The Month of Love
It has been a fabulous February even though it still is no sign of spring weather yet. We are waiting patiently for the signs though.
We hope lots of love was in the air for you this month.
Baby It's Cold Outside
Of course I can't fail to mention the really cold weather everyone is enduring this year. It is hard to imagine that most of North America is totally frozen. This vortex really is out of control. At any rate... I sure hope the spring warmth returns soon.
Love is really is a driving force! It is the only explanation I can think of that could get me out in the freezing cold, I still take twitch out for his walk in the bone chilling cold. Check out my funny outfit. Twitch doesn't care as long as I am there with him. Still.. it is a darn cold winter people! This too Shall Pass! (Hopefully sooner rather than later.)
Mom, John, Al and I had a chance to have a nice family day holiday this month. They were visiting from Saskatchewan, hoping to get a little warmer. HA! the Polar Vortex would have none of that. The weather their entire stay was just like home. It was lovely nonetheless. We did have a nice time together. Here's a snap of us at dinner.
Life often throws you curve balls. Usually it is a test to see how you respond to one, and set about a recovery plan.
I often see others blaming outside forces for their situations, which may not really provide you with an accurate picture of what you need to think about and do in response to the situation. It is always a good idea to take a look within.
Our business has been in flux, and as a result, Al and I are back working together full time. One benefit we have seen is our working relationship really has improved dramatically. We are on the same team and are both working together on our goals. We attribute our success in this challenging time due to our self-growth, the business systems we put in place over the years, as well as our positive attitude. We have no time to blame. We are taking responsibility for what we created. One crucial lesson is that we learned the importance of having a plan B should plans not go according to what we expect.
You do have more control than you think. Remember not to keep all your eggs in one basket as that can be devastating. Diversification is key, as is having multiple streams of income. I cannot express the importance of seeking out like-minded people, mentors, coaches, anyone you think may be able to give you some sage advice. You don’t have to go it alone.
