Mondays with Marnie | No Really, I'm Fine

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Unknown

How are you? NO, really, how are you? I bet you are fine. Right? At some point along the way, being fine was what we counted as being okay, but not great. Any man with a girlfriend or wife can tell you that when a woman tells you that they are fine, they are not and you better get ready for what’s coming. The definition of the word fine is: of superior or best quality; of high or highest grade. When someone tells me that they are fine, I think they are just getting by, settling for less than they want, or just going through the motions. If we are going to continue to answer the question, “how are you?” with this one word answer, make sure that you are really fine. Are you living your best quality life, to the highest grade possible? If so, I think that is pretty fine!

What to do in Texas this Summer: 
After spending time with my kids hiking in Colorado, I wanted to find something closer to home. So, I discovered Perdenales Falls, a Texas Hill Country must visit.

LOCAL SPOTLIGHT

Pomp & Circumstance
This local spotlight deserves a flood light. 
Marie Earthman has created the ultimate go-to shop with all of the modern conveniences of easy, breezy shopping. Back in the day, when I had the Marnie Rocks shops, Marie was my first full time employee. We were just getting started and she was my right hand gal. So, of course, she had the best training ever! LOL. What she did learn is how to make it happen and she has done that, plus some. Stop by her boutique, download the app or shop online. You won’t be disappointed and I bet you will be back for more very soon.
