You matter

While the exact words from the conversation are blurry, the feelings stemming from that day in my parents' living room are crystal clear. My family was gathered together for a fun afternoon to be followed by dinner. We were catching up on what had been going on that week. I know I had a glass …

100 days

This was originally posted on my Crazy Cat Lady Coach facebook page about 10 days ago. Ironically, I began the post with, "Disclaimer: this post should likely be on a blog, but as I started it, I had no idea it would go this direction." It couldn't have been farther from the truth. And of …

NEVER GIVE UP!! You can do anything. No matter how old you are. No matter how much experience you have. No matter who says you can't do it! This is my first Granite Games workout. I decided to do the ASRx in my division (Masters 35-39) instead of the scaled version (like I did in …

Attitude 101

I propose that the #1 misconception about attitude is that it's out of our control. How many people do you know who have a bad attitude, yet deny it until they're blue in the face? You've run into a bad attitude before. You can smell it a mile away on someone. The look on their face, …

A Journey Begins with a Single Step

There are so many quotes surrounding the topic of a journey. But they all have one thing in common - "the starting step." So many people think about how their lives could be different if they did this or they did that. But they never actually act on those thoughts. They don't take any action. …
