You’ve heard the phrase “ It’s not the destination, it’s about the Journey”. I’ve heard it, you’ve heard it but what does it really mean?
I recently heard a podcast from one of my mentors, Melissa Ambrosini, where she interviewed Jack Canfield-an influencer for me for sure (most famously known for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series). You can hear the full Podcast here. It was like a lightening bolt hit me and for the first time, I got that message in a whole new way.
Are you a social Media addict? If you are reading this, you're definitely a possible candidate. The symptoms can lead to several things like FOMO, Comparisonitis, and many other Expectation Hangovers. I mean, let's face it, everyone uses social media to facilitate some part of their life;
Going on a business trip for me is a new experience, one which I am learning to love. As I head out to Cali for a seminar I’m taking, I start imagining the many books I’ll read, the movies I’ll watch, the ideas that will pour out of me. But, the truth is,

I like to post once a month, usually my top 3 books. Lately I’ve had the pleasure of being selected to be part of 2 book launches! I had the pleasure of reading these books before they were put on the newsstands aka. put up on Amazon for the public to enjoy.

I have to admit it, I fell off the wagon recently. I fell off my spiritual wagon and before I knew it life was happening to me instead of for me. It all started when we went on Spring Break…I started out great,
Spring is here, and with the arrival of the new season come thoughts of spring cleaning our closets and getting rid of those heavy sweaters and jackets. With the longer, lighter days, it’s a perfect time to re-think some of the foods that kept you cozy this winter and may have packed on a few unwanted pounds.
