Ready To Add More Love Into Your Life?

Just the thought of writing this post has me feeling vulnerable…so exposed.  But I’m willing to go there for the growth that it will bring.  For me, and maybe for you. Over the long weekend, I had been taking advantage of some extra time to catch up on my reading. My most recent book was […]

My Validation Is All I Need

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” –Thich Nhat Hanh What would your life be like if the only validation you needed was from yourself? I know it can definitely be hard to imagine at times but in reality its just about […]

Ready To Start Living With Intention?

I caught myself doing it again, just last weekend. At first I didn’t recognize it.  But it wasn’t long before I was feeling it in my body and had the awareness that I was living without intention.

Books have always been a very important part of life for our family.  I fondly remember having “book […]

How Having More Fun Can Change Your Life

When was the last time that you had so much fun that you lost track of time?  Could it be that you are unable to think of a time like that?  If that’s the case, you are not alone.  In our culture, it is very commonplace to focus more on getting things done and getting […]

Self-care Is Not Just For Other People

Do you ever forget to take care of yourself?  I know that you are busy and finding time for yourself can be hard.  But if you don’t, it won’t be long before you are operating from a place of exhaustion and just going through the motions.  According to a study at North Carolina State University, […]

Making Space By Clearing The Clutter

As I write this blog post, I am sitting on a park bench in a beautiful green space waiting for my son to complete his first in car driving lesson.   With the post being about clearing the clutter, it makes me smile thinking about how that is the last thing on my mind right now.   […]
