Alignment before Action

I am a former obsessive action taker. Over-achiever. Over-doer.

What does that mean? It means that I am really good with taking action, making things happen, and so forth. I truly cannot sleep or chill until I bring my visions to life…

That sounds great, but the results were not really showing up. I was constantly stressed, and felt like I was swimming uphill.

Something was not right. So I stepped back, and took a really long hard look at myself.

I have a history of burnout. It’s a pattern that seems to repeat itself in my life.

Feel motivated. Work like crazy. Get frustrated. Feel burnout. Quit.

Why stay trapped when the door is wide open?

My husband and I have these amazing talks whenever we drive in the car together. Recently I said something along the lines of the following… “I have a hard time understanding why people stay put in jobs that suck their soul, environments that are toxic, relationships that are harmful, and so forth.

Running a Business + Being a Mom

Hi!  

I have been totally swamped in motherhood over the past 10 days.  Bodie, who is not an easy toddler in general, got a cold early last week, that turned into a secondary infection last weekend.  He ended up on antibiotics.  My husband and I got the same bug, and went on antibiotics as well.  It's the first time I've had to take them in years!  

Being sick, and being a mom quite frankly sucks.

Being sick, and being a mom to a sick kid sucks even more.

Being sick, being a mom to a sick kid, and a wife to a sick husband is the worst!

Moving Can Be Awesome, but Do This First

As you may know, I recently moved from upstate NY to the the panhandle of Florida.  It's a move that I had dreamed about for years, and still cannot believe that it actually happened.  I love palm trees, balmy air, and water that is so clear and blue that you question if it's real life every damn day.  To get here, I gave up a lot.  I made changes that were uncomfortable, and never looked back.  I'm definitely happy...

...but not because we moved.
