KEEP YOUR OWN KEY

I saw this over the weekend and it immediately spoke to me. At first, it seemed simple enough. Just keep my happiness key in my own pocket and BOOM – all problems solved, right?

Get The Notion & Backfield Motion

The power of the past is undeniably strong. When visited properly, its a healthy resource providing us with perspective, humility and inspiration needed to evoke change in our life ahead. Yes, reflection is a good thing…..as long as we don’t get lost while looking back. Like gazing into a mirror,  staring too long into the past can distort the truth and become debilitating to your future. Getting lost in the “shouda-coulda-woulda” of former events stunts growth and often brings aboutRead more

Don’t Go There….

It goes without saying that life is hard. Harder than we’d like or could ever have imagined at times. No matter how perfect another’s life may seem, trust us, it’s not the bushel of roses it appears to be. In fact, sometimes where one person sees sweet-smelling petals, the reality is really a whole bunch of thorns. Everyone goes through struggle….Everyone. And unless you’re living in a vintage Disney movie, they never really seem to end. They DO however get easierRead more

Look At Things Differently…

Sometimes in life we can have the worst tunnel vision. We search high and low for ‘the best thing to ever happen to us” never realizing that more often than not, it was already there with us to begin with. Whether its something to excite us, or a person to love us, maybe a way to be entertained or inspired or a just something to break us out of our fuddy-duddy rut, it’s much easier to seek outwards rather than in.Read more

What 200 Calories Really Looks Like

When it comes to eating smarter and healthier this year, we decided we really needed a bit of help. All lifestyle changes require more discipline than most of us are comfortable with and the frustration that follows is what often leads to failure. Armed with new ideas found last year on how to make our “foodie change” this year a bit easier to maintain (like a new take on smoothies, ways to drink more water deliciously, organizing our fridge, etc) we are ready to getRead more

Change is Scary…Regret is Scarier.

With the coming of the new year comes personal reflection and more often than not, strong vows of change. Whether it’s the desire to work out more, stop dating a ‘certain type’, start an entirely new career or maybe it’s just to make more time for our loved ones, all are vowed with genuine intent. However, as each year proves, it’s not long before “IT” happens – LIFE. We soon get back to business as usual and the excuses toRead more

Got Something To Hide? BOOK IT!

Finding new ways to repurpose is as innate for us as breathing. In our minds, everything has a dual purpose. Every. Thing. So while out and about on a ‘hunting expedition’ at the local thrift store we came across a gem so amazing, so sultry, so blissfully perfect, we just HAD to snag it. What’s so sexy about a book you ask? Well dear kiddies, this isn’t just any book. It’s a GAME. We couldn’t believe our ‘luck’ when weRead more
