Who Am I?

Image

whoamiThe title of this article reminds me of the Jackie Chan movie. He suffered amnesia and didn’t know who he was. All the while he was getting chased by these people trying to hurt him. This article has nothing to do with amnesia or people trying to hurt you but its still really cool. How often have you posed the question, who am I, to yourself? If you’re like me then probably not enough. Continue reading

The Power of Now

Image

0x0_8705235A few weeks ago I was talking to a friend about a book she was reading.
Its called “The Power of Now”. It is a new age type book about living in
the present moment. That book has changed quite a few lives since the
release in 2010. I picked it up while it was on sale on Amazon and it is
well worth the read. One of the things that struck me was how it makes me
look at life a little different. Continue reading

Five Points to Healthy Eating

healthy eatingOne of the questions I get asked most is how did I lose all the weight? It seems that there is so much information out there and so many new diets to lose weight that the simple message of weight loss gets lost in the mountain of information. I wanted to spend some time to talk about the keys that I found to losing weight and keeping it off for good. Continue reading

Review of OGSF

Image

I have been working on myself quite a bit these last few years. Learning about social dynamics and how people interact with each other. It has been a long process of discovery and the answers I found are not what I expected.

I found this program on the Internet that is supposed to help with the feelings of guilt, shame and fear. I knew it was one that would benefit me greatly. It was at a party one night with some family of a friend that I was living with at the time that I discovered this hidden shame that I had felt for so long. I didn’t recognize it as shame or guilt or anything else. It was just something that I accepted as normal and figured most people had the same feelings. Continue reading

Somewhere in the Middle

I can’t believe April is already over. Where did my month go? I’m sitting down to finally write out this article that has been in the works all month. It seems that I have so much to say yet so little thought out. I debated if I would even write this article or pick something else more fluffy and light hearted. It would, however, not be what I wrote about in my about page. Continue reading

Big Move to the Big Apple

Image

It seems like I’ve been on the move for the last few years. I spend a year and a half in Albuquerque then another nine months in Winston-Salem. My time at both places taught me a lot about how different people live all over the country and really opened my eyes to how cool of a place we actually live! The experience that I lacked was really living in a big city. My next stop, New York City, would change that. Continue reading
