What to do When You Don’t Know Where to Start


Everybody has dreams. But not everybody achieves their dreams. That’s just a sad fact of life. So many just think “Well, it’s a nice thought, but it will never happen.” They don’t have time, or they don’t have the opportunities, or they don’t know the right people. They just don’t have that kind of luck, or there’s already so many other people out there who are more talented so there’s no room for them.

So they go through their days fulfilling their obligations to family, work, and friends, doing everything to ignore that little voice inside that says, “There’s more. You were meant for more.”

What do you do when you know in your heart that you are not living the life you were meant to live, but you don’t know where to begin? When the burden of being ordinary when you are anything but becomes just too much to take anymore, then you are ready. There’s never a better time than right now to simply…begin.

But I don’t know where to start,” you say. That’s okay. You don’t have to lay out a whole roadmap right now. All that matters is that you do something. One step will lead to another and then another, and the way will become clearer as you go. Yes, eventually you will need to get focused and lay out a plan, but to get started one must simply take action.

Maybe you need to go back to school to achieve your dream. Maybe your dream is to run a marathon or climb a mountain. Maybe you’re an artist or a musician stuck in a soul-sucking job just to pay the bills. The first step is the same for everyone: simply decide you’re going to do it, and take action.

Think on your optimum outcome, what it looks like when you’re living your dream, and work backwards from there. Are there others who have achieved what you want to do? Take some cues from them. Reach out for advice from those you admire. You would be amazed how willing most people are to give advice and help others.

Granted it’s scary to pursue your ultimate dreams and ambitions. That’s the main reason so many don’t do it, but remember this: You were born with everything you need to be everything you want in this life. You were born with talents and gifts that were intended to be used.

You weren’t put here to trudge through your days feeling unfulfilled. You were born to share your unique abilities with the world. Quite simply, you were born to shine!

What’s your dream? And what one thing can you do today to get closer to it?



So anyway…

if you want to hear God laugh

It’s an old joke – “If you want to hear God laugh, tell him about your plans.” I swear God gets more than His share of chuckles off of me! But that’s okay; laughter is healthy for everyone. Last I checked in (so long ago because yikes, time flies!) I had just started a new running plan and was so excited about it. It was going so well…for about a week and a half.

But then I hurt my foot. I don’t know how; I blame old age. I literally stood up and went to take a step and this crazy pain came out of nowhere and wrapped around the back of my ankle, which then buckled and went out from under me. Well. Okay then. Here’s my advice: Don’t get old.  You can actually hurt yourself just getting up from a chair.

Also don’t be a stubborn ass who refuses to acknowledge a clear message to stay off of said injured foot. Because then the Universe has to get tough with you and send you a flu that will knock you on your stubborn ass for oh, say, 2 weeks or until you get the message, whichever comes last.

So all in all, I’ve spent most of 2016 so far either injured or sick in bed, and now I am starting all over again. All the strength and endurance I had gained is completely gone. Frustrating doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Obviously I need to take things slow and build strength back up without hurting myself even more. Running is getting put on hold until I can get some new running shoes, but luckily I still have my hula-hoop and my bike, which is fine for now. It’s hard to be sad when you’re hula-hooping.

Since running is not an option right now, that leaves more time for yoga. I just love, love, love Yoga with Adriene. She has a series called 30 Days of Yoga with Adriene on her YouTube channel that I am currently working through. The videos are challenging but not impossible, and she tells you how to modify any moves you’re not ready for. She has such a personable, caring way about her, and her love for yoga and for people really shines through. So if you have ever thought about trying yoga or you want to get back to a yoga practice, go check out her channel now!

So that’s what’s new around here. Starting over again. But hey, it happens. It’s okay to fall just so long as you remember this:


Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? How are they coming along?





Besides going through the gazillion pictures I took on my cruise and then on my recent trip to Nashville, I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately. What is happiness really? Why are some people seemingly happy all the time and some people never happy? How do you know if you’re really happy? What do you do if you’re not?

