Lessons from The Lion King 

Lessons from The Lion King 

I’ve been searching and searching for how to fix this funk I’ve been in lately.  The more I search and read the more deflated I’ve been feeling.  I just beat myself up over and over again.  I’ll never measure up.  I’ll never figure out why I am so irritable.  I’ll never be content.  The more I search, the more this is…

Not Enough

Not Enough

How often do you feel like there’s not enough of something? There’s not enough time, not enough energy, not enough help, and somedays I feel like I’m just not enough. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have gone through my list of “not-enoughs” before even getting out of bed in the mornings. I…

What is Your Body Saying?

What is Your Body Saying?

My day-to-day life can become very much a routine that I just autopilot through.  I wake up when my alarm goes off, I eat meals at mealtime, and I go to bed around a certain time.  I do not even really think about it.  After such a long time of autopilot living, I think I…

Locked In

Locked In

You leave home and lock the door.  You park your car and lock the door before walking off.  You put a lock on your locker and on your safe.  We do all we can to protect our possessions.  A lock serves many purposes and the owner of the key can enter as often as they…

Fitting In Verses Belonging

Fitting In Verses Belonging

Think back to your first day of high school.  The night before you are full of emotions.  You are excited but there’s a layer of fear that you just can’t shake.  You call your friends up to see what they are wearing for the big day.  You wished you had asked that just out of…

Living Small and Curious

Living Small and Curious

What do the words small and curious mean to you? These two words can mean different things.  Recently I have read several different things where those words popped up.

Who Am I?

Who Am I?

Sometimes I feel lost and don’t even know who I am. I catch myself trying to be like this successful person, that great writer or that great coach. Sometimes I don’t understand why I act the way I do or why God gave me certain traits. Why did I respond that way? Why can’t I…
