I'll start by saying we live in "tornado alley." This morning my brother, who lives in Indy, got a call at work from his wife who was screaming on the other end of the phone. He has a huge tree in his back yard that was split in half, one half ... Read more
I was talking to my mom yesterday and the conversation went in an unexpected direction. I just came out with it and said, "Mom, this isn't gonna make any sense, but I'm going to say it anyway. I think you and I should head to Tennessee and see i... Read more
There's so darn much inspiring this post, I'm gonna try real hard to bake it into something bite size.
This weekend started me cooking up this post with some online ingredients. First, Marie Forleo. youtu.be/eFqsUow-HvM sha... Read more
Tony Robbins' voice is unmistakable. There are times when I have a tiny bit of trouble listening to it, and other times when I can dismiss the growl. Needless to say, he's made an impact on my life as well as millions of others, I'm sure.

One of my favorite online superstars is Marie Forleo. And her video featuring Bryce Dallas Howard of the great new movie Pete's Dragon really hit home for me today. Here's a link if you wanna check it out. youtu.be/E-DF4LUm0Rc (... Read more
I write a lot about calendars, habits, goal setting etc. Today, though, I'm in a remembering sort of mood. I remember getting back on spark and thinking to myself, "why bother? Yet another thing I'm going to try only to fail." Nice. But, that's ... Read more
Today I spent some time with my niece. She played softball in the Little League World Series twice. She played basketball with Skylar Diggins. So, where is she now? Hurting, but maybe, just maybe making he most of some missed opportunities. In a... Read more
You know those weeks when you just put off going to the grocery store? The kids are eating hotdog buns for snacks, and dinner is like, "look I made noodly stuff with meat from the other day." Followed by, "What?" Then I reply, "Just eat it." It'... Read more
Isn't time a funny thing? I don't think most people really get it's value. So, just for fun, here's a little exercise I learned from Terri Savelle Foy. Try it to check out how much you've got sitting in your time account. Maybe it's an abundance... Read more
I think too much. Man, I wish I was like my hubby. He is like Mr. Resilient. He can run into obstacles and just jump 'em like they're an ant hill. I'm that girl who can make a molehill into Mt Vesuvius in a matter of minutes.

I remember the first day I sat at my desk as Executive Director of a non-profit and felt completely overwhelmed, incompetent, and had zero clue what I was doing. It's a good thing I did know something, ask questions. That's exactly what I did, a... Read more
My time with my rock and my family has been the gift that keeps on giving. We returned from vacation on Wednesday. That day hubbo and I got in a huge fight. (I know, I know. I'm sick of it too, you would have thought we would have learned our le... Read more
So, I wrote last week about a rock. Not just any rock, but a rock that carried some weight. While reading, "Write is a Verb," I decided to externalize a lot of the junk I had been saying to myself for as long as I can remember. Negative thought ... Read more
I spend Tuesdays with my mom. We usually find an antique store to browse or cute little Main Street to explore. After we've ooh'd and aah'd sufficiently, we cap our time together with a bite to eat. Between laughing our way through TJ Maxx and ... Read more
This is kind of the opposite post of my previous, "Knowing What Gets You Going." This post will delve into the stuff that grinds me to a halt. Again, I am reading the book "Write is A Verb" by Bill O'Hanlon and this post is prompted from that bo... Read more
