  • High-Five!

    Give yourself a high-five. Seriously. Do it. Right now. Walk to a mirror, raise your arm, and high five your reflection. I’ll wait. Did you do it? How do you feel? Did you smile? Or giggle a little as you did it? Did you make eye contact with yourself? Did …

    It’s been real. But before we close the book on this crazy, upside down year, let’s take a moment to reflect. I think we can all agree that it’s been quite the year. Nothing any of us could have possibly imagined. For some, the year was an opportunity to slow …

    Quarantining has given us nothing but time, but sometimes, too much time can be counterproductive to progress.

    Sometimes the day doesn’t go as planned – especially if you’re someone living with chronic pain. And that’s OK. I used to be one who would beat myself up when I didn’t hit my mark for a run – it would ruin the rest of my day. But somewhere along …

    Lately I’ve been writing about transforming your life and ways to take the first steps in developing healthier patterns. The first step in that transformation is self-reflection. There are many ways to reflect on your past, and there are many suggestions to organize your thoughts/days/months/years. Last year, I chose to …

    A few months ago, I was listening to The Adult Chair podcast titled The Power of Intentions. In this podcast, Michelle Chalfant described the difference between a resolution and an intention, and immediately I was hooked. We all know that resolutions don’t work – most of the time. If you …

    In July 2009, I was on a plane on my way to Spain. I was running away from another failing relationship, spending money I didn’t really have to spend, and hiding from the truth I would only come to recognize six years later: I needed to change my life. I …

    I’m ashamed to report that a majority of my adult life – the time between my high school graduation and my 30th birthday – I didn’t know the power of reflection. I assumed that everything that was happening in my life was a result of things happening TO me, that …

    I’m going to brag for a minute because I’m proud of myself. Proud. It’s been made out to be such a dirty word – it’s unbecoming to be proud of oneself. It’s considered a deadly sin, to be proud. But when you work your ass off and you start seeing …
