HomelessThe woman who slouched down in the front seat of the bus distressed me. Her hair was matted, her face dirty, and though it was a cold night outside, she was wearing only a flimsy cotton dress and a blanket through which she had torn holes for her arms. What should I do? I wondered. She was so obviously in need. And at Christmastime too. Wasn't there some shelter I could direct her to, some place where she'd get all the attention she required? No, I finally reasoned, her problems w... read more »

Vision Boards are a visual To-Do list for your future. It works with your subconscious to keep your goals in front of you and remind you of all you deserve. You can be as specific as you'd like - what your wedding dress, cake, bridal party will look like or exactly how you'd like to furnish your each room in your home to a broader spectrum - a beautiful sunset on the beach to represent vacation or peace or strong words such as "Success".Creating a Vision Board is fun and can be done alone or gather some ... read more »
What kind of day, week, month, or life are you having? Are you excited to get out of bed in the morning or are you still struggling after your third cup of coffee? If you're nodding your head, so am I. I've been in both places.When life is great, how can we make it better? When we're not feeling "on top of our game", how do we find the energy to even care?

Although I look more like my mother, I am truly my father’s daughter. He taught, and continues to teach, me to believe in myself and fear not what lies ahead. One of his favorite quotes is “I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today” by William Allen White. Not only is this one of my dad’s favorites but he also lives his life in this manner.
Daddies should be every little girl and boy’s hero.
My dad is still my hero.
I remember my dad removing a splinter from my finger... read more »
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" - Mark TwainHave you ever wondered what it would be like to feel the lightness of being? I imagine it would feel like the in-between stage of sleep and wakefulness or the freedom of simply sailing away to new destinations.Experiencing new things in life is scary but it's also... read more »
