“The positive feelings you create help you to become more resilient towards stress.”

The state government has totally reopened Alabama all while new coronavirus cases are on the rise. Several other states have reopened and lifted the stay at home orders in an attempt to re-establish their economies. I think the reopening is too soon, and it is evident in the number of cases that are reported daily. Just as the cases are incr...

“Remembering your why and the reason you started in the first place can guide you and give you the encouragement you need.”

My life was taking me in a direction that I did not sign up for. The business deal my husband and I had been working on fell through. My car needed major work done, and everything that could break down or malfunction did. And if that wasn’t enough, I was dealing with me. I was in a very uncomfortable pl...

“We put ourselves in a box and insert an “or” where there could be an “and”.”

I had a conversation with my doctor, and I was giving her my spill on how much I had sacrificed to be a good mother to my kids. She too had challenges while pursuing her career as a doctor being a mother, but she didn’t consider herself making sacrifices. Instead, she said she made choices. Those words have stuck with me ever since. She chose to t...

“You want to move through transition like you are going somewhere and you plan to get there.”

Change has never been as profound as it has been since the world abruptly stopped. In this season, we are all experiencing things we’ve never imagined in our lifetime. Smiles are hidden by masks.  Warm greetings are replaced by cautious and apprehensive head nods.  The silence of small talk in the grocery store on the bread isle is so...

When you have a positive mindset, you’ll attract more positive experiences in your life.

The way we speak to ourselves can be the determining factor in whether we are victorious or we are defeated. Growing up my grandmother used to always tell me life and death were in my tongue. I really didn’t realize the power in that saying until I became an adult and experienced life.

Words are powerful and if you don’t realize how...

“In order for you to show up fully and engaged to work, as a teacher, a parent, and a spouse, you have to have adequate sleep and rest.”

With all the challenges we have faced since this quarantine, the one thing that is really been trying is teleworking and homeschooling. The teleworking is not the problem. I actually enjoy working from home. It is the integration of them. It is the task of trying to work with two kids const...

To trust the process means to believe despite what you see or experience that there is a divine plan moving through you and your life at any given time.

Nowadays, we all have some degree of fear whether you admit it or not. Many of you are scared crazy of the coronavirus.  Many folks are experiencing uncertain times now.  You are out of work and don’t know when/if your job will call you back. You are a non-essential business ...

“Spending time laughing and enjoying each other is a recipe for longevity.”

During this “stay-at-home” order, many couples have been forced to spend more time with their spouse or significant other. For some, this time together has been a great experience, but for others, it’s been a nightmare.

My husband and I have seen more of each of other in the past couple of weeks than we have in our 9 years of marriage. It’s defini...

“Confessions are good for the soul.”

I have to confess. This week has been challenging for me. I had my first guest on the show, and I intended to share that episode this week. But, I’ve struggled with getting the episode ready for publication. So that I didn’t leave you hanging, I decided to do a recap of my very first episode, EP 1 – Why Aren’t You Moving Forward, during the launch of the podcast back on Christmas Eve day ...

“You can choose to spend your days sitting around scared and anxious, or you can choose to have productive days.”

It’s been a very interesting couple of weeks and a big adjustment for my family. However, it hasn’t been too bad.  Being confined to my home with my husband and kids reminds me of when I was growing up as a kid.  

My family and I spent a lot of time together.  I grew up in a rural town called Beauregard in Lee Co...

“Like a double-minded man, fear can be unreliable and dishonest.” The coronavirus crisis is a whole mess y’all.  It has caused such a disruption in our daily lives.  Tissue and bread are a scarcity.  I mean entire shelves of food and toiletries in supermarkets are empty and remain empty for days.

“Appreciate where you are, but always reach for where you are going.” Contentment and complacency are two words often confused and misused. There is a fundamental difference between the two. Being content means you accept the reality of your situation without complaining or resenting it.  When you are content, you work to change the things [...]

“You are afraid to be great.” As a coach, I’ve worked with so many people who struggle with being comfortable with themselves. It’s so easy for others to see how great and wonderful they are, but it’s difficult for them to see through those same lenses.  These people often stay in the background and hide [...]

“How brave is it to be authentically you!” Being the best version of yourself isn’t as simple as you might want to think. We play different roles and therefore, have many different layers to self.

“How you respond to No can change the trajectory of your life be it positive or negative.” We’ve all had an experience, be it in business, on a job, or in life in general of being told No.  Whether we admit it or not, no one likes to be told No.  It can be disheartening [...]
