Shifting To Yes

Can you believe we're less than five days from Christmas, and eleven days until a new year? 2015 is coming to an end quickly, and I’m so excited for 2016. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a shift smile.

The best word that I can use to describe 2015 is “challenging”. I could go on and on about the things I’ve encountered this year, but I don’t want to bore you. Plus, I’ve learned that I didn’t corner the market on tough times. Unfortunately, there’s enough for everyone, and a lot of people have been where I am. So, I’m ready to put the “challenging” moments behind me, and move into 2016 in a new frame of mind.

A mind geared towards abundance and “YES”. Remember, I mentioned that I’m “More Than A Caregiver”; well this is a part of my master plan to claim the future I want.

More Than A Caregiver

Have you ever said, “I’m more than this?” If so, than you and I are probably “spirit animals” that are feeling like what we’re doing isn’t working anymore. I’ve been feeling like this for a while about several different areas of my life, and I’m tired of it.

I’m so tired, that instead of trying to figure out an escape route. I’m ready to change the game, and use “more than” to create a movement. Can you feel it? Ok, maybe not yet. But, let me explain it this way.

When I say, “I’m more than a caregiver.” That typically is coming at a time when my frustration level is at a ten. You know those moments when you’re coming home from a hard day at the office, and everyone is looking at you to make dinner. Plus, they need you to fix a light bulb, do laundry, and make them feel better at the same time.

Giving Back Is Just Like Graduating

It’s that time of the year where many of us are celebrating the graduation of our loved ones. Graduation is a life altering moment that truly deserves to be savored and enjoyed.

This year my sister graduated from college, and watching her walk across that stage was one of the happiest moments of my life. My sister really struggled to earn her degree due to her disability. It may have taken her longer than the norm. But, she made it. She never gave up, and truly values the gift of education.

There are many people in the world that would give up everything they had to go to school. Especially, the people who struggle to get an education because of the poverty they face on a daily basis. Poverty is a worldwide problem that is truly impacting lives on all levels.

Still Standing in My Truth

350 days later in my quest to be a better person, daughter, and caregiver.

It's amazing what you can accomplish in 350 days. When I wrote this post last year, I was reeling from an argument with my mom. I was sick and tired of being "sick and tired." I wanted to be a better daughter, person, and caregiver; so I made the decision to begin standing in my "brokenness". 

350 days later, and I'm still "broken". But, I'm definitely in recovery. I'm so blessed to have the opportunity to deal with myself. There are so many of us operating on "functional brokenness", and it's holding us back from living our best lives. I hope this post encourages you to take that step, and stand in your truth. This is a "no judgement" zone, and i'll be happy to support you on the journey. So, let me know your thoughts. We're in this together smile

Are You Still On Course With Your Vision?

It's time for a vision board "gut check"!

Can you believe it’s March 2nd? Wow, we’re three months into the year. So, I wanted to circle back and do a quick “gut check” to see how everyone is progressing with their plans for 2015. I know it feels like time is flying, But, a quick “gut check” will help us get back in line or help you get started. It’s never too late to live your best life now. 

I know I took you along my journey to “live my best life now” at the end of last year. I had to take some time to really put what I wanted to accomplish in 2015 into perspective. As caregivers, I find it’s easy to get distracted. Heck, our lives feel like one big “distraction” “_. We’re pulled in so many directions caring for our loved ones and trying to manage jobs/family that it can feel like you’re in one continuous cycle of crazy.

But, that’s our lives, and we have to accept where we are at the moment in order to move where we want to be in the future. So, that’s where the vision boards come in. This is our opportunity to think about all of the things we want to accomplish for ourselves, and give them life through pictures.
