The Mad Hatter: [to Alice] You used to be much more..."muchier." You've lost your muchness.

Chalk art at the Uptown Shopping Center ...

My daughter and I watched "Alice In Wonderland" this past weekend and we really enjoyed it. Tim Burton has a way of making things very creative and interesting. And Johnny Depp was the perfect Mad Hatter.

PS: It was fun to bump into the above art creations at the Chalk Art Festival on Saturday and we decided we never ever want to loose our muchness :) ...!

My moments on the Dr. Karen show ...

(Back cover of the newly released second edition of "It's the Little Moments that Matter")

I met Dr. Karen Vizer on Twitter ... And was excited to be part of her Internet/radio show!
It was an hour long program and we had a great time together talking about self love, responsibility, finding your inner brilliance, living a life of passion, and more ... Yes ... I offered lots of ideas and suggestions on how to enjoy the little moments that matter.

Feel free to listen to the show:

OWN your life!

The other day as I was reading through the topics in my online in-box, there was one from that caught my attention. I signed up for her newsletter years ago and most often don't have time to read them. Sometimes the topic is just too good to pass up. And such a topic grabbed my eye and I felt compelled to open it up. I can’t remember what it was specifically but the thing that does stand out is the clicking journey I went on once I entered the Oprah site.

Join me! (Imagine yourself on the Oprah site with me). Look up and off to the right of the screen ... see that link? The one that says: Do you want to have your own show? I clicked on it (out of curiosity) and found myself really wanting to create a 3 minute clip pitching my idea for a show. Apparently, Oprah is on a hunt for a person to host their own show.

Yup you guessed it. I pulled out my video equipment and began to shoot a few ‘takes’ of my idea for a show. My idea is this: (working show title) Live a life you LOVE (one moment at a time). As part of the show I would invite people to share their attempts at chasing down a dream. I don’t know about you but I find it incredibly inspiring when I see others taking action to make something that matters to them REAL. I would also include segments on overcoming fear. I truly believe that fear is the main reason so many of us don’t ever begin what it is we so want to do.
I have not sent my 3 minute film piece into Oprah – but I think I might. One thing I know for sure – the more attempts we make at something the more we learn and the closer we get to making it happen.

If we never try – we’ll never see anything happen. What are you working on? What are you learning as you try the ‘seemingly impossible’?

Thought for the road: Stand up and OWN your life. Own every part of it. If you don’t …someone or something else will. Take charge and live a life you LOVE.
