Friday night I experienced a small piece of France in Spotsylvania, Virginia. For those of you who don’t know a lot about Virginia, Spotsyvania, like many counties in Virginia, is a county in the middle of nowhere. Invited to a dinner soiree at my friend Patti’s farm, it was a beautiful, intellectual, and freeing evening that
I’ve only ever seen one dream catcher in person, and that was a fake one that I bought my dad for Christmas two years ago. It was a Redskins’ dream catcher; we all know that the Redskins need it. I’m hoping it will start working soon. We are our own dream catchers in life,
TAKE AND TRUST INSPIRATION.
You are full of ideas, dreams, love, beauty, inspiration and potential. You are, I am, we all are. However, not everyone is able to live in such a way that their true self is expressed, simply because not everyone has learned to trust and listen to what truly lies within their heart of
CONFIDENT MUSTARD SEEDS.
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. If you think that you are not capable of achieving your goal, of making a difference, or of happiness, then you won’t be. The only difference between those who achieve their dreams and those who don’t is confidence.

Thinking about wishes while being surrounded by clouds forces the mind to stretch, because, when you find yourself between somewhere and nowhere, your understanding of the vastness of your potential dreams becomes a tangible reality.

A UNICORN MARATHON
If you have ever wondered how it feels to be a unicorn, you have to look no farther than my faithfully crazy friend Nicole. After I dressed up a Piggy-the-Pig for her to keep her laughing and smiling during her Ironman Texas last month, she one-upped me for my race day with a stuffed unicorn
Music at the gym can be a grab-bag; anything and everything, and on my long work days, I can hear the same song play upwards of fifteen times. This morning though I was inspired by the sounds of Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’ echoing into my office. It made me wonder how many times I have
