     Failure is simply the option to begin again, this time more intelligently
    Week 8: Following through 
    Eight weeks into the year and here I am still starting over with some of my goals. Between injury and too much celebrating, I have been unable to find consistency or follow through with a few of the changes I was seeking in the New Year. 
    As my motivation dwindles, mindless chatter steps in...

    February: Curiosity
    Week 7: Getting Curious...
    There are always opportunities to change who we are. Slowly, with age we are transforming without even trying. But there are also ways for us to participate in our own metamorphosis. By creating new habits or kicking an old habit, each day we wake with a clean slate of choices where we get to decide who we want to be.
    For many years while angry...

    Week 6: Lessons from loss
    For many years loss seemed to dominate my life. The death of Ryan 28 years ago (almost 29) when I was twenty-eight years old, is a loss I will never stop grieving. I grieve the wonder of who he could have been, as well as the memories we will never get to make. His loss leaves...

    February – Curiosity
    Week 5: One day at a time
    Any change in our lives happens one day at a time. My toughest lesson of one day at a time arrived with grief. When I lost my son Ryan, I was young, naïve, and completely crushed by grief. Unable to wrangle how this could happen and finding little information on how...

    Never break a promise to yourself 
    Week 4: Keeping promises
    Any new habit is a change in your lifestyle. While a goal can lead us in a new direction. It is not a destination to reach but instead, the transformation of who you want to become. When creating a new habit, look for a habit loop, trigger or anchor that provides accountability. Don’t leave forbidden foods on the counter, or in...

    You're stronger than you know  
    Week 3: Making a promise to myself
    Why don't we follow through for ourselves? If I promise a friend that I will be there, I show up, yet often with my own goals I let myself down, as if a promise to myself does not hold as much meaning? Over time this pattern of not following through makes us skeptics of our own ability prompting us to give up before we begin.
    As...

     We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room-by-room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.
    Resolve to...

    Being Me: Week 52
     I cannot believe how quickly 52 weeks went by and in that fifty-two weeks, I set a goal to write weekly short stories with monthly themes, and I did it!
    I believe the biggest lesson from goals is that you don't always have to achieve them to improve. In fact, even...

    Being Me:  Week 51 Be kind to unkind people, they need it most
    December theme: Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of hope
    When I finally understood that someone being unkind was more about them than about me, my heart softened a bit and I began to recognize the pain that must be going on inside that person.
    And while it is hard to not take...
