” I replied, “that’s why it’s an ADVENTURE!”.

We got out of the truck and walked toward the river. “The first thing we need” I said, “is a good walking stick!”. We soon both found acceptable walking sticks and the journey began.

IMG_3716

As we walked toward the land bridge and across to Bateman Island, I asked my nephew if he had brought his magic wand. “No” he replied, rather surprised by my question. “What?” I exlaimed, “…well we better find one on our way then.”

We continued our journey and a few minutes later, he looked down and exclaimed “I found it! The PERFECT magic wand.” I smiled big and said “great job buddy”, and after a quick high-five, we continued walking; each with our walking sticks and he with our MAGIC wand.

Bateman Island is beautiful. As we walked we saw grasshoppers, dragonflies, ants, and birds. Grass, sand, rocks, plants, trees, and then we came upon some beautiful yellow wildflowers.

IMG_3723

We both stopped to admire them and I said “What do you want to make?”. “Make?” he said curiously. “You know, with your magic wand…what do you want to make?”, I said with a grin. He looked at the small stick (magic wand) and then at me. “It’s just a stick Uncle Matt” he says, with a bit of attitude.

I laughed “How do you know? You haven’t even tried to use it yet”. I got an eye roll as he said “I don’t know what to make…”. “Make WHATEVER you want” I replied.

With that, he looked at me; and again at the stick. He smiled, waved this stick in the air and said “I’m going to make some purple flowers”, and with a quick “Abracadabra“, it was done. “And now the adventure begins…” I said as we started walking again; in search of his ‘creation’.

IMG_3719

The weather was perfect and the view incredible. We both walked silently for some time. As we rounded a bend in the trail we came across some more flowers. “Not purple!” he states and continues walking. I stop and snap a couple of pics anyway 😜

IMG_3722 IMG_3718IMG_3725

After a long silence, he looks at me and says “It didn’t work…” and before he could finish his sentence, he looked down and saw HIS flowers.

“Uncle Matt, Uncle Matt…IT WORKED!!!…Look” as he pointed to his right.

IMG_3721

Sure enough…purple flowers. He was ecstatic! We stood and admired them for a bit. He was elated that OUR magic wand had actually worked.

This time I didn’t have to ask what he was going to make, because he was using his magic wand non-stop 😊

“I’m making birds now – Abracadabra

“I’m making trees now – Abracadabra

IMG_3724

“I’m making EVERYTHING now – Abracadabra”

My nephew was HOOKED and our adventure continued; as we rounded each bend, we talked about all of the beautiful things HE had MADE for us to see. “OH WOW, you did a great job on this!…how did you make that?” I said, as he showed ME all the cool stuff HE had made come out of that little stick.

IMG_3720

We had a Most Excellent Magical Adventure!

IMG_3717

I love that kid💜

I hope YOU had an excellent magical adventure of your own today!

The first 7 days of the challenge have been incredible for me. Some difficult, some scary, but most – FANTABULOUS! I am seeing the world and everything in it differently somehow. I AM CHANGING; and that’s personal growth.

With peace, love, and gratitude,
