Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…I closed out the last week of summer break with 54 holes of competition and commenced 22 years in education today. For me, it is essential to have goals and challenge myself with stretch experiences. At the same time, expectations (too much too soon) without laying down the groundwork can lead to disappointment. I’m reminded life is sweetened by risk, but responsive mindset is key. Zooming too far can magnify blind spots resulting in tunnel vision. Here’s to maintaining a positive attitude when facing challenges and keeping my eye on the prize.

Sunday Quote, 8/4/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Success perches on a continuum. For some it means getting out of bed, keeping an addiction at bay, or putting food on the table. For others it is a big job title, the bottom line, or square footage. For me, success is simply health and happiness peppered with fond memories and stretch experiences. I’m more successful now than I’ve been in years. Maintaining balance and boundaries has been key. I no longer feel compelled to give the over used 110%. For who? For what? Some days 75-100% is simply good enough! Here’s to celebrating the small efforts; efforts consistently repeated yielding the juiciest fruit.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Coming off a week of connections, memories, and experiences I’m reminded simplicity is key. After playing a golf course surrounded by million dollar homes or spending the weekend at a casino resort, it is easy to get caught up in materialism and comparisons. I’m reminded what’s projected on the outside doesn’t necessarily mirror what’s on the inside. For me, a foundation of simplicity is a great stabilizer. Here’s to creating my own contentment by choosing to pepper life with quality experiences and maintaining a focus of simplicity.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Shifts require awareness. After giving the nod, it then takes courage to act. Based on my own standards, in order to be happy I have intentionally pushed through perceived expectations and assumptions. At times I have felt vulnerable and raw. At times I have felt like I’ve been voted off the island. At times I have felt confused and defeated. Nonetheless, through prioritizing, reflection, baby steps, and multiple resets I have created my own happiness. Here’s to continuing to shift my weight. #sunday #reflection #quote #tomstoppard #happiness #health #wellness #contentment #equilibrium #shift #priorities #letgo #forgiveness #determination #grit #goals #society #expectations #assumptions #mindfulness #myownstory #keeponkeepingon

Sunday Reflection Quote…Although I’ve improved quite a bit the last few years, I still have a propensity to be very hard on myself. This is good in that there’s motivation punctuated with focus and determination. However, there’s also immense internal pressure and self-doubt. I’m reminded who I am and what I’ve accomplished is simply good enough. Here’s to continuing to taking care of myself, so that I can enjoy my journey.

Sunday Quote, 6/23/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks has comprised of competition, intentional planning, goal setting, and nuanced communication. I’m reminded to step up to share my strengths. At the same time, to not be so hard on myself. It’s easy to fall prey to mental tugs; tugs that yield weeds. Here’s to keeping my eye on the blooms.

Sunday Quote, 6/9/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…I woke up years ago and realized I was in the midst of a race I never planned to compete in. Once the eyes were open, striving for my own lane was an immense grind. As I close the door on school year twenty-one and embark on another summer, I can honestly say I’ve created my own lane. Others have no idea (cuz vault), but that’s irrelevant. What matters is that I know; I know I’m defining my own lane and finally winning.

Sunday Quote, 6/2/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week I was reminded expectation leads to disappointment. Every. Single. Time. When there’s a picture in my head and things don’t go as planned, I get upset. There’s a continuum of feeling hurt, less than, or rejected. Although I keep on keeping on, truthfully it weighs on my heart. I’m reminded I can only have expectations for myself and do the best I can with what I have. Here’s to being in wise mind and not shoulding on myself.
