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, and dairy. I can handle the first two but dairy? That's a … [Read more...] about Track Your Way to Health
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 to see are getting up there in age - true classics, we call them - … [Read more...] about Don’t Wait to Live Your Life
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 is to possess the quality of being honest and … [Read more...] about Traits of People with True Integrity
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 joy. Today, I came across this video and I have a total girl crush on … [Read more...] about What Inspired You Today?
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. We went on our first cruise a couple of weeks ago and had a great time. I don't … [Read more...] about Too Busy?
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 has felt very out of balance. I finally feel like I've got some room … [Read more...] about Absent
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 and fulfill us, I feel like I'm totally … [Read more...] about Life Can Be Challenging
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 with that feeling. I've done so much in my … [Read more...] about Feeling Trapped?
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 cars I've had and I've had newer and "nicer" but she really grabbed a … [Read more...] about Defining Freedom
I shared this on Facebook a while back and wanted to share it here...kind of as a way of reminding myself that it is enough...reminding myself I have much to be grateful for...and perhaps a message for you... Yes, I'm reading Brene Brown and doing her course on Udemy. I just have one question... When exactly did waking … [Read more...] about Waking Up and Enjoying Life…Is It Enough?
Two political interactions via social media. The first one was around this meme... I took issue with this meme. It's theme, in my opinion, is democrats are violent and do not practice tolerance. Since we do not know that any of those involved in the protest are out there preaching about tolerance, I feel like it's … [Read more...] about Be Open to the Possibilities of Kindness when Discussing Politics
