Sunday Reflection Quote…It is said good things come for those who wait. On the contrary, I believe good things and happiness comes from what you make. There are times when fear needs to be put in check to take the leap into the joy of the moment. I’m happier and more at peace now than I’ve been in a very, very long time. Intentionality for change is no easy feat, but it is certainly sweet!

Sunday Reflection Quote…My life has been full of many changes the last few weeks and it has been liberating building the new! I’m now living with my boyfriend, have changed schools/grade level/content, have a new administrator and colleagues, and have made shifts for healthier choices. Once I opened my mind and heart to the new, my perspective and intentions have changed. I genuinely feel more positive, motivated, and content than I’ve been in a very long time. Life can be incredibly challenging, but when energy for the new is the focus, positivity opens up and moments are that much sweeter. I’m grateful!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Pokerz has been at the forefront the last couple days and my dad’s voice has been in my head “play your own game.” I’m realizing this is true in many facets in life, not only poker. There’s relationships, career, competition, goals, and choices in general to navigate. Nowadays we’re inundated with input, checklists, and comparisons.

Being myself and making healthy choices for my head and heart has brought me more happiness and contentment than I’ve had in a very long time.

Sometimes life throws a massive curve ball and it takes a long time to recover. With awareness and determination, we can find our way to master “our own game.” I’m grateful for the peace in my heart and adventures ahead!

Sunday Reflection Quote… This week I caught myself comparing and rationalizing. All of which is a bunch of hooey chipping away at my self-confidence and steady progress. We all have our own story; our own essence. I don’t need to apologize for who I am, nor my journey. Here’s to giving myself permission to simply be and lead with unapologetic confidence.

Sunday Quote, 7/15/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…Perspective and acknowledgement are powerful traits. This week at the poker tables, gym, bowling alley, various conversations, and baseball game interactions provided multiple “tests.” Each setting represented a slice of the whole; all walks of life weaving together. Giving a nod to differences of opinion, background, and experience while checking a smidgen of self righteousness opened the door to patience and tolerance. As I get older, I notice it’s important to maintain individuality and intentionality while being mindful of differing mindsets.

Sunday Quote, 7/8/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week was a doozy punctuating what really matters. For me it’s love, laughter, acceptance, gratitude, respect, and health. Thankfully, time continues to heal me; shifting my perspective and priorities. I look forward to continuing to grow and walking through the open doors ahead.

Sunday Quote, 5/20/18

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday cuz reasons)…The past week revealed patience is key. The patience to wait for unknown answers, to ride the waves of anxiety, and to sit with repeated annoyance. Most importantly, patience for oneself. Time on the other hand, time is of the essence. Taking the time to heal, to forgive, to accept, to forget, to look ahead, to pause, to celebrate, and to love. We each have the power to set our own clock, whether slow or fast; seeking the just right pace. Now I see it’s my time to move forward and accept the gifts before me. The time is now.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Shrinkage happens. No, not that kind! The kind where you’re unsettled or passive, shrinking from situations. I’m reminded there’s no need to morph, I can simply be myself. I can speak up, share my strengths, be vulnerable, and do my thing. I’m choosing to rebuke self doubt and stand my sacred ground without apology.

Sunday Quote, 5/6/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…Although competitive, I’m reminded not everything is a competition. I’m also reminded it is not reasonable to please nor be accepted by everyone. Being the best version of myself in a given moment, pursuing what makes me happy, and saying no thank you is acceptable and healthy. Here’s to being who I am as I am, because I’m good enough.

Sunday Quote, 4/22/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week was a doozy. Anxiety had momentum that kept gaining speed. I’m reminded doing the best I can with what I have is enough. Reaching too far into the future with “what ifs” that may never be is unproductive. Resetting to have confidence in my essence, stay in the present, and keep my chin up.
