It’s not about me

I recently celebrated my 40th birthday at one of my favorite places- Catalina Island. It was absolutely perfect. It was during this trip, and a lively conversation, that an important point was made about each of us (that means you too). What works for your neighbor, or best friend, or the crazed fitness super star … Continue reading

6 Steps to a Healthy Life

There are plenty of articles and resources on what needs to happen in order to be happy & healthy.  The hard part is figuring out what works for you (not everything works for everyone) and then sticking to the process.  Yes, it is a process to be happy & healthy.  Just like it is a … Continue reading

I am a flippin’ hot mess

One of my LIFELONG goals is to have a positive disposition about life.  I have failed miserably at this more than I have succeeded, but I strive each day for a positive outlook, no matter what the situation is. Especially when I see a young mother of three, who lost both of her hands and … Continue reading

Make room for error

A ‘know it all’ will drive us crazy.  I know, because sometimes I act like I am one and I drive MYSELF crazy.  I constantly have to tell my brain- slow that shit down, you could be wrong here. I think, we all start off as ‘know it all’s’.  Well, at least when we hit … Continue reading

Let’s all fail together, shall we?

Many of us file the term FAILURE into a state of feeling.  I have heard too many people say, “I am a failure”, or “I seem to fail at everything”, or “I am such a failure, I can’t do anything right”, and the sad truth is, they are right.  At that moment, their entire being … Continue reading

In our quest, there are … Continue reading

Who is your a$%hole?

I love sweating.  I love eating healthy.  I love meditating.  I love mentoring others.  And then, there are days, when I need encouragement too.  Just like you. On those days, I need someone to put a foot up my a$% and remind me of my why. Why do I get up early on some days … Continue reading

What is your perspective?

One of my closest friends and I were texting back and forth about stuff (aka life).  We were discussing that her sweet daughter had, had a fever for six days and she hadn’t had much sleep.  She had been up over at the ER of the hospital literally overnight, didn’t get home until 6:30am and had a … Continue reading

Don’t have regrets

I recently made some big changes in life.  The first, was to sell my business to change my focus and to move my family.  I went back to school, have been obtaining and working on specific licenses and am almost finished with my professional focus change. Moving my family was much harder than all of … Continue reading

Giving up to gain in 2015

My number one fan, my aunt Theresa, has been asking me where I have been.  “No videos! No posts!  What is going on?” she asked.  I smiled and said, “I am breathing, making space, and enjoying life”. There are many, MANY articles and posts about how to make the most of this holiday season.  And … Continue reading
