The Journey Continues

In a recent conversation with a friend, I shared a very personal life lesson. Her response was “I don’t know how open and vulnerable you’re willing to be in your blogs, but this is something worth touching on. So many of us are going through this.” I responded that I would go there, for myself […]

Let’s Get Real

Many of my conversations lately have revolved around the desire to have more meaningful conversations. People are tired of the lack of “realness,” hearing “I’m fine” way too often, and conversations that never go below the surface. Do you also find yourself wanting to connect with a friend and share what’s in our hearts and […]

Midlife Redefined

Recently, I discovered a podcast that spoke to me in so many ways. I’ve been listening to Truth Telling with Elizabeth DiAlto for some time, but when I saw her podcast named Old Chicks Know Sh*t with Jennifer Arthurton, I knew I had to check it out. I’m not an “old chick,” but I am […]

Making It Count

Did you read my latest blog “The Path to Vulnerability”? In that blog, I shared how “feeling all the feels” is so important to bringing us growth and stepping more fully into our lives. Little did I know when I wrote the blog that my Dad would be going into the hospice house for observation […]

The Path to Vulnerability

What comes to mind when you hear the word vulnerability? Do you embrace it or do you feel uncomfortable at just the thought of it? According to Brene Brown, vulnerability is basically uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. Don’t you feel exposed just reading that? “Emotional exposure” are two words that scream rawness. But being vulnerable […]

What Are You Willing To Do?

Recently, I came across a book that grabbed my attention. The book is Unfu*k Yourself: Get Out of Your Head and into Your Life by Gary John Bishop. The subtitle really intrigued me. I’m not sure about you, but I find myself living in my head waaaay too much. Do you find your mind running the show? […]

You’re Stronger Than You Think

What do you see when you look at your life? Do you find yourself observing your life and seeing in yourself all the ways you don’t measure up? Have you created an impossible standard for yourself? Sometimes, we create an insurmountable metric that we will always fail to meet. You may feel that you’re not […]

Go Have FUN

While the hubby was away on a golf trip, and my youngest visited a friend in Cali, I decided to do an experiment. I could have easily thought “how much can I get done while they’re gone?” but not this time. Getting very intentional about what I wanted my “free time” to look like set the […]

Just “DON’T” Do It

How many times do you wake up in the morning feeling overwhelmed by your “to-do” list before your feet even hit the floor? Your mind is already racing through your day when all you want to do is dive back under the covers and let the world know that you’re not “adulting” today.   It […]

How To Be More Productive (Not What You Would Expect)

Did you read “You Are More Than What Gets Done”? In that blog, I shared how it’s easy to fall into the trap of defining our self-worth based on what gets done in a day, but we are so much more than that. Recently, I came across a video from Anthony Ongaro (aka Break The […]
