Monday Mo-TEA-vation for you. 😉 😂
“The only time you should ever look back is to see how far you’ve come.”
Do you sometimes wish you were farther along than you are? Whether it’s in your personal or professional life or both, notice, when you look back, you can see how far you’ve come. Yeah for you! Don’t stay there though, you’re not going that way. Acknowledge your growth and keep sowing, growing and going forward! Reminder: every step, no matter how small, is important and makes a difference. What are some ways you are helping yourself and others to go forward?
Learn something new, start a new healthy habit, make a new friend or more, give a gift, volunteer, donate your time and/or resources; you have lots of choices.
Leave a legacy of inspiration and hope to everyone in your life.
You can always encourage, empower and inspire people everywhere, everyday!
These virtues bring meaning to your life and the lives of others.
When you share your abundance, talents and blessings, whether it’s a smile, a hug, a cuppa, a word of encouragement or whichever way you choose, you will feel better and receive blessings because of your kindness. You wanna do this don’t you?
What are some baby steps you’ve taken that moved you forward and helped someone else?
Share one or more of your goals and dreams below! You can do this #irl too!
Gather your friends and let’s plan and book your event today! #clickonlinkinbio
⏰ 🗓 👩 👸 🙏
You can share a cuppa, goodies and conversations together knowing you are empowering women!

You made it to Fri-yay! Hope your week was fantastic.
What goals were you slaying this past week? Working, creating, gathering, planning, connecting, sending, learning? Name them...there are more! You have those moments of tediousness too don’t you?! 😑 You probably need rest and #metime
Do you sometimes forget to take time for yourself, because you’re busy managing your life, family, and business? While it is beneficial to continually pursue professional development along with personal growth, remember it is also in your best interest to take time for yourself. Your morale, self-awareness, belief in yourself, your overall health increases and you will feel better so you can do the things you need and want to!
11 kinds of rest for your “me-time”...
Alone time at home
Alone time away from home (yes!)
Solitude to recharge
A rest from responsibilities
A safe place to pray and meditate
Time in Nature
Read something inspiring
Light a candle (or more)
Permission to not be helpful
Write your thoughts
Go for a walk, dance or workout (ok, so it’s not physical rest, though it’s an energy-giver which will make you feel rested and fabulous!)
Do you practice these? How do you feel when you’ve taken time for yourself? Better frame of mind, more relaxed and rejuvenated right? Ready to take care of the important things in your life! 😃
Practicing these here at Signature Experience Events. We’re also doing small things with great love. (loosely paraphrased - Mother Teresa) Enthusiastically planning personalized events for you and creating teaboxes for you and your friends! #givingback to Friendship Bridge empowering women, helping them with education and microloans for their businesses, which support their families. Imagine it, feel it...how empowered these women will be, when they will receive your support because you are a kind, cheerful giver #spreadingjoy (Friendship Bridge) 🙏
Name your tasty treats, and gifts you will order (you can choose) for your #teaboxes so you can savour while you are relaxing alone or with your friends!

Do you know? It is “Be Kind to Humankind Week?
You think this should be everyday, not only one week of the year, don’t you? 😉
Your word of the day:
Especially for you...a few quotes and words of kindness.
Trusting they bring you joy today and always!
“Kind hearts are the gardens,
Kind thoughts are the roots,
Kind words are the flowers,
Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds.
Fill it with sunshine, kind words and kind deeds.”
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882) American Scholar, Poet and Educator
“be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another” Eph. 4:32 NLT
Notice...your life and the lives of those around you will feel wonderful because you are kind.
Human Kind - Be both. Wishing you a day filled with kindness.
“You are some kind of wonderful!” Did you think of the song by Grand Funk Railroad when you read these words? Maybe, maybe not, depending on your age category. They were a popular hard-rock bank from the 70’s. 🎼 🎸 🥁 🎤 🎹
Whether you drink coffee or tea (or wine? 🍷 😉), fill your cup with kindness and then share it with everyone always including yourself!
Who will you share a cup of kindness with today? 🍵 ☕️💕
Book your afternoon tea, garden party, girl’s gathering or alfresco boutique #event today, so you can have fun while you are sharing kindness with your friends! A few dates left in September. 🔜 🗓
❤️ 😍 😊 😃 🤗 🍵 ☕️ 🍰 🧁 🎉 💐 🌸 🌺 🌻 🌹

Monday! A new day and a new week for you to learn! 📖 🧠
How are you on this almost Fall Monday?
Are you energized and ready for the day?
What are you working on and learning today?
Monday motivation...Energized after a.m. “Yogaburn” - Phase 3! Motivated, learning and getting s!$t done! Focusing on decisive action.
You may have noticed, over here...a lover of all things learning...courses, webinars, reading, writing, stories, quotes and sage advice. Beneficial in everyday life, personally and professionally.
Morning time of devotion, mindfulness, reading and yoga workout done! Working on “Goals for today.” 💻 📖 ✍️ 🧘♀️ ✅
Keep learning! Share what you’ve learned with others.
"The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change." - Carl Rogers
Definition of learning - Merriam-Webster
1: the act or experience of one that learns
2: knowledge or skill acquired by instruction or study
3: modification of a behavioral tendency by experience
about education, reading and your brain.
As a firm believer in and supporter of education, I “back this up” by giving back to Friendship Bridge (registered Non-Profit organization) which empowers and educates women in their professional and personal lives and eliminates poverty.
What are some things that help you stay motivated and keep learning?
Go ahead, share your tips in the comments!

