I’m Not Crazy, I’m A Writer!

That’s what I always told myself. I can remember as far back as kindergarten when I would tell my fellow classmates on the playground about the creepy old man who lived next to the school and did sinister things in the old barn behind his house. I think I was inspired by the “Miner 49er” […]

How To Know When To Change Direction

How do you know when you’re headed in the wrong direction? How do you know when it’s time to change course? For months now, I’ve been second guessing myself and what I already know to be true. For a long time, I felt pulled and stretched in a million different directions. My stomach would turn […]

How To Get More Stuff Done

There’s just not enough hours in the day to get everything done that needs to get done! Does that phrase sound familiar? I have said that to myself more times than I can count. I have a million things that I need to do, want to do, should do, but before I know it, it’s […]

How to Stop Snoring Naturally

Y’all … I can’t believe I’m admitting this. I snore! This is something that just started recently, but after several nights of my husband shaking my pillow to make me stop, not to mention me waking myself up with the snore, I have to come clean and admit that I have started snoring. Oh, I […]

21 Days of Prayer

Yesterday, I started 21 Days of Prayer with others who are praying over their businesses for the new year. I think it’s a fantastic way to start off the New Year. The woman who is leading this group is Young Living Royal Crown Diamond, Monique McLean. This woman is the real deal, people. She is […]

I’m Baaaaaack!

If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been writing consistently for a while, I’m here to tell you. I’ve been paralyzed with uncertainty. I felt overwhelmed, anxious and unsure about the direction I needed to go. Then, after I made the decision, I kept putting off getting myself in gear and moving forward with my […]

The New Year Can’t Come Fast Enough For Me

First, let me say that I’m always grateful for every day God grants me on this earth. Truly, I am blessed. In gratitude, I say 2016 was not the worst year I’ve been through. I’ve had much worse. However, when you cap off the lows of the year with the loss of iconic stars like […]

Is Your Child Being Bullied?

Bullying seems to be one of those tragic hot topics in the news lately.  Unfortunately, bullying has touched my family personally. Yesterday, I made the decision to pull my youngest son out of Middle School and homeschool him. Why? Because after several weeks of him begging to be homeschooled, he uttered the words, “I would […]

Why You Should Focus like a Laser To Reach Your Goals

If you’re like me, you have millions of different interests. For instance, I love topics related to natural health, wellness, essential oils, fitness, longevity secrets, writing, suspense, romance, entrepreneurship, real estate, home decor, celebrity gossip, facebook, instagram – the list is endless. Unfortunately, when you are trying to build a business, all of these distractions […]

Here’s To Strong Women!

This morning as I was making my Daily Vitamin for the Soul meme, I found the above quote. It really spoke to me, especially since we are in the middle of one of the worst Presidential election cycles I have ever witnessed. I try and steer clear of political debates. My husband lives for these […]

How to Change The World One Step At A Time

Okay, maybe not change the whole world, but you can change YOUR world! Let’s face it, not everyone is cut out to be a Barack Obama, Tony Robbins or Richard Branson. Not everyone wants to be! We all have different dreams, goals and ambitions for our lives. It would be kind of boring if we […]

Dare To Dream

This morning’s Daily Vitamin for the Soul was just a simple message. Dare to dream. How many of us put limits on our dreams and ambitions? How many of us say, “That’s unrealistic. I’ll never have anything like that,” or “They’re just lucky, not everyone can do what they did.” We need to stop putting […]

Are You Wishing or Working?

Are you wishing for your perfect life? The perfect body? The perfect career? Or … are you working for them? There is a difference. I know you know there is a difference. I have read all about the Law of Attraction and I do think there is some merit to it. However, I also think […]

What I Learned At The Tribe Conference

I’m almost two weeks late with this post, so forgive me for my untimely blogging. I attended Jeff Goins’ Tribe Conference in Franklin, TN. This was especially great for me, because I live in Franklin. In fact, it took me about 5 minutes to get to the venue every day, so I was thrilled! I […]

7 Reasons You Should Take Time Off

Do you take time off? Do you recharge and rest? I just got back from a 4 day rest, recharge and reconnect stay at the beach and it was sorely needed. The beach always recharges the batteries of my soul and refreshes me, which is just one more reason why I need to live at […]

If You Read One Article About Following Your Dream, Read This One!

Seriously! I have thought a lot over the weekend about what it means to follow your heart and go for your dream. Whatever that dream may be, it is never too late to move forward. Several years ago, I read a profile of a woman in the now-defunct More Magazine. She reached her 50th birthday […]

How Daily Habits Form Your Life

What kind of habits are you cultivating? Seriously. Habits are just that, habits. Good habits can be formed. Bad habits can be broken. So again, what kind of habits are you cultivating? Are you cultivating healthy eating habits, or bad eating habits? Are you cultivating getting enough exercise or are you cultivating a couch potato […]

What Are You Reading?

I was on Facebook the other day and someone said they were reading 3 books simultaneously. I know, it sounds impossible and crazy and what on earth is she doing? I have a confession to make. I’m also reading multiple books. All for different reasons. I’ve blogged before that one of the first things I […]

Why 50 Is Just A Number

I’m 53 and well on my way to being 54! You know what? It doesn’t suck! Seriously, I feel exactly the same inside, as I did 10, 20 and even 30 years ago. Oh, I’ve learned lessons along the way. I’m smarter, wiser and quite frankly, heavier than I was all those years ago, but […]

Live Your Life Like An Olympian

If you’re like almost everyone else on Planet Earth, you’re catching the Olympics in Rio this week and cheering for your favorites, who are probably from your home country. Over the years as we watch these elite athletes compete for gold, we get to know them through their life stories. They are our family, our […]
