RIP to my favorite teacher and coach….
p>
  — I remember it like it was yesterday…. sitting in his History class, entranced with the way he told stories.  I could almost envision it all coming to life with his great chalk drawings and his amazing story-telling.  I almost forgot that I was learning. Besides being a great teacher, I had a special opportunity to get to know him a little bit more….   Jr High was so so so many years ago…whew– almost 16 years ago? wow. But, no matter how many years pass by, the impact this one teacher had on my life will never fade away.   Playing basketball my 8th grade year was a challenge, I had a crappy coach who only played her...

my secret, simple key, to staying fit…
p>my secret, simple key, to staying fit, active and healthy….. This is not magic…. Not a fluffy motivational mindset… Not an inherent personality trait of strong will and determination… — Maintaining an active lifestyle is obviously a goal in my life. I am sure it is a goal of yours too. But what happens when life gets in the way? and you wake up, and you realize you haven’t used your gym membership in months… you have not ran or walked in weeks…and even thought its your desire to stay active, you just “fall off the wagon”… — I feel, the day I stop moving, is the day I give up and allow my body and...

Seduction… He is Seducing me.. but its not what you may think.
p>Seduction… when you read that word… what sort of feeling does it give you? or image? does it only have a sexual connotation? a negative angle? Do you think of Scandal? or… Do you think of God’s character? weird huh?   —-   I wanted to describe the last few days and this crazy thing that God is doing in me… but the only word I could find to describe it, was …”seduction..”   but it just didn’t feel right to use that word. it feels weird to put the word “seduction” and “God” in the same sentence, right? – I looked up the definition just to see if there may be a better...

I am still here….beat up but not broken…
p>Wow. Have you ever been in such a flurry of emotions that your ability to communicate effectively, your desire to create and your focus somehow disappears. I have been so quiet lately… Not writing… not sketching… not creating new product… not being “me.”   Its now June.  And I have yet to land that next career move. My patience is wearing thin…my confidence is wavering…. i feel beat up I knew in April when I was laid off, that this process would be a tedious,  roller coaster of hope and discouragment.  That even though I have a big faith in a Mighty provision and a great confidence in my abilities, the job market is...
