Self-Care and Wellness Management

Self-Care is sensible, not selfish.

You take care of so many others. Who takes care of you?

Treat yourself like your own best friend.

Treat yourself today with that one special gift you always wanted.

Spend time in a moment of relaxation and gratitude.

Take care of you, no one else will.

Speaker for Women’s Retreats

Bayside Community Church hired me to deliver a weekend long inspirational and thought provoking Women’s Retreat entitled “Discover, Activate and Elevate!” From Friday night till Sunday morning, we laughed, cried and laughed some more together. This incredible group of ladies welcomed me with open arms.

I wanted to share some of the feedback from these wonderful women:

“Thank you again! I know you reached so many ladies.”

“This weekend changed my life!”

“I made up so many excuses not to get into action. You and your story has motivated me to volunteer and take better care of myself!”

“You reminded me to take care of my temple and do what I am passionate about!”

“I feel alive again! Full! And so so loved!”

TOPIC: “Who’s Taking Care of YOU?”

I am excited to be conducting a Staff Development Training to Afterschool Providers and Staff in Pasco County Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019. Due to high demand, I will conduct 2 workshops.

This workshop is interactive, high energy and engaging! None of my audiences just sit there and listen to a lecture.

The topic? Self-Care and Wellness. Yep, we will talk about how to Prevent Burn-Out. Actually, the audience will walk away with 6 new ways to prevent burn-out and 3 ways to recover from burn-out!

Get ready to have some fun!

Hurricanes create Community!

After returning from evacuating Hurricane Irma here in Clearwater, Florida…
What you don’t see or feel on the media is what Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma created….a sense of Community!

Neighbors smiling at you, strangers asking you if you need anything, friends inviting you over to use their water for that nice hot shower, hours and hours of work from first responders, electric company linemen and sharing electric to charge our only tool for communication to family and friends throughout the world or a hot meal offered by that ‘friend’ on Facebook that you have not actually met in person yet.

How is it that tragedy brings out the best in one another?
When we experience the worse, it brings out the best.
Basic needs are valued more, life is priceless and relationships mean the most after traumatic moments.  It evens the playing field.

Today, I am grateful.
I am grateful for each and every person I have in my life.  I thank you!
