Dream. Believe. Achieve. Repeat. It's the only way I consistently meet my #goals. And today, I'm sharing #tips and #tech that help!

Dream, Believe, Achieve, Repeat. This is the only way, for me, to make the changes I want to make in my life and reach my goals. So what’s my current dream / goal? To run the Turkey Trot 10K this November. 6 miles may seem like an odd goal for a former…

Weekend Round-up - #Recipes

I am a work in progress. That’s what it boils down to. I’ve had chronic issues my whole life, and the past few years, my awesome doctor and I have been basically experimenting, trying to rule things out (or in). Frankly, I think I might write about it.…
It's my weekly round-up of interesting recipes I've stumbled across this past week! Did I miss any good ones? Feel free to share.

Web Team Dragon Wednesday! - License to Drive #WebTeamDragon

When the weather is nice (unlike this past weekend), the Web Team Dragon likes to hitch a ride away from the office. I guess even our office mascots need some time away from work! When I found him lurking on my steering wheel though, he and I had a bit of…

Web Team Dragon Wednesday! - Fantasy Toilet Paper?

So, the Web Team Dragon snuck off with my phone again. This is what happened. I told him it looks like he stamped himself onto a roll of toilet paper. He told me that he finds me annoying. :-)

#WebTeamDragon Wednesday! - Motivation

The Web Team Dragon and I need to talk about what makes a “good” motivational poster. He and I have different ideas … :-) (On a side note, the Coyote and Roadrunner picture that the WTD finds so motivating was drawn –freehand– by my coworker’s seriously…

I'd Rather be #Writing

  I’ve recently gotten back into writing. I used to do a lot more of it than I have been the past few years (enough of it to get a few short stories published). My problem lately, though, I think, is that I put way too much pressure on myself to make my…
What tempts you from your chores on a beautiful day? For me, it's writing, and I'm following the advice of the late Ray Bradbury to do more of it.

Social Media and Sanity - How Cutting Down on One Helps Save the Other

My phone died a couple of weeks ago. For anyone else whose life is on their phone, you know this can make for a rough day. Thankfully, my hubby is a tech wizard and had it working again within a couple of hours. But I had to reload everything from…

A Philosopher’s Notes by Brian Johnson – Recommended #Reading

Over the past three years, personal development and I have become what my youngest used to call “BFFs.” I read at least a book a week. I watch videos that I find interesting, helpful, or just plain inspiring. And of course, there are my monthly phone…
