Be your own cheerleader…

After almost two weeks back at work under my belt, I found myself feeling eager to share some thoughts. It feels SO good to be back at work. Sometimes I feel guilty saying that because I really cherished and enjoyed every second I had home when I was laid off from my previous position. I…

Pumping Ain’t Easy

I was chatting with one of my very best friends this morning, bright and early as she is returning back to work soon from maternity leave.  She’s a truly amazing mama, it has been an honor watching her become a mama.  I knew it was a job she would succeed in and was born to…

My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Happy International Women’s Day…Feel GOOD Friday!

What a great day to be a woman! I love the idea of having an international women’s day. After all, none of us would be here if it weren’t for a strong woman that carried us in her belly for 40 weeks! I still get amazed by reading that number. 40 weeks is a long…

Today is ELECTION day…get off your butt and get to the POLLS!

If that’s not exciting for you, then you should probably stop reading…

This election has made such a strange impact on my life.  It has made me reflect on my core beliefs and identify who I am and what is truly important to me as a person and more importantly–what characteristics I believe a leader of this country should possess.  I’m not going to say who I…

Back in Action…Weekend Recap

The past few weeks, I can honestly say, my blog has not been what I envisioned it to be.  As I mentioned, last week–my job is going through some changes that I am hoping will continue in a positive fashion.  I am hoping to get back on track with my blog and my life, in…

Feel GOOD Friday…Work/Life Balance

So the truth is yesterday I just didn’t feel like blogging.  It was the first day since I started blogging, where I was just completely in a funk.  I guess that happens, and any good blogger pushes through, and posts, but I just decided to stay quiet for the day. Anyways, I stole this article…

Feel GOOD Friday…8 Things to Remember…

This week has been exhausting and trying for me in a variety of capacities.  I have been forced to reflect on a lot of things in my life with an effort to move forward regardless of circumstance.  I reached out to one of my best friends, Rachel, the other day just to catch her up…
