The Best Ways to Stay Healthy on Vacation

Is Failure An Option?

Is Failure An Option?
Failure has three different definitions according to Google:
  1. lack of success
  2. omission of expected or required action
  3. the action or state of not functioning
At this moment, I feel like there is a lack of success in two new business ventures I launched since March.

How Does Our Mindset Lead to Making Every Day Great?

How Does Our Mindset Lead to Making Every Day Great?
For me, the reason I choose to ask myself difficult questions is that I want to grow. I want to keep moving forward in my life and in my business. To paraphrase Jim Rohn, if you're not growing, you're dying. Nothing in life ever stays still. And it's up to us to decide which direction we are going.

Is it Possible That We Are All Artists?

Is it Possible That We Are All Artists?
The beach my territory. I never wanted to be a part of the 5 am club, yet I now set an alarm to wake up at 4 am to get to the beach for sunrise. Risking deer on the road. Alone at the beach. Wild animals surrounding me. Breathing in clear sea air and taking photos of the rising sun. This is where I would be even as the last person on earth. This is where my creativity is found.

Do You Feel Like You're Wasting Time?
Our days are outlined by the sun rising and setting. During the summer, the days can be more than 16 hours long, depending on where you live.

How Does Gratitude Change Our Attitude?

How Does Gratitude Change Our Attitude?
How does practicing daily gratitude change our attitude? This is something I have been experimenting with in my own life for over a decade. You may think that because I choose to write about gratitude often that it's easy for me to maintain a positive attitude. The truth is, it's not always sunshine and roses. 

Creating More Time in Our Lives

Creating More Time in Our Lives
Time is such a special gift. Yet many of us go through life acting as though we have an endless supply. Every day I wake up and say thank you for the gift of another day. Tomorrow is not promised. Trust me, when you've survived a life threatening illness as I have, those words ring true.

Making the Most of Every Morning

Making the Most of Every Morning
Our morning routines are what sets the tone for the day. Choosing a few non-negotiable actions that you do each morning can have a huge positive impact on your day.

Vulnerability and Gratitude with Bréne Brown

"Photography is a really important gratitude practice for me. Sometimes when I’m struggling, I’ll just grab my camera and go outside. I’ll put a macro lens on or something and I’ll lay in my front yard and take a picture of blades of grass or flowers or, and then I love editing those, sharing those.  Just really simple stuff, the things that I walk by every day and don’t notice." - Bréne Brown
