So I first saw this phrase when I was reading about a fundraiser last week for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It’s a great story and sets perspective on what we complain about in our lives when looking at the lives of those fighting cancer. Skip forward a week after reading it to a time […]Continue Reading


I’m still here. Still working on healthy decisions. Had a couple days off from the gym when I pulled a muscle in my neck/upper back and it caused vertigo. Let me say I have such compassion now for people who live with that all the time or for those who experience it frequently. Crazy stuff! […]Continue Reading


So…yesterday I worked out in the afternoon.  The plan today was to workout tonight. But – a little health scare got in the way.  I was pretty stressed/overwhelmed.  Thankfully I had/have awesome family, friends and boyfriend.  They made the past couple days easier.  Good news to report – after 3 more tests today – the […]Continue Reading

Yep.  A very long, albeit productive day. Many conversations and connections. Something ending.  Something new beginning. Tomorrow a new day with much to do. This is all the energy I have tonight. Goodnight. Sleep well.  Hold tight.  Continue Reading


Wow…noticing lots this week!  Sitting down to write every night is making more aware of some of the craziness I allow – yes, allow…to happen in my days.  There are things I should be doing to better manage my time.  With some simple changes I will be more effective in my work and my personal […]Continue Reading


Do you know yours?  Or are you like me and say “yes” to too many things?   Now, don’t get me wrong.  I am far better at this now than I used to be…but there is still room for improvement.  Tonight I realized that I was unable to do one thing I had committed to […]Continue Reading
