711 - Enjoy a creative welcome mat. This one is a terrific way to great your family and friends!
712 - Find a gasoline price app that will indicate the prices of gasoline wherever you are. You can find the best gas station to incorporate into your travels around town.
713 - If you have something difficult coming up, plan something fun for after that event! For example, if you have a major dental appointment, reward yourself with a concert, a play, a walk on a beautiful trail -- whatever strikes your fancy. Be sure to put both events on the calendar. Your difficulties will diminish.
714 - Go to a book signing. They usually occur at libraries and bookstores, and if you find one of your favorite authors, all the better! My friend Kathy and I went to a lecture and book signing featuring Adriana Trigiani, an author we both appreciate. It was a fun, interesting, and exciting evening.
715 - If you are collecting a series of books, take a photograph of the ones you already have so it will be handy the next time you go to a library or bookstore. I volunteer at a used bookstore in a huge library, so I have the best of both worlds! I bought all of those books for less than $2.00.
716 - When you encounter a difficult person, just say -- "You better be getting on your good-bye shoes!" You can even just think it, and you will be able to have a private laugh!
