I’m coming out!

First….HAPPY NEW YEAR! I wanted to make sure I get that out quickly since time is running out to say it without it being overkill. (I’m probably too late)……So, can I just tell you how stoked I am about this year!!! I wish you could see my face right now, its gushing with wrinkles from the JOY that I’ve had lately….Nothing major happened (YET), but I must say if you combine the mini moments, it becomes major moments and in this year in particular, every moment matters. Period. I didn’t make any New Year Resolutions, I’m not jumping on the “New Year, New Me ” bandwagon and  I didn’t intentionally cut folks off. This year, I simply want to CONTINUE….I want to continue being healthy, wealthy and finishing goals that were already set in the previous years. Last year, was definitely a year of Grace for me. I gave way too much focus on the wrong people and things. This year it’s more focus on the right people and the right things. Timing is everything! I believe 2017 will be some of the greatest days of our lives. There will be many days that our minds will be blown by

I failed at FIRST!

I was coming from grabbing my daily cup of coffee from WaWa and was headed into work. Some thoughts came to my mind and I started asking myself some questions: HOW DO YOU ENVISION YOUR SECOND HALF OF LIFE? What do you want it to look like? Who do you want to spend it with? What will you be doing? Where will you be going? Some of my best thinking and time of pondering is while driving in my car. SECOND HALF, ahhhh….that’s it! Suddenly, I started receiving direction to where my focus and intentions need to be. Using what I have experienced & learned in my first half of life for a better, more worthwhile second half. When you know better, you do better. In this world, the word SECOND is not something someone wants to admit to. We don’t admire second. We don’t strive for second.  Everyone wants to be first, the only one, the main thing, the winner, etc….but the reality is that we are ALL familiar with SECOND. We’ve had our share of seconds, right? You know, second chances, second place, second best, being the second choice and now for me and maybe you too…..SECOND HALF.

Bon Voyage!

Season’s Greetings!!! Yup, it’s that time of year again…and today for some reason, I’m feeling rather “chipper”. I have my Christmas Music playing in the background [Mariah Carey’s -Holiday station on Pandora is fantastic!] and I’m smiling really hard while drinking hot cocoa as I’m typing this…well, that’s a bit of exaggeration but you get the picture, right? I’m in a good mood. Sooo……how was your Thanksgiving Holiday? Mine was great after I had to change my plans. Let me explain…..The night before Thanksgiving my 11 year old daughter who is a planner extraordinaire, asked me what our Thanksgiving plans were. My response was short and sweet…..”Church and hopefully back home to do nothing, just like I did last year”. (I had already been daydreaming about me laying on my couch, in my comfy pj’s, fuzzy socks in front on the TV, with a large cup of coffee)…..Her response to me was….”You’re such a loner AND you choose to be that way”…..Geesh! God bless these grown doggone children!! Argh! I wanted to give her my sermon on how I’m quite comfortable in my own skin and that my personality type thrives off of being “alone”….but something told me not to go
