Feelings Vs. Choices

Feelings Vs. Choices

I’m holding myself accountable today. I’ve given the advice before “don’t let your feelings choose your path.” “I feel like going for a walk today.” “I feel like Chinese.” “I feel like getting my master’s in biology.” “I don’t feel like folding laundry.” “I don’t feel...
Why You’re Not Dreaming For The Future

Why You’re Not Dreaming For The Future

I have seen a vast gap in the people I encounter on social media lately. People I love and care for. 1) There are those with lofty ideas and goals and lots of discipline and drive. 2) There are those who are living life just to live. They vary from just working and...
The Eye Of The Storm

The Eye Of The Storm

I set out to have a blog that would encourage people. I’m very new at this and have to be intentional to not question the validity of my sharing. Since doing so, I’ve experienced one personal frustration after another. I’ve tried not to tally the things we’ve faced....
The Other “F” Word

The Other “F” Word

Last week I talked about acceptance and how it’s such an important step in becoming free. I find that some stumble with this word. Some might think “I cannot accept what they did” or they have a negative reaction like “I accept that my life sucks and I’m stuck.” Both...

Roadblocks into Mile Markers

My canvas isn’t flat… It isn’t pulled, tightly wrapped around a wooden frame with perfect 90-degree angles. Perhaps most of us are like this… I don’t know. While I’ve stressed mercilessly over every stroke I am definitely not a color-inside-the-lines or...

Do you feel sidelined?

Do you feel sidelined?

Life is SUPPOSED to be a journey. Experiences. Relationships. Important decisions. Excitement. Life altering lessons. Full of wonder. Taking true ownership of what is given to us. Life is supposed to be breath-taking and beautiful. Unfortunately, there can’t be a deep...
The Unexpected Outcome

The Unexpected Outcome

I’ve learned an incredible lesson on mindset recently and it’s from the silliest of life circumstances. I almost find it comical that I’m going to share from this perspective on mommying, but I hope you’ll stick with me. Because this is a life lesson that will apply...
Do It Scared

Do It Scared

I created a post on Facebook quite a while back that got such a great response, I felt I should share it. A friend even asked me to go back and find it. She said it really spoke to her and she wanted to share the sentiment with her kids every day. To help instill it...
Am I Nothing

Am I Nothing

Am I Nothing? It resonates in my soul even still. All of the moments in life when someone walked away from me or ignored me or shut me down as though I were nothing to them. One of the most painful moments in music was in 2001. I had hired a bass player to play on an...
