Terrific Teens – The Best People We Know Club!

You may have heard the phrase, “out of the mouth of babes,” but you may never have considered learning life lessons from teens.  This blog post could provide a surprise which opens your mind.

Terrific Teens Team!

I recently completed a full week of volunteer teaching summer catechism (i.e. better known as Sunday school) for eighth graders at my parish in Newburyport, Massachusetts. This was a super concentrated program, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm daily.  Quite a demanding commitment for most adults, these young  people rose to the occasion with an attitude of openness, enthusiasm, and respect.

These terrific teens became positive energy transformation machines!  

Each student enjoyed contributing their own personal brand of authenticity into each project and presentation.  Creating posters, coordinating skits, organizing events, each teen expressed themselves with healthy humility and charisma.  A delicate balance of integrity many adults have sadly forgotten to represent.

Our Future & Hope

Picture Perfect Pizza.

At the end of the week, the group yearned for pizza.  How could you say no to those sparkling eyes and miles of smiles?!

When one of the group went out to place the order (everyone has a cell phone at thirteen these days), the returning response included, “Deb, we were short $15.00 for the order, but the pizza lady said not to worry about it, and she’s going to deliver it to us anyway!”

Shocked, I had to smile myself.  It was clear the pizza lady responded with the non-conventional generosity of spirit the students expressed to her.  Do we give more than we receive?

Screaming with excitement and gratitude to have all five pizzas confirmed in the order, the group quickly applied the lessons they had learned.  Love is an action word, and what would appreciation for pizza look like?

A huge hand made poster board thank you card of course!  Complete with pictures, comments, signatures, and a “Deb’s Awesome Class, INC” manufacturing logo.  A human symphony orchestrated with  fun and flair everywhere!

Give what You have to Give-Gratitude

A surprise for the eyes, a gift for the soul, a lesson in love, from heaven above. 

We can all grab a gift in this simple pleasure of …

living in the moment. 

Being fully present. 

Grateful without reserve. 

Open without intimidation. 

Celebrating the simple.

The Best People We Know Club!

Refocus your vision for your eyes to clearly see.  Expect the magic to be in every moment.  Accept sometimes the best wisdom is packaged in a surprise.  Open you heart and mind to find the treasure in your terrific teens.

Give Authenticity

If ever there is a memory to turn a green sky into beautiful true blue, it could come from the unique brand of you.  Dare to be bold in shining your brilliance into this day.

Your light might fade the shadows blocking someone else’s way. 

Love in action never looked so good!

Love in Action

Stepping into YOUR Spectacular!

Stepping into Your Spectacular!  

(as seen in All Books Review; Inpsiration;  Words of Wisdom)

You crave it, seek it, attempt to keep it, and never tire of acquiring more of it.

 

Jump In!

Your happiness!

The happiness you dream to achieve in becoming your brilliant best. Your most creative self. Expressing the essence of who you are from heart to hand, in a brilliant package of blinding super fine shine. What could be better than this?!

Stepping into your spectacular guarantees happiness, because whenever you express your passionate desires, you are keeping the promise to be who you are authentically created to be.

There is no right or wrong to being you. Is your left leg wrong, and your right leg right? Or is it the right leg is wrong, and the left leg is right?

No, both legs are different for a reason, and you don’t argue with your feet as you walk to where you want to go. You accept that the differences in each leg assists you in getting to your desired location.

Stepping into your spiritual creative spectacular is much the same way.
You need all elements of your passions, dreams, and inspirations to help you move towards your greatness.

Your expression of this magnificence is as unique as your very own face. Happiness is a one-of-a-kind find, designed just for you.

If you have a nagging desire to accomplish some goal, (maybe finish that book?) accept this feeling is not going away for a healthy reason. You must take a step forward and place action behind the emotion. One small step leads to one greater, with more momentum to fuel the next.

Stepping into your spectacular is the most unselfish action you could ever perform. The world needs you.

If you don’t become your very best, who will?

The Diamond of YOU!

Award winning author, Deb Scott, has written a new inspirational book with lessons from the heart and soul. The Sky is Green and The Grass is Blue, is turning around lives with a powerful message full of truth and understanding. If you are ready to turn your upside down world right side up, take the first step today. Deb’s book is now available at: Amazon, Barnes &  Nobel.com, and bookstores through Ingram. Get Inspired Now.

GFMG Your Way to Happiness!

(As seen in Power Women Magazine; by Deb Scott)

I have often said there needs to be a 12 step program for everyone.

A way to live with more self-awareness, detachment, acceptance and peace. A place of resourceful strength able to effectively kill those negative liar voices, the ones who seek to steal the precious positive real estate in your head.

Join the Party!

How and why do the 12 step programs help achieve your happy dream?

