Today is a great day! I am at home, finally enjoying some rest and relaxation after an insanely busy week. Yesterday’s event was a huge success, and I feel like breathing a giant sigh of relief—relief that it went well, relief that it was well attended (by nearly 400 people), and relief that it is … Continue reading I Didn’t Just Survive… I Grew!

‘Break A Leg!’
Today is the day of my big event, and the question at this point is always “am I ready?” In some ways the answer is always no. There is always something more I could have done. There is always a carnival game I could have tweaked to make better, something more visually appealing I could … Continue reading ‘Break A Leg!’
Looking Forward to Today
I’m looking forward to today. I think it’s good for me to say that, because a part of me would rather say, “I’m dreading today.” Today is the last day to finalize any details and wrap up any lose ends before the big event tomorrow, and tonight is the dress rehearsal for the Family Experience … Continue reading Looking Forward to Today
Faith: Is it the Secret Sauce of Life?
"Faith is the ‘eternal elixir’ which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of thought!" -Napoleon Hill I came across this quote this morning, and couldn’t help but stop and ponder it for a while.

Every Moment has Meaning
It’s been a long and exhausting week. And because I’m tired of writing about being tired, I’ll give you a quick update on my sleep situation today and then tomorrow I’ll move on! After three nights of laying awake for hours on end when I should have been sleeping, and seeing my productivity and ability … Continue reading Every Moment has Meaning
“I will find my glory in knowing the Lord. Let those who are hurting hear me and be joyful.” – Psalm 34:2 (NIrV) I read this verse last night as I was winding down before bed. I was sitting next to the living room window with the lights out and a candle beside me, soaking up … Continue reading Candlelight Musings
Tired, but Trying!
Sleep. Sleeeeeeeeeep. I need it and I want it so badly! My sleep has been suffering for quite some time now, and I am assuming this is due in large part to my anxiety. If you read yesterday’s post, you will know that I didn’t have a very good sleep two nights ago. I woke … Continue reading Tired, but Trying!
This Morning I am Grateful
This morning I am grateful. This might not be the response you would expect from someone who woke up around 4:30 and hasn’t been able to sleep since. And it wasn’t my initial response either. Initially, my response was annoyance and frustration. I know how important sleep is for mental health, and I am quite … Continue reading This Morning I am Grateful
