Happy Birthday America!

Here we are, Fourth of July weekend 2010, another year older, the birthday of our country.

Happy Birthday America!

Like any annual birthday celebration, we join with special loved ones to share laughter and smiles. This is a magical gift, a truly unique life.

How do you express gratitude and appreciation for the irreplaceable person of mother, daughter, father, or friend? What thoughtful gift do you joyfully wrap and bring to the party?

The Birthday of America is no different.

A day set apart for you and me, to reflect and respect the gracious privilege to have experienced another year with her – The United States of America. Faithful to needs, desires, and dreams come true.

What tangible offering have you brought her? How much time did you take to find that special something which clearly reflects your deepest appreciation to know her? Are you a better person for having met her? Is she better for having met you?

America is beautiful because she gives me the opportunity to be the best person I was created to be. Under God, in the Land of the Free, one nation, one family, committed to lead.

Together I trust we can still pray enthusiastically for these.

Some would say they never truly appreciated something until it was gone. You may have felt the same when someone you loved passed from this life to the next. What more could you have done or said?

In God We Trust

America is a one-of-a-kind treasure, to be cherished, protected, respected and adored. This country is too brilliant and beautiful for anyone to ignore. She is a star for all to see, from sea to shinning sea.

This July 4th birthday, let’s not take her for granted. Let’s think of the gift we are bringing to her, to help her become the best she was created by our founding fathers to be.    

 
 

FOR, BY and OF the PEOPLE

This fourth of July, remember the many who came to live free or die for her. Those who gave up anything, to make sure you had everything.

Love is an action word worthy of your effort.

America the beautiful, dressed in dazzling red, white, and blue. Help me firmly protect, the lives still yet, who dream to express, “America the Beautiful – I too, love you.”

Happy Birthday America!

God Bless & Protect Our Troops

Positive & Negative People – Are You Good Garnish?

Gotta’ love it!

That little jazz-of-pizzazz which delights the dish, sparkles the eyes with a surprise, and magnifies the meal in a moment. Yes, good garnish makes any ordinary dish extraordinarily spectacular in every possible way!

Good Garnish Makes the Dish!

Garnish - defined by Websters Dictionary is “to decorate (food) with something that adds color or flavor.”

This past week I was doing a radio show with host of the “Hatched Egg”, Amy Furbee, and we were talking about the issue of becoming who we associate with. Surrounding yourself with positive or negative people, definitely has an effect on YOU, whether you want it to or not.

Stand next to perfume or manure long enough,
and guess how you’ll soon be smelling?!

Suddenly, Amy interjected,

“It’s like my husband and I always say – Is that person Good Garnish?”

Are YOU Good Garnish?

WOW! I love that analogy – because it resonates truth beyond compare.

The people you chose to associate with, are either good garnish in a true blue right side up world, or distasteful wilted garnish in a green sky upside down world. You must decide what you will allow by your side.

A little bit of garnish, possess a powerful impact on what the whole plate looks like. Think about how just a little piece of something, makes such an enormous difference on the larger portion. Doesn’t the concept make you pause and reflect?

Next time you feel agitated around someone, or perhaps just a little confused, ask yourself, “Is this person”Good Garnish”in my life?”

You may decide you need a different ornament decorating your sustenance. If you’re plate is already full, adding even the smallest sour flavor could be a major killer tipping point which destroys your whole meal.

Who is Good or Bad garnish in your life today? Are you Good Garnish for the people you meet?

You are what you eat. Bon appetite… and Cheers!

Bon Appetite & Cheers!

Author and motivational consultant, Deb Scott, is no stranger to hardship.

The tone of the book is very conversational. The reader almost feels as if he or she is sitting down with Deb, having a cup of coffee, and talking with her. The book is full of stories and quotes and analogies from everyday life that beautifully illustrate her points. She offers helpful advice that includes praying, 12 step programs (not just for alcoholics), tips for finding and determining if you have a “good” therapist, volunteering, and valuable resources (online and media) that can be used to help readers find blue skies and green grass. Another helpful tool that Ms. Scott includes is written exercises. Found throughout the book, these exercises are intended to help readers do some critical thinking and self-evaluation so that they can find themselves on the path to happiness.

