• Day Twenty-six: “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo Buscaglia

    It is so easy to get wrapped up in our own problems in life and since Jonah Wynn has passed away I have been consumed with healing the grief I feel as well as trying to improve my own physical health.  But for day twenty-six I add a new dimension to my healing, to check in on how others are doing.

    So much has happened outside of my own vortex and today I took the time to talk to some of my family and friends to see how they are doing.  I also checked in with my now teenage son, at age fifteen, to talk about life, his life, and how he is doing.  I have always thought of Tanner and Rion as “old souls” and often forget that they too are human and like all of us makes mistakes.

    I place a lot of pressure on Tanner as I want him to continue to be a role model for his sister Rion.  Rion adores her big brother and when most kids her age complain about their siblings she stands by him and sees him as the brother who can do no wrong.

    I then had a similar life talk with my daughter and she too shared her goals, things she strives to improve on, and I explained to her as well that we all make mistakes and that it is not the mistakes that count but rather what we do with them and how we grow because of them.

    Our children grow up before our eyes and it so important to keep the lines of communication open.  I hope my children will always know much they are loved and that regardless of the challenge that is put forth I will always have both the “time” and “want” to listen.

    Day Twenty-six: Check in on how others are doing.


    I believe in being a leader without title and always strive to do better. I am inspired by doing kind acts for others and believe in the power of intention. I don't give up just because I am told something can't be done. I ask why and strive to do the impossible. Hardships happen to all of us (everyone has a story) but I choose to look for the rainbow through the storm. I rely on my husband for support - he is my hero. Education is power and I strive to always learn more. I aim to live each day as if it is my last and choose to show people how I like to be treated. I say what I feel and aim to have the people I encounter leave better than they came. I love my career and do it because it is my passion. Because time flies when you enjoy what you do, I slow time down by being present in each moment. I choose to live now with no regrets of "should have". I enjoy life and the people in it.
