Being Comfortable In Your Own Skin

How comfortable are you with you? You may be asking what today’s topic has to do with motivational speaking. Everything.

Finding Happiness Through New Positive Habits

For Lent this year, I have launched Project Happy FACE, which refers to four things I am giving up (FACE): Fish, Alcohol, Cheese and Eggs.

Can Dream Loneliness be Abated at Blog Events?

Hello my Thankful Thursday dreamers! This week I am grateful for new opportunities and the chance to meet new people. Blogging, even though it sounds like so much fun to readers, can be at times, tedious, because much of the hard work you will do is created as a solitary effort. Meaning, much of what […]
