From A New Day

Times I Didn’t Listen (and why I’m proud)

Hello friends! I’ve been listening/watching several inspirational speakers (Rachel Hollis, Ashley Lemieux, Mike Lemieux, and Stuart Edge) which is really pumping me up to be myself! ❤️ Today I thought I would share the times in my life that I DID NOT LISTEN to others opinions of me and that makes me proud of myself. Many years ago in admiring (someone close to me-their coworker physical workout and body improvement) I said “I want to do that, I want to do what they did” – to which my loved one said- “you can’t do that, what makes you think you…

Bad January

Oh my gosh friends! I just realized I haven’t posted for almost a week! Wow, time flies when I’m busy! I hope everyone is doing well; I’m looking forward to January ending I’ve gotta admit. It’s not my favorite month. Poor January, it’s like the Monday of the whole year! At least living in Utah it feels like that; snow, inversion, slick roads, no sunshine ever, and super low temps so most nights I’m afraid my pipes will freeze (like 10 degrees and lower) But yesterday and today we’ve had sunshine and I’m hopeful that good weather is possible at…

New Year Renewal

Hello friends! Happy New Years Eve! I hope you are all ready for 2019! How did the year go by so quickly?? I’m happy for a new year; it’s like a fresh start (and of course then there is spring {after snow melts in a couple months}and everything in the earth is new too)! I…

Hair Saga

Hello friends and happy Sunday! I thought I’d share some of my continuing hair ideas. Most of you know I have hashimotos and struggle with fluctuating hair loss. A few months ago I purchased a couple of Halo extensions. One problem I have is that if I’m not wearing the extensions, I need to pull…

Celebrate with Shorts

Hello Friends! How was your weekend? I hope you and Monday are making peace with each other 🙂 Me and Mondays don’t always get along that why I wish this for you LOL I thought I would share a new found discovery: I haven’t worn shorts in about 16 years. I think I was always…

Real Talk about Hair Loss

Hello friends! I thought today would be somewhat different. I want to share my experience with hair loss. In 2012 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease and my thyroid surgically removed. Back in 2004 I was diagnosed with hypothyroid and I think things went downhill (health wise) after that, although the last couple of years…

Week full of tripping

Hello friends! I told you I would update on my trip to my clients service. My trip started at 130 am… wait what?? Yes I accidentally woke at 130 and finally just dragged myself out of bed at 145. I figured it was hopeless to try for 15 more minutes of sleep and actually I’m…

Save Yourselves! It’s too late for meeeeee

So last night as I got home, and being that I’m now an empty nester, all of a sudden found myself with TIME on my hands (seems to happen most every night) and I thought I would head over to Target to look for a jacket. I’m joining the hubs and a sweet couple we…

A New Day

So today I took down all the Halloween décor’. You might have seen my pictures of hanging candles in my front entry; those took about an hour and a half to take down. I made them a couple years ago from Pinterest. I took a whole bunch of toilet paper and paper towel tubes, dripped…
