Sunday Reflection Quote…Just like that, we’re all getting schooled. Ironically, while we try to flatten the curve, the learning curve is insanely steep. The levels of adversity we’re experiencing as individuals and as a collective spans a continuum. The end points unknown. I’m reminded we all perceive and process adversity differently. Each predicated on prior experiences; each equally valid. Here’s to acknowledging the difficulties, shifting gears, and pressing on.

Sunday Quote, 02/23/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether the past is an hour ago or decades, second thoughts only begets guilt or regret. Whether observing others in a superficial or competitive light, comparison only begets inferiority or envy. I’m reminded neither living in the past, nor observing others is conducive to creating value. Here’s to honoring gifts of the present and fostering happiness.

Sunday Reflection Quote…It’s the time of year for resolutions and/or goal setting. For the first time ever, mine are written out, posted on the refrigerator, and shared with only one person. Cuz human, it’s easy to make excuses, point fingers, or quickly dismiss. Discipline is the challenge. To grind when exhausted, downtrodden, or disheartened is the ultimate self-test. I’m reminded there’s only one person we answer to; one journey to navigate. Here’s to crossing the bridge over and over and checking off those accomplishment boxes, no matter how small they may be.

Sunday Quote, 12/15/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks reminded me the doer can’t to it all, nor can the pleaser please everyone. Everything isn’t equally important. Prioritizing how I choose to invest my time and energy makes a difference. Here’s to focusing on what creates value, joy, and contentment!

Sunday Quote, 11/24/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…This thing called life is quite the ride. There are highs, lows, and unexpected turns. I’ve realized November is a tough stretch for me. There are painful emotional triggers punctuated by professional stressors. A downtrodden funk took hold, but I’m relieved to genuinely pull out of it and turn a positive corner. I’m reminded once AGAIN staying in the moment and having an attitude of gratitude is key. Here’s to continuing to rebuke bitterness and choosing to grow!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Sometimes situations slowly roll in like a relentless fog; blurring positivity of the present. This week I caught myself feeling frustrated regarding circumstances I have no control over. I caught myself feeling disappointed due to internalized expectations. I tasted hints of bitterness and felt my shell start to harden. I’m reminded that’s not what I’m about. Here’s to rebuking the fog and resetting my essence.

Sunday Quote, 10/27/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last two weeks racked up to be a doozy. End of quarter grading, multiple meetings, reports, data analysis, safety drills, duty, and deflating moments drained my tank. I’m reminded self care is absolutely essential. Here’s to having inner peace doing the best I can with the time I have. Besides, thin peanut butter? Why bother. 😉

Sunday Quote, 10/13/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Life, longevity, and legacy have been lingering on my palate. I’m realizing more and more how short life truly is. One’s just peachy “normal” can be broadsided leaving a trail of disbelief or devastation. I’m reminded to savor the moment, to buy the ticket, and to speak up when necessary. Here’s to making it count; making memories.

Sunday Quote, 9/29/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week I was reminded saying “no” is not only allowed, but healthy. Carrying guilt or assumed disappointment is such an energy drain. It is not reasonable to be all things to all people. However, it is reasonable to take care of myself and prioritize time as needed. I’m still the same person. Here’s to continuing to maintain balance and caring for myself!

Sunday Quote, 9/22/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…The compare/contrast brain raised its gnarly head again. I find myself questioning multiple facets in the professional, personal, and physical realms. What a fruitless, viscous cycle. Thankfully, I’ve become much better at giving those thoughts a nod, then a swift kick to the curb. I’m reminded I’ve worked incredibly hard to be who and where I am. There’s nothing wrong with having confidence, being choosy, and maintaining authenticity. Here’s to “being that self!” #sunday #reflection #quote #sorenkierkegaard #beyourself #authentic #bechoosy #onelife #simplicity #happiness #contentment #wellness #confidence #goodenough #acceptance #enjoythejourney #myownstory #keeponkeepingon
