Since I've released my novel, Impact, you can get your copy on Amazon or an ebook version HERE .I have felt a sense of relief. It's a long process and, honestly it's quite scary to put your thoughts and creativity out for all of the world to see. I have talked myself out of finishing my book so many times because of thoughts that no one would read it, or if they did, they wouldn't like it. Then, I thought BUT what if people do read it, like it, and learn from it... 

I've noticed that many of the things I WANT to do are NOT usually done because of the BUT that follows. I notice myself saying  things like "I want to write a blog post BUT I don't have time" or "I want to talk to ____ about _____ BUT I don't feel comfortable having that conversation". I am learning that sometimes having a BUT can stop us from being better. The word but, in any situation, turns it around.

After reading Marianne Williamson’s inspiring quote on our deepest fear for about the 500th time in my life, it finally clicked.

You can check it out:

Delving into the crevices of my life, by reading a lot of self help books, listening to empowering podcasts (Myleik Teele’s in particular), and doing a lot of self reflection has caused me to reach the horrifying conclusion that I have been my biggest hurdle in accomplishing my goals. I thought my excuses were legit. They were things like: I don’t have time, I don’t have the proper resources, I only have one income in the home—I can’t afford to…(blah, blah, blah).  But, as I began to dig deeper into the success of others...

If you're anything like me, there have been days that roll by and you just don't know where the time went. Or you feel like there just isn't enough time in one day to get things done.


Last weekend I was listening to "Marriage More", a podcast created by Jeff and Mandy Rose. They were interviewing Hal Elrod and he was discussing his book Miracle Morning. I was instantly interested because if I can find somethng to maximize my time and make me more productive I'm there. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a thinker: I organize and prioritze things, but there are still times that I struggle to finish everything I need to do in one day. So, after hearing the interview, I was determined to do a "miracle morning" challenge.


My sister and I are extremely close, so as soon as I finished listening to the podcast, I called her and suggested that we buy the book and wake up one hour earlier for 30 days. She didn’t like that idea, so we compromised and decided to do it for 21 days (that’s how ma...
