In Need of a Reframe
I got all my notes together, my script and list to call. I dialed the first number and stared at the phone. Unable to make the call. Then, I made a call and immediately hung up. They called me back – I ignored the call. I couldn’t make myself answer. Terrified. Physically unable to do […]
Parenting Wins and Fails
This weekend mom and I got to celebrate my kids’ 16th birthday! We live in different states – so we drove to see them and celebrate. On the way there, we received some news that my Nana wasn’t doing well. We needed to let the kids know, but didn’t want to do it until we […]
Hi! ❤️ We arrived in California yesterday. Mom and I just attended an incredible personal development event in Denver, CO. Have you ever heard the quote that we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with? I really got to see the implications of that quote this past weekend. We […]
Isn’t it interesting..
I have been noticing something as I grow. I have a tendency to scold myself in my head, or to replay the moment where I could have done things better – seemingly in an attempt to punish or reprimand myself. As if I am not already aware that I could have done better. Kind of […]
I have been learning from a lot of people lately. One of the people I have been learning from is Amanda Frances (xoamandafrances on all the social medias). Mom and I are taking her Money Mentality Makeover course right now. It’s incredible! But one of the things that I am learning how to do is […]
As I was approaching my birthday this year, I was deep in thought on a few things. Part of me wants to be like “OMG, you are almost 30 years old!” But mostly, I am feeling grateful. Because as a friend of mine pointed out; if life was fair – I would be dead. I […]
Have Your Ears Been Itching?
We secured the venue a few months ago – but Monday was the first time I saw it. It became real. Monday was a great day. I came to Polk City on Sunday night and stayed the night at a hotel that is going to give us a discounted rate for people that are coming […]
Hey y’all… I am getting very concerned about driving since the world began to open back up after the Covid quarantines. I don’t know if it was because everyone was home for a year and a half and got so accustomed to having their phone in their hand, or what – but it is […]
Covid Stole Our Etiquette!
Have any of you noticed our etiquette is missing? I believe Covid stole it! Ever since the world began to open back up – from where it was shut down for the pandemic, I have seen more and more signs of this. Let me give you some examples that I have noticed as an Uber/Lyft […]
What Are You Packing? (Traveling With Food Issues & Chronic Pain)
As we drove home from our 10 day trip yesterday, I started thinking about this blog. I was reviewing in my mind what I needed to put where when we unloaded the car. We chose to drive my husband’s 2018 Dodge Challenger, with it’s massive trunk and it was packed full! Some of the trunk […]
