Consistency is Key

Consistency is key to sustainability. Intention, patience, and perseverance all play a role and they are all connected to consistency. Who are you in the world?

Every Day We Face Challenges

Every day we face challenges. Every day we succeed and we fail. Either way, we are called to keep going. Pick yourself up. Dust yourself off. Keep going. Keep moving.

The Older I Get

The older I get, the easier it is to identify when I get in my own way. Frustration, worry, annoyance, and anger are a few indicators that I need to step back, park my ego, breathe through my fear, and access my soul. This gives me an opportunity to express from my soul through my

If Your Relationship is Founded

If your relationship is founded on an underlying agenda of what you can get out of it, you need to shift your perspective. One-sided relationships become disentangled and embittered.

All Systems Go

All systems go! Check in with yourself. Assess all your systems. Is everything in good order or is adjustment needed?

You Know that Mountain

You know that mountain you have to climb? It’s just one step at a time. When you get to the top and see the vista on offer, you’ll see that there are other mountains waiting for you. Is that disheartening? If it is, shift your perspective. No mountain is the same. Every step on the way

What Makes You Hesitate?

What makes you hesitate? Is it doubt or surety? Doubt leads us to all kinds of fearful imaginings. Surety leads us to over-confident procrastination that puts us in ‘last minute’ mode. Whichever presents, the way to overcome them is to do it anyway. Take your time. Proceed with caution. Keep going. What will your day bring

Stray a Little

Stray a little from the beaten path to enjoy a new view. Look back to where you diverged. Which is more compelling: returning to what you are so used to or forging a new way forward? Go forward with confidence and a new sense of adventure. There is nothing to go back to as it no
