Who was in your life?
Were you happy then?
Were you living life the way you wanted to?
Were you faced with making a difficult decision?

There are a few people who I admire for their character and
style as they progress on their journeys, and whose blogs I follow
regularly. They inspire me to become a
better version of myself, to have more confidence in myself, and to trust my
I believe our lives are a journey, and the goal is to always
grow and develop, to become more, each day.
Part of that journey is knowing
who we are, knowing ourselves.
But back to the people whose posts I enjoy reading.
When they share something personal about their journey, a
glimpse into their lives (not just teaching or sharing what they know), it
helps me to understand better, and to relate better.
I see the learning in action.
So I thought I’d share a bit of my personal journey with you,
in the hopes that maybe you’ll relate or maybe be inspired.

A while back I was at a meeting and the conversation around the
table was about how we handle ourselves in times of stress.
I remember a few people saying that they wished they could
handle some situations better than they do, and that they were constantly
trying to be better at it. And a few
people spoke of how they have learned over time the best ways that work for
I spoke about how I have this picture in my head of who I am
and what I’m like, but the me in reality is often quite different. I want to react in a certain way (calm,
mature, fair), but often that’s not the way it happens. But I strive to be like the person I am in my

Do you have a mental picture of who you are, and what your
personality is, that is perhaps a little, if not quite a bit, different than
who you are in reality?
I think it’s something we all do, and likely without even realizing
So, I have a soul-searching, deep assignment for you.

We’ve all heard over and over how, if we practice gratitude
on a daily basis, our lives will change. But it’s not always easy to do when
you’re in a crappy place and can’t see beyond the struggles!
Regardless of where you’re at in life, when things just don’t
seem to be working out the way you want them to, and there seems to be struggle
after struggle, it’s hard to feel grateful.
But it can be done.
And it honestly can change your life.
Because it changes your mindset. Your thinking.
And when that changes, your life changes.
Honestly! I can’t stress that enough!
If you don’t believe me, then try what I’m about to share

patterns will change your life.

February is often the month when people lose their
motivation when it comes to making those changes they wanted to make, when the
hype of the holidays, the new year and new beginnings, and vacation days in the
sunny south (if you live in the freezing cold north like I do!!) seem like a
What changes did you want to make?
How are they coming along?
This post is in no way meant to guilt you if you’re not on
track with your goals, but rather to let you know that if you’re slipping on
them or if they’ve fizzled out, it’s completely normal – and it’s possible to
get back on track!

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it
At first this seems like a very simple question. But if you’re like me, before long you’re
going to be beating yourself up because there are SO MANY things you want to
It’s always a lot easier to think negatively – about ourselves,
our lives, or our situations.
But let’s tackle this question positively and with the
purpose of changing just one thing, without letting negativity taking over
Let’s get started!
