My desire, is that you might glean something from this blog that will enhance your life. The blog expands somewhat on my personal journey, it can be generic with many people, it has the ability to increase your productivity, creativity, work-life balance, happiness, love, friends and most of all greater peace with one’s self.

On this blog you are invited to take a journey, not with me, but a journey with yourself. This can be exciting and revealing. It will require honesty and forgiveness, that is not the norm when dealing with yourself, but it is imperative to do so, to receive the benefits you are looking for.

The tag line challenges you to be your own life coach, that is not a fancy statement to catch your attention. It is about you and only you. Myself, or no one else has the answer to a fuller life for you, but you do.

My writings have not been gleaned from academia, but rather my life experiences. It is a journey I have taken. The hills I climbed, the valley’s I experienced, the storms, the calms, all part of this exciting journey called life. Every experience, good and bad, had a purpose that helped or guided me to what I call a sweet spot in my life. The same can be for you, but no one can experience it for you, just as no one could experience my journey for me.

This blog is journalistic in nature, it is a picture of the experiences that have shaped me over the course of my lifetime. It is a transparent look at myself and how it has been dealt with and what the outcome has been. My hope is that it may help you, because in the end it is strictly about YOU.

  1. This is Emily. We met at the swimming pool this morning and had a very good conversation about your journey which inspired you to share your thoughts with others on your blog.
    I made sure to remember your blog site because I feel I am just beginning my own journey into building a strong sense of self , finding peace within myself, and the courage to follow my own heart.
    Our conversation this morning got me thinking because you were able to verbalize things that I feel I’m just starting to realize I’m my own life.
    I look forward to reading more of your posts.


    1. Hi Emily, I’m just back on my blog, sorry I never got to answer before. Thank you for your comments. Stay on your journey it can and is exciting. My last blog posted yesterday helps to explain where I’m coming from and hopefully can be some help to you. But YOU are your own best friend, this is about getting to know who you really are.
