I can't believe we are at the middle of June and I haven't blogged since January! My perception was that I at least blogged a few times this year. So much for perception - must be the same problem with staying focused on nutrition & exercise & s... Read more

If you read yesterday's blog, I wrote that one of the roadblocks to a successful journey for me is getting pulled into the drama that can happen in my workplace. It's very difficult sometimes to sit quietly and not participate in those moments. ... Read more
Part 1 - My word of the year for 2016 is TIME. Last year I heard myself saying, "Where has the time gone? What time is it? Sorry, I'm running late but am on my way. How did it get to be that time?" Lost time. Lost track of time. Living in the pa... Read more

Time sure flies by faster day by day. I can't believe we are on the precipice of July 2015. I feel like I've lost months, though I know that my work consumes so much of my time that one day gets lost in another. I need to change that so it will ... Read more

If you had asked, I would have thought I only missed two days of blogging, not 5 days. Time does fly, I guess. Work sometimes gets into the way of life - though I shouldn't complain since, 1. I have a job, and 2., it is not as crazy as my fall ... Read more
