Breathe deep, it’s going to be wonderful!

Can you believe it’s finally here?

Take a deep breath, and savor what is. Those things that are still unfinished will get finished to the degree they need to be.

Delegate what you can, let go of what isn’t essential, and focus on what matters most.

My Unexpected Hawaiian Chronicles

We just returned from a big family trip to Hawaii (thank you, SkyMiles). Before leaving on the trip, I promised myself two things: to be present and nonproductive (okay, except for outside of the 6-hour flights—when else would I get that kind of golden time??) 

And funnily enough, something magical happened. Although the sun, waves, and family connection was to be expected, I experienced something new.

The Hawaiian Chronicles.

What, pray tell, are those?  The name I g ...

However, from my own learning I’d love to share a few “Definite Dos” that have hit home for me over the past week in handling, helping, and ...
