Love Home – It Makes Work Worth Doing

It is fantastic to have a good home life because it makes going to work worth doing. For many people the biggest joy they have in life is the ability to come home at the end of a long day and get hugs and kisses from family members. It makes all the stresses of the day seem worthwhile when you have a loving home to return to each day.

 
The movie The Wiz had a great song about home. One of my favorite lines from the song is, “When I think of home I think of a place where there is love overflowing.” I always think of my home that way. It is wonderful to know that no matter what my day is like, no matter how many dragons I must slay during the day, when I get home life is calm and good. I will see my husband, my children will start calling my name, the dog will jump on my legs and the car will look at me. In other words, when I get home, I am welcomed back into the sweet embrace of love.

When a person goes off to work, to earn a living, time is spent away from the comforts of home. There are people all over America who are going to work at jobs they hate or at best only tolerate. The reason they do it is for the comfort of coming home. People go off to work in order to pay for the ballet lessons, karate lessons, dates with the spouse and wonderful vacations.
 
It is important to make your home a warm and inviting place. A person’s home needs to be a place that is a place of refuge and safety. It is a good  mental boost and a step toward getting the right mental attitude at work. When a person realizes that the sacrifices, aggravations and drama at work paying off with a wonderful home. The next time you are at work and are thinking about complaining about work, remember the home your job helps pay for and get a new attitude. So, the question for you this fantastic day is when things are going bad at work, do you ever think about the good home your job makes it possible for you to have?

Love Technology – It is an Organizational Marvel

Years ago I kept a day planner. One of those fancy loose-leaf books with a calendar, to do list, planning sheets and a section for contacts. I liked my day planner. Each morning I would review my calendar and to do list to see what was going on that day. Each afternoon I would carefully move items from one day to another according to the day’s events. At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate new set of paper pages for the new year. When I switched years and move the old calendar out and added the new one, I enjoyed copying the birthdays, anniversaries and important dates. While in court getting dates for future appearances, I liked paging through my planner and seeing how busy I was. I liked having a full calendar.

Then one day I discovered PDAs, the smart part of today’s smart phones. For a while I kept a paper day planner and my electronic organizer. Over time, I came to trust my technology and put away the paper planners. I liked the fact that with an electronic organizer, my view each day was neat, my notes were always easy to read and moving items from one day to another was a breeze. It was so easy to keep track of things, to move things around and to see what my plans were with the neat text of the PDA. I synced it with my computer and printed out hard copies of certain information once per month.

Today we have computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones that store your information on the device, in the cloud and between devices. For almost every organizational problem there is an application that solves the problem. I have come to enjoy and trust the organizational marvel that my technology provides. My tablet has my calendars, (each color coded)yes calendars:

* personal
* businesses
* blog advertising
* blog group calendar
* family calendar
* spouse’s calendar

I like keeping track of each area of my life in a separate calendar, color coded by purpose. At a glance I know if I am spending the day on my own activities, working for my children or working for another. With my technology it is easy to separate my calendar into many subcategories in order to keep everything organized and separate but combined at the same time. My tablet has my shopping lists broken down by store type and purpose. I use my tablet to keep track of plan for birthday parties, school events and bus schedules. When my children are ill, I set alarms on my tablet to remind me when to take temperatures and when to give out medication.

It is amazing how organized technology allows me to be. When I promise someone I will do something, I put it in the calendar while I am talking about it so I can be sure to do the appropriate prep and follow through. With my technology, I am able to keep large numbers of phone numbers organize, up to date and current. I can keep all the resources I need for blogging, vision boarding or mind mapping in my hand, on my technology. I am simply amazed at how organized I can be with technology. So the question for you this terrific day is what do you love to use technology to keep organized?

Love Taking Action, Because Faith Without Work is Dead

I am part of a few accountability circles. One I formed with two women after a conference last October. We had some starts and stops and we are still working our way through how to make the group work, but we are working it out. I have another accountability group formed with two business partners. We are informal in our interaction, but we hold each other accountable and provide each other with encouragement and support. I have another group of women in a Facebook group that help me with accountability by asking me to share my failures and successes and pushing me on to succeed.

The thing that makes all of these accountability groups work is that the members all demand action. In each of these three circles, my accountability partners allow me to plan, to research and to think things out. However, none of them let me get away with stopping there. They all demand that I get up and do some work. No matter how beautiful my plans are, no matter how exiting the ideas I come up with are, nothing matters until I step out and take some action. It is required that I take action, that I move forward with the plans I have made. My accountability groups demand that I take action.
 
