To Hell With The Hustle

12 December 2016

I once believed anything worth having had to be very hard to get. The battle to get to the top of the mountain was as essential as being at the top, no matter if I really wanted to be climbing that particular mountain or not. I could put my head down and plow through any hateful task, finish it, and do it well. It was in me to reach my goal, even if I’d given very little thought as to whether or not I was gunning for it for the right reasons in the first place

Fitting ME Into The Equation

6 December 2016

Some people tell me I have put too much on my plate and my current health issues are the universe's way of telling me it's time to slow down. As I review my “to-do” list, I wonder if this could be true.

The Power In Your Decisions

4 December 2016

If I can keep each day and each moment about the individual decisions I need to make to move forward, staying present and consciously making those decisions…. does the feeling of chaos and overwhelm go away? What if I reminded myself each and every day that I do have the power to decide, no matter what comes at me that day? Would this combat the feelings of overwhelm?

30 November 2016

He took a minute to process the words that were coming out of my mouth. I had retaliated once again with a cheeky response that gave me the upper hand. He took a deep breath, grabbed my hands and looked at me.“What is your goal?” he said.

Living Where I Never Imagined I'd Live, Loving Something I Never Imagined I'd Love

23 November 2016

I never imagined I would be a farmer. Some might argue that growing up in a small town basically meant that you were a country girl no matter where you lived. Yes, I had friends that actually lived outside of town, but I didn’t really have any understanding of what life was like living on a farm. I didn’t even know that a heifer was a girl cow and a bull was a boy…..duh!!

Saving Your Sanity As A Side-Hustling Mama

14 November 2016

We all know that being a mama is a tough gig. When you add a side-hustle to the mix, it’s clear that things are about to get really crazy. In fact, a lot of people don’t really understand why I side hustle. After all, I’m already a full-time working mama of two wonderful kids, a nine-year-old boy and a two-year-old girl. Then of course there’s the hubby, one furry kid, and a household to run. I’m sure many of you can relate to this picture. We’re not all that different.

Why We All Need A Friend Who's Nothing Like Us

13 November 2016

As a teenager, I really didn’t date much so there were few boy problems, I was academically strong so there were no school problems, and I was compelled to become educated for a career that was both financially stable and rewarding, so there were no “she’s going to waste her life” problems. I had friends and a bit of a social life and I was active in team sports. I truly required little guidance as I found my way in life. My parents could trust me to do the right thing 99.9% of the time. It was all very easy….. I was the easy one. And then I met Julie….

Why "Maybe Someday When Things Calm Down" Isn't' Working For Me

11 November 2016

I'm a procrastinator. Always have been. If you say I have 30 days to get something done…what I hear is that I’ve got a GOOD 28 days before I need to think about it. 29 if I’m honest.
