Run Your (Spiritual) Race

Earlier this year I ran my second marathon. If you are wondering how far that is, just picture yourself taking the scenic route from Coral Gables to Homestead. It is a little over 26 miles. This wonderful adventure I signed up for took place in Walt Disney World, where every mile is promised to be… Continue reading Run Your (Spiritual) Race

Just the Beginning

How many times have you wrestled with your purpose? Sometimes I wonder if we spend more time questioning our purpose, rather than taking action. Am I alone here? Every now and then I start to doubt where I’m at in life. This year I am turning 30 at the end of December, and boy have… Continue reading Just the Beginning

Was it Worth It?

A moment on the lips is a lifetime on the hips. We’ve heard the phrase before. Especially when our gym partner slaps a donut from our hand. I’m not here to talk about diets, though. What I am more interested in is if we consider this reality in our daily lives.   The Python Was… Continue reading Was it Worth It?

I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

Wherever you find yourself reading this—maybe you are holding a hot dog under the fireworks—I wonder if you worry about your next meal. Not just a food picture worthy of the gram… I am asking if you ever wonder what you would do if you had to beg for food? The Encounter This Sunday I… Continue reading I Was Hungry, And You Fed Me

Do You Really YOLO?

The motto is so real, but is it so worth it? Yes, we only live once. But YOLO can mean one of two things: you only live once, so do something you have never done before (that might be idiotic or embarrassing); or it can mean you only live once, so make mindful choices that… Continue reading Do You Really YOLO?

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

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. They speak truth so deep like you never saw coming. Sometimes we keep those books in the back shelf. And then other times we open them… Continue reading Habit 2: Effectiveness from Your Core

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?
