Let’s NOT “just take a selfie”

How did we become so grossly obsessed with ourselves that we stopped seeing everyone else? Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I think social media was originally created to help us keep in touch with each other, to give us a voice, to share information, to educate, and to entertain. What it’s […]

Who’s the Boss?!

So I’m sitting in my Epsom salt bath minding my own business and relaxing when the phone rings… Mom: “Hey, I’m going outside to pour gasoline in this yellow jacket hole. I have some spray too if they swarm out. I’m wearing long pants and sleeves with towels wrapped around my legs, a hoodie, gloves, […]

Your So-Called Problems

I wonder if people have complained as much throughout the history of the world as they do these days? It’s unreal to me. Griping, belly-aching, negativity, pessimism, aches and pains, busy, stressed, blah, blah, blah… We all have issues. I know that. And we all need to vent from time to time. I get that. […]

Buzzkill

You usually hear from me when I’ve had a bad day. Sorry about that. I’m not trying to be a buzzkill or anything. It’s just that life’s best lessons – lessons I like to share with you – tend to be wrapped up in what is otherwise known as a “bad day”. Today was a […]

Why I Quit Dating

I’m pretty sure God speaks to me through my friend Jeannie. He speaks to me when she’s not around too, but that girl, holding nothing back, will say things that hit me right between the eyes. She’s more concerned with the condition of my soul than whether or not I like or agree with what […]

Random Acts of Crazy

Believing that I should quit my very good, very safe job (last year). Believing that I can snatch more than my body weight. Believing that I will write and publish a book. Believing that I can pass the Series 7 exam. Believing that I can pass the Series 7 exam the first time I take […]

100 Years to Try Again

“Time decides who you meet in life, your heart decides who you want in your life, and your behavior decides who stays in your life.” – Unknown My mom recently shared this quote with me.  I’ve been reading it repeatedly the last few days and always seem to fixate on that last part…”your behavior decides […]

Big Girl Panties

This past weekend 20 of my fellow RPM CrossFitters and I traveled to Auburn to compete in a fun team competition at CrossFit on the Plains.  It was windy and painfully cold to have spent as much time outside as we did.  But we had a blast!  There’s something about a challenge, about a little […]

Spewing Sunshine

I’m not happy all the time.  I don’t have everything figured out.  I’m not perfect. I just wanted to make that clear. I struggle most days of the week with this feeling that something’s wrong with me, that I’m not good enough, that everyone sees something I don’t see that needs work but they aren’t […]

Focusing on the One

Strangely, deliriously happy.  That’s been me the past week or two – completely and totally unable to stop smiling.  On the surface I can’t tell you where it’s coming from; which is what makes it strange.  Without all the personal details of course, considering some of the events of the past week or two, I […]
