What comes to mind when you look at this picture? I’ve stared at it for more minutes than I’m willing to admit – I’m captivated by it. In the midst of a lifeless and barren landscape, this little girl found a way to have fun.   Unaffected by her surroundings, she exudes this life and spirit […]

Why Facebook is BS

I dare you to make the ugliest picture ever taken of you your Facebook profile pic! Would you do it? What about the family picture where the kids are crying and pitching a fit, dad’s mad, and mom has a little vomit on her shirt? Yeah I’m guessing NO on that one too. You see, […]

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 […]

Like a Magnet

I woke up the other morning ready to punch or throw something.  Yes, it’s a lovely way to start the day – with rage.  I’ve been holding in too many things instead of speaking my peace and letting them out, so I was bursting at the seams.  For a fairly intolerant person, I’ve tolerated more […]

The Great Differentiator

The Great Differentiator

They say that time is the great equalizer – we all have the same amount of it.  But how we use that time, I believe, is the great differentiator.  It’s what separates the ordinary from the extraordinary; the mediocre from the exceptional; the failures from the successes. If there’s anything I’ve learned about life, it’s […]

Will You?

I guess it’s that time of year again when we start wrapping up and evaluating our year and thinking about what’s to come in the next.  We make plans and set goals, have resolutions and vow to do things differently….this time. I’ve been asked by those who mentor and coach me in my business to […]

Dreaming of Love

On Thanksgiving I had the opportunity to help serve a meal to those in need at our church’s Dream Center in the Woodlawn community of Birmingham.  Per the website, I was expecting to arrive to a sign-in table for volunteers and leaders of sort directing us on where to go, what to do, etc.  But […]

Grace and Cake

Grace ~ a temporary exemption or immunity; a reprieve. I gave myself a lot of grace this week.  And by grace I mean carrot cake, chocolate truffles, cornbread, rice, pimento cheese, sweet potato pecan pie, and I’m sure there were some cookies in there somewhere.  The grace I extended to myself this week also came […]
