About Me

Thanks for checking in. We all know life can be EXTREMELY complicated. I blog about recognizing and removing the barriers that sabotage our living well. 

- Nobody had perfect parents, so we all have issues.
- We struggle to keep up with work, personal goals, staying healthy, and all kinds of relationships.
- Our minds are busy, and they seem to often work against us.
- At the end of many days, we're disappointed about what didn't get done, how we failed, what we should have done.

So I blog about increasing personal awareness and finding balance so we can cut ourselves some slack. Let's stay grounded as we move forward in manageable steps. Perspective is everything, and I try to see around the corners so we can leverage what we've already got into more of what we want.

Follow me and give me feedback. You inspire me, and I'll try to inspire you.

Enjoy Life While You Can

"People are forever expressing their loneliness, despair, frustration, and loss of hope. ... They are constantly finding reasons for their unhappiness in those around them and in their external environment." (Leo Busgalia)
I've been really busy lately, and when I'm busy, I can get impatient and snappy. However, busy means my life is bustling, and I'm healthy enough to have relationships and responsibilities. When I read this quote, it dawned on me that perspective is everything. I really can choose how I approach exercising in the morning, preparing dinner in the evening, and meeting deadlines throughout the day. I make dozens of decisions from the time I rise until I retire. Nobody and nothing sits in my brain, having my experience. If we lean on the tendency to criticize and complain, we'll never be content. Sometimes we don't know how good we have it until something worse happens. We must use our power to enjoy as many parts of our lives as we can, while we can.