ALL BOOKS REVIEW International ~ Highly Recommended! :)

“You don’t know, what you don’t know !”
“Simple? Yes. Easy to accept? No ! Deb Scott’s premise that “You don’t know, what you don’t know,” is the basis for transforming negatives into positives. It is the foundation for her book.
The Sky is Green and the Grass is Blue teaches readers to reverse their thinking; to turn all of life’s negativity into a positive, happy life. Starting at the beginning she convinces readers that help is just a step away. First and foremost you must open your mind and open your heart. Prayer is encouraged.
The author suggests that “going it alone” does not work. The book recommends several well-qualified organizations, at no cost to the member, that can help. The next step would be professional therapists and coaches and media tools, all practically listed and suggested. Numerous stories and anecdotes are included to make her point and provide entertainment.
Well organized, humorous, entertaining and yet, very in depth sensible advice, this book will be a great help to many people in conquering their fears and their past.”
Highly Recommended

A Review by Dr. Patrick A. O’Dougherty, out of the F. Scott Fitzgerald community of St. Paul, MN

“Brilliant!”

“Encouragement. Deb Scott should be encouraged. I come from a family of counselors. My mother, Patricia O’Dougherty, was a social worker on the charging team in Minneapolis. She worked with the women’s prison, alcoholics, and the Indian mothers. My father, James O’Dougherty, was an attorney who specialized in counseling. I have a counselor who specializes in counseling writers. I, first, sought counseling because I did not want to fall through the cracks in life. I am evaluating Deb Scott’s book not as a professional but as a consumer. Motivation. Motivation is one of the hardest topics to write about because it is very difficult to judge motivation. Actions speak louder than words. Writing a motivational book is quite an ambitious undertaking. Deb Scott maintains motivation should lead to action. This book review is an action, a defining point an outcome from reading the book. The strength of Deb Scott’s book is it is filled with prayers and profundities. It has exercises and a plan, focus and positive advice. It has religious themes without being preachy or proselytizing. I went to Washburn High School in Minneapolis. Dwayne Dwyer replicated the miracles of St. Francis of Assisi on the stage with the audience. I don’t think my high school physics teacher at Washburn, Mr. Requeway, could do this. Deb Scott is a replicable miracle. The kingdom of God is within. It is within you. It is within Deb Scott. Ironically, I made a teaching film which uses a similar exercise to the one Deb Scott does. My exercise is to spell your name with dots between the letters and then turn the letters of your name into a poem with another person’s name and then connect the dots and poems. Service. Get out of yourself is another profound piece of advice from Deb Scott. Surround yourself with motivational tapes, meditation and positive reinforcement. Advice I have found useful is to make a roadmap of your life and chart it. Gratitude. Count your blessings. Deb Scott’s advice, profundities and ironies are grace notes for new prescriptions in your life. I hope this review makes you feel new. Your book renewed my interest in your field. You want to change people’s thinking and lead them to do good. It is difficult to judge motivation. So, I won’t judge Deb Scott, rather accept. Brilliant!”

WOUNDED~TO~WONDERFUL

Wounded to Wonderful – what a brilliant catch phrase for daily living!

Like a left and right leg, we need both to stay upright and move forward in any direction.

Want to really go somewhere in your life? Don’t waste time trying to figure out if the left leg is bad, and the right leg wrong, or is it the right leg is wrong, and the left leg is right?

Beauty in a Broken Heart

Accept you need both, and surrender to the fact each is completely different for a reason, and both of their differences are working to help you achieve a bigger common goal which will make you happy. Now there is some right side up true blue sky thinking!

When Nancy Wait and I discussed her idea for the flow of her radio show, we brainstormed creative, fun, powerful ways you could gain imagrey and practical application to duplicate a consistent equation towards all things good for you.

Like the legs which take you to any physical desire, what are the spiritual vehicles which cooperate to bring you towards the dreams you seek?

Surrender + Hope = Knowing Self

Why does “Knowing Self” balance the equation? Because only in Knowing Self can one know anyone, or anything else.

Every person has a wound, this is an apparent bad we all share in common. It’s what allows you to read the story of someone you never met, and feel as if you have known them forever. The wound exposes your/my/our deep vulnerability.

So how can a wound be transformed into wonderful?

This question begs you to define exactly what “wonderful” means to YOU? Is it that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when opening a birthday gift? The attainment of a goal you have ached to acheive? Or is it finding the good lesson which makes good great, bad into good, or sadness into overwhelming joy?

Consider seeking to learn the good lesson in any given event, will automatically transform the event into something positive, regardless of what you may feel in the now moment. Consider you’re not finished yet. Consider the pressure of the circumstances you most detest, are helping you become your brightest happy best!

Discover the brilliance in the Diamond of the Amazing YOU!
