When I went to bed last night I pondered what would be an ideal way to wake up in the morning.  I wanted to be able to wake up with thoughts of inspirations running thru my head to the point of having to rush to some paper and write them down.  I believe our spirit/intuition is always guiding me, I just need to take the time to listen, then act on whatever I am guided to do.  Hence this post.....
When I got up this morning I went to my studio and sat in my chair.   I was only a short period of time that I was thinking about my Granddaughter, Delaina.  She is almost 2 1/2 yrs. old, in the beginning stages of potty training.  I intently watched her yesterday while she was grasping the idea of going to the potty and not in her diaper.  Her mother, Tara,  had bought some pull ups with fairies on them and had told her some story about how special they were. ( I don't know the details).  It must have been a powerful story because it sparked a new attitude in Delaina.  Throughout the day there were times that she was successful to make it to the bathroom on time and we would cheer.  Then there were those other times that she would have an accident in her pull ups. When those times came Delaina would simply say,  "That's OK, I'll get a new one."   Not once did I witness her feeling discouraged or let down.  She simply accepted what had happened and moved on.

The message I received this morning while sitting in my chair was about "believing and with the right attitude success will come.  Accept and learn from what happens then move on".  

Who would have thought I would have been reminded of such a valuable lesson from a child being potty trained?  AND... then to write about it? 


  1. Ah, such a sweet story. And, you are so right, we just have to believe and have the right attitude and anything is possible for us.

  2. What a great story! And so true. We can only achieve our potential when we believe we can--and keep trying, even when we fail.

    Hope you're doing well!