In general, I’m a pretty happy person most of the time. But this wasn’t always the case; I’ve had periods of depression where I really just wanted to give up. And while I haven’t slipped into depression, stress has been creeping into my life like a fog I can’t keep out. Not going to share details here, but times are tough right now and the situation is not going to improve anytime soon.

When you’re going through a hard time, you have to work at being happy. So in an effort to do that, this morning after my breakfast I kissed my man goodbye (while feeling grateful to have such a wonderful partner in life), and headed to the park for a run. It’s been a while since I’ve gone for a run – somehow I just got out of the habit without realizing how long it had been – and I wasn’t sure how it was going to go.

Well, it went awesome. It felt so good to be running outside in the fresh air, through the trees, hearing the birds and just being out in nature. I think gratitude is a major component in happiness and running in the park I felt grateful for the ability to run outside, something not everyone can do. I finished feeling strong and grateful that I hadn’t gotten as out of shape as I thought. And grateful that I had found a training program that was challenging but doable.


My happy place

Running through the park actually covered four things on this list of ways to jumpstart your happiness. I got exercise while savoring life’s joys, giving thanks for the ability to run outside, and definitely hit that state of “flow.”

Call me crazy but I think the universe sends signs to help us along, if we’re paying attention. In the same day that happiness was on my mind I came across the picture at the beginning of this post and felt compelled to share it, found a doable running training program, found the book “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin (can’t wait to read it!) and this post by Karen at One Salty Kiss, which reminded me of the importance of gratitude. It’s like happiness was just jumping up and down, waving its arms yelling “Hey, don’t forget about me! I’m right here!” Well okay, universe, I’m paying attention.

Remembering to be thankful for even the smallest blessings can make even the biggest problems easier to get through. We all have something to be grateful for. What are you thankful for? What is your strategy for getting through stressful times?


Caribbean Cruise on the Carnival Sunshine: St. Martin/St. Maarten

I recently took the trip of a lifetime (so far!) to the Caribbean and I honestly regret not traveling more before now. In my entire adult life, except for one girl’s weekend to Pleasure Island (now Citywalk) in Orlando damn near 20 years ago, I have never been on a vacation just for the sake of vacation.

I have traveled back to my hometown, I have traveled to my brother’s home in South Carolina, and I have gone to visit family in Texas. None of these trips count because the only thing I saw on all of them was my family’s homes, which is nice but hardly counts as vacation.

So for my first vacation I went all out! An 8-day cruise to the Caribbean and I made the most of it, or at least I tried to. I toured the island of St. Martin/St. Maarten, saw a demonstration of Batik and then toured a historical fort in St. Kitts, went horseback riding in Puerto Rico, and wrote messages in the pristine sands of Grand Turk.

And I tried to take as many pictures of it all as I could. I am by no means a great photographer and my camera is pretty cheap, but I do love taking pictures and plan to learn to take better ones in the future. For now, these will have to do.

First stop was St. Martin/St. Maarten, a 37 square mile island divided roughly 60/40 between the French and the Dutch. We arrived at the port of Philipsburg, the Dutch capital and I met up with the tour group and we headed out. Our tour guide was Dennis, and he was very entertaining as well as knowledgeable; he told us all about the history of the island.

I absolutely love butterflies so I picked the tour that went to The Butterfly Farm (Les Ferme des Papillons), of course. It was smaller than I expected and we didn’t get to stay very long, but our tour guide Molly really knew her stuff. I heard that a recent hurricane had wiped out some of the species of butterflies they usually have and I noticed that a sign I saw in pictures beforehand was not there anymore, but still a very nice stop.

This was one of the coolest creatures there, and it’s actually a moth not a butterfly. It’s an owl moth, named so because of those spots that look like the eyes of an owl – their way of tricking would-be predators.

I thought this mural on the wall by the gift shop was pretty cool.

Next we stopped in Marigot, the French capital. We had about an hour to walk around and explore. Just about the first thing I noticed was this juice stand on the corner.

rasta juice stand

So Rasta…I love it.

This was the message on the side.

