OAC 342 You've Got The Power with Kindness!  show art OAC 342 You've Got The Power with Kindness!

Today's show is all about how much this world needs more kindness. There are billboards around our town reminding people of that. And I forgot to mention that on my show.  This episode could go quite long if I quote all the signs of us needing more kindness towards each other. So I reflect on 3 articles that I just saw yesterday.  Two in our local Sunday paper.  This first one was on the Opinion page, by a Judge. The headline "Key to saving our nation is for us to love our neighbors." I think showing kindness to our neighbors is a great way to love our neighbors, don't you? ...

Wow!  It has been a day or two since I've been on here!  My last episode was during a lot of commotion and I took a step back and started enjoying things I had long put aside.  But I'm excited to come back with a new series called, "You've Got The Power" because we all do.  It just may take a lot to find it and use it.  Our ups and downs do not define us, how we work through them and appreciate the lessons we've learned, is what will. No one listening to me today is the same person you were when you heard me last, in any normal circumstances, but especially in our...

Ironically I actually talked about making a small shift on my show in July 2019.  Little did I know what a HUGE shift we would have a year later. My show today is after 2  1/2 months of silence from me.  I've been through the anger, the sadness, the hopelessness, the confusion, the anger again, the sleeplessness - and back again! I really was at a loss on what I might be able to say to inspire or enlighten you.  I was struggling to have some of my own.  I haven't found a way to do my card business because although a lot of people do it online, I've never been able to...

OAC 339 There's An Elephant In The Room?? show art OAC 339 There's An Elephant In The Room??

So I am always intrigued by expressions.  Where did they originate from and what in the world do they mean? I think most of us know what the expression 'Let's address the elephant in the room.' means, but what if you were not familiar with the phrase?  Wouldn't you be looking around for an elephant? What about the expression 'on a whim'?  What is a 'whim' and why would you anything on one? So I think you can see where I'm going with this.  As I did this show I tripped over a few more in just explaining this little language phenomenon. Wild ones that surprised me and...

I'm sending this out to put a smile on your face and a chuckle in your voice.  I think we all need to have a few extra ones of those right now. This is one of my fun adventures that turned into a giggle fest that I cherish and love to share. I'd love to hear if you can relate to this funny one!  I know as I've personally shared this silly moment, many of us have experienced the same moment, just not with the same end results. I also want to re-iterate what we all need to feel right now - being connected.  Are you picking up the phone and saying Hi to someone you've not spoken to...

In this crazy world of ours and I am grateful I got this done in February!  People are getting spring fever as they pray for spring fever.  And today's show is about just a few things I truly believe need repeating. If you have kids you will definitely relate to the title.  Listen in or watch the video version :-)    Hope to start doing 2 a month - so stay tuned and let me know if there is anything you feel bears repeating.

Wow, wow, wow!  I cannot believe it's been 6 years since I accidentally launched my show.  Originally I called it,  "Gabbin' With Gail   grows YOUR business"The Gail Foley Show And it was all pink tones and a caricature of me on the site!  Until a new author suggested no one would take me seriously. Listen in to hear about the twists and turns that navigated me to adopting the name I have today! Crazy how we evolve, but it's the way we grow and stay fresh in what we do.  With a bazillion podcasts out there to choose from...THANK YOU for taking time to listen...

I'm really curious about this because they can FLY!!!  Wouldn't you fly everywhere if you could???  I'm thinking I would.  But then I started to think about it. You know my perspective is always a bit twisted, but I think if you listen to this show you might get some insight too.  Sometimes Mother Nature can give you some great ideas.  This is what the geese surprisingly did for me.  Going to an event I saw them waiting on the side of the road to cross - half a flock, I swear!  So I started pondering :-) Here's the audio version - video is getting some...

I'm sure you've heard by now that there are BIG changes coming to FaceBook and Instagram.  I was lucky enough to stumble across a webinar by Sammie English  with the scoop. Now I have to admit most of it was over my head, but I believe I got the jest of it.  So I hope you listen in to my take on it and would love your comments and insight.   Do you prefer what's coming?  Do you think it will make a difference on your activity on social media, increase or decrease your time commitment? Will you be able to target your niche better to get the interaction that moves...

This is a message that has been popping up in front of me for almost a month.  A personal situation has pushed me to acknowledging what evidently I need to hear. The Episode picture is of a card I was given at a 'Brainstorming event' recently.  And then I saw a post by my dear friend Lisa Bechtol that really was the pivotal point for me and why it became the title of this Episode. Because as her quote said, "Forgiving does not make it okay.  It simply means you're moving on." So today, I hope if you are dealing with conflict of the heart this will speak to you or you know...

Do you dread de-cluttering?  I seem to get on a tangent and start without meaning to.  Once in awhile I'll put it on my 'To-Do' list which I really call, 'My On-Going' list, but that's when I have my daughter involved.  She is a Professional Organizer. 

What I've found in this practice, with or without her present, is that while sorting, discarding and 'Goodwilling'  I find long lost treasures I had forgotten about.

That quote that moved me.  The precious memory preserved in a picture.  The link to a cooking website - now that's funny, 'cause I don't like to cook.  However, I love to eat, so if it's easy I will make the attempt, thus the link.

But I think you've got the picture.  You find unexpected gifts within the piles you've unintentionally created.  Now maybe you did it on purpose, but I find stuff gets away from me. But I've been told I was the most organized sales rep in the advertising world, but then how can you not be if you need to follow up, etc.  I had to be, then.  

However, I'm not so organized now as I do my own biz, so piles accumulate and my energy is diffused.  So this is just my perspective on how important de-cluttering is to our life.

I'd love to hear from you on what your tricks are to keep you out from under excess accumulation :-)  And please share this - someone might need to hear what I found out.  And thank you so much for listening!

Passing On A Smile,

Gail
