I am super productive on Monday mornings. I wake up ready to attack the week head on. Most Mondays I do not struggle to get out of bed at all. I throw back my coffee and exercise with zeal. I knock out all of my morning chores and do it while smiling. I go through… Continue reading Motivated Mondays
Finally! I have some time alone to sit and write. It has been almost 2 weeks so I’m about to burst. My schedule has been a bit hectic and finding time for me has been impossible. It’s not a bad thing as I’ve spent a lot of time with family and friends. In fact, it… Continue reading I’m Back!!

This is both a blessing and a curse. I love this about myself because it makes me… Continue reading Time is all we have

September 14, 2015 The only thing constant is change. I was born with an entrepreneurial mind that thrives off change. I evaluate situations and look for ways to make things more efficient, productive, and to solve problems.

September 12, 2016 Miserable is a strong word. I don’t use it lightly. Yes, I am miserable and have been for several years.

9/11/16 I’m stressed out. I’m tired. I’m guilt ridden. Heck, I’m downright miserable. I keep telling myself to be positive, to be grateful.

We have… Continue reading My Birthday Present to Myself
