1. Being Seen

    This week I was fortunate enough to attend a keynote speech by Leon Logthetis (The Kindness Diaries) and he talked about our basic human desire to be seen.  To truly be seen by those around us as a whole person, instead of in the roles we play or are assigned in life, father/mother, husband/wife, b…Read More

  2. The Challenge to Find Ourselves

    “The definition of hell is when the person you are meets the person you could have been.” - Unknown I love that quote and have referenced it many times during my recent struggles. When I think about it, I find pride and a weird sort of happiness in my situation.  I know that by going through th…Read More

  3. Who Are You?

    Imagine this scenario, instead of asking the person you just met, “what do you do?” what if we asked them “who are you?” What kind of conversations would follow or not follow based on learning about someone’s image of themselves, their beliefs, goals, passions and priorities? As the young …Read More

  4. Rearview Mirror

    Self-assessing is a critical skill that if mastered, allows us to make improvements in our lives, relationships and facilitate our growth. However, if not done correctly, it can easily lead to being overly self-critical, a loss of confidence and lack of action. When I look back at my journey, I iden…Read More

  5. Quitting Is an Option

    We usually hear this quote in the reverse, where people tell you quitting is not an option. This is  done to keep you motivated, inspired and to get you to do more. Unfortunately, it is not true. We can always quit, and it is most definitely an option. To be honest, during this transition period in…Read More

    The definition of intentional is to be done on purpose; deliberate. How many of us go through each day without having any intentions about our happiness, fitness, relationships, finances and our lives? We wake up placing all our hope in external sources that they will come through and provide these …Read More

  7. How to Make Yourself Better      

    I am obsessed with self-improvement and working each day to create the best possible me.  I love varying my workouts to make sure my body does not get complacent and reading books that improve my knowledge or expose me to other viewpoints.  I love having conversations with people I respect to see …Read More

  8. Belief and Action

    I am truly appreciative of all of you that take time to read this weekly, and comment, like, share, or message us about it.  It is my hope the messages, self-reflection and honesty have brought about the same in you in some manner.  I must share that one of my biggest fears is that what we are doi…Read More

  9. Realization and Appreciation  

    In the winter of 2014 I wanted to challenge myself and accepted an opportunity to compete in a mixed martial arts fight.  I had never participated in individual sports growing up and was a tad bit older than average to be making my mma debut.  I was not sure if I would be able to handle the nerves…Read More

  10. Choose Wisely

    I've been told the presentations we have been doing have been very motivational.  While we appreciate the compliment, we don't want to only be motivational!   We know motivation comes and goes depending on circumstances, choices, and ultimately our habits.  If you spend time with us for an hour …Read More
