    MISS YOU KAREN!!! Where are you?


    Put your frustrations in perspective, and most of them will disappear. Refuse to get caught up in them, and those frustrations will have no power over you.

    Small inconveniences and minor disappointments can lead to major disruptions if you let them. But you don't have to let them. When you feel frustration starting to overwhelm you, choose to step back a little bit. Sure, the situation may be absurd and outrageous, but is it really all that important?

    Your ego likes to make you blow the little things far out of proportion, because it's an easy way to feel important. Yet it can also be an enormous waste of your time and energy, not to mention the negative impact it has on your attitude.

    As much as possible, give the frustrations some distance. Get away from them to a place where you can calmly think through your options, and you'll find that there's almost never any need to be frustrated.

    Rise above the pettiness of wasteful frustrations, with a smile on your face and generosity in your heart. And you'll be able to clearly see a fast, effective, fulfilling way forward.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Zapper Team Motivation:

    Should you find yourself at a loss, wondering what life is all about and what your purpose is, be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity to wonder.

    Fresh perspective will ALWAYS change your scenery. If you are having a tough time take a step back and focus on ALL the many things you have in your life to be thankful for. Each one of us can find SOMETHING! Go ahead...give it a try. Be ready - your world will be a brighter place!

    Strength & Joy,

    Zapper Team Motivation:

    To solve a problem or to reach a goal, you...don't need to know all the answers in advance. But you must have a clear idea of the problem or the goal you want to reach.

    Set a plan, envision what is it you want and YOU WILL GET THERE!!

    Happy Monday - Enjoy the Week

    Hi Karen....miss hearing from you. Hope you are doing well. Drop me a line when you can!

    Zapper Team Motivation:

    Fresh opportunities:

    Appreciate your shortcomings for where they have brought you. Then release them and be free to rise above the limitations.

    Savor the disappointments one last time and remember all you have learned from them. Then let them go and eagerly look forward to new and fruitful experiences.

    Sincerely and completely forgive those who have brought you pain, including yourself. And feel the healing that immediately takes hold.

    Be truly thankful for having been through so much. Then get busy creating the best of what can be. Let go of the useless drama that is already over. Hold on to the positive value that you've gained from it all.

    Always there are new possibilities to explore, new ways to grow, and new worlds to experience. With each new now, the world is filled with fresh opportunities to be.

    Health and Happiness,
    Lisa D.

    Zapper Team Motivation:

    To be nobody but yourself--in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
