Life is what YOU make it….

Life is what YOU make it….

Your life is what YOU make it.

This weekend I watched one of my high school friends marry the girl of his dreams ❤

As I looked around the room at the people I spent my younger, crazier days with I couldn’t help but reminisce. Our group was like the back road version of “Rat Pack”. Continue reading “Life is what YOU make it….”

Think for yourself

Think for yourself….

“At least once a day, allow yourself the freedom to think and dream for yourself” – Albert Einstein.

 

I saw this quote this morning and it made me think back to a day where I never thought about ME. I never thought about myself,  my desires, dreams, or interests. My life revolved around what I could do to serve other people, how I could make things easier for them. Continue reading “Think for yourself”

Don't let anyone dim your light

5 years ago I walked away from a life I never thought I’d be in.

This past weekend marks the anniversary of when I finally stood up and said Enough is Enough. Continue reading “Don’t Let Anyone Dim Your Light”

I LET THE FRUSTRATION TAKE OVER YESTERDAY

I haven’t allowed myself to be consumed by such a useless emotion in a long time but electronic issues have always been something that frustrates the hell out of me.  I guess because to a certain extent, it’s out of my control.   Continue reading “I let the frustration take over yesterday…”

Am I missing something???

Am I missing something???

That anxious feeling creeps in, “Am I missing something?”

 

We’ve all had it….That feeling that even though we busted our asses all day, maybe we missed something….

 

Maybe we didn’t respond to that one client…

Maybe we didn’t send that invoice… Continue reading “Am I missing something???”

How you do one thing..

How you do one thing..

How you do one thing, is how you do all things.

Think about it. Do you empty the trash when it’s overflowing? Or just add to the pile and leave it for later? Or hope someone else comes along and empties it?

Do you get up when your alarm goes off? Or how you hit snooze 5x?

Do you drink 8 glasses of water a day? Or just talk about it?

Do you take the time to wash the dirty dishes? Or leave them in the sink for days? Continue reading “How you do one thing..”

Letting it all go saved my life…

Letting It All Go Saved My Life

Letting it all go saved my life.

I remember being overwhelmed, worrying about how I was going to get it all done, how was I going to possibly please everyone in my life?
It was SO important to me that I never let anyone down.

I could be disappointed by them on the regular, but I would not allowed myself to let anyone else down. I promised the world, said YES to everything, and would literally KILL myself trying to please EVERYONE around me. Continue reading “Letting it all go saved my life…”

Quit Hiding Behind “THE LIST”

Quit Hiding Behind “THE LIST”

 

Quit hiding behind your “To-Do List”

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m the queen of lists… BUT too many of us get so caught up in constructing the PERFECT list that that’s all they do…Make Lists.

List making doesn’t get you money or content or or or.. Well, anything except a list, and a little piece of mind. BUT that’s not really what you’re looking for, now is it?

So you get it all down on paper, you’re ready to start taking action and guess what? The day is over or you’re out of time or your appointment is about to start. Damn, no action taken yet…. Continue reading “Quit Hiding Behind “THE LIST””

What’s stopping you?

Orville Wright didn’t have a pilot’s license.

That didn’t stop him from making history.
That didn’t stop him from following his dream.
That didn’t stop him from pushing the status quo.

Fake vs. Authentic

Fake vs. Authentic

Fake vs. Authentic.

 

I’ve realized recently that the word AUTHENTIC means so much more than most people understand.

 

I overheard this  conversation while standing in line at the store… “She’s so fake, her hairs not really even blonde”

 

And I couldn’t help but think, “Does that really make someone fake or inauthentic to who they really are? “

I call BULLSHIT Continue reading “Fake vs. Authentic”
