A bad moment, a bad day, a bad week… it’s ok. It doesn’t define you. I almost thought about ending the post there. The reality is, that sums up the lesson you need to learn. But I suspect it wouldn’t be as impactful. If you have been super encouraged by the first sentence, great. IfContinue reading “Definition-You: not all the bad things you think.”

Today, I was part of a group of leaders that spent some time honoring and celebrating someone for a lifetime of achievements. It was a very bittersweet moment. The man we honored is having some pretty severe health issues. He hasn’t been given an expiration date, but his health is not on the positive sideContinue reading “Words Matter”
How many times will you do it wrong?
I have a love-hate relationship with garage door openers. Specifically the kind that Ford builds into their vehicles. If you own a Ford, you know what I’m talking about. It’s the three buttons that are virtually impossible to program. If you are one of those mavericks that never has problems getting these things to work,Continue reading “How many times will you do it wrong?”
Have you ever heard the phrase “fake it til you make it?” Yeah, we probably all have. Have you ever felt like all you were doing is faking it? Or maybe just making it up as you go? Does that make you feel less than? Like maybe you are an imposter trying to fake itContinue reading “Fakers unite!”
Be kind, rewind!
It’s been a bit since I have let anything post to the blog. There’s a reason for it. For any of you born after 2000, I’m going to use some terms related to a Video Cassette Recorder.

If I gave all the examples I have experienced directly or witnessed first hand, it would be about asContinue reading “Unsolicited Advice”
Look at me…You are the captain now!
Do you ever feel completely inadequate? No, okay, stop reading. For the rest of us honest people, I’ll continue. That feeling of inadequacy can be rooted in a lot of different things. Sometimes it’s because you’re not trying. Other times it is because you’re overwhelmed and you just don’t have anything left to give. InContinue reading “Look at me…You are the captain now!”
This Means War
One of my favorite things in any action movie is the part where the hero(s) suit up and go into battle. There’s something exciting and cool about it. They are putting on their mechanical exoskeleton or their super powered armor that has weapons or shields built in. It has a cool look, makes them lookContinue reading “This Means War”
Open Your Eyes Already!
Today’s post really is a great post to talk about perspective. If you haven’t figured out by now, my posts are generally about the real struggles we face and how to point us back to the straight and narrow that we should be on. This muttering of words and thoughts is no different. I rememberContinue reading “Open Your Eyes Already!”
This isn’t a post about a specific generation. I know that the word entitlement is often associated with millennials. I know first hand why it is. In many cases, there’s a tinge of unfortunate accuracy to the connotation and association. But, I am not talking about blanket judgment of a generation. I’m talking about anyoneContinue reading “Entitlement Syndrome”
