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!

They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
