Birmingham’s Best Bites cookbook is the perfect wedding gift

While out running errands in August, I saw the Birmingham's Best Bites  cookbook on a table set up for a wedding reception. I thought, "Hmmm. That's interesting." Turns out the couple had planned to use it as their guest book. If you get folks to sign a keeper of a book like this, you will have one of the best wedding gifts, ever!. Love this idea. If you haven't gotten your copy of the cookbook, which has 80 recipes from 60 restaurants in and around Birmingham, what's stopping you? It's a pretty tasty guide to the city's food scene.

Fear less and be fearless

Are there things you REALLY want to do in life, but you put them off because you are scared? How much longer are you going to be a prisoner to fear? At some point, you have to break the chains of fear and just jump. Your destiny awaits. Remember this: You can do it if you stop being afraid.

Let your work, not your words, speak for you.

There are people always interested in what you do and ready to criticize you for working long hours or so much. It happens to me - a lot. When they ask me about my work, I keep it moving. I say, "Yes, I work long hours. Yes, I work hard. Yes, I love what I do.'' Then, I get back to work. I know my goals and what I want to accomplish in life. Those naysayers are not on my list, so I don't let their comments take me off course. So, if you are getting feedback that you work too hard, ignore the naysayers. They are not going where you are and that's to the top.

You can have it all. It all starts with whether you believe it.

So many times, folks believe they have to have this or that to feel as though they've "made it.'' But that's where they get it wrong. If you feel like you already are the brightest Crayon in the box or the baddest chick on the block, go with it. It's all about what you think. You are what you believe. As long as you believe it, you can achieve it. Go with what you have in your heart and make it work for you on your journey to be great.

Being bold is the best payoff

Being bold is what gets you noticed. But you know what? It's hard to step out, stand up and get noticed. It's easier to take the road of the less resistance and just sit back in the cut for things to happen. But "sitting back'' is the lazy way out. Nothing happens. Things remain the same. Action is what brings about change. So, if you've been thinking about doing something to bri

Being bold is what gets you noticed. But you know what? It’s hard to take that first step to get to your next, especially if you are shy. It’s much easier to just sit back in the cut for things to happen. But “sitting back” is not an option. Nothing happens. And when nothing happens, your drive remains dormant and will eventually die. Action is what brings about change. So, if you’ve been thinking about doing something, anything, just do it. Be bold and go for it. The worse that can happen is that someone tells you no or you fail. But that’s OK. You just get up and keep going until someone says, “Yes.” Because, one day, someone will. 

Promise yourself that your tomorrow will be better than your today

I wake up every morning with my future in mind. I do what will get me closer to my goal. What does that look like? It may mean reading more, meeting new people, learning a new skill,  taking over a class just to refresh my skills… I think you get the picture. Why all the work? Because I'm building a better me for tomorrow.

Waiting is for winners

How many times have you wanted something so badly, but you didn't have the patience to wait? You jumped the gun and later regretted your decision. Waiting is powerful. When there's a big decision you have to make and you are torn at what to do, just wait. The answer will come - eventually.
