Wisdom Wednesday #34 – Note to My 13 Year- Old Self

It’s Wednesday!  This week I am preparing my speech to give to at-risk youth this weekend through a program called Awaken Arts.  Along with sharing my story of my past, I am interweaving quotes and mantras into my speech for the youth to carry with them throughout the week and throughout their life.  While I…

Mindful Monday #63 – Reflecting on the Past

Good morning.  Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  A lot has happened since I last posted, even though it’s only been three days. The weekend was filled with friends new and old, several needed realizations and more strides towards strengthening my voice. The weekend was nothing short of amazing.  My life is…

Get Real – My Leap of Faith – Reflection

Take a moment to think about where you are at this moment. Really take the time to reflect on every aspect of your life: job, career, love life, health, and social life. Where were you last year at this time? Have you or your life changed or has it stayed the same? Are you the…

2014: The Year Of…

Just when I thought I was done with my 2014 year-end reflection, another reflection popped in my head and it’s bugging me to give it air. You know you are doing something right in life when the lessons that will help guide you to the next level of your evolution appear to you versus you…

Face Your Fears

Whew. What a year?! I can’t believe it happened and I can’t believe it’s over.

Mindful Monday #37 – Clouded Vision

Fall prompts the start of my year-end reflection which runs from September through December.  While I wanted to write my month of writing reflections sooner, writing them now has offered greater reflection and perspective.  While writing the last reflection piece, (which posts Friday,) I realized that this year has had very specific themes.  The theme…

Create the Silver Lining

September marks the start of my annual end of the year reflection, gratitude and goal setting tradition.  This tradition runs from my birthday (which is in two days) through late November/ early December.  Usually the weeks leading into my birthday are filled with reflections of my overall growth from my past birthday to my upcoming…

Mindful Monday #3 – Reflection

A lot happened this week which include both the wonderful and hard.  It was a challenge to find the quote for the week since everything I am learning and realizing, at this moment, has a lot of weight and importance.  The most interesting thing of all these lessons is that they are coming through my…
