Living Well in a Finite World

Our lives will end someday; perhaps tomorrow, perhaps 50 years from now. We know this logically, so why do we live as though we have an infinite amount of time? Why do we procrastinate? Why do we put all our energy into things that don’t bring us joy? Food–Yes, we should try to eat healthier […]

Ushering in a New Decade-An Interview with Myself

Today, I officially leave a milestone year and enter into year 51 and I am truly “in my fifties”. Wow! I remember as a youngster thinking how old certain teachers were or even my parents.  And forget someone who was fifty; they were downright ancient. I would be lucky if I made it to that […]

Residing in a Visionary Culture

It’s quite easy to become complacent both personally and professionally. One hundred different quotes could be listed here, but one of the greatest hurdles that we have all experienced at some point in time is falling into the rut of conducting business as usual and expecting different results. This is one of the truest definitions […]

Life is Cumulative

…no experience is without value. Sometimes, we meet people and the chemistry is so palpable, so strong that we just click and in the process, each person is transformed.  These hearts and souls are meant for each other and it seems nothing will break that bond or that love that is created no matter how […]

Taking the Biggest Leap

I was going to write about taking a big chance (sorry, I can’t say what that is yet), but this sums up all of my feelings about this exact moment in life, so I decided to share this instead. I simply ask for your prayers for me please: for wisdom, patience, thoroughness, and understanding; for […]

If you hang around me long enough, you will hear names like Dr. Brene Brown, Brendon Burchard, Bryant McGill, Dr. Steve Maraboli–all of whom are either therapists or motivational speakers. Are they the know all, end all of knowledge and treatments? No. What they do have is insight, wisdom, common sense, and practicality while at […]

The Necessary Peace in the Recipe of Life

Yesterday, I spoke about how I thrive in chaos.  In order to do this, I must also be at peace with myself and that which surrounds me. I never thought that it would be possible to have harmony while living within two very conflicting life patterns.  I am proof it can be done but it’s […]

Comfort in Chaos

I believe I have always been more comfortable in chaos:  it’s where creativity blooms, it’s raw, it’s authentic, it has flaws and therefore, it’s imperfectly perfect.  It’s a bit scary, and full of madness. This is where the fire of my soul is ignited and stoked. It is in the chaos that I can live […]

Day One 2017–Here’s Your Sign!

I forgot to complete a task, the printer wouldn’t work, I was extremely frustrated and it was not yet 10 a.m. Already, I thought, please don’t let these things be setting the tone for 2017. If this is day one, ugh! what will the rest of the year bring? Silly, right? But isn’t that how […]

The Time is Now; Roaring into 2017!

This is the year of big change, of fresh perspectives and new ways of thinking.  This is the year to emerge as the best versions of ourselves. This year we stop making excuses, we stop playing the victim card, we stop letting others tell us how to live, we stop trying so hard to make […]
