{Thrive} Mindful Monday: Setting the Tone

Be The Ebergy You Want to SeeBe the change you want to see. That is this week’s mantra. Toward the end of the week last week I was spinning my emotional wheels. I felt exhausted and depleted and annoyed with everyone and everything (including myself). I found myself placing blame on others and brainstorming ways I could convince them to change. Sound familiar? We’ve all done it. Continue reading “{Thrive} Mindful Monday: Setting the Tone”

{Thrive} Mindful Monday: What Really Defines You?

FullSizeRenderI was listening to NPR last week. It was a story about what it means to be a breast cancer “survivor”.

The words or labels we hold onto and those that we tend to forget. Continue reading “{Thrive} Mindful Monday: What Really Defines You?”

{Breathe} Mindful Monday: Savor the Ordinary Moments

For this week’s intention, pick a rather mundane moment that occurs regularly in your life and pause to find the beauty in it. Pause to feel gratitude. I am feeling excited just thinking about this!
