Overwhelm

Because the big goals I have are all around the kind of person I want to be. And when you focus on the one thing you can do - consistently - every day, little by little, that’s where the magic happens.

Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oatmeal

I love oatmeal in the winter. And not the prepackaged-full of sugar kind. The real stuff. The steel cut whole, hearty, stick to your ribs kind.

But who has 20 minutes (or even 7 for the quick cook kind) every morning?

So, I make it in big batches, in my slow cooker overnight every 2 weeks, freeze it and unthaw it as needed. It’s hearty, keeps me full and warms the soul on a chilly winter morning.

Replacing Your Limiting Beliefs

Whether we're aware of it or not, we go out into the world to prove what we believe about ourselves - good or bad.

Normally, it takes three years to train and learn how to break a board. When I was told I could learn it in 30 minutes, I had all kinds of self doubt.

Rock Bottom

I hit rock bottom and I didn't even know it.

It was three years ago and if you asked me then, I would have told you that life was pretty good. I had finally met my biggest business goal, making the most money I ever had. I was traveling for three weeks in South America and I had just purchased my very first home. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?

One Word

Just before Christmas last year, I was Skyping with a friend who told me about the One Word concept. She said that instead of setting a whole bunch of New Year's resolutions, she would pick one word. She explained that she focused on who she wanted to become and as a result accomplished a whole lot more.

I’ll Buy My Own Flowers

I turned thirty-five this year. It was Easter Sunday and I refused to see anyone. It was a tough day. I wasn’t where I wanted to be in life and I was extremely hard on myself about it.

Weeks later, I went home and my family celebrated with cake and candles. I wasn’t sure what was going on or who it was for. Neither did my grandmother who said, “what’s going on? Did you finally find yourself a boyfriend?”

The Power of Connection

How a little girl in an orphanage taught me more about myself than any other self-help tools.

I went to Peru - signed up for something called Give & Grow expecting to find my gift. Instead, a little girl gave me the greatest gift of all.