Imagine the steps are more simply broken down into four quadrants, or four pieces in a larger pie, or strong spokes in a wheel.

GFMG:

>The first set of 3 steps are about; Giving up
>The second set of 3 steps are about; Fessing up
>The third set of 3 steps are about; Making up
>The last set of 3 are about; Growing up

When we give up control of any situation, we are open to consider things we don’t know.

Once we are open to new ideas, we can see our part in any given circumstance, and focus on the only thing we have any control over anyway, and that would be us.

Once we are open and aware, we naturally want to heal any wounds by making up with the gift of forgiveness. Forgiving ourselves, and the other person, whether they deserve it or not.

Eventually, the process naturally helps us grow up and live life, on life’s terms. We stop the never-ending battle of wishing things were different, and accept things are what they are, grateful we did the best we could at the time with the information we had.

Gratitude for having learned valuable wisdom for the present moment and unwritten future.

It’s all a process.

The 12 Steps:

1. We admitted we were powerless over (insert your problem) —that our lives had become unmanageable.

2. Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him.

4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6. We’re entirely ready to have God remove our shortcomings.

7. Humbly asked him to remove our shortcomings.

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out.

12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all of our affairs.

Trees don’t grow twenty feet overnight, and neither does anything in the diamond of a person known as “you.”

GFMG is a winning equation you can always use to never lose!

PRAYER: Powerful Real Answers You Enjoy Regularly!

PRAYER: Powerful Real Answers You Enjoy Regularly!

So many people tell me, “Well Deb, I’ve tried everything else to solve this problem, I guess I should try to pray now.”

This is exactly the upside down thinking I’m talking about getting rid of!

Prayer From The Heart ;)

 

Prayer should not be the last resort, it should be the very first thing you do before anything else!

Ok – so you don’t understand how prayer works.

Well, you don’t understand how your television works, but you still channel surf on that. You don’t understand how your computer works, but you’re on the Internet right now, and not boycotting using that. And, you can’t build a car, but you have no problem getting into yours so you can arrive at your desired destination.  Am I right?

Do you see how hypocritical we can be when it comes to prayer? [Read more…]

Green Sky to True Blue Happy!

What Do These Happy People Have In Common?

What do authors like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Joel Osteen, Cheryl Richardson, and Mother Angelica have in common?

They all know the secret how to turn a Green Sky to True Blue!

Can you?

Be Happy in 2010!

With the New Year fast approaching, we all have goals. One of the most popular desires is to be happy, from the inside out. A safe place where no one can steal your joy.

The paradox of how to attain happiness, is a secondary gain of just doing the next right thing, having the next right thought, taking the next right action.

So why isn’t everyone in the world happy in life?

The secret, which is really no secret is all, is that they stuck to what they believed in their heart to be true, regardless of what other people told them was true. They did not let their happiness come from other people’s minds, and neither do you.

Think of forgiveness. Is forgiveness a feeling or an action? If you think forgiveness is a feeling, you are living inside a deep suffocating green sky. Forgiveness is in the action. If you do not wish someone ill, pray they will be enlightened to a higher level of connected purpose, and are not attached to revenge or being “right,” you have indeed already forgiven. Don’t be concerned with the results.

People often say that volunteering is something they do to help someone else. The great paradox is that volunteering most assuredly helps someone – namely YOU. When you volunteer you have to give away something without expecting anything in return. The motivation behind your volunteering is what gives you more than you receive. Like a fragrant perfume that is sprayed on another person, if you are standing next to them, some of the splendor must fall upon you too. Giving away by volunteering immerses you in the gift first.

You may perceive an event is bad in the present moment, but if you are reading this, you are not dead. If you are not dead, you are not finished yet. You do not know what you do not know. This tragedy and set back, could actually be a genuine set up for your greatest comeback!

Think of past events that you thought were devastating, for which you are now grateful. “Thank God for unanswered prayers,” as the song goes. The same can be true for you in the present moment. Do not believe the lie that all things are not working out for the best for you, exactly as they should be. Don’t give up five minutes before the miracle!

Prayer is one of the greatest free gifts we can all utilize to get answers. Think of Prayer as; Peaceful Real Answers You Enjoy Regularly, and ask you Higher Power, God, whatever you can accept in this very moment, to guide you to learn what you need to understand to transform your obstacles into opportunities to help you achieve your dreams.

Nothing is ever wasted in a green sky turned blue.

What can you transform in the coming year to make it the best year ever?

Blessings,
Deb

Death into New Life!

mom and nana 1950 in vermontWhen my mom, and best friend (Rachel) passed away in 2005, I was left dead with her. In the depth of pain, I never felt or saw anything good in her passing. I took comfort she was happier in heaven, than suffering the slow death of cancer eating away at her, but in the all about me show – I was left here alone, empty, without her. [Read more…]
