    A Simple Ring

    A few months ago, I decided to buy myself a ring…that sounds a bit weird, I know. And at first glance, it could definitely pass as an engagement ring…which I’ve had a few people ask in a mixture of shock and excitement, if I was actually engaged. To their disappointment (not so much mine), I said no.  There were 2 main reasons why I decided to start wearing a ring: Reason One: This is dumb but I don’t care…Part of my reason was to keep people away from me while…

    Speak Your Truth

    **Warning — Emotionally Raw Post – At Least for Me It Is** This morning I was asked something that I didn’t think would hit me as hard as it did, let alone cause a mini crying fit. It was like a gut punch, and one that I’ve subconsciously been ignoring for who knows how long and the right person with the right question brought my awareness to it.  “Were you told to shut up a lot in previous relationships?”  Such a simple question, but one that cut a lot deeper…

Not being able to coach right now, I need to put some sort of focus into my day outside of my morning routine. Every day, I wake up at 6am, cook breakfast, brew some coffee, grab a book or my journal and settle in for about an hour before working out. That’s my morning routine. At the…

    5 Strategies to Beat the Quarantine Blues

    I don’t want to say the world is in chaos, but it’s definitely not in sync or in peace right now. With the recent events of the COVID-19 outbreak, the world and our individual world has taken a hard hit to the ego. Right now, we are all experiencing a variety of emotions and feelings that we may not know how to process/handle, because we really have no idea what is coming next. We don’t know when or what the new “normal” will be. Quarantine: A state, period, or place…

  • A Year in Review

    Can you believe its December already? We have less than a month until we will be in 2019…crazy! I don’t know about you, but this year flew by for me and so many wonderful things have happened.
