Visualizing With My Vision Board

I was invited to a vision board party and I was immediately stoked. Admittedly, that was because I read the words "I'm keeping the invite list small." I made the cut! She likes me, she really likes me! πŸ˜‚ Then I realized that I had no idea what a vision board was or a party … Continue reading Visualizing With My Vision Board

My Thrive Experience

In a previous post, I mentioned that I have been using Thrive. So I thought I would use it as an excuse to write another review! I'm also very curious about others' experiences if anyone out there is also "thriving." I don't claim to be super knowledgable about Thrive. I just claim to like the … Continue reading My Thrive Experience

My Kid Looks Young

William looks young for his age. Primarily because of his height.  And everywhere he goes, people make sure to tell him. Every new doctor. Every new teacher. Every new classmate. Man, I wish I was exaggerating. When I was a kid, I was very thin and very insecure about it. And everywhere I went, people … Continue reading My Kid Looks Young

The Person That I Want To Be

I feel like I'm still figuring out who I am. I believe that I am inherently a good person but sometimes (ok, lots of times), I get reminders that I'm still a work in progress. I'm also a person who is obsessed lately with buying positive message shirts like these. So back to the reminders … Continue reading The Person That I Want To Be

My Son And His Room

As a mom, finding the balance between my expectations and what the kids can reasonably be expected to do is a constant struggle. Of course, this is not just a mom thing. It's a Dad thing or any kind of caregiver thing. Really, it's a thing for anyone who has to ever deal with other … Continue reading My Son And His Room

Continuing The Journey Of A Healthier Life

Well, a week has passed and I'm actually still on the workout kick so I guess it's legit. πŸ™‚ In the time since I last wrote about it, I have made it to the gym twice (That was my goal, woohoo!), walked the dog once, and tried yoga. Yoga didn't last long but I did … Continue reading Continuing The Journey Of A Healthier Life

The Kindness Of Strangers

Ever since my mom died, I have been drawn to all things yellow. You see, my mom loved the color yellow. She didn't wear it much but she liked it around her. My childhood bedroom walls, trinkets, flowers, soap containers; all yellow. So now I'm drawn to yellow because it's a way to connect to … Continue reading The Kindness Of Strangers

Giving Up My Lazy Life For An Active One.

I'm famous for my lackluster and inconsistent efforts to get in shape. Or really just to live a healthier lifestyle, in general. Ok, famous may be an exaggeration. I don't think people are paying that close attention. My daughter pays attention, though, so she can lecture me about drinking too much Cherry Coke. But, even … Continue reading Giving Up My Lazy Life For An Active One.

The One Where I Start Again

So, it's a new year. The beauty of that is the opportunity to start over. You really can do that any time but the new year gives you the extra encouragement that you need to really do it. Theoretically. I had a goal near the end of last year to post once at least once … Continue reading The One Where I Start Again

A Halloween Not To Remember

Halloween. A day of dressing up, playing make believe and of course, getting candy. That's basically what my Halloween was like. Except, I dressed up for my mom's funeral, made believe that it wasn't happening, and the candy...well, I don't have an analogy for that, I just had some candy later. It felt weird to … Continue reading A Halloween Not To Remember
