Sorry for no blog yesterday, I really wasn’t feeling it.  I had a core workout I was going to share with the class, but my heart wasn’t in it. Thursday is usually the day I leave open to talk about life on the blog but it just wasn’t coming to me and putting in a core workout just didn’t seem…right. It was probably just a good day to take a break from blogging. It’s Five Things Friday but I only have one thing to tell you. Today I am here to tell you that I’m reopening the mailbox!  This means I will… View Post

It’s Monday and I like to post motivational stuff on Monday. Sometimes I have these great moments, but most days it’s just a simple message. Today is going to be one of those moments…and I may have talked about this a few zillion times, but I REALLY think it’s important to BE TRUE TO YOURSELF! I’ve struggled. I want to be everything to everyone. I want to feel loved and I want to feel needed. Sometimes I would morph myself to fit this person’s mold and then try to fit into another person’s needs.

I know I’ve been out of the loop for a week but I’m glad to finally be making my return to the world.  It was a rough couple of weeks for me.  Thank you to everyone who sent e-mails asking if I was OK.  Those were greatly appreciated and made me smile.

Every challenge that you conquer and every feat you never thought you would do is something to celebrate and remember. Be proud of what you have accomplished.  Be proud of the… View Post

Yesterday was a pretty bad day.  Things has progressively gotten better throughout the day but it had taken a toll on me mentally.  A series of unfortunate events finally led me to the road.  I needed to burn off some of the stress that had been building all day. I hit the road to clear my mind. I felt really good when I was done. I was back in a better head space and I was ready to relax! But then this happened! The bus aka The Sequoia had a really bad flat. When I got out of the car… View Post

It’s a big world out there and sometimes it’s hard to navigate and stay true to yourself.  I remember my teenage years and all the adults claiming “you’ll find yourself as your grow older.”  Everyone has heard the “just be you and don’t worry about what other people think” speech, but it’s easier said than done, right? As I grow older though, I think it becomes harder to be who you are without being conscious of what other people may think or say. It never gets easier and it never goes away.  It’s something everyone has to work towards.  Just… View Post
