Everything will work out in the end. It’s just the time in between that can get a little interesting.


Whenever I’m facing off with some not so fun circumstances, I remind myself that everything will eventually work itself out. No matter what the mess, it always has.

Now I can’t promise it won’t get a little messy before it works out, though.

But that’s ok. When you have trust and faith that things will eventually work out, getting through the messy middles are more doable.

Just hang in and stay the course, my friends.


Don’t ever stop being teachable.


The minute you think you know everything, two things happen. One, you come off as an arrogant know it all. Two, you stop growing.

It’s ok to not know everything. You’re human.

We’re all human.

Stay strong, my friends.


Memories are the best gift you can give or receive.


It’s stressful trying to find that perfect gift for a friend or family member, isn’t it?

We stopped buying gifts for family and friends years ago. Mostly because I wanted to the focus of the season to be on something other than material things.

And then, at work, my boss talked about how he and his family made memories instead of exchanging gifts.

How cool is that?

Material things come and go, but memories can make you smile years and years later. Long after a material gift would have broken or been replaced.

So, what fun memories are you going to make?


Don’t hide behind noise.


Life is noisy. Ever notice that? Music blaring, constant chatter, TV playing 24/7.

Some brush it off as just wanting some white noise around, that they just don’t like total silence

Ever wonder why?

If you follow me on social media you already know that P!nk is one of my favorite artists. Her words are powerful, and in her song, Sober, this phrase about silence really hit home with me: The quiet scares me ‘cause it screams the truth.


Ever notice that when you slow down and be still in silence, your mind can wander over past events? Feelings can rush over you like a tidal wave if there aren’t any distractions, and that’s difficult to handle.

But don’t hide behind the noise. Distractions will only delay the inevitable. Because whatever thought or emotion we were avoiding will come at us out of nowhere and take us by surprise if we’re not careful.

Stay strong, my friends.
