What’s your secret wish? You know, the one that calls to you in the wee small hours, that burns deep inside your heart. The one that creeps into the unguarded corners of your mind, but gets scared away by the excuses and “if onlys” that drown out the glitter and glow of what might have […]

No Soup for You.

I recently read a piece by Todd Henry about “Learn to say ‘It’s not for you.‘”  When I saw the title, I assumed it was about learning to say that something wasn’t “right” for us, when in fact the blog post was about telling certain segments of the public that the art, product, or service […]

How I Lost 200 lbs. in 15 Minutes

What’s Stopping You?

I’ve been working with my 30 Days to Fly Facebook group to identify where in the goal-setting process we  fall apart. It’s clear – most of us know what our goals and dreams are, and we often even know how to achieve them, but we fall apart in the execution. We know we need to […]
