What does it mean to Thrive? Blossom, flourish, advance, prosper…

IMAGINE… Dream, that’s thriving… For me, there is only one choice… It’ll be three years in February 2019 since the loss of my husband to suicide… the weight of sorrow will always be there but somehow you manage to push through.

IMAGINE… Dream, that’s thriving…

For me, there is only one choice…

It’ll be three years in February 2019 since the loss of my husband to suicide… the weight of sorrow will always be there but somehow you manage to push through. The lingering after effects, the sense of abandonment. It’s a constant battle, but you learn to work through it…

Find ways to Thrive…

Dog sledding in Alaska, on a glacier!
He stole my heart…

It doesn’t have to be anything grand or outlandish. For me, it’s the simple things in life. Traveling seeing the world, experiencing life through scenery, the beauty of the outdoors. Old friends and so many new friends, oh my friends are so important; surround yourself with positive uplifting people always. Fitness staying in shape, anything outdoors, fresh air, stopping along the way to take it all in. The beauty of music; ahhh nothing better than a great song, inspiring lyrics to keep you uplifted and motivated. Lastly, my little guy “Haze”. He’s an enormous curly haired chocolate labradoodle who stole my heart the moment I set eyes on him. He’s my joy, my peace, my world. Always there to greet me when I come home.

Inspire, be a role model…

You never know who is looking up to you, wondering if she did it so can I. So be the one… inspire, love, live in the moment, accept peace and enjoy the simple things in life.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
