The Moment

by on Mar.12, 2011, under Uncategorized

It is all about the moment!

When I went out this morning for my run it was cold! Only 18 degrees above zero and the wind was fierce! I almost turned back and yet I thought no..keep going. Today was all about the mental game. What was so remarkable is that it was one of the best runs I have had. I used the wind as a tool and focused on the things I have learned and just ran. Don’t you think that life is like that? We are hit with decisions each day to take the high road or to just be in the middle. Just think if I would have turned back because of the cold and the wind. I would have missed out on one of the best runs I have had. This run today was more than just about running, it was about life, making choices, and being thankful. Life is like the wind, hitting at you in different ways, how do you react to it all?

I am on week 6 of my training for my half. Last week i tweaked my hamstring over striding, so I was careful to take it easy and slow, land on my feet evenly and RELAX!

Blessing to you fellow runners out there. Be good to you and love the moment!

How Long Lord!

I am singing at a small country church this weekend. The folks there want me to share parts of my story and sing the songs I wrote back in the 90′s when I was going through a tough time. Abuse is a topic that is not talked about, so being sensitive yet honest with my audience will be very important to me. I am in a very good place now and yet, I remember those days when I would lock myself in our walk in closet and sing and pour out my heart to my God! I felt so alone, disappointed and betrayed by the man I called my father. He was my hero and yet he was a monster. Forgiveness and letting go has been a gift that I have given myself. Did it happen right away? No, but over time I was able to let go, and walk away and be free. Free to be me and the beautiful woman that I am. Free to love others and confident in myself to share with them my pain, hurt and parts of my story. All of us have a story. We are all here for a purpose and the gift of giving yourself away is there, an open door.

Being Thankful!

by on May.21, 2010, under Uncategorized

Isn’t it great to know that the only one in this world that you can control is you. Your thoughts and actions are yours alone. Yes life happens to all of us, and with it comes hurt and disappointment, but you can change the course of your thoughts. Imagine waking up each morning and the first word that comes out of your mouth is the word “thankful”. Think of at least one thing you are thankful for, try it and your list will grow and your world from the inside out will change. Breathe in the fresh new air, stretch free of those pains of yesterday.

Today is a new day for you! What are you thankful for?

May the blessings of life circle around you today! God is so good, you are in His Favor…just imagine what can happen when you are thankful!

About Me

by on Jun.06, 2009, under Uncategorized

Hi and welcome!

I wanted to tell you a little bit about me. So here goes.

My present profession is a Human Resources Administrator for a large transportation company. A better title would be Awards Specialist, where I plan and organize events, banquets, and all employee recognition events. I also manage five clothing stores located in all of our various terminals.

My desire to blog began on a whim, I am a compulsive walker and I wondered if there were any other people out there that could relate to me.

My passions are my family, living a healthy lifestyle, exercise, fitness, nutrition, singing, and travel. I was a stay at home mom when my two children were young. At the time, my husband and I owned and operated a True Value Hardware Store, and this gave me lots of flexibility to take the kids to work with me or spend the day at the park. (continue reading…)
