Celebrate all that You are

Posted on January 16, 2020 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Celebrate all that You Are!! I'm a cat lover, auntie, artist, sister. I am kind, fun and friendly. There's no point in focusing in on what you are NOT... celebrate who you ARE!


I'm not a rock climber. Too bad for rocks!

I'm not a lawyer. But guess what...?... it wouldn't be for me.


Be kind to yourself. AND even more.. CELEBRATE. Let go of worry and self-doubt. Find the things that make you WONDERFUL. And celebrate those. Tell me what something that ...

Self Care Sunday! What have you done for you lately?

Small things count, but make sure it's dedicated time for you. ��


If you don't feel like you have time today, schedule something for the upcoming week. Write it on your fridge, mirror or calendar. What 5-10 minutes can be just for you (longer if you can!). If you need to start small, please do! Train yourself to make yourself a priority! :)


We get it.. it can be hard with jobs, frie...

Take Care of your Self. And take a Selfie for goodness sake!

Posted on January 16, 2020 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

When people say post a current selfie of yourself I notice I DON’T TAKE SELFIES!


Is it because I don’t believe I’m beautiful or worthy of a selfie?


Is it because I often feel disheveled and rarely take the time for myself to LOOK NICE? (Possibly ��)


Or is because I just don’t care about selfies! ��


For me, it’s the latter of these that is true!

One aspect in my life I am improving is my health, fitness and nutrition. (My financial self care side is a work in progress to!) It’s not easy!

Pre-cut Veggies Each week

I try to start each week with fresh cut up veggies for easy access.

If your like me, the UNCUT veggies rarely get touched.


Weekly food prep is an awesome way for me to help my family choose healthy snacks throughout the week, myself included!


If I don’t have ready cut up veggies ready to eat, the cookie jar is my go to or toast! Because it’s so easy and yummy.


My mouth and brain love to eat the cookies and chocolates ...

Mad, Sad or Glad

Grumpy. Eyes rolled. No smile.

THIS was my face when Ben suggested we take our daily walk today. I was not in the mood. Just a bit tired, grumpy and to be honest, feeling overwhelmed today.


Hubs: Wanna walk now?

Me: No. (insert face)...Definitely no.

Hubs: *says nothing*

Hubs: *says nothing*

Me: *fine* but let's go RIGHT now... (insert dramatic sigh).


So we went. He tried to chat with me but I was n...

Personal Mantra... beat the fear down!

Posted on January 2, 2020 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It is “easy” to not believe in yourself. To allow doubt and fear to take over. To allow anxiety to steer your direction.


It all starts with one small step. One small belief. One small moment.


Stopping the disbelief, the fear, the doubt and anxiety is too much if you think it all has to end today!


It’s a journey.


How can we overcome any of these “negative” moments or thoughts?

It's Jan 2nd...

Where do you stand on New Years resolutions? If they work for you, great.�� It's a wonderful time to reset and renew.


For me, I have never really gotten on board with resolutions. I prefer to be continuous in my health and life journey.


In October, my husband I set the intention to walk daily together. With this, we are carving out time together, enjoying fresh air and creating a lifelong habit together. Are we perfec...

Missing Mom and wishing I was doing it better

Today this message is for my siblings and I. Lisa, Angela and Ryan....but I hope it resonates with others too.


Today is the one year anniversary of our moms passing. She was a teacher who touched so many and one of her great messages was that 'THIS is a Mistake-Making Place. 'Everyone is welcome here.' It was her philosophy in school AND life. Hence, my photo attached.


In the week leading up to this anniversary I cannot believe a year has gone by. It feel...
