I was born an overachiever. Add to this I am a Type-A first born and let’s just say I have struggled to stop doing. I walked before I crawled. (And was early on that.) I was keeping to-do lists in middle school (although I bet it was actually elementary.) I took my first personal development […]Continue reading

I love travel. but it has not always been that way. it was not till my late 20’s that I caught the travel bug. Then in my 40’s travel took on even more of a defined meaning. I finally figured out it was about more than just seeing new places or relaxing. It was healing. Emotionally healing.

Life happens. People hurt us. We hurt people. We need to forgive others. We need to forgive ourselves. No need to worry about if someone else forgives us. (That is 100% up to them and we should not take it personal.)We understand these concepts, but we have problems when it comes how exactly we forgive. It is […]Continue reading
Fear is debilitating. It stops you from being you. It stops you from reaching your dreams and goals. Fear destroys hope. With no hope you are stuck in fear longer. You begin to believe that fear is a normal state. The thing is that you don’t even realize you are being driven by fear. It is just your normal […]Continue reading
