The "Right" Time

The most common question I ask myself when making decisions is, "Is this the right time?" I probably ask it (or some variation of it) at least once a week, sometimes once a day. Sometimes it might be about small things such as, "Is this the right day to clean the house?" or "Is this the right time to buy this (or should I wait until payday)?" Sometimes it's about medium things such as, "Is this the right time to have this serious conversation?" or bigger things such as "Is this the right time to buy a new house?" My bet is that you likely ask yourself this same question with various situations in your own life.

Whenever we're facing the thought of a big life change (switching jobs, ending/entering a relationship, moving, etc.), it can be easy to think that if we just do it at the "right" time that it will somehow be easier. When we get caught up in thinking this way, typically one of two things happen: we either don't ever d ...

Single on Valentine's Day? Read this.

Maybe it's just me, but it felt like Valentine's Day decor infiltrated the grocery store aisles sooner than usual this year. I saw chocolates, hearts and teddy bears out before January 1st in some places. While there are definitely single people out there who fully tune out Valentine's Day, laughing it off as a stupid, commercial holiday (and genuinely being okay with being single on this day), there are others out there who experience Valentine's Day as one of the hardest days of the year. If you find yourself struggling on this day, my guess is that you've felt some judgement towards yourself at times. You may have thought to yourself, "Why does it bother you so much? Just get over it. You're a loser for caring about this day." If that applies to you, keep reading. It's time to let some of those judgments go. 

Let's think about a few scenarios for a second. Would you tell a grieving widow that she's stupid for feeling sad on Valentine' ...

When Your Year Sucked.

When one year is ending and a new one is about to begin, most people feel full of optimism and hope. They may reflect back on all the good things that happened to them in the previous 365 days or they may feel motivated to set new year's resolutions and actually stick to them for the 365 days that are about to follow. It's a time of change and transition as we shift years and in this case, shift decades. 

But what if your year...sucked? What if it was such a bad year that thinking ahead to the new year to come doesn't make you feel anything except hopeless and down? What if you're really struggling to find something to look forward to, let alone something to make a resolution about? What then? 

I'll be honest: 2019 was one of the best years of my life. I got married. I made big strides forward in my business. I had a wonderful year. So why am I writing a blog about 2019 being awful? Well, because I kno ...
