March Madness - Day 1

When given a challenge, how do you respond?

Option 1: Accept it and work towards your WIN
OR
Option 2: Avoid it and let the idea DEFEAT you

What even is a challenge?

Dictionary.com defines 'challenge' as "a call or summons to engage in any contest, as of skill, strength, etc." It also defines 'challenge' as "difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it."

Before you allow DEFEAT to seep in, consider the advantages of embracing your challenge:

  • Challenges increase your confidence.
  • Challenges can create healthy habits in our lives. 
  • Challenges can allow us to learn more about ourselves.
  • Challenges often force us to grow outside our comfort zone. 
  • Challenges are not always easy, but are always worth the outcome.
  • Challenges really are not against anyone else. YOU and your own challenger.
This is your WINNING season so it's time to step up and challenge yourself. 

Stop waiting for life to happen to you. YOU make life happen. 

Stop making excuses for why things are changing in your life. YOU create the atmosphere for change to enter your space. 

Stop allowing fear to consume you. YOU are more than a conqueror. 

What are you waiting for? Challenge YOURSELF to something new. RIGHT NOW!!


Let me know what you will challenge yourself to. I want to walk with you, encourage you, uplift you, and celebrate with you!

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
