Motivations

Where are you going?

It's Monday! It's time to get moving and get active. But we must always remember one thing: You can't know where you're going without knowing where you've been. Just think about it. The drive to move forward comes from the places we've been. I run because I knew it was something I never thought I [...]

I don't know why but this morning I woke up thinking about the things that people said I should/would never do. It's easy to get wrapped up I. The idea of what others think and say about us. I could sit here and tell you that you shouldn't care, but I know it's easier said [...]

The week is almost over and I can't wait for it to end. It's been a hard week or a couple of hard weeks have really hit me hard. A lot things haven't gone right, but I've been good at focusing on the good things. This week, I've been trying to step my game up. [...]

The new year is coming which means it's time to make new plans.  It's time to move forward.  It's time to leave 2014 in the past.  The door of possibilities swings open again, so don't be close minded!  Take the time to explore new avenues of in life.  Try something that you never thought you [...]

It's that time of year when we start to make New Year's resolutions.  Today is December 28th and most people are going to wait until January 1st to start living their "new" ways.  But why are you waiting?  Why not get a jump start on what you want right now? I never understood the waiting [...]

Good comes from a bad day

Yesterday was a pretty bad day.  Things has progressively gotten better throughout the day but it had taken a toll on me mentally.  A series of unfortunate events finally led me to the road.  I needed to burn off some of the stress that had been building all day. I hit the road to clear [...]

Brown Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, those are all over.  It's time for #GivingTuesday. So what is Giving Tuesday all about? Getting together to celebrate generosity by giving! We give all our money to the stores so why not give to help out a great cause. Last year we raised $2500 for the children [...]

There's nothing wrong with Thanksgiving eating but there is a problem with leftovers.  It's especially hard to be one of those people who HATES to throw food away.  Continuing the Thanksgiving eating for many days after Thanksgiving can be a problem. I woke up yesterday and saw a lot of food in the trash including [...]

You may have seen the Muscle and Fitness article about the effects of extreme weight loss on skin.  John David Glaude stripped down to show you what's it like.  The only thing I could think about when I saw it was, "he's pretty brave." His message is correct! He said he's comfortable clothed but not [...]

You are enough so embrace it.

It's a big world out there and sometimes it's hard to navigate and stay true to yourself.  I remember my teenage years and all the adults claiming "you'll find yourself as your grow older."  Everyone has heard the "just be you and don't worry about what other people think" speech, but it's easier said than [...]