St. Martin Rasta juice stand side

Right around the corner from the rasta juice stand was this guy – Coconut Man. He was chopping coconuts so fast I was worried for his fingers!

St. Martin coconut man

Marigot is overlooked by Fort Louis, built in 1767 on the orders of the ill-fated King Louis XVI. From here you have an unblocked view of Marigot, Simpson Bay, and Anguilla. No one could sneak up on Marigot. It doesn’t look like much from this picture, but I’m told it’s incredible. Next time I visit I will make sure to take a tour of it.

St. Martin Fort Louis Marina

Marina Fort-Louis is very popular with yachters as you can access it easily from the ocean and it offers 150 berths.

St. Martin boat in water

In front of Marina Fort Louis is this cannon, just kinda in the street there with traffic diverting around it. I don’t know anything about this cannon except that I found it an odd place for a cannon and so I took a picture of it.

St. Martin cannon

I didn’t know anything about this statue until I got home and searched Google for info because the inscription on it is all in French, but apparently it is to commemorate the new  status of St. Martin as a commune of Guadaloupe. It’s called Monument to a New Beginning, and was erected in 2007.

St. Martin birds statue

On Wednesdays and Saturdays clothing and souvenir vendors join the food vendors at the Marigot Market. This is a statue dedicated to the market women of Marigot.

St. Martin market woman statue

Next to the statue is a plaque that reads:
“Many souls, thousands ten thousands have trodden
Through my open-air gallery.
Fish, fowl and beast are my treats.
Selling, purchasing, the exchange of coins is like music to my ears.
I am the market in splendid beauty, color and sound.
I reign.
I am the market”

There were these lovely mosaics on the walls of the marketplace.

St. Martin flags

I only recognize the flags of Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands here. I’m not sure what the other two are.

St. Martin La Vie en RoseDowntown Marigot is so charming!

marigotI’m sure I’m about the millionth person to take this same picture, but I couldn’t resist. It looks like a postcard to me.

St. Martin sign in portBefore I knew it, it was time to head back to the port. I ran into one of my travelmates and decided to try the local rum.

St. Martin view from the pierPulling away from St. Martin/St. Maarten much too soon for me!

So that was my trip to St. Martin/St. Maarten. I really enjoyed it and I already can’t wait to go back. But I know I missed so much of it! Have you ever been? What was your favorite thing about it? What should I make sure to see/do next time?

Fall is Here! Sort of…

14401369-20201853-thumbnailOfficially it’s the first day of Fall, and I don’t know about everybody else but I am sooooo ready for Fall. My friends and family Up North – that’s anybody above the Florida-Georgia border to us Floridians – are already enjoying some Fall weather, but here in the Sunshine State it is still either hot or raining. Or both at once.

Several weeks ago I was already so tired of the brutal, unrelenting heat that I declared Summer over and proclaimed it to be Autumn already. To make it official, I decided to make a stew that reminds me of Fall, and this is what I came up with:

fall stew


Fall Stew

1/2 package of bacon, divided – I used thick-sliced Applewood smoked bacon
2 1/2 pounds stew meat (beef short ribs work well also)
1/3 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 large carrots, sliced
1 bottle amber lager – I used Third Shift Amber Lager, but any amber beer you like is fine
2 cans French Onion soup
2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 to 3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped

Combine flour and salt in Ziploc bag or shallow dish and coat beef.

Cook half of bacon in Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crisp; remove with slotted spoon and set aside. Brown half of beef in bacon drippings until brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from Dutch oven, cover and keep warm. Repeat with other half of bacon and beef.

Add minced garlic and sliced carrot to Dutch oven and sauté 5 minutes. Return beef and bacon to Dutch oven.

Add French Onion soup, beer, brown sugar and thyme. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 45 minutes. Uncover and cook another hour, until beef is tender.

Serve over egg noodles or along with mashed potatoes.

So there you have it, Fall Stew. What’s your favorite thing about Fall? Besides pumpkin everything lol. Do you have a favorite Fall dish?

