So, 21 days ago I made a commitment to my community here and I'm happy to report that I've been completely, unequivocally dedicated to sticking it out! I've maintained at least half an hour of exercise daily. I've been watching what I eat, logging all of my food intake everyday (except for Wednesdays for some … Continue reading 21 Days Ago I Made A Commitment…And I Stuck With It!
4 Steps For Positive Change: Saying, Seeing, Feeling, Believing

As a spiritual psychologist, she helps people recognize and reconcile the emotional underpinnings that keep them from achieving their full potential.

On The Outside Looking In
There were many times in my life when I thought that my life was hard. I had days that dragged on forever...the BAD kind of forever. I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. My thoughts were dark, dreary, depressed, and violent. I was obsessed about controlling things that were out of … Continue reading On The Outside Looking In
Does Acupuncture Really Work?
Only time will tell, but so far (for me) YES. I went in for my first treatment last week and I was not quite sure what to expect. I did not come into it with a lot of research or understanding of its medicinal properties. I was really seeking some advice and answers on some … Continue reading Does Acupuncture Really Work?
Return From A Brief Respite Refreshed
It has been an interesting few days away. Despite my best intentions to maintain my Post A Day 2011 status I still have some days that I haven't been able to devote the few minutes it takes to tap out one of these blog entries. (I lie -- it never takes just a few minutes...it … Continue reading Return From A Brief Respite Refreshed
A Little Bit of Fiction, A Little Bit of Fact
I'm working from a skewed perspective tonight, so here's a little piece of fiction, mixed in with a little bit of fact. I'll leave it up to you to decipher. Will I take questions? Probably not. I'm pretty sure we're all leading mixed lives anyways. Sometimes separating truth from fiction is harder to do. -------------------- … Continue reading A Little Bit of Fiction, A Little Bit of Fact
The Power of Persuasion and Friendship…Starring YOU. Yeah, You.
All day today I had the pleasure of spending some 1-on-1 quality time with a few good friends. Over the past year I'd been more keen on widening this circle to include a multitude of my interests. I find that there is something very special about friendship -- you can never have too much of … Continue reading The Power of Persuasion and Friendship…Starring YOU. Yeah, You.
The Quickest Brand Identity Project I’ve Ever Completed
I designed the logo, website, and a social media theme TODAY in 8 hours. Now, I usually can't pull these types of miracles for my clients, so don't expect it! Also, fast doesn't always mean good, so be weary if someone will actually rush through such an important process. I had a lot of time … Continue reading The Quickest Brand Identity Project I’ve Ever Completed
Preventative/Reactive Healthcare (And Day 6 Progress Report)

Find The Best Enabler Within Yourself
Let me tell you, everything I've learned, I've learned from helping other people. I've been noticing a very interesting (and welcomed!) pattern emerging from my #postaday2011 habit -- I've been receiving more offline comments about my blog than online, via text messages, emails, phone calls, dinners, in person, private Twitter conversations, etc. Whenever someone reaches … Continue reading Find The Best Enabler Within Yourself
