Making decisions…

Greetings from the Lake! The sun is just rising here… there’s so much beauty and peace at this time of day… 

Even so, I’m only compelled to get up with the birds when we’re at the lake. 😉

But I do treasure these early mornings at the water, with my journal, sometimes a book, oftentimes just my thoughts – and my coffee. 😉

It usually takes me a couple of weeks to fully decompress and relax into the summer’s ease… but I’m already starting to feel things loosening.

People often tell us how lucky we are to spend the whole summer at the lake – but I always tell them, it’s not luck. It was a decision to do so a long time ago and then taking action to make it happen.

The first summer we were here for 2 weeks, and last summer we were here for 13. We just kept adding weeks every year until we were staying from Father’s Day to Labor Day.

But it all started with a decision. I knew what I wanted and I decided to make it happen. And this is our 12th summer doing so.

What decision could you make in your life or your business that would bring you more peace, joy, ease, freedom, happiness, laughter, wisdom, abundance?

I’d love to know – please share with me in the comments.

Until next time…



  1. Good morning! This is our last week of school and early mornings. Several months ago when I was planning my summer work schedule I realized I also wanted more time off. I can’t completely take the summer off. I will work part-time for a few weeks at a summer (more fun than work!), and I wanted more family time. I scheduled 1 work week in July, and 2 half-weeks in August. Trying something different and scaled back this summer, and I’m excited to see how this works for my business and my family.

    • This makes me so happy, Gail!! 🙂

  2. Hi Alicia,

    Glad you’re enjoying the lake with your family. The thing I want to see most happen in me to have a successful ministry is to be consistent in writing meaningful, encouraging, informative articles to my email list. I choose to write each week starting today.

    The next thing is to start up my private 1:1 coaching business to help spiritual, entrepreneurial women clarify strengths, confidently master mindset and emotions and create a destiny roadmap to courageously achieve their top goal by end of year.

    Thank you Alicia!


    • Love these decisions, Karen! When we make them, things start to shift in our favor! 🙂
