B. Inspired – You…Bolder, Braver

As the year winds down and the holidays rapidly approach, I am starting to think about my new journey in 2016. A clean slate and fresh start always adds a little pep to my step. It’s new year full of possibilities and the hope of becoming better. Over time, I’ve come to realize each day…

B. Inspired – A Few of My Favorite Things

As the Winter season approaches and the air gets crisper and cooler, it’s a great time to winter proof your home (check that furnace filter) and get out your warm and cuddly throw blankets if you have not already. Some folks are not very fond of Winter, but I find this transition of the seasons…

B. Inspired – Keep the Faith

It is the season of advent. Christmas is right around the corner. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family, friends and good food. Celebrating and entertaining is always a great way to get into the holiday spirit. Catch any amazing Black Friday deals? I nabbed a few, but I am more of…

B. Inspired – I am grateful

This thanksgiving take a moment to pause, breathe and reflect on all that you have in your life. Family, friends, spouses, co-workers and those that are there in the moments when you need it the most. While the holiday season is here and we anxiously make the lists of luxury items we could easily live…

B. Inspired – Taking Flight

“What if I fall? Oh, my darling, but what if you fly?” This quote has been one of my favorites during my current journey. What’s incredible about this quote is that it is taken from a short poem written by 19 year-old poet, Erin Hanson. Proof that even at a young age, we can inspire…

B. Inspired – Don’t Worry, Keep Going!

It’s Friday the 13th! Are you superstitious? Do you have any weird routines or behaviors you avoid on a day like today? In our everyday lives, lots of us have regimens, habits and tasks we complete based on deep set patterns of functioning and the belief of how things should flow. We trust our instincts and…

B. Inspired – Lights, Camera, Life!

It’s Friday! My favorite day of the week. Lots of people love Saturday, but I simply love the anticipation of the weekend…the hope and beginning of it all. This Saturday I am attending the Martha Stewart American Made Summit. Speakers such as Martha herself, Arianna Huffington and Emeril Lagasse will speak about entrepreneurship, passion, creativity…

B. Inspired – Your Words, Your Thoughts; Your Life

Ever wonder if your life is just a series of random events or if your words and thoughts actually have an impact on your day to day outcomes. I believe in the power of words. So much so that I started this blog two years ago in hopes to encourage or inspire anyone that read…

Living My Life Like It’s Golden!

About 35…I am writing this on the eve of my 35th birthday. It’s one I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. I like to think of 35 as the lonely milestone that doesn’t get the hype that other milestone ages receive. You’ve got Sweet 16, Legal 21, Finally-a-Real-Adult 25 and of course the…

Breathing Space

I am a long time reader of O, Magazine founded by the incomparable Oprah Winfrey. One of the features I have always looked forward to in the magazine is the full page spread titled Breathing Space. It’s not a story or feature article. It is always simply a high resolution image of heavenly scenery or landscape…

Perfectly Imperfect

I was recently completing an online survey for a psychology course class I am taking. This test was supposed to be able to determine if you had traits of narcissism. There was a scale by which they score your answers and in the end, calculate a number and tell you where you landed on this…

Take Me Away!

Often during this time of year we fill up our plates with tons of work, commitments and miscellaneous tasks to ensure we are in fact being productive. One of the worst things you can do is sign up to help everyone else out and in the process neglect yourself. We are stepping into cold and…
