You can have it all. Just not all at once. -Oprah As much as I’ve been loving this quote lately, it continues to be a hard lesson. Especially when it appears Oprah has it all at once! The comparison game … a dirty trap! I think those rolling hills I describe in the vlog (above) are built on boundaries and... Read More

I’m Feeling Myself

I got so slayed by Beyonce last night. Wow! What a show. Funny, I had gotten into an argument with a gentleman friend earlier yesterday afternoon defending my “bow-down” feelings for The Queen.

Suffering is arguing with reality. A lesson I come back to time and time again. One of my favorite quotes: How to make God laugh: tell her your plans. We make goals and we’re disciplined and we stay the course and the results don’t manifest, the curve balls keep coming, the obstacles seem endless. We curse inspiration. We blame everyone...

The Challenge: Don’t throw in the towel just yet! (Bonus included)

towel
Looking back on my Passion Planner for 20-15, I’ve got to get some serious hustle in my step. We have about 90 days left in the year, and this is where most people throw in the towel. I used to be one of those people, making that January hurdle that much more difficult to climb. Makes sense with all we... Read More
