1 day challenge

What have you been wanting to do and been putting off?

One thing that will take you out of your comfort zone. Perhaps only for 1 minute or 1 full day.

This is the 1 day challenge. Do one thing today that you haven’t done before or have been saying “I am going to do ________ this weekend, I swear this time!”

Do it. Then after the fact give yourself a high-five and a pat on the back!

Make it the best day!



It can feel as if you have all or none. Moving with momentum is the easiest part of moving. Why? Because you have assistance, the drive! When you don’t have momentum, everything can feel 100% harder.

How do we regain it? Did we ever lose it?

Focus on your task, little steps end up completing the end goal.

Those little steps build momentum and ultimately help in achieving that end goal.

Create your momentum and fuel it with small steps everyday to achieve your desired result!

Keep your head up

No matter what your goals may be there are roadblocks and hurdles. Little things that try stop or hinder you from your goal.

This may go on for 1,2 or 3 months. However, if you keep your intent positive and do the little things that you know will help achieve your goal, you will make it!!

Take the smallest victories on your way to your big goal. If a hurdle pops up, face it with the intent of learning and progressing. By keeping a positive outlook in the face of adversity not only will it make the journey a lot better, but it will make the victory that much sweeter!!

Keep your head up. Have an open mindset every day. Remember. yesterday’s successes or hurdles are in the past. If we truly want to reach our goals we need to treat everyday as new and wonderful opportunity. (Because it is 🙂

In a conversation we are either listening or we are not. We can be thinking about what happened during our day and just waiting for our turn to talk.

Turn your conversations today into one-sided conversations. I don’t mean that by talking the entire time. I mean that by listening and asking thoughtful and intelligent questions.

Listen to what your conversational parter is actually talking about. Don’t wait for your time to speak, but ask thoughtful questions that will further the conversation.

Attempt to listen today. You will be surprised at what you actually hear.

Giving with gratitude

Giving can come in many forms. It can be in the form of money, hugs, a verbal thank you. Giving is the best way to raise your frequency and operate at a higher level.

Try to give something away for a whole month. Again, this doesn’t have to be money or some large gift. It can be actions or material objects that express gratitude for small tasks up to large tasks.

Try to raise your frequency by giving one thing away a day for a whole month. Help raise someone else’s frequency and achieve your good feels along the way!

Quick pickled vegetables

Summer is a great time to delve into pickled veggies and other tasty treats.

Here is a recipe for a quick pickled cucumber. You can sub almost any vegetable for the cucumber. It can be carrot, red onion, beets, etc.


  • 1/2 cup white vinegar, eyeball it
  • 2 rounded teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove cracked garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill or 2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves, chopped or snipped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 kirby cucumbers, cut into 1-inch slices on an angle


Heat small saucepan over medium high heat. Add vinegar, sugar, mustard seed, salt, and garlic to the pan and cook until it begins to simmer and sugar dissolves. Toss the dill, bay leaf, and sliced cucumbers together in a heat-proof bowl. Pour the simmering liquid over the cucumbers and stir to evenly coat. Allow to cool to room temperature or chill before serving.

Premier League

Just a great weekend. The English Premier League opened this weekend. That means soccer has started!

This is off topic of the normal posts. However, soccer is back!

It warranted a post 🙂

Make it the best day!



Do you operate with integrity with friends, family, co-workers?

Can you be counted on to deliver on what you promise?

Show up on time. Deliver on promises. Operate with integrity.

Be Present

It seems everyday recently I wake and say “I can’t believe it’s August already!”

Then I realize all my thoughts are what I am going to do in future, even when I am doing something I truly enjoy.

Live in the moment. It will move past regardless. Savor it.

The ultimate enjoyment will be the ability to look back and know how fully engaged you were in the present.

Make it the best day!
