Sunday Reflection Quote…This week there was a peppering of interactions where I wasn’t feeling good enough. I got caught up in comparisons regarding how/when things are done, what one has experienced, appearances, or status achieved. I realized I was mentally caving to feeling inferior. Such a bunch of hooey!! Reminding myself not everything is a competition.

Sunday Quote, 8/6/17


Sunday Reflection Quote…This week “let go” was revealed over and over. I tend to hold on incredibly tight…to the past, to the future, to disappointments, to aspirations, to insecurities, and to certainties. Clenching and steering feeds fears and builds walls. I’m reminded releasing and accepting feeds happiness, a much richer journey to savor.

Sunday Quote, 7/16/17

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks have been filled with stretch experiences socially, intellectually, and emotionally. Some anticipated and others not so much. Life is certainly dynamic; I’m learning to be more assertive, choosing what I leave behind or carry forward.

Sunday Reflection Quote…There’s been an undercurrent of distraction the past few months. I’ve been in a hibernation halt. It’s Spring; time to shake it all off and feed new blooms.#sunday #reflection #quote #purpose #focus #goals #reset #health #distraction #priorities #time #patience #mindfulness #courageousconversations #myownstory #keeponkeepingon

Sunday Quote, 2/5/17


Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether related to career, golf, exercise, or relationships I’m learning consistency is absolutely essential. I’ll be all about it; determined and focused, but one little pothole followed by another will take me off course. Then I feel all downtrodden and out of sync wondering what’s missing. It’s consistency that’s missing. Routine sprinkled with intentional baby steps is key. Pushing the reset button once again!

Sunday Quote, 10/23/16


Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m one that loves competition and find mediocrity to be ho hum. However, not everything is a competition. Shocker! There’s peace accepting what is as it is; more importantly, accepting one as they are. Even with all the short comings, imperfections, and idiosyncrasies beauty can be found in a unique bloom.
