30 things because I’m 30(ish)

I was inspired by another radio gal,Alabama talk about her year of bama. She focused on goals she wanted each month varying from finance to relationships. So I put my own twist on the idea. So for the next 5 months by my next birthday I will do 30 things on my list. I’m compiling…

Happiness: hope through the crazy.

Picture above during the bargaining stage at my first full-time radio job. Maybe my happiest moment is that the best is yet to come. Don’t we all search for our happy? There are thousands of books,  motivational speakers and blogs trying to find the happiness that alludes our life. I guess if I were going…

What’s happiness… Maybe letting go… 

I’ve learned in my 30 years on earth “things” rarely bring me happiness. In fact I almost feel they’ve held me back. I had the same bedroom  furniture since I was little. During the trading spaces era I repainted the bedroom furniture and had it until 5 years ago. I was moving back to Indiana…

Live the life you want

When a life event becomes a life sentence…

Start at the beginning

I couldn’t get out of bed today. My stomach kept grinding. My head filled with negativity. Why the hell am I here?  What’s my purpose? For some reason I went scrolling through pictures. What made me happy on Instagram?  Then I realized behind some of those  smiles there were tears. I don’t want to repeat…

It’s not personal. It’s just the business…

I used to be hugely offended when another radio sister would blow me off before she really knew me. Sure we were in the same market but we don’t have to be enemies. I told myself it’s jealousy or their insecurity. It still hurt my feelings. I reminded myself the business is tough. Everyone is…

Find your new vision

I read all these inspiring books because I believe in dreams. I believe the Ryan Seacrests of my business hustled hard. I don’t hate on them because I believe like them I can make my vision a reality. I’m in the midst of finding a new vision. The new vision includes my radio talent of…
