Today has been a lesson in balance. In winning some, and losing some. But how is today any different than the rest of my life? It's all about balance; about winning some & losing some. Give and take. Ebb and flow. I want to do everything. I know this about myself and I struggle with … Continue reading you win some; you lose some.
Goals. Plans. Dreams. Resolutions. Whatever you want to call them, we’ve all had ‘em. We’ve all started the year out with enthusiasm and hope, only to be left disappointed every December. (that good old dream of fitting in that one pair of jeans that haven’t fit since high school, am I right, ladies?) In the … Continue reading How to Make Goals You’ll Actually Stick To

I totally forgot about Week 2 of Fearless Friday and now I'm a day late with this one. (#PerfectionistsCanBeImperfect) Last week was a hot mess.

My … Continue reading How to Say No
My birthday is the day after Halloween. And I love it. I love fall and everything about it. The candles, the cold, the leaves, the horror. Everything. And I love Halloween. I miss dressing up like a fool and handing out candy to the little kiddos almost as much as I miss going around knocking … Continue reading Happy (Almost) Birthday to Me.
I'm going to start a weekly post entitled Fearless Friday, where I force myself, and my readers, to think about how they were fearless this week - or maybe how they are going to be fearless in the future. Why Fearless? Because life is scary. We could lose our jobs, which means no money for … Continue reading Fearless Friday.

It sounded like an easy question, one I should probably be able to recite the answer to as easy as my own name. But it wasn’t. In fact, it was easier to determine what wasn’t fulfilling … Continue reading On Fulfillment.
