Kindness

The other week my daughter brought home a project from preschool about kindness. They have a bucket in class that they are trying to fill up with kind deeds. Every time they do a kind deed they put a slip of paper in the bucket. Such a wonderful exercise, but I noticed all of these deeds were kindness for others, what about self kindness? We are taught from childhood on to be kind to others, be kind to animals, and be kind to everyone but ourselves. Most of the time when we are judgmental and cruel it is a self...

Why Are We So Hard On Ourselves!?!

I can be pretty brutal to myself sometimes, ok a lot of times. It's funny how we can hold so much compassion for others, but not for ourselves. I am very self motivated and driven, maybe to much at times. I am working on slowly down and enjoying what I have accomplished already, instead of focusing on all the things I have fallen short on so far.

Every single one of us has our limits, our breaking points. I found this jar analogy to be liberating. Each one of us has the choice to put on our no vacancy sign. You don't...

Those of you who know me or read my blog know I try to find inspiration everywhere. We all see the quotes on social media daily and I am sure we all have different feelings about them. From time to time I come across one that hits home for me.  "Nothing incredible was ever achieved by playing it safe," by Jonathan Silver Scott. We all know "unsafe play" can end up being a lot of fun, it can also end in disaster. But if you want something bigger or something special you have to take those risks. If you are...

Do You Remember?

Do you remember that young adult you once were? The one that was filled with dreams, the one who thought the world could become a better place, and that you could help change it. Before life knocked you down, made you bitter, cynical, always looking out for the worse case scenario instead of the best. Visit that younger person you were and try to be more like them. When I was fresh out of high school I made this crafty little journal with all different colored pages. In it I use to write down quotes I came across that I...
