The Lucky One #BehindTheBlogger

Behind The Blogger
~ The Lucky One ~

The Lucky One.. Most people read those words and instantly think of someone they know and others instantly think, yes, I am..

I tend to think luck is a matter of perception and sometimes circumstance, while I also believe some people are just born lucky.

When I say born lucky I truly mean it, some people just seem to do everything wrong and have it all turn out right, while others can do everything right and have it just turn out horribly. The situations they were in, the people involved, the materials or lack of materials etc… Every little thing we do, say and sometimes think can change our circumstance. Is that luck or just life?

What outcome you expect from a situation can determine if you felt lucky or not, such as winning a pie contest. You were lucky enough to win, but you didn’t win in the category you were hoping for. So are you lucky or not lucky.. Perception..

I think people who have a more positive outlook on like tend to feel more lucky than those who are struggling and yet some of the people who struggle the most feel the luckiest because they know it could be worse..

When I ask myself do I feel like I am the lucky one, I automatically want to say no, not really… But as I sit and think about all I have in my life, in my mind, in my heart I realize I am one of the luckiest people I know, because Luck doesn’t make or break me. Luck is something I wish for everyone. Luck in life, love and happiness.

Think Like Your DogFrom the Author
This book is dedicated to my parents, who have supported all of my projects dating back to my earliest memories; to my husband, Jason Young, who is a terrific business partner and wonderful life partner; and to my sons, Alexander and Nicholas. May they find the same joy in dogs that their mother has found. It also is dedicated to all of my dog friends, past and present. They have been wonderful teachers.

From the Inside Flap
Almost every dog owner wants a stable, dependable canine companion to bond with in a rewarding relationship. That’s a perfectly reasonable desire and a perfectly realistic one. And it’s the reason for this dog training book.

Rewarding relationships usually don’t happen by accident. They happen because an owner cares enough to choose a companion wisely and then to expend the time and the patience that are necessary in training dogs to nurture his dog’s inborn ability to provide friendship and companionship. It works, because the dog-human relationship is rare in nature; two distinct species that live in…  Read more

From the Back Cover

They have a fresh perspective on dog training and people and life that is missing from everyone else. What s interesting is they re talking about how to deal with dogs, but this is not just about dogs it s dating and business and Thanksgiving dinner with the extended family. It s life in the guise of dog training, and it s HUGE. —Colleen Mondor, dog-training client, Seattle, WA

“A must-read for any dog owner! Dianna Young s pet training style is right on the money. Loving your dog is a given, but learning to be its leader will make the bond much stronger and more fulfilling. —Elizabeth Kerstetter, veterinary hospital manager, Selinsgrove, PA

Photo Frame Storage Cabinet

Children’s Artwork Frame
~ Wall Mounted Display Cabinet ~

This artwork photo frame storage cabinet is the ideal way to display and store child’s art, photos, awards or even certificates without cluttering up your home or refrigerator. The frame can be hung in either portrait or landscape orientation to meet all your needs.

I am in love with this idea! My kids are a little older now so I don’t get many drawings and artwork from them anymore, but I have so many nieces and nephews that are always making me things.

I like that I can display the latest creation and when a new one comes, I can simply place the other inside the storage cabinet and replace the front image with their new masterpiece.

I love when the kiddos come over and they see that I not only told them I love their picture, but seeing it proudly displayed in a stylish frame for all my guest to see, is proof, that I love and enjoy their art!

Package includes: Photo frame storage cabinet, instructions, mounting hardware.
>> Click Here to Purchase on Amazon <<

The photo frame storage cabinet arrived fully assembled with mounting hardware and simple instructions.

When you have the photo frame storage cabinet secured in place, you can simply pop the door open, move the current artwork to the storage section and slide the new artwork into place.

The frame is solid wood with a 1in white mat.  The front panel is a clear acrylic panel, that arrived with a protective film that you can easily peel back for a crystal clear viewing window. The door is held shut with a pretty strong magnetic clasp.

Overall this photo frame storage cabinet has a simple design with a lot of style to display your kids artwork or other special creations & accomplishments. Easy to mount and easy to use. Great storage solution for outdated artwork you want to keep but don’t know where to put it!
