My Messed Up Model Home

I love model homes! My husband and I used to pay to walk through model homes that were showing off the best of the best work, architects, builders, and designers to market their services.  It was so fun for me. I loved to watch HGTV and all the design and architecture shows. I took interior design classes in school and dreamed of creating my own model home one day. I still love them. I love that they’re clean and beautiful, and as Mary Poppins would say, they’re “practically perfect in every way”.   When I started my business several years ago, I began creating my website, my FB business page, business cards, and all the stuff.   And trut...

Single Greatest Year

“Make This New Year The Single Greatest Year Of Your Life!” I heard these words from one of my mentors today. Is that even possible? And if so...How? This year is 2018.  There has never been a 2018 before in the history of the world.  Even this moment, the very moment you are reading these words is unlike any other moment ever.   I have had great years before.  But the SINGLE GREATEST Year of my LIFE? I believe it is possible! I believe that every year, every month, week, day, and every single moment of my life is uniquely individual.  They aren’t in competition wi...

Fresh Clean Start

Every morning I choose to give myself a fresh start.  So before I do anything else, I go into my kitchen and fill 2 glass quart jars with fresh clean water.  Then I juice a fresh lemon, and pour the lemon juice, half into one quart jar and half into the other.  One quart is for me, and the other for my husband.  I drink the entire quart, then brush my teeth.  I allow the lemon water to do it’s job of cleaning me out...and I feel amazing!  I’m hydrated, cl...

Starting Fresh

In a past blog post, I spoke about starting with a clean slate or starting fresh.   This is one of my favorite things about a new year. New and clean just feel so good and happy...like Springtime. I used to believe that I had to wait for the new year, or a new day or new month to get a fresh start.  I would start things off just right, and then something would happen or I would do s...

2018 Is A New Year

2018 is a New Year. And today is fresh with no mistakes in it. Yet. It is always so exciting to start fresh. A clean slate. A new beginning. This is something most everyone thinks and feels and desires. We think of our goals, and we get excited. We think of our dreams, and feel hope. We think of our future, and believe in what is possible. I can do it! You can do it! I believe! Do you? If there is any part of you feeli...

Independence Day

Nearly 5 years ago, I made a choice that changed everything for me.  At the time, I was a mass of anxiety and stress.  I was sick and tired.  I was afraid and chronically on edge.   My life felt out of control.  My relationships felt unstable.  My whole world felt like a whirlwind nightmare.   And on that day, when every doubt, and fear, and worry threatened my sanity and even my very existence... I made a choice. I made a decision that caused a stilling hush to come over me and everything within me and around me.   I chose to be fr...
