I’ve learned on my travels that we don’t need much to be happy.
It’s more of a state that we can choose to be in, and doing the things that we want and like to do increases that state.
It’s often experiences that brings us to happiness, not things.
It is something that we need to refill regularly. Just like sleep, food, or anything else essential for us. .
I believe that life is about being happy, and doing the things that gives us that joy is worth focusing on.
Refill your happiness regularly, to be in that state. .
You know that rocking chair test that asks, “what will you regret that you didn’t do or say when you are 90...” What if you framed each day with that question? How much richer will your life be now? It’s our responsibility to hold ourselves to that standard because we are stewards of our lives.
Tell a different story, get a different life. When I came back from an injury that could have ended my martial arts journey, I had a choice to make. I could have chosen the story that disempowered me and made me feel like a victim of circumstance or I could do what I did. I chose to believe that I could figure it out and I did. If I can get a blackbelt at age 52, what could you do with faith, perseverance and the right beliefs? Choose the story that empowers you to try. You might be surprised by how much you can do! Happy Monday!

You are only limited by your beliefs. Change them and watch yourself begin to soar!
What’s a distinction that changes how you approach something? This one helps me to remember that pushing myself can make me tired but stretching myself can energize me to the next level of growth. Sometimes how you approach something can make all the difference.
I have a moment to breathe and the first thing that comes to mind is to share the view. I am so thankful for the ocean on busy days. Have a beautiful rest of the day! You got this!

Just like the consistency of nature to form the Grand Canyon, your consistent actions will form your life. Choose the actions that will make you proud.

Happy Pre-Valentine’s Day! I love the love of this holiday. When I recognize that feeling, and understand what it means, that recognition informs my actions and my relationships with everyone are richer because of it. How can you and I bring more love to everything we do? Have a beautiful day!

It was such a beautiful day, in part, because I took the time to really listen. In doing so, I brought more light and love into the conversation. That isn’t always the case, but today I’m taking the win!
This is one of my favorite quotes of all time, because it is so true. We question our ability to do great things because of our past experiences. If we trust in our capabilities we can eventually figure out a way to send a car into outer space. What’s possible for you if you start stretching yourself that way? #MondayMotivation

It was such a beautiful day today, and yet, I still have to schedule the habit of exercise or I’ll forget. That’s why I use my schedule to remind me keep important things important. It works for me. Maybe it will work for you, too!

When I look at this photo, I ask myself “what is possible between the branches?” What about you? What can you do given the obstacles you face? What haven’t you tried? Try something else till you find your way that works. I did it. You can too!
Do you know what I mean? You have permission to be who you are and do the things you want to do. So when someone tells you not to follow your calling - your dreams - that don’t know what you are capable of or what is possible for you. It is truly impossible for them to know your exact experience so do not give them your power to choose. You decide how you want to live your life and with that decision comes both the freedom and responsibility to make it happen. I believe you are able to do just that. Happy Monday!!
