Dang Triggers & the Lies They Tell

About 12 years ago I was diagnosed with severe Chronic Anxiety.  I tried medication for a while but didn’t really like how it made me feel.  I’ve been managing it on and off for all these years and even though I feel like I’ve done a lot of work, sometimes…

The Ever Elusive Dream of a Nomadic Lifestyle

Several years ago, I bought a camper. It was a bare bones, slightly better than tenting it, kind of popup camper. After one season, I upgraded. Then another upgrade and one final one where we landed on hard side but a hybrid so the beds popped out like a popup…

track for your health

Track Your Way to Health

I’ve had enough.  My weight keeps creeping in the wrong direction and my body is full of aches and pains.  I decided it was time to do something about it this summer.  I started with a food sensitivity test which told me I shouldn’t be eating flaxseed, blue dye #5,…


Don’t Wait to Live Your Life

This summer the hubby and I went to the Tom Petty/Joe Walsh concert.  It was really great.  If you are familiar with our lifestyle, we go to a lot of concerts and this summer had several that we considered to be epic events.  Since many of the artists we go…

Integrity and the Innocence of a Child

Traits of People with True Integrity

Years ago someone asked me about integrity.  She was having a hard time wrapping her head around what it actually is.  I had the same challenge and had actually done some research on it prior to that conversation so I shared what I had learned.  While the definition of integrity…

What Inspired You Today?

Every week, I get this question from someone dear to me.  While I rarely have time to respond, the purpose of the post is not lost on me…it always gets me thinking about what’s going on in my life and what is inspiring me most and bringing me the most…

Too Busy?

I’ve had the urge to update here for a while and I’m taking a few minutes to do so tonight.  I miss all of you!! Life is good AND crazy!  We are empty nesters again and, while I miss my daughter, I am enjoying the extra space in our home. …

life is good


I have been absent from this blog for three and a half months now.  I can’t believe that much time has passed.  There have been so many times my soul has yearned to come here and share.  And yet, I haven’t done so.  Until the last couple of weeks, my…

Life Can Be Challenging

I’ve been working a lot.  I feel like summer is half over and I’ve gone bike riding once and kayaking once.  We’ve camped a few times but also cancelled a couple of trips.  As someone who is constantly harping about the importance of always making time for things that nourish…


Feeling Trapped?

Uggg!  I’ve been such a bad blogger lately.  The new business has been crazy busy as we get up and running (always more to do that we think) and the consulting business is going really well too.  It’s easy when life gets overwhelming to feel trapped and I’m really uncomfortable…


Defining Freedom

I got a new car (just like the one pictured here) a couple of days ago.  It wasn’t an easy decision to make.  I’ve had my trusted vehicle for 6 years…longer than any other vehicle I’ve owned.  I loved her.  She has been my favorite car out of all the…
