Big Improvements for the Innkeeper and I'm Looking Forward to Tomorrow ..(8-6-11)

    How are you, this weekend?

I rested; seeing the San Francisco Giants play, I managed doing. They are going through a rough patch, but they are still in first place, in their division.  They will always be my team. My body spoke loudly today that I needed to put on the brakes.  I did. Click here, for more information on being in Halt a place you don't want to be.

Treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding
you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again. (Og Mandino)
My gratitudes for Saturday: 

1. I'm moving to, you guessed it, the island town of Alameda. I see most of my clients there. My life, commute and social life will get easier, because of this move. I'm thankful for the convenience it will be, living there. I'm seeing the results that happen when we "work" our Vision. Part of mine was moving to this town. It's now a reality.
2. I love the town. It reminds me of the town I lived in as a kid---Niles, Fremont, but a bit bigger.
I enjoy safety, community and harmony, all of which will increase, when I move on the 15th.
3. I enjoyed my time with two clients yesterday and a business partner yesterday. I love seeing results and enjoying clear communication.
4. Tomorrow, I hope to buckle down and take care of paperwork. Sometimes it can be overwhelming, if I'm not careful. I appreciate diligence; it helps me to tackle daunting tasks. All I have to do is do "the next right thing."
5. I'm grateful having colleagues who are a tremendous support, when I need it. I'm glad for my supportive community; I'm not alone. Many who are committed to my welfare: I'm a lucky guy.
6. I met with friends last night, always a great way to end the work week. I'm thankful for fellowship with good friends.
7. I found out that funding that I have may extend for another six months---that would be fabulous!
8. I'm getting a watch. Mine is broken. I use all the features on the watch I buy. I like anything that allows me to be more effective.
9. I'm going to see a friend tomorrow that I enjoy visiting. I look forward to my time.
10. I'm extricating myself from a situation that has been unpleasant. I'm glad that I care for myself enough that I don't accept unacceptable behavior.
11. The readership has quadrupled from what it was a month ago, in this inn. And a month ago, it had doubled from the previous two months. I'm happy this inn meets the needs of others.
     Most of you know the routine: I ask if you could please share at least three things for which you are grateful. I try to set the example.Would it be possible to share yours? It's not that hard, really. Why not try exercising your gratitude muscles. you spirit will be glad you did. I enjoy reciprocity, fellowship and equality.