Back in the States and Back on Track

Ok, well, physically I got back here over a week ago, but mentally I just now got here. The Caribbean is too pretty to just leave! The cruise was fantastic, but coming home was a bit of a readjustment. 8 days is plenty long enough to get spoiled. My first night back I was hit with the realization that there would be no shrimp cocktail for dinner that night. In fact, there would be nothing for dinner if I didn’t cook it myself. Ugh, reality. It’s harsh sometimes.

I had every intention of eating healthy and using the gym every day while on the cruise, but I actually only made it to the gym 3 times and while I ate healthy, I also ate a lot. The food just kept getting better and better toward the end of the cruise. I will keep that in mind for next time. In fact, I gained back 5 pounds in those 8 days. That harsh reality again. Even on vacation, calories count. Sigh, life can be so unfair.

But it wasn’t all a week of falling apart. I did run on the treadmill 3 times, which is not so easy on a rocking ship. And I did improve some. I can run longer at a time than I could before and need less recovery (walking) between running intervals than before. And I ran 5K to see what my time would be now and improved by 3 minutes and 4 seconds. That made my week – and I was having a pretty good week!

So now that I’m back on land, it’s time to get back on track. Time to get back to choosing foods more wisely, making exercise a priority, and getting enough sleep. Starting Monday, I will set weekly goals again and have weekly weigh-ins again.

This week I will post pics of the beautiful places I visited – St. Martin/St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan, and Grand Turk. I already can’t wait to go back to the Caribbean! I don’t care if I go back to the places I just went because there’s still plenty I didn’t get to see or a new place. Cozumel looks very intriguing and I hear St. Thomas is beautiful.

What’s the best vacation you’ve ever taken? If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?




Random Things That Made Me Happy This Week

To be honest, I had a really bad week this week. I got some news that is very upsetting and has me fighting depression. Unfortunately it’s a situation that I can do nothing to change and am just going to have to get through it. One thing I can do to keep the depression at bay is to take pleasure in the little things. So today’s post is just a list of random things that made me a little happy this week.

1. My furbabies always make me happy.


My furry family (+ 1)

See that adorable kitten on the porch? He adopted my porch a couple of weeks ago. He runs every time I come near him but he doesn’t go far. I’m 95% sure that he’s the brother of my little black one, because the mother is a black and white feral cat around here who is always pregnant and no one can catch her. She’s a ninja I swear.
This little black and white cutie hangs out on my porch most of the day. On the corner of my patio is a palm tree and he hangs out in there. He’s adorable even though he’s a little bossy.

2. I hate my apartment, I really do. It’s basically a slum run by greedy slumlords who don’t care about anything but money. However, it is in a great location. It’s right next door to the library, which I love. I’m there just about every day. When you walk in there’s this awesome sculpture:


How cool is that? It’s called “Preparing to Shrug” by the artist Joe Thompson. He’s a sculptor from Georgia who now lives here in Merritt Island, Florida and he makes art out of found objects.

3. Finally got to read the March issue of Cooking Light and it was a good one. So many yummy-looking recipes.


Here are the ones I’m going to try:
Seared Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Polenta
Grilled Scallop Scampi Kebabs with Arugula and Herb Salad
Pork Chops with Balsamic Roasted Vegetables and Gorgonzola
Pasta with Bacon, Shredded Brussels Sprouts, and Lemon Zest
Braised Fennel with Parmesan Breadcrumbs
Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

4. Found this workout DVD at the library:
untitledI love ballet and dancers have the absolute best legs. This workout is pretty challenging but it’s fun, too.

5. From my apartment I can see the launches. I’m not sure what this mission is, I just heard the rocket going up and caught this pic from my back porch.


6. I tried Tzatziki for the first time. Yum! Seriously, where has this been all my life? Why did no one ever tell me about this stuff?


7. I got a bike. It’s really ugly and the seat swivels but it’s better than walking everywhere. I’ve always loved summer, but this over 90 degree heat every. single. day. is just about on my last nerve. Bring on fall, already!


8. My hula hoop! I just love my hula hoop. I get in about 10 – 20 minutes of hula hooping just about every day. It’s kind of addicting. You should get one.

