"The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it."
Welcome to April's "Mysteries of the Mind" monthly newsletter!
"It does notmatter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."
I am one of the guest presenters at Comic Con in Salt Lake City April 17-19.
This is the largest convention to ever be thrown in Utah!
I will also be hosting and interviewing a few celebrities live at the convention including
|Boba Fett from Star Wars||Micky Dolenz from The Monkees|

"March winds bring April showers and April showers bring May Flowers."
Each year around this time my grandma likes to chant this fun childhood rhyme; it has always stuck in my head.
It is the story of cyclical change. Transition from the dead of winter to the fresh gift of renewed life brought in the spring. As a rancher's daughter, it was an important season for my grandma and my family.
What shall we do this spring? This is a perfect time to clear out the old and begin to plant seed for the new.
I always like to use this time to make new friends and business contacts. This is a wonderful time to reach out to new people who will be in a better mood because of the fresh air, warmer days and extra sunshine.
People appreciate those who give more than they take. But our gifts don't always have to be monetary.
- Help someone else with their Spring-cleaning
- Share flowers
- Share baked goods
- Invite new friends to your Passover Seder, Easter dinner or spring gathering
- Gift one of your favorite books to a friend
- Decorate the office.
- Send a hand written card by mail (let me know if you want my address)
- Teach someone a new skill
- Volunteer for a few hours in a hospital, retirement community or VA home
- Give grocery store gift cards to homeless people in your area
- Strive to make each place you visit better then it was before you were there
This is a time to find ways and reasons to come together and celebrate as a family and as a community. Don't wait for someone else to initiate. It is your turn.
If you haven't seen any of my TEDx talks, you might enjoy this one that many of my friends have sent to people who manage, direct and supervise them.

"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."
