Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m reminded to slow down, be present, and savor simplicity. The week started with a student standing out in the cold shivering. I invited her inside to warm up until the bell. A powerful conversation about personal challenges and future goals surprisingly ensued. Choosing to pump the breaks on the morning rush and clock watching opened the door to our memorable conversation. I was inspired by her openness and tenacity. Enjoying a matinee, playing Monopoly, drinking coffee, and enjoying a meal at the table are simple; yet, significant. There’s value in slowing down. There’s value in being present. There’s value in simplicity. They foster contentment, connection, and love, which is the most significant.

Sunday Quote, 12/02/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m pretty much wired to be a tight lipped doer. I rarely ask for help, nor reveal too much. More of a hunker down, hold on tight and grind, grind, grind some more kind of person. This week vulnerability was catapulted to the forefront. I’m reminded I can’t be all things to all people and asking for help or delegating doesn’t mean I’m weak. There’s strength in being vulnerable and asking for assistance is actually empowering. Here’s to putting the ego on the shelf and being open to vulnerability!

Sunday Reflection Quote…With all the pushes and pulls of society, especially during the holidays, I’m reminded to seek the balance of “wise mind.” There are tugs of emotional mind and walls of reasonable mind that become more pronounced this time of year. I’m choosing to give power to simplicity, quality, and authenticity. The rest will blow over and I rebuke it having any power over me.

Sunday Quote, 11/18/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m reminded saying yes to opportunities or new adventures can be incredibly fulfilling. At the same time, saying no or establishing boundaries are essential in maintaining happiness. Balance is key and clear priorities makes it easier. Life is short…here’s to being choosy; choosing contentment and simplicity over stress.

Sunday Quote, 10/28/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…Even when the pause button is occasionally pressed, it’s important to release and play again. I’m choosing to create a life filled with simplicity and contentment, rather than defined by parameters or assumed expectations of others. I’m reminded saying yes or no thanks, asking for help, saying sorry, giving it a try sweetens the journey.

Sunday Quote, 10/21/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…When life is overwhelmingly challenging and full of darkness it’s hard to believe there’s light. Four years ago I was immersed in that space. Incredibly downtrodden, defeated, unfocused, and unsettled. I had to force myself to find daily joy points in the simple things…making the bed, cooking, hearing a great song, feeling the wind in my hair, or watching the sun set. Over time, setting small intentions and following through eventually brought me out of the muck. Little did I know those baby steps were planting seeds of contentment. Never would I have imagined I’d be in the space I am today. What a gift to finally harvest peace!

Sunday Quote, 10/8/18

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, Monday)…The past week the theme of perspective bubbled to the surface. We have our own experiences; our own truths. The story within ourselves carves decisions and the path ahead. Sometimes perspective can become skewed by external influences; however, intentional reflection can reset back to the authentic core. I’m reminded to pause and take the time to actually see. Seeing rather than looking; listening rather than hearing yields more value and understanding.

Sunday Quote, 09/30/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week I’m reminded I can’t be all things to all people; it isn’t reasonable. I can only do the best I can with what I have. Not everything is to be compared, nor a competition. Who I am and what I do (or don’t) is good enough!
