Go Find Your Place

Quick: Think of a place where you have visited or lived in that gives you the feels…

You know the place I’m talking about. That place that makes you feel at peace. At home. The place that your mind goes when you think about your “happy place.” Your go-to vacation spot. Your getaway.

How many times have you been there? Once? A hundred times? Maybe you live there. Maybe it’s a place so familiar you can close your eyes and you are instantly transported there.

Or maybe it’s just a place you saw in a travel magazine, and you knew that was YOUR place, and you knew that someday you would get there. Someday. Continue reading “Go Find Your Place”

Remember Reminder #16: There Are Many Ways to Say ‘I Love You’


#rememberreminder: There Are Many Ways to Say ‘I Love You’

Becoming an adult and then a parent have really taken those worrying skills up a notch: I worry about money, my career, making ends meet, being able to provide for me and my daughter, Zoey… I worry about my friends, my family, my loved ones… I worry about my future and my happiness… I worry about Zoey’s happiness, her future, her… well, everything.

#rememberreminder: Slow Down

Our days keep passing us by:

Days filled with
new projects,
new demands,
new obligations.

We have to be
in a million
places at once.

We race
from place to place,
sit in mind-numbing traffic,
fall asleep
exhausted & empty.

But there
used to be a time
when everything
didn’t move this fast: Continue reading “Remember Reminder #8: Slow Down”
