A Tribute To All Eagles & Lions

Standard

9am in the office door ready for that 10am earth-breaking pitch to seal a $100K project in, then talking to your team all revved up and be replied with a “Huh, but I have to have coffee and toast first!” whined the Queen Whiner of the nation. Soul plummets to your feat. How? How in the life of me could you soar like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys? In this instance turkey.Eagles

Do you feel that? It is hard enough to sum up the courage of a might-be-scary-presentation to an awe-inspiring-triumph moment. So being the optimist that you are what do you do? Get rid of the turkeys! Make your own pack. May your pack be the professional stiff collar world or the warm and gooey-potato couch buddies!

Lions

Thank you Monalisa for inspiring this blog!

The Heat of the Fad

Standard

Snow had fallen heavy last night. The heaters are working hard keeping the rooms cozy. You open the window and gasp at the wondrous haven of immaculate serenity, untouched snow blanketing all what your eyes can see.
It is calmer today, more chilly than yesterday. While your breath fogs the window your thoughts drift on how to take advantage of that snow. Grab your wide-angle lens, shoot away? Pull on your reliable snow boots and trample away on the great white and make a snow angel or two? Maybe sit down with a warm coco and laze the day away?
The choices are endless, that is just for the snow. How about your taste? Your life? Your expression? How to silently cast your thoughts away?
Facebook? Twitter? The net? TV? How’s about a shirt? I am going basic, ill be expressing myself today with a shirt. I placed my photo down for you to see. Would you like to express yourself like me? Go to my reference link, they are awesome. Typically like me! Seize your day!

Hmmm, food for thought, quite a chunk. We always get inspirational quotes, motivational speeches and encouraging dialogues that moves us forward for whatever decision we have to make. Accepting a promotion, becoming a parent, getting married, that sort of life altering decision in life.

We need that, aware or not, that is one factor why we go ahead with a decision, when we get told to. I always had qualms, and most of the time my mind is made up but I just can’t go ahead sometimes, specially if it concerns other people’s welfare, I need an accomplice.

 

In my life, I always had my mentor, Pascale, she’s different from me like night and day, that was the first day I met her. She was my mentor, financial manager, for 10 years and had been the greatest motivator in my life. She never really told me what to do but she makes me ‘say’ what I want to do. She narrows everything down that made me select the best answer like a quiz. For the last 14 months I haven’t seen her yet as we are continents away. She made me believe and she made me who I am. She was and is the friend, adviser, boss, logical judge and french connoisseur, best I ever had. Thankful for the lessons given. The best advise she gave me was, I am great and I should believe I am. There is no better person who could think less or more of you than yourself.

 

Merci beaucoup Madame! Gros Bisous!
