It’s easy to get caught up looking only at the end goal and not the progress. We need to remember that sometimes the journey is what really matters. Some nights I lay in bed and think of all the things I want out of life, all the dreams and goals I have yet to master, and all the lessons I still must learn. As I continue to think, I start to remind myself how far I’ve come, how much I’ve grown and evolved. It gives me confidence and it gives me courage to not ever give up. I look at…

“You cannot pour from an empty cup, take care of yourself first.” Recently I started a Self-Care Challenge on www.JaneTravis.com. Working through the Self-Care Challenge got me thinking about where I am in life and what I want to achieve, it has helped me refocus my efforts to be more in channel with my goals. This challenge has been helping me become more aware of what I need and what I truly want out of life, what is my purpose in life, what am I set forth to do. I started a blog several years ago and I would go…

“A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you think it should be.”  This is one of the many quotes that hang on my wall. A secret to life is to believe that every thing has a purpose. Good times bring us joy and bring us up, rough times give us lessons that make us stronger. I believe we all are made for a higher purpose of some kind. Our experiences in our lives will help us become what and who we are meant to be if you are open to the lessons…

Sunday – a day for relaxation, refreshment, and reflection. “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content” I find I do most of my reflection on Sundays… It seems the world slows down a little on these days. I usually get to sleep in a little, stay in the dream realm just a little longer which leaves me awakening with a sense of wonder and in thought. No office to rush to on Sunday mornings, nothing to derail my mind. I am in a peaceful moment, it is quiet in the home…gives me the space to think… If you’ve…

I have the power to choose. I have the power to choose to have positive people in my life. I have the power to choose to be happy. I have the power to choose my battles. I have the power to choose to share love, joy, and hope. I have the power to choose to be free. I have the power.

I know I say it all of the time but it’s true, life is a journey, a string of lessons, a never-ending growth process…Here’s my list of self lessons (I love lists!) #listchallenges I cannot let my blood sugar drop too low or I become ultra cranky…I am that Snickers commercial in real life ; ) I need a little structure and routine in my life to stay organized and feel level. I need some alone time at least once every week, every two weeks stretching it, to recharge or I burn out. I’m connected to the weather. I’m always…
