No Guts, no glory.

I think I finally understand the meaning of the statement, 'No Guts, No Glory.' Recently, I've been seeing this statement come into fruition. I believe the term 'guts' as it is used in this phrase, refers to an individuals emotional state as it relates to doing something that is either uncomfortable, unfamiliar, or frightening.

Taking Care of Home

I am and probably will always be a family oriented person. My family means so much to me. Growing up, I was the care giver. Or at least I thought I was. Lol. I was the middle child and wanted to always be there to protect my older sister and younger brother. I was the [...]

Why I Blog?

  When I was a little girl (how all fairy tales begin) I dreamt of having my own life. I know that sounds crazy, but I've always felt so attached to other people's lives. I wanted to be able to have and influence my own. That might sound a little crazy, but I was the [...]

You’re Unforgettable!

I was listening to a podcast the other day and someone said something that has stuck with me. Fran, from HeyFranHey.com said on The Friend Zone Podcast while discussing interacting and connecting with people, Fran said: 'You're Unforgettable. That's Powerful."  I had to let this sink in for a minute because I didn't think of myself. I thought [...]

8 Days and A Wake Up

Yesterday, in a meeting with a few co-workers, we began talking about the process for my transition from the company. My last day of work is Thursday, July 27th, which was exactly 14 days away. As we were talking about my departure, one of my co-workers, whose retired from the military, informed me of the [...]
