You are the creator of your world. You are the creator of your experience. You are the creator of your life. You are the creator of your profession. You are the creator of your day. So… When is the last time you thought about what you wanted to create? When is the last time you got up and decided on purpose what type of day you wanted to create?

What Did You Learn?

What did you learn over the last three months? About yourself? About your family? About your willingness to keep you and your family safe? What did you learn that you don’t want to forget?

Silver Linings

What are the silver linings you want to acknowledge and bring forth into the future? We have all been through a lot, but we have also grown in ways we never expected. When we look back at this pandemic, what will be the silver linings you want to remember? How do you want to remember how you got through this difficult time?

Who Do You Want to THANK?

If we have learned anything during this time, it is there are a lot of people we have taken for granted through the years. Maybe I am the only one, but there are a lot of people I WANT to thank. I WANT to thank my daughter’s teachers for having the patience to deal with a lovely 9-year-old who has a lot of questions and believes she has all the answers. The emergency responders, nurses, doctors, etc. who put their own

I know you have something you have been putting off because you have been waiting to see how long this crisis is going to last…you know that pandemic we have been dealing with. So, what is it?

Love is always the answer, but only always. When we are feeling sad, disconnected, depressed the first thing we should ask ourselves is, “How can we love?” Love ourselves, love others, love those we have never met, love…love…love.

The next time you are feeling down, blah, or just off…think of someone you

What Can You Create?

During this time of uncertainty, we need to focus on what we can control. For me, I have been spending a lot of time thinking about what I want to create, build, and bring alive during this time. I know that what I want to create brings me hope, anticipation, excitement, and in the end the feeling of accomplishment and control. So, what can you create? If you weren’t afraid of failure or being embarrassed what would you create? A book,

Life ISN’T a Straight Line

Life ISN’T a Straight Line You know this, I know this, yet we forget. During this crisis when have you wished your plan, your straight line for the month would have worked…continued on? How did it make you feel to think that? To wish there was a straight line and not fall forward into realizing it has now turned into a detour, zig zag…off road excursion? When we remind ourselves that Life ISN’T a Straight Line, we allow ourselves to take
