It Starts With A Thought (The Beginning Of Change)

Everyone reaches a “decision point” in their life.

You’ve reached that point that you realize that the path you are on is leading somewhere you don’t want to go.

We all have areas of our life that we feel needs work.

The Art Of “No”

There have been many a day when I’ve sat on our couch, reflected back on my working day and just had one thought: “What the hell happened today?”. In my line of work, it’s really easy to lose control of your day. If you are a strong problem-solver, people will look to you to handle…

Best Laid Plans Of The Mouse

You've heard the phrase “Best laid plans of mice and men” right? I put a few to pen last week and set my sights high toward a great week ahead. My goals included: Adding some miles. Dropping some pounds. Gaining some motivation. Getting consistent in writing. Guess what?! I didn't achieve a damn one of…

Let’s Get Started (Again)

I've read a lot over the last couple of months. Mostly books relating to how I can improve the quality of life, both for myself as well as others. Somewhere along the way I kept forgetting to write on my blog… So, here we are again. 1) I simplified the front page of the blotto…

On the flip side of that coin, if your are happy and…

Bring Me To Life

I’ve had a bit of a challenge being consistent in my writing. To be clear, I write more for my own benefit than anything else. It’s my way of putting my random thoughts to pen and trying to make sense of them. Now for my most recent mental rumblings… _____________________________ My topic today is life:…

One + One = Three

Me being a former Arkansan has nothing to do with my math as noted in the title. It’s just me making a point. (Just explains the poor use of grammar). The point is this: The way I’ve been living my live just doesn’t add up! Confused? Me too. Let me break it down a bit…
