Now What?

Untitled design (16)

Congratulations!  Remembering that day (Graduation) makes me smile… It was full of excitement!  The air was easy to breathe and the genie was fulfilling my every wish.  I laughed, dance and celebrated with family and friends and opened all the gifts…amazed at how thoughtful people were with their gift selection  (especially the ones in the envelope).

Feeling grateful and motivated was the order of the day, in fact that feeling lasted a few days…weeks even. Then reality set in …expectations were different; and I felt it.

Now what?

Move out of my parents home, buy a car and live the singles life (urban style)! I wanted it to happen, quick…Realizing the obvious, I knew the entry-level job that I was in wasn’t going to meet the bill. The work-study job was over and the designer things I purchased with my gift cards began to feel like a dumb thing to do. I immediately did the math…basic expenses plus recreation left me in deficit mode… additional income is what I wanted, needed – Now!

The fact that I graduated really meant my support system had changed drastically. I had decisions to make and soon…After-all, I dreamed about this time for many years and I wasn’t about to give up my “urban lifestyle” dream…So the search was on!

Find a better job, work overtime were the first options I thought of and exactly what I did; however having my own business was always my dream and finally years later, I’m a business owner.  I share this story to encourage you to follow your dream Now! It’s your time, embrace it! Do You!

“It has been said,most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65.Make an effort to live your life to the fullest.” – Les Brown

Are you a Highly Emotionally Intelligent person?

A very good read…simple truths…

Be Like Water

  1. You have a robust emotional vocabulary

All people experience emotions, but it is a select few who can accurately identify them as they occur. Our research shows that only 36 per cent of people can do this, which is problematic because unlabeled emotions often go misunderstood, which leads to irrational choices and counterproductive actions.

People with high EQs master their emotions because they understand them, and they use an extensive vocabulary of feelings to do so. While many people might describe themselves as simply feeling “bad,” emotionally intelligent people can pinpoint whether they feel “irritable,” “frustrated,” “downtrodden,” or “anxious.” The more specific your word choice, the better insight you have into exactly how you are feeling, what caused it, and what you should do about it.

  1. You’re curious about people

It doesn’t matter if they’re introverted or extroverted, emotionally intelligent people are curious about everyone around them. This curiosity is…

1951 Packard Patrician 400 at the 2015 Radnor Hunt Concours

Just beautiful, had to share!

Mind Over Motor

1951 Packard Patrician Front 1//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

Due to the phrase “Fabulous Fifties”, everyone seems to think that all cars sold in America during the first full decade after World War II had loud paint, snarling V8 engines, towering tail fins, and lashings of insane chrome. The opposite, in fact, was true, especially in the years preceding 1955. In fact, most cars were notably understated, and still used muted colors and drab interior schemes as the cost was lower. Of course, a Packard could be drab in color and muted in trim, but the cost would most certainly not be low. This Patrician 400, looking quite stately in black, has a custom interior designed by Dorothy Draper, so the interior was not “drab”. Packard offered this series as its flagship in 1951, and 9,001 orders were taken–mostly in black. It’s not as flashy or as obvious as the equivalent Cadillac or Lincoln of the period, but…
