    Think You Can’t, Think Again

    Ever find yourself muttering “I can’t?” Sadly, I do all too often. If it’s not just “I can’t”, it’s “I can’t because I’m scared”.  When it comes to being scared of doing something? That’s a pretty lame excuse. I mean lots of people choose to just take a leap and do something while they’re scared. That’s exactly what Jon Morrow did when he made the move to Mexico. Now that may not seem like such a big thing – people move to other countries (or states) all the time. But for Jon, who is wheel chair bound and can only move his face? Well, yeah it was a huge deal for…

    Are You Thriving Or Surviving?

    This question is something that over the last few weeks its all I can think about. It bubbled up inside of me during a two day girls trip a few weeks ago when the cabin we stayed in was so far off the beaten path that you can’t get cell service or WiFi/internet service (gasp!). There was lots of time to think about life during our leisurely, relaxing (and oh so beautiful) 4 hour kayak trip down the river, visiting amazing waterfalls, sitting by the campfire and laying in bed each night listening to all the animals in the woods (that was a little creepy sometimes! lol). Anyway, when the question was…

    Never Say Never

    I’m going to share a story with you. As you read it, can you guess what I’m talking about? The words in italics were thoughts running through my head. Okay, here we go… Oh my god, can anyone else hear how loud and fast my heart is beating?  Can a heart beat right out of someone’s chest? It sure feels like mine is going to.  It’s too hot in here, I feel like I’m suffocating.  I think I’m going to pass out.  My hands are so sweaty. My body is so hot. Did someone turn up the heat?  Seriously, it’s too hot in here – I’m going to faint.  Oh…

    When You’re Looking For Love & Get D*ck Pics Instead

    I. just. want. to. date. I just want to get out there and meet guys. I just want to find someone to get to know and see where things go. But what do I get? Another freaking d*ck pic! C’mon guys. This is how I would have handled this before Oh boy, here comes a confession… A pic like that would have gotten me engaged in conversation with the dude. Why? Because it was a man and he was showing me attention! Let’s face it, I’m a BIG girl. I’ve struggled with weight my whole life. And I’ve also (and still sometimes do) struggled with low self-esteem, knowing my worth,…

    This New Blog, That Old Problem & A Visit From Imposter Syndrome

    I have a confession. It’s something that has been weighing heavily on my heart for a few weeks. It’s holding me back. So, it’s time to spill the beans and just put it out there for everyone to “hear”! I’m suffering from what feels like Imposter Syndrome. What is Imposter Syndrome?  Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome or the imposter experience) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”… {Source: Wikipedia} While that’s not exactly the definition of what I’m feeling – it sums it up pretty well.…

    When is enough enough? Part One: Alcohol Addiction

    Am I home?  How did I get here?  Where’s my car, did I drive? SH*T! Who’s the guy in bed next to me?  Those were the questions I was asking myself the morning after my 37th birthday and: another night of drinking another night of blacking out another morning of being hungover Another morning of hating myself He (thankfully not a complete stranger – knew him from back in high school), laid there snoring away oblivious to my tears and annoyance that he was still passed out when all I wanted was him awake and OUT of my space!  The tears continued streaming down my face as I questioned how…
