Why You Need to Slow Down Before the New Year

Why You Need to Slow Down Before the New Year

This year I had a few ah ha moments that caused me to slow down. I realized that what was meant for me will never miss me and what misses me was never meant for me.

Knowing this brought me to a halt. I took the time to pivot and shift things in my business and my family and exceeded most of the goals that I’ve set for the year.  

I'm sharing three reasons why you should slow down too. 

My #31DaysofFitness

My #31DaysofFitness

Recently I had an epiphany. I knew I had to get my butt up and start moving. If I was expecting a blessing of good health, I had to be willing to get up and work for it.

I decided to put my big girl britches on and do the work. I came up with this bright idea to go live on Periscope while working out for a few times a week. It’s the #31DaysofFitness challenge.

What fitness lifestyle changes are you committing to before the new year? If you need some accountability or support and want in on the fun, make sure that you’re following me on twitter.

The Virgin Islands Taught me to “Stop. Look. Go.”

Lots of #lessons learned from traveling home to the #VirginIslands. 

Things that we often take for granted — electricity, running water, wifi, a hot plate of food and so much more were scarce commodities. Witnessing the devastation by hurricane Maria & Irma firsthand reminded me that family + community is everything - without them life is meaningless.

Why the Best Time to Plant a Tree Was 20 Years Ago

Why the Best Time to Plant a Tree Was 20 Years Ago

Have you heard that Chinese proverb before?

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” 

As simple as it may sound, it’s true. The best time to make a plan was 20 years ago, but the second best time is now! Tomorrow isn’t promised. That’s why today is a present. 

That said, I’m doing my best to finish the year strong and work on my #ACTIONPLAN.

I'm sharing 3 ways simple but not-so-obvious strategies that I’m using to begin taking #ACTION today.

Why I'm Ditching my Goals and Making an #ACTIONPLAN

Why I'm Ditching my Goals and Making an #ACTIONPLAN

Big picture planning without creating action fades quickly for me. There’s been many years that were “new” but it was the same old me. I’ve been using what I like to call my ACTION PLAN. I broke down my big picture goals to the month, week and I even use daily plans. Basically, I reversed engineered it. An action plan is the not-so-obvious secret way to achieve your goals.

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY SON ON HIS 12TH BIRTHDAY

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY SON ON HIS 12TH BIRTHDAY

12 years ago today, my world changed when he was born.
9 years ago today, my world changed when my mother passed. All on the same day. At that point, my world shattered and it felt like I no longer had a reason to live. I didn’t realize how my love could be evenly/unevenly distributed. Read an open letter to my son on his twelfth birthday -  a reminder that he is a WORLD CHANGER.
