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!

The State of My Union

I had a great time in Breckenridge over the long weekend with family and Britt. I hadn’t snowboarded in over a year, given the fact I live in Scottsdale, AZ. I took a nasty spill day one. I honestly don’t remember how I fell on the side of my head because it happened so fast….

Backwards Growth

Why do we go from success to failure so quickly? Why are some days so much easier than others to accomplish the same thing? 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!

Surrender Project Update: Crossing 250 Days

I started my Surrender Project early May of 2019. I did so because I was worn out trying to figure out life on my own. I was tired from obsessively trying to control my future. I was tired of chasing fulfillment in work, from loved ones, and via external pleasures. I was tired of hurting…

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!

Shedding

I’ve mentioned SHEDDING in a few posts recently. I feel like it deserves ample focus as I continue to experience different versions of the word. What am I SHEDDING though? The first thing I think of when I hear the word SHEDDING is how my dog Murphy leaves more hair around my house than is…

Ashley McBryde’s Song: “Girl Goin’ Nowhere”

I have to admit, I’m a sucker for a good country music song. Literally some of my favorite moments in life involve country music to some extent. We’re headed to a couple of concerts over the next two weeks as a matter of fact, including seeing Luke Combs TWICE! And of course, another Eric Church…

Surrender Project: 6 Month Update

Hello friends! I’m back home in Scottsdale, AZ as I write this. Hawaii was a great time, yet I’m officially ready to be “back at it” now that I’m home! I appreciate all of your messages, recommendations and love on Instagram throughout our trip. I looked at my STREAKS App over the weekend and realized…

Burning My Suits

Hawaii has been fun. I’m writing this while gazing at the beach in Kaanapali. Needless to say, my setup isn’t too shabby. Here’s a pic of Britt and I on the beach (selfie warning)… When you’re in the finance world, you quickly learn via counterparts and management that “dressing to impress” is essential to success….

Purposeful Transition

HELLO FRIENDS! I’ve had a word on my mind a TON lately: SHEDDING. Some of my most anxious moments in life have come during periods of transition. Personally or professionally, anxiety tends to come with the unknowns of change. Have you ever felt that change was on the horizon, yet you didn’t know exactly how…
