Your Everyday Investment is Appreciated!

By Jen Regan | Living Life Together , Serving Others , Uncategorized

Day in and day out you invest in others. In many ways, it has become a part of your everyday life. As a wife or partner, you invest in your significant other. If you have children, investing in your children is what you do. As a co-worker, a neighbor, a friend, a daughter, you make a difference in your world and it is much appreciated!

I want to remind you today that you make a HUGE difference in our world through the love you naturally show every single day. Yes, in many ways it is our “job”, but it is so much more than that.

As a wife or partner, you listen to, take care of, encourage and have fun with a very important person in our world. Your positive attitude and investment helps them to be all that they can be. Your investment makes a difference!

As a mom, you are shaping the future by shaping the beautiful life that you have been trusted with. Your positive attitude and investment makes our world, today and tomorrow, a better place. Your investment makes a difference!

As an employee, you work alongside people from all walks of life, carrying all kinds of life challenges. Sometimes a simple good morning smile, asking how they are by name, and both remembering and asking about important life events, can be a day changer for them. Your investment makes a difference!

As a daughter, your time, help with simple tasks, a check-in phone call, or enjoying fun family events can bring joy into the days of your loved one. Sharing life together and your investment makes a difference!

As a friend, your love, encouragement and goofy text messages can fill a day with joy. Even though we have many people around us throughout our day, life can still feel very lonely. Your investment of time with your friends makes a HUGE difference.

Today, I want to remind you that you do make a difference in your world! Many of the things listed above, and more, are just a natural part of who you are. You don’t even think twice about the investment. It is in these simple, sweet, precious ways that lives are impacted and changed forever.

Your investment is much appreciated!

We Are Not Meant To Go At It Alone

By Jen Regan | Living Life Together

Have you ever been surrounded by people yet felt completely alone? You could be at work surrounded by your team, yet feel like you do not have anything in common with them. You can even be with your family and feel alone. I don’t think that most people in your life would ever want you to feel alone. We have two questions to ask ourselves: Do I stay where I’m at (alone), or do I do something about it?

One night, I was at the gym for a weight lifting class. As people rolled in for class, it was clear that they all knew each other well. I also knew from working out with them that they were all more advanced than I was. We started class and it was going fine. I was the last to finish each of the warm up drills, but that is not all that unusual. My personality is more the slow and steady type anyway. It was time to start lifting and by the time I got over to that area, all of the stations had been taken. Our trainer does a great job in trying to pair us up with someone that lifts close to the same weight as we do so that there are plenty of stations for everyone. Well, that was not the case this particular evening and I suddenly felt very alone. Luckily, there was still enough equipment for me, but I ended up setting up away from everyone else and worked through my reps by myself. I want to tell you that every single person that was at the gym that night were all very nice people. They were there to get their workout done so that they could head home to make dinner, just like I was. The situation I found myself in was not their fault, it just was what it was. It did not change the fact that I still felt very alone.

Sometimes we cannot avoid these situations. They are going to happen. What it made me realize though, is how much better life is when lived together with others.

I do not know what your life looks like right now. I don’t know how many people you have in your life who you truly feel like you can share your life with. It might be one, it might be a dozen, it might be none. I am here to tell you that if you do not have others to share your life with, you are missing something very important. If you have amazing people in your life but you do not have time to spend with them, you are missing an important piece of your life.

  • Other people can bring life to our lives.
  • Other people can bring joy and laughter to our lives.
  • Other people can bring perspective to our lives.
  • Other ladies can allow us to talk on and on and on with as much detail as we would like without their eyes glazing over. : )
  • Other people can be there when we start to feel alone.

Today is the day to embrace the people who bring life to your life. Spend time with them! Invest in them as they invest in you. If you do not have a dear friend in your life, start to invest time and love into others. These friendships require time and investment. Life is so much better when lived together!

Here’s to doing all we can to not go at it alone, and live a better live together!

Let’s Meet Up

By Jen Regan | Living Life Together

Ladies, It is so much fun to live life with you! Even though we are spread across the globe, we have a shared passion. We find strength as we come together to have fun, encourage each other and make our piece of the world a better place. Together!

I see an amazing future for you and me! One where we:

  • Invest in Self Care, replenishing our strength and vitality allowing us to…
  • Invest in our heart’s BEST work, disqualifying many of the “good” works presented to us…
  • Investing in one right decision at a time, one after another…
  • Contributing to those around us to make our piece of the world a better place!

Picture yourself there!

That is a life worth living! That is a life worth fighting for! That is a life that changes the rules!

  • I see a future of ENERGIZED moms, business owners, Girl Scout leaders, care givers, wives and daughters!
  • I see them tapped into what makes their heart sing!
  • I see them so in love with their heart’s work that they do not allow other things to sway them from it!
  • I see women asking themselves “What right decision can I make next to keep my energy tanks filled and fill other’s tanks as well?”
  • I see you, me and women across each country ENERGIZED to do our heart’s work.

Wow, that’s a world I want to live in…but I need help! I don’t know exactly how to make that happen! It scares me a little, overwhelms me a lot!

We don’t have to do it alone, we should not! There is a wealth of knowledge in you and the women around you. We have all worked on self care, for example. We have struggled, we have learned, and have found some success. Lets learn from each other. Lets share stories of our challenges and successes. I want to live out this ENERGIZED life with you and with other ENERGIZED women! Our ENERGY is contagious!

Here are two ways we can do this:

  • Find a women (or two or three) in your life who wants to live ENERGIZED and focused on her Heart’s Work. Spend time together. It might be grabbing coffee, walking over lunch, or a weekly phone call across miles. Have fun, share your ups, downs and how you want to move forward. Life is so much more fun when shared with another ENERGIZED women! Sharing life with dear friends and encouraging each other is priceless! Do you have that person in your life right now? If not, keep moving forward in positive ways and keep an eye out for neighbors, co-workers, fellow church attenders, etc. that you might enjoy spending time with. Invite them to grab coffee and get to know them. You never know, your new found friendship might be just the fun and encouragement both of you need.
  • I know amazing women spread from the west coast to the east coast who have the same shared passion. I wish I could have a week long gathering to allow all of you to meet and hear each other’s insights and stories. Wow! Wouldn’t that be fun? Instead of one concentrated week of fun and encouragement, I have set up a venue for you to get to know each other, share stories, ask questions and ENERGIZE each other all year long! It’s a brand new Facebook Group set up just for you and other Amazing Women!

Below is the link for our brand new group. Let’s meet each other out there. We want to hear about your heart’s work, about the right decisions you are making in your life, about what is working for you, what has not worked, your challenges and your greatest victories! We can’t wait to see you out there!

Here’s to our Shared Passion, living ENERGIZED, investing in our Heart’s Work, making the next right decision, contributing to others and our world, and doing it TOGETHER!
