Throwback: Press On and Push Past Your Comfort Zone

Recently, my brother and some friends participated in the Tough Mudder competition. This is a 10- to 12-mile obstacle course designed by the British Navy and described as “Possibly the toughest event on the planet.” (Take a look at these pictures to decide if you think it lives up to its claim!) The challengers sign a death waiver and endure some pretty dangerous and challenging obstacles. It is a gruesome and amazing event that brought the men back with big smiles on their faces.

When Your Past Enables You to Speak Loudly and Boldly…

We’ve made it to the second quarter. It’s time to discuss some real things and make some changes to ensure we get where we want to get. As we start, let’s jump into some reasons this month is so special to me. *Trigger warning*

When You’re Missing A Piece of the Puzzle…

In life we love to sometimes have all the answers. But sometimes we just need to go with the flow and take things for what they are. We need to just work with what we have, like we do with a puzzle, and keep going until we get to the end.

When It’s Time to Get Away…

At times you just need to step away from your life, breathe, and see it from the outside. Some reflections on stepping away.

These Things I Will Consider…

This week began with some tough revelation and has followed through with more challenge. A friend died today – not much older than me. I have been a bit of a mess today thinking about how the people left behind on this earth feel when we leave them. Something my friend left with me is…
