Sunday Quote, 8/5/18

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…Change lives on a continuum and this weekend tipped the scale in the most positive direction. In my book, sharing one’s life with another under the same roof is a big change; a big deal. The heart, mind, and spirit are vulnerable blending lives to build one together. I’m excited to start our next chapter; immensely grateful for our new beginnings! @mns_traveler

Sunday Quote, 7/22/18

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 Reflection Quote, 7/1/18

Sunday Reflection Quote…Staying in the present can be challenging. Last week I caught myself teetering on the precipice of the past and future. Rather than focusing on the moment; I became anxious and downtrodden. I’m reminded living is in the now. Here’s to a reset, being present, and marinating in happiness.

Sunday Quote, 5/28/18

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, I know it’s Monday)…We all have our story. The good, the bad, and the not so savory. Granted, not all the laundry needs to be hung out, but I’m learning it’s healthy to share and simply acknowledge. There’s healing in the telling; even if it is uncomfortable, causes a lump in the throat, or mist in the eyes. Giving voice creates ownership; ownership is strength.

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 Quote, 5/13/18

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.
