Hello Everyone! Hope you are surviving all the news?

If you never paid attention to the new before, you certainly should right now! Of course you will never know for sure what is real and what is not. Our world has certainly changed and you wonder from day to day what is going to happen next.

Thinking about what we can do as individuals to remain sensible, learn as much as we can if the subject is going to impact us or not, listen to both sides of an argument and define for yourself what is important

It is so important we all listen to what our children are telling us about the world around them and what they believe or what people are trying to get them to believe. How closely are you monitoring what social media is telling them, or the shows they are watching on TV or the games they are playing.

We all understand day to day living is not going to be a walk in the park or a piece of cake. Some days it does not matter what you do, things just are not going to be fine, especially where children are involved. What matters most is how you learn to survive those days without losing it totally. Sounds so easy but it is not and you have to grow into the practices you want to use to help those in your family, especially your younger ones .

Here some things you might think about and do if at all possible:

Take time to sit and talk with your children, listen carefully to what they are telling you. What is real and what is not.

Learn to think about what you say before you say it.

Practice what you preach. Talking about what you are going to do and not doing it means nothing.

Watching television and you find it objectionable to you, think about why you are letting your children watch.

What is going on at the schools your children attend? Do you attend conferences set up for you and interact with the teachers?

We all know that some people tend to lie very easily these days and not think a thing about it. If that would happen to be you, make a pact not to do that. You want to be known for your integrity.

The news is distressing , but we can all work harder to make the world around us better to live in.

Working on the big question, are you organized or not?

Becoming organized is an ongoing process and it is so easy to slip up and slide back into your old ways. Even when you know the key to a better outcome is organization and to finish one thing completely before starting another. As a multi-tasker it is difficult to change, maintain and support organization day in and day out.

We all know, or have heard about practice makes perfect, so maybe none of us has practiced enough to get the concept down in our heads or brains. Getting the bed made right away in the morning, even if no one is going to see it. Keeping the kitchen clean are two things that I am better organized at, but not much more. So my plan is to try, try again and hope I will make some progress.

You are welcome to join me in this organization thing. My plan is to focus on the paper side of things as that is what always seems to get out of hand. Here are some thoughts that have been running through my mind that might help you and me also.

  1. Going to the grocery store with a list. I am getting famous for forgetting the list, and the coupons. Went to the store for milk!! Got many other things, but no milk. LIST! COUPONS!
  2. Selecting a certain day or time to see that all bills are paid timely, automatically. Set up donations online, so that we can give when possible .
  3. Going through junk mail as soon as it comes !. Be careful that you do not throw out something important, like information from a physician’s office or some paper that has to filled out before you can get a procedure done.
  4. Try to really work harder on menu planning. It is such a pain.
  5. Work on getting my office to it’s organized look.

World of sharing ideas?

What a cutie! Sharing picture to make you smile.

The world of sharing sometimes is not very nice, but sometimes you find sharing is great. A good example is blogging. Just think how amazing bloggers are with sharing their ideas, courses and other thoughts.

It is awesome what the internet has to share these days and new ideas are being developed as I am writing this. Sharing is what is important. How you share even more important. Think about this:

  • Do you share with an open heart?
  • Do you share because you find it a challenge, that you want to meet?
  • Do you share what’s on your mind in a manner that is not demeaning?
  • Do you share because sharing is what you value?
  • Do you share because you want to learn also and you know others have great ideas ?
  • Do you share what you have learned, morally, spiritually and intellectually?
  • Do you share the above in a non-threatening, interesting, learning manner without anger?
  • Do you share what you have learned without becoming a potty mouth?
  • Do you share by becoming a volunteer and sharing your experience?
  • Do you share all you can about your pets and how you take care of them?
  • Do you share your parenting experiences? grandparenting experiences?

Hope the above gave you some food for thought and makes you get busy instead of sitting around mopping about nothing to do. Find something worthwhile to do. Remember millionaires started slowly and worked hard at low paying jobs, while pursuing their dreams.

Share a comment or two about this blog, better yet start following me as we learn together.

Thank you to everyone who has begun following me. It is such fun to see what you have to offer. God Bless you all. Have a wonderful shared day. Sign up for my newsletter. Remember every day is a learning, sharing day.

Negativity, moving ahead to appreciate yourself.

The definition of negativity. is habitual skepticism. A skeptic is a person who questions or doubts something. A person who often questions or doubts things. If it is constant are your friends saying to you, why are you so negative? Maybe you don’t consider yourself negative, just a questioner.

How can you change? It is not easy for someone who has a negative, always questioning, sour look on life to change. Sometimes they really resent what other people say to them about changing. If you want to change you have to look at yourself

Do you find people are starting to avoid you? Is your personality bracing? Do you find negative statements come out of your mouth and you think now why did I say that. Negativity can be hurtful without your meaning it to be.

Here are some things you might want to try to change your attitude toward people in general:

Think before you speak!

Learn from others how to express yourself more positively.

Say a small prayer daily for some help in changing. Something like- Please help me today, Lord to say things in a more positive manner! I want to change, but need some help. Amen

Journal what happens as you travel the path toward positivity. Really use the journal. List the negativity you, yourself felt. Don’t sugar coat things. Add what to do differently in the future.

