Lessons from a Recovering Doormat

Lessons from a Recovering Doormat


Happy Turkey Day!

I’ll be away for the long weekend and won’t be posting again till next week. I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving, and the hope that you’ll find LOTS of things to be thankful for!

Why I’m Grateful (just a few of the gassillion things I could list if I had more more time)
My health is terrific!
I earn a living doing what I love.
I have a fabulous sunny, spacious, quiet, rent stabilized apartment in midtown Manhattan.
I still feel 21.
I’m happy with who I am and how I look.
My self-confidence is soaring.
I get up every day smiling.
I have wonderful friends and family.
I’m getting into better shape as I get older.
I’m writing this looking out at beautiful forest and mountains in the Berkshires.

I’m not a DoorMat anymore!!!

Enjoy your holiday dinner and don’t get guilty if you indulge. It takes the pleasure out of an occasional splurge. I’m delighted to share a yummy meal with my family and will enjoy it all guilt free. We have almost as many pies as people! But, I know better than to take too many rich leftovers home with me. Am about to go out for a power walk and some running in the hills surrounding me before I sit down to feast.

I wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving that lasts through to next years holiday!

    Have a great Thanksgiving! Being grateful is a nice change from our overly stressed, survival approach.

Get Heard!

We're often so proud of ourselves for making the effort to communicate that we don't pay attention to our approach. Becoming aware of how we present our thoughts and ideas can get them across more clearly. Simply paying more attention to yourself can help: is this how I'd like someone to talk to

Get Good Customer Service
Do you complain about customer service people? If you were brought up to avoid causing problems, you may keep your mouth shut about bad service or defective products, and complain to friends.
