B. Inspired: Owning Your Life

Happy Friday Everyone! As the summer dwindles down (although you wouldn’t know it by the weather), we are once again in a transition of sorts. Kids are back to school, traffic is indeed heavier, work may be picking up and we all adjust accordingly because that’s what we do. Have you ever thought about what…

B. Inspired: The Habit of Gratitude

Dear Friends, It’s the closing of a week once again and in this case, the closing of a month as well. The summer is flying and before we know it, the rapid and joyous holiday season will be upon us. One of the things we can never outrun is time. Time continues to move forward…

B. Inspired: Reflections on Self Care

Hello friends! It’s been a long time. I only like to post when I genuinely feel I’ve got something to say that will help someone. The blog is ever-evolving and I have found that my posts on personal and life journey inspiration resonate with most followers. So today I’m going to talk a little bit…

B. Inspired: About Waiting

Hello dear friends! It’s been a while. I’ve missed writing and connecting with you, but I also needed a break to refuel. There’s lots happening for me and I have found that stepping away can often be the best way to handle stress, anxiety, or a creative dry-spell. Do you ever get the sense that you…

B. Inspired: Boundaries Are a Good Thing

Happy Friday everyone…it’s been a while. I took a writing break for a few weeks as things have been busier than ever. I hope you’ve been well. I always want to give my best and when I run on empty, I can’t do that so I’ve learned when to break. Even as I watch the calendar days fly…

B. Inspired – Relax & Renew

Happy Friday, Friends! We made it, and here we are once again. Do you ever get the feeling that you are running in circles? Living each day in a warped repetition of going through the motions but not really accomplishing anything? Okay – good. Glad I’m not the only one. I recently had someone close to me…

B. Inspired – Celebrate!

Happy Friday, dear friends. Another week is behind us. Sometimes when we are in the thick of things, we don’t always notice the small victories we’ve had along the way. Take time to reflect on the week, the last two weeks or even all of January. I guarantee you’ve accomplished something – maybe not a…

B. Inspired – Peace Along the Path

Happy Friday dear friends. My favorite day of the week by far. Anticipating a well earned weekend is sometimes all I need to get up in the morning. I want to talk about ever-changing journeys and learning to find comfort in the little things. I spoke to my mom recently and expressed how I felt all over…

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…
