Sunday Reflection Quote…I didn’t know until I knew. There’s love and there’s a whole other level of unconditional love. The latter is selfless; yet, quietly powerful. To be unconditionally accepted through all the nuances of the good, bad, and ugly is a gift. When it is received, there’s an undercurrent of strength that slowly builds over time. That current harnesses a power, which releases courage. I’m reminded there’s nothing more beautiful and vulnerable than the willingness to share one’s life with another. Here’s to a life of strength AND courage as @mns_accountant as I begin our journey as husband and wife!

Sunday Quote, 02/22/2021

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on a Monday)…Life’s journey is certainly unpredictable with all the ups and downs, twists and turns. Interestingly, the words warrior and fighter have been sprinkled across recent readings, movies, and conversations. At the same time, adjectives such as intimidating, confident, focused, stubborn, and determined have graced my ears. This has been couched in my past decisions and recent achievements. In reality, I would contend it is the patience I’ve had with myself to continually work hard, fail, learn, and grow. In reality, it’s the gift of time—weeks, months, and years shaping who I am today. The intentionality to be patient and give myself time to create a space to reset, to be happy, and to love has been the most powerful. I’m reminded to keep my chin up and to keep my eye on the prize. Here’s to savoring the sweetness of affirmation!

Sunday Reflection Quote…Just 17 days into 2021 and the absorb/discard muscles have been flexing hard. I can sense “add” will be my challenge to bring to the forefront and sprinkle in. I’m reminded it takes a mindset of intentionality to deflect the energy suckers and power on. Here’s to having the courage and confidence to “add” and hold strong.

Sunday Reflection Quote…Even when stressed, exhausted, or defeated I’m reminded to simply keep showing up. Show up despite failure. Show up despite fear. Show up despite shame. I’m reminded distance and time is a gift allowing Grace to work her magic to reset. Here’s to showing up again and again!

Sunday Quote, 11/01/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks revealed a peaceful thread of simplicity can be woven on the daily. Contentment can be etched by minimizing time zappers, rebuking negative interactions, and clearing the physical/mental clutter. I’m reminded wealth extends beyond the bank account. Despite all the ugliness and absurd push/pull in the world, here’s to staying the course creating a life of simplicity, intentionality, and contentment.

Sunday Quote, 8/2/220

Sunday Reflection Quote…The last couple weeks have been quite the personal and professional ride. There’s been an undercurrent of push vs. pull and I’ve hunkered down to stand my ground. I’m reminded life is short and I have only one; choose wisely. I’m reminded I can’t be all things to all people; be kind to yourself. I’m reminded there’s value in being assertive, asking questions, and not chasing. Here’s to staying in my lane, staying in the moment, and having an attitude of gratitude. Here’s to knowing expectations for myself or others can be a slippery slope. Here’s to knowing I have the fortitude to see it all through.

Sunday Quote, 7/19/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…It’s been a doozy week riding the teary morning lows of distance learning/teaching woes, the highs of shooting an 81, all rounded out by shouting from the treetops we’re engaged glee. I’m reminded life is a continuum unexpectedly twisting and turning. Sometimes it’s a full on pucker white knuckle death grip and other times it’s freely waving hands in the air like you just don’t care. Sometimes it’s broadsided trauma or pain with zero Iight in sight. Sometimes it’s shame or fear paralyzing the next move. But, BUT with hope, determination, and willingness better things DO and CAN fall together. Here’s to falling FORWARD in love, in marriage, in friendship, in family, in teaching, in golf, in health and wellness. Here’s to better things!

Sunday Quote, 7/12/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…I often say “stay in your lane,” not for others to mind their business, rather for my own preservation. It’s a mantra to mentally and emotionally remain focused. There’s so much divisiveness; the push-pull factors can be overpowering. With all the negativity and ugliness I can become anxious, downtrodden, or disheartened. I’m reminded I have one life; one path. I’m the one who determines what’s necessary to support my values, goals, and lifestyle. I don’t have to defend my decisions. Here’s to staying in my lane. Here’s to simplicity and contentment; the defining bumpers of my journey.

Sunday Quote, 6/14/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…Since March 13th, the word “flexibility” has been stamped in bold, block letters across my forehead. Whether personal or professional, the changes have rapidly rolled across my path at an hourly, daily, or weekly rate. My anxious belly and early morning overthinking ceiling staring brain have become front runners. There’s an uninvited new normal. I am tired, overwhelmed, and disheartened. Nonetheless, this week I was reminded goals are essential. Even in the midst of turmoil and heartache, my personal path is of value. I don’t have to explain away. I don’t have to back up the back up. I can just be. I can grind and do my thing. It is good enough. Why? Because I am stubborn, yet flexible. Because I carry with me my family legacy of “Don’t tell me, I’m the teller.” There is balance in loose and tight. There is value in go slow to go fast. Here’s to my personal and professional goals. Here’s to my predefined methods; they are good enough. As am I.
