Seeing The Gifts In Daily Events

May 5, 2021 | Dorothea Gordon | 0 comments

Can you name three highlights which have recently occurred in your life? If you are aware, you can see the little and the big gifts which Life presents to you. For me it’s been getting the first Covid shot the other day and having a sense that I’m doing my share to beat this virus; my husband bringing me the most beautiful bunch of flowers –simply to add joy to my day; and lastly, my participation in the Festival of Storytellers over the last two weekends.

Being part of a group which emphasizes connecting through books was an amazing experience. Most of the 150 authors were self-published and wanted to share their messages with the world. As a panelist I had to prepare questions to ask the ‘author of the hour’ about their backgrounds and why they had written the book, what their message was, and so on. Some of the authors I would have loved to talk to for longer than an hour, especially to those who are on a similar wavelength like myself. Dr. Jo Anne White was one of them, we had so much in common. Such a highlight!

As long as I can remember, I have always been very interested in other people’s lives and what makes them tick. In my cultural background it’s ok to ask direct questions of people, in North America I could be considered nosy. All I really want to know is their story and how they came to be where and who they are. There are fascinating experiences and events in everyone which would make engaging books. I read the local obituaries and often wonder about the highlights and lowlights of the lives of the departed. But I know folks who are still available to share their stories and maybe I will write a book in the format of Chicken Soup for the Soul.

In closing I’d like to say that each one of us could start looking at our lives as a story and check out its highlights and create more, and its lowlights and see what we have learned from them.

Some Non-negotiables in Business and Life

Some Non-negotiables in Business and Life

I love listening to motivational speakers who, like myself, are committed to empowering others. We are sharing our life skills to fill the holes which people keep falling into and remain stuck in.

Climbing the Author Ladder

I was beside myself with joy and gratitude because this was yet another example of how the Law of Attraction comes through when you know how to work it. In my case I simply invite the unexpected and then welcome it with open arms. I’m usually very selective about what I invite – because that’s what I manifest. What we focus our energy on often shows up in our lives, positive or negative. So watch your thoughts!

Empower Yourself

I would like to say that as a transformational coach I meet many people who feel lost and are overwhelmed by the things that aren’t working in their lives. My advice to them is the same as Anita’s: love and appreciate yourself unreservedly. Count your gifts and your blessings. It may be hard at first but if you persist, you may see positive changes in your health and your environment.

Living Authentically

Living Authentically

Showing up as authentic requires courage and a willingness to make oneself vulnerable. It means letting our real selves be seen, almost like taking our psychological clothes off in public. People who practice authenticity create huge benefits for themselves and build more profound connections with others.
