    10 Ways to Optimize Your Bedroom for Better Sleep

    September 6, 2019

    Your bedroom should be your SANCTUARY. Your safe space from the outside world.  A place where you go to sleep and snuggle and do a whole bunch of fun activities 😉 But what if you’re struggling to get some shut eye lately?  With the GO GO GO pace of society today and the abundance of blue…

  • That’s a problem for FUTURE ME.

    August 26, 2019

    Putting something off for future you to deal with isn’t always a great idea. In fact, most times it’s not a good idea at all. But what if you looked at it differently? “That’s a problem for future me” was an expression I heard at the RISE conference with Rachel Hollis in Dallas back in…

    Yes, we NEED connection

    April 16, 2019

    I crave connection.  Genuine connection with humans (& animals)- not just surface level connection.  Deep, honest, real, sometimes dark, soulful connection.  It’s probably why I enjoy a career in sales as much as I do.  Humans need connection with others, a sense of community, to truly thrive & the data shows it is a huge…

    What 4 Leaf Clovers Taught Me About My Chronic Illness

    March 29, 2019

    I’ve had clovers on my mind a lot lately.  I found this one outside today when I was thinking about writing this post and what I’ve learned. It’s beautiful, huh? Just last week I was presented with my very first IN REAL LIFE 4 leaf clover.  OMG! I had no words.  Totally unexpected. I could…

  • A lesson in not (unnecessarily) pushing yourself

    March 1, 2019

    This is me right now, while I’m on the road in Arizona for work. This trip has been action packed, and when I am traveling I try my best to be THERE- at all the parties, socializing like a butterfly with ALL the people, and soaking in all the experience. But sometimes that’s hard to…

    February 20, 2019

    Let’s talk about FEAR. It’s something I have walked thru so many times. I was in the throes of it for so long in my early to mid twenties struggling with my mental health and the traumatic experiences I went thru that I was honestly hanging on by a thread most days. It hasn’t been…

    When the time is right for endings.

    August 12, 2018

    Guard your energy. Guard your time. Evaluate what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. As I get older, I become firmer in my boundaries.

    Serenity > Busy

    July 6, 2018

    Keeping my chin up. Hustling. Making it work. Evaluating my circumstance and making decisions. This week I hit a financial target I had set for myself back in July 2017. It was a target i didn’t think I could actually hit…and yet I did. YAY!!! The trade off? Exhaustion. A busy-ness that I don’t admire. Less…

  • On the news of Anthony Bourdain

    June 9, 2018

    I’ve spent a lot of my life being sad. I’ve had a lot of happy moments too but every few years something “happens” (isn’t that life?) that knocks me down a few pegs either by outside circumstance or inward battle, or most often, both of these forces together. Today I was reminded of the many times my…
