When You're Ready To Make A Change


What is the point?

I always have the hubby proofread my blogs. Sometimes he says, “It’s fine, but I don’t see the point.” Hmmm. The point of any good blog, at least from a life coach perspective (in my opinion) is to leave people thinking. Not wondering, “What the heck was that all about?”, but thinking – “What did […]

You have worth. You have value. You are loved!

Let me say it again… “You have worth. You have value. You are loved!” On the way home yesterday, I heard a song by Tenth Avenue North, “You are more.” They also have a powerful video! I suggest you watch it. Here is one verse… She says, “How did I get here? I’m not who […]

It went something like this… Kids: Can we get these? Mom: No, I think we’ll go across the street and get some chicken nuggets. Kids: But we want these, and they’re […]
