Before you kick the bucket, you should know…

Recently, my daughter and I were discussing bucket lists. She said she has a mental one, nothing written down. I do too, but feel the need to begin writing it down as I seem to forget more than I remember these days. If you are like me, and want to address some things before you kick the bucket, maybe this post will help. I feel like I have spent my life seeking reality. Real people, real values, real solidity in nature, just real “stuff”. I have learned now, I think, to not pay so much attention to other people and

What’s on your thing list?

What’s on your thing list?

If you knew you were coming up to the end of your life, what would be the last few things that you’d do?  Your THING list? I don’t know what I would do, when it gets down to it. It would be nice if those things were something that mattered. Things that would leave a legacy. And, I sure do have a long list of things that I want to do. Yeah. Like Santa’s list. LOOOOONG.

My multi-tasking-ever-busy-lifestyle has been the reason my health took a backseat and why I have not seen some of my best friends in far too many years. I need a strategy. As I am contemplating the end of

I KNOW Business, it’s true.

I KNOW Business, it’s true.

This is a sort of did you know post. Did you know, I am the owner of a small business? I am, and it feels great. Well, most of the year anyway. It is sort of seasonal. I operate VideoVision Entertainment, and it is nice to say that it’s been around since 1992. My business shoots video, edits videos, and provides memories that last a lifetime. But having a business can be hard when you are not a full-time employee. When we got started way back when camcorders were the size of a small bus, I imagined it as my

Goals and what they mean to you

Goals and what they mean to you

Goals and what they might mean to you Have you ever noticed words inside of words? I have. Like GOALS – it has the word GO in it. And DIET has the word DIE in it. Yeah, well, I never promised you I wasn’t a weirdo. But, we do play mind games with ourselves sometimes (like seeing words in words!) If you are like me, seeing GO in GOALS made me a little more motivated. I wanted to share with you. How to take a big goal and turn it into little smaller bites First, make a BIG GOAL-an over-arching
