Be Embraceable

Posted on December 19th, 2016 by & filed under Everything Miz Meliz, Theme of the Week

The theme for the week of December 19th, 2017 is “Embrace” – as in to accept, hold, and support.

This is a great word to focus on for this week in anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Also, it is a time of mourning in my community – so hugs are definitely needed.

I encourage you to think about what the word “Embrace” means to you. Are you hug-able? Are you accepting? Can you be open to be the support, the rock, the anchor, for the important people in your life? Can you commit to loving yourself enough to make a difference in your attitude and outlook? Will you give yourself permission to be the person you are in your dreams? Will you hold yourself accountable for your own happiness?

Take out a notebook and pen and jot down some notes. If nothing comes to mind, try answering the questions above. Please write this down…

“I give myself permission to be the me of my dreams. It is my time to bloom.”

embraceable-me

Thank you to Vicky Ayala and her amazing Oracle Cards and Guide Book: A Sacred Journey. I used the cards to randomly choose words for the theme of the week for the month of December. I also engaged in the terminology and dialogue from the section of her book for “Embrace.”

The Sacred Journey is available to purchase HERE.

Miz Meliz Presents GIFTS FOR THE HOLIDAYS

Check off your list with gift ideas from Miz Meliz!

#1  JEWELRY 

Handmade Bohemian and Classic Style Hand Crafted Jewelry is IN! These are one of a kind and make spectacular gifts. I package them up and ship them to you within three days or I can ship them directly to the doorstep of your recipient, gift wrapped with a special message from you. Custom and personalized jewelry can be ordered by request. Besides my ETSY shop – I do Facebook Live shows where you can see my stuff, boutiques, and in home events by appointment.

#2 CALENDARS

For gardeners, flower lovers, positive happy cheerful people, or someone who wants to be – the 2017 Year in Bloom Calendar will make a terrific gift. There are three options/styles to choose from – so you can cross off three of your friends from your list just like that. (I snapped. Yes, in a Z formation!)

#3 ART PRINTS

Many of my mandalas and photographs are available as prints on RED BUBBLE. There are many sizes and styles to choose from, including stretched canvas and framed wall art.

#4 GIFTS FOR THE HOME

Throw pillows are the best way to spruce things up and make it super easy to redecorate your living room, bedroom, or office. My bold designs look awesome on these pillow cases! They come in three sizes and can be purchased with or without the pillow.

#5 GIFTS FOR THE OFFICE

This would make a great stocking stuffer for the journalist or student! Stationery and office products with bright colorful images help to inspire creativity.

#6 GIFTS FOR TEENS/TWEENS

All my kids get a lot of use out of drawstring bags, for overnights, amusement parks, and school – they always need one. Fill it with a few luxury gifts…video games, cash, tickets to the movies…their favorite treats.

a-drawstring-bag

#7 GIFTS FOR HIM

I’ll admit, I always get stumped on what to get for my guy. A hoodie, a key chain, a mug – – I can make suggestions and I have the goods – but honestly, I think he is happiest with food or a trip to the hardware store! Make it easy, ask him what he wants and get it. Unless he is in to surprises, most guys I know appreciate a practical gift.

#8 SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOUR BFF

I know my bestie will love this scarf…and that one, and the other one! It is going to be hard to choose. I love these as gifts because they are trendy, useful, and pretty. Put it with a handbag or some jewelry (see above) and you will honor your friendship with a meaningful gift.

a-scarf

#9 ROMANTIC GIFTS

Fill a tote bag like this one with some wine and a baguette, maybe some chocolates and an invitation to go on a picnic. Or, put a coloring book and some markers in it with a copy of her favorite book and a coupon to take the kids for the day. What she wants is some love and appreciation. Show it to her with this “love bag” and let the romance begin.

a-tote-bag

#10 A GIFT FOR YOU

Now is the time to get great things at great prices. I want you to consider taking my “WoW-binar” A Year in Bloom series – early bird price is 50% off – only $250 through Dec. 31st. That is five two hour webinars (local peeps can meet in person) for half off. Each individual webinar will be $100. Get all the details HERE. 

Books are also a great gift for yourself, for your friends, and of course for stocking stuffers! Why not give my book, This is the Sound of My Soul – or my new planner for 2017 – A Year in Bloom. You can’t go wrong with a gift from the heart. (Let me know if you would like a signed copy of my book, or the planner, and I will mail one to you directly.)

