A Life of Passion, Purpose, and Fulfillment

If you’ve read other posts of mine and seen me say that I’m a coach, raise your hand. What about if you’ve ever wondered what that means or what coaching even is? If your hand is already up you can just raise it higher. Well, wonder no more because today is all about sharing moreContinue reading “A Life of Passion, Purpose, and Fulfillment”

Happy Thoughts #20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, & 26

If you can’t tell by the title, the last week has been crazy! It’s also a great reminder for how quickly time can fly. I’m excited to say that my delay in posting is all for good reasons. This past weekend I attended a coaching workshop weekend – the last in my coaching certification –Continue reading “Happy Thoughts #20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, & 26”

Happy Thought #19 – Thinking Slow, Moving Fast

Do you ever find yourself with so many things on your to-do list that you’re not sure where to start? Every time you start thinking about tackling one item, another comes to mind, and then another, until you suddenly realize that 30 mins or an hour has gone by and you haven’t crossed anything offContinue reading “Happy Thought #19 – Thinking Slow, Moving Fast”

Happy Thought #17 – The Gift of Presence

In our fast-paced world, it’s ridiculously easy for our minds to be scattered. Our brains are incredible, problem-solving machines and, if we let them, they’ll jump from one task or problem to the next, without taking a moment to pause. Personally, I have a love-hate relationship with that mental efficiency. It has undoubtedly served meContinue reading “Happy Thought #17 – The Gift of Presence”

Happy Thoughts #14, 15, and 16

Time to catch up! 🙂 Happy Thought #14 – Being Okay with Imperfection This thought came from this past Thursday – the first of my missed posts. Funnily enough, the factContinue reading “Happy Thoughts #14, 15, and 16”

Happy Thought #13 – The Smells of My Neighborhood

I just finished an evening walk in my neighborhood where I had the pleasure of coming across some wonderful smells that brought a smile to my face: Smoke from someone’s fireplace. Combined with the crisp, cold air, it brought me back to snowy winter nights growing up warm and comfy in front of the Fire.Continue reading “Happy Thought #13 – The Smells of My Neighborhood”

Happy Thought #12 – Seeing the Fruits of Your Labor

One of the biggest struggles many of us face, myself included, is enduring patience while working through changes that simply cannot happen overnight but instead require consistent time and effort to see results. For the individual, this could be that weight they’ve been trying to lose for years. For a corporate leader, this could beContinue reading “Happy Thought #12 – Seeing the Fruits of Your Labor”

Happy Thought #11 – Feeling Productive

Today is the first day in about a week where I’ve actually felt like a productive human being – which makes that my official happy thought for the day. 🙂 It’s funny because you’d think that our happiest days are the days when we don’t have to work and we can relax and lounge allContinue reading “Happy Thought #11 – Feeling Productive”

Happy Thought #s 8, 9, and 10

My cold finally got the better of me so I’ve missed posting my last few happy thoughts. I haven’t missed making note of them, though. Time to catch up! Happy Thought #8 – Leftover Christmas Lights Last weekend, I packed up all of our Christmas decorations, except our Christmas tree and lights, which I justContinue reading “Happy Thought #s 8, 9, and 10”

Happy Thought #7 – Knowing You’re Not Alone

I’m still feeling under the weather, so this will be another short post. Leading into the holidays, I was struggling particularly hard to keep everything together – my work obligations, chores at home, keeping in touch with loved ones. The sum weight of 2020 made it difficult for me to give proper attention to detailsContinue reading “Happy Thought #7 – Knowing You’re Not Alone”
