THIS WEEK: BREAK THE RULES

Let us get something clear up front… this week is not about breaking the law or doing something inappropriate or unwise. Hopefully that’s not too much of letdown for you. No, this week is about you and your own rules that you have knowingly or […]

THIS WEEK: ADD COLOR

You may have never thought about this before, but you have an instant impact on any situation or circumstance that involves other people. If there are fewer people, you have a larger impact, like in line at the grocery store, in an elevator, or in […]

THIS WEEK: DORK OUT

We often wonder if everything has just become way too serious. In some way, growing up has become synonymous with growing serious… more responsibilities, more awareness of people’s judgments, more “know it all-ness.” But we don’t think this needs to be the case. After all, […]

THIS WEEK: WRITE A NOTE

There was a time when people would pull out a piece of paper and a quill and actually handwrite a note to someone. Every single word on that piece of paper came directly from the author’s mind or heart. Then we got greeting cards, which […]

THIS WEEK: BE A FLATTERER

Compliments are a tricky thing. We know that saying nice things to someone is a good thing, but that doesn’t mean we do it very often or well. Why? Well, think about this… How does it make you feel when someone gives you a compliment? […]

THIS MONTH: MONDAY GETS HAPPY

There are a few universal truths that all of us share—we don’t like pain, we don’t like worry, and we don’t like sadness. Given the choice, we would avoid all of that. But what if we did have the choice? Some argue that we do… that we have the ability to ignore even pain. Interesting, right? We don’t recommend trying it, unless walking on hot coals is a personal goal. But there is something we hope you will try, because not only is it good for you, it is good for the world. It’s called, “Happiness.” What if we all choose to be happy or even happier this month? Yes, we get it… there is always plenty going on in our world and in our lives that make it super easy to not feel happy—bills, social injustice, workload, endless chores, etc. And as if all of this wasn’t enough, we have unexpected elements, like natural disasters, illnesses, or accidents. In other words, we have our hands full this month, because being happy can take work. It also takes an absolute commitment from our hearts and our heads. Sure, we can all experience small moments of joy, but we want happiness to be a way of life. We want this to be our baseline—that thing we all feel deep inside throughout our day. So get ready for an incredibly rewarding month, because happiness matters.
