Why Justify Made Me Cry

I know some people may not understand why I am in tears seeing Justify win the Triple Crown....

Do you have any idea how AMAZING that is?!?! TWICE IN 40 years! 

I am an animal lover. I am especially a horse lover. I used to own one. I used to ride every day. I loved riding. It was such a passion of mine. 

I've been thinking about starting again. It's been in my mind since last summer when I took my granddaughter to her first riding lesson. 

I think it's time. No more just thinking! I'm going to call tomorrow and get started. 

If it makes you cry, DO IT, right? 
Thank you Justify, for reigniting a long idle passion.

This is What I Did on my Lunch Hour

aging health Jun 02, 2018

So excited about my new porch carpet!!!! And I'm impressed my husband picked it out!

THIS is what I did on my lunch hour today... Hot date at Lowe's! 

He realized the gray in the carpet's border would match our floor. But look how it brings the beige color in the cushions together with the gray in the floor. 

I would have never picked this one out because I'm not big on gray but once he pointed it out, I thought it was worth a shot. 

I'm ecstatic!!!! It couldn't be more perfect! I just want to sit and look at it...

When I Get Home I'm Always Like...

family Mar 08, 2018

When I get home, I’m always like.... why didn’t I take more pictures?!?! Do you do that too?

I guess it’s good that we focused on quality time together and stayed off social media for the most part... (not having internet did help!)

Except for a couple of silly videos you can find on my Facebook story!!! 

I did manage to catch a few great shots of the littlest man who made my weekend even better... Such a fun guy with the best disposition! Even though he kept me awake from 1:15-2:45am!!!!

This is the First Official Professional Interview I've ever done!

educational motivation Feb 20, 2018

This is the first official, professional interview I've ever done, and man, was it fun!!!!

I even stopped to smell the roses! 

I got to share what Marketing Impact Academy has done for me as an online entrepreneur over the past 12 months.

The last 3 days have been nothing short of incredible. Most of us were in tears as the conference closed because of the power of the message that Chalene Johnson shared with us...

"Things happen FOR us, not TO us."

And it is our responsibility - each of our's purpose - to help others figure out what we already have, through our experiences. That is how we can best serve.

And THAT is what I intend to devote myself to doing!!!

My House is Officially Back to its Non-Christmas Self!

laughter Feb 13, 2018

My house is officially back to its non-Christmas self!!!  I finally got my Christmas village put away!

As I was packing it up, I got to thinking about my beautiful buffet table and how it's one of my favorite pieces of furniture. And how I almost lost it....

You see, after my divorce I had to have an estate sale and put almost everything I owned up for sale. I tried to sell this but no one would pay the dirt cheap price I was offering for it...

So I kept it!

And when I look at it, I always think: you were meant to be with me, to see me through bad times and good.

And I smile. 

Isn't it funny how things have a way of working out?

I'm so thankful it's still here. If it wasn't, I don't know where I'd put my Christmas village!

You Know I Like to Read Because....

motivation Feb 02, 2018

You know I like to read because I'm always posting stuff that inspires me from my books. Well THIS is a good one!!!

It was actually an exploration of sorts... Read and then do an exercise. And it made me think...

I had to pick 1 reason out of 5 as to WHY I started coaching. My 5 choices were:

Time
Money
Security
Health
Purpose

BEFORE I did the exercise, I thought my reason was Health... I mean, I lost almost 20 pounds and got in the best shape of my life at age 55!!!

But as I really began to think about WHY and remembered back to when I started, my Health is not why I started coaching.... It is why I signed up to be in a online challenge group but it is NOT why I began coaching.

I also tell people I started coaching because I got a great discount, but again, that is the reason I signed up to coach but it is not why I STARTED to coach. I had no intention of coaching when I signed up.

But a short 2 weeks after I signed up for the discount, a light bulb went off in my head!!!

Anyone Who Has Chronic Pain Needs to Read This Book...

aging health Feb 01, 2018

Anyone who has chronic pain needs to read this book... And I'm only on page 1!!!

"Pain and other chronic symptoms are physical manifestations of unresolved internal conflict. Symptoms surface as an instinctual mechanism for self survival.

They are messages from the inner self wanting to be heard, but ego takes center stage in heights the truth within the shadows of the unconscious mind: which is the body. One purpose of these physical symptoms is to keep the individual focused on his physical body, and away from the surfacing emotions.

This is referred to as Tension Myoneural syndrome, TMS, which includes acute and chronic nerve pain as well as muscular pain and a wide variety of other symptoms.

T = Tension, the result of anger buried in the body
M = Myoneural, muscles and nerves 
S = Syndrome, a collection of symptoms

TMS is the cause of the current pandemic of back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, migraine, hip pain, knee pain, wrist and hand pain, carpal tunnel pain, mouth...
