Becoming More Intentional in 2017

In October, I start thinking about my ‘word of the year’. Last year, my word was ‘service’ that meant I worked hard to help friends, my family, my community and The Mister. I volunteered in the winter teaching children and adults with disabilities how to ski, I volunteered to help my aunt and uncle at any flower market they needed me at, we made meals for friends when they moved in or were sick, I gave money and food to the homeless. It was an awesome year that reminded me to think of others before myself. This year I’m changing gears, I’m thinking about myself again. I know, I know....more

Our Life List

‘The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.’ ~ Steven Furtick I was watching a program that talked about bucket lists. It got me thinking that I would rather call it a life list. The term bucket list reminds me of dying; a life list reminds me of living. As I pondered what new things I would put on my life list, I was feeling a bit discouraged. It was as if I didn’t have the energy to even think about writing a list, let alone doing it....more

Fall Goals

When Life Gives Lemons

Currently, life is crazy. I'm not sure we've really adjusted to the new school year. Maybe it was too much beach time this summer or the kids not wanting to wear uniforms or the longer school day. Who knows. What I do know...life is crazy....more

Every Victory Counts

It’s been two weeks since we last ordered pizza! Yes, its ridiculous that I’m so proud of that.I was chatting to a client today about long term goals and she mentioned that sometimes she feels like its so far away. Yes, a long term goal usually is far away, hence why its called a ‘LONG term’ goal. I told her, and it helped me realise, we need to celebrate every short term goal that is met, every small achievement and every step in the right direction....more
