So What’s Your Story?

How many times have you told yourself a story about you and then made it come true?

The answer is we all do it, we just may not realize it.

Last week while on vacation in The Dominican Republic I did something I was pretty sure I would never do.  It honestly was not even on my radar of something I would ever do. I just don’t do “those” types of things.

Workout Wednesday

The beach is on my mind this week. I’m headed to the Dominican Republic in a few days which means bikinis and shorts for 6 days.

Today is Ground Hog’s Day.

But, what I am going to talk about today is the movie, “Ground Hog’s Day.”

Where Bill Murray wakes up every morning only to repeat the same habits and actions each day and he receives the same results.
