Life is made up of hills, valleys, and plateaus. I’m here to share some of my successes and failures so that someone else’s journey maybe a little easier.
I haven’t published a blog in a month now. I pride myself with my ability to be consistent, and I have consistently written for a year and a half now. This summer, I took a week off so I could be with my family, and I had no intentions of taking any more writing breaks.Continue reading “I’m back!”
Why Do They Go Together? I was supposed to write this yesterday. Actually, I was supposed to write it last week and publish it yesterday, but I could not think of what I actually wanted to share this week. After giving it some thought, I figured that I could share what has been taking upContinue reading “Running & Fundraising”
I’m not a yogi. I’m a 46-year-old endurance runner who doesn’t even enjoy post-run stretching, but because I am a 46-year-old-runner, I knew that I probably really needed this retreat. Backstory Coronavirus hit our little island, and everything shut down. Some people went into hibernation. Some people expanded their offerings. I did a lot ofContinue reading “Yoga Retreat on Okinawa”
In June, I decided that I needed a little social media break. Some people take breaks because they see too much negativity on the platforms, but that wasn’t why I needed a break. I needed a break from social media like other people need breaks from binge-watching Netflix or because they watch too much tv.Continue reading “No Social Media July”
Let’s chat about Events. If you read my last blog, you know that I have been responsible for planning and executing road races for a non-profit, and I am currently on a team who is responsible for setting up a leadership seminar for military spouses who live on Okinawa. This blog isn’t for experienced eventContinue reading “Event Planning – Part 2 – The Basics”
I would be remiss if I didn’t admit that I missed last Monday’s post. It was the first Monday in 63 weeks that I missed publishing something. Part of me is a little embarrassed. The other part recognizes that I should have planned better and created a post in advance. The rest of me isn’tContinue reading “Event Planning: Part 1 – The Background”
It’s Monday morning, July 5, 2021, and one of the first things I did this morning was go back to read the blog I published about the 4th of July from last year. It was a recap of the fun we had with friends. I shared a little about my brother’s accident, and I alsoContinue reading “4th of July Reflections”
I am the kind of person that likes to set myself up for success, and in order to be successful, I need a plan. I am often envious of those who are able to “fly-by-the-seats-of-their-pants”. Knowing that I am not one of those people, planning is key for me. If you read my blog lastContinue reading “No Social Success”
When people talk about taking a break from social media, it’s usually because of something negative. For example, I know people who didn’t log into social media platforms during the election. The hate and discontent was just too much. I also know a lot of people who have given up Facebook for Lent – theContinue reading “Social Media Hiatus”
I didn’t read the book for my leadership book club, and I showed up unapologetically to discuss it. Actually, I mostly just listened to the discussion because the other readers had intriguing and interesting insights. For the first time EVER, I felt like I could still show up even though I hadn’t even attempted toContinue reading “Books, Books, Books”
