The Today Show is looked to as a pretty reliable forum for entertainment and news. They also have a segment called Jill’s Steals and Deals. Well, in November they promoted these gorgeous dog collars and leashes designed by Nikki and Lulu. Of course I love my kiddos (of the four-legged variety) and placed an order at www.todayshow.nikkiandlulu.com on November 7, 2011. I excitedly called my bestie about getting one for her little boxer and then placed an additional order for her.
On November 14th I received this e-mail:
Dear “Stylish Pup”,
“Thank you for placing your order with NikkiandLulu.com. We are working hard to get your collars shipped out as soon as possible. We will send your Mom/Dad a confirmation E-mail as soon as it ships along with your tracking number. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our Mom Jan Andrieu at (xxx) xxx-xxxx or E-Mail Todayshow@nikkiandlulu.com.
And then…..NOTHING! I sent several e-mails to the business at the e-mail address provided and called the phone number above and one other one I found on a helpful blog. Usually the phone just rang off the hook. On a few occasions I got an answer and was told that they were sorry and would get that out to me. They also asked that I send them an e-mail with the order numbers. I complied with their request three times in December! NOTHING!
Crafti Angi has taken the vision board idea and put a twist on that sucker!Her vision board is actually a Vision Tray. She says, “I’ve been seeing Vision Boards pop up everywhere. Oprah even talked about it on her Life Skills class. Instead of doing the traditional New Year’s Resolutions this year, I though I’d make myself a Vision Tray instead.”
Head over to her blog and check out the great sections she’s included. It will get your creative juices flowing! http://cokiepopaper.blogspot.com/2012/01/my-vision-tray-for-2012.html
Take one last look back on your life…go ahead, because this is the last time you should look back on these yesterdays.
Tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life. That day & the ones that follow are the only days to focus on.
Past mistakes, missed opportunities, & things you should have said or done are gone.
No big loss, right?
In front of you are only new opportunities, new friends, new relationships, and new adventures. Time to take chances and follow your dreams.
No matter your age or current position in life, there are so many things available to you if you remember that all is anew, that all you desire – you deserve.
Find your way in this life, the only life you’ll ever have. Enjoy your family and friends. Treasure every breath that is given to you. Accept the blessings that will come your way. Take all the chances given to you to bless others.
In this new year remember that each day is the one that counts. Remember that you are not just preparing for some future life – this is your life.
Live it and those dreams you are holding for the future TODAY!
