Re-framing Things + My Audible Library

For the last 4.5 years, I have commuted 1 hour each way to work (5 days a week). I have a love-hate relationship with my work commute… As an introvert* personality type, I love the alone time. As someone with limited free time, I hate the extra 2 hours it steals from my day. Looking…

Truth Time

Truth time… I have noticed myself allowing complaining to creep into my life more and more lately. This is obviously not a good thing. Although I know it isn’t serving me and is is a habit that is damaging both to myself and to others, I have been uncertain how to break the cycle. I…

Lessons From Coins

  I have some some questions I’d like you to ponder:   When it comes to (what you consider to be) “imperfections” and “mistakes,” how do you view yourself? Do you allow (what you see as) “flaws” to define you? To limit you? How do you view the purpose and the outcome(s) of things when…

Doing something a little different for this Kaci’s Currents and sharing some things that impacted me from around the web this past month! Not sure what is going on? I know it has been a while since my last Kaci’s Currents post. Let me catch you up to speed! Kaci’s Currents are mini recap posts…

Life Questions {Q&A}

I was recently given the honor of participating in a project for a friend and coworker. He sent me a list of questions that several individuals will also be answering. They took me some time to complete as I wanted to answer them honestly and thoroughly. I’m an over-analyzer—in case this isn’t already obvious! Anyway, after…

I honestly didn’t think that the thoughts I added to the photo caption would have such an impact, and was surprised by the number of people who read, liked, and commented. Sometimes I wonder how may…
