If today were your last day on earth, would you live it differently? Do you wonder how others perceive your generous spirit or worry that you will be taken advantage of? Living life with half empty or half full or, last day on earth attitude can change the way you think and more importantly, the way you treat others. Often, their cup is half empty whether you realize it or not. Smiling has become a thing of the past unless, of course, someone is taking a "selfie." Did you know that an open smile can radiate an open heart? It can and it does for every person you meet has a burden or a cross to bear of their own and the simple gift of your smile can lighten their step and improve their spirit. If this were your last day on earth- would you take the time to pat your dogs head, kiss your wife or husband or even tell your children that you are proud of them for their accomplishments at school and within their community? Everyone is in such a hurry these days and focused on "what they have to accomplish" that taking a moment to hold that door, saying please or thank you and even reaching back to help someone who has slipped or fallen down have become "extra steps" that many have turned a "blind eye" towards. If you went to bed this evening and considered the many times throughout your day and the many opportunities to extend your hand to a stranger, would you be pleased with your own answer? When strangers ask why I would create a business not based on earning income, they are often shocked by my answer, why not? Ironically, unless you've been poor, the expense a wedding or celebration is something you may never have had to worry about affording. At a very young age, my twin, Cindy Daniel and I visited nursing homes and brought gifts to strangers who were happy to see us. It was then that we learned the kindness of strangers who have no one were far more receptive to kindness than people we did know. Treating strangers with kindness and respect is free, it doesn't cost you anything. Rather than judging someone simply because they are different, embrace them along with their unique attributes and you will be glad that you took the time to learn their unique stories. Life is fragile take the time to live your own to the fullest by including those around you.

Cindy “I just work here” Daniel Continues To Crack Me Up…

My twin sisters idea of “working” is usually hilarious and, when interrupted during her “work” is often offended at the…

My son was recently describing my business to one of his friends. I listened intently for several reasons because it's often a complicated explanation that the listener needs a moment to digest and understand. You see, it's "complicated" mainly because I blended two existing companies in order to create The Pawning Planners. My son Robert explained "most people start a business planning to make a profit- my mom started a business to help people who didn't have much money that otherwise wouldn't enjoy a nice ceremony." You see, my sons description may be somewhat different from my own but the concept is quite accurate. When I told my twin sister, Cindy Daniel of my plan she (as usual) shrugged, sat down to complain about my coffee "being so strong that it could cross the room by itself and crawl right into her cup!" Fresh coffee being obviously more important than creating a business to involve my family while creating dream events. You see, the Texas Twins Events Team is made up of both family members and close friends who "pitch in" and assist the "Fearless Leader" (me). It isn't all wine and roses and as recently as last night, my financier husband and business manager stated a somewhat offense comment by saying "no offense but, you can be a tyrant and bossy usually up to and during set up for events!" You see, Mr Wortham was "hiding out" at his office with our dog Foxy Wortham rather than helping out at an event last weekend and when I called him out on it he informed me that "your vision for perfection exceeds ANY realistic goal and MOST of the time our entire team is terrified to piss you off!" Offended, I immediately responded that I'm not only "easy" to work with, I'm also funny, loving and kind. He laughed outrageously that I have no concept of a patient leader and my OCD issues often are so "unrealistic" that members of my team either don't tell me when something's wrong or worse, hide the issue in the hopes that I won't notice. I'm working on both my sense of humor and apparently unrealistic expectations for perfection but feel it necessary to address my goal has always been to exceed expectations of others while my family and team think I need to step back, breathe and occasionally give someone a hug! Oh well, ya all know I would jump in front of a train for my family and my team and I guess this season starting off with funerals depressed me and made me snappy so I'm working on a sunny side of life (#cindyism) interjection of my normal strict and stringent expectations of others. Pray for me as our events are often stressful enough without being requested to "smile" like I just returned from a cruise with my family!
