I Am Whatever You Say I Am

Learning to handle a situation like a grown-up can be challenging. Invariably fighting to not have the last word is a struggle for many people, including me. If I feel like I’m being attacked with your thoughts of me, then I automatically feel the need to protect myself and explain.

The explanation usually consists of me telling you why you shouldn’t feel the way you feel about me. Truth be told, I’m guilty of wanting to be liked. Read More

The Worst Trainer Ever

I fear that I’m becoming the worst trainer ever!

I find myself sitting more than I stand. Of course, I have a good reason for it, but the fact remains that I am sitting on my rump more and more each day.

I wake up at 6:40 a.m and see my teens off to school. By 8:00, everyone is gone, and I’m in my room looking at all my emails and text messages. I reply one by one and make a few calls. Read More

Woman In The Mirror

The only person that you should compare yourself to is you. There isn’t anyone in this world that is like you.

We are all on a #different path.

We are all starting from a different point in our #life. Read More

You Can’t Rescue The Boy In The Man “Part 1”

All I remember is it being deathly silent on the phone. I thought she had fallen asleep. So there I lay on the couch under the covers in a slightly dark room with only the light sound of the t.v. going. By this time it was 2 o’clock in the morning, and we started our conversation at 11:00 pm. I’m not quite sure how long it was since we last talked but we had a lot to catch up on. Our conversation went from politics to food, health, fitness, raising kids, marriage, and reminiscing about our old selves. Read More

Why Coming From a Broken Home May B​e Better Than Living In One “Part 2″​

Sometimes you have to take a step back and reflect over the things you desired to change as a child and make a conscious decision to not let history repeat itself.
