Why Do We Hate Great?

So, last night I watched my team, the New England Patriots, win a bid to the Super Bowl. It wasn’t their easiest run…and the game went into overtime. Most people hate the Patriots. They’ll call them cheaters. They’ll come up with a multitude of reasons. Most of the time I roll my eyes, but lastContinue reading “Why Do We Hate Great?”

Falling Back into Old Habits

So, last week was one helluva a week. Energetically, I let my week run me instead of me running my week. I allowed myself to be tossed to and fro by my emotions, by my insecurities, and by my Jesus complex. There are so many things that I want to accomplish–so many goals that IContinue reading “Falling Back into Old Habits”

Be true to who you are

In this moment, I’m sitting here in my workout clothes, too late to workout this morning…so I have to workout this evening. I’m mildly annoyed with myself, but if I’m fully honest, I set myself up for this. You see…I have been going through the motions as of late. I haven’t been fully showing upContinue reading “Be true to who you are”

Recalculating…Recalculating

Some days I am as focused as a laser beam. Other days I’m like the glitter that you find all over your house weeks after the holidays have passed. What changes from week to week, day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute? My mindset. I am fully in control of how I allowContinue reading “Recalculating…Recalculating”

2018 was one of the most interesting years that I have ever lived. I thought that 2017 would’ve held that title…but alas, I was wrong. Let’s take a look at 2018. Well, I did a lot of traveling. I got to know and love Miami. I got to NYC a few times. Oddly, I didn’tContinue reading “Ending 2018 Strong”

Breaking the fear of success

Back in January/February, I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend in NYC. It was awesome. But…when I found out the address of the hotel, I felt so unworthy. As I was walking there, I passed over all of the fancy streets that you hear about in every movie about high-end NY. Park Avenue.Continue reading “Breaking the fear of success”

Triggers

Growing up, I always identified as smart. Ok…if I’m honest, that’s what I still identify with. Why? Well, it started with the voices that I allowed to shape my identity. For me, fun always equated with stupid (yes, super judgmental, I know) so I always prefer to be intense over fun. Something else that I’veContinue reading “Triggers”

Writing is my release. It is the way that I work through what’s raging in my head, in my life in a way that is productive instead of falling prey to self-destruction. It is something I do for ME. It is the way that I get my story out to the world in an understandableContinue reading

A lesson about sharks

There are people in the world who are truly zealous for your success. They will feed into your life in a way that is meaningful, as you do into theirs. Then there are people who act like they want you to be successful because they have something to gain…an ego boost for themselves. Both peopleContinue reading “A lesson about sharks”