I cannot guarantee that Red Bubble, USPS, UPS, or FEDEX will deliver packages in time for the holidays, so order as soon as possible. Ordering now will make all the difference when it comes to peace of mind, for both of us!

In “Life in Asymmetry,” author Raychel Kubby Adler educates women on the steps they can take to prevent or overcome breast cancer, especially if they have rare genetic mutations. Kubby Adler uses personal experiences, scientific research and genetic science to show what happens when your genes make you highly susceptible to breast cancer and other diseases.

Ruth Curran, MS

Tuesday, December 6, 2016 6:00 PM Pacific Time

If you ask Ruth what she likes to do when she is not working, traveling, or stretching her brain muscles, she will say, “I like to hike, eat, and laugh.”

I would say she likes to express her desire to make the world a better place and that she is deep and inspiring beyond belief. Whenever I am blessed with the opportunity to connect with and listen to her, Ruth carries me with her to a distant peaceful place with her words, caring eyes, and beautiful smile.

I’ve never met anyone so humble and insightful. Well, perhaps I have, but I have never met anyone quite like Ruth and I don’t know how else to describe her. Come with me on a journey, and let’s see what she will tell us on Tinsel Town Live…

zebras-looking-e1470943798692If you ask me about my trip to Africa don’t be surprised if I tell you about the elephants, the hippos, the giraffes, the crocodiles, the zebras, the great kudus, the lioness I saw in the distance and so many cool birds and the spectacular trees.”

I went on a trip to Tanzania with Global Volunteers to help explore a program that has the potential to curb stunting and change the world.

“Happiness and fulfillment are not that straight forward. I am not sure we can make blanket statements – circumstances alone don’t necessary translate to feeling happy and fulfilled.” ~Ruth Curran on her inspirations from Tanzania

We will talk about her mission in life, her feelings about what she calls, “purposeful travel,” her experiences in volunteering, and of course, her passion for brain development.

Meet Lou Redmond

I was so looking forward to meeting this fascinating and inspiring man! Our values are aligned and I always find it remarkable when someone has an awakening at a young age. Any age younger than me is young, okay! We all have the propensity to learn these lessons if we pay attention. I believe that Lou is an inspiration because he listened. He reacted. He acted. Look at him now!

“I do yoga, read, and travel. This past 18 months I’ve been to 3 countries on travel retreats that focus on volunteering and adventure.I’m currently working on finishing up my book project. It tells the story of my personal transformation and how I quit my 9-5 to pursue my passion. I’m also very passionate about meditation and working on creating ways to help people in their practice and promote it’s benefits.”

Tinsel Town Live Interview with Maggie Lamond Simone https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime

Meet Maggie Lamond Simone

Facebook Live: Tuesday, November 29, 2016 6:00 PM Pacific Time

Mental health awareness, shame, stigma…who wants to talk about that? Well, I do. Maggie does. And we should be talking about it because people are dying in our country. Our kids are dying and they need our help.

“I’d like to talk about the silence and stigma surrounding mental health issues, illustrated on an adult level in my book, “Body Punishment,” and on a younger level by my 15-year-old daughter, who has OCD and severe anxiety and talks to younger kids about it.” Says Maggie Lamond Simone.

We will also talk about what is next for Simone. Maggie is already beginning her next project, which will be a collection of essays written by teens with mental health issues for their peers.

Maggie Lamond Simone is an award-winning columnist and author. With two titles already to her name, her third book, Body Punishment: OCD, Addiction and Finding the Courage to Heal (Central Recovery Press) was released in April 2015. It traces Simone’s journey struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. Her writing has been featured in multiple publications and collections, including Cosmopolitan Magazine, The Zen of Midlife Mothering(2013), Not Your Mother’s Book on Do-It-Yourselfers (2013), P.S. What I Didn’t Say (2009), and Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Resolution (2008).  Simone has been a guest on NPR and is a regular blog columnist for the Huffington Post. An an adjunct professor in the department of communications at SUNY Oswego and Onondaga Community College in Syracuse, she lives in Central New York with her husband and two children.
For as long as she can recall, Maggie Lamond Simone has been plagued by self-loathing and urges to harm herself physically while emotionally sabotaging her life. In Body Punishment:  OCD, Addiction and Finding the Courage to Heal (Central Recovery Press, April 2015), she reveals it all. The obsessive thoughts that drove her to cut, starve, pick, drink, pluck, purge, and otherwise hurt herself. The profound shame, the utter despair and the confusion over her own inner workings that prevented her from establishing stable, long-term goals and healthy relationships.  Through this poignant story of her painful, eye-opening journey she explores the issues of substance abuse, anxiety, and depression that commonly occur with OCD, all in an effort to further the dialogue around mental illness and eliminate the shame and help others find a way forward toward healing.

Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz featuring Anna Anna Hodges Oginskyhttps://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime

November 22, 2016 6:00 PM Pacific Time

Meet Anna Oginsky, Author of My New Friend, Grief

anna_o_044

When I asked Anna what she does for fun when she isn’t working, she said, “I’m a mom of three active kids, so fun for me is driving them from place to place after school. Just kidding!”

Anna loves yoga, reading, writing, hiking, and making art. She loves to travel. She loves being outside. Anna is into daydreaming. She says, “I love a hot cup of coffee with a good book, or better yet a good friend.”

When I asked her to tell me what she is most passionate about, Anna said, “I am passionate about feelings! Specifically, grief. As I promote my book, My New Friend, Grief, I am offering brave, safe spaces for people to discuss grief. Generally speaking, we don’t do that in our culture. We want people to “”get over it””. I want to encourage people to sit with it, with no judgment, for as long as it takes. In that process of sitting with anything, we give ourselves the opportunity to hear from our wisest counsel: ourselves. My work centers around creating space for people to tune into one’s inner wisdom.”

“In that process of sitting with anything, we give ourselves the opportunity to hear from our wisest counsel: ourselves.” ~Anna Oginsky

I look forward to speaking with Anna Oginsky about her book and discussing what it is like to live with grief, grieving, loss, all the losses, and ways to cope – because I have a feeling we will hit it off famously!

Grab a cup of coffee and join us as we talk about our lives, our feelings, and what inspires us to keep going and keep smiling.

Interview with Anna N Schlegel author of Truly Global on Tinsel Town Live @annapallona https://smiletime.com/channel/mizmeliz #onSmiletime
Anna N. Schlegel

www.trulyglobalbusiness.com

Tuesday, November 15, 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Anna Schlegal likes to swim, travel, go to the beach, hang out with her family, and watch Netflix! When she isn’t doing all of that awesome stuff – she is pretty much taking over the World! Well, she did just write the book, Truly Global, so I imagine taking over the world is on her bucket list! Let’s find out when we talk to her on Tinsel Town Live with Miz Meliz.
In Truly Global, Anna explains how companies can be really successful abroad, and see their business grow internationally. As a Senior Director of Engineering, she has just published, Truly Global – which, as she puts it, “explains all the pieces of the puzzle for an enterprise to enter international markets successfully.”
I don’t think I will ever be the corporate CEO I dreamed about being when I was taking Marketing 101 in community college in the 80’s – but, I do know that I can be my own boss and run an international business online. We are a global community and we live in a global economy. Even the beginning entrepreneur with hopes of making it big with a product or service that can be marketed abroad should learn about those pieces of the puzzle that fit together to spell s-u-c-c-e-s-s!
Anna’s book can be used by marketing professionals who want to see how all those pieces should fit together when operating a corporate globalization strategic team. However, her insights are meant to carry over to the classroom as topics for discussion and to explore models that have worked in high level Fortune 100 American enterprises. The small, succinct chapters are easy to read and come across like a guidebook. Join me as I discover more about Anna Schlegel and why she wrote Truly Global. Please submit any questions you might have for Anna in the comments.

anna-schlegel-1Whether it’s a desire to reach new markets, lower costs, or increase profits, more businesses are going global today than ever before. But while technology is allowing international barriers to crumble more quickly, that doesn’t mean globalization is easy. According to Anna Schlegel—dubbed “the first globalization innovator” by SDL/Fortune—most companies don’t understand what it takes for a product to be successful in multiple countries.

“There are a number of new disruptors that are impacting today’s globalization teams,” says Schlegel, author of Truly Global. “How we consume content is key. Consumers move from path to path with low attention spans, and this impacts the success of globalization activities. Enterprises must understand target markets, because their attention spans will continue to shrink.”

Schlegel discusses these topics and more as her book, Truly Global, sparks the conversation about going global:

The key actions a company must focus on to begin their path to global success
How to connect with consumers in different markets: the key to localization
The biggest challenges for every organization looking to expand culturally and globally
Her effective strategy for organizing employees to go global and work in a cohesive virtual team
Various models for enterprise globalization, how they work, and which style yields the best results
A global content strategy that will help your company localize to any number of markers and locations
