Posted by Catherine Morgan on July 18, 2007

Hi everyone!

I’m really excited about going to Chicago next week for the BlogHer Conference. I was considering just posting a comment that I would have no posts for this particular week. But instead, I decided to ask a few other bloggers if they would consider contributing to my blogs while I was away, as guest bloggers. And the response was wonderful, we have some great bloggers that will be posting here next week. Since I am going to be so busy, and I plan on having these posts “auto-published” throughout next week, I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to these wonderful guest bloggers today.

If You Want To Attract Love, Be A Loving Person — by Catherine Morgan

Did you ever notice that angry people tend to attract other angry people? That greedy people, enjoy the company of other greedy people? Just like we choose to associate with people in our lives that have similar interests as we do, we are also unconsciously choosing people that are putting out that same emotional “frequency” as we do.

So, who cares? Well, you should. That is; if you are interested in “attracting” people into your life that are kind, caring, and loving, and not angry, bitter, and hateful.

Is It Ever Too Late To Follow Your Dreams?

Posted by Catherine Morgan on July 6, 2007

IS IT EVER TOO LATE TO FOLLOW OUR DREAMS? — by Catherine Morgan

With the pressures of daily life, do any of us really have time to think about our dreams? Do we even know what our dreams are? Kids know what their dreams are, just ask them…What do you want to be when you grow up? It is always such and easy answer for them. But once we do grow up, then what? Is is too late for us?

What if we never realized, that we might have been forgetting to follow our dreams? Worse than that, what if we thought we were following our dreams, but it turned out that we were living a nightmare? Then what? Is it too late? Do we get a second chance at our dreams?

What Are Life’s Greatest Lessons? Could It Be Our Failures Teach Us More Than Our Successes?

WHAT ARE LIFE’S GREATEST LESSONS? — by Catherine Morgan

When we begin to take our failures non-seriously, it means we are ceasing to be afraid of them. It is of immense importance to learn to laugh at ourselves” — Katherine Mansfield

What I think this quote is saying, is that the importance of failures in our lives, will only be revealed to us, once we stop looking at them as failures. What we learn from our so-called “failures”, are usually the greatest lessons in our lives, and we need to open our eyes so we can see that.

It may even be that life lessons learned through what we perceive as our failures, are greater lessons than what we learn from our successes. Most success comes from letting go of our fear of failure, and being willing to take some risks. People who are successful in their lives, are not people who have never failed. They are people who have learned from their mistakes, and pushed ahead past their fears, to get to their successes.

EVERYTHING CHANGES, NOTHING EVER STAYS THE SAME — by Catherine Morgan

This isn’t “breaking” news. We all know that nothing stays the same. We all know that life is constantly changing. However, I think that we all under-estimate this fact in many ways. What I mean is, when things are going great in our lives, we don’t think about the times that they weren’t so great. And, when things are going badly and we are feeling sad, it is sometimes hard to remember that we were ever happy. In both these cases, it is important for us to not only remember, but to also reflect.
