So yes, this was recorded yesterday morning. Between then and now, the biggest “yes’s” of my life have transformed into some pressing needs exhibited by my 3 little men (and their beautiful daddy), training a new assistant, comforting and supporting a friend through grief, brainstorming over some projects I’ve got in the works (to the tune of complete and total AWESOMENESS), and assisting a couple of my consulting clients with some VERY exciting new undertakings they’ve got cooking! So please, excuse the belated posting of this video! One thing you can always count on from me? I’ll always say YES to real life! It’s so much better than the www!!!!

Happy Monday Tuesday!

Today alone, I was contacted by 3 separate families expressing concern over a Whooping Cough outbreak here in Arizona. One friend received a notice from her children’s school, another told me of her coworker’s 8 week old baby being admitted to the hospital after being confirmed positive for Pertussis (Whooping Cough), and yet a THIRD messaged me seeking details about the cough because she was concerned over the health of her granddaughter who may have been exposed.

And while we’re on the subject, we were on national news. We didn’t even know until this evening. Go figure. I have no idea when our story originally aired on America Now, but the footage is from an interview we conducted for KHON2 News in Hawaii back in 2010. Seemed fitting to share today. Parents, play it safe. Get your Tdap (adult and adolescent Pertussis booster shot)—ESPECIALLY if you are anti vaccinations as it relates to the little ones in your home. You can’t afford not to. Trust me. I understand the cost, and you can’t afford it. No one can.

Today I did something that I’ve been really afraid to do. I finally found the courage to be decisive, and I took the leap. Happy Leap Day by the way! The decision I made is a risk, a calculated risk, but a real risk, nonetheless. I weighed the alternatives, got clear about my overarching goals for myself, my family and my business, and I jumped. Only time will tell if God gives me wings, but one thing is completely clear: I’d rather risk it all than succumb to fear and be doomed to a world filled with surface level living. Right?! Of course right.

I’ve been thinking a lot about balance and overall happiness of late. I’m realizing, for the millionth time, that happy habits truly do a happy heart make. Perhaps that should read, “intentional living truly does a happy heart make,” because I’m learning, and relearning, that truth over and over (and over) again as well.

These things WORK for me, so be sure to check out my MTH Tumblr post: 5 Tips To A Happier You.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

xo!
