Welcome to episode 18 of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I expand on an aspect of last week's episode and share some thoughts about some of the different transitions and changes we may experience as we go through life. From schools to sports to jobs to hobbies, we experience so many transitions. And it's these shifts and changes that allow us to grow and develop into the people we were meant to be with the lives we w...

 Welcome to episode 17 of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I encourage embracing the changing seasons of life. Not everything is meant to last forever. Some things are just seasonal, and resisting those seasons of change could be delaying your transition to bigger and better things. Don't hold yourself back from your bright future or from getting everything that is meant for you. Embrace the seasons of change. 

I hope you ...

Welcome to episode 16 of The Creative Joyride. 

In this episode, I expand on an idea that I brought up in last week’s episode, Breathe. The idea that It’s totally ok to give your body and your mind the rest that they need, even when it may feel like it’s not. Let’s not push ourselves to the point of exhaustion. Rest when you know you need it.

I hope you enjoy the episode. Let us know your thoughts!

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 15 of The Creative Joyride!

In this week’s episode, I just offer a little reminder. A reminder to breathe. It’s easy to get caught up in the swing of things and become stressed or overwhelmed. Especially now, as we're transitioning back to in-person education and working on site. But in those times, it’s important that we stop to breathe and take a moment of pause to re-center ourselves.

I hope ...

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 14 of The Creative Joyride!

In this week's episode, I talk about an idea that I was introduced to through speeches and interviews on Youtube. The idea that there will come a time when we need to stop asking for permission to step into our greatness and instead give notice that we are going to.

Looking for outside approval will only allow us to get so far. We need to look within and take it upo...

Hello everyone, welcome to episode 13 of The Creative Joyride!

In this episode, I offer a bit of encouragement. Encouragement to just be you. We can often feel pressure to only present part of ourselves to the world because of the potential for rejection or being perceived in a negative light. But we are all uniquely made with gifts and talents that only we can share.

Don't allow others to influence how you decide to show up in...

Welcome to episode 12 of The Creative Joyride! In this episode, I hone in on why repetition just might actually be key. And not in the catchy pop song sense, but in the language learning sense. My 11th-grade French teacher used to describe the way she was teaching us with the phrase "puke, regurgitate, vomit".

With so many different ways to say the same thing and different ways to accomplish the same goal, it may take some ...

Welcome to episode 11 of The Creative Joyride! This episode is the product of starting out with one idea in mind, but following the train of thought to a completely different destination. I start by sharing a concept that was introduced to me through YouTube videos and transition to the value in getting to know yourself, understanding who you are, and how you want to be seen.

Your self-perception can influence how you present yours...

Welcome to episode 10 of The Creative Joyride! I can't believe we're already 10 episodes in. Thank you so much to everyone that has been listening and supporting the show. It's been an interesting road and steep learning curve, but a fun time.

In this episode, I share my thoughts on the quote “If your dreams don't scare you, they're too small”. I'm a believer that word choice matters. Changing just one word ...

Welcome to episode nine of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I share my thoughts on the question "What are you in it for?". When reflecting on my life and goals, I always tend to come back to this question. It reminds me of when I was in college preparing to become an RA. In this episode, I share that story and ultimately how I've come to answer this question when it arises.

Let us know your thoughts and approach to...

Welcome to episode eight of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I share a phrase that I’ve started saying a lot recently. It stemmed from my time working at UPS but ultimately leans into a message from the last episode of choosing an optimistic outlook. When things weren’t looking so great at UPS, my supervisor would chime in with a hopeful “It’s fine”. This phrase has become a daily reminder that at the end of the day, when it’...

Welcome to episode six of The Creative Joyride! In this episode, I share some thoughts on reaching or realizing one’s potential. It seems like most of us tend to put limits on what we are able to do or achieve before we ever actually give them a try. And going in that order then stops us from pursuing them all together. I offer the idea that to reach one’s potential you need to push yourself past those perceived limits. You are cap...

Hello Everyone! Welcome to episode five of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I share some thoughts on the idea that your life is your own. Living through the lens of trying to pleasing other people or trying to meet the expectations of others is very common. And it's often done without even realizing it. I share the importance of shifting from living for other people to living for yourself and how it will be helpful in max...

Hello Everyone! Welcome to episode four of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I share some thoughts about dreams and the importance of not putting limits on them. We often let our current circumstances dictate what we can and can't hope for. I offer the idea that we shouldn't be putting price tags on our dreams and encourage you to dream without restriction. Let me know some of your thoughts on this idea.

Hello Everyone! Welcome to episode three of The Creative Joyride. In this episode, I share thoughts on the importance of being kind to ourselves. With so much external pressure to be perfect and have it all together, we can fall into the habit of putting ourselves down and not treating ourselves as well as we deserve to be.
