Take A Chance Tuesday – Let Go

Letting go can be one of the hardest things to do, but the most rewarding.

When you let go of something that doesn’t align with who you are and what you stand for, you clear the space for something that DOES align with you and who you are.

And there is NOTHING more beautiful than that.

It’s okay… let go. Something better, something brighter awaits.


Wednesday Wisdom – Be The Brightness

There is no ignoring that the world contains a lot of negativity – I ain’t about pretending the world is sunshine and roses, sorry. It has a dark side.

But it has a bright side! It has bright lights, souls set out to lift one another. Be the brightness. Let’s tip the scales back into the favor of positivity, love, empowerment and acceptance.

Be the brightness.

Sunday Shakeology – Cherry Limeade

Happy Sunday! Dog days of August, huh? Very summery here, great for a hot day where you want some tart, yet refreshing flavor.

I love cherries – the darker, the juicier!

Cherry Limeade

Wanna try it? See why I stick with this product 2.5 years later – more energy, better control of my Diabetes, keeps me from stuffing my face with candy, and helps keep any anxiety at bay, just to name a few reasons why Shakeology is a daily part of my life.

I certainly don’t miss the Kara that was fast asleep on the couch by 8pm – having energy to participate in life is NICE!


Christmas Eve

It’s still a magical time, though it was a little more magical as a child (you know, by child I mean someone who has no responsibilities and doesn’t get caught up in the hustle and bustle of holidays!)

We’re going out to eat for dinner tonight with family, and then just hanging in, enjoying our first Christmas Eve as a married couple, and our last in this house (we are moving in January!)

Saw this poem once and I really liked it. I actually can’t wait to have children to share it (and many, many other things!) with!

What do you do for Christmas Eve? We usually do dinner and then hit some friends houses, but everyone is scattering this year!
