I reeeeeeally didn’t want to go

Last week was overwhelming and exhausting. By the end of the week I had nothing left in me. Friday night I just wanted to pop a movie in for the kids and flop on the couch until bedtime.

In this week’s video, I share a little bit about what I decided to do instead. Check it out!

That Time I Was in the Psych Ward

Just over a year ago on November 18, 2016, I was admitted to the Behavioral Health Unit at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Florence, Kentucky. ​

Never would I have imagined how this year turned out.

I’ll let this week’s video tell the rest.

Gratitude is an Action

Happy Thanksgiving week!

I figured it would only be appropriate for me to do a video about gratitude this week. Check it out!

In this week’s video, I talk about

  • Feelings versus actions
  • When I kind of hated my sister
  • Reframing
  • Showing gratitude

Showing gratitude is a great way to maintain a positive mindset. Click this link to explore more ways!

Ashamed of My Past and Afraid For Their Future

On Saturday, November 11 2017, I attended the Premiere and Day Retreat for StrongHER.

StrongHER is an up and coming non-profit passionate about empowering women in their real relationships with God everyday; encouraging and equipping them with relatable and user friendly tools and testimonies to inspire confidence and creating warriors for Christ.

Two of the speakers at the​ retreat covered the topics of shame and fear. While I didn’t think about it while I was listening to their message, I’ve had to overcome a lot of shame and fear in one particular area of my life.

In this week’s video, I talk about that shame and fear.

My apologies in advance for all the background noise. I was talking quietly so as to not be super loud in there. As it turns out, their noise overwhelms my speaking. And I have zero video editing skills, so I got as far as clicking “remove background noise,” so that helped…like…not much at all. You can hear me, just try reeeeally hard to ignore the talking and tables being collapsed in the background.

No Means No!

Do you ever find it hard to say “no”?

Maybe you feel mean saying “no.” Maybe you think you’re letting someone down by saying “no.” Maybe you’re just so used to being a “yes woman” that you’ve forgotten how to say “no.” 

Check out this week’s video that details how to say “no” and the freedom that comes from saying “no.”

In the video, I talk about:

  • ​The 3 types of saying “no”
  • The one thing to avoid when saying “no”
  • One thing to include when saying “no”
  • Freedom

What’s something you can say “no” to this week? Let us know in a comment below!

Happy “no”-ing!
