It's OKAY to Start Over.

Yesterday morning was ROUGH. Last week was a busy one, and the hustle and bustle showed up in the attitudes of the kids (and me!). I was tired and cranky. Both kids were bickering and whining… nothing seemed to make them happy. To top it all off, after spending the morning running errands, we got home only to realize that I had locked the keys in the house.  So, the groceries got unloaded, and we all bumped into each other, physically and emotionally. Finally, I passed snacks out all around, and tried to ease the tension I was feeling. (Feelings...

Don't You DARE Give Up.

Don't You DARE Give Up.

I know you’re tired. Emotionally exhausted from giving your all. Physically wiped from the sleepless nights. You wonder if it’s worth it – your big dream, that college degree, the dream job. I mean… you’re CRAZY-passionate about it, but even passion can wane when you’re soul-weary. Friend… I am here to tell you: Don’t give up on your dreams, your passions, on your mission in this life. We have all been given gifts that are ours to share… and this world NEEDS you. Desperately. It needs your ability to crunch numbers. Your ability to raise those sweet babies, so that...

I need to ask you a really deep question: Are you living the life you want to? Are you waking up each morning with a joy and zest for the life you’re living?

Stuck in their job, wishing things could change. Hoping that one day, they’ll be able to do ________. Doing the next thing, because that’s what they’re “supposed” to do. Before you know it,...

What Are You Waiting For?

“I want to be more adventurous.” “Why don’t I ever have time for____?” “I wish my life wasn’t so stressful.”   I’ve wasted a lot of time on things that aren’t important. Hop on the computer, get distracted by something, and then accidentally spend half the day researching something or watching TV.  I’ve said “Yes” to things that I don’t really have time for, and said “Yes” to things that drain my energy and emotions. Until I wake up and find myself wondering where my week went.  Wondering why I can’t seem to make time for things that are important...

You Are Good Enough.

You Are Good Enough.

Have you ever looked at someone else and wondered how they manage to do All. The Things? That girl at the gym with four kids and a perfectly toned body. Or maybe the neighbor who has a stunningly (clean!) home. The more you look, the less qualified you feel to do… ANYTHING. Before you know it, your self-esteem is at rock bottom, and you are judging everything you do against everyone else. Dear friend, if you’re not careful, judging your life against other people’s will CRIPPLE you. I can tell you (from first-hand experience) that you will begin to doubt...