9. And last, but not least, this adorable video of this baby getting glasses and seeing clearly for the first time. I am really nearsighted so I totally know that feeling of not being able to see clearly and then getting new glasses and being amazed by the world all over again.


So there you have it, a list of things that got me through this terrible week. What was good about your week?

Savory Chicken Breasts with Garlic-Thyme Sauce


One of my favorite things to do is to play around in the kitchen and see what I can come up with. Yesterday I decided to try to make something new with what I had on hand and this is the result. I’m calling it Savory Chicken Breasts with Garlic-Thyme Sauce. Doesn’t that just sound all fancy and delicious?

Well it is delicious and it might taste fancy, but it’s super easy to make and not too hard on the budget either. And it’s full of garlicky goodness. I’m a garlic fiend, can’t get enough of it myself. Now on to the recipe:

Savory Chicken Breasts with Garlic-Thyme Sauce

2 – 5 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 – garlic cloves, sliced very thin
1/2 tbsp. butter
1 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. white wine
1 lemon
1 large pinch dried thyme

Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and flatten to a uniform thickness. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
In skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and brown chicken breasts about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
Melt butter over low heat and soften garlic in the butter until it’s almost translucent. Don’t brown the garlic.
Pour in chicken broth and scrape brown bits off bottom of the pan. Add white wine, lemon juice and thyme. Turn heat to high. Simmer and reduce the sauce until it’s thick, about 20 minutes.
Pour any juices from the plate into the skillet and stir. Pour garlic and sauce over chicken and serve.

See, easy-peasy, right? Hope you enjoy it!

Besides coming up with fabulous recipes I’ve been mostly working out indoors because it is just ridiculously hot. I mean like, it’s literally 95 by 10 a.m. here almost every morning for weeks. And it rains every day. Which you would think would cool it off, but it doesn’t. It just makes everything more muggy.

So basically I’ve just been lifting free weights in my living room while watching Desperate Housewives. Such a fabulous life. The only cardio I get these days is the 2 mile round trip I walk to the grocery store. Until this heat wave passes, that will have to do.

But I did manage to get one big thing off my Birthday Bucket List. I ran (well, mostly walked) a 5K! It was a virtual 5K through Will Run for Bling and Charity and it was to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I ran it at the Sunbay Fitness up the road from me and which I am now trying to save money to join. And I got this awesome medal –

PicMonkey Collage

See how the lid flips up and you see the treasure inside? How stinkin’ cute is that?!

My time was pretty miserable – 42:24, which officially makes me a turtle I think. But that’s okay! I did it, and that’s what matters, and I loved it so I’ll do it again. There’s a new race coming up soon, and since it’s held September 5 – 13 I can run it on the treadmill on my upcoming cruise. This one benefits Doctors Without Borders, which is a truly awesome organization.

And the medal is super cool, too!

 lifesabeach-finalI can’t wait for this one. Hoping to come in with a much better time on this one. Never thought I would ever actually be in a 5K, virtual or otherwise, but I guess never say never.

Well, off to work out and watch Desperate Housewives, hahaha. Have a great weekend!

Mental Health Monday

Today’s post is a little different. After all if I just wrote about my workouts and food it would get pretty boring. I’ve mentioned before about my bouts with depression and anxiety so the topic of mental health is very important to me. I recently came across a linkup called Mental Health Monday, the brainchild of Stephanie at Athlete At Heart and Liz at Prior Fat Girl. I really love the idea of this linkup, as mental illness is something that we should be talking about, but so often don’t. So here’s my post:

He was six when I first met him. I don’t remember much about then but then again, I was young myself – 15 – and besides it wasn’t him I was there to visit.

He was 11 when I gave birth to his nephew. It was Christmas Day when his brother, Danny and I brought little Nicholas home from the hospital to a very excited Uncle Nick. For weeks Danny and I had tried to decide on a boy name and we were coming up with nothing. Christmas carols about St. Nicholas prompted one of us to suggest Nicholas as a boy name. We both decided we liked the name and settled on it. When we told Nick the baby was going to be named Nicholas, but we would call him Nicky, he was even more excited.

