Spicy snack time

 I am a lover of popcorn, the real kind, popped on the stovetop in a pan with coconut oil, my favorite healthy fat and nutritional powerhouse. For those whose eating guidelines don't allow fat, fire up that air popper! Popcorn is loaded with fiber and makes an excellent snack- with or without the oil, especially if you jazz it...

Start your engines

It's Monday and it is ON! I want to give you a quick mantra to start the week. Pocket it and be ready to circle back and have it at the ready because I can almost guarantee it will be of use to you in the near future. It comes from Brene' Brown, episode 3... Continue Reading →

Dots and Stars

One of my favorite children's stories is You Are Special by Max Lucado. It tells the story of the Wemmicks, a group of small wooden people who spend their days sticking gold stars or gray dots on one another, indicating their admiration or disdain of one other. The main character, Punchinello, receives only gray dots, no... Continue Reading →

In that same vein, I refuse to acknowledge Valentine's Day as anything beyond a commercialized event. Let's call a spade a spade- the emperor was naked and Valentine's... Continue Reading →

The “right” path

I have realized that any time I am feeling a sense of dissatisfaction or impatience with my own life, it's because I have allowed myself to become distracted by what the world is telling me I should, would, or could be doing, instead of staying focused on that which I know has been laid on...

Quieting the Logical Mind

Perhaps it's not the "logical" mind that I'm talking about as much as human nature that seems magnetically drawn to mimic the behaviors of our peers and deem them a favorable formula to emulate. Logical seems a subjective term, because perhaps you don't consider following the herd mentality to be logical at all. Perhaps you've been made aware of... Continue Reading →
