This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!
I may look young, but my memory is starting to go. Sometimes I can’t remember what I did the day before or the day before that. However it is still good enough to remember the bubbles of brilliance I learn along the way.
1. We tend to devalue ourselves.
I did a great exercise on Friday where I listed all of my skills and what they are worth “on the market.” I’ve always known that I have skills or ones that can be developed that can lead me to earn more, but usually stay where I am in favour of losing something, like the flexibility of being a business owner. Over the past week I have been downloading intuitive signs and re-reading The Art of Non-Conformity which is driving me to research whether a business idea that I have is one worth pursuing. When I get the chance I may be sending a survey your way.
2. Our biggest dreams can be our biggest fears.
On Saturday’s Ladies Who Lunch event we did a great exercise about visualizing our dreams and listing our values. After analyzing my answers I realized again that I have to find out whether this new business idea is one I should do – the difference between that and the business I am running now is that it can help more people than my current business, which helps clients spread their messages. It is just another form of helping people through business.
3. The healing power of music.
Leo’s mom moved out of her house this past weekend and my sister received a big gift from her: an old piano. I had forgotten 80% of the songs I’d learned or taught myself growing up, but the ones I remembered took me back to the same feeling I had when I had learned them. Music is a very powerful memory tool and when I think about my niece being able to learn to play and what she can carry with her in her own life, it is quite inspiring. Next Sunday I hope to see The Jackson 5 play at the PNE – one of the most famous “boy bands” living today.
A new day always has something new to teach – think about that today!
