Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…

In case you hadn’t checked, today is National Lucky Penny Day. And sure, maybe you forgot because after all, what can a penny get you nowadays anyway? It barely gets you luck, and it surely won’t quickly add up to you buying your first house. But, it does make me think about money and what… Continue reading Don’t Stop Buying Avocados, but…

Stirred But Never Changed

We are all about the selfie stick. Instagram paints the picture we want people to see. And Facebook tells them how to feel about us. It is all on the surface. But, what’s actually happening underneath it all? I started 2017 reflecting on many different areas of my life like relationships, hobbies, and priorities. It… Continue reading Stirred But Never Changed

Learn Resilience Before the Trial

A couple weeks ago I was sitting inside a Miami Beach restaurant with some friends over a shared dessert. Let’s call it girl talk. One of the girls brought up the book Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant. The next day I saw the book on the first page of a bookseller’s website.… Continue reading Learn Resilience Before the Trial

The App for the Not-So-Morning Person

“The early bird gets the worm,” said no one that likes to sleep in, ever. That has been my daily struggle for as long as I can remember. If we are naming a type, I would quickly fall into the night owl category. Some part of me still wanted to be a morning person. I… Continue reading The App for the Not-So-Morning Person

Habit 2: Effectiveness from Your Core

Books are a lot like people. Sometimes they come into your life uninvited, or you find them willingly. Like people, books can teach you some of the hardest lessons.

Spoiled by the Microwave

When I last took my Pomeranian to the vet, I was told he was a couple pounds overweight. For us a few pounds over are hardly noticeable. But for a three-year-old pom, it could mean joint problems in a few years. So I did what any sensible pet owner would do. I put him on… Continue reading Spoiled by the Microwave

Motivation, where are you?

Every night of the week I pack my workout clothes into a small black tote. It is labeled “Fresh” and it hangs off one corner of my bed, ready to be loaded into the car the next morning. That is about the only motivation I need to get myself to the gym. The same is… Continue reading Motivation, where are you?

Where Did Time Go?

A week ago I published my first blog post in nearly a year. Can you believe we are nearly one-third through 2017? Where did time go? It is insane to think about how quickly time can pass. And also to realize how fast we lose track of why we started. So I have taken the… Continue reading Where Did Time Go?

What My Time Says I Value

Has it happened to you that you're minding your own business, and suddenly a revelation hits you so hard that you never saw it coming? For me, it was this weekend when I started to really think about what I value. Not what I say is important to me, but what my time says is important.… Continue reading What My Time Says I Value
