Love every moment!

I love signs!  My newest one says, “Love each moment” Moments are short, quick little bits of time. These are the moments I’ve been catching and loving: Delicious hot tea sipped from a china mug.  Watching the chickadees at the feeder. Snuggling on the couch while watching TV. Looking at my clean kitchen and appreciating […]

Love and appreciate your body today!

Ever stood in front of your closet and just stared at your clothes?  You tried on an outfit, looked in the mirror and hung it back up?  Then just felt like crying?  Been there, done that! A few years ago I read a great book by Shari Braendel “In Help Me, Jesus! I Have Nothing To Wear! Shari […]

Yesterday’s failure does not define today!

Does your inner critic lie to you? “It’s been a busy stressful day. You deserve a reward.  There’s some cake left. Go ahead. Enjoy a nice big piece!” Then after you’ve had the cake she taunts you. “Do you know how many calories were in that? What happened to your plan to eat healthy? You […]

Overcoming the disturbing power of perfectionism!

Does perfectionism stop you from starting? I think perfectionism sabotages us all the time! Can’t clean the entire basement? We don’t start. Can’t organize all the closets? We don’t start. Can’t exercise for ½ an hour? We don’t start. Can’t commit to a healthy eating program? We don’t start. I’ve learned that a really structured […]

Change is hard, don’t get discouraged!

Do you ever get discouraged?  Last week I encouraged you to make a new routine. Mine was to do strength training in the morning.  I did it for 3 days and then missed the next 2! It’s so discouraging. I read this good prayer in the Daily Bread booklet and it really helped me.  I […]

Take a U turn and have victory!

Are you so far off track that you’ve given up? Ever taken a wrong turn on a road trip? Or maybe you came across construction and got lost following the detour signs. Would you say this? “Oh well I’ve made one bad turn. I might as well keep going until the end of the day. […]

Embrace Imperfect Progress and Have Hope!

“I’ve failed so many times before that I can’t try again. If I haven’t made any progress by this age then I’m hopeless. If I can’t do it perfectly then I’m not even going to try”. Can you relate to these statements?   Oh friend, please know there is always hope. There’s hope because God […]
