It's What's in My Glass Tonight

I can't think of a better I'm going with this one.

 Each night (well, almost every night) I pick up a bottle of wine, look at the front label, read the back label, cut the foil, pull the cork and pour the wine into a glass.  Sound familiar?  It's a ritual that many of us do on a regular basis.  Then we usually take a photo of the bottle and post it to our friends to let them know what we are drinking for the evening.  It's like sharing it with the world...well maybe the Social Media world. :)

When we open a bottle of wine it's like opening a bottle of liquid passion.  It makes us want to share it (well most of us anyway - LOL) it makes us want to let others know what we are drinking.  The wine inside wants to be drank.  It wants to be shared.  It cries out " Experience the Passion."

So with that said - open a bottle this evening and share it with us...listen might just hear it speaking to you...

Valentine Passion

Well...we all know this day rolls out every year.  Yep...same day every year - February 14.  Some dread it, some embrace it.  I challenge you today to embrace it in a way that maybe you haven't done before. 

Find one person, whether it be a co-worker, family member, friend, neighbor, or maybe even be a stranger, and tell them how special they are.  Let that be your Valentine to someone today - the lifting up of someones spirit...

OK - ready - set - go...

You might just be surprised of how it actually touches you!

Watch Out for that Fork in the Road

According to Wikipedia "a fork in the road" is a metaphor, based on a literal expression, for a deciding moment in life or history when a major choice of options is required.

I was traveling to a friends house for a Superbowl party this past Sunday and had to use my Navigator.  Before I left the house I typed in the address and found the map directions to be quite far but it didn't look too difficult.  As I was driving, one of the instructions was to "take a right at the fork."  I started laughing, visualizing an actual fork sticking up out of the road.  The Navigator was telling me which way to turn and at that moment I realized it was much like my chosen career...the path I have chosen.  The directions were laid out for me and the destination was already known.  All I had to do was follow the instructions.  The plan was already in place. 

We often know exactly where we want to go, or what we want to do with our lives, but have no idea how to get there.  Writing it down and making a plan is often our first step.  Each twist and turn or stretch of road makes its way into our plan.  Then the distance is set with how long it may take us to get to each "fork in the road" and then to our final destination.

There have been several "fork in the road" moments in my life.  Was there a plan?  Sometimes yes and sometimes no.  At those times when I had no plan I found myself camping out a bit before traveling on.  (even in the literal sense, trust me, I don't do camping well... :) )

To get to where you want to be - get your directions first...don't try to wing it - you just might get lost. Keep your focus and follow your will find your way.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could just type our goals into a Life Navigator and get the directions...?

Pinot Passion

What a beautiful day in Sonoma...

OK...I admit it...I am passionate about wine.  Oh, I guess you already knew that.  :)  Today was a great day at the winery.  Just the thought of having a Passaggio Pinot Noir is exciting.  I went to pull samples of the Pinot.  (had to have a taste) Definitely some awesome flavors and aromas going on...Check out the label for this Pinot Noir!

I try to check the wines once a month to see how they are coming along.  Today was a good day - the Pinot Noir is tasting great...even if it is still very young.  This is going to be a great year...
