Finding Meaning Where it Matters

Hi friends and followers! Last we talked, I was getting ready to head out for a father-daughter date as part of my #LifeOnPurpose series. We were long over due to spend some quality time together, so we headed to a favorite local restaurant, feasted on delicious dishes, and enjoyed catching up while listening to a jazz quartet on a patio. When you see the photos, you will know where I get my style and grace…. Continue reading “Finding Meaning Where it Matters”

If it Were Easy

I’ve hit a rough patch in my #LifeOnPurpose challenge. It turns out that it isn’t easy to wake up and be intentional and purposeful every day. Even with a list of ideas, a schedule of challenges, and the best intentions, sometimes it is just easier to coast.

Im currently on Day 24 of my challenge, and you might be curious to know what I’ve accomplished in the last seven days. Truthfully? Not much. I’ve hit the point where I really kind of wish I had made this a 20 day challenge instead of a 40. Continue reading “If it Were Easy”

Body & Soul

This post is part of an on-going series called, #LifeOnPurpose, where I have challenged myself for the next forty days to do something each day- no matter how small – to slow down, notice my surroundings, and be intentional. It is part of my effort to live less on accident and more on purpose. You can read other posts in this series here:

Day 5

Day 5 was a Friday, and the perfect time to clear the evening for some much needed relaxation with friends. My plan for the evening was to do something that I really, really, enjoy, and that is spending a summer evening out on our patio, dining al fresco.  Continue reading “Body & Soul”

Healthful Hydration

Yesterday, I shared the details of my latest challenge that I’m undertaking. If you missed it, you can read about it here. But the general idea is that I’m taking the next fourty 39 days to work on being intentional. Each day, I want to take a break from routines, schedules, and busyness and simply be present in the moment and live more on purpose, and less on accident. Continue reading “Healthful Hydration”
