Tuesday Truth #13

Tuesday Truth. Number 13. I thought that today's quote was fitting as we steadily progress through the holiday season. Remember the joy and excitement that you once felt? Do you ever stop and act like a kid again? I did just that on Monday. We received 15" of snow! I went and sled down hills [...]

Why I Set Goals Instead of Resolutions

Why I Set Goals Instead of Resolutions

Why I Set Goals Instead of Resolutions. And what in the heck is the difference? As we approach the new year, many people start talking about setting their New Year's Resolutions.

Tuesday Truth #11

Tuesday Truth. Number 11. Personally, I struggle with this one. My mind is always on. Internal Chatter. Monkey Mind. My journey toward becoming its master is incorporating meditation.

Tuesday Truth #10

Tuesday Truth. Number 10. Sometimes we can be like a record on repeat, just regurgitating words over and over. And like a broken record, the words become less meaningful.

The Reason That November 15th Will Always be a Significant Day For Me

  November 15th. In case the title didn't give it away, November 15th is a significant day in my life. If you've been following my blog for any length of time (or a year, to be exact), then you are probably already aware of why this day is significant. Love and Death. If you are new, [...]
