Drive By

How many times have you driven to a destination, arrive safely, park your car, open the car door, and proceed with the next matter at hand – taking care of your business. This is common – pretty much a natural occurrence. Is it natural to not notice the nature around us – even while driving? The trees, the clouds, the beautiful landscape surround us, but do we realize the privilege we have to enjoy it?

Stop to smell the roses? We’re too busy to smell the roses! We’ve got to make that meeting before we’re late. We’re thinking about the appointment before we get there We’re replaying a conversation in our head we had last week. We’re – – – texting. Oh No! Whatever we’re doing, it’s robbing us from observing the the trees, the clouds, or simply the air and the weather (unless it’s raining then we’re complaining). Talk about a deadly drive by!! SLOW DOWN and enjoy the drive – connect with nature! Life goes by fast enough all on it’s own.

Stepping Out!

Are you in a place of stagnation in your life? Ready to try something new? Thinking about relocating or maybe trying a new career or craft? How about love? Ready to step out and try love again instead of being fearful about the WHAT IFs? Ready to travel? What’s stopping you? Fear of judgment from friends and family? Can’t find the courage to take the first step? Tired of making excuses? As you continue to wait on your SELF to make a move, time is passing by. You know what? You’re not alone. Countless women live with regrets about ideas they wanted to pursue or changes they wanted to make in life only to remain in their comfort zone. Being a faithful wife and loving mother is safe, but there is so much more to you than those titles. You’ve given your family ALL of you. It’s okay to make yourself a priority. It’s time to love yourself as you’ve loved so many others.

This year will be over soon and another year of your life will be gone. Go ahead, take the plunge. Go for it! Why not? If not now, when?
