Fitn

Wow it has been two months since I have put my thoughts down! I received this beautiful card and sentiment from a dear friend today which motivated me to write! Two months ago, I was enjoying 8 months of “fun employment” and focused on studying for a group fitness certification as a path to get … Continue reading

Who Am I?

I started practicing meditation last year and was intrigued when I learned some soul questions: Who am I? What do I want? How can I help?  How can I serve?  What is my dharma? The soul question that got me thinking was “Who am I”?  It resonated with me thinking back to when my dad … Continue reading

Recap

Over the past week I have been looking through my 2012 Facebook timeline.  I used to scrapbook and love looking back at memories so am thankful for the online social media outlets that help me recollect what has happened over the past year.  My husband and I had a goal this year to try and … Continue reading

Creative Juices Flow’n

Starting this blog has been a great way to get my creative juices flowing…speaking of juices check out the “Juicing” topic on the Vegan Fuel page. I get teased from family, friends and colleagues about how on top of things I am.  I got to thinking on Friday night maybe I could apply my multitasking, … Continue reading

Life is a Ride

Friday was my last day of a 3 month contract assignment so I didn’t sleep well last night as my mind must be spinning a little as I readjust to upcoming time off.  Despite being financially prepared my ingrained Midwest work ethic must be feeling a little unsure of not being employed.  Over the years … Continue reading
