Hi Friends, What did you implement last week? Did it help you to see yourself older and wiser? I hope it motivated you to implement good goals and have a beautiful vision for your future. Today I want to focus on something we have all done in our lives. Play a card game! Do you have a favorite game you played as a child? I grew up in Germany and all I remember is the name of the game, not the rules. It was called Mau Mau. For me, card games are fun and light hearted! I know there are some who play seriously but I'm a life coach by trade, so I will just list a few benefits and life lessons from recreational card games.
it connects people of all ages
it is lighthearted and fun
it’s easy to include somebody who is new to a group
it keeps the mind sharp (I played with my dad when I visited him in Germany and saw that he was still sharp)
it's a great way to engage with friends
be positive - winning AND losing are part of the game
use your skills - the more you use your skills the better you will fare
be realistic - adjust your expectations
be determined - never give up and always give your best effort
be present - focus on the moment at hand, not on last game or the following
be teachable - someone might know the game better and can teach you
be humble - learn from your mistakes
be proud - celebrate new skills learned and games won
be positive - don't be a complainer if you have been dealt a bad hand; make the best of it
be a team player - be happy for others when they win
have fun - learn to laugh at yourself and learn to laugh with others!!!
Life is like a game of cards; The hand you are dealt is determined; The way you play it is up to you!
Think of last weeks' blog. You can change your future set of cards depending on how you plan your future. You have a lot more say in this game of life than you think. It all starts with one small decision and then the next.

You are loved. Deeply loved. Loved beyond measure.
Until next time, Isabelle
