    Who’s that girl?

    As I sit here typing this I can’t stop grinning. Seriously, I can’t wipe the smile off my face. I’ve been living on the West Coast for two months now and I still feel like I need to pinch myself every day, it still feels that surreal! I mean never in a million years did I ever see myself loving (and moving to) another place more than Florida (you can read more about that here). But here I am….falling more and more in love with the West Coast all the time! But that’s not what this post is about. Well it kind of is because it falls into the ‘who’s that girl’…

    Life Doesn’t Always Go According To Plan…

    life doesn't always go according to plan.

    Today I’m taking you on a little time travel. Grab a cuppa something, cause this one’s a bit long… June 2017 My son graduates high school and the time has come for me to move on to the next adventure and phase of life…head South to the Sunshine state. You see, I had been talking about moving to Florida for several years. Everyone knew this was my dream because I had been talking about it for so damn long….four years at this point. People were getting tired of all the talk and no action I think 😉 But something always held me back. But low and behold, my darling 18…

    Are You Living Life To The Fullest?

    Do you ever wonder if you’re thriving or surviving? This has always been an intriguing question to me because I never really understood what it meant. I finally went and looked up the definition of thrive (duh, why didn’t I think of that sooner???) and it makes perfect sense now: 1. to prosper; be fortunate or successful. 2. to grow or develop vigorously; flourish (Source: Dictionary.com) I don’t really care for definition #1, but #2 – yep, that hits the nail on the head for me when I think of thriving in terms of life, business, relationships, etc.! Another way to think about thriving that makes sense to me is living…

    Life Is Short, Isn’t It Time To Say YES?

    I just recently found Henrik Edberg and got lost perusing several of his blog posts. Lots of awesome, inspirational posts but I especially liked How to Live a Happy Life: 10 Things to Say Yes to Starting Today.  The blurb below really caught my attention: When you say no you can safely stay within your comfort zone. You don’t have to fear failing or being rejected. The scary unknown and sometimes difficult change can be avoided. But if you say yes your life can expand and deepen. The yes allows you to open up your life to more happiness. It made me stop and think about all the times I chose to…

    Loving Yourself Even When You Don’t Feel Like It

    Self-love is one of the first things I started learning when I walked through the doors of my very first AA meeting (it was March 30, 2012!). I grew up being told I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, thin enough, yada yada yada. Hating myself, having no confidence, and low self-esteem resulted in a pretty messed up life – as if the mention of AA didn’t clue you in to that 😉 Anyways, one of the first things I was told at that meeting was “we will love you until you can love yourself.” It’s been a long journey and one I’ll never regret or wish to shut the door…

    Pursuing Happiness in Three Steps

    Ever feel like, even though things in your life are good, you’re still not happy? I just had this conversation with a friend recently and was saying how I feel guilty that I feel so unhappy some days. I have a roof over my head, food in my belly, amazing friends, wonderful family, my sobriety (I will be sober for 5 years on March 3rd, 2019!), a reliable car, fun clients, the ability to work anywhere because of my online businesses. I literally have nothing to complain about or be unhappy about. But yet I often find myself thinking ‘I should be doing this and then I’d be happier’, ‘I’d be happier…
