About Me







This post best explains my purpose here:  Time to Reflect

I believe in the Law of Attraction. I believe in laughing, especially at yourself. Flowers make me incredibly happy. I believe there is no such thing as right or wrong. I respect all beliefs because no one can possibly be “right.” Everyone should dance. Speaking and living your truth is one of the hardest things to do. I love the smell of books. I believe in smiling at strangers. I believe in looking a waiter in the eye at a restaurant. I believe in saying, “Thank you!”  Singing really loud and really bad is so much fun (at least for me). I am a perfectionist and it is important to me that I work on chillin’ the f*&$ out! I believe in the power of meditation. I teach Pilates because it changed my life. I write to help myself and others.  My purpose in life is to inspire others.

Well, that sounds like a good start.  Thanks for being here.  I’m glad you came.

  1. Thanks so much for following my blog. All the best to you. Renee 🙂

  2. Love your descriptions- I agree with/enjoy/believe in everything you’ve said here, so yay! A new friend! If you’re the stranger who smiles at people, I’m the stranger who smiles back 🙂

  3. Sounds like we have a few things in common. Nice to meet you.

  4. Congrats on all the amazing changes. You have quite the journey ahead 🙂

  5. Hi! I have only recently started following your blog but I already love what you are doing here.This is why I am nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award.

    Now, I’m not sure if you accept these awards.. but if you do want to, please click on the link ->

    Oh and congrats! 🙂 Keep up the great blog!

    • WOW. I am honored and happy and so very thankful! What a wonderful note to wake up to in the morning. I read through your link and will definitely start working on that. Again, thank you so much. You have genuinely made someone very happy today! 🙂

      • You’re welcome. I think that’s one of the reasons why awards like this were created, to recognize great blogs and appreciate bloggers like you. I too am genuinely honored that I made a difference in your day. 🙂

  6. Hello there! I took the liberty of nominating your for the WordPress Family Award. There are some duties attached, but I still hope that it’s more of a pleasure than bother. It’s meant as an acknowledgement of your work, no matter whether you accept the award or not. You can read more here:

    • Hello! Thank you sooooo much! It makes me truly happy that you would think of me for this. I am sorry for my delayed response but I have been out in the mountains camping/hiking and have had little to no service. I won’t be back home til the end of the week. I would love to accept this award but not sure when I will have time. I will have many things to catch up on when I get home and hopefully I can accomplish this too at some point. Thank you again so much! 🙂

      • Hello, Chey, and thanks for getting in touch! I’m glad that you’re not mad at me about the nomination 😉 Take as much time as you need, there’s no time limit! Happy hiking and take care 🙂

  7. Love your “about”! I agree with all you said. I don’t always do that. I will now check out some more of your posts.

    • Thank you. That’s awesome! I will do the same! I’m out of town in the middle of nowhere with spotty service, but will soon! I can’t imagine how I used the internet back in the days of dial-up! I must have been a much more patient person 😉

  8. I’ve enjoyed reading your blog before. Good luck getting on with your life… I’d say you are off to a good start. Have you written at The Speakeasy at ?

    • that’s a good challenge. Glad you liked my story. Oh by the way… Hwy 50??? I’ve been on that many times going to Tahoe.

      • I’m glad you got the reference to the Loneliest Hwy. I wasn’t sure if many would. Many moons ago I did the Hwy 50 challenge where you make all the stops along the hwy. You get a stamp at each stop proving you made the journey. Then you send it in for a sticker! That’s all you get…a sticker saying that you survived Hwy 50. Oh well, it was fun!

    • I have never heard of it. I am new to putting myself out there for all to see. It looks cool, I will check it out next week. Thanks!
