    An Open Letter to a Hurting Woman

    I wish I had a magic wand and super powers. I would take all the hurt and pain away from friends who are hurting and going through difficult times. I would wave the magic wand over the wold and stop the violence; bring us together in love and erase the hate. My superpower would be to sit on the shoulder of each woman out there who was about to make another decision based on a story she’s telling herself – that she’s not good enough and doesn’t deserve better. Today, I want to focus on that last sentence above, about my superpower. I may not have a magic wand or…

    Good Riddance…

    When was the last time you tried something new? Not that long ago, I got sick and tired of letting old stories keep me from going places, doing & trying new things. I have been challenging myself to question when I start letting old stories creep in: I can’t because I’m scared of heights. I can’t do that alone. I’m too fat to do that. Let’s see if I can explain what I mean better about questioning these old stories that have ruled my life for so long. I can’t because I’m scared of heights Sure it’s high, but do you really want to miss that view from the top?…

    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…

    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…