From day one, Nick was thrilled to be an uncle. Since they were only 11 years apart, Nicky grew up with Uncle Nick as just as much a big brother and best friend as an uncle. They were as close as close could be.

He was 27 when he put a gun to his head and ended his life.

I remember the shock when I heard the news. By this time I was living a thousand miles away in Florida and no one told me for a week or so. I was so sad for myself and his family, but the sadness quickly gave way to anger.

See he had called Nicky at about 5 a.m. to say goodbye, but Nicky was asleep and didn’t hear the phone. Nicky felt like if he had answered the phone he could have talked Nick out of it. For so long, I was furious. How could he put my son in that position? To feel guilt and the added pain of thinking he could have stopped it if he had only heard the phone ringing?

How could he be so selfish when he had never been selfish before? How could he hurt those who loved him so much? Furious doesn’t even begin to describe how I felt. Rage filled me.

But rage is exhausting. You really can’t keep it up for very long without serious damage to yourself, and so I was relieved when the rage began to fade. Sitting in his apartment with a gun to his head is not how I wanted to remember Nick. Nick, the sweet boy with the big smile on his face as he held his nephew that first Christmas Day. Nick, who loved baseball and cats. Nick, with the wicked sense of humor and amazing smile. Nick, who could barter agreements between me and his brother after our marriage disintegrated. Nick, who could make me laugh no matter what was getting me down. That’s what I choose to remember now.

It’s been 7 years since he left us, but he still crosses my mind often. I no longer try to figure out why he did it, because I know I will never understand it anyway. I simply thank God for the good times we had, and for the love and guidance he gave my son while he was here. I pray that he is at peace now, since he never had it in life.


Everyone goes through hard times, everyone gets sad sometimes, but not everyone experiences long-term depression or has suicidal thoughts. But suicide is never the answer. Suicide does not take away the pain, it just gives it to someone else. Fortunately, there are many places to get help.

International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day is November 21, 2015. This event is a day for people who have been affected by suicide loss to gather together to gain understanding and to comfort and support each other through sharing their stories. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention produces a documentary each year to be included in all Survivor Day events. This year’s film is titled Family Journeys: Healing and Hope after a Suicide.

They also hold Out of the Darkness community walks to raise awareness about depression and suicide and to raise funds for research and programs to prevent suicide.

The suicide rate in America is alarming. In 2013, there were 41,149 deaths by suicide. That’s one every 12.9 seconds. Of those, 90% have a diagnosable mental disorder, usually depression. If you or someone you know is exhibiting signs of suicidal thoughts or intentions please get help quickly.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

Healthy 4th of July Recipe Roundup

4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. Cookouts and fireworks. I mean, what’s not to like? In general most of the food served at 4th of July celebrations isn’t exactly healthy. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ve rounded up some healthy recipes for a July 4th celebration to share.

 e425a4ae75e74c7eb7e01b2643e06307It’s been ridiculously hot everywhere lately. This Pomegranate Limeade by Domestic Superhero looks positively refreshing!


I love potato salad. But not that grocery store potato salad. I don’t know why, but those premade potato salads from the grocery store just never taste that great to me. This  Vegan Rainbow Potato Salad from I Love Vegan looks absolutely scrumptious.

This Festive Fruit-and-Veggie Salad from Veggie-Quest just looks like fun to eat.

Grilled-Lemon-ChickenThis Grilled Lemon Chicken is simple, summery, and delicious. Recipe from Chef-In-Training.

Cabernet-Burgers-with-Blue-CheeseBurgers don’t have to be boring. This Cabernet Burger with Blue Cheese from Chew Out Loud gives a plain old burger some gourmet pizzazz.


Can’t forget dessert, right? With temperatures here predicted to be in the high 90’s all week, a frozen dessert is a natural pick. These Red White & Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles are patriotic as well as healthy.


These US Flag Pops from Super Healthy Kids are a fun way to get kids to eat some fresh fruit. They can help make them too.

 So there you have it. Hope you have a happy, healthy 4th!
