The power of journaling

Growing up I spent many many weekends sleeping over at my Grandma’s house. I absolutely loved these sleepovers because they meant special time just for me, staying up late, playing games, and eating lots of junk with one of my favorite people.

The ultimate de-clutter

I love to get rid of junk and clutter. I love the feeling of cleaning out a closet and saying goodbye to the things I didn’t even know I had, or cleaning out my pantry and then discovering, “Oh hey, I didn’t need the two-pack of ranch dressing from Costco because Oh look, there’s two …

Band-aids

There have never been FUN band-aids at my house. When at the drug store my kids oogle over the endless selection on the shelves. Paw Patrol, Spiderman, Barbie, Hello Kitty and these are just a few. If your kids watch it on Netlfix, you bet you can get it on a band aid. In my …

Enough with the negativity

This week I had an Ah-ha moment. I have these often when I am in a coaching session. A hidden piece of my mind becomes exposed and magnified so I can’t help but see it. I realized that in one of my relationships I was lost in negative land and it was almost to the …
