Brew Your Best Life in 2015

015Good Morning from Maine! #Gratitude​

Welcome to PERCOLATE Daily.

I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today and for the next several days, we are following along with The PERCOLATE Process.

I also taped a 50 minute free audio for you to listen to.  Click to listen:  Brew Your Best Life in 2015.

When we Percolate, we gradually improve ourselves and others as our message we share with the world expands.  When we are our best self, we touch the lives and hearts of others in positive, compassionate and often enlightening ways.

To begin Percolating and being our best, we must first understand that our life opens up when we shift our energy into our passions and talents that tap into our soul.  This, combined with developing and using your own set values, goals and a belief and behavior system, will support the lifestyle changes you wish to make to brew your best life. You go where you place your energy.

The 9 points which make up The PERCOLATE Process will help you ultimately “Percolate Peace,” and will help you profoundly shift your life – and – you’ll have some fun along the way.

ThePercolateProcess

JOURNAL

To begin, ask yourself these questions:

  • What footprints am I leaving?
  • Am I making the world a better place? In what ways?  What is holding me back?
  • How am I living my day-to-day life?
  • How do I feel most days?
  • Are there people in my life who have my back and vice-versa?
  • What’s my why?
  • What are my values, goals, beliefs and how is my behavior?
  • Does my behavior match my values, goals and beliefs?
  • What’s the pace of my life like?
  • Do I feel stuck?
  • What are my passions and talents?
  • How do I respond to rejection and criticism?
  • Does it shut me down or do I never give up?

Good Morning from Maine!  #Gratitude 

Welcome to Percolate Daily.

 I hope you follow along with me each day, perhaps even consider using a journal to write your thoughts as we go.  I also would love your comments and I’m sure others would appreciate them too. In my book, Percolate – Let Your Best Self Filter Through, today, we are following along with Point 7: Chillax and Have an Iced Coffee.  Let’s have a chat about joy.

Percolate Joy

Percolate-Joy

When I opened my email this morning, I could hear joy in hearts, minds and souls. A few folks reached out to me with these thoughts:

“Ever wake up and just feel that you’re going to have am amazing day? Woke up this morning and just felt very positive, must be all the percolating I’ve been doing:)”

and

“This book has come to my life at the perfect moment as I am trying to decipher the voice inside of me that you talk about in Percolate.”

Joy is all around you.

It’s  choice you make to bring into your daily life and moments.

As you walk or run around today think about your joy and intention, love, gratitude, acceptance, and more in the footprints you leave.

You go where you place your energy.

Percolate-Kindness

Let’s Percolate about kindness.

I probably don’t need to remind you to be kind.  However, you may be feeling like you want to remind someone else to be kind.  When someone is unkind to you, someone else or to something, you instantly know it.  It stings, it hurts and it can be just flat-out bothersome, particularly when you feel, perceive or are aware that the unkind behavior or comments are coming from a real intention or deliberate place or even ignorance.

Take yesterday, for example, with a review I received on Amazon.  For Percolate, there are oodles of kind, sweet and loving reviews and apparently one really nasty one. Several friends of mine drew my attention to the comment asking if I could have it removed, because they so strongly disagreed with it.  This all prompted me to poke my nose  around and look at the customer reviews for other best-selling books. I was saddened to see most had the same type of similar, hurtful remarks on their books too and some much more cruel than the one I had received.    They were unkind and uncalled for.

I had two responses:  The first was to set up my own reviewer account and give out very positive reviews to books, people and other items I think are the best and worthy of your time and attention.   This Percolates Kindness into the world and more positive, real, credible and helpful reviews.  (I urge you to do the same if you have time.)

My next response was to send love, angels,  kindness, grace and compassion to the reviewer of the nasty remark for Percolate, as the person must surely need it.

My point is that kindness starts with each one of us.

What we put out into the world, we get back in measure.

Sometimes we need a kindness reminder and wake up call.

Sometimes, unmistakably, people act kind toward us, when they could be the most mad or irritated. They overlook our mistakes, crank, negativity and so forth to help us learn and accept kindness and love by percolating kindness and grace to us in hopes we receive it and pass it on – perhaps breaking a cycle.

Kindness fosters Love, Grace and Gratitude.

Can you be kind 24/7? Maybe – Maybe Not, but generally I find most people, including myself, to be kind, mannered, graceful and so forth. We all have our moments…  interesting though, we have control over ourselves, our moments and how we behave by taking responsibility.

Kindness and Grace are the types of ways to Percolate where the behavior never gets old, cold or stale.

Goodness is timeless.

Grace is timeless.

Gentleness is timeless.

Gratitude is timeless.

Kindness is timeless.

JOURNAL

Are you kind to others?

What does kindness look like to you and how could you be more kind and loving to others?

Has anyone ever been unkind to you?  What would happen if you approached the situation with love instead of more negativity?

Is your behavior in line with your values?

Are you living a life of gratitude and awareness?

Have a conversation with yourself about kindness and write down 10-15 ways you could be more kind to yourself and others.

Ask someone this question, “What do you need and how can I be more kind to you?”

PERCOLATE

Be Kind.
