What’s YOUR New Normal?

This past year has been filled with lots of transition for me. Some days it feels as if I’ve signed up for the advanced “life school” courses. Let me explain… It was just last September that my dad left this world. I had so many fears around losing a parent, and at times found myself […]

Could Your Beliefs Use A Tuneup?

With being a fangirl of Michelle Chalfant, and the work she does through The Adult Chair, I was beside myself knowing I was going to attend The Adult Chair Weekend Intensive. I was practically begging her to release the date so that I could get it on the calendar. The feeling heading down the elevator […]

What John Legend Taught Me

With our youngest son being away on his first co-op in Grand Rapids, we decided we wanted to see the city one more time before he returned home. Grand Rapids is a fun city with a lively downtown so we opted to stay there. The last time we were there it was unbelievably cold. We […]

A Guide To Adding Gratitude To Your Life

What if I told you there’s one thing you can do each day that would take no time at all, but the payoff would be almost immediate? It doesn’t matter what else is going on in your life at the time. If fact, doing this simple act could increase the quality of your life. If […]

Perfectly Imperfect

Do you ever feel like you’re running a race, and you’ll never get to the finish line? One obstacle after another gets in your way and keeps you from your final destination. I’ve never done a Tough Mudder, one of those 10-12 mile endurance obstacle races, (and have no desire to do so!), but sometimes […]

Oh Judgment, We’ve Got To Stop Meeting Like This!

Do you ever feel like you’re moving forward in life, only to find judgment just a few steps behind you? As much as you try to escape it, it always catches up to you. This past week, judgment came at me from not just one direction but two. While working my way through a detox, […]

What Brings You Joy?

When my jade plants began to look anything but happy, I knew it was time to head down to my favorite plant store. Just the thought of driving down to Stump Plants has me feeling all giddy inside. With the growing number of plants in our house, I’ve been given the name of the “Crazy […]

The story I’m making up is…

Recently, I’ve had multiple conversations about how stories and assumptions play out in our lives–those false narratives that we create in our minds that can spin out of control. After seeing the positive response to “How to Become a Story Buster”, I wanted to dig deeper into the subject. You’re not alone if you feel […]

YOUR Validation Is All YOU Need!

Are you continually seeking the approval of others? Just imagine what your life would be like if you were no longer seeking validation outside of yourself. You aren’t looking for others to validate who you are, but instead you become your own greatest cheerleader–skirt and pom poms optional! Our ego wants to know that we’re […]

Well-Being > Productivity

Have you ever thought that your greatest education is not from your structured schooling, but from all the lessons you’ve learned throughout your lifetime? Albert Einstein was so accurate when he said, “The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.” Just the act of living is one of our greatest teachers – […]
