Today's Friday Photo comes from Tuscany, Italy. I’m sharing one of my new year goals today. I hope you make it one of yours - and stick with it!

This week it’s time for some brutal honesty. First I’d like you to do this exercise for yourself, then gather the courage to ask friends, family and peers to rate you for an outsider’s perspective. If you can, have it be confidential so they will be completely honest.

You need a paper and pen. I’m going to put a slide at the end of this video so you can pause it and see this if the explanation isn’t clear, and here’s what I want you to do. Draw 6 lines of about equal length, one under the other, about an inch apart. Make a hash mark in the middle of each line to mark the center.

To the left of the 1st line write the word unkind. To the right, kind. I’ll give you the next 5 sets of words, always starting at the left.

Impatient, patient

Closed, open

Taking, giving

Talker, listener

Judgmental, open

Feel free to add other sets of words you feel are important or that you’d like to explore more.

Where would you like to be in relation to where you are on these scales. Look at each item and write 2-3 things you need to work on to get there.

It’s that time of the year when people make resolutions about what they are going to change in their lives. What I know is that if you don’t change on the inside, nothing changes externally (that weight, smoking, procrastination, etc), so I want to do something different for you.

So each week through January I’m going to provide an exercise of introspection to start that work on your Self. I encourage you to diligently follow through!

This week I’d like you to think of an issue that you’ve been approaching logically. (Perhaps that pesky resolution that shows up each year?) Spend the week looking at it through the lens of your heart and see how everything about it shifts.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Downtown, Minneapolis, MN. This is the perfect quote to end the year and prepare for entering 2019. What thoughts, ideas or habits are you attempting to take with you into the New Year? The past is over - learn from it and move on. Trying to carry it with you to re-live in your future, whether it's good or bad, will surely lead to disappointment. With everything you've learned from the past, what's the first thing you want to write on your blank slate?

Today's Friday Photo comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was  a thrilling ride to take (I was in the car going the other direction!) - almost 3 miles and 10,000 feet above the valley floor. I was hesitant at first, imagining all the things that could go wrong (they DO in the movies, you know....LOL), but then I decided not to miss out on this incredible view. What are you going to let go of in the new year that's keeping you stuck?

Happy Holidays Linda! 

To you as well Roberta!

I just love this time of year. Happy music, pretty decorations, holiday treats… all the makings for feelings of JOY. I want everyday of the year to be just like this.

But if all this was happening year round, we might not appreciate that wonderful feeling of JOY. It might begin to feel ordinary or we might take it for granted. 

Yes, that’s true. Think about the emotion of JOY. If you felt joy everyday, every minute of your life, how would you know you were experiencing JOY? I guess we need some contrast don’t we?

That’s why when clients may be having tough times, we help them find the benefit of those issues. What can I learn from this problem or emotion?

And because they know what they DON’T want, we can help them start focusing on more of what they do want. The emotions we don’t like are just pointing us in the direction of joy.

I’m Roberta Fernandez

And I’m Linda Schutz

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy. I remember spending lots of time marveling it's magnificence - How could someone imagine such a thing? Then I came by this quote form Steve jobs and it put many things in the proper perspective about most things in life - even the ones that seem so profound. It is life changing......

Today's Friday Photo comes from somewhere in the Kenya Bush. I love this quote! I paired it with this picture because, one would think elephants (all 4,000 pounds of them!) would make so much noise when they walked, but not true. This guy literally snuck up on us as we were photographing something else. Whether we shake loud or softly, perhaps it's time to be thinking about 2019 and do the things that bring our soul joy!

It’s that time of the year when we are told we should recognize the things we are thankful for in our life. Hmm…shouldn’t this be a daily practice? Anyway, many are often doing the opposite - thinking about the negative things in their life.

Today's Friday Photo comes from Florence, Italy. I just missed the old woman who had been looking down talking to a friend - in her own little world in a big, bustling city. Her two windows, her eyes on her world.
