Sunday Reflection Quote…I do my best to stay in the present and give thanks for who and where I am in this thing called Life. However, cuz human, I teeter off the precipice into wanting or wishing. As a result, my happiness slowly diminishes. It’s a slippery slope to be reaching for what isn’t there, to be comparing with a non-comparable, or deny what is as it is. My life is rich in so many ways; I’m choosing to recognize and appreciate.

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m a banker. No, not that kind. When faced with challenges of the heart, I put on my tough cookie face and shove those emotions down for days. Problem is, they demand to be acknowledged and bubble back up. Flood gates unexpectedly open and even The Public Crier shows up. Yep, I’m a banker of a solid 15-30 emotional minutes. Once released though, I feel a ton better and get back to my gangsta self. It’s a thing; it’s my story.

Sunday Reflection Quote…This week brought heartfelt conversations, surprising news, and a priority reset. I’m reminded perspective is a choice; I choose red and yellow tulips.

Sunday Reflection Quote…The armor is strong, but there are cracks. To admit when I’m downtrodden or cranky, to share my fears, or to acknowledge my shortcomings is damn tough. At the same time, when I’m honest with myself and others tons of pressure is released. Being vulnerable isn’t easy, but builds strength. I’m becoming a matzo ball slinger and it’s quietly liberating!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Living in the past grieving what is no longer or living in the future anxious about what will become does NOT yield joy. Being present and seizing the moment is much more fulfilling. It’s okay to not have all the answers, to not know, to fail, to take a leap. Learning to simply enjoy the journey.

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 Reflection Quote…Hard to believe 43yrs have ticked by. I know now more than ever, it’s moments that matter. The moments filled with smiles laughter, and silliness; offset by worry, hurt, and tears. A comforting touch; a lingering gaze; a playful smirk; a thoughtful message; a blush of innocence; a secret revealed; or a new experience. Conversations from the heart; feeding the soul; moments of doubt; and moments of dreams. It is moments with friends and family I cherish above all. My circle may be small, but it is mighty. For this, I will continue to savor and be forever thankful.

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’ve knocking for a few years now. Sometimes it’s been slow, fast, rhythmic, or random. Sometimes it stopped only to return another day. Sometimes it was the wrong door. Nonetheless, joy has been inside all along, waiting to respond. My window is becoming more open; ready to see who’s there.

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last week was filled with connectivity, laughter, and assertions. I noticed being genuine and honest yields a sense of liberation; there’s less pressure and way more joy. Continuing to acknowledge the layers and enjoy the journey.

Sunday Quote, 01/08/17

Sunday Reflection Quote…Last week I caught myself overthinking and shifting my words or behavior to conform to what I ASSUMED others expected or were judging. What’s key is I noticed, then reset myself to just do my thing. Learning to play up my strengths, be aware of my quirks (cuz human) and just be me, as I am. Self-imposed pressure is a bunch of hooey!
