the return

I have been in transit since 5:00am and got home less than an hour ago. Still wearing last night's make-up and still probably a bit hungover from last night's big farewell outing. It was quite a send-off. Haven't had more than an hour of sleep since Wednesday night. Couldn't sleep much on the plane because of crying children, but it gave me time to write nearly 30 pages in the paper journal I got specifically for this trip.

There were plenty of adventures, surprises, breathtaking natural and man-made sights, new friendships formed, endless laughter, and even kisses. It was probably the best vacation of my life.

Still processing everything and wondering how much to share. Might need to keep this one to myself.

My pillow beckons, but I wanted to drop by and say hello...

Now is no time to get shy. Share all the details.

It's going to be hard for her to describe her vacation. I don't think we're allowed to know what country Dolly visited.

Kisses? I'm not surprised. Dolly can find someone to kiss her at a gay man's funeral.

Thirty pages in your journal?

I'm in the middle of attending a VERY large marketing conference and one of the marketers commented that he has a journal he writes in every morning.

And, so do all of his students. Really interesting because a lot of other successful people mention it.

Take Tony Robbins as an example. When I used his advice and started using his morning power questions I noticed my life improved. Now, I do it quite naturally but I think there is more benefit to physically writing the answers out.

1. What am I happy about in my life right now? What about that makes me happy? How does it make me feel?
2. What am I excited about in my life right now? What about that makes me excited? How does that make me feel?
3. What am I proud of in my life right now? What about that makes me proud? How does that make me feel?
4. What am I grateful for in my life right now? What about that makes me grateful? How does that make me feel?
5. What am I enjoying most in my life right now? What about that do I enjoy? How does that make me feel?
6. What am I committed to in my life right now? What about that makes me committed? How does that make me feel?
7. Who do I love? Who loves me? What about that makes me loving? How does that make me feel?

Hello back at you Dolls.

Had a feeling you were going to have a great trip. These kinds of 'experiencal education' holidays usually leave a lasting impression, especially for 1st timers.
