But the truth is, self-care is vital to our mental health and overall well-being. In order to truly be healthy overall, it’s not an option — it’s a necessity. If ...Continue Reading →
What is the Spiritual Side of Running?
It’s noticing the messages of spirit/god/or whatever you call your higher power. This may be an animal you see, tripping on a branch, or a sudden burst of insight. I believe these are not coincidences, but messages from God/The Universe.
What is “God/higher power/the universe”?
To me, God is ...Continue Reading →
You know the saying, “live a life you don’t need a vacation from”? Although I understood it, it never seemed attainable to me. I always thought to myself, “when I get the dream job” or “after the kids are older” or “if I just could ….”.
That is, until this past year.
I went on a 7 day Carribean cruise with my family and noticed a dramatic difference. I noticed a major shift this year. I wasn’t craving a week to relax because I already ...Continue Reading →
Have you ever watched the movie Cars? There is a part in the movie where Doc Hudson tells Lightning McQueen he must go left to go right. I always thought that was a genius lesson in the movie.

I have always been able to feel other emotions and feelings…I just was not always mindful of it. Growing up, when I got a denseness or uneasy feeling around someone, I used to think that person didn’t like me. Now I know I was just sensing their emotions on a deeper level.

Self-Care wasn’t always top of my list. It took time. It used to be, “self care” was exercising and checking a box. It had nothing to do with self-care and everything to do about “losing weight” and my “self image”.
I would often stress about fitting in my “self care” activity of exercising, which seems ironic. The very “self care” activity that was suppose to promote relaxation and destress me, was causing me stress trying to fit it in? ...Continue Reading →
