Turn around

I popped on Facebook and I saw the memories option on my home page. I love that feature of Facebook.

As I was scrolling through the past posts I saw this picture I took 5 years ago. 5 years!
I feel like I’ve blinked and the time has passed.

This picture makes me smile and cry at the same time.

Cry because I miss my dad. Smile because I’ve had wonderful years with mom and I know mom will see dad soon. I see him waiting in Heaven’s door and mom just needs to turn around and walk to him.

We are told so often to look ahead. Don’t look back. I totally agree – usually! But, sometimes the answer is behind us rather than in front of us.

  • If you are struggling, turn around and look at your past successes and duplicate how you obtained them.
  • If you’ve forgotten the goals you set for 2017, turn around and look at t your vision board and write down actions steps to achieve them.  It’s not too late. No vision board? You need to talk to me!
  • Gotten off your movement and healthy eating plan? Turn around to when you were active and ate healthy and do it again.
  • Office a disorganized mess? Think back to when it was organized and you had systems. They were good systems and they worked. Turn around to see what they were and set them up again.
  • Wasting time with people who drag you down? Turn around and walk away. There are so many awesome, positive people to spend your time and be lifted up.

Do you desperately want to turn around and enjoy life but you are tired, stressed out and overwhelmed? Look over the information below and talk to me about hanging out for 90 days and together we will get you totally turned around and facing the right direction!

Let’s turn you around

It may be time to take stock of your life and career. If things aren’t going so well – or everything stays the same and you find life lacking some luster –  is it time for a new way to look and do things?

My DESIRE Personal Empowerment Program changes – well, it changes everything.

This is a personal 1:1 program with me for 90 days and only women who are truly ready for amazing results are accepted.

This is for you if you are ready to take stock of where you are, what makes your heart sing, and take the first steps to brighten up your life.

This is for you if you are ready to detox obstacles and energy suckers that are getting in your way and you want a fresh start.
This is for you if you want to set healthy new habits to support your fresh start and set achievable goals based on the vision you have for your life.

Is this you? E-mail me at  or call me at 605-310-5764 and we will set up a time to find out.  If you are not where you want to be now is your time – it really is!



How do you know for sure?

Have you ever seen someone do something and think, “I could never do that!”

I know I have. Well, how do you know for sure if you don’t even try?

If your mind says ‘I can’t do it’; you can’t.
If your mind says ‘let’s try’; you will give it a shot. But, if you try it once and can’t do it; you may never try it again.

I’ve tried to do pull ups before. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

The other day at my gym’s circuit class one of the stations was pullups. I took one look and told myself “I’ll just do pushups on the ground instead when I get to that station.” I wasn’t even going to try.

As I went through the circuit class it came time for the pull-up station. I looked at the pull-up bar, I looked at the tire and elastic band which were there to help us, and I decided to give it a try.

I got up on the tire and tried to get my foot in the elastic band. Major fail! I tried again and couldn’t do it. My workout- partner say what I was trying and came over and put my foot in the elastic band. And, up I went! I did the 5 pullups the station required and I did it over and over again.
Let’s just say I was quite proud of myself!

The only reason I could achieve it was because of the help of my work-out partner and the aids that were made available so I could achieve the goal.

Have you set some goals for 2017 and are having 2nd thoughts? Maybe you’ve tried to achieve them in the past and (in your mind) failed?

I want you to think of a car’s front window and compare it to the rear-view mirror. Which is larger?

The window looking forward. The rear-view mirror is the past. Let it go.

The goals you set may be perfect goals for you but without someone to help you (the tire and elastic band!) they can seem impossible.

Let’s do this together! Check out the information for the Thursday, March 2, 2017  Create Your Life the Way God Intended Virtual Vision Board Retreat here~~

Could it be that simple?

I was in a Target in Houston, TX and was surprised to see this arrow on the floor as I walked target-happyin.

Could it be that simple? If I follow this arrow will I find happiness?

Now, I love Target, but I really don’t think that is where I’ll find my happiness. Lots of short-term happiness, perhaps, but, not long-term happiness.

Where do you look for happiness? Or, do you look for it at all?

I know sometimes it just happens. You hear a child laugh and you feel happy. You see a beautiful snow fall and since you aren’t traveling anywhere that day you’re happy. You think snowyour computer has bit the dust, but you turn it off and then turn it on, and magically everything is fixed. Lots of happiness!

There are also days where happiness may be hard to find. I’ve had days like that. Those are tough days. What makes them tougher is that I didn’t even think to look for happiness. It was all around me – I just didn’t look. Does this ever happen to you?

What if we insert an arrow somewhere in our life and every day we would look for joy, happiness, and peace.  You know what? I know we’d find it. Even on the darkest days. It really could be that simple.

My biggest arrow is my Bible. I know I’m following the right arrow to happiness when I study His word.

Another important arrow is my vision board. This board represents what I know God desiresmy-vb-from-first-workshop for my life and everything on it represents happiness. What is really cool is that yesterday a big piece of what I envisioned for this year came true. And it was only the 1st month of the year. It can be that simple!

Do you have your vision board in front of you every day? It’s a great happiness-seeking arrow!

Don’t have a vision board? Oh, dear! Please read below!

It’s time to create your vision board from the comfort of your own home or office

What do other Vision Board Retreat attendees say?

  • I realized about a week ago that January was almost finished, and I was still floundering. Slogging through my days with no real goal in sight. At just the right time, an email from my friend, speaker and coach Elizabeth Hagen, came into my inbox. I signed up right away. By the end of the virtual day, I was revitalized and ready to go again. While creating the vision board was the end result, what happened during the largest part of the day were exercises designed to help us figure out and clarify our goals for the year. No namby-pamby, wimpy, vague statements allowed. Only intentional actions, with definable results permitted. Both big dreams and small were presented, but all with a specific plan of action.
  • Thanks for the wonderful class.  This is the first time I have actually completed any project in ages.  I usually start them and never finish.  I am glad you insisted we finish.
  • I had a wonderful day yesterday with you and the other ladies.  Thank you very much for your time and guidance in helping us all move toward our dreams.  Thank you!  •  605-310-5764  •
