Thankful, grateful and blessed …

For quite a few years now I have participated in the 30 Days of Thanksgiving Challenge on Facebook. Every day for the month of November you post one thing you are thankful for. When I first started this challenge I could never have imagine how it would effect me. It has honestly become a gift. I absolutely love participating in it. I like to believe that I acknowledge and appreciate my blessings every day, but really putting them out there and owning them for everyone to see is quite a life altering experience. At least it has been for me. Anyway, today was the last day of the challenge and it’s just an incredible reminder of how life doesn’t have to be perfect to still be pretty darn good.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you feel thankful, grateful and blessed!!!

Love and gratitude …

I’m feeling incredibly grateful for the good people in my life. Along with these souls I am thankful that many of us are being blessed with some incredible opportunities and experiences that really speak to our hearts. How awesome is that?!?! It feels wonderful to see the people who mean the world to me be so happy and it’s delightful to get to celebrate right along with them. It certainly fills my heart with all the best feels!

Well, I hope you have a day where your heart is filled with love and gratitude!!!

No opportunities on hold …

It’s been one heck of a week. A wonderful week filled with lots of exciting things, but holy moly, it’s been exhausting! Last night I was out late too. I’m not sure what I was thinking, HA! I knew morning was coming with all of its responsibilities. But you know what? It was worth it!

I thank God every day for doors that He opens to life’s adventures. Big or small, timed or untimely, they are all a blessing. So I seize them! If I have learned anything over the past year it’s that life can leave you tired in two different ways. The first, from being weighted down by stress, worry and other unpleasantries. And the second, by getting out there, despite it all, and having a ball anyway! Regardless of how hard it may have been at times, life has taught me to chose to do the latter. And it’s never served me wrong when I have. This decision to ACT and not WALLOW has allowed me to share incredible experiences with some beautiful souls that I would have missed otherwise. And THAT is what, I like to believe, is the definition of a life well-lived.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you don’t put any opportunity on hold!!!

I love it even more …

Today is one those days that I’m overwhelmed with all the good in my life. I have some incredible people that I share this journey with. I am grateful to have so much history with them. They GET me and always have. Our past, present and future together fills my heart with so much joy. And some days it’s all just magnified how very blessed I am.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you love your life even more!!!

Thankful …

I woke up unusually early this morning and I think there was a reason. I got to sit alone in quiet hotel room just thinking about what a wonderful birthday I had yesterday. I don’t take a whole lot of peaceful down time for myself. So it’s nice when God reminds me to take it. Anyway, my crew and I adventured up and around the central California coast yesterday. It was a very last minute decision to go but I’m glad we did. It was a lot of fun! And there were so many people who reached out to me yesterday. I am humbled by all their kind words. I am truly blessed to have such good people in my life. Adventuring and feeling loved. Days don’t get much better than that.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you are thankful!!!

Live life like it matters … 

I like to believe that I have a pretty good handle on what the most important and meaningful things in life are. But then there are some days that really drive it all home.


Live fearlessly.
Love completely.
Give effortlessly.
Trust.
Be. And have courage to become.
Don’t rush.
Smile.
Laugh. A lot.
Spend time with people who matter.
Tell them you love them. Take chances.
Hold hands.
Skip.
Dance.
Help.
Dream.
Believe in who you are. Believe in someone who doesn’t.
Tell them.
Hug.
Be kind.
Be good.
See beauty in everything.
Be happy, even if you are sad.
Watch sunrises. And sunsets.
Live your passion.
And never lose hope. Not. Ever.

Well, I hope you all have a day where you live life like it matters!!!
