Ironically, this majestic journey was taking place when I hit bottom.
Now that is a gift!
I know it has been a while since I blogged, but enjoying my family time here in Iowa. I had promised you back in March I would tell you the real reason that was behind this road trip when it was coming to a close. (Now, just hear this, My Magical Mystery Tour may never end. Hoping to checkout music around Florida when I get home and I still want the Pacific Coast Highway next summer. ; )
I hope this finds you enjoying you summer! Ok, Ok, I admit it…. I love living like a Hippy here and wish I could do this indefinitely. ;) Not sure yet when I will return to Florida, but I know I will continue recording more local musicians and travel around Florida on the weekends once in a while to find more music when I do return. I am simply following my instincts on this one, which is God leading me when I am calm.
This is the week of house sitting in Ar...
I will be here in Arizona till around July 20th. I have been having so much fun with Lisa Brooks family and she has an awesome one! I will be house sitting with two of their dogs. Yogi and Daisy, so they will keep me company during the 10 days they will be gone. It will give me time for solace, reflecting, working out (get rid of the little chub I gained), swimming, working online, and blogging. Oh yeah, and finding music around this city... but the rest time is oh...
When I began this Magical Mystery Tour I really didn’t have a plan, then I began to put one together. I had my agenda and looks like God had a different one. Ya know, I had a feeling it would be different. The music is here and there, but always on with my headphones an...
Today I am blogging from Phoenix Arizona! The temps have been 106-109 and honestly, I handle them fine. I am handling them as well as the hottest months in Florida, but this is a dryer heat. Of course, it is still hot. I am liking the dryer heat tho… Visiting all these different climates, elevations, places, etc it is always in the back of my mind if I would like to move there. I think once I return to SW Florida I will be able to reflect all in hindsight.
I have some true blue f...
As I sit here this morning on June 17th without the internet, it is giving me time to write this blog out and publish it later. Funny how so many things in life that stops these days if no Wifi access. However, you can still find things to do if you try. I have been in Colorado almost a mont...
I am still in Colorado until June 17th or 18th, then I road trip down to Phoenix for a while to see another GREAT friend in my life and her family! True Blue friends are rare in life, and I feel so lucky that I am visiting them on this journey. Getting away from SW Florida has helped me with clarity and working out all the things that are weighing on me and have for some time. There isn’t one person in my life who knows all the details, but a handful or less know most. It...
I have been in Iowa now for about a month and getting ready to leave for Colorado on May 23 (Monday) on my Music Crawl across the USA. Can’t believe this trip here I have been this sick, but better now than when I get on the road again. I was so fatigued I had begun to wonder if my motivation and energy was gone for good! I am on the mend and getting my FIRE back every day. My next festival is Bands in the Backyard, Vineland, CO June 17 & 18. Sawyer Brown, Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down, Alaba...
Today is my first of (hopefully) many blog posts during my road trip of music festivals across the USA. There are some areas that do not have a festival of my liking, so I will be visiting Cancer Centers too. My sister died in June 2014 from Cancer about 11 months after her diagnosis. I lost a lifelong friend suddenly last year too and it is still surreal. Hers stemmed from her demons of addiction she fought. I will talk more about this during my blogging time too. Enablers ca...
I am back!! We are updated and back online full steam ahead now! I know many of you have been a great support on Facebook and other social media sites with the rough couple of years in my life. I went through four joint replacement surgeries and recoveries in one year. (All were so worth it!) At the end of that, my sister was diagnosed with a rare form of very aggressive Cancer. She passed away this summer a little less than a year after she was diagnosed. We are all still stun...
Did your beloved cat pee in your NEW tennis shoes? Happy Monday everyone!!
Well, you know, my 18 pound cat Maggie Pie pee’d in my new tennis shoes I bought last week ON SALE! Ok, Ok, they were Beall’s Outlet 25% off (because senior citizens day and I had a 10% coupon). Sniff, sniff, they were gray with electric blue soles and matching laces…this aging cat (10 years old) seems to be confused lately and I have had him (Yes, yes, I have heard it all before. He is a bo...
** Sorry so late! Sitebuilder was down for days.
It is Christmas time for you that celebrate this time of year! Each year that goes by seems to whizzz faster than the last. It is true that the older you get the faster time goes by. I try to savor each and every moment I have of each day. After being in poor health for so many years and finally the joint replacements surgeries that changed my life and gave the old "Me"...
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
We all casually talk about our blessings in life or do you really give thanks? We celebrate this holiday with good friends and family along with an abundance of food followed by foo...
You are as unique as a snowflake, so keep it beautiful, soft, and strong in design! Each of our lives have common threads and very unique characteristics we never want to lose. Each year we gain additional wisdom we will grow and develop our true self. This will only happen as long as we are working on ourselves and forgiving our mistakes. The lack of forgiving ourselves is like a snowball rolling down hill; it gains speed and grows larger fast into a heavy, huge burden that will halt self-...

