    The happiness in your life depends on the quality of your thoughts
    Today I need to get back to it, back to some sort of schedule, a balance to my day. This attempt to plan each hour with activity and rest, creativity and quiet. A distraction of time that provides a fast to the worry that silently awaits my attention.

     During this time of isolation and quarantine, I read these reminders that feel so much clearer today, as if our eyes are fully open to see.

    Last night while lying in bed I was thinking about the past and dreaming about the future. Most of my thoughts were led by loss. Sometimes it is the nighttime that brings on that melancholy feeling, and the questioning of our purpose? Shifting, I pushed my focus to the joy in my life, clinging to the present, while keeping thoughts of overwhelm at bay.
    My heart breaks for those suffering, heartache...

    "The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal, the tragedy lies in no goals to reach."  ~Benjamin Mays

    Here I grow again...
    I thrive on the pattern that goal setting creates. Establishing accountability in the areas I want to change and guidance towards my potential. Each year I compile a list of intentions, areas I seek improvement where tiny shifts cast new habits.
    After looking through a few sites for goal setting advice I created this list to focus on specific areas of improvement. Is there...

    On January 7, fifteen-years will have magically passed since I quit smoking and transformed my life, by deciding to change one thing.
    I remember grappling with resolutions. Knowing I should quit smoking yet not quite committed. Choosing quit dates, then finding a reason not to follow through. Now the New Year was fast approaching and I extended my quit date to February. 
    February 7, I thought,...