In social gatherings is there a dead silence af!ter you say something?

Appreciate yourself today and everyday written 10/22/20. Thought it might be useful here.

Waking up on a dark and gloomy day you are already wishing that the bright days of summer were still with us. It is raining also but that is ok as we really do need it. You cast your view around your home as you are getting ready for work and think, oh boy, oh boy, a fast pick might make you feel better. Then you think, oh well everything will be waiting patiently for me when I get home.

Your plan for the future ,work harder on getting really organized, so you can look in the mirror and say I am really going to work on this. You have this wonderful idea appreciate me now and every day. So how are you going to do that, think, think and then think some more. Look around you and start to plan. Maybe you could consider this a business plan for yourself. Consider yourself the business that you want to update, feel better about, be thought of as innovative, creative and charming.

Aging Gracefully, a life style challenge

Not too long ago I decided to start a tribe on Tailwind, (which I love) and see what would happen. The name of my tribe is -Aging Gracefully, a life style challenge. So far, nothing, but then I am optimistic things will turn around. They always do, maybe not in the time frame I would like. Waiting is hard to do for all of us That brings to mind a gentleman waiting for the elevator, which was not very speedy, so he was banging on the elevator button. Now that was really going to help matters. Patience. Aging is like a kaleidoscope, ever changing.

Just going to talk briefly about when you are in your 20’s and 30’s.

When we are young, we look at the world with a different mirror, believing we would not grow old for a long time. We have lots and lots of time to pattern our lives and maybe we do/did some very foolish things. Think about what needs changing, or what you would like to do differently.

In our 20’s we are trying hard to find a profession, job that will bring us lots of satisfaction and make money. A difficult time, just got out of those teen years, that made you want to tear your hair out at times, now your world is changing. People you thought were friends you do not even see anymore.

In our 30’s we really would like to get married and start our family. Bringing children into the world is an awesome responsibility. It means your focus in life in life changes. Now you are about to become a parent . Another phase of life and all of a sudden a really different world appears. You learn what it means to be pregnant, how to prepare for the new life you are responsible for. What being healthy means. How important it is to work as a team surviving the first 5-6 months of being a parent. Just the start of things to come.

We will continue this discussion later. For right now determine what phase of your life you are at in your 20’s and 30’s. What is not working in your plan of life and how can you change it Your thoughts, your partners thoughts and what needs to change.

Will always find me talking a bit about Young Living Essential Oils and how great they are. Interested in learning more, add a comment and I will get in touch.

Hope you enjoyed this blog and will think about following selectionsfrombarb.com

Kindness, is there ever too much?

Word to live by in my mindset is #kindness. There is not enough of it in this world. It is hard to be kind to family and sometimes others who touch our lives in some strange way. We do not listen to what others have to say, without an unkind thought running through our minds. Our teenages are so affected by this lack of kindness from others, peers and adults. It is causing a great deal of stress in their lives. A lot of the adult population is right there with our teenagers.

What can we work on as a society to help change that? Stop being so judgemental? Don’t know if that is the answer, all I know is a little kindness goes a long way. Some acceptance into a group or a few friends.

Try being kind. It won’t hurt you.

  • Know that God is pleased with you when you are kind.
  • Do not fake your interest, instead show a real interest in that person.
  • Never gush!! How about being frank, but friendly and sincere.
  • Don’t let this be a one day thing, It should be an ongoing interaction that you really enjoy.
  • Encourage professional intervention in a non-threatening way.

We all have days where we struggle with out feelings, so maybe your kindness will be returned.

Moving furniture, the tense moments, the ingenious moments and then the genius moment.

Hectic last few weeks, but things are starting to fall into place. Needed to get a huge, very solid desk moved out of our television room. Sold it as we need to get a smaller piece of furniture into that space.

3 Adults and 2 very strong teen age boys all standing in the television room trying to figure out how the desk was originally gotten into the room. Remember son-in-law saying (9 years ago) this desk is never leaving this room, it will be sold with the house, when you decide to move. Planning on hopefully painting the television room next spring and he said paint around it! No one will move that desk to see if the wall was painted behind it!

Door taken off to the room. Hinges removed and finally the molding around the door way removed. Thank God the desk exited the room and was moved to the garage , just in time for the new owner to pick it up. He had actually thought he would put the desk on the seond floor at his home, but decided it would stay on the main floor after seeing it.

Moral of the story! Never buy a big study piece of furniture unless you have plenty of room to place the piece, an easy exit from the room, lots of friends or family that can help lift the furniture, lots of money that you can afford to pay someone to come and move it.

Thank you to everyone who helped!

New Office Furniture

It is always interesting when you begin to look at new office furniture, or furniture for the room you consider an office.

Things to decide when looking, how sturdy do you want the desk to be, how big is the area you will be calling your office? Do you want modern, sleek lines or do you want more comfortable, relaxing type of style. What color are you interested in. Who will be using the room ? Are you looking for bookshelves to match? What type of lightening will be needed. Is there a possibility clients may come to visit?

Picture shown seems to me to be rather stark and not really friendly. Needs some calming, scenic pictures, a nice lamp, of course your laptop and printer. How about a nice, pretty diffuser with the aroma of your favorite essential oil, for you to enjoy.
