Yesterday is heavy… so, put it down!

By Blog No Comments

We were having our weekly family Zoom call today and my wife shared this saying that she saw online: “Yesterday is heavy… put it down!” What a simple and powerful phrase. It ties in well to one of my prior articles “Lessons to remember in a year to forget” and a webinar “5 Lessons Learned from a Year to Forget.” One of the lessons is that you can’t always help what happens to you, or how it makes you feel, but you can control how long you allow yourself to feel that way.

By Blog No Comments

It’s pretty clear that 2021 is going to be a busy year for doing weddings. The latest release of The Knot 2020 Real Weddings Study [COVID-19 Edition] shows that nearly half the weddings from 2020 were postponed, most of those to 2021.

Lessons to remember in a year to forget!

Lessons to remember in a year to forget!

By Blog 2 Comments

Lessons to remember in a year to forget!Saying that 2020 is a year that most of us would like to forget is a statement of the obvious. It’s always easier to look at the negative that’s in front of us, but there have been some bright spots. I’ll agree that finding those bright spots is sometimes hard when the dark cloud looms large. There are always things to be grateful for, if you’ll focus your attention on them. I’m grateful to speak with my 90-year old Dad every morning. Hearing his voice and knowing he’s safe and healthy is a good start to our day. Read More
