I am so far from perfect . . . And sometimes I slip up and do something that proves this fact. Where is that re-wind and re-do button when you need it? Sadly, there are no mulligans in life. And when I mess up like this, I am horrible to myself . . . I … Continue reading Be a Goldfish
I took a short, but very sweet trip to Colorado—God’s country. The fresh air, babbling brooks, mountain ranges, magnificent red rocks and boulders transported me to a place of simplicity. The grandeur of it all reminded me of our insignificance in the grand scheme of life and it left me feeling humbled and refreshed. It … Continue reading How to Get Back to Your Ted Lasso-Self
To Thine Own Self Be True. . . I woke up to those words, plastered on my self-conscious. I get a lot of my story ideas, plot points, and “morning musings” when I first wake up. Sometimes, they come because I’ve gone to bed mulling over a story idea and I’m hoping for some Theta-induced … Continue reading To Thine Own Self Be True

I mean, it is okay for other people to obtain these goals. Right? How many times have we told ourselves, "those types of goals are … Continue reading Have a ‘Why Not Me?!’ Attitude
For the last two years, I’ve decided to have a one-word goal. It would be my mantra throughout the year, pushing me forward, and helping me stay committed to what I was trying to achieve.
