No matter what life throws at you, Decide to Shine!

Are you dealing with chronic illness? I hear you. I have been there myself. I still have issues that I'm dealing with, but thank goodness I have found some relief in remission for the past several years. But if I could go back and give myself something to latch onto and to hope for, I would tell myself the following:Hang on! No matter how hopeless and frustrating things may feel, please trust that things will get better. But don't just wait for that day. Do the best you can today, this hour, thi ...

Changing the Dialog Surrounding Technology's Effect on our Lives

On today's podcast, I talked about feeling grateful for the technology in our lives and how it's helped shape the world around us.

But as I was trying to think of something to post, I was having another one of those not very motivated days, just like I had yesterday. Do you ever feel like that? You're just like, "Ugh, I cannot get motivated!" and other times you're just rippin' and rearin' and ready to go?What I do when I get in that situation is I kind of force myself to do a little routine. For example, I will let m ...

Motivating yourself when you don't feel like it. :)

"Darkness reduces our ability to see clearly. It dims our vision of that which was at one time plain and clear. When we are in darkness, we are more likely to make poor choices because we cannot see dangers in our path. When we are in darkness, we are more likely to lose hope because we cannot see the peace and joy that await us if we just keep pressing forward." - D.F.
