All Your Eggs in One Basket

Regularly I read my devotional in the morning and it hits a cord with me and I use that as my jumping off point for a post.  Well, today was no different. Today’s writing reflected back on putting all the author’s eggs in one basket.  There was a season in her life where she feltContinue reading “All Your Eggs in One Basket”

Nothing to Lose

Hello, my name is Stephanie and one of my biggest challenges and maybe also biggest strengths is that I will tell you exactly what is on my mind. Want to know what I really think about something?  Just ask, because once it is out there in the universe I have a very difficult time keepingContinue reading “Nothing to Lose”

Yoga: Truth

Another day that the hubs had to wake up early to go to work.  He doesn’t usually work on the weekends, which is super nice.  Inventory is tomorrow though, so he has been working really hard to prepare. Anyway, that meant another day where I could get my yoga session in before the kids wokeContinue reading “Yoga: Truth”

Oh What a Beautiful Morning…

Let me tell you about my morning so far! I woke up about 4:00am.  My husband has been going into work early and getting out late this week, he is prepping for inventory.  I have been waking up with him.  Not because I have to, no I don’t have to.  I want to though.  HeContinue reading “Oh What a Beautiful Morning…”

Do Your Thing

I am currently reading a devotional called Savor by Shauna Niequist.  It is wonderful, it is 365 days long and I started it back in May and I am just reading through my year until I get back to where I started.  Who says you can only start a dated event/book/reading on January 1st? AnywayContinue reading “Do Your Thing”

My Body Knows…

My affirmation this morning read…”My body knows how I can get better.”  Well if that isn’t the truth. I have already walked around my room long enough to add up to 1000 steps for the day.  Sometimes I don’t get the opportunity to get in all the steps I would like, so I create opportunity. Continue reading “My Body Knows…”

Ten Minutes: Living in My Body

Do you ever think of your body as a friend?  Do you have compassion toward it?  What would it look like for you? -Shauna Niequist This was the question at the end of my devotional this morning.  It really spoke to me, so I knew that I needed to write about it. From Sunday toContinue reading “Ten Minutes: Living in My Body”

Embrace the Joys of Summer

My devotional today is about embracing the body that God gave to us.  Not sitting on the side lines because of what we think that we look like.  Truth is…hardly anyone is actually even paying attention to what it is is YOU look like. “I want to find any and every excuse to stay covered,Continue reading “Embrace the Joys of Summer”

First Day of my 2nd Act!

For the last month or so I have been calling my current stage in life my 2nd act.  I am 37, I will be 38 in August.  So, it is probably pretty safe to say that I am in the 2nd part of a 3 part life. The last day at my 9-5 was lastContinue reading “First Day of my 2nd Act!”
