Happiness is a Choice

Here’s what I know for sure, Happiness Is A Choice. There is so much more we are capable of, and through mindset and beliefs, we have the power to design our life and choose happiness. The hustle of life is filled with people, events, and stimuli, there’s no avoiding it. The weather. Traffic. People at the coffee shop. Eating dinner with the family. Stimuli encountered throughout the day aren’t ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ they’re neutral, and often cannot be controlled. Everyday, we are presented hundreds of situations. The beautiful part is that based on our beliefs, we have total self-power to… Read more.

Remembering to Dig Deep

The best lessons I’ve learned in life have happened while running and if there is one thing I can share with the others, it is “Dig Deep.” It’s a phrase I say to myself whether on a daily run where I feel less than strong or in a road race when I feel as if my legs are like noodles and I am going to bring up cookies. Not the prettiest of all imageries, but “Dig Deep” has carried over into other areas of my life when I felt like the world was handing me way too much. You don’t… Read more.

Success comes fastest to those who keep going when all others stop.


Take Charge of Your Life

Be a doer, not a watcher. So many temptations lure you into sitting on the sidelines of life, just watching: riveting TV shows and movies, websites, social media. We emerge blinking and wondering where the time went. Turn off the distractions. Map your dream. Take one step toward it every day. Your time is your most precious asset. Do not give it away carelessly, and don’t fritter it away. Learn to say no to requests for your time that don’t get you closer to your dream. Don’t let time get away from you. Wake up before everyone else and feed… Read more.

With trust, a positive attitude, and persistence, you will reach a destination that is right for you.


If you quit you'll never know what might have been.


Your Hero In Times of Need

You are the hero you’ve been waiting for. No matter what challenge you’re facing, there is no one who can save you the way that you can. We all need support, but it’s up to you to take the first step. Deep down within all of us is a strong spirit, an unseen force that we’re born with. I call it the hero within us — and you are the hero you’ve been waiting for. When you’re lost, when you’re feeling like you need someone to rescue you, that someone is you. The most important thing you’ll ever do in… Read more.

What Baby Steps Will You Take Today?

If you’re anything like me, with the New Year ahead of us, our minds are now turning to the things we’d like to accomplish in the New Year and to our resolutions. With the close of one year, it seems natural to look at our accomplishments and our outstanding goals and dreams. Sometimes that reflection can bring a feeling of excitement, and sometimes it can create a feeling of overwhelming proportion when the mountain ahead of us appears too large to summit. It’s critical when looking at any large task to remember one thing. You first learned to walk by… Read more.

You don’t have to be ‘gifted’ or the smartest, but if you keep at it, you will get there. In time, you will find you have surpassed even the gifted ones.


When we are determined, positive and persistent, we do not give up easily. We fight!


Life has a way of making people give up. With determination, dedication and sacrifice, everything will work out.


Until you win, keep putting in your hard work, time, and dedication.


5 Principles To Lead A Fulfilled Life

1. To learn anything, you cannot be afraid to ask questions. This fear no doubt harkens back to grade school, when other kids would poke fun at the kid who asked for clarification on something. Unfortunately, most people don’t grow out of it, fearing others will think them simple. The reality is, while everyone is an expert at something, no one can be an expert in everything. If you don’t ask, you won’t learn. Ask questions until you are satisfied you understand the answer. This may be the only opportunity you have to learn. Don’t miss out on the experience…. Read more.

You can achieve virtually anything if you are willing to hear no often enough.

How Long Does it Take to Reach a Dream?

Sometimes dreams take a little longer than we expect, but with perseverance and belief, they will come true – all in good time. Many years ago I had a stained glass art studio that I loved. Through divorce and the challenges of life, I lost my studio. I packed the materials, knowing that I’d have one again, but I didn’t know where or when. For the last year I’ve been working on a project inside Glacier National Park, called Glacier Bear Retreat. As you might know, we bought an old cabin, removed it from the property and built our new… Read more.
