There have been so many days when I roll out of bed and literally out the door. Overslept because I went to bed too late. My time is NOW. Nothing has to be a 5 alarm emergency all the time. I want to enjoy my coffee in the morning. I want to sit... Read more

Monday, July 04, 2016      2 comments

It is amazing the undo stress we can put on ourselves. Much of it can be worse than the situation or thing you are stressing about. I know, in me, that I do this to myself as I grew up quite often criticized. As I get older and wiser, I can lear... Read more

Been a really interesting beginning of the month. Sometimes it just comes to me but other times I have to really think. It's okay to look back and reflect as long as I don't stay there for a whole day. I am really grateful for the ability to cho... Read more

I really like February. I have to admit that! Valentine's Day has always been a favorite along with my birthday and Christmas. I like to make a big deal on Valentine's Day. I believe that it is the hopeless romantic in me. I would love my daught... Read more
The New Year.....The New Me?
Tuesday, January 05, 2016      0 comments

I kind of gave up on making resolutions and started making long term goals. I think everyone of us has great intentions of resolutions when we start, only to fall short within a short time. It's ok. No criticisms no guilt. It takes a while to re... Read more
Being Committed.....
Wednesday, December 02, 2015      3 comments

Did you ever think that you could do everything in your head but, when it really came down to it, you couldn't? There is a reason there is a nutrition blog, exercise blog, etc. It makes you accountable. Which I have to admit....I have not been ... Read more
