    You can reinvent yourself

    You should always be growing. By knowing about seven-year cycles you can reinvent yourself and keep life fresh and interesting. The story that goes with this picture really happened. It is the picture of my graduation from the fire training academy. In 2012 I hit a wall. My work felt stale. I didn’t feel valued or appreciated. I was suffering from burnout. The more I struggled to make a living, the worse it got. The phone wasn’t ringing and I found myself looking for part-time work just to get by.

    May is mental health awareness month

    In honor of mental health awareness month, I decided to blog a daily idea for improving your outlook and lifting yourself out of depression, sadness, anxiety, loss, betrayal, or anger.  Frequently the focus of mental health is actually an illness.  I want to direct the conversation toward health, positivity, and self-love. So here is this week’s list.  Stop comparing yourself to other people. You are unique and unlike anyone else. When you compare yourself, you ignore your inner self and limit your self-expression. Be you. Set goals for yourself.  Every day.  Set one small goal to be happy. Keep yourself always moving forward. Smile in the mirror. Yes. Smile at yourself.  It…
