Sunday Reflection Quote… Now more than ever, we are divided rather than united. Every single facet of life is polarized, debated, and argued. I see the ugliness, hatred, and violence. It is exhausting and disheartening. I’m reminded the power of voice and story helps to understand. I’m reminded I can make a difference in my own space, in my own way. I’m also reminded I have one life and I decide how I choose to live it. Here’s to holding hope for my loved ones. Here’s to holding hope for our country. Here’s to holding hope for the future of humanity.

Enough

Elbows-
on the table
glow of the screen
socks kicked off
at the ready.

Here I hunker-
there you hunker
down
keeping
the in in
the out out.

Even when-
upset
uncertain
scared

We
are still here
gravitating to
the same place
the same space.

In this moment –
I can’t promise
anything
neither can you
nor they.

Things-
everything
shifting
changing
evolving.

Yet-
in this moment
as I belly up
to the table
socks near
my feet

Elbows-
on the table
ink dancing
on the page

It is enough.

In this moment-
I am enough
doing enough
so are you
so are they.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Life, longevity, and legacy have been lingering on my palate. I’m realizing more and more how short life truly is. One’s just peachy “normal” can be broadsided leaving a trail of disbelief or devastation. I’m reminded to savor the moment, to buy the ticket, and to speak up when necessary. Here’s to making it count; making memories.

Sunday Quote, 9/8/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…My over thinking mind and anxiety belly catapulted into overdrive this week. The core of who I am as an educator and essence of my being was questioned and challenged not once, but thrice. Sometimes difficult situations barge through the door, but it doesn’t mean it has to take up residency in my heart and mind. Here’s to having confidence in my abilities and the resolve to remain strong. Let it go and chin up!

Sunday Quote, 8/4/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Success perches on a continuum. For some it means getting out of bed, keeping an addiction at bay, or putting food on the table. For others it is a big job title, the bottom line, or square footage. For me, success is simply health and happiness peppered with fond memories and stretch experiences. I’m more successful now than I’ve been in years. Maintaining balance and boundaries has been key. I no longer feel compelled to give the over used 110%. For who? For what? Some days 75-100% is simply good enough! Here’s to celebrating the small efforts; efforts consistently repeated yielding the juiciest fruit.

Sunday Quote, 7/28/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Coming off a week of connections, memories, and experiences I’m reminded simplicity is key. After playing a golf course surrounded by million dollar homes or spending the weekend at a casino resort, it is easy to get caught up in materialism and comparisons. I’m reminded what’s projected on the outside doesn’t necessarily mirror what’s on the inside. For me, a foundation of simplicity is a great stabilizer. Here’s to creating my own contentment by choosing to pepper life with quality experiences and maintaining a focus of simplicity.

Sunday Quote, 7/21/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Shifts require awareness. After giving the nod, it then takes courage to act. Based on my own standards, in order to be happy I have intentionally pushed through perceived expectations and assumptions. At times I have felt vulnerable and raw. At times I have felt like I’ve been voted off the island. At times I have felt confused and defeated. Nonetheless, through prioritizing, reflection, baby steps, and multiple resets I have created my own happiness. Here’s to continuing to shift my weight. #sunday #reflection #quote #tomstoppard #happiness #health #wellness #contentment #equilibrium #shift #priorities #letgo #forgiveness #determination #grit #goals #society #expectations #assumptions #mindfulness #myownstory #keeponkeepingon

Sunday Quote, 6/30/19

Sunday Reflection Quote…Although I’ve improved quite a bit the last few years, I still have a propensity to be very hard on myself. This is good in that there’s motivation punctuated with focus and determination. However, there’s also immense internal pressure and self-doubt. I’m reminded who I am and what I’ve accomplished is simply good enough. Here’s to continuing to taking care of myself, so that I can enjoy my journey.
