The book I'm reading

When you have a home business and are your own boss, you must constantly think about self development. You are responsible for everything to do with your business, from your attitude to your advertising. You can never learn enough! If you want to be a 6 figure earner, you need to do what the 6 figure earners do.

Stop Whining, Start Living

Right now, I'm reading Stop whining, START LIVING by Sr. Laura Schlessinger. I read for about 1/2 hour last night. One particular thing I read really made me think. Dr. Laura was talking about how many calls she gets from women regarding their husbands or significant others sloppiness and refusal to help out with household chores.

Dr. Laura says perspective is everything. She asks the readers to imagine everything the other person does that irritates them. Then imagine that person no longer in your world. Are the socks on the floor really such a big deal when you look at it that way? My sister used to always say, "Choose your battles!" How true!

This morning, I thought alot about that. Our grandson, "Little Man" came over with his daddy this morning. They had breakfast with us, which Ron (my significant other) was cooking. Now Mr. Ron has his moments of being lazy, and he definately does not always pick up his clothes! He can really irritate me at times! But, then you see something like this..............

......................and how can you not love it?

Grandpa was chasing the dog around & around the kitchen table while making car sounds. Poor Rocky didn't know what to think! Little Man was laughing so hard, he was making me laugh. We both had tears coming out of our eyes. And then I thought, "Ok, maybe he isn't so bad after all!" He DID make breakfast, and he's always good for a laugh!

I think I will make him a batch of our favorite cookies, No Bakes for when he gets home from work tonight. Tell him how much I love and appreciate him.

Is there someone in your life that irritates you? Maybe you should put things in perspective and see if that irritating behavior is really that bad!

And check out Dr. Laura's book

Until later!
