Let’s Talk About It

Talking about raising the temperature in a room! This has been a crazy year and add to it, it is an election year. I, like many of you, am looking forward to the end of it. I am so ready to feel normal and be normal…whatever that new normal is going to be. We all…

Yes, I talk to myself!

It is true! I do, even more so since the pandemic. One thing that I have learned in all this chatter is that the way that I talk to myself is actually the way I see myself. When I really paid attention to what I was saying to myself, I saw what I was doing…

I am Tired of Saying Sorry!

I find myself saying sorry a lot…..and hearing it a lot, a lot…. Now, there is a time and place for us to be sorry; a lot of times, it needs to be said! We are all human and we are far from perfect so we are going to disappoint people, including ourselves. We mess…

Doing What Is Best For You

I had a moment during my “me” time where I asked myself, “Are you doing what is best for you?” I mean, am I making decisions FOR me and living my life FOR me? What would your answer be if you asked yourself the same question? Answering that question was hard for me because I…

How To Start Owning Your Decisions

I Stopped Chasing Perfection

I think have spent most of my adult life chasing a certain number in my bank account, a certain number on the scale…friends…careers…you know where I am going. I wanted everything that made me look like I had it all together. I know that I am not the only one. SO….what “perfect” thing have you…

I’m Outgrowing People and That’s Ok

As we get older..we tend to outgrow things. We have outgrown our clothes, our tastes and there are certain things that we just aren’t going to do anymore. Have you outgrown Santa and the tooth fairy? Maybe you have outgrown wrestling your younger siblings or dainty little tea parties (can’t say that I have!)…it happens….

Opening Up Will Change Your Life

I used to be more outgoing in my young adult years. I wanted to be around everybody. I wanted to have get-togethers every weekend…now…not so much. As time has gone on and my focus has been more on raising productive members of society, I have turned into somewhat of a hermit. I rarely shared my…