At the heart of everything that I am, is the fact that I am a church girl. My Christian faith gets me through all kinds of situations. A major part of me being a church girl is my faith, mustard seed faith. It says in the Bible, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can say to a  mountain move and it shall be cast into the sea. Another thing you hear a lot if you grow up in the churches I went to is that faith without work is dead. The idea behind the first statement is that you only need a little faith to get things done. The idea behind the second statement is that no matter how strong your faith, you must get out and do something, put in work in order to make things happen.

As you read these words, you are undoubtedly thinking of a dream you have, the thing in life you have faith would turn out wonderfully if you just . . . Well today is the day to just . . .  to do whatever it is you need to do to accomplish your dreams.  You know that article you want to write because it could change lives, write it. You know that idea at work that would improve productivity and make you irreplaceable, today is the day to share that idea with management. You know that parenting idea that would help you be a better mom and get your kids back on track, today is the day to try it. Let today be the day you fall in love with taking action. Faith without work is dead, get up and put in some work. So, the question for you this magnificent day is what are you going to take action on today?

Fall in Love with Work – It Makes Home Possible

It is fantastic to love work because it makes good things at home possible.
 
For many people going to work is a chore, something they do because they must, something they hate. As a result, these people start the day with a bad attitude toward work and continue with a bad attitude throughout the day. Imagine what would happen if instead those people started the day with a good attitude and continued it throughout the day. Instead of hating work and dreading the approach of each morning, make a change and fall in love with work because it makes home possible.

First let’s look at some reasons to love what work makes possible at home:
  • it is nice to be able to pay the rent or mortgage
  • electricity is good
  • water is good
  • telephone  is service nice
  • a fridge full of good food is a wonderful thing
  • a full pantry feels really nice
  • it is fun to be able to go shopping and pick up whatever you want, when you want
Now, if you had a person who provided you with that list of things, you would like that person and be happy to see that person coming. So look at work the same way. The job you have makes it possible for you to create the lifestyle and obtain the quality of life you have created for yourself and your family. As a result, your work should be treated with respect and maybe some sisterly love.

When I was younger there was a song with the lyric, “free your mind and the rest will follow.” Those words are applicable in the work situation. Get the right mental attitude, think positively and affirmatively about work. When you have a good attitude,  the laws of attraction and the notion of what goes around comes around means that you will have better attitudes toward you when you put out a good attitude. Get a loving attitude toward work because of what it makes possible for you at home. So, the question for you this fantastic day is, can you find a way to love your job since it makes much of your home life possible?

Fall in Love with Your Job Because Paychecks are Nice

Each workday, people all over America wake up, shower, dress and go off to work. Many of those people are not happy about having to go to work each day. Some of them even curse the fact that they must go to work. I am proposing that instead of hate, those people start looking at their jobs with a loving attitude.  Think about it. When a person is in love, the person is kind, considerate and speaks with a kind voice. When a person is in love, she does not insult the object of her love. A woman in love protects the reputation of the object of her affection. In return, she expects to be rewarded with love, loyalty and affection.

So tomorrow, try looking at your with an attitude of love. When you get up in the morning, think about your job with a smile. If your job is truly horrid and there is no way you can fake a smile, get dressed before you get out of bed. That means, put on your big girl panties and your fake it until you make it dress and smile anyway. If the job itself doesn’t make you smile, the fact that you will be getting a paycheck at the end of the pay period should  turn your frown upside down.
 
Here are a few relationship ideas you can use to show that loving feeling at work:
  • speak kindly when talking about your job
  • dress up and look your best for work
  • do not engage in idle gossip about your job
  • act as if you are happy to get your paycheck
  • thank your co-workers for nice things they do for you

Just as no one likes a woman who has a good husband that bad mouths and cheats on her husband, no one likes a person with a good job who acts like a fool at work. Do not cheat on your job – give your job all the hours, attention and devotion you promised when you got hired. Do not disrespect your job – be courteous to those you work with and your customers. If you are not happy with your job, move on to another. In the meantime, learn to love your job because getting a paycheck is indeed a nice thing. So, the question for you this wonderful day is what do you do to show you are happy your job gives you a paycheck?
