Like A Fine Wine🍷

What if I told you that everything you’ve experienced in your life was 100% necessary for you – would you believe it? My birthday is tomorrow (I’m accepting all gifts, greetings, lunches, dinners, cakes, clothes and money without shame – let me know if you need to know my sizes!). Birthdays always breed a time…

Read Your Own Receipts

  I’m all for speaking life and encouraging others, and that includes dishing out some good ol’ fashion TOUGH love. However, it starts at home first. It’s very easy to point out what other people aren’t doing. But, here’s the reality – you can’t control anyone but yourself. Now, this is not a new phenomenon, but I have to remind myself of…

A Little Reminder 💡

“Our Deepest Fear” by Marianne Williamson “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?…

Thin Air

I have a hate-hate relationship with the stair master…yes, I said it. I hate it and (judging how I feel when I climb off that treacherous machine) it surely hates me. If I don’t have time to take a class at the gym, I usually do a 30-45 minute mashup between the treadmill, the elliptical,…

It’s May 31st

 Sometimes my Spotify playlist gets me all the way together. I’m an early riser on most days. Shutting off alarms at 5am, 6am, or 7am doesn’t scare the kid. However, even when I’m up, I’m not always active. Today was one of those days. As I rolled out of bed to begin my morning routine, I opened my Spotify…

Pep Talk: So What

This 2 minute pep talk is geared toward my recent graduates, but it’s really for anyone who needs to free yourself from a little internal, societal, or familial pressure. Add these two words to your vocabulary in this order: SO WHAT  The gist: Be able to enjoy the person you are right now instead of worrying about who you should…

You Can Do It

I tried to be all deep ya’ll…I really did. I drafted a whole ‘nother blog for today’s post but I said to myself (in my most educated vernacular), “Nah.” For those of you who don’t know, I graduated with my Master’s degree last Friday from Middle Tennessee State University. It was an epic feeling, especially…

The Only Way I Eat #DrEricThomas

Ever since I received my Walkman and my Men In Black cassette during Christmas ’97, I’ve had headphones. We’ve upgraded since then (come through Steve Jobs and Bill Gates), but I learned very early that I could drown out a lot of things (or parents) if I turned my music up. Fast forward to the…

Did You Know Bees Can’t Fly?🐝

According to the laws of aerodynamics The bumblebee cannot fly Its body too heavy for its wings And that’s the simple reason why. But the bumblebee doesn’t know this fact, and so it flies anyway for all to see. Remember this when you’re losing faith or hope God’s proof that the impossible can be. – A.S. Waldrop…
