Now Is The Time To Lead by Example

I think it is safe to say 2020 hasn’t started how any of thought it was going to. I wake up everyday and the first thing to comes to mind is, “what do I need to fear today?”. I makes me so sad that our children have to experience this and how this pandemic willContinue reading “Now Is The Time To Lead by Example”

I’m Standing in the Ashes of Who I Used To Be

If you are looking for me I will be walking around aimlessly with a smirk on my face. Most of you probably haven’t seen or heard much from in the past little while. This week marks the end of what feels like a very long learning journey. At the age of 49 years old, IContinue reading “I’m Standing in the Ashes of Who I Used To Be”

What Defines Failure?

How do I define failure? I have been reflecting on this question a lot lately. The past several months has been less than awesome for me. I have shared a bit here about some of the things going on in my life and some I haven’t. As I have mentioned in a previous blog myContinue reading “What Defines Failure?”

A New Way of Thinking and Knowing….

  It was interesting to me how many people were not only happy for me that I had the guts to make the decision to stop running but what had a bigger impact for me was how many people said they were happy I was able to make that decision without beating myself up aboutContinue reading “A New Way of Thinking and Knowing….”

Life Is Short – Do What You LOVE!

Today I made the tough decision to stop running.  It has been a long time since I enjoyed a run which can make training for your first marathon even more daunting.  Today I set out to do a 7k run but shortened it to 5k because I wasn’t enjoying it. This has been on myContinue reading “Life Is Short – Do What You LOVE!”

Never Quit Trying…

I feel like it’s been forever since I sat down and journaled my thoughts and this past few weeks have been a bit of a mind f&%$ so I thought I would sit down and write, which for me, helps process thoughts and think through stuff. The past couple months I have been struggling toContinue reading “Never Quit Trying…”

Picking Daisies….

I used to blog when I needed to get things off my chest or to celebrate a victory. Most recently I have not been blogging. Period. It’s been a rough start to 2018 and I had to really ask myself why I haven’t been blogging throughout this hiccup. I have always tried to keep shitContinue reading “Picking Daisies….”

That’s a Wrap!

I was asked this morning what I thought of 2017. I had to really think about it for a few seconds. So many awesome things happened for me in 2017, it was a year of personal growth and clarity on many levels. On the other hand, it’s also been frustrating and a challenging year forContinue reading “That’s a Wrap!”

Peeling the layers – Getting to the Core

Peeling the layers of an onion, is what I think of when I think about how my transformation has taken place over the past few years.

When the onion peeledContinue reading “Peeling the layers – Getting to the Core”
