As a parent, it is easy to get caught up in taking care of everyone else.  As many of you know, it’s hard to take care of others if we are not in good health.  This week, we are going to focus on taking care of ourselves.   This is going to obviously be different for all of us.  A great place to start is what do I need to do to take better care of myself?  Is it rest, exercise, 20 minute of me time (hiding in the bathroom doesn’t count), a date?  Figure it out and go for it.   [ Read More ]

Have you ever been faced with a challenge that you simply could not find a solution?  Perhaps, the conventional mindset was prohibiting you from success.  Finally, you decide to think outside the box a little and to your surprise a solution was found.  We have all been there.  It seems as we mature in life it is easy to forget to be creative. This week, my encouragement for all of us is to look outside the box a little and make life more interesting.  Try changing it up, flipping things upside down (figuratively of course) and see what happens.  This  [ Read More ]

I remember my first grueling experience with holding my legs six inches off the ground in soccer practice.  All of our legs were shaking like scared chihuahuas.  It was about that time that I started my Tang Soo Do training.  My first class involved the same exercise with the added bonus of a Black Belt stepping on our stomachs. Fast forward a year later. Our soccer coach had us do the same grueling six inch exercise.  Instead of my legs shaking, they were steady and I was rather comfortable in the position.  Due to my consistent training in Tang Soo  [ Read More ]

Start Small –  [ Read More ]

This morning, I was listening to a podcast regarding giving.  In a nutshell, the speaker relayed that his research found that money doesn’t buy happiness.  Most of us understand this concept.  However, he found that by giving to others an individual could find a great deal of joy and satisfaction.  Again, most of understand this basic idea of giving is better than receiving.  My encouragement for all of us this week is to focus and practice on giving.   Start with the simple ways of giving – from our heart.  It could be that smile or kind word that’s extended to  [ Read More ]
