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 […]
A bit of honesty…
Hey you! Can I be honest with you? I’m struggling today. And for the last couple days. It’s so interesting because I have basically been elated for weeks with all the traveling, time with friends and personal development activities. But the last few days I have been feeling like “What was I thinking!?”, “Who do […]
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 […]
Breaking down to build back up
Mom and I are at a Mastermind in Las Vegas right now and it is incredible. I am excited and exhausted. My cup is full and so is my notebook. And as I am writing this post I am so done ‘peopling’. The last 48 hours – I have been pushed to, and pushed past […]
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 […]
Hey! So – I have been hearing a lot about gratitude lately. I’ve been working to re-implement my habit of writing down the things I am grateful for every day. Gratitude lists are one of the first homework assignments that I received from my sponsor when I got sober. And it works! But, life gets […]
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 […]
I Can’t – Because I Am Stupid… WHAT?!
I didn’t say it y’all. (For those of you that have known me for years – that headline was quite shocking, I am sure. I am sorry. It had to be done – because even though I don’t say it – I have actually heard other’s say it, and I have had some admit that […]
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 […]
