Lifestyle

I believe in helping others. I believe in being happy. I believe in having and achieving goals and dreams. I believe in be successful in whatever way you define success. I believe in realizing your true potential and being the best you that you can be. And, I believe in living the good life.

The good life is so much more simple than most people think it is. It’s also so much easier to find and live than you probably think it is. Through sharing multiple series of blogs and vlogs on a variety of topics, I hope to show you what the good life really is and how you can find and live your own version of it.

Trust me, I’ve been there. Saying no to people can be really hard for some people. It’s especially hard for us people pleasers and over-achievers. Yes, I admit that...

Elements for Taking Care of Yourself You Time   “You” time, does anyone even know what that is these days? Our lives have become so busy and chaotic that it seems few people have the luxury to know what that is anymore. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. So what is this foreign concept?

Smile

Essentials for Everyday Life Smile Sources say it can take as little as 13 muscles to form a smile. It’s an easy and natural thing to do, so natural that we oftentimes do so involuntarily and sometimes no matter how hard we try not to, we just can’t keep ourselves from smiling. That’s how powerful those few muscles are and how powerful a smile is. Smiling isn’t just physically powerful. It’s actually even more emotionally powerful. We all have bad days. We all feel sad or stressed out at times. One thing that can make you feel better and get...

In a way, we have become selfish. We’re always looking...

Essentials for Everyday Life Taking Chances  “Chances only come along once in a lifetime. Dreams they just come true every once in a while.” Tonic Sol-fa One of my favorite songs of all-time is “Chances” by the nationally-known, Minnesota-based acapella group Tonic Sol-fa. In full disclosure, I had the privilege of working with them for awhile at a former job and not only are they incredibly talented, but they are truly great guys (and absolute goofballs). That’s not why I like the song, though. I like it because the lyrics are so true. You...
