So it’s January 12th and you’ve already blown it.

Learn From It.

Maybe this time, I’ll learn. You know that small voice, really a whisper, that you can hear when you’re quiet enough … and it doesn’t get louder, it just stays with you. There have been so many times in the last few years that I heard that tiny, present voice, whisper, “Listen.”  And I often noticed it, but I didn’t […]

Just do it. Commit.

Commit* Sometimes I should just take my own advice. Commit already. I know what I want, I know how to do it. I’ve given advice and walked the walk, but once you fall off the horse, sometimes it’s not so hard to get back on, it’s hard to stay on.

How consistency changed my life.

Two years ago today, I made a decision to change. I didn’t realize how consistency could change my life. I was consistent at overeating, exercising when I felt like it, eating a lot of sugar, hiding in my clothes, telling myself how awful I looked, shopping to fill the void of love. I battled my weight and consequently, my identity […]

Being exposed means you are transparent – the same in private as you are in public. It means you do what you say. It means you tell the truth when it’s not […]

Comparing creates animosity, resentment, jealousy, and competition. Living with this attitude can be very detrimental to your happiness and overall sense of peace. How can you […]

Temporary Low Points…

We all have low and high points in our life. These lower moments often define what’s possible depending on your willingness and courage to turn them into a positive or let them simmer as a negative. As we continually work through these temporary dips, we build confidence and pave the road for moments of enjoyment and meaningful accomplishments. Low points are defined as that […]

I have a choice…

It’s been cold for a l  o  n  g  time. I saw a friend’s post on Facebook yesterday that reminded me, I have a choice. I can complain about the weather or I can choose to be thankful for a job and a warm house. I can complain about the cold and wind or I can be thankful for all […]

When this time of year drags you down…

I find this time of year energizing. Usually. “The start of a new year always feels like the blank page of a new journal…”  I think I wrote this last year… This year feels different. Something is dragging it down… Maybe it’s the weather. It’s been -30 degrees for too long and it’s an emotional drain to think about going […]