You’ve probably heard the “eff” word recently, haven’t you? Yeah that one...FALL! Or Autumn if you prefer. You can feel it in the air the last few days, (that rain has been a welcome relief hasn’t it? We need more of that pouring down for the fires) If you’re a summer lover, you’re probably not looking forward to Fall.
It’s almost time to say goodbye to summer! Already? Major summer lover over here; favourite season! The splendour of Nature, multitude of colours and magnificent artwork of the season is beautiful!
It’s almost time for you to get out your warm sweaters, socks, and boots. Everyone loves boots, don’t they? 😉 A time to drink hot beverages; tea, hot chocolate and ciders. Ahhh 😌 so soothing.
Sit back and relax in a comfy chair and wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, curl up with a hot cup of tea, a good book and some calming music. Pure bliss! Imagine that feeling and savour these special moments!
You may often reach for a cuppa java, to increase your alertness and energy levels. Oh yeah, love a good cup of hot, strong, black coffee over here.
Usually early afternoon, it’s time to brew a steaming cup of tea. Ah, the anticipation and the pleasure of tasting it even before it’s steeped. What a wonderful feeling. It’s even better when you are together with a friend or several friends! That will be so much fun!. In person, or socially-distanced if you're more comfortable; you could “meet” for tea via Zoom, could you not? You can plan an “Autumn Afternoon Tea” 😉
You know tea is good for you, don’t you? You get amazing health benefits because tea is full of antioxidants and plant compounds. You’re wondering...what are antioxidants??
An·ti·ox·i·dant - an(t)ēˈäksədənt,ˌanˌtīˈäksədənt/
Whether you choose green, black, oolong or herbal tea, you are making a good choice for your health.
“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the whole world revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” - Thich Nhat Hanh
Gathering with your friends, sharing beverages and #teaboxes is good for your health too.

You may be thinking...it’s Monday again?! That's OK.
Start your day with a grateful heart and do what you love.❤️

When you are doing what you love, you will feel more engaged, enthusiastic, passionate and productive.
You will take action, do the work, learn more, continue to improve, serve others better, become a better person and leader and be fulfilled in your personal and professional life.

Do you enjoy sharing and giving? Yeah you do!! Same over here! 😃 Friendship, laughter, tears, kindness, tea, coffee, food and delectable desserts, books, and gifts and much more. You can share hugs too! (yeah if you’re a hugger, since you can now reach out and touch someone if you want to and they want it, as it is somewhat post-covid)
When you share, you feel better, because it is good for your health, promotes gratitude, empathy and compassion. It releases neurochemicals that result in a sense of well-being.
You can share and you deserve...
“Ask yourself, when was the last time you were kind to a stranger? Or, the last time a stranger
was kind to you? How did their kindness make you feel? Hopefully, you received a positive
reaction from it, as it is inherent to our nature. Kindness is something that is built into our human
genome. From birth, we rely heavily on others to care for and nurture us – trusting in the
kindness of our parents and loved ones to help us grow. Each time you are kind to someone or
someone is kind to you, it is scientifically proven to make you happier. As people commit
random acts of kindness, gratitude increases – releasing positivity into the planet. The person
receiving the act of kindness is shown, in turn, to be kinder to others they come in contact with
throughout the remainder of their day. Like a rock thrown into a pond, the positive vibrations
from acts of kindness ripple out into the unseen energy fields – positively affecting the
collective.” #linkinbio for more
What are some of the ways you enjoy sharing?
You can share teaboxes; gifts of love, with your special peeps! Your brain will love you because dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin are released, you will feel enhanced pleasure and you will strengthen the bond in your relationships.
Reach out and touch your device #clickonlinkinbio
What are you doing today to share, care and encourage? Remember to fill your cup too.

"Outdoors is where we need to focus right now. So being able to have those important connections that we need, but do them in a way that's not going to put people at risk.”
“You can meet friends outside and have a coffee, have a chat, have a connection, have a picnic in the park” said Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry back on March 11, 2021.
Many years before that Elsie De Wolfe (1859 - 1950) said:
“Eating outdoors makes for good health and long life and good temper, everyone knows that.”
Good food is sweeter when you share it. It makes for great times and memories!
You love being outside sharing delicious food with loved ones and friends right?!
Being outside is fun and scientifically proven good for you! It’s good for your soul, brain and body. It boosts your energy, immune system, vision, enhances creativity, restores your focus, offers free #aromatherapy and natural sunlight mitigates pain.
Psychologists say, exposure to nature releases pressures of life. You’ve experienced various pressures and pain over the last 1-½ years. It’s time to take care of you and your health!
Being together evokes feelings that remind you of important things in life: relationships, caring, sharing and community! ♥️
“Everyday is a picnic when you’re with friends.” - Winnie the Pooh
🙋♀️ Who will you share, sip, savour and have a party with?
