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.

Hope

The sun rises each morning.
Ready or not
light and rays
stretch out.

A warm blanket of
Hope
comforting those ready
to receive.

Hope is there
waiting on the porch
to be welcomed in.

Hope sees opportunity.

Knock, knock!
Are you in there?

Don’t you dare leave me
on the porch-

Wait,
Wait,
Waiting
To be invited in.

The inviting is surrender.

Don’t let fear
be a gatekeeper
Don’t let fear
block the door.

Don’t you see?
Hope is right on the other side.

Choose to open the door.

Let her in.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether on a micro or macro level I’m reminded mindset is key. The onslaught of negativity and entitlement can be a powerful magnet; required to be repeatedly rebuked. Over the years I’ve worked incredibly hard to reset my mind, heart, and body. I refuse succumb to temporary pitfall pulls. I’m reminded choosing to be reflective, positive, and strong is my wellness path. Here’s to adding without apology and staying in my lane.

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 Reflection Quote…The week was a memory coupler of nostalgia and new. Familiar stories and sights affirmed my roots and planted seeds for the future. I’m reminded looking back can yield a continuum of understanding. It’s natural to give a nod or marinate for a spell. However, the true gift of living is in harvesting the now. Here’s to waving goodbye to another year; another decade. I’m eager to live my life forward while savoring the sweetness of unconditional love and support.

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 Reflection Quote…This week I was reminded life really is about lessons, acceptance, and gratitude. Life is too short to carry the weight of disappointments due to expectations or anxious anticipation for what may never happen. Here’s to maintaining the balance of wise mind and doing my best to stay in the present.
