A Green Hue

I’m driving down the highway. The sky is clear and the sun is shining. Only a slight chill was noticeable this morning. The past few days were overcast with wind and rain. All I can seemingly do is to reflect on the laundry list of tasks that need my attention today, not to mention tomorrow’s…

Overcommitted

Several years ago I was anxiety-ridden to an extreme. I was at one point even medicated for my anxiousness, especially pertaining to situational OCD. I would literally fear things like health issues so frequently that I’d manifest symptoms, which worsened over time. I eventually got off medication once my mind could recognize and rationalize my…

How Bright is Your Light?

How Bright is YOUR Light? We could all be considered a lamp, yet we shine most from the inside, not from seeking fulfillment on the outside. Join me for a quick story and subsequent realizations about what matters most in life!

KOBE

So sad today at the passing of Kobe Bryant.

God's Work

Do people put you down? Does someone in your life dismiss your dreams? We can still choose to shine bright!

The GOOD Fight

Perhaps a perspective of learning through hardship could help us still find JOY in the hard times… Here are a couple recent examples that helped me learn this very fact! We have a choice on the lens we see life through!

Peace, Happiness and Contentment

Almost four years ago I was left feeling empty after years of “success.” I couldn’t muster up the ability to write down any goals, only three words: Peace, Happiness and Contentment. Little did I know this was a pivotal moment in my life, as I entered my “Jesus Year.” I’m excited to say I can write down goals for the first time after a transformative few years of life!

Tis the Season

I believe I was in 5th grade. My mom went so overboard for Christmas that year I actually still remember it. When you’re a kid, Christmas is mostly about getting presents. This particular year was full of surprises. I was at the age when sports were really starting to be a main focal point. I…
