Let go of old things that won’t allow you to move forward! Stop thinking about what you did in your past, or what someone did to you in the past and move on! I know sometimes it can be hard to do, but for your own well being and to be able to reach your goals, this is something that you should work on daily.
This question has been asked of me by men and women alike. In most cases, I am thinking, "If you have to ask the question, you may already have your answer." But in some cases, it may be that the person is in the dark of why people don't approach them. Because the propensity for others to approach us can impact our relationships and employability, it is necessary that I address the subject, cause, and effect of being approachable.

Let's start this week with positive thoughts.
Let's forget about all of the disappointments of last week and focus on the wonderful things that are in store for us this week. Let's forgive someone who hurt our feelings last week and remember that we are all humans with flaws. Let's complete the projects that we started last week, but decided to put them off for a later date. Let's remember to show gratitude and to say "thank you" when someone helps us out.

There's no doubt that managing critters in the landscape can be a challenge especially as food supplies start to dwindle. If you are battling with rabbits, deer, groundhogs or other wildlife, don't let down your guard as the growing season begins to wind down.

Have you ever let someone steal your joy?
Have you ever been so excited about something and as soon as you told someone about your dreams or plans, they said something negative and then down went your joy? Why do we allow people to do this to us? It is usually someone very close to us who we think should be as excited as we are. The problem with this is that we have to remember that just because we are excited about something, doesn't mean that they will be also.

Here in Minnesota and around the country, school is back in session.
Although parents send their children off to school everyday and expect them to do well, their involvement can add an important extra ingredient that will increase their children's success. It has been proven that parent participation is the ingredient that makes the difference. Parents' active participation with their child's education at home and in school brings great rewards and can have a significant impact on their children's lives. Everyday in our community, children are left to decide the value of education in their lives. If we are going to have success, this cannot continue. We as parents, grandparents, and people of influence, must be involved.
