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 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 Quote, 02/07/2021

Sunday Reflection Quote…I’m coming off a couple weeks of reflecting back and looking ahead cuz birthdays will do that (My recent 47th and my dad’s 75th today along with a close friend). In addition, energy has been spent deflecting negativity, wordsmithing a piece of writing, and maintaining healthy boundaries. Disequilibrium of the mind or heart is incredibly uncomfortable. However, once rebalanced, the value of the stretch is priceless. I’m reminded to just sit with it. Sit with being uncomfortable. Sit with being upset. Sit with being vulnerable. I’m also reminded to embrace confidence, to be assertive, and to stay in my lane. One must dare to take the leap; daring is living.

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, 6/7/2020

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.

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on a Monday almost Tuesday; what day is it anyway?)…The last few weeks have been a challenge for a variety of reasons cuz life, human, and unanticipated triggers. I’m reminded holding it all in and shoving it deep down inside doesn’t work. It isn’t reasonable. It isn’t healthy. It isn’t sustainable. I’m immensely grateful for the unwavering support and unconditional love from my man, Memphis. He gets it and gets me; nudging me to get it out and reset. There’s no shame in being emotional or vulnerable. I’m realizing I’m stronger for it. Here’s to knowing where I’m headed and refocusing!

Sunday Quote, 02/23/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote…Whether the past is an hour ago or decades, second thoughts only begets guilt or regret. Whether observing others in a superficial or competitive light, comparison only begets inferiority or envy. I’m reminded neither living in the past, nor observing others is conducive to creating value. Here’s to honoring gifts of the present and fostering happiness.

Sunday Quote, 02/17/2020

Sunday Reflection Quote (Yes, on Monday)…This week I had a case of the repeats. It is a thang. A case of overthinking. A case of caring, of worrying, and of feeling guilty about weight that isn’t mine to carry. I’m reminded everything isn’t equally important and I can’t be all things to all people. Shocker. I can only be me; doing the best I can with what I have. Here’s to putting a stopgap on shoulding on myself, to feeling “bad,” and to worrying. I’m pressing the reset button once again!
