The Day My World Changed

“I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something.”

 - Edward Everett Hale

Last June, I spent two incredible weeks in Roatan, Honduras. If you’ve heard of the small Caribbean island, it’s probably because of the beautiful reef that surrounds it. Supposedly, it’s the second largest in the world. And it is incredible.  More…

This Too Shall Pass

“You know you can’t keep letting it get you down,
And you can’t keep dragging that dead weight around.
Is it really all that much to lug around?
Better run like hell when you hit the ground.”

- OKGO, This Too Shall Pass 

Today was my 30th birthday. Which got me to thinking about time. As human beings, our time on this earth starts counting down the minute we’re born. Our first breath brings us one closer to our last. Pretty depressing, right? Well, it doesn’t have to be.

New Day, New You

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Formative Friends and the Future You

“Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends…”

- The Beatles

The exceptional show of support from my awesome friends at Success Along the Weigh and their readers got me thinking about the power of the people we choose to let in our lives. I would argue that the folks we surround ourselves with are the second most powerful force in shaping who we are today and who we will become tomorrow (the first being what we believe about ourselves – more on that in a later post).

Fear & the New Year


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

 - Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love

Yesterday I was having breakfast with friends, a married couple, I hadn’t seen in a long time. These are two incredible folks on their own journey to change themselves for the better and they have been a hugely positive influence on me.
