Category: Attitude Matters

Your attitude impacts your level of success in most areas of your life. Strive to have a positive attitude in most situations and you will experience greater joy in your life. Of course there are moments when keeping a positive attitude is a bit too challenging. That’s okay. Forgive yourself (if needed) and move on.

Ep101: Transitions and Transformations

As I approached the 100th episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I started feeling like it was time to make some changes.

I decided it was time to leave the past behind me and step into a brighter, bolder future.

Today starts a new adventure!

Ep100: Secrets to Living Happily Ever After

In this 100th episode, I split the Secrets to Living Happily Ever After into five key categories.

It was quite enlightening (and a bit surprising) to spot the patterns.



Show Notes:

I did snap a selfie upon completing the episode. Like I said in the episode, I was not camera ready. HA HA

I also noticed when editing the episode (I did cut out some coughing and sneezing), that I pretty much handled the episode as I originally planned it in my mind. I had wanted to do more prep work to tell you how many episodes covered each of the “Happily Ever After” categories I shared.

My modified plan (which I did NOT end up doing) was going to be to read you a few of the “Happily Ever After” secrets and talk about them individually.

Overall, despite the sniffling and coughing, I’m satisfied with this episode. So once again, just showing up (featured in Ep085 and which would fall into the “freedom of choice” and “having courage to be yourself / trusting yourself / believing in yourself” categories) proves to be one secret to living happily ever after.

Ep099: Too Many Hats or So Many Hats

Each of us wears many hats, fills many roles, in our worlds.

Are you wearing hats that are a good fit for you?

Do they match your style?

Are you weighted down by wearing toooooo many hats or are you excited to pick from sooooo many hats?

Would love to read your comments on the hats you are wearing.

Ep098: Own Your Inhibitions

I realized as a 20-year-old airman in the US Air Force that alcohol was an amazingly easy way to become more like the person I wanted to be. I could be fun, funny, and flirty. But I could only be that person when I was drinking. I decided that wasn’t good enough.

Ep097: The Silliest Name in Social Science

Some people think the Law of Attraction is overly simplistic, unrealistic and that positive visualization is flawed.

This week, I share my discovery of WOOP, a negative visualization practice, that actually fits in with the LOA principles I’ve been practicing in my daily life.
