Do You, Boo

Fun. Feisty. Fabulous! kicks off with an important announcement. As of this week, the podcast will move from weekly to bi-weekly.

The theme for tonight’s episode is Do You, Boo! or Do You! if you aren’t a fan of that particular term of endearment. Basically, as we get older, we often become surer of ourselves, what we want, what we’ll tolerate and what we need to fully express ourselves.

To do you, you don’t have to get upset, defend yourself or second-guess your choices. You just have to find what works for you and do it. Let judgements go and embrace your choices and the choices of others (even if they aren’t yours) with tact and class.

Whether it is your choice of a mate, career direction or just everyday personal choices, you don’t need anyone’s permission to live your life your way.

Living in Gratitude

You’ve heard it. You’re supposed to “have an attitude of gratitude.” But what does that really mean? Sure, it is easy to be grateful when things are generally going well or when you’ve had a good day. But, aren’t you supposed to have that grateful attitude when things are going well? The question becomes how do you do it? Not vague platitudes but how do you actually, step-by-step, apply gratitude when it isn’t easy or intuitive.

Jean Day is a contributing writer in the book, Live in Gratitude Daily: The Key to Love, Joy and Abundance, uses the powerful combination of daily devotionals and journaling to assist the reader in developing the habit of gratitude and taking the action to apply it to their daily lives.

A psychology professor and practicing Buddhist, Jean is familiar with practices and habits that can improve your life from the inside out. Join us as we look for the practical inside of the esoteric concept of gratitude.

Max Takes On New York City

One of the best part of podcasting is meeting really interesting people, several of whom I have had the honor of getting to know and proudly call friend. Maxwell Ivey is one of those people. He’s a blogger, a coach and a business man. He’s also completely blind. What I appreciate about Max is that he has never let his lack of sight stop him.

In fact, he recently boarded a train in his hometown of Houston bound for New York City. The Big Apple is intimidating for sighted people. A lot of people wouldn’t have even attempted such a trip; but Max isn’t a lot of people. He found an Air BnB and someone to accompany him around time and he was off. Times Square, Wicked on Broadway, riding the subway and the ferry. He had a true New York experience.

So he is stopping by to share his story and how it is that he manages to stay so positive and adventurous. Max is one person who could come up with a ton of excuses but he doesn’t. In fact, the word excuse doesn’t even seem to be in his vocabulary.

Join us as we celebrate adventure, gusty moves and embracing life.

Social Media Resolutions

Remember when you set up your first social media profile? Remember how fun it was? You reconnected with old friends and classmates. You shared photos with family and friends. You logged on and had fun. It was enjoyable. Well, that was then, this is now.

In the past two weeks, I have heard of harrowing crimes that were proudly broadcast on Facebook Live and Snapchat. I have stopped commenting and even reading comments on posts from news stations and magazines. The hate and vitriol is just too much. I have had my intelligence questioned, been belittled and demeaned and even had racial slurs hurled at me.

Yes, the tone and even the content of social media has changed. I’ll admit, I’m on it a lot less nowadays. However, I gave it some thought and came up with 8 Social Media Resolutions. Resolutions, to me anyway, is synonymous with wishful thinking. So, these are eight resolutions I wish people would undertake.

Listen to the show and then you can find all eight in a post on the Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/funfeistyfab).

Resolutions Don't Work ...

New Year’s! It’s a time when everyone gives themselves a big do-over. The slate is wiped clean. We give ourselves a fresh start. Optimism is in the air and it is infectious. The one thing that is guaranteed to put a big damper on the positivity can be summed up in one word: resolutions. Once upon a time, almost 90% of Americans set resolutions. Now it is hovering at around 40% and falling every year. Resolutions have fallen out of favor because, often, they don’t work.

Over time resolutions became synonymous with failure. You make them but in the back of your mind, you don’t really think you’ll succeed. You’ll start with flash and end with a fizzle weeks or maybe even months later. People got tired of being sick and tired and a time-honored tradition quickly fell out of favor.

It’s high time for a new outlook. Resolutions are dead. Let’s not try to revive them. Let’s look at something new. I created Golden Goals. As a trainer, I have trained several goal-setting methods. Along the way, I realized there were some serious gaps, and gaps that affect your ability to succeed with your goal. The Golden Goals Method fills in these goal-setting potholes. It’s time that we dispel the wishful thinking of the outdated and ineffective resolution and replace them with action and planning – things that really work.

Golden Goals are described and all five steps are discussed in this episode.