My first tree in years! Love it~
I hope you have begun to be excited
for the holidays in your home. Yes, Yes, I put up my tree already and it’s my
first in years because of the downsizing/selling my home, living with others
for over a year, moving from Northern Iowa to SW Florida, and my 4 joint
replacement surgeries in one year. (Yes I hear you - Thanks giving is first and I will be blogging this too)
The Holidays can be just like we dream as it should be in our lives, but the...

Do you ever crave love and acceptance?? If so, do you look around and criticize others for not giving you enough love and affection? This is happening to too many people these days and here is another tough question.
Who is the common denominator? Yes, you are....

Everyone has a passion we just need to dig it out! Passion is a
common topic these days everywhere you go. I remember about 10 years ago when I
lived somewhere else and talking out loud about this new, wonderful Passion I had found. Well the two women
I was talking with busted out with laughter and yup, mocking me. It did not deter me what so ever. (Personal Growth
Industry & Psy Major in College) They may have left a memory for me, but I
still go full steam ahead!
is your week going? No matter how bad it can feel we always have a choice. Yes,
you heard me right we have control over
how we choose to handle it. Each event, moment, or conversation can be a
learning experience whether it is simply patience or knowledge about something.
We have the choice in our attitude...Check out our Freee self-coaching.....
How would you change your attitude?
Think about it and share with us!

I found this quote and this theme is so what I love to share! The failure rate can be high in personal success because people simply quit when things get tough.

Abundance checks are a tool we can use to create more abundance in our lives. They are written within 24 hours after a New Moon.
To my surprise, through my research I have read that you really don’t even need to be...
Busy-ness has been a common topic to discuss amongst people as well as my coaching clients and it often is a complaint to many others. Do you complain about being too busy in life? I know I have and mostly I simply THRIVE when I am, so you can only imagine what it was like for me to be so stifled physically keeping me stuck at home with my rotten joints and the snowball effect from that. Then surgery and recovery ...
Good Morning again!
Do I have your full attention now? ;) Another gooorgeous morning here in SW Fl☼rida and I count my blessings daily! Recently I have been very busy with outside activities and things around here. Including working out on my Elliptical 5 days a week. (Great workout - Great sweat!) I stopped again yesterday just to look around at what I just did in the last 15 minutes. Wow, my life has drastically changed for the BETTER! It has been so long it boggles my mind. I even lai...
The coaching industry is one of
the hottest independent business markets for the work-at-home entrepreneur. It’s
flexible, versatile, and a career that can truly make a difference in someone's
life. Sadly, even the best-intentioned and well-trained coaches can struggle to
get their businesses off the ground. Here are the five most common mistakes
made by new coaches and how to avoid them. These are the top ones I keep
hearing over and over since 2004. Read the full article here!
I woke up to 61 degrees this morning in SW Florida. To a Floridian this is coooold (and to me)….Brrrr…so I must be acclimating well. So many people bring up immediately when you mention living in Florida the HOT summer months (which the hottest is about 2 months). I like to think of it as lesser of two evils. You have to weigh the good and bad in many situations and people you choose into your life.
I am from NC Iowa and it is much cooler and sometimes damp many months ...

Morning Morning! It is time to create a great week! Find
three items to look forward to this week whether it is something to create or
you already have planned. This will keep one of many sparks going in your life.
Skill for Life: When disagreeing/fighting with someone in your life, focus on the Feelings NOT the details. The details can kill a relationship with just one argument or keep resentment alive in relationships.

To Appease or not to Appease
I have 10 days until D-day (done
day) for my last joint replacement surgery!! #4 in 1 year. I am preparing my
apartment for when I return home with a positive message on my chalkboard
doors. (picture below) April 17th is D-day here and I am getting everything ready for the couple
of months following surgery. I have done this so many times with all the
surgeries in my life, I know by now what I will need nearby, so I can care for
I am tossing aro...
It’s sunny and coooold here in SW Florida this am. My weather bug for my area states 44° out this morning, but suppose to be in the 80’s this weekend. I am just hoping for something in the seventies to keep me warm. Brrrrr…Yeah, I know I shouldn’t complain since the north is getting slammed with snow once again. Take care all!
I am on my last week of this term in school and taking the next term off. This...
