YAY!


Today has been an awesome day. It was even more awesome than yesterday. Yesterday was even more awesome than the day before it. This, leads me to believe tomorrow will be even more awesome than today was. That is what makes being excited for every new moment, because the moment you're in is so great, …

Nothing really matters…


Somehow, I found a man way better than I ever dreamed and fell in love with him.  He fell in love with me, thank goodness or that would have been awkward.  Since a few months before we realized we were head-over heels for each other, our friends, family, and random strangers have commented regularly on …

Being heard: Tapping into the substance that gives truth power.


I don't do New Year's resolutions. Instead, every season, I grapple with a different area where I need change or improvement.  Right now, it's about friendships... More to come later. The last season was about figuring out how to do urgency. I'm a calm, peace-filled, bright and shiny, fun,  logical, God-loving person.  While I fully grasp …

Reflection: What do you block yourself from receiving because of how you feel about the giver?

How to turn a bad day into a good one.


I went to sleep a little past 1am, after a lengthy meeting and an intense daily Insanity workout after. I woke up uncharacteristically fussy... At 3am. I headed to the rest room where I found my love nugget wide awake, acting like the amused, albeit surprised victim of a comical accident.  Strawberry shortcake band-aids.   …

Walking in your naturally gifted power


Everyone's got a gift.  It's like Christmas! Maybe it's dance, leadership, business management, singing, medicine, painting, cooking, nurturing, running, inspiring, or teaching.  And these ain't the horrifyingly awkward gifts we give each other on holidays and birthdays and upon retirement... You know, the ones that may or may not fit; might be insulting, offensive, or …
