1. Just Decide

    I was asked this week about what kind of courses I had taken to learn about leadership and coaching. While I do love learning, reading and following great people. There was no specific class I took that made me want to help others. There was no class that taught me what to say to make others believe…Read More

  2. When Good People Go Silent

    I had an interesting conversation with some friends the other day and one of the topics that got me thinking was about the negativity in our world, our media and even in our social media. Several people including, I, proudly proclaimed that we did not watch the news or follow much media coverage as …Read More

  3. Passion vs Calling

    This week I was blessed to have been posed with this question from a longtime friend:  Am I pursuing my passions or is this a calling?  I was caught off guard by the question and had to take a moment to come up with my response. Passions are emotions which can come and go. They can burn intense fo…Read More

  4. Quit Looking for Perfect!

    We are so concerned with getting things right or perfect that we spend far too much time analyzing and gathering data, information and sometimes our courage. It’s easy to dismiss our lack of action because we are still researching the best or perfect way to do something. We find a video or article…Read More

  5. Accountability and Forgiveness

We need to be accounta…Read More

It is unique to each of us and can be different from moment to moment.  Many of us look at happiness as a random act that just happens sometimes and does not at others.  I believe happiness is a choice, an intentional frame of …Read More

  7. Watch What I Do Not What I Say

    As we started this blog and vlog series to document our changes and to share our story, I was honored by the following it created. I have always had a strong aversion to those who give advice, tell people what they should be doing, but either don’t follow it themselves or have never done what they…Read More

  8. Going Through the Motions

    Look at the people in your lives that you spend the most time with.   Are they getting the best you have to offer?  Are you helping them become better?  Are you honest with them? I’m shocked at times with how dishonest we have become in many of our closest relationships. We start going through …Read More

  9. Thankfulness

    Since it’s Thanksgiving week I wanted to share a quick thought on being thankful. It’s easy for us to be thankful when things go well and you get what you desired. But let’s try being thankful for the times things are difficult, when it seems the world is aligned against us and when we begin t…Read More

  10. Live Out Loud

    I love the comments, messages and conversations I have with all of you about sharing wisdom, experiences and perspectives.  I’m honored to know you value the writing, the videos and the conversations, but I must be honest with you all.  I’m not that wise, smart or more knowledgeable than the n…Read More
