Doing Life Right Teleconference 2012

I am beyond excited about something right now! That something is the 1st annual Doing Life Right Teleconference. What is that??? In March of this year I had an epiphany. I’d been having a hard time of things, and I was struggling to be as positive as I wanted to be. I knew my outlook […]

One Month Left; Where are my presents? :)

When I was eighteen, I worked for the summer at a factory in Clarion, Iowa. I met a young man who was twenty-four. Throughout the summer, as I got to know this young man better, he confided in me and our fellow workers that he’d never seen the Mississippi River–the largest river in the United […]

You Have a Book Inside of You–VIDEO

When given the task of inspiring a group of people to go out into the world and do something, I immediately thought of writing. The written word has influenced me in so many ways. Plus, it goes on influencing people long after the author of those words is no longer living. With this in mind, […]

40 Birthday Presents for ME–Your Experiences

Have you ever wanted to try asparagus, paint your nails, or travel around the world? My 40th birthday is on October 28th, 2012, and I’m wanting to receive at least 40 presents. Not just any random 40 presents, but 40 specific things. I want at least 40 of my friends and family members to go […]

“No offense intended…”

I was recently sitting in a meeting where the person in charge began her statement with, “Not to offend anyone’s opinions, but…” and she went on to cruelly criticize anyone who had a differing opinion than herself. It just so happened that the whole room of people (except me) had the same opinion as her, […]

Build Your Own Path

Three years ago, my family and I wanted to make a path around our land — something raked free of cholla and other cacti — where we could roam free in sandals without worry of stepping on something we didn’t really want to step on.  We spent several hours every evening for a couple of […]

What do you want to be known for?

One hundred years from now when people are sitting around talking about you, what do you want them to be saying?  Do you want them to say, “He was a bit of a jerk from what I’ve been told and he knew how to drink a six pack of beer every day.” Or possibly, “He […]

Prove the Naysayers Wrong

I can’t count the number of times I’ve been told doom-and-gloom predictive things like: “Oh, just wait until she’s a teen, then you’ll be sorry.” “If you let your kids sleep in your bed, you’ll never get them out of it.” “You’ve got to force kids to learn to read, or they’ll never learn.” “You’ve […]

What Would You Do With That Information?

When I was pregnant with my oldest child, I spent a lot of time researching pregnancy, birth, and caring for a newborn.  We received a lot of pressure at that time to have a variety of prenatal tests done to me and to the unborn baby. Unsure of what tests to do and what ones […]

Stop Getting in Your Way!

What’s holding you back from fulfilling your dreams? Think for a second. Now think a little while longer. Coming up with excuses? Then, it’s probably you that is getting in your way. For me, I often find my own procrastination, worry of failure, and worry of exposing myself (and being made fun of or ridiculed […]
