  “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” Michael Jordan Houston, we have a problem! When is the last time you had to debate with yourself about going to lunch? O.K., I don't see too many hands raised. When is the last time you debated going to workout?

Throw Back Thursday

  Anyone on Facebook has seen all of the funny and crazy #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) photos that are posted. I recently joined the fun by posting a photo of myself that was from about 20 years ago. I had super big Texas hair. Many people got a kick out of the photo and commented on all the hair. The interesting thing is that I also got many comments on how I looked in that photo. Some said that my skin looks better now, 20 years later! And no, I haven’t had a brow or lid lift or any … [Read more...]

Vacation Mode

The Dive group at Deep Blue in Cozumel

Many of you know I recently went on a much anticipated and greatly appreciated vacation. I feel so blessed to have been able to get away for 6 days. Vacation mode for me is super relaxed. I allowed myself to put away all the things I’m working on at home and just be. I slept, ate, went scuba diving, took in the beautiful scenery, ate and slept some more. Did I mention that I slept? I might have slept a lot. It was wonderful! I especially loved being under water again and seeing that … [Read more...]

I … [Read more...]

Bonuses & Birthdays

Monet's Garden

Everyone has been so kind with messages for my birthday.  My "bonus birthday" as a cancer sister called it.  A term I have heard women use when they lived beyond the time frame thought possible due to their situation.   That wording might be a somber thought to some, but to me it is one that brings a sense of deep gratitude. It was in May, just about the date of my birthday in 2007 when I woke up and realized one breast was different. Everything about my life was changed from that … [Read more...]
