An Internal Treasury


In my studies this week the conversations turned to the experience of natural setbacks in life and how we each handle them. Sometimes our setbacks are so difficult we cannot see to focus on our goals, and we’ve only the energy to ‘not give up,’ and can only muster the energy to merely stick to […]

Everything I Know About Leadership I Learned at the Gym


This is a blog from more than a year ago but the principles hold true for me today! Everything I know about leadership, I learned at the gym. Okay, maybe not everything, but I’ve learned an awful lot. I’ve learned that there are quite a few fitness habits that if used as a catalyst in […]

Slow is Aways Better


So you think you know juice? I did too until yesterday. I’ve been juicing forever! I though juice was juice, until yesterday. I have always used a centrifugal high-speed juicer. Yesterday I stumbled upon S L O W! I went into my fav kitchen store for something entirely unrelated and walked out with a slow […]

Create a Ripple


Ever hear of a ‘keystone habit’? Keystone habits are small changes or activities that people introduce into their life or daily routine that unintentionally carry over into other aspects of their life; they have a ripple effect and spill into other parts of their lives.

Sundays


Sundays are my most favorite day of the week. Time to reflect, play, prepare…. Take it slow today, no rushing.

You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles.” True words we can all agree-but how many of us are […]

Find Your Desire, Feel The Burn


Reaching meaningful goals commands deep desire. I love Pinks words……”Just because it burns, doesn’t mean you are gonna die…” I don’t necessarily like the video as it drums up some long ago PTSD stuff for me, but I do love Pink’s words. When ever I have fought for a meaningful goal it has required I […]

Choosing Happy


I’m listening to the steady rain the morning through the slightly raised window, contemplating all I am grateful for. Somewhere between being grateful for hubby, and life in general I lost count. My mind wandered to “How did I get here anyway?” What is it that creates a life of gratitude? Is it a life […]

Buns or No Buns…..


Great relationships, advanced degrees, and a lifetime of memories are not attained overnight, neither are great buns. When you get down to it 99% of us will never have buns like the buns in the picture, then again this post really doesn’t have anything to do with great buns, sort of. Its just that pics […]
