Life is a series of choices – our choices. We are responsible for how we respond to what happens to us in life. Everyday we’re faced with a series of choices that mold who we are: choices with food, exercise, relationships, career. Sometimes, though, we’re faced with difficulties in life.
I’ve experienced many proud parent moments in my life. As parents we are our kids first teachers and (hopefully) the voice in their heads as they grow. I was so touched to have come across this beautiful display of positive thinking in my daughter’s room, that I wanted to share it with you.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? Are you able to see clearly the beauty that stands before you or is the view a distorted reflection?

When good things are happening in life, these events are reminders that there is a yin and yang to life’s rhythm.
Life is busy and we come and go racing to the next meeting, class, school event, or kid’s activity. Over time, this “drop and go lifestyle” can result in clutter in our homes and offices and lead to added stress in our lives.

We celebrated Father’s Day this year with an early morning, family bike ride to our favorite breakfast place across town. As the cool morning breeze kissed my face and the sun warmed my skin, I watched as my beautiful family pedaled ahead of me and I reflected on just how fast time was flying by.
We are beautiful creatures with minds capable of amazing things. However, sometimes our minds take a vacation and veer off on a trail that’s not always so pleasant. For me, those are the days I feel like I’m crawling out of my own skin or when I find myself facing new or old fears.
