Today's Friday Photo comes from the Museum District of Amsterdam, Netherlands. As I took this picture of a woman taking a picture, the scene seemed 'off ' somehow. She seemed too big in perspective to the trees with too many bags to carry, the busy area nearly vacant in the early morning, save the pigeons. Perhaps it has the not-quite-real look of a movie set. I thought this quote appropriate somehow - some people in your life might also feel  'off ' - where they are in relation to yourself. Understanding that may be the most important realization you have........

Today's Friday Photo comes from Deephaven, MN. As you turn over the proverbial new leaf  this new year, I wonder how many times you have wanted something but believed you could not have it for some reason. Fear, doubt, and uncertainty sabotage our best intentions and desires. Are you ready to let them go and manifest what you really desire?

Today's Friday Photo comes from a street in downtown San Francisco, California. Contemplation by both man and dog. As you review this past year, I wonder if you are finally ready to turn the page - to one that you have the power to write any way you desire....

Today's Friday Photo comes from Taos, New Mexico. Like many resolutions, the amazing  purples in this sunset were fleeting. Nothing changes on the outside if we don't address the limiting beliefs we carry within us - some of which we are totally unaware are even there. Start your new year out by working within. Learn how to do that at The FARE Hypnosis Center on January 4th - World hypnotism Day!

As we head into the season of love and good cheer (Gee, I didn’t realize we were only supposed to focus on this at one time of the year), we quickly head into the resolution season. A time when many vow to fix something in their life that they have lost control over. A time when, after just a few short days, many abandon those efforts once again.

Today's Friday Photo comes from The Campus at Stanford University. The hummingbird is a symbol of joy and sitting atop this beautiful bloom, their colors perfectly coordinated, it brought me pure joy. It is what we all strive for - and guess what - it's inside of each of us!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Rice Marsh Park in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I hope this quote really gets you thinking! Everything is interpreted from your own perspective. So how you see someone is your choice, your version of how to see them, not necessarily how they see themselves. When you have a reaction to someone or what they say, it is an opportunity to learn more about yourself. Perhaps it's a wise idea to attempt to understand perspectives other than our own. Just sayin'................

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Serengeti in Tanzania. As people celebrate this weekend of thanks and giving, I thought it a bit 'twisted' that it's only on occasion that we take time to notice the things for which we are grateful. It's what we give every day that we get in return - good or bad. So as you experience the closeness (or not....) that you feel though out this holiday season, make an early resolution to carry it through (or not....)  each and everyday, and watch how your life transforms!

Today's Friday Photo comes from my very steep backyard in Chanhassen, MN. As I watch my step carefully raking my way down this slippery slope this weekend, you may be wondering what this has to do with happiness. Everything. Events are neutral (in this case, raking a LOT of leaves). I am the one who assigns judgment about it being positive or negative. Why would I choose negative when positive feels so much better? I could choose to think about how much hard work it will be, how it will consume my morning, how cold it's going to be, or how sore I will be afterwards. Or I could choose to think about the great exercise I'll get, how I can get into my zone (aka hypnosis) and contemplate how wonderful life is, be grateful for the shade this beautiful maple provides me all summer and how colorful it is in the fall - and how it's such a great excuse to get a massage after I'm done! I choose happy..............
